BERLIN, Nov. SO.-The St. Petersburg
correspondent of the Vosslche Zeltung, who

leaders of political and feoclallstic classes
outside the court circles, cables by way of
Stockholm, under yesteiduy s date, as fol
lows: : " '
The' result of these Interviews in that ac
tion of tne temstvo congress In recognizing
the socialist organisation as the strongest
has driven1 many wavering elements to join
Ihu socialists, although these openly pro
claim that the capitalists will be abolished
ua soon as the government is displaced. A
rich merchant' Informed me that he pays
5tt roubles weekly to the strike leaders who
give him permanent guard of workmen.
Confidence In Premier Wltte's cabinet Is
disappearing In political and commercial
circles, since t U growing daily more evi
dent thst Wltte In without the necessary
power from the emperor. Partisans of the
reactionary Interior Minister Durnovo con
llrmed. to, me th statement that Prince1
Tcherbatoff is organizing-- a. loyal militia.,
and added that Durnovo and Tcherbatoff
ara trying te force matters to such an
extreme that at a ivn moment they ran
fall upon the liberals with this temporary
militia. The-classes designate. Durnovo as
Wltte's successor. In a very few daya a
crisis .must deokie whether tho autocracy
will be rasurrected. .
The socialist, are. very optimistic. They
hope soon' W spread u 'general strike all
over Russia, except In Poland. They re
gard all the technical troops us pledged to
them. , Qf th other, (roups they do. not yet
trust the division of guards.
The socialists say that tho activity of the
reactionists comes very opportunely for
them, sinco It drives the liberals to the
socialists, which facilitates their fight
against the capitaJiala. .They assert that
they have no dodbl that the proletariat
will be supremo In Hi. Petersburg within a
vi l y abort II. m. although only part of the
lower officials of the post tuid telegraph
departments have hitherto Joined the strike.
The railway oieruitvca will also strike
Huun bee-anae. Duihovu arrested their repre
scrftatis'KM contrary to tho government's
promise. ' In some quarters there Is a de
mand that tl emperor come to St. Peters
burg and Ihuc a manifesto to tho puce
:iM element. It Seeius to nic that the
moment for this has passed. The emperor's
entrance into 4h city could only lead to a
i'utastrophe which- may be postiHjped and
perhups avoided by iiiij remaining at Tsar

According In my personal convictions the
si( nation grows hourly worse. Kvents can
not be stayed urnl pew bloodshed is un
avoidable, since (lie reactionists and social
ists alike wish it. The Imperial housu and

F. C. Vunduzer. chairman of the Amer

great hall was unadorned except for au
American earj, backed up by monster
American and British flags above the seat

many women. The band played American

After defending the use of the term
"America," as applied to the Cnitcd States,
quoting from Pitt, Fox, Burke and Daniel
Webster, who so ued It, thus absolving
the present generation from the charge of
undue assumption, Mr. Reld said that the
thought uppermost In the minds of Amerl- j
cans, who everywhere were celebrating the
festival, was pride In America, pride in Its
prosperity at home and In Its renown
abroad, profound gratitude for the blessings
of peace, gratitude that It bad pleased
Providence that America should be helpful
In bringing peace to others, and above all
gratitude that there was now no cloud at
the horlxon and that America had not an
enemy In the world
Mr. Reld paid a tribute to President
Roosevelt. He said that the pride of Amer
icana In the president waa not the prldo
of party, but cf the patriotism In all
parties, because the mutations of policies
had brought to the front and kept In the '.
front such a type of American as was now
known to tho world as "Theodore Roose
velt." Concluding with a fine peroration, tho am
It is a goodly land that the Lord, our
Ood. has given us. Thus far have we
come with the hand of our God upon us.
Such were tho pious phrases which on these
occasions our fathers were wont to use. I
close with one in a similar vein from an

We have today only to look about us to
discover that In every phase of present
American enterurise and effort, the Jews
of the United States, with unrestricted tol
eration and equality, ate making their im
press more and more deep and permanent
upon our citizenship. They accumulate
wealth without exhibiting or encouraging
harmful extravagance and business reck
lessness. They esecially care for their
poor, but they do It sensibly and In a way
that avoids pauper-making. Cm every side
are seen monuments of their- charitable
work and evidences of their determination
to furnish their children and youth equip
ment for usefulness and self-support. It is
not among them that dangerous discon
tent and violent demonstrations against
peaco and order are hatched and fostered.
There may be something of separateness in
their social life among us; but this should
be naturally expected among those who
are not altogether flee from the disposition
born of persecution li nd the loss of nation
ality, to seek In a vninon devotion o their
peculiar religious creed the strongest bond
of their social fellowships. And yet. with
It all, they are by no means laggard In the
civic duty and the work In behalf of tho
general welfare of the state which are the
badges of good citizenship.
It Is time for the unreserved acknowl
edgement that the toleration and equal op
portunity accorded to the Jews of the
I'nitrd States have been abundantly repaid
to us. And In making up the accounts, let
us not omit to put to their credit the occa
sion presented to us through our concession
to them of toleration and equality of
strengthening by wholesome exercise the
spirit of broad-minded Justice and consid
eration, which, as long as we are true to
ourselves, we must Inflexibly pronounce as
the distinguishing and saving trait of our
No Place for Prejudice.
I know that human prejudice especially
that growing out of race or re.igion is
cruelly inveterate arid lasting. But wher
ever in the world prejudice against the
Jews still exists, there can be no place for
It among the people of the I'nited States,
unless they are heedless of good faith, rec
reant to the underlying principles of their
free government and insensible to every
pledge Involved In our boasted equality or
Roger Williams, the pioneer of religious
liberty In America expressed the fear, long
before the I'nile $tates became a nation,
that England ant the other nations had a
score to pay to the Jews, and he added
these words: "1 desire not the liberty to
myself which I would not freely and Im
partially weigh out to all the consciences
of the world beside." Our nation will have
no score to pay to the Jews. As a people
we shall never suffer the humiliation of
appealing to them for favors with the
shamefaced ness of intolerance unforgotten
and unfurgiven. The Jews of the' United
States have become our fellow-c'Msens and.
like us, have at heart c-ie ptsperity and
safety of our common country, forasmuch
as we have desired not that llbery to our
selves which we would not freely and Im
partially weigh out to all the consciences
of the world lieslde.
After all. it comes to this. We celebrate
an event in the history of our country
fraught with important results deeplv con
cerning us all as citizens of the t'nited
States. In the spirit of true Americanism
let us all rejoice in the good which the set
tlement we commemorate has brought to
tho nation in which we all find safely and
protection: and, uninterrupted by differ
ences In religious talth, let is. under the
guidance of the Genius of Toleration and
Equality, here consecrate ourselves more
fully than ever to united and devoted lubor
In the field of our common ration's ad
vancement and exaltation.

The reparation of the L'.Vith anniversary
of the settlement of the Jews In the 1'ntted
States properly emphasizes a series of his- i
tnrical facts of more than merely national
slirnlncanre. Even In our colonial period
the Jews participated In the unbuilding of
this countrv, acquired Citizenship and took
an active nart In the development of for
eign and domestic commerce. During the !
revolutionary period they aided the cause
of liberty by serving In 'he continental
army and bv substantial contributions to
the empty treasury of the republic. During
the civil war thousands served In the
srmles and mingled their blood with the
soil for which they, foueht. I am glad to
he able to any, In addressing you on this
occasion, that while the Jews of the l'nlt"d
States who number more than l.ano.oio,
have remained loyal to their faith and their
race traditions: they have become lndis
snlubly incorporated In the great army of
American citizenship, prepared to make all
sacrifice for the country, either In war or
peace, and striving for the perpetuation of
good government and for the maintenance
or the principles embodied in our constitu
tion. Thev are hnnnrablv dlstlneulshed bv
their Industry, their obdlence to law and
their devotion to the national welfare. They
are engaged In generous rivalry with their
fellow citizens of other denominations In
advancing the Interests of our common
countrv. This Is true not only of the de
scendants of tho early settlers and those of
American birth, but of a great and con
stantly. Increasing proportion of those who
have come to our shores within the last

tha .Ureal a'tralts nf rvennrv and misery. '
All, Americans may well lie proud of the
extraordinary Illustration of the wisdom
and streneth of our governmental system
thus afforded. In a few years, men and
women, hitherto utterlv unaccustomed to
anv of the privileges of citizenship, have
moved mightllv unward toward the stand

I srentlv rearet mv Inability to partici

The event Is orie which we may all take
pleasure In observing with appropriate cer-einoni-s,
for the Jewish people have con-
Minuted -and are contributing mur iuii
measure to our national growth and
strength. They are enamored of our In
stitutions and are a part of that . loyal.
Intelligent, conservative citizenship which
constitutes tho Htay .and support of the
great republic. " Our hearts are filled-with
gratitude In, thla- hour -of national thanks
giving that Jew and Gentile enjoy abso.
lute political equality and dwell together
In aniltv and good fellowship throughout
the limits of tho United States. Here
thev entertain for each othr a hiffh deirree
of respect nnd good will and rejoice in J
their common national Intelligence. Tliey
are alike touched by tho atrocities In
flicted uisin the Jew in Russia, l'hy are
moved by a common fraternal Impulse to
make their protest against this monster
crime of modern times and send their
aid and sympathy to those In sore dis

the Jews in America may continue to
enjoy the fullest possible measure of
prosperity and happiness and that free
dom In our common country mav forever

Mayor Modellan'a Address.
Mayor McClellan. Governor Hlgglns, Mr.
Sulzberger and Dr. Mcndes each spoke
words of congratulation and told of various
phases of the Jews' progress In America.
Mayor -McClellan said In the course of his
nddress thnt he did not Bharo the fear of
those who foe that If the enormous Immi
gration of non-Englli-h speaking peoples Is
continued It will menace the Institutions
of this country.
The United Btates, he declared, needs a
vastly greater population and can easily
support half a billion people properly dis
tributed. . .
"There" are' two duties," the mayor said,
"which we owe the incoming Immigrants.
One is a' duty which cannot be performed
by a government without socialism, and
that has no place In American Institutions.
It is the duty of trying to prevent conges
tion in the Juhnr market or trying to dis
tribute the Incoming immlgrints where they
are needed, and not permitting them to
remain where the labor market N glutted.
This Is a duty which should be undertaken
by every citizen of tills country, for It ap
peals to every one of us.
"The other duty is one which the govern
ment mu( undertake, it is the duty of
education. Something can be done with
the older Immigrants by education; every
thing can be done with the young genera
tion, with the children."
