A Dangerous Innovation.
Perhaps the most interesting fea
ture of current aTscussion and con
troversy, for tome time past, has
hinged upon the revision of the
Holy Bible. We bave felt a keen
Interest In tbis quite sensational
religious development. Oa tbe
on* band we bave the Roman
Catholio Cburcb wbicb, from a
logics! standpoint, is absolutely in
dependent of any or all editions of
the Bible. Tbat superb organiza
tion puts itsslf forth as baying
been In full, valid and efficacious
vigor before even a single line of
the Bible had been written. ''Thou
art Peter," said Christ, "and upon
thla rock I build my church." Tbe
Roman Catholics claim that the
Pope of to-day is the regular, if not
lineal successor, of the clumsy and
cowardly fisherman of Galilee,
whom Christ honored above all his
Apostles on account of bis brute
Md dog-like fidelity. They point
to those passages of St. Paul iv
which tbe faithful ure exhorted to
hold fast to the traditions, aud the
oldest Christian oburch pluuts it
self absolutely auu entirely upon
tbe goepel aa interpreted by its owu
divine authority. The next oldesi
Christian church, the Greek, takes
precisely tbe ground of tbe Roman
Catholic; and, iv most of ita ob
servances aud details of faith and
practice, though tbe blsrarcby i
different, tbe Greek persuasion is a
remarkable confirmation cf tbe
Catholic claim us to iis light ol in
terpreting the scriptures.
These remarks are merely intro
ductory to tbe statemeut of tbe faci
tbat the revUiou of tbe Bible will
be mainly of interest tn the hun
dred and one Proteetant sects,
wbicb range from thu severe aud
predestinarlau ideas of Calvin lo
tbe loose and purely intellectual
theology of Theodore Parker
When Luther repelled lbs Papal
headship of the Christian church
he starud a multiplicity of sect
whose contradictory opinions hay,
been analyzed and commented upoi
at length by Bossuet, the eaglt
Bishop of Meaux. Since Boseuel't
time the niceties and variations oi
theological opinion in all quarter?
whioh do not rtcognize the infalli
bility of the Pope and the supre
macy ot tl c Roman Curia bavt
increased a huudred-fold. In tbt
United States to-day there is i.
mercurial intellectual Impulse
wbich will either multiply Chris
tian sects or lead, ultimately, to
an absolute denial of all authority
founded upon revelation.
It is at tti ia stage that a council
of learmd meu, oamprlsing many o
tbe eminent churchmen of Eng
land and tho United States, an
nounces a revised Bible which
cuts the ground from under tin
feet of tbe average Protestant. It It
safe to eny that 11 tbe revised Bible
had existed lv their day, Fox'r
Martyrology would have been im
possible and Banyan would nol
b»ve languished iv an English jail,
or bave written his Pilgrim's Prog
ress. Both were fouuded upou a
fanatical belief wbich could noi
have been generated by tho revlseu
While appreciating t ur eutire in
ability to enter upon the field ol
theological polemics, in any detai
or with any authority, we claim t<
be able to diagnose tbe signs of tbt
times. Tbe new Bible will co-ope
rate with the lugersolls of the daj
in dealing v deadly blow ut belie 1
In revelation. When long genera
tions of men and women bave rrg
ulated their daily lives upon tbe
authority aud verity of a sacred
prescription; when all that Is deal
to tbe human heart Is at one blow
swept away, the whole fabric of be
lief is apt to follow. There Is a
homely old adage which runs thai
you can't teach au old dog new
tricks. You can't take the bum
ble and believing Christian, and
above bim Into now grooves, with
out a shock which will unsettle
many of the old timer?, aud throw
tbe rising generation utterly out ol
gear. Bob Ingersoll is an eloquent,
cunning and masterly Vitruvius ol
unbelief. But the revisers of tbe
Bible beat Ingersoll all hol
low. Tbe Calholin and the Greek
church remain undisturbed by any
scheme of Bible revision, bui
tbe manifold Protectant commun
ions are left to struggle with a
movement of unbelief which will
gain momentum as an Incident of
tbe revision. Tbe man of science
will regard tbis result as undiluted
good, While tbe bumble and perse
wariog believer will bug bis King
iaa»Ws Bible to bia heart wltb
■saw v»bsa»sncs than ever. Wbat-
Biblical revision, tho fact is that
the old Bible was a well of Eng
lish undefiled. The people
had become thoroughly habitu
ated to it. The style of the
most nervous and masterly writers
of the English language has been
based upon the King James Bible.
Nearly all the polemical eloquence
and controversial skill of Protest
ant divines have been founded
upon it. In addition, it is certainly
very late in the day to sound the
note of Biblical change and revolu
tion. Tbe old Bible ougal to have
beeu let alone.
The Illustrated Herald
' meets a want loDg felt In this com
munity. In additiou to it 9 artistic
merits, it answers every inquiry
that has been or may bo addressed
to any inhabitant of Los Angeles
about this city or county. The ar
ticle contributed by Judge R. M.
Wldney, under the caption of
"Questions Answered," whs pre
pared with great care by lint gen
tleman, who bus a very Intimate
acquaintance with every phase o[
this section. The atticlss fur
nished by Dr. WJdoey ou Wil

are valuable and scientific, the lat

tbe Californian. lis republication
In its entirety is with the consent
and at tbe desire of Dr. Wldney.
Col. W. R. Olden bus writ.en uu
exhaustive article on the Southern
portion of tbe county, while Gen.
Beale tells wbat be knows of Santa
Monica. The other portions of the
letter print aro intended to make
the review uf our present status,
resources and prospects complete
and harmonious. As to the typo
graphical details of tbe Illustrat
co Herald it is not too much to
say that the work equals if it dot!
uot surpass anything of the kind
previously issued ou tbe American
continent, the design has
been to present the attractions of v
section to possible settlers and in
vestors. The publisher bus taken
a pride iv hie work and b;i« printed
it on a quality of paper finer aud
heavier tbau that ou which Har
per's Weekly is worked off, thus
giving grace ami finish to tho il
lustrations. Tbe cut of Lo-! Ange
les in ISSI, with tbe accompanying
sketch ofthe town in 1557, would
ordinarily be sold for at least tweu
ty-five cents. We have made it a
point to pu'. the Illustrated
Herald ut the popular price of
teu cents, witli the view of facili
tating iis universal circulation.
That such will be tlie result we
cannot doubt after the lively de
maud yesterday.
The Duke of Sutherland, who
appioved himself such a genial
jeutleuiaii during his visit to Los
Angelec, is a goo*! deal of a good
fellow at home, or all accounts be
lie bim. AtTrontliam Hull, near
the Staffordshire potteries, he has
a princely seat, embowered in a
fine park, and invested with the
traditional manoiial dignify. At
Trentbam there is cat and come
tgaiu for every oue, and a boru oi
tie and a chunk of bread and
cheese is at tbe service cf all wbo
call at bis lordly mansion. Those
wbo witnessed the wild and boy
ish delight with whicb the Duke
and bis aistinguished companions
disported iv tbe surf at Santa
Monica will never doubt but tbat
tbis British grandee is at the bot
tom a jolly good fellow. While
the rank is but the guinea's stamp,
.the real gold is often tbere too.
The fact that tbis British peer ot
ulgb desreo is interested in tbe
ailway projects wbicb aim
to develop the Pacific Coast and
Mexico invests bim with an un
usual interest to our people. We
confess that we are a little curious
to hear what Dr. Hussell will have

Monica iv tbe Loudon Times, li

The people of California bear

It is not too much to suy that thoy
would almost prefer eotiug (lie

miscreants who, in the main, com
posed the body just adjourned, had

from a people who have tlevieed a

piteous in its terno.9 thou that

Meyerbeer and the Poet.
One night when be waa In Brus
sels a dust oamo into his tnlnd at 2
A. M. He leaped out of bed, rang
tbe bell for a servant, and asked for
a poet. Tbe servant, Dot knowing
wbat tbat dish was, awoke tbe
master of the house, aud, after sat
isfying himself that Meyerbeer re
ally wanted at tbat bour of tbe
ulgbt a biped wbo turned out verse,
gave bim the address of a well
known Belgian poet, ordereil a cub,
and sent Meyerbeer to the dramat
ist's bouse. Meyerbeer tugged at
tho beil till be brought tbe master,
who auswered tho alarm iv tbe
worst possible humor until the vis.
Itor said:
"I atu Meyerbeer. Aro you a
"Yes, when 1 am in tlie vein;
but at these untimely hours, when
only ohtireb-yards yawn, tlie humor
Is not on me."
"Humor is will; will is inspira
tion; 'twill come. Sit at your
desk and write a duet between a
lover anil his sweetheart. Hero ia
the idea."
Meyerbeer gave his thoughts.
"I would write what you waut a
good deal better after thinking it
over to-night, (live mo uutil to
"No, no, no; write It at ouo>, to
morrow 1 ehall tie iv Horliu."
Tho poet wrote tho duet. Meyer
beer was pleased with it. Ho drew
out his pocket-book, took a lUOO
italic ba ik note from it, and gave
it to tbe poet, saying:
"ile good euough to accept this
rag for your author's loyally, with
a tliousand tbuuks."
It ie said tbis duet was used in
An Old Acquaintance.
Tho late Charles Chapman, who
was iv his day the loremost crim
inal lawyer iv Connecticut, so ably
defended a mau once wbo was

tbat he cot oil'with manslaughter,
although there was scarcoly a
doubt of bis guilt of tho graver of
fense. ; A very prominent citizen
who was convinced of the man's
iruilt was so uunoyed lo think tbat
Chapmuu had saved tbe fellow's
ueck from tbe halter, that be re
fused to speak to tbe distinguished
advocate for a long time after.
A number of years later Mr.
Chapman's door-bell rang, uud a
visitor wus announced.
"Good moruiug, Mr. Chapman,"
was the salutation.
"You have the advantage of mp,"
replied the lawyer. "I do not rec
ognize you."
"My name is-——. Don't you
remember that you got me off for
ten years for killing so and so ?"
"Yes, I do remember it, and I got
throueli with you then and there. 1
want n0..: n j more to do with you,
sir." •
"You nesdn'i !i* «o 'ty.Sli about

you talked to that jury almost
made me believe I didn't do it, and

Old 2sel 1 Giles is a negro fortune
teller at Auguta, Ga. She lives in
a cellar, iv the midst of weird

negroes believe ehe is a veritable
witch. Joe Stevens went to ber

rheumatism. She performed some
mummery over bim, anuoiuted his
rheumatic arm,and tbe pain ceased.
She assured bim tbat be bad been
"conjured" by some secret enemy,
aud that he could uot be perma
nently cured until be sbed tome of

to Joe for discovering the gulty one
was to shake hands witb all his ac
quaintances, voting whose band be

arm. Joe went to church, and did
a great amount of baud shaking
before the services began. His arm

home, procured a long knife, hid it
in his sleeve, returned to tbe
church, and plunged the weapon
Into Andy's heart. Whether this
would have brougbt about tbe cure
