The feather-weight battle between Dnnnj Daly of Bangor , Mn. , nnd Tommy White , tin Chicago board of trade protege , which tool place under the auspices of the Magie Clt ; clubat Gormanla hall , South Omaha , Satur day night , was ono of the longest feather weight fights ou record.

It soon bocami evident that victory depended either upon cLuuico blow or upon the superior cnduranc of ono man or the othor. "White , who Is a slender youth of the gre.v hound order , was in the fullest lluih of henlt ; and strength nnd gave a rare exhibition o the beauties of the Delsurtian movement. Not a whit behind him , however over , was the doughty little downeaster. II is ns staunch nnd well-trigged out as any ma in his class in the country , with stocky leg ; and arms and a torso fairly corrugated wit tnusclec. Ho wore a look throughout th : < seemed to say , "Well , the best ho can overd Is to make a draw of this.11 "White , it must bo understood , had the at vantage of height and reach , and thro < quarters of a pound the best of it In weigh and was expected to do Danny at a Jog. A round after round was reeled off , howovo will ) no marks of punishment marring vlsng or body of olthor man , and as at each su ccsslvo call Daly stopped up apparent ! fresher than ever , the idol of the Wind city's board of trade realized that ho had me a focman worthy of all his brains and rauscl all his science and skill , and thnt ho mu guard himself well or succumb to the stocli little New Enghnder himself. "White , uaturally enough , was the a , gressor , but In all of his repeated rushes 1 failed to laud a single effective blow , but r coived instead a couple of cross-counters fro Daly taat reminded him more tbun ever tin there were two of them "in it.

A largo audience gathered nt the temple of Isriol last Friday night tohcarKabblRoscnau deliver his alscoursoupon the subject'What Can Wo Do for the Russian Jowst" Ills remarks were substantially as follows : "Sympathy Ii ono of the graad elements of human nature , and is demonstrated in Va rious ways and unite many clrourastunccj. ' Of times when cwiors are happy wo smllo with them ; when others rojolco wo rejoice with them ; when others are unsuccessful wo share their despondency , and when others weep wo shed tears of sorrow with thorn. But it Is not always necessary to como In contact with tbo unfortunate to have that noble feeling of sympathy aroused la our hearts. Wo ean hoar , wo can read , and the impressions thus formed will nrouso the feelings of sympathy us quickly as though uo wcro eye-witnesses to the occurrences. "Where can you find a man or woman who has carefully read the pages of Jewish his tory who has not shed tears when the atroci ties committed against our people have boon correctly portrayed ! Take the ilgyptinn. his tories , and you will hnd thorn full of accounts when men have been thrown upon the ground nnd brutally lashed for expressing their re ligious beliefs , It Is ou account of theso. acts of cruelty that our hearts bleed for our suf fering pcoplo. "In these same histories \vo read thattuero was a deter mined effort to persecute tbo .Inxv- Ish pcoplo nnd root them from the face of the earth , Hucli things cause our hearts to bleed for our beloved pcoplo. Wo rend of the or ders compelling the Jews to fall down and worship the idols , nil of which cau'cs our hearts to bleca when wo realize the sufferings that our beloved pcoplo hnvo bocn compelled to en- duro. "But let us como nearer to the present date. Hoits ot armies wcro sent against our people ple , their temples were torn down and bul locks put upon the altar : our people vrero taken captives and carried away to Homo , where many of them were sacrificed for their adhcranoa to their religious fulth. This causes our hearts to bleed for our ancient beloved pcoplo. Wo read of men and women who wcro slaughtered simply because they believed In the teachings of MOSPS , and our hearts bleed as wo think of the awful perse cutions that our beloved pcoplo wcro compelled polled to endure. "Lotus fora moment consider the reign of Isabella ot Spain. Her edict wont forth , ban ishing to starvation and death all of our people - plo who differed with her In religious views. Tlio problem that Is before us Is , what can wo do to help our suffering and persecuted people of the present dny ? "Lot us take the Jewish pcoplo of Hussla and vyo Una that the young men and \\oiaen who uio of the Jewish faith are not allowed the privileges of the institutions of learning ; they nmy bo capable and possess all of the qualifications , but they are denied ad mission to the University of St. Petersburg merely because they are the people of Israel. They nro sent buck to-their homes in disgrace. This is not nil. Our people arc hunted down nnd tha moat oxhorbitunt taxes met levied against thum. Men are not only taxed on the ptoporty thoyoxvn , but they are compelled to pay taxes upon the necessaries of llfo , and it is no uncommon sight to see families driven from their homes , out into the cold world , because they are uuablo to pay the tax levied upon them. Our people are lorbidden to own property , and they aio fotbidden to leave the country where they nro so cruelly oppiesscd If they should by chance manage to get away , they nro followed , their property confiscated , and in many instances they forfeit their lives to pay the penalty. "Tho c nr of Russia grants franchises to the Buddhist who will make his homo In that land , but not to our people , and by this course the Kusslau Jew is kept down and forced to spend his llfo In idleness. "Tho other day I read of a Russian official who was anxious to have u fouj and flltby sewer cleaned without incurring any cx- pcnso to the government. He know that hundreds ot Jewish families wcro starving , und going to the sewer ho commenced an examination. In a short tinio a largo number of the poor Jews congregated about him nnd asked him why ho o was so Intently gazing mto the sewer. Ho explained that ho had lost a valuable jewel and \vould give 25 to ttio man who nould Ilnd the gem. These men thought of their starving children at homo , ana going down into the mud they soon had the sewer clean ed , while thoofllcial laughed at the trick lie had invented to save the expense that Would have been Incurred bad bo hired the work s performed. Thus aio Jews treated in , i Hussin. ' "VVliat can we do for the Russian Jowsl o "Tnero are many solutions of this prob lem nnd each is advocated by men of ability. Some assert that the duty ot these pcoplo Is to fight , and t > y might and main gain ihclr religious and civil liberty. Hut how crucll Others again propose another solution. They say tnat every press , every pulpit and every legislature ) In the civilized world should send addresses to the czar , asking that these people bo allowed tno same rights as his favored sub jects. But I ask you , what effect would let ters or addiesses have upon the ozarl "What \vouldho care ) "To my mmd the solution of this mighty and perplexing problem Is emigrationassisted by tbo people of other nations. There are many countries where they would bo received in open arms. Let them go back to Pales tine ) or lot them como to our blessed United States , where the laws of the government provldo thnt all men may worship according to the aictatcs of their own minds. But , ugain a question arises , Is It practical to bring those Russian paupers to this country ) It is true that many of thorn would ba pau pers , but I would organize nt every port so cieties , the duties of which shouldte to found schools w uero the pcoplo could learn , trades , thus enabling thorn to * bcconio self , supporting. The expense would ty bo enormous , but a tax could ho 'CO bo levied upon the people to keep up these Institutions of learning. ire ot "I bellovo that this Is tbo concern of ovcrj otm press nnd every pulpit , and I bellovo that ( mw. - . systematic plan should bo adopted to belt w. those suffering Jews. They will not bo n del tilvd rltnont to the country , for by associating will hotter pcoplo they will soon become elcvatci to tlio standard possessed by the Amcricoi .ho and German Jews of the present day. "Tho Idea may seem Bcllamyistio to some us hut it Is practical , nnd this great society cai bo formed to help the 4OUO,000 Jews whi today are starving in Russia , and it is th icd ler duty of every man and every woman to pu forth nn effort to relieve the persecutions o ice r's these pcoplo.
