Lawyer Hoke’s Tale of Woe

     

OFFICE OF                   
GEORGE M. HOKE,               
CITY SOLICITOR.          
TIFFIN, O., Sept. 16, 1901.     

H. Gaylord Wilshire,
          Editor CHALLENGE,
               New York, N. Y.

     DEAR SIR: I have before me No. 37 of the CHALLENGE, published in New York, Sept. 11, 1901. This was five days after the anarchist bullet was fired at our President. I note a great deal in “No. 37” about H. Gaylord Wilshire, but not a word concerning the attempt upon the life of the Chief Executive of the best government on earth, your country and mine. In political convictions I did not agree with Mr. McKinley, but I cannot fail to admire his many noble qualities of mind and heart.
     I have no place in my office for a publication which has columns and columns to laud its egotistical editor and not a line or a word for a martyred President.
     My subscription to the CHALLENGE expires next spring; as, therefore, I am not in arrears, I shall ask you to discontinue sending it to my address.

 
Very truly,
GEO. M. HOKE.
