Leon Czolgosz (execution: personal response); Leon Czolgosz (execution).
Named persons
Leon Czolgosz.



     CZOLGOSZ has paid the penalty of his horrible crime. A bolt of electricity blotted out his worthless life and, according to the rules of orthodoxy, his soul is now in everlasting torment, for he refused the good offices of the priest and died as he had lived. His body was destroyed by acids immediately after the execution. The execution was devoid of sensationalism and the name of the assassin should be dropped from public print or discussion so that he will be as nearly forgotten as possible.
