Find No Plot in Cleveland
Police Convinced That Conspiracy Did Not Exist among Czolgosz’s Immediate Friends.
Cleveland, O., Sept. 10.—Public opinion in this
city is divided on the question as to whether Cleveland “reds” were concerned
in the attempted assassination of the President. The police have failed in their
search for evidence of a plot, and are convinced that none existed, at least
in the immediate circle of Leon Czolgosz’s friends and relatives.
Director of Public Works Charles P. Salen takes exception to the statement that Anarchists are being employed by the city government. Mr. Salen said tonight that after the recent flood many laborers were employed, among them Czolgosz’s father, who, however, did not come to work.
He says the acquaintances of Harry Kline, an employé of the City Engineering department, charged with being an Anarchist, state positively that he has no anarchistic tendencies.
