The papal secretary of state, Cardinal Rampolla, gave a great diplo matic dinner. The holy father, through hie secretary of state, sent a message of greeting to the United States in which be expressed his earnest and unswerv ing affection for thia country.

Meyer delivered a sermon appropriate to the occasion. bt. Vincent's church, in ao far aa its interior is concerned, presents a most beautiful appearance. The congrega , tion of the faithful yesterday wds large. ' The people filled the. holy edifice.

The prießtly orator gave a very interesting biographical sketch of the holy father in the course of which he took occasion to dwell upon the many manifestations of knowledge, piety and power to govern Bishop Francis Mora. mankind. In concluding hia sermon Father Meyer urged upon all true Catholica tbe importance of reverencing and obeying tbe holy father, in all things, both temporal and Bpiritual. The reverend father took for his morn ing lesson the eixth chapter of the second epistle of St. Paul to the Corinth iana. In opening he stated tbat upon tbie, the occasion of the fiftieth anniver sary of Pope Leo XIII. elevation to the episcopacy, it would not be out of place to give a brief biography of the holy father. Leo is a native of the Pontifical states, having been born at Carplneto on March 2, 1810. Hia parents were of noble birth, and Leo waa the youngest of six children. Early in life he gave evidence of his wonderful ability and of hia great devotion. At tbe age'of 8 he was placed in college by his father, and later attended a university in Rome. Father Meyer referred to the ability that the holy father manifested in tlie various stations he occupied in the church—as governor of several pontifical states wherein disturbances had arisen. The holy father bad proceeded to settle all difficulties and to heal all differences. Ihe oanae of the troubles in the states he had governed waa the old con flict be tween the rich and the poor. Leo had carefully investigated the situation be fore he acted, and moved carefully. The result was that within a short time all went well, trouble diaappeared and peace reigned. The ability of Leo in government waa fully atteßted by the results he accom plished aa delegate to Spoleto, Peru gia.. He was later seat as a papal nuncio to Belgium, and here he showed marked ability as a diplomat. But hia health failed him, and he was forced to return to Italy. Since January 10,1816, and up to Feb ruary 20, 1878, Leo was the archbishop of Perugia, as Cardinal Joachim Pecci. On February 7, 1878, Pope Piua IX paaeed away. On the eecond day of the same month he had given hia last allo cument to the cardinals. The election of a new pope had been looked forward to with alarm, but the conclave assembled in Rome without difficulty. On February 18th the cardi nals to the number of 60 convened. On the 20th tbe cardinal archbiahop of Pe rugia—Joachim Pecci —received 45 votes, an overwhelming majority, and was duly declared Roman pontiff. He gave his blessing In St. Peter's, and was crowned March 3, 1878, in that basilica. Rev. Father Meyer referred to the long life of Leo, which had been devoted to the service of God, and in closing he rorE LEO XTTI. adjured all true Catholica to reverence his name and obey his commands. The sermon was closely listened to by the large congregation. HIS FIRST AND LATEST ACTS. During the IS years that Leo has occu pied the chair of St. Peter many reforms have been accomplished within the church. The first act of his pontificate waa the restoration of the Catholic hierarchy in Scotland. Thia had long engaged the attention of Piua IX, his predecessor, and had been decided upon prior to his d«ath. March 4, 1878, by a letter apostolic, Leo restored the ancient archepißcopal Bees of St. Andrews and (jlaßgow, and created the episcopal sees of Aberdeen, Dunkeld, Whitborn or Galloway, and Argyll and the Isles. Thus the Catho lics of Scotland, who had from the time of the reformation been Subjected to vicara apostolic, had a regular episcopal organization. In April, 1878, Leo issued hia firat encyclical which foreshadowed his pol icy, and which was regarded as a most remarkable paper, displaying the won derful ability, knowledge and foresight of the holy father. Continuing the policy of Pius IX, Leo declined to hold any direct communica tion with King Humbert of Italy. He encouraged the Catholic societies of Italy to labor especially for the Christian education of youth. When the new government of Italy prohibited religious instruct ion in the schools Leo protested strongly. During the entire 15 years that Leo XIII has filled the chair of St. Peter he has always manifested the greatest in terest in the United States and upon all occasions he has recognized this as the greatest republic on earth. One of his latest acta was the appointment of Mon- Bignor Satoli as apostolic delegate to the United States. AT THE CATHEDRAL. The fiftieth Episcopal jubilee of Pope Leo XIII waß oelebrated in fitting man ner at the cathedral yesteiday morning at 10 o'clock. Solemn high maBB waa aaid, followed with the Te Deum. Thoße officiating were Father Doyle, Rev. Wm. Dye. deacon. Rsv. Father McAuliffe waa sub-deacon and also preached the sermon. Bishop Mora assisted at the mass. OPPOSITION ON THE ROUTES. Lively Time.

Dr. Thomson of Unity Church Preaches on the Sinless Christ. The Yorkshire Revlvallat Scores a Success—Dr. Thomson's Strong Discourse — At Trin ity Church. Isaac Naylor haa repeated the "veni, vidi, vici," of the greatest of all the Roman emperora. Beginning at the usual Sunday morning hour with a fairly good house, he held forth to a big crowd at the afternoon hour and by the time that evening service hour had arrived the motto was "Breathing Room, Only." Personally speaking, there is little about him that is preposeessing, while in repose. He has a lovely figure, though not a fat man, with a heavy, stolid face, brown hair, auburn beard and a low forehead. His face would indicate that he had not neglected the roast beef of Yattendon or the pork pies of Melton Mowbray; and to meet him on the streets of Melbourne of a Sunday morn ing with the chimes of St. Dunstans ringing in your ears, you would merely take him for a thrifty young mechanic who preferred going to church rather tban squander his time and money in a Collins street "pub." But the moment he comes forward to pray, the man iB transfigured. His heavy features light up as though he were a warrior going into battle and, as he kneels before you on the bare plat form, you realize that there is eloquence apart from etateamanehip. Then his voice, deep enough for a Santley and clear enough for Sims Reeves, wins you over to him before he has uttered ten words. With not a syllable shot from the mouth nor the slightest approach to the bellowing resorted to by so many of his sex, his vigorous baritone pervaded every nook and corner ln as fervent and eloquent a supplication to the throne of Grace as ever came from the lips of Whitfield himself. One of his apos tropbies to the Savior waa something like this: "White-robed Prince of Bethlehem, Thorn-crowned King of Golgotha, Im mortal Victor of Cavalry, let Thy merci ful teachings to mankind be held holy in their hearts from generation to gener ation, as long as tbe moon shines down upon the waves Thy feet have trod at Galilee, and as long as Thy unerring truth stands forth as the fitting witness of God's love for the world!" There la no falter in hia utterances, no tripping in hia delivery. He flnda the worde of exhortation by the same inspiration that gave the words of "La Marseillaise" to Rouget de L'tßle. Over the vast hall hia rich voice rolled away, as welcome as the ripple of the waves on the eauds at Bunset. He is a very manly man, and resorts to no clap traps to gather in your sympathies. And this was particularly noticeable when he invoked the Divine blessing upon all the churches in this city—Cath olic and Protestant alike—and said, "Bless every hoUBe whose doors are opened in Thy name 1" But a still greater surprise awaited hia auditors, and that waa the singing of the hymn, "Gather Them in from the Highways," as a solo, followed by the whole congregation as a chorus. There has never been any such voice in a Los Angeles choir, the nearest ap proach to it being that of John Murray of tbe Carleton opera troupe. It ia of the rare type known as a basso con stants, being neither a baritone nor a baeß, but ranking between the two. It ia common to hear good tenore articu late the words of a song aa he doea. but moat Bingers with aa big a voice as Mr. Naylor'a mouth their words badly. It was a real musical treat to hear a man sing with the earnestness in wbich he phrases a hymn. He preached just a trifle too long, but it waß all good material, hie text being from St. Mark, llth chapter, 24th verae, and reading: "Therefore I say unto yon, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them." The speaker then went on to say that however we asserted our own personal independence in life, we are for all that the slaves of our deßirea. Sometimes those desires corrupt our better naturea and debaae our manhood. But there are deairee that are human and still enno bling. After citing several exampleß, he came to the case of the Savior restoring eight to the blind man by the highway, and he drew a word-picture worthy of the gallant Baker who fell at Ball's bluff. It wsb not a mere aggregation of silvery sentences and gracefully ren dered periods. It was rather the con sonance of thought and action that made Quintflian give as his belief that "it is delivery that bears Bway in ora tory." Forcible in everything and the* atrical in nothing, he gave forth such an elocutionary effort as recalled Charles Kean'a recitation of Ay toun's''Execution of Montrose." He should limit hia sermons to 40 minutes, and if he can compress bis ut terances into half an hour, so much the better. He has a very clearly denned Yorkshire brogue, but he is not a John Browdie by any means. He uses excel lent English on all occasions, which waa Bomething of a treat in itself. The re porter came away at the close of the sormon, and felt like going back again iv tbe evening. It is refreshing to meet a man who is free from pedantry and the earnestness of whose nature is so plainly impressed upon the most care less listener. Mr. Naylor will leave many warm and sincere friends behind him when he leavea Los Angeles. At Trinity Church. Rev. Selah W. Brown, D.D., preached yesterday morning at Trinity Methodist church to a large and appreciative audi ence. The sermon was fully up to the high standard of this able and popular divine. The text was taken from the 01st pealm: He Shall Give His Angels Charge Over Thee. The preacher began by saying that, bo far as we know, there are but two intel ligent classes of beings—angelß and men. Of these, the first named were first created, for there waa an angelic chorus of praises when the foundations of the world were laid; and there was an evil angel present to seduce and destroy shortly after man was made in Eden. Then the angels are mightier, wiser and better than men. In proof of these propositions many proof teste were cited, and strong and telling argu ments were made. The speaker anticipated many ques tions that might suggest themselves as I to when the angels were created, where they were placed, why aome of them fell from their first estate, and so on, answering such as could be answered, and assuring his hearers that tbey might find answers to all thereat within the space ot 100 yeara. He boldly main tained that the fallen angels never were in heaven, and insisted that all our notions to that effect were bor rowed irom John Milton. The argument then turned upon the employment of the angels as messen gers and ministers from Qod to men, in which argument many texts were cited, and many tender and power ful appeals were made. The spirit was brought wondrous nigh, and man found himself in closest toue,h with bis elder brethren of the angelic order. It was spiritualism, but of a wholesome kind. For the bettei part of an hour the preacher-oratoi tv d his hearers in rapt attention. Dr. Stradley, the , istor, announced that next Sunday worn \ be a great day for the church, and that Bishop Hay good would preach at the morning hour. The Sinless Christ. Dr. Thomson preached yesterday morning to an audience that crowded the large building to the doors, taking hie text from Hebrews iv., 14-16, and laying special stress upon the 15th verse: "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted aa we are, yet without sin." The Sinlesß Christ was announced by Dr. Thomson as the topic of his dis course, and he began by saying tbat a mistake ia not a sin, neither can unbe lief be recognized by thinking people as a sin any more than belief can be reck oned as a virtue. We have to believe aa we see and understand, and the speaker had no sympathy with people who called others bad namea becauae they differed in belief. We are responsible for the way in which we examine truth. In the world unseen the realm of evil may be enlarged. The savage .does not know the sins we know, and we don't know the sins the angels may be aware of. What is sin? The man who does what he knowa ia wrong is a Binner. That ia the pith of the answer iv Birnple language. Sin is committed in three forma: Firat, against the Deity; second, againßtotner people, and third, against ourselves. Tbe latter form contains the eecret of the world's progress. When we learn not only to do our duty to God and to others, but also to ourselves, such re forms and improvements will ensue as were never dreamed of. The man who does not educate his facultiea is sinning against God. We must protect our selves. The fact ia we submit to wrong, we don't protest against evil doing and that'a why we have boodlers in politics, hypocrites in tbe pulpit and tims-servers in our Bchoola. Christ's temptation was real; hie pas sion, pride and ambition were all ap pealed to. There mußt have been some thing in him that responded to the temptation ; if he waa omnipotent, then hia temptation waa a sham. He waa here aa a man, with a man'a powers, and divested of supernatural helps, he met the tempter and slew him. This is our encouragement. Some people speak of sin as if it were a necessity of human life, and, indeed, they have many facts to back them up; but no power, can make me transgress the laws of my con acience. Did you ever commit a sin that you were forced to commit? No. People used to Bay, though it ia not said so much now, "Satan made me do it," but the more mod«rn excuse is the law of heredity, by which we blame our wrongdoing on our ancestors. These evil tendencies may make life hard and oppressive Bometimes, but they alford no excuse whatever for wrongdoing. Cbriat aa a representative of con-. science proved that man can live with out sin. Why do ethical societies shut out the man who was the true head, who was the doer as well as the teacher? Conacience haa a right to be angry. Christ called Hia opponents vipers and other unpleasant names with bitter, blaating emphasis. If one of His min isters were to epeak so plainly in this day he would be forced to change his quarters. In the Old Testament human nature is represented as a corrupt thing but Jeeue never said so, and if the fall of Adam was an important thing He would have mentioned it. Referring rapidly to the Hindoo dreams of metempsychosis, the Chal dean watch towers, the pyramids built by the Egyptian dreamers and the Eleußinian mysteries, the speaker said that he waß thoroughly acquainted with the fight against the miracles and the resurrection made by the Dutch and German schoole and by their imitators in France, England and America. In epite of all the argument to the contrary the reverend doctor believed that man could got the strength of heaven into his life to do these, tilings, and if they are not true, then Christianity iB the moat gigantic falsehood ever palmed upon the earth. On the one side we have a following of teacbera, narrow, bigoted, heartless, arrogant and dogmatic, and on the other the select number who havo coined the phrase of The Higher Criti ciem, an expression that in itself is full of arrogant conceit. These people are as full of asaumptionas the others. Lord pity their shallowness 1 We have the perfect religion and the perfoct character to go with that reli gion. What more do we need ? "My strength !s ai the strength of ten, Because my life is pure." The speaker closed with an eloquent peroration. The subject for next Sunday morning is The Mantle of Elijah.

THB NATURAL WONUIKS OF THE SUI'HKSTITIOUS MOUNTAINS. A Begion Which the Indian* Avoid Through Fear of the Peculiar Sy enite Figures Which Are Found There* "Among the natural wonders of the great southwest are tbe Superstitious mountains, which loom up red and rose ate from the arid desert to the east of the Salt river valley," said Ben Rogers, an old cattle-man of Tempe, last night at the American Exchange, Bays the San Francisco Examiner. "These mountains are so carious that as long as Arizona has been settled the Indianß would have nothing to do with them. In consequence they are full of deer, ibex, bear and other wild game. It is tough work getting up in them, however, and because of this it is a nat ural fortress for wild game. They are as Bafe in these mountains as were the cliff dwellers of an age long past. "Their dwellings may be seen far up on the Bides of the almost perpendicular waits to this day. How they got up and down is a mystery. Enough iB known of them, however, to show that they were little men and women, and could probably scale the surfaces of the rocks like squirrels. They were pygmies, there is no doubt about that. "Rising out of the level surface of the desert, like the pyramids of Egypt, are the Superstitious mountains. They reach a total height from the valley of from 3000 to 3500 feet, and probably their height above the sea is from 4000 to 0900 feet. There are no foothills lead ing up to them whatever. On one side iB a valley as level as a billiard table, and on the other these lofty mountaina rise. There are many theories for thia, but no certain solution. "On the crest of this unique range, and in full view in|the rarefied atmos phere for an immense distance from the plain, are hundreds of queer figures, representing men in all attitudes. When you look first you are cure they are men, and when you turn your aston ished gaze again to them you are as ab solutely certain of it as you can be of anything. "Ihey reprosent ball-throwers, out looks, mere-viewers of thecountry round about, men recumbent and contemplat ive, others starting on a foot race aud in every conceivable posture and position. They are not real flesh and blood men, however —nothing but stone syenite— yet nothing can convince the Indians, and some white men that they are not genuine. Ihey say they are real mortals turned to stone, petrified by the pecul iar condition of the air on the mountains. "Ibis belief has grown out of an Apache legend, handed down for I don't know how many years. They have it that an ancient chief, who had learned of the carious character of the Super stitious mountains, forbade any of his people to go there. A large band, how ever, one day discovered a way to get in by a precipitous route, and finally reached the top. It resulted as the chief had said, and they never got down alive. "Now you can induce an Indian to brave all the Gila monsters and rattle snakes of the plain, and there are many ot them in placeß, but you can't induce him to try and scale that perpendicular range. He is satisfied to let the ancient abodes of the mysterious pygmies, and the crests where the petrified men are, alone, even though the mountains about are full of ibex and other game. "It is a fine field for the naturalist and the antiquarian, for if they do not be lieve in the petrified men, they will at" least learn much of tbe pygmy cliff d wellers, and tbe game that roams un molested near at hand. i "Talking of the syenite men and the other strange features in connection with them I mux-, not forget to mention the carious alkali pots or geysers. I'heso are near Stein's pass, the birthplace of the Apaches, and it ia a fitting place for them, too. Whenever I have looked at this grim and ghastly region I have not wondered that the Apaches are savage. "In the distance the country ia aa white (but for some opal-like spots) as though melted lard had been poured over it. It is aa white aa snow and hard aa plaster. It ie almost aa Blippery, too, aa glaes. There are no flour-like aplotchea anywhere, and the wind does not carry the curious whiteneaa into the air. All tbat ia to be seen is alkali and its effect. The reaervoir-like placee in the dazzling white are actual reservoira of alkali water. Some of them are but aa large aa a bucket in diameter, while othera are 30 or 40 feet across. "I have strung 100 feet of riataa to gether and dropped it in and found no bottom. Neither cattle nor horeea nor any living thing, ao far as I know, will ever touch thiß water. They dare not, for a mouthful of it would kill. About the alkali pota and large reservoirs and scattered over the lava rocks, hot in the blazing sun, are the different forms of the cactus, and among all at times may be seen mottled reptilea. crawling lazily in the heat. Nobody will forget it and no one will wonder at the peculiar character of the Apaches when this wild and uncanny spot is seen." Best remedy for sprains and pains. Mr. J. M. Spring. Benninge, p.

Griffin, the well-known trot ting horse driver, leaves here today for the east, the name of his new employer being temporarily a secret. He has never had a fair chance here, all his horses being either old cripples or else so fat that the season was over before he got them worked down to a race. He now goes to a place where he has about 20 horses, all of mature ages; and from what he has done in thiß state during former seasons, the horse reporter of the Herald believes he will make a very different showing from what he did here. The following ie a list of horses to wbich he has given records in this state: Little A1bert....2:17K Edwin 0„ (p)...2:15 (Now reduced 10« Little Hope (p) .2:10% Maud 2 23 Ned Locke 2:24 Nimrod 2:30 Bedwood 2:2l'i Fearl 2:229 Mandn 2;24><£ Pach Allen ...2:29!£ Holly 2:28^ Dr. Swllt 2:13 The best of all these is Little Albert, a horse that would have won the great Charter Oak puree ($10,000) of 1881 had the race been properly judged. They declared a heat a dead one in which he was about 20 inches ahead, and he won two other heats in the race without the slightest room for a quibble. A kodak photograph of the so-called dead beat waa furnished the judges by a disinter ested spectator, showing that Albert was plainly in front of Nightingale, but the judges rejected it because it was not of ficial. Griffin broke this horse and handled him in every race he trotted prior to his. going east. It is to be hoped that he will handle him in hia next campaign. SENATOR-ELECT WHITE. His Departure for Washington Delayed for a Time. United States Senator-elect Stephen M. White had intended to leave for Waßhington today at sp. m. over the Santa Fe. He has, however, been forced to change his plans aud postpone the date of hia departure for several days at least, owing to the illness of his young est child and the immense pressure of business upon him. When the senator doeß leave he will not return again until about the Bth of April. The Benate will be convened in extra session on March 4th to confirm the nominations for the cabinet and snch other ollices as the president desires to fill immediately. The senate remains in session then as long as the president desires. An endeavor was made last evening to secure an expression from Senator White as to what he thought of the se lection of Judge Walter Q. Gresham by Mr. Cleveland as his secretary of state. The senator very promptly refused to give any opinion, upon tbe ground tbat he would be called upon to pass upon this selection in an executive session of the senate. This being the case, it would be ill-advised for him to at this day talk about tbe matter for the news papers. He absolutely refused to talk about it. Unserving Pr»i«e.
