(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Anti-Jewish excesses took place yesterday on the railway line Targul-Ocna-Odgut-Bancs.

Hooligans entered the trains and attacked Jewish passengers. Isaac Stern, Jancu Silberstein and Joseph Hershkowitz were seriously injured. The railway personnel as well as the police remained passive. At the station Strasheni, near Kishineff, Cuzists attacked the Jewish passengers.
