GIVEN TERRIBLE GRILLING Wonltt Not Confess until He Was In timidated by Officers The fllrl Win nriiftarcd vttih ( 'hloroform nnd Then Clinked (o Ill-nth Denies Complicity. New Vork, June 22 nullled and Intim idated by detectives, threatened with prosecution and confused with rapid lire questions, Chung Sin, one time, room- I m,e "f I-"on Urns, told this afternoon "f Klste HIkoI's murder. Under the ter- rim pressure or the "tliim decree, mo Chlnamnn admitted that Me had "ren the body In I.eon Ilnu's room over tho Ktehth avenue chop suey restaurant, thnt he had touched It while It was still I warm, that he had smelted drugs and had watched I.eon Uuk's preparations for placlnu the body In the trunk where I It was found horribly decomposed on I I'rlday nlsht last. I ChutiK Sin In fnct, If what was learn ed at the criminal courts building Is correct, described almost everything conoernlni; the murder of Major General Krnnz Steers crnnddaUKhter except the nctunl commission of thn crime. He den led any Implication In It nnd protested stojtly that he was Ignorant of the whereabouts of T.eon I.lng, the suppos ed murderer, nut nfter the Inquisition ho was tnken before Coroner Ilnrhttrger and held In SlO.Oft) ball In the house of de tention to await the Inquest. Chung Sin Is 35 years old and a na tive of Canton. He was arrested yester- niy morning at West n.ilway. N. Y , a pmall hamlet near Amsterdam and as which hns aroused the whole country. Then, smoking cigarette nfter cigarette to quiet his nerves, the Chlnnmnn told brokenly but with brutal bluntness of tho girl's death. He was surrounded nt the time in tho ofllce of Assistant District Attorney j i ueonore ii. warn ny ncieciivea irom headquarters who had previously put him through a grilling. Mr. Ward nnd District Attorney Jerome nlso wero pres ent nnd from what can be learned It was Mr. Jerome himself who finally drew the story from Chung Sin's Hps. lie was told that Ieon Ling had been cap tut ed and had laid the blnme upon his (Chung Sin's) shoulders. This, together with the persistent hammering nt the prisoner, brougrft tho confession. It was mnde partly In English nnd pnrtly In Chinese, for there was an Interpreter present, nnd was tnken down by stenog raphers. Nn statement of the gist was made public but the more salient facti of the confession soon became known about the building. HHARD STRANGH NOISE. From the man's story It Is apparent that Hlsie Slgel was rlrst drugged with chloroform and then choked to death. She was killed apparently on the night of June 0, although Chung Sin appeared a little mixed in his dates. Hut he says that early in the morning of June 10 he heard a strange noiso In Leon's room adjoining his, and, looking over the transom, saw the girl lying nn the bed with a bloody towel over her mouth. He passed through the room, he says to go out to wash his hands, and as he did so felt of the body -which was still warm. Afterwards went down to the chop suey testaurant below, then returned tn the room. Leon In the meantime had covered the bodv with a blanket up to tho chin nnd had pulled a trunk to the middle of the floor. This trunk Leon wns calmly emptying preparatory to placing the body thrTcln. The rope with which the body was bound was lying on the floor at th time, according to Chung Sin. Once again he went downstairs, said Chung Sin, where he remained until Leon called him. When he entered the room the body was not visible, having been bound with the rope nnd placed in the trunk. At this point of thn story, tho Chinaman wns asked savagely If he had not nsslsteil his. pal In putting the body In the trunk. Chung fllnp: started perceptibly, but said that ho had had no hand In It. CLAIMED SHE HLED TO DEATH. "I did not sen her no more." said Chunt; Sin, "and when I asked Leon how sho died he snld she had bitten her tongue nnd bled to death." Leon told him, Chung Sin added, that he was golnjr to send the trunk to Jer sey City, thence to Europe. As a mat ter of fact It lay untouched In the stuffy littlo room until Sun Leung, proprietor of thn restaurant below, noticed tho odor about tho building nnd summoned tho police. 1'ntll Chuns Sln'n completo account Is made public It will not be explained why ho snw the dend girl nnd the pre paratlons for tho removal of tho body with such apparent unconcern at tho time. Desplto repeated Interrogations ho declined to say Just what happened In the room when tho Kill was mur dered, Ho admitted having heard n scuffle In tho room durltiK the night nnd told of Elslu having nrrlved on tho previous afternoon, the day -f-hen she disappeared from her home. WENT TO THE ROOM ALONE. "Did Leon take her there or did she go of her own accord?" hn was a.kml. "Sho -went thero alone," he replied, ''Was sho In lovo with Leon or lAon In love with hnr? At this Chung Sin only smiled nnd shook his bend. He Indlcnted, how eer, thnt the girl had sought out the Chinaman.

Paris, June 22. Tho report of the pnrllamentary commission which In vestigated the naval scandals in France has been turned In. It Is a scathing condemnation of tho naval administration for the past 10 years, and It makes astounding exposure of the deplorable condition of the fleet for which France 1 ns spent IWWO.OOO since !':. Tho 350 pages of the report are filled wtth details of tho inefficiency resulting from confusion and red tar, conditions that make the French navy cost more than tho English or German. As nn evidence of these methods It Is pointed out that cast Iron shull of large cnllbro were condemned nfter tho Occident to the battleship Iona, continued to be manufactured In larg er quantities than ever for two whole years. The Patrle, the Republlque nnd other ships of this cI.ts were found equipped with secondary rc'ins of a model of R S 5 instead of 1902. m the specllcntlous required. Neither tho ammunition nor the (runs for the sit ships of the Pnntnn type, to be com pleted in 1311, will be ready before 1911, anil Franco hns not a single dry dock capable of neoommortatlnR these vessels whon they nro finished. Perhnps the gtnveit fenture of the ex posure Is the lnck of reserve coal and ammunition supplies at the vnrlnus potts nnd nrsennls. One officer testified before tho commission thnt at tho end of a naval bnttlo of six hours the ships would find It Impossible to replenish and would be virtually out of commission. The commission recommrnds the com pleto re-organlintlnti of the depnrtmont, the elimination of red tape; nnd the dis tribution of responsibility. 1JSK.FIII., IM'T NOT FI'ISV.
