London, Sept. 10. 1 a. m.— There Is no abate
mciit' ¦ I public int«re«=t in the bulletins from
Buffalo. The President's brave struggle for life
and " .- dangers to which all government is ex
rc=e«l from disorder"-'' caprices of anarchists
remain the chief themes at the press and plat
form. When tho first tidings of Czolgosz's
crime •nere received J more than one Eng

rot been torn limb from limb by the mob, and
these advocates of era reprisals urged that
there could"beTir>;more^erfectiTe-TT?*thod of pre
venting 'similar anarchistic attacks upon rulers.
The assassin's own confession that Emma Gold
man's oratory burnedin his memory and incited
him to commit the orlme has convinced many
that her arrest and trial as at. accessory would
be more tisf-ful than the act of mob savagery
would have 'b"eenT ~ ~ !*"T. * -*" *"•? "T^ * ;
Stress is laid by the press here and on the
Continent upon the impunity with which an
archists in America have been allowed to hold
meetings and to print Incendiary appeals to
evil passions. The.. English practice has not
been essentially Al|tern|t. Anarchists, as a
prominent Scotland Yard, official has admitted

license "here as^-in" CHica.go~or~ Paters : Scotland

London. Sept. 9.— "The feeling of the British
financial world," aid -Lori Rothschild this

well and everything come out all right. Hence
the rise of American securities on the Stock
Exchange above parity." *
Asked if he though : the financial condition
of the United States was Ftrong enough to with
stand the worst contingency, Lord Rothschild
We are not Coaling with hypotheses. We
think President '-MeKinley will live, and that is
sufficient. To-day's rise is due to a paMral
belief in that and to no concerted action on the
part of financial leaders.
Lord Rothschild expressed sorrow for the at

Washington. Sept, 9.— Second Assistant Po?t
master-General Shallenberger to-day summarily
cancelled- the contract of a mail carrier for ex
pressing satisfaction over the shooting of Presi
dent McKiniey. The name of the person who
v.as thus dealt with is Charles F. Cortright, and
he had a contract for carrying the mail -between
HoiTfr. Cortland County, N. V., and Spaffrrd in
Onondagra County. The information concerning
his offence came to the Postoffice Department
through the postmaster at Homer, who in
closed affidavits from four citizens of the place
confirming his report. It appears that when
Cortright first received 'announcement of the
newe of the attempt upon the President's life
he remarked with an oath that he was" "Glad of
It," and added that the President should have
been killed years |« -"Rearing of- this remark.
three citizens of the town called upon,Cortright
and asked him if the report was correct, and he
replied that it was. Upon receiving this in
formation, duly supported by. the oath 3of the
citizens -who had "heard this statement made,
Geneia 1 Ehallenberger took prompt steps to
cancel Cortright's contract upon the ground that
a person capable cf.such sentiments is not a fit
custodian of the malls of the government.
Following Is the full text of a letter General
Eballenberger wrote to Cort right •»•• sureties:
Mr. Michael Murphy and Mr. F. M. Briggs,. Homer,
Gentleman: It has been shown to this office by

mail on Route 7.880. from Spaff ord to Homer, N. "i ..
expressed his appreciation of and satisfaction over
the shooting of President McKUiley. This depart
ment believes that the transportation of the malls
Is unsafe in the hands of a person who would de
liberately gloat over the attempt of an assassin to
take the life of the Chief Executive of this coun
try, and is not willing to longer entrust the mails
to the said Charles F. Cortright. — !
You, as his sureties in. his contract,' are therefore
hereby called upon to Immediately -assume the

DOE:- NOT SHOW INSANITY
NEUROLOGISTS THINK PHOTOGRAPH OF
: CZOLGOSZ INDICATES RATHER A
THIRST FOR NOTORIETY.
The ; official photograph of Czolgosz, which
was printed In The Tribune yesterday, caused
considerable discussion among physicians who
have made a special study of the criminal mind.
It wns the general opinion of leading neurol
ogists and alienists who were seen by Trib
une reporters that the would-be assassin of
President McKinley if? not insane, but merely
a product of anarchistic tendencies.
Dr. J. Leonard Corning, a well known neu
rologist, of No. S3 West Thlrty-eighth-st., who
attracted considerable attention as an alienist
expert in the Barker- CKse, In which he
testified a* to the insanity of Barker, and who
i has written several works on neurology and
j nervous diseases, told a Tribune reporter it
j was his opinion that it was Czolgosz's thirst
J for notoriety, and not Insanity, which caused
i the young Polish-American to commit the
! crime of last Friday. After Dr. Corning had
> made a close study of the published portrait
i of the anarchist, he was asked:
j " "Would you say that Czolgosz was Insane?"
j "No; not In any legal or generally accepted
j use of the term." -
j "Do you ascribe any especial importance to
'. the shape of the skull as a direct or indirect
' evidence of insanity?"
j "Certainly not, except where the deviation
j from the normal, both in size and shape, is of
¦ the most exaggerated kind."
I "Is there not a popular belief that even minor
deviations from . the normal skull have a bear
: Ing on the mental status of the individual?"
"There is. but the proposition has been dls
j proved over and over again."
r. "In the photograph of Czolgosz, do you notice
any pronounced asymmetry .of the skull or
i "No; nothing marked."
. SUSCEPTIBLE TO SUGGESTION, r
£ ."Do you regard this man as peculiarly sus
ceptible'to suggestions, from others, from your
reading of his history In The Tribune?"
"Yes, I do, so much. so that it would be strong
presumptive evidence in my mind that he had
.been In collusion with others, in the prepetra
tlon of Tills crime." . , - .. -•¦ :
.. "In view of the fact; that there are so many
-.weak- minded and criminally disposed persons,
I in the community, do you not believe that the
circulation of inflammatory and criminal litera
: ture should be suppressed by statutory enact
ment?"- •¦- - -•-.. - -.
•"""I most emphatically do. And for the same
reason, the holding of public meetings for the
¦ purpose of suggesting an'! inciting to criminal
acts should be ruthlessly prohibited." .'•-•,•
. "What do you think will ]be . the defence ,of
this man when arraigned in court?"
"I think that it will be insanity, and it Js
4 -possible that -this line of ; defence was
agreed upon before he committed the crime,*' '¦ r
,. "Towhatdo you ascribe his present bravado?"

hung a bass-relief of Marat, with an old fash
ioned flintlock. pistol, th« barrel wound with :
copper wire, swinging beneath it. On the wall : ;
opposite h«r was a blackboard with anarchlstc :
placards and notices on it.
Beyond the bar were two or three round tables
and a beer stained piano. Then came another j
room, with a long table lined with chairs. Thera ;

John Most or ohi Justus Schwab has pounded
the table with a beer glass for a gavel while;
Emma Goldman has held forth on the iniquity

and that added interest to th Queries. "Poor

TITUS ON THE ALERT.
Captain Titus, of th- Detective Bureau, called
his men. together yesterday morning and read ;,
them ¦ a long statement, after which the men ;,
started out to watch the anarchists* meeting
places. There were three reasons for this -^
vigilance— the hunt for Emma Goldman, the :
rumor of a plot against Vice- President Roose
velt and the belief that there might be an "end"
in this city to the attempted assassination of
the President, caused by the request from th-» .
Buffalo authorities for the seizure of the trunk £
of the man Shutz. The trunk was found ac
the Lutheran Mission House. No. 1:1 State-st..
and was taken to Police Headquarters but M
will not be opened here. District Attorney "
Philbin told Captain Titus that the trunk must
be opened by the Erie County ofllcials.
John Most yesterday gave a little Impetus to
the rumor of a plot against Colonel Roosevelt.
}[- went to his headquarters, in the saloon at
No CD Gold-st.. about 1 o'clock, and. after
opening his mail, which to Most's evident sat- -
lsfaction Included a money order for *-. ate
luncheon and talked anarchy While grease
dripped on his waistcoat from a piece of meat
held about three inches from his mouth. Most
Sa *'What good would it do to kill McKinley,^
unless Roosevelt' was killed, too? Both must v->-»v ->-» >

Then he looked most benignantly over hi.*
spectacles at a black haired, unshaven anar
chist at another table, and the other man
nodded his head arid said, "Yes, both.'
MOST RAVES A BIT.
Most ate in silence for a minute or two, and -
then suddenly put down his knife and fork and
grew fiery. "These people who say they are
sorry.' hi said, "they are hypocrites, hypo
crites. They are not sorry. They are glad.
They know it In their hearts, but they are
afraid to* say it. ' Glldermeister was not afraid,

"Where is the law? This is nonsense. It makes

laU ' AN ITALIAN REHEARSAL.
The Italian anarchists In their headquarters
in Bleecker-st. talked gayly of the crime yester
day. They are a festive lot. and have pool and
billiard tables, as well as a saloon. Two of
them were playing "pin pool" yesterday after
noon, while a third kept the score on the rail cf
the table. The game did not proceed rapidly,
as the men stopped frequently to talk an I
argue. In the middle of the game both men put
their cues on the table to have their hands frea
for the argument. Then, after a swift exchange
of words, one of the men draped his handker
chief over his hand. and. walking up to bis OP
ponent, offered to shake hands. Both men
j laughed, while several others who had come ia
applauded, and the game was resumed.
MAGISTRATE BRANN HAS A PLAN. ¦
Henry a. Brann. police magistrate, gave Tent
yesterday to his views about th« attempt on th»
life of President McKinley. and proposed this plnn
whereby anarchy In the United States may MS
stamped out: ,
When Congress meets it should pass a law bar
ring all immigration from the south of Europe,
from which our anarchists come, for ten years. At
the expiration of that period, still with re
strictions at our ports of entry upon immigration,
persons in Europe -ring to come to th« United
States should bo required to make application to
our commissioners abrnad. Each application
should be investigated rigidly, and if the applicant
is found to be an anarchist or of extreme an rial
lstlc views he should be denied the right to coma
to this- country.
Congress should pass a law requiring govern
ment officials to keep a sharp watch on people
suspected of anarchistic views, and punishing such
offenders severely. They might be held to ba>
guilty .of treason. Each State should pass a law
similar to he proposed national law. Then th*
'.police of: each county and each city should keep
a strict watch upon Immigrants suspected of an
archistic tendencies, keeping their records, M as
to detect the first sign of any desire to upset es
tablished government by dastardly and cowardly
acts, such as the attempt to kill President Me-
Kinley,' If discovered they should be Immediately
