Special to The New York Times.
Delhi, N. Y., Jan. 6 -- WILLIAM WINTERS, a druggist, his wife, and JOHN O'CONNOR were burned to death in a fire which totally destroyed the American House between 4 and 5 o'clock this morning. Eighteen other occupants of the hotel barely escaped with their lives, and were unable to save anything. The only transient guest was ALBERT TAYLOR, a traveling salesman for JOSEPH WILD & Co. of New York. He escaped by dropping from a window on the first floor. The three persons who perished resided on the second floor.
The American House was one of the best-known hotels between Albany and Binghamton. It was established in 1810. Twelve years ago it was partly burned and had been rebuilt.
