Warsaw —Startling revolutions which will in nil likelihood not remain un answered for a long time, are made by the “Jewish Emigrant.’* an organ which supplies information to emigrants, to the effect that Jewish emigration or ganizations' are deriving personal prolit by manipulating Jewish emigration and directing it to French ports and Fench bottoms. What are purported to be proof of the allegations re contained in a leader In the “Emigrant,” showing that the Executive of the World Relief Con ference at Paris, had sent a confidential circulation to various Jewish emigra tion societies suggesting that the emi grants be directed to embark from French ports and on French ships, on the pretext that immigrants arriving lon French ships experience less diff iculty in being admitted to American I ports than others. ! It is also alleged that four out of the nine organizations invited by the IICA (Jewish Colonization Association) I to send representatives to a conference 'to be held in Paris on January l(»th have their headquarters in that city, j These organizations are besides the ICA, the World Relief Executive, the j Alliance Israelite Cniverselle. the Cen tral Immigration Committee of War- I saw which is said'’to be a brunch ol' I the ICA in Paris- It is also hold to bo n significant fact that the initiators of the conference are I chiefly leaders of the Alliance who, it is reported, are the principal stockholders in the French steamship companies on i whose ships they proposed that the Jewish emigrants he carried. The leading article does not confine itself to France alone hut shows the 'practice of profiteering by emigration is a widely extended practice and that a number of German Jewish leaders have also been urging that Jewish emi gration should clear through German ports and on German ships. As a remedy to what is characterized as a scandalous situation, this journal proposes that Koumania he given up as a trans-emigration country, that emi gration should in the main he concen trated at German ports and that the emigration movement as a whole he de livered of its !>enefactors who, under the cloak of philanthropy, tratlic with tin* unfortunate emigrants.
