Signund Bosel, the wealthiest Jew, and also said to be the wealthiest man in Austria, who recently announced that he had under-written the budget of the University of Vienna, came near losing his life as a result of a Hakenkreuzlers’ plot which the police uncovered a few hours before the time planned for its fruition.

The police, hearing of the plot, made a house to house canvass and found a number of weapons which the Hakenkreuzlers had planned to use in the attack upon Bosel. One of the conspirators was arrested.
