‘God Help Human
Race/ Says Pastor
on Modern Ideals
NEW YORK, June 21—“ God help the
human race if the sort of science that we
saw exemplified and glorified in the
World War, Is to be looked up to as
producing the modern ideals of the com
ing generation,” said Dr. John R.
Straton, pastor of Calvary Baptist Church
today, with regard to the assertion of
William Morris Davis at Harvard com
mencement, that morals really belong
more to the field of science than to the
field of religion.
“Professor Davis’ whole argument
seems to have been found upon a series
of false assumptions. For one thing, he
assumes .that scieuce has brought great
benefit to the world, but says nothing
about the far greater benefit that religion
has brought.
“Another argument of Professor Davis
is that religion, a* he puts It, has ‘tres
passed upon the proper field of science'
because religious leaders have preferred
to hold on to God's revelation rather
than to bow to human speculation. I
will only say that, whereas there 1*
scarcely a scientific textbook now ten
years old that is not out of date, the
Bible, after all these thousands of years
is still doing business at the old stand.
'The facts of revelation, verified by in
dividual Christian experience—as, for ex
ample, tny own conversion, from a life of
sin to a life of service—are facts far more
real than the alleged “facts” which bol
ster up some of the scientific hypothesis
of today as for example, the little bas
ket full of mouldy bones, which had been
dug up haphazard from different parts of
the earth and are paraded before us with
their grinning grewsomeness as “proofs”
of the cheering supposition that we are
descendants of monkeys, rather than chil
dren of Almighty God.
“1 therefore, dismiss with a considera
ble degree of amusement, the manifestly
absurd statement of Professor Davis that
morals belong to the realm of science
rather than the realm of religion.”
Plans for the re-capitallzatlon of the
LaFayette Motors Company of Indian
apolis, which brings $2,000,000 additional
funds to the company submitted on May
29, have been approved by stockholders
at a special meeting at the Hotel Bel
mont, New York City, according to word
received by officials here today.
In a statement E. C. Howard, vice presi
dent and secretary of the LaFayette Com
pany said, “with this indorsement from
stockholders tha LaFayette is placed on
a sound financial basis and is now pre
pared to go so: .card with plans for an
orderly progress and an uninterrupted
production schedule.
“This is a reorganization In a financial
sense only and will not affect the per
sonnel of the factory organization or de
sign and construction of the LaFayette
car. The Lafayette will benefit, how
ever, by the closer contact of Charles W.
Nash, president of this company as well
as the Nash Motors Company of Kenosha,
Wis, Mr. Nash will bring to this com
pany the benefits of a manufacturing and
executive experience in the motor car
industry which began more than twenty
years ago.

Stewart, while employed as an inspec

the chemistry department. They were
married In Wilmington Nov. S, 191S. Tills

Dec. 3, 1918, and he had her placed in a
hospital. Then he disappeared, detec

turned and begged forgiveness, which
she granted. Later they lived in New
York and Newark. He again disap
peared for two months.
On his return he told his wife Ethel
M. Turner Osbaldeston had entered his
life and he did not wish to remain In
New York. While en route to Detroit
nfter leaving New York, Stewart per
suaded her to assume the name of Mrs.
Mitchell and pretend she was his sister
in-law, as he declared the Osbaldeston
woman might follow him, detectives say.
Stewart did not live with his wife, who
was posing as his sister-in law. He told
her he was staying at a hotel room pro
vided by bis employers. He went home
only to change linen. A baby was born
April 3, 1921. On July 21, 1921, Stewart
kissed his wife and the baby good-by
and told her be was going a-vay for
good and that she soon was to boa
widow, detectives say.
Detectives 6ay that in June. 1921,
Stewart courted another woman, Ger

went to Boston where Stewart under the
name of Donald Allan McGregor, Sept. ,
21, 1921, married Norma Ehrenseller. lie
is alleged to have stolen SI,OOO from her
parents and $1,500 from the girl. He is
said also to have given her a worthless
check for a fur coat which he took from
her. In Boston the Osbaldeston cornsu
posed as his sister, Jean McGregor, de
tectives say. This was at the time the
marriage took place. She is alleged to
have urged Miss Ehrenseller to marry
Stewart. Stewart was indicted in Bos
ton on charges of polygamy, grand lar
ceny and conspiracy. The Osbaldeston
woman was Indicted for conspiracy. Fol
lowing the marriage Stewart fled from
Boston. He deserted the Osbaldeston
woman and she returned to New York.
The Osbaldeston woman is said to have
declared Stewart had hpr under the In
fluence of drugs during her entire stay
at Boston and that she knew nothing
of the wedding.
Detectives say Stewart's real name Is
Robert Allan McLaren Browne, born In
Edinburgh, Scotland, and that he is the
son of Dowd Browue, a clergyman, now
deceased. They allege he was ordained
a Presbyterian minister in New York in
1009 and that his first church assignment
was at Dundee Lake, N. J , where he
is alleged to have a divorced wife and
three children living.
His commission as a minister was re
voked because of his connection with
the suicide of Mrs. Maude Hendricks at
Heyward, Cal., Dec. 30, 1914. Mrs Hen
dricks, wife of a Western Pacific Railroad
engineer of Stockton, Cal., became in
fatuated with Stewart and on his re
fusal to marry her committed suicide
by shooting herself, detectives say. The
body was found in an orchard end near
it was a love note for Browue. as Stew
art was known.
Investigation at that time developed
that Stewart had previously iived at the
Thomas Hotel, San Francisco, with Mrs.
Hendricks, who ho is alleged to have
represented was his wife.
Before the coroner's Jury in Heyward,
which Investigated the suicide, Stewart
was referred to as a parasite and was
arrested on a statutory charge, which
was dismissed Jan. 5, 1915, because of
Insufficient evidence. Stewart is snid to
have had churches at Paterson. N. J..
Saunderson, Texas; Douglas, Ariz., and
Chico, Cal.
He posed as a reformer and took credit
for cleaning out the red light district at
Hamilton, Cal. He also conducted a tem
perance campaign and was associated
with Mrs. Annie E. K. Bidwell of Chico,
and Is said to have written a song en

Indianapolis architect, In competition with

The nurses home will be four stories
high, of brick and concrete fireproof con

It is understood Stewart was living
at Sierra Madre, a suburb of Los An
geles, with tiie Osbaldeston woman when
they were arrested.
Indictments were returned by the,
Marion County grand Jury against Stew
art in December, 1921. The Indianapolis
detective department assisted th Pinker
ton agency in its efforts to find Stewart
following the issuance of the check to
the Aetna Trust Company. Authorities
say Stewart will be brought to ludan
apolis for trial.
"I thought he was dead,” said Miss
Bertha Ellen Grannla today when tobl |
by a Times representative that Donald
Alllster Duncan Stewart was under ar
rest at Los Angeles.
“Ho is not my husband.” she added.
"You see I had the mnrrlage annulled
ten months ago. I lenrned of Mrs.
Mitchel in Detroit, she was Stewart's j
wife. It was on that ground the mar- ]
riage was annulled. I won't appear in j
court if he is brought back here. When
I want to forget, and when I thought he
was dead, it al! comes out. There is so
much of it, I don't know If it will ever
all come out.”
Miss Grannls admitted she was Intro
duced to Stewart In Detroit by her broth
er. She said she knew Stewart was from
Scotland, but did not know his name was
Robert Alan McLaren Browne, and she
was surprised when told that the
Osbaldeston woman was Stewart’s wife
and was other than a life Insurance com
pany's investigator.
"We were not married at the Ciaypool

the pastor of the Congregational church,"
she said. You see my father was a
