Paterson Banishes Mrs [sic] 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 [f]rom the aspersions generally cast upon it by the presence o[f] so many anarchists.
     He ordered Mrs. Gaetano Bresci, the widow of King Humbert’s slayer, to leave town, and it is believed that s[h]e will see fit to comply with the request.
     In spi[t]e of her repeated denials that she is associated with anarchists there is thought to be li[tt]le doubt that she is in sympathy with th[e]ir doctrines, and after the attempt to hold a picnic at her home last Sunday to raise [f]unds [f]or 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 [f]or anarchists, and the saloons they are known to [f]requent are under surveillance.
