PRICE TWO CENTS. THE PRESIDENT PASSES THE DANGER POINT EMMA GOLDMIK. IS UNDER ARREST Captured in Chicago, the High Priestess of Anarchy Is Defiant and Disclaims Knowledge of Czolgosz She Does Admit Having Met Him, However, but Claims That Nothing Can Be Proved Against Her. Chicago, Sept. 10. —Emma Goldman, the high priestess of anarchy, whose speeches, it is claimed, turned to fire the brain of Leon Czolgosz, the would-be assassin of the president, •was arrested here shortly before noon to day. Her manner was defiant as she was le-i Into the office of the chief of police, but she disclaimed all knowledge of Czol gosz and his crime save that she admitted having met him here July 12. "Do you know that your words are what Czolgosz says stirred him to shoot the president?" she was asked. "I do not; I never advocated violence. I scarcely knew the man. I was leaving Rochester via Buffalo when Czolgosz had a f«*w words with me. He said he had heard me lecture at some memorial hall in Cleveland last May and that he wanted to know me. He said he knew I was in Chicago and looked m» up. I scarcely re member anything about him save that his complexion was light." "Then how do you know that this man Is the one who tried to kill the president?" "Oh," with a shrug of the shoulders. "I gues3t>d that from what the newspapers say." ••Oh. the Fool!" "What did you think when you heard! that an attempt to kill the president had i been made?" the woman asked. With a wave of her hands and another shrug of her shoulders she answered, dis dainfully: "I thought "Oh, you fool.'" • The prisoner had been growing more and I more excited, although she made an cvi- I dent effort to control herself. In this she finally succeeded and launched into a dis course on the teachings of anarchy. She declared that anarchy did not teach men to do the act which has made Czolgosz despised and hated the world over. "We work against the system, and edu cation is our watchword," she said. It was early last June when 1 came to Chicago to visit the Isaak family," she continued, in answer to interrogations. On the night of July 12 Mr. Isaak was not iii the house. CiolftOMz'a Call. "The bell rang and I went to the door. J The man who, 1 learn through the news- ! papers, was Czolgosz stood there. He I eaid he wanted to see me. I was about to ] catch the Nickel Plate train, as 1 and Mr. j Isaak's daughter were about to go to Rochester. He went to the Rock Island depot with us, but I was so busy taking leave of my friends that I scarcely noticed him. It was not a time when one would want to make new friends. At the depot 1 had the few words with him of which I have told. That was all there ever was between us. "I am an anarchist—a student of social ism—but nothing I ever said to Leon Czolgosz knowingly would have led him to do the act which startled everybody Friday." "Not even In your lectures?" put in a reporter. "He says your words set his brain on fire." "Am I accountable because some crack brained person puts a wrong construction on my words? Leon Czolgosz, lam con vinced, planned the deed unaided and en tirely alone. There is no anarchist ring which would help him. There may be anarchists who would murder, but there are also men in every walk of life who sometimes feel the impulse to kill. '•May Have Been Inspired by Me." "I do not know, surely, but I think Czolgosz was one of those down-trodden men who see all the misery which the rich inflict upon the poor, and who think of it. who brood over it, and then, in despair, resolve to strike a great blow, as they think, for the good of their fellow men. But that Is not anarchy. Czolgosz (the Russian woman pronounced the name with the greatest ease) may have been inspired by me, but if he was, he took the wrong way of showing it." The police are not entirely satisfied with Miss Goldman's story. When Cap tain Schuettler and Detective Hertz dis covered her at the home of one Norria, at 303 Sheffield avenue, she denied her iden tity. "Hello, Miss Goldman," said the captain as he entered the parlor. "Are you glad to ace me?" Pretends to Be a Swede. "I'm not Miss Goldman. I'm a Swedi&h •woman and my name is Lena Larson," answered the anarchist, endeavoring to imitate a Swedish dialect. "All right. I speak Swedish myself," said the police officer, as he poured out a few questions in the Norse tongue. Mies Goldman did not answer him, affecting to misunderstand. Detective Hertz mean- while had been investigating and had found a pen with the name Emma Gold man engraved on it. "What does this mean?" shouted Cap tain Schuettler, holding the telltale article before its owner's eyes. "It means that the game is up," she said. She then admitted her identity ful ly and accompanied the officers to the of fice of Chief O'Neill. Miss Goldman's arrest was in answer to a request sent to the various police chiefs of the country from Buffalo. Chief O'Neill telegraphed Chief BuM of hi* capture and will hold the prisoner until the Buffalo official takes charge of her. Captain Colleran, chief of detectives, has sworn out a warrant charging Emma Goldman with conspiracy to assassinate President McKicley. The warrant gives as Miss Goldman's co-coospirators Abraham Isaaks, Maurice Isaaks, Clemence Pfeutzer, Hippolite Havel, Henry Travaglio, Alfred Schneider, Julia Mechame, Marie Isaaks and Marie Isaaks, Jr. All but Miss Goldman were arrested some days ago. The women were ■ allowed to go, but the men were held without bail and are now in jail. C. J. Xorris, at whose home Miss. Goldman was captured, was arrested later. Miss Goldman was taken. from the chief's I office to the Woman's Annex of the Harri | son street station where she will spend j the night. She will, according to present j plans, have a hearing to-morrow morning. j While being led to the carriage which was waiting to take her to the lockup, Miss Goldman for the first time lost her self possession. She broke dawn and cried and for a • moment - was merely a weak woman in distress. She recovered quick ly and by the time her foot touched the carriage step she was again Emma Gold ) man, the high "priestess of anarchy. I — EMMA IX LOVE Worm Letters Written by MUs Gold man to Havel. Special to The Journal. Chicago, Sept. 10.—The letters of Emma | Goldman to Hippolyte Havel, one of the I anarchists now under arrest for complic : ity in the plot to kill President McKinley, I were translated yesterday. The letters j were found in the Newberry avenue house i when Havel was arrested. They show her jto have been on familiar terms with ! Havel. Though they failed to reveal any ; conspiracy, they showed that Miss Gold j man was very much In love with Havel. | There are over thirty letters, all written in German, and couched in endearing j language. They frequently refer to Havel i as "Putzy," and are signed "Swetfuschka," j which means "Sweet Little One." On sev i eral occasions she sent him money, and expressed regret that the amount was not larger, but that on account of the activ !ity of the police in the eastern cities where she was lecturing the proceeds were small. Accompanying one letter was $7, of which she requested that $1 be paid to Isaak, the balance to be kept for him self. In this letter she said she was sorry the she could not send more, but she had made only $10 that week. If her "Putzy" was only with her, she said, she could do better. The letters were sent from Philadelphia, Rochester and New York. In them she tells her lover of her troubles with the police. She tells of having to address a crowd from the steps of the city hall in Philadelphia because the police had requested the owners of halls not to rent them to her. She refers frequently to the nervous strain which she is under in speaking to an audience, and wishing her "Putzy" was near her. Prince Kropotkin, she asserts, cleared $750 on his lecture in New York city. When the police discovered the nature of the letter no attempt was made to keep a literal translation of them, as the sub ject of anarchy is never mentioned, nor anything that would implicate her in any conspiracy. "THEY CAN PROVE XOTHIMJ" Emnia Travels for a !Vew Yorlc Wholesale House. St. Louis, Sept. 10.—It has been learned that Emma Goldman held eight confer ences last Friday and Saturday with St. Louis anarchists in the saloon of Ernst Kurzenknabe at No. 201 South Third street. Mr. Kurzenknabe says that Emma Goldman came here Thursday night from Cincinnati where she had made only a brief sojourn. He says that she departed for Chicago Saturday night after still another conference with St. Louis friends at Tony Faust's. One of the two letters which Miss Gold man received at the St. Louis postofflce Saturday was from New York. It con tained a check from a wholesale house there for which Miss Goldman is travel ing. When Emma Goldman came into the rendezvous Saturday morning Kurzen knabe showed her the newspapers rela ting the circumstances of President Mc- Kinley's shooting and stating that she was accused of being implicated in the crime. She laughed aloud. "Lets sea them prove what they al lege," she said. "I have a notion to go straight to one of the newspaper offices," she is quoted as saying, '"or to the police and ask them what they want of me. I may go to Buffalo and brave it through there. Why what can they do? They can prove nothing." CZOLrGOSZ IN DETROIT Acquaintance of the Family ThtnUs Aasallant Was Born There. -Detroit, Sept. 10.—From 1874 to 1875 the family of Leon Czolgosz lived in Detroit, and former neighbors assert that Leon was born here in the summer of 1874. A search of old city directories resulted in locating the Czolgosz family at 141 Ben ton street in 1874. Inquiry in this neigh borhood developed several people who had known the family. J. J. Lorkowaki, a prominent Polish saloonkeeper, lived across from the Czolgosz family on Ben ton street and knew the father well. He is sure that the boy born in the Benton street house in 1874 was Leon. Lorkowski says that Czolgosz moved to Posen, Mich., near Alpena, in 1875, going later to Al pena. If this information is correct Leon Czolgosz is 27 years of age instead of 28, as he asserts. When this was pointed out to Lorokowski. who is a very intelli gent man, he said that many Polish boys did not know their age and he presumed Czolgosz was not sure of his. If Leon was born in Alpena. as has been thought, he is not over 26 years of age. as the family did not move there until 1876. "<A REGULAR DEVIL." Leon's Father Prophesied Hla Son Would Be Hanged. Detroit, Mich., Sept. 10.—The News this afternoon prints an interview with Albert Lemanski, an aged Pole, who was a neighbor of the Ciolgosz family when they lived la tbis city, and for eight years »üb • i TUESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBEK 10, 1901. sequently. The old man is quoted as say ing: This I^eon Czolgosz was a regfdlar devil. He gave his father no end of trouble. The old iolks were licking him with a strap all the time, but on the whole it did no good. Mrs. Czolgosz thought Leon was crazy. He was bright in his books, but indolent. Paul Czol gosz, the father, always predicted that Leon would die ou the gallows. His words, were: "Leon, if I don't knock it out of you with a strap, you'll swing some day." L<eon was a vicious boy. He used to abuse the horses if he was angry, and he delighted In torturing animals around tne farm. When given a severe drubbing he never cried. The boy was a pervert, with little sense of right or wrong. GOLDMAN EXTRADITION Lawyers See Difficulties tv the Way. Chicago, Sept. 10.—It is the opinion of several lawyers that Misa Goldman can not be extradited >for trial in New York unless she and Czolgosz are charged with an offense under the federal statutes. The suggestion that the would-be assassin must be tried under the state laws of New- York for assault with iutent to kill would, it is said, preclude the possibility of Miss Goldman's being extradited as an acces sory before the fact, as her alleged incen diary statements were not made in New York and she is not a fugitive from justice from that state. It is said, however, that, she and Czol gosz might be charged with an offense under section 5,508 of the federal statutes. which fixes a ten-year term of imprison ment and a $5,000 fine for two or more persons who conspire to injure any citizen in the exercise of any right secured to him by the constitution and laws of the United States. The enforcement of this statute against Miss Goldman t and Czol gosz would, it is said, permit 6f the for mer's extradition from any state. FEDERAL JURISDICTION Czolromz May Be T*rled,in a I'nlted States Court. Special to The Journal. Washington. Sept. 10.—Officials of the department of justice say it is quite possi ble that the government may take the cus tody of Czolgosz and that he may be tried in a federal cour;. In this event he is likely to suffer a penalty much more se vere than that which would be imposed by the state laws of New York. Attorney General Knox was in consultation with Solicitor General Richards for several hours discussing this matter. The solic itor general is convinced, after examining the authorities, that the government has jurisdiction, though the attorney general, while he admits he has not made a study of the question. Is inclined to doubt. Sec retary Root is quoted aa agreeing that the federal courts have jurisdiction over the prisoner. ■ . ■ - . ■ f BEFORE- THK 5H0T5 ..;,..... ♦•We Can't Get Near Him Here," Was Said.

He and a confederate, a tall, thin man, who she thinks had a scar on his face, were pressing their way through the crowd. Czolgosz had a white cloth around his hand and she remarked to her husband that she did not believe that his hand was hurt, as he handed it In a care less manner, but thought him a pick pocket. She heard one of them.say: ' "Tihis is too much for us. We can't get near him from here." PLOT AGAINST ROOSEVELT Johann Mont on Hand With His Quota of Protii. JVeus York Sun Special Servio* New York, Sept. 10. —John Most gives a little impetus to the rumor of a plot against Colonel Roosevelt. Most said: What good would it do to kill McKlnley unless Roosevelt was killed, too? Both must be put out of the way to do any good. Then he looked most benignantly over his spectacles at a Mack heared, unshaven anarchist at another table, and the other man nodded his head and said; "Yes, both." Stutc Liberated. Buffalo, Sept. 10.—Alfonso Stutz, who was arrested several days ago on suspicion that he knew something about Czolgosz, has been released. KING COLE TO DATE. * J.

DISCLAIMER FROM SICKLES Says He Is Not a Candidate for G. A. R. Chief. PROBABLY PICKWICKY General Sickles Pays a Generous Tribute to Judge Torrance. LATTER'S PROSPECTS BRIGHTEN Possibility That the Torrance and Stewart Forces Will Pool Isines. From a Staff Correspondent. Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 10.—General Sickles denies that he is a candidate for commander-'in-chief of the G. A. R. and says he has not asked any one to vote for him for that position; this, notwithstand ing his friends are busy here promoting his candidacy and claim that he will be elected on the first ballot. Sickles made his disclaimer in the rotunda of the Hollanden house where he was the center of an admiring group of veterans last night. "Who are candidates?" I asked him?" "Well, there are only two that I know of —Stewart of Pennsylvania and Torrance of Minnesota." "Have you any preference as between them?" "None. Torrance has a better war record than Stewart, but Stewart has giv en much of his time for twenty years to promoting Grand Army interests. Both are goaS men." General Sickles' disavowal of his candi dacy should not be taken tog seriously. Should it ultimately develop that he cannot win, it may serve to break the force of his fall, and perhaps that is why he has made it. As delegates in large numbers arrive, it becomes more dtfßoTi'tt to foKscast the outcome. Sickles has a considerable num ber of votes pledged. Stewart probably has as many as Sickles and Torrance combined, but the three candidates do not as yet control a majority of the en campment. A majority of delegates are unpledged and the work to be done to-day and to-morrow will perhaps clear the at mosphere considerably. Pension Sharks for Sickles. It is said to-day on the authority of men who claim to know that Sickles' can didacy is strongly favored by the army of pension attorneys, which is so strongly opposed to the policy of Commissioner Evans. These attorneys are said to be lieve that Sickles, if elected, would use his increased influence In such way as to insure Evans' removal. It might make a difference with the president if he knew that anti-Evans men were strong enough to control the encampment and shape Grand Army official sentiment. Despite the optimistic views of the Sickles men, the Minnesota delegates still believe that Stewart is the man they must look out for. The Stewart mana gers do .not like Sickles and- it is just possible that if there should be a likeli hood of Sickles' winning, Torrance and Stewart will unite. This would be the logical program, as both are opposed to the radical views held by Sickles and it is said would regard hi 6 election as an un- Continued on Second Page, PRESIDENT IMNLEY IS CONVALESCENT Dr. Mcßurncy Makes the Doubt-Dis pelling Announcement That Exec utive Is Out of Danger. Bells of AH Cities and Towns in the ■ Country to Ring and Cannon . Boom in Thanksgiving. Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 10.—Th« president will live, but probably will carry the bullet of the would-be assassin with him to the grave. This is the expressed opinion of Dr. Charles Mcßurney of New York, in a statement to the pres3 after the consulta tion of the physicians this morning. He announced that the president had passed the danger point and now only the possi bility of complications remained. He also announced that unless the bullet embedded in the muscles of the back caused trouble, there would be no necessity to extract it. In his opinion it would not even be located with the X-ray. The only use of the X-ray, he said, would be to satisfy curiosity. All the other physicians were equally confident after the morning consultation, that recovery is assured. Dr. Mynter said the president was out of the woods and Dr. Wasdin supplemented the speech by adding: "With plenty of daylight behind him." Dr. Roswell Parke expressed it this way: "Unless unexpected complications occur we expect him to recover." All Is Joyful. The day which had dawned wet and gloomy cleared as the physician departed. The sun broke through the clouds and 10 PAGES-FIVE OCLOCK bathed the ivy-clad home in which the president lay, in mellow sunshine. The faces of the sentries who paced their beats before the sun grew .. liant, the tireless workers of the press were jub ilant, and the people who were gathered at the lines were so overjoyed with the strong assurance given that several times they were on the point of raising a cheer. Even the exposition nip.-nagers began to plan a day of thanksgiving, not alone for the exposition, but one in which the whole country could join. It is to be given the aspect of a national day of rejoicing. Bells to Htnti Everywhere. They are arranging that on a certain day the bells of all the cities and towns in the United States be set ringing and that the rejoicing be heralded with the tooting of whistles and the booming of cannon. The members of the cabinet, Senator Hanna, General Orosvenor (who only ar rived from Ohio this morning) and all the other distinguished friends of the presi dent who have remained here to await the issue of the attempt upon his life, went to the Milburn house to learn the partic ulars and join in the general jubilee. For hours carriages and automobiles streamed up Delaware avenue. Down town the peo ple gathered in crowds at the bulletin boards and gave vent to their feelings in rejoicing and at the exposition the thou sands of visitors who read the bulletins posted everywhere burst Into cheers. Leaving' for Home, Vtee President Roosevelt will leave here to-n^ght for Oyster Bay, joining Mrs. Roosevelt later at some Adirondack re sort. Senator Hanna says he is so well satis fled with the president's condition that he will leave here this evening for Cleveland. Vice President Roosevelt departed from the residence at 12:30 leaving the mem bers of the cabinet there. "The president's recovery is assured," he said to the newspaper men. "All around him weare convinced of it. I shall leave the city this afternoon or this evening." "You consider the president completely out of danger?" "I do," he replied in his emphatic way. "I feel certain of it." Thinks of Sitting Up. Tiie president asked for the papers again this morning and also asked when he would be allowed to sit up.

Mllburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 10. —Again what may be termed a crisis night, the fourth since the dastardly attempt on the life of President McKinley, has passed and without a single symptom unfavorable to the president's recovery. In fact, the tone of the first bulletin this morning was most carefully worded, rejoicing that the distinguished patient had been more com fortable during the night than during any previous period since he was wounded. Both pulse and temperature were a trifle higher than yesterday morning, but so lit tle as to cause no worry and in fact rather to give encouragement by the slightness of the change of condition. Between 2 a. m. and 6:80 a. m. there was not a sign of life about the Milburn mansion except that at 3:15 a. m.

At 6 o'clock a gentle rain began flailing, making it unpleasant for the newspaper watchers and the guards. Luckily th» civic and military authorities had provided shelter, a big election booth and several tents. At 6 o'clock, the hour at which the first bulletin had been issued on other morn ings, there was no sign of life about th« house except the slowly moving guards parading the walks and it was understood that Secretary Cortelyou had left word that he was not to be disturbed until 7 o'clock, another slight indication that the president was doing well. "The Mont Comfortable Mght." It was a minute or so after 7 o'clock when the first bulletin was issued, al though the bulletin itself was dated at 5:20 o'clock. It was signed by £>rs.

There was confi dent ring about the phrase "the president has passed the most comfortable night since the attack on his life." These sent those who read it, on their way rejoicing that the recovery of tb« distinguished patient was now almost ab solutely assured.
