Named persons
Sante Geronimo Caserio; Leon Czolgosz.



     They do some things well in France, and the way they deal with men who make public announcement ot [sic] sympathy with anarchists and anarchists’ crime is one of these things. A commercial traveler was arrested the other day in a cafe of Courbevoie, near Paris, while expressings [sic] approval of the crimes of Czolgosz and Caserio. To commend an anarchist crime in a public place is a punishable offense according to French law. This is wholesome treatment, and the French method is respectfully called to the attention of the lawmakers in America w[h]o are considering how to handle a subject that presses for proper treatment. A term in prison, at hard labor, is a punishment b[e]fitting the crime of [e]xpr[e]ssing public approval of assassin[a]tion.
