Knows the Czolgosz Family


Milwaukee Man Talks of the Assassin’s Mother and Father.

     Edwin L. Bender of 141 Seventh street returned yesterday from Cleveland, O., where he has been living for some little time. Mr. Bender was acquainted with the Czolgosz family and when the news of the attempted assassination was received the attention of the people in Cleveland was turned for the time being upon the family of the murderer.
     “Both the father and mother of Czolgosz say that he should suffer the penalty for his crime, and they were as much shocked as anyone when they heard of it,” said Mr. Bender. “The father of the murderer is at present out of work and he fears that this episode will prevent him from obtaining it. The family is quite espectable [sic], though poor, and is well thought of. Leon, the son, formerly worked at a place called Newberg in a fence factory. Not much seems to be known about him there.”
