See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A motion to hold a debate on the subject of ritual murder accusations was defeated in the Bavarian Diet by a majority vote on Friday.

The motion was introduced by the Hitler group which sought to strike out of the item of salary for Minister of Religions Goldenberger because he issued a statement during the Manauritual murder agitation in which he declared that “the Jews were a part of the German nation” and that the ritual murder tale has no basis in fact.
