Says He Is Czolgosz’s Cousin

 

BROOKLYN BRAWLER CLAIMS RELATIONSHIP WITH
THE ASSASSIN, AND ADMITS BEING AN ANARCHIST.

     Tramo Rafferlo, who declares that he is a cousin of Leon Czolgosz, was arraigned in the Grant-st. court, Brooklyn, yesterday as the result of a general fight at the home of a friend on Sunday night. He was charged with cutting two men and beating a woman at No. 667 Washington-ave., Brooklyn. Rafferlo, who has been in America only six months, cannot speak English.
     The court interpreter told the magistrate that the Italian declared himself to be a cousin of the would-be assassin of President McKinley and admitted being an anarchist. He was sent to jail in default of $2,000 bail.
