Davis in France robs Canadian Jewry of its outstanding figure. Born in Montreal in 1866, the son of a cigar maker, he became a commanding figure in the financial life of Canada, being frequently referred to as Canada's "Tobacco King" and the "Rockefeller of Canada." He left a fortune estimated at more than forty million dollars. HE WAS ALWAYS VERY ETHICAL IN HIS BUSINESS DEALINGS.MWHEN SOMEONE OFFERED HIM MORE THAN 5 PER CENT INTEREST HE FELT DEEPLY INSULTED. BY ROBERT STONE Sir Mortimer was the first Canadian Jew to be knighted. Far from losing interest in Jewish affairs after he rose to wealth and glory, his concern for his people was if anything more intensified. As late as 1926, less than two years ago, he donated a quarter of a million dollars to the East End Y. M. H. A. and fifty thousand dollars to the West End Y. M. H. A. of Montreal.

Rothschild legend, a legend which -- " began to weave around the old Meyer The name of Rothschild is probably the most distinguished in Jewish life. It represents an international family which, for generations, has been synonymous with all that is noble and generous in Jewish life. i Whether in London, Vienna, Berlin or Paris. the descendants of the Rothschild house have remained faithful, devout Jews, keenly in- terested in the fate of the Jewish people everywhere. A great deal of terest has recently been aroused in the founder of the Rothschild for- tune, Meyer Amsehel Rothschild, due to the original research of the famous scholar, Prof. Wilhelm Berg- hoeffer. Mr. Stone has incorporated into his sketch of the poor orphan who founded the great Rothschildfortune, thc greatest among Jews, much el the new material that was recently dis- covered in old arehives.--Editor. Nobody knows how the Roths- child family came to Frankfurt. One family tradition has it that the Rothsclfilds originated in Denmark and received their name from the town of Roeskildc (which means Rothschild in German). This specu- lative deduction, however, is very implausible. There is, no doubt, as a matter of fact, that the name Roths- child was taken from a housesign in Semite. Yet while their tastes may thus be different their mental outlook is the same. The Jewish Will to Live finds its fullest expression in the British Will to Power. Does England make use of Jewish brains for its own imperial purposes, as some claim? Then what of it? It is a mutual gain. If Jewry gave Britain a Dis- raeli, a Rufus Isaacs, Britain gave Jewry a Balfour Declaration, an opportunity to fulfill its centuries-old aspiration to return to its ancient homeland.

But despite the adulation which must undoubtedly have been show- ered upon Rothschild hie personal conduct was always modest and win- ning. Rothschild was quite well aware of the unusual success that he had achieved, but he always empha- sized the fact that he consideredhis success as "the will of God," thus again evidencing the completely re- ligious outlook upon all phases of life. Hc exemplified the basic rabbinic in- junction of making Judaism synony- mous with life. Rothschild's credit and resources placed him above all the bankers in Frankfort. His connections spread to the various capitals of Europe. One of his sons, Nathan Meyer, migrated to London and founded the English branch of the Rothschild house.

There is no picture extant of Meyer Anschel Rothschild. He feared that his portrait would be mutilated be- cause he was a Jew, and therefore never permitted his portrait to be painted. It is also quite possible that as an orthodox Jew he was opposed to portraits. Contemporaries de- scribe him as a big man. He wore a round, unpowdered wig and a small chin beard. His exterior was typical- ly Jewish. His clothes were simple, even frayed at times. Until his sixty-third year he was extremely strong, traveling constantly, some- thing which was very strenuous in those days. He died at the age of sixty-eight, after having firmly es- tablished the Rothschild house, and irepared the way for its expansion. e left to his descendants a tradition of ethical living which has dominated all of the gigantic business of the Rothschilds. He also transmitted to tlmm a philanthropic instinct which has made the name of Rothschild synonymous throughout the genera- tions with all that is noble and gen- erous in Jewish life. The Jewish people have no greater, no more ap- propriately representative dynasty than the Rothschild, whether these scions of an old house are in London, Paris, Berlin or Vienna.--(Copyright 1928 by Seven Arts Feature Syndi- cate). Will France Be Another America For to expand on his studies of Halacha and Haggada. These years of study were years of hardship for the young- ster. The Rothschilds were poor and Meyer received little material sup- port while away from home. When he was only eleven years old, his father died and the next year his mother followed. An orphan at the age of twelve, Meyer was faced with the necessity of earning his liveli- hood. This he did in a variety of fashions, attaching himself to broker- age houses and business offices. This Irutine continued until he was twenty. But Rothschild utilized his Jewhh Immigrants from East Europe?

In later years, 'ment may be, it is a fact that this when he had expanded his antique idea has been quite popular in Jew- and coin business to a financial brok- ish circles which devote themselves the Ministry of Labor. From this it will be seen that it is by no means easy to obtain such contracts, in the very first place; but it is even more difficult to obtain a release from these obligations, once undertaken.

Under such conditions it is, of course, yam to think of finding in France a "Little America." Still, we must not exaggerate: measured by European standards, France today undoubtedly represents the largest immigration reservoir in Europe. France does need plenty of immigrants, but only of a certain type. It is not the type that prefers the city, but the peasant type, the one who will not shrink from those hard and unprofitable tasks for which the diminished and partly spoiled native stock has lost its taste. What He found it necessary for his mental vigorousness to debate on religious questions with the sages of the Jewish community from time to time. He preferred intelligent companions to rich ociety, keeping open house, for which he possessed a remarkable sense of hospitality. Rothschild was a highly ethical person. Business was business to him, but never a philosophy which breath with New York, Philadelphia and Boston. Of course, the scale is so much smaller, and it is clearly understood that France figures in all these calculations merely in the capa- city of a "little America.' The justification for these hopes seems simple enough. France needs return by force, if necessary, those contract laborers who leave their osition before the lawful oeriod. ubsequently, however, this mrcular was withdrawn as illegal, since it was held that a labor contract was a mat- ter of civil law only and the employer could do nothing more than sue the France is looking for is not more im- migrants, in the usual sense, but more settlers. It is exactly the same pro- blem that we observe in countries such as Canada, Argentina, Russia, Palestine, Mexico. If they are to be received with open arms and establish themselves firm- slave. The British Jew is as patriotic a Britisher as one can find--he'd be a fool if he weren't. He comes to Britain with a unique racial, religious and cultural background; England accepts him without asking him to give up the essential parts of that background that make up the stronger part of the Jew's individuality, of any man's individuality. The British upper classes frown upon the Jew who is cowardly, cringing, fearful of asserting his racial and cultural uniqueness--he is a weakling for which strong men have no use. The Britishness that the Jew assimilates is of his own volition, not forced upon him by a stupid environment. He assimilates all the more freely, all the more readily, Anglo-Saxon culture and ideals and is all the more proud of Anglo-Saxon citizenship, because he is not required to mask his inheritanceand pose as a member of the Anglo-Saxon race. Becoming a subject of His Brittanic Majesty's Government, the more intelligent and more ambitious Jew is made to feel that it will pay him to be first of all true to himself, that it won't help him any to try to lose his identity, that he will be more sensible about it if he meets his environment half-way instead of throwing himself completely into its arms. The British Jew is therefore as British as you can make them--and as Jewish as you can wish, outside of Palestine perhaps. Canada, our next-door neighbor, shows this clearly. It has a bare one-hundred-and-fifty thousand Jews, who have already been able to give to the country a figure like Sir Mortimer Davis and many lesser Jewish lights who play an important role in many fields of Canadian national life. Their help in building up Canada has been appreciated in the past and will be appreciated and duly rewarded in the future by the non- Jewish Canadian. The Jewishness of the Canadian Jew stands out all the more brightly when compared with that of some other countries. The one-hundred-and-fifty thousand Jews of Canada have given more for Palestinian pur- poses in the last few years than the million and three- quarters Jews of New York City, U. S.A. The syna- gogue in Canada has a vitality and carries itself with a self respect and dignity that it often sadly lacks on the other side of the border. Even the poor Yiddish langu- age is not altogether forsaken as an ugly, bastard child by those who were brought up with it. A strange thing indeed for Jews in an English-speaking environment to still cherish the culture that they brought over .with them from the Nalevkis in Warsaw or from Gitke Toibe's Zavoulik in Vilna, to still make a fuss over Yiddish literati and their wares, to refuse to go in for that rupture of the soul which an abrupt break with one's immediate past brings on! But the matter becomes a little clearer when one hears that a Jew in Canada does not even have to come from Germany or some other West-European country in order to make the grade socially The Canadian Jew who happens to be born in Lithuania or Poland doesn't even dream of committing suicide in order that he may be born again into a family that is not of Slavic origin and thus perhaps got a chance to enter Society. A Canadian Jew who has achieved wealth may be a Litvak, a staunch Zionist, thoroughly orthodox and be himself in other such "terrible" ways, and at the same time the Prime Minister of the Dominion may not feel that his official dignity is lowered by dropping into this Litvak's, Zionist's, Orthodox Jew's teas! immigrants and is admitting scores of thousands of them every year.

The book. entitled, "France and the Alien," has a fore- word by M. Herriot, the former Pre- mier and present Minister of Educa- cation. The volume contains a wealth of .interesting statistical ma- terial showing, among other things, that there are now living in France upward of 3 million foreigners, repre- senting 22 countries of origin. The l Italian contingent alone numbered France become in course of time a "'Little America?". Especially now, that the gates of the larger America are defim'tely shut to the Jewish immigrant? There is some justification for such questions, but only in theory; in practice the problem seems to be hopeless because of the peculiar social composition of the Jewish emigrant masses, which makes them anything but desirable to France. M. Lambert states the case quite bluntly in the book which was mentioned above, saying "France requires no bankers with international minds; she needs instead young, vigorous, productive people." In using the term "bank- ers"the author does not confine it to language spoken by the Frenchman of Quebec is given official recognitionthat while Canada is developing a new life on a new soil it is at the same time being con- stantly reminded of its British traditions which have always respected idiosyncracies of race and culture British traditions have been molded by an aristoc- racy that has always been willing to compromise with the aspirations of democracy, with the requirements of life, in order to maintain itself. It has never been the "intransigeant," uncompromising caste that the aris- tocracies of monarchial France and other European countries were until the nineteenth century, but neither has it surrendered its powers and prerogatives Im- peralism did the trick--the British ruling class simply had to admit able men into its ranks and couldn't afford to go in for that caste rigidity which ultimately leads to degeneracy, because it needed the ablest men to maintain its hold upon the seven seas and upon the remotest corners of the world. This compromise be- tween aristocracy and democracy is the source of vitality of the British Empire. It is understandable to the Jew who like the Briton in his wanderimgs through the world has learned to compromise in order to survive, without at the same time losing his superior strength. Such an upper-class realizes that while racial and environmental distinctions mean a whole lot among men and mean everything among the lower orders of men, these are after all only distinctions between one herd of sheep and another Such a class adjudges each individual separately; family pedigree--what we Jews call "Yiches"--is one of its criteria for judging the individual, but his achievements in later life are even more important in determining his value. Snob- ocracy spurns an'able man because he is dark-skinned or because he had the misfortune to be born in Eishi- shok, Kovner Gubernie, and his table manners are therefore not just so-so; a wise and sober aristocracy like the British wonders whether this man's grand- father might not have been a Spanish Don or a noted Roy in his town--usually after it has given the man's talents due recognition and reward. --P.R. deserting employee in court for the loss caused.
