The Pursuit of Anarchism

Once the assassin was behind bars, immediately the whole police and detective service, not only of the United States, but of Europe was set at work pursuing investigations which might shed light on the affair. Persons known to be anarchists were arrested in Chicago, and elsewhere similar folk were put under surveillance, not so close, however, in many of the smaller towns and in Boston but that meetings could be held on Sunday at which satisfaction with Czolgosz’s deed was expressed and with no police interference. Thus far no evidence of Czolgosz having acted in concert with others has been secured, but by his own admission he was led to acceptance of anarchistic views and to a determination to action through the teachings of Emma Goldman, and steps for her detention have been taken.
