(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Anti-Jewish excesses occurred in Ismail, Bessarabia, states a report from Kishineff published today by the “Pester Lloyd.”

The synagogue of Ismail was demolished and several scores of Jewish inhabitants were injured when a mob of peasants who gathered for the fair started an anti-Jewish demonstration.

The agitation was started by an assistant notary public named Solovenko, who delivered an inciting speech to the assembled peasantry, teiling them that it was Jews who are responsible for the bad economic situation in Roumania and for the poverty of the peasantry.


Dr. Chaim Weizmann will arrive in America in time to attend the first meeting of the Zionist National Executive Committee to be held at the Pennsylvania Hotel, New York, on October 14, according to an announcement made by Louis Lipsky, president of the Zionist Organization of America.

The meeting of the Executive Committee will probably be the occasion for the first official discussion of the plans of the Jewish Agency, as far as the Zionist view of the matter is concerned. Dr. Weizmann is coming here primarily in the interest of preliminary planning for the organization of the Jewish Agency.

Elihu D. Stone, Assistant United States Attorney General for Boston, chairman of the Executive Committee, will preside at the Executive Committee meeting.
