Anarchists Must Go

     All good American citizens will earnestly hope for the enactment of such national legislation at the next session of Congress as shall make possible the suppression of anarchy.
     Such citizens will also hope that the Government shall be able to get at the full facts of the anarchist plot of which the man Czolgosz was the criminal instrument. True, Czolgosz says there was no plot, but there are thousands of other anarchists in this land and they believe as Czolgosz believes, and the country wants to be rid of them.
     Priding ourselves upon the fact of our country being a haven of refuge for the oppressed of all races, and being jealous of the slightest apparent restriction of human rights, we have allowed our love of freedom and of humanity to carry us to the opposite extreme. Within comparatively a few years the United States have become a home and a safe plotting place for broods of anarchists whose only creed is that of chaos and disorder and the assassination of the foremost representatives of law and order. These anarchists have nothing in common with the American spirit. They hate a President of this free and self governing country as bitterly as they hate the most merciless tyrant. They denounce our free institutions as they denounce the monarchies of the Old World. They are enemies to the human race.
     The anarchists must be dealt with in the spirit necessitated by their own deeds. They have brought this judgment upon themselves. They must abide by it. There is no excuse for anarchy in the United States. There is no room for anarchy in the United States. The anarchists must go.
