The Italian shipping companies have begun to feel a falling off in the numbers of passengers to Palestine owing to the competition of Roumania. Large numbers of Chaluzim having of late been passing via Roumania, the Italian Government, with a view to re-attracting the Palestine immigrants to pass through Trieste, intends shortly to reduce the quarantine period from two weeks to three days, on condition that these three days shall be spent by the immigrants in Trieste and not in Vienna as previously.
Owing to the improvement in the exchange of the lira, it is believed there will be a reduction in the fares from Trieste to Palestine.
