The attempt to assassinate Presi
dent McKinley last Friday evening
at Buffalo by a cowardly anarchist,
was a dastardly deed, and one that
has been condemned by the entire
South. It is glorious news which is
received that his life will be spared.
lion. J. V. Calhoun, State Super
intendent of Public Edneation, has
issued an important eurctilar to par
ish superintendents, calling a gen
eral convention to assemble in New
Orleans, at McDonough High
School No. 1, Calliope street, be
tween St. Charles and Prytania
streets, on )October. 12th, at 12
noon. Presidents and directors of
school boards are specially invited
to attend. The address of welcome
will be delivered by Hon. E. B.
Krattsechnitt, President Qf the New
Orleans City School Board.
The Baton Rouge Advocate in a
strong editorial on "what shall we
do with anarchism," says that ,,those
who teach anarchism are enemies to
society, and our laws should pro
hibit the wretches whose hearts have
become disordered by the tyranny
of despots to find asylums here. It
should provide for the banibshment
of those of this class already here,
whether of foreign or native birth,
and the penalty for being found on
American soil, after banishment,
under due process of law, should be
penal servitude for life., There is
scarcely an anarchist or anarchist
organization in the United States
that is not as well known as any
public citizen is the State in which
he resides. Belief in' such princi
ples is a crime and crimninals -hould
wreak their vengeance ellew here
than in this land of freedom. Ilet
us prohibit anarchists from landing
on our shores aud.banish those we
have and let the world Cnw that
the whole of thie:oontingeut in the
United States will be found within
the walls of our penitentiaries and
out of harm's way."

The South and the President.
There is much saljafaat n to be

r ia not a sift gl ud' oti oCe
,red toilarrf ' plsure Of hi~ our
ney. lie came into a Section of the
country srtpposedl) unfriendly to him,
but be was surprised and delighted at
the cordial and hospitatble way in which
he was received by all classes of peo
ple. He was not long in realizing
that instead of being in "the enemy's
country" he was among true Ameicains
and friends, one and all eager to honor
him as the chief executive of the uatiDn.
While they differed with hilm politically
they had the war'most admirlltion for
his magnificent personal qutiliti;-s, hi
spotless character, kindly hear t and
loving devotion which at ail times he
sq delichately mainifested for his f:aithful
Senuator McEnery ios 1ute correct in
sa' ing that had all anarchists, or any
one elae, dealt Preside-,t McKinley a
Iurdilerous blow during his stay in this
city the wretch w;i:ul,' n-ever have
reached the door of a jail, for the peo
ple would have put the assassin to in
tanoIt and terrible death. The South
Smayt have its faults, but it is unqiuei
tionah,y the m1ost thoroughly American
section of the country to-day, and on
its soil anarchism can not take root
and grow. This fact was clearly de
monstrated a few years ago when the
Itaiian society called the -"Matia," as
sassil:ated Chief of Police Hlennessey
under the cover of darkness :oud al
most upon his own door step. The
people realizing from the awful crime
that they had in their midst a group of
human tigers far more dangerous than
the striped terrors of the Indian jun
gle. took the law. which had been out
raged and tidled. into their own hands
and exterminated the menmbers of the
aasssdip bandl-killed them as though
they were so many deadly reptiles and
New Orleans was purged of the Mafia.
It was a terrible lesson. but it taught
the disciples of anarc.hy that they could
not exist in this atmosphere, nor do we
believe that they can exist in any potr
tion of the South, becanse of its real
Americanism. It would :e impossibi,i
for a society of foreign anarchists such
as has iats headquarters at Patterson,
N. J., where it plotted the assassin-,t omi
of King Hlumbert of Italy awl even
now boasts of its dastardly work, to
establish itself in a Southen city. The
people would simply not stand for it.
and this is all that need be said in the
matter. Anarchism flourishes in,those
cities or States in this country which
have been tilled up with inliscriminut.e
immigration from Europe. There is
no place for it in the South, and there
never will be, unless the whole c:h:ar
acter of our people changes.-N. O.
