Following the ceremony Bishop
Conaty ascended to the platform and
delivered a short address, In which he
pointed out the work to be accom
plished by the building being erected.
He said In part:
"Next to the church is the parish
school, where the children are taught
their duties to God and fellow man.
After the church and school come the
parish societies, religious bodies of men
and women. With parish societies and
confraternities come others for social
and literary purposes. So we are
gathered here today to lay the corner
stone of this building, in which the
parish societies will meet.
' "In. one of the prayers which .was
bald three words were used, faith, fear
and brotherly love. It seems this cere
mony brings that lesson to us. After
all it is In the faith of God we lay this
corner stone. This building is an ex
pression of our faith— that we are not
merely men of the world, but first and
above all the children of God.
/'We also used the word fear but It
is not the fear that comes to the slave,
but which brings us closer to God by
making us feel that only in God can we
live. .'.,.. .
.."Brotherly love was also said. After
all the word of God Is love. The ono of
all words he would Imprint on every
child is 'love.' We cannot love God
unless we love our neighbor."

ADDRESS TO MEN AND BOYS
State Y. M. C. A. Secretary B. B. WIU
cox Addresses Rally Services
j Practically every seat was taken at
the Toung Men's Christian association
yesterday afternoon when State Secre
tary 8.8. Wllcox spoke to the general
rally meeting for men and boys. It was
another great day in local association
circles, and marked again the interest
which is being shown in the Sunday
afternoon meetings since the arrival of
the new general Secretary Luther.
Before the address the singing, in
which the large audience of men Joined
heartily, as they were led by Secretary
Luther and the chorus choir, aroused
Interest and enthusiasm.
Mr. Wilcox spoke from the text, "Be
it known to thee, oh King, that we will
not serve thy gods, nor worship the
golden image which thou has set up."
He spoke in substance as follows:
"There Is no grander sight in this life
than to see an imperiled man in the
face of danger, stand for his conviction
of what he knows is right. It is a fine
sight when a man has the courage of
his convictions regardless of what the
result may be. Such courage of con
viction is what we see in this case of
Daniel and his friends, who dared the
kingly authority when they refused
to worship the golden Image. These
same men had displayed the same
courage of conviction earlier in their
history when, as college youths, they
had refused to drink of the king's wine
or eat of the king's meat, and after
faring on pulse and water, were found
to be the fairest of the royal court. Re
ward came, as it always does, when
these young men were set In authority
over the affairs of Babylon. Reward
came again when the power of God pro
tected them when they were thrown in
the flery furnace after refusing to bow
the knee to the golden image. They
were men of conviction."
MAN IS OFFSPRING OF DEITY

pravlty of God's Image
The platform of The Fellowship was
occupied yesterday by Reynold B.
lilight, assistant minister, who took
for his subject, "Gods in the Chry
tails." He said In part:
"Man's greatest problem Is himself.
What am I? Whence came I? Whither
do I go? These questions must be an
swered by the race at large, and by
every man for himself.

ture and you go far toward making
him one. The remembrance of this
teaching haa discouraged many a
young man battling with his first
great temptation. It has disheartened
many a prodigal when hope has bright

pulses toward righteousness.
"But tell a man he, is essentially
good and you have started him toward
the right path. Children taught from
earliest years that they are by nature
children of light, develop naturally into
good men and women.
"The doctrine of total depravity is
foreign to the recorded teachings of
Christ. He proclaimed the dignity at
man, his divine sonshlp. He said to
man, 'You are divine. Infinite possi
bilities repose in you. Godlike powers
lie dormant within you. You are at
present unconscious of those powers.
You are asleep. But I take your hand
In mine and I say "Awake, thou that
sleepest Awake! Arise to a life of
purity, of progress and of love. Awake
to a consciousness of your sonshlp, for
you are the child of the Most High.
His life surges through you. You are
destined to great things. You are
divine." ' "
"SIN" IS THEME OF REV. DAY
Its Nature and Results Are Explained
by the Pastor
Last night at the First Congrega
tional church the pastor, Rev. William
Horace Day, gave the sixth sermon on
The Teachings of Jesus. The topic
was "Sin, Its Nature and Results."
"Sin, a missing of the mark— a char
acter that has failed to reach the plan
God set for it. ""If we fail to believe the
right ideas we will fall to do right
acts, and repeated failure to act rightly
leads to a sinful character. Concep
tions we hold produce conduct, and our
conceptions coupled with our conduct
results in character. Success in mak
ing money in this city depends upon
the things the money seeker believes.
If he believes in Los Angeles he will
act accordingly whether he buys lands,
erects buildings, starts business enter
prises or constructs street car lines,
the men of most conspicuous success
have never lacked in faith. This is a
crude illustration of the true basis of
moral success or failure which Jesus
Insisted depended upon belief in him.
"The results of sin commands our in
terest. What did Jesus mean us to
understand would result from a sinful
life? There are ten passages In his
teaching that suggest the answer.
Jesus presents the future of the Binner
by means of six terms. Gehenna, outer
darkness, eternal fire, eternal punish
ment, hades, death.
"I think a careful study of all Jesus
did say will convince us that he was
not attempting to give a detailed pic
ture of a place or a method of punish
ment but I feel sure the reading of
these passages cannot fall to show that
he who loved us warns us with urgent
severity against the results of the sin
to which we so carelessly commit our
Psychic Science Lecturer Explains
Difference Between Science and
An "overflow" audience greeted Dr.
Alexander J. Mclvor-Tyndall at
Blanchard hall last evening, and the
announcement that the popular expon

to leave the city for a prolonged tour
of the country brought out protests of
regret that the interesting and instruct

of large audiences for nearly two years,
must be discontinued.' The evening's
program was opened by a brilliantly

"The power to penetrate solid sub

or physical senses, Into the invisible,

Continuing the speaker said:
"Although there Is a generally ac
cepted idea that clairvoyance and me
dlumshlp ore one and the same thing,
there Is a marked difference between
the two phenomena, scientifically con
sidered. A medium Is what the name
Implies— an instrument for the use of a
will, other than his own. A clairvoyant
Is one whose own soul faculties are de
veloped to the point where his vision
extends beyond the physical into the
mental and physical planes of activity.
The one is the result of a negative in
dividuality, the other is dependent upon
a positive will, and the power to subject
the physical senses to the control of
the higher ego or soul to which all
things may be known. One marked dif
ference between the phenomena of
'medlumshlp and that of independent
clairvoyance is found in the fact that
the medium, being an instrument con-<
trolled by the will of another, usually
knows nothing of what has transpired
while he or she is under the control of
another, upon again entering the ordin
ary state. His physical brain has been
used to convey the images or thoughts
or desires of anothev, and he himself,
Is unaware of all that has been trans

physical consciousness, through the

next Sunday evening he will bid adieu
to this city, so far as public lecture
work Is concerned, although he will
continue to give class Instruction at the

lessons to new students, as no one will
be admitted to instruction after Friday

PLEADS FOR DUMB BEASTS
Very Rev. Dr. Wllklns Tells of Man's
Duty to Animals
"The Rights of Animals" was the
topic of Very Rev. Dr. "Wllklns last
evening at St. Paul's Pro-cathedral.
Dr. Wllklns, In a logical way, brought
forth the rights of the dumb beasts In
an eloquent manner. He said In part:
"I want to plead for justice to our
poor relations of the lower order of life.
It seems to be generally assumed that
animals have no rights that we are
bound to respect, and that all our con
sideration for them must spring from
a pure generosity or perhaps super
abundant condescension. But all such
assumptions are radically unjust. They
are based upon Inordinate regard for
our own supremacy. But really we
have no supremacy or superiority of
which greatly to boast. Man may
regard himself as the lord of creation,
but he cannot on that account repudi
ate his obligations to the dumb serfs
on his estate. For we are all animals,
though men are more than animals.
All orders of creation are made by one
God; all share many common needs,
wants and feelings; all have rights
and are entitled to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness In the several
spheres of life and duty to which they
have been divinely assigned.
"Men will compass a continent to have
a shot at a bear, deer, stag or ele
phant; and If they make a 'kill' they
are as proud as though they had won a
decoration. And many times It is not
Instant death to these noble animals,
but prolonged agony. First, wounds,
then starvation, pain and lingering
death, merely to please a man who
wishes to hit a mark that shows It is
hit by jumping, and a thrill of pain.
"The whole round world la traversed
by men of the English-speaking race
who seem to find their pleasure In giv
ing pain to their poor relations— the
animals beneath them. ', ;
"The average boy is naturally a bar
barian—thoughtless and cruel. He can
not see a bird sitting on a fence or a
tree without flinging something at It
He cannot see a cat, that does not be
long to his own household, without
slinging a stone at it. He can not see a
dog without shouting "ky, yl, yi,' at it
to see it run, if he does not do some
thing more cruel. The pain of the ani
mals is not lessened because it is given
thoughtlessly. That fact every boy
should be made to remember and heed.
It should be made one of the first les
sons of every boy in the land, an es
sential part of the education to be ham
mered Into him if needs be, whether
that education be of the school, Sunday
school or of the home.
"I have wished I could make the boy
and the cat change places, and let the
boy see bow he liked it. If I had the
magician* wand . of , transformation, I
would cnanga all such people and chii
dren to the animals they abuse, for Just
a little while, that they might learn,
since they cannot or will not learn In
Any other way, an animal's rights. One
of the beat things that can be done for
children la to let them know the mem
bers of the animal world and teach
them that animals are God's creatures
and have rights which we are bound to
