SPEAKS IN OAKLAND
Rev. J. B. Slocum Will Fill the
Pulpit of First Baptist
OAKLAND, March 5.—-Rev. Joel B.
Slocum, pastor of Greenwood Baptist
church of Brooklyn, N. V., preached his
first sermon In Oakland this morning
in the First Baptist church, where he
will orcupy the pulpit for three weeks,
delivering a morning and evening ser
mon every Sunday.
Doctor Slocum came to Oakland In
answer to an invitation from the nomi
nating committee of the First Baptist
church, which is seeking a pastor to
fill the place of Rev. H. J. Vosburgh,
who resigned to accept a call to Cam
den, N. .1. While it Is not positive that
Doctor Slocum will be called, he, mad*
a strong impression on the large con
gregation which heard him today.
Rev. Mr. Slocum spoke this afternoon
at a mass meeting of the members of
the Young Men's Christian associa
tion, who filled the large auditorium
of the new building of the organiza
tion at Twenty-first street and Tele
graph avenue. He chose for his sub
ject, -The Manly Jesu«," and explained
his definition of manliness.
"According to the ideas of many
men.' Doctor Slocum said in part,
"Jesus would not be considered * manly
character. Their conception of manli
ness is bodily strength, but this Is
really only a small portion of it. Man
liness means courage, conviction, abil
ity to do. and Jefuis had all this. He
was not only able to defend himself,
but was the possessor of rare courage.
The characteristics of Jesus, In the
fljMl analysis, were those things which
we admire most In men."
Special music at the meeting was
rendered by Philip W. Hall.

OFFER FROM S. P.
Head of Harriman Lines Believed
to Have Sanctioned New
OAKLAND, March s.—One remit of
the visit of President Robert S. Lovett
of the Harriman lines to this city prob
ably will be a renewal tomorrow night
of , negotiations between the city of
Oakland and the Southern Pacific com
pany for the Seventh street franchise.
Action in the city council has been de
layed twice at the raquest of Southern
Pacific representatives, who explained
that with Vice President E. E. Calvin
absent from his offices, the company
had not been able to complete . a new
Since Calvin's return he has con
ferred, It is said, with Lovett on the
franchise proposition. The council
men believe that the railroad will
submit, a new proposal tomorrow even-
Ing, with the personal authorization
of the president of the Harriman lines.
"I believe the company will come
before the council with an offer to
i morrow night." said President Pendle-
I ton. "The officials have been working
lon some proposition relating to the
| Seventh street renewal for several
| days and indications are that they will
be ready for negotiations this week."
The only proposition the company
has before the council is for a fran
chise for 50 years, with rental at $5,000
annually. The. council will not grant
the renewal on such terms.
The belief among the oouncilmen Is
that lyovett and Calvin have gone over
the "Oakland plan' 1 by which the city
and company were to share the net
income of the line. Lovett rejected
that agreement after the Southern Pa
cific had accepted it tentatively, be
fore he came west. Whether or not
the company's expected proposal will
be similar In any way to the "Oakland
plan" Is not known outside the. rail
