     Geo. C. Brooks, Newark, N. J.:—I have read with interest your editorial “The Lesson of the Hour” and am surprised at your claiming that Czolgosz was not an Anarchist. Surely the the [sic] man’s own statement points to the contrary and his intelligence and philosophy serve to prove the statement. Perhaps we shall soon hear that Most and Goldman are not Anarchists, should they follow their own teachings. If there is one thing more to my disgust than the white-washing of a noble statesman is [sic] white-washing his murderer.
