BISHOP ANDREWS ON FAITH.
The Services Yesterday at the
First Methodist Church.
Testimony Given at a Preliminary
Feast of Tabernacles.
A* Interesting Her-Ice—The Bishop' ■
Impressive Slironne- Three Eld
Tbe lovefeast oi tbe Methodist church
was held at the Flrat Methodist church
This annual gathering ol testimonies,
a tort of feast of tabernacles, was
opened at 9a. m. by Hey. P. F. Bresee,
D. D., and proved a time of refreshing
to many lives. Most of the testimonies
were brief, but very clear and unequi
vocal. These conference love feasts are
seasons looked forward to |by the
ministers as seasons of especial bless
ing, because often of the opportunity of
bearing aa well as speaking. One
will give in. Rev. D. D. Maclay,
standing before the vast audience, said:
"At the closing point of life I want to
bear testimony to tbe goodness and
mercy of that Qod who has kept and
sustained me through a life of vicissi
tudes. Ha has kept and sustained me
in youth, in middle life and in old age,
by land and by sea, in sickness, in
health, in prosperity and adversity,
happy today in infinite love."
When we remember that 37
years of this aged saint's life have been
spent in China, Japan and Corea, as a
pioneer in these foreign mission fields,
we can understand somewhat of the
worth of this simple, child-like testi
mony to saving grace. During this
service there wonld sometimes be as
many aa 10 or 12 standing on the floor at
one time, awaiting an opportunity to
Dr. J. A. Wood said: "What one man
knows is better than what a thousand
men don't know."
Sometimes two persons would speak
at the same time, yet each was the
calmness which pervaded the vast as
sembly that no confusion was created by
Adam Bland*, the pioneer of thia con
ference, who preached the first protest
ant sermon ever delivered in thia city,
said: "I have a love that is sweeter
than life and eVonger than death."
The service was closed by singing a
verse of All Hail the Power of Jesus'
BISHOP ANDREWS' SERMON.
Dr. Campbell's announcement tbat
there would be an overflow meeting at
Simpson tabernacle did not seem to di
minish the crowd any at First church.
Long before the honr for service every
available seat was taken and the aisles
were many of them filled by tboee
Standing. As a prelude, hymn No. 219,
Gospel Hymns, was snng by the congre
gation, led by the choir. Then followed
the singing of No. 16T in the same selec
Bishop Andrews annonncsd the eighth
hymn of tbe Methodist Selection. Rev.
A. C. Williams, D. £>~ led in prayer.
Bishop Andrews then read selections
from tbe eleventh chapter of Hebrews.
After the usual announcements the
choir led the congregation in the 679 th
hymn. The text was from the Gospel
of St. Mark, xi :22—And Jesus answer
ing, saitb unto them: Have faith in
From tbla text Bishop Andrews began
by saying: "The context will aid
in the interpretation of the text, Have
fa thin God. By faith in God He did
mean trust in the goodneßS and mercy
of God. There are those who profess to
have such faith in God's goodness, that
they believe that there is some honor
He will give them even in sin. There
is no such a God. We only know of
God through the book of nature and
tbe book what it teaches, and what we
learn from the Book of Revelation. The
book of nature is illustrated by tbe
vineyards around the base of Vesuvius,
bnt we mnst not forget the buried cities
of Pompeii, and others. The Book of
Revelation also tells of the love of God,
as giving bis only begotten son to save
the world; bnt it also tells us, 'Our God
Is a consuming fire.'
"I believe in dogmas. I want to say
that all dogmatic opinions are not faltb.
Tbe New Testament present* faith as a
right conception of God and His attri
butes, but it does not say so much of
"Go back and look upon that fig tree
with those astonished disciples. Ia it
possible tbat these descendants of Israel
are surprised ?
Faith is tbat whlcb enthrones God in
the heart. It' is that act of the human
sonl by which God's presence in the
heart is a living entity.
I've often recalled one of Luther's
translations of tbat part of the 11th of
Hebrews referring to Moses: "He held
on to Him who he saw not as though be
saw Him." He saw the sufferings of
His people and tbeirEcyptian surround
ings. • At length he saw into the depths
of another realm. I know not when or
how there came an hour when he took
God, with all that meant. He thought
biaiself called to leadership, but soou
found tbat be was not. He went into
the desert for 40 years ; he tended sheep
on the mountains and learned tbe desert
lore that should stand him insomuch
need later. Then be went back and led
bis people forth. '
Faith in God means again faith in
Christ. How is this? In Him we see
God manifest in the flesh. We no
longer go to tbe Bolar system to find out
God. We knowjcorr of that great heart
of purity and love. Again, the action
of faith depends upon tbe co-ordination
of moral faculties. I suppose tbat many
a schoolboy today who knows the
theories of faith in God better than
Abraham, but Abraham is tbe father of
Tbe faith is the taking hold of God
and enthroning Him over all the moral
Truth, again, is a thing of degrees. A
man may have some fear of God's power,
and yet not have saving faith. A man
man who is not a believer except in a
general sense tnrns to God, opens tbe
oor of his heart and receives Him in
wardly, then knows Him in love. At
length be may become bathed in God.
The Lord help us!
This faith is obviously the etock prin
ciple of virtue. We can never realize
all of God, bnt there comes a time, if
faithful, when he cart realize "what a
wondeiful God." Then God's holiness
dawna upon tbe eoul, and humility con
strains the soul to cry : "God be merci
ful to me a sinner." Then the great
love of Christ is revealed to the soul, and
be is overwhelm*-' by that love.
He sees it manliest in God's purposes,
lifting up in every land all who will come
unto Him by Christ Jesus. Then faith
becomes hope, and essays to look
through the gate, not ajar, but wide
O, my brethren, faith will make us
Godlike, happy, useful. Take honors,
jewels, wealth ; take them all. Give me
faith in God.
Obstacles of uncertainty. Don't you
believe without you have reason to. I
ask no man to believe unless be has
foundations in reason. If these doubts
come, never take your inability to un
derstand God as evidence tbat there is

you could comprehend Him, there
would be no God.
We cannot comprehend Him, but we
can apprehend Him.
Suppose yon turn from your New Tes-s

tbat you will naturally, longingly, turn
toward a higher being than yourself, es
pecially if you are trying to be thor
oughly good according to your own
standard. You will then, naturally,
turn to yonr New Testament and there
you find just what you want. If any
man will try to bs what he ought to be,
he will find the whole doctrine of God.
The second obstacle to faith In God
is an unwillingness to believe in God.
Faith is revolutionary. Faith revolu
tionizes his business even though it
makes him a poor man. Faith revolu
tionizes him so be will tell the truth if
the heavens fall.
How should man think he can accom

Third, I speak of adverse habits as an
obstacle to faith in God.
Our faith is intermittent —one hour
light, the next in darkness, John the
Baptist, saying, "Behold the Lamb of
God," and saying, "Art Thou He that
should come, or look we for another?"
We read these promises, and go to our
closets for a little while. We did'nt
expect anything, and didn't get any
thing. A man must study God, if he is
going to believe in God. Scent thou
has his works wrought with faith—thus
was faith made perfect. God knew bet
ter than to make seven Sabbaths —one
Sabbath, with six days of hard, earnest
work. Pray, read your Bible, the mount

The following were called to the altar
to receive ordination aa elders in the
Methodist Episcopal church, namely:
Kdgar S. Robertson, Alfred Ramey and
Charles Westenberger. After the dox

EPWORTH LEAGUE MASS-MEETING.
At 3 p. m. the Kpworth league people
assombled in their conference annual
gathering, and spent some time in aing

Gospel hymns. Bey. Dr. Campbell pre
sided and J. M. Morris offered prayer.
Dr. Campbell vead the Scripture lesson,
spicing it with brief comments as he
progress with the lesson.
At the close of Dr. Csmpbell'B sesson,
he introduced Mr. Williams of the Cen
tral M. E. church, who, an a layman,
addressed tbe people upon the import
ance of the league and its work. He
certainly struck tbe keynote. Rev. J.

emphasizing t»e, importance of working

Heaven of Rest as a solo, with very fine
effect upon tbe spirit of the service.
The Bervice was then closed with an
altar service, a character of service very
familiar to Epworth leaguers.
This session was the anniversary of
the conference missionary society. Tbe
first half hour, from 7to 7:30 p. m., was
devoted to a praise Eervice, conducted
by the orchestra and cboir of the First
church, concluding with a solo by Mrs.
J. H. Book. Rev. Dr. Campbell pre
sided and Rev. Dr. W. A. Wright offerea
prayer, after which the cboir and con
gregation joined in pinging hymn No.

Dr. A. A. Hardy was then introduced
and delivered a missionary sermon,
starting with the proposition tbat St.
Paul was the first Christian missionary.
He tbsn paid a brief tribute to the mem
ory of the patron saint of Ireland, then
to tbe lonian missionaries of the fifth
century, who really planted Christianity
in Great Britain. Pursuing the tints
line, be reviewed briefly the missionary
work during the middle ages. The
Piedmontese especially received notice
concerning their consecrated efforts to
spread the truth of tbe gospel. Said n*:
"I have stood on a Japanese highway
and seen the people passing to the
shrine of some-idol, and I have seen
copies of the Now Testament costing
about a cent a copy." The Lutheran
reformation was greatly helped by the

these miduival missionaries. All the

congregation. He stated that be had
spent nine years in missionary work in
China. Three hundred years ago Fran

Tbe Philosophy of Money waa the
subject of the morning's discussion
yesterday, in which more than usual
interest was manifested. Mr. Waldron
LOS ANGELES HERALD* MONDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 25, 1893.
opened with a 20 minutes' address, and
was followed by short speeches from
some of tbe brightest and brainiest
men and women in the city.
Rev. W. C. Bowman spoke in tbe
evening to a large and enthusiastic
audience, his subject being Our Social
Relations and duties. After reading a
beautiful poem by J. G. Clark, Be said:
"All duties grow out of our mutual re
lations to each other. No one can live
entirely to himself and for himself.
We are not only dependent on each
other, but mstst of necessity aid and
help each other. Kvery calling, every
trade, every vocation in life is de
signed for the benefit of others. While
we have been taught to believe tbat
every one is working for himself, yet the
result of his labors is for the blessing
of others. How blessed would it be for
all to realize thia truth, tbat the world
is a brotherhood and all are working for
the good of the whole, instead of the
selfish end of good to no one but self.
"The world recognizes tbe fact tbat our
lives are bound up in mutual depend
ence upon each other, and yet the aver
age citizen trembles at tbe very name of
socialism. This is the result of our
former education. The world socialism
brings terror to many minds because it
means reform and an end to plutocracy,
monopoly and legalized robbery. No
wonder it Is unpopular with those who
reap a golden harvest from the irregu
larities in condition, and sanctified by
law. Socialism means a change in this
respect—something like that outlined
by Bellamy, which I hope you have all
"There is another aspect to socialism
which refers to our position In society.
While these things are small, much of
the happinesses of life depend upon
them. We can hardly calculate the in
fluence of friendliness in our social in
tercourse. To be kindly and sociable
wrth all is a duty. The happiness of a
whole neighborhood depends upon the
duties of kindliness and courtesy. In
order to keep up thia spirit of kindli
ness we must exclude those who cannot
assimilate with ne in the spirit of our
land and social customs. This excludes
aliens like Chinese, who can never be
come Americanized. There can never
be a brotherhood without brotherly
kindness. The Chinese are not agree
able neighbors, either socially, morally
or financially; hence we owe it as a
duty to ourselves to rid our country of
their presence and influence. In this
we differ from the present czar of Amer
ica. We agree, however, with Senator
Stewart of Nevada in desiring bis im

The gospel meeting was well attended
yesterday at 3:15. It was opened by a
service of song, led by Mies Duncan as
pianist, and an orchestra composed of
the following young ladies: Mies Madge
Rogers, Miss Dora James and tbe Misaee
Simons. Tbe music so cheerfully ren
dered by the young artists adds greatly
to the attractiveness of the meeting.
The principal address waß made by
Mrs. Bassell of tbe Memorial Baptist
chnrrh. The subject was Faith, and
Mrs. Bassell referred to the last verse of
the thirteenth chapter of First Corin
thians, "And now abideth faith, hone,
charity." She said "let us get back
to a good old-fashioned faitb, and if we
will let tha Great Father teach as this
faith, we will spend this hour profit
ably." She said "we must first have an

• Yesterday afternoon a number of
Catholic gentlemen met at the Sacred
Heart Church hall, East Los Angeles,
to make arrangements for a fair to bs
held this week, the proceeds of which
will be' devoted to the completion of
tbe Bacred Heart church. The build

ago and the basement erected, in which
services have been held for some time
past. Men have been at work on tbe
building since July of last year. A
beautiful Gothic altar was donated by
Mr. J. F. Broasart o! East Los Angeles,
of which B. J. Reeve was architect
and Mr. Anderson the builder. The
altar is cream and gold and presents a
truly beautiful appearance. The sanc
tuary is almost finished. It waa visited,
for the first time, yesterday morning by
members of the congregation, and pro
nounced as handsome as any in
the city. At yesterday's meeting
Mr. P. Leiz waa elected chairman and
Mr. J. Caulfield temporary secretary. It
was resolved that the gentlemen of the

WHEELMEN WHO WORK TO WIN.
Training Hard for the Coming
Debut of the Southern California
Division of the League.
How tha Organization Was Perfected
A Display That Ought to Be Well
On next Saturday there will be inau
gurated at Athletic park a series of bicy
cle races lasting for three days.
While all of the crack riders of this
section and some from the north will be
in attendance, and tbe races will be done
in fast time, the most important feature
of the whole affair is that it is the debut
of the Southern California division of
the League of American Wheelmen be
fore not only a Los Angeles audience but
before the entire cycling organizatien of
Previous to this year thore was but
one division of the league for the entire
state. As a result all of the meets were
held in the north, end only a few of the
riders in the southern part of the state
could compete, as the expenses ef such
a trip were considerable. The northern
riders thus had everything their own
way, except in certain instances when a
crack racer from tho orange belt would
drift to San Francisco in time to com
The pleasure of seeing these meets
was, however, denied to the wheeling
admirers in this section.
A number of tbe riders of this city got
together this year and decided to pre
sent a petition to the national conven
tion of the league asking that a south
ern division be created.
John S. Thayer was sent east to
Philadelphia to present the claims of
Southern California for a formation of a
new division. His efforts were success
ful and the division created.
The present three days of racing is
the first annual meet of tbe division. It
is distinctively and entirely an affair of
the Southern California wheelmen and
only through their earnest and success

domination of tbe north ia the meet pos
It is worthy of the support of all this
section even thought nothing but a very
ordinary attraction was offered. Tbe
wheelmen, however, are desirous of
keeping up their success in the new
creation, and have prepared to show to
the public that they are in every way
worthy of entire and earnest support. It
is a Southern California affair origin
ated and completed by Sontbern Cali

support of tbe Southern California
In fact, the meet can well be called
Southern California Day in tbe wheeling
Tbe opening of tbe meet will be on
Saturday of this week. On Sunday the
wbeelmen will take a trip over the Mt.
Lowe railroad. Tbe racing will be re
turned on Monday, which will conclude
the track events for the meet.
On Tuesday a novel and exciting event
will he held at Agricultural park. It ia
tbe 25-mile team race for the challenge
trophy cup, presented by the East Side
Cycling club to the Southern California
division o! the L. A. W. There
are three teams entered thus far
—the Los Angeles wheelmen, the River
side wheelmen and the East Side club,
tbe donors of the cup. Each team con
sists of six riders, who are scored at the
end of each mllo, the team having the
highest score at tbe end of tbe race re
ceiving the cup.
This is about the first event of tbe
kind ever held on the coast, and will at
tract more than passing interest: The
racs is held at tbe Agricultural park in
order to accommodato such a large num
ber of riders on the race track, which f.s
not afforded by tbe quarter-mile track at
Tbe wheelmen have been training
very hard for the coming races. Ath
letic park is tbe scene of much speeding
nearly every day.
Jenkins has not been in the best of
health the last week, but will be in good
condition by next Saturday. Pox. Cas
tleman and Shoemaker of Riverside are
in the city preparatory to entering the
races. Fox is in first-class condition,
and if present expectations are realized
he will do some speedy work before an
other ten days. He <s expected to rido
in 2.15 or less. The other day he rode a
practice mile in 2:18, with Castleman aa
Dave Burke, the erstwhile Pacific
coast champion, has entered several of
tbe events, and expects to make it
"mighty interestin'" for the swifts
Fox and Jsnkins. He will arrive from
tbe East within a few days.
Among tbe other local riders doing
unusually good track riding at present
are Gateuabury, Houston, W. A. Burke,
McLaughlin and Kitchen.
As to the condition of the team riders
as a whole, it is bard to speculate with
the slightest bope of being correct. The
members of tho Riverside team have
probably done more and harder riding
lately than either of the other teams,
but there is such a thing as over-train
ing. The local teams—the East Side
amd the Los Angeles—are in line condi
tion, which will make the race one of
tho moat interesting races ever seen in

As tbere has been some conjecture as

LAMPS OR NO LAMPS.
THE BICYCLE ORDINANCE TO BE
CONSIDERED B¥ THE COUNCIL.
Tbe View of the Proposed —aw From
the Wheelmen's Standpoint—The
Modifications That Are Asked,
—amps Are Expensive.
Some important matters will come up
at the session of the council today,
not the least among which is the newly
adopted bicycle ordinance, which failed
to secure tho mayor's approval.
After the ordinance waa vetoed by the
mayor, the council reconsidered it and
referred it to the board of public works.
At tbe meeting of this committee Fri
day, the otdinance waa again referred to
the committee of tbe whole.
The bicyclists are very willing to
make some concessions in the matter
and do not seem to object on 9 o'clock
p. m. aa the hour at which lampa must
be placed on their wheels. Tbey have a
petition on file with the council to this
effect, but it is said that if the wheel
men could get the council to compro
mise on 7 o'clock there would be "no
The bicycle cranks think 6 o'clock too
early to use lamps and that it would
greatly inconvenience many who work
at a distance and ride wheels.
There has been some talk tbat the
ordinance was "railroaded" through
the council by some dealers who wished
to make a bonanza by selling bicycle
lamps. So far as known there ia not
the slightest foundation for aucb talk.
Some of the bicycle dealers themselves
are strongly opposed to the ordinance as
Aa was related in the Herald some
time ago, bicyclists claim such an ordi
nance—especially that part of it requir
ing the use of lamps—will take many
thousands of dollars from tbe city and
from those who cannot afford, and who
do not ride the wheel for pleasure.
Today will settle the question whether
lamps are to be used upon the thou
sands of silent steeds in this city.
FULL OF THEM.
The City Infested with Desperate Char
Los Angeles at present has many late
arrivals who are very bard specimens of
humanity and who, apparently, would
not etop at anything, even murder, to
carry out their purpose.
On Saturday morning about 10 o'clock
a bold daylight robbery was attempted
upon a lady on South Broadway, near
Eighth street. The culprit must have
been desperate, for he deliberately
walked up to tbe lady in unestion, seized
her arm and attempted to take a dia
modd ring from one of her fingers. Her
screams brought several persona to the
scene, but the desperado managed to
elude his pursuers.
Last night a gentleman, while stand
ing at the cornerof Sixth and Broadway,
was approached by two tough-looking
individuals within three minutes who
demanded money, and on being refused
they used abusive language.
Several complaints of a similar nature
have been made within the past few
days, and the police would do well to
keep their eyes open fjr those gentry.
MICHAEL. DEW AH.
An Old Pensioner Who Suddenly
Dropped Out of Might
There is considerable inquiry at pres
ent sb to where Michael Dewan haj
gone. Michael is an old pensioner who
has been around tbe city for several
years. He has been living for several
months in a lodging-house at the corner
of Twelfth and. Olive streets. He had
succeeded in staving off the payment of
his current expenses by the statement
that he would receive bis pension
money in September.
The night of September 12th the uld
man disappeared very mysteriously from
the house with bis belongings and has
not been heard from Bince tb.it time.
The people who have unpaid bills
Bgainst him have been trying to get
some trace of him, but so far without
lie Was Trslng to Unlock a Door With
v Skeleton Key.
S. P. Richards was arrested early yes
terday morning by Officer Tnlamantes
and booked at the city jail for burglary.
Richards was detected in the act of
fitting a sheleton key into tbe door of a
saloon on S.tn Fernando street.
A bunch of skeleton keys was fonnd
on tbe prisoner which the police de

A Covered Patrol Wagon Demanded

A Hnnday Afternoon Kplsode Which
Was Noted—A Shrieking;, Kicking
Drunken Woman Exposed
to Everybody's Sight.
About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon
tbe Sabbath quiet was rudely disturbed
by the sound of a woman's yell, accom
panied by tbe sharp sound of the bell of
tbe police patrol wagon. A few moments
later tbe vehicle tore down the street,
followed by a crowd of two or three hun
dred excited citizens.
An officer was seated in tbe wagon
holding a woman down, who was lying
on the floor of tbe vehicle, emitting
every other minute a wild yell, accom
panying her vocal expressions of disgust
with sundry high kicks.
On the wagon reaching the jail, the
door of the building was surrounded by
a throng of sympathising men and
women, to say nothing of a dczen or so
small boys, who took advantage of the
occasion to raise as much noise as pos
For a few minutes all was pandemo

Hew to their windows and looked out,
expecting to see murder at the least, the
waiters came out of the two adjacent
restaurants and stared, the congregation
in the opposite church sent out a de
tachment to swell the crowd, and every
dog in sight barked its loudest.
And it was all caused by the arrest of
a drunken woman who was driven,
screaming, with her hair and limbs
floating in the breeds, in an open wagon,
through the principal thoroughfares of
Los Angeles on a Sunday afternoon.
It appears to be high time that a cov
ered conveyance was provided for the
transportation of prisoners and others to
the city jail.
Situated as the building is, upon one
of tbe principal streets of the city,
promenaders are continually subjected
to the unpleasant Bight of some drunken
man or woman, or some injured and
bleeding object, whose Bufferings are in
no way alleviated by the crowd which
always rushes np and subjects the pa
tient to a closeand critical examination.
In no city of any importance is the
open patrol wagon used. It would be a
matter of very little expense to provide
some sort of a cover for the present con
veyance, and such a course would cer
tainly elicit the approval of the city's
