Assassin’s Father to Aid


In Drawing from Son Story of the Plot to Kill Nation’s Chief.

     Cleveland (Special).—Paul Czolgosz, the father of the assassin, will be taken to Buafflo [sic] by the police to aid them in their effort to solve the mystery of the plot to kill President McKinley. He professes little affection for the son who has made his name a disgrace and says his son has no claim to mercy. For the sake of making what amends he may for the crime of his son he will do all in his power to unravel the mystery of the assassination plot. Interpreters, unseen, will make record of every word that father and son utter, and the interview will be arranged to make its dramatic effect on the prisoner as intense as possible.
