(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The death of Israel Zangwill is deeply mourned here by the Jewish community. The Jewish press devoted long articles eulogizing the late Jewish patriot, author and leader. “A Jewish giant has fallen; the greatest loss after the death of Nordau, has been suffered,” the Jewish papers here declared.

The Club of Jewish Deputies in the Polish Sejm has despatched a message of condolence to Mrs. Zangwill.

It was stated here that Zangwill’s parents emigrated to London from Ryboniszki, a small village in Lettland.
