Czolgosz Indicted

     On Monday the case of Leon F. Czolgosz was presented to the Grand Jury and at 4.40 in the afternoon, just 6 hours and 25 minutes after the presentation of the evidence began, the jury reported to Judge K. Emery in the County Court an indictment charging him with murder in the first degree. He was immediately arraigned before Judge Emery, who assigned as his attorney Hon. Loren Lewis and Hon. Robert C. Titus, both former justices of the Supreme Court. The prisoner refused to answer any questions put to him by the court, and also refuses to talk with his lawyers. It is said that this accords exactly with the course urged in anarchist literature in such cases and supports the theory that Czolgosz is a thoroughly drilled anarchist and the agent of a dastardly plot. It is the reverse of what might be expected from an insane man. It betrays a self-command that would be impossible for one not in full possession of his faculties.
