     TO THE EDITOR OF THE SUNSir: There can be no question but that the yellow journals are primarily responsible, not only for this attempted assassination of our beloved President, but for a large percentage of existing crime and lawlessness. To me it is simply amazing that some of our leading financiers have not met a violent death at the hands of persons deluded and mentally poisoned by these miserable, wicked sheets. I am usually capable of expressing myself clearly and to the point, but I am simply overcome and speechless and my vocabulary a hopeless jumble when I attempt to depict in Anglo-Saxon the horror and depravity of their publications. A special Anarchistic Secret Service Department should be organized in every city, town and hamlet in the United States for the detection and apprehension of this class of criminal Anarchists, and as each one thousand is corralled, tow them five hundred miles to sea and then scuttle the ship, and let the Goldman woman and the “Yellow Man” be placed in the first batch towed out of New York harbor.
