Final Report in the Czolgosz Case

     In a former issue of the AMERICAN JOURNAL OF INSANITY, reference was made to the dignified character of the legal proceedings in this celebrated case. By a proper concert of action on the part of the experts for the prosecution and defense, an entire unanimity of opinion was reached as to the mental soundness and responsibility of the assassin of the President. We would call attention at this time to the able, clear and satisfactory presentation in the article of Dr. MacDonald of the reasons which led the respective experts to adopt these conclusions. It is difficult to conceive how other conclusions could have been reached. The papers, both of Dr. MacDonald and Mr. Spitzka, constitute a strong vindication of the action taken in the trial and execution of Czolgosz.
