The Christian's Symbol. Bishop O. A. Goodsell, L. L. D., of tbe Metboditt Episcopal church preached at Central church, Fifteenth and Main atreeta, yesterday morning. Inasmuch aa tbe tbe dlooaoe extends Irom Ban Diego to Britiab Columbia and eontalna 600 churches, so muob time ia consumed "iv making the circuit tbat Bishop Uoodsall'a visits to I.os Angeles are altogether too few. A fairly large congregation gathered yesterday to listen to tbe sermon, wnieh waa based on the text found in 1 Cor. 1:17: "Let tbe crosa ol Cbriat be made of no avail." The reverend gentleman gave a luoid add striking expoaition on the croaa and Ita meanings to humanity. "Un every church ateeple, every prayer book, the eroaa ia seen, aud it etands for the mightiest religion tbat ia propagating itaelf today by means of -love. When erected on Calvary's height it waa tbe salmination of all that bad gone belofe. the supreme moment waa roaobed when the worda were Uttered, "It la finished." We are not to believe that Christ him self waa not filled with a aenee ol bia own mieaion, It has always appeared to me as if during his boyhood days, whan in disputation with tbe doctors in the temple, be felt tbe burden and bad, to seme extent at least, an understand* log oi his divine mieaion. ''lo tbe rabble onlookers the three crosses meant the aame thing. While we thine- of two as only oaating humili ation on tbe third that one bas become the symbol of onr own faltb. And so it Is not the sight of tbe eye bnt of the heart that interprets. If we lift onr hearts to Qod tban is the inner eye opened and we gain a realizing sense of the meaning ol tbe cross on Calvary. Misunderstood by tbe Jawa and tbe Roman rulers, even hia disciples failed to understand him. Tbe extraordinary fact to me ia tbat tbey abould have con tinued to believe that a temporal king dom was to be established after He told them specifically that Hia kingdom waa not of tbia world. But their patrlotie aspiratlona prompted tbem to interpret His worda wrongly. But in their situa tion would we have understood Christ any better? We have bad 18 centuries ol Christian progreaa to help us, and ao we ought to understand Him better. "The cross stands aa an emblem ol aalsapprebension and cruelty. Tbe tendency now, In administering the death penalty, ia to be merciful, but in those days man were cruel for cruelty's lake. No picture in tbe world's history baa appeared so oruel on tbe aide of humanity and so majestic on tbe divine tide, aa the Maater suffering in agony while the crowd around were clamoring lor hia death. Two of tbe orosaea bore victims who were there because tbey bad defied the law, but the third was tbere because He expressed the love of (Joi to humanity and surrendered Him self tbat He might sutler all that hu manity oould inflict." Bishop Qoodaell proceeded to show how the cross also represents man'a sin fulness, ia an inspiration to all in time »f temptation and is an everlasting sym bol, also, of divine justice and holiness. The Fate of Our Karth Bodies. What beoame ot Christ's body waa tbe queation dealt with yesterday by Key. J. S. Thomson at Unity cburoh. The aermon waa one of the series being leliverod, having a pertinent bearing in queationa at present disturbing the publio mind, and which are proving an lid to many in tbe readjuatment ot Ideas without tbe surrender of funda mental trnaba. Mr. Thomson took for his text tbe words, "It Is gown an animal body, it is raised a spiritual body," I Cor., xv:44. "We make maobinea for the conserva tion and ntilisation of nature's forces," laid the speaker, "and when we want 'certain kinds oi fruits and vegetables we plant aeeda, whioh are simply organ la macbinee for gathering, arranging and forming certain foroaa for our food. Our bodies are organic machines through which oar noinde manifest themselves and gain earthly experi ences. The body ia composed ol aeveral systems, one in another. The moat in terior system is the apiritual lorm. Al death this inmost garment of tne soul rlaea out of the ani mal ayatema and the aoul in it paaaet into the beyond. This ia tbe ressurreotion whioh the new testament teacbea. Christ appeared aeveral times la hia body wbioh bad been crucified, tome ol bia friends held him by the set after bis ressurreotion; some saw he wounds made by the nails and pear. He ate flab with hia diaciplaa -"a spirit bath not flash and bones aa •c see me have." It is aaid that bia ipirit left the body on tbe eroaa. that 'hia flesh did not ace corruption." His »ody then did not mortify. John re tarded it aa very wonderlul tbat blood md watar flowed Irom tbe apear wound a Cbrlst'a aide. Tbia phenomenal oc lurrenoe has received various explana tions Irom theologians and physiologists but It teems to indicate that alter the Jeoarture of Christ's spirit, his body bad animal life enough left in 11 to pre serve it Irom mortification, and to keep It ready for reanlmation by his return ing apirlt-one thread of animal life waa intact. It ia alao stated in Mark tbat he appeared atEmmana "In another form" and that be vanished from tbe sapper as soon aa he waa recognised by his friends. He went into hades in bia spiritual body, not in hia phleioal body, altar hia crucifixion, ao he must have lived, moved and worked, In the old body in other forma, aa In tbe spiritual body, daring th. time between bis crncifixtion and resurrection. Paul calls tbe body "vile," a "body of death;" as he says that "flesh and blood cannot inherit the kiugdem of God." He re joiaes that he will be clothed in bis "bouse from heaven;" that bis body spiritual will be like Christ's "glorious body." Surely Christ's earthly body, made of milk, water, fishes, grains, frnlts, vegetables and wine, would be a clog to him in tne beautiful world above. He must bave had in bia old home in tbe heavens before his incarnation, a fine body, a body fitted for that home; and it ia both reasonable and spiritual to be lieve tbat he wonld not carry the "vile" body of earth into tbat refinesl and spiritual life. As be ascended from tbe bill, bis divine power dissolved bis earthly frame, and dissipated it into its original elements. He reanmed his beautiful spiritual body, and dropped the earthly tabernacle forever. It ia a blessed comfort to human beings to know tbat there will be no resurrection of tbeir sick and heavy bodies, and that tbe light, cosy, healthy, fine spiritual forms will give tbe soul the freedom oi angels. In the Apocalypse, tbe Greek language is strained to its ntmoat capa city to express the beauty of dress and of home in beaven, and to describe the glories tbat tbe Creator has provided for tbe children of earth, after passing through tbe gateway of death. New Christ Operates. Rev. A. C. Bane delivered a discourse yesterday morning at Trinity church from tbe words "But thou bast kept the good wine until now."—John 11:10. Prefacing his remarks by allnsion to the fact that Christ proved that he was the Mesiah by means of miracles and that these were necessary inasmuch as he oame to a world of ignorance and of doubters, Mr. Bane remarked that after the greatest miracle of all —the cruci fixion and resurrection—these signs and wonders were no longer necessary to es tablish bis divinity. "When we consider," said Mr. Bane, "that Cbrist was for thirty years pre paring and that his actual public min istry lasted only abont three years, one Is inclined to ask 'Why all this waste of time?' Bat tbese years of preparation were not misspent. Moses, though forty years of age, spent another forty years' preparation in Mldian for his mission, and John tbe Baptist lived In tbe wilder ness preparatory to his life work. The young people of today ought to lay this lesson to heart and spend more time in preparing for the future; then we would hear of fewer failures and more useful lives. So it is in tbe spiritual life— Christians should spend more time at prayer and better prepare themselves for toe weighty responsibilities tbat await them. "Instead of securing a spacious hall in Jerusalem, Christ performed his first miracle in tbe quiet of a house in little pans, and began bis ministry in a place Of joy. "Religion was never meant to make as less happy, but Christians should en joy every pleasure that is proper to In dnlge in. Christ blessed the marriage (elation by his presence. Would to God that tbe blessed Jeans were present at more oi our weddings at this day I Then would there be lass talk of mar riage being a failure. "We learn from tha text tbat tbe cus tom was Co serve tbe best first. Tbat is the way of the world. Satan offers the most enticing things first and, like tbe prodigal son, hia followers begin with feasting snd end by trying to fill them selves with swine's hnsks. Not so with Christ, be reserves tbe best for the last. Some have sought to find in this scrip ture a pretext for wine making and wine drinking. These should remember tbat Jesus, though willing to make wine for the pleasure of others when tbey could not do it themselves, would not tnrn stones into bread in order to satisfy his own hunger. "And this Christ is not dead. Ha is still turning water Into wine, snd tbe last expression of his goodness in the way ot copious showers of rain over tbis fair land will demonstrate tbe miracle again—'converting the water into fruits, flowers, grain snd all manner of Cod's good gills to man," Revival Services. Evangelist Pratt continues to draw a large crowd on the East Side. Tbe union meetinga are developing in power and interest. Yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock there waa a grand masa meeting al the Con gregational church in whiob ell the pas tors and Cbriatians participated. The ainging was a pleasant feature, espec ially the beautiful duet by Mr. Raglin and Mrs. Morfoot. After a prayer by Rev. George E. Dye, Mr. Pratt delivered an Impressive sermon from Amos, iii, 3, "How can two walk together unless they be agreed." It waa an earneat, logioal and tender diaoourae on the affinities in nature and grace, showing the utter imposatbility of entering heaven unleas we bave heaven in our souls here on earth. The night services were held at the Presbyterian church, wbioh haa the largest seating capacity ot any ol the oburches ou the east aide. Notwith standing the rain and mud the large edifice was well filled. Af.ter a service of song Rev. Hill in voked the divine blessing. Mrs. Wise man aang a beautiful solo entitled, Ashamed of Jesus. Rev. Laverty of fered prayer. Mr. Raglin and Mra. Morfoot sang a duet entitled, Ye Must Be Born Again, which title proved to be tbe text of tbe evening. The sermon waa very impresiive and waa listened to with rapt attention. When the request waa made lor those who had experienced a change of heart to atand, fully 600 people were on their feet. About 40 othera signified a dsaire to meet with the change ol beitrt. An Inquiry meeting was held at whioh about 200 remained. Mr. Pratt will speak tonight at 7:30 at the Congregational church, and will meet tbe Methodist ministers today by special invitation. High Speed Revivals. Rev. Geo. E. Dye delivered a dis course on "Revivals," yesterday morn ing, at the Eaat Los Angelea Baptist oburoh. "While revivals." aaid he, "are not all they should be, they are nevertheless a good thing if conducted In a oommon aenae way. II any one expeoted tbe ohurch to go along in ruts they expect what the nineteenth century forbids. The chariot of salvation must gO at palaoe oar speed, even II the axles get hot and kindle into a flame. Even a bard rain ia preferable to too much dry weather. People who object to revivals are liv ing at a "poor, dying rate" aa a rule. Revivala are only harvest timea alter aeed sowing. Some aay they are only "temporary excitements." True. Uarveat time ia abort, bat the golden grain must be garnered. The revivala ol 1857 were ol abort duration, but the in fluence oontinuea to apread in ever widening clrelea. Four-aaventba of ail Christiana have beetr-eonverted in re vivals. "The greatatt hindrances to revivals LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 10, 1804, are indifference, predjucie, Ignorance and criticism. None of these ever aave a soul." Mr. Dye dosed by an earnest anneal for Christiana to lay everything aside at this particular time and work the work tbat endures. Rev. Joseph Smith at Peniel Hall. There was a very good attendance at all tbe aervicsa yesterday In tbe large hall of the Pentel mission, to hear Rev. Joseph Smith, who preached three elo quent and stirring sermons full of olear exposition and bright illustrations. There was a spirit of devotion and enthusiasm, soma very hearty singing and a moving toward 3od on tbe part ol tbe people, especially so at the afternoon service, where many rose in all parts of the house at the very first call for seekers of salvation and tha altar was aoon crowded. Mr. Pratt, tbe evangelist, was on the platform at the morning service and made the opening prayer. Mr. Smith continues his meetlnga for three more days at Peniel ball, closing with a great holiness oonvention on Tuesday and Wednesday, when meet ngs will be held all day. Notes. The services at St. Paul's yesterday were of especial interest. Rt. Rev. Dr. Nichols, bishop ot California, delivered a sermon appropriate to the season of Advent. The musio was a special fee* tare, The Kyrle from Mozart's Twelfth Macs being rendered by the choir ex ceilently well. BishopO. T. Fitzgerald occupied the pulpit at Immauusl church yesterday morning and delivered an address irom the text, "Lay not np for yourselves treasures upon earth."—Matt. 6:19 Tbe service was for the especial benefit of foreign missions and the bishop read a touching letter that had been dictated by the pastor, Dr. Chichester, from bis sick bed, urging the congregation not to allow their offering to tall below the bigbwater mark of laat year. A confirmation service was held at St. John's Kpisoopal church yesterday afternoon, when Rt. Rev. Dr. Nichols, bishop of tbe diocese, confirmed a class of 30 candidates. St. Vincent's college and parish is about to lose its present superior, the Very Rev. Father Hickey, 1). D., wbo baa been promoted to tbe professional cbair of moral theology at the Catbolie seminary, Germantown, Philadelphia. Los Angelea loses in him one of ita most logical, most eloquent snd most liberal minded ecclesiastics. Father Hickey ia a thorough American, whose appoint ment to the highly responsible professor ship ia regarded by the bast informed church authorities as a step to greater dignity. The reverend gentleman will leave for tbe east on Tuesday next. May auoeess accompany him wherever he goes. SOCIETY.

Additional Accommodations Needed for 1100 Children. an Estimate by CItJT ■ apsrlntendeat Saeroh—Condition or thn Present Balldlngt n« Kea-erda Speee and Privileges. The oity attorney is engaged in pre paring an ordinance calling a special eleotlon for the voting of bonds with which additional school improvements shall be made. The council will no doubt act upon the matter busily at to day's session, or at the next session at the very latest. The ordinanoe will include amounts to be raised to improve tbe parks, being in substance an ordinance de termining tbat the publio intereat and necessity of tbe people of the olty of Los Angeles demand the building and equipping of certain sobool houses, tbe alteration of certain school houses here tofore ereoted, and the acquisition of certain lands upon which to build said sobool houses; also tbe acquisition and improving of certain lands for tbe ex tention of public parks : also tbe con struction of a tunnel under and along a portion of Third atreet in said city ; also tbe acquisition oi certain iand upon which to construct beadworks for a water ayatem of aaid city—tbe cost of which improvements, and eaoh of them, will be too great to be paid out of the ordinary annual Income and revenue ol said city; aud declaring tbe intention of tha city conncil to bave and procure aaid improvements to be made. Tbe combined amounts specified for park improvements is $321,600, while only $186,000 Is called for for tbe im provement and enlargement of tbe sebool facilities. Aa an actual fact,' tbe amount will scarcely fill tbe needs of the schools at preaent, to say nothing of tbe coming year with ita increased en rollment. Professor Search, superintendent of the olty schools, says tbat additional school aeoommodations are needed for 1100 children, who are at preaent limit ed to half day aessions of sobool. Tbe superintendent estimates tbat ICOO children are crowded out of sebool alto gether. Tbis is a small estimate, aa the ceoaua officer last, aprlng found 1980 children over six and under 17 years ol age who have not attended school dur ing tbe laat three years. There are 600 children in rented or other unfit rooms. Over 300 children of kindergarten age are awaiting kinder garten privileges in various parto of the city, while only 200 are provided for. Tbere are over 600 surplus in good school roomu that are now overcrowed. In case the bonds carry and tbe $186,000 worth of bonds are floated, it is a question whether tbe school attend ance at tbe time of the new buildings' completion will not exceed the room. An increase ol at least 1000 In school population Is expected by the time the buildings are ready for occupancy. In view of these estimates 100 additional rooms will be needed by the time tbe buildings can be need. These facts alone should insure tbe indorsement of tbe contemplated pro visions for tbe erection of school build ings, though it is plain that they will be insufficient. Since 1891 only four additional school rooms have been built by the city. During tbat time 4000 permits have bean issued for tbe erec tion of dwellings. The bonded indebtedness of tbe oity ie $1,300,000. Of tbia amount only $166,000 bas been caused by tbe erec tion of school building and tbeir equip ment. In the Condemned Veil, John Craig, tha murderer thrice told, wbo ia now under sentence ol death, appeara, by bia actiona in tba county jail, to accept his fate with equanimity. He ia a curionaly reticent being and has little to say to anyone, but devotes him self to tbe monotonous delight oi in terminable games oi solitaire. On Saturday, after receiving sentence, upon his return to hia cell, Ina'ead of appearing unusually depressed, be resumed his game and again berame ab sorbed and took little or no notice of anyone else. The guard tbat now watches In tha cell during the nigbt-time haa not established friendly relations, and the only human beings, apparently, capable to moving the heart of the prisoner, are bis little children. All the affection he ia capable of expressing be seems to bave for them alone. How deep even that may be, may he inferred from bia actiona on the day of tbe murder out at Hun* ter'a ranch. Within the next eight daya Craig will be aent north, ahould no atepa in inter vention be taken by bis counsel, wbo will carry their appeal to tbe supreme court. The Single Taxers. Everybody wbo attends tbe single tax meeting in Blenchard-FlUgerald ball tbia evening will be intereated la tbe music, tbe address and the discussion. Lawrenoe Dunham of New York olty will endeavor to show tha fallacy of the popular notion tbat labor and capital at a each other'a enemies, and will prove that labor ia really Ihe employer oi cap ital. All preaent will be invited to par ticipate In a discussion on Idle Land and Idle Men, with relerenoe to tbe adoption ol a plan lor giving unemployed men in the city a chance to work on Idle land. The exercises will begin at 7:45, with instrumental music. Mra. Clara Mott and a young lady pnpii will alng and play. Awarded Highest Honors-World* Pair. DH * CREAM BAKING POWDER MOST PERFECT MADE. A pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder. Prat from Ammonia, Alum or an «other adulterant 40 YEARS THE STANDARD. ALADDIN, JR., HERE. Th* American Kxtravaganza Company Arrives. The Arcade depot presented a peculiar eight yeeterdav morning. At the boor of daybreak a special train of nine oara pulled Into the atation, and in a lew momenta afterwards tbere waa a hub bnb and a chatter of language! that made tbe sleepy employees of the •Southern Petflco company open their eyes fn amazement. The American Kx trayaganza company, numbering about 126 persons, had arrived, and tbe con versation of the many and varied types of character will long be remembered by those wbo were present when the organ ization disembarked. There were the Italian and the French corypbos con versing with eaoh other; and pretty Catherine Bartho, the Russian danseuse, was trying to inform Martha Irmler, the German danseuse, wberethe hotel was located at which she was going to reside while bare. Then English Josie Chalders, with a I'ioadilly dialect that one conld out with a knife, began a conversation with Miss Maz zone, an Austrian danosr who cannot speak one word of English, and the for mer to make the latter understand tbat this was a semi-tropic climate and that she wonld not have to wear anow shoes, gave the night watchman the "willies." He will desoribe that conversation be* twsen these two pretty young women to bis grandchildren. Tha last man to alight from the train wil a thick-set, smooth-faced, white balred, young-faced man, faabionahlf dressed, who looked about the station and aaked Denial MoCuilough, tiie act ing manager of the company, bow many trucks there were on hand, to haul tbe four corloads of ecenery to tbe theater. He waa David Henderson, one of tbe most prominent of American theatrical managers, tbe proprietor and director of the Chicago opera house, Chicago; the Duquesne theater, Pitta burg; co-manager of the Grand opera houae, St. Louis, and co-manager ot the Broadway theater, Denver. It waa David Henderson, tbe man wbo organ* ized the American Extravaganza com pany nine years ago, and wbo haa been called tbe "Magicianof Fairyland." He it ia wbo haa given to tbe American publio in annual succession the Arabian Nights, Bluebeard, jr., Crystal Slipper, Sinbad, Ali Babaaud now Aladdin, jr. "We have jumped from Denver here," aaid Manager Henderson to a Hkbald reporter, "and when I tell you of the anow drifts we bave come through you will know bow glad lam to get here, where tbe graaa ia green and the air is mild. We rode through tbe mountains laat night, and tbe aky was so clear and the acanery ao grand I conld not sleep, I went forward and rode on tbe loco motive with tbe engineer for four hours. I shall never forget that experience. I never realized before what the duties of tbe enginaer and firemen were. If I ever own a railroad, I will raise the salaries of the firemen, the first thing I do. "Tbe etsga of the Loa Angeles theater ia not as deep aa we would like to have il," continued Mr. Henderson, changing the subject of tbe conversation, "but I ahall be able to give Aladdin, jr., in all ita entirety. If I could not give it joat aa I gave it at my own theater in Chicago, I would not give it all. I will not preaent any one of my extravaganzas unless I oan do it right. lam very well aware that 1 can go around the country and give a 'cur tailed' performance and make a great deal ol money, bnt I don't believe in that. We may be a little crowded on the stage this weak, but I won't allow anything to be cut out. I ahall present all the scenery, all the ballets, all the costuming, lights and mechanical effects, just aa 'Aladdin, jr.,' was origi nally done in Chicago." And then David Henderson took a cab for the Westminster.
