JOHN A. WILLS.
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.

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. .

men together—death and Christianity,
and with them all are equal.
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.

to powdered charcoal, are now used in

PEOPLE'S STORE.
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1891.
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.
DOMESTICS.
42 inch bleached pillow case muslin, 7c a yard; regular price 15c.
Printed flannel back suitings, B,' 3 c ; regular price 15c. *
Cotton dress effects, called bedford cords, printed, 12}h'c; in imitation of tho
line French goods.

TABLE LINEN.
Three qualities on sale tomorrow; one at 50c, one at 75c and one at $1; spe
cial vaiue at each price.
Napkins, two qualities, $1.75 and $2.50, 3 4 size.
Towels, from 15c to 75c apiece.
DRAPERY DEPARTMENT.
Just received, a new line of table covers, scarfs, mantel drapes, chair throws,
and other new and exquisite drapery effects.
Our line of comforts, for price and quality, we have never been able to equal;
we are selling a comfort this season for $3 that we have never been able to place
before less than $4.
Our line of comforts ranges in prices from $1 to $10 apiece; you will find a
saving of 33} 3 per cent over our last year's prices.
Our line of blankets comprises the best makes of eastern and California, in
price from $1.75 to $15 a pair; will be found exceptional values.
In quilts and bedspreads we show a very large and choice line, and the prices
are most reasonable; our $1 quilt is a beauty.
Angora rugs, very beautiful, 6 feet long and 3 feet wide, at $2 apiece; hereto
fore we always sold these rugs at $3. We bought from the estate of an importer
30 bales, or 6000 rugs, which enables us to place them at this price ; eastern tour
ists tell us that they pay from $6 to $10 apiece for them in the east; they are gen
uine angora, imported from Yokohoma.
FLANNELS.
Best California red flannel, extra heavy, 45c and 50c a yard; blue California
flannel, 50c a yard. All wool red flannel, eastern made, 20c a yard.
CLOAKS.
Whatever we have in our cloak department is from $2.50 to $10 a garment less
than you can buy them anywhere in town; there is scarcely a free agent in the
cloak line in this town; they are more or less under some ebhgations to houses
that they get their goods from. With us, coin talks; and we have the markets of
the world to purchase from. At $7.50 we give you an astrakhan trimmed coat
that cannot be matched in this town under $12. 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. We are not exaggerating when we say that the millinery consumed by our
Los Angeles and San Francisco houses is more in volume and amount than all the
millinery stores in Los Angeles combined.

Our line of silk handkerchiefs, both for meH .and ladies, is most magnificent
in quality, in printing and embroidering; we want yotfr verdict; the line runs from
35c to $3.50 apiece.
GLOVES.
The celebrated Foster 5-hook glove, $1 a pair; all colors.
The 7-hook Foster glove, $1.50 a pair; these gloves are branded on the inside
William; we have two other qualities, the Fowler and Fosterina; we warrant
