Anarchy—High Treason

No phenomenon of feeling growing out of the tragedy has been more noticeable—save the range and depth of human sympathy for the victim and his family cropping out everywhere in all lands, among all sorts of men, of all faiths and political creeds—than the determination of the public, expressing itself in such sermons as were preached last Sunday (see page 396), in interviews with jurists and men of large business responsibilities, that the time has come for the United States, conjointly with other nations, if practicable, alone if not, to put an end to anarchy and anarchists in this country, and, so far as our responsibility lies, throughout the world. Sad evidence accumulates that a republic, with its rule of the people and its freedom of speech, is no more exempt from the evil-hearted man who hates all government than the most autocratic monarchy, with its lesè-majesté laws and its constraint on public speech and overt action.
