YESTERDAY IN THE CHURCHES.
The Beginning of the Vincent Crusade Against Sin. Hiss Chambers' Address at the Meet ing of the Y. W. C. A. Ksanrallat Frank L. Smith Mi,1.1. a Successful Heating at tha V. H. O. A. All natnre seemed to plan to make yeßterday a perfect day to add to the happiness of the Vincent religious cru aade. The Sunday services in con junction with the religious revival be ing carried on at Vincent M. K. church, on Twenty-ninth street, near Main, be gan at 9 a. m. The first meeting was the workers' conference, led by Rev. F. V- Fish in the Kpwortb League room of the church. It was a service of song and prayer, with reports from the per sonal workers, as to the past week's work, its encouragement nnd dißconr agements. Interesting discussions took place on practical working plans. At 10 o'clock tbe workers separated and three prayer meetings were carried on. A young ladies meeting was held at lite parsonage, led by Mrs. Birdsall. A junior league service was held in the church, conducted by Misa Strong. The young men's meeting occupied the Kp wortb League room. John Hapbick, of I'aeadenn ied here and an address given by Captain Rnesell, of the Fourteenth Company Boy's Brigade of San Fran cisco. These meetings were a fitting prelude to the preaching service of the morning. The principal service of the morning began at 11 o'clock. Tbe music was a apecial feature. A choir of twenty voices, including such singers as Mr. Frank Robinson and Mrs. I'riest-MoQ'att led in the singing. Tbe opening psalm was repeated in concert by pastor and people, all standing. An earnest prayer was offeied by Rev. Fisher. "All I Give to Jesus," was beautifully ren dered aa a duet by Mrß. Moffatt and Mr. Robinson. Tbe congregation Bang "The Wondrous etory." Fourteen per sons were received into tbe fellowship of St. Vincent church by the pastor and one baptism took place. Mrs. Moffatt sang in ber inimitable manner the solo '•The Lord Is My Shepherd." Rev. F. V. Fisher preached from the subject: How 1 May Know That I Am a Christian. The Bible texts he chose were: "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the Son of (rod."—i John v, 13; aud "The spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are tbe children of God."—Romans viii, 16. A Bynopsia of the sermon is here given: There are two kinds of knowledge, that which ia important and that which is not. It ia an interesting fact to know tbat the Vigilant is a swift yacht, but if a person wants to go on an ocean voyage, tbe thing he wants to know first ie whether tbat vessel is cafe. Applying this to tbe spiritual life, the speaker asked: "Are we safe for eternity ?" Be fore we study text-books and seek other knowledge, this question should be set tled. May we know that we are saved? The iVj! "". -.rbyterian -iottrine Baid no; that it was presuming on God to think Methodism holds that we may know that we are saved, if we accept Him in our hearts and make a covenant to terve Him, we are Christians. There ib no difference in our emotional feelings. The Bible does not promise ecstatic emo'ion, hut if we truly love Him, we will feel like exclaiming "Abba Father." Love is the great part oi life, Tell me what you love and 1 will tell you somewhat of your character. If we are Christiana our spirit testifies to thiß fact; we bear tksa frnira ol the spirit in our daily lives. Apply these tests to your heart and settle this great ques tion of betng a Christian. A brief after service for testimonies w-is held, to which a great many re nmiued. EVENING SERVICES. In«pired by the blossings of tbe day, a ntimher of yonng people gathered in the Kjiworth league room at ti ::?0 p.m. to a voting people's masß meeting, under the direction of the Kpworth League.

Second, HoUenbeen hotel. bid. II a person doubts the ■ ord of God tie is a sinner. The capital c.ime in the sight of God is the rejection of Jesus Christ. When perdition stretched out under you and the wrath of God hung over you then Jcsub stepped in and suf fered your punishment. If you have rejected salvation you're the meanest, most contemptible sinner on earth. If you do refnre salvation, death is tho result. Mm is the cause of destruction in this world. It will also_ canee death in another world. The*day of His wrath will come and it will be terrible if you are a sinner. Men may punish your body but they cannot touch your soul; but God deals, with the soul nnd you cannot stand before the greatjudge in [lie just wrath. This is s sad picture, but there is hops, God gives eternal life through 11 in infinite mercy. Following the sermon ?drs. Moffatt tenderly sang "Almoßt l'erituaded." The day's work was cloeed with an after meeting anil altarservice. This religious crusade is being made in a thorough nnd systematic manner. Yesterday ntternoon the Christian workers ol the church made a house to house canvass in the district surround ing tbe church, inviting all to come to the meetings. A banner is suspended across Main street at Twenty-ninth, an nouncing the "Yiucent M. K. church crneado meetings every evening." It serves as an invitation to saint and sin ner who may pass that way to receive religious blessing. Key. 11. H. Graves of Ventura will speak every evening this week at the crusade meetings. Next Tuesday after noon a school children's mass meeting will be held at :i:.'so o'clock. I). C. Cook, the great Sunday Bchool worker, will address n mothers' meeting on Wednesday afternoon. At University M. E. church Sunday morning Key. Dr. A. C. Williams, the pastor, preached a fine dißcourße on the subject of justification by faith. After the service five peraons were received into the church by letter. Perils of Immigration. Rev. A. 0. Smithers preached the first of a Beries of Sunday evening sermons on Our Perils last night. His subject was The Perils of Unrestricted Immigration. Hia sermon waa preceded by a half hour praise service at which Miss Ethel Graham and Mrs. Burton sang some beautiful solos. Tbe aermon dealt with the fact that we are a composite nation, having come from the various countries of the earth. In order for self-protection we must hedge ourselves about with laws, keep ing out the lower and baser class of im migrants who are now seeking entrance into our gates. It is the character of the immigrants that make theiu peril ous to our country. Many of them are illiterate. Education and intelligence are tbe only safeguards of a republican form of government. If wa would pre serve our country we must not receive this class of immigrants. Many immi giants know nothing of the genius of our country, having been reared under monarchies, and too often become ene mies to our republic. A large propor tion of our critniuals and saloonists come from the foreign element that is flooding thiß country. Most of the anar chists and dynamiters that threaten our safety are men who have been reared under the despotic governments of the old world. The demoralizing influence of this class of our population iB most apparent Education and morality are insufficient to civilize many foreigners. In tbe malter of religion most immi grants of the lower clase are either skeptics and etheists, or they cling to a church whose spirit and genius are con trary to the best interests of our gov ernment. The only aafpguard, the only course left for patriotic citizens is to restrict immigration to that class tlmt can be molded in citizens in this great repub lic, to persons who will be in sympathy with our great effort at Eelf government. As a Christian nation God lias laid upon us the obligation to christianize und save this vast horde of people that are thronging our gates. Perhaps God hat plans for this country that we can never estimate or understand. We can only aid in this great work by faithfully discharging our duty to God and man as earnest Christian citizens. The Young Women's Association. The usually large attended meeting of the Young Women's Christian asso ciation was opened with two selections by the Btring orchestra. A vocal trio from the First Presbyterian church nlso assisted during the song bervice. The songs snug were appropriate to the sub ject, The I'romises of tiod. Miss Jessie Chambers lead reading as Bible lewon part of I'salm ;>7. She eaid: "It is Key. W. H. Temple of Boston, I think, who compares God's promises to pre cious stones, and save, in substance, we wonld have the bright Hash of the dia mond, the ruddy glare of the ruby, the purple nlow ol the atnethyct, the bright gieen of the emerald, the variegated hues of the hyacinth and others. These wonld aimost dazzle us with their splen dor, end yet the tested promises that He brim; today, glowing iv the light of our Bpititual experience are much more biilliant." Sho further Batu: " They tell us there nre ,12,000 promisee with a condition to each one." Alter giving a number of precious promises with the Condition to each one Bhe Baid: "Sj i many are stripped of power because they do not meet tho condition, ho often wo place persons and things be tween ua nnd Christ co we have not tbo union with Christ and therefore not the power. 1 hope we will know thete promises are for every one of üb, 'My promises are yea. aud amen to everyone tbat believeth.'" After Bhort prayer by Mrs. Neftleton and Mies Hau3er a very large number of ■ promisee were given by those present. Miaa Moree eaid Bhe hoped each one I would go home and search and prove j these promises. Ifjoudo not receive a blessing it is because you nre shutting yourself up to G.'d. Ho gruciouslv leads ub with His hand. It is our privilege to live in a higher and better life and beauty that is in Christ. 'Ihe meeting closed with a circle pray er, with quotations from Psalms.

Tbo rooms at theosophical headquar ters were crowded last evening with an attentive audience, which listened to a very interesting lecture upon "Theos ophy and Ethics," delivered by Mr. H. A. Gibson. The speaker gave a recount of the gross conceptions of deity or Jehova as embodied in the Old Testament, and said that the moral acceptation of a per sonal God who claimed all the weak LOS ANGELES HERALD* MONUAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 1», 1893 nesses of undeveloped human natnre, such as Mirer, jealousy, revenge and favoritism, was finding a fuller expres sion among mankind today in applied ethics than did the influence and teach ings established by the gentle Nazarine, however mucb the ministry wonld deny the fsct. Although modern orthodoxy would pride itself upon its etliica, neverthe less it heirs the mark of individualism and selfiehnees ; it holds out to man the premium of a glittering, harp-playing and materialistic heaven as an incentive for man's right action. Heaven be comes a commerce wherein the ooul ia to receive its selfish reward for having done works of charity and righteous ness. "Another falacy, of our western ethics is tbe idea of 'holy days.' Six days of the week we connive to obtain advantage of each other in our daily relatione, 'shile on the seventh day we praise the lord for having given ub our daily bread. There are no holy days to be set apart; all days are holy ; the sun giveth light and warmth nnd life doth thrill upon one day as upon another. The Brah mins consecrate their daily labors to Brahm and holiness, and if Christian people dared patern after these heathen (miscalled), misery and vice would soon be on the decline. "Ob, if men knew and were implic tly taught that a) the/ sow. so ehall they reap; that tbis law of Karma ob tains throughout cosmas, eternally re storing effects to their causes, we again would find the burdens of mankind be coming lifted." Mr. Gibson made some very pointed remarks upon the sex question as re lated to ethics, which called forth hearty applause ard elicited many questions from the audience. Smith, the Evangelist. At the V. M. C. A. hall yesterday aft ernoon an unusually large number of men assembled to hear Frank L. Smith, the evangelist, who begina a series of meetings for young men. The evangel ist took for his text, "Son, give me thine heart," and as he sf oke of what the Sa vior of mankind had given for fallen humanity and the necessity of lit ing a Christian life now He held his large audience spellbound. Hia earnestness, eloquence and simplicity of presenting the practical gospel truths won the ad miration of all, and when tbe invitation ! was given for seekers to manifest their : desire to live a Chriatian life, scores rose to their feet. I Mrs. M. E. Aver sang two solos very impressively, nnd the Y. M. 0. A. male ! quartette gave two selections in an ef fective manner. Meetings will be held every evening thie week at 7 :'M o'clock in Y. M. 0. A. hail, to which all men are coadially in vited. LIGHT UP THE TOWER, A .NEEDED IMPROVEMENT AT THE COUATY COURT' HOUSE. Electric Light* Whtch Would Be Seen Far and Wld«—A Clock Which Would Tell tho Time, at Night. Los Angeles ha 9 a tower on the county courthouse. There is also a clock in the courthouse tower. The diala are whoppers, being seven or eight feet in diameter. Daring the day the tower looms np sa one of the noblest structures in Southern California, and one can tell tbe time o' day from almost any part of the city. Standing on an eminence as the court house does, the lofty tower is the most striking object in the city, and such is the location tbat it meets the eye wher ever one goes, to the uttermost limits of the city and even beyond them. But when night comes the tower melts into the night and is swallowed up in the darknese. From their lofty perch the big hands on the dials count the silent hours to the Btars, bnt not to the people of the city. To put electric lighta in the tower would be a matter of trifling expense, end why it has not be9n done iB a oub ject of wonderment. It is not very often that a city has Biich a vantage ground for Bending out a bea con light, and not to do so is parsimony, not economy. Of course there are a good many be lated wanderers at night who would be distracted by the illumination and see half a dozen dials, where one would nerve its purpose, but the cumulative effect would bo good, even in such caseß. There are foggy nights when even the electric raya behind the dials would be dimmed, but such nights are compara tively few. On the great majority of nightß the little light shining out from the tower would be seen far and wide. in nearly every city where there are clocks in high places they are lighted up at nigbt, and the people of those cities would raise a perpendicular kick if the lights were put out. Once light up the courthouse tower and it will be n permanent improve ment which supervisorial boards will not neglect. 'J he subject was spoken of long ago by the supervisors when the courthouse was nnder construction, but it was put by as somothing that could be taken up et any time. There ;a no time like the present, has often been held up as a copy book aphorism, bnt in tbis case it is all right. Each member of the board of super visor would like to go down to posterity aa throwing as much light npon county afl'aira aa possible, and the lighting of the courthouse tower is a subject which they might very readily take up and carry forward to a bright conclusion.

WHIST PREVAILS OVER POKER The Game ot Science Snperced intr the (iitine of Chance. Log Angeles Not, Much of a Place for Plunjrcrs. What Fokar Flaying There la la fo* Small Slakes—One Faro Game Ilun ntng for (Inn I'atron— The Losses and Winning* Very biuall. A man with an imaginative turn of mind waß unburdening himself, the other day, to a small crowd of awe struck auditors, of n story to the effect that he had just left a friend who had dropped $2500 at poker in one after noon. A well-known sport who knows the rope» thoroughly and is a bit of a poker player himself, dropped in at the con clusion of the speaker's story and re marked: "Come off. I'd like to Bee the place in this town where a man conld lose $2500 in a year." And the Bport waa pretty nearly right. Loa Angeles contains, probably, ns little of tbe gambling element &c any town in the west. There is, it is true, a little poker piaying occasionally in the rear of cigar stores, but no one ever suffers, unless it is some verdant youth, who bears the "sucker's" insignia in his face. As a rule the poker players who fre quent the cigar etoreß have frequented them for years. They know one anoth er's play, and if $40 changes hands in a day the habitues of the place consider it a large sum. Aaaurttime ago it was rumored on the Btr eet and in poker rooms that a welt known young man of this city had loat $25,000 at poker at a single Bitting. To those who know the rumor appeared ridiculous, but a morning paper printed tbe statement and swallowed the etory. Upon investigation it waa foiud that in five yeare the young man had costhiß father $25,000. Some of this amount was probably comprised in poker lorees, but the amount, as stated, covered the expenditure of five years. And the above story illustrates tho fact that most of the gambling done in Los Angeles is done in conversation. There is probably more whist being played at present than any other game, and in more than one establishment tbe game of chance has had to give away to the game of science. Of course thia barß the draw down for the house, but they make their profit from the cigars smoked, for the whist players, as a rule, consume an enormous quantity of to bacco. It m rumored that a faro gamo is con ducted not very far from Spring street, and rumor lias it that it is conducted with ttie sole idea of accommodating a gentleman of the Hebrew variety, who it is eaid pays pretty highly for the privilege of being the lone bucker of the noble game of chance. Take it all around, and with the ex ception ol tbe Chinese quarter, Los Angeles is decidedly not a gambler's town.
