SON OF WM. F. MANLEY CURED
WITHOUT THE AID OF
BUT IN CHRIST'S NAME
History of the Case as Told by the
Father of the Boy in His Own
On Wednesday, the Jrd day ot j?eD-
ruary, my wife received a letter from
my son Ernest's wife, and one also
from her mother, Mrs. J. "NY. Russell,
of Independence, Kansas, stating that
Ernest had fallen and received such
injury in his back that inflammation
had set in and gradually extended to
his brain. That he had been wild
crazy for nearly a week, and knew no
one. That four men could not con
trol him. So the doctor was keeping
him under the influence of morphine,
and said he could never be any better.
He advised that he be sent to the asy
lum. They urged that some of us
should go to Kansas immediately and
assist in caring for him. Mrs. Man
ley made arrangements and went on
the midnight train that night.
I wrote the following letter to my
son, and mailed it about noon the
same day. This letter has been re
turned to me, by my request, for
Richmon d, Ind., Feb. 3, 1004.
My Dear Ernest and Alta:
We received Mrs. Russell's and Al
ta 's letters this morning, and were
much distressed over your condition.
I knew God could heal you, and that
He was in Independence, Kansas, so
I took the matter to Him in prayer.
Then I commanded in the name of
Jesus Christ that the demons, who
had attacked you, should now depart
from you; and the assurance immedi
ately came to me, that God had en
forced this command. I then thanked
God for the deliverance, and prayed
for your complete healing, in the
name of Jesus Christ.
After that I commanded in the
name of Jesus Christ, that every joint
in your back bone now go into its
proper place; and that any injury
that the spinal cord had received,
should be immediately healed. That
all inflammation of the spinal cord,
and of the bruin, and muscles, should
depart. That all soreness, and pain,
in your entire body, should be re
moved. That all disease in your en
tire body should now leave you. That
vour nerves should be soothed, and
calmed, and that you should sleep
II111C V U1U1I I'llUITIV JVMtU.
I have the sweet assurance that all ,
this is now done lor you !v the Uod i
of Heaven, through faith in the name
of Jesus Christ. And that you are
now resting in sleep, at ten o'clock,
Kansas time, Wednesday morning,
February .. Affectionately, and in
the name of Jesus Christ,
W. F. Manley.
I wrote to three of my children
who are from home, giving them all
these facts. I also related all these
circumstances to more than a dozen
persons in Richmond during the fol
lowing four days.
On Monday following I received a
letter from my wife, saying that she
did not reach Independence, Kansas
until Friday evening, and that Er
nest knew her and the doctor was
amazed at the change. That Ernest
had been kept under morphine contin
ually since Wednesday.
On Monday, the 15th, she wrote a
fuller account of his recovery, say
ing, On Saturday after I reached hese
Ernest improved very rapidly. On
Sunday he wanted to get up, but all
advised him not to do so.
On Monday he got up, and went all
over the flat building where he is liv
ing. On Tuesday he went down town
and paid his gas hill, and in the af
ternoon he and Alta went out shop
ping. On Wednesday he took the train to
with his fafher-in-law.
All the people in this building and
neighborhood who called on him
while siek, are surprised beyond
measure, at his sudden recovery. But
none are more surprised, than the
doctor who treated him."
Signed, Lydia G. Manley.
I have all these letters to show any
person who desires to see them.
Edward Evans, a colored man, liv
ing at 922 north eleventh street, Rich
mond, Ind., was also suddenly healed
of neuralgia on January 12, after an
attack that had lasted almost contin
ually for ten days, when I layed my
hands on him in the name of Jesus
Christ, and routed the disease, and
commanded it to depart.
I disclaim having any power of my
self to do these things. Jesus Christ
has called me to do these things, in
His name. He gives the power and
He shall have all the Glory. This is
not Christian Science, is not hypnot
ism. Is not fakeism, but is the work
that Jesus and the Anostles fontimi-
1; , h i e earth, and is
j without money and without price.

beautifully to her audience."

for the funeral to occur the husband

wife was postponed and both funerals
This is a rather peculiar circum
stance and looks providential. The
couple were quite old and had en-joj-ed
the company of each other for
so many years that it was a coinci
dence most remarkable.
We are having sleet and rain today
for a change. In the past two weeks
we have experienced some very disa
greeable weather. A cold, cutting
wind has been blowing almost con
stantly for a week, and the dust was
something fierce. The snow and sleet
of todav will at least settle the dust.

FOR SENATORIAL HONORS AND
GIVES REASONS WHY.
THINKS HENRY COUNTY
Will Concede the Nomination to Fay
ette or Union His Letter.
C. W. Stivers, editor and proprie
tor of the Liberty Herald would like
to wear the legislative toga and in
the following letter explains the case:
Liberty, Ind., Feb. 15, 1904.
It was known to my friends, four
years ago that I was an aspirant for
the nominatiaon for State Senator
and I desire now through your pa
per to say that in ease the supreme
court decides the apportionment act
of 1903 to be unconstitutional, as now
seems probable, that I will-be a candi
date for state senator in the district
composed of Fayette, Henry and
Union counties. Henry county hav
ing held the senatorship for eight
years will certainly be willing to con
cede the nomination to one of the oth
er counties in the district.
Fayette county has had a repre
sentative in the legislature in her joint
association right along, but Union
has not had a Republican representa
tive in either branch of the General
Assembly for fourteen years and feels
strong in her claim to recognition.
Personally I have confidence in the
fairness and sense of justice of the
Republican voters of Henry, as also
of Fayette and Union, and am will
ing to stibmit my candidacy with that
of competitors to a popular vote of
the district and abide the result.
Fortunately all three of the coun
ties have adopted the popular vote
method of selecting candidates, and
if we return to the former apportion
ment I shall ask as one of aspirants
that the choice be decided in the way.
Yours for Roosevelt, Bevdridge and
Charles W. Stivers.

TATE SET FREE
BY JUDGE FOX
HE RENDERS A LENGTHY TYPE
Says Witnesses For Tate Told the
Truth or Perjured Them
selves. In the matter of the extradition of
Clarence Tate, tried in the Wayne
circuit court, Judge Henry C. Fox,
after hearing all the witnesses for
both sides, rendered his decision this
morning in a six-page tj'pe-written
statement. Our readers are thorough
ly conversant with ihe case, and, as
the opinion is lengthy, we only pub
lish the closing paragraph, which is as
"If the testimony of Clarence Tate
and of the six witnesses who corrob
orate him is true that he was in
Richmond on the evening of the first
day "of November last, then his guilt,
as testified to by Ellis, would be im
possible, for he could not be in the
city of Richmond and at the same
time be -with Ellis in the state of
Ohio as he, Ellis, swears.
The six witnesses who corroborate
Tate as to his being in Richmond
on the night of November first, stand
unimpeached. They all fix the date
as being the day after the railway
wreck mentioned. William Tate, the
father, and his two sons, in addition,
say they know it was the day the
daughter returned from Washington,
which was the next day after ihe rail
way wreck: This makes the time
reasonahy certain. These corroborat
ing witnesses are all reputable citi
zens of the city of Richmond. They
are not mistaken in their testimony.
They have either told the truth or
committed perjury. Now the question
is, shall I reject their testimony as
unworthy of belief and accept that
of Fred Ellis, who is a confessed and
convicted felon f
In my judgment, it has been made
to appear clearly that the petitioner,
Clarence Tate, was in the state of
Indiana at the time the crime charged
against him was committed in the
state of Ohio, and that, for this rea
son, he is not a fugitive from justice.
The petitioner will be discharged.
Henry C. Fox,
Judge of the Wayne Circuit Court.
