Pottsville, Pa., May 30.—Armored
trains of cars, with loopholes for rifles and revolvers, were
sent to different parts of the Schuylkill coal region today.
They were provided for the use of special policemen at the collieries.—St.
When a man is driven by grand and
noble motives to send a monster to those happv [sic] hunting-grounds
which are daily advertised for the poor and miserable, and for which
that monster believed himself destined, then a great big howl is
raised; but I do not see a line of protest in any daily against
the above quoted piece of news.
Why are all the lickspittles [sic]
clergy and pencil-pushers so quiet? Why make such a big fuss about
one man who believed himself that he would go to a better world
when he would leave this one? Who said himself “God’s will be done,”
(not Czolgosz’s) “not ours.”
Even if these armored cars will not
be used, the announcement of having prepared such cars in case strikers
should prevent “scabs” from taking the places of the former, for
the purpose of shooting them down like dogs, is enough to set the
blood of the extremest humanitarian boiling and raise the desire
in him to see every scoundrel of a coal baron hanging on the first
telegraph post, in the absence of a lantern post.
