like the merging of Berkeley with Oakland
Township outside of Oakland, because by
that means McCarthy, who was defeated in
ills own precinct, East Berkeley, was elected
by majorities in TV-mescal and Clureiuout,
Peralta and West Berkeley, whereas, if the
vote had been confined to East and West
Berkeley he would have been defeated.

•WHERE IS J. RANDALL?
A letter has been received by Postmaster
A. XV. Bishop of Oakland from Isa_c Giv
ens, Justice of the Peace at Silver City;
N. Mex., inquiring for a man named J.

Randall, Oakland, Cat, with a post. Bice
key attached. The men had a large assort
ment of skeleton keys in their possession.
They are held at Silver City to appear at

Justice writes that be knows they would
not stop at murder, and hopes to get
track of some crime by tracing the history
of the keys. The crime was committed on
the railroad near the Mexican frontier if at

Ariz., and Oeboa says lie i- direct from
Mexico. The Justice asks that if any in

He Discourses on "Religion and
Consider able Time Spent in Discussing His
Personal Clerical .Affairs and
Dr. Edward McGlynn, ex-pastor ol a
leading Roman Catholic church in New
York, whose differences with his ecclesias
tical superiors some two years ago attracted
much attention, delivered a lecture last
night in Metropolitan Temple to a fair
sized audience, the gallery seats at a lower
admission fee being the best patronized.
Dr. McGlynn was dressed in a black
frock suit, and did not present an appear
ance that would at first sight pronounce
him to be of strong clerical tendencies. He
is a man of about 55 years of age, ruddy
complexion, smooth shaven, with long hair
falling to his shoulders. He has consider
able embonpoint. As a speaker he has a
ready command of language, at times be
coming quite poetical, lt is somewhat diffi
cult to follow him closely in his train of
thought, as he does not follow a sequence,
but touches on twenty different ideas in as
OItEKTED WITH APPLAUSE.
When he appeared unaccompanied on the
platform he was greeted by loud and long
continued applause. As soon as it had sub
sided he staled that his subject for the even
ing would be "Iteligion and Equal Bights."
Ho then proceeded to give a description
lasting over an hour of his troubles in his
parish in New York. In the course of his
remarks ho said: "I ask your pardon if
my words seem too personal. I cannot deny
that my actions have caused much public
comment. Many of you no doubt are present
more to sec what manner of man 1 am lhan
exactly because the ideas 1 advocate are
what you desire to hear.
"it has been charged that I, a priest of
tho Roman Catholic Church, have re
nounced my religion. No greater mistake
could have been made. 1 occupy the same
stand now that 1 did many long years ago,
as far as the churcll faiths are concerned.
I gained a reputation some time ago for
liberalism and not for decrying spiritual
"It was my desire to be all things to all
men, in order to draw all men to Christ. I
left the pulpit to speak to all. What really
did it matter whether I spoke from the
head of a barrel or the tail of a cart. lam
not less a lover of all mankind because I
am a priest. It is part of my belief that
true religion consists of kindness to the
poor, and to believe in God only as a good,
kind and loving Father.
.WIT lIAI. AM) BSVEAIJED RELIGIOX.
"There is no clash between natural and
revealed religion. Not one of God's truths
can clash with the other. All truth is God's
truth. There is no conflict between true
-rience and true religion. llevealed religion
does not mean an open mouth, with closed
eyes and eats, so that anything the good
people desire can be put in your mouth
without your knowledge.
"I believe that if men are equal before God
they are equal before men. This is the
extent of my errors as condemned by my
superiors and the extent of my teachings.
"Some years ago 1 thought it my duty to
say a few words for the down-trodden ooor,
and 1 denounced injustice wherever I met
it. 1 believe in charity, but not the charity
that gives alms simply to be rid of the beg
gar's importunities. Charity is love as
taught by Christ. It means love of God's
will; love of justice. And justice is the
law of God.
"Because of my speaking in favor of the
Irish Laud League, advocating justice and
equal rights, the emissary of the British
Government in Rome, one Lrrington, de
nounced me to the high ecclesiastical court
as a heretic, teaching methods opposed to
the Catholic religion. 1 did tint escape the
surveillance of the Roman Vatican."
EFFOBTS TO SUSPEND HIM.
In a humorous style the speaker told of
the efforts to suspend him then. "Then,"
said Dr. McGlynn, "1 promised to make uo
more Irish Land League speeches. 1 am
half ashamed I did so. But I did it for the
privilege of continuing to minister at the
altar, aud sacriliced my rights as a man to
retain those of a priest, Soon after 1 again
spoke in favor of justice to Ireland, and
was condemned again by tho Roman people
for inciting an ,-.i revolution. I am a
native American, though of Irish descent,
and my heart beats strung for Ireland.
" Ii is not much to be proud of to be born
in any particular land, as it is entirely in
voluntary on our part, but it is much to be
grateful for. 1 think that any one who is
born outside of any certain land who be
comes a citizen and a good one of that laud
is more acceptable than one native born."
HENS. UEOIiCIE'S WOIIK.
"Poverty is not a necessary part of God's
law, aud it is not good trine to preach
that it is. I could uot find it in my heart
to preach it. Henry George's work on
poverty and progress did much to en
lighten me on the subject, and 1 agree with
the writer and his remedy cordially."
The speaker again referred to his differ
ences with the Roman church, and said he
felt emancipated like a slave when free
from ecclesiastical control. He said the
theology and dogmas of the Roman church
were much broader than its professors.
Then taking up the original subject of his
lecture he said that it was early demons
trated that equal rights of meu were based
on the will of God. After referring to the
injustice in the world, even iv the lowest
animal natures, he predicted that a time
would come when Christ should reign on
earth and universal peace uud happiness
prevail. Then the conditions that have
so long prevented three-fourths of the
human race from working for the sole
benefit of the other fourth would be

The sacred precincts of tho Postoffice
have been invaded by a gang of burglars.
On Friday night a crowd of boys, ranging
in years from 0 to 10, broke through the
basement window of the Postoffice and
made a raid upon the stores of Stationer;
which are kept there. They stole a large
quantity of stuff and then went and sold it.
One of tho urchins was caught on Saturday

He was promptly taken in hand and ter
