Czolgosz Insists That He Alone Is Responsible
Another Pumping by Supt. Bull Fails to Elicit Any Complicity in the Crime.
Czolgosz was taken from the dungeon in the basement
at Police Headquarters at 11 o’clock this morning, and was removed to the freezer.
After being there a short time he was led down into Supt. Bull’s office and
was questioned at some length by Supt. Bull and a Secret Service agent. Of course,
what passed was not revealed to newspaper men.
It was learned from a reliable authority afterwards that he had made no additional admissions that would aid in solving the criminal side of the case.
He still sticks to his original admission that he alone plotted, conceived and carried out the crime, and that he must answer for it.
He has admitted to the police that he attended meetings presided over by Emma Goldman, the notorious “Red,” but at the same time he declares that none of them, except himself, had anything to do with the attack on the President. He asserts that he did not divulge to them his scheme.
