Download PDF for this date

Populaire, leading French Socialist paper, today demanded the resignation of Governor General Jules Carde of Algeria on the ground that he was chiefly responsible for the tragic pogrom in Constantine.

Yesterday Populaire charged the government with having deliberately suppressed the news of the riots, alleging they broke out on Thursday, instead of Saturday night, as the government claimed.
