A tremendous sensation has been caused by the discovery by the police of the bodies of Herr Andrew Lachman, his wife and daughter buried in the garden of their country villa just outside Bucharest, the Vienna correspondent of the “Northern Whig” of Belfast reports.

Lachman was a very wealthy merchant with business connections in England and America. His wife was a very beautiful woman, and his daughter had many admirers. The family are supposed to be the victims of an anti-Semitic crime.

A remarkable part of this tragedy is that no word has been received from Bucharest direct.
