he assertion of Jewish consciousness, not for the purpose of greater gain or more extended power, but with the end in view of making us better men and women, in so far as we become Jews, ought to be at the bottom of all our work. Secretary Isador D. Morrison said in his report: This has been the most prosperous year in the history of the Zionist movement. The gains have been large, and there are now 151 organizations spread over twenty-seven States and eighty-nine cities, including Manila in the Philippines.

At Gadrah, a settlement of former Russian students, a distillery for the manufacture of brandy is already in operation. All in all, the prospects are now good and encouraging. According to the latest statistics there were about 44,000 Jews in Palestine, about one-half in Jerusalem and its environs, the other half occupying farming lands near Carmel and in the valleys of the plains of Sharon and Esdraelon. The Rev. Stephen A. Wise, rabbi of the Madison Avenue Synagogue, New York City, and secretary of the second annual congress of Zionists in Basle in 1898, commented as follows on the work then accomplished: The first congress was held exactly a year ago, upon the initiative of Dr. Theodore Herzl, a gifted man of letters of Vienna, who in his book The Jewish State, has urged Zionism upon the Jewish people as the solution of the Jewish A view of Jerusalem. question.

Zionists, The name applied to those Jews in various parts of the world who have organized themselves into an association to promote the settlement of Jewish colonies in the Holy Land. Out of this movement grew a project for the founding of a purely Jewish political state in Palestine, the chief advocate of which was Dr. Theodore Herzl, editor of the Neue Freie Presse of Vienna. The Holy Land is under the political control of Turkey, and while that country is willing to permit the Jews to colonize there for industrial purposes it has distinctly declared that it will not permit the erection of an independent state. This determination confines the work of the Zionists, especially the Federation of American Zionists, to the purely industrial colonization of the ancient home of the race. A convention of Zionists was held in Basle, Switzerland, in August, 1897, when Max Nordau, summarized the reasons for forming the association and stated its aims. Throughout Europe, he said, the

Throughout Europe, he said, the Jews are oppressed by governments and subjected to cruelty and ridicule in private life. The Jews are friendless among the races of the world; they must stand together and help each other. The best course is to colonize Palestine. It will take about $100,000,000 to carry out the work, and the money is to be raised from the Jews themselves. Every Jew in the world is to be asked to contribute at least 25 cents a year. If successful, the association will plant 5,000,000 Jews

drawn from every rank and circle of condition of Jewish life, who heretofore have held aloof from all touch with the Jewish body politic. And, in the end, whether it be true or not, as is so stoutly held, that many Zionists have returned to Judaism only by way of Zionism, wherefore the greater is the victory, for, as said by Dr. Max Nordau, Zionism is Judaism, and Judaism is unthinkable without Zionism. The fourth annual convention of the Federation of American Zionists was held in Philadelphia, Pa., on June 16-17, 1901. In his annual report President Richard Gotthiel said: We are now reaping the harvest, in many cases a hard harvest, sown by the disorganization which has been produced by want of common purpose, and by our having lived under so many civilizations. The ultra-democratic spirit that saved the Jew in former times may work his ruin to-day, now that organization and combination are the keynotes of the economic development of our time.
