Salmagundi [excerpt]

     Judge Carroll Cook of San Francisco visited Czolgosz in his cell before his trial. He tells the Post that the assassin’s name should be pronounced as if it were spelled “Scholgosz.” You can take your choice in the published pronounciations [sic] of the assassin’s name and call it “Shawlgosch,” “Sloss,” “Scholgosz” or any old thing[.] “Scholgosz” seems to be a reasonable pronunciation of the name.
