Opis: The Pacific Unitarian (Classic Reprint) - Author Unknown

Excerpt from The Pacific Unitarian
Then there is seen her great cosmopolitanism, and every race and nationality, every degree of station, mingle in delightful democracy-well dressed, good natured, independent, and apparently happy. There is something in the scene to foster faith and hope.
Market Street in San Francisco is hardly appreciated by those most familiar with it. It is one of the noble highways of the world, stretching broad and beautiful from the classic Ferry Building toward the lovely Twin Peaks that crown the range that deflects it to the south. As one now travels its almost perfect pavement and notes the fine examples of the newer architecture so rapidly filling the gaps, it is hard to recall the dark days when all one saw spelled ruin. No one who, as he wended his way from the ferry 011 returning to the city from brief exile in Oakland, was stopped by some self-constituted officer and asked to throw bricks to clear the roadway that teams might pass can forget the satisfaction he felt in that first humble act in the great work of rehabilitation that still goes on so encouragingly. It was the promise of a rich fulfillment.
A few weeks ago by a sad and inexplicable accident San Francisco lost one of its foremost citizens. Few men commanded more respect, enriched by admiration, than Philip N. Lilienthal. A man of strong will and uncommon ability, a trained banker, public-spirited, philanthropic, of kindly manner, handsome presence and personal charm, he was trusted and relied upon by all. Tie always was ready to do his part and he did it well. lie might have held any office in the gift of the city, but the only position he ever held was a trustee of the Free Public Library. It is related that when he returned from the East soon
after the earthquake and fire some one asked him what impressed him most on his return. After a moment he said impressively: "The look in the eyes of the people." He was a discerning man. He saw back of all material results the gleaming of the spirit that determines and controls.
There are some things, once considered essential, that we find we can do without. This presidential campaign has demonstrated that it is possible to conduct a contest without inducing high temperature. The fever of former like episodes was considered an incident to the disease, but it seems to have resulted from extraneous causes. The patient can keep calm if he makes up his mind to. and the disturbances subsides with the passage of time. Under the old practice the public was bled copiously, and then blistered with spell-binders, torch-light processions. Dirigo clubs, fireworks, and virulent attacks that ran from rum to Rome. No wonder we dreaded the quar-ternarv attacks of the presidential itch. But better methods have been lived into. Our mental state is more favorable to health. Frantic zeal for partisan sucess is now felt to be error. And we are serene in our faith that whichever Will is elected the way to prosperity will be open.
There are various standards by which sermons are judged-and these standards change from time to time. Some people judge them in proportion as they are felt to be sound. But even then there is divergence, and perhaps the larger number value the sermon which has a maximum of sound and a minimum of substance, while a few of the old-fashioned measure a discourse by their standard of doctrine to determine soundness. Rev. Burt Estes Howard lately occupied the pulpit of the First Church and spoke with great power on a vital theme.
