CALDERS STATION,               
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Sept. 19.     

     The assassination of President McKinley was a national calamity, and no one deplores it more than the Socialist Party, notwithstanding we are classed with the assassinator by the ignorant and uninformed.
     If there were more Socialists there would be less danger to the powers that be, and some day we hope to elect a President, and when we do he will be safe as any Republican President.
     Inclosed you will find money for two cards. I had expected to sell your cards long before this, and would have done so only for the national calamity. Later on, when the nation’s grief has subsided and it is safe to tell people you are not of the G. O. P. crowd, I will sell the remaining cards and remit to you. They have got to go. If I can’t sell them, I will give them away and settle on my own account.
     The day is coming when we will no longer be confounded with Anarchists, and we won’t be afraid to “speak out in meetin’” for fear some one will mob us.     Yours,
