A Sketch of the Career of a Notable Man. A gentleman who has led a quiet life in this city, but who lived in San Fran cisco during the stormy days from 1853 to 1856, and was there prominently identified with the formation of the Re publican party of California, has just died. A sketch of his life condensed from his autobiography published in the Alumni Annual of Washington and Jefferson college, 1887, may therefore prove of interest. John Alexander Wills was born in Pittsburg, Pa., October 21, 1819, of Scotch-Irish Presbyterian lineage. His fatbtfr was one ol the early merchants of tbe time, and died in 1822, leaving his three sons to the care and education of their mother, Eliza Hood Wills, a woman noted for her beauty, ability and zealous piety. She devoted herself to their moral and religious education, deeply impress ing herself upon their minds, and con vinced the subject of this sketch of the fact that a mother is the chief moral ed ucator of a family, and to this convic tion Mr. Wills traces his life-long advo cacy of woman's rights. In 1833 young Wills entered Washing ton college, located at Washington, Pa., i.' jai which he graduated iv 1837 with honors and as the valedictorian of his class, at less than 18 years of age. After graduation he attended the constitu tional convention at Harrisburg, Pa., end visited Washington, D. C, that he might gratify his love of forensic elo quence and hear the most famous speak ers of the day, viz., Clay, Webster, Cal houn, Prentiss and others. In the spring of 1838 he entered the law school of Harvard college, and was taught by the distinguished Judge Story and Prolejsor (ireenleaf, and numbered among his classmates such men as Wm. 0. Deming, Wm. M. Evarts, Ebenezar Kockwood Hoar, Richard H. Dana, James Russell Lowell, Wm. W. Story, .Jordan M. Pugh, Elihu B. Washburn and William Ingersoll Bowditch, and graduated as LL, B. in July, 1840. After leaving Harvard he entered the iaw office of Walter H. Lowrie of Pitts burg, afterwards chief justice of Penn sylvania, and was admitted to the'bar in LB4L He practiced in the coarts of Pittsburg, the supreme court of the state, and the United States district court until the fall of 1853. In 1848 he was married to Charlotte U'Moyne, eldest daughter of the dis tinguished physician and surgeon, phil anthropist and reformer, Dr. Francis Julius LeMovne of Washington, Pa. Beginniug'life a Democrat, Mr, Will? . early became an aggressive opponent of slavery, joining in 1842 the Liberty -*rty, in 1843 the Free Soil party, and in lbS* » lie Republican party, and took au active in all the political campaigns from 1842 to 1872, and made several speeches in Loa Angeles during the campaign of 1888. In November, 1853, he left Pittsburg and removed to San Francisco, where he practiced law until 1856. He then went east as a prominent member and chairman of the California delegation to the Republican National convention held in Philadelphia in 1856, which nomi nated General Fremont. He was made a member of the committee on platlorm, and was assigned the duty of drafting resolutions in favor of the Pacific rail road and against slavery in the terri tories, because those were the two sub jects in which California was supposed to be most interested. In drawing up these resolutions, Mr. Wills became the author of the now famous phrase, "The twin relics of bar barism. Polygamy and Slavery. In a paper upon the subject, written by request for the Historical society of Southern California, Mr. Wills says with truth • "If it can be shown that the phrase in question was used in congress or elsewhere before the 18th day of June, "m, then others may have some claims THE LOS ANGELES TTERALD: MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER SU 1891. to concurrent authorship; but if not, then it can only be one of those cases of parallelism in thought and expression which sometimes occur, when the idea of plagiarism cannot reasonably be sup posed." Mr. Wills for a time practiced law in Chicago, and became connected with the famous ''Sanbar Case" vs. Illinois Central railroad, which he finally argued before tbe United ■ States supreme court, being associated with Edwin M. Stanton in the case. He now settled in Washington, D. C, when his especial studies in California of the "Spanish and Mexican land laws of California" secured him a place as special counsel for the government. This place he held under five successive attorney-generals: Speed, Bates, Stans berry, Hoar and Evarts; indeed, until that class of cases was finally disposed of from 1862 to 1878. Here he was able to save millions of acres of public land for the nation by defeating the many fraudulent land grants of California and Colorado. In 1870 the honorary degree of L.L. D. was conferred on bim by his alma mater. In 1802 he became one of the uational volunteers to defend the south ern border of Pennsylvania from inva sion and served as a private soldier in a company formed in Washington, Pa., commanded by Major John H. Ewing, known as the "Silver Grays" which be longed to the 6th regiment Pennsyl vania volunteers. He was recommend ed by James G. Blame and others for the United States supreme bench, but Grant, owing to tremendous pressure from Pennsylvania, especially Philadel phia, appointed Judge Strong. The failure of Jay Cooke in 1873 swept away a large part of Mr. Wills' fortune, and from 1873 to IS7S he was fully occupied in the settlement of his financial affairs. During these years also, he investi gated and became a firm believer in modern spiritualism, aud so continued until his death. In 1880, Mr. Wills, with bis wife and daughter, spent a year in European travel, and upon their re turn retired from the bar to devote him self to reading, study and the composi tion of an exhaustive work on Juris prudence, which he hoped to make the crowning work of his life. This great project of his later years was to aid in "the inventionof some method whereby justice shall, ipso facto, be made law." In 1884 Mr. Wills removed with his family to Los Angeles, California, where he made for himself and them a lovely home on the historic Fort hill, where his death occurred November 26, 1891, after a lone and painful illness, the re sult of old heart trouble. Mr. Wills's life in Los Angeles was that of a quiet, studious, thoughtful man, whose brilliant earlier life had earned him a peaceful old age, but whose mind was as vet undimined and his mental powers unshaken. Mr. Wills toot a prominent part in the establishment of the crematory in Los Angeles, being a director of the Crematory society, and by his example testified to his belief in this sanitary re form which is rapidly spreading throughout the civilized world. He was a life-long advocate of temperance, liberty of thought and action, with charity for all, willing to investigace all innovations, and showing by bis large library, covering all topics, the breadth and ecope of his literary attainments. The long and fatal illness interfered, however, with the completion of his life-long ambition and great project, but in all the walks of a long life he had deserved and received deep affection, re spect and success. Los Angeles has lost a noble, gentle man. y, p. s, c, E, The Proceedings Yesterday of the Society- One of the largest and most enthu siastic gatherings of young people ever held in the city took place yesterday afternoon at the First Presbyterian church. The young people's society for Chris tian endeavor met at the Y. M. C. A. at 2:00 p.m. and had prayer meeting, conducted by A. B. Clapp, after which they repaired in a body to the church, singing as they marched in. The main body of the church was reserved for the society, while the gallery was thrown open to the public, and every seat in the edifice was taken. On the platform were Rev. J. H. Collins, Rev. J. A. Smithers, W. R. Guy, M. C. Tuyner, both of San Diego: Miss M. Phiebe Jones, and E. B. Hughes, presi dent of the state society. The meeting was opened by sing ing two hymns, the audience stand ing. It was something inspiring to see the young people stand in a body and hear them sing with all their young en thusiasm and earnestness. Rev. J. H. Collins was introduced and spoke on "Christian Endeavors' use of the Bible." In his remarks he said: When a boy and entering a manufac tory to work he was shown a list of regulations, and so it was with the young endeavorer; the Bible was his list of regulations and they should be studied closely. Why should young endeavorers use the Bible? First that they may become acquainted with God and with God's benevolence with the human family. Second, to find out His dealings with His children. Thiid, to find out our responsibility for others. God will reward us if we are worthy and reward us with ten times the strength expended for Him, and we learn how miserable is man and how low he falls when left to his own resources. There are thirteen places in the Old Testament where He has offered to raise man, but his course has been down. HoW much should we use of the Bible t Don't give up a single chapter. How may we best fit ourselves for the use of the Bible? First—Prayerful study. Moody devoted six hours a day to reading between the verses while on bended knee, and today he fairly bristles with the word of God. Second—Systematic study. Take cer tain hard words and find out where they occur in the Bible and then use them yourself. Thereason some ministers and people are so far from the path is because oi their unfamiliarity with the Bible. Third — Continuous study. By it some verse wiil unexpectedly unfold new beauties. And the only way to meet the many knotty problems and questions of this battle, is to get the bible at your finger's and tongue's end. Singing then followed, after which Mr. K. B. Haveß thanked the people for the reception of the society, and an offering was taken up. The delegates of Los Angeles county were also asked to meet after the exercises to effect an organization in their county. Rev. A. J. Smithers next spoke en Christian iellowship. He said: It is necessary for a band to have co-oper ation, which is the vitality of organiza tion. .

To bring about the union a partner ship of equality, of obligation and of re sponsibility is necessary. Christianity ia the only thing that holds men together, and the reason is because of its being centered in Jesus Christ, the Son of Man. There is no organization that could have come together like this society, and they have done so because they have gotten beyond the bounds of any and all churches. And this has always been the intent oi the society, and they are happy' in the result. Ingersoll gets his power out of chUrch anity and not from Christianity. Christ and the Bible are the prime factors of the civilization of today. And it is these two that will finally lead us to salvation." After singing, Mr. W. R. Guy offered a prayer, and then followed interesting remarks from members of the different delegations, giving evidence of the en thusiasm and sincerity of the speakers. The Los Angelea county delegation re cited standing the Lord's prayer, and the San Diego members sang. The young people then joined hands in a circle around the auditorium and in the aisles and sang. Rev. J. H. Collins offered" prayer, and the society repeated their own benedic tion. Mr. Haves declared the first session of the Y. P.S. C. E. adjourned. Then followed singing and the people dispersed. The session has been very success ful in all respects, and the next one will be held in San Diego November, 1892. The attendance at tbe meetings has generally averaged 500. Services were held by the society at the various churches of which they may have been members.

On Tuesday of this week we will open all the holiday departments and booths that we shall show upon our main-floor salesroom. The space heretofore occu pied by dress goods will be occupied by our book and novelty art department. Our stationery department will be temporarily removed into a portion of our mil linery department, and in its stead Christmas cards, holiday novelties of various kinds will be displayed. In all portions of our store we will attempt to make spe cial displays of the various classes of holiday goods that we think will interest you and merit your notice. Our basement salesroom is now complete with all sorts of toys and holiday novelties, china, crockery, household furnishings, dolls, games, wagons, veloci pedes, silverwear, bisque and fancy goods of innumerable description. You will find our prices on holiday goods, quality considered, lower than heretofore. We have contented ourselves marking these goods at a less ratio of profit than ever in the history of our house, believing in the motto, the best goods for the lowest pos sible price. By this, with this, and in this, we hope to make such an unparalleled and continued success of our business that its gigantic steps will be more than noticeable to our hitherto generous public. For Monday and Tuesday we place on sale the herein below enumerated arti cles, which you will find to be extremely cheap in price and the moat serviceable of merchandise.

At $10 to $15 we give yon fur trimmed coats that cannot be matched between $20 and $25 elsewhere; this is not idle talk, but it is a fact; come in and look at our garments, and then go to the cloak bouse; we will take the chances on your buying ours. MILLINERY DEPARTMENT. Our millinery department this season has been most recherche; we have striven to have the finest and choicest, while retaining the prices for which we are noted ;we believe that every article of merchandise can be sold, no matter how good, if at a reasonable profit. In millinery we have demonstrated what can can be done in the way of fine artistic work at reasonable prices. We give you the best grades of felt goods and straw goods made by the best manufacturers at prices that you have to pay for goods of inferior make; we do not pose, as being the only people from whom you can buy merchandise in the millinery line, but what we claim is our ribbonß, hats, feathers and birds are bought from the manu facturer, our trimmings and novelties from the importer; we discard the jobber entirely. Other establishments who cannot use the volume of goods are obliged to buy from tbe jobber, where they can get smaller quantities and larger assort ment.
