THE GARIBALDI OF SALVATION.
Practical Religion and Con quering Christianity. General Booth Delivers Two Rousing; Sermons. Be Will Speak This Aftarnoon at Slmp aoa'e Tabaroaela for tha Last Tltac—Bit Departure. Yestsrday morning at 7 o'clock tbe Salvation army held a knee drill at the Presbyterian church, corner ol Second ■treat and Broadway. These prayers were led by Colonel Lawley of General Booth's staff. At 10:30 there was a holiness meeting led by tbe general in Simpson tabernacle, to which admission was free. He mads a short sermon which was followed by a revival service. The invitation of coming up to the plat* form to obtain salvation waa accepted by 28 persons. MUSTER Or TROOPS. Saturday night's parade was repeated in the afternoon, there bsing In line at least as many Salvationists as tbe even ing before. The same Itinerary waa fol lowed. There were many peoplo all rlong the route who expressed wonder ment at the strength ol the Salvation army. AT TBB TABBRNACLB. Simpson tabernaole at 3 o'clock was so well filled that it would have been difficult to find aoeommodetios for more than wars present. There were many prominent Los Angeles people on the ground flooor and in the galleries, a number ol whom are Catholics. Un doubtedly a perceptible percentage of ol the audience bad been attranted by a desire to see the methods by which General Booth works salvation, bet the great majority were sympathisers with the army, although not all members militant. When the leader and hit staff ap peared on the platform of tbe tabernacle v rousing amen from a thousand throats met bim. Tbe base drummer ponnded his instrnment with vigor and every body stood np while the "volley," as they call this salute, was fired. Colonel Lawley opened the services with a song, the first verse and chorus of which is here given : There is a fountain filled with blood Drawn from Immanuel's veins; And tinners, plunned beneath that flood, Lose all their guilty stalna. Ob, glorious fountain, ' Open for me; Oh, glorious fountain, Open now for me. Brigadier Keppel followed In prayer, and then Colonel Lawley and Staff Cap tain Malan, last of whom has a very good voices, sang a duet. The ehorns was taken np by tbe whole andienoe, who at the end of the first line held np their hands above tbeir heads. Tbe eborns runs ac follows: My sins rose as high aa a mountain, They all disappeared in the fountain; He put my name down for a place and orowo, Bless His dear name I am free! THE GENERAL'S ADDRESS. Then General Booth, whose voioe bed much improved since yestsrday, al though it is evident tbat he has not quite got over his cold yet, began his sermon. His eloquence and vigor in delivery were magnificent. General Booth is a forcible and Interesting speaker who never wearies hii hearers, but keeps them anxious to hear mors from his lips all tbe tins. His theme was Salvation. Jesus, he said, being a high priest, tbe blghent ol all, sitting beside the Father, none ever need despair of salva tion. It means something more than a profession oi religion. The speaker would not give much for a man's chances of salvation unleea he proclaimed it co often and so loud ac he could. A man n ho is ashamed of his religion has none. The gestural here devoted some cut ting, stinging observatione to religious humbugs, who use oant and hypocritical talk, who have tbe forma aud outward marks of religion and who, yet, are not saved. Salvation, said the general, means more than religious feeling. When we mean tbat a mm is savsd, ab mean that he ceases to be in the hrnad way that leads to deetraetion, but ii ac engaged in the narrow road which loads to eternal life. All sins of past itfe may be washed away in the blood of ' tie Lamb, and all things may become • ow. No man or woman ia the house -oulddare to say that they had never einned, be it against God, lather, mother, sister, wile, master or friend. When a man is saved, glory be to God, it means that all that long array has been wiped ont, that all has been forgiven. Salvation also means the turning away from a selfish, useless, money making life to a pure, charitable, God glorifying one, seeking tha salvation oi others. God will save to the uttermost those who will come to h>m. He is not like certain doctors —He know.; not of incurables. A rnnD must serve God or hie business. If your business ia opposed to God's ways yon must quit it or be damned iorever. Fci peculiar peoplo there is peculiar salvation, but salvation is there just the name. In conclusion tbe speaker said: "If some people say my theology is not sound, I say never mind. It ie good enough for me. Home say that Jesus Christ died for a few indi viduals only, and left the others, the great majority, out in tbe cold. No, no, no, thut is not so. Christ died for all human beings, for every man and every woman. When he hung npon the cross and broke his heart, he died for every human being in the world, to bring sal vation to tbe uttermost for the back slider and for the sinner. There is oel v lit ion for every use. Let ns all pray." In response to Colonel Lawiey'e earnest appeals aoveral people aooepted tbe invitation to be prayed with at the platform. In the evening the taberneele was again filled to overflowing. The ser vices were opened with prayers and songs, the greatest religious fervor pre vailing during the exhortation by Colonel Longlev. General Booth adjured tbe people to think about their souls, and tboee of their wives and little chil dren. He ohose for his subjeot the 17th chapter of tbe Gospel according to Luke, Irom the 26th to the 32nd verse, contain ing the story of the departure from Sodom of Lot and his people, and the fate of Lota's wife. The speaker said he would eddresa Himself to the heads ol his audience litet and then to tbeir hearts. He then told, in bis own peculiar, forcible way, how tbe people of the doomed city had gone so far in their iniquity that it filled the measure, and God had made up bis mind to destroy tbem. Tho visit of the angels to the house of Lot was related. General Booth said that he had oome on tbe same mission as the angele tbie night in the oity of Los An geles. God is going to destroy tha wicked. He oould not say when it would be, but it would oome. Got! would destroy the wicked and uphold the righteous. Proceeding, he depioted bow Lot had been received in tnoekery and unbelief by hie eou-in-law wheti he told them the fate that was in store for Sodom. How many people have refused to be lieve until th»y sew, and when they saw it was ton late to bn of any eervice to them? Lot's wile did not want to leave Sodoui, but at laat she consented, tbe angele warning her to leave Sodom, not to look behind her, to go to Zoar and she would be saved. There wee, said the general, a striking warning coming from hie lips tonight aud the warning giv-9n by the angele. If those preeeut did uot bend that warning now their | souls would go to hell. His warning was: "Leave your sins now, go to Christ end you will be saved." There le no compulsion about it; you needn't be saved, unions you wish it. bat if you will be with your sins, you will be demned with your sine. If is -seen ie ready to do what ho ought to do, lei him do it as quick as be can. How would yon feel with the death rattle in jso-ui throat and knowing that you were going to be damned? You may not b» ready to b» saved tonight, but in all probability yon may be dead tonight at tomorrow. Don't terry on the plain; don't look behind; make a rnsh aud deliver yourself np to Christ aim He will i-ring yen otttof the passion of lust and evil and trie Sodom within yon. My work ie don* ; I hav-t said all that I could. It is for you to do the rest. Come and be saved, Sevsral penitents catue to the plat form and were prayed for, among aroeDs aad hallolnjab-j by the hundreds. This afternoon sit 3 o'clock the grand farewell praise msstn g nt the labor - uncle ffill take place. Eutranee will be free. General Booth has deeded that he will ones mora address the people of Lot .tnfrnl.se. but requests that those who corse remain until the snd. Thire will not be »ny mesting at Ihi. Presby terian church in the afternoon. The general aud his etsff leave tovight ten Sacramento. SPOUTS OJP THE DAY. SOME GOOD BASEBALL AT ATH- LETIO PARK.

The ilighwaynit-n Get All the Victim's Money. Then They Shot aS Rim—The Fuller ttroo.ry Slur, Rj»bb-ry -Another Men Captured. About 7 o'clock Saturday night two bold lootpads held up a Mr. Wolf, who is employed by the Stimson Lnmber company, and robbed bim of all be had. Mr. Wolf left tbe lumber yard some what lato and was driving leisurely along toward bis home at Walnnt street and Pasadena avenue, East Los An geles. Just as he drove upon the Kuhrta street bridge, be saw a heavy-set man coining toward bis wagon. He paid no particular attention to tbe incident, bnt as tbe wagon drove on, the fellow end denly leaped upon the whifH tree and jumped in the wagon behind Wolf. At the san&e moment another, a taller matt leaped into the wagon from the op posite aide. Bofore Wolf could realize bis position, he ires helpless. The rob ■ bere held him and "went through" hie pockets. They secured $5 , a puree and two gold rings—all that the lumbermen had, ex cept a watch. One ol the highwaymen, on reaching in Wolf'a right band pocket, felt tbe timepiece in the little watch pocket, and told hie partner to hold him until it could be secured. Suddenly Waif freed his hands, and though he wee still held to the sent, dealt n revere blow to the taller of the robbers, knocking him from the wagon. Tbe other highwayman then fired at Wolf, the ehot barely grashig his bead. The powder burned hint eossawhat, and he whipped np bis horse*. Tbe thieves meanwhile were moving off in tbe opposite direction. They came toward the oity. Wolf soon alter reported tbe case to the police, who worked all night and all day yesterday upon it. It is thought that the footpads who committed thie act also held np El dridge Fuller, at hie grocery store, 534 Mieeiou rood, an hour after tbe first rob bery. Fuller wae attacked by a single man, whe wore a black mask. Another man stood just outside the door. When tbe robber entered he commanded the grocer to hand over bia money. Owing to surprise, Mr. Fuller hesitated, when a shot earned him that procrastination was akin to doath, and before he oould sufficiently recover to find jnst "where he was at," tbe thief had the money drawer and its contents, and waa gone. Deteotive Goodman shortly alterward arrested three youaLg men at the resi dence of a widow ana her two daughters and booked them "on suspicion" at the station. He found the mask, an over coat, tbe till, and rubber shoes worn by tbe highwayman. Yesterday one of the men, A. B. Mey ers, a carpenter, residing at 827 Oas talar street, was released, as it became evident that he had nothing to do with the robbery. The other two men arrested were John W. Helium and A. Garcia. Hel ium ia a railroad man, and Garcia lives on Maoy etreet. They are etill in jail awaiting developments. Late last nlgbt another man was oaptured on suspicion of being the rob" ber of Fuller'B grocery etore. He gave the name of John Smith. He was iden tified by Mr. Fuller as ths robber. PICTURESQUE MEAT. Magnificent Dlaplay or Christmas Beevee on Main Str-et. The most magnificent display of meats and poultry ever presented to tbe pub lic of Loe Angeles is the exhibit of Mr. Julius Hauser, corner First end Mem streets. The beeves are pronounoed the finest in the market, while the mutton, pork and poultry doss not leave room for the meet particular epicure to wish for anything else. Seme of the beevee weigh 852 pounds, dressed, other 834 and 822 pounds, and so down, while some o! the hogs scale ths beam at 788 and 684 pounds respectively. All beevee and porkare have been carnfed and re served lor this occasion. This is tbe way Mr. Hauser serves his customers and we hope tbe general pub lic will appreciate this fact by liberal patronage. Even competing butchers acknowl edge the fact that Mr. Hauser has tbe beat and fioeet display in the city, says, for instance, Mr. M. L. Ryan, one of the moat experienced and skillful moat dressers in tbe city. This was his verdict Inst night, and the many visi tors of the establishment concurred in 11 r. Ryan'e judgment. < The whole management in preparing this display, from the slaughter pen down to the shop, hae been under tbe personal managemant of Mr. Hauser bi'itself and hie manager, Mr. J. Wamo fier. aad hie foreman, H. E, Hergett. and rest, of tbe crew. An establishment with such a staff can not help but meet with success. " Merry Christmas. ACCIDENT TO A RANCHER. Fred l"-owell, or Vinalaod, Ran Over by a Wagon. Fred Rowell, a resident of VineUnd, near Dnarte, waa taken to the receiving hospital iaet night with a broken leg. He and L. 0. Montague, also of Vine land, were hauling household goods. They reached tbe Sau Fernando grade when Howell's horses backed. He got out to hold the wheel from going back ward down the grade, but lost bis hold. The wagon ran over the left leg, break ing it badly.
