Priest Enjoined by Bishop
Excommunicated, He Goes on with His Work — Praised Czolgosz’s Act.
Ardan is middle aged and the fact that he had such radical opinions was not known outside of the church and the Polish colony. His church is at Olyphant, this county, and is of the Greek Catholic denomination. The offending article was printed in a Polish paper at Olyphant called the Swoba. After asserting that Czolgosz did right in killing the President, the article goes on to say that there should be an equal division of the wealth of the world and that the only way to bring this about is to kill off the rulers.
