GETTING THK NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890
GETTING THK NEWS. When a New York Grand Jury had the Black case under consideration a World reporter concealed himself behind some curtains, and in this way furnished the paper he was serving a report of the proceedings. The World editorially condemns the "mistaken zeal" of its reporter, but before doing so used the information thus obtained. Other New York journals are not inclined under the circumstances to accept the editorial disclaimer in good faith. They reason that if the World really did condemn the "mistaken zeal" of the reporter it would have abstained from publishing his report. Admitting that the editor did not see the reporter pulled out by the ear from his place of concealment, he must have known that the report at the time It was' handed In could only have been obtained- by stealth. There is some talk of punishing the reporter for contempt, but in view of the fact that his report was published contempt proceedings might be more instructive if directed against the resp...
EDITORIAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890
EDITORIAL NOTES. It is the impression at the national capital that the present session of Congress will be prolonged through the hot summer months, lt is proposed to continue Congress in session until the census returns have been made and then rush an apportionment bill through with a section providing that for a year the districts in each State shall be constituted as at present, the additional members to be elected at large. It is calculated that this plan, if carried out in preference to the McComns bill to prevent the redistrictint; of States, will head off the Democratic gerrymander in Ohio and Maryland. Tho Army Appropriation Bill contained an item of $130,000 for "canteens" at army posts, to contain a gymnasium and a read-ing-room and to allow the sale of beer, wine and lighter drinks, which Congressman Morse of Massachusetts strenuously opposed, endeavoring to secure the adoption of a proviso that no alcoholic liquors, including beer and wine, be sold or supplied to enlisted...

It is proverbial. The kindly care and attention bestowed upon the sick and needy of this faith, the generous aid always ready to flow, no matter how often the appeal be made, these are social characteristics of Hebrews the world over. It is an historical fact that a Jewish beggar is seldom if ever encountered in a Christian country. Tha pauper is equally a rara avis. It would probably be hard to put one's finger on fifty indigent Jews throughout the length and breadth of California. So well and so wisely are his wants anticipated that the pauper scarcely exists. Though doubtless this marked absence of paupe...
