Czolgosz Sought Notoriety
Organized Lodge of Anarchists Six Years Ago Near
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Sept. 13.—It was
learned here to-day that Leon Czolgosz made of tour of the anthracite
coal regions about six years ago. He was employed for a while by
the Lackawanna Coal Company at Duryea, this county, and while there
is said to have organized a lodge of anarchists. He could speak
several languages, and soon became popular with the foreign element.
He was known then as Fred Nieman. People who came into contact with
Czolgosz then say he was after notoriety all the time, and whenever
the anarchists met he insisted on doing all the talking. His theory
was that the condition of the working people of this country never
would be improved until the doctrines advocated by the anarchists
were put into practice.
New York, Sept. 13.—John Most, arrested
last night on the charge of circulating incendiary literature, calculated
to incite unlawful acts, was arraigned in police court to-day. At
the prisoner’s request his examination was set for Monday. The assistant
district attorney asked that Most be held in $2,500 bail, but the
magistrate said the prisoner was charged only with a misdemeanor
and fixed the bail at $1,000. Most was locked up in default of bail.
