Twenty-seven families of Jewish peasants in Caucasia, numbering 108 souls, have left their colony for an adjoining region. They declare that they were compelled to leave because where they were they did not receive enough land, nor did they have enough cattle or agricultural implements. All complaints to the authorities were ignored, they say.

The Central Executive Committee of Daghestan has ordered the Public Prosecutor to take proceedings against the officials, who by their negligence, have caused the Jewish peasants to leave the land given them. The government is also arranging that the peasants should be able to return to their places, and obtain more land and better facilities.
