Ninety per cent of the Jews entitled to vote in Kowno, and fully 100% of those in the provinces, went to the polls in the new Parliamentary elections just concluded.

It is expected that the count will show six or seven Jewish deputies elected, in addition to three representatives of other minority nationalities. Leading Jews, while gratified over the heavy vote cast, fear a repetition of the election maneuver by means of which Jewish and other minority deputies elected to the last Sejm were disqualified by the General Board of Elections.
