Noted Clergymen Take Part in Presbyterian Ceremony
Congregation Sees Great
Progress Made in Pre
paring New House
of Worship
OAKLAND, Pec. I.—The last services
In the First Presbyterian church were
held at 11 o'clock this morning and at
3 o'clock this afternoon a large number
of persons gathered at Twenty-sixth
street and Broadway to witness the
paying of the cornerstone for the new
church edifice.
The ceremonies were conducted by
men well known in the higher circles
cf Presbyterian church life.
Rev. Frank L Goodspeed. pastor of
the church, presided, and among the
speakers were Rev. Robert F. Coyle.
former pastor, now a minister In Den
ver and moderator of the general as
sembly, and Rev. Hugh H. McCreery of
Carson City, Nev., moderator of the
California synod. Tn addition there
were a large number of well known
ministers and laymen on the platform.
The ceremonies opened with a hymn
by the choir, Percy A. R. Dow director.
The invocation was given by Rev. Dr.
Goodspeed, and this was followed by a
responsive reading conducted by Rev.
"William Nat Friend.
Following a scripture reading hy Rev.
Dr. Goodspeed the Temple quartet ren
dered "The Heavens Are Declaring." by
Beethoven. * n the choir were: First
tenor, F. S. Dowdle: second tenor. P. P.
.Vdamson: first bass. Clement P. Row
lands, and second bass, Clarence W.
< astell.
Rev. George W. White, pastor of the 1
First Met! h, offered a prayer
md R>\. i>r. McCreery spoke, on "The
Product of the Plant."
"The product of the plant must be
something of value in all cases," said
the speaker. "We find this true in the
' eases of the trees and the vines, and it
should be pane the less true in the
church. A chu • be a working
church—a practical thing. It be
a church where every home reached is
stimulated to pra'tice the things in
daily life that are taught in the
church. Thus the product of our
church plant Is character, built up by
close application to the principles of
Christianity and by long years of ef
"Contrary to the belief of some, the
t rest is not one in which we are
to clean up from the defilements of
the preceding six days. It is merely a
day on which we may absorb some
more of the. Master's teachings which
we may apply through the week. Da
les* we nave something that we can
apply in our daily life, our church
plant has produced nothing."
N At the close of Rev. Dr. McCreery's
address the quartet sang "God Is My
Strong Salvation," by Mendelssohn.
Rev. Dr. Cole made theHbddress of
the day, having made the trip from
Denver especially to be present. He
took as hi ssubject "Where We Rest
Our Faith." He attempted to show
that Presbyterians are discarding
ancient doctrines that have sidestepped
the real truths of the. scriptures, and
that they are pinnfng their faith to
realities of religious teaching.
"We live in tiinesof vast spiritual
and Intellectual unrest," he said. "Many
have drifted from the church in search
of newer things, and this is largely be
i ause so many of the old orthodox
teachings have seen struck out. We of
the faith have been seriously disturbed
by this and have wondered sometimes
it would end.
reason for the estrangement of
so many from the church is because
large numbers have pinned their faith
to generalities instead of to the facts
and truths of religious teaching.
"We have worried about the inspira
tion of the bible and have wondered
who wrote the Book of Job and others
whose authorship Is shrouded in mys
tery. What does it matter? Salva
tion is not to be found in paper and
ink. It is the substance we must seek
for. The stories of the garden of Eden,
Abel and tain. Jonah and the whale
and others are probably pure fiction, so
far a.< the words go, but they are as
true in substance as the multiplication
"It is the sam° with the doctrine of
hell. We no longer believe In the
physical bell, but wt still believe In a
hell of remorse.
"Doctrines are the human interpre
tation of truths and are susceptible to
age and growth."'
The contents of the box which was
laid in the cornerstone were read by
George l>. Gray and the stone was laid
in its place by Rev. Mr. McCreery. The
ceremonies closed with a benedict by
the T'iistor.

Many Suggestions Made by
Rev. Dr. Jump for Peo
ple's Adoption
OAKLAND, Dec. l.—Following the
suggestion recently made by the
progress and prosperity committee of
the Chamber of Commerce that Oakland
should have a fitting' creed. Rev. Her
bert A. Jump, pastor of the First Con
gregational church, offered a number of
the creeds in his sermon this morning.
He said in part:
I believe in the city of opportun
ity—may her doors of privilege be
open to rich and poor alike. May
her highways of industry be trav
eled by happy employers and con
tented employes walking side by
side. May the toiler always find a
worthy task awaiting him, and the
man of wealth always have possi
bilities of gain that shall become
channels of social service.
I believe in the city with a
climate for strong men—may In
dustry increase but not at the ex
pense of the human. May achieve
ments* be multiplied but not at the
cost of a decaying family life. May
men look unafraid upon battle. If
the battle be a struggle against in
justice or' corruption or brutality.
I believe in t&e city of old fash
ioned homes—may children ever be
esteemed a more precious posses
sion than dollars. May the mutual
love of husband and wife burn with
an unwavering romantic flame.
May mothers seek no keener joys
than those which hover over the
cradle. May fathers glory in the
paternal responsibilities that are
ineffably more rewarding than

$9,000 Department Urged to
Care for Disappointed
Folk During 1915
Welfare Commission to Be
Asked to Indorse Plan
Today; Clubs to Aid
OAKLAND, Bee. I.—There is a senti
ment among many students of local
affairs in favor of a department for
women in connection with the city gov
ernment. The Idea is not a new one
and its practicability has been tried in
coast communities and in the east with
satisfactory results.
The cost of maintenance of such a
department in Oakland Is estimated at
about $9,000 annually, but it is also
said that a large percentage of the
expense will be saved to the city
through the offices.
In view of the hundreds of women
who will come to the cities bordering
the bay during the Panama-Pacific in
ternational exposition, and trie friend
lessness and disappointment of many
In finding employment, it is urged by
the welfare workers that this is the
time to inaugurate such a department
of government. Several of the women's
clubs will stand behind the movement
if the present sentiment takes tangible
form. ■
Those deeming the woman's bureau a
necessity see an opportunity in the
election in April, when the matter can
be submitted as an initiative measure.
The welfare commission, which was
appointed last spring from the clubs of
the city, will probably be askecl at
their meeting tomorrow to indorse the
outlined plan. Miss Bessie Wood, a
member of the commission and presi
dent of the Child's Welfare league of
