That Anarchist Plot

 

A Slim Story Told to Support the Exploded Theory of the Police.

     Cleveland, Ohio, September 23.—Chief of Police Corner to-day gave Waldeck Czolgocz, a brother of the assassin of President McKinley, a thorough examination. Under the chief’s questioning much was learned that may be of value in the development of the supposed Anarchist plot that resulted in the assassination.
     Waldeck Czolgocz stuck to the statement that he made yesterday, to the effect that he had not seen his brother since he went away from the farm before the middle of July, although this is contradicted by the statement of a neighboring farmer, John D. Knox, that he saw the assassin on the road near the farm not more than five weeks ago.
     Waldeck stated to the police that he was going to Buffalo to-morrow to see his brother.
