Named persons
Leon Czolgosz.


     Czolgosz was put on trial and convicted in a few hours. May be [sic] a trial was not necessary at all since he openly confessed his guilt, but one wonders what sort of lawyers he had, that they against all traditions of their craft, lent themselves not to efforts against expediting their client to the scaffold. The court must have known its business when it appointed them to defend him. He can not be got out of the way any too soon for the good of the country.
