Martial law, which was declared in Warsaw following the assassination of President Narutowicz, will be abolished if Poland continues as quiet as it has been during the last fortnight, authorities announce.

Pronounced feeling against the Jews continues unabated and the nationalist press, as a rule, condones the anti-Semitic agitation. Thus, the “Dwa Grosze” refers to the recent attacks on Jews in the district of Posen and to the boycott against Jews in Lemberg as “a wholesome struggle for the elimination of the Jew”.

A letter threatening the Jews against continuing “their present policy” has been addressed by the Rozwoj party to the Jewish members of the Sejm, the letter having been sent to Deputy Apolinary Hartglass, in care of the Jewish Sejm Club.

A typical instance of how some Nationalist judges look upon the anti-Jewish agitation was furnished yesterday in a Civil Magistrate’s Court when Idel Fuks was arraigned and sentenced to a week’s imprisonment for removing a placard of the Rozwoj party urging violations on the Jews. The magistrate declared that the Jew had shown a spirit of intolerance towards Poland in removing the placard.
