Would Bury Czolgosz in the Deep Sea

 

Gov. Odell Asked Not to Permit His Bones to Mingle with American Soil.
——
NEBRASKA STUDENTS ADOPT RESOLUTIONS.
——
They Endorse the Sentiment of Chancellor Huntington Expressed in His
Memorial Address on McKinley.

     LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 8.—Five hundred students of Wesleyan University, the strongest Methodist college in the Northwest, have sent to Gov. Odell of New York, a set of resolutions, together with a letter, suggesting his fulfillment of their wishes. The resolutions are, in part:
     “Resolved, That we, students of Nebraska Wesleyan University, in chapel assembled, hereby indorse as most appropriate, the disposal of the assassin’s body as suggested by Chancellor Huntington in his memorial address for the late President, namely:
     “‘I crave for the assassin of President McKinley one mark of distinction. He has earned it and I would it might be awarded him. His bones should never be allowed to mingle with American soil. When the great sentence shall be executed, as it should be with swift justice becoming such an unspeakable tragedy, we could wish the United States Government would take the remains of the atrocious murderer 100 miles to sea and then, pinioned and manacled, with his revolver in his belt and a millstone chained about his neck, sink the corpse a thousand fathoms to the bottom of the ocean, that thus the anarchist might be warned that he shall not have so much as a grave in a civilized land.’”
