L. M. H., Colo.:—When Czolgosz said he was an Anarchist of course that was enough to set the whole world in a furor. If he had really been one he would not have mentioned Emma Goldman so quickly to get her into trouble. Nothing that any one can say—the inconsistency of Anarchists having “leaders,” “high priestesses,” of organizations, plots and conspiracies, of “commands to kill which must be obeyed at the price of death,” when they do not believe in the authority of any person over another and rely thoroughly on the responsibility of each for his own deeds and for no one’s else [sic]—nothing will stop the clamor, the persecution, the misrepresentation, the frenzy of the public hounded on by pulpit, press, and the teachers, until there are more innocent martyrs[.]
