Goldman Indifferent


Anarchist Queen Made Single Comment at News of Death, Showing
No Sign of Regret or Pity.

     CHICAGO, Sept. 14.—When shown the press despatch announcing the death of the president, Emma Goldman, the anarchist now being held at the Harrison street station, carefully adjusted her glasses, 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 affect 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 they have none. They are holding me without evidence. The death of McKinley will 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.”
