(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Jassy Chamber of Commerce, which recently elected Senator Elijah Mendelsohn to the Roumanian Senate, was dissolved by an order of the Roumanian government.

It was stated that the Chamber was dissolved for the purpose of effecting the election to the Senate of Mr. Czerkez, the candidate of Premier Averescu.

A temporary committee to reorganize the Chamber was appointed. Several Jews are on the committee.

At the time that Mendelsohn was elected, Averescu stated that the Chamber of Commerce would be dissolved. Mendelsohn was later unseated by a vote in the Senate.
