(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An anti-Semitic demonstration of 200 students through the principal streets of Bucharest assumed such threatening proportions yesterday that the police took measures to disperse the crowd.

A group of anti-Semitic students attacked Dr. Greenberg, a Jewish physisian of Braila, and beat him with clubs.

While marching through the streets, they gathered numbers. At Roschioridevede they insulted the Jewish inhabitants.

The “Curierul Israelite,” Roumanian Jewish newspaper, today criticizes the Roumanian government in connection with the recent attacks on Jews in Roumanian trains. “What has happened to the circular issued by the government to the railway officials, instructing them to prevent disturbances on the trains?” the paper asks, urging the government to take measures to prevent such disturbances and to punish the guilty ones.

Much excitement is evident in Roumanian public opinion in connection with the forthcoming congress of the Cuzists which will be held in Jassy. It is expected that the Congress will witness a revolt against Alexander Cuza. It is stated that although Cuza may remain president of the Christian League, he will have to pledge himself to abandon his rapprochement policy toward the Averescu government and resign his actual leadership to Zelea Codrianu, another of the rabid anti-Semites.
