20 THE JEWS IN RUSSIA AND POLAND el. Though surrounded on all sides by a string of towns and townlets with a dense Jewish population, the southwestern metropolis was guarded by a host of police watchdogs against the invasion of “ aliens.” Apart from the “ privileged” Jews who formed part of the permanent population, the police were forced to admit into the city Jewish visitors who came to Kiev for a few days to attend to their affairs. Yet, haunted by the fear lest these visitors might stay there too long, the police arranged oblavas, or raids, to hunt them down like stray dogs. About once a week, during the night, the police would raid certain hostelries in which the Jews were wont to stop, put those that were caught under arrest, and then expel them from the confines of the city. This additional heavy “ night work” called for a larger police staff, and to meet this in-creased expenditure, an annual sum of 15,000 rubles was appropriated— from the proceeds of the Jewish meat tax. This revenue, collected from the Jews for the purpose of maintaining the charitable and educational institutions of the Jewish communities, was now used to pay the police agents to enable them to hunt down these Jews and expel them in merciless fashion. To put it more plainly, the convict, after being sentenced to be hanged, was forced to buy the rope. The methods of the Russian inquisition gradually reached the top notch of efficiency. Even the “ Kievlanin” (“ The Kievi-an”), the anti- Semitic official organ of Kiev, was bound to confess on one occasion that “ in the course of the month of July ( of the year 1901) things have taken place in Kiev which are hardly conceivable.” As far as the general disabilities are concerned, the entire area of the Russian empire outside the Pale of Settlement,   C h a p t e r Home  | T O C  | I n d e x For use on stand- alone, non- institutional computers only.
