Code of Instructions to Czolgosz
Buffalo, Sept. 12.—The Courier says
this morning: Superintendent Bull now has in his possession the
code of instructions imparted to the selected assassin Czolgosz.
The platform of the Free Society was also added to the cumulative
evidence of the anarchist conspiracy yesterday. This document binds
its members together to advocate and work for the destruction of
the existing social order, and continues:
As in former times, no privileged
class ever relinquished its tyranny, no more can we take it for
granted that the capitalists of the present day will forego their
privileges and their authority without compulsion. It is therefore
self-evident that the fight of the proletarian against the upper
and the middle classes must be of a violent character and that mere
wage conflicts can never lead to the goal. We show by numerous illustrations
that all attempts which have been made in the past to do away with
the existing monstrous social system through peaceful means—for
example the ballot box—have been useless and will be so in the future.
Force, the only remedy.—We know, therefore,
that the ruling class will not voluntarily relinquish its prerogatives
and will make no concessions to us. Under all these circumstances
there is only one remedy left—force.
Our platform is simple and divided
1. Destruction of existing class domination
through inexorable revolution in international activity.
2. The building of a free society
on communistic organization or productions.
3. Free exchange of equivalent products
through the productive organization without jobbing and profit making.
4. Organization of the educational
system upon non-religious and scientific and an equal basis for
5. Equal rights for all without distinction
of sex or race.
6. The regulation of public affairs
through agreement between the independent communes and confederacies.
