A Young Clergyman's Firßt Bermon—Mrs.
Clara Hoffman and the Children's Tem
perance Meeting—Pastors and Printer's
Mark Twain lias poked considerable
fun at those clergymen, who, as he ex
pressed it, "make bulletin boards of
themselves" in these days of printers'
ink, and read endless lists of announce
ments of everything, from a church
social to a lecture. The celebrated
humorist would therefore be satisfied,
prdfcably, with the action of several
Los Angelesjchurches, whose pastors issue
a regular printed bulletin or programme,
which is passed to those in attendance
on the Sunday services, and not only
saves time but prevents mistakes. The
lirst pastor to use these printed an
nouncements was Dr. Cantine, who in
troduced them shortly after coming to
the First Methodist church in 18ftfi.
Several church ia now use such weekly
bulletins, notably the First Presbyterian
and the First Congregational. In tlie
former church, Dr. J. L. Russell intro
duced a new thing last night in the
shape of a printed programme for the
evening service, giving the number of
the hyMtijn, the order of exercises and
the responsive readings.
The pleasant weather yesterday
brought out a good Attendance at most
of the city churches. At the
the pastor, Dr. J. L. Rußsell, preach
ed at the morning service upon tbe
analogy between a tree and a Christian.
He took three texts, and preach
ed in his usual forcible
and interesting manner to a
large congregation. In the evening the
assistant pastor, Joseph W. Cochran,
Jr., preached from the text, Strength
and Beauty nre in Thy Sanctuary (Psalm
xcvi: (i). His sermon was a remarkable
effort for so young a man, and his in
terpretation of tiie beautiful imagery
and poetical metaphors of the Bible was
much enjoyed by an audience that filled
the church to the doors. This was the
young man's first sermon in this church
and it was highly spoken of by all. Next
Sunday evening there will be a child
ren's service in this church, under the
direction of Dr. Russell.
The congregation of this church yes
terday had the pleasure of listening to a
sermon by Rev. E. S. Williams,
of Minnesota. Their own pastor,
Rev. Dr. Hutchins, preached in the
evening. At the morning service five
new members were received by letter
and eight on confession of faith,"four of
the latter being Chinamen from the
mission school on Olivera street. The
Young People's Society of Christian En
deavor of this church was led in the
evening by Miss Mary Bosbyshell.
A children's meeting.
A meeting composed of the members
of four Loyal Temperance legions of
Los Angeles was held at the First Con
gregational church at 3 o'clock yester
day afternoon. The church was" about
three-fourths filled with an audience of
which about one hundred were adults.
The programme was as follows: Sing
ing; reciting the Lord's Prayer in con
cert; song, congregation ; address of wel
come, recited by little Bonnie Irving;
address on temperance, Mrs.
Clara C. Hoffman ; collection ;
singing and closing exercises. The four
Loyal Temperance legions represented
were Los Angeles legion, Morris Vine
yard legion, Park church Band of Hope
and the Commercial-street legion.
Rev. Daniel Read, D.D., preached both
morning and evening at the First Bap
tist church. Rev. A. J. Frost, D.D., of
San Bernardino, will deliver a lecture
at this church on Wednesday evening.
There will be no charge for admission.
Trinity Methodist church (south) will
hold revival services every night this
week, under the direction of the pastor,
Rev. VV. B. Stradley.
Immanuel Presbyterian church was
well filled last night to listen to Dr.
Chichester's second sermon on the
Lord's Prayer, the words under consid
eration being: "Thy kingdom come."
The church is steadily growing, and
thoroughly appreciates its pastor.
Rev. J. F. Collins, the popular young
pastor of the Third Congregational
church, had another full house last
evening to listen to his regular Sunday
evening lecture. These weekly lectures
are attracting more attention every
week, and do not become at all conven
tional or dull. No one ever knows what
to expect next, and are consequently
always surprised and always pleased.
Prof. Warman, the elocutionist and
lecturer, addressed a large gathering of
men at the V.M.C.A. meeting yesterday
afternoon. He was as interesting in his
rather informal talk as he is in his
lectures, and those who have heard him
would require no higher praise than
The executive committee of the
Woman's Presbyterian Bociety will have
an all-day meeting today at Bethany
Presbyterian church, commencing at

to arrange for a song service to be given
by Mr. and Mrs. Orlando Bailey, the
temperance evangelists of Minnesota,
who arrived in Los Angeles on Friday

reputation as beautiful singers, and

Railroad Men Arrested for Robbing an
Old Man,
At 1:30 this morning Oscar Carter,
who had arrived the day previous from
San Kiego, was held up on Alameda
street and robbed of $45 in greenbacks.
Carter claims that he was clutched by
the throat, and the pocketbook contain
ing the money taken. He also claimed
that a friend of his had been struck
over the head, just prior to his being
held up. Five railroad men were ar
rested by Officer Vignes in connection
with the alftiir, which is complicated and
very much mixed up. Carter positively
identifies one of the men, and claims
that all of the men arrested were with
the party that held him up. Carter
says that he left the Vienna Buffet to
go around with the railroad men, and
that they robbed him near the corner of
Ducommun and Alameda streets.
The men under arrest gave the names
of T, Lee, H. F. Shaw, John Rowe,
David Spring and John Merrill. Most
of the names are fictitious. About $75
all told were found in their possession.
Shaw having $57.57 of that amount,
mostly in bills, the kind of money lost
by Carter.
The case is very mixed. The railroad
boys are well known in this city.and one
is a son of a reverend gentleman. There
is no doubt that Carter was robbed, but
whether the men under arrest can be
connected with the robbery remains to
be seen.
The Department Called Out Early
This Morning.
A little after 1 o'clock thiß morning
the fire department was called out for a
blaze over on the East Side. A frame
building on Downey avenue, near Hayes
street, was partially destroyed before
the department arrived on the scene.
The building belonged to Mr. Sale. The
principal damage outside of the building
was done to the harness shop of L.
Hammond. The loss will probably foot
up $2000. The origin of the fire is not
Kx-Lord Mayor Knars Mixed l'|> In a
Swindling; Concern
London, May 3.—A sensation lias been
caused by disclosures arising- from a pe
tition for tlie wind up of the Anglo-Aus
trian printing company. Everech Han
sard was its promoter. Managing Di
rector Bottornly.of the Hansard's union,
now bankrupt, received £87,500 out of
£92,000 received from shareholders, as
part of tbe price of the business,
he was supposed to have acquired in
Austria. In addition Bottonily asked
for the total purchase money of £000,000.
Sir Horace Davey, in applying for an
order for the compulsory wind-up of the
company, declared that Bottomly
had never any business of any
sort in Austria to sell. The di
rectorate of the concern, of which
the recent Lord-Mayor Isaacs is chair
man, in September declared a dividend
of 15 per cent, although the company
never possessed any business. Bot
tomly and the directors, within a single
year, - divided among themselves the
whole capital subscribed. An inquiry
being threatened, they formed a com
mittee, which appointed a liquidator,
controlled by the directorate. The judge
before whom the petition was made
ordered the compulsory winding up of
the company's affairs, and dismissed
the liquidator.

The Winnebago Indiana Disgusted With
* ■ Agrloulture.
River Fai.ln, Wis., May 3.—After
three sucewsive failures at farming, the
Winnebago Indians have made up their
minds to Abandon farming, and will
make no further efforts to raise anything
this year on their reservation. Visitors
to their farms find them all neglected,
and if the Indians are ever civilized it
will be some other method than by pre
senting them a series of sand hills.
Meat Inspectors.
Chicago, May B.—Dr. Salmon, chief
of the bureau of animal industry, arrived
today from Washington for the purpose
of establishing government inspectors
at the various packing-houses in accord

Flrea Raging With Great Severity ln
Northern Pennsylvania.
Erie, Pa.. May 3.—Forest fires are
raging with great severity along the line
of the Philadelphia and Erie road, and
it is almost impossible for trainmen to
endure the suffocating smoke in some
parts of the mountain passes. In the
vicinity of Clarendon great trouble is
experienced in keeping the fire
away from the town. At Sheffield
the owners of the oil derricks are
fighting fircß, and have so far
managed to save everything except one
or two rigs. At Ludlow the mountains
are full of fire. At Wilcox tires are run
ning up one sido of the mountain and
down the other. Around Johnnonburg
and Ridgway fires are raging furiously,
but the timber does not come in close
to the town, and they are not in immi
nent danger. Game, including deer, is
chased in herds into the small lumber
ing towns.
Reading, Pa., May 3.—A heavy shower
which fell this morning did more than
the bands ot men who were fighting fire

tinguished by the rainfall, which lasted
two hours.
A Missing Merchant's Body Found ln the
Willamette River.
Portland, Ore., May 3.T-The body of
William Barber, a merchant of Lebanon,
Ore., was found in the Willamette
river today. He left home about three
weeks ago, and came to this city, having
in his possession several hundred dol
lars, with which he intended buying
goods. His long absence from home
alarmed his friends, who notified
the authorities. Today while the
men employed at Governor Pennoyer's
sawmill were rafting logs, Barber's
body was found. It had evidently been
in the water about two weeks. An ex
amination of the body showed that he
had been shot through the head. His
skull was also badly crushed, leaving no
doubt that, the man had been murdered
and thrown into the river. The money
and papers were all missing, and the
only thing left by which he could be
identified, was a small scarf pin. There
is no clue to the murderer.
