Association Makes 400 Calls in
Four Months and Needs
Funds for Work.
Hii Special Correspondent.
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.

îouncilmen Hackett and Stan
ton Have It Hot and Heavy
at Council Meeting.
il/ Speriat 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. City rierk Mack, Cltv Solicitor I

.Toy was brought to the hearts of
nil'ion" of Jews throughout the j
world last Novem
ber 3, when Ar- ι
tliur Balfour, Brit- i
ish foreign minis
ter, wrote to Sir j
Lionel Rothschild,
vice president of
the Zionist organi
zation of England,
that the British
government view
ed with favor the
establishment 1 η
Palestine of a na
tional home for
the Jew».
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.
