Jury at Buffalo CotvVict Him
of Murder in Firt
Leon F. Czolgosz, tho anarchist as
sassin of President MeKlnley, Tues
day was found guilty of murder in
tho first degree after ono of tho most
rapid yet dignified trials in tho hiatory
of Jurisprudence. Desplto tho eminonco
of tho prisoner's counsel it wns appar
ent Tuesday when tho alienists decided
that Czolgosz was sano that no de
fense wns posslblo, and consequently
that any delay In tho trial would bo
vain. In n period of eight hours nnd
twenty-six minutes tho assassin of
President MeKlnley had been found
guilty and Judgo Truman C. Whlto
had announced that ho would pass Ben
tenco on Thursduy aftornoon. Itemark
ablo as tho trial had been throughout
for its dignity equally with Its ab
sence of delay, not tho least engrossing
feature of tho day was tho address to
tho jury mado by Loron L. Lewis,
counsol for tho prisoner. Tho venor
ablo Jurist explained the necessity of
a defense for tho prisoner even though
his guilt could scarco bo questioned,
nnd mado his address tno occasion for
a criticism of lynch law, which, in all
probability, will go down in the an
nals of history as tho most masterly
vindication of the Jury system nnd con
demnation of mob violence ever ut
tered. Prisoner Knows Chicago Anarchists.
Superintendent of Police Dull wns
"Were you present at headquarters
when tho prisoner was brought thero
on tho night of tho murder?"
"Were any threats mado against

"Ho said ho know Presldont MeKln

President MeKlnley When ho fired. Tho
reason ho gavo was that ho believed
that ho was doing his duty. Ho said
that on tho day President MeKlnley
apoko at tho oxposltlon grounds, tho
day previous to tho assassination, ho
stood near tho stand on tho esplanade.
No favorable opportunity presented It
self. "Ho followed tho president to Niag

in progress, and whon ho reached the
presldont fired the fatal shots. Czol

alono had worked out so that thero
would bo no slip In his arrangements.
I nsked him why ho killed the presi
dent, and ho replied that ho did so be
causo It wns his duty."
"Did ho say ho was nn anarchist?"
"Did ho say any moro on tho sub
ject?" nsktd tho district attorney.
"Yes. Ho said that ho had mado n
study of tho beliefs of anarchists and
ho was n firm believer in their prin
ciples. Tho prisoner also stated that
ho had received much Information on
the subject in tho city of Clovelnnd,
Ho said that ho know a man in Chi

was tho narao of tho organ mentioned
by tho prisoner."

"Did ho over say anything about his

At tho conclusion of Superintendent
Bull's testimony, District Attornoy
Penny announced that tho caso for tho

Lewis Olves Vp Defense,
Then Mr. Lewis arose slowly nnd,
addressing tho court, .said:
"Wo aro embarrassod by tho sudden
closing of the caso of the prosecution,
Wo had not expected thorn to close bo
abruptly. Wo have no witnesses to call
for tho defense, but 1 ask tho court
that my colleague nnd mysolf bo al

Permission was granted by tho court
and Judge Titus began his address nt
"Gentlemen of tho Jury," ho began,
"a calamity has fallen upon this na
tion through tho act of this man, but
tho question Is whethor his act was
tho act of an lnsnno man. If an In

finished and the eyes' of many of those

Judge Titus then arose and said that
