t ' The Commoner Vol. k. No. 36. Lincoln, Nebraska,' September 27, 1901. $1.00 a Year Freedom of Speech. . Some of tho republican papers arc suggest ing limitations upon the freedom of speech as a cure for anarchy. Tho editor of The Com moner has as much reason as any living man to know of the abuse sometimes heaped upon candidates for office. Ho has been the vidtim of as much malice and vituperation as have ever been employed against an American, and yet he is opposed to placing any additional re striction upon the freedom of speech or tho freedom of tho press. First, because the evils of restriction are greater than tho evils of freedom, and, second, because abuse does not hurt the man or tho party made the subject of attack. The death of President McKinloycan not be traced to any thing ever spoken or written against him. The assassin spoke affectionately of his victim and said that he killed him not because of his dis like for tho man but because of his opposition to government o...

Q 3 r. Nobel's fortune was made -in the manufacture of guns, ammunition, and other explosives. For years lie held contracts for supplying sev eral of the great armies of Europe with fight ing material. That this man should oiler such a munificont reward to those whose talents are spent in preventing war is thought by Mr. Curtis to he very strange. Probably no man had a better opportunity than Nobel to rightly estimate the disas trous consequences of an appeal to arms. Men did not fight because Nobel made ammu nition and guns. Nobel made ammunition and guns because men fight, and consequently re quire ammunition. and'gunB with which to set tle their differences.

It was a solemn pageant. As the long train, deco rated with its emblems of- mourning, climbed tho heights of the Alleghanies, the people gathered upon tho mountain sides and paid their last tri buta of respect.

The M liV Commoner. Vol. i. No, 37. Lincoln, Nebraska, October 4, 1901, $1.00 a Year Dolliver on Anarchy. Senator Dolliver of Iowa made a speech at the Memorial Services held in Chicago on Sun day, September 22d. In the course of his re marks he took occasion to discuss two phases of the question of anarchy, or rather two rem edies. Some seem to think that anarchy can not be suppressed without limiting the free dom of speech and the freedom of the press. It is refreshing to find one so eminent in the republican party as Mr. Dolliver challenging this dangerous doctrine. He says: "A government like ours is always slow to move, and often awkward in its motions, but it can bo trusted to find effective remedies for conditions liko these, at least after thoy becomo intolerable. But these remedies, in order to becomo effective, must not evade the sense of justice which is universal, nor the traditions of civil liberty, which wo have inher ited from our fathers.

Even tho trust question escapes attention, while matters that hut a small proportion of the pcoplo have considered receive prominence and emphasis.

The gentler sex, perhaps, but not the weaker sex by any means. It is true that in the point .of physical strength the average man surpasses tho average woman. But it is not true that in emerg encies, when real strength of character is essen tian, when conditions require a moral force that provides all other essential forms of strength, even for the moment of the physical kind, that man is the superior of woman. We have seen this question tested in the homes of the country, at the bedside of sick chil dren, where the father's boasted superior physical strength often fails in comparison with the Btrength and endurance of the devoted mother. iWe have seen it at tho open grave of some loved one, where frequently the man gives way to em...

After suffering in History. Washington for -weary weeks . he was taken to Elberon, where he could have the benefit of the sea air. He thought he had a chance for life, but those who had cared for him through all the long weeks knew that he was going to Elberon to die. The end came on September 19, 1881, and President Garfield's soul wended its way to its maker. It is a sad coincidence that President William MoKinley, also the victim of an assassin's bullet, was buried on the twentieth anniversary of the death of President Garfield September 19, 1901. r As I stated in an early issue of Tins Com moner, I do not intend to do injustice to any one and shall gladly correct President . any mistake made.
