Statistics for the year 1920, just published, show that out of a total
population of 545,000 in Kiev, 115,000 are registered as Jews. Twenty-two
per cent of the membership of the largest trade unions are Jews; 82 per
cent of the workers in the clothing industry are Jews, as are f2 per cent
of the Kiev merchants.

The evacuation of Ukrainian Jewish refugees from Roumanian soil will
probably commence in the spring, Premier Take Jauescu and War Minister
liolban informed a representative of Nlantuirea, a Jewish publication in
Bucharest. Temporary employment for the refugees will be provided by the
government in the meantime, the government representatives said.

Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the • World Zionist Organization, will

viously announced his intention of promoting certain enterprises in the

The Association of Italian Jews has informed the Rabbinical authorities
of Warsaw that it is ready to do its share toward aiding Polish pogrom
victims and to adopt its quota of pogrom orphans. At a recent meeting of
the heads of Italian Jewish communities the Jewish population of Italy was
charged with shirking their responsibilities toward their stricken co-religion-
ists in Poland.

A solemn denunciation of the atrocities committed by Roumanian officials
against Ukrainian Jewish refugee's on the banks of the Dniester was con-
tained in a protest delivered by Rabbi llertz before representatives of Jewish
committees engaged in alleviating the distress among the Ukrainian Jews.
The Rabbi recalled the acts of depredation, murder and rape reported to
have been committed by Roumanian officials.

A change of heart on the part of a number of Royalist deputies in the
Hungarian Parliament toward the Jewish question, unattributable to any
specific cause, is noted by the Jewish press of Hungary. A number of depu-
ties who are known to have aided in the ex-Kaiser Karl's coup de'etate are
evincing a marked friendship towards the Jews, advicating conciliation of
their demands Some have gone no far as to attack the Ilorthy regime,
it is stated.

The continued existence of the religious schools in Soviet Russia, despit e
the commissars' edict to close all such schools, is irritating the Soviet offi-
cials, a report in the Moscow Emess, communist organ, states. In Hornet
alone, 2,1100 children continue to attend these schools, it is alleged, and
the commissars are at a loss to account for the cunning displayed by the
administrators of these schools who succeed in concealing their existence
from official observation.
Minister of the Interior Horthopan has been holding conferences with
representatives of the various minority groups in Roumania with a view
to determining the rights of the minority groups. The remarkable thing
about these negotiations is said to be their individual nature. Instead of
consulting all group representatives at the same time, the representatives
have been called in separately. The Jewish representatives are expecting
r to be const\iteci in . a yery short time.,
The halting of the evacuation of the Ukrainian Jews from Roumania
into Old Roumania and the lifting of the embargo of Jewish refugees to
Roumania are traceable to the intervention of the Roumanian ambassador
in Washington, who reported to his government the unfavorable impression
created among American Jews as a result of that action, Solomon Suffrin,
a representative of Roumanian Jews in America, declared at the dedica-
tion of a Jewish orphan asylum in Bucharest.
The noted Zionist, Jacobus Kann, is reported to be convening a World
Congress of opposition Zionist groups. The object of the congress, which
will be held at the Ilague in March, will be the creation of a permanent
organization, in which shall be united all opposition elements. America,
which has been included in the invitation sent out by Kann, will be repre-
sented by the followers of the former American Zionist Administration,
now organized in the Palestine Development League.

The Lithuanian legation in London has issued charges against the Polish
government, alleging that in the elections to the Vilna Sejm the Polish
authorities resorted to violence and corruption and challenging the correct-
ness of the election results. The Jews in certain localities, the legation
claims, were forced to vote for the Vilna Sejm, in order to escape pogroms.
Those who refused to participate were threatened with arrest, confiscation
of property, destruction of their homes and in some cases even with evile
from the country.

The agenda of the approaching annual conference of the Polish Socialist
party includes the question of national rights for the Jews in Poland. There
appears to be three tendencies amongst the delegates. One section is said
to favor the granting of autonomy to the Polish Jews; another is said to
be in opposition, while th third tendency is believed to be in favor of post-
poning the discussion of this-question until some future date. The Austrian
Social Democrats have also placed the Jewish question on the program of
the next party conference.

With a Million Friends"
A business can be built in a year, a month, or even
a day. But an institution commands the noblest efforts
of a lifetime.
It is a remarkable tribute to the policies of this in-
stitution to have achieved in so short a time a name
like this. But the most precious asset that can accrue
to any store is the pleasant thoughts and expressions
of its patrons. This store has ever concerned itself
first, not with the amount of money it could amass, but
with the good will it ultimately built.
Further, we have centered our activities upon pro-
viding furniture that measured up to the highest stan-
dards. We have chosen the products of America's
finest factories, furniture made by Sligh, Karpen, Luce
and other makers whose names have been inseparably
associated with furniture of exceptional character.
The agreement signed last week by representatives of the Polish govern.
ment and of the Free City of Danzig provides that emigrants leaving Poland
for the United States and the Argentine he permitted to proceed abroad
only by way of Danzig. Both parties in the treaty were anxious to con-
centrate the full 100 per cent of the emigrant flood through the free port
but the Polish steamship companies objected on the ground that they could
not provide the necessary facilities, and that such an arrangement would
harm their interests in other places. They consented to handle 60 per cent
of the emigrants at Danzig.

The Ministerial Council is understood to be preparing the draft of a law
removing the restrictions against Jews in the territories that formerly be-
longed to Russia. It is confidently expected that the law will be acted upon
at the present session of the Polish Diet. Jewish representatives, delighted
with the promised relief, have communicated the gratitude of the Jewish
communities to the government. The Council of the Jewish Communities
at Lublin telegraphed to Premier Ponikowski declaring that the abolition
of restrictions means the beginning of the fulfillment of the clauses in the
constitution guaranteeing equal rights, and the institution of equal rights
and duties for all Polish citizens.

Deputy Isaac Greenbaum, in a statement to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, emphatically denies the allegations made by the Polish Jewish
Emigrant, accusing the Jewish emigration organization of diverting the
currents of Jewish emigration towards French ports and deriving personal
profit from their transactions. The Jewish Emigrant, he asserts, is a pub-
lication of no significance, backed by no institution. The Warsaw Emigrant
Committe, he adds, maintains absolutely no connections with the shipping
companies outside those involved in caring for the interests of the emigrants
entrusted to its care. The object of the Jewish Emigrant in issuing its
sensational accusations at this time seems to be to discredit the World Con-
ference of Emigration Organizations to be held in Paris.

The anti-Semitic London paper, Plain English, published by Lord Alfred
Douglas, known chiefly by the notoriety he achieved in the Oscar Wilde
case, has been forced to suspend publication owing to its inability to hold
the attention of the public and the exhaustion of its funds. About two
weeks ago Plain English appeared as defendant in a libel suit brought by
Sir Alfred Mond and his brother-in-law, Goetze, the sculptor. The suit was
brought in answer to the charge that the contract for the frescoes in the
Foreign Office, awarded to Goetze in 1917, had been obtained through the
influence of his brother-in-law. In addition both men were characterized
as generally undesirable aliens. The case was decided in favor of Sir Alfred
Mond' and Goetze, the paper being forced to pay heavy damages.
Settlement of the British Mandate for Palestine before the April session
of the Council of the League of Nations is confidently anticipated by the
State Department and leading Republican senators. Ab. Goldberg, repre-
senting the administrative committee of the Zionist Organization of Amer-
ica, is understood to have learned in Washington. The issue of the open
door in countries which have been entrusted by the League of Nations to
mandatory powers will come to a head before the Council of the League
of Nations re-assembles at Geneva on April 26, it is learned. It is also
understood that the Zionist Administration has been assured that America
is prepared to take some helpful action by way of assisting the Zionist
Organization to secure special confirmation of the mandate, if necessary,
although direct intervention is extremely difficult because America is not
a member of the league, it is explained.
You will find here also a complete showing of the
famous "Danersk" painted furniture, made in the

ture is not equalled in America today.
