They are the beginning of a system of perse cution peculiar to tlie Chinese, and which Long lias good reason to fear may soon end in death. Indeed, the Lee Yup Company of Highbinders, having a branch in Phila delphia, have notified Long that un less lie chooses to charge the union rate for washing he may ex Long has resisted the pres peit to die. sure for a long time, but it begins to look now as if he would have to give in. There is a difference of just four cents between Long and life, for he lias cut down the price of washing sliirfs from 12 cents to 8, and there is where the trouble started. degreeof clearness and fluency. There are times in every Chinaman's life when he forgets his English, if lie knows any, and occasionally even lie forgets his Chinese, and sometimes his own name. These times have now come to Charlie Long. Lung bus been hounded, his goods have been stolen, his books have been muti luted, and he has been the victim of a thousand petty and serious annoyances, Not long ago, a customer entered Long s place and tendered him a check. Chinese laundry cheeks, by tlie way, are stubs torn from books in which tlie remaining portions of hieroglyphics must correspond to the checks. Turning to the book lie found the stub gone. Here was work which none but a Chinaman could have done.

I About 0.30 o'clock last night a man entered the shoe store of F. 8 . Hoopes, No. 7 Past Third street, ami asked to be ' shown a pair of siioes. He was waited upon by the clerk who was alone in tlie More, and was finally suited.

Being una ble to make change from the cash drawet . tbe c i erk WB s compelled to try and get it cashed in the neighborhood, Not liking to i eave tlie stranger alone in the store, he asked him to wait outside and gbut au d locked the door, leaving tlie shoes on tlie wrapping counter. Several ineffectual atttempts were made to casli the check and finally the salesman came back to report his non to his customer. He counted success without his host, however, for tlie cus tomer had disappeared and left no trace. Thinking that tlie check might prove bogus the matter was reported at police headquarters, together with a description of the man. The supposed swindler is •> feet in height, slender in build, and wore a sandy moustache. He was very shab bily and carelessly dressed, his stockings hangings over his shoe tops. His hat was a slouch that had seen wear, and the shoes which lie had attempted to pur chase were No. 11'*. Tlie authorities say that as tlie man did not secure the shoes, and as the check lias not been proved bogus, there would be no real ground for his arrest even if they lc cated him. K. of P.

West Chester's Choicest Scandal Stirred Afresh. jMRS HILLS ADMITS HER GUILT Writes That She is Never Coming Back to Ainerlba and the Lawsuit May Go to tlie Dickens. (Special to The Sun.) West Chester, Penna., Oct. 28.— Tlie most remarkable scandal in tlie history of West Chesterjis stirred afresh by the receipt of a letter from Mrs. Caro line Pearson Hills, the wife of tlie Rev. G. Heathcote Hills, rector of Holy Trin ity Church of this plaee, in which Mrs. Hills says "I will never return to America and the divorce case may go to tlie dickens." This community was shocked and as tonished about a year and a half ago, when J. Heathcote Hills sent his wife back to her parents, closed iiis home, and brought suit for divorce. Mrs. Hills, the accused wife, is the daughter of Isaac S. Pearson, a millionaire life insur ance president of Newark, N, J., and the wedding of the young couple, which had occurred but three years before, was one of the most brilliant social events of the season. As remarkable as tlie bringing of the suit itself were the charges it contained. The rector accused his wife of unlawful intimacy with Howard Garrett, then a boy of seventeen, and a member of Holy Trinity choir, who is nowin Chicago, a boy named Abram Huey, and with Adam Bechtel, formerly a theological student' who is now in Paris. Mrs. Hills, in her letter, denies these charges, so far as tlie boys Garrett and Huey are concerned, but frankly admits her intimacy witn Bechtel, who was a member of the Hills'household. Mrs. Hills asserts that her husband was en tirely cognizant of her relations with Bechtel and, in fact, countenanced and encouraged her in theta for a period of two years. In her letters, Mrs. Hills states that she has gone on the stage in Paris and lias met with great success. Tlie Betting in Now York, „.

Slept in Cara, in Sand Hills, in Mud, Traveled on Freight Trains And Lost Her Way ward Life. (Special to The Sux. ) Chesteii, Pa., Oct, 2S.— 1 The greatest excitement lias prevailed here all day over tlie extraordinary incident of last night—the finding of the body of a dead on the track near St. David's woman tower, west of Philadelphia. All day long crowds beseiged the Coroner's office anxious for a glimpse of tlie remains of the woman, the romance of whose deatli had created such a sensa tion. But this was denied, as tlie Cor oner appeared to realized that tlie curi osity was chiefly morbid and not likely to lead to identification. This evening, the dead girl's sister, Irene, came to Chester and identified tlie remains as positively those of Annie Spence, whose parents live in York, Pa., and who, until three months ago, was living in Lancaster, the housekeeper of there whose name could not be a man learned. Irene Spence, after the identi fication, departed for Philadelphia, leav ing word that she would communicate from there with her parents as to what disposition they desired made of tlie re mains. About three months ago the man in whose home Annie resided disappeared, and since then she lias been roaming from place to place, apparently in search of him. The extent of her travels and the hardships she endured with apparent indifference, makes the story one of tlie most remarkable ever heard. It seemed, according to the diary found upon her person, that she was content to sleep in box cars, in sand holes, or spend the night in the woods. Contrary to tlie first report, the re mains were dreadfully mutilated, the body being cut and hacked, the face and skull crushed, and the right arm severed. An inquest will be held in a day or two, but there is no suspicion of foul play. Everything indicates that Annie Spence fell from tlie bumpers of a freight train, on which she was stealing a ride, and was crushed to dentil. Lattimer shooting. The true bills in eluded nineteen for murder, one for each man killed and one for the victims col lectively. Thirty-six true bills were found in the same way against the same defendants for felonious wounding. It is understood from this fact that the de fendants can have separate trials or can elect to be tried together, Tlie fact that true bills have ix-en found occasions no surprise, for this ac tion was expected, and if the jury lmd ignored the bills the defendants would have been at once rearrested. The gen eral feeling here is that the case should he finally disposed of by regular trial, and it ia likely that Sheriff Martin and hig de p Ut j eg wi u elect to stand together.
