Last April the Association received a telegram, followed by a letter, stating that a Jew named Rahamim Eidan had been killed by a Mussulman, who denied his guilt, although four persons were witnesses of the act. Several crimes of a similar nature having previously been committed with impunity, the local Alliance Committee applied for protection to the Governor -General, Izzet Pasha, as also to the Consuls of England, France, Italy, and Austria.
