Download PDF for this date

A Jewish monument bearing the names of the contributors and founders of the proposed Chicago million dollar colony in Palestine, will be erected in the Chicago City Hall, according to the resolution adopted by the Zionist Organization here.

The Jewish bankers here have decided to help raise the necessary fund for this colony by sending to their depositors, a circular asking them to subscribe $5,00 each.
