statement through tho Arhorlcnn Jew-j

was on this. Interview, the statement
says, that Jacob II. Sohlff based his
charges against Ambassador Hocklull,
and John Hays Hammond during a
recent speech on the passport question.
Mr. Hernstein suya.
"About u weclt ago Mr. Jacob H.
Schiff made a statement to tho effect
that while President Taft waH promln
tng delegation after delegation that]
everything would be done by the De?
partment of Stale to settle the passport
question. Ambassador itockiiill had de?
clared that he considered Ihf. matter
of no great Importance.
Itainnioad \rter Concessions.
"Mr. Sc h i ft alsu stated that Mr. J.oiw.
Hays Hammond went to Itussia for the
purpose of securing certain concessions
and commercial contracts in Russia,
and that VVllcukln, a Russian financial
agent, told Mr. Schiff that Mr. Ham?
mond was chosen as the head of the
uyndlca'te bocauo.; he was a friend ot
the President.
"Mr. Hammond was violent, though
not convincing. In his reply, and to
prove his case he published c. cable?
gram from the Hussion agent, Wlljn
kln, and a letter ho (Hummond) him?
self hud sent to Wllcnktn last April.
"The charge that Mr. Hammond mb

mains unanswered by Mr. Hammond.
"Dast spring, when l was In SL
Petersburg, I had several lengthy con?
versations with Ambassador Kockhill,
in which he spoke to inn frankly about
the passport question, and In which nc
showed not only that ho did not tnke
the American view of the question, but
belittled it as of no consequence Mr. |
Itockhlll knew that 1 was etudylng
conditions In Ituasla, that I was Inter
eated In the passport question, and that
( wanted to tind out what wa; actually
being dono In the matter. Mr. Uockhill
knew that 1 hud discussed the passport
question with soms of the foremost men
In Russia, such as Count Witte, the for?
mer Prime Minister of Russia; Profos
?or Maxime Kovalcvnky, member of the I
Council of tho Empire; Professor Mllu
koff, member of the Duma; the present
Prime Minister Kokovteoff and others.
State Ilepnrtment Version.
"That was last May. I did not pub?
lish my Interviews with Mr. Rockhlll,
ihuugh I wrote them out Immediately
after I had mot him. I did not publish
them, und would not have published
them If the State Department had not
given out tho following semi-official
statement November 18:
" "One of the Assistant Secretaries of
the Stato Department said to-day that
for years this government has been
mnking every effort to better the con?
dition of the Jews In Itussia: also to
have Russia rocognlie the passports of
American Jews, ThlB official said that
President Taft had gone further than',
any other Executive.
"'He declared that the government
of Russia?the Czar and his advisers?
had recommended to the Duma the ab?
rogation of tho treaty with the United
States, promulgated and accepted in
;332. but that that body refused to ac?
cept thla recommendation. The Rus?
sian Duma has steadily refused, this
olliclal said, to grant any Jewish re?
forms in Russia which the Czar's offi?
cial family recommended.
"'President Taft and Secretary Knox
instructed Ambassador Rookhlll and
Ambassador Guild to do their utmost
to chango Russia's attitude toward
American Jews, according to the White
House.
"'At the State Department tt was
said that Jacob H. Schiff had been

Kockhill said to me on the passport
question.
"During our first conversation. .May
i3. 1911, at the American embassy in
St. Petersburg, he said:
"'The passport question 13 not an
American question. Too much fuss Is
made about the passport question.
To oe frank. It is bad policy to force
this passport question on Russia. Inj
time. Russia will settW It herself. |
" "Parsons and Rennet were wrong
when they said that Russia needs us
more than we need Russia. Parsons
said that our commercial Interests
here are Insignificant. He Is mistaken.
We need Russia more than she needs
us. We, who are so clumsily strug?
gling for new markets everywhere,
need Russia. We have already great
interests Involved here, and still
greater to come.
" 'Wo have the American HarveEtcr
Company, the.Slngbr Sewing Machine
Company, the Equitable Life Insurance
Company and other American con?
cerns, and now many new enterprises
?wo nro Interested in Improving the .
cotton Heids hero* and In building grain j
elevators. Wc have the aame Interests
as Russia has In Japan.
"'Russia Is favorably Inclined toward
American capital and enterprises also,
for the reason that her credit Is al?
most exhausted with Franco?that Is.
not exactly exhausted, but Russia docaj
noj want to tie herself to the Euro-i
pean powers. She has crodlt and ln-|
terests In England and In Germany.'
but for the future the Interests of
Rus6la are destined to bo with the.
United States.
Need mi??i? Politically.
"'Politically we need Russia, for our j
Interests on the Pacific are the same ap
those of Russin. The Panama Canal
will make It necessary for us to be In
closer relations with Russia, with SI- |
beria. So, you see. we cannot forct i
the pasBport question. That will be;
settled In time by Russia herself.' I
" 'Did you meet Mr. Hammond when
?he was In St. Petersburg?' I asked.
"'Oh. yes," replied Mr. Rockhill. 'My
friend Mr. Hammond has now two
parties working here on the project
of Irrigating tho transcasplnn. district
for the purpose of cultivating cotton
there; also n project of building grain
elevators. When these projects, in
which he and the government are In?
terested, go through It will mean ?1
ISOO.000.000 deal for American Inter?
ests. We need Ruscla oIbo politically.
" 'Personally.' added Mr. RockhlU, T
can't understand why tho American
Jews are so keen' on the passport
question. It Is not an Important ques?
tion. Wa need Russia. Therefore It,
would not be wise to press the mat-'
ter Just now.'"
CAMP OPERATED
AT SMALL COST
Outlay Less Than One Dollar
Per Day for Tuberculous
Patients.
A meeting of the board of directors
of the Tuberculosis Camp Society waB
held yesterday afternoon in the ofllce
of Fred W. Scott, treasurer. The re?
port of the treasurer showed that for
the first ten months of the current
year the cost of maintenance had been
between S5 cents and $1 per day per
patient, which is regarded as a re?
markable showing for the first year
of the institution. One additional'
building Is now being erected, and the
executive cojnmlttee was Instructed to
secure- plans and make recommenda?
tions as to whether It was practicable
to finance the erection of a sccood pa?
vilion, since the camp is not ablo to
accommodate all those who should be
there.
Tho officers expressed the belief that
outside of the outlay for new buildings i
the board would Just about come out;
even financially on tho first year of op- j
eratlon. C. C. Pinekney reported for a|
special committee on new constitution,!
and the board recommended to the an- I
liual meeting, which will be held Inj
January, the adoption of the revised
constitution, which changes the method
of selecting directors and in other
ways alters tho plan of management of
the camp.
Shot for IJnknovrn Cause.
Henry Hilton (colored), of 307 Col- j
lege Street, wus shot last night, It Is
alleged by Frank Gray and seriously
wounded. He was attended by Dr.
Crowgey, and was taken to the City
Hospital. The bullet entered the body
under the right arm. Dr. Crowgey
did not know what were the causes of
the shooting. When ho arrived tho
victim wns in dire danger, and it was
immediately necessary to tako him to
a hospital. Hilton was unable at the
time to explain tho cauco of tho
shooting.
Market Closed Thanksgiving.
The Second Market will bo elosed all
day Thanksgiving to permit the men
connected with It to celebrate the holi?
day. In order to accommodate holiday
purchasers, however, the market will
remain open all day Wednesday, ob?
serving the regular Saturday hours.

Paul Baker (colored) was arrested
last night, on suspicion of having
stolen a pair of trousers and a coat
from Henry . James.

rested on suspicion of operating a
policy shop. "{ :'.;>/

EXHIBIT PLANS
AGAIN DISCUSSED
Big Building May Be Needed to
Display Richmond Made
Goods.
The hoard of directors of the pro?
jected manufacturers' exhibit, met In
the Chamber of Commerce last night
to take up further discussion of plans
for the enterprise. Practically a full
attendance of the board was present,
and was presided over by the chair?
man. F. W. Brown. Tho question of
a location was again taken up and
referred to th,p committee which has 11
In charge.
tJV. number of sites are available;
(several new ones being ofteted nt last
night's meeting, but the committee is
proceeding slowly In order to make no
rnlstako In the selection. It' was stat?
ed that one of the reasons that the
committee on location Is proceeding
with caution. Is the fact that although
more than 100 manufacturers have
either signed up, or ugrced to co-op?
erate, a lurge number has not yet en?
tered the fold.
To contract for a site and building
large enough to provide 10.000 or 16,
000 feet of floor space, and then to
llnd later that a large number of new
entries among the manufacturers
make necessary a building of twice
or three times these dimension.*], would
be an expensive mistake. It was
strongly urged at last night's meeting
that those manufacturers who havo
not already allied themselves with the
progressives, do so at onco, and make
the work of the committee on build?
ing and location that much simpler.
Two new applications for reserva?
tions were read nt the meeting, and
Charles J. Shuman was elected to tho
directorate, completing its required
membership of fifteen. Another meet?
ing of the directors will be called by
the chairman to consider the report of
the committee on location.

SMALL FORTUNE
Sussex County Boy Cleans Up
Hundreds of Dollars on
Corn Crop.
Upon a total Investment of $51, which
includes his own labor and rent on
an acre of his father's land, John A.
Johnston, Jr., tho thlrtocn-your-old
Sussex county boy, who raised tho best
acre of oorn In the State this year,
will rcullzo many hundreds of dollars.
He puts In his corn at 90 cents a
bushel, which lu too low. But letting
it go at that, ho will get $147.60 for
the 164 bushels. This makes a clean
profit of $86.GU. In addition, he got tho
$100 prize at the Soulhuide Fair for
tho beat ucre of corn; a $50 prlzo at
the Emporiu Fair, and a $16 prizo at
tho Sussex County School Fair. This
makes $216 cush in prizes
On December 11 he will Join tho
prize winning boys frum the other
States in a trip to Wutthiugton, with
all expenses paid by the Bureau of
Blunt Industry. The kids will be
shown everything in town.
Then young Jonnston gets a scholar?
ship at the special farmers' course at
the Virginia Polytechnic Institute in
January and February, taking up any
i practical subject he pleusoa, with all
oxpenses paid. He will probably go.

ucld, 400 pounds of bone meal, 2uu
pounds of muriate, of potash and 200'
pounds of nitrate of soda. The ground
old not get all this at once, but by
