At the White House and the State AVar
and Nay Departments officials were on
duty jesterday to receive communlcitions
from Buffalo and elsewhere concerning
the condition of the President Air Adee
the Acting Secretary of State with the
assistance of the Acting Chief Clerk Mr
Martin the Chief of the Consular Hu
reau Mr Chilton and others received
and arranged the scores of telegrams of
condolence that continued to pour In from
all ocr the world
as an authority on constitutional and ar and Navy Departmerts over wires
general law gives great weight to his
Concerning the punishment which can
be meted out to Gzulgosz under existing
law there is little difference of opinion
among lawyers There Is no equity side
to the case In other word the attack
made on the President Is a crime but no
greater and no less a crime than an at
tack made by any man on any other man
Criminal law defines the crime and fixes
the penalty It is for a jury to determine
on the facts
Judge Dillons opinion is as follows
Legislation adapted to this and similar
cases making an attempt to assassinate
tho President the Vice President ai d pos
sibly an of the heads of the departments
though unsuccessful a capital offence
which I think ought to be done itust
come from Congress Such offences with
regard to the head of a nation in almost
every other country than this would be
treason and punishable capital
But under the Constitution of the
United States treason is defined to consist
only in levlng that is making war
against the United States which Implies
an assemblage of men organized forcibly
to overturn the Government or to resist
its authority or to give aid and comfort
to the enemies of the United States which
implies a state of war Therefore the at
tempt to assassinate or even the assas
sination of the President could not be
punished as treason
But nothing stands in the way of Con
gress making the assassination of or at
tempt to assassinate the President a cap
ital offence punishable In the Federal
tribunal -iv hich I think ought to be done
It could not of course be made retroac
tive to cover a previous offence of this
Judge Roger A Pryor who prior to his
elevation to the bench some twelve jears
ago Tanked as one of the ablest criminal
lawjers In the countr pointed out some
of the dangers In the amendment suggest
ed by Judge Dillon In discussing the
opinion given above he taid
In Judge Dillons statements of the
law as It exists I entirely concur His
huggested amendments of the law are of
too OTtat cravitv and difficulty to be dis
posed of out of hand It is a question
which 1 prefer to consider more deliber
ately whether in the definition of punish
ments a discrimination should be made
between a private citizen and a public
officer Ail legislelJorrprujeelecJ der the

Where would you draw the line be
tween the man and the official If ou
have a law for the President why not for
the Cabinet officers And if for thesewhy
not for subordinate officials clerks In the
departments at Washington or elsewhere
or all Government officials The Injury
done the United States as a nation by
the asslnation of its President is un
doubtedly very greatTbut so far as the
principle goes the nation suffers Injur of
a similar kind though of course much
less in degree b a similar crime com
mitted against other officials The law
roust deal with principles and it would
be hard to draw the line
General Prjor In association with Gen
Benjamin Butler and John Randolph
Tucker appeared as counsel for bpies
the Chlcaso anarchist when the latter
had ljeen convicted In an Illinois court
and appealed to the Supreme Court of the
United States Discussing the legal as
pects of the Czolgosz case toda he said
Tho decision of the Supreme Court In
the Spies appeal was a very sweeping
one and it ha6 a direct bearing on the
present case I havent the least doubt
that if Emma Goldman said one half the
things she Is report to have said about
killing rulers and particularly the Presi
dent of the United States she could be
tried as an accessory to the crime and
If Mr McKlnley dies could be made to
surr capital punishment That is the
law as laid down by the Supreme Court
In all my experience both on and off
tho bench the Czolgosz case is the most
remarkable one 1 ever knew It seems
to be clearly established that he Is a Jew
I have never known a Jew to be charged
with murder Look over the calendars
of the courts any day and 0U will find
Jews charged with various kinds of of
fences tut very seldom with what law
ers call crimes of violence and never
In my experience with murder
1 am inclined to agree with Senator
Piatt that a case like this calls for lvnch
law While I do not advocate violence
It almost beems that it is justifiable under
such circumstances Should the Presi
dent die his tssassin will have a lengthy
nnd hard fought trial with elaborate ar
guments forensic display ad nauseam
nnd a resort to every possible and some
impossible expedients by his counsel
supported by the fame which he believes
no has brought upon himself Czolgosz
will die came and the ery object of the
law which is to inflict punishment for
the purpose of deterring crime would be
Hutr much better It would have been
If Czogosz had been torn limb from limb
the moment after he committt d the
crime How much better would the pur
p6se of the law have been served by such
fcUmraary punishment as Is meted out to
a mad dog or a venomous snake I do
not wish to be understood as advocating
lyrrh law but this seems to be one of the

After carefully watching the Incoming

that the Buffalo authorities were aware
of the present whereabouts of the notori

their hands on her whenever she was
wanted She Is not in Washington and
there is no likelihood of her coming here

All of the members of the police force

While Major Slvester Is reluctant to
crltlctae the officers of other cities It Is
evident that he believes that had proper
precautions been taken Czolgosz would
never have been permitted to reach or

would have been possible for Czolgosz to

with his hand covered with a h tndki r

On his return to Buffalo today he was
driven to the MUburn house where he saw
Secretar Cortelou At that time Mr
CortelOU was for the moment alone
In the house except of course
the phjsiclans After a fifteen
minutes Interview with Mr Cortelyou
Mr Ireland went to the Buffalo Club
where he saw Secretary Gage He took
to Secretar Gage somo telegrams and a
verbal message from tho chief of the
Secret Service
Secretary Gage was about to start for
the Milburn homo and Detective Ireland
walked with him from the club to the
house The report that he then made
to Secretary Gage as to tho result of his
work both refused to disclose Acting
under the general request of Secretary of
War Root to suppress all information as
to the existence of a plot or the move
ments against the anarchists the local
police and the Secret Service men main
tain the utmost reserve and will make
no statement of an official nature
Only three Secret Service men are in
Buffalo today but moro wld bo here to
morrow Thoso now here are Ireland i
rosier and Gallagher While In Rochester
Detective Ireland found evidence that
Emma Goldman had been in Rochester
and Buffalo recently but no evidence to
show where she stopied while In Buf
falo or with whom she had relations
Emma Goldmans mother said she was
last in Rochester Ave weeks ago Her
sister fixed the time as three weeks ago
They declare they do not know where
she went on leaving Rochester or where
she may be at present Tills information
was conveyed to oupei2tendcnt of Po
lice Benll whosa men have failed to
discover or trace any of her movements
while ln Buffalo Were it not for the let
ters found at Chicago bearing thc date
Buffalo August 29 they would have no
proof that she had been here
Nothing official can be had from thc
local police or the Secret Service regard
ing their present opinion as to whether
Czolgosz had a confederate or confeder
ates at thc scene of the attempted assas
sination and Indeed they are equally re
ticent as to whether the evidence In their
hands tends to establish a matured con
spiracy The local police give the im
pression that th2 believe the attack on
the President was a conspirac of which
others have criminal knowledge The
statement comes from an official of the
Secret Service that that branch of official
enquiry holds to the theory that Czolgosz
acted Independently Inspired by the an
archistic doctrines lot Goldman and her
followers but not actuated by any direct
relations with them
It Is said a Secret Service official a
distinct thing under our law for me to
counsel with ou privately and Incite you
to a crime and quite another for me to
make a speech in the presence of a hun
dred people calculated to affect ou In
the same way No evidence has been
produced which can truthfully be said to
prove a conspiracy against the life of
the President No trace has been found

of the crime which has been committed
against the nation and showed kcenly
that he felt the full force of the enormity
of the unhappy termination to the festivi
In China we would consider such a
man as Czolgosz a parricide said Minis
ter Wu and would deal with him as the
laws of Confuscius direct He would suf
fer the Hng chi or thc death of a
thousand cuts The worst crime a man
can commit is to kill his father but to
kill his sovereign is worse if such a thing
Is possible To kill the father of ones
country is worse than murder I am over
whelmed to think that go good a man as
President McKlnley should have been
made the object of such a murderous at
He was friend ln tho bitter trials of

pity and sorow to think that this thing
should have befallen him
None of the Diplomatic Corps were
present at the time of the shooting of the

to gather son e valuable Information and
all express great sorrow at the sad ter

While outside the Milburn house wait

the Colombian Minister came up said
Minister Calderon We shook hands and
ch itted together pleasantl We learned
from a friend of the President that he
was then out for a walk and that he was
entlrel alone I thought at the time
that perhaps it was unsafe for the Presi

asked if the ame fear was not experi

talking She replied that there was no
fenr to be anticipated in so orderl a city
as Buffalo These walks the President
had said to his friend are the greatest
pleasure I have and I would not wish
to be denied them The are very neces

American pepole Shortly afterward we
saw the President turn a cornerand enter
thc Milburn residence He was alone 1
was greatly Impressed by the scene the
chief of a mighty nation walking unac
companied upon the streets of a noisy
and closely populated city
At Niagara the President was light
frpcrtciL He talked and chatted pleasant
ly and seemed in suVh execieatpirits
I shall alwaS think of President 5lcKlrt
ley when I recall the Falls He was the
life of the little party and was especially
anxious that we should all understand and
appreciate the workings c the electric
light plant He persanally explained a
number of points about the raacliiner in
connection with the plant which were not
fully intelligible to the rest of the party
At half past 3 we returned to Buffalo
We learned that the President would hold
a reception that afternoon and in view
of this fact knowing that a crowd would
be present made our plans for other
things There was not a member of the
Diplomatic Corps In the Temple of Mu
sic when the attempt was made upon the
life of the President Together with Dr
Silva I went to the Hall of Machinery
When we returneel the news of the horri
ble tragedy was afloat We saw Mr Cor
UIOU and learned the details What im
pressed us most was the calm with which
the American people received the news
Immense throngs filled every available
space but there was no disorder no de
monstration We were stopped by hun
dreds of people enquiring for news but
there was nothing said except that which
was spoken quietly and with dignity
And et the anxiety was most acute I
realized one thing about the American
people tney nave a great power of
serve as well
a great national
I am astonished that there Is no law
in this countr to prevent the transmis
sion of anarchistic matter through the
mails In Peru we have a law which
makes an attempt upon tho life of the
President a capital crime however un
succesiful the attempt may be The three
native born It would seem to me that
assassins of your Presidents have been
the people of America used to free Insti
tutions should be incapable of sucii
Mr Kogoro Takahlra the Minister from
Lilian was also horrified at the attempt
maue upon me uie or tne Ircslelent He
voiced thc sentiments of his people he
said in expressing the utmost sorrow and
pit at the unhappy event

This man is a phsiclan He was at same
distance from the Temple of Music with
a friend when at a few minutes after i
oclock their attention was attracted by
a man who oinn omnlng down the road
way waving his hands in the air He was
a man apparently about sixty ears old
and was bareheaded The phslclan3
llrst thought was that he was either in
toxicated or had been driven Insane by
the heat
What shall we do he was shouting In
the faco of every man ho met along the
roadway when he came to the phslclan
he threw out both hands appeallngl and
screamed again For Gods sake tell mc
what shall we do
I should say replied the phsiclan
soothingly convinced that the man was
out or his senses that you better go ask
the police about Ask the first policeman

The stranger shook his head despairing

him with some concern nnd saw him turn
about on the steps of the Fine Arts build

time he added The President has been
shot we must do something
The phslclan and his friend ran to him
with the Idea of keeping him from mak
ing an such horrible statements In his
Irresponsible condition When they re
monstrated with him ho became calmer
and convinced them that he was neither
insane nor drunk but simply unbalanced
by grief and horror The physician and
his friend saw an ambulance whirl by
with a number of cavalry outriders and
ran after it to the hospital They found
the President already on the operating ta

phslcian In question Is not a surgeon
and cared to do no more than to approve
thc action of the hospital authorities in
sending for Drs Mann Mnter and
Parke He assured the President
that when they came he would have the
benefit of the best skill that there was In
