Maurice Samuel, Jewish novelist and Zionist orator, returned to this country from Palestine on Tuesday on the Majestic.

Mr. Samuel was an eye witness to the attacks upon the Jewish population of Palestine by the Arabs, and served as a special correspondent of the Jewish Teelgraphic Agency. Following the riots, he toured the country with Col. Frederick H. Kisch, member of the Palestine Zionist Executive, and described the situation in a number of despatches which appeared in the Jewish Daily Bulletin.
