(Jewish Telegraphic Agency.) The long expected report «»f lie* etlieinl Inquiry Commission cm • In* Jaffa riots In st Mny was pifhlishcd here by iln* Government yesterday. It declares directly that the demonstra tion on May Ist of Jewish Cominun ists was tla* ('Muse of tlie Arab nt l-o-ks on Jaffa and on tin* Jewish coi • •nisis and asserts Mint tlie policy of csinhltshing the Jewish National Homo in I’alestino is in part tin* cause of tin* disoontont prevailing among A rails. The Commission sat in Jaffa for several months collecting and com piling evidence. Hundreds of wit* nesses were heard and investigators were despatched to various pares of the country to gather information. The report is signed by Sir Thomas lln.v croft, the Chief Legal Adviser of tin* Palestinian, administration, Mr. Luke, "ho was Assistant Governor of Je lusalem, and Captain Knihhs of tin* Australian, army. The report, when forwarded to tin* British Government (.flices here, was aeeonipanied by a covering letter from Sir Herbert Sam uel. who states that measures have I icon taken to improve conditions in il.c police force and that owing to tin* Arab complaint that they have no body corresponding to the Zionist Commission, a Committee of Arab notables has been formed. In publish ing the report, Winston Churchill, the British Colonial Secretary, adds that the report is “ably compiled, lucid and well reasoned. Lessons." he says, "learned in the Jaffa disturlmnces will rule the action of the police and military in handling future* affairs of a. similar nature.” The report begins by describing the new immigrants who have been arrlv. lag In Palestine, and asserts that these i re affected by European labor politics and habits. "The Arab discontent with Zionism reached its climax during tin* demonstration, when Bolshevik Jews incited workers to civil war." Here follows a detailed discussion of the Jewish labor organirjitions—Aelidm Hunvoduh ami "Mops,” the Jewish Communist Party. It tells of a “Mops’ demonstration last November, when Jewish workingmen who refused to strike, were attaeked by the Commun ists. On that occasion, tin* police »«»'- rested several of die "Mbps” and two were convicted. Tin* "Mops” head quarters were raided and considerable quantities of communist literature seized. The report now details tin* course of events. On the «eve of Mayday Jews were arrested for distributing pro (lmitations which carried Instructions written in I lei rcw. Yiddish and Ara bic, some of which were. "Long Live tin* Civil War.” "Long Live Soviet Russia,” "Long Live tlie Palestinian Communist Party.” "Down with the Itritish and French Bayonets,” etc. On May Ist. a permitted demonstra tion of the Aelidut Ilanvodah took place in Tel-Aviv. The "Mops” dem onstration was prohibited. Neverthe less, it wiis held, and collisions took place between tin* adherents of both parties. Tile police lost control of tile situa tion altogether. Troops with armored cars were called in to quell the riot ers. The police was inefficient. Hither it was unable to cope with Hie tumult, or it laid been infected with racial passion and was unwilling to stem the raid of its own people. The Gov ernor of Jaffa, when informed that there was trouble at the Immigrants House which quartered several hun dred newly arrived Jewish immi grants, sent several officers to investi gate Tt was established that, the police tired at the gate, likewise that two bombs were thrown from the house and fell in the street. The Rev. Martin, an Englishman, states that the police broke thru the door of the Clml litzim House and lead tin* mob into the courtyard. Men seeking refuge were beaten to death, while several ocher.* were killed by shots. One woman was killed and many others roughly handled. An Arab policeman attempted to violate women. He was later convicted and sentenced to thir teen years imprisonment. Continuing with a report s r.n May 2nd. we read instances of Jewish outrages against Arabs. It is charged that Col. Margolin, formerly Commander of one of the Jewish Bat in Hons, who on that day organized a Jewish Defence Corps of Fx-Legion ROMANIAN WAR MINISTER PROMISES TO IMPROVE CONDITION OF JEWISH REFUGEES. Commission to I .cave Jewish Emi grants in I’eure on Friday ami Sat urday. (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) Bucharest A delegation of Jewish communal workers watted on the H°u iimnian War Minister and put In-fore him the serious condition of Jewish refugees in Bessarabia and the mis- Irefitment they receive at the hands <.f petty oll'a ials. They showed him a. copy of a proclamtion that was lielng iisiml as an excuse for interning the refugees in Jtessarnhia. The Minister promised to adopt ininnslinte remedial measures and to give orders for the recall of the proclamation. The Itouuiailian Commission that is charged with the task of carrying out the evacuation of Jewish refugees from the country has acted favorably tin the suggestion of Kahlii Zlerelsohn that the Jews should not lie disturbed on Friday and Saturday. At the meet ing at which tills decision was ar rived at were prest‘l ir representatives of the General Staff, of the police and of Jewish organizations. Several Jew ish conimur.nl workers were given iiicinlicrship on the commission. It wa*- decided to build large barracks in Bucharest to serve as temporary head quarters for the refugees. The War Minister appointed Chief Italihi Xeinhrower ns a member of the Commission to regulate the activities of the chaplains of the Roumanian army. " j COUNT BERNSTORF IN LIBE LSUIT ON ACCOUNT OF JEWS. (Jewish Telegraphic Ageucy) tteriin—Count llcriiKtorf. ex-CJornuin Ambassador to the Called Stares. has l>(H*onio involved in a liliel soil on nc count of Jiis defence of Jews in Ills new pni»cr published in Munich. Son** time ago. Count Ilernstorf. attacked J)r. Cieiiitx, editor of tin* Munich "Xeiie Nachricliten,” for his anti-semi, tiara, saying of rlie editor that lie was a chauvinist ami possessed of fanatical fear. (Jerlltz countered with accusing Hernstorf of conducting dishonest bus iness affairs. The ex-Ambassador thereupon sued the editor for libel and now tin* Munich High Court entered a verdict against CJerlirz and sentenced him to pay a huge lino. Hires, lunl. iii so doing. acted distinct ly contrary to an arrangement with (Jon. Deciles. The A rails then com plained that Jews had dressed them selves in the clothes of British sol diers. After the riots, the Government caused the arrest of th<> members of the "Mops” party. Fifteen of tlic.e who were non-Palestinian Jews were deported. Tlie Commission's findings now deal with tin* attacks on l’etaeh Tikvuli. Hehovoth and Chedern. Ii conies to tin* conclusion tlmt these disturbances also were caused by tlie "Mops." clashing with the Acinint Maavodahj in Telaviv. That Bolshevik demon stration. it affirms, was a spark-light ing tin* explosive Arab discontent and i precipitating the outbreak. The report, denies Jewish statements that Zionism is not responsible for the anti-Jewisli feeling prevalent in Palestine. Pis- 1 content with the (Joverninent. it says, is due partly to the policy of tluit policy, and partly to the manner in which this policy lias been interpreted by its advocates outside the Govern ment'. The administration is suspect ed. of being under Zionist influence and that suspicion originates in the Government’s frequent association with Zionists. Being that the disturbances were provoked by the "Mops” demonstra tion, and considering Arab feeling, the Commission deems it unwise to allow a small detested body of Coin munists to conduct their propaganda. The Arabs turned the quarrel between two Jewish labor parties into a racii.il conflict. They, tin* Arabs, behaved savagely. The Jews retaliated with equal savagery, tlio they bud much to levenge. Tile Commission, in con clusion. is convinced that the Jewish charges that the outbreak was prin cipally arranged by Arabs is unfound ed and in support of this conclusion, it declares that the raids on the Jew ish agricultural .colonics were caused by. and did not occur until after, the circulation of a report that Jews wore killing Arabs in Jaffa.

Ephriam Moses Lillen, a Herbraic Artist By ISRAEL ZANGWILL. < Copyrighted by Jew Mi Correspoinl flier Hurrau, JtHM.) Ephraim Moses I.iliru is one of those rare masters who hy contributing jiot to galleries hut to hooks, magazines ami bookplates has hrought art nrai ir to every day life. Ite-tricting liim , self to black-and-white' lie has mini' mised the dilTcre*iie*e* hetween his orig i inaI toueh and its medianienl re*pro- j diiction, so that a I.iliru postcard has | more value than many a pretentious ( oil-painting. Indeed it was thru a postcard that I lirst liecame acquaint ed with his genius. It was the design dedicated to the Fifth Zionist Congress at Hash*. At the first glimpse it was inipos i hible not to think of Aubrey Heards ley. The same black-and-white effects as in tin* English artist, the same in stinct for the decorative, the same singing lines t the same contrast of masses, tin* same poetry of space. The same, hut how differently applied! F«»r what in Heardsley was frequently used to express decadence here serv ed to promote renaissance. 1 felt as when I hear the epigrammatic turns of Oscar Wilde in the mouth of Ches terton, that militant Christian, who. with no less wit than the notorious immornlist. has harnessed paradox and fantasy to the chariot of orth odoxy. And when I came to know Eilien in the flesh, as I had known poor Heardsley. I was struck by the same contrast l>6twecn the healthy sturdy product or the Calician (Jhetto. and the consumptive - looking Hrighlonian. doomed to die at Mentone at the age of twenty-six. It throws a curious light upon the ingenious -hypotheses that seek to explain artists by tlieir milieu, that of the two young men driven by their genius to express them, selves with artificial elegance, the one was l»orn in a great ugly Itrifish sea side resort, and the 'Other in an at mosphere of salt and petroleum In the dismal industrial rownlet of Drolio hyez, amid the monotonous steppes to which the gaunt Carpathians slope. Whether Heardsley hud any influ ence upon the efflorescence—of Eilien I do not know. The English designer was horn in is"!!—only two years lie fore Iiilien. and marvellously precoc ious tho he was. his work could scarcely have had time to peiitrate to Cracow in whose arc academy Eilien made his lirst studies, tho possibly, if i nly thru imitators, it may have reach »•«: Munich or Hcrlin. to which the Calician youth subsequently tuigra*- cd. Or perhaps both artists learnt from the Japanese. In any case, the self-inspiration of Eilien is the dom inant fact of his development. A lad.

The* factors of j genius have never yet been fixed hy any eugenic* formula. tho it may per haps account a little* for Eilien that his far her was a turner, accustomed in | Ids luipihler function to shape and plane reality.

To the President of the United States, Washington, D. C. Mr. President: The historical moment now approaching in Washington has once again stirred in Jewish hearts the desire to seek peace and pursue it. The Order over which I have the honor to preside and all its members representing nearly one hundred thousand Jewish families, will watch with anxious hearts the progress which will be made in carrying out the noble aims which inspired you to call the Conference for Limitation of Aramaments. We extend to you our hopes and prayers that through the Conference a means may be found to bring within our lifetime the day when swords shall be beaten into plowshares and peace shall reign supreme upon earth. Wars anti the consequences of wars have weighed more heav ily upon the Jews in all lands than they have upon those of other faiths. In common with those of other creeds they have given their all to the lands under whose protecting flags they live. Patriotism, heroism and self-sacrifice, faith and devotion have been char acteristic of the Jewish people of every land in the same degree as it has been characteristic’of citizens of other faiths. The poison ous aftermath of war—its hatreds and passions, its miseries, mur der and lies, have been visited upon them in far greater measure. A people with this historical background has a long emotional memory and through the centuries has prayed with fervent hearts for the dawn of that day which the present Conference seems to portend. May God be with you in your deliberations and guide you. Very respectfully, ADOLF KRAUS, President, I/O. It. B.
