The Canadian government has opened an office in Warsaw that will
examine the passports and papers of emigrants desiring to go to Canada

A conference of Zionists was held in Bucharest to consider the question
of organizing a general Jewish organization for political and economic work,
to assume the responsibility for all such activities, while the Zionists, as
Zforiists, will not have to concern themselves with Jewish political affairs
of Roumania. The Zionists are ready to participate in the work of the
new organization, but they feel that the Zionist Organization itself should
not interfere in internal Roumanian affairs. .

The new geographical division of Poland into voting districts may re-
sult in the diminution of the number of Jewish deputies in the Sejm from
nine, which it has today, to three, one each from Warsaw, Lodz and Lem-
berg. On the other hand it seems probable that the Jewish representation
in the senate will increase provided all Jewish parties vote as a unit. In
that event, senators are likely to he elected from Warsaw, Greater Warsaw,
Cracow, Lemberg, Lodg, Keltz and Lublin.

of Foreign Affairs, announced that the British government had official in-

representatives status that the Jews defended themselves valiantly against
Arab attacks on NOV. 2, and that it was due alone to the work of the Jewish
self-defence corps that the riots were prevented from taking on a whole-
sale and serious character. Attacks, it is learned, took place within the old
city where neither the military nor the police operated. The same source

The Vilna Cathedral authorities have taken steps to remove 26 Jewish
merchants from their stores situated near the cathedral building, on the
ground that the presence of Jews defiles the cathedral. Rabbi Rubenstein
has approached General Zeligowsky with a plea to postpone the expulsion,
and he has promised to refer the matter to the regular court. The Jewish
merchants have been in occupancy of their stores for several years past
and the sudden move of the cathedral authorities is interpreted as simply
another step in the campaign to undermine the economic condition of the
Jews in the city.
