NEWS OF OAKLAND, BERKELEY, ALAMEDA, HAYWARD AND SAN LEANDRO
TRIBUTE TO MEMORY
OF DARIUS O. MILLS
Philosophical Union of State
University Adopts Resolu*
tions of Appreciation

BERKELEY. Jan. 2?.— At a public
meeting of the philosophical union of
ihe University of California last night
resolutions were passed honoring the
memory of D. O. Mills, millionaire and
philanthropist, whose benefactions to i
the university were many. He pro
vided a fund for the establishment of
a chair of philosophy which whs held
by Prof. George Holmes Howison, re
lently retired. The resolutions of the
union follow:
In the death of D. O. Mills, the
department of philosophy of the
I'niversity of California has lost its
honored and beloved founder. The
expression which it would give to
its sense of bereavement is no mere
formal tribute paid in natural
course to a munificent benefactor.
It is an expression of personal loss,
a tribute of love. For Mills was
much more than the founder of
the department of philosophy. He
was its intimate friend, its" never
, ceasing ally.
Though, with characteristic mod
esty of refraining utterly from any
direction of the department's af
fairs, liis interest in its welfare
was TJeep and abiding. iTie knew of
its men. of its activities, of its
ideals. He was ready wftb counsel:
but readier, always, with quiet
sympathy. The men of the depart
ment not only loved him, they were
proud of his sterling integrity; his
pane ideality: his high minded love
«if truth and right. They knew
him, therefore, not only as" a gen
erous benefactor, but, in his simple
kindliness and threat humanity, as
an inspiration for the work which
it was in his heart that they
The department wishes, there
fore, to make public acknowledg
ment of its deep obligations to its
beloved founder and to express its
sense of immeasurable loss. It
wishes, too. to extend to those who
were dear to him his profound and
li^artfelt sympathy in tlrfeir great
affliction.

Entertainment Is Certain
To Be Brilliant Success
.A Three society favorites who will take part in the kirmess dances.
RECTOR DEFENDS
WHIST AND DANCE
Rev. 0. St. John Scott Gives
His Views on Fascinating
Social Pastimes
OAKLAND, Jan. 29.— Rev. O. St. John
Scott, rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal
church, has made public, through the
monthly church "Annunciator," his
views" on dancing a.nd whist. Both of
these diversions the rector favors as
innocent pastimes. He says:
For the benefit of those who may
think that dancing for the young
people in the church is a new de
parture on the part of the rector's
policies here, he would point out
that at the first entertainment
given at Reed hall some six years
ago his permission was gladly
given for dancing to wind up the
program. He has ever believed In
dancing as an innocent pastime.
Under the chaperonage of the
church It becomes a sanctified
pleasure. The same holds true of
whist. No prizes are allowed for
the reason that such baits are
gambling in miniature. In* the
social life of many large eastern
churches dancing and cards are
features of pleasure allowed those
so inclined. The rector, therefore,
is establishing no new and dan
gerous precedent, but only what
he has always believed in and had
in his own home. If such pleasure
is wrong for the church, by what
process of reasoning is it made
right for the home?
FORMER POLICEMAN ARRESTEDr-Oakland,
Jan. 29.— John Logan Rodgers, a deputy con
stable and former policeman who loet his Job
because he shot at n negro without reason,
was arreftted last night on charges of being

THREE NEW BOATS
FOR ALAMEDA RUN
Southern Pacific to Build Steel
Ferries to Operate With
Electric System
ALAMEDA, Jan. 29.— Plans for three
new twinscrew ferryboats to be placed
on the run between San Francisco and
the Alameda mole have been prepared
by the. Southern Pacific company, ac
cording- to Councilman William Ham
mond Jr., who says that the informa
tion was given to him by a Southern
Pacific company official. J;-tv>
The boats are to be built somewhat
on the lines of the Key Route vessels,
but will be larger and more conveni
ently equipped. They will be con
structed entirely of steel and will be
for passengers only.
i It is said that the three new'ferry
boats will take the place of vessels now
on the Alameda mole run and the older
craft will be placed on the Oakland
mole run.
Under the method planned for oper
ating the new boats in conjunction
with the electric trains to be placed in"
service passengers from San Francisco
for this city will no longer be carried
by way of the Oakland mole. All Ala
meda traffic'and the traffic for the out
lying districts east of Fruitvale will be
from San Francisco by way of the Ala
meda mole.
The Southern Pacific is understood to
be preparing to ask for a franchise for
an electric road along the north side
by way of the marsh and Clement ave
nue. This road, if it is built, will prob
ably be used exclusively for the oper
ating of suburban trains running
through this city. The -local service
will be acommodated by the Lincoln
avenue and the Encinal avenue lines,
which are to be operated as a loop.
FIX SEWZK ROUTE— Alameda, Jan. 29.— The
city council has definitely decided that the
proposed sewer along the south side \u25a0 shall bo
carried across the city at. the west end nnd
connected with the north . side sewer, which
empties into the estuary. '

the festival. Faithful drilling ..and
careful preparation have been the rule

how. each performer will look in cos
tume beside the others.

force to witness .the spectacle and to
applaud the social favorites- who are
to take part. From the graceful dances
that have been arranged much pleas

mance dance Miss* Esther Musser " and
Miss: Georgina ' Sneathem "will' appear
with others. Miss Katherine McElrath,
another social favorite, will lend her
presence to the performance.

boxes in the immense Piedmont pavil

boxes have been constructed to meet the
demand. These will be sold for $75 for
