out (intent of tha past by nn amply satisfying
victory. It was n dellant dnnce. too, for thoro
was a saucy dignity In tho way the speedy
team rncbt tossed her bend nbovo the waves
whenever she settled down to ronl work: Mid
every wilful burst of speed deemed lo bo
meant for n challenge to the disdnlnful Nor
wood. In short, the Yamooe slurted out yastsrday
to beat tha Mary Powell on hor trip uu the
Hudson, and played with liar ns the Norwood

loitered by hor side as thouch fearful of tha
contest at first, and then burst aheid gloo

Jiwfll's discomfiture was more than complete,

The duel between the boats was fought on

Mrs. Bolton, wife of the Iter. Dr. Ilolton of
tho Centenary Methodist Church, with which
Miss Ava bocamo connected a short time ago.
bald in an iuteivlaw lo-day:
" llelore vou can fully enter into my reasons
for believing ihnt Misi Ava has met with loul
play, you "hould understand what manner of
peraou she wus. MIsb Ava was it lilgh'y
educated w man from the l.nglish upper clnss.
hhe spoke four languages lluently. hho has
beon an extenslvo traveller. Hhe has it
record lor distinguished behavior during
the Trench-Prussian war, nnd has eeen
nctlve service in the ambulances on
tho Held of battle. She was unmistakably u
lady. 11 er charities have been already spoken
about. They were unquestionably genuine.
Her Interest in her mission work was undoubt
edly eincere. On Wednesday evening, when
1 aciouipanled her In her carriage to iho
Chuich of the Holr J'nmilr. she showed ma
her wallet just before she alighted. It was
llter-illy crammed with 120 gold pieces. In
addition she showed ma about fl.UOU worth of
diamonds.
" ' Swear.' sho said, raising her 1 Ight bnnd In
a somw!i,U dramatic manner, "that if I over
disappear vou will not rest until you huvo
lound me, even It you have to link all Chicago
to join v ou in the seurch.'
" I did nm swear, of course, but I promKed
her most earnestly that 1 would. A fowdniB
after we came to bo acquainted she lold mo
something of her family affair, she said that
she had enemies and that hermntherhadbeeu
murdered. Bhe eeemed npprebonstve that
home such fate would overtake heiself. hhe
never said a word against the Catholic religion,
from which she was it convert, hho said sho
had mi nt many happy rtnvs ns a relic eusn,
but desired it broader scope for charitable
work than thosecluslon of tho clolsterulToided
her. During her connection with thnt Church
she was sent twice to i.nglaud n ecclesiasti
cal buslneh. bhe was un excellent wriier
upon theological and economic Kiih.ects. and
said that she h.ul worked in the causu of Ca
tholicism for mnny years tv ith the pon,
"I honestly hellovo thnt on Wednesday even
ing Vera Avn left that carriage with uli tho-o
'valuables for some unknown but perfectly
proper purpose SI a may have wished to
raise money on her diamonds in furtherance
of hercharitabln dslgns and have adoptod
the plan of simply passing through the ihuich.
Intending to return nnd rejoin me when bhe
had got through with her business. .Mr pros
ent houoht bollnt is that she has beon docovod
by some unbcrupulous villains Into a safe
plnce, and that she has been robbed and mur
uerod." " The strangest thing about this case." said
Lieut. Hhea lo-night, "In that this .Miss Ami.
who is written up as a lakfr, has refused
money from those she Interested In her
charitable work. A caller ut the station to
tiny, a mlnlsior, whose name I Piomlsed not
to divulge, told me that a chnritably Inclined
ehurch member offered the woman al.ouo but
she refused it. saying she bad Plenty of
money. The womnn had often said that goods
she Bhlpped from England hnd been lost nnd
thnt she pad applied for duplicate freight
certificates. The police visited the Custom

It has been generally known for n good whllo
that tho older Capt. McCullngh's precinct hnd
In It tho largest opium joint In tho city. Somo
tlmo ngo Tun Hum got n letter from n woman
In which she told a story of ber daughter'
visits to this joint. It wns also known thnt tho
proprietor was n certain Leo Hung Sing,
formerly n San Tranctsco joint koopor nnd n
mnn of unpleasant countenance. All this was
known to the vory children In tho block whero
the Joint was. Hut the police didn't believe It.
Last night aSus reporter went to the police
stntlon nnd nskod Sorccnnt Wclslng If the
joint was still theie.
"Tharo Isn't nnv joint." satd ho. "Wo don't
know of nny."
"It Is said thore Is ono thero." raid tho re
porter. "I'll send Detective Dissert nround to soe
Whon ho comes In." said the tiergonnt.
The reporter went around himself. Ho asked
a girl half n block away whero tho joint wns.
"Just over tho stable or iho saloon or tho
undeitnkor shop," snld sho. "They'rn nil
mixed up togotbor. and I don't know which It
is. Lvorybody kuows, nnd anybody can point
It out."
No. 17fi Last Third street Is n scfuat bui'dlnc.
with n snloon In one sldo of It nnd an under
taker's stnble In the other bide. The saloon Is
it dirty, bare-looking room, rlckerty and ill
smolilng. Near the door was n table, at which
n man and thiee women wero seated. The
women had their bends burled In their nrms
hnd resting on tho tnbto. One looked up
slecnlly. nnd It wns plain to be seen thnt eho
bud beon binoking opium. Tho man looked
sleepy also. He snld:
"Lookln' for Sing"
' Nes." said the reporter.
" Walk light up stairs."
The back part ot thn saloon was fragrant
with opium smoke. A battered stairway led lo
a bare loom ou the second Moor. There was a
door In thn renr pnitltlon wall. 11 glass door
with the Dams so dusty that only a taint light
came through. ....
This door was njarntd the glimpse of tha
room Ian olid was through it fulnt hnc. No
one guarded the door. Insldo wns a largo
loom with low wooden benches, or rather
tables, sen tered about. To tha right whh it
little nfllce Ilka tlm ticket ofllce ot it railway
station. Two Chinamen stood behind tho
counter, llelnnd them wns a couch with nn
onium layout. Thu wnllB ol the room
wore pniuied with forest ccencs in Unw
ary Theatre style Impossible trees growing
Irom u preposterous f-od. The celling was low
nnd grimed. On tho benches lay halt 11 doeu
smokers, lletween caeu two was one of tlio-n
tiny lamps that light the smoker to tha join ot
opium land. Somo were lying back plunged In
it profound and apparently pleasant reverie.
OtheiH weie just gutting tendr to smoke. All
snemod to ba ounu men. All had the pale,
clear complexion, and the weary look ot the
uplum smoker.
The ugly faced proprietor came forward.
No. there was no need lor seoreey. he snld.
Tho polloj were all right. Deleetlve lllssert
hnd boen around Saturday last, and things
wero arranged to go 011 as usual.

A ted shawl thrown over her udded to tha
beauty which the tiny lamp shonoon.

He said nothing to the hergennt nbout finding
the joint, but simply n-ked if ibe detective
had hunted it up yet.
" He's around there now." said he. I sent
Dissert. 'J hat's In his territory."
Presently lliseeitoamo In und whispered to

three olllrors irom tna upper part of tho sta

"Well," snid ho. "it's back of a room whero
there are a lot of wagons."
"Vo-." broke in tho Sergeant, who hid said a
short tlmo beloro that ho never saw tho place
or heard ot It. "this Chinnmnn hnagotinne
blnd 11 lot ot wagons. ou sen there's a stable
next door imi llioy use this second story to
storo wagon, nnd the thinnman was con
cealed by n partition behind Hioho w agons."
Theie were no wagons up there last night.
The front room was iiulto empty. Alter the
hergetnt hnd finished his description of the
iilace the reporter ald: "1 hat h nearly rlglii,
w is over thero 11 few minutes ngo."
'Iho Setgeant looked as though an Internal
convulsion wero ut work. The detective got
red up to the roots of his hair. Hut Lee Hung
Sing will not sell ovium ntility cents a smoke
for 11 few days at len-t. He. the two other Chi
nese. Wing Chung and Lee Lab. and the nine
white men, who all gave fictitious names and
addresses, were locked up.
The most curious-looking man of those Inst
was a long-haired, pallid man. who gave his

ranchman from California. Ha seamed to bo
the oldest smoker of all. nnd although he gave

Tho party ot four men, all graduates of the ';

expectations, nud such good progress) 2T 1
was made that on Aug. 8 they bad trill

Messrs. Cary nnd Cole proceoded toward tho '1
falls, which hnd beau reported to be distant
fifty mllos. Attar proceeding a short dls- ( 'flj
tnu co thoy wero obllgod, on account of th .
rapidity ot the currant, to leave their ' '
boat and mnko tho journey on foot. D
From this point tholr progress waa 2'
Incessantly very slow, tha woods being very ' II
thick and tho mosquitoes and black Hies ol ' B'
most unbearable. They found the falls to ba 'I
much further than thoy had expocted, and on . 3;
