Dowieites Kill Two More Children.
Probably there is not a week goes by without the death of some person, usually a helpless child, because of the baleful Dowie faith healing fanaticism. A late and neighboring case was the death, last Sunday, of an infant son of Henry Erea, at Valparaiso. The child had cholera infantum, and a doctor was called and left remedies. Along came three female Dowieites, however, and persuaded the parents to throw away the medicine, and rely upon their method. The child died, and the coroner held an inquest and named the three women as being responsible for the child's death. The prosecuting attorney took the facts before the grand jury and believes that conviction can be secured even under our very in adequate laws.

Still another similar case occurred this week at Hammond. A four year old son of C. E. Irish died there, of diptheria, the parents being Dowieites and refusing to allow the child any medical aid.

The coroner's verdict ascribes the death of the child to wilful neglect by its mother. It is stated prosecutions will follow, including Rev. Denius, pastor of the Hammond Dowieite church.
