(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The anti-Jewish excesses which occurred last week in Ismail, Bessarabia, were not of a serious character, states an official government communique issued here.

The events are described as an incident of minor importance. Several drunken peasants broke into the synagogue, attempting to rob the synagogue of valuables. They were, however, halted by other peasants and by the intervention of the police.
