Complete calm prevails in Harbin and the other Chinese centres where there are Jewish immigrants and transmigrants, the head office of the Jewish Immigration Organisation Hicem (Hias-Ica-Emigdirekt) states, quoting a report which it has received from its Harbin office, in connection with the present occurrences in Manchuria, which it circulates for the purpose of tranquillising people worried over the fate of their relatives, immigrants, or transmigrants, who happen to be now in China.

Communication with Japan is normal, the report explains; express trains from Siberia and Vladivos tock run as usual, and mail is forwarded regularly from the Chinese or Japanese ports.
