"'he good people of the city of Chl
eago have been greatly wrought tp
Aoet ,Ao of late over anony
mous letters
moon Letters. written people of
that city, and this has furnished the
editor of the Chronicle an occasion
for publishing for the benefit of his
fellow citizens a very sensible hom
ily. He says: The best way-the
only proper way to treat an anony
mous letter is to destroy it and for
get it. This is especially true when
the letter contains aspersions or tn
nuendoes affecting friends, relatives
or associates. It is a self-eviden,
fact that the writer of an anony
mous letter is a coward. There can
be no argument upon that point. It.
is a logical deduction that he is like
wise a liar, and if he were secure in
his facts he would have no occasiba
to seek shelter under the cloak of
anonymity. Tlo reaseeonable person
will pay any heed to the slanders of
a coward and a liar. Hence the anony
mous letter writer should be disre
garded. It may not be questioned
that the assassin of character who
shoots from the darkness. sometimes
leaves a wound. There are few fam
ilies in which there is not same epi
sode or incident which, though u1
fortunate instead of dishonorable,
would cause' pain and mortification if
retailed to neighbors and acquaint
ances. It is upon such sore spots
that the writer of anonymous letters
loves to press. The way to defeat his
Imalice is to give no sign-deny him
the gratification of seeing his would
be victim' wince. Publicity, newspa
,per notoriety, the open indignat'on
and mortification of injured people,
are exactly what the skulking letter
writer gloats over. To preserve ab
solute calmness, to ignore his slan
derous communications and give no.
sign of having received them-in,
shojt, to treat a liar aid cowaru with
the 'contempt that hd has earned-
these are the methods of dealing
with the crawling creature who
skulks in ambush and aims ,poisoned
arrows at the hearts bf his fllovs.
Even to send him to the pententiary
is &aheasure that ma be deelned a so
to his perverted vanity and cruelty.
Legal proceedings are sure to afford]
an opportunity for the further drag
ging out to public gas* of misfor
tunes and weaknesses upon which ha
preys. It is better to ignore himt'aml
tdgether. - - º
