IS IDEHTIFIED IS
Woman Says She Recognized
Chin Sing Clearly; Tong
Special to The Tribune
Butte, Oct. 20.—Another piece of
evidence in connection with the myste
rious murder of Chong Sing, in front of
his place of business at 222 South Wy
oming street last Thursday night, was
secured when a woman, who claims to
have heard the shooting and who ran
to her front door, appeared at the po
lice station and identified Chin Sing
as the man she had seen running away
from the scene of the shooting. ('Iiin
was found under a doorstep a few
doors from the woman's home in the
The woman, whose name is with
held by the police, declared she had
known Chin for several weeks and was
positive of his identity. When the
young Chinese, who appears not more
than 25 years of age, was seen by the
woman at the police station she said:
"That is the right man. I saw his
face clearly when he ran past me."
According to special investigators
working on the case, Chong was killed
because he refused to become a mem
ber of one tong and because he was
organizing a local branch of the Beng
Ivong tong, said to be the most power
ful Chinese tong in the world.
On the night of the murder several
of Chong's kinsmen declared him to be
the victim of a tong war, brought on
by the dead man's opposition to the
ruling order. One of Chong's relatives
declared organizers of the Hop Sing
faction had approached Chong to se
cure his membership. Chong not only
refused, but set about organizing the
Beng Kong tong.

Plead Guilty of Bootlegging to
Get Off Easy; Facing
Revenue Seizure Now.
Special to The Tribune
Butte, Oct. 20.—Whisky at $2,800 a
gallon sounds unbelievably high, but
that is the rate that one Butte citizen
is called on to pay for four quarts of
the beverage. The liquor is not of a
fine quality. It was not "bottled in
bond," nor was it imported. It was
Iproduced in this country and is pro
nounced to be an ordinary quality of
moonshine. The citizen who is paying
this record price is not possessed of
unlimited means, has no reputation as
a connoistur, and probably doesn't
drink. The person who will pay this
fabulous price is a woman, and a widow
at that, with four small children and no
means. Her name is Mrs. Murray.
The collector, who is after the price,
is the United States department of in
Did It for Children
A f.»w weeks ago Mrs. Murray was
arrested on a charge of liquor viola
tion. There were a number of counts
against her, but on account of her lack
of means and her dependent children,
the county authorities agreed to accept
her plea of guilty to one count in the
information, that of having liquor ille
gally in her possession, and to dismiss
The attorney who appeared for her
told the court that he had waived his
fee on account of his client's poverty.
The judge imposed a fine for a small
amount, which was paid and the peni
tent widow left the courtroom, sadden
ed but glad that it had been no worse.
But the plea of guilty and the fine
did not end matters. The federal gov
ernment was still to be reckoned with.
The internal revenue collectors have
notified Mrs. Murray that there is a
little matter of $2,800 to be settled,
taxes and penalties for her gallon of
moonshine whisky, to the possession
of which she had pleaded guilty. She
is possessed of a little home, valued at
$1,400, on which $0<M) is still due. The
internal revenue men have notified her,
she is quoted as stating, that the
property would be liened against.
She sought th* advice of the offi
cials at the courthouse, who were un
able to help her. "As I see it," said
one official, "the only thing she can do
to save her place is to petition the
president. If that is not effective the
home will have to go."
