Protests From United States Jews
Basis for American Xote.
WASHINGTON", Aug. 5. The inten
tion of the American Government to
make representations to the Balkan
peace conference had been so carefully
guarded that it was not generally
known in official circles that a note
had been dispatched to Bucharest.
It is known, however, that the Ad
ministration had been receiving vigor
ous protests from Jews from all over
the United States against the treat
ment of people of their religion in
Roumania. The State Department was
advised that Roumanian Jews were be
ing deprived of civil rights guaranteed
them under the treaty of Berlin.
This, it is said, influenced the Ad
ministration to ask that a guarantee
nf religious liberty be included In the
proposed treaty of Bucharest.
