full text
McKinley assassination (public response: criticism); lawlessness (mob rule); Leon Czolgosz (trial: personal response).
Named persons
Leon Czolgosz.



     The men who advocated lynch law in the case of Czolgosz should ponder well on the outcome of the assassinís trial. The assassin was given a fair trial, and the spectacle is one calculated to increase respect for law and order. A lynching would have been an incentive to anarchy.
