Protests Her Innocence Vigorously.
Will Not Go to Buffalo without Fight.
Miss Goldman Demands an Immediate Trial.
Chicago, Sept. 11.—(Spl.)—Emma Goldman
and Charles G. Norris, in whose house she was arrested, were arraigned
this morning to answer to the charge of conspiracy to assassinate

but the City Prosecutor asked for a continuance to Sept. 19, when

interviews were criticised with her customary vigor. The pictures
of her, she said, made her look like an ex-convict. At 7 o’clock
she was taken to the station assembly room and provided with the
breakfast of coffee and black bread.
