for some days. Numerous arrests |
have already been made, including
that of the assassin, a young man who
is believed to he a Finn named Leg- '
lo, and who is now in a hospital se- !
veroly and perhaps fatally injured by i
the expplosion of his own bomb. An ae- |
complice of l.eglo, also apparently a ,
Finn, but whose name is unknown, has
been arrested. Ho ha 1 in his posses- j
