Senate [excerpt]

     Mr. KEARNS presented a resolution adopted by the city council of Salt Lake City, Utah, expressing sympathy at the death of the late President William McKinley, and favoring the suppression of anarchy; which was read, and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, as follows:

A RESOLUTION.

     Whereas the spirit of anarchy has inspired assassination, and William McKinley, President of the United States, has been laid low as its victim; and
     Whereas in his cruel murder the nation has been plunged into the most profound grief and mourning; and
     Whereas this municipality shares in common with all other portions of the Union the consequence of this calamity, and in the general esteem for the noble character, great ability, and blameless life of our departed Chief Executive: Therefore, be it
     Resolved, by the city council of Salt Lake City, That we regard with horror the bloody dead which has deprived the Republic of its head; that we join in the general sorrow at his decease; that we appreciate the grand, heroic, and Christian example his whole career has furnished to mankind; that we demand swift but legal justice to his assassin; that we extend our deep and heartfelt sympathy to his loved and loving wife in her sad bereavement; that we call for measures which shall result in the extirpation of anarchism and of all organizations that aim at the lives of public officials and seek to destroy government and social order.
     Resolved also, That copies of this preamble and resolution be sent to the widow of our bereaved and lamented President, and to the Congress of the United States, and be published in the daily newspapers of this city.
     Presented to and adopted by the city council of Salt Lake City, Utah, September 24, 1901.

  Geo. Buckle, president; Geo. Canning; T. B. Beatty; Charles Cottrell, jr.; A. J. Davis; F. S. Fernstram; E. A. Hartenstein; F. J. Hewlett; C. R. Howe; Edgar Howe; J. B. Reid; A. A. Robertson; J. J. Thomas; W. J. Tuddenham; R. B. Whittemore; Ezra Thompson, mayor; J. O. Nystrom, city recorder.
