Hanged in Effigy


Czolgosz and Emma Goldman Hanged in Counterfeit by Mobs.

     Chicago, Sept. 16.—The effigy of Czolgosz was set on fire to-night and hanged to an electric light pole at State and Madison streets, one of the busiest corners in Chicago. A large crowd shouted its approval of the demonstration and demanded similar treatment for Emma Goldman.
     Baltimore, Sept. 16.—Emma Goldman, the anarchist, was hanged in effigy late to-night from a telegraph pole here.
