Anarchists Guard Paper
Spring Valley, Ill.—Twenty anarchists,
armed with double-barreled shotguns and 100 rounds of ammunition, are standing
guard over the office of l’Aurore, the notorious anarchist publication which
expressed joy at the murder of President McKinley and satisfaction over the
announcement that Czolgosz was an anarchist.
Meanwhile fully 2000 citizens of adjoining towns have sent word to the authorities here that they are ready and anxious to start at a moment’s notice for this city and assist in the extermination of the “reds.” The temper of the people here is at boiling point. The editor is in hiding.
A committee will wait on the manager of the local coal company and insists that he discharge the anarchists in his employ, and the anarchists and their sympathizers, who number 700, threaten to hold a mass meeting.
If they persist in this paln [sic] a riot is almost certain to ensue.
