S'kirinut, forwarded a reply to day to I In* club of Jewish Sejm Dep iilii% regarding fils interpretation of the men nine of the French expression "domicile," \vhh*h has hoen the cause of dispute lietween the Polish govern inent and the Jewish Sejm Deputies| lor some time. This expression is used in the tex; of tin* minority clause, iu which P‘»l and pl«*dßCd ln*rself to recognize as citi zeus all inliahitants who iiad their "domicile” .in Poland on tin* day when the treaty was signed. That meant that all who found themselves in Pol and on ilia l day automat hat lly became Polish «*it i/.ens unless, iu I lie course of the next two years, they availed taem. selves of their prlvlleßC of renouncing their Polish citizenship. The polish government now declares that tills clause did not apply to the tens of thousands of .lews of various parts of the former Jtussian Empire who had M 1 h*ii residing iu Poland for years, ind hits judged these .lews as aliens. The Jewish deputies indicated that Pol and’s manner of handling the question was a direct reversal of the obliga tions Poland undertook in subscribing to the international minority clause. A dispute then licgan as to the na'an. iiig of the word "domicile.’’ The Jew ish deputies argued that "domicile” means dwelling place, and therefore the aforementioned .lews automatical ly became Polish citizens. Oil the eth er hand, the government argued that "domicile’’ means permanent dwelling and despite tin* fact that all these .lews have lived hi Poland for score* or years, their permanent pthee of res hlcncc was hot Poland. Now. the Polish Minisit*.* of Foreign Affairs, lias submitted to tie* Jewish deputies the explanation that iu id** opinion "domicile" means a ncrmaiient residence.

The Jews explain their sur. vivnl by the fact that they are a chosen people.

Mr. Samuel's article is written as a reply to a contribution by James Jay Kami in the August number which de fended the attitude of the* Pedes to wards Jews. Mr. Samuel writes con vincingly 1 locuuse he adduces estab lished fact* nnd undisputed figures to controvert statements made by Mr. •*fturfftir reply, for Instance, te* a passae in Mr. Kami's article which says that the rc|w>rt iif tin* Morgen tlmii Mission shows that instiim-es of vviolem-e to the Jew were rare, the Jewish contributor who helped draw the Morgentlmu report gives details of the many massacres which it recounts.

Jewish Bolshevism or Jewish commercial tendencies, form a correct or just basis for tin* hatred and per secution of Jews liy the Poles. .Mr. Agranski’s Artirle. Mr. Agranski's article deals gener ally with the difficulties the Zionists have to fail* in tlieir problem of re construction in Palestine, and par ticularly with the causes of Arab un rest which*- he maintains, is based "on a misconception of the Zionist aims mil I*olllll Im* overcome.” He shows that the good-natured. uneducated Arab is being used as a dupe by Arab politicians, and by members of tin* landed class oivotTendls. but that the movement against tbe Zionists has lit tle hold on the Arab ]>ensanr masses. Mr. Agranski's proposition is that •Had tile Zionists lieen in a position to give free play to their powers, and given a stable form of ministration i there would Ik> no more hostility against Zionists nnd Zionism." The pence that could thus In* pro cured awaits two tilings: First, rntfli cation of the British Mandate for Pal. ostine by the league of Nations: and secondly, a successful Keren Hayesod which would make possible to ex | plot tat ion of the liutimil resources of the country, the Introduction of tliou | sands of Immigrants, tin* creation of many indispensable institutions and the • prosecution in general of Zionist activities. Putting bis argument in a nutshell, he says in a concluding sen tence. "They (tbe Zionists) want tbe Mandate to be ratified, tbe Keren Hayesod to succeed, and ns a result of tbe two, tlie Arabs to be recon ciled.” Fancy boxes covered with shells, and inscribed "A Present from Margate.” laid tbe foundation to the fortune of Sir Marcus Samuel, the oil magna.e. * who* lias just retired.
