Goldman Has No Sympathy


Arch Priestess of Anarchy Shows Utter Indifference at News That President Is Dying.

     Chicago, Sept. 13.—When shown the Associated Press dispatch announcing the inevitable death of the president, Emma Goldman, the anarchist lecturer, now being held, carefully adjusted her glasses and read the bulletin and, after a moment’s pause, without a change of expression said: “Very sorry.” Absolutely no shade of regret or pity showed itself upon her countenance.
     “I do not see how that can effect my case,” she added. “If it is carried on lawfully and legally, they have no evidence against me. Chief Bull and Chief O’Neill have admitted that they have none. They are holding me without evidence. The death of McKinley would only lengthen my term of imprisonment if they convicted me. I feel very bad for the sake of Mrs. McKinley, outside of that I have no sympathy.”
