Laws governing the economy grew steadily more oppressive. No Jews was to get license to sell tobacco. The Jewish saloon keepers found difficulty in having their licenses renewed notwithstanding the intervention of the Jewish members of the Sejm (parliament). In addition, the non-Jewish element made serious attempts to establish businesses. The famous slogan "Swoj do swego'' (Each to his kind) was much exploited. The clergy, too, took active part in this campaign. The existing laws prohibiting stores from doing business on Sunday were frequently circumvented. The Jewish merchant would find a way to bring the customer into ...
