Leon Czolgosz (trial: personal response).
Named persons
Leon Czolgosz.



     The trial of the assassin, Czolgosz, which closed yesterday with a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree was a disappointment to the extent that nothing was brought out in the evidence or any of the proceedings that in any way showed the existence of a conspiracy among the anarchists to bring about the death of the president. It was in the hope that some evidence of this conspiracy, which no doubt exists, would be brought out that the plea of guilty which the assassin entered was not accepted by the court. It was also to prevent the assassin from being allowed to pose as a martyr, but compel him to meet his death as a convicted assassin, convicted by the laws which he outraged[.] That his trial failed to give any clue to the identity of those who were connected with him in the conspiracy and who urged him on to the crime. [sic] is to be regretted, and perhaps with his death will be lost the last chance to discover his accomplices.
