Warsaw (Nov. 18)
Agudath Israel and Labor Representatives Abstain (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)
The conference of the representatives of national minorities, including the leaders of the Jewish parties, continued all day yesterday, deliberating on the method of forming a bloc of the national minorities at the forthcoming parliamentary elections.
Representatives of the Germans, Ukrainians, White Russians and Lithuanians are participating in the deliberations. The difference between the other national minorities and the Jewish minority lies in the fact that while the other minorities are united among themselves, including the socialists, the conference is attended by representatives of only the Jewish bourgeois parties, with the exception of the Orthodox Agudath Israel. The Jewish labor parties are not represented.
The attack on Deputy Gruenbaum by three unknown men on the night preceding the opening of the conference continues to hold attention. Several high officials have called on Gruenbaum to express their sympathy.
The Warsaw chief of police suspended the policeman who permitted Gruenbaum’s assailants to escape. The entire Polish press in commenting upon the incident condemns the method of terror. Gruenbaum is said to be receiving hundreds of letters of sympathy.
