BRITISH ZIONISTS TO RAISE $500,000. The Zionist Organization of the United Kingdom has decided to issue an appeal for $500,000, as its portion of the fund which is needed by Zion ist Organization, to carry out its pro gram during the difficult transition period, pending the definite settlement of the political future of Palestine. The purposes of the new fund are two-fold: Firstly, to meet the needs of the Zionist Commission in Palestine for the social, educational, resettle ment and repatriation work. Until a larger and more powerful body can be aet up, the Zionist Commission will have to prepare the way for the large masses of Jewish immigrants who, it is anticipated, will flow into Palestine as soon as the country is open. Second ly, the Zionist Organization itself re quires funds for its political and or ganization activities. Emgration and information bureaus will be opened shortly in the various large Jewish centres in Poland, Russia, Galicia, and Roumania, so as to regulate and con trol, in accordance with plana now be. ing worked out, emigration from these centres .Special Palestine departments will beopened in London and in Cop enhagen to deal with the multifarious problems that will face the Zionist Organization immediately after the Peace Conference, A special Campaign Committee (consists of representatives of all the different branches of the Zionist Organization in the United Kingdom. POLISH-JEWISH DEPUTIES IN DICT POLAND BEFORE THE WORLD. London: (By I. J. P. B.) The best answer to the friends of Poland who have undertaken to defend the Polish pogromists and to deny the occurrence of any pogroms at all in Poland, is the memorandum which the Jewish depu ties of the Nationalist Wing have pre sented to Premier Paderewski. Ac cording to the Warsaw Jewish Mo ment, these deputies have in their memorandum enumerated many places where pogroms took place and describ ed the artoicities in those places. In the first part of .their memoran dum the deputies remind Premier Pad erewski that when he enterted upon his office he promised equality to the Jews. Instead of equality the Poles continued their massacrres upon Jews with renewed energy. They claim that special organization exists wnose duty it is to organize systematic po groms upon Jews. The memorandum then gives a list cities where pogroms have taken place at follows: Kaliscz, Bussck, Zhidlowa, Stopnitz, Velum, Lublin, Miechow, Slomnike, and many other cities. In the province of Kielsei soldiers also participated in the pogroms. In Kolbu sczowa and in Riscza and in other pla ces the Polish military command as sumed a very indifferent attitude to wards the pogroms, and wherever it claimed to have helped the Jews that help was Insignificant In the British army an anti-Semitic propaganda is being conducted, states the memorandum. Placards are being posted in the streets, in which Jews are publicly threatened with pogroms fa case the political ambitions of Po land will not be satisfied. If one ait tempts to tear these placards down he is immediately arrested. This proves that the officials in power are behind such threats. In Lodz, Lukov and Konscj, the po gromists, on the pretext of searching for hidden weapons and food, made raids upon Jewish homes. They did not however find anything illegal but they did accomplish their real motive they took away jewelry and money. The pogromists also did not spare the Jewish synagogues, which they defiled while not one Gentile business was touched. The memorandum then enumerates the lists of the cities where wnoiesale massacres occurred, such as Pinsk, Vilna ,Lida, and Pareczk, and the mas sacres on a smaller scale in Pruczany, WolkoviBk, in Eastern Galicia, at well as in Posen, where soldiers attacked the Jews. It is stated that Gen. nai ler's soldiers made pogroms In War saw, Novy-Dvor, Chelm, and Zakrot chin. Jews were also raided on fcoara trains, where they were whipped ana their beards torn off. The government, further states the memorandum, did nothing to scop alt these things. If it ever does issue an appeal, the pogromists regard it mere ly as dope to make the foreign coun tries believe that the Polish govern ment is against pogroms. The po gromists are convinced that they will not be punished for ill-treating Jews. They see this from the entire attitude of the government, from the official denials of pogroms on the one hand and the persecutions of the Jewish press for reporting pogroms, on the other hand. They also realize this from the fact that a Jew is punished for every petty accusation launched against him, without trial, while they, the pogromists, are going scot free. Jews have been placed outside the pale of the law in Poland. For mem the lynch law exists. Jews are also being dismissed from official positions, and they are being boycotted in commerce and industry. A special censorship for the Jewish press has been established in Lublin; and even in Warsaw and in Zhirardow. a Warsaw suburb, Jewish meetings where Yiddish is spoken are prohib ited. Jewish doctors are dismissed from hospitals and Jewish signs are being torn off from business nouses. Jews are being forced to keep theh businesses closed on Sunday. In many villages, resolutions are being adopted in which it is demanded that the Jews be expelled from the country. In conclusion the memorandum asks the Premier to answer them in what manner he intends to bring an end to the atrocities and crimes that are be ing daily committed against the Jews. n CZECHS IMITATING POLES IN TREATMENT OF JEWS.
