If the British Government insists Sir Herbert Samuel will continue in office as High Commissioner of Palestine for another five years? announcement to this effect has been made privately by the High Commissioner, it is stated on good authority. The District of Samaria, beginning in April, will be included in the Northern district under the jurisdiction of Governor Symes, it has been announced.

A representative of the Jewish Colonization Association has left for Egypt to extend a welcome to Baron Edmend de Rothschild, who will probably visit Palestine within the next few weeks.
