The report read by the President was as follows :—" The Committee, in submitting the twelfth annual report, have no reason to complain of its position or prospects. In spite of the depression of trade, and of the local calls on the Jewish community, the amount collected and forwarded to London last year was LI 5 10s, and a draft for Lll will be transmitted by the outgoing mail as this year's subscriptions. The work done by the parent body in connection with the Alliance Israelite Universelle has been communicated to us in the annual report, when each member will be able to judge for himself the value oi the work performed by the Association how it stands as a powerful champion, guarding the interests of the oppressed, in establishing educational institutions in the half-civilised parts of the world in order to bring brightness and gladness where was hitherto the darkness and squalor of ignorance. Already between 8,000 and 9,000 children are being educated in the principal towns of Asiatic Turkey, in Palestine, in the dark corners of Europe, and Northern Africa, and wherever the light of civilisation is needed. In these schools the youth, after going through a curriculum of study, can enter schools of agriculture or shops where apprentices are taught varied means of livelihood, so that they may become thoroughly independent and self-reliant. In conclusion, the Committee cherish a hope that each member will exert his influence to assist the parent association, who are devoting their energies and their means towards the amelioration of suffering and oppressed Jewish humanity." A vote of thanks to the chairman termi- I nated the meeting. i
