A Law Against Anarchy


Senator Allison Says Congress Will Undoubtedly Adopt Repressive Measures.

     Chicago (Special).—“Congress will probably make thorough investigation of anarchy in the United States next winter and will do its utmost to pass suitable laws for the prevention of any such crime in the future as that committed against President McKinley,” said Senator Allison, of Iowa. “I have no doubt there will be many joint sessions of the judiciary committee of the two houses during the session, and the best legal talent of the land will be called upon to assist the Attorney General in pointing out constitutional methods for reaching the seat of the trouble. The need is evident. The pressure for legislation will be very great, possibly pushing Congress to go to an unwarranted extreme. Some action will undoubtedly be taken that is in consonance with the constitution and will not infringe on proper freedom of speech.”
