Is Emma Goldman a Russian Spy?

     Washington, Sept. 17.—There are good reasons to believe that Emma Goldman, while posing as an anarchist, is in reality a paid agent of the Russian government: in other words, a spy. A well-known Russian of this city, who was for years in close touch with high officials of the white czar, made the following statement in regard to this matter to a correspondent today:
     “Emma Goldman is a Russian spy and in the pay of the third section of the police of that country. She was, and I believe is, constantly in communication with the former and the present Russian consul-general at New York, and her work for that government was very effective.
     “The pay of the Russian government is her real source of income.
     “I am in a position to state that Goldman was regularly giving information to the Russian consul-general.”
