August 15, 1930
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A meeting of kosher butchers of Greater New York to protest against the plan of Commissioner of Markets Dwyer whereby all kosher butchers would be required to have licenses will be held on Sunday afternoon in Clinton Hall, Manhattan. The butchers believe that instead of doing away with graft, this plan would make the situation even worse.

Commissioner of Accounts Higgins, who is conducting the investigation into the charges of graft in Markets Department, declared on Wednesday that he would endeavor to obtain immunity from prosecution for those kosher butchers who are now afraid to testify about graft which they gave to Markets Department supervisors, after the latter had accused them of selling non-kosher meat for kosher.
