Under the Searchlight [excerpt]

     A CERTAIN well-known electrical manufacturing concern in this country is said to have adopted a most effective method of stamping out anarchy. The plan is to discharge from employment every man who speaks disparagingly of the late President McKinley and his assassination and every employe [sic] who has anarchistic ideas. The business men [sic] think that when the daily bread is taken from these creatures they may ultimately reform to decent, law-abiding citizens.
