Fairs in Warsaw District Arranged for Saturdays

Download PDF for this date

Fairs in the districts of Warsaw are arranged to take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays, according to a schedule published by the Wojewoda, the governor of the Warsaw district.

Business is done in the smaller cities mainly on fair days as it affords the merchants a chance to sell their merchandise on the days when the peasants gather from the neighboring villages.

The arranging of one of the two fair days for Saturday, when the Jewish stores are usually closed is considered to be harmful to the Jewish merchants.

A delegation consisting of Senator Trusker and Deputy Wislicki called on the Minister of Interior, Habner, protesting against the arrangements of the district governor.

The Minister of Interior promised the delegation to reconsider the question of the fair day.
