Stetson, tho excommunlcatod leador of tha First Church of Chrlst, Sclentlst. ln thls clty, of hor convlctlon and that of tnany Christlan Sclcntlsts through? out the country of tho Imminence of the rosurroctlon ln fleshly form of Mary Baker Eddy, tho founder of the Chris? tlan Sclence cult, had tho effect t.o-day of forclng tbe dlrectors of the Mother Church of the fnlth ln Boston Into vehement. denlal of thn orthodoxy of Mrs. Stotson's doctrlnes and thoae of her followers who belleve wilh her that Mrs. Eddy wlll mako a demon stratlon of her triumpn over death. even as Jesus Chrlst dld ln Palestlna ?,000 years ago. It also became evldent to-day that. the dlrectors of the Mother Church In Boston. who havo been left as su? preme arblters of tho faith whlch Mrs. Eddy dlscoverod and hullt up, have heen forced to meet o distlnct. llne of cleavage ln the ranks of Chrlsttan Sclcntlsts throughout tho church by thelr actlon, qulckly selzed upon by Mrs. Stetson, ln rtropping from the mantial of tho Mother Church the nam? and tltle of Mrs. Eddy as Pastor Emer Itus, of the parent church ln Boston. B.v thelr actlon. the dlrectora have declared themselves ln the matter of an eccleslastlcal dlfference of opinlon in a way whlch threatens to npen wider the breac.h between the "prac? tlcal" and the "vlslonary" devotees of tho faith. No Longer Pastor Kraerltus. Eugene B. Cox. th? mouthpfeee of the dlrectorate ln Boston, said that Mra. Eddy's name had heen dmppe.l from the roll of the offlcers ot tb* mother church fooeause. she was no. longer pastor emoritus. That portion of the church whlch belleves with Mr3. Stetson looks upon this action of tho dlrectors as Indicativo of rank lark of faith, slnco to tholr notion Mrs. Eddy stlll lives and still is pastor emoritus, lor leader over her puptls.' Thero also appeared to-day the flrst deflnlte indlcatlon that the crystalllza tlon of Mrs. Stotson's vlews concerning the inevltable demonstratlon of Mrs. Eddy ln tho flesh forccasts a rencwal of the strlfo between tho factlons ln. tho Flrst Church of Chrlst, Sclentlst, In thls city, when tho annual electlon of trustees shall take placo ln .lanuary.

"Thore is nothing ln the teaohings of Christlan Scicnce nor the wrltlngs of Mary Bakor Eddy, its dlscoverer and founder, to justlfy any 'statements looklng to physlcal resurroction. and any tondoncy or thought in that dlrec tlon ls abnormal ln a Christlan Sclentlst, as it takes account of thc porsonallty of Mrs. Eddy. whlch she deprocated. Idea llepUKnnnt. "To attempt to delfy lier or make her cqual wlth God or Jesus the Chrlst ts equally repugnant to the normal teach Ings of Christlan Sclence. When asked lf she were tho second Chrlst. Mrs. Eddy said: 'Even tho question shocks me. What I am is for God to doclara ln Hls lntlnlte mercy. Thero was and ?is and ever can be but one God, one Jesus of Nazareth.' "Such autlioritative statements by Mrs. Eddy should forover put at rest any wild and vislonary ideas regarding rosurraetion or renppearing ln hodlly form. Mrs. Eddy gavo to the world Christlan Sclence. a domonstrable knowledge of good, and thls wlll for? over remain. "Statoments tendlng towards the dol flcatlon of Mrs. Eddy and roferrlng to lu r resurroction recently promulgated by one who was oxeommunirated from tho Mother Church by the board of directors ln thelr offlcial capaclty, for Incorrecft leachlrig and practice of Christlan Sclence. should set tle nll douht that has or may exist as to the, proprletv of such exeommunieutlon." lt was frooly said in Christian Scl? ence circlos to-day tliat Mrs. Stetson bad added grcatly to her following by lliilng tho lnck in faith had by many and bv showing tbe dlrectors in Boh ton to bo "on the sldo of mortallty."
