City Hall Will Be Turned Over to Supt. Bull


World Wide Interest Centering in Czolgosz Trial Makes
Extraordinary Preparations Necessary.

     When the old Criminal Court room is opened tomorrow for the beginning of the Czolgosz trial it will be amply protected against an inrush of people, thousands of whom it is expected will attempt to obtain a view of the prisoner.
     World wide in its interest, it is expected that legal authorities, newspaper correspondents and laymen from all parts of the country will seek admittance into the courtroom. To avoid an overcrowding the county authorities were busy yesterday arranging plans for order. Supt. William F. Fisher and Sheriff Samuel Caldwell decided to turn the City Hall over to Supt. Bull of the Police lines will be established around the the [sic] newspaper reporters will be given preference in the admittance to those not actual participants in the case.
