Hear Admiral Howlson ns a member of
the Court off Enquiry was taken up
Shortly after the arrival of Judge Ra
ner Ensign George 13 Rice reached the
city He -Rill one of the witnesses for
Admiral Schley at the Court of Enquiry
After registering nt the Navy Depart
ment Mr Rice went to the Shorcham
where he recited his knowledge of the
battle of Santiago Ensign Rice was en
gineer officer on the Brooklvn in charge
of the machinery of the after turret
and his testimonj will be of considerable
Importance He came to Washington
from Manila pursuant to orders
The action of the Attorney General In
his communication to Assistant Secrttan
Hackett of the Navy as above referred
to is understood to hate been recelved
with satisfaction by both Admiral Schlej
and his counsel They lielleve It is
gathered from authoritative sources that
the action of the Attorney General has at
last placed the Court of Enquiry In its
proper light by showing plainly that he
regards It not as a Government prosecu
tion but as an enquiry pure and sim
ple The attitude which has been taken
apparently by some persons has been
that Sampson s side of the case hjs been
the Governments side The action of the
Attorney General Is said to have settled
all such erroneous opinions
Attorney General Knox when asked
concerning his reported declination to as
sist the Xaw Department In the prosecu
tion of the Schley case before the Court
of Enquire asked to be excused from dis
cussing the matter He ssld that he
would prefer that all Information be
Blen by the Navy Department He did
not denv that the facts were as stafed
but said that to confirm the report would
lie eoulvalent to discussing It which he
did not feel at llbertv to do as a matter
of courtesy to the Navy Department
When -the Court of Enquiry convenes on
Thursday afternoon Admiral Schlej s
case after vveks of hard and constant
work on the part of his counsel will be
fully ready for presentation and the
preparation of the case has been com
pletcd and nothing remains to be done
but to exnmlne what few witnesses may
reach the city before the oiurt convenes
The case is well in hand me laDor in
its preparation has been enormous Many
witnesses have been examined Their ex
amination by the counsel for Admiral
Schley has often consumed as much as
six hours and the work in consequence
has been tedious in the extreme
Thousands of sheets of closely typewrit
ten paper contain the evidence which It
Is confidently expected will completely
vindicate Admiral Schley
The admiral his never enjoyed better
health in his life and is vigorous and
strong- If one can judge from his
he is in perfect physical con
dition His complexion is clear and his
eye a bright

that they were so near their homes and
they were preparing for an entertainment

lous believing that they had not heard
the message correctly and It had to be
repeated A deep gloom immediately fell
over the vessel and nothing was talked
of but the awful crime at Buffalo
The entertainment that evening was
abandoned and Instead the passengers
held religious services offering prajers
for the recov ery of the President and the
welfare of the country The exercises
were Interspersed with the singlnj of pa
triotic hymns
When the pilot came aboard the papers

BALTIMORE Sept 10 A lively polo
war in which a half dozen county police
-were called to prevent a collision betveen
a small army of determined residents
mostly women and twenty employes of
the United Rallwa s Company took place
esterday morning on East Baltimore
Street between East and Highland Ave
rsyes Just outside the eastern city limits
ani within the borders of Hlghlandtown
The struggle started about 7 a m when
the workmen began an attempt to plant
Iron poles In place of large wooden ones
Three poles were planted In front ts as
many houses without opposition but
trouble began when the workmen started
to dig a hole in front of 3423 the home of
Mrs Edward Burton Mrs Burton and
several members of her family drove the
workmen away and placing a chair over
the excavation sat upon It until the work
men withdrew from the scene
Seeing that serious trouble would re
jsult In a further attempt upon Mrs Bur
tons property the workmen went In
front of the home of Charles A Dorsey
at 3327 They formed u circle about two
of their number who immediately began
digging a hole Mr Dorsey and his fam
ily appeared to be helpless Word was
telephoned to the Canton Police Station
and Patrolmen Mann Moore Sealover
Carter Hutching and Constable Grace
soon appeared on the scene Threats of
arrest made by the officers forced the
workmen to withdraw As soon as they
were off the sidewalk Miss Eslella Dor
sey a sister of the occupant of the house
made a dash for the hole She secured a
chair and wrapping herself in the folds
of an American Hag opendly defied the
The workmen soon gave up the fight
and withdrew Intil a late hour last
night a guard was kept by the residents
who feared an attack would be mtfde at
night The women did not stay outdoors
but a close watch was kept
About a ear ago the street was the
scene of a llvolj contest The workmen
were dcefated and yesterday was their
llrst appearance since that time
William C Dorsey a large property
owner in that section said last night that
tb2 failure of the railroad compuiy to

Violent Contempt for Hie lolce
CHICAGO Sept 10 Emma Goldman is
in the hands of the Chicago police The
woman whose teachings fired Czolgosz to
attack President McKInley and who may
have even a closer relation with the Buf
falo crime was taken Into custody at
303 Sheffield Avenue this morning by
Captain Schuettler of the Sheffield Avenue
police station the officer who first won
fame in the detection of the Haj market
A chirge of conspiracy to murder Presi
dent McKInley was at once lodged against
her Application for bail will be denied
by the police She Is now at the Har
rison Street police station annex This
afternoon the police also arrested Charles
G Morris at whose flat Miss Goldman
had been sheltered
The police are now seeking the two half
brothers and sltcr of Morris who also
dwelt in the Sheffield Avenue Hat They
charge that all are anarchists and that
thej knew the indentlty of the woman
who they were sheltering Miss Goldman
sent the following telegram shortly after
her arrest

Miss Goldman told Chief ONeill that she
was having a little fun at the expense
of the police department She had in
tended today to give herself up to the
If these officers had come twenty min
utes later I would not have been there
she said 1 would have been on m way
to deliver mjself to the police
An emphatic denial was given to the
suggestion that the assassin was spurred
to his deed by her utterances
I dont believe it she cried earnestly
I dont believe he ever said it- 1 have
read the accounts but I dont believe
they are true 1 never urged violence
31 j lectures have never been published in
pamphlet form or in a book They have
been printed In periodicals but they
never have advocated murder 1 do not
favor such means to our end
Her stories of the meeting with Czol
gosz tally with those of Isaak and of the
assassin himself
I met the man they say shot the Pres
ident It was in Chicago on July 12 I
would not know him If I should see him
again I did not learn his name but 1 do
remember afterward seeing his name
published In Tree Society with the
warning that he was a spy
I was to leave or Rochester that day
Miss Isaak was going with me and her
desire to see Niagara Palls and the Pan
American Exposition led me to make the
trip through Buffalo Just as we were
starting from the house with the party
which went to seo us off the door bell
rang Some one went to the door and the
stranger asked for Mr Isaak Mr Isaak
was not in but he was told that If he
would go to the Lake Shore station Mr
Isaak would be there One does not pay
heed to such things when parting from
friends I always stay at the Isaak home
and we are warm friends
My train went at S30 oclock so It was
quite dark when we got there Mr Isaak
was waiting for us and he introduced
the man Afterward I had a short talk
with him
1 came from Clev eland here said the
man I have heard jou lecture
He said he came to Isaakbecause the
latter was the publisher of Free Society
I only talked with him a few minutes I
cannot recall his features It was too
dark to distinguish them I think he had
light hair His hat was pulled down over
his ears and shaded his face so that I
could not distinguish his features at all
I would not know him again if I should
see him
1 have never heard of him since she
continued I never saw him before We
Miss Isaak and mjself arrived in Buf
falo the next daj Saturday and I left
on Monday We went to the Tails togeth
er and on Monday MJss Isaak was taken
to the exposition I did not care to go
because I had seen the Paris Exposition
and did not think the Buffalo Fair would
compare with It From there I went to
Rochester where I remained nearly six
weeks with my sinter Mrs 11 C Hoch
steln In Jackson Place
Miss Goldman wis asked Is the man
Morris with whom you are stopping an
No sir he Is not so far as I know
You would not Implicate everyone with
whom 1 talked In this case wnuld jou
One crazy man has done this deed and
because he sav s he is an anarchist vou
would Implicate all of us
JJO OU believe Miss uolaman Ihat
anything jou said Incited that man to
hlr deed was asked by Mayor Harrison
If he said that he is not an anarchist
That address dwelt particularly on the
mistaite oi people oi coniounaing anar
chy with violence I am not ph sonolo
gist enough to see what was going on In
that man s mind ard I am not responsi
ble for what he did but I know that wliat
I said did not Incite him to anything
How long have jou been In Chicago
I have been here sev eral days I have
been following the case closely but 1
thought I would give the police a little
fun I am rather glad I did not give my
self up earlier for It would have been
hard to cause this man to lose his posi
tion Pointing to Captain Schuettler
Proceeding she said
McKInley Is simply a tool In the hands
of the wealthy He is the most Insignifi
cant President the Unitetl States ever
had Still I do not see whit could come
out of killing him I know that there arc
people in desperate circumstances who
may be driven to commit desperate acts
Miss Goldman professed contempt for
the St Louis police She said I got to
Chicago Sunday leaving St Louis Sat
urday night I was In St Louis from
Thursday evening until Saturday nrht
I saw them but they did not see me
Why aid ou come here was jsed
I came here to get Isaaks out I was
at the house at 3003 Sbcflleld Avenue since
esterday afternoon I wanted to know
If bail would be allowed to get them out
of prison
She seemed to Ignore the police and re
marked that she wanted nothing to do
with policemen and that If they did not
make themtebes appear necessary to the
people they would starve to death for the
want of Intelligence Continuing she slid
I alwajs travel under an assumed
name and my last trip began at Pitts
burg whence I went to Cincinnati St
Louis Chicago and Buffalo I was In
Buffalo on August 13 but do not remem
ber having met any such man as
Su the police imagine thev are going
to make another affair like that of 1SSS
they are badly mistaken because they
will be unable to get any evidence at all
The speech 1 made to which Is ac
credited the inciting of the deed was on
behalf of modern phases of anarchs and
it contained nothing of a terrifying nature
and neither did it refer In any way to
the present The police are useless orna
ments and It is all their own talk
Major Harrison questione d her close-
ly on her connection with Chicago and
Paterson N J anarchists but ull her
answers were evasive carefully guarded
or else flat denials
New obstacles confront the Federal and
State authorities In Chicago in the possi
ble prosecution of Miss Goldman It Is
the opinion of several lawjers that Miss
Goldman cannot be extradited for trljl
in New York unless she and Czolgosz are
charged with an offence under the Federal
statutes The suggestion that the would
be assassin must be tried under State
laws ot New York for assault with intent
to kill would It is said preclude the pos
sibility of Silas Goldman being extradited
as an accessory before the fact a her
alleged Incendiary statements were not
made In New York and she Is not a fugi
tive from Justice from that State
It Is said however that she and Czol
gosz might be charged with an offence un
der section K0S of the Federal statutes
which fixes a ten year term of Imprison
ment and a 15000 fino for two or more per
sons who conspire to Injure any citizen
in the exercise of any rights secured to
him by the Constitution and laws of tho
United States The enforcement of this
statute against Miss Ooldmin and Czol
gosz would It Is -aid permit of the for

In speaking jesterday of the attack
upon tho President and of wajs to pre
vent the commission of crimes of a sim
ilar nature E Davis formerly
United States Attorney for tho District
Tho attack upon the President will
bring good out of evil If It shall cause an
overhauling of our laws respecting na
turalization and sedition and produce
proper legislation dealing with those sub
jects At present we have no law on the
subject of sedition except as applied to
the armv and navy and our laws relet
ting to naturalization nro grossly lax In
their provisions and administration
A review of the legislation respectinr
naturalization brings to light some inter
esting facts and suggests that in somu
particulars our forefathers were wiser
than ourselves Ever since the net of
29 1733 It has been a provision
of our naturalization laws that before an
applicant may be admitted to citizenship
he must provo hi3 residence In the coun
try for a specified time and also cause
It to appear to thfi satisfaction of the
court that elurlng that tlmo ho has be
haved as a man of good moral character
attached to the principles of the Consti
tution of tho United SUtes and well dis
posed to tho good order and happiness of
tho same This sounds very well In the
reading but as every lawyer knows the
proof by an applicant of his character
attachment to the principles of the Con
stitution and well disposition to tho good
order and happiness of the United States
Is quite uniformly of the most
sort Tho applicant brings to the
court two or three of his persona friends
who come for the purpose of helping him
to citizenship and they answer the most
formal questions propounded tho eourt
in the absence of any representative of
tho Government or opponent of any
sort It Is only occasionally that some
Judge subjects the applicant and his wit
nesses to anj thing like a rigid examina
tion and the result is that in ninety nine
cases In one hundred indeed In a great
er proportion than that the applicant Is
admitted to citizenship with scarcely any
more formalltj or consideration the
court than would attach to the signing
of an order of publication
I have often thought while witnessing
the proceedings in naturalization cases
of the loose way In which aliens be
come citizens and of the grave danger
which lurks In the existing practice The
act of June 18 1793 conlains some provi
sions which I think it -would be well for
Congress to recall Thlis It was provided
by that act that clerks of courts before
whom declarations of Intention were
made should certify and transmit to the
Secretary of State ab tracts of all such
declarations giving a suitable descrip
tion of the name age nation residence
and occupation for the time being of the
alien and should also afterward send to
the of State certified copies of
all records of naturalization The act
further provided that alL aliens residing
or arriving in the Unlteel States should
be reported to and registered by the clerk
of tho district court of the district of
residence or arrival or In some cases
to the collector of port of arrival or place
of residence or some ofJlcir or person
there or nearest thereto authorized by
the President to register aliens such re
port to be recorded In a book to be kept
for that purpose and a certificate of the
report and registry to be granted to the
person making the report and to each
individual concerned therein and a tran
script of such registry to be sent to the
clerk of the district court who should
rile the same in his office and enter and
transcribe it in a book Monthly returns
of all aliens registered were to be sent
by the clerk of the district court to tho
Department of State A penalty was pro
vided for every alien who should neglect
to make a report and he was obliged to
give surctj for his good behavior during
his residenee In the United States until
such report and registry should be made
and on failure to do so was to be com
mitted to JaiL When afterward the
alien applied for admission to citizenship
the date of his registry was taken as the
time when his residence within the Unit
ed States commenced
The act of April H 1S02 while continu
ing part of the provision for report and
registry omitted tho requirement respect
ing Its transmission to the Secretary of
State but the act of March 22 1S1C re
quired the certificate of report and regis
try and nlso the declaration of Intention
to be exhiolted by every alien on his ap
plication for citizenship and that each
should be recited at full length in the rec
ord of the court admitting the alien oth
erwise any pretended admission of an
n to be of no validity or effect
These very provisions do not
exist In the present laws governing nat
uralization and I have long been of opin
ion that the restoration
of some such pro
visions to the law would be most whole
some and Is as I think essential to the
proper government of the subject I
think that there should be created a bu
reau of naturalization under the State De
partment that every alien residing or ar
riving in the country should be required
to report and register as under the old
law that a certificate of his report ami
should be sent to the bureau of
naturalization which should at once
transmit a of the same to the United
btates Consul nearest the place of brth
or foreign residence of the alien that on
the application of the alien for admission
to citizenship notice of the applleation
should be given to the Consul and also by
publication at the place of residenee in
this countrj and the place of foreign resi
de nee of the applicant and that the
United States Attornej should In eaeh In
stanec appear before the court to vvhleh
application is made examine the appli
cant and present to the court certified
copies of all reeonls relating so the appli
cant und also such report at the Consul
maj h iv e made to the bureau This would
not be a verj cumbersome process and
would enable the court considering the
application to have the fullest possible
Information In relation to the applieant
and his fitness for citizenship In this
way undesirable applicants could be kept
from citizenship and the antecedents of
every applicant as to character politlcil
views and everything fully Investigated
and revealed
It Is contrary to the spirit of our peo
lle and institutions to talk of anj whole
sale exclusion of aliens This has
alwajs been consldyreel open to desirable
Immigration and it is a truism that some
of our best and most useful citizens have
either been foreignborn or born of for
eign parents We continue to In
vite Immigration but we should protect
ourselves against the atlmlsslon to either
residence or citizenship of tho undesira
ble and rash and wholesale measures are
not to be thought of In the premises
As respects uealtng -with undesirable
residents of the whether aliens
or not a very serious problem presents
Itself It Is provided by the Constitution
of the United States and of everj State
ccnstltutlon and Is bred in the bone of
our people that fr edom nf speech ami of
the press shall not be unduly curtailed
At the same time the right of self-preservation
is dominant with us as with all
peoples and we have the right to en tct
suitable legislation which on the one hand
will not unduly Irfrlnge freedom of
sreech or oh the other permit undue
license in the direction of abuse of our
sj fetcm of government or of those who ad
minister it
Tho famous act of July 11 171S in re
lation to sedition caused as is well
known the greatest commotion nnd was
for a time a living issue in the iolltlcs of
our countrj 1 the light of recent events
it Is almost Impossible to imagine why
such a commotion was created by the act
but at the time it was passed when tho
country was in a formative period and
we had but recently thrown oft th joke
of monarchj It was not unnatural that it
produced the discussion and disorders
which flowed from It The act provided
In substance ngnlnst unlawful comblna
tlonn or conspiracies to oppose any meas
ure or measures of the Government or to
impede the operation of anj law nf the
United States or to Intimidate or pre
vent pc son holding office under the
Government from undertaking perform

against tho counseling advising or at
tempting to procure any insurrection

whether such consplracj threatening
counsel advice or attempt should have
the proposed effc ct or not and It also
provided a for any person who
shoulel write print utter or publish or
cause or procure to be written printed
uttered tor published or should knowing
lj assist or aid In writing printing ut
tering or publishing false scanda
lous or malicious writing or writings
against the Government or either House
of Congress or the President with In
tent to elefame either or to hrlhg either
into contempt or disrepute or to excite
against them or any of them the hatreei
of the people or to stir up sedition within

or defeat anj such iaw or act or to aid

It will be observed that notwithstand
ing the somewhat sweeping provisions of
this act it did not assume to provide a
punishment for assaults upon or Indigni
ties to the President or any other officer
of the United States except In cases In
which hatred of the people toward the
President might be Incited or hlmsclf In
terfered with in the discharge of his du
ties This was undoubtedly because
Congress sought to avoid creating any
such offence as lese majeste but I see
no reason that a similar act might not be
passed extending to cases of assault upon
or Indignities to the President or other
high officer because of his holding his
office or carrjlng out the will of the peo
ple in the discharge of his duties I would
go further and In addition to providing
he should be driven from the cniintrv
If such a law were passed as I think It
properly can lie we would be able to
reach all persons who by incendiary
teachings or acts should attempt to bring
about a change in cither the spirit of our
institutions or the personnel of the offi
cers administering the Government
The attempt upon President McKln
lej s life I regard as the most atrocious
of the three assaults upon our Presidents
because It Is confessedly the fruit of an
archistic views and teachings which we
have too long permitted to go uncontrolled
Surely we have the right to say to those
living within our borders that their at
tempts to bring about a change In our
Institutions or laws should be confined
within the limits of legitimate discussion
aimed at bringing about a change in pub
lic opinion and the expression of such
change In due form of law and quite as
surelj we have the clear right to forbid
rabid and Inflammatory utterances
whether of Individuals or organizations
which are calculated to sap the founda
tions of our system and undermine and
uestroy good order The meeting of Con
ior me oetter control oi seditious speech
will not subside or mhterially lessen be
fore it shall have time to act and I be
lieve It to be the desire of the people
without regard to party that Congress
shall take prompt and decided action In
the desired direction

IJutiKer of n llelniine
Dr Wllli im C Woodward the District
Health Officer has been following the
press reporti from Buffalo caref ull and
has kept close vatch of the Presidents
condition as repealed by the bulletins
Speaking of the sjmptoms yesterday he
commented on the generally f uorablc
tone of the bulletins The one point he
thought which indicated the need of
great watchfulness- on the part of the
surgeons H the temperature
Dr Woodward said that while a tem
perature of 100 or thereabouts did not she
him any uneasiness he thought It rather
high under the circumstances In his
opinion It Indicates that the President is
not wholly oat of danger and he inti
mated that the presence of so high tem
perature might be an indication that
there Is a seat of trouble somewhere that
might et cause a relapse Dr Wood
ward said tint It must be remembered
that the bullet still in the Presidents
body is not sufficiently located to assure
the phsicians that it may not be a source
of danger nnd he thought it would be
well to keep these facta In mird while
hoping for the best and accepting the
general favorable smptoms
Dr Woodward stated that the tempera
ture reported In the bulletin should not
gie any anxiety but at the same time it
is sufficiently high to necessitate the
greatest watchfulness and to leave a
doubt as to recovery of the patient Un
til this element in the case is eliminated
Dr Woodward thought It was too early
to state that the President is actually be
yond elanger
