SOME WAYS OF THANKSGIVING.
The Union Services at the First Congregational Church. The Veterans at the Soldiers' Home KDjoy Their Turkey. The Salvation Ariuy Services—Tha Day cm Mi. Koho— Key. Smither Gives Borne Advloe to Hia Auditors. The First Presbyterian, Immanuel Presbyterian, First Baptist, Temple Btreet Christian, First Congregational, Second United Presbyterian and the English Lutheran churches held union thanksgiving services at the First Con gregational church yesterday at 11 a. m. After some good music and the usual preliminary services, Key, A.O. Smither, pastor of the Temple Btreet Christian church, delivered an instructive and elo quent discourse, speaking substantially as follows: It is fitting tbat we abould observe a national thanksgiving day, (or it is in harmony with the teaching ol Christ. It is, furthermore, proper that it should be observed at this session of the year, when our crops are harvested and our granaries are fall. It is fitting, too, that we should be willing to give reasons for our thankiulness. We are a Christian nation, our coun try was discovered by a Christian ex plorer and settled by those in whose bosoms flowed the Christian spirit. Twice our country has been submerged in blood in defense oi liberty and human rights. We as a people furthermore beliove that merit—worth—should be rewarded rather than money or birth, hence we have promoted to positions ol trust and honor tboee who have arisen from the humblest places in life. Again we have enjoyed great material prosperity. A century ago we were weak, a small band of 13 states on the bleak Atlantic coast. Today we are a mighty nation stretching from ocean to ocean,* from north to south, and have developed wonderful agricultural re sources. Our country is capable of pro ducing food for tbe race. In manufact uring products we are leading the world. We have the fuel, the material and the genius necessary to make manufactur ing a success. Our mining facilities are wonderful. The earth is disgorging her riches to us. We have become a potent factor in the world's commerce.' Our panic is but a merited rebuke for our eager speculative spirit. In spiritual matters we have much for which to be thankful. Our churches have never been more energetic than at present. Temples of worship are being rapidly constructed. Missionary work is growing among our people. Then we have no state church and menacing hand to binder religious freedom and growths. Every man can dwell under bis own vine and fig tree fn a religious as well as political sense. We have the utmost freedom among all religious bodies and yet our churches are rapidly growing in unity ol spirit and har mony of action.

No greater evidence could be shown of the decadence ol religions bigotry and cant and intolerance than the world's parliament of religion, which works an epoch in religious | history. While there are many reasons for re joicing and thanksgiving, there are threatening dangers that should pro duce eober thought and serious re flection. Here is unrestricted immigra tion, like the barbarian hordes that poured into Rome, they are thundering at our gates seeking admission. Now are our cities becoming hotbeds of vice, socialism, anarchism and crime, and into them like rivers into the sea, our population is flowing. Here iB the saloon, tbe greatest oi all modern vices, that is feeding upon the vitals of society and is an enemy of our political life, of morality, Christianity, and everything that is good; what shall stay its ruinous ravages? Here is the conflict between capital and labor. Our millionaires are hoarding up their money; our laboring classes aie getting poorer and more wretched. They are crying for work and their children are crying ior bread. These and many other dangers threaten our country's prosperity, and presage immediate dangers. Eternal vigilance is tbe price of lib erty, and while we are revelling in the luxuries of the present we need to pre pare for the dangers that threaten our future. Where can we find security from these dangers? Only at the source of our power as a nation. Tbat is in the nature and character of our voters. We need a higher standard ol citizenship; we need restrictions upon the ballot box. Thirty years ago tbe ballot was put into tbe hands ol the poor, ignorant colored people at the time of their re lease from slavery. They were utterly unprepared for this sacred privilege. Tbe south, yea the entire nation, has suffered tbe evil consequences of thin great mistake. Today we are putting this lame privilege into the hands of another class who are equally unpre pared for it. I men the lower classes of our foreign immigrants. As in the for mer instance, so in this, we shall con tinue to suffer for it, in fact are already losing much of our national vigor. We need a restriction rather than extension of the right of suffrage. Ido not think extension of suffrage to the women will be a panacea for all human ills. It will have a tendency to complicate matters rather than to remove dangers. We should require a longer period of resi dence in our country at the hands of our foreign population, - We need an educational test as well. Intelligence of its citizsus is the only safety of a republic. To ignore this is suicidal. Sell protection demands this. Then we should teach our children the Knglish language. No other tongue is in touch with the peculiar genins of our natipn. To establish foreign settlements on American soil iB dangerous. We need to train up our children in loyalty to our country rather than in allegiance to any foreign church, whose entire history is contrary to our spirit of free dom. Then, as loyal, patriotic Americans let us evangelize tbe world; let us bring men to the standard ol the cross of Christ and we may expect noble citizen ship. With such wonderful resources bb we have; with such a grand character of citizenship; with such a noble language and people the future lures us to nobler deeds, to higher aspirations, to grander achievements and promises that along tbe highway of Time we shall outstrip all other nations in our struggle for LOS ANGELES IIERALD- FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER I. 1893. leadership, for national glory aod undy ing greatness. THANKSGIVING ON ECHO MOUNTAIN. Two crowueJ carloads of happy ex cur- Zionists yesterday morning glided over the winding electric road that penetrates Rubio caflon. The mellow autumn sun shine bathed the mountains and the valleys in a flood of golden splendor. Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Eraser and son Kennelte from Elyria, Ohio, registered at the Echo Mountain Chlet, expecting to return on next train, but the alluring scenes constrained them to engage rooms for a day or twei. They are stop ping for tbe winter at the Crown Villa in Pasadena. Their friends in Elyria, Cleveland Chicago will follow in a few weeks. Eagle Rock was well represented in Lubio can yon by .1. Hickson, M. A. Hickson, James L. R. Hickson, Misses Olive and Mabel Hickson and Mrs. A. Orchard. Tbey lunched at the foot of Malehaha falls. Gladys L. Barber, of Chicago, rifled the mountain sides of some fine speci mens of the scarlet-stemmed mansanitas, and other interesting botanical forms. A. P. West, cashier of the Colombia Savings Bank, escorted a party of eastern and Los Angeles ladies over tbe bridle road to tbe summit of mount Lowe, from whence tbey obtained superb views of snowy mountain ranges to tbe north and east. Robert Noble Golding and Mrs. John H. Golding registered from New York City, and Wro. Flipping hailed from Bournemouth, England. Mr. and Mrs. James Ashton are from the great plains of the northwest, their home being in Nebraska City. Prof. Lowe is having an important annex added to the Swiss Chalet. It will be a two-story structure immedi ately over the structure which connects the diningroom with the kitchen. It will contain a comfortable music parlor on the lower floor and several additional sleeping rooms above. AT THE SOLDIERS' HOME. Thanksgiving day was celebrated quietly at the Soldiers' home, no es pecial festivities having been arranged. In the morning Dr. Keating and Sena tor Seymour of Sau Bernardino ad dressed an audience of veterans in as sembly hall. Sharp at 12 o'clock the home band, stationed on the balcony above tbe entrance to the dining hall, struck np a tune, and at 12:15, at the sound of the dinner bell, 546 hungry men in blue surged into the dining room. This room contains 39 tables, each table seating 14 men. In 30 min utes tbe room was cleared, the tables washed and relaid, and at 12:45 the bell announced that all was in readiness for the eecond table, wbon 338 men were served. Tbe bill of fare was: Turkey, with dressing; cranberry sauce; sweet potatoes; graham bread; tea; apple pie. Nine hundred pounds of turkey had been provided, 600 pies, 300 loaves of bread and 15 pounds of tea were con sumed. At the hospital the same bill of fare was served. In the evening the home amateur troupe announced a minstrel perform ance to be given in Assembly ball. Major Thornton entertained Dr. Keat ing, medical director of the G. A. R., and Senator E, C. Seymour, both of San Bernardino, at dinner. Gov. Charles Treichel spent the day at home with his family. Dr. H. E. Haßse spent the day driving his family to Cahuenga pass. There are now 84 patients in the hos pital, and the Keeley cure classes have graduated 75 men from this home alone. tue y. w. c. A. "Ihe Young Woman's Christian as sociation, at home, Thanksgiving day, from 2 to 5 o'clock, 212 South Broad way." To the thousand invitations reading like the foregoing a goodly number of the members and friends of the associ ation responded yesterday. Tne pleas ant rooms in the Crocker were made more spacious by the kindly loan of Dr. Weston's rooms, and all were profusely decorated with smilax, rones and chrys anthemums. The committee of reception included Misses Tatham. Keyset', Hull, Oliver, Croukhite and Myers, Many pastors of the city churches paid their respects to the Y. W. C. A. and offered congratulations that this work waa bringing into close acquaint ance the young women from all denom inationa, which would surely result in broader and more effect work. Since the opening of tbe rooms every effort has been made to obtain the names and addresses of young ladies in Los Angeles, and tbat the list is not more complete must be the apology the association has to offer to any young woman who might think she had been neglected. This may be taken ac a sug gestion tbat every young woman who desires to associate herself with tbe work should send in her addresß and the addresses of friends. Delightful music was furnished by the string quartette of the association, and there was a violin quartette by Misa Pieraon and a violin duet by Miss Pier aon and Miaa Fern West. THE SALVATIONISTS. The national Salvation Army specials' Mr. and Mra. Geo. Montgomery of San Franciaco, conducted Thanksgiving ser vices in the army hall at 3 o'clock yes terday afternoon. The building waß crowded to its lulleet capacity and a rousing meeting was held. Mr. Mont gomery is a wealthy San Francisco mer chant and tbe only millionaire belong ing to the Salvation army. Mrs. Montgomery is a charming speaker and showed such great earnest ness in her work that she held tbe audience spell-bound during her entire address. Mr. Montgomery and a Mr. Campbell also gave brief addresses. A collection amounting to $21.95 waa taken for establishing a borne for invalid Salvation Army officers Bulula, near San Francisco. The specials will hold another meeting in Music hall, Decem ber 3rd. Notice to Buaineas Houses. We are now in press with tbe eecond bi-annual edition of tbe Loa Angeles Street and Buaineas Directory.

SOWERKROWT. M Ift p M H S HOW ABOUT THIS? IS THE CITY COUNCIL OR II KALT!I OFFICER TO BLAMKV A Peculiar State ot Affairs at the South Hayes-street School, Kast Loi An geles—A Stagnant Cesspool Breeding Bleknesa. Residents on South Hayes street, East Los Angeles, are justly up in arms at the mieerable etate of affairs bb to the sewerage on their street, and the vile hole at the school house. It ap pears about 14 months ago a petition was presented to the city council by property owners of South Haves street between Downey avenue and Mozart street, asking that a sewer be con structed on the Btreet, between the streets referred to. The council recognized the request— the Bewer committee reporting favor ably, everything went serenely along until it was time to advertise for bids, when suddenly the entire matter was dropped like a hot potato, for reasons best known to the city authorities. The property owners then aeked the health officer to investigate the sanitary condition of the Hayes street school house. About four months ago he did bo, and reported that it waa necessary that a newer should be built at the school house at once, and also on Hayes Btreet between Mozart and Downey ave nue. Tbe report of the health officer was duly presented to the council about June or July, and there the matter rested. Within one month there have been about fifteen cases of Bicknesß in the neighborhood of the school bouse, half of whom are children. One child who attended the school is now confined to his residence, next to the school house, ! Buffering with gastric fever. Another ; scholar living near by has typhoid fever, | and the attending physician in both cases reports that their illness is dt;e to the sanitary condition of the present cesspool at the school, which ie built in tbe yard adjoining tbe school house, and has no run-off. The water does not percolate into the ground, for the reason that the surface water comes up to the point where it was dug. Consequently there is a constant stagnant cesspool, covered only by about one foot of dirt, j with planks laid across the top. This iB a matter that should be at tended to at once. Now, where does the fault lie; is it with the council or the health officer? It seems tbe latter should have seen that the recommenda tion made by him some four months ago should be acted upon favorably by tbe city council at once, or there will be a regular epidemic in the neighborhood.
