PLOT LAID A
YEAR AGO.
..-V
Cleveland, O., Sept. 23.— Invea
ligations made to-day by Police
Detective Schmunk reveal the
startling possibility that a plot i*to
assassinate President McKjfjjjfiy
was laid a year or more ago,
he was elected (or his second teftn.
and that it may have been laid fin
the peaceful precincts of Orange
township, where the Czolgosz fam
ily lived. A remittance made to;the
assassin by his brother, Waldtck
Czolgosz, about a month ago, Ued
to the investigation that may'hive
an important bearing on the case.
From the first the Buffalo p|}icc
and Secret Service agents of*the
Federal Government have been
strong in their belief that there was
a plot, although the Clevelanc^.po
lice have been inclined to doubt
the theory. One of the strong ele
ments in the belief of the Buffalo
and Secret Service detectives hag
been the fact that the handkerchig
with which the assassin concealed
the hand in which he held ibis
weapon was a woman's handlaw
chiel. VVliat is more importanns
that the handkerchief was tied
about the hand in a way that he, no
matter lio.v skilful he might have
been with the other hand, or h(jw
much time he might have taken M
tie it.
The fact that Czolgosz had mon
ey impelled the detectives to try to
learn whence lie got it. To-day his
brother, Waldeck Czolgosz, con
fessed to having sent it to Leon
under the name of Frank Snyder,
at West Seneca, N. Y. In hi*
search for clues,
Schmunk learned from the neigh
boring farmers that the CzoIgS
boys, Leon and Waldeck, have
been readers ot Socialist papers for
several years. John D, Knox, an
aged farmer who lives in the vicin
ity of the former Czolgosz farm,
said to-day:— •>
"The two boys, the one that shot
the President, Waldeck, used to
come to my house and talk to me
about the Socialist papers. They
brought their papers to me and
tried to get me to read them. Once
when they were here during the
last Presidential campaign they;
got to talking about President
McKinley, and one of them said)
if lie is elected lie will be shot bed
lore he serves out ills term, ana
then went on and; I'd serve John^
Rockefeller the same way il I got a
chance." They talked violence all
the time, and I was glad when they^
went out of the neighborhood. -M
"Almost every night there wai,
a crou d of people *rom the city ail
their house. They used to coiriSj
over the farm from the electric road
so that we could not sec them ar
would have if they had come bw
the road. The back ol the farm ex-^
tends to the railroad, and the visj
itors used to go back and fortrf
that way instead of by way of tha
road Sometimes there would b<?
quite a crowd of them."
