(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Serious danger of the extension of anti-Jewish disorders, which began several days ago in Iamail, Bessarabia, to other parts of the province is threatening, according to a despatch from Rounania to the “Neues Wiener Tageblatt.”

Anti-Semitic agitators find fertile soil in view of the bad crop which has affected the peasantry in the province.

A large part of Bessarabia is in danger of a famine, owing to the failure of the harvest and the local social workers are in a state of anxiety. The failure of the harvest has affected five districts. Ackermann, Kahul and Ismail are severely affected and Kishineff and Bender less several.
