Assassin Never Lived Here


Poles Deny That Czolgosz Made His Home in Wilmington.

     Several of the prominent Poles in this city deny the stories that were circulated yesterday to the effect that Czolgasz was ever employed in this city. In the first place the police of the other cities who have been investigating his record have accounted for his movements for the past ten years. According to the investigation made by them he could not have been in Wilmington six years ago as was stated by the afternoon papers.
     Theodore Sarcowski, the proprietor of the General Pulaski House on Front near Madison street [sic] who knows nearly every Polander in Wilmington said last evening that Czolgosz was never employed in this city. He said that the person who told the story yesterday got the assassin confused with another Pole who came to Wilmington six years ago from the West. His name was Karosinski. He was a Solialist [sic] but not an Anarchist.
