The Palestine representative of the Electric Corporation makes no distinction between Jews and non-Jews, but employment of labor is purely a business matter, declared Mr. Shearer, director of the London branch of the Jerusalem Electric Corporation to a representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. The company works closely with the Jewish people in England, he added.

The Jerusalem Electric Corporation cannot see its way to cooperate with the Ruttenberg Electric Corporation which is a distinct and separate undertaking. It is expected that the work will be concluded by the end of the year when power and light will be available within a 20 kilometer radius from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
