Detroit, Mich., July 6 -- "What you want us to do is to cater to the wealthy employers ol labor, who largely support the synagogue. You are afraid of what the rich may say if we take a stand for social and economic Justice. You quote the scriptures that 'Justice. Justice Shalt Thou Preach? 1 but you are afraid to practice what you preach." With these words. Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, of New York, attacked what he called the reactionary members of the central conference of American Rabbis at last night's session being held in Detroit and demanded the adoption of the report of the committee on the synagogue and "industrial relations," w h i c h was submitted by Rabbi Solomon Foster, of Newark, N. J. The committee recommended that the conference endorse "heartily" the principles of the minimum industrial insurance, workmen's compensation, old and the right of workmen to organize. CONSERVATIVES WIN. HabbI H. Enelow, of New York, declared the conference was not ready to 'approve this economic creed and moved that consideration of the report be put over until next year. When the test came, the "conservatives" won. It was voted to have copies o! the report printed and sent to all members of the conference to be acted upon at next year's convention. FEW JEWISH CRIMINALS.
