Parents Are Russian Poles

     Cleveland, O., Sept. 11.—According to the statement of the canvasser of the Cleveland Directory Company, the parents of Leon Czolgosz, the would-be assassin of President McKinley, are Russian Poles. The canvasser has covered the foreign settlement in Newburg for a number of years and he says he knows of what he speaks.
     “In 1896,” said the canvasser, “the Czolgosz family of to-day gave their names as Czolgowski.”
