Riga (Jul. 14)
A charge of blasphemy has been made against Mrs. H. Bendar, widow of the late Jewish scholar who was the author of “Jesus of Nazareth,” for having published the work all copies of which have been confiscated. Mrs. Bendar faces imprisonment. The “Social Democrat,” organ of the Socialists, in an article criticizing the arrest of Mrs. Bendar by the prosecuting attorney, points out that it is ridiculous to bring action against the authors of scientific works on religious subjects.
