IIo Yong had a wifo in China, and it was
known that ho intended to return within a
short time to tho Flowery Land.
; Moh Lung, who works in tho cigar store at
No. 8 Mott street, says Yong visited the
Chinese shipping agency in that street one
day last week and asked as to the cost
of the overland and ocean passage. IIo was
iu Chinatown the whole of Monday night
and spoke of giving up work. He said bis

There is something very suspicious about
, the way tho crime came to tho notice of the
' police. OuBtomerswho went to tho store
yesterday morning found the door locked,
and no one appeared to bo at work
inside. Curtains wero fixed over tho
window and over tho glass partition
over the door in such a way that no view of
the interior could bo had. It has since been
i learned that Ah Dock and Ah Hop,
, a man who worked for the firm,
were down in Mott street getting
advice from their follow-oonntrymon what
should be done with tho body. It was not
until 3 o'clock in tho afternoon that Coroner
Nugent was notified and ho v, as told that tho
man hod just been found dead in. bed.
i Ho went there and found tho corpse lying
on a cot in tho rear room. A great gash was
in tho left sido of tho throat, and
Ah Dock produced a razor which
ho said ho found on tho floor. The
dead- man's right hand, was doubled
' up under bis body, a circumstance which
in itself almost forbids tho theory of suicide.
i 'the body was cold and stiff and the young
man had apparently been dead many hours.
, The blood had congealed in a ghastly pool on
f iha Ann,
Ah Dock and tho other Chinaman told tho
Coroner they had just found the body and
that Yong must have cut his throat while
they wero ironing in the other room. They
said ho had been sick for several
months and was very despondent. They hid
the faot that thore was another member of
the firm and that ho had not been seen sinco
Coroner Nugent cave a permit to removo
the body to an undertaker pending an in
vestigation, and it was not till the dead-wagon
halted in front of tho door that the polico
, wero awaro of what had happened. Detec
tive 'Warner was passing at the time and he
went in. The body had been straightened
out and tho detective was thrown off the
scent by tho plausible story told by the laun
drymon. ' An official from the Chlneso Consulate was
I at the store this morning, being prompted to
an investigation by the statements of Moh
Lung and other friends of the dead man.
The strange part of the affair is that no
.i money or papers were found on the dead
,. man, or in the narrow quarters which he
occupied at the laundry. Ah Dock says he
does not know where Yong's money is, but
that Yu Sing will mako it all right when he
turns up. ,
, Cant. Allaire is not yet prepared to say
I whether he looks upon the case as one of
' i murder or suicide, lout it is known that his
ward detectives have been looking for Yco
t , i King since early last evening and aro still en-
V , 'gaged in the search.
The body is atsJames Naughton's under
taking establishment, 35 Mott street, awaiting
the action of the Coroner. When Yong's
friends get permission to bury it there will
be a fine funeral. Scraps or consecrated

j - This" case recalls the mysterious murder of
the laundryman, Yu Cheo King, at 117 Glin-
ton street, three years ago, IIo was found
f dead in'his store one morning with eleven
terrible wounds in his body, and a murderous
creese in his heart. The crime was evidontly
prompted by motives of revenge and three of
the man's partners were arrested on suspicion,
but it could not be fixed on any of them.

AN APPEAL TO INDEPENDENT CITIZENS.
At their convention last night tho Jlepnb
licans unanimously adopted tho following
appeal to independent citizens i
The Itepnbllcin party of thla city of New York In
County Convention assembled, makes tho follow
ing appeal to Its members and to our citizens In
ltccognlzlng that In municipal politics occasions
may arise, when conspicuous merit In a tried pub
llo officer of opposite faith from our own com
mands consideration superior to the claims of par
tisanship, this convention has placed in nomina
tion for District-Attorney Mr. De Lancey Nicoll,
whose honesty, ability and untiring energy as
Assistant to the present Incumbent of that offlco
entitle him to promotion at the banda of his fellow
citizens. Irrespective of party.
Our party in the pasthas frequently showed
Itself superior to parties and consideration In the
(election of candidates for tho Judiciary. Tho oc
casion has now arisen when the Republicans, In
recognition of tried merit and Integrity, hate In
dorsed the name of the preaent District-Attorney
for election to the new Judgeship.
Tho Republican Convention having thus shown
Its readiness to reward conspicuous merit In Ju
dicial and iiuast Judicial officers regardless of parti
san claims, has completed Its county ticket by the
nomination of Hi publicans of conspicuous merit.
Tho Republican party of this city pledges Itself
to honesty aud business methods in the adminis
tration of theso publlo trusts In the municipal
government whtin it now seeks to place In the
Suiiils of the candidates It has put In nomination.
We believe tuat publlo officers should be held to
a strict accountability and should be men of the
highest qualifications. The ticket now presented
by this convention la tbe best earnest of our
sincerity In tho enunciation of these principles.
FELLOWS ALWAYS TUE BOODLXu'H V'ltlKNI).
Tho cohorts of Col. Fellows aro very angry
becnuso tho men opposed to him persist in
parading the Colonel ns a powerful pleader
for boodlers aud " Doss " Tweed. Col. Fel
lows was a protege' of Tweed and vas Assist
ant District-Attomey nndcr Samuel 11. Gar
vin when the Tweed lling smash-up
came. Tweed's influence got him tho
position. Feotilovtbo wero eager for prompt
proseoutiou of the Tweed gang used to say
that it wa exceedingly fortunnto for them
that Col. Fellows was iu u position whero ho
was nble to bo of service. No opportunity
was lost by Tweed's friends in keiping pros
It v,as through "Iloss" Tweed that Col.
Fellows cunie to New York. Tweed prom
ised to look out for him and ho did. Fellows
never lost tin opportunity to show his gratl.
tude for the old man's protection. Ho was
HlwnvH willing to speak iu hit belmlf, nnd
did not consider his ofllcu as publlo pros
ecutor a bar to making ttutiip speeches
on behalf of tho riugsters, of which

,tsllfe llrtum to Her Vrdtttnl Ta-Vay
trlfi a Jlnnner that Suilt lltr.
considered to be ono. A month before
Tweed was arrested, when tho full knowl
edge of his corruption was iu possession of
the Distrlot-Attorney's office, ho was nomi
nated for 8tate Treasurer an a " vindication "
of tho chargo mado against him by
intelligent citizens. Thero was a big
ratification at which Col. Fellows spoke
in defense of Tweed. Iu arraigning the com
mittee of citizens who woro tryiug to driyo
the bosses out of power, Col. Fellows sold :
" There is another reason why you should
refuse, to lend vour support to theso men.
Who is It, forsooth, who aro work
ing out our political salvation ? I havo
no words to speak my detestation and
scorn for those who have goie ovor from our
own ranks to tho other sido. Tllden,
O'Conor and tho Domocratio Reformors wero
alluded to. I find these men in this mis-
Soverned, this debauched, this corrupt city;
find that they havo made vast fortunes
under the forms and tho rule that they affeot
to despise; I find that they have been hungry
aspirants for office, and which they havo
failed to obtain a publlo indorsement of by
t he ballot b of the peoplo."
Col. Fellows urged tho audience to trust
those men in tho government of their city af
fairs who had boen found worthy of their
confidenco and who had so long served them
with satisfaction. Ho commented strongly
on tho condnet of the Committee of Seventy,
who desired to remove the conduct of tho
cftsqof Uaggerty from the District-Attorney's
offlco to one of Its own partisans. 7
Col FolIoWs's friends around tho City Hall
aro not contradicting his record ns an advo-,
cate bf bosses and boodlers. They excuse
It on the ground that It was tho Colonel's
duty to defend tho men who had mado him
what he was and what ho is.

Henry W. Unger, who is Secretary of tho
County Democracy organization in the
Twenuoth Assembly District, has come out
for Mr. Nicoll for District-Attorney and is
making an activo canvass in his behalf. His
action nas created considerable excitement
In the district organization and threatens to
disrupt it, as ho numbers among his
personal followers a majority of tho
committeemen, who will undoubtedly
cast their fortunes with him. Ho Is
also Secretary of tho district Democratic
club, which includes in its membership of
250 some of tho most prominent Democrats
in tho ward, all of whom favor De Lancey
Nicoll as against the Man of Judgments.
Mr. Unger, who is now engaged in
the practico of law, was stenographic secre
tary of tho Grand Jury during the entiro
period covered by the boodle prosecutions.
He said to-day to an Evening Would reporter
"Beforo the Domocratio Convention as
sembled I made a personal canvass among
somo of our best business men and financiers
with a view to their making an independent
nomination of Mr. Nicoll for District
Attomey nnd every man whom I then
saw was not alono heartily iu
favor of tho movem :nt, but was willing to
take an active part in it. The attitudo of tho
Democratic politicians at tho time, how
over, was so favorable that wo
thought such n nomination inexpedient
and dropped it for the time being. Among
theso gentlemen was William A. Whee
lock, President of the Central Na
tional Bank, a dyed.in-tho-wool Republican,
who said although ho never voted for a Dem.
ocrat iu his life, yet In the present campaign
his ballot would count for De Lancey Nicoll.
Mr. Joseph H. Brown. Vice-President of the
Union Leuguo Club, expressed himself in
Btlil stronger language.
NICOLL HOUND TO WIN.
Following are expressions of opinion con.
coming the nominations which were ob
tained to-day by Evenino Wobld reporters.
Polico Commissioners French and McClavo
were in ccstnio s over the nominations, and
dcolarcd that any other action by tho con
vention would havo been suicidal.
" The stone that the Democratio builders
rejocted," said Mr. Fronch, " has become the
chief in tho comer of tho temple of the
people's rights. Nicoll will win In a canter."
John J. O'Brien. Chief of tho Bureau of
Elections Tho spirit of indejwndenco iu
local politics is growing very rapidly and
will be felt severely in some quarters this
Polico Commissioner Porter thought the
canvass of Nicoll would bo sharp nnd that
he would givo Col. Fellow so lively tussle.
