The attitude of the Club of Jewish Deputies towards the new Polish cabinet formed under the leadership of Wincenty Witos, leader of the Polish Peasants’ Party “Piast”, has not yet been defined, although it was reported that the new Premier has attempted to draw the Club into his parliamentary combination.

Jewish political circles as well as the man on the street felt greatly relieved when they learned that Ladislaus Grabski, the former Prime and Finance Minister, who was entrusted with the task of forming the new government, has failed in his mission. The Jewish population feared that in case Grabski succeeded in forming a new government his former financial and economic policy, which proved detrimental to the interests of the Republic and which was particularly directed against the economic interests of the Jewish population, would be renewed.
