STANFORD UNIVERSITY, May 21. —
The first actual ceremony marking the
graduation of the class of 1905 took
place In the Memorial Church this
morning, where the seniors gathered
with their friends to listen to a bacca
laureate sermon by Rev. S. B. L. Pen
rose, president of Whitman Colle««.
At 11 o'clock the gradnates entered
the church and filed slowly down tU«
long central aisle. The young woman
graduates, attired In the somber black
caps and gowns of scholars, led tha
procession, marching two abreast. They
were followed by the young men, sim
ilarly attired, and the heads of depart
ments. They were ushered to seats re
served for them.
Chaplain IX C. Gardner of Memorial
Church, who was in charge of taa ser
vices, offered prayers for th» outgoinr
students. According to an honored
custom, the first scripture lesson was
read by Dr. David Starr Jordan, presi
dent of tho university. The second les
son was given by Rev. C. E. Mllnes of
the First Methodist Church of Palo
The baccalaureate sermon, delivered
by Rev. Penrose. was full of Inspira
tion and good thoughts for the young
men and women whom It ushered into
the busy world. It was based upon a
double text taken from the H Corin
thians and I Peter; The simplicity
which is in Christ • • • in whom
are hid all treasures of knowledge."
Upon this thought the minister de
livered a powerful sermon, closing with
a direct benediction to the graduates.
His closing words were:
Members of the graduating class, I have pre
sented for your consideration the first deep
lesson of life. Receive. Let me conclude with
the second. Give. "Freely have ya received,
freely give." Receive the beat, then give your
best. \u25a0 God forbid that you- should not receive
your best or that you should give your worst.
The world needs life and grace and power. Be
givers, and 'so saviors of the world. "The God
of all grace, who hath called us Into hla eternal
glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suf
fered awhile, make you perfect, Kablish.
strengthen, settle you. To, him be glory and
dominion forever and ever. Amen."

There are many forms of oppression which
must be met by the laboring man of the preo
ent day, among - them being oppression of
wealth, the oppression of color, and the op
pression of the wrong sort of labor union.
! A serious form of union oppression is the
present apprentice laws of many labor unions.
So rigid are these laws In some organizations
that if a boy wishes to learn a particular
trade he must of necessity enter either a non
union or an open shop. The evils of this sy*
tem are obvious, for It operates ajralnst the
American boy who wishes to learn a trade In
favor of the skilled mechanic of foreign birth.
' Regarding strikes and boycotts, I believe
that in the near future they will be eliminated
by the unions for their own protection. It Is
well known that but a small fraction of the
total membership of any union takes part In
the active work of the organization. In this
way action is often voted which Is not fa
vored by the majority .of the members, but
which they must support because a vote has
been taken by the union.
In many instances labor troubles are brought
on by the floating workman, who, after aiding
with his vote to cause a strike or a boycott.
Immediately departs from the scene of the
trouble, leaving the man with a family whose
home Is In the strike-ridden district to bear
the brunt of the battle with which Be Is per
haps not in sympathy. .

SAUSALITO, May 21.— 0n Monday Jus
tice of the Peace J. H. Pryor will swear
to a complaint charging flve Chinese ar
rested for using- a v^uinese shrimp net to
catch fish in San Pablo Bay, and who
are j now. out on bonds, . with perjury.
They \ were arrested last | Wednesday by
Deputy Fish Commissioner John H. Da
vis. They were brought to this town,
their bonds were fixed , and their prelim
inary examination set for last Saturday.
At the preliminary examination , the
four Chinese swore that the Chinese ar
rested: by Davis were present, but when
the name of Ung Gingg was called Dep
uty Davis discovered that another Chi
nese had been substituted, and called the
substitution to the attention of the court.
Justice Pryor issued a bench warrant for
Ung Gingg and the deputy commissioner
executed It In short order.
The Justice was about to declare the
bond of Ung Gingg forfeited when a. flaw
was discovered in the document. One
bond was executed -by the flve Chinese,
although each man was charged on a
separate complaint, and? the word "he"
was used instead of "they." The court
then ordered the men put under heavier
bonds and demanded a separate bond for
each prisoner. Ah Mock was declared
guilty of criminal contempt of court and
sent to the County Jail for punishment.
Justice Pryor said to-day that he would
make an example of the Chinese.

Real Estate Company said:
"I feel no hesitation in saying that any
person who uses otdinary discretion in
the purchase of real estate in Oakland,
or for that matter anywhere in Alameda
County, will not only be insured against
loss or depreciation in value! but will be
reasonably sure of being able in the near
future .to dispose of the property at a
handsome profit. From, my experience in
the last two years I am satisfied/that
the value of Alameda County real estate
will advance much more rapidly than -it
has up to the present time." . -.

The power that gives yoti
life and motion is the nerve
force, or nerve fluid, located in
the nerve cells of the brain,
and sent out through the.
nerves to the various organs.
If you. are tired, nervous,
.irritable, cannot sleep; have
headache, feel stuffy, dull and
melancholy, or have neuralgia,
"rheumatism, backache, peri-
odical pains, indigestion, dys-
pepsia, stomach trouble, or the
kidneys and liver are inactive,
your life-current is weak.
Power-producing fuel is need-
ed ; something to increase nerve
energy — strengthen the nerves.
Dr. Miles' Restorative Ner-
vine is the fuel, you need. It
feeds the nerves, produces nerve
force, and restores vitality.
_"Wheh I befan taking: Dr. Miles'
Restorative Nervine and Anti-Pain.
Pills I was confined to my bed. I
had severe nervous spells, the result
of two years illness with malaria. I
srradnally grew so weak that I wa»
unable to sit up. The spells would
commence - with cold chills, and I
would become weak and almost help-
less. My circulation was poor. I
had. doctored \u25a0 right along; but grew
weaker and weaker. The Nervine
ssemed to- strengthen me right away
.and my circulation was better. I have
taken in/ all seven bottles of the
Nervine, and I om entirely well."
