Judge Titus


Will Not Defend Czolgosz Unless Ordered by Court.

     Milwaukee, Sept. 17.—Judge Titus, of Buffalo, whose appointment as counsel for Czolgosz was announced at Buffalo yesterday, is in this city attending a Masonic convention. When seen regarding his appointment he could hardly believe the report was true, saying he knew nothing of his appointment, having left Buffalo on Sunday. In an interview he said:
     “This is the very first intimation that I have had that my name had even been considered in that unpleasant connection and I have no idea that the report is correct.
     “I left Buffalo Sunday and the subject had not been broached to me directly or indirectly up to that time, and I know of no possible reason why such a task should be imposed upon me.”
     In answer to a question as to whether he would under any circumstances consent to defend the assassin, Judge Titus replied: “Not unless ordered to do so by the court.”
