(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An anti-Jewish boycott agitation has been started in Upper Silesia, threatening six thousand Jewish peddlers with economic ruin.

Pamphlets have been circulated, advocating that Poles and Germans should not make purchases from Jewish peddlers. The literature circulated by an anti-Semitic merchans committee, declares that signs should be posted on the houses, warning Jewish peddlers not to enter under the penalty of being flogged.
