YESTERDAY IN THE CHURCHES.
Rev. Howard on Doctrine and Christianity. Grspel Meeting of the Young Women's Christian Association. That Organization Dolug Much Good. ft&sT. CtHblio Prsacliss tv the 1. M. O. R.v Bias's Beriaoli—Notes. The Hey. A. 0. Eane preached from the 'out in - Peter, 111, 0, at Trinity M. K. Church South yesterday. The Lord is Not Willing Tnat Any Should Perish, but That ill Should Come to Repent- HUC*. Some declare that God is unjust to punish eternally; that they cannot love ot worship such a being. To justify the wrongs of God to man is tbe object of this sermon, to show that God is not harsh, and cruel, but a God of love. Man was created a free moral agent capable of abstaining from sin or of chooeing to enter into tin. There is no necessity upon any man to fall into sin. Tbe moral law under which man was placed by God could be obeyed and ful filled hy man "houl.l be so elect. God would not and does not demand more than one can perform. Yet in His love God has (ill -red free pardon for man if he will but ask and receive it. There could not have been more liberal terms devised than those prescribed by God, simply a willingness to accept pardon through Jesus Christ. Man no more was compelled to sin than is he com pelled to reject tbe proffered pardon for bis sin. He need not refuse mercy, but he does reject mercy. The governor never issues a pardon unless applied for, and reasons given. Suppose he were to issnt a proclamation offering free pardon to everyone who was willing to accept it, what sympathy would tbe.e be for the prisoner who re fused snch mercy? Who would be so thoughtless and nnjnst to declare snch a governor heartless and cruel? Who could love the prisoner who of hie own choice, first violates tbe law wbich be for bis own good should have observed, ami, second, rejects such mercy offered, and, third, abuses tbe justice of tbe pun ishment. God, our father, has promised free salvation for all. He has done all on Hie part to secure its acceptance; but man rejects His warning, His pleading, and prefers to hug bis chains in bis prison house of nn. In addition God has prepared in heaven a home for man, but has not prepared for him a hell. There is a hell, but it was not prepared by God for man, but for tbe Devil and bis angels, but man of choice seeks the Devil's do maik. The tender Savior bag prepared for man free salvation, dependent only npon bie willingness to accept it. Tbia ie the lowest possible price. How soon wonld we all become wealthy if the simple desire secured tbe wealth? I called, and ye refused; I stretched out my hand, and no man regarded. Who soever will may come. Our unwilling ness to receive ealvation on God's terms alone can destroy us. If God is not willing tbat any should perish, He never abandoned tbe greater part of the human race, as some have thought. God is love; and if He loves the din ner while yet in hie sins, whom can He despise? Man's salvation is wholly of God, his sin is his own work. Man choses sin rather than righteousness— darkness rather than light—because bis deede are evil. Men shun the light of the gospel; for it would reveal the wrong. No man will ever lose his soul merely because be sinned against the law ; but be will loie bis soul if he Bins against the nwcy so freely offered throng i the redemption ot Christ Jesus, by rejecting the mercy and the offered pardon. We have all violated the law and are nnder condemnation, but we may a!) be saved unless we reject tbe Saviour. A sick man dies not because be fell sick but because he rejects or fails to receive the remedy. You are not condemned because you are a eon of Adam. A child is saved until he is old enough to choose and is lost by rejecting Christ; not Adam, but you yourself are responsible for your loss. You can not rind protection under the sinful nature, a greater strength of grace is offered and rejected. Uod does not Bend any one to bell. Character built up hy the person sends him to hell or fits him for heaven. The sinful man gravitates to hell as a stone falls to earth. Sternal punishment, if punishment is eternal, is not on account oi a few sina but because tbe person remains a sinner eternally. The character is fixed aa drath iinds it; the annul man will enter into eter nal suffering iv eternal hell. Sin is but rebellion again 't God. Sin it war against the law and mercy of the eternal God. Should one treat with contempt and injury a tramp? We do not (eel the same decree of resentment, but substi tute for me tramp the mayor or tne governor or the preeident of the United States ai 1 how our resentment ia mag nified ; but what finite mind can com prehend the magnitude of the guilt of treason against infinite mercy and infi iiiio love. Tell me not eternal punish ment is too great for eternal rebellion against (iod. Jiiblice must be satisfied, the penalty must be paid if Christ is re jected. How can tbe debt be paid? if we are invited to the palace and the wedding garment is tendered us in the hlta-chamber before eutering to the feast, we reject it and enter in our rags can wa claim it unjust to be excluded from the banquet? The world is tbe ante-chamber to heaven, the righteousness of Christ is freely oifered to all. Why will we re j.-cl it? iboee wbo rejact the purifying bloop of Christ will not be fitted to enter heaven, nor wculd it be beaven should the vile and tbe base unchanged be ad milted there. If snch were not excluded heaven Would differ bnt little from earth. God has not lacked ability to save all, nor willingness nor love to ao coamlish it. The invitation is to all, warnings are nil along the pathway of lit* to ihe very gate of hell, and heil is ■n pictured that men may chun it. Yet Wow many disregard this so great salva tion, though we have a mediator and ad vocate witli the Father that all may be saved. No one can be loßt exceot he be unwilling to be saved, lie is lost with his eyes open, while God and all heaven ■re calling on him to return. Can snch nu one charge God with his loss? God could not any more admit an unrepent ant sinner into beaven, than be could send a sinner pleading the blood of J ecus into hell. May we each and all accept this aaivation through Christ. Y. M. C. A. Rev, Henry W. Orebbe, of tbe Second United Presbyterian congregation, preached in the V. M. C. A. auditorium yesterday morning. His text was taken from First Co.inthians, 16th chapter and 13th verse: "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong." A short extract from his ser mon is given below: These words have a military ring. They bave the smell of tbe battlefield on wbich tbe soldier tights an 1 where he gains victory. They remind ns, or at least some oi ua, perhaps, of the time when we stood in just some such cir cumstances as those which tbe apostle bad in mind wben he uttered these words. The first command which tbe apostle gives us is in regard to vigilance, and ie expressed in the words, "watch ye." We understand in common terms the meaning of these words. They siguify be on tbe aiert. In like manner tbe Christian must stand on bis guard and be ever watchful for the approach ot the enemy, that he may be prepared to use such means as are within bis reach for hie own spiritual defense. There is never a time in all our his tory in wbich we should not be watch ful. This is especially true in reference to onr souls. We are to use our judgment and in telligence in onr defense, and whether we see the danger or not, we are called upon to be watchful. Satan takes advantage of every op portunity. He strews tempting flowers in our pathway, so that in these trials and burdens we are very prone to yield. And hence Christ said to his apostles, "Watch and pray lest ye enter into temptation," for be knew of tbe trials before tbem and tbe burdens tbat were resting npon them. And so he enjoined upon them tbe necessity of watchful ness. Again, we should be watchful for the coming of Christ. We are told that He will come very suddenly and unexpect edly, and there is very great danger tbat He will find us sleeping, as He found tbe five virgins of whom we read. Stand fa.,t in tbe faith. You will recognize witb me that there ie no stand where there is no watchfulness. I believe that tbe apostle means here by standing fast in tbe doctrines which he had been preaching—the doctrines of grace and salvation. This standing fast is necessary to tbe next injunctions of the tent: Quit you like men. Some of you have read tbe story of tbe children of Israel, when tbey went out to fight the Philietinea. They wanted to bring tbe ark of God out tbat they might prevail agitnet tbeir ene mies, but tbeir leader said: "Stand fast, quit you lise men." Quit you like men that know Christ, men that bave been armed by faith. Be manly, be courageous; and then with watchfulness combined, we will be able to withstand temptation. Let us make tnese thoughts our watchword, bb we go down upon the Btreet, as we go to our homes. Let us call to mind the injunctions of tbe apostle: "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong in tbe Lord and in the power of His might." The Y. M. C. A. The gospel meeting at the Trinity M. E. church, south, yesterday afternoon, bad an increased attendance. Tbe opening music was a duet sung by Mrs. Bender nnd Miaa Lulu Pieper, accom panied by Miss Mattie Dunsan. Prater was offered by Mrs. J. W. Campbell and Miss Morse, and tneu followed an informal tr.'k to young women by Mrs. Campbell. It was so full of helpfulness and hope for discouragad and weary womanhood that it would be well if evety word could be told. Mrs. Campbell, who assisted in the first gospel meeting held, said: lam greatly interested in your work, and be lieve tbat through you there is much to bo done. You will need lo be very Christlike and very courageous. She announced aa her subject that of Individuality, and explained that tbe subject was a pertinent one in these times, when tbe highest praise seemed to be expressed wben we said a person had gtu.a individuality. That witb it came also responsibility. She eaid: God ban stamped each one of you from the first with His individuality, and has planned your lives; and if into them cornea sorrow and pain count yourselves honored in that He thought you strong enough to bear it. In whatever you have to do of daily toil, try to ekrbw character and let the simplest, most irksome task, be done for the honor and glory of Christ. Quoting from II Cor., x xii, Mrs. Campbell said we were too prone to think only of ourselves and say that someone else could do better things than we. This was wrong and self conscious ness, and instead we should study the possibilities of our own souls. If we could not all sing we could all do Bume service that would be just ai necessary and helpful. Every God given quality means some thing and should be put to use, and it is just as wrong to depreciate ourselves as to over estimate. Q loting again, I Cor , xii xii, the leader spoke more brave words and urged the very weakest to be>rin to take courage and from day to day try to practice patience and strength. She said: "Life is not a cheap thing, not an uninteresting thing, if rightly lived, and next to Christ Himself a Christian life was more to be adored than any thing else in this wirld." She referred finally to Galatians, v xx, "But tbe fruit of the Spirit, etc." Her closing prayer was that each life may be blessed of God. Miss Morse made a short address, and the meeting closed with short prayers. Monday evening is the regular Bible study. First Presbyterian. Yesterday morning at the First Pres byterian church, corner of Second and Broadway, the pastor, Rev, 3. E. How ard, delivered a thoughtful discouree based on the sixth chapter of St. John's gospel. Doctrine, said the preacher, is an important consideration but forms no essential partof Christianity. Spirit comes before dogma in importance. Tbe condition of the church was never so deplorable as when debates and hair splitting arguments were indulged in. The life of Curist bas been felt in every Christian's life since Ho wae upon earth. He bin kept His procaine to impart His life to no. Each age baa framed ita own theology —the relation ol Ciod to man. These theoriea and changing masses of opin ion have not altered tbe fact that there ia one spirit, there pulsates one Divine life through all Christianity. In a Christian lile there are two things grow ing up side by eide, human opinion and the eplritual life from Chriet; the latter alone formß the Christianity. Christi anity la Mfc not dogma. There ie only ac much Christianity in the world as there ie Christ in the aoul of man. Tbis LOH ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15, 180 L must manifest itself in pure living but we moil distinguish between the man ner of life and the motive of life; the latter only is Christianity. Christian life passes beyond mere morality, it goes clear to God. The Christian man is not necessarialy the orthodox man. There is not a devil in hell or out of it that is not orthodox. There are multitudes in tbe cburch who are not Christians, they are dead spirit ually, but orthodox It ii the spirit of Christ we want. To receive it we mnst turn out evil, ex pel pride and then He will fill us witb i His own life. Church of the New Era. Yesterday the Church of the New Era celebrated its first anniversary. In tbe morning Prof. W. C. Bowman dis coursed on the Church of the New Era ideal, placing morality before creed and correct doc trine of life before soul salvation. At tbe conclusion tbe members were served witb a snmptnons repast which the lad.; members had prepered, and (ally 500 people partook of the communion service. Tbe evening service was attended by about 800 people. After a piano duet Miss Bruner rendered a vocal selection, and was heartily encored. Rev. Geo. Cannon spoks in a most eloquent and touching manner for 20 minutes. Mrs. Annette Van Brandis then re cited Tbe Heart of Old Hickory in a most artistic and pleasing style. Dr. Downs, the national secretary of the Chnrch of tbe New Era, then made a brief address. K. W. Batchelor then announced tbat a committee had been appointed to bnild a home for Prof. Bowman. Rev. R. M. Webster then made a most stirring address. He said: "I believe in the new era. It iB coming. The night is far spent and tbe dawn appears. Christianity is not a failure. Christianity has never failed where it has been tried. Theol ogy bas been a failure, but not the gen uine Christ principle. Tne doctrines of .fesus Christ incorporated in our laws and in ou: business would bring about that era of good fellowship and justice for which we are sighing. Ninety per cent of tbe people bave only so much wealth in this world, in the shape of old furniture, as would go in a cart. This is not right. A new era is neces sary. "There is but cne way out of poverty and oppression and darkness, and that is tbe complete nationalization of in dustry. " George T. Bruce eaid he was inter ested in the Church of the New Era be cause it teaches tbat this earth can sup port all its inhabitants, if tbe people choose to act as brothers. Prof. Bowman then closed the even ing. East Los Angeles Baptist. The East Lis Angeles Baptist church was beautifully decorated yesterday In addition to the nsual ornamentation a handsome carpet graced the floor and the choir hox was moat tastily ar ranged. Rev. .en. E. Dye preached on "The Holy Spirit" in the morning. At night a grand praiae service was held, ending up the week of prayer. The choir was accompanied' by the Y. M. C. A. orchestra, which discoureed sweet music under the leadership of Mr. Meed. The pastor will take a vacation this week in San county. NEW YEAR'S HERALD. a.

Honors-World's Fair. fiGafllßaking IpLJI Powder The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Years the Standard MARRIAGE FROM BOTH SIDES. Father Dye Preaches on Matri mony and lis Features. There Can Be No Failure Under Certain Conditions. Bfarrlr.ges for Passion's Saks and for aioney Always Are Failures—One Bad Kesnlt Is Mo Cri terion. The always pertinent question, "Is Marriage a Failure?" was taken by Rev. Father Dye as the basis of bis discourse, yesterday morning, at St. Vincent church, and was treated by tbe reverend gentleman from an eminently practical and common sense standpoint, distinct ly encouraging by comparison to tbe "Mods Baird" doctrines and other fin de siecle methods. Tbe preacher considered that mar riage was certainly snre to be a failure, unless the contracting parties possess the necessary qualifications. It is owing to tbe fact tbat so many marriageß are made without the aforesaid qualifica tions, tbat they result disastrously; and it is on account of these failures that a number of unthinking illogical idiots ask, and answer the question, "Is mar riage a failure?" in tbe affirmative. " Passion is tbe cause of a number of unhappy marriages," declared Father Dye, "animal passion; and there's a great deal of it in us. A man falls in love—witb what?—a pretty face; it is love at first eight; Bhe is pretty, he, carried away by ber beauty, marries ber; but that's all ehe has, she will fly into a passion upon the least provoca tion ; she is Btupid and hasn't an idea in her bead; she's lazy, and her only idea is to look nice for her callers; and be takes tbis womin "for better or worse, in sicknesß and in health." Suppose she lose her beauty, what then? Suppose the scars of dis ease destroy her prett.. face—beauty is only skin deep—what has tbat man"got left? Simply the opportunity to law fully gratify hie brute passions. Now, that man will, ot course, tel you that marriage is a failure. Take another instance. A woman thinks a man is rich ; Bhe needs a posi tion, pleasures and gaiety; she ib tired of her humdrum existence, and marries him. She doeun't stop to think that bis money is all he has, and be bas nothing else. He is unrefined, coarse, animal, mean—in fact be is no man at all. Suppose be loses bis money, what has she got? Of course they find mat rimony is a failure, a distinct mistake. But, for all tbat, marriage is only fatal in some cases. In others it is a success. Marriage in itself is all right; it ie nat ural, it ie divine; established by God, who married our firat parents. With out it, where would you and 1 be today ? How would tbe human race maintain itself? I tell you it is good and holy, in accordance with the highest and best principles of nature; so you must not judge from individual cases. Because one or two people you beard of didn't bave these necessary qualifica tions, don't say the whole ihing is a faiiure; tnat would be illogical. If you ask a thief what be thinks of everyone else, he will tell you they are all thieves: a l.ar will tell you all men are liarß. They judge of era by themselves. And in the same way those who have not succeeded in their married lives tell you it is all a failure—but tbey are wrong. A man tell you there is no money in a certain bueint bb in which be failed; he only tells you tbat be cause there wa» no money in it for bim ; there may be for yon. Another example: Because one married woman forgot ber vows, would you say all are the same? Would you say tbat of yonr mother? And if you say that all are the same, you must necessarily include her ac well. Take a preacher: They forget themselves just aB much as you and I; don't they? I guess ho. Well, he admires another man's wife; and he tells ber so. and they go off. Would you say because of tbis tnat every preacher is looking for a chance to run off with someone elee'e wife? Suppose a priest forgets himself, and they often do, for the fact of be ng a priest dees'nt destroy a man's passions; suppose he disgraces himself aud the church, does it follow that, all priests must be the came? Now be honest; does it? Be careful, for bow would you like it to come back like a boomerang? Suppose I ask you whether you are a merchant, and you say "yes," and I tell you that because I found one merchant a scoundrel ail are alike, and you with tlio rest? Now do you see the point, how illogical it ia to judge by one in stance? Marriage must be entered upon as a business, as a most serious business; if you rvsh in like fools where angels fear to tread, then will yours ne a fail ure, but marriage itself is good, holy; it ie divine, bringing out tbe beet in man, the best in woman.

AN ALLEGED HOLD-UP It Is Xi plained In Detail by Offloer Donahue. A sensational hold up was given in an extra edition of an afternoon paper Sat urday evening, wbich turns out to be a fake of the first water. The item stales tbat Jess Tucker of Kingsley street, wbo wae going home about 11:30 o'clock Friday night, was assailed by a lone highwayman. The young man, on being ordered to hold up his hands, began running, and escaped. The footpad fired three shots at tbe fleeing young man.

Mr. Tucker paeeed the officer on Figueroa street, near Jefferson, where be wae spoken to by Mr. Donahue. The policoman has orders to approach all persons seen in similar circumstances late at nigbt, and the officer wae only carrying out bis du ties in addressing the young man. Mr. Tucker did not reply, and the officer again spoke to him, when the frightened young man "lit out" down the middle of tbe Btreet. He was commanded to halt, and disobeying tbe order, tbe offi cer fired tbree shots into tbe air. ORANGES ALL RIGHT. LASSTERN PEOPLE ENLIGHTENED ON THE SUBJECT.

Continual Quarreling Regatta In Two Suepanalona. As a result of continual quarreling, Bert Jackson and Frank Zsnz were sus pended yesterday from the newsboys' home on Ducommun street.
