(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An attempt to frame a ritual murder accusation against the Jewish population of Breslau is now occupying the attention of the Breslau police authorities.

Some time ago two children whose fathers are workingmen, were found murdered. Their bodies were cut to pieces. The efforts of the police to find the perpetrator of the crime have not yet been successful.

Leaders of anti-Semitic organizations in Breslau endeavored to spread rumors throughout the city that the children were killed by the Jews for ritual purposes. Police authorities are now endeavoring to arrest the originators of the agitation.
