On last Friday nicht President
McKinley breathed his last. Shot
down in the full strength of his
manhood, lie ftll in the midst of his
friends and with the full glory of
his righteous sovereignty all about
him. No man's martyrdom, (save
that of incoln) was ever so glor
iously crowned. With one successful
term in the presidency well rounded
out, and a second on the crested
wave of popular success, backed by
a life freighted with all the Chris
tian giaces of a true, pure man
hood, who would have thought it
possible for him to be trie victim of
the assassins bullet. The mystery
ot some things is beyond our ap
prehension, but from everything
we may draw a lesson.
When our fathers landed on Ply
mouth Rock, set their feet on
Jamestown shore for the purpose of
founding a home tor religious and
political freedom, they little thmight
the t.ew world would become the
haven of lawless refugees from the
lands of their oppression, whose re
ligion would be sedition and the
fruition of whose hopes would be
anarchy. In our unbounded love
of freedom we have permitted men
and women to come among us who
have confounded liberty with li
cense and whose mental and moral
natures are so dwarfed and distorted
that the real meaning of liberty is
uuknown to them, and they con
found it with license to live on lust.
Believing that the warm sunlight of
our free insulations would brinj
back to life tind comfort the worst
depraved natures, we cave uncon
sciously wnimrd back to life in the
very bosom cf our national existence
a vtnemous viper whose virus is
permeating the populous centers of
all our country, from liberty en-
lightening the world on 'Our eastern

Shall our nation submit to the
domination of such a slimy, loath
some creature? Will the sacrifice
of a life so crowned, be in vain?
Will our people awake to the fact
that eternal vigilance is the price of
liberty, and that as a nation we sail
through straits betwixt two, alike
liable to strike upon the rock
ot unlicensed democracy as upon
the stone ot imperial tyranny.

It may be and doubtlns in true
that there is a wide difference be
tween socialism nnd mouthy, but n
latge number of people associate
the two vety closely together. So
cialists want the government lo have
and control every thing, w hile the
anarchist want it to have and con
ttol nothing, and then abolish gov
ernment. The people remember that some
times extremes meet and produce
the same results. It may be said
with a show ot probable truthful
ness that all anarchists are or have
been socialists, while it is not true
that all socialists are anarchists.
But let it be granted that socialism
and anarchy are the antipodes of
each other, the one is all govern
ment, the other no government.
Can anyone see any other result in
socialism than the worst tyranny
ever opposed by man. Shall man
be compelled to adapt himself
to the same prescribed conditions!
that circumscribe the actions of hi
neighbor and if he submit not, have j
his food cut off, for it he toil not .
neither shall he eat, is the theory.
Who is to be the judge except it be
(some one of his fellows. There
must be some final lodgment of au
thority and that fin.il lodgment al

order ot the universe.
On thr other hand, the anarchist
oppose all forms of government, and
yet submit to the most despicable
tyranny on the face of the earth and
goes stoically to his death at the
behest of a centralized power, worse
than any slavery ever known under
any form of government ever vet
devised by man. Thev may be ex
tremes, but results may be the same.
There must be a lodgment of au
tority somewhere. Then why not
divide it up in the divinely appoint
ed waj, with rulers over tens, hun
dreds, thousands, and the people:)
townships, counties, states and the
nation, and these by legislative,

we have it in the United States.

Nor need there to be much
trouble about anarchy. What an
archy has k-d on is mainly respon
sible for anarchy. Anarchy woald
have starved to death long as;0 but
lor what it fed cn.
It fed tin blackguard journalism,
blacKguard cartoons, blackguard
speeches and demogoic platforms
and nominations. It fed on ap
peals to class hates, to sectional
savagery and to the poor against
the rich; to the idle against the
diligent, to the incapable against
the capable. That and worse was
what it fed on
fodder of froth

filth and frenzy!
and anarchy would soon starve to!
A hue and cry against anarchy
will do no harm. A man hunt
against it will do no harm. An i'.i

do no haim. Hut tthere is some
thing else will do more good.
Doom anarchy, to moral and men

there is no politics that will fool,

A meeting of j,ixo socialist was
held in a Hiverside grove on Sunday.
The chairman, , Wilmot I. Good-
sdecd, mtiuduced a resolution de
lining urieny me principle ot so
csaiism nnd expressing abhorrence
ot the attempt to assassinate Pres
ident McKinley, The resolution
protested against the popular bcliel
that socials and anarchists me iden
tical aikcd the ptess to tleny the
charge that socialistic principle
would lead any human being to at
tempt the assassination of another,
declared that socialism is the direct
antithesis of the anarchistic theory
and expressed a hope that the pres
ident would recover from his
wounds and Tthat "prompt justice
would be melted out to his would
be murderc!.' '
file resolution was not well re
ceived. It was supported by only a
lew speakers, among whom weie
Thomas J. Moigan and one or two
others. Vhe opposition was dem
onstrative and noisy. J. Wanhope,
editor of n paper known as the
Winkers' Call, asked why they
should pass resolutions "on the
shooting of a capitalistic president"
and said that they never passed res
olutions when men were mauled or
killed in the steel mil's or died as
sweat shop slaves. Other violent
speeches ot the same character were
made and they carried the da)-.
The ihairman again appealed to
the meeting on behalf of some de
chelation which would show that
'there was nothing in the teachings
or theories of socialism that would
countenance ciiminul methods." It
was all of no use. A motion was
made to lay the resolution on the
table. It was carried with a whoon
and the meeting adjourned with this
