Paterson Banishes Mrs Bresci


Widow of King Humbert’s Slayer Informed by the Mayor That She Must Depart.

     Mayor Neuman, of Paterson, took a decided step yesterday toward clearing the name of the city from the aspersions generally cast upon it by the presence of so many anarchists.
     He ordered Mrs. Gaetano Bresci, the widow of King Humbert’s slayer, to leave town, and it is believed that she will see fit to comply with the request.
     In spite of her repeated denials that she is associated with anarchists there is thought to be little doubt that she is in sympathy with their doctrines, and after the attempt to hold a picnic at her home last Sunday to raise funds for the defence of Czolgosz her neighbors demanded that she be sent out of town.
     The police in West Hoboken and Union Hill are keeping a sharp lookout for anarchists, and the saloons they are known to frequent are under surveillance.
