Just Indignation


Hearst and His Anarchistic Sheets Burned in Effigy.

(Special Dispatch to the Delta.)

     Hanford, September 7.—There were exciting times in Hanford last night. William R. Hearst and his vile sheets were burned in effigy. A lot of old newspapers labeled “Examiner, American and New York Journal” and an artificial dog made of yellow stuff were tied together and dragged through the streets. The dog was labeled “Hearst.” At length the objects were strung up, and Mr. Tiffany made a speech to the large crowd of spectators. Pointing to the pile of papers he said: “These sheets represent the yellowest of yellow journals.” Then pointing to the dog he said: “This represents Hearst. We will burn the papers, but we feel sorry for the dog, so we will cover it with sackcloth.” And then the crowd cheered and the torch was applied.
