ment has been buying bonds at prices varying
slightly from day to Say and figured to realize

try rate for yesterday, for example, was for the
I per cents 105.5565: for the 4s, 113.3110, and for
the 58, 1061971. The purchases of bonds for the
five months from April 1 to August 28. on the
1.725 per cent basis, aggregated more than $21.

purchased here. One tender of $1,000,000 bonds

Government bonds were strong yesterday. The
4s of 1925 advanced h per cent, as did also the
2 per cents. It was Eaid In some quarters that

been under contemplation for some time.
¦ Leaving out of the question the peril to the

pointed, out that the continued absorption by the

NEW- YORK. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 11, 1001. -SIXTEEN PAGES .- b , T h. < «s^2Si.ti-.
The committee of eighteen appointed by the
anti-Tammany conference on Monday night to
consider the several lists of mayoralty candi
dates will meet at the Astor House at 4 o'clock
this afternoon. Colonel Willis L. Ogden. chair
man of the committee, issued the call yesterday.
The committee at this meeting will begin the
sifting process. It Is expected that daily meet
ings will be held until such a time as a ticket
is selected for report to ihc general conference.
This committee is Instructed to report back on
or before September is. None of the conferred!
od the committee would gay yesterday when an
agreement might he reached. The Indications
are that the committee will work slowly and
carefully, and it may be several days, or even a
week, before any ticket is agreed upon. It may
be that the committee will report to the general
conference the names of two or more eligtbles for
the nomination of Mayor, and leave the final
selection to the general conference.
All members of this committee who were p.-<ni
yesterday said it would be impossible to foretell
who would be selected to head the .ticket. That
there would be a stronpr fusion ticket all said
was n certainty, hut no one would hazard a pre
diction as »o who would compose it. All those
seen declared themselves satisfied with the con
ference of Monday night, adding that never had
the outlook for success of n fusion ticket been
so bright as at the present moment.
Certain articles were printed yesterday pur
porting to show that Senator I'latt dominated
this committee of eighteen and would foist upon
the fusion forc?s a candidate of his own selec
tion. This was BCOUted by representatives of ali
anti-Tammany organizations. The leaders were
emphatic in saying that the Senator and mem
bers of the Republican organization had played
fair; had suggested no candidate, but had stood
back with the promise of hearty co-oporation In
indorsing any good man named.
"This talk about Senator Platt controlling the
conference is all nonsense," said Colonel Ogden.
"The conference is not controlled by any one.
The. Republicans have never showr any dispo
sition to control or dictate. The appointment of
a committee to handle the lists of candidates
was seen to be the only thing that could be done.
Everybody agreed to it. We had the names of
twenty-eigrht or thirty candidates before us. It
was seen that a body of seventy-one men could
not talk the candidates over and reach a con
clusion as easily as could a committee of eigh
teen. So we appointed that committee, giving
the Citizens Union and the Republicans one
member from each borough because they have
organizations In each borough. The other
bodies in the combination each had organiza
tions only in one borough, nnd so were entitled
to only one representative. Now, when we agree
on a candidate for Mayor it will be a unanimous
choice. There will be no division between the
Platt men and the anti-Platt men. As to who
the candidate will be, everything Is in the afr* 1
Senator Platt was rather amused when he
hr.-.ni thepo stories yesterday. "I am for any
good man that the conferrees select." ho declared.
"That has been my position all the time, and I
have not even taken the position of suggesting.
The Republican organization will work for the
election of the ticxet nominated, but leaves the
selection of candidates to the anti-Tammany
organizations, confident that the ticket named
will be one we can all support with honor and
enthusiasm. It is all a lot of nonsense to pay
that I am running the anti-Tammany confer
ence. I am not interfering in any way. The
thing will work itself out, and the conference
will narrow the candidates down to some de
sirable man. I shall be for any man they nomi
nate, except Coler. These stories that I am in
control of the conference are based on the fact
that some of my friends are members of the
conference. But I have not Interfered, and will
Herman Ridder, leader of the German-Ameri
can Reform Union, had this to say: " Undoubt
edly Senator Platt could control a majority of
the conference should he choose to do so. I be
lieve he will favor an independent Democrat on
a broad. liberal, non-partisan platform, such as
is advocated by the German organizations. We
will stand by John De Witt Warner, urging his
nomination as long as we can* The attacks
upon him are unjust and unwarranted."
Whil«» the committee of eighteen has some
thirty names to struggle with, it is believed that
at th" first meeting fully one-half of these will
be dropped without much discussion. The names
vhlch have been suggested by the various antl-
Tammnnv orgnniz.it ions have hern printed sev
eral times !n The Tribune. Among those more
prominently mentioned, Ashbol p. Fitch, Charles
S. Fairchild and John D. Crlmmlns have de-
Hined to h" considered for any office, and their
names will probably be dropped. John De Witt
Warner, so it was said yesterday, may not re
ceive the support that was originally indicated,
as pome of his supporter? hnve declared In favor
of withdrawing bis name. It is possible. If not
probable, that pome person not on iiny list will
be fleeted, as addition? to the lists in hand are
in order. Edward M. Knnx, was again prom
inently spoken of yesterday. The addition of
District-Attorney Philbin to the list of the
Greater New-York Democracy caused wide
spread comment, and his chances were earnestly
discussed. Seth Low, George Foster Peabody
and George L. Rives are all seriously mentioned
In connection with the nomination.

Albany Pept. I<i (Special).— lieutenant Oover

of Mr. Woodruff, said: "I also have heard that
Justice Giegerich may be nominated, but I doubt
If any one will know positively who it is that

Chicas". S j r>t. 10.-Emma Goldman, the well
knewn anarchist leader and lecturer, was ar
rested in Chicago to-day, and a complaint and
warrant charging: h^r with conspiracy to mur
der President McKinley were secured from
Justice Prindiville. After making her state
ment to Mayor <"arter H. Harrison, Chief
O'Neill and representatives of the press, she
was taken to the annex at the Harrison-st.
police station in a carriage, where, after par
taking of a hearty meal, she was taken to the
bureau of Identification.
Several hundred persons had gathered In front
of the south entrance of the City Hall, all eager
to catch a glimpse of the woman anarchist. To
avoid the crowd, however, it was arranged that
when she left the oflice she was to be taken
from the Laaalle-st. entrance, whence she
hurried into a waiting carriage. Word passed
along the line as soon as the vehicle swung into
Washlngton-st., and a cry of disappointment
went up from a hundred throats. Some attempt
ed to follow, but the horses were whipped up.
and soon the cab, bearing Captain Schuettler
and Emma Goldman, disappeared In the busy
Miss Goldman sent the following telegram
shortly after the arrest:
H. Holstein, 213 Joseph-aye.. Rochester, N. Y.
Arrested. Do -net worry. Will bo out »oon.
Comfort mother. K.
The facts leading up to the arrest of Emma
Goldman have developed as follows: On Satur
day night a telegram reached Chicago from the
Goldman woman, addressed to Albert Verrall,
No. , r ><>S Oakdale-ave., asking if it was true that
the Isaaks and their associates had 1 eea ar
rested by the Chicago police on charges of col
lusion in th-» attempted assassination of Presi
dent McKinley. A few hours later a reply was
e«-nt to Miss Goldman to the effect that the
facts as stated were true and that the [aaaks
and associates were under arrest. It is im
possible to learn whence emanated the telegram
from MIS 3 Goldman or to what point the answer
was sent, although the popular belief is that
Miss Goldman was in St. Louis at that time.
Still, government officers are holding out to the
idea that she was at a point much nearer Buf
falo, or in the city of Buffalo Itself.
In response to the reply from her telegram
sent to Albert Verrall, a messtipe was received
from Miss Goldman to the effect that she would
be in Chicago on Sunday night. A watch was
set on the Verrall house, but no evidence of life
was developed until late on Monday evening,
when an unaccompanied woman approached the
house. Failing to gain admission at the front,
she passed to the side of the house and then to
the rear. She was unsuccessful in securing ad
mission into the place and went away, going
east in Oakdale-ave. to Sheffield -a ye. and down
Sheffield-aye. to No. 303, where she gained ac
cess to the flat building, where Emma Goldman
was arrested to-day.
United States Secret Service operatives are
absolutely positive that no person entered or
came from these premises after this unknown
woman entered there last night until Emma
Goldman was arrested to-day, when a Chicago
city detective scaled a rear wall and, passing
through a window, put her under arrest. Cor
roborative circumstances in connection with the
case, and in consonance with the statement
made by Miss Goldman to the Chicago police
after her arrest, give the following direct chain
of evidence:
Miss Goldman admits she has been in Buffalo,
but sets the dates at variance with police theory.
She says she has met Leon CsolgOßS in Chicago,
and sets the time of their meeting at July 12,
when she says she was starting for a trip to the
Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo. She asso
ciates with this meeting Mr. Isaaks. his family
and their associates, now held under arrest by
the Chicago police. Miss Goldman left Chicago
for .Buffalo on July V 2, over the Michigan Cen
tral road, whose trains start from the Illinois
Central station at Twelfth-st. and the Lake
C. H. McMurray. a travelling salesman, of the
responsible position with Franklin MacVeagh &
Co., wholesale grocers, has testified to the Chi
cago police, as to circumstances under which, on
July 12, in the vicinity of the Illinois Central
depot, he overheard a conversation that out
lined a conspiracy having for its object the as
sassination of President McKinley, J. Plerpont
Morgan and John D. Rockefeller. .Mr. McMur
ray has since identified the photographs of
Czolgosz as resembling one of the men he saw,
and the other party to the conversation he in
sists answers the description of the man of a
bushy beard, who Is said to have preceded
Czolgosz in the reception line and to have pro
tected him until the shots were fired and then
to have disappeared.
These, circumstances suggest that the plot
for the assassinate of President M<Kin
ley was developed In Chicago, and that the
conspirators separated on the date mentioned,
because no trace of any of them being together
since that date has been discovered. One thing
that developed' here to-day, however, is a sug
gestion' that Emma Goldman and Leon Czolgosz

Washington. Sept. K».— There is good reason
for saying tftat the arrest of Emma Goldman
in Chicago and of Maggio in the far off Terri
tory of New-Mexico foreshadows a movement
that virtually has been decided upon by the
Federal government looking to the most search
ing investigation of the theory that the murder
ous assault o n the President was the result of
an anarchist plot Attorney-General Knox. So
licitor-General Richards and other officials of
the Department of Justice deny that they are
working on the belief that Czol S osz was the
agent of organized anarchists who plotted to
take the President's life. At the same time, it is
interesting to observe that almost coincident
with the return of Attorney-General Knox to
Washington from the bedside of the wounded
President the arrests mentioned were made,
when ar any time in the last forty-eight hours
the persons now wriggling in the strong clutch
of the law could have been arrested. was
known here as long ago as last Saturday even
ing that the arrest of Maggio and of the Gold
man wotT\n had been decided upon, provided
the results of tho hurried Investigation of the
Secret Service Rureau of the Treasury Depart
ment were approved by the members of the
Cabinet. It is, therefore, fair to assume that the
arrest of these two suspects would not have
been mad-* had not the Attorney-General given
his assent this morning.
What evidenc- the officials now h.xre against
the man nnd woman who languish in durance
vile ro far apart to connect them directly with
the murderous assault on President McKinley is
not now known. None of the officiate here could
be Induced to discuss th- ir <;.ses to-d;iy, al
though Chief Wtlkle, of the Secret Service, who
returned to his office yesterday, said to-night
that he wanted to got Maggio in his grasp long
enough to put that suspect through a rigid ex
amination. Biaggto's arrest was ordered last
Saturday night. He wi.s then thought to be in
Mobile, it is confidently expected in well in
formed circles here that following these two ar
rests other suspects scattered widely over thf
country will [„ path-- red in by Secret Service
agents. It is not thought that the government
will make n n >- poise over the apprehension of
any of the individuals suspected of connection
with the conspiracy against the President* life.
The government's policy in this Important move
ment will be carried out with as little publicity
.is possible, as it is not desire! to bring to OMWO
.•irrested the notoriety so earnestly coveted. If.
however, the conspiracy theory is proved
through the preliminary arrests now contem
plated there will be a wholesale gathering in of
anarchists all over the country.
Authority to do this la ample in existing
stututea and Is based on BecttOna 5,808 and &900,
United States Revised statutes, as follows:
Sec. .".TiOS — If two or more persons conspire
to Injure, oppress, thteat.ti or intimidate any
citlxen in the free exercise or enjoyment of any
rluht or privilege secured to him by the COO
tlon. <r lows <>f the United States, or be
cause of his having so exercised the same; or if
twn or more persons go in disguise on the high
way or on the premlaes of another, with Intent to
prevent or hinder hi* free exercise or enjoyment
Of any right or privilege so securr-d. they shill
be fined not more than .<.">. <»< X) and imprisoned
not more than f^n years; and shall, moreover.
be thereafter ineligible to any office or place Of
h< nor. profit or trust created by the constitution
or laws of the United States.
Sec. .">.."><>!> If in the act of violating any
provision In either of the two prere<v.:iir sections
any other felony or misdemeanor be committed.
the offenders shall be punished for the same
with such punishment aa is attached to such
felony or misdemeanor by 'he laws of the State
In which the offence Is committed.
The foregoing statutes were cited to-dny both
by Attorney-General Knox and Solicitor-General
Richards, as affording abundant scope for the
fuHe««t. freest and most vigorous action by the
Federal authorities against all anarchists sus
pected of the least complicity In the plot ; gainst
the President's life. Whatever may be decided
finally as to whether or not CxotgpM «<h.ill be
tried by the courts Of New-York or by the Fed
eral tribunals, it is settled that everybody ar
rested as a suspect will be dealt with by the
Federal courts as provided by the statutes

Buffalo, Sept. 10.— The Mllburn house, where
the President has been sin. he was removed
from the exposition hospital, has been given up
entirely to the requirements of the patient and
tit attendants, and Mr. Mill. urn and his family
have taken quarters elsewhere. When the shoot-
Ing occurred Mr. Mllburn placed every facility
of his house at the service of the President, and
the regular occupants restricted their Quarters
to accommedate the sudden demands. Hut the
growing requirements of the case— n6t in its
seriousness, but in the extent of attendance, the
essentials of quiet, and the wish to give : the
President and his wife the amples tcomforts in
such an ordeal— have led to the house being
placed at the disposal of the President and those
about him.
President M'Kinley's physicians yesterday expressed the opinion that he is
practically out of danger unless complications, of which there is little fear, set
in. The 9 a. m. official bulletin said his condition was "eminently satisfactory.*'
but in conversation the doctors made more positive statements. The President
took food by natural means for the first time since he was shot.
Dr. Mcßurney said no trouble was apprehended from the bullet in the body,
which the President might carry the remainder of his life.
Vice- President Roosevelt left Buffalo for his home at Oyster Bay, Senator
Hanna started for Cleveland and Judge Day for Canton. Secretary Hay arrived

Buffalo. Sept. 10.— Late to-night there was a
slight scare at the Mllburn house, caused by the
protracted visit of the consulting physicians,
who remained almost two hours, and this was
Increased by the announcement in the official
bulletin issued just before midnight, that a
slight irritation of the exterior wound, discov
ered only to-night, had made necessary the
opening of a few stitches of the wound.
As explained in the bulletin which all the doc
tors signed, this irritation was attributed to the
fact that a small fragment of the President's
coat had hern carried Into the body by the bul
let, and. although this foreign substance was
r* moved, a slight disturbance developed which ¦
made the opening of the wound necessary. The !
doctors seek to allay ail apprehension by the j
positive statement that this Incident cannot j
give rise to other complications, and their j
frankness in giving the news to the public
leaves no reason to question their entire good \
faith. ' . ;
The further fact communicated In the bulletin j
that the President was now well enough to be- }
gin taking nourishment through the mouth in j
the form of pure beef Juice was gratifying. The i
most positive assurances were given that the I
only effect might be to delay the healing of the !
wound slightly. The irritation was not in any t
way the result even of a suggestion of blood j
poisoning, and the physicians declared over •
their own signatures that it could not result in j
complications. Several of the stitches were |
taken out, and after a thorough antiseptic wash- j
ing of the inflamed tissue the wound was again
sewed up. • No ¦ anaesthetics were necessary.
Considerable delay was caused by the fact that
a certain dressing desired by the surgeons was
not in the house, and it was necessary to send
into the city for it. The first time the mes
senger returned he did not leave what was
wanted, and he had to make another trip.
After the bulletin was issued Secretary Cor
telyou and Mr. Mllburn came to the press tent
to dispel any alarm that might have arisen with !
positive assurances of the unimportance of the |
incident Secretary Cortelyou announced that j
there would not be another consultation until ]
morning. After this all was quiet at the Mil
burn house. Dr. Rlxey and Dr. Wasdin re
mained on duty throughout the night.
Buffalo, Sept. 10.— Mrs. McKinley took a drive
this afternoon, accompanied by Mrs. Mc-
Williams. _
Baltimore, Sept. 10. — Miss Grace MacKenzie, '
of this city, a graduate of the Woman's Hospital j
Nurses' School of Philadelphia, and who has '
served at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, started |
last night In a special car of the regular evening j
train for Buffalo, to nurse the President. Miss
MacKenzie was summoned by. a telegram from ,
Dr. Rixey. several of whose cases »he has ¦
nursed. She has a high reputation as a nurse, i
particularly in fever cases.
Buffalo. Sept. tO.-The corps of eminent sur
geons and physicians in attendance on Presi
dent McKlnley to-day committed themselves
without reservation to the opinion that their
Patient was practically out of danger and that
only the possibility of complications threaten**
nls life. They did not give assurance of his
recovery collectively over their signatures in an
official bulletin. That was more than could be
asked In reason. Scientific men. .no matter how
j strong their convictions might be. could not be
expected to assume the grave responsibility of
officially proclaiming the certainty of the re
covery of a man lying on a bed of pain with a
bullet hole in his stomach. But they went a lon
v ay toward It Individually and separately. Each
of them, with the exception of Dr. Rlxey who
eld not leave the Mllburn house. p,aced himself
squarely on record, not privately to the friends
of the President, but publicly through the
agency of the press, that the danger point had
Passed and that the President would survive.
"Of course, we shall all feel easier when a week
has passed." said Dr. Mcßurney. "We would
like to see every door locked and double locked,
but the danger from possible complications is
now very remote."
The little piece of lead In the muscles of tfce
back is giving the physicians no concern what
ever. Unless it should prove troublesome to ths
President later on. he mill probably carry this
grim souvenir of the anarchist with him to the
' nd of his days. The doctors say that, once en
cysted. it can do no harm. Thousands of men
are to-day walking the' earth in perfect health
with much larger chunks of lead In their bodies.
i The X-ray machine is ready for Instant use
; however, and if there is the slightest inflamma
tion or pain in the vicinity of the bullet, an
operation will be performed.
The Vice-President, members of the Cabinet.
Senator Hanna and the other friends of the-
President. who have remained here to await the
Issue, accepted the verdict of the physicians to
day as practically conclusive, and there waa an
exodus of these who considered their presence
| no longer necessary. Vice- President Roosevelt
started this evening for his home at Oyster
Bay. Senator Hanna returned to Cleveland on
business, to be gone two days, and Controller
Daves went back to Washington to-night. Abne
McKinley. the President's brother, will remain a
few days longer, but hi* family have returned
home, and Mrs. Duncan and several other rela
tives of the President have gone. Judge Day.,
long and closely associated with the President.!
returned to Canton this afternoon. The five
members of the Cabinet still here will remain a
few days, rather as friends who have been gflg»
mately associated with the President for years
than as public officials.
The President's physicians have been Im
pressed with his remarkable recuperative powers
and the rapidity of his improvement. Ordinarily
an incision for such an operation as was p.,,
formed on him should heal within three weeks
but in the President's case It may be «ron»
enough for him to be moved a little sooner. Ths
President will be taken direct to Washington as
soon as It is safe to move him.
In the sickroom many evidences of the Presi
dent's Improvement were apparent. The Presi
dent himself began m show confidence In his '•
ability to care for himself, and from time to
time he would carefully turn and gain a.
more restful position. Yesterday he took th»
precaution to ask if he might be permitted to
move, but to-day he changed his position of his
own volition, without difficulty. The nurses
naturally observed with care these evidences of
growing vigor and courage, and were ready
to see that there was no undue tax on the Pres-
ident's strength and no straining of the wound, i
These slight movements from side to side are all
that he has attempted thus far. and it is too
early yet to think of his sitting up ih bed or o #
any other marked use of his muscles.
A most important development of the day wa#
the private determination reached among those
in charge of the case that food rhould be ad
ministered to the patient by the mouth.
Not since the shooting had a morsel of
food been given to the President by natural
means, but the drain on his system has been met
by dissolved foods administered by injection.
This has been a period of four days of fasting
