THE JEWISH SOUTH.
A JOURNAL DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF JUDAISM. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. HERBERT T. EZEKIEL Eiitor M Prop, 722 Eabt Maix Street. Subscription, One Dollar per annum. Single Copy, Five Cents. Advertising Rate, 50 cents per inch. Entered at the Post Office, Richmond, Va., as second ciass mail matter. Why Not Organize ? In ita last issue the Syracuse (N. V.) Jewish News again advocates the formation of a Press organization, to be composed of editors and other writers of our faith. While a journalistic infant like The Jewish South —still in ita editorial swaddling-clothes Be to speak—is not supposed to have any opinions of its own, we would say from a mere casual glance, that the idea appears to us to be an excellent one. It might do much good, and could certainly accomplish no harm. Daring our brief editorial career we have been more than once impressed (unfavorably we might say) by the numerous petty bicker ings and bitter personalities in which some of our contemporaries engage. We conscientious ly believe that it a grand gathering of all the Jewish editors could be bad, where they could take each other by the handd and look into one another's eyes and there read that each was advocating true Judaism as he saw it, that a quietus wo dd be put on all this unseemly warfare. For a motto we would suggest that of the Jewish Publication Society—"lsrael's mission is peace." And to save any unnecessary dispute as to location, we would suggest Richmond as the best place in the country in which to hold a convention to organize the Jewish Press Asso ciation. The Review. The first number of The Jewish Review of Cleveland Ohio, is to hand. In the prospectus, the publishers expressed their intention of issuing a Jewish journal of high standard and right well have they kept their word. The publication ia beautifully gotten up with an engraved cover, contains sixteen pages, and is to appear weekly. Typographically it is a gem, and its contents are in full keeping with its appearance. Dr. J. Machol is editor and Mr. S. Oppen heimer business manager of The Review. Under such auspices success is a foregone conclusion. While it ia true our " nose is out of joint" as the youngest of the fraternity, we cheerfully extend onr hand to our Cleveland contemporary and say, " We are glad to see you." "Robin Adair" (Dr. Pleasant*) the Peters burg correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch, is an accomplished gentleman and a jonrnalißt of experience. All the same, we will dare say the Doctor can give no satisfactory explanation of his reason for using the expression "Russian Hebrew" in connection with a recent assign ment in that city. We know from personal experience that such usage is postively forbidden in every depart ment of the Dispatch, and even when over looked by the correspondence editor, the proof reader has standing orders to eliminate any such expressions. In this particular instance, this latter personage was a new-comer and unacquainted with the office rules, hence the paragraph alluded to. Kind Words. "The Jewish South comes to us each week. It has the right spirit about it, and in time will became a valuable champion of Judaism. Ribbi £. N. Cali oh is a liberal contributor, and it is such help which makes any Jewish paper popular. We hope The Jewish South will lie aa welcome a in every Jewitih home in tie South land as it is in our panctnni."— Jtwixh News, Syracuse N. Y. We would thank our friend for his kind words, assuring him at the same time that he speaks truly. Well do we know bnt that for tbe valuable assistance of Rabbi Calisch The Jewish South would not be where it is to day. During the course of a drunken broil several days since, one monk killed another in a mon astery in Bethlehem, which it is claimed en closes the birthplace of Christ. This was hard ly a demonstration of peace and good will. THE STATE, HAS Telegraph #: News l FROM ALL THE WORLD. Get Your Lunch.
