THIRD DEGREE IWSTORY Of [LSIE SiGtL'S MIRDLR Cttrag Sin Saw All Itut Actual Com inissioii of Crime—drew some Details or Death. NEW TORK, June 22.—Baited and intimidated by detectives, threatened with prosecution, and confused by a rapid fire of questions, Chung Sin, one time roommate of Leon Ling, told this afternoon of Elsie Mgel'fl murder. Under the terrific pressure of "the third degree" the little Chinaman ad mitted he had seen the body in Leon Ling's room; that he had touched it while still warm; that he had smelled the drugs and that he had watched Leon Ling's preparations for placing the body in the trunk where it was found decomposed last Friday night. Chung Sin, it was learned, at the Criminal eou:ts disclosed almost ev erything concerning the murder ex cept the, actual commission of the crime. He denied any complicity in it and protested stoutly that he Is ig norant of the whereabouts of Ling, the supposed murderer. He was held in $10,000 bonds to await an Inquest, It was not until he had undergone the ordeal for a long time that Chung's spirit was sufficiently broken or sufficient inducements were ottered for him lo cast aside the air of of stolidness and tell of the death of the young missionary. The Chinaman then with brutal bluntneas told of the girl's death to Assistant District Attor ney Ward and District Attorney Jerome. Prom what can be learned it wus Jerome himself who finally drew the story from Chung's lips. From his story it is apparent that ESlSte was first drugged with chloro form anil then choked to death. She was kilhd apparently on the night of Juno a, although Chung appeared a little mixed on his dates. He says early on the morning of June lo he heard a strange noise in Leon's room and, looking over the transom, saw the girl lying on a bed with a blood stained towel over her mouth. He passed through the room on his way to go and wash and as he did so he placed his hand on the girl's body, which was still warm. Leon In the meantime had covered the girl's body with a blanket up to the chin and had pulled a trunk to the middle of tile Hour. Chung said he went downstairs, where he was when Leon called him. When he entered the room the body was not visible having been bound with a rope and placed in the trunk Chung denied rendering any assist ance in placing the body in the trunk "When I asked Leon." he continued, "how she died he said she had bitten her tongue and bled to death." Leon told him. Chung added .that he was going to send the trunk to Jersey City and thence to Europe. As a mat ter of fact it lay in the stuffy little room lintil Sun Leung noticed the odor and summoned the police. Despite repeated interrogations Chung Sin declined to say just what happened in the room when the girl was murdered. He did say that Elsie went there alone and that Leon did not take her there. He did not answer the question whether she was in love with Leon or Leon with her, but he indicated, however, that the girl had sought the Chinaman. Incidentally during the examination IKE BUREAU DRAWER is not a secure place in which to deposit your savings. Your money there is not safe from loss by fire or theft, nor is it al ways safe fn.m yourself. That is. you are more likely to yield to the temptation to spend money foolishly when your money is too easy to ijet at. It i« much wiser to open a hank account and deposit your surplus money where it will be absolutely safe. There is an other strong point in favor of the bank in the case of the bureau drawer VS. THE BANK j and that is the interest which your money on deposit will earn. The First Natonal Bank pay 4 per cent compound interest on | savings accounts.
