Two hundred thousand persons joined a demonstration organized by anti-Semitic leaders here, in memory of Karl Lueger, one of the pioneers of the anti-Semitic movement in Europe.

The demonstration took place on the occasion of the unveiling yesterday of a bronze statue to Lueger, who was notorious for his anti-Semitic propaganda during his mayorality of Vienna from 1892 to 1910.
