Alleged WouM be Assailants
Newark, X. J., December 12.?President-elect
Woodrow Wilson may face,
'in court here next Tuesday, the three
men accused of threatening his ?i/e. A
subpoena was issued by a United
States comnrssioner late today for the
president-elect's appearance and to
make this possible he postponed examination
of the alleged blackmailers
from Monday to Tuesday, by which
time, it is expected, the Wilson family
will have reached New York from
The letters which Warren Dunn,
Jacob Dunn and Seeley Davenport,
who wrere arrested Tuesday night, are
* alleged to have addressed to Governor
Wilson at Trenton, were opened by
Joseph P. Tumulty, the governor's secretary.
Mr. Tumulty also was. subpoenaed
today. In case his testimony
as to receipt of the letters is accepted
as sufficient proof, Governor Wilson
may not be required to testify.
. The issuance of the subpoenas was
described by Commissioner siockiuu
as a mere formality, but the commissioner
hoped the president-elect would
The threats in the letters were in demand
of $5,000 or life and one of them
reminded Governor Wilson of the fate
of McKinley and the attempt to kill
Col. Roosevelt. The specific charge on
which the three men are held at pres- !
ent is misuse of the mails. Jacob
Dunn is the alleged author of the let- j
ters. All the men have been known
in the Morris county region for a number
of years. Neighbors say they were
of "an apparently harmless sort."

AIKEN PIASTER KILLED.
Bradford Courtney is Killed by Sei
gro?Posses Seonr the Cwzitrr.
Aiken, Dec. 12.?Bloodhounds fro.n.
! the State penitentiary are tonight
trailing Harris Miles, a negro, -vvho,
if caught before morning, will be
lynched. The negro this afternoon
shot and killed Bradford Courtney,
one of the foremost citizens of ATken
county and one of the county's, most
successful planters. Posses of determined
men are scouring the country
in search of the negro who was seen j
in the outskirts of Aiken shortly be- j
forp, 7 o'clock tonight. He was shot |
at but escaped.
The Miles negro worked on Mr.
Courtney's place, four and a half
miles from Aiken, near Prothros mill
where the killing took place this afternoon
about 4:30 o'clock.
Miles followed Mr. Courtney to his
lot after having oen reprimanded by \
his employer for some misconduct and
demanded a settlement. Mr. Courtney
refused to settle with the negro, telling
him that as he (the negro) was
angry to go home and 'me back later.
The negro stubbornly refused to
leave as ordered, and Mr. Courtney
took up a stick and struck him.
The negro pulled a pistol and fired,
the bullet entering Mr. Courtney's
throat directly beneath the chin. He
wheeled and walked toward the house'
but fell dead before he had taken 20 1
steps. But for the fact that the pistol
was loaded with only one ball, Mr.
Courtney's son, O'Neal, would likely
have been killed by the negro also.
After shooting Mr. Courtney the negro
turned the weapon on his son. E.
O. Courtney, a brother of the dead
