Elder Wiles and Czolgosz


Preacher Sorry the Assassin Was Not Killed.

     Chesterfield, Ind., Sept. 13.—“It was a pity the police did not surround Czolgosz and permit the colored man to finish him,” remarked Elder T. M. Wiles, the Christian minister of Anderson, during a funeral discourse preached in the Christian church here. The elder declared that it was for no sins of his own that the President suffered but of anarchism and of the wretch who shot him.
