Lock Wing, Chinese Vice-Consul in this city,
'vas shot through the tett lung at Ms office. No.
IS. Broadway, at 2:33 p. m. yesterday, by a Cr.i
ne«a cook, recently arrived from Atlantic City.
and "died from the effects of his wound at St.
Gregory's Hospital at"S:2O p m. According to
the story told by Wong Bow. Cheung, the assail
ant, his motive for .shooting Lock Wing was
ths laitar 5 refusal to help him in getting a job
and the vie*~conaul'a dsmani that "^Tcng leave
the office
>"o ore but Lock Wing and the assailant "ere
in the consul's office at the time. • Charles E.
JElacb, ••■■'. ? '.-.a-- an office next dcor, en the nfth ;

comxnrr.otlon la the hallway. E. J. Miller, who
has. an office on the fourth floor, said that he
tan- thJ two rsea fall down the flight of stairs
from the fifth fioer as if they ' ere locked to
gether Lock Wing, he aaid. shouted. "Hi shot
me? He shot me!'
"When the two men landed at the fool of the
stairs en the fourth floor.' continued Mr. Milier,
"one of them broke loose and ran I did what
I could to assist the vice-consu'. taking his head
in my lap and fanning him. I asked him if that
was the man who shot his and he said yes.
He asked me to send to the office for bis coat,
which contained seme valuable papers. He
wished '• be' tak^n to Roosevelt Hospital, he
Three riggers for J. Fitzhenry. a furniture
mover, were working on the fourth floor at th^
time. One ■: them. Char-lea ntahewr. said
that he tripped th« fleeing Chfcaman up as he
ran downstairs, but when Wong drew his re
volver on him be did not attempt" to hold him.
Jack Worth, another one of the riggers, fol
lowed the assailant downstair-;, out of the build
ing and up to No. 12 Broadway, Wong having in
the mean time' dropped his revolver Worth
knocked "the Chinaman down and sat on him
until Frank W. Dun:. a special officer at the
New York Produce Exchange Bank. 'came up
and arrested Wens.
Patrolmen. Wilson end Rir.s took ihe« prisoner
to the, lst Precinct 'station, .in Jolm street, sur
rounded by a crowd of;people from .'the Battery
and lower : Broadway. Lock Wing was taken in
an ambulance to St. Gregorys Hospital and
placed in a private room unQe'ra private nurse.
Dr. Marshall McDufH< Dr. Ralph Stuart, Dr.
Reeies Turner and Dr. Joseph Forbes made a
hurried examination, and decided not to move
the patient.
Look Wing retained consciousness until the
end 'came, and suffered little or no pain. At b
o'clock be was talking with Dr. Dietrich, the
house physician, an.i Miss Kraemer. the private
nurse, who was taking care of him. He paid
he felt comfortable.' His pulse was good and
his temperature only slightly sub-ncrrcal.
At S. 15. o'clock, he took a sudden turn for the
worse, and before anything could t done for
him he died. Dr. McOuflle, .who is vititing sur
geon at Flower- Hospital and at St. Gregory's.
arrived ten minutes after Lock Wing breathed
his last. He examined '■ the body and said death
was due to shock. He found no signs or either
external or Inttrnal hemorrhage. In cases Of
gun or pistol shooting: where th« shot is de
livered at close range-, death from shock to the
system is very common.
Dr. McDuffie, who had already informed the
Chinese Legation at Washington of the shooting
and received word to spare no expense in caring
for Lock Win^, at once telegraphed to Washing
ton that the vice-consul was degd. He also in
formed Mrs. Lock : V.'ing
Fifteen minutes after Lock Wing died Wing
Su Ho, the Chinese Consul here, arrived at the
hospital. He had just received word of the
shooting. He was allowed to see the body al
though the Coroner had not come Coroner
Shrady_sent word after he was informed cf
Look Wing's death that he would not inspect
the body until this morning, to it remained at
the hospital last night. The Coroner said he
would hold the inquest Thursday or Friday. Ha
obtained no statement from Lock Wing when
he visited him, right after the shooting, as the
injured man was too weak to talk.
Wing Su Ho was greatly agitated, and at once
got into communication with the Chinese Lega
tion at Washington. Ha said that he did not
believe Lock Wing had any enemies, and he
was totally at a loss to account for the motive
for the murder, except that Wong Bow Cheung
was crazy. Ha was absolutely sure that the
shooting had no bearing on the Elsie Sigel case
or. any connection with the feuds of the rival
Chinatown tongs.
The consul said that he had seen Wong Bow
Cheung at his office, but had never spoken to
him, as Lock Win? usually talked with him. Ho
said he had been told that Wong was crazy, and
he believed this to be the case.
Lock Wing married an American woman of
education sixteen years ago. but the couple
have no children. Of late years Mrs. Lock Wing
has been in poor health, and she looked like a
very sick woman when she went to the hospital
yesterday afternoon to see her husband. The
Lock Wings lived at No. 101 West 70th street.
Mrs. Lock Wing arrived at the hospital about
an hour after her husband was taken there. ?hc
pleaded that she be allowed to take her r.us
band home. After a abort talk with Dr. Mc-
Dutfie, who had been In attendance on Lock
Wing, she appeared calmer and was taken * )
her husband's side. The wounded man greeted
her with a smile, but did not speak. Mrs. Loci;
Wing remained in the room for about an hour
and then left the hospital in the company of two

comfortable majority on the final test.". It was
the thorough knowledge c f the rules and th*
parliamentary strategy of Representative Payr.
that most contributed to the victory. When tb»
debate had been exhausted and the hour for vot
ing arrived. Representatives Mann and j Fits-
S*rald planned to offer a motion to recommit
the bill to the conference with specific instruc
tions. They were forestalled, however, by the
chairman of the Ways and Means Committed.
who was recognized by the Speaker and Imme
diately moved to recommit the bill and demand
ed the previous question. The Republican*
under his guidance, voted for this motion, while
the Democrats opposed It. When it had. carried
ami the vote came on the motion to recommit
the report th* Republicans shifted and vote*
It was on this vote that the combined opposi
tion forces made their strongest fight, and cam?
within six votes of victory. Had Representative
Mann obtained an opportunity to move to m
commit the bill he would probably have- been
supported by the full -insurgent" strength.
which, if it had combined at any one time, would
have been sufficient to reject th« report.

On the announcement el the final vote Repre

congratulations. For more than ten minutes hi
stood near his seat and shook hands with al
most cry member <■: the majority. Hs had .
been a striking figure in the day's debate, and
although th'? last rive months have carried rfltli
them incessant work he bore tbe noisy attacks
on Urn report with great patience, not once re
fusing to answer the frequently pointless ques

the debate was the fact that no speaker, either
Republican or Democrat, failed to give the
chairman of the Ways and Means Committee
full credit forth* immense amount, of- work &•

lack of serious attention which has been given
to the measure by the minority was never mere
clearly exhibited than by these questions. Ml -
