Assassin Never Lived Here


Poles Deny That Czolgosz Made His Home in Wilmington.

     Several of the prominent Poles in thi[s] city de[n]y the stories that were circulat[e]d yest[e]rday to the effect that Czolga[s]z was ever employed in this city. In the first place the police of the o[t]her cit[ie]s who have be[e]n investigating his record hav[e] acco[u]nt[e]d for his movements for th[e] pa[s]t t[e]n years. According to the inv[e]stiga[t]ion mad[e] by them he could not have b[ee]n in Wilmington six years ago as was [s]tated by the a[f]ternoon papers.
     Theo[d]o[re] Sarcowski, the propri[e]tor of the G[e]n[e]ral Pula[s]ki House on Front near Madison street [sic] who knows nearly every Poland[e]r in Wilmington said last [e]v[e]ning that Czolgosz wa[s] n[e]ver employ[e]d in this city. He said that the person who [t]old th[e] story yesterd[a]y got the [assass]in confused with another P[o]l[e] who [c]am[e] to Wil[m]ington six years ago from th[e] West. Hi[s] n[a]me was Karo[s]inski. H[e] was a Solialist [sic] but not an Anar[c]hi[s]t.
