KIG11T I'ERISIIED AT SKA. IVOKFOLK, Va., March 2S.—The Norwegian bark Dictator, from Pcnsacola, Fla., to West Hartlepool, En«., ladon with pine lumber, with a crew of fifteen and the captain's younpf wife and little boy of 3 years came ashore in a strong' easterly gale Friday morning- four miles south of Cape Henry and two miles north of Virginia Beach hotel. Full crews from two life-saving- stations were promptly on hand and began firing- lines to the ill-fated bark. The guns could not deliver the lines so far, though they were repeatedly fired. The ship finally succeeded in getting- a line ashore tied to a barrel, which the surf carried to the life-savers. The breeches buoy was quickly rigged and sent to the vessel, but unfortunately the bark's crew was ignorant of its use, and the rescue was delayed until Capt. Drinkwater, of the life-saving station, wrote instructions, put them in a bottle and sent it to the Dictator by the line connecting the vessel with the shore. The first man was delivered ashore in eig-ht minutes and seven others were rescued before sunset During the entire day the ship rolled and pitched terribly and made Ahe work of rescuing the unhappy sailors exceedingly difficult. At nightfall there were still nine persons on the bark and among- the number the captain, his wife and little child. The captain had urged his wife all during the day to take the buoy and come ashore, but she steadily refused, as she would not leave her husband and child, and only one could take the buoy at a time. The bark went to pieces Friday night and the seven that remained on her have been lost, including the wife of the captain. The captain, just before the ship went to pieces, sprang into the sea with his son strapped to his back and reached the shore alive, but the boy was lost, making- a total loss of eight lives. The Dictator was trying 1 to make Hampton roads, having 1 been disabled by hurricanes since the 12th inst. All that could be gathered from the half- dead sailors as to the cause of the stranding- of the vessel was that they did not know where they were, the sun not having been seen for four daya and the weather so thick that they struck the breakers before they could see the coast. The life-savers worked all day with great heroism. The apparently slow progress of the work of rescue is due to trfi fact that a lifeboat could not live in the surf. MURDERED A MINISTER. Political Assassins Shoot Down SI. Balt- clileff at Sofia. , SOFIA, March 28. —At S o'clock Friday evening, while Premier Stambouloff and M. Baltchieff, minister • of finance, who had been, walking 1 together, were about to enter their official residences, which adjoin each other, a man suddenly confronted them with a revolver and fired three shots point blank at M. Baltehieff, who fell dead. A crowd immediately collected at the scene of the .shooting, bnt the assassin succeeded in making- good his escape owing to the darkness and confusion that prevailed among the, people. A number of persons who had witnessed the murder report that the assassin had three accomplices who as- assisted him to escape. The shooting- of Minister Baltchieff has caused the greatest excitement here, and the police are scouring- the city for all those connected, with the terrible deed. No motive has been suggested for the murder of the minister of finance, but it is presumed that the conspirators may have intended to take the life of Premier Stambouloff, but that in the darkness of the evening they mistook M. Balt- chieff for the man they had marked as their victim. Finished Their Terms.

A SAD TRAGEDY. NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 28.— News was brought to this city Friday night by a traveling- salesman of a killing in Williamson county.
