It is with genuine borrow we have to announce this week the ilealh of Mr. .John Wassun, the veleran oilitor of the I'omona Times, lie died in the harness, writing the for his paper only three days before his death. lie was in his seventy-sixth year, and died at his residence in I'omona on .Saturday of last week. lie hail from time to UIMP been rather alarmingly ill during Hie past three years, but, his wonderful count it nfion had enabled him to rapidly recovei ami resume his work. He WMH a. man of great, natural ability, which he cultivated HO well that, he was enabled to hold din own with the most, scholarly of journalists. He was a lover of the classics,- which his writings showed, but without any suggestion of ostentatious parade. lie was a shrewd judge of men and things, could lake in u situation rapidly, and promptly initiate a proper course for his paper lo take. It, was his lot, lo outlive the majority of his contemporaries, but, lie was a man who. made friends all through his life, and not the least, loyal are those who hiivc enjoyed the privilege of his friendship for comparatively few years. Ve|, he was not a man lo sacrifice a principle or lo lightly abandon a carefully formed opinion. Id' never, though ill. limes much before the public, sought In lie all things to all men. Me was both the most, fearless and inonl. generous of opponents. lie never flinched from what he conceived lo be his honorable duty, not even though that, way lay troubles and pecuniary loss. Me. hail n. supremo contempt; for all shams and humbugs, and rclenUcHsly exposed it, whenever the public interest demanded it. Ills is regarded as a personal loss by tlio journalists of .Southern California. At the time of his death he was chairman of the Moard of Trustee of the Lou Angeles Htate Normal Hchool. The messages which President, Roosevelt lias lately sent, to Congress concerning tho land frauds and timber deals in Oregon, unil nf wrong doing in other parts of the country, have caused great excitement in both branches of Congress and produced several unwise speeches and fiery atlacks upon the President and his policy, the chief offenders in this mutter being Tillmnn and KoraluT. That President Roosevelt, is well within his rights in advising Congress of these ('''auds is proved by the Const ihil ion of the United, which provides Hint "I lie President shall from time lo lime give to Congress in format ion of the stale of the Union, and recommend lo their con- sideralion such measures as he shall judge necesnary and expedient.'' Hut .several of the legislators have, not received these messages and suggestions HI a kindly spiril. and Ihe licrce ivsml- inent which they show against the contents of the messages and their author may perhaps lie lies! accounted for by the old saying ''that Ihe galled jade winces, 1 ' or III best their biller \iluper at ion of a I'resident who is alnml lo lay down his executive power is a pitiable i'xli i Iii I ion <>f niianiiess of spirit and personal spile lolallv tin beciiinuig in statesmen ',v ho represent the people of this j^l'ea! colllilrv ill Ihe hells ol ''on MISSIONARY MEETING. Meetings to forward the cause of the I'aptisf Foreign Missions were held at the I'aptist church on Wednesday. The speakers were Mr. Rider, the superintendent for I'aplist Foreign Missions for the Pacific '.'oast, Miss Austin, the secretary of the Woman's Mission Hoard and Mr. Maxwell, R missionary from (.he Philippines. Mr. Rider opened the meeting with a short, address on the Hook of Revelation, which he described as the ora- lorial of the fJible. It. has its solos, (|iiiirtct ten, sextettes, sand chorus, angel c.horns, and ended with the hallelujah chorus, which he composed of all nations. Miss Austin then spoke. Hhe said: ''Thirty-eight years ago the call came for womc'i to work in the foreign fields, as it was impossible for men lo reach the women in eastern countries. Since that time the women of the Haptist mission circles have been paying the salaries of the women missionaries, hast year liny supported "18 missionaries, besides native female workers, ami 117 schools were kept, in good work- Ing order. In India they were supporting "iO native Hible women. Twenty- live dollars a year is all that is required for the support of a Hible woman for one yea r. '' Mr. Mnxfleld then gave an account of his labors in Ihe Philippines, where hi! was in entire charge of a field whose inhabitants numbered -1)0,000, having only native teachers to assist, him. Me slated that, in his opinion the educational work was of the greatest importance. As the Hible was put foremost, the boys and girls learned about Christ and then went homo to tell their relatives, and HO the Uospol is spread; and he wished to impress upon .his hearers that the work was as much theirs HH his, as the missionary could do nothing unless ho was supported by the people at home, with their prayers, sympathy and money. Mr. Hitler then stated that every Hiinday school should bo interested in foreign missions, bocaiiHo the' Bible was a missionary Monk and trained for world conquest, and church work; and every Hiinday school could help by having a mission superintendent, lining missionary ilbmt rations in their lessons and praying for and giving to missions.
