WILL ORGANIZE A CHURCH How the Various Diseases Are Healed Blesses Handkerchiefs which Are Rnbbed on tho Afflicted Parts. Crowds Called Upon the Mysterious Stranarer Yesterday - Peculiar Scenes at his Ceremonies. Scores of persons yesterday visited Schrader, the divine healer. They were afflicted with various diseases and sought healing according to the Biblical method. Some of them claimed that they found the one visit sufficient; others were invited to repeat it in order that the treatment might be made more effective. The divine healer is well known throughout the country. He has visited eveTy state in the union and nearly every province in Canada. He Is a native of Ellisville, Wis. In this unsettled portion of the Wolverine state, on the shores of Green bay, he began his healing when but 13 years of age. He has since devoted his life to this business. WANTS TO ORGANIZE CHURCH. In the 19 years of his career he has been visited by thousands throughout this continent. Whenever he has visited a city he has tried to organize a church. This church is formed along the lines of the Apostlic church. He is known as the archbishop of this church. It has no creed except that found in the New Testament. It builds no house of worship, but the - congregations meet in the homes of the members. After a number of the believers are first gathered together they choose elders, or deacons, who have charge of the affairs of the church. In appearance the divine healer ans wers to descriptions oftimes printed of the Christ. He is above the medium height and is well built. His auburn hair falls in profusion upon his should - THE DIVINE HEALER. ers, while his beard is full. He wears a black robe with a purple scarf over the left shoulder and wears a crucifix suspended by a long gold chain. He has an attractive manner in his treatment of visitors. BLESSES THE HANDKERCHIEF. Whenever a person wishes to be healed he enters one room, where he is met by an agent, who takes his name, disease and like information and writes it urlon a card. This card is of two parts. One portion is kept by the healer, the other by the visitor. The visitor is then sent into another room, where he meets the healer. He shows the card giving his name and address. The healer places his hands upon the head of the visitor and then upon the breast and invokes a secret blessing. He then takes a handkerchief and holding it in his hand for a moment returns it, blessed, to the visitor. The parts affected are to be rubbed with this handkerchief until the ailment ceases. One of the visitors who were admitted yesterday afternoon when he was being interviewed had eye trouble. The one visit was deemed sufficient for her. Another woman, whose affliction could not be learned, was invited to call as often as it was possible for her during this week. She gave a small contribution. Mr. Schrader will remain in the city for at least one week, as he is desirous of organizing a church In this cltv, He has one In Philadelphia and one in Harrisburg, but has none in this part of the state, having never visited here before. The length of his visit will depend upon the success he has in his church organization; also on the num ber of visitors he will receive. DOWN ON THE REFEREE. Mr. Howard Plumley Claims That In Saturday's Game That Official Faded to Perform his Duty and Created a Situation Almost Un heard of lu tho Anunls of Football In many circles yesterday the foot ball game of Saturday between the High School and the School of the Lackawanna teams was the sole topic of discussion. Mr. Howard Plumley writes The Repub lican on the subject as follows: Editor of The Republican. Sir: I had the good fortune to be pres. ent at the Laekawanna - High School came on Saturday, and, having been a student at one of the schools, 1 wag very much interested in tne contest, xt was cer talnly a fine game, as far as It went, and both teams did some excellent .playing. read wun interest tne able renort in Tne Kepuniican. Dut was sorry the de, clslon of the referee, which ended the game, was not uiscussea more fully. The question is, "Was Lackawanna Justified In refusing to piny and leaving All lovers of good foot ball are interest ed In the facts. I arrived at the game in the middle of the first half and saw High School score a well - earned touchdown. The ball was brought out by Lackawanna and kicked off, and High School, after "rushing, lost it on "downs," and the half ended with the ball In the possession of Lackawanna near tho middle of the neki. After a great display of enthusiasm on the part of High School over their touchdown and a parade around the field the teams came out for the second half. High School kicked off to Lackawanna. Lackawanna, after some very excellent rushes, lost the ball on High School's 20 - yard line. High School rushed the ball and lost It on a fumble. Lackawanna Immediately parried the ball over the line for a touchdown. Here occurred the Incident which brought about the whole dispute, and, on account of the referee's decision, ended the game. I will quote from Spuulding's lSDO Rule Book, rule 20: "a. If a player having tho ball Is tackled, and the movement of the ball stopped, or If the player cries "down," the referee shall blow his whistle, and the side holding the ball shall put it down far a scrimmage." "b. As soon as a runner attempting to go through Is tackled and goes down, being held by an opponent, or whenever a runner having the ball In his possession cries 'down,' tho referee shall blow his whistle and tho ball shall be considered down at that spot." After Ollendyke, Lackawanna's star half back, had crossed the line and cried "down." a High School man grabbed the ball and rushed back to the High School's 8 - yard line. According to the rules It was the duty of the referee to blow his whistle as soon as "down" was called. That Ollcndvke passed the touch - down line and called "down" Is a matter about which there need be no question whateven The writer and others near liira heard him. (all. That . HEALER he had passed the line by several yards Is undisputed. The carrying of a "dead" ball back after it had crossed the line is against all precedent. It was the duty, under the rules, of the referee to stop play as soon as Ollendyke cried "down." His failure to perform his duty created a situation almost unheard of in the annals of foot ball. Lackawanna had fairly won the touchdown. It remained for her to kick the goal, making a score of 6 to 5 against High School. The team left the field because of a decision against all the rules and precedents of the game. HOWARD PLUMLEY. 0'LEARY THE BURGLAR Expert Professional who Pnzzled the Police for a Time.

Kellar, Tonlsrht. Magician Kellar will be at the Lyceum to - night. The growing of the mango tree Is a trick of the magicians of India that has been more often described, perhaps, than any of the feats of those in teresting street fakirs. The growth of tne mango, however, Is accomplished under a little shawl tent, and only the final result is seen. It has frequently been exposed and is really not mysterious at all when its secret is known. Magician Kellar, however, goes the Hindoos one Detter at their own game, for he grows a rose bush from the seed to maturity and permits the audience to witness the entire progress of the growth of the bush from a tiny shoot to the tree, five feet in height, laden with rich, fragrant American Beauty roses. These are plucked and distributed to the ladies as souvenirs at each performance. Toll Gate Inn. Manager William Malley will present his splendid company of artists In "Toll Gate Inn" at the Lyceum to - morrow night. Mr. Malley's productions are always good, and In this one he has excelled himself. "Toll Gate Inn' is more than good, it is excellent. It is a colonial romance, the scenes are laid among the Green mountains of Vermont; the period is 1770, those stirring times when every heart, except that of the renegade and tory, beat faster as news of victory of the Continentals was related by the fire side or spinning wheel. Simple was their nature, heroic were their deeds. That such a play Is of interest to every American goes without saying. ; At The Gaiety Harry W. Semons' extravaganza company, bright, effervescent and sparkling, will be the attraction at the Gaiety for three days, commencing this afternoon. Mr. Harry W. Semons has spared no expense In making this organization perfect in every detail. "Devil Among the Women" is on the farce - comedy order and up to the hour, full of catchy music, sung by a chorus of twenty handsomely costumed young ladles. During the closing burletta, which was written for laughing purposes only, several big and novel acts will be introduced. The company carries all special scenery and electrical effects. "Little Egypt" will be the attraction for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. DEATH OF MRS. J.H.BELL. Mrs. Joseph H. Bell of Peckvllle died Saturday evening after several weeks' severe illness. She Is survived by her husband, who is superintendent of the Eddy Creek colliery, and one son. The funeral will be held to - morrow. Services will be held at the Methodist Episcopal church at Peckvllle at 2 o'clock. The casket will not be opened in the church, but those wishing to view the remains may do so to - morrow from 10 to 1:30 o'clock.
