(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The split between the Jewish parties in Poland was manifested at the last meeting of the Council of the Warsaw Kehillah held here yesterday.

At that meeting Mr. Herlich, a delegate representing the labor party, Bund, introduced a motion urging the Kehillah council to ask of the Polish government that it grant amnesty to all political prisoners in Poland. This motion was opposed by Joshua Gottlieb, Zionist delegate, who declared that the asking of amnesty is outside of the jurisdiction of the Council. If the Council is to adopt such a resolution, he demanded that the resolution also ask that the Zionists arrested in Russia be given their freedom. The motion was also opposed by Rabbi Lewin, representative of the Agudah, and was defeated by a large majority.
