Grand Jury Ignored the Charges
Made by Moy Ah Sing.
FIGHT OF CHINESE FACTIONS
It la Averted That All Sin; "Wan Shot
by Sue Gow In Order to Ger'Rid
of Their Enemy Lum Kee Sine Is
"Wanted by the Police and "Will
Ho Held on a Serious Charge.
Moy F. Chew, who was recently given
a hearing in the police court, charged with
shooting Moy Ah Sing, the laundryman,
comer of Four-and-a-hnlf street aud Mis
souri avenue, and held by Judge Miller to
await the action of the grand Jury, has no
longer the charge of attempted murder
hanging over him, as that body, it is
learned, ignored the case.
The eae is a lemarUableone, and shows
a condition of affairs among the Chinese
inhabitants of this city interesting and at
the same time, perhaps, somewhat alarm
ing. Moy Ah Sing claims that on the night of
the Fourth of July, while standing in his
doorway, he was shot in the letr by Moy F.
Chew. Sue Gow and a colored girl named
Annie Brooks, both in ihe employ of Moy
Ah Sing, testified that they saw the
Annie Brooks afterwards stated, how
ever, that she saw Sue Gow shoot Ah Sing,
and that it was a put up job to get Moy
Chew in tioible. Her testimony was sub
stantiated by Miranda Shaw and Mary
Crown, two colored women employed by
Ah Sing, wno heard Ah Sing's wife say
that Sue Gow shot her husband.
The defense claimed that the job was
put up in order to get Moy F. Chew out
of the way and prevent him from making
certain disclosures in regard to the alleged
gang of highbinders, of which Ah Sing's
place is said to be the headquarters.
GANG CAME HERE.
It is claimed that there are about 5,000
or G.00O members of various highbinder
societies in the United States, drifting
about from one city to another, and that
for a long time their headquarters were in
San Francisco. About a year or so ngo,
however, the authorities there determined
to get rid of them, and in three raids over
250 Chinamen were arrested. These were
driven out of town and sought quarters in
different parts of the country.
A gang of about fifteen of them, com
posed. The Times is informed, of Ah Moy,
Ah Sing, Suo Gow, Lum Kcc Sing, Wong
Gett, Charley Tong and others from dif
ferent parts of the country have located
hero and taken up their quarters at the
Sam Lee laundry, corner Four-and-a-half
street and Missouri avenue. They have re
duced'' the price of laundry work, and It is
also claimed that they are continually
bulldozing and blackmailing their poorer
and more ignorant countrymen.
The latindrymen, it is said, put the matter
in the hands of Moy F. Chew, and he
with the assistance or a lawyer, began to
bunt up the records of the alleged high
binders. A great deal of. damaging in
formation was, it is f aid, obtuined by them,
which they were about to file with the
District attorney, and as Boon ae the high
binders got wind of thefactthey decided that
Moy F. Chew must be gotten rid of.
It was accordingly arranged that Moy
Ah Sing was to make the sacrifice, and ho,
after doping himself with opium to render
the effect comparatively painless, got Hue
Gow to inflict a slight wound in tho leg.
As soon as this was done Sue Gow aud
another Chinaman rushed breathlessly to
the police headquarters and announced that
one of their countrymen had been shot by
Moy F. Chew. Sue Gow remained with tho
detectives until they had arrested Moy F.
Chew, and they identified him as the man
who did the shooting.
PRACTICE OF HIGHBINDERS.
It is a common practice of Chinamen of
the lower class to endeavor to get their
enemies in trouble in this fashion. They
have frequently been known to visit the
lodging of their enemy while it was
unoccupied and leave something of value
there; then run off and get a search war-
The article they claimed to be stolen
would be found in the room of the person,
and suspicion would, of course, point
strongly toward him. They have also
been known to kill themselves, on the door
steps of an enemy in the hopes of getting
him convicted of murder.
Lum Kee Sing, one of the leaders in
this city, is from Victoria, British Colum
bia, and it is claimed that there is an
Indictment against him there for murder.
Policeman Sullivan has a warrant charg
ing him with being a suspicious character,
and an efrort will be made to hold him
here while the case in Victoria is in
vestigated. The outrages perpetrated by the high
binders, both on their own countrymen and
on Americans, have been numerous and
horrible. Somo years ago a Chinese girl
was brought to San Francis co by some mem
bers of a highbinder society and sold. She
rerused to obey the commands of her master
and upon the sociey learning -of it aho
was taken out of the house at night and
after being stripped was hung up to a tree
by her heels and her flesh cut from her
bones In strips.
Charlie Tons Sing, one of themembers of
tho alleged gang, Is a big strapping China
man, very Intelligent, and it is understood
that he is an applicant for a position on
the New York police force. He was on the
Jeanettc expedition with Greely, and it
was he who, acting under orders from
Greely, shot Private nenry, because he
was eating more meat than the rest of
the crew. He is a fearless, bold, and de
Many of the men arc noticeable by the
absence of that familiar head adornment of
the Chinaman a queue and it is said that
this is due to the fact that so many of
them have been imprisoned. Whenever
they are locked up in the West their queue
is shorn oif, and it is almost impossible for
a full-grown Chinaman to grow another.
CANNOT FIGHT IN TEXAS
Atty. Gen. Crane's Opinion on the
He Hold That the Court Had a Per
fect" Right to Change the Offense
(By Associated Press.)
Austin, Tex., July 14, Attorney General
Crane to-day gave out his opinion in tho
Corbctt-Fitzsiminons fight cae, at Dallas
The attorney general, in his opinion to
day, holds that the law of 1S!1 was and
still is operative. lip contends "that ac
cording to the contention of thoso who be
lieve that tho statute against prize
fighting is void on account of its declara
tion that the crime is felony and the pun
ishment bf a misdemeanor is applied
thereto, tho statute will he perfect if the
word misdemeanor could be substituted for
the word felony."
"Following the doctrine announced in
one of our court decisions, namely, that
the intention frequently controls the ex
press language in the construction, of
statutes, the court was arpcrrect liberty
to eliminate tuat word felony, if such
elimination were necessary to give erfect
to tho legislative intent.
"It musubT plain that the court believed
that the intention of the legislature was
to prohibit pme-rightins. If the court
further believed that the fact that the
legislature affixed the punishment of a
misdemeanor to the orfense of prize-righting
and tho word felony was inserted by
mlstake, it was at perfect liberty to dis
regard that word in the construction of
"Further, the validity of the act in
question is not affected by the revision of
tho code. The civil code passed the
legislature before the penal code did and
not afterwards but notwithstanding all
tho assertions to the contrary, the new re
vised code, It will be seen, specifically
statutes thatalllaws embodied in therevised
statutes which were in exigence the time
of its adoption should be considered to be a
continuation and not as new enactments.

the sheriff of Dallas county to see that it is
enforced. He is the authority and we will
look to him to Bee that the law is enforced."
SODA FIZZED MERRILY.
Hut Otherwise New York's Sunday
Was Dry as a Chip.
(By United Press.)
New York, July 14.-This city passed
through another arid Sunday to-day, and
from the low, deep growls emitted by
the enforced "drys," it is a mistaken Idea
to suppose that the people who want their
Sunday drink are getting used to the pro
hibitive state of affairs.
However, it is certain that to-day was a
counterpart of its predecessor einco the
Roosevelt fiat went forth, and there is
every indication that its successors will
be the same.
Since the decision of Judge McAdam,
which was rendered a few days ago, in
which it was held that the sale of soda
water on Sunday was Illegal, there has
been much speculation as to the courso
the police would pursue in regard to
that kind of traffic.
The druggists and Eoda,water dispensers,
however, were not interfered with to-day
and the soda fizzed as merrily as ever.

Fenton G. Wells Thinks Arthur
Was Killed By Edelin.
INQUEST TO BE HELD TO-DAY
The Alleged Suicide's Parent Believes
He Has Su f flclent Evidence to CamsO
the ex-Detectlvo to Ho Held for
the Grand Jury Tell-tale Hloody
Handprint in the Room.
Mr. Fenton G. Wells, father of Arthur E.
Wells, who died Saturday of a pistol shot
wound inflicted in an attic room at No. 613
Sixth street northwest, Friday evening,
is satisfied that his son did not commit
Ho thinks he was shot to death by ex
Detective Win. Z. Edelin and believes that
lie has sufficient evidence to have Edelin
held for the grand jury. He does not be
lieve his boy was guilty of taking Mr.
Ornson's buggy and harness and is anxious
to cP'fir his name of that reproach.
Tne case will be investigated by Coroner
Hammett in au inquest beginning at 11
a. m. to-day.
Mr. Wells spent much time yesterday
looking up the facts. At his .sou's room he
found a tell-tale hand-print in blood.
Arthur Wells was tilting when found by
DetectivesGallilier and Rhodes, in Uiealcove
of a dormer window.
IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE DONE IT.
It Is claimed for Mr. Edelin that it would
have been a physical impossibility for him
to shoot the young man while seated there
so that the bait would range from the right
temple up to the crown of his head as the
Lmergeney surgeons found it had done.
But while the blood spurted from the
bullet hole out upon the wall and the
floor to the right of the dying man, there
is upon the wall at the left the bloody
print of a right hand. It could not have
been made by the left hand, and Mr. Wells
believes it was certainly made by his eon
in raiding. His theory is that when
Arthur said: "What did you bring that
man up here for," he arose and started
They closed in a momentary struggle,
and Edelin fearing Arthur was armed , shot
him. As Arthur sank back Into the T
chair he threw his right hand up to his
temple, and by a natural course it passed
on over to the wall where the imprint is
He thinks Edelin then set his victim up
in the eh.ui, ran down stair and M-nt for
the police while he guarded the door with
pistol iu liis hand.
THINKS ILL-FEELING EXISTED.
He believes there was ill-feeling be
tween the two men beginning with their
acquaintance over the young lady's watch,
of which Edelin told the night Arthur was
shot. He says Edelin first denied an In
timate acquaintance with his son, but
finally admitted that they knew each other
very well, but evaded questions about the
Josephus Wells, however, knew that his
brothe had lost a little watch belonging
to MiaS Cnrrie Lowe, daughter of Daniel
C. Lowe, a carpenter, living at No. 517
Tenth street southeast. It had been
loaned him by her younger sister, Miss
Sarah. Mr. Wells and Josephus called
on the family yesterday. They found
that Arthur Wells became acquainted
with Miss Sarah through delivering butter
to her mother, and had called several
times. One evening he got her to lend
him her older sister's wntch till his
own was repaired. When she asked him
for it he laughed and said he would bring
it back after awhile. Later he said
lie had lost it. Finally Mrs. Lowe asked
Sir. Edelin, who was an acquaintance of
the family whe nthey lived down near
Piscataway, in Prince George's county,
Mr. Edelin, Wells .and the Lowe family
believe, finally got pay for the watch.
He has never called on them since.
Arthur Wells told bis brother that the
watch was lost. Mr. Edelin, however,
says Wells did not pay him, but claimed
that he paid Miss Carrie Lowe and showed
a receipt Xor $4.50 from Miss Carrie Lowe
in payment for the watch, which was a
small silver chatelain affair not worth
Again Mr. Wells points out that the de
scription sent out by Mr. Orrison-of the
man who got his buggy and harness does
not tally with his son.
This, as given tn July S, is of a man who
gave tho name of Mitchell, five feet four
inches high, dark complexion and hair,
with mustache, light suit of clothes. Ar
thur Wells had no lightsuit of clothes, never
had a mustache,, was five feet eight inches,
rather slender, and had not a dark com
plexion. He found a number oflivery men whobad
traded with Arthur and all said he was en
tirely honest in his dealings. He could not
find anyone whoheard Arthur say he would
not be taken alive or that he was going to
He feels keenly the fact that neither
Edelin nor tho police notified him of tho
shooting when it occurred and thinks it
strange. If he had been at his eon's side,
ho says, he would have used every effort
to have him restored to consciousness so
as to say who shot him. On the contrary,
he is informed that when there were signs
of recovery anaesthetics were administered.
