The block will be used for stores and of- fices. .Jfew York, June and intimidated by the detectives with prosecution and confused with rapid fire questions, Chung Sin, one time room mate of Leon Ling, told this afternoon of Elsie fiigel's murder. Un- the terrific pressure of the third degree the little Chinaman admitted that he had seen the body in Leon Ling's room over the .Eighth .Avenue Chop fiuey restaurant, and that he touched it while it was etill warm that he had smelled drugs and had watched Leon Ling's prepara- tions for placing the body in the trunk where it was lound, partly decom- posed, on Friday last. in fact, it what was learned today at the criminal courts, is correct, described almost every- thing concerning the murder of Major General Franz Sigels grand-daughter, except the actual commission of the crime. He denied having any compli- city io it, and protested stoutly that he was ignorant of the whereabouts of Leon-Xing, the supposed murderer, but after the inquisition he was taken before the coroner and held in 000 bail in the house of detention to await the inquest.

He was surrounded at the time -in the offioe of the assistant district at- torney by detectives from headquar- ters, wh0 had previously put him through a grilling. Members of the district attorney's office were also present and from what could be learn- ed it was Jerome himself who finally drew the story from Chung 8io's_lips. He was told that Leon Ling had been captured and had laid the blame upon his (Chung Sin's) -shoulders. This, together with the persistent -hammering of the prisoner brought the- confession. It was taken down by stenographers. From the man's story, it- was- ap- parent that Elsie Sigel was first drug- ged with chloroform and then choked to death.
