With the exception of the Socialist candidate, Julius Moses, not a single Jew is standing for election to the Reichstag on March 5th, on the list of any party.

A number of Jewish candidates do appear, however, on the lists of the Socialist and State Parties, for election to the Prussian Diet.

Dr. Hamburger and Professor Chajes are candidates for election to the Prussian Diet on the Socialist ticket, which carries the names of several Jews who have resigned from the Jewish Community as well. Professor Jundrelich, a Jewess; Margarete Edelheim, editor of the “C-V-Zeitung,” organ of the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith; and Karl Bamberg are candidates on the ticket of the State Party.
