In China Death Would Be Czolgosz’s Fate

     SYRACUSE, Sept. 10.—Mr. Wu Ting Fang, the Chinese Minister who took part in the ceremonies of Diplomats’ Day at the State Fair here to-day, said of the attempted assassination of President McKinley: “It was horrible, horrible.”
     Speaking of the appropriate punishment for the perpetrators of such attempts, Mr. Wu said: “In my country that wretch Czolgosz would receive the extreme penalty,—death by slow torture.”
