Was in Canton


Motorman Domer Sure He Saw Czolgosz.
Conversed with the Motorman—Sure the Man Was the One Who Shot the President.

     James Domer, the motorman on car 28, of the Mahoning line, is certain that Czolgosz, the assassin of the president, rode with him about three weeks ago. There was a man got on his car at Belden avenue and rode to the square with him who corresponds to exactly to Czolgosz. He is certain that he is not mistaken. When the man got on the car he came up to him and said: “I was just having some fun with that man on the corner. He has a scheme to flim the president out of some money, by means of a union seal which he has. He was going to forge an order for some money from the president. I pulled this from my pocket, showing a detective’s badge, and told him the best thing he could do was to get out of town, that I belonged to the secret service.”
     When they got to the square Domer said he asked him where the lake was and if there was a base ball game in town that day. Domer has not seen the fellow since, but as soon as he saw his picture he remembered him as the same man.
     “There was something about him and his actions,” said Domer, “that impressed me so that I would know him again among a hundred men. He finally took a lake car and that is the last I saw of him.”
