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.
