SIX APPEAR CURED
BV FAITH-HEALER
Washington Blind and Halt
Treated by Bishop Who Se?
ceded From Mrs. Eddy.
LAYING ON OF HANDS DID IT
Effort Exhausts Preacher, Who
Assails Mrs. Eddy, Dowic and
Sandford as Money-Seekers.
Washington, November s. ?A well
dressed crowd in the smell ballroom
at ttuuscher's yesterday watched with
breathless Interest what all admitted
us appearing to be tho complete cur?
ing of half a dozen porsons by the luy
IhK on of hands. Hlt-iiop Oliver C.
Sabin, of the Evangelical Christian
Science Church,^n offshoot from Mrs.
Eddy's institution, was Ihe lieu lor, and
after soemtngly effecting tho cure of
six patients, all of whom appeared to
he suffering greatly when they came
and showed great happiness when
they left, he declared himself too ex?
hausted to proceed. A number of ap?
plicants for treatment were gent away
disappointed.
Before he called tip the patients for
treatment the bishop announced that
lie could not cure scoffers or those
who disbelieved |n the power of Cod
to cure all things. He bitterly assailed
Mrs. Mary Baker 'I. Eddy, the foundert
of the church, from which lu- some
years ago broke away, and arraigned
her, with Alexander Dowle and Krank
V.'. Sandford, of the Holy Ohosters, as
fakers, aiming only at making money.
Their assumption of superiority, lie
said, came not from any d.-slre to
spread the truth, but from the love of
gold. That explulned, he said, bis
breaking off from the "Mother Church"
to enter the Church Evangelical.
Mrs. J. F. Manny, of till Nineteenth
fctreet. Northwest, wan first summoned
to the desk by the bishop It appear?
ed that he selected her first becayss?,
to the spectators, she seemed to be in
greatest rain. Her head was swathed
In cloths, and she groaned at intervals.
She explained that she had long suf?
fered from abcesaei on the eyes, and
that for nine weeks she had been to?
tally blind in one eye. Her husband.
who accompanied her, substantiated
her statement.
The bishop put his hands on her bead
end prayed In silence, slowly passing
bin hands over her eyes. Her groans
continued for a time. then ceased.
Gradually a smile flickered over her
face and gtew. At last she was radi?
ant, and sank back from the appar?
ently exhausted prelate, her face uX
presalvo of relief
"You feel better?" ask> d the bishop.
"I feel tine," she announced posi?
tively, "and for the tirst time In
months. 1 can s*e from my blind eye.
and tho pain,- have ceased."
Mrs. Annie Heed, of 3^6t Fourteenth
Street, was the n'-xt patient. She . bin
plained of rheumatism and pal IIS in
her head and feet, and she walked
haltingly with a cane. The bishop
went through his former prayers, this
time, passing his hands over li?r head
and down her back. Soon her face
brightened and in a moment, stepping
back, she straightened up without the
need of her stick. She pronounced
herself cured, and when she left the
building she left her cane behind her.
Four other patients then <.amo up
who refused their family names. They
gave their Christian names to the

it Is feared thai a state "f anarchy
such n>: exists In Amoy will follow
In Peking. The condition is being
watched closely, in case It should be?
come necessary to call an Interna?

Justed the claims growing out of the
Boxer uprising, with a view to agree?
ing on a common line of action In
China to IriHurc the protection of for?

The American Red Cross Society to?

Shanghai. November '?. - The most In?
teresting development in Shanghai to?
day was the completion of the organi?
sation of a local cabinet by the revolu?
tionists. Wn Tlnp Fang, who former?

The appointments, however, nre not
taken seriously, the appointees denying
knowledge of the action of the revolu?
tionaries, except In the case of tho
Civil Administrator, who has been act?
ing in that official capacity through?
out.
Wu Ting Fang, while declining to
acknowledge any participation In the
revolutionary administration of Shang?
hai, openly sympathizes with It. al?
though criticizing some of the methods.
He la bitterly opposed to the Manchu
clique In Peking.
Dr. Wu says that if the revolution
hopes to wjn It must scrupulously re?
gard the rights of foreign nations and
Individuals. This, as time progresses,
will bo found difficult because of tho
conflicting views held In different prov?
inces.
Tho government at Peking has In
j strueted the viceroy at Nanking not to

alarm has been expressed by persons

The muster rolls, which have been

We Get a S
The big coffee trust, made up of Brazilian growers
and American importers, has been trying various tactics
to boost the price of coffee and get more money from
the people.
Always the man who is trying" to dig extra money
out of the public pocket, on a combination, hates the
man who blocks the game.
Now comes a plaintive bleat from the "exasperated"
ones.
The Journal of Commerce lately said: "A stirring
circular has just been issued to the coffee trade." The
article further says:
"The coffee world is discussing what is to be the
future of coffee as a result of the campaign of miseduca
tion carried on by the cereal coffee people. We have
before us a letter from one of the largest roasters in the
South asking what can he done to counteract the work
of the enemies of coffee.
