GOLDEN OAK LEAVES
FOR CAPTAIN NOBLE
r* T^ISPATCHES from the East tell of the promotion of Captain Robert H. ■»
" I I Noble, who for a long time has been acting as aid on the personal staff S
*■ II of General Shafter. Captain Noble has been made major and assistant *■
*■ "^"^ adjutant general. ' *-
*• This is not the first time Captain Noble has worn the gold oak leaves. *■
*■ While he was with General Shatter during the Cuban campaign he was raised *-
*■ to a major of volunteers and was assigned to duty as assistant adjutant >♦■
*■ general, the post he has just been restored to. He was present at every action *■
» during the campaign against Santiago, and was recommended for a brevet *•
» lieutenant colonelcy for his service. He was one of the officers who negoti- *•
*■ ated the exchange of Lieutenant Hob=on. After his return from Cuba he was *-
«■ on duty at Montauk Point, and afterward was sent to New York to settle up *■
St- the records of the Fifth Army Corps. #■
* This work he finished last January, and he was then ordered West to this ♦
* department, and was appointed judg? advocate general. He was honorably *■
*■ mustered out of the volunteer service last March, and was again appointed *
»- to his old position on General Shafter's staff. *■
* Major Noble is well known in this city, as his duties as aid have brought *"
* him in contact with almost every public official or person of note who has *
* visited San Francisco. He is an accomplished linguist, and has traveled *"
*" over half the globe, and his position as aid has given him unusual opportunity *
* to utilize his talents as a diplomat. Major Noble is a graduate of West Point *
[ of the class of '84. He was appointed to the academy from Maryland, his *
* native State, in ISSO. His first assignment was to the First Regiment, with *
* which he did duty in Arizona for two years, during a good part of which *"
*■ time he was on scouting duty under General Lawton, then a captain in the *"
*■ Fourth Cavalry. In l?. y 6 he came to California and served here with his *"
*■ regiment until 1SS?: then he was made professor of military science and tac- *
*■ tics in St. John's College, at Annapolis. He returned to his regiment in Cali- -*■
*" fornla in 1594 and served as adjutant until 1557. when he was appointed to
* General Shafter's staff. Major Noble is also a lawyer, for he holds a de- y ~
* gree of Doctor of Laws from ;he University of Maryland. ♦
*" Just when Major Noble will be relieved from his present duty is uncer- 7-
*" tain. He is assistant adjutant general of volunteers, and may be assigned X
* to any department; but in all probability he will remain on this coast. s

Dr. Allen Griffiths delivered an interest
ing lecture on "Spiritualism and Occult
ism" last night, at the meeting of the
Universal Brotherhood, in the hall of the
Academy of Sciences. A large audience
listened to his views on the subject. He
said in part:
Theosophy looks upon spiritualism
as it does upon everything else, from
the vantage ground of a universal
sweep of vision. It admits the fact of
genuine phenomena, the existence of
beings residing upon the superphysical
side of nature, and the possibility- of
communication being had with them
by men under certain conditions, but at
the same time warns against such
practices as productive of evil. It as
serts that man is composite in his
constitution, being composed broadly
speaking, of body, soul and spirit.
During life he exists in a physical
body and is usually dominated by de
sires and interests which at death per
ish because of their perishable na
ture; that during life his spiritual na
ture constantly strives to impress it
pelf upon the lower man and succeeds
in the ratio of his elevating thought
and action above merely earthly
Thia is the voice of conscience. At
death, soul and spirit are separated
from the physical body which disin
tegrates and resolves back into Its
primal elements. The Karmic body,
an etherial counterpart of the physical
body, continues for a certain time
after death to exist upon the super
physicai plane: the astral is just
one remove from its former resi
dence in the physical body on earth.
This Karmic body is the residence of
the soul, composed of animal and
Immediately after death, with rare
exceptions, the spiritual entity, the
real man, ascends to the spiritual
realm The Karmic body, holding only
the lower animal, earthly and perish
able part of the former man. persists
for a time in the astral world, and it
is with this that ordinary mediums
communicate, not with the true spir
itual entity, as that has already risen
beyond reach of mediumistic inter
The intelligence that animates the
Karmic body is but a reflection of the
real man and persists for a short time
only by virtue of previously imparted
momentum, which is soon exhausted
because severed from its source. This
reflected, low and waning intelligence
has no volition of its own, but when
galvanized into artificial life by a
medium from whom It absorbs
strength, may impart some portion of
its disappearing contents, but it does
not and cannot impart more.
REV. DR. LOCKE'S
Rev. Dr. Locke preached his farewell
sermon to a large congregation last night.
Scores of those who wished to hear him
were turned away, unable to get within
the outer doors. The pastor spoke elo
quently, his voice at times breaking with
feeling. His B- rmon, in brief, was as fol
We live In deeds, not in years; In
thoughts, not breaths. We should
count time by heart throbs. He most
lives who thinks most, feels the
noblest, acts the best. I am not In
clined this evening so much to preach
to you as I am to emphasize some liv
ing" words. I give you the text which
I have just read as a motto for good
The heart stands for man's moral
and spiritual nature. The real- issues
of life depend upon heart power and
heart achievement While we often
say the mind is the man. yet that
man is of pigmy nature whose mind
has not been d at the expense
of his heart. Be true to your friends.
Longfellow says h> breathed a song
into the air. and then writes:

In closing Dr. Locke spoke tenderly nf
his affection for his people, and of a hop?
that .it some futur- time he might be
returned to labor in San Francisco.
Initial Sermon by Father McCourt.
Father J. >* McCourt, who has just ar
rived at Old St. Mary's Church in this
city, delivered his first sermon last night.
Father McCourt. who has been connect
ed with the Paulist Novitiate at Wash
ington for the past four years, comes to
this city with a reputation as an able
speaker, which he fully sustained in his
Initial sermon last night. His subject
was the Virein Mary, and his large audi
ence followed every word with attention.
In part be Bald:
All Christians love and honor the
holy name of Mary, because she had
a special share in the work of our re
demption, and this work was to co
operate freely and intelligently in body
and soul: to accept an office of the
highest dignity indeed, but one that
Involves great responsibility and sor
row. This office was greater than any
given to either man or angel.
She was associated in his work. She
stopped him at the age of 12 when he
said he must be about his Father's
work. She caused him to resume it at
the marriage feast in Cana, at GaH
lee, where he worked his first miracle
at her prayer. She was associated in
his passion. Simeon bound son and
mother in a common bond of suffering
and she followed him along the dolo
rous road that led to Calvary, and
etood beneath the cross. Why was
Mary there? What mother ever goes
to the execution of her son? Here
was some design of God. some mystery
of his love to be carried out.
Our Lord had been conceived and
born without detriment to her virgin
ity, without pain or labor. God lays
upon her the full law of maternity ,
that "in labor and sorrow she shall
bring forth children."
Unbinding of Lazarus.
Rev. E. Nelander of the First English
Lutheran Church preached to his con
gregation last night on "The Unbinding
of Lazarus." In part he said:
God never does directly what he can
do through others. Ht^ might have
furnished Noah with a complete ocean
steamer, but he did not. He let the
patriarch hammer away at the ark
through a century, but he did furnish
him with the length, the breadth and
the height, because there was no skill
In him to discover these.
"Roll ye away the stone," said Jesus
to his disciples; not because he could
not himself have done it. but he would
enlist their Bervice. "Loose him and
let him go." he said. He could him
self have unwound the bandages, but
that is not his way of doing things.
He is saving the world through ua.
His word to every one of his follow
ers is: "Lend a hand. Loose them
and let them go." The great eman
cipator speaks. Unbind the cerements!
This Is practical "Altruism."
DR. STEBBINS IS
HONORED BY HIS
Thirty-Fifth Year of
RECEIVES A FINE TESTIMONIAL

The Popular Divine Preaches the An
niversary Sermon, and Both
He and His Flock Are
The Rev. Horatio Stebbins, D.D., cele
brated the thirty-fifth anniversary of his
pastorate of the First Unitarian Church
yesterday morning in the church edifice
on the corner of Geary and Franklin
streets. Dr. Stebbins presiued at the ser
vices and preached the anniversary ser
mon. This was the second time that he
had occupied the pulpit since his recent
illness, from which he has happily recov
A feature of the occasion was the pre
sentation to Dr. Stebbins of a beautifully
engrossed testimonial, accompanied by a
check for $2000. The testimonial was
signed by over 300 members of the con
gregation, to which the distinguished prel
ate has endeared himself throughout the
many years of his ministration. Many of
the assemblage were visibly affected
when the recipient responded in a feel
ing manner. He also found it difficult to
control his own feelings, and there were
few dry eyes in the congregation.
The Rev. A. J. VVelis assisted at the
services, and in his prayer gave thanks
that the pastor of the First Church had
been spared to continue his influence
among the members of his flock.
In his sermon Dr. Stebbins referred to
the wondrous changes thai have occurred
during the past fifty years, and which
included some of the greatest achieve
ments of man on the earth.
"Few of you," he said, "remember the
origin of the First Unitarian Church,
nearly half a century ago. Forty-seven
years ago your committee requested me
to become your pastor. Of that commit
tee only one is prt-^ent. John Perry Jr.,
whose heart is as young as his years are
venerable. I did not accept the call
then, but twelve years later, when hearts
were weeping at the death of one whose
name will ever be revered, I became your
pastor to succeed him.
"I myseif would not clothe this day,
with so much importance, for it is as the
flash of candle light amid the splendors
of the sun. Suffice it to say, however,
that in the kindliness of your spirit you
would deign to honor it as you see fit.
This church has stood for the great prin
ciples of freedom and independence. It
shall ever be the guardian of Protestant
ism and republican liberty. Its prosper
ity has been steady going. Its pastor has
never— and I ask pardon for it—endeavor
ed to get up a sensation. Its friendships
have been lasting, and the" association of
itn members has b^en an influence for
good. Religion is the great sentiment of
human nature, and puts in action thfe
richest sources of human experiences."
Dr. Stebbins referred to the influence of
the good men who had passed to the
great beyond, and concluded by blessing
Moderator Frank J. Symmes then ad
dressed Dr. Stebbins. saying that those
under his charge had thought it proper
to present him with a testimonial of the
high regard they entertained for him and
as a slight expression of their love and
affection. The testimonial was then read
by Mrs. Isidore Burns, and. after Dr.
Stebbins had responded, he received the
congratulations of many of the congre
Jonah, the Prophet, Discussed.
Rev. William Rader discoursed on
"The Gospel of Jonah" before the congre
gation of the Third Congregational
Church last night, i.c explained who
Jonah was, dwelt on his disobedience and
told of his visit to Nineveh and the work
he accomplished there as an Evangelist.
In discussing the prophet the speaker
said, in part:
"We learn how foolish is diso
bedience. God crosses our path with
storms, our ships creak and strain in
the stress of contrary winds. Jonah
was not a good prophet, or, if he was,
he was not a high type of a man. He
was not great as was Elijah or Isaiah
or Moses. It was his duty to go to
Nineveh, as clearly as it was Dewey's
to enter the harbor of Manila, or the
Americans intrenched on Bunker Hill
to pull their musket triggers when
they saw the eyes of fhe redcoats.
"We learn that the end $f law is not
punishment, but to make people bet
ter. Punishment Is never an end with
God. Contrast this purpose with that
of tfie Dreyfus iudges. who have suc
ceeded in making the impression that
they endeavored to find grounds for
puninshment instead of vindication;
that they tried to excuse their ven
geance rather than to establish jus

DEDICATION OF A
NEW SEPHER TORAH
CEREMONIES AT THE NEVAH
Dr. Isidor Myers Delivers an Ad
dress — Congregation Inscribes
the First and Last
The dedication of a new Sepher Torah,
or Book of the Law, took place yesterday
afternoon at the Congregation Nevah Ze
deck, on Mission street. The Torah,
which Is in the form of a parchment
scroll, was recently written by B. Gold
man, a scribe, in Europe, and broug-ht to
this city, where it was raffled and do
nated by the winner to the congregation.
The ceremonies of the dedication consist
ed of an address by Dr. Isidor Myers of
the Bush-street synagogue and selections
by the Hebrew Orphan Asylum band.
The first and last verses of the sacred
scroll had been left unfinished by the orig
inal scribe, and It became the duty of the
members of the congregation to fill In the
required letters of the verses, and this
privilege was acquired yesterday after
noon by purchase. M. Rapkin acted as
auctioneer, and succeeded in collecting
quite a sum. which will go to the benefit
of the congregation. After the inscription
of the verses had been completed the
Torah was deposited In the ark in which
reposes several other sacred scrolls.
In his address Dr. Myers said: "It is
in accordance with an ancient Jewish cus
tom that we are assembled here to finish
the inscribing of the Torah. The Torah
was given to all Israel, and its crown 13
greater than that of the priesthood or
royalty. Every Israelite can take tho
crown of the Torah and put It on his own
brow. It Is a sacred heritage handed
down from generation to generation. It
Is your best friend, and has at all times
been the safeguard of Israel." Dr. My
ers referred to the sentence of Dreyfus,
which he characterized aa the greatest
tragedy of the age.
"The fate of one man." he said, "de
cides your fate and the fate of every Jew
in the universe. It is the case of an indi
vidual unjustly condemned through the
hatred of the pagan spirit that is still
rampant in the world. France is not the
only country where bigotry condemns the
unfortunate to suffering. There are other
places equally as intolerant."
Dr. Myers concluded by exhorting his
hearers "ever to remain steadfast to their
Torah. which was an antidote for all the
evil passions to which man is heir.
