How to set connection character set when sending query from java program to MySQL database.

I tried this:

String query = "SET NAMES 'cp1250'"; /* character set */
stmt = conn.prepareStatement(query);
stmt.executeQuery(); /* I also tried stmt.execute(); */

query = "SELECT * FROM myTable";
stmt = conn.prepareStatement(query);
rs = stmt.executeQuery();

but it doesn't work.

It works from MySQL command line client.
