years of careful planning and patient
effort, the ambition of Brooklyn lodge

July, the lodse passed resolutions ap
proving t!ie formation of the Brooklyn
Masonic Temple association of Oakland
< inc*/vpi:>rated). the purchase of a site,
and the presentation of buildiug plans
by a committee. The approved plan
:in«j design of the new edifice is that
submitted by Architect John Davis
Hatch, whose drawings will be fol
lowed in the construction of the temple.
The site upon which the structure will
*>c erected is the southeast corner of
y:a.si Fourteenth street and Eighth
The temple will be of the Spanish
colonial dosifrn, the feature of which
is to be massive simplicity. The walls
will be formed with broad unbroken
panels supported by wide buttresses
nnd iiankingr lowers. The largest of
\u25a0.ike towers will mark the main en
trance to the Icxlpe. The roofing 1 is to
be: of Spanish tile, and will be sup
ported on timbers and brackets. The
walls of the towers and the centers
of the panels will be finished with
rough cast pebble dashed cement, ac
centuated by troweled smooth connect
ing bands, base and moldings.
Except ior the ftore fronts there are
to be few windows in the walls, and
these will be divided into small lights
and glazed with amber glass so that
the effect of the plain wall surfaces
will be unbroken. The centers of the
panels will be ornamented with sym
bols €>f the order. The insignia over
the main doorway will be illuminated
by concealed lights.
The interior will be divided Into two
y floors, each of which will be fitted up
to' suit tlie requirements of the lodge
in . the most modern and elaborate
fashion. The first floor will comprise
three stores facing on Fourteenth
street, a stage and dressing- rooms at
the cast end. and a Social hall facing
on Eighth avenue, where the main en
trance to the floor wiil be. A pubiic
:-\u25a0 lobby with an auxiliary exit in the
. ba*e of the crest tower, will lead from
; the. entrance U the hall, and on either
side of the passage will be parlors.
.dressing rooms, and a large buffet con
: jiected directly with tlie social hall.
. Over the buffet and dressing rooms a
mezzanine story will be constructed
. with a gallery overlooking- the hall and
a stairway from the lobby and heating
and ventilating plant. A stairway will
; lead from the men's dressing rooms on
the east side directly to the lodgeroom
. floor.
: The northeast section of the second
floor will be taken up by the lodgerooni,
which will be finished in the doric or
der, with heavily beamed ceilings sup
ported on Howe trusses, and doric pi
lasters paneling the walls. There will
•lie. no windows In the room. It will
be illuminated by soundproof ceiling
and concealed electric lights. The
corner of the floor will com
prise the secretary's office, regalia
rooms and private passage to the main
reception hall. The induction aitd dress
ing rooms and the tiler's anteroom
will be at the west end of the lodge
room. A smoking room finished with
Learned ceilings and an open fireplace
will be at the west end, while on the
east side of the floor will be a ladies'
\u25a0colonial room in white and buff, with
cloak 'and dressing rooms ct the side.
W/>rk on the new temple will com
rcence in about two weeks, and it Is
«'xpect<M that the installation coremo
r.ies of the lodge will be held in its
new rjuarters during December. It i.=
contemplated that Elvesta chapter of
the Eastern Star. U. D.. recently or
ganized in East Oakland, will also oc

President of Oberlin College
Says That Character Is
Only Vital Thing for Man
OAKLAND, Aug. 2S.— Henry Church
ill King-, president of Oberlin college
and one of . the leading pulpit orators
of the day, was the speaker at . this
morning's services of the First Con
gregational church. He was introduced
by Rev. Charles R. Brown, pastor of
the church, who spoke of his recent
tour of the world and declared that
President King's writings had won him
recognition as one of the leaders in
modern religious'thought.
In taking for his subject the theme
'lacing the Facts of Life," the speak
er declared that after the real facts
of life had been summed up in their
true meaning and importance it would
be found that the only thing of vital
moment to man was character. He said
in part:
Character does not spring up
put of the ground. It roots itself
in certain great convictions, hopes
ideals and decisions, growing out
of principles that must be settled
every man for himself. The facts
of life are individual questions and
must be individually settled. They"
can not be made to order for us.
As the moral and spiritual in life
is real only to the degree in which
we make it real, so is character
just what we make of it.
There has been no greater revo
lution in the history of the earth
than that which separates this gen
eration from the first. The changes
are almost -incomprehensible from
every standpoint-— except one. The
great fundamental principles and
truths vthat always were and al
ways will be a part of the uni
verse have not changed.
* TTieri iere ._ is a great deal of unbelief
today, but the essence of this un
belief is not so much a denial of
the truth as it is a failure to treat
truth as true. In the degree that
we love truth more and victory
less we shall be inspired to find out
what it is that leads the other man
to believe or think as he does, and
in the end we shall always tind
that those same great common
facts, without beginning or end, lie
at the root out of which spring
convictions, hopes, ideals and de
risions that make characters in
harmony with eternity.
Should man permit himself to be
influenced by that within him
which links him with the dog he
could not at the same time link
himself with any upward, pro
gressive movement. For a double
nature is one, of the things that
defeats progress. Let us live on
such a plan that the righteous
will is always deepening and ex
panding. Our obligation to man
will then deepen in proportion with
our deepened insight, and we shall
realize that we can not fail alone
— neither can we triumph alone.
For one life is inevitably inter
woven with every other life It
touches. v
If this be true, we can not
choose whether .we shall influence
our fellow man or not. We are
bound to do so. But we can choose
just what kind of influence it shall
be. It always' will he in accord
ance with our convictions, hopes
ideals, and decisions. We can not
make a truth grip another man
which has not first gripped our
selves, and if we are to help our
fellow man in the great upward
and onward movement the great
est manner of. that assistance is to
direct it at ourselves.
As sure as th%re is/rationality in :
the universe, so' sure will the life
here emerge into., the life there,
and each one of us will give an
account to God. We must live our
future lives out with ourselves and '
our memories to catch the secret
of it all. Every man sees once
that ideal or vision of a man he
would be, and we have greatly; to
rejoice that ' one. has appeared
among us to point the way.

Berkeley Chief of Police Talks
of Modern System Em
. ployed in Department
BERKELEY, Aug. 28. — Before the
members of the Charming club of Berke
ley August Vollmer, chief of police, de
livered a talk this evening on the sub
ject of the golden rule policy, as prac
ticed by the Berkeley police force. The
club's meeting was held at the First
Unitarian* church: Chief Vollmer told
of his efforts to employ the system in
stituted by Chief Fred Kohler of the
Cleveland, 0., police force, and quoted
from him to show the nature of the
golden rule system. Vollmer said:
There is obviously a need for a
broader policy in dealing with po
lice .problems in this . state. Our
penitentiaries are now filled with
more criminals in proportion to our
population than any other state's.
The laws are intended to decrease
crime, but if this object is not at
tained under the present method of
enforcing them, it is obviously
necessary to try some other method.
The secret of the whole thing is to
accord better treatment to all.
whether guilty o r innocent: to do
toward them as we would want to
be done by under similar circum
stances. -
The causes for crime are many,
/and often beyond the criminal's
control. They are such things as
heredity, physical an.d moral make
up of the individual, emotional or
temperamental constitution, or the
. results of environment. The ques
tion wJiich confronts us is, what
course Is best to be pursued from a
police standpoint.
It is recognized that the object
of law is not revenge. It is neces
. sary to guard against defeating the
real purpose of the system. Before
putting a man's name in the police
book, it should be ascertained with
certainty that there is sufficient
evidence against him. It is a griev- .
ous mistake to judge every unfor
tunate who is arrested to be a
criminal. There are often miscar
riages of justice in this country,
because the unjust criticism of-tho
police, if they fail to secure convic
tion, often causes them to strain
the law to secure that end. The
public ideal is too often measured
i by the dime novel or the impossible
'Sherlock Holmes.
A policeman is a representative
. of the law, and as such should be
respected. But he can not be a
framer of public policy, because it
. is his duty to do as instructed.'
However, the most important du
ties are not governed by any spe
•citic instructions, and this is where
the golden rule policy comes in.
Chief Vollmer, in telling of his ap
plication of the policy of fair dealing
in Berkeley, quoted the six general
rules which he has.isued to his police
men. They are: : :
Rule 1— Juvenile* are n^ver to be placed in

District Because of Dup!i»
cates and Changes
OAKLAND, Aug. 2S.—Representa
tives from the numerous .improvement
clubs of the annexed district are
planning for a conference in a week
or two at which they will draw up a
petition to the* city council and the
street department, requesting that all
the cross streets' between Twenty-fifth
avenue and the eastern limits of Oak
land, Stanley road, be renamed imme
diately. Many of these streets have
two or three names, and with the re
cent opening of new tracts additional
names have been given to the high
ways that pass through, so that great
confusion exists.
Streets that cross East Fourteenth
street also often change their names
on crossing. Then names are dupli
cated in each district, such as Fitch
burg, Elmhurst. Melrose and Highland.
There are Jones* avenue, Jones street
and Jones road: two Fifth avenues,
one Fifth street; three Grand avenues.
It is proposed that all the streets be
changed to avenues, numbered consec
utively from Twenty-fifth to One Hun

Rope Around Neck Strenghtens
Theory of Coroner
SAX LEANDRO, Aug. 28.—A man's
skeleton, found lying in tfee hills near
Lake Chabot today with a bale rope
noosed about the neck, is believed by
Coroner Tisdale to be the remains of
Peter Bressl, a laborer who was ar
rested on suspicion of insanity on July
11 and sent from the receiving hospital
to the county infirmary.
The remains of a man of about 40
years were found this afternoon by a
hunter, who telephoned to the county
infirmary. Edward D. Whltcomb, an
attache of the infirmary, went to the
lake and got the remains. Coroner Tis
dale and Deputy Coroner Sargent
hunted the region where the body was
found, but could find no reason to be
lieve that Bressi had not killed him
self. The identification was made t»
papers and marks In the clothes.
•the skeleton, when Whitcomb found
it, was lying near the lake short, 15
feet from a clump of trees. It is sup
posed that Bressi ended his life by
hanging himself from a tree and that
the rope had rotted away. The body
fell and presumably slipped down the
slope away from the trees to its resting
The skeleton was clad in a brown
suit and heavy working shoes.
