In the penitentiary today, In the court
or special sessions, for publlshlm; In
his paper, the Krelhit, nn nlleRed se
ditious article on the day followlnt? the
shooting of the late President MoKln
ley. The article In ritiesllon was entitled,
".Murder Against Murder." In his de
fense, Most claimed that Hit paper eoli
talnlni the article was printed ami
ready for distribution before the presi
dent was shot. Also that It was a quo
tation from an article published tlfty
years and re-publlshett by him tlfteen
years ago. After Imposing the sen
tence, Justice Hinsdale read the opin
ion of the court, In which he said:
"ft Is no answer to the evil nnd
criminal nature of this artk'le to claim
that It was written for the purpose of
destroying crowned heads. it Incul
cates and enforces the Idea that mur
der is the proper remedy to be applied
against rulers. The fact that II was
published fifty years ago and again re
published ahout llfteeu years ago only
emphasizes and gives addeil point to
tins criminality of re-publishing It tit
any time. It shows a deliberate intent
to Inculcate and promulgate the doc
trines of the article. This we hold to
be a criminal act. it is not necessary
to trace any connection In this article
with the assassination of the late
president. Tito offence here in the eyes
of the law is precisely the same as It
the sorrowful event had never occurred.
Tlie murder of the president only
serves to illustrate and Illuminate the
enormity of the crime of the defendant
in teaching his diabolical doctrine."

murderer of President Me.Klnley. Only
twenty-six witnesses will be present
in the chamber of death when tlio sen
tence Is executed. Warden Mead of

dent Collins the requests' he has re
ceived for permission to attend tlie
electrocution, over 1,00 in all. The
law will limit the number of witnesses
and the superintendent will decide
who the witnesses will be. It was stat
ed tit the stale deiiarlment of prisons
today that Czolgosv: has expressed no
ft'.ir as to the electrocution, but he has
said that he would not care to go out

the people would kill him.
Since his confinement in Auburn
prison several thousand letters have
been received for him at the prison as
well as a large number of express
packages containing Mowers anil fruit.
The letters (lowers or fruit have never
reached the condemned man. The
Mowers and fruit, It Is learned have
been sent by Christian societies as

in his last moments. Other letters
have come front cranks who have writ
