SOME OF YESTERDAY'S SERMONS.
V. W. C. A. Hold Services [ at the First Methodist. pher Adam Preaches at the Cathedral. itSr. IV. t llnwmaii <>r the Chnrch of thjs I New Stra Ulsouursei Upon tba Weakness and Power of Ohrlstiaulty. IB The gospel meeting of the Y. W. 0. Hnras held in tbe First M. K. church BJfterday and was an occasion of rare HByment, the speaking aud singing Bring by the Key. George Hubert Cairns. ■Bie subject was "Ruth the Moah 'TeSß,'' and the sciptural reading from X book of Huth waa by Mre. 'A. D. Bjhus, president of the association. Hiss Morse, general secretary, intro- WSjed Mr. Cairns, wbo sang "Believe, Od Keep On Believing." Then, after ■per, be eaid, "Boaz waa a type of and Ruth of the church. Ruth mßm a Moabitesß, a heathen by birth, QB afier knowing the sweetness of a Hkißtian husband aud household, never IBm to be content with the heathen It. So when Naomi urged her to stay Bh her own people ehe made reply in HKee wondrous words, 'Entreat me not Wleave thee, or to return from following ■ler theo .thy people nhall be %w people, and thy God my God . . ■Te Lord do so for me and more also, if Hgbt but death part thee and me.' It was of God's own appointing, thia Be eting of Naomi's eon and Ruth, and brought for her a miracle of honor ■ben'she chose to go with Naomi, for ■as she not by thia means introduced Itto the line of David, from wlioae houae prang the Savior of tbe world, tbia Jbrist whom we worship?" Thie and much more he apake of the eeaon of Ruth, and then he applied it to be Young Woman's Christian asaocia ian association, saying that as Ruth dung to the light when she received it md would not go back to darkness, so should young women lifted to their present position by the power of Christ ;ount it the greatest honor that could tie theirs io ehuw Him luriu to the 'world. God might have sent an angel to herald salvation, but He chose instead to use humanity. He asks young women to take Hie name, to merge all interests into His service, and leave the world's companionship for tbe sweeter one of Him. A large audience listened attentively to tbe end, and the service cioßed by singing the Doxoiogy and a benediction 'by Mr. Cairn a. Regular Bible class Monday evening. The association rooms will be open every evening during the week for all young women detained for evening work who desire to bring their lunch and eat it there. After January Ist the association will hava permanent quarters in tbe Schu macher block on Spring street. There 'will be more room to carry on this im portant work. It iB hoped that in the Cbrietmas gifts the young Indies will be remembered with anything that will help furnish the rooms and make tbem attractive. Church of the New Era. Tbe congregation in tbe morning dis * cussed usury or interest and its evil re sults. Iv the evening Prof. W. 0. Bow l man discoursed on the weakness and the power of modern christiauity. The test of its weakneee or power ie ita efficiency .in accomplishing its pucpcse. Christi anity came into the world with certain purposes. It was to bring peace on , earth; to root out evil, to scatter the i cbafl' and save tbe wheat. | It has now been extending its strength in destroying evil, in throttling tbe rob ber and redeeming this world from in iquity and sin. Wbat success baa at tended it? Those nations which have been the longest under tbe control of the church Mare the most ignorant and besotted. For a thousand yeara tho chiming of tbe church bells has mingled with the criea of tho oppreased ior a bare living. Rich ' men rendering thanks to a bountiful Creator for his gifts—gilts that repre- Sent the fleecing of the poor. ihe church is weak becauee ite ays tern of theology ia irrational. It ia logical in this way : Each part fits the other, but none of them tit common eenae. Something like the house that 1 Jack built. f Vet the church haa its strong aide. The weaknesa ia in the head, its strength ia in ita moral power. Ita power to ad ' dresa itself to the feeling, taking charge of the faith of the child; ita affectiona. The child'a mind is stuffed with all ' S'Jrts of fablea and dogmas when it ia helpless and cannot reason. ()nce those things are engrafted into < the mind, how easy it ie to control its hopes and feara. See with what inten sity this Byatem ia impressed upon the P peoplo, and we need not be surprised at : the phenomena of revivals. Every fac nlty of the mind is wrought upon to U perpetuate these doctrines—love, faith, | reverence and love of music. Muaicand I song are an immense power. Not the old raw-headed hymns of old. bnt the augar-coated, tender melodies of today. The church haa made a change of tactics to hold tbe yonng people. The time ap proaches when the bigheat moral teaeh fng will be given without the abomina tions of mythology. The Theosophists. At Blavateky hall last evening tbe Theoeophista had a crowded meeting. The audience listened with interest to a lecture on Occult Powers Latent in Man, by Dr. G. F. Mohn. The doctor dwelt, largely upon hypnotism, mee memm, the projection of the thought body and thought-transference, and treated the subject from a truly scien tific and philosophic standpoint. He said: As a basis from whence to survey the field of hypnotic and mesmeric piienomena we muat reßort to the ecien tific and eelf-evident postulate of a unit of consciousness and the Beveufold con stitution of man. By a unit ia meant a center of con sc?juaneaa, which, like the mathemati cal point, excludea from its conception all meaaurea of time and apace. Such centers are infinite in number ac poten tiallitiea; while aa potencies, actively ascending the spiral of evolution, they smbrace all degrees from the center of iouaciouaneßß present and potent in an 'atom" to that of the highest "God." The atom of the materialist is not here referred to. Thi.ik now of man aa Bevenfold in hi* lature; think of each Of theee aspectß D man aa corresponding to the seven «pacts in the universe. Think also of be highest, the seventh aspect of all, ac icing the spark of the universal spirit, spark from the universal fire In the cry center of man's being, a pulae of the eternal life. Tbink alao of the spir itual sonl in man, the vehicle of spirit, wbich, In union with spirit and the highest mind of man, forms tbe immor tal triad, which cannot perish, bnt must endure forever. And then in conjunc tion with that higher trinity in man, ia the four-fold aepect of his lower nature. Kama-Manas, tbe seat of paasion, de sires and emotione. Then we bave the next lower principle, the astral body, the counterpart of the physical; the life principles tbat animates the body and permeates the whole being; and lastly the physical body. In hypnotism and mesmerism, will, thought, imagination and concentration are moat prominent factors. Will, from a Tbeosophic point of view, ia desire in action, directed by idealion, wbicb latter again ia consciousness in action. In hypnotism as well as aa in mea merisin two things take place; first there ia a certain something which passes from the operator to tbe aubject; and eecond, the will controls the sub ject or the nervo-vital fluid, wbicb passes to him. That something referred to ia a force which ocnltism calls the " auric fluid," and ia acornetatlonof atomaon a higher plane, generated and directed by tbe po tential will. Hypnotism begins witb tbe physical nature by mechanical contrivancea; wearies, confuses, dominates and con tracts it; works through the astral to the mental plane, affecting the will, and ia an exact process of death. Meameriam worki in an opposite di rection. The will of one person works npon tbat of another, tranafera a thought to the mindatuff, and with it works down through the aatral to the physical plane. To produce all theae ofl'ecta the auric fluid of operator and eubject must vibrate in unison and be come blended before tbey can take place. Then in hypnotism tbe selfish will of the operator reigns supremely and dethrones the higher triad, replaced by his own will and mind; the subject now bae no will or mind of his own. In Mesmerism the opposite takes place; the body ia entranced, while the higher triad is set free to act. Once the aurae of the operator and enbject are blended, tbey can never be severed ; the aubject will alwaya be negative to tbe thougbtß of the operator, be they good or bad. Be careful, therefore, how you expose youraelves to these dangerous ex periments. We have daily illustrations of the potency of thought, without being pro jected by a hypnotizer, in the many suicides, murders and robberies com mitted, which, in many cases, result from the projection of the thought originated in aome troubled or evil mind. Others, weak and eusceptable, catch the vibratione, and thuß the thought becomes an epidemic. How much more potent must theae thought eff'ecta be npon tboae once hypnotized? The remarks of the doctor upon thought-transference and tbe orojection of the thonght-body were most interest ing, which our limited epace does not permit to give. Next Sunday evening Mr. F. Neu bauer will lecture on Evidence of Talents. At the Cathedral. The usual large- congregation attended high mass at the Cathedral yesterday morning. The sermon waa delivered by the Rev. Father J. Adam. It was upon the sub ject of Christ not being received or known by the Jews when he was on earth or by the people in thie age. His text waa from the 2Gth verae of the lirst chapter of the gospel of St. John: There hath stood one in tbe midat of you whom you know not. The epeaker first referred to the cus tom of eovereigna and rulere traveling incognito among tbeir people, to better facilitate tbe work before tbem and to become in touch witb tbe people. It wbb in thia manner that Jeaua Christ had chosen to come among hia people without any pomp or heraldry, and He had not been known by them. Before Chriat waa born St. Joseph and the bleaaed Mary went to Bethlehem to be lodged but the people would give them neither inn nor place to stay. So that when Christ was born it waa in a cave. It ia ao now. Jeaua Christ is willing and knocking to enter our ininda and hearts but we will not find him lodging. Some pereone protend to know Jeene Cbrißt, but they deny Him by their actions. "They profess," aays St. Paul, "that they know God, hut in their actions they deny Him." Children pro fess also to believe in Jeaus Christ, but they do not, for they dieobey their par ents. Parenta, on tbe other hand, pro fess to believe in Christ, but do not give their children a good education. The speaker referred to the puniah ment to be indicted for not believing in Jeßua Christ. The Jews would not be lieve in Him, even after tbe Father had eaid that He waa His beloved Son in Whom He waa well pleased, and after He had been declared the Lamb of God, and they Btill refused to believe, even after He had appealed to Hia miracleß forjproof. which of the modern world refused to believe in Christ. The philoaophere deny Hia spirituality, and declare Him to be merely a great man like Alexan der the Great, Plato, Aristotle or Na poleon I. As the Blessed Mary when with child was refused lodging by the Bethlemites, co the Catholic church, pregnant with Chriat, tries, aays St. Auguatine, to bring Him to the nations, but come re fuae to receive Him. In conclusion, the speaker appealed to bis hearers, urging them to open their minda and hearts and receive Jeaua Chriat, and quoted tbe words of St. John, that every spirit that confess es Jesus Christ is of God. WESTLAKE PARK. A Tremendous Tarn Out and an Ideal Day. Every man who had a nickel in hia pocket yeaterday, got ont of the city be fore high noon sounded from the town clock. Santa Monica and Redondo looked like midsummer and, aa for Weatlake park, it was never bo crowded on a spring day. There were thirty boats on the pretty little lake and none of them idle. At 2 o'clock Douglaa' band gave one of ite best selected programmes, all of which was well rendered, especially the se lection from the "Pirates of Penzance," which embraced the choicest gems of Sullivan's masterpiece. Gaily dreased women and pretty children tripped about the floweay par terres aa the joyous music rang out on the mild winter air; and as for the horaes and in the turnont, they em braced a display that would have done credit to the Bois dv Boulogne. Los Angelea apenda a good deal of money on her parka but ehe has good cauae to be proud of them. Howry & Breaee, Broadway under takers. "Independent of the trust." LOS ANGELES HERALD* MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 18. 1893. ABOUT HOLES IN THE GROUND. Another Big: Find in the Van derbilt District. Tbe Crescent District Liable to Loom Up Immensely. analog- News from Various Regions— The Needles' Reduction Works — Exchange Clippings. Vanderbilt Shaft: A ledge that, at eight feet below tbe surface, shows well defined walle, a solid vein five feet wide and one that averages about $30 from one Bide to the other, in a camp where, aa yet, no prospect bas failed, is some thing a little above the ordinary, at least. Yet thia ie what the Gold Bar Mining company can enow in its new find, of which mention waa made laat week. It is showing np better tban waa expected, and work on it will be puehed. There are a number of moat excellent features regarding this find, and one of tbe beat of them is that the strike was made at the bottom oi a gnlch. This is considered by experts as being a far bet ter indication than when the strike is made on the side or at tbe top of the hill. If thia prospect faila to improve with the depth of tbe shaft it will be the first in the camp to do so. Bnt there ia no indication now that it will fail. Crescent District. Next to Vanderbilt tbe moet widely known gold minea in this vicinity are at Crescent. Like Vanderbilt, it has suffered aetbacka that were not the fault of tbe camp, for there ia plenty of first-class ore there. But it is now coming to tbe front again, and promises to produce come excellent property in the near future. Topographically Crescent is very sim ilar to Vanderbilt, being situated on broken foothills that slope off gradually to tbe valley. The formation is aleo simi'ar to that of Vanderbilt, near the top of the ground, at leaßt wbere the vein cropa out between lodges of gueivs. Lower down, however, at about 15 feet, the formation of the foot-wall changes to cyenite. On the hanging-wall a thick layer ot porphjry lies between the wall and the vein. Among the leading claims here are the "Fourth of March," owned by J. Hen neißey and J. Gleaeon, tbe De fiance, owned by Mr. Amer and 8. Birdsell, and a group of six claims owned by the Free Gold Mining com pany, of which A. H. Stevens is super intendent. Of this latter group, which is composed of tbe Wallace, Gold Stand ard, Dooley, Manhattan, Baltimore aud the Free Gold, the Wallace is probably tbe best. At leait it is developed more than any of the others. There is a 50-foot shaft.showing a well defined vein of three and one-half ieet. The pay streak is not large, but iB rich and shows permanency. The whole vein averagea well. The vein dips about 50 degre»a ts the west. The aix claima owu?d hy the company are all good property. About 600 feet east of the Wallace, and lying parallel with it, is aituated "Fourth of March." owned by Gleason and llcnneaßey. Thia liea on tbe eaat elope of the hill, where the descent ia gradual. Tbe vein runs northeast and southwest, and pitches 50 degrees to the west. The claim is developed by means of a tunnel and a shaft. The tunnel commences at about the center of the claim and runa back into the hill for 90 feet. From tbia point it ia about 80 feet to tbe top of the ground at a per pendicular, and about 120 feet on the vein. The abaft commences 400 feet from the eouthwest end of the claim and haa been rnn down about 35 feet on the ledge. It shows a vein 10 inches at the surface and two feet at the bottom, all of which runa well. It ie probably not free-milling o.e, thongh it haa more tbe appearance of being free-milling than aome other ore in the vicinity that haa proved free. Work ia to be pushed on thia and two adjoining olaims from now on. If there is any gilt-edged property at Crescent it is the Defiance mine, owned by Amer & Birdeell. It ie on tbe aame ledge aB the Fourth of March, with one claim between, owned by Mr. Jamea. On the Defiance Mr, Amer baa sunk two 10-foot shafts, which are 300 feet apart, one being near the center and the other toward the southwest end. No drifts have been made, but a good deal of prospecting has been done. The prop erty shows up co well that Meesrs. Bun and Caae of Peoria, 111., bave offered $12,000 for it. It ia understood, however, that the owners are holding it icr a higher figure. All who have viewed thiß property are of the opinion that it ia an excellent prospect and that the pur chaser of it, unleßa he goes much higher than what has yet been offered, will get an excellent bargain. Needles Reduction Works. Needles Eye: The reduction works will coon be running once more. Meesrs. Sheridan & Fairfield are simply await ing the arrival of aome heavy belting which had to be ordered from New York, and which will be here the com«, ing week. Ac soon us it is received the mill will be prepared to handle ores. Many changes have been made in the mill by the lessees. However, the Dodge rock breaker will be retained for the present, bb will also the Bryan pul verizer and amalgamator, or Bryan roller mill, as it is commonly known. This piece of machinery ia a modifica tion of the well-known Chile mill, for the continuous wet crushing of either gold or eilver ores. The conatrnction of the mill consists of an annular mortar containing fixed segmented dies, ar ranged in the path of ita three cruahing rollers, wbicb, in the five foot mill, are 44 inches in diameter, eeven inchea face and weigh 3650 pounde each, whose axlea are fixed in them and journaled in a central revolving table attached to and driven by the belt pulley, making a direct application of power.

Used iv Millions of Homes— 40 Years the Standard foot mill is a similar arrangement of dies, but smaller rollers. Many prefer these mills to stamps for the reason that they are portable, quickly and cheaply located, require leas power and are run at leas coat tban stamp mills. The five foot mills make 30 revolutionea minute, and crush 20 to' 25 tons every 24 hou>s. Mesara. Sheridan & Fairfield are put ting in Frne vanners, believing that this method will successfully concentrate the ores of the Colorado river aection. Tbis is the only concentrator that haa atood every teat, and miners may rest content tbat tbeir ores will be properly handled. Aa buaineas increases ample facilities will be added to handle all ores sent in. To begin with there ia on the platform at least 100 tons of ore from tbe Vanderbilt diatrict, wbich will probably average $30 to the ton. Vanderbilt Shaft Notes. Tbe Gold Bar Mining company have developed sufficient water at Willow epringa to run a ten-stamp mill, and a force of men will commence the laying of the pipe immediately. The distance from the springe to Vanderbilt is three miles, and the cost of laying the pipe will be about $3000. Ferdinand Heim, George Montgom ery, chief owner in the Montgomery mine, and Mr. McArthur, superintend ent of ths Pahrump ranch, went through Vanderbilt Saturday on their way to Manvel, where tbey took the train for Blake's. Mr. Heim went to Los An geles and the others in tbe party went to Kansas City. It is understood that the Montgomery mine will probably change hands Boon. A. G. Campbell is making all arrange ments for the speedy erection of bis 10 -atamp mill immediately upon its ar rival, which will probably be very soon. The Gold Bar Mining company bave purchased about 10,000 feet of the lum ber used at tbe New York minus and are now timbering the Gold Bronze mine. Exchange Clippings. It ie reported that a rich quartz vein was discovered by a prospector named Layton, near Willow ranch, in Goose Lake valley. Tbe new discovery adjoins the Candlestick mine, and free gold can be eeen with the naked eye all through the quartz. Tbe drift mineß east of Rocklin are showing up in good shape, cays the Placer Herald. Since tbe irrigation season cloaed and water has been avail able for power, tbe Harlow mine bas started up again and it is paying big. Tbe Leahy mine, near the Harlow, is also at work and reported to be doing well. The Murray Creek mine, eaye the Calaveras Prospect, which wae recently incorporated, ia fretting in readineaa to commence crushing ore. A tive-stamp mill is all ready for work, and a Tulloch concentrator will be added in a few days. There are over 100 tone of rock on the dump which will pay well in free gold, and the aulpburets of which assay very high. Good gold diggings have recently been discovered in Bedrock canon, aaya the Kingman Mineial Wealth. Abont one mile below tbe atage station a narrow canon runs nortb at nearly a right angle to the main cafion. Up that narrow canon about one mile ia tbe placer ground. The discoverer in four daya took out $150. He took the gold to Mo jave and cold it there. The placera are about 25 miles north of Mojave. The Trinity county placers are to be worked systematically, aays the Trinity Journal. A company haa purchased large areas of land and ia constructing a ditch to provide water to work tbe gravel. When completed the ditch will cover abont 5000 acres of auriferous gravel, and the La Grange company own now, including their original purchase, 3000 acres of aome of tbe ricbeat grave! in tbe country. It is an exceedingly valuable property, certainly one of the richest in the etate. A crosscut at the bottom of a 100-foot abaft on the Norma mine, White Hills, aaya tbe Kingman Miner, hae diaclosed the richest body of ore ever diacovered in Mojave county. There ia about 18 inchea of ore that will run fully 2000 ounces per ton in silver. This ore body extends to tbe surface and it is expected that fully $100,000 will be netted by tbe owners in ita extraction. There are many other claima in White Hills tbat wonld be benefited by cross-cutting tbe walla. Pioche, Nev., is on the eve of another stampede equal to that which accurred when news of gold discoveries at Fer guson diatrict were first reported, eaya the Pioche Record.

George Stone Cut to Pieces on His Way to Chnrch. The Singular Death Occurred Near Redondo Yesterday. Sto:i« Wm Almost Deaf and Evidently Old Not Hear the Approach ing Train—The Inquest. George Stone, who, with hii family, resided at 344 Virginia avenne, Boyle Heights, was instantly killed by train No. 4 at Kedondo yesterday morning. He was literally cnt to pieces, tbe entire train passing over his body. Stone was sent by Sheriff Cline to a place near Redondo to take charge of a flower garden wbich bad by law fallen into tbe sheriff's hands. He was on his way to church from the garden wben killed. Mr. Stone was very hard of hearing, being almost deaf. He did not appear to notice the train at all, even though the engineer noticed Stone at a distance of 75 feet away. He was walking along side the track. Wben tbe train got within 30 or 40 feet of Stone he deliberately stepped upon tbe track, but as he waa going in the came direction as the train he did not ccc it. The danger whistle wbb given and the bell wae rung, but Stone appeared not to notice tbe approaching train. It was then too late for the engineer to alow down, and the man was struck. He lived only a few seconds, hia body being cut to piecea by the entire train running over him. Stone had lived in this city some years. He was formerly a salesman in tbe City of Paris dry gooda store. He leaves a wife and two children. He waa a Native Son and was 40 years of age. Coroner Cates beld an inquest on the remains in the aftornoon at Redondo. The verdict of the coroner'a jury wae in accordance witb the foregoing facte. No blame was attached to the railway company ncr ita employees. The Klwarriu Matter. Mr. E. J. Brent, the furnitnre dealer of 410 South Spring street, makee a atatement regarding the story about L. De Elwardo, publiahed in Sunday's Hkrai.d, which puts a different aspect on the affair. Mr. Brent says that be offered Elwardo work but he did not turn up at the proper time. Elwardo, it seems, bought a lot of fnrniture and found himself un able to pay for it, when Mr. Brent of fered to give him a bed if he wonld re turn the furniture; but Elwardo would not consent to that, forcing Mr. Brent to get an officer and take away what furniture Elwardo could get along with out, leaving what was necessary for hia comfort. He told Mr. Brent that he had a pen sion from tbe government, and he iB aaid to have gone to work at hie trade of a machinist. Mr. Brent appears to have acted within bis rights and not unjustly er cruelly in the matter.
