VAST CROWDS HEAR SUNDAY THOUSANDS ARE UNABLE TO OBTAIN ADMISSION EVANGELIST WEARS HIMSELF OUT TALKING Flays Irreligion and Vice with Ap. parently Inexhaustible Energy, but Finally Is Compelled to Stop Ten thousand persons filled the Shrine auditorium last night and heard Evangelist "Billy" Sunday preach as only "Billy" Sunday can. They listened with deep interest to the forcible ser mon, told in plain but expressive language. Crowds began to arrive early, and long before it was time for the noted evangelist to appear every seat was filled and standing room was at a pre mium. Several thousand persons were turned away, and hundreds who were lucky enough to obtain entrance were compelled to leave when the aisles were cleared by officers from the University station. • Sunday was greatly troubled by the noise caused by those who were stand ing and changing their positions fre quently, and it was with the utmost difficulty that he spoke loud enough to make himself heard. After contending with the interrup tions for more than an hour he began to grow hoarse, and finally ended his talk by saying it was impossible for him to contfnue, as the strain on his throat was too severe. The evangelist asked all to bow their heads in prayer, but before he had spoken a dozen words many began to leave. They made so much noise that the prayer was stopped, Sunday rapped for order and when at last he could be heard, severely condemned those who had proved so inconsiderate of others. Insurance on His Soul "I am a Christian and have lived according to the teachings of the Bible," said Sunday. "I have insur ance on my soul. Suppose death ends it all. That is all right. I have not lost anything by living a good clean life. Persons say, 'Well, I may die, but there might not be a hell.' Now, if death does not end it all and there is a hereafter I am prepared because I have lived a Christian life. "A merchant insures his store against fire. The store may never burn down, but if it does burn down he is prepared. Ships are compelled by law to carry a certain number of life preservers; the vessel may never be wrecked, but if it is wrecked the passengers and crew are prepared for it. "I was in Chicago some time ago and met a fellow on the street. I went up to him and said: 'Look here, my friend, are you a Christian?' He replied that he was, but said he never went to church or read the Bible. I talked with him a short time and then noticed he was wearing a Masonic emblem. I asked him if he was a Mason. He said he was and then I said to him: 'Sup pose you asked me if I was a Mason and I told you I was, but had never been inside a lodge or paid my dues, and knew nothing of the secret work^ but was a Mason simply because I be lieved in Masonry. You would say that I was a liar.' He replied he would. 'Then,' I said, 'you say you are a Chris tian because you believe in Christianity and yet you never attend church or read the Bible. You are as much a liar as I would be should I tell you I am a Mason simply because I believed in it.' " Sunday told numerous stories and from time to time evoked great ap plause by his earnest endeavors to show his audience the simple path to travel in order to become a Christian. He spoke with difficulty at times, but his enthusiasm never left him and he went into the most minute details when telling a story to illustrate a point. Every Meeting Crowded The auditorium was crowded to suf focation at the morning and afternoon services, and Sunday was obviously much inconvenienced by the noise. He declared he would not speak unless there was absolute quiet, and when one woman, enthused by his remarks, shouted several times Mr. Sunday asked her to "cut it out." The service yesterday morning was for both men and women, and Sunday took for his text I John, 3-9. He said, in part: "Many church members are so doubt ful about their religion. They hope that they are Christians! How would it sound for a married person to say *I hope that I am married?' Why not be able to say squarely that you are Christians? "You have no right to call yourself a child of God when you have boose] on your sideboard and drink it with] your friends. It is surprising how! many women of wealth are booze drinkers. They are mere shells of hot air. If a plague should wipe them out, not much would be lost. ( "I do not propose to cry peace when there is no peace. Tear down the false prophets. "I have no kick against education.! but it should not take the place ofi rock-bound, good common sense, which I is often apt to be the case. With Fistic Vehemence "I allow no man to slander my Christ any more than my earthly friends. 1 would smite him with the same fistic vehemence. I had rather lose my soul in hell than lower the standard of the religion of Jesus Christ. I must preach the gospel as I understand it. "When a man is thoroughly of God he will not need to carry his religion in his vest pocket. It should show itself all over him. "Woe* to the man when no one' speaks a word against him! He is a weak specimen of humanity. If a man is a fighter in a good cause he will tome up against his enemies. "I may not suit many of you in my talk, but I shall preach the gospel to you as I understand it and in my own way, if I have to move my family back tc Chicago on a wheelbarrow. This gospel is as old as the hills, and not my get-up, and many a better man than I has preached it ahead of me. "Never mind if you don't know the how of everything before you, pitch into it and do some good. You know the wind blows, but you don't know how it does. Any fool knows how to dig a hole in the ground and plant an orange tree, but he cannot make it grow. Dollars Hard to Get "When a circus comes to town and takes many thousands of dollars away with it you think nothing of it; but •when a few thousand dollars are called for for religious work it mounts up high in the minds of the people. "There is more damnable heresy in Los Angeles than in any other city I know of." The afternoon service was for men only, and for the second time the building was filled with an interested congregation, it being estimated that 6000 men were in attendance. Sunday early evinced his intention Three Alleged Slayers of Former Senator and Governor Who Is to Be a Witness Stjcol r-twcAW r cooper 6^V?

He then sailed in and kept at it until he was completely exhausted and was compelled to close his address. He was in his element when deliver ing his characteristic broadsides against the saloon. "I challenge you." he said, "to men tion any good coming from the damn able business of the saloon. I will say, however, that they are good in their place, but their place is hell." DESCRIBES DAYS OF IRISH LAND LEAGUE PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OF EVICTING PEASANTS Lecturer Who Served with British Colors During Anti-Rent Troubles Gives Reminiscences of Parnell Jack Wood lectured before the Los Angeies Liberal club last evening-, giv ing personal experiences of his life with the British army in India and Ireland, in which latter country his regiment was employed during the troubles that attended the refusal of the tenants to pay their rent. The hall was crowded to suffocation, both the hallways being filled with those Mho stood patiently throughout the address and subsequent discussion. The speaker dwelt at length on his experiences at the time of Parnell's ar rest, having been sent to apprehend him during the night at Currah camp. He described at length the excitement prevalent, as Parnell was to address a monster meeting. The lampposts were painted green and on every hand was to be seen the motto "Long Live Par nell, our future king." Parnell, how ever, did not arrive, having been ar rested in Dublin following the procla mation of the Land league. With great pathos the speaker de scribed the scenes he had witnessed while his regiment was engaged in the eviction of the tenants, and he gave many appalling details, saying that within a distance of forty-eight milea he had counted 500 roofless houses and that the poverty of those who were turned out of their homes was unspeak able. The lakes were full of silver trout and on the coast he had seen a shoal of mackerel the size of Los An geles, yet the people were starving, not having the means of catching what would have supplied them with ample food. To Stop the Troops The scenes that followed the mani festo isued by the Land league and the coercion bill to which it gave rise, were dealt with most graphically, the speak er showing how the peasantry dug trenches an<? felled trees so that they should fall across the road and stop the advance of troops. The British government is now en deavoring to right things by legislation under which the peasant is given the opportunity of purchasing the farm he tills on sixty-eight years' time, paying interest at 3 1-3 per cent on the capital advanced. Mr. Wood expressed no confllence in the success of this experi ment, saying that they would eventu ally find themselves in the position now occupied by the cotton farmers of Texas. The absentee landlords really benefit. He paid a special compliment to Michael Davitt, who had served many years in prison for his devotion to the principle of the land for the people. Mr. Wood expressed anything but a complimentary opinion of the virtues of British rule in India, saying that the government took from that country $150,000,000 per annum, which it ex pended in salaries and pensions, and gave the conquered natives nothing in return. LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 15, 1909. QUENTIN MAY BE MADE NEW MAN OPERATION APPEARS TO BE WORKING WONDERS SCIENTISTS MUCH INTERESTED IN THE OUTCOME Patient at County Hospital Has Roused from Former Lethargy and No Longer Talks Dis connectedly Doctors, lawyers and others who have' made a study of criminology are | evincing the deepest interest in the re- j suit of the operation performed at the county hospital on the skull of John C. Quentin more than a month ago. Quentin is now at the county hos pital, ostensibly acting in the capacity of nurse, but in reality for the purpose of being kept under observation. Two weeks nave elapsed since he was placed in the institution by Judge Wil bur, following a discharge by the lu nacy commission. During that time, according to Fred J. Spring, Quentin's attorney, the improvement in his cli ent's condition, and especially the change in his ideas of right and wrong, has been marked. Quentin's specialty in criminal work was the issuing of fictitious checks. Through the efforts of Mr. Spring hoj was placed on probation by Judge | Wilbur several months ago. A few weeks later he was rearrested, charged with the passing of bad paper. This braaen violation of the provisions of j the probationary law and the apparent! inability of Quentin's mind to remain j on one subject for any length of time j caused the attorney "to make an in-1 vestigation. The result was the dis-1 covery of a small dent in the skull, | caused by an injury in November, I 1907. This was removed by physicians at the county hospital. Change Is Phenomenal "Since the taking away of the pres sure on Quentin's brain," said Mr. j Spring yesterday, "the change in his appearance and actions is phenome- j r.al. His eye is bright and his step brisk. Before the operation he usually had the appearance of being in a state of lethargy and he talked in a ram bling and disinterested manner. All! this is entirely changed. "Where no reason for committing, crime is apparent, as in this .rase," j continued Mr. Spring, "I believe a! thorough investigation into the previ-i ous life on the accused person should | be made. This is the second time my. theory has proved correct. I defended! Rolla Robe, the accomplice of Dan j Mesk-il, and inquiry regarding his ca reer developed the fact that when a youth he had been subject to epileptic) fits. That discovery and the placing; of it before the jury is the only thing,! I believe, that prevented a death sen-1 tence." % Montana Without Gamblers HELENA, Mont.. Feb. 14.—With the signing of the race track bill by Gov ernor Norris the state will be without any form of licensed gambling except during fair weeks, at which races are to be held throughout the state. Tlid bill has passed both houses of the leg islature and will be sent to the gover nor early this week. The new law is entirely satisfactory to the anti-racing element of the state. All Down on the Umpire "In a football scrimmage you can't always tell whether it is a half-back or who is at the bottom of the heap of humanity," remarked the Observer of Events and Things: "but if it is a base ball game it is a pretty safe bet that the under fellow is the umpire."— Yonkers Statesman. COOPERS' TRIAL TOPIC OF MANY FIGHT WILL BE BITTER AND LONG DRAWN PROMINENT FAMILIES PITTED AGAINST EACH OTHER Governor of Tennessee Is Expected to Be One of First Witnesses Ex. amined—Case Promises Sensations NASHVILLE, Term., Feb. 14.—With the approach of Tuesday, the day for the actual taking of testimony in the trial of Colonel Cooper and his son for the murder of former Senator Carmack, the people of Tennessee are evincing a remarkable interest in developments, and there is much speculation as to the defense to be adopted. The examination of talesmen has I failed to reveal the probable nature of ! the plea, although six weeks have j been passed in plying questions to pros pective jurors. Reports in Nashville today indicate the fight is to be one of the most bit ter and long drawn in the criminal history of the south. Prominent families, embittered by fatal feuds, are pitted against each other, and whole communities seem to divided, one against the other, so far as sentiment is concerned. It is expected one of the first men summoned to testify before the jury will be Governor Patterson. There is much anxiety to know just what part the governor will play in the case, or already has played. A rare array of talent is represented in the counsel of both sides, and from i the standpoint of attorneys the case will be no less remarkable than that ! of Harry Thaw in New York. Two Hunters Killed SAN RAFAEL. Feb. 14.—Two hun ters met accidental death today while duck hunting on the marshes near San Rafael. Domingo Almeida, a Portu guese, 20 years old. after getting from one rowboat into aonther, grasped his shotgun by the barrel to draw it to him and the hammer naught on the gunwale of the boat, discharging the weapon and the full load of coarse duck shot tearing a lar^e hole in his breast. John S. Dempsey Avent out hunting this afternoon hi a leaky boat on one of the Inlets of the bay and was drowned. Agreeably Disappointed Church—So your wife save you a box of cigars for Christmas?

They will be compelled to remain in their places until 8 o'clock this morn ing, when the new students will be ad mitted. Those who contended with the dis comforts of holding their places and remaining out in the chill night air, so that they might be on hand in time to be assured of a seat at the school, ara Samuel Smith, 1356 South Grand ave nue; Edwin Love joy, 1818 Magnolia street; Arthur Fallandy, 324 California street, and Robert Rainey, 315 North Broadway. There is not enough room in the school to accommodate all students who seek admittance. "First come, first served," is the rule, and those who en dure the discomforts* of standing in line and holding their places during the long hours of the nights are rewarded for their persistency by obtaining the coveted admittance. The boys passed the night on the steps of the building, and obtained a few hours' sleep rolled in a large rug which some one had provided. They whiled away a part of the night by singing, but a passing policeman with revolver and flashlight drawn, paid them a visit and warned them to keep quiet. Long Line Forms Yesterday morning other students be gan to arrive, and at 4 o'clock yester day afternoon 141 were standing in line. The first girls to appear were Hazel Ramey of 2647 La Salle street and her chum, Hazel Cliff of 2707 La Salle street. They left their homes be fore the cars were running yesterday morning, but reached the sqhoolhouse without any inconvenience. While all students who wish to bu enrolled can be cared for at two other high schools, the young people much prefer to endure discomforts in order to be enrolled at the Polytechnic. There are said to be several advantages over the other schools, although the studies are practically the same. Today is the beginning of a new term, and the registrations and en rollments begin. The system adopted by the faculty to expedite the handling of the students to be enrolled is such that little time is consumed in enter ing- all that there is room for. The students pass before three com mittees. The first body consists of five persons and is termed the "entrance committee." It examines the creden tials of the students and passes them on to the next committee, consisting of heads of departments. This commit tee also examines the credentials and notes the "O X" of the entrance body. The students then pass along to the third committee, by which they are as signed to classes. Must Have Credentials The students must have their pro motion cards and vaccination certifi cates, and the one who is so unfortu nate as to have left his or her carl or certificate at home must get it the best way he or she can. If no relatives are on hand and there is no one they can send after the required credential?, then the student must go and get them thus losing his or her place in line. According to those familiar with the situation it Is thought there will be more clamors for admittance this morning than there were at the be ginning of the same term this time last year, when about 700 students were In line the morning of registration. In order that the students may not be exposed to the chill night air a portion of the halls just inside the en trance to the building has been roped off and chairs have been provided. When 2000 students are registered no more will be placed on the list, and those who were not so fortunate as to be admitted will be sent to the Olive street school, where thessa c studies except the special and manual work are taught. Last year those who remained in lin» the night before registration num bered about 70. This morning It Is thought, this number will have been trebled. Financial Review NEW YORK, Feb. 14.—The semi-stagnant stock market of last week reflected the growing torpor of the speculative spirit and the determination to await the clearer out lines of the business future before entering on further stock market commitments The extreme dullness of the traaing proved to be not incompatible with a firm tone, from which it was Inferred that owners of stocks were content to hold them for lack of op portunity to market them on favorable terms and while awaiting a revival in busi ness and speculative activity. Such strength as last week's market showed was attributed largely to the demand from the bears to cover up the short commitments made the week before on the supposition that a pinch in the money market might follow the heavy depletion of the cash reserves of the clear ing house banks, and also that the anti- Japajiese feeling in California might afford a subject for disturbance of the markets. As these suppositions were shown to be ground less, the bears covered their shorts and prices rose. The fiscal operations of the government offer the only likely source of disturbance. As for the Japanese question, the rise in Japanese government bonds day after day while the discussion was in progress was taken as the truer Index of the situation by the financial world. The final action of the California legisla ture will be accepted as full confirmation of this opinion. Foreign influences were al=o distinctly encouraging, the visit of the Brit ish monarchs to Berlin, the disbandment of the Bulgarian reserves and the agreement between Germany and France over Morocco all serving to dissipate anxieties over inter national delations. Financial opinion has settled down to an acceptance of a period of delay In trade re vival. Returns from practically all depart ments confirm the halt in activity. The iron and steel business is asserted by the leading trade authorities to be living in part on orders taken in November and December. Orders are held up pending the adoption of the revised duties on imports The same complaint calls for many other mercantile lines. Estimates of refined cop per on hand published by the newly organ ized Copper Producers' association, showed a less formidable surplus than rumors had indicated, but the January production was shown to be 22,000,000 pounds In excess of deliveries and the stocks In smelter hand" were said not to he Included in the esti mate and to be very large. The lethargy of the stock market is re garded as due to these conditions. Mean time the meager demand for banking facili ties in commercial lines leaves room for large bond operations and constant new issues succeeded each other in the market and are rapidly absorbed. Cash prizes will go every week to the school boys and girls of, the southwest. Write 250 words about the birthday anniver saries of •February and send it to Aunc Laurie, care this paper.
