Southern Pacific Officials Likely to
Ltaie James Flood Building.
Harrlman Drops Skyscraper
Project for Present
E. H. Itarrlman will not erect a new
building to house the offices of the
Southern Pacific in Ban Francisco, as
was his intention after looking over
the situation, but ■will tnke a long
lease on the James Flood building. The
general offices were formerly located
in the Merchants Trust building and
the city ticket office at 613 Market
street, under the Grand hotel.
■ The lower floor of the Flood building
•was occupied by stores, but Mr. Flood
preferred to lease the entire building
to one man or corporation and made a
proposition to the Southern Pacific of
ficials, who are now considering it.
Charles S. Fee, passenger traffic man
ager,- has gone east to confer with
Traffic Director J. C. Stubbs. It is be
lieved that they will decide In favor of
leasing the building.
One indication that the officials have
already made up their minds to take
the building is the fact that they have
made propositions to the general agents
of transcontinental and eastern lines to
sublet space on the ground floor for
passenger and freight offices.
It is believed that the agents will
lease space because it Is easier for them
to sell Pullman space where their offi
ces are near to those of the Initial line.
■This would practically move half ot
Railroad Row from the Palace hotel to
Market and Powell streets. The gen
eral offices of the Santa Fe will go back
to the Monadnock building within two
or three months, and other roads have
spoken for space in the same building.
This gives rise -to the opinion that
Railroad Row in San Francisco will ex
tend over more space than before the
earthquake and flre.
Officials of Pennsylvania Must Work
Jp From Ranks
;The Pennsylvania, about which there
have been many exposures during the
past two or three weeks, is said to have
no equal among the important railroads
of the country for compactness of or
ganization. Almost from the time of
organization the road has trained its
own men. So closely has this policy
been followed that today Its president
and a majority of its higher officials
are men who began at the bottom and
whose whole service has been with one
road. ■ '■■> ; .
One of the leading reasons for the
permanency of the organization in this
manner is the fact that the company's
charter requires that Its directors shall
be .citizens of Pennsylvania. A great
deal of the financing of the road has
been done in New York during recent
years, but there is not a New York
banker on the board. This can be said
ot practically no other American rail
Many of the high officials have be
gun at the bottom and worked up.
President Cassatt began as a rodm.in
and worked up through the. engineer
[injr and motive power departments.
Three of the directors, the assistant
to the second vice president, the gen
eral superintendent of transportation,
the superintendent of freight transpor
tation and three out of the four general
division superintendents began as en
One of the engineer directors, Samuel
Ren, is serving as third vice president
and another. James McCrea, is first
vice president of the lines west of
Plttsburg and president of the Van
dalia, a controlled road. In addition,
the general manager, W. TV. Atterbury,
came up from the grade of apprentice
through the motive power department
and the general division superinten
dents did the same thing.
But very few young men are found
near the top in the Pennsylvania. The
higher officials' ages range from 40 to
70, many of them being near 60. There
have been very few men who now
hold high positions with the road who
have been. promoted on account of their
fathers' reputations.
For these reasons railroad men
throughout the country are interested
to know whether there will be any
radical changes In the operating de
partment en account of the recent ex

Church Is Monument to Efforts of
H. C. Slgler — Rev. Robert Me.
Intyre Preaches on "Lord's
As a monument to the Christian zeal,
and work of H. C. Slgler was the dedl
catloaof the Kastlake Methodist chapel,
corner Hancock and Darwin streets,
yesterday afternoon. Mr. Sigler himself
organized a Sunday school in the local
ity and later donated the lot on which
the chapel was built, and then- donated
the furnishings, making a gift in all of
$2500. In line with the work of Mr. Slg
ler, Rev. C. J. Miller, pastor of Grace
Methodist church, offered his services
to the mission, which were gratefully
accepted. Rev. Mr. Miller will supply
until conference, when a pastor will
be appointed.
The mission building was erected at a
cost of $900. of which the City Mission
union donated $760. At the services
yesterday $250 was raised, dedicating
the chapel out of debt.
Rev. S. A. Thomson, the presiding
elder of the Pasadena district, was
present and presided at the service.
Dr. Thomson has been very active In
assisting with the church work in the
mission. Rev. W. M. Sterling offered
Preaches Dedicatory Sermon
Rev. Robert Mclntyre, pastor of the
First Methodist church, preached the
dedicatory sermon. He took for his
text Matthew 6:9. He said in part:
."The words of my text are generally
called a part of the Lord's prayer, but
the title is a misnomer. It is not the
Lord's prayer. There Is something ex
pressed In those words that he could
not pray. We ought to stop calling it
the Lord's prayer. There is a Lord's
prayer, however, in the seventeenth
chapter of John, and If you want to look
into the center of the soul of our Lord
you must turn to John and not to
"There is a wonderful prayer In
these two words, 'Our Father.' The
whole Bible Is in these words.
"Daniel Webster said that the great
est thought that crossed his brain was
that of his responsibility to his Maker.
Our responsibilities differ. My re
sponsibility would be different with my
son than it would be with some other
person's child. Until I know my rela
tions with God, I cannot know my own
Prayer Never Extinguished
"The text breaks into two parts —
praysr and privilege. In the Sermon
on the Mount the Lord tells the people
how to pray. Nowhere has he com
manded us to pray. It is taken for
granted that ■we should pray to our
God. Prayer haß been suppressed tem
porarily by the devil, but it has never
been extinguished.
"Prayers nre uttered by those in ex
treme danger, as was exemplified In
the recent San Francisco disaster. And
so it is on the sea. The most blasphe
mous will pray longer and louder than
a minister.
"I want you to know that prayer is
the only thing that makes us true men
and women. There is only one part of
the nature of man that the brute does
not possess, and that is prayer. The
animal never shows any attitude of
prayer, but he is possessed of the sen
sibilities of man, only not so in so fine
a degree. The animal has a moral
nature. That the horse and dog have
something within them that shows
guilt when wrong and joy when right
Is always evident." ' '•-. )■-'■ ■■'
The service was closed with the dedi
cation and the singing of the Doxology,
following whlrh benediction was given
by Rev. Dr. Mclntyre. i ■',';-.;'

which, like the Eastlake chapel, was
the outcome ot a zealous member of

To Miss Kwing and her devoted
mother is due the credit of the large
Sunday school already established In

the removal of the portable chapel.

markable Phenomenon of
Human History
Itev. Stephen A. Northrop of the
First Baptist church preached yester
day evening on the subject of "How
frill Te Account for Jesus Christ?"
He paid In part:
"It is generally recognized by friend
nr.d foe that Jesus Is the most remark
able phenomenon of human history.
However critics may differ respecting
him they nil ngree about him in this
regard. Consider his moral character,
weigh his actions, his Seeds and what
he was in relation to humanity. Many
noble characters have lived In this
world; it would take hours to name
them even; heroes, reformers, philan
thropists, sages. They were full of mis
takes, far from being perfect. Those
who nre among the first nre familiar
names — Lincoln, Gladstone, Cromwell,
Washington, Luther, Wilberforce/Paul
and Livingstone and scores like them.
As men of moral character. hs well ns
brilliancy of lendership they stand first.
But there Is one character that has
been constantly before the world for
ICOO years against whom none can find
fault. Keenest scrutiny by the sharpest
Intellects In the scientific world could
find no Haw In his character. This is
the universal verdict of men who think
and weigh data and facts. Surely tHe
poet voices the consensus of opinion
of all men who have studied the life,
mission and claims, ns well as char
acter, of Jesus Christ:
"No mortal can compare ,
' Among the sons, of men,
Fairer Is he than all the fair,
That (ills the heavenly train.
Scientists Bear Testimony
"Scientific men have not been slow
in their testimony to Jesus Christ.
When Jesus was born in Bethlehem the
first who came to him wero the poor
peasants, but the next were the scien
tific men of the age, who traveled from
nfar, who had seen the star in the east.
Not the priests of Jerusalem but the
astronomers— wise men— came with
their precious gifts. The men of science
of today bring the best gifts of their
genius and lay them at the feet of
"The two leading scientists of Great
Britain today, Lord Kelvin and Sir
Oliver Lodge, not only believe In Christ
rs a persoral Redeemer, but they fre
quently champion his cause at public
meetings. Recently a would-be scien
tist of England asked Lord Kelvin what
he considered his greatest discovery.
The prompt answer was: 'The greatest
discovery I ever made was Jesus Christ
as my only Savior.'
Answer Leading Questions
"In 1882 letters were published from
eight of the leading scientists of the
world In answer to three questions:
"First — Are a majority of the recog
r.ized authorities in physical science
hostile to Christianity?
'•Second— ls there any necessary an
tagonism between physical science and
the Christianity of Jesus Christ?
"Third-Is the study of physical
science of necessity prejudicial in the
student himself to a personal accept
ance of Christianity?
"The eight men referred to were Sir
John AY. Dawson of McGill college.
Prof. Charles A. Dana of Princeton
university, Prof. Tait of Edinburgh uni
versity, Prof. Kirkwood of Indiana uni
versity, the late Prof. Asa Gray and
Prof. Benjamin Peirce, both of Har
vard, Prof. Joseph Le Conte of the
University of California and Prof.
James D. Dana of Yale college. Not
one of this galaxy answered the second
and third question in the affirmative;
that is, rot one believed that there 'is
any necessary antagonism between
science and Christianity; and neither
prejudicial In the student himself to a
personal acceptance. One or two
thought thpre might be a samll major

"If the roll were called of men' of
science of the last 100 years hundreds
would acknowledge their allegiance to
Jesus Christ, while only a half dozen
might shake their heads in doubt. In
the Bodleian library of Oxford, Eng
land, the iargest library in the world,
may be found 800 names of representa
tive scientists affixed to a document
which declares belief in the authen
ticity of the holy scriptures. If these
searchers after divine truth found the
pearl of great price God grant that the
men and women of today may no
longer halt between two opinions, but
decide on the side of Jesus Christ at
Father, a Jeweler, Says He Will Make
a Jeweler of His Son — Proud
Mother Also Has Plans for
the Wee Daughter
To say that Mr. and Mrs. John P.
Delaney are happy parents Is to express
their feelings mildly.
They are doubly happy and proud,
for twins, a boy and a girl, were born
to them on the morning of May 28 at
the residence, 2129 Oak street.
Mr. Delaney is a prosperous Jeweler
with a Btore at 309 Houth Spring street.
He is 63 years of age i.nd his wife is 43.
These are Mr. and Mrs. Delaney's
first children, and probably for this
reason they take greater pride In their
offspring than they otherwise would.
Mr. Delaney Buys that he will name the
eon after himself and when he gets old
enough Is going to make him a partner
in the jewelry business.
When seen Sunday, Mrs. Delaney was
fondling the daughter, while her hus
band held the other twin. She carcßsed
the little one as only a mother can her

plans of her own for the girl.

11l Health Compels Temporary With.
drawal of Widely Known Slum
Worker From Main Street
Institutional Church
. In retiring for the present from the
work of the Union Rescue mission,
Superintendent Will Trotter does so
simply because his health has broken
down. He expects to resume the rescue
work' in which he has been prominent
as soon as he is physically able. .
Four years ago Mr. Trotter started
the movement which resulted in the
Union mission being started at 145
North Main street. He had done slml
iar work for Pacific Garden mission
on Van Buren street, Chicago, and
became known to evangelists all over
the country.
In Los Angeles Mr. Trotter has had
an efficient board of aid composed of
such men as Giles Kellogg, W. E. Mc-
Vay, Judge Curtis Wilbur and Frank
F. Pratt, who have made his burdens
lighter. "..':
Hundreds of men and women who cai!
Trotter's name blessed, because of his
helpfulness to them, regret to see his
temporary severance from the work,
although the different branches will he
kept up as usual. There are many
fields of institutional activity and all
of them will be tilled by volunteers
and others. • . :
Besides the Main street slum work
the city board also maintains a similar
activity In the City Rescue mission
at 319 Kast First street. There 'meet.
Ings are held as at Main etreet mission,
and the employment agency, gospel
wagon, the free breakfartß and othej
anencles for good are kept up day
after day and night after night.
Last year about 1400 men and women
were aided by the Union Rescue mis
sion. A fund Is now being gathered
which will in time Insure a home of Its
own for the mission. Whenever a
philanthropist comes forward and fur
nishes enough funds to insure. a sub
stantial foundation an enlarged scope
of rescue work will at once be adopted.
