tic statement on tho murder of ElaJo
SIgel that has been made by tho po
lice Blnco tho discovery of tho glrl'n
body on Juno 18 In a trunk In tho bed
room of Leon Ling, an Americanized
Chinaman, In Eighth avenue.
"Wo shall catch the murderer," tho
Inspector said "Delay does not alter
that, nlthough It chafes' us. Tho
whole country Is one vast rat trap,
wjth every exit guarded. Tho girl
was killed between 10 o'clock In
the morning and noon of Juno 0,
and wo believe Leon Ling is tho man
who did It, with Chung Sing, his Inti
mate, as a posslblo accomplice. Wo
have Chung Sing. From his room In
&lghtu avenue Leon Ling went
Btralght to Washington and tlinro sent
the 'don't worry' telegram , signed
'Elsie' received on tho night or the
murder by the SIgel family. From
Washington he returned to Now York
and somewhere about midnight of
Juno 9 took the body In a trunk to
Newark, arriving there about 2 a. m.
on June 10. Leon Ling returned to
New York and from that moment wo
lost all track of him. No murder that
I can remember has nttracted such
wide, or such enthusiastic, co-opera:
tlon on tho part of the police of other
cities. All the forces of tho country
are working as one great .machine.
We have fifty men of our own force
on the case. The only steamer on
which Leon Ling could have left tho
country Is due to arilve In Yokohama
on July 3. She will be watched. Wo
