BASLE, Aug. 16. - At the meeting of the Zionist Congress today messages sympathizing with the Zionist movement were read from all parts of the world. Herr Marmorek (Vienna) afterwards read the general report, showing the progress made since the last congress.
Herr Kokesch (Vienna) read a report on the financial position of the movement, in wich he states that the number of contributing members now exceeded 100,000. The receipts amounted to 158.212f. and the expenses to 142,754f. The £250,000 which were required for the founding of the proposed Colonial Bank had been oversubscribed.
Professor Gottheil (New York) next described to the congress the great progress made by Zionism in North America. In the debate wich ensued Herr Werner (Vienna) urged that what the Zionist required was not so much a Turkish charter as a publicly recognized and legal position guaranteed by the great Powers.
