Any person who plays a phonograph or other music in the city of Jerusalem to the annoyance of the public is liable to prosecution under the provisions of Article 260 of the Ottoman Penal Code, which makes it an offense to make a noise in a manner to take away the comfort of the people. This was stated here in a public notice issued by Major Keith-Roach. Deputy District Commissioner for Jerusalem.
