ONE ON THE SENATOR Navar Paid but One Doctor's BUI In His Loaf Life There ls a large Tennessee colony In Los Angeles and Southern California, most of whom, especially the older members, ha ye very pleasant recollec tions of Senator Isham G. Harris, the senior senator, and one of the historic characters of the south. The following anecdote of the senator, as told in the Troy, N. V., Times, will be appreciated as throwing some light on the age of the venerable statesman, a subject on which he ls a trifle sensitive, as well as -sjlving an index to his character: A constituent of Senator Harris met that gentleman the other day for the first time in a dozen years. The greet ing between the two Tennesseeans, as may well be imagined, was cordial. It was emphasized presently by sundry crooklngs of the elbows. "Ah, senator," remarked Mr. Harris' constituent, smacking his lips, "you don't look a day older than you did the last time I saw you." "I'm a little grayer, possibly," suggested the senator, with a pleased smile. "You are looking in excellent health, too," pursued his friend. "Thank you. And do you know," continued the senator, "that I am 74 years old and I never paid but one doctor's bill in my life, and that for a broken arm?" J, ls that so?" asked the friend in surprise. "Fact, I assure you." "Well, senator," said the friend, with a significant smile "don't you think it is almost time you Were paying some of them and preserv ing your credit?" The senator moved for an executive session and presented a bill of explanations. Quick relief from croup and w'looplng cough is afforded by Dr. D.

One who has heard him says: "His simplicity of Style and his admirable command of English remind me of Phillips, while his speech at times scintillates with the wit «r glows with the pathos of Gough; at the same time Woolley's speeches are marked by a breadth of statesmanship and a depth of Christian philosophy Which neither of those great orators equaled."

YESTERDAY AT THE CHURCHES Odd Fellows Attend Special Ser vices at tbe First M. E. THE SONS OF ST. GEORGE Listen to a Sermon by the Rev. W. H. Ratclifl Eloquent Sermen of tha Per. J. S. Thomson at Unity on St. Paul's Promotion—Dis courses at Other Churches There was a special service at the First Methodist Episcopal church at 3 p. m. yesterday for the Odd Fellows of the local lodges and those from neighboring towns, who are in attend ance at the encampment, the occasion being the seventy-seventh anniversary of the inauguration of the order. Tha members of the different lodges and can tons met at Odd Fellows' temple, on Main street, and marched from there in a body of several divisions to the church on South Broadway. The ladies of Re becca lodge also attended in regalia. After lining up outside of the church, the order of entrance was arranged and each division filed into the building, keeping step to a solemn march played on the pipe organ. A very brief musical and praise service preceded the sermon, which was deliv ered by the pastor of the church, the Rev. John A. B. Wilson. In part he said: "Gentlemen, In welcoming you to this church today, and attempting to ad dress you, there are some things which lam not required to dwell upon. 1 need adduce no argument to prove the ex istence of God, for had you been atheists you could never have been Odd Fellows. "Nor shall 1 seek to inculcate a belief in the sacredness and inspiration of the holy scriptures, both of the Old and New- Testaments, for had you disbelieved this and only believed in God, and been consequently deists, you could not have worn the badges of this order, which draws its most fundamental lessons from the teachings of the Old Testa ment scriptures as to the sacredness and obligations of friendship and from the New Testament scriptures and from the very teaching of Jesus, tlie great teacher, those lessons of love and helpfulness in trouble, which the order exists to inculcate and exemplify with in the limitations of its own member ship. "I know that this order depends upon the Old Testament for its example of friendship, and upon the New and upon the Christ for its ideal of love. "In your presence, therefore, I am saved from defending either the deity or the Bible. Hence, I shall seek to en force but a single lesson from that body we mutually reverence, and that lesson shall be the Old Testament ideal of friendship, by which you seek to shape your own, found in Psalm xix:3-6. " 'I will go out and stand behind my father in the field, where thou art. and I will commune with my father of thee, and what I see that will I tell thee and 'Saul hearkened unto the voice of Jona than, and Saul sware as the Lord llveth, he shall not be slain.' " The obligations of friendship was the theme of the sermon. After relating the story of David and Jonathan, he said: "It teaches us these practical lessons: "To recognize the hand of God in dif ferencesiofl gift. "To blame no man for divine differ entation. "To dwell upon the good In each other. "To remember favors received. "To protect the interests of each other, and "To help one another at cost to our selves. "But with all these lessons learned." continued the pastor, "you come short if you make Oddfellowship a substitute for religion. It takes from the Bible those lessons that teach mutuality ot obligations of people pledged to each other. But there Is a broader brother hood which obligates us to kindly deeds of helpfulness to those who can make us no return. The great teacher has said 'Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." We are never at our best until we have sat at his feet and felt the great heart throbs of this purpose and have learned to receive them as our own. "May you learn of Him the broader brotherhood that makes us the neighbor of every one in need everywhere." Church ot tne Ascension The evening services at the Church ot the Ascension on Boyle Heights were attended by many members of Royal Arch lodge of this city and Alexandria lodge of Pasadena of the order of the Sons of St. George. The pastor, Rev. P. F. Mackenzie, conducted the reg ular praise services and the sermon was delivered by the Rev. W. If. Ratcllff, chaplain of Alexandria lodge. The evening anthem was sung by Miss Mot tram. The preacher spoke from the text: If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my light hand forget her cunning; if I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth: Psalms 137-5. In part he Bald: Such, my dear brethren of the order of St. George.is the language of patriotism and poetry com bined. But after all the language of patriotic poetry is much the same the world over, and in all times. What has not the great poet Scott said: "Breathes there a man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land?" Thus has the same feeling been ex pressed by different poets of different countries. Let us then discuss this point. What is patriotism? What are its duties? What are the language and feelings peculiar to It? While considering the theme, however, let us remember that all virtues are capable of being per verted. Look at the examples of the martyrs, who died rather than give up their faith. Do they not bear witness to the truth, that the greatest of vir tues, faith, may be monstrously per verted? Thus may it be with patriot ism. Let us examine some of the steps whereby this may come about. Sup pose the case of a son who adores his mother with great fervor. Now, if that son shows his affection for his mother by hating some one else's mother he does not manifest extraordinary love. And so may patriotism be perverted. Not in an over-zealous love of our own coun try, but In the hatred of others presum ably through an extreme love of our own. But is this hatred of foreigners and foreign lands real patriotism? Is nor true patriotism a wide love not simply for all that is domestic but for all good things in foreigners and in foreign lands? I remember in a speech of Pitt the statement that England and France are natural enemies. I protest against such a statement. All nations should be and are by nature natural friends, commercially and in every sense. It ls therefore better to say that all nations are natural friends; and in stating this tiuth I know that I am speaking in accordance with the principles ot the order of St. George. Hitherto we have dwelt upon the negative side of the question, treating of what patriotism ls not. Let us there fore turn our attention to the other side and see what patriotism Is. It ls tco often a mere self-love. He is not the true patriot who shuts his eyes to all his country's faults and looks only at the good aad that alone. The traest, I/OS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING. AFRIT/ 27. 1896. patriotism looks well to its own faults and endeavors to correct them. The speaker then reviewed the his tory of the last few decades and pointed out the growth that had taken place In all lines of life. "Are these advances these improvements over past condi tions the result of shutting out all knowledge of the bad? No, rather It Is the result of the work of reformers who are the truest patriots, who studied the reeds of their times and strove hard to satisfy them. "And now, coming down to the pres ent time, what shall we do to be true patriots ? Tiiere are still evil conditions ptevalent everywhere, corrupt things to be eliminated, false principles to be rooted out. The millennium is yet far distant. Crying evils exist on every hand. There ls work for all and I call upon you to take your stand for this higher patriotism." St. Pawl* Promotion The pastor ot Unity church, the Rev. J. S. Thomson, preached a sermon yes terday morning upon Christ's Promotion of St. Paul Above St. Peter, taking the text. He is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel—Acts ix:ls. In part he said: "In the Acts of the. Apostles, the earli est history of the Christian church that we have, Peter occupies a more or less conspicuous place In the first part of ihe book, while Paul fills the largest place. Peter appears In eleven chapters; but after the fifteenth chapter he disappears entirely; but Paul appears In twenty one chapters, and, after the fifteenth, the remaining thirteen chapters are de voted altogether to Paul. This shows that Peter faded away before the In creasing glory of Paul. If we consuit. the epistles of the New Testament, we shall see that Paul ls superior to Peter. 1 We have two very interesting nnd in structive epistles of Peter; but we have thirteen epistles of Paul, omitting He brews, the authorship of which is doubt ful. Paul's epistles show him to be an original thinker of the highest order, a logician, a philosopher, a scholar, a man of daring faith, of mighty conviction, of irresistible eloquence, of commanding authority. Paul's epistles were highly esteemed, and the churches and Provi dence deemed it wise to preserve many of writings, and few of Peter's. In tho first and second chapters of Qalatians, Paul declares his independence of the other disciples. He received his gospel and commission from Christ directly. No apostle was his master. He owed nothing to Peter. He rebuked Peter in public for his lack of consistency and for his cowardly conduct. Peter had to ac knowledge Paul's superiority. Paul had no belief in Peter's infallibility in relig ious matters, for he proved him to be very fallible. The other apostles never recognized Peter's primacy, and. to do Peter justice, it must be said that he never claimed euperlority above all the other apostles. Apostolic succession Is the pretentious fiction of arrogant sao redotalism. Christ gave Paul the world for his missionary field. He was to preach Christ to Jew and Gentile; but Peter's field was the Hebrew world. The chapters, referred to in Galatians, show that Paul's mission was far larger than Peter's. But Paul's qualifications for his great work were far finer than Peter's. He was born, with all the rights and privileges of Roman citizenship, in Tar sus, one of the throe great centers of learning, Athens and Alexandria being the other two. He was proficient iv Greek literature, philosophy, and relig ion. He sat at the feet of Gamaliel, the famous teacher of Jerusalem, and he became thoroughly versed in Hebrew theology, tradition and mysticism. Paul, then, was a scholar, a linguist, a phil osopher, a logician, a theologian, a seer of visions, a hearer of celestial voices, a worker of miracles, an ardent believer, an irrisistible missionary, a founder of churches, a successful leader of men. and free from all the foolish notions of Judaism and Paganism. In the elev enth chapter of Second Corinthians ho enumerates his enterprises, it oors, and sufferings, and he claims that he ac complished more for the spread of tlie gospel than all the other apostles did. He saved Christianity from being a Jew ish sect, and made it a world religion. The powers, the works, and the commis sion of Paul were far greater than those of Peter. Paul stands next to Christ, and Peter next to Paul. The order of. greatness is this: First. Christ, the re vealer and inspirer; second. Paul, the cosmopolitan and builder: third, Peter, the Jewish reformer: fourth. John, the mystic; and, fifth, James, the Jewish preacher of practical Christianity. Christ said: 'Call no man your father upon the earth; for one is your Father, who is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters; for one is your Master, even Christ, and all ye are brethren.' That is. in the church and In religious matters, titles are not proper. So all ecclesiasti cal titles are contrary to Christ's gos pel. In reading the first chapter of First Corinthians, the eleventh chaptr of Sec ond Corinthians, and the first and second chapters of Galatlans, we learn that there were divisions among the church; some preferred Paul, some Apollos, some Peter. There were two great divis ions, called the Pauline and the Petrine parties. The wise leaders of that tlmu desired to unite the Christian world in one great church. They attempted to gather all the conflicting parties into the Catholic, or Universal, church; but the noble enterprise was a failure. The Roman Catholic party took Rome as the center. The Greek churches refused to unite with the Roman Catholics, and so did the Armenian churches, and other eastern churches. The Roman Catholic church has achieved the greatest suc cess in the matter of Christian union; but it made its great mistake in select ing Peter for its patron saint, and not the mighty Paul, the cosmopolitan, the grandest apostle. Now Paul is the patron saint of Potestantlsm. having the great cathedral in London dedicated to him, while Peter is glorified In the splen did cathedral in Rome. Christ's Chris tianity will accept Christ alone as the infallible head of his own church, and the Christianity which ls to be will Ignore both Catholicism and Potestant lsm in their present conditions, and ac cept the gospel of Christ ns its text book, and Christ himself as the illustra tion of the Sermon on the Mount. Christ himself, as himself, and not as a heathen god. is the only hope of social and re ligious peace." Theoiophlcnl A theosophical lecture was delivered yesterday morning by Stanley Fitzpat rick. I Subject, Symbolism of the Cross. The speaker said: The charge has often been made against theosophy that it attempts to do away with a belief in God and Christ. This is an error and ls due to an entire misconception of theosophy and its teachings. The church has no reason to assume an attitude of antagonism. It bases its doctrines and beliefs upon assumption only; but theosophy builds upon a solid foundation of logic, philos ophy and science which the ages have failed to shake or crumble. It offers a reasonable solution to every problem confronting humanity. Instead of hold ing back the Inquirer as the church does, by declaring it wrong and blasphemous to attempt to search out hidden things, it courts the most full and open Inves tigation. It presents a system of eth ics of whose purity, self-sacrifice and real brotherhood mere theology has never even dreamed. Its fundamental teaching is the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. Theosophy recognizes the Christ aa a divine prin ciple which Is every where and in ev ery thing, and denies that its only mani festation was in the man Jesus; though it admits that he waa a divine teacher —one of the world's many saviors. But the church has misunderstood and misapplied His teachings, as it has most of its own rites and symbols, and given them a grossly material meaning in place of the true and spiritual. Though the church has tried to monop olise these rites and symbols, they were all known and used thousands of years before the birth of Jesus. The passing Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Jbm&mWTKVX PURE of the cup was a part of initiation in some of the ancient Egyptian myste ries. Its meaning was purely mystical and spiritual. The sign of the cross has been entirely misunderstood and was not first adopt ed by the Christian church. It dates back to the fourth race—that preceding this. As an astronomical sign it is pure ly phallic, and represents the fall of man Into generation. It was so understood by the ancients In the rites of their wor ship. Its primary significance is the descent of spirit into matter ac cording to the law of evolution. The dual principle in nature, the positive and negative, the male and female, ls represented by the cross. The horizon tal bar symbolizes the mother or female principle matter; nature the upright, the father or male principle spirit. Through the union of these principles all manifestation ls brought forth. Viewed in this light the descent of spirit into matter is not a fall, or evil, but sim ply a proper and necessary part of evo lution. At tbs Tabernacle Last evening's service at Simpson tabernacle was well attended. The Rev. C. C. McLean preached from the sec ond chapter of Mark, the theme being Bringing Some One to Christ. In part the doctor said: "When we see men step aside from the neutral inclinations cf personal Interest, to benefit others, it is a pleasing scene. So we see in this incident of four men who brought the man sick of the palsy to Christ manifested such an Interest. Some men's sympathy goes out to those who can return something for it, but these men could expect nothing from this poor sick man. They had faith in Christ, and so they brought him to Him in whom they believed. These men had faith in th epower of Christ to heal. Their faith was stronger than the power of the disease, or of sin, the root of the disease. So the Lord Jesus Christ comes to us tonight and says if we have faith as a grain of mustard seed it shall avail. "When Jesus said 'Thy sins aro for given thee," there was no manifestation to show that he was free from sin, but when He said, 'Arise, take tip thy bed and walk,' it was manifest that divine power had touched his humanity and be was healed. We pray for moral re forms, but something is necessary to bring about reform. Get rid of sin, for the possibility of being freed from sin, which Christ gave to the world, alonj made it possible for reforms to brought about in the human heart, and in the world. Do something to bring some one to Christ and w hen you see the joy of a saved soul manifested in their lives what joy will come to your own soul. How many there are who are away from Christ who will never come unless they are brought by some one, just as this man was brought to Him." Spiritualism At Music hall yesterday the Harmon ial socltey of spiritualists held two in teresting meetinge. At 2:30 p. m. conference and tests, while the evening services were more formal in character. The pastor, Mrs. Ada Foye. delivered a most care ful and concise continuation of her last Sabbath's subject. riz .Mediumship and Its Laws. Tlie line of thought was: Medtumship Is mysterious simply be cause it. is not yet understood, All soi nece is mystery until studied. Medium ship is a gift to be cultivated; something beyond our power to create or dispose of: a means whereby we may glean knowledge from the beyond. Questions relating to the announced subject, given by individuals in the au dience, were answered in a very inter esting manner. After the lecture Mrs. Emma Sherwood, a favorite with the society, rendered a pleasing solo, fol lowing which came the usual seance for tests given by audible raps, or writing.

The tank vessel is still lying at ltedondo receiv ing her load, and has now aboard some thing between COOO and 7000 barrels of petroleum. At present there is some difficulty In readily securing enough oil to complete the loading, producers being backward in letting even their surplus go at a rate of 04 cents per barrel net, when 75 to 77 is being paid at the wells. This will have to be done, however, if the local rate is to be maintained, as the surplus, which must be disposed of in San Fran cisco will of necessity be governed by the ruling quotations in that city. Oil must be sold cheaper in San Francisco than here lo enable It to compete with coal, as there il takes something like 4V?. barnds of petroleum to equal a ton of coal at the market price, while here three barrels is the equivalent. Speaking of the disadvantages that the local producers have been working under, Treasurer Turner of the Oil ex change the other day stated that in his opinion oil could and should be sold here at $1.50 a barrel. At even that price it can successfully compete with coal. If one company owned all the wells, or if the producers would all Join the ex change and abide by its prices, a rate of $1.50 could be made and maintained. Every day sees some new consumer come into the market, and every day also sees a diminution of production from the field. With matters In this state there seems no reason why, by all pulling together, the oil men could not put the business on a paying footing. The west end of the oil field) ls about played out and only the deeper wells nre now pumping a paying stream. By the past actions of a majority of well owners, all that is needed is some one lo take the lead in fixing prices, and they will follow on up, but fail to stick literally to the ruling rate and sell for rust enough less to demoralize the mar ket. If this could be stopped lt would be a matter of but short time until all producers would be realizing a good price for their oil. Another thing that must be faced is the present monthly surplus. T'ntll the consumption has reached the full pro duction in this locality, the balance must be shipped out of this end of the state and not lie in the tanks as a con tinual menace to the market. Owners can hold their oil only so long or short a time until they are compelled to dis pose of It in somo manner., owing to the tanks being full, lack of funds to pay wages, etc. According to Mr. Turner, all hands must be willing to put in their pro rata of oil .at a lower rate, to be shipped to San Francisco, In order that they may thereby realize a profit on what is left here. This seems to work finely for the San Francisco man, but is rather hard on the local consumers. However, even when oil brings 61 cents at the wells here, it costs the 'Fris co manufacturer $1.15 laid down, against SB cents here. It is anticipated that the Talbot will get away with her cargo by Tuesday night and that the effect of her departure will be felt in an imme diate stiffening of prices. The directors of the oil exchange meet this afternoon, but will probably not advance the rate until they are assured that the Talbot has started. It is their intention to put up the price as fart as facts will war rant them and in so far as they receive the co-operation and assistance of the outside producers. Do You Enjoy Billiards?
