Writing SATURDAY EVENING, RICH JEWS DON'T REPRESENT RACE On the Contrary, Eabbi Hirsch Says, They Have Brought Discredit on Judaism. Deprecates Efforts of Jews to Imi tate the Ways of the Gentiles. New York Sun Special Service. Chicago, Dec. 19"Judaism Is judged bv the deeds of rich Jews alone, and yet there is no greater fallacy than the assumption that the ut.li Jews represent our people," said Dr. Emil Hirsch, in an address last night. the individual acts of the wealthy lep lesentatives of om people reflect, foi good oi for evil, upon the entire race. If one of the Rothschilds buys a rare lap dog, the act is recoided in (he newspapers of the world as one which is typical of the people ol Israel in all lands But wheie -we have one Rothschilds we have hundie ds of thousands of poor Ghet to folk, winning a scanty living bv ardu ous toil The Jews have never been nch as a people, and it is the uch Jew, not the peasant, who has bi ought disci edit upon the childien of Israel. Dr. Hirsch held up before his audi ence as an ideal the warrior, Judas Maccabeus, the day being an anniver sary of the Maccabean revolt, and told his hearers the history of that struggle. Si de glances at contempor aiy topics enlivened the narrative. Among these were the following re marks: - " I am a fool/' A Costly Experiment. To be an empire is always a costly experiment W e America ns will find that out in a little while. Our Philippine in v estment has not been successful from a financial point of view.

W Pan banks. Of course, the story may not be truebu t it comes from awfully wise people. And they won't admit having sold the market short or being unfriendly to the Roosevelt admin istration. Tip Deserxed Re&pee t. What happened during the ninety days which followed the publication of the above, shows that the tip de served less flippant treatment. The secretary of the treasury tells of it, in his annual report, just published, m the following words. Within a year the market value of stocks and bonds, the proper and legiti mate holdings of the people, has depre ciated in an amount estimated far in ex cess of the cost of four years' devasta t ing civil war. Notwithstandi ng this enoi mous and inconceivable shrinkage, it has not affected m a noticeable degree other classes of pioperty Banking institu tions have exhibited no suggestion of weakness, few business failures have oc curred, there has been but a slight cur tailment in commercial enterprises, very little apparent hardship and absolutely no fear of any depreciation of any form of currency. To all appearances the crisis is passed. There now exists sca nt reason for apprehensioncertainly no occasion for alarm. The raid on speculative values was a success. The attempt to bring on a general panic faifed. That is the whole stoiy. Had conditions been a little different, had the country been a litt le less firm as to its financial and economic foundations, had the pros perity been less real and credits a bit more expanded, there would certainly have been another tale to relate. Just What Happened. The slump in the speculative secur ities maiket began just about the time the tip was passed to your correspond ent. A glance at the files of the mar ket reports for that period will show the course they took. One stock shows it as well as another, for the drop took m everything listed on the boards. O n the nisi day of May Atchison com mon was quoted at $82 a share, by the middle of August it was quoted at $62and at times it was even lower. Over 30 per cent lost in less than 100 days' Pennsylvania stock on the fiist of May was quoted at $137 a share, by the middle of August it was down to $112. Between the same dates Union Pacific dropped from $91 to $72, and United States Steel (in which thousands of working people were in duced to invest their earnings) fell from $35 to $9. Until the date of this alleged con spiracy, stock values had remained quite stable. During the five months previous to this date they did not rise or fall moie than an average of 5 points altogether. There has been a good deal of puz zling and wondering among business men in all parts of the country over this depreciation in securities. A s Secretary Shaw notes in his report, it has borne no logic al i elation to coi re lated business conditions. I t was, as he says, "inconceivable." Other busi ness was prosperous, railroad earnings were laiger than ever, exports showed no falling off, crops were abundant, the currency was soundin fact no cause could be assigned for the Wall street phenomena. Has the explanation been furnished? O r was it merely a coincidence? W. W . Jermane. TREATY WITH CHINA Is Approved by the SenateEffective When Exchanged. Washington, Dec. 19.The senate, in executive session, yesterday ratified the new commercial treaty with China, which was negotiated last summer by Minister Conger. Only one senator, Mr. Nelson of Minnesota, opposed the treaty. H e made a set speech against it, contend ing that the United States was not getting all that it deserved from China, and that the opportunity had been seized by Russia to acquire ad vantages in the Manchurian and north China trade, which rightfully be longed, in part at leas t, to this coun try. Mi. Cullom (rep., 111.) urged that the Chinese government had reason to expect prompt action on the part of the United States and that the fav orable position of the United States m China would be impaired if any thing occurred to give the Chinese reason to doubt the good faith of this country. M r Morgan said he regarded the convention as one of the best ever negotiated by Mr. Hay and referred especially to the protection afforded to missionaries by Article 17 of the treaty. The latifications of the treaty must be exchanged in Washington by Oct. 8, 1904. When this has been done the treaty -will be proclaimed and will im mediately become effective. The treaty is to remain in force ten years. INQUIRY AND DENUNCIATION Senators Daniel and Morgan Continue to Harass Administration.

Mr. Payne said he saw no objection to the adoption of the resolution, and suggested that li the minority had no more remarks to make on the sub ject he thought it would be unani mously adopted. The resolution was then agreed to without division by practically a unanimous vote, thus displacing the resolution authonzmg the committee on expenditures 5f the postoffice de partment to request the intoi mation.

Conference in New York Results in a Determination to Decrease Output by 3,000,000 Barrels in the Next Three Months Government Will B e a Heavy Purchaser for Irriga- tion Work and for Panama Canal. From Tho Journal Bureau, Colorado Building:, Washington. Washington, Dec. 19. For some time past officials of the geological survey and the department of tb,e in terior have been watching the course of the Association of Portland Cement Manufacturers with considerable in terest, and consequently much com ment has been caused by the receipt of information concerning the secret meeting of the association held in New Yoik, at Sherry's, last week, at which it was decided to close down all the plants of the association for a period of six weeks between Jan. 1 and April 1, 1904. A large quantity of cement will be used by the goyernment in the next two years in connection with irrigat ing plants in the arid land regions, the nitration plant in the District of Columbia and the Panama canal project. A s the association includes about forty-five of the largest manu facturers of Portland cement, and its members control a large percentage of the $350,000,000 invested in this industry, this agreement will have an immense influen ce in curtailing the production of cement between now and the opening of the spring build ing operations. The plants belong ing to members of the association have a daily capacity of between 75,- 000 and 100,000 barrels of cement, so that a shut-down for forty-two days means a decrease m the cement pio duction in the United States of more than 3,000,000 barrels in the next three months. I t is understood that each member of the association repotted the amount ' of cement on hand on Dec. 1, at the mills he represented, and that the supply vv*as found to be less than had been anticipated. The consensus of opinion was that a verv considerable decrease in the importation of cement might be expected during the coming year The imports of the current year amounted to more than 2,000,000 barrels on the Atlantic cpast alone, but unsatisfactory prices are expect e d to cause a decrease. The association will also attempt to secure more satisfactory rates from the railroad companies both for the local and export trade along the lin es of those recently made on steel and other building materials. I n this connection the association has sub mitted a proposition to the secretary of the interioi, looking toward fur nishing cement for the Tonto Basin dam in" Arizona, where 200,000 bar rels of cement will be consumed, but because of the high freight rates ce ment which costs $1.75 f o b at San Francisco cannot be delivered at the dam site for less than five or six dollars. The government has purchased a cement mil l, which will be at the dis posal of manufacturers desiring to make cement at the site of the dam, but as fuel oil to the amount of 90,- 000 barrels will be consumed m man ufacturing 200,000 barrels of cement, and this oil, together with the ma chinery for the mill, will have to be tiansported to the dam, the mill will not be erected unless there is such a differen ce between the bids as will justify the government in putting it in operation. Over One Hundred Miners Reached the Surface in Safety at Early Stages. Houghton, Mich., Dec. 19.The Isle Royale mine is burning fiercely and trapped in the burning shaft are two miners and a drill boy. About seven ty miners who vveie working shaft No. 2 escaped easily, and about the same number who were working in No. 1 reached the surface, some of them be ing brought up by rescue parties. A carriage is being sent down into the north drift in the hope that the imprisoned men may reach a point in the workings to which the gas from the flam es cannot reach. They cannot be rescued, however, until the file in No. 1 shaft .burns itself out, and there is little hope for them. They are two Petersons, father and son, and a drill boy named Gregorovick. Both shafts of the Is le Royale are down to the twenty-fourth level, 2,000 feet below the surface. The fire was discovered yesterday by the chief tim berman while riding to the surface in the skip. The flames were under the timbering at the twelfth level and had a good start. A t the shafthouse, on the surface, the flames are held down by streams from a hose, but the shaft will be gut ted and it may be a week or two be fore the mine can be re-entered. Two abandoned shafts of the old mine, 300 and 400 feet north of No. 1 shaft, are emitting smoke and sparks. I N BERNHARDT'S NEW PLAY THE FAMOUS FRENCH ACTRESS SCORES THE GREATEST SUC- CESS O F HER CAREER, New York Sun Special Service. Paris, Dec. 19.Bernhardt, the di vine Sara never scored such a tri umph as last night when, as the Moor i sh girl in Sardou's "La Sorciere," she brought her audience to its feet in cheers in a ll of the five short acts. The play, produced in the actress' own theater, scored a triumph alike for tragedienne and author. A s Zoroya, the daughter of a Moor ish physician, Mme. Bernhardt threw into the portrayal of the character a fire and spirit she seldom has at tained before. entle to the verge of tears, revengeful to the point of murder, a virago one minute and a weeping woman the nextthe actress VQM the gamut of human emotions. With her the audience wept and with her it stormed. The action of the play passes in Toledo in the middle ages. Zoiova is enamored of Don Enrique, a Span i sh captain, who returns her passion, forgetting momentarily his betrothal to Juana, the daughter of the gov ernor of the citv. Juana, who is a sleep walker, seeks a cure for her affliction at the hands of Zoroya, whose scientific accomplishments have earned for her the leputation of a sorceress. Juana incidentally re veals to Zorova that the man whom she is to marry on the morrow is Don Enrique. Zoroya determines to prevent the marriage and, obtaining entrance to the governor's palace, puts Juana to sleep. Don Enrique at the threshold of the bridal chamber finds a veiled woman who overwhelms him with re proaches. H e explains that he was betrothed to Juana before he knew Zoroya and that honor compelled the fulfillment of his pledge. Zoroya is about to forgive him when an officer of the inquisition arrives to arrest her for witchcraft. Don Enrique resists the officer and he and Zoroya are car ried before the inquisition tribunal. Bernhardt has a splendid scene m which Zoroya, In order to save Don Enrique, confesses whatever is le quired of her. She declares that she bewitched Don Enrique, and that she alone is the guilt} one. The court acquits the captain and condemns the woman to the stake, Guessing the truth, Don Enrique ar rives at the place of execution at the same moment the pardon for Zoroya from the governor is leceived. The mob tries to seize her when Don En rique draws his sword and defends her until he is overpowered. Then Zoroya conveys poison to the captain by a kis s, and the two die together amid the clamor of the mob. W. W . Jei mane. Piso's Cure40 years on the market, and still the best for Coughs and Cold"!
