(Continued from First Pace.) 1 <J? not think the words were used." Asked why Wan. upon his arrival from New York with Detective Sergts. Ouy E. Burlingrame and Edward J. *?"* w" 5*ken to the clinic of the Public Health .Service, at 409 Fif teenth street northwest. Major Pull man said it was "because of the pri vacy it afforded." *?"iWan~wa* not * Prisoner." said Major Pullman, "and he had been promised fair treatment If he returned to Washington to help clear up the triple murder. There was no occasion for us to lock him up at thai time, and we desired to ke?p him away rrom the curious and others who had business in the District building, I.aat His at Hr "Why did you send to New Torkk for Wan?" "Well, when we learned that he wa?' the last man seen alive in the mis- i slon house, we felt he would be val uable to us in helping clear up th<> mysterious deaths. That's practically the only reason, cxcept we knew he had been a friend of the s)4in Chinese j mission members, and thought he1 would be anxious to feitet out the guilty parties." "Did you give orders that Wan wa= to be guarded by policemen while he was a guest at the Dewey HoteiT* "Yes, three policemen we%re alter nately stationed at his room." "Why?" "We had p -omlsed to care for Wan. and for that reason had the police men on hand should he want them." "Did you permit Wan to take any exercise?" "He never asked for any. It would have been perfectly safe to give him exercise should be hsve desired it." Did Kst Catechise ?aa. "Did you ask if he believed in God?' "So. I don't recall asking that question. I did not see any occasion for asking hi mthat question as he had told me he had attended t John's College, at Shanghai, China, which Is under the auspices of -the Eplsetvpal church. He told me he was a Chris tian. All through the crogs-examination. which probably -/ill continue over to tomorrow. Major Pullman retained an even poise an/ seemed not the least ruffled by the forcible manner in which Attorney O'Shea fired questions at him. /e cooly replied in an even tone, to the amusement of many. Attorney O'Shea placed great stresr on the fact that Tsong Ing Van. brother of Wan. was confined at thr Dewey Hotel, and that neither was permitted to see the other until six months after their arrival from New York. "What was your reason for not permitting the zrothcrs to see each other," asked O'Shea. Feared Cklsese Trick. "We did not know the Chinese lan guage. and thought that if they knew anything about the crimc that they night try to cover It up." said lialor Pullman. "We also felt we could make more progress in investigating the case by keeping the brothers separated for a "When Wan was taken to the mis sion house, was he not showed photo graphs taken of Ihe bodies of the slaim mission members?" "Yes, he asked to see them. Wan was anxious to know all the details of the shooting. He did most of the questioning, particularly a sto where the pistol was found." Shown Blood Stains. "Did you show him blood stains and blood-smeared finger prints?" 't don't recall, but maybe they were shown to him." "Was not the murder re-enacted to Wan for the purpose of petting him to confess? Were not the photographs of the bodies and tho blood stainr showed him at the same time, in an effort to obtain a confession of guili from him?" "No. we did not at any time do any thing to get an involuntary statement from Wan." Hid LI In Closet, "At what vantage point was Kang Ui when you were questioning the brothers In the mission house?" "I believe Lo was in a closet, or nn alcove?I don't remember exactly. He I .va* put there to Interpret any Chinese that the brothers spoke relative to he crime." Attorney O'Shea apparently at tempted to bring out that the police had secreted Li in the closet for the purpose of spying on the brothers should they make any Incriminating statement. Major Pullman, however denied that the brothers had spoken In Chinese, at least In his presence. Grant Denied "Third Degree." With the admission to the record by Justice Gould of incriminating statements alleged to have been m-tdo to. Inspector Clifford L. Grant, chief of detectives, by Wan, the Govern ment today believes It has practically clinched Its case against the Chinese student. Following a grueling cross-exam ination at the hands of Attorney O'Shea, Inspector Grant left \,the witness stand at 3 6'clo^k yesterday afternoon after explaining in detail the circumstances which ltd to the altered admissions made by Wan. He ...-scried that at no time were prom ises, inducements, or force used In setting "confessions" from the sus pected Chinese student. The prpsecution believes It ha* shattered all attemp.s of Attorney O'Shea to show that Wan was sub jected to cruel and Inhuman treat ment In the obtaining of tbe "confes sions" from Wan. Grant corroborated in almost every detail the testimony of Lieut. Guy E. Burltngame. In his testimony yesterday In spector Grant declared that Wan told conflicting statements from the moment he was taken Into custody, telling Detectives Bur lingame and Kelly In New York that he Ifcft Washington on January 27. A few minutes later, when con fronted by Kang LI, Chinese medical student at the George Washington University, who saw him at the mis sion house on Januarys 20, the night of the tragedy, and who two days later discovered the triple killing. Wan admitted he left on January 20, Inspector Grant stated. Cwtsla of His GalH. Grant admitted that during the seven d^ys of Wan's confinement at the- Dewey Hotel, he was petted and well fed; tftat his sympathi?sa^srere played upon. In an effort to get him to confess to the triple killing, of which the police suspected him by reason of his many conflicting state ments. "We were certain of his guilt after five days tt>f investigation," declared Grant, "despite his protestations of Innocence. The finger of guilt point ed to Jilin, and we told him things looked black for him. We urged h m to tell the truth?and he finally ad mitted shooting Wd, although deny ing the slaying of Dr. Wong and Hsie, the other two members of the educa tional mission." Reciting hqw Wan, after live days' confinement, as a "guest of tbe Wash ington police department," at the Dewey Hotel, made his first incrimi nating statement. Grant said: "He was told to leave out the kill ing of the mission members?and tell us about the $8,000 check, containing the forged signature of Dr. Wong, which was presented to the Riggs National Bank. Wan, after a mo ment's thought, said: Tou find man who took check to bank, and you find murderer.'" Castkt l'f Cfccek. "Tsong Ing Van, the 'defendant's brother," continued Grant, "an bour before told me he had taken the oheck to the ba^k. So, I said to Wan: J* i " 'We know who took the check to the bank?your brother Van!' Wan then became furious. He cried 'It's a lie?it's a lie,' at the same time banging violently on a table with his clenched fist. 'I say no more.'" Grant then- told of having taken the brothers to the mission house the next day; of the comparison of Wan's signature with tbe forged name of Dr. Wong on the stub of the official check book of the educational mission. "Major Pullman," testified Grant, "sbowed the signatures to Wan, pointing out the similar character istics of the letters in his name wiih those In the forged signature of Dir. Wong. " 'Is that your writing?" asked Major Pullman, as he pointed to the forged signature of Dr. Wong. Admit* Slgaatare Is His. " kI believe it Is,' Wan answered. "Major Pullman told him he did not vant to know what he believed, but whether it was bis writing. Wan lowered his head, then declared "Yes, t's my writing.' "Wan had been told that his brother. Van, had been identified as having >resented the forged check to .the rtlggs Bank, .and that both brothers had been Identified by the chauffeur f a hacking automobile as having been driven to the bank on the day following the killing of the mission nembers. He apparently realised that vtdeno: of a circumstantial nature was piling up against htm. "But we questioned him no more then at the mission house. He was taken to the Tenth precinct police station. It was here that I told Wan that 'things look black for you?tell ?is the truth. Did you kill the mem bers of the mission? Did ?ou see the members killed.' "Wan broke finally, declaring that ho witnessed the triple crime, but had no hand In it. He told of being in the mission house with a Chinese named Chen, whom he said saw Wu shoot and kill Dr. Wong and Hsie, and then, angered, shot Wu. Chen then escaped.
