MR. WENDTE RESIGNS
PASTORATE OP UNITY CHURCH
IS AO AIM VACANT
UQUOR TRAFFIC ARRAIGNED
Dr. Chapman of Oakland Speaks on
Boa Bondage Dr. Wayland
Hoyt's Sermon
Star. C. W. Wendts has tent the following
letter ot resignation to the trustees ot the
Church of the Unity. It la understood that
he WIS soon return to his former home In
Oakland, Oal., and after a period of rest
settle in Boston for the winter or visit Eu
rope:
"Ever since my recent sever* nines* tt has
been Increasingly apparent tc me that I
needed' a long period ot rest, and release
from all professional 1 duties to rector* me
to health.
"For reasons also, which art wen known
to you, snd need not be entered into here,
th* pastorate of the Church of the Unity
m not congenial to me, aad I work under
great personal disadvantages. It was
nevertheless my Intention to continue my
services among you until the expiration of
th* sing!* year tor which I had contracted
to 411 your pulpit, and which ended Decem
ber Ist, ensuing.
"Bait In the mean time the work of recon
ciling and reorganising the society on sound,
eburchly line* ha* prqgressed' favorably. A
constitution placing the church squarely on
a Unitarian Christian basis ha* been adopt
ed, a new board of trustees, composed of
responsible and loyal men, has been elected,
and the better, more religious elements of
th* church are uppermost In ltecouncil* and
activities.
"I can therefore creditably to myself, and
with safety to the society, withdraw at the
present Juncture from its pastorate to seek
rest and restoration which my condition ot
health Imperatively demands. For various
reasons, aJso, R will be more advantageous
to th* church if I leave them now rather
than mat autumn.
"I beg you therefore to accept this, my
resignation aa pastor, to take effect on the
first of August next.
"It WIS give m* pleasure to co-operate
with you In any way In my power la the
abolc* of a suitable successor."
THE RUM BONDAGE
Sr. Chapman of Oakland Arraigns
th* Liquor Traffic
"Be ye not afraid of them; remember the
Lord, which Is great and terrible, and fight
for your sons and daughters, and your
wives and your houses." Although Dr. E.
S. Chapman of Oakland took the above
text from Nebemiah, at Immanuel Presby
terian church yesterday morning, the dis
course was more an earnest and impas
sioned temperance lecture than a sermon.
"The record of the church," said the
speaker, "indicates that we need to do
more fighting. Our evangelical denomina
tion* gain In membership only 7 per cent
per annum. It takes the Christian people
of this country 365 days to win seven souls.
The work of the church today is a work of
warfare, a work of conflict. There is an
organised hell on earth seeking to undo
the work ot the church and the Lord. The
liquor traffic has wealth, power, position
and public sentiment back of it, especially
In this state of California.
"I could not realize the enormity of this
power until I learned how this vulture
prey* upon our soldiers—how our govern
ment, after gathering these men from
home* and loved ones to go to the Philip
pines, should establish thirty-one saloons
across the street from their camp. We rot
enough grain, until It becomes in every
sense offensive, In the United States every
year, to make liquor, to provide a loaf of
bread every day for 1,000,000 people. We
■pend enough for rum to build a railroad
five times around the earth. In this state
We have 18,600 saloons, that pay 87,640,000 in
licenses, and cost us 84,000,000 a year. We are
being bled to death, and. we lay our finan
cial misfortunes to everything but to that
fact. It is In the interest of business to dry
op this waste and turn It Into legitimate
channels.
•Tor the first time In the history of the
world a nation has gone to war for the
sake of the oppressed, and for the sake
of the weak we have dared to give
up our sons and our brothers, but no bond
ace In Cuba can compare with the bond
age of the rum power of California. It is
for the interest of the weak, in the Interest
of the manhood that makes this nation
great and that islEe hope of our nation to
day, that we should enter into warfare
against this awful traffic."
THE LORD IS MT SHEPHERD
Rev. Wayland Hoyt Discusses the
Twenty-Third Psalm
A targe and appreciative audience as
sembled in the capacious auditorium of the
First Presbyterian church yesterday morn
ing, where union services between that
church and the Memorial Baptist church
were held. The chancel rails were draped
with purple and gold, and flowers of the
same bright hue adorned the platform. A
•pedal musical program was rendered by
the church choir, composed of Miss L Dar
ey, soprano; Miss Adele Stoneman, alto; H.
Brown, tenor, and Mr. Parsons, bass, Miss
A. C. Brown presiding at the organ. Ben
ders "Andante," on the organ, was fol
lowed by the anthem, "Benedlctus"
(Coombs), by the choir. Miss Stoneman
sang "The Lord Is Mindful" (St. Paul), as
an offertory, and another anthem. "Teach
Me, O Lord," was rendered by the choir.
The postludo was Rossini's "Cujus Anl
mam."
The eminent d'vlne. Rev. Wayland Hoyt.
CD., of Philadelphia chose the twenty
third psalm for his text. His sermon, brief
ly summarised, was as follows: "The man
who wrote that psalm must have gone
through many of the trials and borne some
of the burdens of life. It belongs to that
dark period in David's life when he fled
from Absalom, sccompanled by a few faith
ful followers, to the east of the river Jor
dan, where, as he thought of his own life's
h'story, his heart took fire and his thoughts
found expression In this psalm."
Rev. Hoyt read the entire psalm, Inter
preting the rod as being the Lord's defense
and direction, and the staff as the shep
herd's crook, with which he guided h!?
flock. "There are six things which David
Says the Lord will give the man who trusts
him—the rest of forgiveness, relnvigora
,Mo», restoration, guidance, presence in ex
tremity and surprising mercy."
Ths Ascension
■ ftwe. David Walk. In the Church of
Christ an Bfghth street nesr Central ay-
P|ttMe, read the last clause of First Timothy.
ispjbajl aad tnm tenth and eleventh verses of
Act* I, and announced as the subject of,
his sermon the "Ascension of Jesus."
"In everything Jesus Is our forerunner.
Born, toiled, suffered, died, burled, raised
from the dead, ascended to heaven—all this
has been and will be the history of every
soul redeemed by his blood. Hl* life on
earth was aa human a* any other life
ever lived. As he stood In th* shadow of
the cross he uttered a cry for home. He
says to tha - ather, 'I glorified thee
on the earth, having accomplished the
work which thou haat given me to do . . .
but now I come to the*.' The Bon of Mary
dwell* In light unapproachable. This Is
ths apotheosis of human nature. And.
speaking of the saved, he says: T desire
that where I am they also may be with me.'
Heaven 1* both a condition and a place;
subjectively It Is the one, objectively tt is
the other. The kingdom of God here is
righteousness and peace and Joy In the
Holy Spirit, but there It is a 'place.' Igo
to prepare a place for you.' Triumph over
death and the grave, ascension and future
recognition, are Involved In the ascension
of Jesus."
Th* Greatest Commandment
Rev. A. A. Rice, the pastor, spoke at the
Unlversallst church yesterday morning on
"The Great Commandment," Matthew,
xit:B2: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with all thy heart." In brief he said:
"This command I* forceful, not because
Jesus called It the greatest of all, though
* his saying this must corroborate the truth,
nor because it Is the arbitrary flat of God,
though we must believe that God's will Is
behind It; but because It* fore* comes
from the fact that It Is a law touohlng man
Just as certainly and completely as the law
of gravitation touches his physical being.
Just as the commands of the decalogue are
•tamped as law Into the very nature of man
and as the axiomatic truths of the beati
tudes touch him as a part of his being, so
this command to love the Lord God Is an
Inherent law of the spiritual universe the
relations of which man canot disregard.
"The importance of this law Is observed,
first. In Its necessity. Again, Its magnitude
1* known when we see its relations to that
mania for mammon worship which so uni
versally possesses man and stands In the
way of his spiritual life. The worship of
God, as the natural outcome of love for
him, which brings Into exercise the higher
and enduring faculties of the being Is dia
metrically opposed to the worship of mam
mon which makes use of temporary human
forces and absorbs the real life of man."
Against "Faith Healing"
The Rev. F. M. Larldn, pastor of Uni
versity church, preached yesterday morning
|on "Prayer for the Sick," from II Cor. xli.,
Bth and 9th verses. The apostle Paul's ex
ample In praying to be relieved from his af
fliction is a model for all Chrtatlans. Paul's
example and teachings are, however. In
contrast with modern "divine healers." He
does cot make th* atonement cover bodily
diseases, or make healing a fundamental
doctrine of Christianity. The apostle
James speaks of prayer for the sick in con
nection) wlthj a medicinal remedy common
at that day. This remedy has been per
verted Into sacramental annolnttng. Jesus
himself never forbade the use of remedies.
When he opened the eyes of the blind man
he used clay and commanded the man. to
go and wash. There Is no statement In
scripture which can be rightly used to for
bid the use of medicines.
Spiritual Cravings
At the First Baptist church yesterday
the pastor, Rev. Joseph Smale preached
from the text found In Pa. lxlll, 1-2, "David's
thirst for God," saying in part: "The text,
first of all. Is a cry to Go*. Bereft of crown,
of palace, of power, of a loyal people, of a
son's love, he reveled in the thought that
God still remained for him. Godliness Is
a life whose earthly pulsation depends upon
the trend of ths soul's desires. At man's
seemingly last extremity it Is often said
that he has only God to look to, as though
God was the fag end of comfort. If you
have longings for spiritual prosperity, with
an ardor Independent of earthly surround
ings, as David's were, so your cravings
will be satisfied."

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 27, 1898
IMMENSE OVERFLOW
HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE TURNED
FROM BAPTIST CHURCH
Excursions to Mount Lows, Catallna,
Santa Monica and San Diego.
A Reception
It was found necessary to hold two over
flow meetings last night In order to provide
for the thousands of Endeavorers and
others who .gathered at the First Baptist
church at the last meeting. The conven
tion practically closed on Saturday even
ing, last night's session being purely a re
ligious gathering.
< The meeting at 6 oclock had an attend
ance that filled every chair.
The convention services opened with the
"Convention March, "followed by a con
tralto solo, Gounod's "The King of Love
My Shepherd Is." The chorus sang "The
Radiant Morn Has Passed Away," and
Prof. Morrison sang a solo. Dr. Warren
F. Day led the devotionals and the orches
tra played "The Pilgrims' Chorus." Rev.
Wayland Hoyt delivered the evening's ad
dress, his subject being "Soul Saving."
Leonard Merrill, the retiring state pres
ident, made a short speech of appreciation
of the many courtesies extended htm dur
ing his year In office, singling out Joseph
Radford, chairman of the '98 committee,
his pastor, A. W. Rider, and his wife as
especial representatives for others. Mr.
Merrill announced that his alternate, E.
C. Gilbert of San Francisco, would attend
the Nashville International convention.
A consecration meeting followed, which
closed the services of the convention with
the "Mlzpah" benediction.
One feature of the Endeavor conventions
of former years was noticeably absent in
the one Just closed—that of street singing.
At other conventions the delegates have
been quartered at down town hotels, mak
ing street car travels In bodies a common
occurrence, and "Blessed Sunshine" and
other Endeavor favorites were constantly
floating through the air. The reason for
the discontinuance of this practice is given
in the promiscuous scattering of the visit
ors who were generally entertained this
year In private homes, for which courtesy
the delegates express heartiest apprecia
tion, and they are one and all full of praise
for Los Angeles' hospitality.
The Week's Excursions
Hundreds of the Endeavorers will re
main In the city throughout the week and
excursions have been arranged for their
entertainment every day.
This morning the entire Alameda contin
gent, to the number of seventy-five, and
many others of the Endeavorers, will start
for Mt. Lowe, and on their return this
evening a reception will be tendered them
at the chamber of commerce. On Tuesday
a trip has been arranged to Catallna, where
a 7 oclock p. m. prayer meeting will be
held aboard the boat at the Island. On
Wednesday excursions to Santa Monica,
Long Beach and Redondo will be the order
of the day. Thursday has been set aside
for sight-seeing about the city, and Friday
will be the day of the excursion to San
Diego.

TWO MORE TUNAS
Tha Gamy Fish Furnish Sport at
Avalon
AVALON, June 26.—The steamer Falcon
brought over ninety-two people yesterday,
the largest number tor a regular trip so far
this season.
Yesterday was a good day for tuna, or
rather for the people who went out to catch
them. The launch sunbeam took out Mr.
Foster andl Mr. George Johnson, and each
got a fish. Mr. Johnson made the first
strike about a mile from Long point, and
brought his fish to gaff In Just eleven min
utes from the time that he cast off flrom the
launch. The second' strike fell to Mr. Fos
ter, and was a very gamey fish, and took
am hour and ten minutes to kill. At one
time it looked as though tihe fish was going
to make Its escape and take about 900 feet
of new 31 Cutty hunk line with him. The
reel slipped from Its seat, and at tlht same
time the tuna made a long run, and before
he could be stopped he had run out all but
about ten feet of the line. This fish is a
record for small boat tuna fishing.
The boat that Mr. Foster was In was a
twelve-foot, round-bottom, double-end
oanoe, one of those little cranky things
that will upset on tihe slightest provocation
In the .hands of any but an experienced
boatman.
Mr. Frazler got his thlrdifish last night off
GaMagers. It was a small one, but game
for all that. It took Just an hour of good,
hard work to land his 46 pounds of tuna
steaks. This Is the smallest tuna taken so
far this year.
The schooner Frelda arrived yesterday
from San Diego and Long Beach. She
mads the run from' San D.ego to Long
Beach In a little over twenty-four hours, and
the run from Long Beach to Avalon In three
hours and a half, at good time as the
steamer makes. Messrs. Koch and Burke
are the owners, and sail her themselves.
They are accompanied by their families.
Mr. W. P. Dunham and wife and Mr. G.
A. White-ford caught twenty-seven barra
cuda on rod and reel from the launch Puff
ing Pig yesterday afternoon.

BOUND THEM ALL OVER
RIVERSIDE'S DISTRICT ATTOR
NEY SETTLES A ROW
An Orange Picker Helps Himself to
Soma Other People's
Clothing
RIVERSIDE, June 26.—District Attorney
QUI and Court Stenographer Felton went
to Banning yesterday for the purpose of
conducting an examination in the cases of
John and W. W. Thorn and Sam Blach,
who had a row over a lease of some land,
during which threats were made by the dif
ferent parties to do some shooting. Accord
ing to the story told by Mr. Oill upon his
return all the parties were about equally
guilty, and the court arriving at that con
clusion, it was decided to put all three men
under 1250 bonds each to keep the peace, and
all is serene in the Pass city again. There
was a larceny charge In connection with
the row also, but this was dismissed. This
charge grew out of the fact that Black
charged the Thorns, who are his tenants,
with having killed and sold his (Black's)
hogs.
W. Pennington, an orange picker who has
spent the winter here, is now In the county
Jail, where he awaits examination on a
charge of burglary. Pennington decided, as
the orange picking season was about over,
he would clear out» for the" northern citrus
belt, but before leaving concluded to fit
himself out in the clothes line; so he broke
into the room of the proprietor of the Japa
nese restaurant yesterday afternoon and
stole therefrom a quantity of clothing. Pen
nington then skipped out for Colton, but
the telephone had been brought into use,
and when the fugitive landed at that town

Legally Knocked Out

superior court yesterday knocked out the
Redlands Sunday ordinance, as regards
playing billiards, on the ground of its un
constitutionality, as It stopped a man's

man had as much right to play billiards on
Sunday as on any other day. Riverside
has been waiting for this decision, In order
to pass a similar ordinance If It held good.
A letter has Just been received from
Frank A. Reed, who, with four others,

miles from the mouth of the river they
were about to descend; about 2100 mile;
from home, and 150 miles from the diggings.
He states the sun sets there at 9:16 p. m.
and rises some time before morning, too
early for him to discover. They were to
take a little sloop to the mouth of the river
and row their little boat up to the locating
place.
