'I hi- Is the llrst of a series of meeting? t i.it will be held In the lending cities of Uner'ia wheto the attitude of the Jons toward the war will be dlsctlsed. "1 do not care to dl.'ciias the tiuestlon as to who is right and who Is wrong In this war," said Dr. Lsin. "Nor do 1 hold that public opinion Is always right. , Thnt is a separate question, "What I do wish to point out, however, Is how far the nations are forced, when they find j themselves In a dangerous position, to j take Into consideration the power of the j world's opinion. You may go contrary , tn it in times of petite, but when a catas trophe conies, on becomes more pliant, I because the entire world sits In Judg I ment, and history may come to collect ' old debts. As an example we see that even the eminent has suddenly be- e and u.ive to the fact that Jewis'.i soldiers are sacrificing their lives in this war. This war was necessary In nrdr to open Its eyes to see that seven million Jews in its domains arc also human beings. At present, however, the Itiiflan Government Is making onl promise', and these under a 'blind ad dress.' She has them announced through anonmous sources in Copenhagen. But this Is characteristic of war times. Even the great bear has bestirred itself and begun to heed public opinion." Speaking of the attitude of the Jews throughout the world to the war, ho aid: "But as the Jews are scattered through out the world, and they must tight brother against brother. It Is quite hard to apportion their sympathies. It is al most commendable that Germany is not angered with the KusMan Jewish sol diers, and Russia with Its German and Austrian Jewish soldiers. England, how eer, desires greatly that all Jews who are not taking a definite side In the war should sympathize with England and with England's caut". "It appears strange that at this time there Is no united Jewish public opinion jn the present war. The Jewish opinion i greutly scatwea because the Jewish nation is scattered." Dr. Lovin also spoke of the terrible conditions in Pa!etltic as a result of the war. Palestine is dependent for Its ex istence upon the rest of the world. And when the icst of the world Is at war there is nothing left for the Jews In BELGIANS REFUSE KAISER'S REPORTED PEACE OFFER German Overtures Bejected nnd King Albert Will Stand by Allies.

Hemmed In on three sides of the dis trict Known as the forest of Aigonne, a German army Is today In a serlouB predicament nnd awaits either capture or destruction. On their front are the victorious squad rons of British cavalry, to their left, on tho east, are the strong forts of Verdun, with their formidable garrisons, while on their right to the west are tho rapidly approaching army of Belgians. Only to the rear lies safety, and tho nature of the country Is such that a rapid retreat means a virtual tout. The only source of supplies for this army Is their base of Elcge and should the Belgians appear in sufficient force evea this thin ltuu of communication will be broken. The loss of the line of communica tion will probably apply to tho German army In a day or two's time. WIipii it does apply the German retreat will have become a disaster greater than Leipzig. Every official report goes to show how I sound Is General Joffre's plan of leading I the invasion further and further away rrom tneir Dasc.
