morrow night establishing a night
school in the basement of the high

a plan conceived by Superintendent Lw

educational advantages for the many

’MODERN TEMPLE’
10 BE THEME OF
NOTABLE SERMON
Rabbi Invites the Public io
Hear His Talk at Temple
Beth-EI Tomorrow Night.
THE FEAST OF CONCLUSION
‘abbi Marks Will Tell of the
Reformed Judaism, Its
Its Spread and Influence.
Preaching on the subject, “The Mod
ern Temple,’’ Rabbi Samuel Marks, pas
tor of the San Antonio Jewish con
gregation, will deliver a sermon of in
tense interest to both Jew aud Gentile
Wednesday evening at Temple Beth-EI,
and the San Autonio public is invited.
The rise of reformed Judaism, its
spread and influence, the modern syna
gogue and its functions and relations
to both Jew and non-Jew will be treated
upon from the standpoint' of history
and psychological and religious growth.
The occasion of the service, for which
the special sermon of this import is
particularly appropriate, is the eighth
day of the Feast of Tabernacles, known
as the Feast of Conclusion, socAllcd
because of its being the last of the
holy days of the year, as mentioned in
Leviticus 23-26; Nos. 29-35, Chronicles
7-9. Nehemiah 8-18.
The blessing in the final section of
Deuteronomy is read in the modern
temple on that day and the annual
reading of the Pentatuch is thus con
cluded, though recommended the fol
lowing Sabbath, which is known as
habbos bereishis, the Sabbath of Gene
sis.
On the Feast of Conclusion special
prayers are offered for rain to replenish
the earth in its due season and that
the soil may be productive and fruit
ful for the coming year: “And upon
the fields of our land let rpln and dew
descend at the right season and in such
manner as to be for every one’s bless
ing and the hurt of none. For every
one’s joy and the woe of none. For
everv one’s life and the death of none.
O, jS-osper this our nation in all its
industries and its commerce on land
and sea, so that there may be no want
or scarcity anywhere and all be satis
fied because Thou hast opened Thj
hand for us.”
From a historical and theologica.
standpoint the sermon of Rabbi Marks
Wednesday night will prove of much
interest. It will be one of the first
explanations of and treatises upon the
religion of the modern Hebrew in this
city.
The services will begin at 8 o’clock.
In addition to the regular choral re
sponses several duets will be rendered
by the choir,»whose members are Mrs.
L. L. Marks, soprano; Mrs. Ellen llerff
Duerler, alto; Charles Lee, tenor; Mr.
Daggett, basso.

and Oakland and Then Goes
Across the Frisco.
HE TAKES PART IN PARADES

Y. M. C. A. Building in San
Francisco This Evening,
Associated Press.
San Francisco, Oet. s.—With tho ar
rival of his private ear, the Mayflower,
at Sixteenth street station in Oakland
at 7:20 o’clock this morning. President
Taft began one of the most strenuous
days of his whirl around the country.
After breakfast Mayor Hodsghead of
Berkley, accompanied by a reception
committee of twenty citizens, boarded
the Mayflower and extended a formal
welcome to the president. The May
flower was then switched to the Berkley
line and at 8 o’clock the party left the
train for automobiles and carriages,
which were waiting at Center street sta
tion in Berkley, and through streets
rendered almost impassable by a surg
ing erewd of cheering people the pres
ident was driven to the campus of the
University of California. Under an es
cort of university cadets he was taken
to the Greek theater, the first open air
theater built in America. Here the
president was given a public reception.
When he appeared on the stage he re
ceived an ovation from the crowd of ten
thousand citizens and students. After
the reception the party re-entered the
conveyances and was driven to the foot
ball field, where 6000 school children of
Berkley gathered to do honor to the
chief executive.
The feature of the Greek theater re
ception which charmed the president
was the appearance there of a Philip
pine constabulary band, which furnish
ed the music for the occasion.
From Berkley the president and mem
bers of his party proceeded in automo
biles to the K. E. Y. Route inn, in Oak
land, where the official welcome of
that eity was extended by Mayor Mott.
At the inn, a detachment of the Thir
teenth United States infantry had been
drawn up to sahife the president and a
company of marines formed part of his
escort in the combined military and
civic parade. At Lake Merritt, the pa
rade was halted long cnAigh for the
president to make a brief address.
The official schedule provided for the
party to board the revenue launch Gob
den gate for a trip across San Fran
cisco bay at 11:35. The official parade
at San Francisco will be followed by
the laying of the corner stone of the
new Young Men’s Christian association
building.
President Taft later prepared to at
tend the reception at the Union League
club and then retire to his hotel for a
brief rest, in preparation fdt the ban
quet in his honor tonight.

Navel Men Not Impressed With Martial
Uses of the Aeroplane.
Associated Press.
New York, Oct. 5. —Admiral Sir Ed
ward Seymour of the British fleet said
of Wright’s flight yesterday:
“After seeing Mr. Wright’s wonder
ful exhibition, I am sure the aeroplane
is here to stay. The thing that im
pressed me most was the steadiness of
his machine. In warfare, I think the
aeroplane will be limited to scoutiug.
Of course, it could carry explosives and
drop them on a ship, but I think its use
for that purpose is impracticable.”
Grand Admiral Von Koester of the
German navy said:
“The idea of war has never entered
my head in connection with the aero
plane. Its use in time of war would be
problematical.”
Sir Wm. Henry White, formerly chief
constructor for the British navy, said:
“The nations of the earth are not
disturbed over the likelihood of the
aeroplane’s possible use in war. As a
matter of fact, the contingency of di
rigibles or aeroplanes carrying explos
ives has been taken into serious con
sideration by the British admiralty and |
there are guns on some of England’s j
big ships which can be fired at an ole- i
vation. thus insuring the destruction of I
the airship.” 1

John R Walsh of Chicago Must
Serve Sentence Unless the
Supreme Court Interferes
HIS TERM IS FIVE YEARS
Was Tried and Convicted of
Unlawfully Using Funds of
of Bank He Represented.
A.aociatcd Press.
Chicago, 111., Oct. 5. —The verdict of
the trial court, which found John R.
Walsh guilty of misapplication of funds
of the Chicago National bank, was af
firmed by the United States circuit
court of appeals here today. Walsh was
convicted nearly two years ago and
sentenced to five years in the federal
prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.
Walsh must serve -the sentence of
five years imprisonment imposed upon
him by the trial jnry unless the su
preme court upsets today’s affirmation
of the verdiet of guilty. Counsel for
Walsh, in the appeal, laid the greatest
stress on what they alleged was laek
of criminal intent on the part of the
defendant in a very lengthy brief.
Much law was quoted to show the con
victed banker, newspaper publisher and
railroad owner, used the funds of his
bank in what he considered a legiti
nude manner.
The opinion of the court of appeals,
written by Judge Humphrey, and hand
ed down by Judge Grosscup, was brief
and confined almost wholly to the ques
tion of criminal intent. The allegation
that Juror Palmer was unduly influ
enced, was dismissed with a word.
Counsel for Walsh have thirty days
in which to file an application for a
rehearing by the court of appeals.
Meanwhile ho will bo at liberty under
the present bond of $50,000. The court
mom was jammed with a crowd, which
overflowed into the corridor during the
proceedings.
An eleventh hour attempt of the de
fense to file additional citations design
ed to show lack of criminal intent came
to naught. The matter was taken under
consideration by those concerned before
court opened and the decision was
reached. The new arguments will in
no wise alter the opinion as already
written.

that on Aug. 23, 1909, Dr. Simmons
made him a written offer of the sale
of the road in question, which extends
from Macdona on the line of the In

The prayer is that defendant be com
pelled to convey to plaintiff the road,
or, at least, the 690 shares owned
him and that he be required to bring
into court his books and papers, show
ing its cost.
