Consul for Greece, whose headquarters
are at San Francisco. He, in company
will, other prominent Greeks, called
uon the Plaindealer and conversed
very freely regarding the trouble. He
speaks English quite fluently aud is an
intelligent, well educated gentleman.
He deplored th trouble, but could not
help asking that judgment be not passed
upon his people until they had been
given a chance to clear themselves.
"You see," said he in a very earnett
tone of voice, "these men have had this
same trouble before. 1 mean in regard
to the trains bumping into their sleep
ing cars with such force as to often hurt
and even cripple some of our people.
At one time so many of them were
injured that the railroad people, in
order to avoid damage suits, came and
gave the men thus hurt, considerable
money for the damages committed. 1
do not mean to say who tired the shot
which kihed Mrs. Petersein, bir," heie
he shrugged his shoulders, "we are not
sure that it was not fired by one of the
train crew, themselves, for not e of our
men had tire arms which would carry a
bullet to correspond with that which
the autopsy found was the cause of Mrs.
Peterseiu'e death. But, all we want is
a fair trial."
