Arrested Before


Implicated in a Plot to Dynamite a Priest’s House.

     New York, Sept. 16.—Leon Czolgosz was arrested six years ago at Durica [sic], Pa., charged with an attempt to blow up the house of a Polish Catholic priest, according to a special from Scranton, Pa., to the World.
     Many sticks of dynamite, with caps and wires, were found in his trunk. The same special says:
     “When the news of President McKinley’s death was reported the anarchists held a big jollification meeting.”
