SATURDAY. August 23rd, 1919
The author of the article in the institute Economic Bulletin lirst gives
a detailed account of the natural and
eeeiiomlc conditions of Palestine. The
vegetation Is like that of Italy and
Greece, and grapes, olives, oranges,
(lgs, almonds, etc., are grown by
means of Irrigation. The soil is suitable for the cultivation of corn, barley,
sesamun, etc. The forrests, once so
plentiful, exiat no longer. Sheep and
goats are the most lmporlant domestic animals. The chief articles of export are oranges, soup and wine.
The population of Palestine is ubout
700,000 or 10 to 15 per cent or that
found in the time of the country's
prosperity, and It could still maintain
its former population It It recovered
scientifically economic conditions,
About three-fourths of the Inhabitants are Arabs, and there are 12,000
Jews and 100,000 Christians. The percentage of the total population formed
by Jews Is larger than it is in any
other country.
Means of communication leave much
to be desired. The old Roman roads
have been largely destroyed. Several
railroads in course of construction are
expected to open up the country to
foreign capital to a greater extent
than heretofore.
The author describes certain peculiarities of the agrarian system in Palestine. Under Turkish rule the system of land tenure is not favorable to
the cultivation of land by private per-
sone. Agriculture still follows primitive methods.
The history of Jewish Colonization
In Pulesine is then fully dealt with by
the author, especially the colonization
schemes of Baron Rothschild.
Side by side witli the colonization
which lind strictly economic and philanthropic character, a new current of
Ideas, having a national and political
character, developed towards the end
of last century, and was known as
Zionism. The ideal of this movement
is the foundation in Palestine of a
national home for Jews guaranteed
by public law, in accordance with the
programme adopted by the first Zionist congress at Basle In 1897. In the
economic sphere Zionist alms at buying land in Palestine in order to found
there colonics which can be the inalienable possession of the Jewish
people. The colonist receives only the
usufruct. The legal title by which
such land Is held Is that of emphyteusis or hereditary lease. Land thus
acquired is exempted forever from
private speculation, and land revenue
belongs to the state. By this Ideal
Zionism is connected with the ancient
Hebrew agrarian system while at the
same time it keeps pace with the move
ment of modern agrarian reforms.
The means at the disposal of Zionism for the fulfilment of Its task are
the following:
in 1S!I!I, .that is to say, ln the year
in which Uaron de Rothschild's colonies passed to the lea's management,
the Zionist colonial organization founded a Jewish colonial bank, the Jewish
Colonial Trust, n limited liability company which has its offices in London.
II. is the function of this bank to facilitate the purchase ot lands iu Palestine and to grant to colonists short-
term loans and long-term moil gage
credit, hitherto entirely lacking In
Palestine. In 1900 this bank opened

Another Zionist Institution, the Jewish National Fund, founded In 1901,
also became an important colonization
factor, it was organized ns a limited
liiibilily company, having offices In
London. Us Income consists exclusively of gifts and subscriptions, especially from the least well-to-do
classes, The capital llius obtained
amounted to $l,r>itn,niiO at the end of
in 17. This institution enjoys a great
popularity among Jews adhering to
Zionism. It is very active both in tlie
soelnl and economic nnd In the industrial spheres. Ill 1908 it founded
a model agricultural school In the
colony of Klnercth and an olive grove
in I lie colony ot Hulda in Judea near
Hie Jaffa-Jerusalem railway. In thc
snmc year the colony ot Draganya on
Lake Tiberius was founded. In 1910
tho colony of Ben Scenien near Hulda
wns founded to intensify the cultivation of olives.
In 19D8 another important Institution was founded with the help ot the
National Fund, the Palestine Lund Development Company. The object ot
this company Is to mnnnge the binds
of the National Fund, especially those
lying on Lake Tiberias, the value of
which can be realized only by means
of large capital and therefore not by
the Jewish farmers. The Land Development Company also grants to indi
viduals lots of cultivable land'which
it continues to manage if the owners
live outside Palestine. In 1912 It amalgamated with the lea In order to pursue with that body the work ot coloni-
izatlon in Palestine. In this way the
purchase was effected of the Decerns
estate at tbe extreme south of Palestine, near Gaza, of Catrurla in Judea,
and of Karkur which lies near the
coast, halfway between Jaffa andCalffa
This institution also bought other
lands which It- is now preparing for
In 1911 the National Fund was responsible for founding an institution
which aims at forming co-operative
agricultural colonies. It is called the
Erez Israel Settlement Association,
and it has formed two co-operative
colonies of thhis kind, namely the
Marchavla and the Dagavla, on the
principles ot Professor Oppenhelmer.
An account of the work of the colonization companies is given In the
article In the Institute Bulletin. 'A
table is included giving the name,
year of foundation, approximate population, area and purpose ot each colony. Details of the loans made to colonists by the Anglo-Palestine Company Banks are given. Co-operative
credit societies have been established.
Urban colonization Is also much
encouraged by the Jews ln Palestine,
witli a view to attracting the most
well-to-do classes, who establish them
selves In towns, and to providing an
easy market for the produce of neighboring Jewish colonies. Such colonization has been very active in the
neighborhood of Jaffa, where a sort of
suburb. Tai Aviv, or Spring Hill, has
been established. With its wide and.
clean streets and its dwellings supplied with all the apparatus of modern
comfort. It resembles a modern European garden city. The National Fund
has through the medium of the Anglo-
Palestine Company contributed $50,-
000 to the making of little Jewish
The Vancouver Island farmers have
now started an attempt to solve the
meat question for the benefit of producers and consumers. The farmer's
co-operative association of Victoria
has opened a large meat store in the
centre of the city, a stone's throw
from the City Hall. It has nearly 1500
square yards of floor space, and It is
the intention to sell meat for the
wholesale price plus the bare cost of
handling. A large percentage of the
farmers of the district are pledged to
do all their business at this store.
The handling of feeds, wholesale groceries, etc., will also be from this
