[untitled]

     Collier’s Weekly, in defending the New York Journal from the imputation of having incited Leon Czolgosz to murder President Mcinley, says: “Czolgosz was an Europena [sic] brand of hater, of the kind that neither Mr. Hearst nor any other prophet has ever yet succeeded in creating in this country. He was indoctrinated long before he landed in America.” But the difficulty with this statement is that it is entirely inaccurate. The truth is that Czolgosz was born in America and was never in any other country. The International Cyclopedia contains this short biography of him: “Czolgosz, Leon (1873-1901). A Polish-American anarchist, the assassin of William McKinley, twenty-fourth President of the United States. He was born at Detroit, Michigan.”
