APPROPRIATE CELEbRATION OF CHANUKA FESTIVAL Exercises by the Children of the Temple Michva Israel. The Chanuka Festival was celebrat ed yesterday afternoon by the Sunday school of the Temple Mickva Israel at the Sheftall Memorial Hall on Dray ton street. The programme, although rendered by the small children of the Sunday school. was interesting from start to finish, and much credit is due Rev. George Solomon for the success of the entertainment. All of the songs and recitations were well rendered. The exercises opened with a selec tion by the orchestra, composed of boys, and was followed by an address by Master Sylvan Byck. Master Byck addressed the audience in a manly manner and told of Chanuka. "My friends, we have come here to-day, all happy and expecting to be made hap pier in celebrating our Chanuka Festi val,'' he said. "Nearly all of us have comfortable homes, and on the Sabbath, if a stranger should come, we would be proud to take him to our synagogue, or show him our chapel, knowing that both are as nice as any place in the city. As we see the bright light of the Chanuka candles, and sing the old time Chanuka song, we feel proud of our religion and are glad that we are Jews. But while we are so happy, my friends, let us remember that it was not always so. "In far-off Russia to-day there are thousands and thousands of Jewish children who are not so happy. Cha nuka does not bring happiness to them. Their homes are poor and bare; their synagogues are small and un attractive, because in that country peo ple hate and despise the Jew and make things very hard for him. Up to a hundred years ago it was the same all over the world, except in blessed America. But bad as this was, it was not as bad as the troubles the Jews had to undergo many years ago. "A long, long time ago, the Jew's had a country and a government of their own. They lived in Palestine, and the capital of their country was the city of Jerusalem. About 1,750 years back, there was a powerful coun try called Syria, and its kings cap tured Jerusalem and tried to make all the people give up their religion. Most of the people were frightened by the great armies of the Syrian soldiers, and did not have the courage to stand up for their rights. But all at once an old man, named Mattathias, came forth and refused to surrender. By force of his example the people gath- SALVATION ARMY READY TO FEED THE POOR. Capt. Barriinau Mnklna Plans for Usual Christmas Feast. Capt. J. M. Barriman, the new com mander of the Salvation Army post stationed in this city, will soon begin his preparations for the annual feast to be given the poor on Christmas. For a number of years it has been the custom of the Salvation Army to give a Christmas dinner to as many poor and needy as they are able to provide for. Capt. Barriman says, if possible, he wishes to provide for at least 500 this year. This will be a gigantic task, as the Salvationists have to depend entirely on the donations they receive from the merchants of the city. Capt. Bar riman was In charge of the Birming ham post last year, where over 1,000 people were provided for, and he has no fear of not being able to arrange to look after 500 in this city. To-morrow he will place collection baskets on all of the principal street corners, and expects to realize a sub stantial sum In this manner. About the middle of this week he will enter upon a campaign of canvassing that will cover every home and business house in the city. He will not only ask for money with which to defray some of the expenses, but will gladly receive promises of donations of any description. A few days before Christmas Capt. Barriman will ascertain the most needy families in the city and to these he will give a ticket, which when pre sented at the hall on the Saturday before Christmas, will entitle the hold er to a basket. This basket will con tain all that is most necessary to make a good and bountiful dinner. It is expended he will provide for at least 250 In this manner. At the hall on West Broad street on Monday, Dec. 26, a regular Christmas feast <wHl be served from 11 o'clock in the morning until 2:30 in the aft ernoon. At this feast all will attend who did not receive baskets, and at least 250 are expected to dine. SANG ChTnESE*SONGS TO THE SUNDAY-SCHOOL. Bev. W. D. Darke Supplied I'ulplt for Krv. O. B. I he.ter Yesterday. The services at Wesley Monumental Church yesterday were conducted by Rev. W. D. Burke, a missionary from China. He preached both morning and night and in the course of his sermon related many interesting facts con cerning Chinese customs and told of the difficulties that the missionaries experience in the land of Confucius. Rev. Mr. Burke also addressed the children of the Sunday-school in the afternoon and delighted them by the rendition of several Chinese songs. When seen by a Morning News re porter and asked for some impressions of the Russo-Japanese War, Rev. Mr. Burke said: "I have really nothing that I can tell you. as I know nothing about the war. I was stationed at Shanghai, about 800 miles from the scene of ac tive operations of the armies, and we know little there about the battles, save what comes to u* In the news psper dispatches. Interest, of course. Is high there and many rumors are constantly coming Into the port. 1 left Shanghai early In August and do not know how affairs are progressing there now.” Rev. Mr. Burke will leave this morn ing for the sessions of the Methodist conference now being held In Mcßae. He has not yet announced where he will go Immediately after the confer ence adjourns, nor where he will spend the lime before he returns to his foreign field of labor.

This man had five sons, and after his death they kept up me fight, until after five or six years they drove out the Syrians. “Our religion teaches us it is wrong to go to war and wound and kill our 'eliowmen, but Judah Maccabeas also shows us that when wrongly attackel we know how to fight for our rights. You ail know', or should know, th Jewish people had a splendid temple in Jerusalem. The Syrians had taken this and used it for all kinds of wrong purposes. When Judah won his first victory he had the temple clean ed out well. The story tells us that he found a little bottle of oil somewhere hidden away, and with this he ignited the lights before the altar and there was enough oil to keep the lights burning for a week. In memory of this each year at Chanuka we light our candles. One extra each night for eight days. "So let us all be happy to-day. Let us be happy for the brightness we en joy, and let us be happy because these candles may be a light for us to show how to make others happy. Each of us little boys and girls are a temple. It is holy and dedicated to God. if our thoughts are good and pure. It is un clean and unfit for service if our thoughts are wdeked. On this Chanuka then, let us each purify our hearts; let us dedicate ourselves to all that is noble and true, then each of us may shine as a beautiful Chanuka light and our young lives be a,sweet hymn of glory to God." After Master Byck’s address. “Teas ing” was sung by little Mildred Guck enheimer and was followed by the rec itation, "Drifted Out to Sea” by Mary Hirsch. Inspired by the deeds of Judah Maccabeas Master Arthur Marks en deavored to show the hight of his am bition by reciting “A Little Soldier.” He was encored and returned to tell the audience of his experience while "Under the Buggy Seat,” and warned all little boys not to endeavor to learn the mysteries of their sister's courting while ocupying the unenviable position he had recourse to. To illustrate the resurrection of the temple, ten little girls dressed in white grouped themselves around a cross decorated in yellow. The cross had five arms and on both ends of each arm was a receptacle for holding a candle. The little ones in turn, re cited an appropriate verse and then placed a candle on the cross. The last lighted her candle and then ig nited the others; then holding hands they sang the Chanuka hymn. The burning candles casting their bright light over the group at the cross, made a pretty picture. While the orchestra was playing the last selection on the programme a box of candy was presented to each member of the Sunday-school. ZIONISM AN EXPRESSION OF NATIONAL FEELING. Continued from Eighth Page. George Tunkle, of Augusta, who deliv ered a short address and introduced Mr. De Haas. Mr. Tunkle, who came to Savannah to aid in the organiza tion of the Zionist society here, refer red to his former visit. On that oc casion, he said, his audience had urged him to go on. when he was ready to stop speaking. Last night, he said he was afraid they would call to him to stop, so anxious were they to hear Mr. De Haas. He oaid a compliment to the Zion ists of Savannah, and referred to this city as the center of Zionism in the South. He looked forward to the day, he said, when Savannah would invite the Congress of Zionists to meet here. He assured his audience that if the Congress ever met here, he "would come all the way from Augusta to attend." Mr. Tunkle said he not on ly desired to introduce the speaker to the audience, but he wished to Intro duce the audience to the speaker. In beginning his lecture, Mr. De Haas extended, "greetings to the brothers and sisters of Israel.” The greetings of the East to the South. He said he had come to speak of the Zionist movement, a movement, a movement that had so often been com mented \ipon and criticised by those who knew nothing about It. Some people have an idea, he said, that Zionism consists of a man travel ing around the country telling the Jews to pack up and move back to Jerusalem. He said such was not the case and he was not going to tell a single Jew in Savannah to go to Pales tine. The lecture was enthusiastically re ceived. At Its conclusion. Rev. I. Wolfson, sang another song and the meeting adjourhed. The Zion Guard, composed of boys sixteen years of age or under, that is just being organized here, attended the meeting.

DECEMBER 5. 1904 AT THE THEATER Of the several especially noteworthy scenes pictured in "Sherlock Holmes,” William Gillette’s famous play, found ed on an unpublished story by Sir A. Conan Doyle, none are perhaps more apt to awaken suggestions of crime than the Stepney gas chamber; a large, grimy room on the upper floor of an ancient rickety building, about as uncanny and gruesome a spot as one would care to conjure up, and yet it is in this very scene where some of the most startling electric effects util ized throughout the play, are intro- St EXE FROM “SHERLOCK HOLMES.” duced.

They were anx ious to find out all this about a young lawyer from Boston named Quincy Adams Sawyer, who had gone to live at a small Massachusetts village for a year or so. Avery successful book, which has its famous title from this young man's name, was written around Mr. Saw yer’s doings in the country and around the village gossips who "wondered” all these things about him, and now the book in play form is to be elab orately produced here on Saturday, matinee and night.
