PRICE TWO CENTS* MISS GOLDMAN IN POLICE COURT Her Case Postponed Umi! *he 19th Inst, When -. the Imprisoned Chicago h schists Will Have Their Hearing. Apostle of Anarchism Passes the Night Talking Intemperately in Conformity With Her Murderous Creed. Chicago, Sept. 11.-j-Magistrate Prindi ville to-day granted a continuance until Sept. 19 in the case of the anarchist lec turer Emma Goldman, who was arrested here yesterday. City Prosecutor Owens stated that the prisoner was charged with conspiracy to murder the president and that therefore he desired that she be held without ball. Miss Goldman was not represented by counsel, but declared her desire to have an immediate hearing. With a determined little snap of her teeth, she said she was ready to proceed without counsel. When the court granted the con tinuance she said she wanted to be al lowed her freedom under bond. The mag istrate said that, as the latest bulletin indicated that the distinguished patient at Buffalo was on the high road to re covery, he would consider the matter of bail further and would announce his de cision at noon. Miss Goldman appeared in court at 9:30 a. m., under the escort of Matron Keegan. She seemed surprised that no lawyer was there to take up her defense and glanced uneasily about the room full of uncouth prisoners and curious spectators. She asked for Lawyers Saltiel and Browne. They were not in court and Justice Prindi ville said he would wait a reasonable time for them to appear. Although the tele phone was kept busy, an hour elapsed and the lawyers were still absent. Chief of Detectives Colleran then demanded that the hearing proceed. It took only a few minutes and then Miss Goldman was led back to her room in the woman's annex. She looked tired and nervous. When Pros ecutor Owens repeated the charge against her she flushed and then smiled. Assistant City Prosecutor Owens told tUe magistrate that Chief Bull of Buffalo had asked the Chicago police to hold Miss Goldman as long as possrtrie, pending the investigation they are making. "I asked the chief of police last night to have Lawyer Saltiel sent to me," she said to a reporter, before leaving the courtroom. "1 guess he must have for gotten it. I expected that my friends would have been busy in my behalf, for getting that most of them have been locked up in this nation-wide drag-net which the police have flung out." Miss Goldman spent a very uncomfort able night in the woman's annex to the Harrison street police station. She ate a hearty supper, but shortly afterward complained of headache and wrote a pre scription which Bhe handed to Chief Mat ron Keegan, with a request that it be filled. The matron, however, declined to do so without the sanction of the chief of police, fearing an attempt to do herself harm. The matron offered her a headache cure that she herself used, but Miss Goldman refused to take it. She talked nearly the whole night to the matron, again and again repeating her wonder that so insig nincant a man as McKinley should re ceive such widespread attention. "Her words were even more violent than in the inerviews she gave out yes terday," said the matron to-day. Judge Cheltain decided to hold Isaaks and the other alleged anarchists without bail until Friday, when argument will be heard on the habeas corpus petition filed by Attorney Saltiel to-day. The petition is directed against Chief of Police O'Neill. Sheriff Magerstadt and Justice Prindiville. A JERSEY JIDGE He Says Anarchist Meeting Places Are Unlawful. JS"*t«" York Sun Sj>e 'i I Service New York, f * 11.—The disrepute into which New Je.sc/ has fallen, particular as to Paterson, Newark and other points noted for treating leniently the leaders of anarchist groups, some of whom have been closely identified with recent foreign adventures, if not openly with the attack upon President McKinley, has apparently had the effect to move the people of that state to urge severe actions against the anarchists. Communities in which the I anarchists are most conspicuous are daily emphasizing their condemnation of these teachings and acts and calling for a more radical treatment of all who openly par ticipate in such meetings. In a charge to the grand Jury at Newark Judge Dunne felt called upon to say: . Since the murderous assault upon the presi dent, one of the members of that group has said that the name of William McKinley has been under consideration by them. If a con spiracy formed in this stat3, having for its object the murder of any one In' another state or country, so far executed in our state as that parties in complicity leave the state for th« purpose of carrying it into efect, be not idlctable under our laws, the law on that subject ought promptly to be changed by the most drastic legislation. There are undoubtedly anarchists in this city, and not a few of them. ."'■*, .. I am informed that the anarchists are accustomed to congregate in certain saloons for the purpose of conference and to advocate their peculiar doctrines. A saloon or a place in which such illegal practices are tolerated to such an extent as to be in a legal sense habitual, is unlawful and the keeper of the saloon or place is amenable to indictment for keeping a disorderly house. The course of procedure in this city indicates that there Is law in existence, if put in force, to pre vent the public dissemination of these pernici ous doctrines. Judge Dunne asked the jury to make Says There Is an Arch Conspirator New York. Sept. 11.—James G. Trimble, commissioner of the state of New Jersey, to Inquire into the murder of King Humbert of Italy, has returned and says: My investigation of the Bresci affair has shown plainly that there is A man in this country who is the arch conspirator 1 in all these assassina tions. I cannot now give his name. I sent all the evidence to the Italian government. "Who was it gave Bresci and his companions the money to accomplish their designs?" The answer to this question will be the name of the most dangerous man in America to-day. investigation and to bring in indictments for, said he, "a precedent of this kind will exercise salutary purposes." At the same time Governor Voorhees stated that he had not relaxed in his de termination to have enacted a law that must necessarily crush anarchy out of the state. There is no need of a special ses sion of the legislature, he says, and his suggestions from the most eminent coun cillors in the state as the provisions of the proposed act and its scope are some what in doubt, but may be on the lines of making membership in organizations whose objects are directed against the state and county a crime punishable with a heavy sentence. / BY COIRT-MARTIAL Mr. (under! on the Exclusion of Anarehittta. New York, Sept. 11. —"'I am not sure but what it might be possible to try Czolgosz by court martial," says Frederick R. Cou dert, the well-known New York lawyer, last night. He went on: I am sure that something should be done to protect the president. Such an attack as was made on him ought to be impossible. The matter of anarchists in America will re ceive the attention of the public, now that this has happened, and they will no longer go about threatening law and order. We can exclude alien anarchists from America by passage of laws. If they are citizens, it is another matter. In most states there is law enough to prevent men and women from making speeeheß that excite men to riot and to attacks upon the government. When the president has recovered, we can formulate some definite plan for the regulation of an archists. There ought to be laws passed to prevent the. president from shaking hands with people In the a public manner, and thereby risking his life. A JERSEY ARREST Edelbert -Stone,-. Who Proved a True Prophet. _,. - Camden, N. J., Sept. 11.—Bdelbert Stone was. arrested in this city last night on the* charge of "abetting the assassination of President McKinley." The arrest was made by City Detective Painter. United States secret service officials were notified. On Friday afternoon last before 3 o'clock Stone is said to have told two of his fel low employes in the New York shipbuild ing yard that he would not be surprised if President McKinley would be killed that day. LET NO ANARCHIST LAND One of the Measures to Be Intro- duced In ConscreMH. San Francisco, Sept.. 11. —Representative Metcalf of the third* California district, proposes to introduce a strons immigra tion restriction measure at the next ses sion of congress. He says: Xo anarchist should be allowed to land on our shores, and it should be regarded as trea son and treated as such for any man or woman to make an attack upon the life of the president or vice-president of the United States, or to advocate, encourage or approve the assassination, or attempted assassination, of the president or vice-president of the United States. METfiUEN WHIPS BOERS DX LAREY FORCED TO GIVE WAY Great Change Expected When Kitch ener's Proclamation Takes Ef fect Next Sunday. ' London, Sept. 11. —Lord Kitchener re ports to the war office from Pretoria as follows: Methuen engaged Vautender and DeLarey in Great Maries valley, Sopt. 6 and 8, driving them from a strong position Sept. 8. The Boers left six dead Sept. 6 and twelve Sept. 8. Forty-one prisoners were captured. With the approach of mid-September, sanguine Britons believe Lord Kitchener and the government have a plan in mind other than "'Mr. Dooley's simple recipe of declaring the Boer war off." It is still expected that there will be a great change in the situation on Sept. 15, when Lord Kitchener's proclamation goes into effect, the only ground for such belief being that the government would not be so fatuous as to issue a proclamation without a defi nite scheme. The conservative papers speak of the likelihood of guerrilla war force throughout the coming South African summer, and the war ofßce has issued in structions that recruits must "enlist for one year, or longer if the war lasts."

POWER This Is Certainly Held by Judge Torrance. TWO CHANGES TO WIN Withdrawal of Sickles or Stewart or Numerous Ballots. HEAD OF EX-PRISONERS OF WAR Commander Seeley of Miimeapolta . Boomed for President of That Organization, From a Staff Correspondent. Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 11.—As the pre liminary canvaea for commander-in-chief of the G. A. R. draws to a close it is ~^^^ The American Eagle—There's no room for you in this nest. easy to see that Judge Torrance holds the balance of power. Should either Sickles or Stewart "withdraw —and there has been talk of it —Torrance would easily win. Should the voting last for three ballots or longer, he would win. While the contest is close and Torrance is carrying the handicap of getting late into the race, his friends are hopeful and insist that his chances are improving each day. The strength he is developing is a high trib ute to his standing as a Grand Army man and his candidacy has assumed a dignity and importance that will be gratifying to every member of the organization In Min nesota. Should be fail to win this year, the prize'will surely be his in 1902. This. Is everywhere conceded; I think to-day that he has an even chance for victory. Complications may arise, however, to up set present calculations. Trying to Sidetrack Sickles. There was a stormy meeting of the New York delegation last night. Sickles' opponents in that state have caused him a lot of trouble and are trying to force him off the track. The Stewart mana gers are encouraging this factional dis turbance, which Sickles knows. His friends in the other departments are filled with resentment end there is a possibili ty of considerable feeling showing itself in the encampment. Sickles and Stewart cannot possibly unite and both are friend ly to Torrance, who appears to be the sec ond choice of practically all the dele gates. It is unfortunate that he did not announce his candidacy six month 3 ago. This would have prevented Sickles and Stewart from securing a large part of their present pledged support. The atmosphere is expected to be somewhat clearer by to-morrow morning. The Rawlins Post people, aided by Gov ernor Van Sant have worked like beav ers and are able to-day to make some very satisfactory calculations based upon the situation as it now stands. These cal culations,- however, are likely to became valueless, as the situation changes from hour to hour. These changes may or may not help Torrance. Nobody can fore cast them. Thus far they have helped him and for all that is now known they may continue to do so. It is anybody's fight as it now stands. Each candidate has enough support to justify him in being hopeful acd in putting forth his best ef forts. Seeley Is a Candidate. At the meeting which John A. Rawlins post held with the ex-Prisoners of War, it was unanimously decided to *>rin* I. C.' Seeley, the commander of the post, out as a candidate for the office of president of the ex-Prisoners of War National asso ciation. There were present at the re ception, in addition to members of the post, about 150 gentlemen who will have votes in the convention and ell declared themselves favorable to the candidacy of Mr. Seeley, who in fact was brought into the race without any action whatever on his own part. Several months ago,* through the medium of Minneapolis newspapers, Mr. Seeley entered a very" vigorous protest against the policy which foij years had prevailed in councils ©£ Prisoners of War associations, a policy which in five years has reduced the number of associations from llfty-seven to seV*uteen. The head quarters of the association for a long time has been in Pittsburgh in which city th^e last five annual conventions** have been held. A few rich men in that city have been in the habit of defraying all ex penses of the order Wth the Inevitable result that members having no share in the financial burdens and other mat ters related to maintaining the organiza tion have lost interest. Mr. Seeley stands for the proposition to pattern the order in every respect after the G. A* R., and this counsel seems likely to prevail. If it should do so, Mr. Seeley is the logi cal candidate for the presidency, since he is the man who will have accom •plished the reform. Niirihivrxtfrn Arrival*. G. S. Ives of St. Peter, former depart ment commander of Minnesota, arrived this morning via Detroit and marched in. the parade with Judges Collins and Searles. He has left Mrs. Ives at the Mt. Clemens sanatorium, where she will re main for a few weeks. Captain Henry A. Castle of Washington arrived last night and is stopping with Bawlins post at the Garlock hotel. He will return to Wash ington as soon as the encampment is over. —W. W. Jermane. AN OVERFLOW. First Financier —Are you getting much out of that new oil well? Second Financier—Are we?

Sept. 11.—At 1 o'clock to morrow afternoon the court of inquiry will meet to begin the investigation of the charge that Admiral Schley acted in a cowardly and disobedient manner during the West Indian naval campaign. The court, headed by Admiral Dewey, will as semble at the Gunshop building la the navy yard. Admiral Schley, who is iB the city, will be there, and it is expected that the hall will be packed with a dis tinguished assembly of witnesses and spectators. The admiral and his attorneys were as sembled to-day in their headquarters at the Shoreham for a final conference. At torneys Wilson and Raynor have gone over the evidence and believe they are provided for any contingency. They ex press themselves as ready and confident. There is no formal method of procedure in a court of inquiry. There are no pleadings, opening addresses, or division into prosecution and defense. The whole affair is in the hands of the judge advo cate general. The precept will be read at the opening of the court ana then wit nesses will be summoned in any order which may be dictated by the judge advo cate. Counsel for Schley will adopt defensive tactics. At the beinning they will have nothing to do but let the department go ahead summoning witnesses and bringing out evidence bearing on points mentioned in the precept. It will be only when evi dence is apparently distorted or unfavor able that the lawyers will insist on cross examination. They will permit the de partment to exhaust its list of witnesses before summoning theirs. On the question whether Admiral Samp son's health will permit him to be pres ent and take the stand Schley's attorneys have received no official information. Their unofficial information leads them to believe he will not, and they regret this very much. It is expected that the court will get down to business at once. Last year this country used 750,000,000 pounds of coffee and 4,500,000,000 pouads of sugar. AMES AFTER MEGAARDEN Grand Jury Asked to Hear Certain Charges BY INSPECTOR NELSON They Involve Alleged Overcharges Against County Commissioners THE MAYOR IS PERSISTENT Effortm to DisMuade Him From Hln Coarse Said to Have Proved Futile. Inspector Charles Nelson, acting on be half of Mayor Ames, it is said, has re quested a hearing before the present grand Jury in order to submit charges looking toward the indictment of Sheriff P. T. Me gaarden. The matters which the mayor's officer wishes to disclose Involve alleged overcharges on the part of the sheriff for various services rendered and submitted in the bills which he presents monthly to the commlsisoners. The sheriff's bills were always allowed without question un til the beginning, of the present year when the attention of Assistant County Attorney C. L. Smith was called to vari ous charges said to be unauthorized. Various items in the bills were disal lowed, and it was thought at the time that the question was of small importance. Later investigations, however' brought to light other alleged overcharges, and these were tabulated and submitted to the board of county commissioners at their last meeting. The board immediately de manded a settlement from the sheriff and deducted over $400 from his bill, an amount large enough to cover the over charges since Jan. 1. A resolution was also passed authorizing Mr. Smith to pro ceed with an investigation covering the records back through Mr. Megaarden's first term, and through that of his demo cratic predecessor, Alonzo Phillips. A statement of the alleged overcharges is said to have reached the mayor, hence the request for a hearing submitted by In spector Nelson. Inspector Nelson has been selected as the instrument through which the wheels are to be set in motion for the undoing of Sheriff Megaarden, and though various dis intersted parties, it is said, have endeav ored to dissuade the mayor from urging the matter, he persists and the jury will have to dispose of the subject one way or the other. The jury has not yet reached the point where it feels that it has time to inves tigate matters of this character and is dis posing of routine business as rapidly as possible. About thirty case? were on the calendar, and of that numoer over two thirds are already out of the way, giving reasonjo believe that the jury's work will be completed to-morrow, and then the Megaarden matter can be taken up or an adjournment till next week agreed upon in order to give the county attorney time to prepare the indictments. NOYES STILL AILING Judge Will Try the Benefit* of a Mountain Reaort. Special to The Journal. Washington, Sept. 11.—Judge Noyes' condition lias not changed for the better and it is probable that he will go to some near-by mountain resort—probably Oak land, Md. —to see if rarefied anr will not cure him of asthma- Attorney Gen eral Knox notified Judge Noyes this morn ing that he will leave Washington to-mor row night to remain away until the latter part of next week and the Judge will, despite the advice of his physician, go to the department this afternoon to have * conference with Mr. Knox. It is not ex pected that anything will be done then, and that a day will be named when the attorney general returns and Judge Noyes recovers for Another and more extended hearing. , 12 PAGES-FIVE O'CLOCK. APPREHENSION IS ALLAYED Alarmist Reports as to the President's Condi tion Effectually Set at Rest by His Physicians. Reopening of Abdominal Incision Not Especially Significant—Signs of Improvement Are More and More Marked. Milburn House, Buffalo, Aug. 11.—Presi dent McKinley continues to show the most unmistakable evidences of improvement and recovery and the uneasiness caused by last night's dressing of the abdominal wound has given way to more pronounced confidence than has existed at any time sincef the shooting. The incident of last night never had any significance to the doctors and such as it had given rise to in the lay mind was quickly dispelled when the physicians arrived this morning. Their 9 o'clock bulletin pronounced the president in excellent condition and made known that he had slept well and had ex perienced decided benefits from the dress ing of the outer wound. : But the doctors did not confine : : themselves to the brief official : : bulletin. They were ready to : : discuss the case frankly and : : fully in all its bearings. This : : gave a body of authoritative : : information on the circumstan- : : tial details of the president's : : condition, all showing a most : : highly satisfactory condition. As : : to the reopening of the abdom- : : inal incision, this was dismissed : : as part of the treatment neces- : : sary to the progress of such : : wounds. : : As to the inner wounds, where : : the bullet penetrated the walls of : : the stomach, there was the most : : gratifying progress, as the stom- : : ach was now carrying on normal : : digestive processes. The beef : : Juice which was fed by the : ; mouth for (be first lime last : : night had been assimilated with- : : out the slightest indications that : : the wounds in the stomach re- : : tarded the processes of nature. : ." . •. r .' The president himself showed many signs of improvement. He was so cheery that one of the doctors remarked th.at they would let him smoke a cigar before long. He had shown not the slightest depression from the dressing of the wound last night. Confidence Akin to Certainty. The situation was so bright that all of those about the president and the many who came to inquire as to the president's condition were cheered with confidence akin to absolute certainly that the presi dent is now on the high road to recov ery. There continued to be talk of his early removal to Washington, although the doctors were not willing to place any such movement within two or three weeks, and some of them held that the climate here was much more conducive to his progress than that of the national cap ital. Mrs. McKinley saw the president this morning. When the doctors arrived at the house this morning for the consultation they passed her sitting In the upper cor ridor of the residence, at work on her knitting. She was in good spirits and after the visit of the doctors they gave their assent to her entering the sick room again. She remained only a minute, as the physicians are avoiding any sapping of the president's strength by prolonged visits even by those nearest to him. Could Be Moved To-day. Dr. Moßurney said he had not decided just when he would return home. "If I remain over to-night it will be solely be cause of my intense interest in the case." : When asked when the presl- : : dent could be moved Dr. Mcßur- : : ney said that no nuestion as to : : that had arisen. He said: : : "If it were necessary, he could : : toe moved to-day. He could be : : placed in an ambulance, taken to : : the train, placed on a lounge in a : : special car and taken to Wash- : • ington—that is, so far as his : : condition is concerned. But there : : there Is no reason why he should : : not enjoy every comfort and take : : his time about it. It will not : : hurt him to remain a few weeks : : in Buffalo." : Dr. Mcßurney said that the interior ■wounds had healed. That was proved by the manner in which the president had digested the beef juice given to him last night. He said the president had relished the nourishment given him and to-morrow he will be given white of egg and perhaps something else. Dr. Mann Corroborates. Dr. Mann, who performed the original operation last Friday and who did the dressing of the wound last night, con curred in the expression of confidence which the other doctors had given. "What was done last night," said Dr. Mann, "was merely the usual dressing of the Incision of the abdomen requisite to keep it in proper condition. The incision is about five inches long, just above the navel, horizontal and in line with the body. There ia no crow incision. The cut BULLETINS^ THE DAY v a. m. Milburn House, Sept. 11.—The following bulletin was issued by the president's physicians at 6 a. m.: : The president has passed a : : very comfortable night. Pulse : : 120: temperature 100.2': respira- : : tion 26. . ; : —P. M. Rixey. : : , —Eugene Wasdin, : : —George B. Cortelyou, : : Secretary. : !> a. m. Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 11.—Th« following bulletin wa6 issued by the pres ident's physicians at 9 a. m.: : The president rested comforta- : : bly during the night.

The results wer« entirely satisfactory and the president's condition this morning shews the benefits of what was done. He is cheerful and con* fldeat.' In fact be is doing so well that I shall not be surprised if we let him have a cigar before long. As to Just when he can be moved, that is not being considered, for the reason that he is much better off here than he would be in Washington. There the weather is intolerable in Sep tember, but here it is cool and bracing, which will count much in the stages of convalescence. One of the most depress ing heat periods I ever experienced- was in Washington in September. So, all things considered, I think it will lend much to the president's recovery to remaio where he is, at least until October." Relation of the Wounds. Dr. Mann was asked as to the relation of the outer incision to the inner wounds of the stomach. "They are quite separate," said he. "The wounds of the stomach are those made by the bullet, while the outer incision was that required by the surgical operation immediately after the shooting. As to the Wounds of the stomach, they were closed during the operation and now sufficient time has elapsed to permit the sutures to heal by natural process. That this is progressing nicely is evident from the re storation of the normal digestive pro cesses. Until last night we had not per mitted food to enter the stomach by way of the mouth; but the administration of beef juice has proved so satisfactory that we have doubled the amount and will add the white of eggs. He is receiving as much as three and four teaspoonfuls of beef juice an hour, and this will be grad ually increased." No Need to Extract the Bullet. Dr. Mann was asked if the treatment of the wounds will in any way affect the course to be pursued as to extracting the bullet. "Not at all," he replied. "There is no need of extracting the bullet. I have known a man who carried a bullet in the muscles of his heart. In this case the bullet is encysted by this time and it is pot a feature of the case to give further concern." MORNING SITUATION Alarming; Rumors Are Disposed Of Authoritatively. Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 11.—"Th« president has passed a very comfortable night," said the 6 o'clock morning bulle tin, issued by Doctors Rixey and Wasdin, the two physicians who remained at th« president's bedside throughout the night. A few minutes later, Dr. Rixey, the presi dent's regular physician, was seen by a reporter. He displayed no evidence of anxiety and was emphatic in his charac terization of the sensationally alarming reports put in circulation in the early hours of the morning as a result of the bulletin issued a few minutes before mid night, but dated 10:30 p. m. Dr. Rixey asked about these reports and he replied earnestly and without any hesitation whatever: : "Those statements are not : : true. The president is not in a : : serious condition and there is no : : alarm felt ovef him. The facts : : are just as stated in the regular : : bulletins of the physicians who : : are anxious that the public shall : : <be fully acquainted with the : : truth." : The scare caused by even the faintest indication of trouble In connection with
