At the close of the. reeular Sunday

Dr. Stephens Wants' Them Beleg-ated

Places of the Earth. £
The Rev. John Stephens, pastor of

Church, last night prefaced his sermon
with a tribute to William McKinley, "the
plain, manly American Christian," and a
vigorous denunciation of Czolgosz and all
his pestilential tribe. lie said in part:
An anarchist Is an enemy of the law. I^et
the man who does not believe in law. perish
without it. The Goldman*, the Herr Mosts and
the Isaacs have had their liberty too long.I^et

without waiting for him to commit his murder:
"You have abandoned the right to stay among
us. <3o olse\yhere and use whatever chance you

are wise, will do th6 same. Your only possible
home is your only fit home— the wild and desert

CHICAGO. Sept. 8.— Two thousand
members of the socialists voted down a
resolution of regret at the attempted as
sassination of the President, at a meet
ing in Bergman's Grove, Riverside, to
day. The argument of those opposed to
the resolution was that ilcKinley was the
representative of the capitalist class, and
that his safety or danger was a matter
of no concern to socialists.
Socialists Do Not Regret Tragedy.
SAYS ANARCHISTS
ARE ENEMIES OF LAW
"In my judgment," said Mr. Miller, "the
attempted assassination of the President
again suggests that in.: forming our crim
inal laws we have paid too little attention
to the protection of the Government. As
a general rule the law takes no more ac
count of an assault upon the- President
than upon a private citizen. If, as all
good people hope, the President shall sur
vive this attack, the offense, if the laws
of New York are as I suppose they are,
is simply an assault with intent to com
mit murder. It seems to be that they
should be so framed as to take Into ac
count the President's public character;
in short, that r.n attempt to take the life
of the President should be deemed treason
and be punished accordingly.
INDIANAPOLIS,. Sept.' 8.— An attempt
upon the President's life should be, treated
as treason, says W. H. H. Miller, Attor

ous Defect Exists in the Crim

ATTACK SHOULD BE
CONSIDERED TREASON
After eight policemen were • treacherously
murdered by the anarchists in Chicago in 1886
a bill was drafted and presented to both houses
of representatives favoring' the rigid exclusion
and deportation of all alien anarchists. I be
lieve that bill failed to pass, but surely with
this latest crime before us we shall not cease
to urge and pray for the passage of some law
by which every known anarchist may be ban
ished or imprisoned with hard laBbr. .. and the
monster Czolgosz be sentenced to -solitary con
finement for life.
In the brutal attack on President McKinley
there can be but one universal verdict that it
was a most treacherous and .¦ diabolical act
against one who is the peer if not the superior
of any living ruler on earth. No incentive was
there to the atrocious deed other than the de
pravity of the anarchists, whose creed is no
tiod, no government, no work, no home, no
marriage, and whose banner Is the red flag of
riot and murder. * ¦ "
Three times in less. than fifty years has the
assassin's hand been raised against the highest
officer in the United States Government, and
every time against a man who honored the po
sition to which he had been elected. Four
times in a little over seven years has the hand
of the anarchist been dipped In the blood of as
many rulers and in every instance they who
'were selected as victims were among the great
est in their positions.
Rev. Philip Coombe, pastor of the Rich
mond Congregational Church, delivered a
stirring sermon against anarchy last
evening. In the course of his remarks he
said:

Bought to carry out their theories in practice.
He was the tool of shrewder persons, who
directed him In the consummation of his awful
act. The time has come for the nation to male a

whose names have been sent ¦ by the foreign
police agents as belonging to a movement which
has for Its motto the overthrow ! of all good

bers are the allies of all evil and the enemies
of good. ... .
The fearful responsibility for the dastardly
attack on President McKinley lies afthe door
of anarchy. ! This diabolical movement, which
has been permitted to gain strength In Pater
son, N. J., and Chicago, is directly answerable
for the crime. The man who struck our be
loved executive In the prime of his career Is an
avowed anarchist and claims to have been in
cited to commit the heinous deed by the in
flammatory speeches of Emma Goldman and
others of her ilk.^ ' : L .

PASTOR BELIEVES IN
STRENUOUS MEASURES
In this connection. It Is of Interest that some
experienced surgeons do not mind the tempera
ture at all In noting the bulletins of the Presi
dent's condition, but say that so long as the
pulse Is in the proper relation to the tempera
ture In a big operation like this it is very com
mon, for the temperature to remain around 102
or even 103. But if the temperature had
dropped and the pulse had accelerated It would
have been a danger signal of peritonitis-setting
In. It Is of interest also to know that after an
operation of this kind the peristaltic or com
pressive action In the abdominal cavity ceases
or becomes retrograde.
In turning .-up the stomach, an act that was
absolutely necessary, and was performed by
Dr. Mann with rare skill, the danger Was that
some of the contents of tha stomach might get
into the abdominal cavity and as a result cause
peritonitis. It so happened that there was very
little in the President's stomach at the time of
the operation. Moreover, subsequent devolop
ments tend to show that this feature of the
operation was grandly successful and that none
of the contents of the stomach entered the ab
dominal cavity. If any of the contents had en
tered the cavity the probability is that by now
peritonitis would have set In.
The operation lasted almost an hour. A cut
about five Inches long was made. It was found
necessary to turn up the stomach of the Presi
dent in order to traee the course of the bullet.
The bullet's opening in the front wall of the
stomach was small and it was carefully closed
with sutures, after which a search was made
for the hole In the back wall, of the stomach.
This hole, where the bullet 'went out of the
stomach, was larger than the hole of the front
wall of the stomach, in fact it was a wound of
an inch in diameter, jagged and ragged. It
was sewed up In three layers. This wound was
larger than the wound where the bullet entered
the stomach, because the bullet In Its course
forced tissues ahead of it.
The operation performed at the Emergency
Hospital left no need. for a second operation to
follow It almost immediately. The full details
of the operation therefore , have not been
known. It was performed by Dr. Matthew D.
Mann. Ilia first assistant was Dr. Herman
Mlnter. His second assistant was Dr. John
Parmenter. His third assistant was Dr. Lee
of St. Louis, who happened to be on the ex
position grounds at the time of the tragedy
and placed his services at the disposal of the
President. Dr. Nelson "W. Wilson noted the
time of the operation and took the notes. Dr.
Eugene "W'asdin of the Marine Hospital gave
the anaesthetic. Dr. Rixey arrived at the lat
ter part of the operation, and held the light.
Dr. Parke arrived at the close of the opera
tion. Dr. Mann wielded the knife.

Threats against not only the man himself
