Hanged in Effigy

     MARINETTE, Wis., Sept. 19.—An effigy of Czolgosz was hung upon a lamp post here this morning with the placard, “Czolgosz, the assassin; let anarchists beware.”
     Union memorial service in Scott theater was attended by 5,000 people and overflowing. Catholic priests and Protestant ministers made addresses. All stores, factories and saloons are closed all day. An intense and solemn quietude pervades the city, which has never been equaled before. Business houses and residences are draped in mourning emblems.
