be expressed his earnest and unswerv
ing affection for thia country.
Here in Los Angeles the Catholic con

AN INTERESTING SERMON.
The Very Rev. Father A. J. Meyer de
livered an impressive sermon upon the
life and services of Pope Leo XIII. The
prießtly orator gave a very interesting
biographical sketch of the holy father
in the course of which he took occasion
to dwell upon the many manifestations
of knowledge, piety and power to govern
Bishop Francis Mora.
mankind. In concluding hia sermon
Father Meyer urged upon all true
Catholica tbe importance of reverencing
and obeying tbe holy father, in all
things, both temporal and Bpiritual.
The reverend father took for his morn
ing lesson the eixth chapter of the
second epistle of St. Paul to the Corinth
iana. In opening he stated tbat upon
tbie, the occasion of the fiftieth anniver
sary of Pope Leo XIII. elevation to the
episcopacy, it would not be out of place
to give a brief biography of the holy
father.
Leo is a native of the Pontifical states,
having been born at Carplneto on
March 2, 1810. Hia parents were of
noble birth, and Leo waa the youngest
of six children. Early in life he gave
evidence of his wonderful ability and of
hia great devotion. At tbe age'of 8 he
was placed in college by his father, and
later attended a university in Rome.
Father Meyer referred to the ability
that the holy father manifested in tlie
various stations he occupied in the
church—as governor of several pontifical
states wherein disturbances had arisen.
The holy father bad proceeded to settle
all difficulties and to heal all differences.
Ihe oanae of the troubles in the states
he had governed waa the old con flict be
tween the rich and the poor. Leo had
carefully investigated the situation be
fore he acted, and moved carefully. The
result was that within a short time all
went well, trouble diaappeared and
peace reigned.
The ability of Leo in government waa
fully atteßted by the results he accom
plished aa delegate to Spoleto, Peru
gia.. He was later seat as a papal nuncio
to Belgium, and here he showed marked
ability as a diplomat. But hia health
failed him, and he was forced to return
to Italy.
Since January 10,1816, and up to Feb
ruary 20, 1878, Leo was the archbishop
of Perugia, as Cardinal Joachim Pecci.
On February 7, 1878, Pope Piua IX
paaeed away. On the eecond day of the
same month he had given hia last allo
cument to the cardinals.
The election of a new pope had been
looked forward to with alarm, but the
conclave assembled in Rome without
difficulty. On February 18th the cardi
nals to the number of 60 convened. On
the 20th tbe cardinal archbiahop of Pe
rugia—Joachim Pecci —received 45 votes,
an overwhelming majority, and was duly
declared Roman pontiff. He gave his
blessing In St. Peter's, and was crowned
March 3, 1878, in that basilica.
Rev. Father Meyer referred to the
long life of Leo, which had been devoted
to the service of God, and in closing he
rorE LEO XTTI.
adjured all true Catholica to reverence
his name and obey his commands. The
sermon was closely listened to by the
large congregation.
HIS FIRST AND LATEST ACTS.
During the IS years that Leo has occu
pied the chair of St. Peter many reforms
have been accomplished within the
church. The first act of his pontificate
waa the restoration of the Catholic
hierarchy in Scotland. Thia had long
engaged the attention of Piua IX, his
predecessor, and had been decided upon
prior to his d«ath.
March 4, 1878, by a letter apostolic,
Leo restored the ancient archepißcopal
Bees of St. Andrews and (jlaßgow, and
created the episcopal sees of Aberdeen,
Dunkeld, Whitborn or Galloway, and
Argyll and the Isles. Thus the Catho
lics of Scotland, who had from the time
of the reformation been Subjected to
vicara apostolic, had a regular episcopal
organization.
In April, 1878, Leo issued hia firat
encyclical which foreshadowed his pol
icy, and which was regarded as a most
remarkable paper, displaying the won
derful ability, knowledge and foresight
of the holy father.
Continuing the policy of Pius IX, Leo
declined to hold any direct communica
tion with King Humbert of Italy. He
encouraged the Catholic societies of
Italy to labor especially for the Christian
education of youth. When the new
government of Italy prohibited religious
instruct ion in the schools Leo protested
strongly.
During the entire 15 years that Leo
XIII has filled the chair of St. Peter he
has always manifested the greatest in
terest in the United States and upon all
occasions he has recognized this as the
greatest republic on earth. One of his
latest acta was the appointment of Mon-
Bignor Satoli as apostolic delegate to the
United States.

Leo XIII waß oelebrated in fitting man
ner at the cathedral yesteiday morning

LOS ANGELES HERALD; MONDAY MORNING. FEBRUARY 20, 1893.
STIMULUS FOR THE SPIRITUAL.
Rev. Isaac Naylor Starts His
Revival Services.
Dr. Thomson of Unity Church
Preaches on the Sinless Christ.
The Yorkshire Revlvallat Scores a
Success—Dr. Thomson's Strong
Discourse — At Trin
ity Church.
Isaac Naylor haa repeated the "veni,
vidi, vici," of the greatest of all the
Roman emperora. Beginning at the
usual Sunday morning hour with a fairly
good house, he held forth to a big crowd
at the afternoon hour and by the time
that evening service hour had arrived
the motto was "Breathing Room, Only."
Personally speaking, there is little
about him that is preposeessing, while
in repose. He has a lovely figure, though
not a fat man, with a heavy, stolid face,
brown hair, auburn beard and a low
forehead. His face would indicate that
he had not neglected the roast beef of
Yattendon or the pork pies of Melton
Mowbray; and to meet him on the
streets of Melbourne of a Sunday morn
ing with the chimes of St. Dunstans
ringing in your ears, you would merely
take him for a thrifty young mechanic
who preferred going to church rather
tban squander his time and money in a
Collins street "pub."
But the moment he comes forward to
pray, the man iB transfigured. His
heavy features light up as though he
were a warrior going into battle and, as
he kneels before you on the bare plat
form, you realize that there is eloquence
apart from etateamanehip. Then his
voice, deep enough for a Santley and
clear enough for Sims Reeves, wins you
over to him before he has uttered ten
words. With not a syllable shot from
the mouth nor the slightest approach to
the bellowing resorted to by so many of
his sex, his vigorous baritone pervaded
every nook and corner ln as fervent and
eloquent a supplication to the throne of
Grace as ever came from the lips of
Whitfield himself. One of his apos
tropbies to the Savior waa something
like this:
"White-robed Prince of Bethlehem,
Thorn-crowned King of Golgotha, Im
mortal Victor of Cavalry, let Thy merci
ful teachings to mankind be held holy
in their hearts from generation to gener
ation, as long as tbe moon shines down
upon the waves Thy feet have trod at
Galilee, and as long as Thy unerring
truth stands forth as the fitting witness
of God's love for the world!"
There la no falter in hia utterances,
no tripping in hia delivery. He flnda
the worde of exhortation by the same
inspiration that gave the words of "La
Marseillaise" to Rouget de L'tßle.
Over the vast hall hia rich voice rolled
away, as welcome as the ripple of the
waves on the eauds at Bunset. He is a
very manly man, and resorts to no clap
traps to gather in your sympathies.
And this was particularly noticeable
when he invoked the Divine blessing
upon all the churches in this city—Cath
olic and Protestant alike—and said,
"Bless every hoUBe whose doors are
opened in Thy name 1"
But a still greater surprise awaited
hia auditors, and that waa the singing
of the hymn, "Gather Them in from
the Highways," as a solo, followed by
the whole congregation as a chorus.
There has never been any such voice in
a Los Angeles choir, the nearest ap
proach to it being that of John Murray
of tbe Carleton opera troupe. It ia of
the rare type known as a basso con
stants, being neither a baritone nor a
baeß, but ranking between the two. It
ia common to hear good tenore articu
late the words of a song aa he doea. but
moat Bingers with aa big a voice as Mr.
Naylor'a mouth their words badly. It
was a real musical treat to hear a man
sing with the earnestness in wbich he
phrases a hymn.
He preached just a trifle too long, but
it waß all good material, hie text being
from St. Mark, llth chapter, 24th verae,
and reading: "Therefore I say unto
yon, what things soever ye desire, when
ye pray, believe that ye receive them
and ye shall have them."
The speaker then went on to say that
however we asserted our own personal
independence in life, we are for all that
the slaves of our deßirea. Sometimes
those desires corrupt our better naturea
and debaae our manhood. But there are
deairee that are human and still enno
bling. After citing several exampleß, he
came to the case of the Savior restoring
eight to the blind man by the highway,
and he drew a word-picture worthy of
the gallant Baker who fell at Ball's
bluff. It wsb not a mere aggregation of
silvery sentences and gracefully ren
dered periods. It was rather the con
sonance of thought and action that
made Quintflian give as his belief that
"it is delivery that bears Bway in ora
tory." Forcible in everything and the*
atrical in nothing, he gave forth such
an elocutionary effort as recalled Charles
Kean'a recitation of Ay toun's''Execution
of Montrose."
He should limit hia sermons to 40
minutes, and if he can compress bis ut
terances into half an hour, so much the
better. He has a very clearly denned
Yorkshire brogue, but he is not a John
Browdie by any means. He uses excel
lent English on all occasions, which waa
Bomething of a treat in itself. The re
porter came away at the close of the
sormon, and felt like going back again
iv tbe evening. It is refreshing to meet
a man who is free from pedantry and
the earnestness of whose nature is so
plainly impressed upon the most care
less listener. Mr. Naylor will leave
many warm and sincere friends behind
him when he leavea Los Angeles.
At Trinity Church.
Rev. Selah W. Brown, D.D., preached
yesterday morning at Trinity Methodist
church to a large and appreciative audi
ence. The sermon was fully up to the
high standard of this able and popular
divine.
The text was taken from the 01st
pealm: He Shall Give His Angels
Charge Over Thee.
The preacher began by saying that, bo
far as we know, there are but two intel
ligent classes of beings—angelß and
men. Of these, the first named were
first created, for there waa an angelic
chorus of praises when the foundations
of the world were laid; and there was
an evil angel present to seduce and
destroy shortly after man was made in
Eden.
Then the angels are mightier, wiser
and better than men. In proof of these
propositions many proof teste were
cited, and strong and telling argu
ments were made.
The speaker anticipated many ques
tions that might suggest themselves as
I to when the angels were created, where
they were placed, why aome of them fell
from their first estate, and so on,
answering such as could be answered,
and assuring his hearers that tbey
might find answers to all thereat within
the space ot 100 yeara. He boldly main
tained that the fallen angels never
were in heaven, and insisted that all
our notions to that effect were bor
rowed irom John Milton.
The argument then turned upon the
employment of the angels as messen
gers and ministers from Qod to men, in
which argument many texts were
cited, and many tender and power
ful appeals were made. The spirit was
brought wondrous nigh, and man found
himself in closest toue,h with bis elder
brethren of the angelic order. It was
spiritualism, but of a wholesome kind.
For the bettei part of an hour the
preacher-oratoi tv d his hearers in rapt
attention.
Dr. Stradley, the , istor, announced
that next Sunday worn \ be a great day
for the church, and that Bishop Hay
good would preach at the morning hour.
The Sinless Christ.
Dr. Thomson preached yesterday
morning to an audience that crowded
the large building to the doors, taking
hie text from Hebrews iv., 14-16, and
laying special stress upon the 15th verse:
"For we have not an high priest which
cannot be touched with the feeling of
our infirmities; but was in all points
tempted aa we are, yet without sin."
The Sinlesß Christ was announced by
Dr. Thomson as the topic of his dis
course, and he began by saying tbat a
mistake ia not a sin, neither can unbe
lief be recognized by thinking people as
a sin any more than belief can be reck
oned as a virtue. We have to believe aa
we see and understand, and the speaker
had no sympathy with people who
called others bad namea becauae they
differed in belief. We are responsible
for the way in which we examine truth.
In the world unseen the realm of evil
may be enlarged. The savage .does not
know the sins we know, and we don't
know the sins the angels may be
aware of.
What is sin? The man who does what
he knowa ia wrong is a Binner. That ia the
pith of the answer iv Birnple language.
Sin is committed in three forma: Firat,
against the Deity; second, againßtotner
people, and third, against ourselves.
Tbe latter form contains the eecret of
the world's progress. When we learn
not only to do our duty to God and to
others, but also to ourselves, such re
forms and improvements will ensue as
were never dreamed of. The man who
does not educate his facultiea is sinning
against God. We must protect our
selves. The fact ia we submit to wrong,
we don't protest against evil doing and
that'a why we have boodlers in politics,
hypocrites in tbe pulpit and tims-servers
in our Bchoola.
Christ's temptation was real; hie pas
sion, pride and ambition were all ap
pealed to. There mußt have been some
thing in him that responded to the
temptation ; if he waa omnipotent, then
hia temptation waa a sham. He waa
here aa a man, with a man'a powers,
and divested of supernatural helps, he
met the tempter and slew him. This is
our encouragement. Some people speak
of sin as if it were a necessity of human
life, and, indeed, they have many facts
to back them up; but no power, can
make me transgress the laws of my con
acience. Did you ever commit a sin
that you were forced to commit? No.
People used to Bay, though it ia not said
so much now, "Satan made me do it,"
but the more mod«rn excuse is the law
of heredity, by which we blame our
wrongdoing on our ancestors. These
evil tendencies may make life hard and
oppressive Bometimes, but they alford
no excuse whatever for wrongdoing.
Cbriat aa a representative of con-.
science proved that man can live with
out sin. Why do ethical societies shut
out the man who was the true head, who
was the doer as well as the teacher?
Conacience haa a right to be angry.
Christ called Hia opponents vipers and
other unpleasant names with bitter,
blaating emphasis. If one of His min
isters were to epeak so plainly in this
day he would be forced to change his
quarters. In the Old Testament human
nature is represented as a corrupt thing
but Jeeue never said so, and if the fall
of Adam was an important thing He
would have mentioned it.
Referring rapidly to the Hindoo
dreams of metempsychosis, the Chal
dean watch towers, the pyramids built
by the Egyptian dreamers and the
Eleußinian mysteries, the speaker said
that he waß thoroughly acquainted with
the fight against the miracles and the
resurrection made by the Dutch and
German schoole and by their imitators
in France, England and America. In
epite of all the argument to the contrary
the reverend doctor believed that man
could got the strength of heaven into
his life to do these, tilings, and if they
are not true, then Christianity iB the
moat gigantic falsehood ever palmed
upon the earth.
On the one side we have a following
of teacbera, narrow, bigoted, heartless,
arrogant and dogmatic, and on the
other the select number who havo
coined the phrase of The Higher Criti
ciem, an expression that in itself is full
of arrogant conceit. These people are
as full of asaumptionas the others. Lord
pity their shallowness 1
We have the perfect religion and the
perfoct character to go with that reli
gion. What more do we need ?
"My strength !s ai the strength of ten,
Because my life is pure."
The speaker closed with an eloquent
peroration.
The subject for next Sunday morning
is The Mantle of Elijah.

A COUNTRY OF CURIOS.
THB NATURAL WONUIKS OF THE
SUI'HKSTITIOUS MOUNTAINS.
A Begion Which the Indian* Avoid
Through Fear of the Peculiar Sy
enite Figures Which Are
Found There*
"Among the natural wonders of the
great southwest are tbe Superstitious
mountains, which loom up red and rose
ate from the arid desert to the east of
the Salt river valley," said Ben Rogers,
an old cattle-man of Tempe, last night
at the American Exchange, Bays the
San Francisco Examiner.
"These mountains are so carious that
as long as Arizona has been settled the
Indianß would have nothing to do with
them. In consequence they are full of
deer, ibex, bear and other wild game.
It is tough work getting up in them,
however, and because of this it is a nat
ural fortress for wild game. They are as
Bafe in these mountains as were the cliff
dwellers of an age long past.
"Their dwellings may be seen far up
on the Bides of the almost perpendicular
waits to this day. How they got up and
down is a mystery. Enough iB known
of them, however, to show that they
were little men and women, and could
probably scale the surfaces of the rocks
like squirrels. They were pygmies,
there is no doubt about that.
"Rising out of the level surface of the
desert, like the pyramids of Egypt, are
the Superstitious mountains. They
reach a total height from the valley of
from 3000 to 3500 feet, and probably
their height above the sea is from 4000
to 0900 feet. There are no foothills lead
ing up to them whatever. On one side
iB a valley as level as a billiard table,
and on the other these lofty mountaina
rise. There are many theories for thia,
but no certain solution.
"On the crest of this unique range,
and in full view in|the rarefied atmos
phere for an immense distance from the
plain, are hundreds of queer figures,
representing men in all attitudes. When
you look first you are cure they are
men, and when you turn your aston
ished gaze again to them you are as ab
solutely certain of it as you can be of
anything.
"Ihey reprosent ball-throwers, out
looks, mere-viewers of thecountry round
about, men recumbent and contemplat
ive, others starting on a foot race aud in
every conceivable posture and position.
They are not real flesh and blood men,
however —nothing but stone syenite—
yet nothing can convince the Indians,
and some white men that they are not
genuine. Ihey say they are real mortals
turned to stone, petrified by the pecul
iar condition of the air on the mountains.
"Ibis belief has grown out of an
Apache legend, handed down for I don't
know how many years. They have it
that an ancient chief, who had learned
of the carious character of the Super
stitious mountains, forbade any of his
people to go there. A large band, how
ever, one day discovered a way to get in
by a precipitous route, and finally
reached the top. It resulted as the chief
had said, and they never got down alive.
"Now you can induce an Indian to
brave all the Gila monsters and rattle
snakes of the plain, and there are many
ot them in placeß, but you can't induce
him to try and scale that perpendicular
range. He is satisfied to let the ancient
abodes of the mysterious pygmies, and
the crests where the petrified men are,
alone, even though the mountains about
are full of ibex and other game.
"It is a fine field for the naturalist and
the antiquarian, for if they do not be
lieve in the petrified men, they will at"
least learn much of tbe pygmy cliff
d wellers, and tbe game that roams un
molested near at hand. i
"Talking of the syenite men and the
other strange features in connection with
them I mux-, not forget to mention the
carious alkali pots or geysers. I'heso
are near Stein's pass, the birthplace of
the Apaches, and it ia a fitting place for
them, too. Whenever I have looked at
this grim and ghastly region I have not
wondered that the Apaches are savage.
"In the distance the country ia aa
white (but for some opal-like spots) as
though melted lard had been poured
over it. It is aa white aa snow and hard
aa plaster. It ie almost aa Blippery, too,
aa glaes. There are no flour-like
aplotchea anywhere, and the wind does
not carry the curious whiteneaa into the
air. All tbat ia to be seen is alkali and
its effect. The reaervoir-like placee in
the dazzling white are actual reservoira
of alkali water. Some of them are but
aa large aa a bucket in diameter, while
othera are 30 or 40 feet across.
"I have strung 100 feet of riataa to
gether and dropped it in and found no
bottom. Neither cattle nor horeea nor
any living thing, ao far as I know, will
ever touch thiß water. They dare not,
for a mouthful of it would kill. About
the alkali pota and large reservoirs and
scattered over the lava rocks, hot in the
blazing sun, are the different forms of
the cactus, and among all at times may
be seen mottled reptilea. crawling lazily
in the heat. Nobody will forget it and
no one will wonder at the peculiar
character of the Apaches when this wild
and uncanny spot is seen."

Thos. H. Griffin, the well-known trot

the east, the name of his new employer
being temporarily a secret. He has
never had a fair chance here, all his
horses being either old cripples or else
so fat that the season was over before he
got them worked down to a race. He
now goes to a place where he has about
20 horses, all of mature ages; and from
what he has done in thiß state during
former seasons, the horse reporter of the

different showing from what he did

the race been properly judged. They

two other heats in the race without the
slightest room for a quibble. A kodak

SENATOR-ELECT WHITE.
His Departure for Washington Delayed
for a Time.
United States Senator-elect Stephen
M. White had intended to leave for
Waßhington today at sp. m. over the
Santa Fe. He has, however, been forced
to change his plans aud postpone the
date of hia departure for several days at
least, owing to the illness of his young
est child and the immense pressure of
business upon him.
When the senator doeß leave he will
not return again until about the Bth of
April. The Benate will be convened in
extra session on March 4th to confirm
the nominations for the cabinet and
snch other ollices as the president
desires to fill immediately. The
senate remains in session then as long
as the president desires.
An endeavor was made last evening to
secure an expression from Senator
White as to what he thought of the se
lection of Judge Walter Q. Gresham by
Mr. Cleveland as his secretary of state.
The senator very promptly refused to
give any opinion, upon tbe ground tbat
he would be called upon to pass upon
this selection in an executive session of
the senate. This being the case, it
would be ill-advised for him to at this
day talk about tbe matter for the news
papers. He absolutely refused to talk
about it.
