“Yellow” Anarchism

     Out of the attempted assassination of President McKinley has grown a sentiment of just indignation against the “yellow” journalism which is responsible in a great measure for the spirit and results of anarchy in this country. The New York Journal, which has heaped upon President McKinley the worst abuse that it is possible to place upon any man, and which has sown the seeds of discord and unrest among the masses of the people who read that sheet, is receiving the condemnation which it deserves. That paper is rejected by thousands of people who fear its influence upon members of their households, among the number being many good Democratic families in Nyack who will not allow it to come within their doors.
     When, however, the news was received of the assault upon President McKinley, that yellowest of all yellow journals “crawled” and praised Fresident [sic] McKinley to the skies. Such hypocrisy is too transparent to deceive anybody. A paper of the character of the above odiously “yellow” journal should be excluded from every American home.
