The high water mark of anti-Semitism in Hungary has definitely passed, according to the “Pester Lloyd,” leading newspaper here. The paper, after quoting several statements on the harm done to the country by anti-Semitism by members of the Government and other leading political personages, says:

“The vulgar spirit of anti-Semitism is coming to an end. If it once burnt as a powerful flame, there is today only a spark of it left here and there, glimmering very feebly. It reminds us of the phrase “Tout passe, tout casse, tout lasse.” There is a new spirit abroad in our country, and there is no one in Hungary who will shed a tear at the passing of the old and dark period. The day of anti-Semitic agitation has gone, anti-Semitism is broken and the whole country is tired of it and glad to get rid of it, the paper declares.
