I HORRIBLE CRIME IN NEW YORK I LADY MISSIONARY MURDERED BY A I CHINAMAN. A horrfblo crime was discovered in N«* York on Saturday, in which an American I of good family had been murdered by a Chinaman, and her body afterwards paeilvd iuio a trunk and left in a room oy«r a Chinese restaurant on Eighth Avenue. The girl has been identified as Elsie giopl, twenty yoars of age, daughter of Mr. Paul Siegel, who is employed in a city Government office, and granddaughter of the famona Civil War officer, General Fraaz Siegel, The do- tails of the crime arc very horrible, but are rendered more repulsive trom the discovery that Miss Siegel had, apparently, for some time maintained friendly relations with the Chinaman who committed the crime. The polioe hare no doubt that the man who committed the crime is a Chinaman named Leon Ling, who was known in Now York under the name of William L. Leon. He was a "collvertud" Christian, and made tlao acquaintance of Miss Siegel and her mother through the missionary work which the two ladies carried on in this city. The girl had been missing for nearlv a fort- I night, and the police had been searching for her. On Friday night tho keeper of the restaurant, Sun Leung, who ran a lodging- house in connection with it, notified the polic« that a foul odour was coming from the room at the top of the house, which Leon had poliea that a foul odour was coming from the room at the top of the house, which Leon had occupied. He also stated that the door was locked, and that Leon had been missing for about a week. The police broke in tlmdoor, but found no one there. The terrible odour came from a trunk which bad been pushed under tho bed. This they oi>eu«d, ajid found the body of tli4a girl tied with a rope in order to make it pos- sible t-o get it into the .trunk. The body, which was dressed only in underclothing, had a great many bruises, and v, as rapidly decom- posing, handfuls of quicklime having been thrown over the corpse to hasten this process. In the room were Tound quite 2.000 letters, mainly addressed to Leonhy -white women in various parts of the country, and among these letters were ftocaws signed Elsie." One of these, which wa-s addressed Dear Wil- liam," and dated from the home of Elsie's parents, read "You seem to be growing cold towards mo. Just think oT the sacrilice I have mado ['1' you. I have sacrificed my family and frionds. Fox God's sake don't for- sake mo." Other letters from "Miss Siegel to the Chinaman indicated Tier betrayal by him, and this was made evident in a number of other cases of white women whose letters had been left by the Chinaman when .he .flod after the murder. A message from Iww York reports that Leon LinK has beoa arrested at Schenectady.
RELIGIOUS RIOT IN LIVERPOOL. FIFTY TERSOXS ARRESTED. An alarming disturbance 'took plaec in Liverpool on Sunday, arising out of a proces- sion of Roman Catholics attending St. Joseph's Church, through a part of the city in which the Irish predominate. The Orange party a week since were incensed by -some of their party being errt to gnol for smashing the windows of an Irish resident, and they threatened reprisals, which led to bloodshed, and the arrest of some fifty persons. During the week a JOOftlce was issued 'ca'U- ing upon Orangemen to gather in force and prevent any illegal procession taking place, the assumption being that an -attempt would be made to carry the Host through the streets; but this was never intended. It was also asserted bv the Roman :Catholics that a contingent of Orangemen arrived on Satur- day night from Belfast. Iscafly an hour 'be- fore the time fixed for the procession to start, the Orangemen invaded the vicinity of St. Joseph's Church in great farce, and as a consequence it was deemed wise to confine the procession to the immediate neighbour- hood of the church. The Orangemen wore determined to prevent even this if possible, and the two bodies came into collision, bricks, bottles, and othet =if i(ille% :800n flying about. The fight continued for a consider- able time, notwithstanding the presence of IwSfeween 500 and 600 police, mcluding a mounted contingent. T'he persons arrested int'iude both Orangemen and Roman Catho- lies,<.nd, in addition, a number were treated for tait heads and other injuries. I The police assert that many Orangemen carried naked swords beneath their coats, and teandished them in a menacing manner when Sthe two parties came into collision. During the whole evening the distr^t re- mained in a ferment, although the police patrols yrevented any further .omgaiaiBed

EDGWAUE CHILD MURDER. I ACCUSED BEFORE THE MAGISTRATES Tho sequel to the eoafeMioa at Edgware by a young labourer naiaed Frederick Burgess, otherwise West-wood, af Child's Hill, whose age was stated to be twenty, while he was in custody at Willetdea Greeu Police-station on a charge of loitering, t-ook place at the Hen- don District Council offices on Saturday, when the accused was plaeed in the dock be- fore tho loc;U beneh of magistrates charged with the wilful murder, at Edgware, o.

The only witnems called wai Detective-In- speetor who read a statement leading up to the finding of the body, and said that on Friday morning he we-ut to NY, illeiiden Green Police-statiou, where he saw the pri- soner. Witness cautioned him, and said that in consequence of a statement made by him 1 to Sergeant Tritton, they had been to the Edgware brook, and there they had found the body of Annie Lydia Fletcher. In reply the I prisoner said, I choked her with a piece of my muffler. Then I stabbed her. I laid mv eoat under her because the grass wan wet." lso I The prisoner was then charged and made no reply. The body of the girl, added witness, had since been identified by her father. The witness applied for a remand, and mentioned that prisoner was wearing oloihes which had been supplied him by the police. The others I had been kept at the police-^ta'ioa. A remand was granted wntil Frid«y, I
PL AY WEIGHT'S TRAGIC END. An inquest was held on Triday night on the body of Mr. St. John Emile Clavering Hankin, of Campdon, Gloucestershire, the well-known dramatist, whute death has oc- curred under tragic circumstances at Llan- drindod Wells. The evideneo shewed that de- ceased was suffering from aervoua debility, to which the recent loss of hit. mother had contributed. He left a pathetic letter ad- dressed to "his wife. In the l»tter he stated that his intervals of health and cheerfulness ,I were growing less, and that lie did not want to go on living. He had found a lively pool in a river, and at the bottom of it ho hoped in a river, and at the bottom of it ho hoped to find rest. When the body was found it was seen that the deceased had strapped a pair of dumb-bells round his neok. Mrs. Hankin stated that her husband had no trouble at all except that he was depressed in health. "A verdict of suicide while temporarily insane' was returiierl. II Mr. St. John Hankin was born at South-, ampton in 1851), and was educated at Malvern' and Merlon College, Oxford. For a short time he wu a membsr of the r*aff of the; Indian Dally Ntw. Later he worked for the. Tune*, and contributed to Punch, aud several, of the reviews. AH a dramatist he was known a* the author of the plays, The Two Mr. Wstherbys," 1902; Tli; Return of the Pro- digal," produced at the Court in 1905; and The Charity that Began at Home," pro- dueed at the same theatre a year later The Cassilis Engagement," in 1907, and "The Last of the De Mullins in 1908. Mr. Han- ik-iii also tramdsted Les Trois Filles de M. IDcpovit," by Brieux, produoed by tho Stage Society in 1905. Mr. Hankin married the daughter of late George Routladgo, J.P., D.L.

Notes on Games. The cricket season has run nearly half if,v usual course, for not many matches are ph.yed here in September. Although iu this diatrict we have been exceptionally fsroored in tM matter of weather (for it fMft fffiloently being fine here when it was esiaiug over the border), the Bcores, so -far, have not been what might te expected em. fst wicketa in a gcod light. This is Ictjgely attributable to want of practiea caused, in its torn, by slsckne-s. TIiQ uxxt entbosiastic cricketers here now eeeni fai consider an hour or two on Monday eveuiug sufficient practice for a match fivu dsp kter, while two-thirds of the team ,chasm dispense with eren this prepaiation. < The writer can remember the time-now 20 yean ago--when a very difierent state jaf things prevailed. There were then a aatiitocr "f keen cricketers in the town and cteigbbemrhood and the nets were generally Ujttfc on at least three nights a week, some- titueA an fire. The result was that the I "Vale of Ctwyd could tlit-tt hold its own sjeasinafc strong visiting teams, and the I cricket was worthy of oue of the best gttxrada in North Wales. Now-well, ccieapariaons are proverb a'.ly odious. Thoee who are hard driren to find an i«3tcog« for this sad decline in crickfter.«' [ keenneaa put it down to the players spend- ,ing all th, ir spare time at the newly- f fcjemed golf iinkp. This theory implies [ tit«& aooie crick iters would be prepared to [neglect; the ganie for golf, but I fancy that I (base whose prowess with either bat or ball renders fehem of any serrice to their side fwiiL still prefer the mere manly game. IOtfaera, again, have discovered that pliy- teg; gotf is bad for cricket, doubtless on the prioctple that a man should not mix his aBMitCtoes. This may sffotd consolation tu diose who ate out of form, but it is a Citilscy to suppose that playing one game uufils a man for another. Any excuse, bowtver, is acceptable with some. r The golfers, whether they happen to b. .cricketers who Lave forsaken their first -tom oc- whether, as is often tbe case, they ace enthusiastic over any new game, are rpacmiug their new hobby with almost BOAhatod keenness. Lately there has been stuck prumUing about the length of the La which many balls have been lost, lad about the cowa walking about seeking what they may devour, with a special partiality for golfing tackle. The golfers, kemvrer, generaiiy bear their trials with sasiitag faces, as a. 6pertt man should and ,,tliey ctmw6 themselves with the reflection tWIt, tboagh the eourse has not yet reached fch*6 perfection that it will doubtless attain ia fatere seasons, it will be a grand course [ia the autumn aud whiter. The club kowe is still onfiaished, little having been ¡ to it for over a month. The delay sww due, in the first place, to the illness «3f the carpenter, who atterwards took a ] week off to attend the meeting of the Cdfiuistic Methodistic Association in IGta Meadows. Now that the prayer ,ousting ia over, he will doubtless remem- her that he is enjoined to be not slothful ia. bosmeas," as well as fervent in agiiifc. The proposal to allow golf on Sand ays at Prestatyn has not commended itself to a large section of the community. There .-in sotuefching to be said in favour of t Saoday games for those who are tied to ¡ offiee or to other work all the week, i&fioagh even in such cases the promoters of sports must walk warily. Too often, however, the demand for Sunday games ccmes from those who, spending six days :-f die week on pleasure, see no reason for < £ e«otiitg the seventh day to any higher :ob £ «ct_ The Denbigh club has acted lwitel" ia prohibiting Sunday golf. The members of the Royal Denbigh iBowlulIg Green are not to be outdone in i keeianees by the golfers. It is slanderously Istud that some of them tpend nearly all f: tMr waking hours on the green. This is | no4 true; I have eeeo the members in |< £ «eatu»a about the town at various times Idita season. £ don't say that it was not 'r«a £ ag then, but that's another story.

MISSING MEN RESCUED. STORY OF WHALE-BOAT LOST IN TUE -FOG. There is a startling sequel to the collision in which the cruiser Sappho narrowly escaped foundering in the Channel on Satur- day night, says the Daily Chronicle. It was understood in Dover that all the men who had taken to the boats had been accounted for, and had duly returned to tha cruiser, and had answered to the roll-call. In the official report sent out by the Ad- miralty the following statement was made: No lives lost, nor anyone injured." It was naturally assumed, therefore, that all the men who had left the Sappho had been ac- counted for; though, in view of the weather conditions that prevailed at the time, such a fortunate issue was almost more than could have been anticipated. INFORMATION REFUSED. In the course of Monday afternoon, how- ever, there were ritmours, originating with the crew of the Sappho, that all NN as not well, and t.hat one boat was missing. The Daily Chronic-It correspondent at Dover immedi- ately went on board and interviewed several of the officers, but was refused all informa- tion. In unofficial circles and among the mem themselves the missing crew was the one touic of conversation; and surprise was generally expressed at the reticence of the authorities. Careful inquiries among the men resulted in a detailed story to the effect that the boat missing was the whale-boat occupied by a number of men, variously estimated, and the master-at-arms. It will be remembered that a denqe fog prevailed at the time that ren- dered the task of the boats' coxswains in keeping together extremely difficult. When the boats reached the shore the whale-boat was not with them. Great consternation was caused by the incident until the crew of another boat reported that they saw the whale- boat approach a large steamer, apparently a liner, which was quite close in to Dungeness. They were confident that the men had been taken on board and would be landed at some eastern port. RESCUE OF THE CREW. Tho seqtiel to the story came late on Mon- day night in a telegram from a correspondent at Filey, Yorkshire, who telegraphed that news of the missing men had been received at Flamborough Head. He stated that a large steamer, whose name he did not know, following in the wake of three destroyers, and steering north, stood in close to the Head, and signalled that she had picked up in the Channel twentv-six petty officers and men of the cruiser Sappho, and had them Siife on board. She asked, added the corre- epondent, for Admiralty instructions in re- gard to them, and then proceeded north- wards. For some time, adds ti, ])c:;h' r,t r, r the truth of this account » •-•■•uht. report had been received l.>*d's, ;\lld still the Admiralty and the unv„| r-ntliorities at Dover kept silent. We are enabled to state, however, that at a late hour on Monday night a message was received fully confirming the story as to the safety of the men and the manner of their reseue.
DEATH OF SIR ANDREW LUSK. A REMARKABLE CAREER. Sir Andrew Lusk, Bart., died in London \>n Monday. Sir Andrew, who was aged ninety-eight, was Lord Mayor of London from 1873 to 1874, and sat as Liberal M.P. for Finsbury for twenty years. During his year of office as Lord Mayor be entertained the Czar of Russia. Sir Andrew was an outstanding example, says the Globe, of the man who finds in activity the secret of longevity. In fact, he himself once declared that unwearying indus- try, coupled with moderation in all things, had enabled him to enjoy life as much when I nearing the century as most men do when only completing half that period. The son of an Ayrshire farmer, Sir Andrew, at an early age. made his way to Greenock, where he founded a store. It was in 1845 that he came to London and entered upon a period of commercial prosperity, with which was coupled a long series of civic hon- ours, the greatest of which was accorded to him in 1873, when, at the age of sixty-four, he was elected Lord Mayor. His first office in connection with public life of the City, was that of Sheriff, to which he was elected in 1860. He became an Alder- man in 1863, accepted the seat of Bridge Without in 1892, and retired from the magi- stracy in 1885. He represented Finsbury in Parliament from 1865 till 1885, and although an uncompromising Radical, was popular on both sides of the House. In connection with his political career, it is interesting to note that while sitting on the Liberal side of the House, and a thorough believer in the Glad- stone policy, he was especially drawn to Dizzy," a strong friendship springing up between the two. His mayoralty was notable in the history of civic hospitality. He gave a ball at the Man- sion House which was attended by the Duke of Edinburgh and his Russian bride, and welcomed the Czar of Russia on his visit to the City. In commercial life he was known as the chairman of the General Assurance Com- pany and of the Imperial Bank, afterwards united with the London Joint Stock Bank. He founded the firm of Andrew Lusk and Co., but retired nearly a quarter of a century ago.
TERRITORIALS AND THE LAW. DISPUTE WITH A DISTRICT COUNCIL. Has the War Office a right to erect build- ings for military purposes wherever it likes in defiance of local by-laws? This question is raised by the Ilford Dis- trict Council. Plans for the erection of cer- tain sheds at the rear of a private house ac- quired on behalf of the Essex Territorial Forces Association were disapproved on the ground that the proposed structures would seriously infringe the building by-laws. The sheds were, nevertheless, put up; and, when communicated with, the surveyors to the as- sociation replied that this body, while not subject to local by-laws, always conforms as far as possible to the wishes of the local authority. Owners of adjoining houses complain that the sheds prejudicially affect the value of their property, and the occupiers allege that they are deprived to some extent of sunlight and fresh air. The District Council regards the incident as a very arbitrary and high-handed pro- ceeding," and protests that it is useless to make by-laws, and ludicrous for the Local Government Board to approve them, if they can at any time be ignored with impunity by even a State Department. Failing a satisfactory agreement with the AlssociatlOn surveyors an appeal is to be made to Mr. Haldane, and should this course prove ineffective Sir John Bethell, M.P., will be asked to bring the matter to the notice of Parliament, At a League cricket match a young follow hoc the misfortune to got several of hi" teeth broken whilst piavincf against a fast bowler. In the re- turn fixture the young man was again facing thf bowler; but ere the ball was delivered l shouted across tho wicket, Hey, mate, A* hope tha'rt not after my teeth again." No, lad." came tho quick reply; it'is thy ctunip Aw'm after this time." A plan was formed to scare a certain Tim Ca«ey, living ia a village near Belfast, on hi« returning from inarkot bv night pact the church- yard.
