      Lyons

      Hello All. My hypothesis was that the Hebrew Dramatic Club was more friendly to the Socialists than to the Orthodox. Seems correct.

      Lewis Lyons was editor of "The Anti Sweater" and a witness before the select committee on sweating.

      Clipping is from "The Jewish Standard" September 13, 1889.

      Cheers.

        Yiddish

        Hello All. How does the orthodox Jew view Yiddish? See below.

        Yiddish was performed at the club.

        Cutting from "The Jewish Standard" November 15, 1889.

        Cheers.

          Hi Lynn. I look forward to reading this thread when I have the time, but may I ask why you chose a December edition to translate? Historically, for our purposes, wouldn't the edition that Krantz was editing on the night of the murder, and the one to follow the next week, be of the most interest?

          Yours truly,

          Tom Wescott

              Warum? Warum nicht.

              Hello Tom. Thanks.

              "may I ask why you chose a December edition to translate? Historically, for our purposes, wouldn't the edition that Krantz was editing on the night of the murder, and the one to follow the next week, be of the most interest?"

              Umm, it was the only one I found available. AND it was free. (Important to me, racially speaking--heh-heh)

              Cheers.

                  I told you ages ago I have a copy of the Arbeter Fraint Krantz was working on at the time Stride was killed and a copy of the edition the following week. I assumed you had these as well, which is why you were seeking a translator.

                  Yours truly,

                  Tom Wescott

                    whence

                    Hello Tom. Thanks for the flyer.

                    No, I have only the 1 copy of AF, generously provided by Warwick University.

                    Out of curiousity, where did you get those 2 issues?

                    Cheers.

                      I ordered them from the British Library. They have a complete collection, although their copies are brittle. At first they didn't want to make copies because of the condition of the papers, so the next day I had Luca Brazzi call them. My copies arrived a few days later.

                      Yours truly,

                      Tom Wescott

                        thanks

                        Hello Tom. Thanks. Wow, the entire collection.

                        Yes, the University of Warwick has a proscription on some of their Wess materials--for that same reason.

                        Cheers.

                          Nice work Lynn!
                          I confess that altruistic and cynically selfish talk seem to me about equally unreal. With all humility, I think 'whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might,' infinitely more important than the vain attempt to love one's neighbour as one's self. If you want to hit a bird on the wing you must have all your will in focus, you must not be thinking about yourself, and equally, you must not be thinking about your neighbour; you must be living with your eye on that bird. Every achievement is a bird on the wing.
                          Oliver Wendell Holmes

                              Thank you both so much, Lynn and Tom, for posting the newspapers snippets and the tailor's strike flyer.
                              Tom, how do you know that the 2 copies of the AF you own don't mention Stride's murder (which hardly surprises me)? From Zinna's IWEC article? I don't suppose you've had those 2 copies transcribed/translated?
                              Lynn, since the British Library has the entire AF collection, how about if we ordered the October/November 1888 issues, plus summer of 1902/1903 and February 1905 the latter ones to try identifying Schwartz-no-first name? Perhaps we could ask Dr. Turtletaub to go through the issues and seek for specific relevance before attempting a full translation, to keep costs down?

                              I'm so sorry I can't contribute to the (significant) expenses, but I promise to
                              - go through ALL possible archives/sources in Paris, and there are many, and truly promising
                              - at some point in about a month, go check if they have any relevant sources at the Staatsbibliothek Berlin
                              - I'd consider going to London from Paris for a quick visit, if necessary.

                              Lynn Cates wrote: the University of Warwick has a proscription on some of their Wess materials
                              Lynn, what kind of Wess materials?
                              And by the way Lynn, how's the search in the sweaters documents going (poor you)? Lynn, you're a real martyr for Ripperology. We should erect a statue in your honour. (Perhaps on Berner Street?) No joke.
                              Best regards,
                              Maria
