Relatives of Leon Czolgosz Appear to Be Unconcerned.
MEMBERS RETIRED EARLY
Father Relinquished Claim upon the Body without Emotion.
THEIR INDIFFERENCE REMARKABLE.
Family Will Arise Early to Hear News of the Execution.
[?]OTHER TO RETURN HOME IN DAY OR SO
[?]sage Family Received from [?] Was One Asking for a [?] Sum of
Cleveland, [?].—The members of the
family of [?] Czolgosz, who are in this city show [?] [?]ittle concern
over the fate of their son and brother as if he bore no relation
whatever to them. The seeming indifference is remarkable. The father
of the assassin was down town tonight in conference with Chief of
Police Conner and later it was learned that he had relinquished
all claims to the body of his son. That the elder Czolgosz has become
entirely indifferent as to the fate of his son or else does not
realize the terrible penalty that he must undergo, is very evident.
An incident that happened while on his way to his home in the Polish
district this evening is of interest.
A little newsboy hopped onto the car
and cried out the evening paper’s featuring [sic], as an
incident to buy, the electrocuting of Leon F. Czolgosz in Auburn
prison tomorrow. He spoke directly to the old man, but if he understood
he showed not the least consciousness that the matter in any way
concerned him. He simply stared into space and it is only fair to
asume [sic] that the words of the newsboy were not understood,
Czolgosz not being very familiar with the English language, grasping
the most ordinary words only after much difficulty.
When he arrived at his home the family
had gone to bed and had to be aroused that the father might be admitted.
No word other than a telegram asking
for $35 was received by the family today from the brother, Waldeck,
and his brother-in-law, Bandowski, who are in Auburn and the statement
was made that these two men would probably leave Auburn for Cleveland
Wednesday or Thursday.
The assassin’s father, a younger brother
and perhaps two of his isters [sic] will be in the Cleveland
office of the Associated Press tomorrow morning and will there lear[n]
of the carrying out of the law.
