Your own fault. See below. It is basic LaTeX and any LaTeX person can tell you the answer...(most probably haven't bothered...)

\eqn{{\bf\beta}_j} is already syntactically complete, so latex complains the next "_" is not in maths mode, and automatically switch into maths mode for you (the $ inserted message) You have to match all the braces - you need 3 right-braces after \eqn, like this, at least:

\eqn{ { {\bf\beta

           }_j
        }
        {\bf\beta
        }_ ....
        {b(j)
        }
     }
