most of such bodies, a system of en
velopes similar to that used by tho
American Jewish Relief Committee In
New York will probably be provided,

HEBREW WAR FUND CRY
For the first time in the history of the Jews of the United States
a general appeal has been made in aid of suffering Jews
suffering not from natural but unnatural causes.
A million of human beings are in dire distress and want, and all
precedents have been broken in the Senate of the United
States by having passed a resolution calling upon the Presi
dent of the United States to issue a proclamation to aid these
sufferers. The President has fixed Thursday, January 27. And
in addition to this ringing patriotic proclamation, I add my
humble voice 'in asking my fellow citizens of Washngton, in
whose midst I have lived for fifty-four years, and whoso
liberality an'd good will I appreciate, to contribute cheerfully
to this fund, whose object is to humanize and restore in a
measure the fallen fortunes of the victims of oppression and
This appeal is not only made to my own coreligionists, but to all men
and women whose hearts beat for the uplift and betterment
and righteousness of all mankind. It must be conceded -that
the Jew as a citizen is liberal and ever ready to contribute in
all directions where' his help can be of benefit, and it has been
his pride not to seek outside ajd or support, but this is an
extraordinary occasion, and can. only "be met by a united

very frankly admitted this after elec

at the time made It very clear that the

they would vote the Republican national
