OFFICERS KEEPING QUIET ItrfiiKc to Mnkr Public the Result of Their InvcstlRntlons further l:nliiliintlon of Clmn Sin In tlleatr, Tbnt He I" Not Implicated In Crime. New York, June 23 After n day of conflicting statements, the district at torney's office, acting under Instructions from Mr. Jerome and the police de partment, under orders from Commis sioner Hlngham, refused to-night to dis cuss further what progress has been mnde In tho search for Ieon Ling, the Chlnamnn who Is wanted for the mur der of Elsie Slgel, whose body was found In a trunk In a room over nn Eighth avenue chop suoy restaurant last Friday night. Nor would they discuss the results of the examination of Chung Sin, I.eon I.lng's former roommate, who has been variously reported to have wit nessed the crime, to haw aided In rop ing tho trunk, and finally merely to have seen the girl's body. There have been hourly reports of clues from all parts of the country, but none of them, on close examination, brings the nuthnrl ties and nearer to the murderer. What progress hns been made with Chung Sin. who underwent this after noon another four hours of rross-nues- tlonlng at the hands of Captain Carey nnd hl's men of the homicide bureau nnd Mr. Ward of the district attorney's office, Is due as much oa anything to the offices of Quon Tick Nam. a Chinese merchant who volunteered as an Interpreter and In whom th police have every confl- dence. It Is sold that ho told Chung Sin, with an earnestness that carried convic tion, that no Chinese society would atd him In suppressing the facts or In con cealing I.eon Ling; thnt. cn the contrary, every Chlnnman of Influence and respon sibility In tho country felt that the case KNOW was hrlnglng disrepute on their race felt O0 nntlnnnl bank note on the Oer and they were all united with the police t mania Natlonnl bank of San Francisco In efforts to run down the murderer, j has been discovered, according to Chief With more to gain than to lose by the wilkte of the ercrl service. The note Is truth, Chung Sin then talked freely If 1 n straight photographic counterfeit In not frankly, but that he hns not been actually Implicated In the crime Itself s Indicated by the fact that to-nleht he still held In the house of detention for yields. It Is practically all the police to havo to go on. Chu Gain, the res taurant proprietor and admirer of the girl of whom Leon Llnar was Jealous.

Thus tho case revolves around Chung Sin, at first thought to have told so much, but whne alleged con fession became far less sensational upon further Investigations. CIH'NG SIN"S A.M ENDED STORY. To all questions be rplnterates that he occupied the room next to that of Leon, nnd that on the afternoon or June 9th. the day of the murder, he wakened after a natural sleep to find Leon stnndlng beside him. Ixion wan In trouble and wanted help. Chung Sin soon understood why when he saw the body 'ylng across the bed. There was blood on a stained handkerchief which was stuffed between the lips. The features, ho ald, were strained and blackened, but he saw no rope around the neck, Leon explained to him thnt the girl bit her tonrfti" and bled to death.

BELIEVE THE GIRL SINCERE. Those who knew Elsie Slgel best be lieve that she was sincere In her mission work and her relations with the ChlnoBe up to tho day of her death, Mrs. Flor ence Todd of tho Rowory settlement, has never varied from her assertion nf that belief. Chu Gain, who lived In terror of his Jealous rival, Leon Ling, and had known both the girl nnd her mother for years. Is of tho same belief, Assistant District Attorney Wnrd Is inclined to the theory of Quon Ylck Nam, the In terpreter, who thinks that the girl was lured to Leon's room by a report of his feigned Illness and there chloroformed, after Irfon nnd been nn leered by her cold ness nnd her refusal to see no more of Chu Gain, his wealthier rival. The chloroform, Quon Ik'lteves, worked to well, and when Leon found he eould not revive Klsle, he bound her with a cord and wedged tho body Into the trunk. In support of this theory Is tho pathetic and moving prayer written on a mission letter head which the girl left for her moth er on the day she went to her death, It seems Impossible, It Is argued, that a lrl going on any but a righteous mission could havo written such note. Captain Carey tn-dav paid another visit to the room where the body lay and found fishes In the stove, wlti'h may account for th" missing skirt and waist nnd the missing handker chief which ChttnK Sin says he saw between tho Kill's teeth. WAS IN SCHENECTADY. iillec Convinced Elsie SljrcPs .Murderer Mod P.jr Treated There, Schenectady. N. V., June 2.1 Thnt I.eon l.lng, the alleged murderer of Elsie Plgrl, wns hlddf.n in Schenectady after the crlmo wns committed Is now be lieved by the local police to be a well established fact. There have been many facts which point to this conclusion, hut thn most Important reached tho ears of the chief of police only to-night and camo from C. K. Proles, an optician. Dr. Probes declares he Is absolutely certain he wns visited on June H by I.eon Hlng. A Chinamen dressed In American clothes camo to his office on that day suffering from an Inflammed left eye for which he wanted smoked glasses. Tho Injury was so severe he was advised to visit Dr. J. J. O'Hrlcn. Tie Avns given his glnsses, tendering a bill In payment and not waiting for change. Dr. Probes's story Is borne out bv Dr. O'Hrlen who a short time later examined tho Chinaman's eyes. The Chlnamnn, when asked by Dr. O'Hrlen how he Injured his eye, replied "I got cinder In It." Thn physician savs that If such Inflammation had been caused by a cinder a scratch would have shown on the eyeball. He snys that such an In Jury Is most frequently caused by a per son "sticking their finger In their eye." Dr. O'Hrlen nlso declares that the ap pearance of the celestial who visited htm was Identical with pictures of Leon Ding. Ho now thinks the man wns Injured dur- j ing a struggle with Elsie Slgel. 1 Tito local pottae neueve mat i.ing was In hiding In Schenectady for some time a day or two after the murder until Inst aamroay.
