Named persons
Johann Most [variant first name below].


     John Most, the Anarchist editor, was arrested, by the police, in his office in this city, on Thursday,—not for any supposed connection with the attack on the President, but for the publication in his paper, the “Freiheit,” of articles calculated to excite riot and disturbance. It is one of the evils of the presence of such characters in the community, that the very action of the law required for their control and correction, gives them the notoriety after which they are forever craving, and on which their existence depends; but the remedy has to be applied. Like virulent diseases, if left unchecked the ulterior consequences would be worse; but when wisely and firmly dealt with, the danger is speedily and effectively eliminated.
