"Of course, we will all feel easier when, a week has passed," said Dr. McBurney. the dean of the corps. ""We would like to see every door of doubt locked, but the danger from possible complications is now very remote." Each of them, with the exception of Dr. Rixey. who did not leave the Milburn residence, placed 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 sur vive. reservation to the opinion that their patient was out of danger and that only the possibility of complications threatened his life.

Sept. 10.— The corps of eminent surgeons and physicians in attendance upon the wounded President to-day committed themselves without Bpecta.1 Dispatch to The Call. BUFFALO, Sept. 10.— Leon F. Czolgosz has confessed to the police that his at tempt upon the life of President McKinley was the result of a conspiracy in which many besides himself had a part. So far as can be learned Czolgosz has refused to mention any name except that of Emma Goldman, but papers are in existence which, if they can be discovered, will lay bare the en tire conspiracy- and will result in wholesale arrests, followed by prosecutions, v^r Acting under instructions from Secretary Root, the police refuse the details of the confession made by Czolgosz, but in Superintend ent Bull's office to-night The Call correspondent was told that if the would-be assassin's con fession were published in full, a wave of indignation against an archism t)f the organized sort would sweep over the country which would inevitably result in serious disorders WILL PLEAD GUILTY AT TRIAL While Czolgosz retains his show of bravado he announces his determination of entering a plea of guilty when he is brought to trial. He says that he knows full well that he is at the mercy of society, which he detests, for which reason he will make no In his confession' Czolgosz has told of his attempt to destroy the written evidences of conspir acy. He has said that the time did not permit him to burn the papers, as he had desired. Czol gosz knew that if. he was to meet the President of the United DUMPED IN A SEWER. Although Emma Goldman has been arrested in Chicago, it is probable that ' she will be brought to Buffalo for trial. The center. of the conspiracy is here: To-night Buffalo is filled literally to i overflowing with agents ot the Secret Service, scores of whom came to-day. A search is being made of every sewer that underlies the city, for it is known that in one of them is a package of papers containing the details of the conspiracy and the names of those concerned with Czol gosz in the plot; "together with ah outline of its ramifications. Society may well congratulate itself that the life of CzolgoSz was not stamped out by the fren zied mob that sought to kill him the moment after he had fired the second bullet at President Mc- Kinley. Had he then been put to death there would have been no way of bringing his accom plices to justice. It is now prac tically assured that at least a modicum of justice will be meted out to those who, with Czolgosz, sought to overthrow law and or der. fight in the courts, but will en ter as soon as possible upon his punishment. \ She said :, her purpose in coming here had -been to assist • the anarchists who :,were arrested here several days ago.' She ' had - intended ' to give herself * up to the 'police, but delayed 'it for one reason and Would Assist Anarchists. : Miss -Goldman arrived here. Sunday morning from St. Louis. Her immunity from arrest while in the Missouri metro polis, and up to to-day in -Chicago, afford her ..much amusement, she told' in sentences punctuated with laughter at her capture to-day. In her conversation with reporters, and she talked with them at length twice during the day— the ex citement she rras laboring under was sup pressed, and only once did she break down completely. That was when Cap tain Schuettler. led her from the office of Chief of Police O'Neill to the cab that , was waiting to convey her to the wo man's annex to the Harrison-street police station.- For a- moment she became a woman, pure and simple, and^cried. ih a in'omept/ however, the exhibition of dis tress was over and .when. she put her foot on • the step to mount into the carriage, she was again Emma Goldman, the /'High Priestess of Anarchy," as she has been styled by her followers. ,-- . ' Cries Like a "Woman." The; President, she averred with a yawn, was an insignificant being to her," a mere human atom whose life or death were matters of supreme indifference to her, or to any anarchist. Czolgosz's act was foolish. Yet, she declared, it prob ably had Its inspiration in _the misery which the Pole had seen about him. Vio lence, she-said, -was not a tenet in the faith of the anarchist, and she had not advocated it in Cleveland, where Czolgosz said he heard her, nor elsewhere. CHICAGO. Sept.' 10.— Emma Gold ' man, the anarchist leader, under whose red banner : Leon Czrfgosz claims he stands, whose words he claimed fired his heart and ¦ - -his brain to attempt- the assas \ : sination of the President, was ar rested here shortly before noon to-day. She disclaimed all but' the slightest acquaintance with the President's assail ant; she denied absolutely that she or any anarchist she knew was, implicated in any plot to kill < the President. She said sh» believed Czolgosz acted entirely on his- own' responsibility, and that ho claimed to" : have been inspired by Her, as'ho is quoted as affirming.
