[untitled]

I BELIEVE in calling a spade a spade and giving these bomb-abominations their appropriate names. I understand we have a man-of-war called the “Philadelphia,” the “brotherly-love!”—& yet we think that Americans have a sense of humor! We shall be calling a torpedo-boat the “William Penn” next! No, let us quit such fooling with the truth. Let us call the new torpedo-boats that we are about to build after the most famous, or rather, infamous of anarchists. Let us have a steel “Ravachol,” a “Bresci,” a “Czolgosz,” engaged in the congenial work of destruction, & when it [7][8] comes to battle-ships, why not call the next one “Anarchy” & be done with it?
