Thus Bishop Samuel Fallows,
noted as a divine, and for his practice
and advocacy of the world famous
Emmanuel movement for pastoral
healing of the sick by suggestion and
the laying on of hands, last night ex
plained the power behind the preach
er to a large audience In the Willis
Wood theatre, in the course of a lect
ure on the topic of "Healing in the
From the bishop's viewpoint the
injunction given to the disciples by
Christ to go out into the world and
preach, teach and heal the sick, was
widely Inclusive, and still In force.
He said there Is no reason why the
preacher, with hi3 mastery over the
minds of his flock in religious mat
ters, could not cure members of It by
the laying of the hands.
"It is the purpose of the Emman
uel Society to form local combina
tions between the ministers and the
doctors for the purpose of healing the
75 per cent of nervous and mental
diseases known to exist in the sum
of all the ailments to which the hu
man body is heir," said the bishop.
"Physicians all over the country
Inform me that only one-fourth of
the diseases they treat In a year are
real and that suggestions If proper
ly made might work cures for the
great majority known as mental or
nervous ailments. Why not let the
preacher increase the sphere of his
usefulness and follow out the Divine
dictum? I am in favor of it, many
ministers throughout the East are in
favor of It, and I am sure the medical
profession would welcome it as the
Godsend which It would really be.
"Some people are confounding the
Emmanuel Society with Christian
Science. I have many friends
among the Scientists, so-called, and
I have no unkind word for their or

that wherever its doctrines touch a
church, whether it be the Roman
Catholic, the Episcopal or any of the
Protestant churches, it disrupts
