Zionists Victorious in Kehillah Elections in Poland

The first returns of the Kehillah elections which took place in the provinces of Congress Poland seem to indicate that the national Jewish elements have won a victory in spite of the tremendous propaganda carried on by the orthodox Agud##rt Israel Party. Even towns with an orthodox and fanatical population elected to the Kehillah not less than 50% Zionists or Mizrachists. In some towns Jewish socialists, belonging to the Bund or left Poale Zion, were elected. The Assimilationist Party was completely defeated.
