Czolgosz Is Already in the Death Cell at Auburn
Prison Awaiting the Day of His Doom
Sheriff Samuel Caldwell Took the Condemned Man away
on the 9:30
New York Central Train Last Evening and the Destination
Was Reached at 2 O’clock This Morning.
Czolgosz was taken to Auburn on the
[?] o’clock train over the New York Central last night. Those who
gathered at the railway station to see the prisoner were disappointed.
In spite of the sheriff’s precautions, it became known that this
train was to be used.
A private day coach was sent down
to the New York Central tracks north of the Terrace station and
within 200 feet of the jail. Czolgosz, surrounded by fifteen deputy
sheriffs, was hustled across lots to the car. The curtains of the
car windows were drawn, the doors were guarded and the prisoner
was shackled to his seat and to one of the deputies, who sat beside
him. The car was attached to the regular 9:30 train.
Sheriff Caldwell was personally in
charge of the prisoner.
The train arrived at Auburn at 2:12
o’clock this morning, and the prisoner was conducted to the death
CZOLGOSZ SAYS HE IS SORRY.
Czolgosz talked freely while the
journey from Buffalo was being made. He said he wanted the public
to understand that he was sorry for his crime. He said he had been
excited by Anarchistic ideas. But there was no conspiracy to kill
“I had no personal grievance against
the President,” said the assassin. “My trial has been much fairer
than I expected.”
