(By United Prees)
Philadelphia, Sept. 27. ? Walking
into a room on the ninth .floor of the
Hotel Walton this morning, a woman
believed to be Mt-b. J. ,C. Ledur of
New York, shot and killed J. C.
Gravier, president of the Alhambra
Garage Company of New York, and
critically wounded his wife. Sho then]
turned the pistol on herself and '
committed suicide. The tragedy ta |
overspread with mystery. The sister ,
| of the dead man has left New York
for Philadelphia and has declared
that she will "tell the whole story
and will shield nobody, after seeing
the body." She declined to say
whether Gravier was married. He
had registered at the hotel as "Mr.
and Mrs. Gravier." Jealousy, born
of spurred love, is believed to have
been been the motive.

bister of Gravier. this afternoon iden
