Czolgosz Is Feeling Well
Assassin of President McKinley Eats and Sleeps Regularly
and Does Not Seem Particularly Downcast.
Auburn, Oct. 14.—“Absolutely nothing new with
Czolgosz,” was Warden Mead’s reply to a question of an Associated Press representative
this morning. He has not asked for any spiritual adviser whatsoever. The death
warrant has not been read to him as yet. He has not suicided nor given the least
intimation that he would like to make way with himself, contrary reports notwithstanding.
Of course he will not be given the slightest opportunity for this purpose. He ate heartily of his breakfast this morning and has not a complaint about his health. Warden Mead’s greatest puzzle is how to get the hundreds of applications from all parts of the country cut down to the limit prescribed by the state law.
New York, Oct. 14.—Il Movimento, an Italian paper published in Paterson, N. J., makes the statement that scores of Italians have been discharged from the silk mills in that city since the assassination of the President because of their nationality.
The paper strongly protests, and declares that there was nothing in common between the Italians and McKinley’s slayer.
