No Evidence of Plot


Anarchists Arrested in Chicago Will Probably Be Released.

Special to The New York Times.

     CHICAGO, Sept. 16.—Efforts to connect the Chicago Anarchists with a plot to assassinate President McKinley will be abandoned, and the prisoners, including Emma Goldman, probably will be released to-morrow. This decision was reached by local authorities to-day after advices from Buffalo that no evidence had been secured connecting the Chicago Anarchists with the crime committed by Czolgosz.
     Chief O’Neill received a telegram from Chief of Police Bull of Buffalo early in the day announcing that, while the police were still working to establish the connection of the assassin with Anarchists in Chicago, Toledo, and Cleveland, they had secured no tangible evidence.
     Dr. Isaac Saylim, the Buffalo physician arrested here for an investigation of his dealings with Emma Goldman, was released by Magistrate Prindeville to-day. There was no evidence against him.
