Justice Is Swift
Sympathizer of Czolgosz Is Landed in Albany Penitentiary.
Poughkeepsie, N. Y.,
Nov. 2.—Dominick Lozzi, an Italian shoemaker of this city, said
that Leon Czolgosz was a fine man and that he did good work when
he killed the president.
He was arrested yesterday morning
and tried on a charge of keeping a disorderly house and two charges
of assault. Recorder Morchauser found him guilty on every charge,
and in less than an hour after his arrest he was on his way to Albany
penitentiary to serve a year and a half inmpisonment [sic].
Lozzi had his housekeeper arrested
for intoxication and she lodged three counter-complaints against
him. The housekeeper read from a paper an account of the electrocution
of Czolgosz, and Lozzi said: “He was a good man and did a good job,
and if he was in Italy the laws would not hurt him, and we nihilists
would get him out of that chair.”
The trial of the three cases lasted
but ten minutes, after which the recorder said:
“I find you guilty of all three charges
and sentence you to the Albany penitentiary for six months on each
charge, or a year and a half in all, and I am sorry, very sorry,
that the law does not allow me to give you more.”
Lozzi was in prison for his dinner.
