The captur. .o near Amsterdam, N, Y of Chung Slug, the chum of William Leon, tho Chinese wanted In Now
York City for tho murder of EUlo Slgel, granddaughter of the late General Franz eigel, led the police to believe
tliut they wero clouo on the trail of the murderer. It Is positively known that Leon went to Washington after tho
murder, and the pollco are certain that Chong Sing knows moro about the movements of tho fugutlvo than ho
first told. He Is held ns an accomplice, and the detectives gained a confession fiom him that proved Elslo Slgel
was foully murdered by Ling. Paul Slgol, father of the murdered girl, believes that It was Chong Sing who
lured Elsla to Leon's room on the pretense that the man was seriously ill and that I-eon killed her In u fit of
jealous rago. Clui Gain, tho wealthy owner of n Chinatown restaurant, was ulso an admirer of Elslo Slgol, he
and Leon being rivnls for her affections. The detectives have gained much Information regarding Elslo's associ
ation with Chlncso from her cpiUilu, Mabel Slgel. Many letters signed "Elsie" and somo signed "Mabel" wdru
found In the effects of Leon nnd Oaln, but MnbPl Slgel denied that any of thorn were wiltten by her. Elslo Slgel
became interested in the Chinese through her mother's work as a missionary In tho oriental quurter In Now York,
nnd the girl gradually fell Into company of tho vicious Chlneso who used religion ns a cloak for their villainy.
The New York police are now threatening to closo up tho missions In Chinatown unless their promoters agree to
keep women and girls away from them and and employ only men as. missionaries.

WAILUKU, Mnul. July 3. The flro
which destroyed tho Japanese two
story building In tho rear of Senator
Win. T. Roblnbon's butcher shop on
Market street, at 1 o'clock Sunday
morning, July 4th, wns tho wickedest
and tho llerccst that has threatened
the whole town of Walluku, Never n
flro hefnro came so near to wiping out
tho hutlnicn blocks of Walluku as
this ono. Tho fire started in a two
story frnii'.e building used by Japanese
as u hath house. I'ollceman K, l?cs
tiiuo, who first saw It, said that tho flro
started fiom tho kitchen. Poqplo were
dancing at The Hieakeis, Knhulul, at
that hour and It took some of them
less than Ave minutes to reach Wal
luku In their automobiles when they
realized that their own property was
in tho path of tho flames,
Maruno. n well-known chnfleur, was
outside tho Aloha saloon. Tho police
man got into his machine and went
to tho fire station, ut the same tlmo
yelling tljo alarm of flio.
Maruono and a few police tinkers
on hand and Jailor Jos. V. Welch, who
Is also assistant chief engineer of
Walluku Flro Co. No. 1, and J.'L. Coke,
another fireman, hitched tho hoso cart
to the autoniuhlto nnd In loss than
three minutes the outfit was at tho
sceno of tho Are. Harney Joy of Ho
nolulu, got there at tho snmo tlmo
with the llreman, and rendered most
valuable assistance, Tho adjacent
buildings were scorched nnd nt limes
they appeared to ho doomed, but with
tho wondeiful work of the fireman
nnd Sheriff Saffery and Dnrney Joy,
tho (Ire on tho adjoining buildings
was put out. Superintendent of
Water Works W. E. Hal was thoio
too and worked hard. Tho flames roso
socral hundred feet In the air, but
luckily thorp was vciy little iwlml
Tho goods In D, Hnta's storo In
Itobtnson Dlock, weru moved out Into
I tlio road, while his wife was moved
Into a cottage across the street,
I By two o'clock tho fire was under
control, hut pollco continued working
putting' out Btray bits of the flro until
.four o'clock lr. the morning, Sheriff
Saffery In his Investigations bus
learned that the flro started from ttho
kitchen used to heat water for tho
baths. C. U. Lurkln of tho Walluku
bank,, was among those who worked
hard to save the town, The thousand
feet of new hoso supplied tho flro de
partment by the Board of Supervisors
came In very handy. Muny of those
who have considered tho firemen us

as fit materials for the dump pile,
