SIR 3IOSES MONTEFIORE.
A Noted Centenarian.
It is inevitable that the first
thought of any one who sees or
speaks with Sir Moses Montefiore
should be the thought of his im
mense old age. Even now, though
human life seems to be really length
eaing, centenarians are rare enough
to make them interesting we extend
the term, perhaps hardly legitimate',
to Sir Moses Montefiore, who is 99
but when a man in a prominent posi
tion lives to that age, the thought of
what ho has seen and done, of the
changes through which the world has
passed during his time, becomes
overpowering. Sir Moses has seen
the great work of his life crowned
with success in very niany coun
tries, and this thought, no doubt, is
that on which he and his Jewish
friends will dwell with the greatest
satisfaction to-morrow. But outside
observers will reflect with almost
greater interest on the men that he
has seen in this long life of his, on
the epochs through which he has
passed, and on the contrasts which
the world of to-day presents to the
world in which Sir Moses Montefiore
spent his youth. Born in 1783, he
may possibly remember the taking of
the Jsastile, and ho will certainly rec
ollect the execution of Louis XVI,
and the fall of ltobespierre. He can
probably recall the sensation caused
by each of Nelson's victories, and
will recall with accuracy the feel
ings awakened in England by the
events of the "Pensular War. When
the news of Waterloo came to his
brother-in-law, Mr. N. llothschild,
Montefiore, who was with him in
business, probably shared with him
the advantages to be gained from
the exclusive information. He was
past forty when Catholic emancipa
tion and the reform bill was carried,
and had arrived at full ago when
Queen Victoria ascended the throne,
let it is since that date that he has
done tho greater part of the work
by which he is known throughout
the world the work of practically
helping his suffering brethren wher
ever they were to bo found. His
journeys to Palestine began in 1827,
imd they only ended in 1875, when
he was past 90 years of age. He vis
ited tho sultan in 1810, tho cfcar in
1816, and Cardinal Antonclli, to try
to rescue the boy Mortara, in 185S.
No journey has been too long or too
difficult, and no work too tedious
for him, if help could be gained for
those who sorely needed it Nor has
his help been confined to thoso of
his own race and religion. We tell,
this morning, some curious stories
of tho aid he has given to persons
who had no claim upon him except
the claim of distress, imd we quote
the letter which he wrote to this
journal in I860, and which had so
much effect in stimulating public
sympathy for the unfortunate christ
ian of the Lebanon. The clerical
and other speakers in the meeting
at Bamsgate yesterday had good
reason to speak of his universal be
nevolence. Tho Montefiores are, as
the name implies.Italian Jews, though
there is a difficulty in deciding when
and whence they settled about the
little town on the eastern slopes of
the Apennine, which bears that name.
In different countries the Jews have
different modes of choosing sur
names; in England they are mostly
called by Old Testament names, pos
sibly somewhat altered Levi, Lewis,
Abrahams, Moss; in Germany and
some other countries they take the
names of towns and call themselves
Erlanger, Breslauer, Oppenheim. A
fortunate chance gave to the ancest
ors of tho venerablo philanthropist
the name of tho littlo town near tho
Adriatic; but they aro first heard of
as settled near Leghorn, where the
.Jews number no less than 7000 at the
present time. The grandfather of
Sir Moses, Moses Vita Montefiore,
settled in England 130 years ago as
a merchant "trading with Italy. One
of his sons married Bachael Mocatta,
one of tho family of Spanish Jews,
whose name is still so well known in
London, and the first child of this
marriage was Moses, born at Leghorn
in 178i, on tho 24th of October, corre
sponding in that year to tho 8th of
tho Hebrew month Chesvan, which
falls somewhat later in the present
year. It is well known that the Jew
ish trading community is headed by
a kind of close aristocracy of great
financiers, who are closely connected
with one another by marriage; and of
this aristocracy, if such it may be
called, the Montefiores aro leading
members. Sir Moses is half Monte
fiore and half Mocatta; ho married
Miss Judith Cohen, whose sister mar
ried the founder of the English house
of Rothschild. These four names are,
with ono or two more, coextensive
with the inner circle of English Jews.
Many of those who bear one or other
of the names have gone much more
deeply into finance than Sir Moses,
and have consequently left them
selves neither tho heart nor the time
to do the good that he has done. Ho
left the stock exchange early and en
tered into other and less exciting
kinds of business. He helped, to
found the Alliance Insurance office,
tho Imperial Continental Gas associa
tion and the Provincial bank of Ire
land. But, though he did not cease
his connection with business, he was
never absorbed in it We have already
said that his passionate devotion to
his race led him to visit Palestine in
1827, through great difficulties more
like those which would now attend a
journey to Bokhara or Yunnan than
those which wo associate with a trip
to Jerusalem. But what distinguishes
tho work of Sir Moses Montefiore
from that of any other philanthropist
is the success with which ho has
pleaded the cause of the Jews in the
quarters to whicl under ordinary
circumstances, their cry could not
have reached. In 1840 he extracted
from tho sultan a firman, which has
been of real service, many times over,
in tho cause of the Jews of the Turk
ish empire. He got something moro
than civil speeches from the Em
peror Nicholas, and in, 1872, in a
second visit to Bussia, he was deeply
gratified to notice the improvement
in the lot of his Bussian brethren.
He penetrated even to Morocco in
1863, and in 1867 to Bucharest, where
the Jews are perhaps more hated
than in any other city in Europe.
Neither danger, nor distance, nor dis
couragement has ever prevented him
from going on his errands of charity.
Sir Moses Montefiore has seen many
changes in European society, but
none greater than that which has
passed since the beginning of this
century, over the condition of the
Jews. In Bussia and the backwood
regions of eastern Europe they aro
still, indeed, miserably poor, and are
as liable as ever to outbreaks of
hatred on the part of the Christian
peasantry and of those who wish to
turn that hatred to account. Civil
ized Germany even is inclined to
"boycott'' them; but the very fact is
a proof that they have iu the last half
century prospered so very much more
than their rivals that the jealous hos
pitality of the latter must from time
to time break out. The difference is
that what is now abnormal and ex
ceptional was expressed by law fifty
years ago. Jewish disabilities, not
extending merely to the right of sit
ting in parliament, but to half the
rights of citizenship, existed even in
England, which boasts of being in the
forefront of enlightenment, until Sir
Moses had himself had ample time to
experience them. Now, not only
have the Jews got rid of their disa
bilities, but their power is very great
and far-reachmg. Much of the conti
nental press is in their hands. They
control tho bourses. National finan
cial operations are regarded by them
as to a great extent their own affair.
Their well known qualities of patience,
insight and mutual fidelity, and their
habit of thinking nothing beneath
the notice of a man of business, havo
given them success. What the future
of the race may be no man would
prophesy; but if their progress is as
rapid as it has been during Sir Moses
Monlefiore's lifetime, they will iu the
next century be an important fact in
deed. London Times.
The Wrecked Victoria.
Further information received at
the offico of tho Pacific Coast Steam
ship Company is to the effect tnat
the Victoria struck a sunken rock off
Port Orford at about two o'clock on
Wednesday morning. She rapidly
filled with water, and it was found
necessary to beach her. The passen
gers succeeded in getting ashore safe
ly, although the sea was breaking
over her. A messenger was at onco
dispatched toCoos Bay, the nearest
telegraph station, and from that point
the intelligence was given. Sho had
1,600 tons or coal and a number of
passengers for San Francisco. Cap
tain Beichraann, who was in com
mand, has been in tho employ of the
Oregon Bailway and Navigation Com
pany and the Pacific Coast Steam
ship Company for several years past
Tho cause or the disaster is left to
conjecture. Tho place sho struck was
nearly twenty miles out of her regu
lar course, and it is presumed that
at the time of the accident sho was
making for Port Orford to tscape the
heavy weather then prevailing; The
Jiernard Castle reports a heavy gale
and very heavy seas, in which sho re
ceived some rough usage and sus
tained moro or less damage about tho
decks. Tho Victoria must have been
in the same storm, and the indications
are that she was seeking shelter, al
though it may be that sho was too far
in toward shore through a fault in
reckoning. The steamer was built of
iron, in Newcastle, England, in 1866,
and for years ran under the name of
Bolivar on the coast of Chile In 1878
she ran ashore on the Central Amer
ican coast and was condemned. The
hull was bought by GoodaL Perkins
& Co. for something like $12,000. They
brought her to San Francisco and
had her entirely rebuilt The hull
was cut in two and sevonly-five feet
added to her length, $150,000 being
expended upon her. She was then
placed under the American flag, christ
ened Victoria and went into the coal
trade between there and Victoria. It
is reported that sho was insured in
England for $120,000. Her cargo of
coal is valued at something over $7,
500, and is uninsured. It was sold
at the mine by John Bosenfield to the
Pacific Coast Steamship Company,
and the latter will be the sole losers.
The officers of the wrecked steamer
are Capt. Beichmau, Chief Officer
Humphreys, third mate H. D. Smith
and Chief Engineer It. Turner.
Deaths on the Idaho.
Charles Carlson, a seaman, was lost
overboard from tho Idaho on tho
night of tho 29th tilt, while the
steamer was doubling Cape Flattery.
He was on duty as "lookout" in tho
bows at tho time, and it is supposed
a sudden lurch of the vessel caused
him to lose his balance and fall into
the water. Deceased was a native of
Sweden, aged 24 years, and has an
nnclo residing in Santa Clara county,
Frederick Johnson, a seaman, whilo
engaged in discharging freight at
Killisnoo, Alaska, met with a fearful
accident, resulting in his death thirty-six
hours afterward. Amongst
the freight was a heavy iron tank
consigned to the Northwest Trading:
Company, weighing ten tons. In un
loading the massive tank Johnoon, to
facilitate operations, got inside, and
when thus engaged the rope by
which tho tank was being lowered
parted, causing it to slide aft. John
son jumbed from the tank, only to bo
caught between it and tho steamer,
sustaining injuries which resulted in
