Leon Czolgosz; Loran L. Lewis.


     In making his defense of Czolgosz, Judge Lewis took occasion to come all the way to the South for a lynching case and to make a comparison between the North and the South, disparaging to the latter. To say the very least of it, Judge Lewis displayed poor taste in dragging sectionalism into a case where there was no question of sections involved. He could have found cases of mob-murder without going very far afield from Buffalo.
