Anarchist Maggio Knows Much

     Leavenworth, Kan., Sept. 12.—Secret service detectives who have been in Leavenworth since Monday night looking up evidence against Antonio Maggio, who is under arrest in New Mexico, charged with having knowledge of a plot to kill President McKinley, are said to have hinted that the Italian knows more about the alleged plot than is generally supposed. They examined Frank Maggio, the suspect’s brother, and made inquiries for an Italian musician who was chummy with Antonio, and whose present whereabouts are unknown. Two of the detectives left the city last night and were followed today by a third secret service man, who continued the investigation with the aid of the local police.
     Santa Fe, N. M., Sept. 12.—Antonio Maggio, the anarchist, has been taken from Silver City to Albuquerque. He was cross examined and sweated but refused to divulge anything upon the subject of the president’s assassination, although witnesses were presented to prove that he made predictions that the president would be assassinated before October 1. He was bound over for court on the charge of conspiring to murder.
