The division between the Right and Left wings of the Jewish labor group in the Polish capital again assumed an acute character and led to street riots resulting in many injuries.

During a skirmish on Leszno Street, Wednesday afternoon, a great number of Jewish workers were wounded, Knives and clubs were used in the fight. Among those injured and taken to the Hospital are: Ben Zion Steinberg, Chaim Golombek, Solomon Sarne, and Joseph Adamczyk. An interesting feature of the occurrence was the fact that those injured refused to disclose to the police the names of their assailants.
