Jury Finds Him Guilty of First
WILL BE SENTENCED THURSDAY.
Wheels of Justice Move Swiftly for
the Assassin of William McKinley ,
Trial Covers a Period of Only Two
Days Prisoner Not Affected.
Buffalo , Sept. 25. Leon Czolgosz
ivns touml guilty of murder in the first
degree by a Jury In part III of the supreme
premo court , In having on the sixth
day of September shot President Will-
lam McKinley , the wounds Inflicted
afterwards resulting In the death oJ
the president. The wheels of justice
moved swiftly. The trial of the as-
eassin consumed eight hours and
twenty-six minutes , and covered a no-
rlod of only two days. Practically all
bf this time was occupied by the pros-
ecutlon In presenting n case so clear ,
BO conclusive , that even had the prlS'
oner entered the plea of Insanity it is
doubtful If the Jury would have re
turned a verdict different from the
one rendered. The announcement
made by the attorneys for Czolgosz
that the eminent alienists summoned
by the Erie County Bar association
and by the district attorney to exanv
inc Czolgosz and to determine Ms
exact mental condition had declared
him to bo perfectly sane destroyed the
only stage of a defense that Judges
Lewis and Titus could have put to
The crowd gathered at City hall
yesterday was the largest that has
been him since his arraignment. Pee
pie were lined up on both sides of the
big rotunda on the second floor when
court convened and fringed the stalre
leading from the floor above. There
was no demonstration , except that ol
curiosity. A large number of women
witnessed the proceedings. At 2:4- !
p. in. District Attorney Penney an
nounced that the case of the prosecu
tlon was ended. Judge Lewis arose
slowly and addreslng the court , said
that the sudden close of the case
ngalnst Czolgosz was a surprise tc
him and his colleague. They had nc
witness to call for the defense. He
asked the court that he be allowed tc
address the jury at once. The court
assented and the venerable jurist be
gan an address that will long bo re
membered by those who heard it.
District Attorney Penney requested
the judge to charge the jury that tlu
law presumes every individual sane
unless proven otherwise and the courl
said to them : "Tho law presumes the
defendant In this case sane. "
Lawyer Titus also asked the courl
to charge the Jury "that if they wen
satisfied from the evidence that al
the time of the committal of the as
eault the defendant was laboring un
der such a defect of reason as not tc
know the quality of the act or that ll
was wrong , he was not responsible
nnd the Jury must acquit. "
"I so charge , " said the judge.
Case Given to the Jury.
The case was given to the jury al
3:51. : After the jury had retired tc
consider the evidence the scene ir
the court room became dramatic Ir
the extreme. Decorum was somevvhal
forgotten and the spectators stood ut
and many walked about the room and
engaged In conversation. The guards
about the assassin , who still sat Ir
his seat before the bench , were
doubled , and many plain clothes men
were seen mingling among the crowd
surging about the room , closelj
watching every one whose face was
not a familiar one to them. There was
no disposition to crowd about the pris
oner , although the object of every one
seemed to bo to get into a position
to get a full view of his face. Czol
gosz had been seated in his chair all
afternoon , his hands clasped on the
arms of the chair , his head bent for
ward and to the left. The room was
not warm , but he frequently took his
handkerchief from his pocket and
mopped the perspiration from his fore
head and cheeks. At no time during
the absence of the jury did ho raise
his eyes or lift his head or seem tc
know that ho was the object of inter
est of several hundred men nnd worn'
en. Every time the door was opened
all eyes were turned in that direc
tion , the evident thought in every
mind being that the jury would only
take a few minutes to agree on a ver
dict. It was 4:35 : when the crier
rapped for order , and the Jury filed
Into the court room.
The clerk read their names , each
Juror responding "present" as his
name was called.
Addressing them , Justice White
eaid : "Gentlemen , have you agreed
upon a verdict ? "
"Wo have , " responded Foreman
"What Is your verdict ? "
"That the defendant is guilty ol
murder in the first degree. "
There was a moment of silence and
then n murmur arose from the crowd ,
It ended there. There was no hand
clapping , no cheering.
Before adjournment Justice White
announced that ho world pronounce
eentonce. on the defendant Thursday
afternoon at 2 o'clock. The prisoner
was taken at once through the tunnel
under Delaware avenue back to the
jail. To all appearances he was in
no way affected by the result of the

but there was no demonstration.

John W. Gates Has New Rail
FOUH BANKRUPT ROADS IN DEAL.
Omaha and St. Louis and Kansas City
nnd Northern Connectlntj Line Fig
ure In His Plans for a New Syotem
Through Council Bluffs.
Chicago. Sept. 25. The Chronicle
says John W. Gates has signalized
his ri'tutn from Euiopu by launching
a new railroad s.vstem. Us announce
ment brought surprise nnd consterna
tion to the big trunk lines that tun
from Chicago to Kansas City.
Gales and his nbsoclntes have been
quietly corralling the socuritlos of
four bankrupt roads , each Independent
but so situated as to make a contlnu
ous line from West Qttlncy , on the
Mississippi , to Kansas City , on the
Missouri , nnd to Council Bluffs. The
consummation of the now system 1ms
boon effected In Ihe acceptance of the
scheme by an overwhelming major
ity of the bondholder of the Kansas
City and Northern Connecting line.
The four roads that enter Into Ihe now
Gates project are the Qulncy-Kansas
City railroad , from West Qulncy to
Trenton , Mo. , 30 miles long , from
Trenton to Patlonsburg ; Iho Kansas
City and Northern Connecllng rail
road. 81 miles , from Pattonsbitrg to
Kansas City , nnd the Omaha and St.
Louis railroad , from Pattonsburg to
Council Bluffs. All four roads are In
the hands of receivers.
The four roads comprise a connect
ing and continuous system of 300 miles
nnd traverse the territory of the Bur
lington , Alton and Atchlson railroads.
Strategically , they are ns well located
In the middle western section ns the
Chicago Great Western In the north
ern territory , and are capable of as
much rate disturbance ns the Stick
ney property. Under the direction of
Colonel Gates the new system Is apt
to remain In a quiescent condition nnd
when the ban Is perfected the big sys
terns will bo compelled lo buy peace
and profit at the teitns offered by
Gates and his men.

Kruger Not to Send Special Mission.
The Hague , Sept. 25. The Assoclat
ed Press representative hero learns
that the announcement made In the
Solr of Brussels that Mr. Krugdi 1mb
decided to send a special mission to
President Roosevelt is not correct. It
appears that such a project had been
In contemplation , but the Idea is not
likely to be carried out , owing to the
great expense incidental to it and to
the difficulty of securing a suitable
representative. The expenses In
curred since Mr. Kruger came to
Europe have reduced the Transvaal
funds to a small sum. The course
probably to bo adopted will bo that
Montagu While will be Instructed to
approach the United States govern
ment and Mr. Krirger and others will
take no action pending the result of
Mr. White's endeavor.

Meeting of Cabinet.
Washington. Sept. 2 , ' ) . Secretaries
Sago and Wilson , Attorney General
Ivnox and Postmaster General Smith
were the only members of the cabinet
present at yesterday's cabinet meetIng -
Ing Like the first meeting last Frlda >
the time was largely devoted to the
explanation of the scope and clmractoi
of the work of the various dopart/
'Iliry Anth > Pl.M-l.-Mt of All Pour
Comparatively few people reall/o of
\\lint lemni liable speed dogs are capa
ble. Some lomnrkablc statistics In le-
gnrd to this have been gathered by M.
iJiiholler. a Trench scientist.
After pointing out the marvelous on-
ilm nni e shown by little IOK terrier
who follow llielr masters patiently for
hours while the latter are tiding on bi
cycles or In carriages , he sr.js that even
greater endurance Is shown by certain
wild animals that are akin to dogs.
Thus the wolf can run between 50
and 00 miles In one night , and an arctic
fox can do quite as well , if not better.
Nansen met one of these foxes on the
ice at a point more than 70 miles north
west of the Snnnlkovv territory , which
Is ISO miles from the Asiatic const. Es-
klmo and Siberian dogs can travel 43
miles on the Ice In five hours , and theie
Is one case on record In which a team
of Eskimo dogs traveled C'/j ' miles In
2S minutes ,
According to M. Dusoller , the speed
of the shepherd < log nnd those used In
hunting ranges from 10 to 13 yards a
fret-olid. English setters and pointers
hunt at the rate of 18 to 10 miles an
hour , and they can maintain this speed
for at least two hours.
Fuvhoundb are extraordlnailly swift ,
as lb pioved by the fact that a dog of
this bleed once beat a thoroughbred
horse , covering four tulles In GV min
utes , which was at the rate of nearly
IS j ards a second.
Grej hounds are the swiftest of nil
four footed creatures , nnd their Fjteed
may bo regarded ns equal to that of
carrier pigeons. English greyhounds ,
vv hlch are carefully st'lt-eled nnd which
are used for coursing , are able to cov
er at full gallop a space between 18
nnd 23 yards every eecond.
How great an achievement this is
may be Judged from the fact that a
thoroughbred horse rarely if ever ex
ceeds 10 yards. Moreover , It is said
that a hare at its greatest speed never
goes fabler than nt the rate of 18 yards.
These Intl-restlug statistics nro ex
citing mu'li comment among sports
men nnd other lovers of dogs , nnd the
opinion Is unanimous that M. Dusoller
has fully proved the right of the grey
hound to rank ns the bvvlftcst of the
quiulrupedb. Express engines only sur
pass them. London Mall.
