PRECAUTIONS FOR. THE PROTEC
TION OP THE TOURIXG RULERS.
Frontiers of France, Switzerland
andItaly Will Be Guarded Talk
of an International Conference
LONDON, Sept U. Stimulated by the
attaclts upon President McKinley, Conti
nental governments are adopting the
greatest precautions to insure the safety
of the touring sovereigns. Twenty-five
thousand troops will be employed in
Prance to protect the routes taken by
The French, Swiss and Italian Govern
ments hve ordered their police to exer
cise the greatest vigilance on the fron
tiers, in the expectation that frightened
anarchists will seek refuge in flight.
The supposition that anarchism might
form a. subject of conversation at the
meeting of the rulers was probably the
origin of the unfounded rumor that Em
peror "William would call an International
conference to deal with the evil. f
THE ROTAIi DECLARATION.
Cardinal Tanprhan Says It Is Blas-
NEW YORK, Sept. 10. Cardinal
Vaughan -made a striking address at the
opening of the Catholic conference in
Newcastle last night, says a London dis
patch to the Times. The cardinal Im
plored Catholics to call themselves Cath
olicsRoman Catholics if they pleased,
but preferably Catholics.
"Indeed," the cardinal went on to say.
"it is important in this country that we
call ourselves 'Catholics,' rather than Ro
man Catholics, because a false mean
ing is more often attached to the latter
than the former term'
In speaking of the royal declaration,
the cardinal said that it was the accepted
decision of the country that the King
must be a Protestant. It was expedient
that the King should be of the religion of
the overwhelming majority of his subjects.
Catholics, however, had no difficulty in
giving their loyal allegiance to a Protest
ant sovereign, and In this they seemed
more liberal and of a more confiding tem
per than those who refused allegiance to a
King not professing their creed. Cath
olic Belgium placed Protestant Leopold on
the throne and gave him as hearty devo
tion as had ever been shown to his Cath
olic successor. Sixteen millions of Ger
man Catholics were not less loyal to
their Protestant Emperor than the mil
lions of his subjects who were Protest
ants or of no religion.
The Cardinal pointed out that it would
be no gain to the English Catholics to
have a Cathclic Kins. The King was
7Tt an absolute monarch. They must
-iirst convert the House of Commons.
Next session, continued the speaker. Par
liament might settle forever the position
ot Christianity in this country when sre
ondary and middle-class education wouid
be "thrown in the melting pot."
The gravamen of the King's declaration,
said the cardinal later in his speech, did
not lie with His Majesty, but on religious
prejudice. Bigotry had never tainted
King Edward's conduct. The declaration
as it stands was called by Cardinal
Yaughan blasphemous, and an insult to
three-fourths of Christendom. As a guar
antee, he said, it wa? a sham. As for
the House of Lords amendment, it singled
cut the Catholics' holy religion for sol
emn denunciation. If there must be a
declaration, let it be one to the effect
that the King was a Protestant, and let
it end there.

LONDON, Sept. 10. The Tangier corre
spondent of the Times eays the distur
bances in the country are increasing, and
amount aimost to anarchy in many dis
tricts. The Minister of Foreign Affairs believes
that the Spanish captives carried off last

remanded, was brought up again in the
same court today. Dr. Kraus was in
formed that a warrant charging him with
Incitement to murder was Issued in the
Sir George S. Lewis, on behalf of the
prisoner, said it seemed strange, since Dr.
Kraus had been in England 14 months as
a paroled prisoner of war, that warrants
should be issued in the Transvaal because
of acts committed in England, and he
asked how could a gentleman not an Eng
lish! subject be charged with high treason.
The case was, adjourned to await the ar
rival of papers from the Transvaal.

News from Silver City, N. M., says:
Antonio Maggio, the alleged anarchist,
who was arrested yesterday at Santa

His Kansas City Record.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 10. An inves
tigation of the local record of Antonio
Maggio, the Italian, who is said to have
predicted the death of President McKln
ley, and who is under arrest in New
Mexico, reveals the fact that he was the
leader of a considerable band of anar
chists In Kansas City two years ago.
These men had regular meetings in the
rear of a barber shop kept by Maggio,
and it is stated that the "removal" of
the President of the United States was
the principal -subject of discussion. Mag
gio and his associates, all of whom were
Italians were disciples of Emma Gold
man, for whom Maggio had a sort of
veneration. It was from her, it is said,
that Maggio imbibed his anarchist ideas.
One of Maggio's associates, still in the
city, is known to the police, but has not
Ed Andrews, manager of the Andrews
opera company, with which Maggio was
formerly engaged as a cornetist, is in
"Several members of our company,"
said Mr. Andrews, today, "were, in the
habit of discussing economic and social
questions, and 'Tony' cut in with his an
archistic doctrines. Maggio said no man
had a right to rule another, and ono day
said tho blood of every soldier killed in
the Philippines was on President McKln
ley's hands, and the only way the com
mon people could assert their rights was
by assassination. Early last February
he told me distinctly to watch for an im
portant event before October. He assured
us that President McKinley would be
killed before that month came."
Maggio left the company at Silver City,
N. M.. Mr. Andrews said, because his
sympathies were enlisted with an anarch
ist in prison there.

FAULT OF THE GOVERNMENT.
Secret Service Department Handi
capped by Lack of Funds.
CINCINNATI, Sept. 10. Clyde M. Allen,
editor of the International Police Journal,
the organ of the National Association of
Chiefs of Police of the United States and
Canada, said today:
"The fact that anarchists are rampant
in the United States today is due to the
parsimony of the Government. It Is a
notorious fact among police officers that
the secret service department Is so badly
handicapped by lack of funds that it
cannot keep track of counterf eiters.to say
.nothing of watching anarchists. It is
one of the most important and still most
neglected departments of the Government.
Long before President McKinley fell a vic
tim to anarchism the members of the
Chiefs of Police Association of the United
States and Canada realized the necessity
of suppressing anarchists. With that in
view it had been planned to ask the next
session of Congress to establish a National
bureau of identification at Washington,
under the supervision of the Government,
to keep track of the movements of every
anarchist. Affiliations will be had with
similar bureaus in other countries, many
of which have already requested such an
interchange of information. The call for
action by Major Sylvester, president of
the association, is but a part of the plan
to bring all the police of the United States,
Canada and the world in close touch.
"The next meeting of the association to
which the chiefs of police of the world
will be Invited and which promises to be
come an anti-anarchist congress has been
called for next May in Louisville.
Czolgosz Born in Detroit.
DETROIT, Sept. 10. From 1874 to 1875
the family of Leon Czolgosz, the assailant
of President McKinley, 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 Benton
street in 1S74. Inquiry In this neighbor
hood developed several people who had
known the familv. J. J. Lorkowski. a
prominent Polish saloon-keeper, lived'
across from the Czolgosz family on Ben
ton street, and knew the father well. He
Is sure that the boy born in Benton
street in 1874 was Leou, 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 Lorkowski, who is an Intelligent
man. he said many Polish boy do not
know their age, and he presumed that
Czolgosz Is not sure of his.
The People Must Be Protected.
NEW YORK, Sept. 10. A Tribune spe
cial from Buffalo says:
"Have the members of the Cabinet dis
cussed repressive measures for anarch
ists?" Secretary Wilson was asked.
"It has been touched on Informally in
conversation," said Mr. Wilson. "It is
more properly a state than a National
matter. Congress can go only just so far.
I look to see new legislation In all the
states having a considerable foreign-born
population. The trouble with anarchists
is that they do not know when they are
well treated. In Europe they are hounded
about Generations of oppression and
class distinction havo bred in them dis
content and envy. They come hero and
at onco begin a propaganda against of
ficials who are working all the while for
their amelioration. The people of the
United States certainly must protect
themselves against reptiles of that de
scription." Anarchists Cannot Be Kept Out.
NEW YORK, Sept. 10. Immigration
Commissioner Fitchie, who is in charge
of Ellis Island, says that It is impossible
to keep anarchists out of the country.
"The law at present atates plainly that
no one shall be refused admittance be
cause of his political beliefs," the Com
missioner added, "and the only way that
an anarchist can be kept out is by
proving that he had a criminal record on
the other side."
The declaration was made in response to
a 'query as to what would be done in re
gard to a number of anarchists who are
on their way over here fromv England.
Scotland Yard officials had cabled de
scriptions of these men, and it was
thought that their entrance to this coun
try could be prohibited.
"These anarchists in most cases are not
pauperst and meet all the requirements of
the immigration laws," the Commissioner
Heard the Plot Discnssed.
CHICAGO. Sept. 10. Charles P. Mc
Murray, employed by a wholesale grocery
house In this city, has notifledthe police
that on the night of July 12 or 13, he is
not sure which, while waiting for a eub
urban train at the main station of the
Illinois Central Railroad, he 'overheard
three men discussing plans to kill Presi
dent McKinley and two well-known New
York capitalists. After talking a few min
utes, the three shook hands and went
toward the Michigan Central train for
Buffalo. McMurray eays he told the
policeman on duty at the station, and
after a few days had practically forgot
ten the occurrence. The description of
one of the men given by McMurray is not
unlike the appearance of Czolgosz, and
It Is known that on July 12 he was in
Chicago, going East to Buffalo that night.
Keeping Them Out of Wisconsin.
MILWAUKEE, Sept. 10. Senator Julius
E. Roehr will Introduce a bill In the next
Besslon of the Legislature to exclude from
the state all anarchists and all those en
gaged In teaching the -doctrines of law
lessness. "I believe," he said, "that the best way
to fight anarchy, anarchists and anar
chism Is to make this class keep out of
th.e state. Every state ought to pass such
laws, and then there would be no preach
ing of lawlessness In the country. I in
tend to introduce such a measure at the
next session of the Legislature unless be
fore that time there are better plans de
vised for fighting anarchy and anar
chism.'1 Money Jtor Czolgosz.
NEW YORK, Sept. 10. A special to the
Herald from Buffalo says:
Mrs. Czolgosz, mother of the man who
attempted to assassinate President Mc
Kinley, was in Buffalo Monday. She
made no attempt to see her son.
In some mysterious manner, however,
he learned of her presence here, and when
District Attorney Penny asked him If he
wanted a lawyer, Czolgosz said:
"No, I want no lawyer now. When tho
time come I will be supplied with coun
sel, and there will be plenty of money
for my defense."
Census of New York Anarchists.
NEW YORK, Sept 10. Police Chief Mur-
nhv today published a general order to J
all the commanding officers in the police
department, directing them to -take a
census of all anarchists living in their
districts, and to forward the list to. bead
quarters, where the detective department
is to conduct a general surveillance upon
the anarchists of the city.
Dragnet for Anarchists.
NEW YORK, Sept. 10. A special to the
Herald from Buffalo says:
From two sources, each of which is un
impeachable, it is learned that the police
of tho United States are nearly ready to
draw a dragnet and capture a host of an
archists, all of whom are believed to be
concerned in the plot to murder President
McKinley and other representatives of
the Government. Emma Goldman is be
lieved to bo a leader in the conspiracy.
The police of this city have questioned a
relative of hers, from whom much infor
mation of value was obtained. Evidence
is not lacking that tho plot was at least
partly concocted in Buffalo.

offer terms of peace to the steel corpora

dent was averse to making any statement
on this, but he finally said: "No, I am
not going tonight, and I will go further
and say that I do not intend to go to
New York now or at any other time
At the office of the United States Steel
Corporation, In the Carnegie building, it
is stated that the officials knew nothing
of the settlement reported In Wall street
They refused to discuss the rumor. Sec
retary vTJghe said concerning the report
of a settlement: "That report is just
to work thev stock market. There is noth
ing to it"v Secretary Williams said:
"There is nothing at all in it that I know
A report from New York today that the
strike had been, settled was denied by
President Shaffer. He also denied that
he or his advisory board had been, di
rected or ordered by the executive board
to settle the strike. To several of the
district headquarters members of the ex
ecutive board the report was sent last
Dr. Roswell Parke, One of the Presi
Saturday and again Monday that President
Shaffer was being pushed to end the
strike promptly. These members sent
these reports to their constituents to keep
them in. line while the general execu
tive board remained in session.
Since the .executive board first urged
on President Shaffer that he go after a
settlement, it is said the Amalgamated
President has endeavored, to open direct
negotiations with the corporation officials
with the hope of getting better terms
than those secured through the efforts of
the committee of the National Civic Fed
eration. This failed, it is said, and the
combine stands o offer no better terms
than those given, to the Civic Federation
people. Besides, it is said by representa
tives of the corporation, that just as fast
as additional mills are started by the oper
ating officials of the constituent compan
ies of the corporation, they will be added
to the growing list of mills eliminated
from the union list
The combine officials are busy with ar
rangements to s'tart Idle mills. The plant
at Chester, W. "Va., originally built as
a sheet plant, but never operated as such,
Is scheduled for an early start by the
American Tin Plate Company.
An Exciting Day.
The strike today In this section was full
of exciting incidents, and unless a speedy
settlement of the troubles is effected, in
dications point to exceedingly lively times
from now on. That both sides are deter
mined on a desperate fight seems evident.
Tho first evidence of this was shown
In the early hours of the day, when a
gang of bricklayers attempted to enter
the National Tube plant, at McKeesport.
The strikers, encouraged by their suc
cess in preventing the workmen secuied
by the company from entering the mill
yesterday, were on hand this morning In
great numbers, and when the bricklayers
made their appearance to go in to make
repairs, the strikers turned them back.
No actual violence resulted,, but had tho
workmen insisted on their right to enter
some persons would surely have been
hurt. The tubeworkers who were turned
back yesterday, did not venture out today,
and the plant is tonight dark and Idle.
It was reported that the management had
come to Pittsburg to secure the protec
tion of Sheriff McKinley, but tonight the
Sheriff said no call had been made upon
The Demmler plant was in partial oper
ation today. This notice was posted on
"Referring to notice on August 27, issued
by the American Tlnplate Company, we
state that the same conditions exist today.
Negotiations are on foot for a settlement
of the strike, and the Demmler mill will
now and forever after run the same as
other mills of the company non-union."
It was announced today that the Mo
nongahela Tlnplate Works, on the South
Side, Pittsburg, would bo started soon.
In preparation for this move the company
this evening endeavored to place in the
plant cots for the workers, but was pre
vented from doing so by a hostile demon
stration In behalf of the strikers. A team
ster with a wagon load of cots was
stopped on the street and a crowd of
women pulled the cots and bedding from
the wagon. Some o"f the women ran into
their houses and came out with oil cans
and poured the contents over the cots,
which had been piled in two heaps on
Fourteenth street. In an Instant two
huge bonfires were blazing briskly, while
the women executed a war dance about
the fires and pelted each other with pil
lows and bedding which had fallen from
the wagon. As soon as a call could be
sent in, 15 or 20 policement rushed to the
scene of action and restored order.
The bar mill of the Painter plant, on
the South Side, started on the night turn
this afternoon with a crew of 30 men.
Reports from other portions of the dis
trict show no material change from last
No Strike in Kansas.
PITTSBURG, Kan., Sept. 10. The "Big
Four" companies, with the exception of
the Western Coal & Mining Company,
have all posted notices offering the men
63 cents a trin for mine-run coal, an eight
hour day and the other concessions, with
a few exceptions, that the union contract,
known as the Kansas City contract, asks.
The Western Coal & Mining Company
professes to have a contract yet in force,
but upon the whole offers' ihe same con
cessions. It is believed that this fore

tlon that the, recovery of the distinguished
man was now almost absolutely assured.
' Secretary Hay Arrived.
At 7.30 an automobile drove up, and Im
mediately Secretary Hay alighted. He
walked up from the corner toward the
house, when he was met by one of tho
secret servlco agents. He asked if the
people were up, and, being told that no
body had yet come from their rooms, he
decided not to ask admission. He was
shown the early morning bulletin, and
said wnen he read it: "Good. The coun
try will rejoice." He went down to the
Buffalo Club, promising to return later.
Secretary of tho Navy John D. Long is
now the only member of the Cabinet who
has not been here since tho shooting.
The weather conditions today were any
thing but cheerful during the early houra,
and the dull skies and drizzling rain gave
an outward appearance of gloom and de
pression. The forecast was for showers
and an east wind, but the realization was
worse than the prophecy. For t'he first
time since the shooting, the sun was hid
den by heavy clouds. The bracing air
that has lent some comfort to the patient
thus far gave way to the chill and muggy
wind from the east. For a time the rain
pelted the. military guards and trickled
down their guns. But these more inclem
ent conditions passed away by S o'clock,
the rain stopped, but the dark skies and
soggy grounds remained. As the doctors
arrived it was noted that they wore over
coats and were bundled up.
The Morning Consultation.
About 8 o'clock the doctors who had not
been with the President during tho night
began putting in an appearanqo for the.
formal morning consultation. Dr. Mynte
was the first to arrive. He was followed
soon by Dr. Wasdln, the Marine Hospital
Corps specialist; Dr. McBurney, of New
York, and the others in attendance. At
this time, too, the night watch nurses
vere lelleved, and t'hose who had been In
tho sickroom for the night came out for
a short period of relaxation. While tho
doctors remained Insldo there were no
sjgns of animation about the house, and
there was a long wait for the results of
The result of the morning consultation
was made known about 9 o'clock, as the
doctors came from the house, although it
was somo time after that that t'he bulle
tin appeared. The faces of the doctors
clearly Indicated their satisfaction at the
condition of affairs. As Dr. Roswell
Parke came to his carriage he paused long
enough to give a general survey of the
"The condition of the President this
morning is entirely satisfactory," said he.
"The bulletin will state this, and it sums
up the situation. The President spent
tho most comfortable night he has since

bulletins were most conservative, and
gave results such as the medical frater

tho case of any citizen.
"It would be well to have it stated," he
added, "that the President is -not being

tho fact that the official bulletins are
based on rigid scientific principles, as they
aro applicable alike to all cases of sur

Dr. Wasdin said: "I have believed
throughout that the President had a fair
chance of recovery. I now desire to Fay
that the chances against that recovery
are very slight. His temperature is splen
did and his pulse Is getting normal."
Dr. McBurney Confident.
Dr. McBurney was in high spirits as
he walked away from the residence short
ly after the other physicians had gone.
His face was wreathed n smiles.
"Is the President out of danger?" ho
was asked by an Associated Press repre
sentative. "We believe he is practically out of dan

Then he paused.
"Of course," be added, "there are fcIH
possibilities in the case, and we will
know better when a week has gone by.
But his improvement Is so marked, his
symptoms are so good, that we feel safs
in assuring the public that he will recov

soon will the secondary operation for the
extraction of the bullet be performed?"
"Never," replied the surgeon. "That

He shook his head. "Why should we?"
he asked. "To satisfy our curiosity?
That would be Its only purpose."
Dr. McBurney's supreme confidence in
the outcome could not be overstated. His
manner and bearing all testified to the
conviction he felt. There were none of
the reservations he made yesterday. Yes
terday he plainly showed he was not yet
satisfied. He then said a week would
elapse before definite assurance could be
given. This morning the President's con
dition was so eminently satisfactory that
he felt safe in his announcement that the
danger ppint had been passed and that
the President was on the high road to

With these cheerful words the surgeon

news to the Secretary of War.
President A?ked for Papers.
The President asked for the papers
again, today, and also asked when he
would be allowed to sit up. With tho
exception of the physicians and attend
ants, only Mrs. McKinley and Secretary
Cortelyou have been admitted to his pres
ence. The report that his brother, Abner
McKinley. saw him yesterday is incor

Root Hitchcock, and Postmaster-General
Smith were all at the house together at
11 o'clock. Vice-President Roosevelt de
parted from the residence at 12:30, leaving
the members of the Cabinet still there.
"The President's recovery is assured,"
said he to a newspaper man. "All around,
I am convinced of it."
"You consider the President completely
out of danger?"
"I do," he replied, in his emphatic way.
"I feel certain, of It"
Vice-President Roosevelt read with eag

clapped his hands joyously and with
tears in his eyes said to Mr. Wilcox, his

declined the invitation with some little
vehemence. He said:
"I do not believe, even though I am as
sured of the President's convalescence,
that It would be entirely proper for me
to take part In any of the festivities. I
have studiously refrained from going out
or being entertained during my visit, and
I will continue that policy until I leave.
I came here absolutely as a matter of

people, and not for pleasure."
Meeting of the Cabinet.
The members of the Cabinet came from
tho house about 1 o'clock. While the
Cabinet officers were inside, there was
considerable informal discussion of
business, but nothing in the na
ture of a Cabinet meeting. As
to the condition, of the President, all the
Cabinet members were in the happiest
frame of mind. They accepted the bul
letins as assurances that the President
The doctors stated as they came from
the afternoon consultation that the condi
tions were unchanged and were as favor
able as this morning. Dr. Roswell Parko
said as he came from the consultation:
"The conditions remain as they were
this morning. If the last bulletin is not
more favorable than the ono before it. It
is because that was so entirely favorable
that it is difficult to state the facts more
specifically. The President has enjoyed
some sleep since morning. He continues
cheerful. He has not talked, as we con
tinue to restrain him from that effort."
The other physicians expressed substan
tially similar views. Dr. Parke paused as
he came from the house for an extended
talk with Abner McKinley as to the Pres
Mrs. McKinley and Mrs. McWllIIams
started for a drive at 2:35 P. M.
The Evening Consultation.
It was 11:20 o'.clock when the physicians
emerged from the house. They had been
in consultation an hour and 50 minutes,
and announced to the waiting newspaper
men that the President's condition was
unchanged In every particular.
The length of the consultation had cre
ated some uneasiness, and It was some
what increased whtjn. it was learned that
Dr. McBurney. who had intended to leave
for Stockbridge.Conn., at 12:20, had missed
his train, and had decided to remain over
until tomorrow night. The doctor himself
did all he could to dispel the idea that
the change in his plans pretended any
thing serious. In fact he took occasion
to announce as an additional evidence of
the Improvement of the patient that it
hnd been decided to begin to give the
President nourishment through the mouth
tonight. Instead of waiting until tomor
row as had been intended. Beef extract
had been prepared. Dr. McBurney an

as the physicians left.
The other physicians- who listened to
Dr. McBurney's statement assented to It,
and then all entered an automobile and
were taken away.
Immediately afterward a storm which
had been gathering broke, and for a few
minutes the rain came down in torrents.
AH Quiet This Morning.
BUFFALO, Sept. 11. At 3:15 A. M.,
everything was quiet around the Milburn
house. No one appeared to be stirring
within and no one had left the house
since the Issuance of the midnight bul
letin. 5 A. M. One of the nurses who has Just
come from the room reports that the
President is sleeping quietly. The entire
private part of the house is very quiet,

ROOSEVELT GOES TO OYSTER BAY.
Perfectly Confident That the Presi
dent Will Recover.
BUFFALO. Sept. 10. Vice-President
Roosevelt left the city tonight at 9:50
for Oyster Bay, perfectly confident that
the President will recover. So confident
was he in fact that when a question of
doubt was put to him, he answered it
will a parry. He was then asked:
"Do you remember that President Gar
field progressed for 10 days and that then.
just when he was ready to get up, ha
collapsed and finally died?"
"Ah, but you forget 20 years of modern
surgery progress. From what I can learn
also, the Garfield wound was much more
serious than the wound of President Mc
Klnley. I believe that the President will
recover, and I believe it so thoroughly
that I leave here tonight."
Questioned a3 to the mode of procedure,
so far as the state was concerned, he said:
"I see no need for the call of an ex
traordinary grand Jury- The grand jury
now in session, composed of American
citizens, will, undoubtedly, take care of
the would-be assassin and the authorities
of Erie County will, for county, state
and national pride, make a vigorous pro
secution. Unless Governor Odell Is asked
to Interfere, I see no need of his calling
an extra term or deputizing an assistant
Attorney-General to prosecute."
Asked as to the enacting of legislation
against anarchists, he said:
"I have not thought much on the mat
ter. What has disturbed me is to find a
reason for even anarchists to attack a
man like President McKinley. Here Is the
one country where they are allowed per
fect freedom, of speech. Here the ruler
Is a man descended from farmer stock,
self-made. Here Js a man who has no
fortune or no means other than that
which be may manage to save out of hla
salary as President. Probably many a
worklngman in the United States today
has a larger amount of real estate than
Mr. McKinley. In addition, he is kindly
disposed and a Christian gentleman, and
in every great emergency in which he
could act he has been a friend of the
common people. Why should he be shot
at then, even by anarchists?"
