As matters stand now tho improve-1 ment of both streets will be ordered carried out at once, unless 51 per cent of the property frontage on the streets affected is shown to be against the project. On Cedar street there will be littlt or no opposition, as far as can be learn ed, and that project should be carried out without a hitch, From what can be learned, the Mes quite street project will also be carried out, aB there will be a majority of tho property frontage in favor of the plan, unless there is some change in the foci ings of thoso interested in the project today. The opposition to this movement will be headed by J. Watt Hogue, who has been against the grading of Mesquitoj street from the stnrt. Hogue' stated last night that while there was a majority of the property frontago involved in favor of the grad ing, that an injunction to stop the work would probably bo filed if tho council ordered the work done. lie based th's assumption on the ground that the grading of the street would allow surface water from the hill to run down Mesquite ntrect, with a possibility of damaging propel ty near Broad street, on that thoroughfare. According to the city attorney, the council has no option in this matter, if a majority of tho property frontag? involved is in favor of the grading of the street, but must at once order th? work to be carried out. The property owners bear the expense, with the ex ception of tho grading of the street intersections, w" ion is paid for out of tho street funl. As a numbor of other matters aro scheduled to come before the council tonight, it is probable that a busy fees sion will be tho result. UTILE PROGRESS IS IDE IK FINDING MANY CHINESE EXAMINED WITH LITTLE RESULT IN CASE OF ELSIE SIGEL CHUNG SIN HELD AS WITNESS DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE RE- TICENT ABOUT GIVING OUT DETAILS NEW YORK, Juno 23. After a day of conflicting statements, the district at torney's office, acting under instruc tions from Jerome and Polico Commis sioner Bingham, refused tonight to dis cuss further what progress had been mado in the search for Leon Ling, the Chinese wanted for -the murder of Elsie Sigel. Neither would they disclose tho re sults from tho examination of Chnng Bin, Leon Ling's former roommate, who has'been variously reported to havo wit nessed the crime, to havo aided in rop ing the trunk, and finally merely to havo seen th girl's body. " There hava boon hourly reports of clows irom all parts of tho country, but nonebrTngs tho authorities any nearer to the murderer. Wlmtprpgrcss has boen made with Chung Sin, who underwent this after noon another four hours of cross ques tioning, was duo to Quon Yick Nam, a Chinese merchant, who acted as inter preter. It is said ho told Chung Sin 1 R that no Chinese society would aid him in suppressing the facts or in conceal ing Leon Ling; that every Chinese in fluence in tho country felt that tho case was bringing disrepute on thoir race, ;uid they all were united in their efforts to run down the murderer. With more to gain than to lose by the truth, Chung Sin then talked freely, if not frankly. That ho has not boon actually implicated in tho crime itself, however, is indicated by tho fact that tonight he wasv held in the house of detention for a witness and not in the Tombs. Whatever may bo the whole truth of the information yielded by Chung Sin, it contains only a clew on which tho police can work, as Chun Gain, nn admirer of the girls, of whom Lron Ling was jealous, Sun Lcong, pro prietor of the restaurant over which the murder was committed and other Chinese nrrestcd, are out on bill, pump ed dry.

LUlEii SCHEDULE CLEAB DP BY S I IE - C FINANCE COMM -A 5E SCORES AN-,f OTHER -jVTOI 21 ' IN DUTY ' ON WOd OODS PINEAPPLES HAVE"' ATTENTION COAL SCHEDULE UNEXPECTEDLY PASSED WITHOUT MARKED OPPOSITION WASHINGTON, June 23. In'unex--v'tedly short order the senate today, 'nosed of the lumber schcdulo and then agreed upon the rates of duty on pineapples. Aldrich' asked that the lumber sched ule receive first uttention. Ho had no sooner taken his scat than Senator Me Cumber, who has been a persistent ad vocate of free lumber, presented an amendment reducing the finance com mittee rates of $1.50 per 1,000 feet on sawed lumber, to "the house rate of $1 per 1,000 feet. This was generally recognized, as a test proposition, as sawed lumber has been the bone of contention from the beginning. The result was against him and was another triumph for tho Aldrich rates, the vote standing 21 for and 44 against the hous rates. Another test came on the proposition to mako the rate $1.25 per thousand on lumber, with general change of differen tials, and on this vote tho finance com mittee was also liberally supported. Entire Schcdulo Adopted The cntiro wood schedule, making re ductions of about 25 per cent from tho present rates and increasing tho house rates of tho pending bill to about the samo extent, was then adopted. The house fixed a duty of S cents per cubic foot on pineapples in barrels and $8 per 1,000, but tho senate finance coinr mittee reduced this rate to 7 cents and $7 respectively, thus restoring tbo pro visions of the Dirgley law. Taliaferro of Florida, presented an amendment restoring tho house rato, but changing other portions of tho sched ules so as to require tho payment of half a cent per pound on pineapples in bulk. Smith and Rayner, of Maryland, in whoso state there aro largo pineapple canning establishments, mado a strenu ons fight against an increase of duty. Rayner charged tho republican party with bad faith in promising lower tar iff duties. After a debate lasting about four hours, tho Taliafero amendment was adopted by 31 to 30. This was a de feat for the finance committee, and sev eral of its members voted for it. Coal Schedule Easy It had been expected the coal sched ule would bo debated at great length, but it was passed after little moro than an hour's discussion. A new schedule was presented by Aldrich, chairman of tho finance com mittee, reducing the houso rate on bit uminous coal from 67 cents per ton, to GO cents and eliminating the house reciprocity clause. WOOD PULP AMENDMENT ". WASHINGTON, D. C, June 23. An amendment on the subject of wood pulp, was introduced in the senate today by Aldrich.
