MOVE IS FAVORED BY 1HE CLERICAL BRANCH Effort to Have the Denomination to Approve Devine Healing Is Led by New Hampshire Minister and Big; Majority of Clergy Votes for the Measure. CRy Associated I'ress) CINCINNATI. OHIO, Oct. 11.?A resolution giving 'he sanction of the liotesiant Kpiscopal Church to the healing of the sick by prayer was adopted in one section of the house! 02 deputies of the Protestant Kpisco-I pal conference today, but was defeat-j ed in another section by the narrow i margin of live votes. The voting was by dioceses. That a majority of the house of I deputies were In favor of the report was shown clearly when the clerical branch adopted it by a vote of 41 yeas to 17 nays, with nine dioceses not voting or divided. The laymen of the house, however, killed the report by a vote of 27 ayes. .'12 nays, four! dioceses not voting. It required a! majority in both orders of the house to carry the report. While the tpiesiion will come up before the house of bishops at some future date, it is regarded as improb able that the upper house of the con? ference will take any action on it. Explains Position. It< v l.m-ious Waterman, rector of BL Thomas church. Hanover, N. 11.. presented the report. In doing so he explained thai he bad no fear of th? word "sui>ernatural." He continued: "If Jesus did heal silk in the first century in a suiternatural manner he can do so today; and to recognize that faith is not to put the church i:i the position of not recognizing! modern science. While the limits of modern science have been reached, we have not reached the limits of the power of God." Rev. H. M. S. Taylor, of Atlanta, endorsed I>r. Waterman's resolution. He said the Kpiscopal church had been taken in the dark in the matter of divine healing. "It is our own fault." he declared, "for this magnificent gift was given to us by our blessed Lord in the begin? ning. This jiower of restoring the s:ck by prayer was thrown away bv our church, and a woman picked up that jewel. Now. I say. let us take back our own and use this magnifi? cent gift in the name of the church. Opposed by Laity. The laity of the house of deputies, as a rule, opposed the report. While the large vote polb-d for the resolution came as a surprise, the belief prevailed tonight that the sub? ject would not be revived at this con? vention.
