Assassin Czolgosz Kept in Ignorance
He Does Not Know That McKinley Is Dead, and Will
Not Know until Trial.
WILL BE INDICTED TODAY BY ERIE COUNTY JURY
Trial Will Occur Within the Next Fifteen Days—Officers Did Not Talk
to Assassin Yesterday—Poisoned Bullet Not Discussed.
Buffalo, N. Y., September
15.—The assassin, Czolgosz, does not yet know that President McKinley
is dead and probably will not know it until he is arraigned for
murder. He will be indicted by the grand jury, probably tomorrow,
and the case will then be removed to the supreme court. The arraignment
will take place in that court and will be very soon, the exact time
depending on the time of the returning of the indictment. No further
effort was made by the officers today to talk with Czolgosz, nor
was the theory of poisoned bullets taken up by the police. They
feel confident that when the bullets remaining in the revolver are
chemically examined, as they undoubtedly will be, no poison will
be found on them.
As to Emma Goldman, the situation
stands unchanged, the police holding there is not sufficient evidence
on which to ask for her extradition.
To Be Tried in Fifteen Days.
Governor Odell announced
today that he had declined to call a special term of the supreme
court to try the murderer of the president, as no such haste was
necessary. He said that the district attorney had assured him that
the grand jury would indict and the case will be on trial within
fifteen days, and to call a special term to get a jury assembled
would take more time than that. The assassin is in the Erie county
