TALKED OF HOME LIFE
Rev. Mr. Baker's Lecture Before
the American Protective
HE FAVORS WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE
But Says There Should Be No Higher
Ambition Than to Be Queen
of a Household.
Rev. Dr. Goodwin was to hare addressed
the A. P. A. meeting at Metropolitan Tem
ple yesterday afternoon, but was prevented
by reason of sudden illness. Rev. F. K.
Baker at the last moment was induced to
fill the gap, and though not at all well
himself, made a stirring patriotic address.
Chairman Quitzow opened the meeting
with the following remarks:
"American Citizens and Friends: I re
gret that matters have so shaped themselves
for us to-day that we are left without a
speaker to make the address of the day.
"The friend who was to speak for us to
day is too sick to he here and to perform
the duty we had assigned to him.
"We must not expect that everything in
this struggle will run smoothly, for if that
were the case we would be apt to flag in
our exertions and be thrown off our guarH,
giving our opponents a decided advantage.
While looking at the work we have taken
upon ourselves from this standpoint, we
are always reminded of the oft-repeated
maxim, 'Eternal vigilance is the price of
"Let us, therefore, live up to that maxim
and resolve that we will not allow our de
votion to the erand principles of the Amer
ican Protective Association to abate for
one moment, but to redouble our exertions
to accomplish the aims of this noole insti
tution and see to it that every sentence of
its platform is carried out and put into
"If we work for that end from purely
selfish motives we will rind that, by work
ing in unison, each individual worker will
receive his just share of the benefits de
rived from the practical workings of the
principles for which we are united.
"But when working out these principles
from a broader poiut of view, for the ad
vancement and benefit of all, with a feel
ing of jrood will to all men, we should feel
doubly inspired to work for the fulfillment
of our aims and object.*-, for the broadness
of our motives will lend strength to our
exertions and crown them with a greater
"The American Protective Association
has jnst cause to congratulate itself upon
the success it has already attained, for we
have iust heJd a convention at Sacramento
emirely dominated by oar people, to such
an extent that a Sacramento paper, which
is run in the interest of our opponents,
come s our in large headlines and styles
the convention 'An A. P. A. Council.'
"In this instance we are constrained to
say thai this paper, tne Sacramento Bee,
has spoken the truth, and can only add
that we expect and lo<ik forward to the
Orcat National Council of A. P. A. to be
held at St. Louis to do their work hon
estly, patriotically and fearlessly, so
ihr.t we wili feel proud wnen gome to the
polls on November next to cast our vote
for a true and loyal American, one who
stands squareiy upon the platform of true
"And when the ballots are counted
throughout the length and breadth of our
bf-.oved country and the resuJt announced
that we have elected a fearless expounder
of our principles we then will look for
ward to the return of prosperity to our
"To the accomplishment of this great
result we must bend our energy, not ex- '
pecting that others will do our work for
us, but each one remember that he has his
duty to perform, that he forms a part of
the great whole, and that so much of the
whole reruuins undone if he neglects his
part. Yon cannot expect to reap a har
vest if you do not sow, so I ask each and
all here to-day not to neglect their duty to
'While at Sacramento I was frequently
asked what were the principles of the A.
P. A., and when I answered by saying,
'Loy.aity to true Americanism,' I was an
swered by the question, 'Well, are not the
Catholics loyal Americans?'
"i was constrained to rfnswer no, for no
man can be a loyal American and owe his
first allegiance to the i'ope of Rome.
"And to the answer, 'Oh, that isnotso,' I
further answered, 'A divided allegiance is
worse than no ailegiance.'
"I further said that we were determined
not to allow a foreign power to interfere
and control the politics of our country.
"We have no objection to the individual
exercising his full rights, no matter what
hi* religious convictions may be, but wedo
object to his spiritual adviser controlling
his political action.
"We further object to the sectarian use
of moneys appropriated for the main
tenance of our pubJic schools.
"But I would cave it further understood
that we will maintain just aa strenuously,
that the rights to the free exercise of all
the privileges guaranteed by the constitu
tion to every one, regardless of birth
place, race, creed or party, is the first
■fundamental principle of the A. P. A., and
which we are in duty bour.d to carry ouu
"Let us therefore lirmlv resolve that we
will always keep these cardinal points in
view, and we may rest assured that we
will be rewarded by the grateful praise of
millions of our posterity yet to come.
"It hus been said, and justly so, 'that
there never was a traitor to a bad cause,
but many a one to a t;ood cause.' So you
will find the bad strenuou>ly adhering to
a bad cause.
"You cannot exoect that tue followers
of Roman Catholicism can be so easily
brought to a sense ot their abject slavery,
b cause they have become accustomed to
weuring the collar and would not feel com
fortable witnout it, but if once they do
commence tc think and realize how pleas
' ant it is to be relieved of the burden, their
stature becomes more erect and they ex
funf. oui into full and magnificent raau
lV od. and when looking ba< k they can
hardly realize how it was that they were
"Opportunity and contact in this life is
all thai make a man, therefore we owe
muri. to ti.r.-t . w .; — ti.at >ye are here to
day advocating the humanitarian princi
ples of t he A. P. A., and we should look
uj-on thot>e who have not been tn> fortu
nate as to have enjoyed tnose opportuni
ties and the same contact more with pity
than with derision.
"In taking this view of the situation we
may hopefully look forward that with the
*aniH o; portuni lies and contact all those
who have the capability to rise to a higher
standpoint will soon be with us."
Rev. Mr. Baker began by saying there [
were live points he intended to speak
aboutr— points involving the most pressing
w«nt? of the ujte. "T!;e first to be consid
ered is man," said the speaker. "I don't
exactly agree with Saxc when he Bays tue
proper study of niankinu is man. One of
the most pressing wants of the day is for
men of genuine physical, im ntal and
moral worth— men "without whitewash,
possessing unswerving personal purity.
"We hear much about evolution — scien
tists investigating where man c;ime from
and how he got here, t>ome have consid
erable curiosity about their origin. It is
of little consequence wher«- we came from,
but of great consequence what we are go
ing to d" w hilejnere.
"I am more interested to know what you
are here for and what you are /oing to do
as citizens when you go from here than I
am in how yon got here.
"Man is here. It matters but little to
him what took place ages ago or what was
the condition of the race.
"Th« thought of greatest concern should
be: What am I? What am I susceptible
and capable of doing ? What are the laws
governing my present condition? What
are my possibilities?
"Man is the highest product of his own
history. The discoverer finds nothing so
grand or so tall as himself, nothing so val
uable to him. The greatest star is that at
the little end of tne telescope— the star
that is looking, not iooKed after, nor

"Woman's devotion to the home and

"During the last half century the sphere
of her work has greatly increased and en
larged, until all great reforms bear her
name and character.
"The time has come when we need to
put the right suffrage in the hands of our
mothers and daughters.
"All rightful civil government is only
an enlarged form of the family govern
ment in a representative form, taking into
consideration the needs of each individual
family within its jurisdiction. The only
safeguard to National perpetuity, peace
and honor is the unity and perpetuity of
the family tie in purity and peace. It is
well said : 'Demoralize the family and you
thereby destroy domestic and National
happiness and undermine completely the
temple of virtue and hope and prepare the
way of moral and civil desolation.' The
family is the first institution and lies at
the basis of all that is good in society and
permanent in government. Here the first
lessons of patriotism and morality are
taugat and the first fruits of ail that is
good and pure are brought forth, nurtured
and largely developed. Here the best pos
sibilities oi social, national and religious
life commence to unfoid, and just to tne
degree that any people departs from the
true idea aud form of the family ties is
that people noted for incivility and
immorality. The home is the thermome
ter of the nation — the national never ris
ing above the home life. Talmage says:
'Wnen at last we come to calculate the
forces that decide the destiny of nations,
it will be found that tbe mightiest and
Grandest influence came from home.'
purgeon called home 'the grandest of all
institutions.' Dryden termed it 'the
sacred reluge of life.' I think we are
ready to conclude with the writer who
says, 'It is therefore within the family
circle that the star of hope, of religion and
civil rights is to be seen, and let it go
down and all would be turned into the
dismal darkness of midnight without
moon or star to guide the weary pilgrim
on his way.' This being true, we must
regard with exceeding anxiety any indica
tions of degeneracy in our home life and
guard with eternal vigilance the purity
and sacredness of the family tie.
"John Gray said 'the hand that rocks
the cradle rules the world.' We are all
very lamely indebted Co the influences
that cluster around our cradles for what
ever good there maybe in our character
and condition. One in writing on the
mother's influence has well said: 'If she
is in the best sense womanly — it she is true
and tender, loving and heroic, patient and
self-devoted, she consciously and uncon
sciously organizes and puts into opera
tion a set of influences that do more to
mold the destiny of the nation than any
man uncrowned by the power of eloquence
can possibly effect.' The men of the na
tion are what their mothers make them
as a rule, and the voice that those men
i speak in the expression of power is the
( vjiceof the woman who bore and bred i
them. Th^re can be no substitute for
<B"Thcre is no other possible way in which
tne women of the Nation can" organize
tneir influence and power that will tell so
beneficially upon socie-.y and the State.
I do not say that bomelife is woman's
limit. Her ambition may transcend its
duties, and her talents and influence may
reach far beyond its doors, yet I believe
before everything else she should build up i
a true home from whose walls shall come '
iorth the true woman and the true man, j
who shall together rule and bless the
land. While 1 believe in woman's rights
and woman's suffrage, and the use of
woman's ability to sp?aic from the public I
platform, or the wisdom that commands
the *eat of the Judge's bench, and would
freely grant unto her equal privileges with
man, I believe no higher dignity nor
greater honor can be given her than to
reign the undisputed honored queen of
"Mrs. Beecher says : 'To be the guiding
star, the ruling spirit, in such a position is
higher honor than to rule an empire.'
The power of a mother's influence cannot
be overestimated. First — Her influence
begins early in life. Education begins in
children long before they are responsible.
It begins when they begin to see and f°el
and observe, and about all they see and
feel and observe in infancy is 'mother.'
If early impressions are elementary prin
ciples out of which mature life is organ
ized how profoundly important it is that
those impressions are good and ennobling.
Second — The mother's influence isa living
power, molding character and directing
conduct. I believe that home is the most
powerful school in the world, and that
the mother's influence is mightier than
pulpits and thrones. Napoleon said, 'the
future good or bad conduct of a child de
pends entirely on the mother.' Third — Her
influence makes permanent impressions
upon the lif* of her children.
"Richter said: 'Every fir^t thing con
tinues forever with the child; the first
color, the first mnsic, *,he first flower, paint
tbe foreground of life. Every new edu
cator affects less than his predecessor,
until at last, if we regard all life as an
educational institute, a circumnavigator
of the world is less influenced by all the
nations he has seen than by his nurse.'
"Wesley's mother was a holy woman,
and she so impressed her children that
Methodism, which has been a crown of
glory to this old world, originated with
on«j of her sons. Abraham Lincoln said,
'All I am or can be I owe to my angel
mother.' Tralv mothers are the sculptor
of the coming men and women. 1 believe
that thn mother is seen in her most sacied
and dignified character in the home.
Many of our noblest patriots, most holy
ministers, most profound scholar spring
from such homes, where they were stimu
lated to their excellence and usefulness by
the holy principles taught by pious
"The mother in the divinely appointed
teacher <tnd guide of her children. Lan
guage cannot describe the power of her in-
I fluence in moulding the character of
others, the condition of fiimihes and
destines of empires. Oh, that the mother
realised the end for which every child is
entrusted to her. I believe if every mother
would acquaint herself with the high and
holy responsibilities devolved on her and
the blessed results which may througn
her be made sure, we would have fewer
men and women weakenel and ruined
by sin and estranged from the church.
The ideal wife and mother rules as queen
in the home, but with such marvelous
patience, winning tenderness and undying
love that her holy life reproduces itself in
the happiest development of her children
in character and life, and her memory is a
perpetual inspiration when the bright
flowers bloom above her sleeping dust.
"May the glorious day soon dawn when
women will throw away the weakening
follies of fashion and soul famine and rise
to the plane where God intended they
should be and make their homes schools
of politeness, Godliness and tender affec

There was some remarkable rifle and
pistol shooting yesterday at the Shell

in the morning until late in the afternoon

place on all ranges, but the muzzle-loader

DIANA WON THE MONEY
Finish of the Inaugural Stake at
the Ingleside Coursing
Robertscn's ard Pey ion's Eastern Dogs
Carried Off First, Third and
Filth Pr zes
Another big crowd of conning men
went to Ingleside Park yesterday to see
the finish of the stake begun on opening
day, and beyond a few decisions that failed
to please the spectators the day passed off
pleasantly. The management had profited
by the experience of the previous Sunday,
and a second poolbox helped to expedite
selling and cashing pools.
The day was prolific of surprises, and
and the faces of the short-end players
were wreathed in smiles, while the players
of t be favorites tore up bunches of tickets
on the wrong dog with great regularity.
The biggest surprise of the day was Lau
rel wood, who . was put out in the original
stake by Governor ■ Markham He dis
posed of such fast performers as .Magpie,
Sky ball, Kirk Glen and Electric with
seem in l' ease, and the talent dropped
heavily on his opponents until they caught
his true form ana began to play him.
St. Lawrence came limping from the
field after beating White Chief, an old
break in one of bis toes crippling him com
pletely. He went down before the fast
and clever Royal Buck after a hard race in
the third ties, in which he ran practically
on three legs, his injury preventing his
turning quickly to get back to his game?
Robertson & Peyton's kennel of Eastern
dogs carried off first, third and fifth prizes,
' The unfinished stake was taken up at
the second ties and resulted as follows:
Diane beat Lady Fitzgerald, Master Glenklrk
beat Flashlight, St. Lawrence beat White Chief,
Royal Buck beat Skyball, Listak beat Sly Boy,
Valley Maid beat Quern B. - . •
Third • ties— Diana beat Lissak, Valley Maid
beat Master Glenklrk, Royal Buck beat St. Law
Royal Buck was withdrawn • and Diana
beat Valley M»>id; taking first prize, Valley
Maid second and Royal Buck third. . St.
Lawrence, Master Glenkirk and Lissak re
ceived fourth, fifth and sixth prizes res
. A twenty-four dog consolation stake was
then run, with the following result:
Fear Not beat Camilla, Fireman beat Dot
Dimple, Electric beat Queen B, Little Tom beat
Lady Fitzgerald, Livingston beat Great Scott,
Kirk Glen beat Uncle Sam, Lnurelwood beat
Magpie, Skybali beat King Carlo. Magnet beat
Xi . Scott, White Chief bout Tom Hayes, Spin

Second ties— Electric beat Fireman, Laurel
wood beat Kirk Glen. Magnet beat Spinaway.
Third ties— Laurelwood beat Electric.
The growing darkness put an end to the
running at this point, Laurelwood ' and
Magnet dividing ; first and second ' prizes
and third going to Electric.'

The Olympic Men'i Century.
The Olympic Wheelmen, some twenty-six
strong, under the leadership of Captain Faw
cett, rode to San Jose yesterday to witness the
annual shoot of tbe Olympic and Garden City
Gun club. The return trip, although made
against a strong head wind, was ridden in
very good time, due to the heroic pace work of
Great Match Game Between John
Riordan and James Harlow,
SPLENDID TEST OF ENDURANCE
The San Francisco Court Crowded in
Every Part by Admirers of
Riordan held the championship for sev
eral years, and during that time no player
on tbe coast had the courage to attempt
to wrest it from him. With the exception
of John Jones, the Australian champion,
Riordan was considered to be without a
peer, and when J. Harlow challenged him
about a year ago to play for the champion
ship and fIQO a side, handball players gen
erally were amazed when Riordan declined
to cover Harlow's deposit with The Call
and forfeited the championship to Harlow.
Since then Harlow has been recognized
as the champion, but neither .he nor
any one else felt satisfied that he should
hold the title without playing for it. All
efforts to get up a match between the two
failed, but when Harlow defeated T. F.
Bonnet three weeks ago for a trophy pre
sented by Phil Ryan, proprietor of the
San Francisco court, Riordan pleased his
friends and every lover of handball by
challenging Harlow to play for the cham
pionship, the match to be the best of five
The match was played in the San Fran
cisco court yesterday afternoon. The court
was crowded with a critical audience, and
although it was the general opinion that
Riordan would prove the victor, no one
was courageous enough to lay money on
Shortly after 3 o'clock Riordan made
his appearance in the alley and he was
immediately followed by tfarlow. It was
evident that both had trained well for the
event. No two men could present a
stronger contrast. Riordan looked like a
giraffe, with his long, thin legs and thin
boay, while Harlow, who is short and
compactly built, had the appearance of a
George Hutchinson was the scorer and
releree and he lost no time in starting the
play. J. C. Nealon tossed up a dollar and
Harlow made a wiong guess, so Riordan
100K the ball.
The first game was a scorcher. Riordan
started off with 14 consecutive aces, the
first 7 being toss»d without a chance for
Harlow, and his friends were jubilant.
Harlow kept up his usual record for
splendid service and scored 14 before be
ing retired making the game equal. Rior
don followed with 3 aces and Harlow
failed to score. Riordon only made 1 and
Harlow followed with 3; then Riordon
scorea 2 and Harlow 1. Riordon had only
1 to make to win and he did not disap
point bis friends, the game being won by
tne score of 21 — 18.
The second was acknowledged to
be the keenest contest ever seen in the
court. It was essentially a test of endur
ance and skill between the two players,
and at its conclusion Harlow seemed to
have suffered the most.
Twelve times each player had the op
portunity of serving, which shows the na
ture of the game. . Riordan's scores were
1, 2. 2, 3, 5, 1, 0, 0, 2, I, 3. 1. and Harlow's
1, 5, 0, 3, 0. 1, 0. 3, 1, 0, 6. They stood 20
to 20, and the game seemed easy for Har
low, who had tossed a straight 6, but he
fumbled the bail in returning and had to
give place to Rio:dan. Riordan tossed a
oail ana Harlow failed to catch it, but im
mediaieiy protested that it was not over
the ace-line. Hutchinson decided against
him and Harlow appealed against his de
cision. It looked for a few minutes as if
the match would end in a fizzle, but when
Harlow saw that the feeling of the specta
tors was in favor of the referee's decision
he gracefully withdrew his protest and the
second game was credited to Riordan.
The time wasted gave the players a
chance to get their second wind, and
Riordan started off on the third game Hke
a young colt. He scored 6 aces before
being retired, and Harlow was only able
to make 1. lliurdan added 6 more to his
scorv and Harlow made 4; Riordan fol
lowed with S, Harlow with 1, and then
Riordan made 6 and out, winning tbe
championship in tiiree straight games
amid the cheers of the spectators.
It was a great match, and, although de
feated, Harlow proved that he is a stayer
cf the first water and a thorough expert at
the game. He is a trifle weak in his left
hand, but he is gradually overcoming tiv.it
defect. Riordan's victory was a popular
At the Union court the attraction was a
mutch between R. Drea and A. B. Beaton
and F:ank Larkin and H. Whitlow. Each
team won two rubs, and the final will be

to-morrow (Tuesday) evening at the Young
Men's Christian Association building.
Special matters of interest relative to

seating capacity of over 5000.
San Jose will be gay with decorations
and banners with suitable designs will be
thrown across the streets in several places.
Many of the garlands nsed for the rose
carnival arches were made by the Endeav
orers and these will be allowed to stand
during the convention.
The special flag for the convention will
be one made of white cloth with the Chris
tian Endeavor monogram and the word
"Welcome" on it. The business houses
will use this Hag very largely in decorating
their places of business.
When the delegates arrive in San Jose
tney will be met by a large reception com
mittee, of which Lester L. Morse is chair
man. The members of the reception com
mittee will be easily recognized by the
white corduroy caps which they will wear
and the Santa Clara sunflower badges with
streamers of old gold ribbon.
The delegates as they arrive will be
taken in charge by the reception commit
tee and escorted to the hotel where they
have been assigned.
Theodore M. Wright, chairman of the
convention committee, has already as
signed nearly 1000 delegates, and large
numbers are yet to be heard from.
A great choir of 200 of the best voices in
San Joae are in training under the direc
tion of Rev. Ellsworth Rich, and every
thing will be done to make the music a
leading feature of the convention.
