of London at noon today.
After firing the fatal shot the mur
/
derer dropped his revolver on the side
walk. The weapon was secured by the
officers and found to have been pur
chased In New York city.
The officers believe the assassin to
belong to a rival faction of the Arme
nian party which is charged with hav

The trouble between the two sections
of the Armenians was occasioned over
the collection of $20,000 in the United
States in 1902 for the relief of the
abused and murdered Armenian fam

Sagouini was charged by the assassin
with confiscating some of the funds
collected. v
Editor Young publisher of an Arme

alleged misappropriation. Immediately
afterwards an attempt was made upon
the life of Editor Young but he es
caped injury.
M. Nagurbek, an American leader in

cause he reiterated the charges re

turned from a trip to Nagurbek when
the attempt upon the life of Editor
Young was made.

faction charge the sultan campaign
managers with carrying *n a war of
extermination upon all Armenians now

from New York when the murder oc
curred. He was without doubt the
