The Boston Courier in an
editorial, after considering the evidence adduced by Dr. Walter
Channing, a well-known alienist, concludes that the assassin of
McKinley was insane at the time of the deed, his insanity having
resulted from prolonged ill health. Whether this conclusion is true
or not does not concern us here, it it [sic] the deliciously
unconscious humor which is expressed in the closing lines of the
editorial with which we have to deal. They read:
But what is the practical inference?
(from the fact (?) that Czolgosz was insane.) Are not all Anarchists
What logic! The editorial states
that Czolgosz was insane before he became an Anarchist and then
asks if all Anarchists are not insane. By such reasoning it could
be proved that if a man was insane before he became a Christian
all Christians must therefore be insane. Is the editor of The
Boston Courier insane, or ishe [sic] a wordy windbag?
