TOCKBR,Author and editor, founderland, France, Germany and at the antipodes.”Anarohist Glqb Fonned.There was an active Anarchist club^ and quite a rnoveroent In Boston, whehThe Anarchist movemecnt heore In Boston received its Inception about 15 years age, and ever since there has been a more or lesa regular propaganda of the doctrine carried on here by various and many adherents of the causa In 18S1 Benjamin R. Tucker, a talented journalist and one of the most able men that advocated tho principles of anarchism, started his paper called Liberty hera which afterwards was removed to IKew York, but which has ever been the best publloatlon the movement ever had in America.What the FouDder Saja.Mr. Tucker has thi(i to say about the founding of his paper:*Tn August, 1881, 1 started in Boston, in a very quiet way, a little fortndghUy journal called liberty. Its purpose was to contribute to the solution of the social problems by carr3img to a lo^ oonolusion the battle mguXtmt authorlto «M iB wluU Proudhoa had oalteddttssolutlon of government tn the economic organism.'^'Beyond the opportunity of contrttmt-in*ii; my mite 1 lolt;Aed for little from every experiment. Bht alifiost before X kne«w it the tiny papcf/ had begun to exert an lin»-fluence of which I had not dreamed. It went tho wide world over. In nearly every important city and In many a country town It found some mind |i1pe for its reception.Bach of these minds became a centre of influence, and in consiiierably less than a year a speciflc movement had sprung Into existence under Proudhon'i^ happily chosen name, anarchisra, of which liberty was generally recognised as the organ.Since that time, through varying fortunes. the paper lias gone on wkh slow but steady growth, doing its quiet work. Books inspired by tt. and other journals, which it called, into being, have made their appearahoe, n6t onkr in variouspa^ of tha Uattoh ttslisJ bag iblt; ai^Mr. Tucker started his Iilberty.About that time a brilliant young Russian, Victor Yarros, w^as a fascinating figure of the movement, and attracted to it a number^ of prominent men and women, Including, several well-known journalists. who aided the cause with tongrue and pen. Anothej Russian then active In behalf of the idea here was N. Zamet-kln. He is now a leading Social Democrat in New York.From time to time a noted speaker would come here’ from New York and a 8teclal hall would be hlr^ for the occasion.While the movement was essentiallycomposed of foreign elements, many Americans became adherents of the cause, and at one time the Boston Comrades boasted of carrying on one of the most active propagandas In the country.It was ever an educational campaign, as they called it, the e1]Ject being to spread their radical conceptions of life among the masses, particull|rly among the working masses. The la^r unions „were noted, fields Of conquest, and many labor leaders became avowed! aympathls-era with thO'cause. *Anismanarwhohis I He ward alwa dent He c edite and of t) In1ISects Oombined Their Beliefs.During the very early days the Anar-eblats and the Soclklists were together, members of the j same organlsationa In these days they had no definite conceptions of their ideals.They advocated a change on general principles They demanded* a state of greater freedom and larger equality. They knew not exactly what they wanted, or as the jester of the Ghetto has said; They wanted about the same thing and got just as^much.The Aihelter Bildungs Vereln was an active organisation, composed of all sorts of radicals of the time. It used to meet at 46 Eliot street and other places.The UAiferences between the Socialists and Anarchists furnished no end of material for debates, and these could be heard in various lunch rooms where the comrades' * used to congregate.Liater the Social Democrats decided to go Into politics, nd they parted company with the Anarchists.Various clubs were formed and tn turn broken up by the fed ones, but the movement still wen^^r on. And so through varying fortunes, and most often with doubtful successes, the propaganda was carried on here, until this day, when the leading organisation is the Workers' Educational Club, which meets at 45 Eliot street, w|th Gordon, Ftngold, Michaels, BnellenbSrg, Murphy, Task and a few others as leading members.son ;showjoufiarenaanJeanbau,man;Jescietythebeentairiarch!1899 iInlatcu*IappeThewhlcveaU1mmlt;titlelt;speettwosuppsumiOfBenjlatoiHundreds of Anarohists Here.natbmostScatteral all over Boston and its n horhood are several hundred Anarcl There Is quite a little group amoni Qeramns of UUs cdSy.
