14 ANARCHISTS ROUNDED
UP IN NEW YORK CITY.
Officers Believe They Have Etidence
to Prove Prisoners Planned' to
Assassinate President in
RAID MADE ON QUARTERS
Two of Anarchists Admit They Were
on Way to Boston. Experts
Studying Strange Machine
New York, Feb. 23.-Fourteen
members of the Spanish branch of the
Industrial Workers of the World, were
arrested by secret service men and
members of the -police bomb squadron
in two raids here late today. While
they are charged formally with hav
ing seditious literature in their pos
session government agents claimed to
have evidence they were hatching a
Frank Francisco and Edward J.
Dowd, of the secret service, as well
as New York detectives who assisted
them in the raids, declared they had
obtained evidence which would be
used in an attempt to prove the pris
oners had planned to assassinate
President Wilson in Boston tomorrow,
but this assertion was discredited by
Capt. Peter Ruban, of the secret ser
vice, who directed the raids.
According to the police the two
Philadelphia men who frankly ad
mitted they were anarchists, stopped
here on their way to Boston, and in
tended to go to that city tonight.
The grave nature of the alleged plot
and the imminence of the attempt to
carry it into execution, it was de
clared, made it essential the iiien be
imprisoned at once.
After being questioned at police
headquarters where their finger prints
were taken, the prisoners were locked
up without bail pending arraignment
before a United States c.ommissioner
Meanwhile mechanical experts have
been assigned to assemble a compli
cated machine found dismantled in
one of the rooms raided. The secret
service agents said they. were at a
loss to explain its purpose. Trans
lators were put to work on a mass of
papers and pamphlets seized.
One of the houses raided had been
under police surveillance for several
clays as a' result of meetings held
there, it was said.
Eleven of the prisoners, when book
ed at the police station, gave New
York addresses, two said they lived in
Philadelphia, and a third said his
home was in Elizabeth, N. J. All the
men, it was said, are Spanish aliens
who have come to the United States
during the past three years.
According to the secret service men,
a youth of 25 who gave the name of
Jose Grau, is the chief organizer of
the Spanish I. W. W. here, and is the
editor of a radical Spanish newspaper
published in New York. In the I. W.
W. organization, it was said, he is
known as Armoldo Capatena.

ENGINE TROUBLE CAUSE
Machine in Attempting Landing
Strikes Tree in Outskirts of
Miami, Fla., Feb. 23.-The naval
dirigible A-236 returning to Key West
from a flight to Tampa and Jackson
ville struck a tree in the outskirts of
Miami early today and is believed to
be a complete loss. Ensign D). P.
Campbell, pilot, and Chief Quarter
master J. H. Collier, the only persons
aboard, were rescued unharmed.
The dirigible had been forced to at
tempt a landing because of engine
;rouble which developed after 37 hours
in the air in which Ensign Campbell
was trying to make a new continuous
flight record for dirigibles of this
type. It was one of the oldest in gov
ernment service and was 184 feet
The A-236 left Key West at 2:45
Friday afternoon and reached Tampa
by 10 o'clock that night. From there
the big machine sailed on to St.
A~ugustine getting there about 3
D'clock Saturday morning. Continu
ing northward the dirigible reached
Jacksonville in an hour and then
started back to Key West. Miami
was reached just before 4 o'clock Sun
The engine, a 125 horsepower Cur
iss motor, had developed trouble
within twelve hours after leaving
Key WVest and by the time Miami had
been reached it failed completely.
Ensign Campbell wvas forced to seek
landing andl in coming down struck
itree. Men from the naval air sta
~ion here were called out andl succeed
al in getting the twvo members of the
lirigible crew safely out of the wreck
It was supposedl the A-236 was the
sig dirigible which had been eenn in
rarious parts of Florida since Fridlay
md~ which cauiedi much speculation,
Is army andl navy officials saidi they
new nothing of its intended pifiht.
rEarly Saturday morning, a big diri
rible, sup~posedi to be the same one,
ireld over St. Augustine as though
;eeking a landing place, and then
leadled south after one of the crewv
houted through a megaphone that it
