Mother Defends Her Daughter

     Rochester, N. Y., Sept. 9.—Emma Goldman, for whom the police of all the cities are searching, was born in Korovka, Russia, thirty-two years ago. She worked in a tannery and shoe factory here for several years, and later had a corset shop of her own.
     Of her daughter Mrs. Goldman said to-night:
     “Emma is a woman of superior intelligence. She knows that a President killed to-day could be replaced to-morrow and that nothing would be gained. She has never taught anarchism, murder, bloodshed nor incendiarism. She knows that these things cannot but fail of their object. Her whole life has been devoted to raising up the working man. When any great calamity has befallen a monarch or a ruler she has invariably expressed great regret or sorrow over the event. Emma was always an obedient child. She was affectionate, but inclined to brood over wrongs to her race. No one regrets more than my daughter the injury of President McKinley.”
