Has Paid the Pennlty [sic]

     Czolgosz has paid the penalty of his crime. “He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.” Since Czolgosz was locked in his cell at Auburn scarcely a word about him has come back to the outside world, and what has come has been of a kind in no way tending to make cither [sic] a hero or a martyr of him. He has been treated like a common murderer. No maudlin sentiment has been wasted upon him, no interviews and statements have been permitted, and, all in all, the handling of Czolgosz has been terribly business-like. There has been absoluteiy [sic] nothing in what has happened since the trial to encourage even the most crack-brained crank to follow the murderer’s example. The dull silence of a cell, and the certainty of its end in death, has nothing inspiring in it.
