Prince Nicholas of Greece and the Greek Administrator of Salonika have sent telegrams confirming the news of the tragic death of King George  of the Hellenes, reports the New York Times.

The alleged assassin, Alex Schinas was arrested for the death of King George.  He claimed he killed the king because he "had refused to give him money which he asked for."

Schinas is said to belong to a Socialist organization at Volo.  

Queen Olga, the widow of King George, arrived in Athens this evening. She will leave at midnight on a Russian steamer for Salonika.
