Rev. Father Wyman's
Views on Emotional
Is Either Spiritual Intoxication
Or Evidence of Unsound
Says That True R ligion Consists oi
Obeying the Will of G;d as Far
as Possible.
Rev. Father Wyruan of St. Mary's
Church, a man generous in his views on
t he idiosyncrasies of human nature, and
who has been a student of the Bible for
many years, coincides with Professor
Jordan, president of Stanford University,
in bia view that "a revival of religion in
which men lose their reason is a form of
drunkenness no more worthy of respect
than the kind which lies in the uutter."
"Altnoagh Professor Jordan couched
his views in lerms stronger than the occa
sion really called for. " said Father Wv
man las>t c Yen Ing, "1 believe that in the
main he is correct in his convictions.
Emotional religion, which u>ually ac
companies revivals, rests on a false
•'The confession of Saul, who was miracu
lously stricken blind and again restored
to sight when he accepted the religion of
Oirist, is given by Methodists a too uni
versal application. On this miracle they
have their argument that all who would
become good Christians must undergo a
change of heart, a spiritual revolution;
must be Hooded with religious salvation,
without which they never can be truly
■Tins I believe to be a false view.
Many of the best Christians never ex
perienced any religious emotions. The
essence of relicion consists of keepinc the
I'oranundmeni' and in striving 10 do the
will of God. A man who aims to avoid
sin and to obey the will of God as far as
possible has, tn my opinion, the best evi
dence of v tru« Christian spirit.
"Mv own exronence as a missionary in
the Catholic church has taught me that in
mir church those people who are the most
emotional ami readily and easily weep
over tneir sins are frequently not ttieones
who prove afterward the sincerity of their
repentance by their work*.
"I have met persons who seemed in
capable of receiving religious impressions,
yet who from a rational consideration o f
the f.'re*l eternal truths of gospel and a
:irm determination to avoid evil have be
come thoroughly devout Christians.
"Now regarding Professor Jordan's re
mark that religious enthusiasm is a form
of spiritual drunkenness, there are people
who under the Influence of Methodism
manifest actions that would indicate that
they were the victim * of a deranged intel
"These are the people I believe Proles

How They Will Observe the
Anniversary of the Opening
of Their Home.
Vocal and Instrumental Music and a
Ball in an Artistically D corated
Hall Next Thursday Night.
The Native Sons and Daughters who
are members of the local parlors, many

of the anniversary of the brilliant event
given on the occasion of the opening of
the new building.
The committee of arrangements having
charge of the matter has for yome time
past Deen actively engaged in making
preparations, and these have all been
completed, and each individual member
feels that what he has done in the prepara
tions will tend to make this the greatest
of all social events niven by the Native
S?ons of the Golden West.
The main hall in which the concert and
dance will be given will be decorated as it
never has been decorated before. There
will be a harmony of colors that will bring
out in beautiful contrast "Old Glory," the

The association was organized in April,
1893, to build a home for the parlors of the
Native Sons of the Golden West in this
City, nv.il the result of their work is the
beautiful building on Mason street, a
iuoiAiment to the perpetuity of the order.
From the very inception of the fraternity,
born in the spirit ol patriotism on the 4th
day of July, 1875, its most earnest sup
porters cherished the hope that some day
its members might be gathered beneath
their own roof-iree and that pride of own
ership might stimulate their zeal in the
work of me order, and its good influ
ences expand thence until they had be-
OOmfl a blessing to the people of our State.
At various times delegates from the differ
ent parlors met and organized, with the
objectof interestingcapital in the erection
of a hall suited to the needs of the order,
but their efforts were not crowned with
the merited success.
Undaunted by the failure of the pioneers
in this work, the present Hall Association
was organized, and, under the guidance
of a zealous and untirine board of direc
tors, the parlors of the Native Sons and
their members were quickly interested,
the necessary funds raised and the splen
did ball erected upon Mason street. Feb
ruary 22, 1886, aside from its patriotic
associations as the anniversary of Wash
ington's natal day, is fraucht with un
usual pride to the members of the Hali
Association, in that it witnessed the lay
ing of the cornerstone of their magniti
cent building. On February it, l*i*>, the
labors ot the mechanics and artisans were
finally hnished, and, with imposing and
beautiful ceremonies, the hall was dedi
cated to the patriotic and charitable ob
jects of the order.
The history of the association since
then has been one of marked success.
Within tho beautiful iodgerooms of me
building aie brought together seventeen
parlors of the Native Sons, h've of the
parlors of the Native daughters and many
of the other leading fraternal societies of
the City.

bell in the case of Thomas Kackie (»lini
Costigan) and Frank Smith, charged with
grand larceny, and by an article that ap
peared in the Cnroniclo yesterday morn
ing in connection with John Drachbar
(alias Frank Bonner), which redacted
upon Judge Campbell.
When the two Judges met in the cor
ridor after their courts had adjourned
yesterday, Judge Campbell chargeu Judgu
Low with instigating the article in the
Cnronicle, and Judge Low retorted by
telling him to mind his own business and
not to interfere with cases in his court.
The controversy became warm, and At
torney Ben Napthaly added fuel to the
flames by making a personal remark about
Judge Low. Finally the two angry jurists
parted and no blood was shed.
An aftermath of the quarrel happened in
Judge Joacuimsen's court. Attorney Clar
ence Gray rose to a question of privilege
and told Judge Joacbimsen that Napthaly
bad grossly insuited Judge Low and as
Napthaiy was not an officer of the court
he should not be permitted to plead in
the court.
Jubt then a case in which Napthaiy was
attorney for the defendant was called.
Napthaiy came into court and the Judge
told him he could not practice in the
Napthaiy was indignant. He denied
that be was not an otticer and said that
h.s attorneys, Judges Maguire and Car

barment by the Superior Coart was illegal
and would be set aside by the Supreme
Clarence Gray said he could prove his
assertion and would submit an affidavit
showing by the records that he was right.
Napthaiy turned his wrath upon Gray
and there was a scene of the wildest ex
citement. "Murderer" and "liar" were the
words mat were bandied between the two
angry attorneys and finally the Judge or
dered Sergeant Duncan to place the two
attorneys under arrest. Then there was
quietness and me Judge ordered Nartha y
to leave the court, telling Sergeant Dunf
can to arrest him if he appeared asa:n. .
Napthaly left the court mmterinc to

turned round and hurled a parting *hot at

made a rush for the door, followed by the
sergeant, but Napthaly n«ul disappeared'
