The End of the Anarchist

     The execution of CZOLGOSZ yesterday seems to have been remarkable as a thoroughly well-managed and successful execution by the method of the electric current. It was conducted with dignity and great celerity.
     Thus has died a wretch whose existence on the earth was no more tolerable by society than if he had been a noxious reptile. He had an absolutely just trial and the law was vindicated.
     Let no physical trace remain to show that such a creature ever existed on the earth.
