Maggio Trial [excerpt]
Special to The Citizen.
Silver City, N. M., Sept. 25.—At the Maggio hearing at 10 a. m. before Commissioner Newcomb several witnesses were placed on the stand, who stated that the prisoner told them months ago that the president would be killed before October 1.
Maggio on the stand denied the statements and made a long talk. He said that he was an anarchist, but not against the United States, but his own country, Italy, and driven to the belief by the hardships of the poor classes in Italy.
No substantial evidence was introduced by the prosecution and Maggio was bound over to await the United States grand jury at Las Cruces on October 7, under $10,000 bond.
