Assassin’s Weapons in Museum


Czolgosz’s Revolver and Handkerchief Given to Historical Society.

     Buffalo, N. Y.—The revolver, cartridges and handkerchief which were used by Czolgosz in assassinating President McKinley, have been given to the Buffalo Historical Society.
     District Attorney Penney hesitated for some time as to whether it would not be better to send the important historical relics to Washington, but finally determined on Buffalo. In accepting the relics the Historical Society promised to guard them carefully.
