Czolgosz Is Being Fed Well by Police
His Demand on Capt. Regan for a Cigar, However, Is Met with Refusal by That Official.
Leon F. Czolgosz, Anarchist, who because of his
alleged belief attempted the life of President McKinley by cowardly shooting
him, is living better than he ever did before. His meals are served to him in
his cell, where he is constantly watched, but the food is cleaner, better cooked
and more wholesome than any heretofore placed before him, it is said.
Saturday noon he was served with roast pork, roast lamb, boiled potatoes, ear corn, sliced tomatoes, bread, butter and coffee. Saturday night he had cold roast pork, fried potatoes, bread and butter and tea. Yesterday morning he was given ham and eggs, fried potatoes, bread, butter and coffee.
After finishing his meal yesterday morning he appeared quite contented with his lot. The egotism which controls his brain made him believe that such food was natural to him and that he always should have as good as could be procured. In line with this idea the thought of a good cigar suggested itself. He told the guard that he wanted one, the request being almost a demand.
The guard went up stairs and informed Capt. Regan of what Czolgosz wanted. Capt. Regan was astounded for an instant. Then he turned around and with a variety of exclamation remarks, cried:
“You tell him to go to ——.”
Czolgosz will not have his appetite for tobacco gratified.
