As Others See Us: Comments of the Press Concerning the Recent
Editorial Convention

     On [sic] of the most interesting features of the meeting was a talk by Attorney P. E. C. Lally, a prominent lawyer of the Hawkeye state. Mr. Lally was in Buffalo at the time President McKinley was shot. He therefore was in a position to feel the impressions and feel the surging pulse of the people on this regretable [sic] occasion. Through the friendship of prominent men in Buffalo, Mr. Lally was privileged to to [sic] enter the courts prison, whose association with the murderer will mark them in the hereafter. Standing before Czolgosz the Iowa attorney was dumbfounded to see one of the handsomest men of blond type he had ever witnessed. The man’s brow was as perfect as a Grecian god, his hair was light and his facial expression lit by his great blue eyes as handsome and as clear as an Irish lassie’s orbs. The contour of the face was almost perfect and in the eyes or expression there was not one thing to suggest the coarse, the low, the treacherous incentive that prompted the anarchist to kill the beloved McKinley. The same characteristics that impressed Mr. Lally, likewise left their impress on the other attorneys present. They could not conceive why such a man, evidently as sane as they should do such a deed. In spite of reports, Mr. Lally says Czolgosz has never peeped as to the circumstances of the shooting. Despite French torture and sweating he has remained with the secrets of his mind locked within.
     Despite the three weeks growth of beard on his face the man presents an attractive appearance and his face is as innocent appearing as a babe just awakened from a peaceful slumber.
