Leon Czolgosz (disposal of remains); anarchism (dealing with).
Named persons
Leon Czolgosz.



     The proposal to refuse burial to Czolgosz is simply an attempted revival of the bad old system of driving stakes through suicides. It would be far more practical and Yankee-like—if madiæval [sic] practices are to be introduced at all—to try the effect of, say thumb screws on the living Anarchist to make him disclose his accomplices, rather than wreak a childish vengeance on the dead.
