Anarchists Driven Out
A Ku Klux Raid Forced Them to Leave the Country.
PITTSBURG [sic], PA.,
September 17.—A Commercial Gazette special from a staff correspondent
says thirty armed men, imitating the movement of the famous Ku Klux
clan [sic], raided the Anarchists of Guffey Hollow, Westmoreland
county [sic], Sunday night, and forced twenty-five families to take
their departure from the town before daylight.
The raiders surrounded the house and
terrorized the Anarchists by firing Winchesters and revolvers and
yelling like Indians.
During a lull in the fusilade [sic]
one of [th]e Anarchists, who could speak English, ventured from
his house under a flag of truce and had a parley with the invaders.
The result of the conference was that the Anarchists agreed to be
responsible for the immediat[e] removal of th[e] whole colony. By
the terms of the capitulation the foreigners were to leave the vicinity
with their wives, children, and all their belongings before daybreak.
They kept their contract, and before the sun r[o]se every house
in the settlement was d[e]serted. The only favor they asked in return
for their exodus was that their lives should be spared.
