To His Excellency, Theodore Roosevelt President of the United States: Word has come out of Russia that the Christmas Festival is to bi ■ signalized at Kishineff by another such massacre of the Jews as excitet the horror of the world during Raster 1903. Your excellency is the head of the most enlighted nation in the civil ized world and ou behalf of one million of our brethren who have fount refuge in your country, we address this petition, to prevent what i worse than any war—the torturing and slaying of men and womei through race hatred and religious prejudice. We feel confident tlial your voice in this cause of humanity will not go unheeded. We have reliable information that the same unfounded accusations a; preceded the hideous Kishineff massacre are again being published there—that the same violent and incendiary attacks are being circulatec representing Jews slaying Christian children as a sacrifice for a religi 1 ous ceremony. It is unnecessary to state to an intelligent mind that human sacrifice is as foreign to the religious observance of the Jews a: it Is foreign to any civilized Church or creed, but the Easter massacre: are evident that such monstrous accusations are received and accepted by the ignorant, among whom the Jews of Kishineff are compelled tc live. The Russian officials have not prevented this inciting to riot, and the public press recounts that the Jews of Kishineff have been notified that in the event of the attacks they must not defend themselves, on pain oi having the Czar’s soldiers set upon them. In such an emergency, we implore your Excellency to direct the at tention of the Russian Government to the threatened massacre, that countless human lives may be saved and desolation averted. The friendly relation now existing between Russia and the United States and the human cause in which your action is solicited, assure us that your words will have great weight. K. H.
