GUILTY OF MANY CRIMES
Notorious Macedonian Brigand Probably Fatally Shot
Salonika, Aug. 31. - Sandansky, the Macedonian brigand who held Miss Ella Stone for a ransom of $700,000 in 1903, was shot while walking in the street. He was attacked by two members of a rival fraction once led by the notorious Sarafoff. He was shot in the chest and is not expected to recover.
Sandansky is reputed to have committed more than 300 murders with his own hand. Thousands, it is said, have been murdered by his orders.
