On a January 1914 morning, more than 300 prostitutes dressed and perfumed in their finest, marched to the Central Methodist Church to confront Reverend Paul Smith, who had launched a campaign against sin and vice on the Barbary Coast. (It was reported that his sermons were so provocative that prostitutes flocked to the vicinity of his church after the services, where they found eagerly aroused customers).
