Newark, N. J., April 21.—An alleged plot on the part of the Pennsylvania anarchists, who are said the have headquarters at Hazleton, to assassinate President Roosevelt is being investigated by the United States secret service. Information which led to the investigation was given to the officers by Chief of Police Adams a few days ago, just before he shot and killed himself.
Revealed by Conspirator.
The chief told the secret service
officials that he obtained his information from Jan Bartula, who recently came
there from Audenreid, Pa., who claims to be a member of the band of conspirators.
He said they had gone back on him, and it was with a desire to be revenged upon them that he exposed the plot. He gave Chief Adams the names of several persons who, he said were
Implicated in the Plot,
and further said that Czolgosz, who assassinated President McKinley, had been a member of the band. Chief Flynn of the New York district of the United States secret service has had several men at work on the case ever since the information was given him by Chief Adams. They have interviewed Bartula, and he told them practically the same story.
