Tragedy Occurs in Athens—Victim's Measures, to Stop Gambling the Cause—His Slayer, a Gambler, Is Placed Under Arrest. Athens, June 14.—Theodore P. Dely annis. the popular premier of Greece, was stabbed and mortally wounded by a professional gambler named Ghera karis at the main entrance of the chamber of deputies at five p. m. Tues day. The premier died within three hours. The assassin, who was immedi ately arrested, said he committed the deed in revenge for the stringent meas ures taken by Premier Delyannis against the gambling houses, all of which re cently were closed. The premier arrived at the entrance of the chamber in a car riage. Gherakaris approached, saluted the premierand opened thecarriage door. The premier was in the act of thanking Gherakaris for his courtesy when the gambler plunged a long dagger into M. Delyannis' abdomen, inflicting a fright ful wound. The murderer was immedi ately overpowered by the attendants. Medical assistance was quickly secured and the wounded statesman was taken to a Red Cross station, where an opera tion was performed in an effort to Stop the internal hemorrhage. This was un successful and Premier Delyannis died at 7:30 o'clock. Popular ?rief Intense. The news spread quickly and it would be impossible to describe the popular evidences of sorrow or the anger of the crowd, who attempted to lynch the as sassin. Lynching was prevented by the gendarmes who rushed their prison er from the building to prison. It is es timated that 20.000 persons witnessed the removal of the body of the premier from the Red Cross station to his late residence. Members of the cabinet and of the chamber of deputies were among the crowd, many of them weeping. A RECORD-BREAKING RUN. Pennsylvania Flyer Makes Trip Be tween New York and Chicago in 17 Hours, 57 Minutes. •Chicago, June 13.—On its initial run from New York, the Pennsylvania railroad's 18-hour "Flyer," the fastest long-distance train in the world, ar rived in this city at 8:52 o'clock Mon day mornjng, three minutes ahead of schedule time. In order to accomplish this feat, extraordinary achievements in the way of fast running were neces sary. After leaving Pittsburg the tender of the big Atlantic type engine, which had been attached at that city for the run to Crestline, 0., developed a hot box about 20 miles east of Mans field, O. The engineer stopped his train and 15 minutes were lost in futile efforts to cool the troublesome axle. Finally a freight engine was attached and the train limped into Crestline. Here the regular engine was in wait ing and when the "Flyer" left the lat ter place it was 26 minutes late. The run to Fort Wayne. 131 miles away, was made in 1141.4 minutes, an aver age of Gfi G-10 miles an hour. When the train pulled out of Fort Wayne for the last lap of the long journey, it was only nine and one-half minutes late, lGVa minutes of the lost time hav ing been made up. Miles were fre quently reeled off in from 44 to 50 sec onds, and an average speed of a mile a minute was easily maintained over long stretches of track. CREASON MOT GUILTY. Colored Man Acquitted of Charge of Murder, in Connection with Fa mous Edwards Case. Reading, Pa., June 17.—Samuel Grea son (colored) was Friday acquitted of the murder of John Edwards. Mrs. Kate Edwards, wife of the murdered man. whose testimony convicted Grea son over three years ago, Friday com pletely exonerated him. Edwards was murdered nearly four years ago. and Greason was arrested several months later. His death warrant was issued ten times, and his case has developed into one of the most remarkable murder trials in this state. Mrs. Edwards, the mother of Greason's child, is under sen tence of death, and it is expected that the governor will fix the date for her ex ecution within a short time. It was post poned several months ago so that she could be used as a witness at Greason's trial. Defective Shell Explodes. Gibraltar, June 16.—An explosion of a six-inch shell occurred on board the British battleship Magnificent Wednes day during gun practice off Tetuan.

WEAVER SEES CLEVER TRICK LETTER TO SHERIFE IS CAUSE FOR STATEMENT. Philadelphia Mayor Warns Public Against Ruse—Crusade to Be Pushed. Philadelphia, June 19.—Mayor Weav er Saturday issued a statement bear ing upon the letter signed by 21 busi ness men and addressed to Sheriff Miles, chairman of the republican city committee, urging the committee to reform the republican party. The let ter suggested that new nominations be made for the fall election. The mayor's statement is as follows: "I know nothing about this move ment, neither as to its origin nor its purpose. It is a trivial interposition at this time. Some of the gentlemen whose names appear on the address I am sure cannot have understood the true significance and the possible ef fect of their action. "This injection of paltry politics at this time is unfortunate. Treating with the present republican organization over the question of its ticket for sher iff and coroner is a futile and mis leading diversion. It makes no dif ference who that organization puts on its ticket at this time. This is not a contest over a sheriff and coroner, and I shall not permit it to be reduced to such a lame and impotent conclusion if I can help it. Therefore, 1 speak now and thus strongly in order that the true friends of municipal regeneration and honest government may be on their guard against either subtle or misleading efforts as would divert the issue, betray the cause, and possibly save for further evil the parent source of 'All our woes.' The only development of importance Saturday was the dismissal or 30 em ployes in the bureau of health. George W. Sunderland, assistant director of the department of public health and charities., states that the majority of the men removed are valuable to the service. It iu generally believed that Mayor Weaver has decided that every man who has had any part in the frauds believed to have been perpetrated upon the city in connection with the con struction of the nitration system, as well as in other contract work, shall be arrested and prosecuted. The mayor's advisers are urging upon him the most drastic action against men high in the republican organization, and prepara tions for the arrest of these men are said to be well under way. Later Saturday Mayor Weaver re scinded the order dismissing the health bureau employes. The mayor will make an investigation of the bu reau before putting his o/der into ef fect.

There are several, myste rious features in the case. ifs ^^t^iipy '£*??p,*?? \r£s I WS OF MINNESOTA. Col. Colvill Dies. Col. William Colvill of Red Wing, a veteran of the Civil war, and a man whose proud record as a soldier has made him honored throughout Northwest, died suddenly at Soldiers' home of heart failure. the tbe the CoL Colvill was conspicuous in preliminary arrangements for the re union of the old First Minnesota, which took place the 13th, and as his was one of the brightest names in that noble band, he was being extend ed every courtesy by his old compan ions in arms. With a number of them, Col. Colvili spent the evening talking over tbe pre parations for the reunion, particularly the removal of the flags from the old capitol to the new, which made an elaborate feature of the Firsts' re union. He retired at 10 o'clock, apparently in the best of health. Early next morning he was found dead in his bed. Col. Colvill was 75 years old, and had been in first rate health. His death cast a gloom over the festivities in connection with the reunion, as Col. Colvill has always been a moving spirit on such occasions. He was alone in the world, so far as family ties are concerned, and only his old friends, who are numbered by the thousand throughout Minnesota, will mourn his loss. State Pair.
