[In H.P.B.’s Scrapbook, Vol. VII, p. 258, there is pasted a brief cutting entitled “Extreme Measures Advocated.” Neither the source, the date, nor the author are stated. It speaks of Charles Sotheran who, declaring himself a labor Socialist, spoke at a mass meeting of strikers and urged them to take extreme measures against the Capitalist exploiters. To this H.P.B. remarked:]
