Anarchy

     It will be amusing at out [sic] next session of congress to watch the law makers [sic] in their attempts to legislate against anarchy. They will vie with each other in their efforts to so frame a law that it will miss the rich anarchist and hit the poor anarchist. To be acceptable the law must be so framed as to protect the instigators of the tragedies at Homestead, Couer De Alene [sic], Buffalo, Cool Creek, Hazelton, Chicago and the wholesale butcheries in the name of commercial expansion now going on in the Philippines. The law must be constructed on the plan of the old farmer’s gun that would miss a bear but hit a calf.
