Edmund Wolczyski Gives Himself Up


Surrenders to the Police, But They Find No Cause to Connect Him with Crime.

     CHICAGO, Sept. 11.—Edmund Wolczyski, frightened at a newspaper story which connected his name with that of Leon Czolgosz, to-day gave himself up to the local authorities. He said he had known Czolgosz in Cleveland; that he knew members of the latter’s family. He was recently in Buffalo, but left there for Chicago before the attack on the President was made.
     Chief O’Neill had an hour’s interview with him this afternoon and at its conclusion announced that there seemed to be no reason for holding the voluntary prisoner.
