Vol. VII. The Mysterious Nilus and the Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion ARTIC LE IN LA TRIIU'XE .lI’IVE CONTAINS FIRST DEFINITE INFOR MATION AIiOFT THE QI'ACK AND CHARLATAN, NILE'S, WHO DIS SEMINATED ANTI-JEWISH HOAX KNOWN AS PROTOCOLS IN RUSSIA. * Tin* first authentic information con cerning tin* mysterious Mins who is responsible for the* so-cubed Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion, wliieh have been used* as tlie basis for anti-Jew ish propaganda in Europe ami the Cnited States, is Riven in an article in La Tribune Juivc, the or Ran of the Russiun Jews r<»sident in Paris a copy of which lias just been received by the Americau Jewish Committee. The author of this article is A. M. du Cliayla. a Frenchman by birth, the author of several important studies on Russian theology ami culture. I>ur. ing the war he was coniniunder of a detachment of Don Cossacks and was decorated for heroism. In It HU) M. du Chuylu spent nine mouths at the monastery at Option Poustine as a close neighbor and intimate friend of Xilus. who frequently spoke to him of the Protocols and showed him th.* original document and the commentar ies which be was preparing for it. M. du Chuylu also gathered further in formation concerning Xilus from peo ple who laid known him intimately and this information is here made public for the first time. When he was Introduced to Xilus the third day after his arrival at Option Poustine. du Cliayla found Xilus to be "a man of about ■J"i, a true Russian type, big and broad, with a gray lieard and deep blue eyes.” Xilus came from a family of Swiss emigres who had come to. Russia iu the reign of Peter 1. and boasted of being a direct descendant of a special executioner under Ivan ihe Terrible. A brother of bis was a judge in Mos cow, who regarded Xilus as a mud man. Xilus win well) cducutcd. had . been ifwidtinted fnmi Iho. laiw emy iu Moscow, and knew perfectly French, Herman. and English. He had been appointed judge iu Trans-Cun ensia but his eccentricities and caprici. ous temperament forced nun to aban don that post. M. du Cliayla makes tin* sensation al disclosure that Xilus was at 011 c time about to become the confessor of | the Czar and the Royal family of Rus- j sin but was prevented by bis ene mies and forced to leave iu disgrace. , In I!HS, Xilus lived in Kiev at the convent known as Protection of the Holy Version. In the winter of PUS. PAPA, he escaped to (iermany and lived in Berlin. i Tlic Real Origin of the Protocols. Du Cliayla frequently visited Xilus at bis villa near the monastery where Xilus was living on tin* pension that ills wife was receiving from the Im perial Court. In the course of a dis cussion on religion. Xilus read some extracts from the text and from his commentaries, and was greatly in censed at the Frenchman's failure to be impressed with the document and proceeded to show him a manuscript, which he claimed was me original draft of the sessions of the Wise Men of Zion. Du Cliayla noticed on the front page a large ink spot. The text was French, and was in several hand writings and in different inks. Xilus explained this by asserting that, dif ferent people had filled the post of secretary at. the secret sessions of the Wise Men of Zion. lie did not seem to lie eertniu. however, about this de tail. for at another time lie told dn Cliayla that the manuscript was not the original hut a copy. Ilow Xilus Obtained the Manuscript. Xilus introduced du Cliayla to a certain Mine. I\. who was living with them at the villa. This Mine. K.. whose name du Chuylu does not di vulge. had been in intimate relations with Xilus Iu Paris and, after Xilus bad married, came to lite with him and ids wife. Mine. Xilus was a sub missive woman who did not object to tills arrangement. Xilus told du Cliayla that this Mmo. K. while in Paris bad met a certain Ccnernl Rntcliovuky who bad given her tlie manuscript of tin* Protocols which he said lie bad removed from tlie secret archives of tlie Freemasons. This Ratchovsky was bead of tlie branch of the Russian political police which watched Russian political of fenders who bad escaped to France. Du Cliayla once asked Xilus wheth er bo did not think that lie was fol lowing a false trail in accepting as gospel truth the manuscript of Ilnteh kovsk.v. whose unreliability bad been so frequently demonstrated. Xilus answered. "Did not the ams of Balaam utter prophecy? Cannot Hod trans form the bones of a dog into sacred iniraeh*s? If he can do these things, ho enu also make the announcement of truth come from the mouth of a Mar.” The “Museum of the Antrirhrist.” To convince du Chayla further, Nilus showed him a mass of miscel laneons household utensils, insiguhic ot technical societies, diplomatic em blems. etc., which Nilus kept in a small chest. “On each of these ob jects.” says du Chnyln. "his inflamed imagiiiHtion showed him the mark of triangle or a pair of crossed tri angles. Jr was enough for any object to have on it a figure resembling some, what a triangle for Nilus to see in It tbo seal of tin* Wise Men of Zion. Protocols Ignored in Russia. "Tin* first two editions of tin* Pro. tocols. says du Chnyln. "passed almost unnoticed in Russia. In fact only one newspaper reviewed them. The the ological reviews did not even mention these books, and it is doubtful whet li ed they knew of their existence. . . . Most of the authorities of tin* Russia a Church to whom I spoke concerning Nilus and his work regarded him as a crazed fanatic. In lhll, Nilus ad dressed a letter to tin* Patriarchs of the Orient, to the Holy Synod, and to the Pope, asking them to call together the Nth Oeeumeniml Council in order to take measures to protest Christi anity against the coming of the Anti christ. At the same time Nilus preach ed this doctrine of preparedness, to the Monks at Optina. The monastic peace was so troubled by Nilus that the authorities asked him never again to appear at the cloister. of Denlktae rttid Wrung**' "The first indications of public in terest in the ProhM-ols became appar ent. in 11118. A new million of the Protocols was published by Ismnlloff, a Moscow lawyer. The center of anti- Semitic propagamin was then trans ferred to Rostoff. the sent of tie* propaganda, departmeut for tJcncrul Deulkine’s army. From Rostoff tie* Protocols were sent out In great nuin bers and distributed among the units of the volunteers and among the Cos sack troops at Koiihau. They served as fuel to a violent pogrom agitation which brought lurid and pernicious re sults. A circular against this propn. gamin was sent to all the chaplains at the front by Archpriest CJeorge Scha velsky, head of tin* military clergy, hut the effects of this circular were paralyzed h.v the attitude of tin* commanding officers.” M. du Chnyln also tells of the use that had been made of tin* Protocols in tin* pogroms in the I'kraine and under Wrangel in tin* Crimea. They were constantly being used to incite the troops to pillage and oxc«*sses and this constant propaganda eventually contributed to the demoralization ami the defeat of these forces. The following is somewhat abridg ed translation of M. du Clmyln’s ar ticle. Sergey Alcxamirovitch Nilus and flu* Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion. Ily A. M. du Clmyln. INTRODUCTION In tin* first day of April 1021 aftei the evacuation of Crimen and after I lmd spent a few days in Constan tinople I arrived at Lyons. CJrent was my astonishment when I beheld among the new books exhibited in the win dows of the bookstores on the Place Bellecour a French edition of the Pro tocols of the Wise Men »»f Zion, the same book which Sergey Alexand rovltch Nilus. whom I knew personal, ly. bad edited in 1!K)2.

Isitor. ns I rend the Russian period icals appearing in Paris, it became clear to me that the Protocols had become the storm centre for a serious polemic in the press of the world and even in the Russian press. These ob servations moved me to make public what I know of Nilus and his work. 1 must declare at the outset that all the information given hero on Nilus and Ids activities is based on a long and intimate relationship with (Continued on Page Three) ITALIAN PRESS DISAPPROVES POPE’S PALESTINE SPEECH. l’ope’s Attitude I .aid to Po lit h i l Rath er Than Religions Causes.

The “Idea Xnzioiinl” of Rome as serts that the Pope’s bitterness is founded on political rather than re ligions causes, and that the Pope pre fers Turkish to British sovereignty in Palestine.

Text of High Commissioners' sioners’ Speech SAMUEL OUTLINES ENGLAND'S POLICY TOWARDS PEOPLE OF PALESTINE. (.Tewluli Telegraphic Agency) Jerusalem—"l ain distressed flint file harmony between the creed.-f and races of Palestine, which 1 have de sired most earnestly to promote, luis not yet been attained: ami I have given anxious thought to the inoa-s --ures that are best calculated to se cure it. Let me, in the first instance, refer once more to the unhappy mis understanding that has existed with reference to the phrase in the Bal four Declaration—the establishment in Palestine of a National Home for the Jewish people. I hear it said in many quarters that the Arab population of Palestine will never agree to their country, their holy plaii-s. and their lands being taken from them and given to strangers: that, they will never agree to a Jewish government being set up to rule over the Moslem and Christian majority. I*<»ople say that they cannot understand how it is that the British government, which is fa mous thruout the world tor its Justice, could ever have consented to such a policy. I answer that the British Government, which does indeed care lor justice above all things, has never consented and will never consent to such n policy. That is not the mean ing of the Balfour Declaration. It may ho that the translation of the English words into Arabic docs not convey tlieir real sense: they 111ra.11 that the Jews, a pimple who are scattered thru out the world but whose hearts are always turned to Palestine, should In* enabled to found here their home, and that some among them—within the limits that are fixed by the numbers and interests of the present popula tion—should eonie to Palestine in or. der to help by tlieir resources and ef forts to develop the country to tlio advantage of all its inhabitants. If any measures nre needed to convince the Moslem uipl Christian population that these* principles will’lie observ ed in practice, and that tlieir rights are really safe, such measures will he taken. For the British government— the trustee under the Mandate for the happiness of the people of Palestine— would never impose upon them a pol icy that that pimple had reason to think was contrary to thrlr religious, their political or their »*conomlc in terests. With respect to immigration, it is indeed necessary that its extent should he strictly proportioned to the employment available in the country, and further, that the employment should he new work and work of a permanent character. Immigration has Ihhmi suspended pending a review of tin* situation, rules have Ihhmi laid down that persons belonging to the following classes may be udniittcd into Palestine: travellers, persons of inde pendent means, professional persons, relatives wholly dependent upon resi dents in Palestine, and persons who have a definite prospect of employ ment with specified employers or en terprises. In addition a limited num ber of persons, who. at the moment when suspension of Immigration was announced' lnul arrived or even had embarked nr European ports, will now be allowed to enter. But it must be definitely recognized that the condi tions of Palestine are such as not to permit anything In the nature of a mass immigration. I am anxious th.it the people of Palestine should Ik* as sociated more closely with the Ad ministration established under the Mandate, and the question of ensuring a free and a authoritative expression of opinion is now receiving the closest attention of H. M. Government in Lon don. Menu while 1 propose to take immediate steps with a view to en suring closer consultation on admin istrative matters of importance be tween the Government and responsible persons who speak on behalf of all | sections of the population. On tin* | coming into force of the Mandate it is intended by H. M. Government | make provision for Palestine’s Gov- | eminent. The interests of the non- ! Jewish population will not only he, fully safeguarded by the Mandate it- ! self, but will certainly lie provided for | in that instrument.” GRANT VISAS TO PADESTINE (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) London—The British Foreign office, it is reported, Ims sent instructions to all its Ambassadors that Consuls may hereafter grant visas to persons desiring to go to Palestine, if such persons come within the groups named by Sir Herbert Samuel in the state ment he made when announcing the reopening of immigration to l'alestine.

The convention also elected a new Administration, which, conscious of its serious respons. i bill ties, has assumed the task of guid ing the movement in the United States without deflection from the tradition al principles of our historic cause.

The event served to strengthen their determination to enter into the land which is theirs by right of in heritance, which is theirs because of their being a great civilizing influ ence in the land, which is theirs by virtue of tin* Balfour Declaration.
