The following ministers occupied seats
on the platform: Dr. Chichester, Dr.
Crabbe, Dr. Smithers, Dr. Heisler, Dr.
Hutchins, Dr. Colmery and Dr. Starkey.
Dr. Chichesteropened the service, and
was followed by Dr. Smithers, who made
the opening prayer. Dr. Heisler read
the Thanksgiving proclamation. The
scripture was read by Dr. Colmery, and
Dr. Hutchins led in prayer. An appeal
for assistance to the Ladies' Aid society
was made by Dr. Chichester.
Rev. Dr. Crabbs preached the sermon
on the text, Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits. Psalm
Extracts from the sermon follow :
This day completes another cycle in
the calendar of time, and in response to
the invitation of the president of our
• country and the governor of the state of
California, we are assembled to return
thanks to Almighty (iod, our Heavenly
Father, for His manifold mercies to us
during the year which is drawing to a
close, and to give expression to our grat
itude by appropriate and liberal offer
ings for the benefit of the needy.
I respect the thought that it is a day
of thanksgiving and of almsgiving, and
not a day for murmuring and com
plaining and grumbling, although there
might be in the minds of some cause for
these rather than for the giving of
thanks. Nor do we feel disposed to •
make it the occasion for finding fault
with the government on account of its
shortcomings, as is often done, and tak
ing a pessimistic view of things in gen
I once heard a minister announce as a •
text for Thanksgiving sermon, "It is a
good thing to give thanks unto the
Lord," and he began "straightway" by
saving, "We have come here to point
out the sin of this government and
mourn over the corruption of American
politics," and from the beginning to the
end of the discourse there was nothing
to suggest the thought of thanksgiving,
save the text which he announced.
I, of course, will not be understood as
even intimating that there are no Maws
to be found in our government, or that
we have no sins of which we are, as a na
tion, guilty, and which ought to be re
proved ; but, notwithstanding all this,
we do not feel at liberty, nor do we be
lieve it the proper thing to turn a day
of thanksgiving into a day of parading a
long, dark catalogue of sins before the
public, nor to turn it into a day of
mourning, especially when we have
abundant reaiOn for pouring out our
hearts in gratitude to our Heavenly |
To do otherwise, it seems to ine,would
be like a father calling hia children to
gether for a day of festivity and joy, and
when they are assembled and ready
to enter upon the joys of the occasion,
turning it into a day of sorrow by re
counting the shortcomings of the house
hold and the want of reverence and
respect for authority. There might
of course be just cause for his reproofs,
but it would be a very improper time
In like manner it does not seem like,
the right thing when we are called upon
by our ruler to meet in our own re
spective places of worship to give thanks
to Almighty God for his mercies, to turn
the day into something different from
that which was intended. A day of
fasting, humiliation and prayer would
be an appropriate time for such a course.
Then it would be perfectly proper to
point out the many and aggravated sins
of the nation, and to call upon the peo
ple as Jonah did the Ninevites to repent,
and if possible stir their hearts even as
the Ninevites were stirred,
We desire, therefore, to give our
thoughts to the theme suggested by tbe
text— Thanksgiving. Let us call upon
our souls and all that is within us, every
faculty and power of our being, to bless
and praise God's holy name for all his
Let us be grateful for the day itself.
We should be exceedingly thankful that
our chief rulers are men, as we take
them to be from the spirit of their proc
lamation, of thankful hearts, recogniz
ing that their thankß are due to Him
who hath done so great things for us
as a people. We love to see it
in them, and earnestly hope that
the proclamation of those in authority,
calling us together in the capacity in
which we are assembled today, may be
moie and more framed after the people
which recognizes the Lord Jesus as the
mediator between God and man and as
the ruler of the nations of the earth.
But we should, as I said, be thankful
for this "blest thanksgiving day," be
cause it has a tendency to cultivate a
spirit of thankfulness which is not only
scriptural but is an exceedingly helpful
A thankiul heart is compared by some

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 27, 1891.
one to a "fountain full of sweet water
which is continually sending forth
streams of gladness, fertilizing and
beautifying the otherwise arid fields of
Cheerfulness, helpfulness and the en
thusiasm of high endeavor are the
daughters of gratitude.
The memory that is continually filled
with the warm pulsations of grateful
recollections will be invited to patient
continuance in well doiDg, and in all
circumstances, bright or dark, will
cleave and cling to the Infinite Lover,
and disposer of all things. A daily
recognition of the divine power in its
normal sovereignty over the affairs of
men, a filial acknowledgement of bene
fits received from our Heavenly Father,
and a hearty reliance in the wisdom and
benignity of that providence which is
overall impart strength, comfort and
peace that "passeth all understanding."
A good man's trust is the certain
pledge of comdete victory in the end
over all enmities and hindrances and
the gratitude seasons all his experien
ces of whatever sort, with a joy that
giveth songs in the deepest sorrow.
Thankfulness exalts its possessors into
fellowship with Him from whom Com
eth "every good and every perfect gift."
It is also that act of homage which is
due the Divine Benefactor from all peo
ple, particularly his own dear children.
It will not do for us to Hatter ourselves
tbat when this day is gone we are not to
concern ourselves about gratitude to
God. Every day brings new blessings
to us from God's beneficent hand and
for all these new hymns of praise
should daily rise to Jehovah.
We should also be thankful for this
day because of its elevating and Christ
ianizing influences, and, as long as the
national Thanksgiving day is a matter of
national and state proclamation and of
general observance we need not despair
of the religious character of the na
tion. We cannot but recognize the
elevating and Christianizing influence
of the day. We do not mean by this
that it stands on an equality with the
Lord's day, and yet we are glad to rec
ognize its heathful influence in this di
rection. It is certainly a grand thought
that the eyes of a whole nation are
turned in this manner, once every year,
to Him who is our best benefactor, and
when invited to remember Him with
grateful hearts in their prayers, praises
and in the bestowment of their charities
for the help of the needy.
There is no way apparently that God
is brought so prominently before the
whole nation as by the nationalTbanks
giving proclamation. It comes directly
from the chief ruier of the nation ; it is
published in almost every secular paper
in the land, and in all the religious
journals, and in this manner is brought
directly before the mindsof every reader
and immediately arrests the attention
of the entire nation. We may go even
further and say that every proclamation
of the chief magistrate which acknowl
edges our indebtedness as a people to
the Almighty for continued favors, is a
decided rebuke to, if not a check
upon that materialism which
•claims "that the universe is only a vast
machine, and that its operationawire not
the result of intelligent design."
The very fact that from millions of
hearts throughout our land there rolls
heavenward this day "that song of glad
consent" which bears to the ear of the
Almighty the swelling notes of praise
and thanksgiving, is a matter for pro
foundest gratitude. It thrills the heart
to know that in mansion and cottage, in
"the lofty church edifice" and in the
"rural meeting house," there is but one
theme engaging every mind and one
song of praise uttered by every voice,
and that theme and that song have been
inspired by means of this day of Thanks
It is true there are other days of pe
culiar interest to the people of this na
tion. The Fourth of July carries us
hack in thought to the day of the na
tion's birth, and keeps fresh in our
memories the days of heroic struggles
for liberty and independence.
The 22d of February commemorates
the life of the republic's first, and one,
if not the noblest, oi its leaders, for even
at this distant day we have not ceased
to love and respect the name of Wash
ington, who was the agent in the hands
of God in securing to us a heritage of
liberty which is priceless in value.
There is also the 30th of May, a sad,
sorrowful day, which we, perhaps, have
not learned' to appreciate as muoh as
some others, because it reminds ua of
pain and suffering aud death, and
brings fresh tears to our eyes as we
strew the graves of our noble dead with
sweet flowers as tokens of our remem
brance and love.
But of all the landmarks, there is not
one that expresses more truly the past
history of our nation than the national
Thanksgiving. There ib not one so ele
vating and Christianizing as the last
Thursday of November, for while it is
true that the Fourth of July speaks of a
time when the republic came into ex
istence, and the 22d of February com
memorates the birth of one who led the
nation's armies to victory and became
its first ruler, and the 30th of May
marks a period in our history so sad
and sorrowful,yet so prophetic of joy
and prosperity, still, behind all these,
there lies a force without which these
interesting records would never have
What then is that force which lies
back of all these, which gives the nation
Buch vigor and strength ?
Is it her broad and extensive terri
tory or princely wealth ?
Is it what nature has done for us in
beautifying and strengthening our po
It it our armies or navies, or the num
ber of our citizens? It it our schools
and colleges or our development and
progress in the arts and sciences?
No! Not necessarily in any one or all
of these things. It might have all these
things. It might have all these and yet
be weak without this force. Back of all
that which is material and intellectual
there is God, the maker, preserver and
bountiful benefactor of all men; who
hath secured all our blessings through
the mediation of His own dear Son. No
nation has ever been or ever will be
great in the truest sense without God;
and when I say this I do not mean "an ab
straction," but led in the person of His
Son, by whom we are told the worlds
were created. Nations must be founded
upon truths and principles and these
i must have their origin in Him who is the
author of truth, yea who says of Him
self, "I am truth."
We should be thankful for this day
because it affords us a suitable opportu
nity of reviewing the past When
we begin to enumerate God's mercies to
us as a people we find it
exceedingly difficult to know just where
to begin and where to end; what to
mention first and what to put last, and
hence, in our perplexity, we feel like
summing them up in the aggregate in
the words: Forget not al) his benefits.
What a catalogue they would make if
we could remember them all—would
that we could!
As we turn over the leaves of the past
year—the book contains three hundred
and sixty-five of them, we will find a
good many pages bordered in black, on
which is recorded the death of perhaps
some noble hero, some great statesman
or philanthropist or scholar. We read
on another page of fearful and thrilling
disasters and calamities, both by sea
and land, but we are willing, we trust,
to class even these, however frightfully
dark or mysterious they may be, among
the wise providences of Him who rules
the universe, though they seem at the
time to be the dark frowninga of Him
who is King of kings.
We turn another leaf and we discover
that the daya and weks and months
have come and gone in their usual or
der, bringing with them their seasons
freighted with harvests, fruits and flow
era, and in all these we recognize the
regularity of physical laws and the nice
adjustment of these laws to society.
On another page we read of a well
ordered government; a government
whose citizens are industrious, inde
pendent, valorous, and in most cases
happy and content with their heritage.
We also find peace within the borders
of our land. While other nations have
been and are now seriously disturbed
with war and rumors of war, peace has
spread her wings over us and smiles be
nignly upon us. . . .
We' turn another leaf and read of
abundant harvests—enough for all—
the grain fields have passed their har
vests beyond the reach of floods and
frosts, and other destructive agencies of
which we hear so much, so that we can
all sing our glad thanksgiving in tbe
language of the psalmist: "They shout
for joy ; they also sing."
And let us sing it with gladness today,
for, in the language of another (I be
lieve it is Talmage), "God has a table
spread today which reaches from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, and He has
guests from far and near." ....
I do not forget tbat there may be
some here today who are ready to say :
"That inventory of blessings is not for
me or mice. Oh' I have a list so dif
ferent! It is dimmed with tears and
blackened with sorrow, and from my
heart there comes a dirge instead of an
anthem. I cannot sing; I cannot thank
God. Sickness, loss of health and wealth
and bereavements; disappointments and
blasted hopes—these have entered my
home and torn my heart and been my
portion. How can Ibe thankful?"
Are there such here today? We would
not chide you in your grief, nor on ac
count of it, but would, after tbe manner
and example of our Lord, deal gently—
speak tenderly, and bid you look away
from these sorrows that so toss the soul
and threaten to shipwreck your faith,
and look up.
The gospel of Christ enables the child
of God to be thankful even for the ills
of life. May God enable us, who care
not only to express our gratitude in
words, but with generous hearts and
full hands remember the poor whom we
always have with us. Let us feed the
hungry, clothe the naked and smooth the
road made rough by poverty and trials
to others. Let us endeavor to throw a
gleam of sunshine into some sorrowful
life and lift the burden from some heart
oppressed. Israel's poet sings:
Thou crownest the year with thy glad-
And Thy paths drop fatness.
They drop upon the pastures of the
And the hills are gilded with joy.
The pastures are clothed with flocks ;
The valleys are also covered with
Having done this we can gather
around our own tables and with truly
grateful hearts, say to the Lord of
heaven and earth, "My cup runneth
over." Blessed be His name.
The congregation sang America, and
after prayer by Rev. Dr. Colmery the
service was concluded with the benedic
tion by Dr. Starkey.

Mr. Collins took for his text the first
half of the second verse of the ninety-fifth
psalm, "Let us come before His pres
ence with thanksgiving." Summarized
he said: That if the audience ejected
to hear a pessimist they would be dis
appointed, for he came with a heart full
of thanksgiving. This day had been set
aside by "the father of his country" to
be a thanksgiving, and the custom had
been followed by all succeeding presi
dents. The war "vessels of our country
ride upon all waters and are looked
upon by all other countries as the repre
sentatives of a great nation. He told an
incident about General Garfield, show
ing how the great man felt an interest
in all poor boys.
Wißdom has so far blessed the gov
ernment of this country. No iron heel
of a tyrant tramples upon the Jews, no
crown prince heaps infamy upon us by
his gambling scandals, no Baluaceda
attempts to assume dictatorship, no
Boulanger dies by his own hand at the

meetings for secret plotting, no part of
the nation writhes under the oppression
of an aristocratic parliament. And the
time is not far distant when the cry of
Canada for annexation will be answered,
and freedom be accorded her under the
stars and stripes.
There have been amicable relations
between capital and labor, and the men
who are bringing forward the latter's
rights are men of caution, and have
spared us shedding any blood.
The manufactories of New England,
the fields of the south, the regions of the
