Why Send the Petition.
Chicago Inter Ocean: A sec
ond thought is being giveri at
Oyster Bay to the petition and
protest against the Kisheuev mas
sacre. That it will be a sober
one must be the hope of eyery
friend of the president.
There is absolutely no reason
now why the petition should be
sent to St. Petersburg-.'^The
Czar and all his advisers know
how the American people feel
and they know the sentiment of
the president. If there is any
force in public opinion that force
has done its work in Russia.
If the Czar is open to any re
straining influence the present
general expression of outraged
feeling on the part of the Ameri
can people will have more influ
ence with him than any unwar
ranted and provocatiye act on the
part of our government.
If the object of the petition is
to ameliorate the condition of the
Jews in Russia it is vital to the
purpose that Russian resentment
be not aroused against the na
tion most inclined to espouse
the Jewish cause. The sending
of the petition undoubtedly would
strain the friendly relations be
tween the United States govern
ment and the Russian govern
ment and incapacitate the United
States for any future work in the
interest of the Jews or any other
Russian subjects.
If it is desirable that the pres
ent friendly relations between
Russia and the United States be
maintained the interest of the
Jews, why should any steps be
taken to break the friendly re
lations? Will not the president
be in a better position favorably
to influence the Russian govern
ment toward the Jews without
the Kishenev protest than with
it? If so, why should the peti
tion or protest be forwarded?
This is not a time for tenacious
clinging to a course dictated by
sentiment or righteous indigna
tion. The object to be accom
plished is to be kept in mind.
The welfare of this country is to
be considered. The future of the
Jews in Russia isjalso to be con
sidered.
We have nothing. to gain by
sending the petition. The Jews
in Russia have nothing to gain.
If the president send the petition
we lose much and take the risk of
losing much more.
Then why should this petition
be sent?
