KHAUSKOPF, a leunert Jewish l.ibbl of Philadelphia, model ately and' we think I mm his standpoint Juili-cimi'-lj ciiticles the teims ot tho note which Sectetai.v Hay lecently dis patched to the f'ounianian government In the pel sedition ot the Jews In tint pilnclpalltv. Di. Ki.iuskopt thinks that the inoi.il effect of the note was dlspoimted b what he stiles Its self pioteetivp Sjililt. The nole was not di lCitly an appeal to the Koum.iniau goveinmenl, from which nothing was to be expected It was ,i piavei to the huinaiiit.u Ian sense of justice of the Euiopp.in poweis who could It they weie so inclined bilng piessuie to be.n upon the Roumanian government to mltigite the political disci iminatinn and social osliaclsm piaoticed toward the Jew. Seel elan- Hav in dwelling upon the obllgations'of the sign.itoiiis to the Beilln tieaty pointed out that their f.iiliup to enfoue Its teims led to the iiiiiulRiation of n huge number ot Roumanian Jews heie, who, owing to the b.itbatnus subjection under which they laboied at home, weie not, to sa the least, piomislng candidates fur assimilation into our citizenship, to which they weie otlieiwlse welcome. D. Kuuiskopt legaids this ciualltlea tlon as a mistake. He believes the note should have been bioadly and un lesenedlv hitiuanitmlau. It might have done some good. As It was, he contends that it did none. It ceitalnly has had little or no pi.ic lleal effect. The rtouninninn Jew is still an outlander. He Is debnued fiom the lights of citizenship in the toun U .v in which he and his foiefatheis weie boin. He cannot pui chase land oi live In the countiy. In the cities he is testilited to the ghetto, and is dis luiuelilsed fiom follow inc: any but the meanest and moie sordid occupations. The apologists for the Iloiinianlnn gov ernment point out that all foieigneis suffer (torn th same disabilities. This Is tine, but the speciousups-. of tho fact iIoph not obscuie Its infamy. The foi eiguei who Is not a Jew Is not a native. The Jew who Is pioscilbecl as a foi elguer Is a native and Invailably the descendant of a native. What Dr. Kiauskopf objecis to as the self-pioteethe splilt of Secietniy llaj's nole Is more appaicut than iclil. Mi. Hay might with diplomatic piopilety have addtpssed a leinonsliance on liu miiultailan giounds alone, but, ho was well awnie what the mental leseiva tlon Implied lu tho founal i espouse giv en to It would bo and ot tho cynical ipceptlon which It would meet lu the fmclgn pioss, ns Indeed It met, nioio or let s liankly, as It was. We would be told that the ttentment by our sol diets of lefiactoiy ot iucoiiiglblc Filip inos did not challenge the admit ntlon of Utitope; that while uegioes wcio buiutd at the stake In the south It demanded no little nsstiuincu on our putt to lemonstiate with an Indepen dent government on the tidmlnlsu ntlon ut Its domestic nlfalts In coupling u mn tuilnl gt lev unco with a leniousliiuuo In the name of liuniunltx, we "may not have fullllled the huuimilluiian obliga tions of a gieac and stinng nation to- m d a vw mured and iinpicitei ted peo ple" Uut our government did. that, which In a piiictlc.il vIpw, seemed to It wesest and best. We slmeiely fcympathle with Dr. Kiauskopf, We tindei stand his posi tion.
