THE JEWISH NEW YEAR.
Dr. H. Pereira Mendes Tells of Its
Ideals for the Hebr
Use.
Sir: Christians are seldom allowed to penetrate
Into Jewish sacred thought-precincts. This is an
undo- fact. Few Christians, therefore, know
the true eifrniSeance of the Jewish sacred season
which will begin next Sabbath with Rosh Hashana,
or New Year, and end with Simhat Thorah. or
Bejciclr.g of the Law. that' comes three weeks
later. The ceremonials need not be described, ex
cept by mention. What ideals they stand for is
of greater importance. But what is of greatest
importance is the prayer attitude of the Jew at
Buch a solemn season What does he pray for?
What are the aspirations of his inmost soul at the
moment when he is, if we may use the expression,
in confidential communion with his Creator?
We are told that the New Tear nnd the Atone
ment Day, whiih fo^ows on th* tenth day after.
are called Days of Awe. or Yamiri Noraim. We
are not EatlsSed witn that information. There
rr.ust be something rncro serious, more heart mov
ir.g. behind that expression. We are told that the
Shofar, or P.arn'? Horn, the ancient trumpet, is
Bounded with traditional notes. And those who
have heard the vibrant, j*cwerful. rinsing sounds
and tluir thriving modulations knovr their strange
effect on souls attuned to the harmonies of the
holy season. But we would kr.ow the full signifl
•cance of the ShoJar. Why is just that instrument
wed? Why not the harp, so dear to the Jews by
reason of their great King's skill thereon, and by
its pathetic aim* !■ 11l ill with the rivers of Baby-
Ism and the wfllOWl that ........ waters?
Why not a diver trumpet, like those venerated by
the past loving Hebrew, because ordered -. the
wilderness on the way from hoary Egypt, and
like those which, to this day, are represented on
the Arch of T.iuf. in Rome, with other spoils car
ried by him from Jerusalem?
Like al! tbe holy days and festivals of the He
brews, the New Year la radiant with ideals which
affect not the Jew merely, but the human being,
every thinking man that breathes, of any or no
crf-ed. we will say. which affects all humanity.
For the Hebrew does not rtand on the stage of
ii«ory for his own profit or gloi-y. He is there- to
ber.ef-t the world at large, or, to quote the Bible
phraseology, "to be a blessing" to all mankind.
"to all the families of tee earth."
The keynote of the great harmony whose notes
ar.d modulations carry the human soul, and r.ot
the Hebrew soul only, upward to the higher human
Heal? is sounded immediately by the very name
cf the holy day— New Year. New Year, not a sea
son for banquets, rf-joicir.gs, idle congratulations,
«oial nothings, but a season for solemn cemmunion
with the Creator: For it marks the traditionaJ
asriversaiT of creation's completion by the ap
pearance of n-.cn on earth. The year SG6S begins,
dd thus it brings -us face to face with the object
Cf creation as far as man's finite mind can cum
pehecd the work of the Mind Infinite.
What Hebrews understand by tne object or pur
pose cf creation is best Indicated by opening the
prayer book of the traditional Jew. who preserves
to this day faithfully the aspirations, hopes and
Ideals cf his fathers in their centuried march
through human history. We find therein constant
reference to the Book of Life, constant petition to
be written therein, as it is quaintly and poetically
phrased, constant prayer to be renjembered for
life.
On the surface this may appear 10 be a mere
lon^inff for another grur.t of lite on earth. But
the frequent reference to creation broadens this
view, ur.til we discern that future life is really
meant. And the New Year ideal becomes tnus
trar.sS?-ured with the gluv.- a.nd beauty of etemai
Zile Creation from tr.e Hebrew point of view
means spiritual dt-velopmer.t. "going irom strengtn
to strength." This earth is o^ly a temporary rest
izg plact, in th* onward ar.d upward irarch or the
human soul. Creation n:eaj;s lor tr*e Hebrew much_
crt than Just the earth.' Thi* he regards as v.
mere speck ;n the ur.iversv. which in his eyes is
the realm of his Kins' o: Kii^s! Oa the New Year
the Jew etanas face to fate with, creation's vast
scheme, face to face with the eternities. Is it to
ix? wondered at, Uiereiore, if to the thinking: Jew
the expression "write us in the Uook of Life'
means infinitely more than a mere yearning lor
the temporal enjoyments of Lh:s eartiily life.' In
<ie«-d t ai this season the orthodox Jew will have
nore of them, will have positively naught to do
with enjoyment. From New Year to gTtat Atone
ment Day he will visit no theatre; wui attend r.o
wedsHnp; win permit none where he has any voice:
will sit. down to no banquet. He will, on the con
trary, r* conscious uely of the ettrriities and of
ail LUoat- emotions, t^pirationis, deeds and words
may make after them. The very r/ioe he gives
to the ten da\-«: is profocnCJy si«r:iflcant— "the tea
Cays of prnltence."
Hence the music of the Jewish soul at this sea
bot. i? in the saddened minor key. A glance at
the Jewish prayer book, shows this. Indeed, what
we have called the "prayer attitude" of the Jew
is the bt-st indication of what the Jew really stands
for in htiman history. We find petitions for par
don. Indeed, the very title. "Sc-lichoth," piven to
<-*-rtui!i parts of the season's ritual Is eloquent
«-nt»ugh- For the word means "prayers for par
don." For now can tbe human soul be nttefi for
true life, rf-ai me. lif^ in eternity, unless pardon
tx» obtained for its sins, and now can pardon be
obtained except by amendment of conduct?
We find aUusions to the creation of the universe,
and <-oup:ed therewith the reminder of its being a
day or seaaon cf Judgment— "this day the world
w.-ts created, this diy all creatures Etand for judg
ment." And this thrice repeated prayer continues
In touching!}' human language— "We stand either aa
children or as s-rvar.ts. If as children. O, then,
do thou have compassion upon us, even as ■ father
hath compassion upon his children. It as servant ?.
then behold our eyea are turned to wjilt on The<j
in wisrful suspense, until Thou wilt be wfacious
unto us. and until Thou dent bring to light our
Bjr.tenca. O Holy One." This; allusion to the
Fatntrnood is emp^SLSized by the strangely fre
quer-t repetition of the p.iraiCe. "Our Fathc- who
art in heaven." throughout this penitential season
Furthermore, we nnd frequent allusion to the
Kingdom of Heaves, and we ev«»n meet the phrase
"for iiune is the Kingdom." Not iess mtWttrtJng
lr. this connection is ai:other frerJently repeated
itestence. "Agsxanaired and hallowt-d be tie great
Niune." We are told that t>.~se phrases and prayers
ere of extreme arilquity. and th« they are used
by tu'. '::-.- V thro -^ co " the world, whether of
tx-pharCic or Ascenaz lineage, having been carried
by them in their wanderings through the age«

ROOT FITTEST MAN TO NOMINATE.
| To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I do not like Elihu Root. Why, it Is unneees
j sari- to say. but his personality is not at all at
! tractive to me. Yet, despite all this. I recognize
I his great ability, not reckoning it quite so highly.
; rtrhaps, as it is said Mr. Roosevelt did in speak
ing of him when he left the Cabinet.
But he !s the fittest man for the Republicans to
j nominate for Governor at Their convention, soon
I to meet. In this. I think, all who look for -he best
. and strongest will agree. Then, why not nor
n mate him?
True, he lias -ii.l he. does not -want the nor
n: ination: nor -would it add to his political stature.
Still, without a doubt, if he shall be nominated
onnnnmonslr. he will feel it his duty to make the
j choice of his party paramount, and sink personal
; considerations.
I ao hope The Tribune will lend a helping hand.

Tribune Wins Crusade Against
Blockades in 40th and 42d Sts.
As a result of The Tribune's crusadn against
the vile condition of blockade and confusion in
Fortieth and Forty-second flf.. the debris and un
necessary hummocks that were so lon# a menace
to It:.:' have at last been cleared away. Except
for the obstruction caused by the building and
renovation uf two large structures on the south
side of Forty-second-st. near Fourtlj-ave^. the
thoroughfare .is clear. Even Fortieih-st. from
Flfth-ave. to Sixth-aye.. that was so long cluttered
up with all sorts of obstructions, is now in good
condition.

Scientists at Geographic Congress
Seek to Solve Them.
'FROM THE TRIBCN-E BfREAC.]
Washington, Sept. 9.— lnterest increases with
each succeeding session or the International Geo
graphic Congress, wnich is scheduled to end its
meetings, in this city to-morrow. The programme
; to-day included papers from many of the leading
j geographers of the world. In the audience were
i a large number of prominent diplomats, who were
j attentive listeners to the proceedings. The wives
1 and daughters of several of the foreign delegates
were also noticeable among the spectators. Lively
interest was shown. in spite of the technicality
of the subjects discussed.
English- la the language adopted as the standard
for the congress, but as there are nearly as many
i European delegates as there are Americans and
Englishmen the foreigners are at a decided dis
advantage. Fortunately, however, the scientists
are all men of wide culture, and almost all of
them can understand and be understood, whatever
may be the language spoken. Officially, the French,
German, English, Italian and Spanish languages
are recognized, and in all of these communications
may be addressed 1:1 formal manner to the con
jrress.
The congress was also entertained this morning
with the reading- of numerous cablegrams from
all parts of the world in reply to the international
messages of greeting sent out last night after the
flashing of the midnight time signal from the
United Stales Naval Observatory-
One of the most interesting papers read to-day
"was that on "Gorges and Waterfalls of Central
New-York." by Professor R. S. Tarr. of Cornell
University This paper, illustrated by about forty
lantern slides, pointed out the remarkable abun
dance of gorges and falls near the heads of lakes
Cayuga and Seneca, of which Watklns. Montour
and Enileld Glens and Tnughannock Fails are the
most widely known. The numerous falls and
gorges occur where the streams tributary to the
Cayuga and Seneca valleys descend from the
bro.id upland valleys over a steep slope In the valley
walls. The cause for this slope is not yet deter
mined, though. it is known to be due to either one
of two causes: First, deepening of the main valleys
by ice erosion during the glacial period, or, second,
by rapid cutting along the main valleys by the
rivers that occupied them during the glacial period.
Professor Tarr is now Investigating this subject
for tho United States Geographical Survey.
By slides it was also shown that the great va
riety and beauty of the gorges and falls were due
to three causes: First, the presence of a series of
buried gorges which are crossed by the post-glacial
streams, which have cut cut the glacial drift,
forming a series of amphitheatres with narrow
post-glacial gorces above rind below; secor.d, the
influence, of Joint planes, and third. Use effect of
differences in the texture of the nearly horizontal
strata. Thei?e Joints were made clear by the slides.
The paper was discussed by Professoi JI. F. Reid,
of Johns Hopkins University; Bailey Willis, of the
United States Geographical Survey and serretary
of th*? section: Dr. J. W. Spencer, of Washington,
and Professor S. Penck. of Vlennn. Austria, who
pointed out a close rt»s»mbiance between the con
ditions in Central New-YorK and the lake region of
Italy.

SLOCUH COMMITTEE DISCHAEGED.
Thanked by the Mayor — Ail Eecords Prob

The. members of the Slocum relief :.nitt<«
submitted their report to Mayor McClellan yester
day. The chairman, Herman Ridder, Matt] told
the Mayor that the work of the commit tee was
completed, H. B. Scharmana then presented the
report as previously published.
Mr. Ridder suggested that It would bo wise, to
have expert accountants appointed to supervise
the work of th« committee; to have, all the records
tabulated and approved, and then to have the
whole record bun «o that there might bo no
publicity given the work of th* committee of
which the relatives of the victims might b«!
ashamed in later years. These suggestions wrru
received with applause. The Rev. Mr. Haan,
pastor of St. Mark's Evangelical Church, thanked
■:.■■ Mayor for his help and praised the
work of the committee. Mr Itldder wished to
thank the police, particularly Inspector Bchmltt
bersi-r, and the school teachers. Mayor McClellan
said he felt a deep sense of obligation toward the
committee. All had done their work well, but he
felt that the success if the committee was due
In large measure to Mr Ridder. Mr. Ridder sug
gested that the committee be discharged, but that
a sub-committee be retained to dispose of the bal
ance of the funds, amounting to about $30,000. It
was bo decided, and Messrs. Ridder. Bebarmann
and Straubenmuller were named as the sub-com
mittee. The Mayor will have supervision over it.
IT MADE KENTUCKY COLONEL DEITNK
Whiskey on Bowery Not Genuine, He Says
— Pool Sends Him Home in Cab.
' Dr. Michael Flood, of Louisville, said to have
been a colonel in the Confederate finny in the
ClTil "War, was arraigned yesterday before Magis
trate Pool on a charge of intoxication.
"If you are from Kentucky, as you say you are."
asked the magistrate, "how is It that you got
drank? I understand that Kentucky gentlemen
drink, but never become intoxicated to the extent
that they require police assistance."
#- It Is true, your honah." was the reply, "that I
am accustomed to drinking Kentucky whiskey, but
the stuff that they serve ror Kentucky whiskey on
that Bowery of yours is not the genuine goods by a
long sight. 1 only had a f«?\v drinks, but. few aa
they were, they certainly made me drunk."
"What would you do if I wtre to discharge you?"
•I'd fit into a cab and go straight to No. 71
High-Bt,. Brooklyn, where I am visiting."
"Officer"— this to the policeman who made the
arrest— "call a cab for this man, arrange for the
fare in advance, tell the colonel that he must pay,
get the cabman's number, and tell him not to stop
at a single saloon on the way, and have him take
this man home and report to you on post after
ward."
FAREWELL NIGHT OF FIREWORKS.
The. final performance of "Decatur" and the
blowing up of the Philadelphia, as well as the last
fireworks display of the season, will be given in
Pain's Amphitheatre at Maohs.ttan ■ Beach, this
evening.
CHOICE OF EIGHT CLUBS.
Unusual Courtesy to Harvard Men
Made Homeless by Repairs.
The new Harvard Club building, which ex
tends back from the present clubhouse in "West
Forty-fourth-st. to Forty-flfth-st., and the con
struction of -which has been delayed long be
yond the expected time by the building strikes,
is rapidly nearing completion now, and on next
Thursday evening the old clubhouse will be
closed so that the rear wall may be removed
and the two buildings connected into one. This
operation will require a few weeks at least, pos
sibly much more time, and while it is being com
pleted the members of the Harvard Club will
share the privileges of eight other New-York
clubs, which have been kindly extended.
In fact, the members of the Harvard Club
will for the time being have a choice of dining
places larger than most men ever achieve. The
clubs which have opened their doors to the
houseless members of the Harvard Club are the
Calumet, the City, the Manhattan, the New-
York Yacht, the Princeton, the Republican, the
St. Nicholas and the Play.
The bookkeeping will doubtless prove a bit
complicated, but the Harvard Club will open an
office in the Bristol Building, at Flfth-ave. and
Forty-second-st., while the alterations are going
on, where members may have their mail sent
and settle all accounts. For a time this office
will be almost a clearing house for clubs.
The no-- Harvard Club building has been de
signed by McKim. Mead & White, and follows
closely or. the exterior the Colonial design of the
old building, which will still remain the unal
tered front of the enlarged clubhouse. "Within,
however, the addition will be much more spacious
and elegant than the old portion of the house,
containing on the ground floor, immediately
back of the present club, a daylit cafe, and back
of that a dining and genera] meeting room run
ning back to Forty-fifth-st., tilling the entire
width of the building and extending three stories
In height.
This room will be> finished in English oak, with
stained windows at the far end. and will sug
gest he beautiful meeting room in the Har
vard Union, at Cambridge. Above will be a
library not unlike that at the Players in gen
eral shape and arrangement, several stories of
bedrooms, small meeting rooms and three squash
courts. The stairs in the new addition, the fur
nishings and the woodwork have been designed
with an eye to maintaining the comfortable
Colonial effect of the old club and with a sug
gestion inevitably of the university town. The
entire club when completed will be. It is ex
pected, although rich and spacious, no less un
ostentatious and Cantabrigian— if the term may
be used— than before.

INCONVENIENCE TO ASTOE LIBEAEY.
Delay in Finishing Bryant Park Structure
Causes Overflow of Books.
The delay In flntih»"sT the superstructure of the
New-York Public Library in Bryant Park, it was
learned yesterday, is causing Inconvenience at tho
Astor Library, in Lafayette Place. The spaco
thtro Is so congesttd that books in certain sections
are "double banked." and even trundled to the base
ment out of sight. Many shelves of theological
works, for which thero Is :i relatively small de
mand, have, from lack of space, been carted to
the Lenox Library, where they, too. lie in the
basement.
Until the new public library Is completed, no
attempt will bo made to provide a "student's
library" for those who wish to study law. At
present virtually the only means of information
accessible to these Btudents is the law library at
Columbia University.
Although the three- years allowed to rforerosa
Brothers to finish toe contract expired last month,
so far as can be learned, no application for an ex
tension of time has been made.
NOTES OF THE STAGE.
E. H. Sothern and Miss Marlowe Start for
Chicago for Their Opening.
E. H. Sothern and Miss Marlowe, who are to
appear together this season In .1 revival of "Romeo
and Juliet," will start ti>-day for Chicago, where
they will open their engagement at the Illinois
Theatre on the. 19th. A company of 140 people
went with them. "Hamlet" and "Much. Ado About
Nothing" will also be played occasionally durin-g
their season. David W artield also gees .th his
company to-day to Atlantic City, where his season
in his new play by David Belaseo, begins next
Monday. Ho will come to New- York in a week.
Final rehearsals of George Ade's new comedy,
"The College Widow," were held yesterday in the
Garden Theatre, before an audience made up of
members of all Mr. Sarage's other companies who
am either playing or r*»hparsing in town. The play
opens In Washington Monday^ and comes to the
Garden Theatre a week from Tuesday.
Herbert Kek-ey and Effle Shannon will come to
the Lyric Theatre in "Taps" -v week from to-night,
two days earlier than planned. The change is
made to avoid a conflict with Mr. Crane's pro
duction of "Business Is Business." ar.d Madame
Schuman-Helnk'a appearance in comic opera.
It was learned yesterday that on September 1.
at the Little Churrh Around the Corner. Loudon <-.'.

provinces.
GOOD OUTLOOK FOR FULL THEATRES.
The theatrical season never opened to better
business throughout the country, according: to re
ports received from various cities by various man
agers. Reports that have Just been received by the
Klaw & Erlanger syndicate from their entire cir
cuit justifies this .statement. The reason assigned
for the generally satisfactory oondltion Is the ap
parent assurance entertained by the business com
munities everywhere that there will be no change
of administration. The theatregoers amon* busi

tember 23. have appealed to the Secretary of War.
Under tha provisions of the personnel law boats
swains gunners, carpenters and saiimakera of ten
years or more 01 service may be commissioned
with the rank next after ensign. The executive
committee in charge of the launching planned that

midshipmen six, "commissioned warrant officers"
three, and warrant officers I wo.
Some of the "commissioned warrant officers" pro
tested against that designation, and also against
getting three tickets wnen midshipmen ■were to
have six. They appealed to the commandant, who
replied that he could not Interfere with the execu
tive conunlttee. The dissatisfied warrant officers
