TOTTENVILEE, Dec. 12.—The Vis iting Nurse Association of Staten Is land, which has been caring for the sick In their homes the last four months, Is appealing for funds to con tinue the work. During the lajt month, Its nurses have made approxi mately 400 calls. The report of the association states that 9 0 per cent, of sickness, it has been found, Is endured in the home against 10 per cent. In the hospitals. Adequate provision for the health of a community requires that the poor as well as the rich should bo able to secure home nursing. "In the families of the poor it is usually better for the mother to re main at home when sick, except in desperate cases," continues the re port. "The father must work; the mother, even from her bed, can care for the household and the children. Small children usually do better when cared for at home than In a hospital. The mother Is frequently right in be- ) ing reluctant to give up her child to ι the institution. She needs the assist- ' ance of visits from a trained nurse as | much as of a doctor. "It behooves us today to conserve the health of every citizen. We muet : give thought to the ailments of I human beings as well as to Bruin and potatoes. The drain coming- on the ranks of the physician will make It increasingly difficult to get doctor's services. The nurse is a more impor- I tant factor than ever' in the commun ity." The office of the association is at 105 Stuyvesant place. Mrs. Llna Rogers Struthers is the supervising nurse, and J. H. R. Edgar is the treasurer. The work of the association extends over tho entire island and the nurses have done good work slnco they have started. RED CROSS BENEFIT AT TRADE SCHOOL TONIGHT By Special Correspondent.

SOXJTH AMIiOY, Dec. 12:—When he opinion of Justice Bergen, of the Supreme Court, was read last night it the council meeting, relative to the leclsion in favor of the city against Councilman Hackett, a heated argu iient followed. Councilman Hackett took the floor ind stated that the city had been Tavored with tho decision of the Su preme Court In this case and asked the councilmen If in their opinion it «■as justice. He stated that law is one thing and Justice another. He said: "You looked for law and you got It; did you get Justice with It." He declared that the councilmen who had been Instrumental in the building of tills wall, without even having it come up before the council meeting and appearing on the minutes of the common council, should ask them selves the question, "Am I guilty or am I not," and he stated, "you will then know where you get off at." He said he was referring to the council men who went to Jersey City and took an oath that the contract was legal In all its proceedings. He then declared in the eves of tho law the council of this city wins, but In the eyes of justice, the people win. Councilman Stanton spoke after Mr. Hackett was through. He stated that his conscience In this respect was clear, and Is now Justified by the decision of the court. Mr. Stanton stated that the taxpayers were al ways behind the movements of tho council and would now have to put up with the costs of the courts In this case, but he asked Councilman Hac kett who financed him. He stated that Councilman Hackett should ask himself If liis conscience was clear, as he knew (not by proof, but by hearsay) that the councilman from the fourth district never went into his own pockets for the money to flglit this case, and to pay the lawyers in Jersey City and Trenton. Mr. Stan ton stated that in every respect he thought the city was right, as the grade of the street could not be made without part of the property adjoining this wall should have to be torn down, and were willing to assist their neighbors when they were in trouble, but he stated, "what will It cost the city of South A mboy ?" He finished by saying that the decision handed to the council -made the council bound by law. Councilman Hackett stated that part of Councilman Stanton's re marks were right; that he did not pay for the cost of the case himeelf, but went around to the taxpayers and collected their money to fight the case In their behalf. He also de clared that the expenses of the city should not have been half as high as they were; In fact, the whole council did not have to go to Jersey City to explain the matter to the court there. He also stated that the city had two lawyers in the case, and he only had one lawyer on his side. He stated that there would have been mucli more expense attached to this retail ing wall had not he interfered when ho had, as It was the intention of the contractor to put steps and driveways and other things in connection with ♦ Vila «.nil Councilman Stanton again took tlu floor and stated that he went to Jer sey City to tell what he knew of the action of the council in the case, and he has never put in a bill for his ex penses when doing something of his own froe will, and was never known to have received Ave cents in com pensation. He stated that he gave his testimony In the case, and is satisfied that the action was in accordance with the law. He declared that the councilman with whom he was argu ing, was right when he stated that he went about to the taxpayers and collected money to defend the taxpay ers' rights In the case. "True enough they are taxpayers," he said, "bui they are taxpayers who have also ar ax to grind, and had they won the case, they would have probably gain ed from benefit In the future by It.' He statert that It was not fair and nol right for the taxpayers to get togethei with the councilman and try to casi reflection on them and their actions Council-at-Large Gordon statee that he had used his Influence to vin dicate the street committee to some act of Justice, as the damage done bj making the grade was severe. He sait he did not attend the courts In Jer sey City and Trenton, and the cas( was only an act of Justice and law tc those people, whose property tiae been Jeopardized by the making ol the new grade. City Solicitor Coakley stated that h< knew that Councilman Hackett knew that he was wrong when he said thai the city did not have the right evi dence in the case, as the papers were all presented to the attorney repre senting Mr. Hackett, for the purpose of examining them and entering π protest, but when they were to meel in the court at Perth Amboy foi this purpose, Councilman Hacketl was not present to enter his protests so the solicitor stated that Mr. Hack edd was bound by his own negligence to see that the evidence In the matter was all correct. In reference to th« city having two lawyers in the case, he stated that the reason for that was that the attorneys representing the city were not counsellors at 1 w, ane consequently were not permitted t< argue a case In the supreme court ol New Jersey. And he stated that as far as the matter of lawyers was con cerned, It would make no difference to the city, whether that had one lawyer or ten, as It would not cost the cltv an extra penny for their expenses Councilman Rue asked the city en gineer for some Information In re gard to the wall, whether or not there were steps and driveways to be placée in the wall. The city engineer stated that the only extra thing they had te do, was to build small wing walls lr order to prevent the large wall from coming down. Councilman Hackett wanted to know If Lawyer Burton was giving the nlty his services free of charge, or not and wanted to know who was paying him. He stated that tJit, whole thing was summed up in that It was all con cocted outside of the council chamber. Solicitor Coakley stated that he would pay the lawyers out of his ex penses. A motion by Councilman Parlsen was offered to the effect that the deci sion be received and filed. The vote was unanimous. Other Resolutions Passed. Counmilman Gordon made a mo- 1 tion that the bids for the bonis of the new school building be opened, j The city clerk informed them that1! they were in receipt of only one bid, which was from the First National bank, for the full amount of the bonds, $85,000, with check of $17,000 which was two per cent of. the amount of the cost of the bonds. Cpon motion of Councilman Parlsen, it was referred to the finance commit tee. Resolutions on the death of Police man Thomas Monahan were adopted, a coipy of which will be engraved and sent to the deceased man's family. j Resolution introduced by Council-' man Parlsen, In regard to the pur- ' chasing of a site for the fire house In the Mechanicsville section of the city. · Whereas the Are committee had ec-1 cured a site, the city clerk was In structed to draw warrant In favor of George A. Thomas for the amount of1 $250. Upon motion of councilman. Rue the resolution was adopted and} passed the entire vote of the council, j Reeolutton was adopted In regard to the case of the wall being dismissed by the supreme court, all persons hav ing any claims which have been accru-1 ed by the building of the said wall, ι should make and present all the claims in legal form, and have same before the council, on the night of December t 31. The city clerk was instructed to j have a notice to this effect published, I in the newspapers. A recess of ten minutes was taken by i the council, by motion of Councilman Parlsen. Upon recovering, a résolu-1 I tion offered by Councilman Gordon to· the effect that as the First National Bank were the only bidders for the school bonds, they be offered to the I one and only bidder at par value, $85,000. Resolution was adopted by, motion of Councilman Parlsen. When the president of the council called for! remarks Councilman Hackett, stated| that he thought that they should be re-advertlsed, us it seemed hard to let ι the first bidder have the bonds at parj value, with about $52,500 worth of, notes drawing Interest at five per cent, at the First National Bank, for city I accounts. Councilman Gordon stated that he agreed with Mr. Hackett, but he stat-! ed that he did not deem re-advertising the bids again, on account of the high! price of this kind of work, and that he| seeimed to thing also that it seemed unfair to let the bonds be Bold at par value. The motion -was carried, with Coun cilman Hackett voting "no." There were present at last nlght'i meeting Mayor Ke>rr, Councilman Gor-| don, Hackett, Parisien, Rue and Stan ton.

But these were the Joys of antici pation, the Jews having been pre pared for this official declaration by a semi-official statement issued by Gen eral Bir Archibald Murray in March, Just before his army reached Gaza. "What shall we do with Palestine, which is now about to be stripped from the Turkish yoke?" he Inquired, ind answering his own question, he says : "Beyond doubt we will revive the Jewish Palestine of ancient days, and give to the Jervs the possibility of realizing their ancient hope. Not all Jews will return to Palestine, but large numbers will. The new Jewish state, under either English or French protection, will become the spiritual and cultural centcr of all Jewry. The Jews will at last have their own home land and their own nationality. Hopes which have sustained them through the centuries will now be realized." Statesmen of Italy, France and Russia have politically pledged their countries to tie support of this plan. Tlie Pope recently received a Zionist emissary wilt» explained tlie Jewish Intentions. After lis Uning intently, liis liolinese ejac ulated: "We will be good neigh bors—we will he good neighbors." Whether by coincidence or design, It is noteworthy that the American council In London, extending Its greetings to the Zionist leaders on the official declaration In their favor by the Britsh government, used the Identical phrase that fell from the lips of the Pope. Germany, too, Indicated Its willing ness to permit a Jewish state in Pal estine, naturally under Its over-lord ship. But since England's declara tion, there has been a revulsion of feeling in Teutonic circles. Since the fall of Jerusalem before the overwhelming legions of Rome, and the Jewish dispersion from Pales tine, the liturgy of that people has been burdened with prayers for the restoration. Through the centuries there have been various attempts to re-eetabllsh the Jewish people on their ancient land, but nothing of a serious character Is recorded prior to I860, when the "Alliance Isreallte Universelle" of Parts began operating in Palestine. The first thing done by the alliance was to establish an agri cultural 6chool, for which the Turk ish government donated 625 acres o: land near Jaffa. A school was open ed in 1870 under the name of "Mik vah Israel." In 1878 lAurenee Oliphant, an English explorer, visited Palestine and became an advocate of Jewish re settlement of the country. But not until the 80's, when the first Jewish massacres occurred In Russia, was the foundation laid for the present Jewish colonization. There were or ganizeo, tnrôûgnôut ituseia, *tbuu" | societies, composed of intelligent Jew ish young men, who determined to | become pioneers of Palestine coloni- ι zation. T'nder their auspices a colony "Rlshon J-.C Zion" (first for Zion) was established on the road between Jaffa, and Jerusalem. They found a land atrophied, barren, waterless, exposed to the pitiless glare of the tropical sun, rotting into morass and swamp, and were almost entirely sur rounded by savage nomads. We ax· thrilled with the story of the Pilgrim Fathers who fought their way to success from the precarlou foothold in bleak Plymouth. Λ11 the valor, the unquenchable courage of the Pilgrim Fathers was displayed by these Jewish young men from the universities of Russia. In 32 years, from 1882-1914, thie handful of pio neers grew to some 15,000 Jewish farmers In Palestine, strongly organ ized in 4 0 villages. Meanwhile, the Dreyfus scandal had occurred in France, and Dr. Theodore Harzl, a Viennese Journal ist, who reported the last trial of the ! historic scapegoat, published a bro | chure entitled "A Jewish State," in which he summoned the Jews of the ; world to revive their nationality and j claim at the hands of the powers "a ! publicly recognized, legally secured I homeland In Palestine." Inspired by this book, a call was issued for a congress, which was held in Ba^le, j Switzerland, In IS97, and the Zionist organization, which today has branches throughout the world, was organized. The Zionist organization j undertook firstly, political negotia i tlons for recognition of the Jewish j nationality and its claims on Pales tine; and secondly, the fostering of a I national colonization in the Holy ι Land. j In the last few years before the war there arose a number of larce plantation societies ( "Achuzoth" >, which were founded In Russia, the United States, England and Rumania. Several workmen's settlements j have been founded during the last I few years, mostly with the help of I the Jewish national fund, in the neighborhood of the large colonies. ! At the same time the former colonie" ' have been considerably enlarged by j the purchase of land In their neigh j borhood. A brisk Influx of brave young la I borers on the one hand, and of enter ! prising capitalists on the other, was i particularly noticeable in Palestine ί during the last few years before the ! war. The Jewish population of Palestine j now bears a higher proportion to the j total number of inhabitants of the I country than does the Jewish popula : tion in any other country of the 1 world. The old Jewish settlers are those j whose religious sentiment drew them J to Palestine, in most cases after they 'have passed the prime of life, to spend their remaining years In pray jer and study on holy grounds. For the most part they have been from the outset, or have become in th^ ! course of time, dependent on charity, ι This evil has extended to their chil I dren, and their children's children. Very different are the settlers of the new type who went there u^der the impulse of Jewish nationalism. They sought a foothold first of all outside the towns, in the plains of Judaea and Galilee. As their agricul tural colonies grew and their produc I tivity increased, they brought busi ness to the seaport town of Jaffa and ' Haifa, and side by side with the de velopment of the colonies t>ere pro ceeded a rapid Jewish immigration • into those towns. Settlers of the new ■s type began to come also to Jerusalem, where, as In the other towns, they formed modern suburbs outside the olr) and over-crowded city. In town and country alike the new se tter· have brought with them European energy and ideals of progress. The Arabs have not unnaturally felt soiij· jealousy of the Jewish col onics, which comparr- bo favorably with their own primitive villages, but they realize thfit economically the coming of the Jewish settlers ha* been greatly to thoir advantage, and they have· accepted it as a matter of course that the Jewish colonists shall iiûike their own local laws and regu lations, hh they build their own homes. Thus the Jewish colonies in Palestine have enjoyed a measure of independence and self-government which will be impossible in a more highly developed and closely control led country. They have had to work out for themselves their own political and municipal problems. Mr. Iierstetn will tell tomorrow alKmt the first iii tins war, wliich was fougiit, not lu Belgium, but in Palestine.
