     Lorin L. Lewis, Esq., of Buffalo, N. Y., one of the counsel appointed by the court to conduct the defence of the assassin, Czolgosz, writes us that the alleged interview, a report of which was published in some of the daily newspapers, in which he was represented as stating his belief in the prisoner’s insanity, was erroneous. We referred, in a recent editorial, to this alleged statement, and are glad to be able to chronicle the fact that such statement did not convey the counsel’s opinion.
