W NE result of the assassination of
I i President Oarnot wastheintro
II I dnotton today by W. A. Stone, of
vi Pennsylvania, of a bill defining
the term "anarchist" and providing
penalties for crimes attempted by an
archists. The Pill provides that any
person or persona appointed, designated
or employed by any society or organi
sation existing in this country or in
.my foreign country which provides In
writing or by verbal agreement, un
derstandlng or countenance, for the
taking of human life uulawfullv.or for
the unlawful destruction of a bnlldlug
or buildings or other property where
the loss of human life is the piohaule
result ol such destruction of property,
shall lie deemed an anarchist.
Any person being an anarchist ns
defined by the first tojtion ol this act.
who shall attempt thu life of any per
son holding office, olrctivo or ap
pointive, or employed under the con
stitution and laws of the United States,
or who shall attempt the destruction of
any building or buildiuga or other
property where the loss of the life of
any such Tnited Stute4 official or em
ploye would be the probable result of
such a destruction of buildings or Other

tion of such offense in any circuit or

the district where such offsnoe was at
tempted, be sen tonced to death by hang
ing, which sentence shall be executed
by the marshal of tbo district in ac
cordance with the sentence of tho judge
uofo'e upon the oas was tried,
Speaking of the bill, Mi. Stone said:
"This country is the natural hiding
place and rendezvous of the anarchist.
There are more of them in this country
today, periiaps, thau in any other. Un
less we can restrict their coining and
impose a severe penalty for thoir cruel
ties here, we may expeet more trcqnent
assassinations in the future.
"The hiil introduced bv ma today is
hastily drawn. Its purpose is to call
public attention to the absence in our
laws of any penally for any attempt to
tako the life of an official other than
that imposed for aggravated assault
witii intent to kill.
''It will give congress nu opportunity
to perffct our laws in this regard. Of
course, congress oan only legislate to
protect United States olllcials. Legis
lation for protection to others must be
passed by theStntes. It may be thought
Man) by soma that the death penalty
should he visited npon an anarchist,
who attempts the life of nn ollicial of
the United States, lint 1 believe such
persons are enemies lo society and the
country and should be exterminated,
and the death penalty ia not n sufficient
punishment for their crime."
