The San Francisco earthquake anri
fires of yesterday were the subject oi
more or less comment at the district
revival meetings held last evening. In
his sermon at the Broadway Presby
terian church, in the central district,
Kev. Tilman Hobson spoke of the dis
aster as the punishment of God for
the neglect of the people of that city
to take cognizance of the condition oi
their souls. He recalled that last fall
an attempt was made to have an evan
gelistic campaign conducted in San
Francisco by himself and others asso
ciated with him in the general evan
gelistic work, and the people of San
Francisco refused to consider the mat

experience of the Galveston flood,
stating that in Galveston, previous to
.he disaster, the people refused to con
sider the evangelistic- work, but after
:.he flooding of the city and the cyclone
lisaster, the evangelists who went to
Galveston were eagerly heard, and
he:r campaign proved a great success.
He pointed out that a great religious
awakening is sure to follow such ter
rible occurrences as that of yesterday
t San Francisco.
Srrmoi on "Faltli."
Dr. Hobson's subject for the evening
was "Faith.," the sermon following an
extended song service conducted by
Alexander Davidson, and a children's
service, during which Dr. Hobson gav
l very Impressive "hand talk" for the
children. In speaking of faith, the
evangelist defined it as "the medium
for procuring salvation," and likened
it to money, the medium for procuring
grat.fication of worldly desires. He em
phasized the necessity of a personal
faith, showing the fallacy of expecting
the faith of the pastor of a church, or
of some other member of the church,
to bring about salvation for any but
that particular individual.
The Brazen Serpent.
Rev. D. S. Toy, at the Memorial
Christian church, preached a powerful
sermon on the subject, "The Brazen
Serpent Uplifted in the Wilderness."
"It has become necessary for the
church to resort to fairs, festivals,
grab bags, and the devil knows whai
else, to rujv.the cjhturcb, and It is a dis
grace to te people who profess them
selves Christians that this Is so," said
Dr. Toy in ihe course of -big-add Fess. He
added later, along the same line, "We
have too many that are better Baptists
than they are Christians, better Metho
dists than they are christians, and bet
ter Presbyterians than christians."
Dr. Toy likened the serpent raised
by Moses as a cure for the sting of
the fiery serpent of the wilderness to
Christ. "As there was no physician
then who could cure the bite of the ser
pent, there is no way now to cure the
Satan sting except that pointed by God.
At Speneer Memorial.
The meeting at the Spencer Memo
rial church was well attended, and
Rev. Charjcs T. Wheeler gave another
of his eloquent and powerful sermons.
Mr. Wheeler spoke on the subject,
"Baptism of the Holy Ghost." In his
usual powerful manner he brought out
the thoughts he wished to convey to
his hearers, and succeeded in making
a most deeply felt impression on all
who heard him.
He took the text. "Ye shall receive
power after that the Holy Ghost has
upon ye and be witnesses." He went
on to show how all Christians might
receive power from God if they would
but have faith in Him and get the
spirit of the Holy Ghost in their lives.
In an apt illustration he showed how
useless was all the many kinds of pow
erful machinery that have been invent
ed in late years if it were not for the
power that drives them, and how it
would-be impossible to generate this
power without the fire which creates
steam to run the enormous and pow
erful machines. He then compared
lives with these machines and showed
how uselessly people live without the
Holy Ghost which would supply the
MeetlnK for Children.
A special meeting for children will
be conducted tomorrow afternoon at
Broadway Presbyterian church, at 4
o'clock. Dr. Hobson, who seems par
ticularly fitted for this line of work,
will give a chalk talk for the children,
and .Alexander Davidson will lead the

through for them to the stricken city
to bring back some word from dear
ones' in peril there. Manager Lewis
explained the impossibility of doing so,
but they insisted. Men who have large
dealings with the company tried to
use ' their Innuence, implored and
threatened, but Lewis shook his head.
Maddened men fought their way to
ward him with handfuls of money, of
fering it all just for the sending of
one word and one in reply, just that
they might know that some one person
was still alive. Lewis compressed his
twitching lips and waved the money
away. Women cried and sobbed, im
ploring him to send one word for. them.
It was no use, the impossible could
not be done.
