FIGURED IN CHINESE ROMANCE.
Americus Man Befriends an Atlanta
Celestial-
The recent prominence attained by
an Atlanta Chinaman, Lum Ling, has
caused Capt. John A. Cobb, of Amer
icus, to recall him as an acquaintance
whom he once befriended when con
nected with the Internal Revenue
service three or four years ago. Ling
wanted to go back to Pekin to wed his
wife, now with him in Atlanta, and
Capt. Cobb arranged all the papers
necessary for his return to this land of
Hanna and Trusts. Ling was deeply
grateful, and upon his return from
China brought Capt. Cobb a sword
and other mementoes, including his
photograph, with autograph beneath.
The autograph looks like a tangled
handful of earth worms, but Capt.
Cobb declares the inscription was made
by Lum, and accordingly prizes it very
highly.

For Onslaught Upon Feathered Tribe
Shortly.
Americus sportsmen are pleased to
learn that the “dove crop” has not
been cat short either by drought or
excessive rains, and are eagerly wait
ing the coming of the 15 th. in st., when
the shooting season begins. Accord
ing to the acts of 1893 and 1895, which
are as yet unrepealed, it is unlawful to
capture or to destroy in any way any
wild turkey, pheasant, snipe or par
tridge between the first days of April
and Noyember; nor is it lawful to cap
ture or to destroy in any way any wild
dove between the first day of April
and the fifteenth of August. It is also
a violation of the law to shoot doves
in a baited field, as has been done here
in years past.
MEETING PLACE LOCATED.
One of the Conspirators Is Said to
Be a Woman.
New York, Aug. 3.—Detectives have
found the room in which it is claimed
that the plot to kill King Humbert was
formed. It is on the second floor of a
West Hoboken, N. J., resort for an
archists, and is in the heart of the Ital
ian settlement. The place has not been
known as a meeting place for anarchists.
There have been no public meetings
held there, and the room where the men
met was kept for the more secret confer
ences. The detectives say they learned
from Socialists who attended a meeting
at the place that less than four months
ago two Italians, a man and woman, ar
rived in Hoboken and an important con
ference was held in this room-. It is said
Bresci was at this conference.
The police have also learned that
Bresci was tendered a banquet just prior
to his leaving this country, at which
eight persons were present, three of
whom—Salvatore Quintavello and a
man named Sassi and a man named Len
ner or Lanier—who are now under ar
rest in Italy. The others are not yet
known to the police, but most of them
are soon likely to be discovered. One is
said to have been a woman.
