THE ALARM.

Nov. 1, 1884.

The Socialists are accused of advocating the destruction of property. Their policy is this: When they take possessin of a store they will declare it a public storehouse and public goods, and any man can take whatever he needs; but anyone destroying or wasting anything, or carrying off more than he has need of, will be considered a public enemy. But in case of an overpowering attack by the police or militia it is better to set fire to all that cannot be carried off.
