Well Supplied with Money and Anarchical Literature.

     FT. WAYNE, Ind., September 25.—The police have discovered that Leon Czolgosz spent a week in this city in the early part of June, at the time when his f[a]mily seem to have lost sight of him. He made his headquarters in Samuel Errington’s barber shop, in South Calhoun street [sic]. He seemed to have pl[e]nty of money, a[n]d spen[t] his time explaining anarchical doctrines whenever he could find any one [sic] willing to listen. He was well supplied with anarchical literature, which he distributed. While here he went under th[e] name of Louis Neimann.
