DR. WISE TALKS OF JEWS Calls Attention to Organizations That Exclude Them. The Kev-. Dr. Stephen B. Wise, of the Free Synagogue, Spoke on "The Ethics of Conversion"' at the morning service in Car nepie Hall yesterday. n scored a. New York club, challenging tlie test of the court?, tor retaining on Its rolls "the name of a vulgar wrecker of a life insurance company" and "the name of a dishonored teacher of a university.*" His criticism was that ob this dose roll of one thousand or more members '"there j>re not more than half a dozen Jews, and that all of these have taken themselves out of the Jew! fellowship." He said in part: "It is |i;i>.-inß strange that much of the 'objection to the union meetings of the Syn agogue, the Unitarian and Universalist churches comes from thorn who spend much of their live* trying to meet on any plan»? — whether of social equality or social inequality — with non-Jews. Jews who have so little of self-reverence that they are Killing i" be accepted into non-Jewish so cieties upon any terms dictated by those association? with whom they covet. In ether words, it would seem a? if it were perfectly permissible for .lews to meet with D ■ Jews upon any lower cro'iii'l?. but the < up thine that is damaging i* to meet with then upon the higher grounds, upon the highest ground— the ground of common con secration to the common purposes of re ligious fellowship. "At the same timo attention should be called to the narrowness and prejudice of companies of men which deny to Jews the right of admission into certain circles be cause they arc Jews and for no other rea sons. If some groups which have nothing but money choose to exclude Jews from their inmost circles unless the Jews pay heavily for the privilege, as some are will ing- to do. that is their own business, and l. for my part, rejoice at the shut-outs .'nd pity th« shut-ins. Rut when a com pany of men, purporting to gather in the fellowship of literature, science, art and religion virtually excludes Jews from mem lwrship in that company, then I say that their fellowship rests upon a lie and that all the} stand for or purport to stand for i- neutralized and <i<-ni^d by their nets." MR.GRANT NOT SENSATIONAL Sermon on Newspapers . and Crime Based on Magazines. The Rev. Percy Btickne; Grant, rector of tlie Church of th* Ascension, discussed "Newspapers and Crime" last evening, ex plaining at the beginning that he did not wish to 1" sensational and that his facts wer«* derived from magazine articles. His definition of news was inferential, and was delivered m .i reminiscence of his world tour with the late Bishop Potter. Mr. <?rant said the further away from America they went the less news of Amer ica the Tapers printed. Finally there was none, when they readied India. When at last they returned home th<»y had h^ard no news of New York for six months. Mr. Grant ended: "And do you know in all that time we hadn't missed ■ bit of news?" Ther»- wore no mumurs of polite surprise at this. ■The power of Ihe pre««, like ti>e sword of DamwH<¥. holds the fear of ridicule or social Injury over the heads of many who other?, i■■«-•i ■■«-• would do things for lf:c general good," said Mr. Grant TJavlns: thus conveyed the idea that the typewriter and fountain pen, now mightier than the. sword, were suspended by hairs J^■,o^^. unsuspecting guests at the feast, he rounded his simile by identJfyiu; Damocles with the newspapers, saying the power •>•" organization and !'■• difficulty of gaining liberal damages against the press made it an enormous power. 'i"'i he asko.l how the papers use this enormous power. In answering his own question he said an educator bad for three months classified items in one of the leading newspapers of New York, with Hie following result: De moralizing. 2.2 "> items; unwholesome, 1,484; trivial, -.!"•: worth while, 3,900, or 39 per cent. "The power of suggestion is great,"' Mr. Grant said, and went on to tell what was found in the newspaper?. He said if the :■■ .1 news was looked for. the work of <"t>ngrejj : < ; nd other matters of the kind, in the places where this naturally would be sought, stories of ••rime were found, and that it was impossible to find the other without firrt soaking these Into the mind. "The newspaper?, in reality an educa tional agency, have become s mercantile j>gen<y," said Mr. Grant, "and we have got to uncommercialtee them." He declared the. only way this could be done was by suggestion, by people refusing to ■ ad papers that would not print what they want.

RENTS HIGH: WAGES STEADY Charity - Organization Society Finds Many Unnourished and Consumptives Neglected. The depressed industrial conditions which had their effect on the. work of the Charity Organization Society of this city in 1986 and I*l* did not exist when the work of the last year began. For this reason the twen ty-eighth animal report, made public yester day, indicates accomplishment of more ef fective things, the looking deeper into social problems already recognized. [Expectation to the contrary, increase in the cost of food lias not been a cognized factor in bringing families to dependence by increasing the number of charity cases, tho report / says, It has. however, been found necessary to increase th«» pensions, which were once sufficient, or to supply clothing or furniture and to arrange for new and more liberal pensions. Only in old and undesirable houses has there seen a decrease in rents. In certain neighborhoods there has been a tendency toward higher rents. Wages in the fami lies under, the Charity Organization have not increased except that here and there women who used to get ?! 2-"» a day going out to work hay-» been charging £1 50. On the other hand, in some neighborhoods the pay of working women has been cut down twenty-five rents. Economy in Food Supplies. m some families women have gone out to work to swell the household fund?. This has been particularly Irue of the lower West Side. Generally families under the society's care hav.e not found it feasible to jncrea.s.- .their Incomes. Accordinglj'. these people have Keen forced to meet in creased cost of living by economising, "or, rather tor it is not held to be eo<><l • onomy by Betting along without things to which they have been accustomed." Kent ha? been least susceptible of re duction. There i^s been ■ slight tendency to move into poorer neighborhoods or to take lodgers. Already the expenditure for clothing among these families wan down to hard pan: therefore the general way of meeting the increase in cost of supplies i>as i»f.o,i a serious reduction in the amount and quality of food. They have subsisted on meat "nee or twice a v.eek. fresh vege tables have been almost entirely Put out, wlille milk and butter have been reduced to their lowest terms. This is not all. The re port shows that there baa been a tendency toward th« Irreducible minimum of broad and tea and coffee, tl says: •'Effects <>f this have begun to be appar ent even in tl •■ adulte. an<! undernourish ment lias been noticed as never before in the children on the streets and hi the new families coming to tbe society. What the high prices have meant to ibe poor is epitomized in the uncomplaining comment of a self-supporting widow with little chil dren, a relative of a family who had ap plied f"r help, who said that since con densed milk had gone up two cents a can she could allow onlj one teaspoonful for ,up of noffee Instead of two, to which they had previously been accus tomed." Finding Work for Men. The joint application bureau was most successful last summer, because there has been a great demand for able bodied men on farms and at construction camps. Near ly eight hundred men got "permanent" work, which is almost double the number for IPOS-'O?. Homeless consumptives were less easily cared for. One man had been going to the bureau at intervals for four teen years. He remained in a hospital until he showed some improvement, then restlessly demanded his discharge, found a little work or begged a pittance and lived in cheap lodging houses until bis health be came so impaired ttiat be willingly re turned to the hospital. From October to May » social secretary at the Municipal Lodging House talked to 12,448 men, more than one-fifth of the total applicants. Of PT3 who were directed to employment agencies less than one-fourth reported there; of 1.556 sent to the joint ap plication bureau less than one-half report ed. Work was obtained for 256 men and in 1.,-, cases the work was outside of the city. Nine wayward boys were sent home. The intangible help, cheer and encouragement have, or course, not been estimated. One-fifth of the 11'.44^ men consulted had been in the city less than a week. Two fifths were natives of New York; another fourth and more were native Americans. More than one-third of the foreign born wen Irish, and young men predominated, two-thirds being less than forty and "8 per cent less than thirty years old. Sixty per cent admitted intemperate \habits. For Compulsory Labor Colonies. "This work has not revealed any new pocial problems no] suggested any new remedies for the old ones," the report Bays. "It has. however, emphasized the need for coinpulsoVy labor colonies, for rational treatment of drunkenness, for more vigor ous efforts to check the progress of ineffi ciency and demoralization in the men who an new to the condition of dependence on the city for a night's lodging and to coun teract the forces which tend to produce such a condition." Nearly one thousand persons are helped ...<l. year through the special employment bureau. Among these have been the aged, cripples, invalids and physical and mental defectives. The invalids were chiefly tu berculous convalescents, who generally ap plied only for temporary employment. The, society fight against tuberculosis l.aa never been more successful than during the last year. Co-operation with the Health 1 .■•.!; tiv showed the vitally important mires the city was supposed to be tak itu were being neglected. Thousands of consumptive poor remained unsupervised ami untaught in their tenement homes, spreading disease throughout the communi ty. More than M.006 consumptives ly> ere found in the city and more than 28,000 won unsupervised. In all moredhan 20,000 patients had drifted away from supervision. The ".Little Italy" district was found to be sadly lacking in tuberculosis clinics. This section, around Rasl 101 th street, har- i ■< re 25,000 Italian ■. among whom tubercu losj is prevalent. The result was that the scoietj' prepared a plan of adequate treat ment, and it was embodied in the Health Department's "estimates of expense for )'.'i<>" practically unchanged. OLD GUARD BALL JANUARY 26. The old Guard ball will be held in Madi son Square «!ardon on January 26. The first Old Guard ball was held in the Academy of Music on April s, i&&. From the veterans of the Light Guard and the City Guard the Old Guard was organised in is.'::; as an Independent military organiza tion.

NEW SUFFRAGE CITADEL Political Equality Association Opens "Shrine of Liberty." ENGLISH METHODS OPPOSED Women Will Rise to Any Physical Emergency They Think Ad visable, However. Thanks to Mrs. Oliver 11. P. Belmont, the stanch champion or "votes for women;" another suffrage citadel was opened last night, in Bast 34th street, near Uearin«t«n avenue. On one of its white walls hangs the blue suffragist flag, with five stars, rep te.=enitn^ Colorado, Utah, "Wyoming. Idaho arid Washington. On the flap is an inquir ing """ and crooked under it? elbow the letters "N. Y." For the suffrage advocates expect, that this state will be the. next to join their ranks. There are also pictures ;ind posters all about the wall?, most of them from England, depicting red coated, beef eating John Bulls depriving women of the ballot.' Mrs. Belmont was present at the begin ning of the "14th Assembly District Club of the Political Equality Association. as it is called. She asserted that few persons really grasped the significance of the suf fragist movement. ""Why. only a few evenings ago a man high. in public life said to me, 'Mrs. Bel mont, why are you trying to force men to push the perambulators?' '* she said, and added that she replied that the women were perfectly willing to push the perambula tor?, and also to give the occupant* a chance for their little lives. The audience beard Mrs. Amy Porter Boyer. who called; the now hall a "shrine of liberty," describe the campaign for suf frage in Oklahoma; Literature for the Indian voters was translated Into Ohoctavr and ("hickasaw by a Carlisle graduate, and the dodgers were printed "on yellOW Ochre paper with Indian red ink." Oklahoma did not adopt suffrage, but Mrs. Rover thinks that it will when the finest ion is brought up three years from now. The initiative and referendum pre vents it from being taken up before that time, and in the interim, Mrs. Boyer says, the work must be largely "educational." Another speaker was Dr. An,na Howard Shaw, who introduced herself by remark iner: "1 know the least about politics of any woman 1 ever saw. I could be fooled by any politician." But Dr. Shaw made this statement to contrast herself with other suffragists, who, she says, know po much about politics that they cannot be fooled by compromises of pledge? to sup port a definite party. She added, sar castically: "We can'l pledge ourselves. We don't knot* what we will think in a year *rom now on t h<- questions of the day. If w<» did pledge ourselves th^ ballot would be forced on women." Her idea of one way to work for suffrage is io try, through the m^n of the family, to defeat officeseekefs who oppose the cause, "rearing one set of voters and de feating the other." as she phrased it. Tn pleading for what she says, women are due she alluded to llie work of the pioneer women settlers of the country, and told a erim. dramatic story of her own entrance, as a twelve-year-old girl, into the wilder ness of Northern Michigan. '■My mother was an English woman. I was born in England," said Dr. Shaw. "Everything was strange even in the great cities. When we went West the twenty-hour journey of to-day took us four days. ■ One hundred miles of this we travelled in a wagon, fording streams and with mud and water to the hubs of the wheels. "We came to a hole cut out of the deep forest, and there was our home- •! log hut. There were no windows. v no doors— only places where they should have been. My mother rat down on the sod floor, put; her face in her hands and did not speak for hours. We did lot dare to speak to her, but finally she realized that we children needed comfort too, and she looked tip. But her face was changed, and the drawn look never left her all her life. I -will never forget it. My mother's heart broke that day." Bin Dr. Shaw turned to humor, too, anri saiil the old "Yon can't votf; what would you do ,:i tim^ ot war." argument used to suffragists by the men whs absurd. 'Tew of these men ever did any Rghtmir. and half of them wouldn't know a rifle from a liberty pole." she said with good humor. As t';ir as fighting goes, th<^ suffragists here won't adopt the English methods un less fot'fd to do so, according to T>r. «h.;iw. but they will rise to any physical etner gency if they think it advisable. "It's not a question of whether it is ladylike or un ladylike. The men running up Bunker Hill didn't have looking glasses in front of t hem to help their vanity."' .-aid the speaker. YV"mrn are ready to vote now, Dr. Shan maintains, f< r they have learnej most of ibe things that m -n bail to learn after they got the ballot, two recent magazine wxtters to the contrary notwithstanding, The matr azine writers came in for rb< ir liberal share of criticism. "But one great big reason women want the ballot is because they are mothers, and they want to make the wo: Id a tit rlaee for their daughters and sons to live in. I don't believe In the idea of reforming the criminal so that i,,. is nt to live in the world. I want to make the world the ririU sort of a place, first of all,*. 1 sh • •ini-h -d.
