Splinters [excerpt]

     Newspaper dispatches have it that the New York Supreme Court has confirmed the sentence of the lower court against John Most. Thus the judicial ontrage [sic] against him is now coolly consumated [sic]. Further details are not yet on hand.


     New York now has a law “against Anarchy,” compared with which the “omnibus sections” 249 and 250 of the Russian penal code will have to take a back seat.


     Several comrades in New York have been arrested for distributing the pamphlet “Czolgosz, Roosevelt, and Anarchy.” Their cases were postponed by the police magistrate, who hoped to have them arraigned under New York’s sanguine law concerning “Anarchy.”
