ations around our entrance. Vnless we offer the
people PomethinK unusual they will -not take
the trouble to come in. because the building is
cluttered with waffoldinc and noisy with the
soond of the iron workers' automatic riveters.
W> realize this, and are adoptinc radical meth
ods to overcome conditions. The lots we offer
are In the heart of the Santa Fc districts. clAse
to the Key Route and carlines. Such property
is petting scarce, and we. have no doubt that
we will sell every lot before the week is up.
We expect to keep thinps humming for six
months, while our building Is under construc
tion, and thouch the lots to follow may not be
as desirable to some people as the Rronp we
are now specializing, they will all be good buys,
well worth lookinjr into.
The Syndicate is in a position to offer some

Used at Special Services
Tomorrow Morning
BERKELEY, Nov. 18.— St. John's
Presbyterian congregation of this city,
which has outgrown its chapel at Col
lege avenue and Derby street, will open
its new church adjoining the chapel
Sunday with special services. The rapid
growth of the church is due in a large
measure to the work of Rev. George G.
Eldridge, pastor for the last two years.
\ The chapel in which the congrega
tion has been holding its services is
simple in design, with rustic beauty.
This is the keynote of the new build
ing, which was planned by Miss Julia
Morgan, and is carried N one story
higher, with a large central vestibule.
The interior of pine and redwood is
in stof t tones of brown. A choir space,
seating 40 singers, is behind the pulpit
and in front of a Kimball or^an of
wonderful quality. Pastor's study.'
choir room, clubrooms, private class
rooms, a large ladies' parlor, with com
plete kitchen equipment, and janitor's
apartments, are provided.
The furnishing throughout In pews,
fixtures and carpets is simple and. rich.
The motif of the "St. John's CrosV. is
cleverly suggested in design for glass,
fixtures and the carving of the. pews.
A regular communion service in the
church will -be held Sunday morning
and a praise service .in the .evening.
The formal dedication w}ll ; take place
Sunday, November 27.'

Says That Comparison With
Alameda Is Erroneous
Pacific Gas and Electric Company,
445 Sutter street. San Francisco.
November 18. 1910.
Editor Call: I note an editorial in
your issue of October 27 subheaded
"Plundered by the Lighting Company,"
which apparently had its origin in a
communication In the Alameda Times-
Star, in which communication it is stat
ed that the rate charged In San Fran
cisco, Oakland and Berkeley is from
9 to 11 cents per kilowatt hour, against
7 cents in Alameda. This you repeat in
your editorial, and comment thereon.
; The statement in the Alameda Times
Star is an erroneous one. The rate pre
vailing in San- Francisco is. fixed by or
dinance, of the board of supervisors,
having for a lighting rate' a maximum
of 9 cents and a minimum of 5.4 cents.
In none of the cities mentioned is. a
rate" charged in excess of 9 cents, and
the majority of curr#it sold under the
ordinance in San Francisco, and by the
same rates In Oakland, is less than the
7 cent rate charged in the, city of Ala
meda. The average rate "for all cur
rent, sold^in both cities is between 5
and 6 cents per kilowatt hour.
I ask that you will, in fairness to the
companies involved, publish 'this com
munication in order that the erroneous
statements,^ arid upon which you relied
for your article, may be corrected.
Yours ; very truly. .

Anti-Asiatic Laundry League
Here Comments on Figures
The secretary of the Anti-Japanese
laundry league in his report at Thurs
day night's meeting called attention -to
the official census figures "for. the Ha
waiian, islands.
These figures show an increase of
15.54S Japanese in the last 10 years
and a decrease of 3.65S Ha'waiJans dur
ing the same decade. The -totals are:
Japanese, 1900. 61.115, and 191(L 79,663.
Hawaiians, 1900. 29,787, and 19™, 2^,099.
"This," said the secretary!" "is the In
evitable result 1 of the encouragement of
Japanese industries and should be a
lesson to every Callfornian.'
"There is no longer a race problem
in theislands. * The Hawaiian's have ac
cepted their._ f ate and have resigned
themselves to the fact that. while the
full blood Hawaiians are decreasing,
Asiatic-Hawaiians are ' .increasing,
which condition will prolong, the ex
istence of Hawaiian blood.",

Agree to Limit Entertaining and
Tell Where Evenings
Will Be Spent
BERKELEY, Nov. 18. — No opposition
developed at the meeting of the women
students of the university In Califor
nia hall this morning and the new reg
ulations . and "suggestions" went
through triumphantly.
It will now be a breach of good faith
on the campus If women have callers
after 10:30 o'clock or if they k*ep
evening engagements without telling:
where they are'going.' Incidentally all
walks on the campus or otherwise must
end at 10 o'clock.
Miss . Rose Gardner presided at the
meeting and Miss Lucy Sprague was
one of the speakers. The way had
been carefully oiled, however, and the
only suggestions made were by Miss
Leigh Stafford, who asked if tlie 10
o'clock rule was compulsory- She
was informed that such was not tha
case, only the sentiment of the women
being in favor of it.
The suggestions were drawn up by
the new women's students affairs com
mittee, composed of Miss Rose ~Gard
ner, chairman, and Misses Cheryl Mer
rill, Mabel Sadler, Ann iHunt and .Irene
Patchett, and every woman In the uni
versity will receive a copy by malk
At the beginning of next term the
regulations - and suggestions, adopted
without a dissenting vote, will form a
prominent part of the study sched-'
ules submitted by the faculty.
The rules are the result of agitation
on the campus among the women for
the last two years, and point to the
taking over by the women of their own
affairs, now In the hands largely of the
general student body, composed of men
and women.
Grand Jury. Continues Investi-
gation of Assessor's Office
OAKLAND, Nov. 18. — A number of
deputies of County Assessor Henry P.
Dalton added their testimony today to
that previously given by other deputies
before the grand jury to the effect that
it was not the practice of their chief
to exact contributions from them out
of their salaries.
Those who testified today were James
Bargones, G. W. Westlake, E. E. Hunt.
R. E. Colburn, O. L." Hasse. H. C. Alns
worth. J. F. Pirie. C. A. Jackson. J. C.
Oole, Jm S. Hughes, A. L. Thompson, E.
O. Tuttle and Charles Cummings. All
testified that they had never paid Dal
ton anything out of their salaries.
This testimony was given In refuta
tion of the charge made by Frank
Shay, a former deputy of Dalton, that
he had given the assessor $23 a month
out of his salary.
Thomas M. Robinson, who collected
the money.. according to Shay, and who
is Dalton's chief deputy, is still out
of town. He will return In a few
days, when the "grand jury will ex
amine him. The hearing was continued
until Tuesday.
-•Leslie Blackburn, instigator of the
charge against Dalton, also gave testi
mony today, but did not finish.
