COMING FOURTH OF JULY
Wrthin less than a ^month Inde
pendence Day will be agan upon us.
As has been the case for a quarter j
of a century, the authorities of the
larger cities have been attempting
to curb, if not eliminate, many dan
gerous practices indulged in by
thoughtless men and boys on this
great national holiday. Alexandria
was one of the first cities to take
measures looking to the suppression
of the use of explosives on such oc
cascr.s, and attempts were made t"
enforce laws made by our grand
fathers which not only forbids the
use but the sale of explosives in
this city. During late years Mayor
Fisher has issued orders to the po
lice to give this matter their undi
vided attention. The officers previ
ous to'the Fourth of July notify all
dealers in devices which tend to
make the holiday odious to refrain
from selling the same . On some oc
casions, and attempts were made to
to defy the law, and they were haled
into the Police Court where they
were made to pay fines.
Mayor" Fisher has again directed
the members of the police force to
see that the law is obeyed.
The people of Baltmore are
working earnestly to make the com
ng Fourth safe and sane. Geenral
Pershing has sent the folowir.g let
ter to the authorites of the Monu
"1 beg to acknowledge-your.letter
of Apnil 20, asking for my indorse
ment of safe and sane July
celebrations. The object of your
celebration must 'have the sup
pert of every intelligent American
people gain a wholesome and deep
rooted rerpect for law and order and
realisation of^the necessity for pio
tecting private property, the princi
ples of the Declaration of Independ
ence. which are celcbratc-d on July
4. with be defeated. Your efforts
to restrict the reckless and ignorant
use of fireworks in celebrating the
Fourth of July will meet with the
. approval of those who care for
children, who have been the chief
sufferers in this respect in our cel
ebrations in the past. 1 iirmK be
lievu that one of the great lessons
that the soldiers of the American
Expeditionary Forces will biing
home with them is a wholesome res
pcct for the law and order, and the
?danger that comes from reckless
and ignorant use of explosives."

Anarchism has x> binding pro
gram. Each member is allowed to do
what he pleases-*-in anarchistic cir
cles. Usually they band together in
little grcup3, with a more or less
connecting (underground) chain be
tween each group. Their meetings are
secret, and so is the membership.
The most experienced bomb makers
among the anarchists are guarded.
They never dispose of the bombs.
These are given to other members ot
the society, leaders, who in turn, pass
them on to still others, who do the
hurling or planting.
