"Rosh Ashona," the Jewish New Year, commenced at 6 o'clock last even ing, and it will be generally observed today by those of the orthodox faith. At Progress hall last evening there was a good-sized congregation, who listened to Mr. Leon 'Strauss' lecture on "The Jew." Among the audience were many people belonging to other churches in the city. The proceedings closed with a few remarks by the pres ident. Mr. Straus said: "Today, my friends, marks in the history of the people of Israel another year passed in the revolution of the wheel of time and today in every country under God's mighty sky the chosen of God, as lie Himself has called them, gather together in rooms or temples dedicated to His holy name to offer up their humble prayer and thanksgiving for all the blessings of love and plenty He has in His all powerful and all-embracing wisdom showered upon them; nor can the Jew of today offer prayer enough to Him, as we of today look back into the cen turies that have passed and read in the evolution of time the strange fate of the Jew a fate that is pushing this chosen one forward to a full accom plishment of God's mighty design, which will see its end when man lives in peace with his fellow-man; when the lion and lamb shall lie side by side, an end intended by God which can only be perfected by those He has chosen, only by the Jew. What a fate it is! What he has suffered- in his endless wandering to finish the work his Father bade him do, and can we, looking into the past and present, doubt for an instant that he is the only one who, in no far distant day, will finish his Master's work. "So strange is and has been the fate of the Jew; he has ever been the simultaneously despised and dreaded and distinguished of mankind; ever at one and the same time a low. hated peddler and a high, courted Lord Bea- consfield; ever at one and the same ime the scum and sage; ever at one and the same time despised for his meanness, dreaded for his sagacity, deified for his moral and spiritual grandeur. Name the cruelty, name the ignominy which the Jew has not suf- ered and endured; name me a coun try in which he has lived in peace without having ignorance point the fin ger of scorn at him! Why? Because he is a Jew. Where he has been ever has it been said to him: 'The hand of man shall be against thee and thy hand shall be powerless to resist our blows: where others dwell thou shall't not dwell; where others walk, thou shalt not walk; our laws, our occupations, dress, speech and all that make life worth the living shall not be yours; thou shalt be compelled to reside in the filthiest quarters of our cities, there to be exposed to insult and pil- age; thou shalt be compelled to pur sue degraded callings and then be des pised for not entering higher voca tions. And what was his crime that brought so cruel a punishment upon him? - What was his guilt? WThat his transgressions? He is guilty of being a Jew: he is guilty of the crime of giving the world a God before ' whom half humanity bends its knee today; he is guilty of the crime of having given to the world a Bible, a Sabbath, the Decalogue, the Golden Rule, of having been the first to proclaim the Fatherhood of God and Brotherhood of Man, the first to enjoin peace and good on earth. He is guilty of the crime of having given the world prophets, bards and law-givers, to whom the whole civilized world does homage. He is guilty of the crime of furnishing the greatest number of stars to the galax ies of the world's greatest lights. He is guilty ot tne crime ot Deing anion the most peaceful, law-abiding, indus trious, temperate, loyal and patriotic of men that live in any land. The prison scarcely knows him; the gal lows-sneak of him as a stranger; the divorce courts know him not; the in ebnate homes never saw him; no almshouse need feed or care for him He is the noblest father, husband. brother and friend; but yet he is called in accents of contempt and sneer, 'A Jew!' The public schools rank him the most gifted; the universi- ties among the most learned; the pro fessions among the most capable; the arts "among the most skillful; the sciences among the most advanced. Name the leaders of parliaments and peoples, the advance guards of thought and progress, the heroes and pets and idols of the people, and you must name an overwhelming proportion of God's chosen people the Jews; you must name the Rabbi of Nazareth and his precepts, in whose name so many Jews have gone down to a martyr's death, because ignorance and priestcraft could not and would not interpret aright his Jewish teaching; you must name the Spinozas, the Mendelssohns, the Dis raelis and the Laskers, the Richardos and the Lassalles, the Heines, the Mey erbeers and the Haberj-s, the Rathels and the Bernhardts, the Sir Moses Montefiores, and the Zangwills. He is further guilty of being clannish, for which centuries, of compulsory exclu sive accusations only with his own down-trodden people on vile ghetto, built by ignorance and hate, have ob scured his day. He is greedy and grasping; he monopolized the most profitable trades, for which not he is to blame, but the centuries of cruel ex clusion from plying the higher and grander vocations of men, and the knowledge that by means of money he could successfully live and fight the nations that, in ignorance of his sub lime mission, strove to stamp him from the earth and bury his mighty religion amid the chaos of the past. "Such is the story of the martyrdom of the Jew and such the guilt that brought it on him. In reading the black history of the past you marvel at it, and you may well do so; but far more the marvel, he has survived it. But only one endowed as he was, and still is, only one hardened and steeled as he was for his world's mission in the school of trial and agony as he was could have outlived it. Only a Jew destined to live and live until the God's purpose, his mission, is fulfilled, could have passed through such a furnace- fire of misery from century to century and come forth from the heat and Uame 'with not a downy feather singed by the flame of percussion.' "And if he has survived these cen turies of all pain it must be because Providence intended him to live; it must be as the Bible teaches us, there is a mighty task to be done for our God, which only a Jew can do, which only a Jew shall do; no other expla nation of his marvelous endurance and escape from all that has been done to ruin and degrade him and his religion is possible. This, he that drew the plans of civilization, laid its founda tion, started its upward climb, and this mason working under the leadership of God Himself must finish the work he has begun. He that first conceived the great truth one God over all, one brotherhood of all, peace among all that great truth he must make su preme with all, and for that God has spared him; for that he has been a wanderer in every land; for that he has withstood all; for that he must, he shall, he cheerfully and happily wan ders until the people of the Messiah shall become the Messiah of the people, until the despised of men shall becmie. as they are fast doing, the distin guished among all nations. "What a strange story! What strange irony of fate is the story of the Wan dering Jew. The story invented by priestcraft for the disgrace of the Jew really proves, upon closer scrutiny, the Jews' greatest glory. I do not mean his rejection or ill-treatment of the martyr of Galilee; I mean the promise of immortality that legend contains Thou shalt live forever.' But how of today? He is breaking away from the low callings once enforced upon him by cruel laws, and today devoting himself to the grander pursuits; he is exchanging the store for the school and the bourse for the university. He has permitted others to wrest from him the honor of being the greatest of bankers and merchants; but none shall ever again take from him what he is today first in the learned professions: poet, lawyer, painter, actor, statesman, doctor, musician. He is all these, and the thousands of years of oppression have left no mark upon his mighty spirit. He has come forth from the depth where cruelty and hatred placed him, straight to the front, and he stands there, saying to all the world, in voice as clear and sweet as a bird's song: 'Behold me; give me a place among the noble of earth; I have earned it; I, too, have the right to be exalted, for, as we have been brought so low in our day of humiliation, we shall be exalted so high in our day of triumph.' "The phrases, 'Rich. as a Jew,' 'Mean as a Jew,' are changing to 'Wise as a Jew,' 'Good as a Jew,' and before his work will be done the phrase will have changed to 'Divine as a Jew.' The age of persecution has passed; the age of equality is here. The snow of sorrowT is changing to the sunshine of joy. In the horizon of his being a new, bright day is dawning for him, and when, at length, God calls him home, he will find peace from his wanderings in the promised land, first having done on earth his Father's work, which could only be done by 'A Jew.' " At S:30 this morning there will be religious services at Progress hall, and at 10 o'clock prayer for the Govern ment, and English reading, inter spersed with Hebrew prayer. RED TAPE CIRCUMVENTED. The Post Office has an idiotic rule which precludes the public from buyinj postage stamps at offices which are restricted to telegraphic business. The rule was ingeniously circumvented the other day by a gentleman who had written a letter in train and went to a telegraph office at a station en route for the purpose of obtaining stamps. The clerk in charge having declined to sell them, the traveller' asked for a telegraph form, and wrote the follow ing message: Postmaster-General, London, Your clerk says "I cannot purchase two stamps at this office, Rats." Claiming the right to affix the stamps himself, in accordance with another Post Office rule, he took the stamps which the clerk handed over, put them in his pocket, tore up the tele graph form, and departed in triumph. A man 'who could thus make red tape look ridiculous deserves to be regarded as a public benefactor. Truth. Only the highest grade of RED RUB BER is used in the Stamps made by the HAWAIIAN GAZETTE CO.
