First, the troops In the earliest stages
refuaed to fire on the mob, either because
they were numerically Inferior, or because
they were In sympathy with the mob;
aecond, the movement waa distinctly revo

fury of the mob waa vented almost entirely
against the church and tta representatives,
private property being generally spared.
Populace Acclaim the Troops.
Eye witnesses saw the populace every

and fighting the police and the civil guard
and the crlea were "down with the govern

live the republic!"
Stories of the ferocity of, the mob toward
church property and the priests, monks and
nuna are Incredible. The monka who could
not escape through the subterranean pas
sages In the monasteries were beaten and
killed. The nuna fleeing from the burning
convent were driven half naked through
the streets, and the priests, it Is reported,
were shot at the steps of the altar. It la
even stated that the mangled bodies of
monks were carried on poles through the
streets by 10,000 people, and that-the cap

1 Diversities Slayer Formerly
Employed on Battle
NEW YORK. July 31. Or. Luk Wing,
CI inese vice consul at New York,
graduate of Lehigh and Yale universities,
who married an American girl sixteen years
ago. was mortally wounded In his office
on the fifth floor of No. 18 Broadway, by
a Chinaman, who gives contradictory re
ports of himself In pidgin English.
Dr. Wing died tonight In St. Gregory's
hoipltal shortly after S o'clock. He was
shot In the back with a revolver, and the
bullet, entering below the shoulder blades,
lodged in the lower lobe of the left lung.
No attempt to probe for It waa made. Mrs.
Wing, who Is 111 herself, was driven to the
hospital In time to be at the bedside. Her
husband recognized her and smiled, but
at no time was he strong enough to make
an ante-moterm statement.
Murderer la Identified.
Michael McDonald, who for twenty-seven
years has been special watchman at the
Chinese consulate, Identified the murderer
tonight aa Wo'ng Bow Cheung, who he says
was formerly a steward on the United
States battleship Indiana. The man, him
self, who waa first thought to b a
Japanese, gave his name to the police as
Matuda Woung and said he lived at 121R
Buttonwood Mreet, Philadelphia, although
until recently he had been employed as
cook at Glennhall, an Atlantic City hotel.
He came to New York only yesterday. He
la undersized and crop-haired and wears
American clothes. The rational motive for
the murder has developed.
McDonald says he believes the man Is
crazy. During the six years he has been
in this country he has been In and out of
the consulate at intervals, importuning
whomever he could find for a position or
for a loan.
Ko Witnesses to Shooting.
Nobody witnessed the shooting. The as
sassin, when he reached the street waa
taken in charge by two policemen who had
noticed his agitation and haste. A re
volver with one exploded shell and a mis
fired shell In It was found In his coat
Quong Ylck Nam, the Chinese interpreter
who figured prominently In the Elsie Slgel
case, quizzed the prisoner at length to
night. He talka freely to Anyone, but his
excited and broken answers to questions
seem to bear out McDonald's theory that
the man Is deranged.
Plea of St "-Defense.
The element ot fact In his conflicting
statements Is that he had a grievance
against the vice consul because applications
for aid had been refused. Although he
complained of being In want and having
slept last nlht In the municipal lodging
house, the pc ce found $14.65 In his clothes.
He denies thai he murdered Dr. Wing, and
asserts that he fired In self-defense. He
says he was being forcibly ejected from the
corsulate when he resisted and the vice
consul drew a revolver and they fought
for the weapon, and he got it, he declares,
and he fired point blank.
