We Want Good People Only

     Public sentiment in his [sic] country will undoubtedly be in favor of the prompt passage of the general immigration bill prepared by Chairman Shattuc of the House Committee on Immigration and Naturalization, which has now been favorably reported and is awaiting congressional action.
     Especially will that provision of the bill be heartily approved which excludes from admission to the United States all anarchists or persons who believe in or advocate the overthrow by force or violence of all governments of forms of law or the assassination of public officials.
     Americans have had more than enough of these gentry. They drew the dead line against anarchists on the day that Anarchist Czolgosz shot down President McKinley as the latter extended his hand to greet Czolgosz as an American citizen.
