Police said there was no word Tuesday on the condition or location of Yim Ling Eng, 43, wife of William Eng, owner of the Kingston Tea Garden restaurant. She was taken by force from her Hurley home a week ago Sunday. The five suspects in the case, all former cooks at the restaurant, appeared before U.S. Magistrate Ralph Smith. All had been held In the Ulster County Jail without ball on state charges of kidnapping, conspiracy to kidnap and grand larceny by extortion. Smith set bail at (250.000 for Leong Hoong - Slew, also known as Simon Leong. 27, of 726 Broadway. Kingston, and 3150,000 for Chan Lok - Hong, 28, of 298 Wall St., Kingston. They were charged with kidnapping and conspiracy to kidnap. The maximum sentence is life In prison. Ball on Leong was set high because his alleged Involvement in the case was greater than the others, according to Special Agent Joseph Skriat of the FBI bureau In Albany. Smith postponed setting ball on the three others until their attorneys could review the charges and make motions regarding ball. They are Hee Cheng, 24, Plan Chun Yong, 20, and Plan Nam Yong. 24. all of 291 Wall St. The FBI and state police are following Information from several sources that Mrs. Eng may be in New Jersey, possibly In a wetlands area, Skrzat said.

There has been no further communication with others involved in the conspiracy who have not yet been arrested, he said, adding, "There's no indication as to her fate." Mrs. Eng, an officer in the restaurant corporation, was abducted at the Eng's Hurley home a week ago Sunday. The kidnappers demanded a 8300,000 ransom from Eng, but he was only able to deliver 3150.000. Just 11,200 of the ransom has been recovered. Skrzat said the FBI is investigating why the kidnappers did not release Mrs. Eng when the partial payment was delivered. KgggggggggggOl ligwaWaWaWaWaWaWaPip!SSaWa IsssBwbsssssssssssssMb wEi!

Mestlce said. proposal! fails i 2nd bid By Jonathan Saltxman Journal staff The Dutchess County Legislature, voting almost entirely along party lines, refused Tuesday to reconsider a day - care program defeated last month. By a vote of 19 - 16, the Republican - controlledcontrolled Legislature opposed a motion by Democrat James Hammond to re - examine the proposal, which would have established more day - care centers and allowed mothers to continue their education. The vote came after Legislature Chairman Joseph Pollluccl angrily refused to let representatives of community agencies voice support for the proposal because the issue was not on the agenda. The Republican chairman had told Democratic Minority Leader Judith "Kip" Bleak - vinck 'ev that he would let one community repre sentative speak rive minutes about the program. Instead, Mrs. Bleakley asked Pollluccl to let five people speak one minute each. Among the groups represented were the YWCA, the Dutchess County Youth Board. and the Grace Smith House for battered women. See Day - care, page 12 Ulster seeks Con Ed's help in garbage crisis By Harvey Auster Joaraal staff KINGSTON - Ulster County officials said Tuesday night they continue to look to Consolidated Edison as the surest and least expensive solution to the county's garbage dumping crisis. They said their hopes lie with the New York City utility, despite some negative comments by the utility as to whether Its proposed conversion of two major power plants from oil to coal - generation will go forward. "If s Just a marriage made In heaven," County Planning Director Herbert Hekler City planners set review of condo plan By Robert DeFlUlppo Jaaraal staff The City of Poughkeepsle planning board decided Tuesday to require an environmental assessment of a Ill - unit condominium project off Academy Street that had previously been given preliminary approval. The decision effectively means a repeat of the planning process for Robert Ackerman and Springslde Associates, the project developers. David Aldeborgh, planning board chairman, said the board made a mistake when It voted late last sdmmer to approve a preliminary site plan for the 43 - acre Springslde project Aldeborgh said an environmental assessment of the project is necessary first The planners voted Tuesday to be the lead agency In the environmental review and declared that the review was necessary because the development would be partially built on a national historic site. The Springslde property was the location of Matthew Yasser's summer cottage more than 100 years ago. The land bad also once been landscaped by Andrew Jackson Downing, a leading landscape designer. See CITY, page 24 told the Ulster County Solld Waste Task Force Tuesday night. He said that coming op with an affordable solution to the solid waste disposal problem will be very difficult without Con Ed providing the land to dump In and the cover material, which is what would happen If the utility choses a northern Ulster County site to dispose of its ashes from a coal - fired power generating facility. A month ago, state Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Henry Williams approved Con Ed's proposal to convert Its Arthurkill power plant on Staten Island and Its Ravenswood plant in Astoria, Queens, from oil to coal. However, as part of that approval, Williams said Con Ed would have to build electrostatic scrubbers that would remove 10 percent of the sulfur dioxide from the stack emissions. Con Ed spokesmen have told county officials several times since then the latest being last week, Hekler said that it absolutely cannot consider putting such scrubbers in at the Ravenswood plant because there Is no room. Utility officials complained It would be too costly. Hekler told the task force that Con Ed officials told him they would have to purchase an entire city block adjacent to the Ravenswood plant to Install such a scrubber there. But while Con Ed has been talking negatively, Hekler said he is encouraged by the utility's statement It still plans to go forward with Its applications for state permits to operate an ash dumping site somewhere along the Hudson River. "They are acting as If they will attempt to get the permits, but they have not determined definitely what they will do," Hekler said. "At this point, it's hard to tell Just what is a threat, what is bravado and what Is real. We Just don't know."
