Buffalo. Sept. 27 L.-on F.
Czolgosz, the assassin of Presi
dent McKinley, was yesterday
afternoon sent "ed tobe elec
trocuted m Auburn state prison
during the week beginning Oct.
58, 1901. Before sentence was
passed the assassin evinced a
desire to speak, but he could not
get his voice above a whisper
and his words were repeated to
the court by his counsel.
"There was no cne else but
me," the prisoner said in a whis
per. "No one else told me to do
it and no one paid me to do it.
1 was not told anything about
the crime and I never thought
anything about that until a
couple of days befoue I commit
ted the crime."
Czolgosz sat down. He was
quite calm, but it was evident
that his mind was flooded with
distress.' His cheeks were a
trifle palo and his outstretched
hand trembled: The guards put
ho handcuffs on his wrists. He
looked at one of the officers.
There was an expression of the
profoundest fear aud helpless
ness in h s eyes. He glanced
about at the people who crowded
the room in fforts to get a look
at him. The prisoner's eyelids
rose and fell tremulously and
then he fixed his gaze on the
floor in front of him.
At this point Judge Titus
came over to the prisoner aud
bade him good-by. Czolgosz re
plied very faintly, letting his
eye rest upon the man who had
been his counsel.
"Goqd-by," he said weakly.
Czolgosz was then hurried
downstairs and through the
'tunnel of sobs" to the jail,
where he remained until he was
taken to the train and started for
Auburn, the place of execution.

Boston, S,t. 2G Details of
the recent capture of Miss Stone,
the American missionary, and
one of her helpers by brigands
in Turkey are gien in a letter
just received here by the Ameri
can board -of commissioners for
foreign missions. The facts be
came known to one of the mis
sionaries of the board of Saniao
koo. European Turkey, with
whom members of the party
with whom Miss Stone and her
assistant, Mrs. Tsilka, were
traveling when the capture was
made, and who fled on being re
leased - by the outlaws. Tiu y
could give no information as to
where Miss Stone and her com
panion were taken, as the two
women disappeared iu the night
and the rest of the party were
detained under guard for a time.
Finally the robbers relieved
these captives of watches and
other valuables and departed.
The missionaries made their way
at once to Samaokoo.
According to the story told by
these victims the capture was
made at 3 o'clock in the after
noon of - Sept. 3, while Miss
Stone and Mrs. Tsilka, the wife
of an Albanian preacher, were
traveling with friends from Ban
sko to Djutnao. There were flf
een to eighteen in the party.
The bandits confronted them in
a narrow valley, surrounded
them and compelled them -to
wade a river and ascend wooded
mountain side for about an hour.
There appeared to be about forty
brigands dressed like Turks, but
speaking good Bulgarian.
At .length a stopping place
was reached. The next morn-
ing Miss btone ana Mrs.
Tsilka were missed, and it was
apparent that the main body of
the outlaws had departed, leav
ing only a guard. Later this
guard compelled the captives to
give up their watches, money
and jewelry, after which they
disappeared up the mountain,
leaving the missionaries free.
The authorities did not learn
of the capture until nearly tweni
ty-four hours after it had takei
place, and it is thought this gave
the brigands all the chance they
needed to reach a secure hiding
place. v It is thought that they
might have entered Bulgaria,
and the army has been given
special instructions to guard the
border closely and follow up any
trace of the marauders which
they may find.

Schley Court Adjourned to Attend Judge
Washington, Sept. 27 The
Schley court of inquiry. was in
session for onty an hour and
three-quarters yesterday, ad
journing at 12:45 in order to per
mit its members and others en
gaged there to attend the funeral
of Judge Wilson, late chief coun
sei for Admiral Schley. Capt.
Wie concluded his testimony.
Admiral Cotton made a brief
statement on recall and Lieut.
Spencer S. Wood, who commaud
ed the dispatch boat Du pout
during the Spanish war, began
his testimony. Machinist Gray,
who was in charge of the star
board engines on the day of the
bittle off Santiago, also testified
briefly. He said that on the day
ot the battle the starboard
engines were stopped and the
Capt. Wise -was questioned at
considerable length as to what
he had done before the arrival of
the flying squadron off Santiago
toward locating Cervera's fleet
in the harbor. He said that
while he had satisfied himself of
the presence of the Spanish
fleet, he had been content to
communicate his knowledge to
Admiral Schley through Capt.
Sigsbee, not considering it nec
essary to make direct communi
cation -with the commander-in
Lieutenant John Hood, who
commanded the dispatch-boat.
The Hawk during ihe Spanish
war, and Captain Bowman H.
McCalla, who was in command
of the Marblehead, were the
principal witnesses. Their test
imony dealt with the delivery of
dispatches from Sampson to
Schley, and both related conver
sations with Schily.
Captain McCalla expressed th
opinion that coaling was feasible
off Santiago at the time Schley
began his retrograde movement.
Captain Lemly said that lie
thought he would be able to end
the presentation of the govern
ment side of the case by the close
of next week. He said he would
