Worse Than Goldman

     Mrs. Carrie Nation’s anti-canteen zeal led her into an intemperate declaration against President McKinley at Steeplechase park, Coney Island, last week. In the course of her lecture she said:
     “Bill McKinley deserves to die. He is the friend of the brewer and the drinking man. I have no care for him. He deserves just what he got.”
     Emma Goldman, who is decent enough to admit that she is an anarchist, never carried intemperance to such a length as that. John Most, the whisky fiend with tangled beard, never, even in his cups, has dared to express himself so intemperately in public speech or print. It has remained for John G. Wooley, Rev. Q. A. Morrow and their prohibition coadjutors to advise openly that murder be done and to gloat over its accomplishment.
