(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Further investigation into the Hungarian counterfeiting plot seems to point to the fact that not only Hungarian anti-Semites, but the anti-Semites in other countries were involved in the conspiracy.

French agents expressed the suspicion that the anti-Semitic monarchistic leaders of Vienna are also involved in the plot.

Deputy Frank Ulain and Mr. Daner, to whom Mr. Raba was assigned as counsel, refused to accept him as their attorney, declaring that Raba is not a “pure Hungarian” but is a converted Jew.

The oppositional group within the parliament submitted to Premier Bethlen a memorandum protesting against the threats made by the anti-Semitic press in connection with the discovery of the counterfeiting plot. The memorandum also protests against the suspension of publication of the liberal paper “Vilag.”
