I MRS. DAVI SAYS DREAM DIRECT ED HER TO LETTERS THREAT ENINGS HUSBAND. New Orleans, Aug. 3.-The two missing levters of the three said to have been sent the recently murdered Joseph Davi, over a year ago, by Black Hand agents were found by his widow yesterday morning and placed in the hands of the police for their inspection. The appearance of young Mrs. Davi, heavily veiled and garbed in black, at police headquart ers. accompanied by her mother and a brother-in-law, Pascal Dvi, inspired the report that at last some clew to the solution of the tragedy at Galvez and Art streets had been secured. Such, however, was not the fact. In their eager quest for a motive in the murder of Joseph Davi, the detectives learned from Pascal Davi. that the unfortunate grocer had re ceived three Black Hand letter about a year before his death. One of these epistles was found among his effects, but the other two could never } be secured. Yesterday morning Mrs. Davi, who is staying with her mother at the latter's home in Hospital produced them. Mrs. Davi said that she had found the letters at the bottom of and old trunk belonging to her husband, after an exhaustive search that was inspired by a dream the night be fore. The first letter was in an envelope postmarked May 1, 1910. Translated from the Italian by De tective Dantonia, it reads: "Dear friend, pardon me that we are going to bother you; because we are in need and ask you to favor us with $200, not to obligate yourself to us, but we want the sum as from ( a friend. You must come and deliver it yourself Tuesday morning. You start out of your house 4 o'clock in the morning with your horse, and take Tulane avenue, the route that , brings you to Carrollton avenue, and I I when you meet a man who will ask you for a match you will deliver to him the money. Be careful and do what we ask you, otherwise you will suffer the consequences." The letter, like both of those E which followed it, is unsigned. All j k three are in the same handwriting. Undated, and the envelope lost, the only information concerning the time of the second letter is the declaration of Pascal Davi that it arrived about - ra week after the first. I reads as follows: "Your attention is called to the tact that we have respected you as a friend, but you have not done as we requested you to do, and now if anything happens to you don't feel sorry for it, because you have been warned. Be careful. We are after you and don't .forget it. You go B and see some of your friends, and - everything can be fixed, but if you B go to sleep over it, others will be 1 awake. You will regret it. Pay at t tention, and by doing so you will f not be sorry. Everythiing can be ar o ranged. Goodbye until Tuesday.". D Although greatly alarmed by these I communications, Davi did nothing more about them than consult his brother. About a month later the third letter came. This was the one s which the police secured shortly after the killing. It was couched in pro fane and threatening language, of fered Davi a last chance to pay the $200, and promised death in the o event that he failed to do so. Detective Dantonio, the local exs pert in questions of Italian crime, declares that the letters are un l doubtedly genuine Black Hand com L1 munications, and probably have all to do with the murder. "The threat in the second is significant," said he. " 'If you go to sleep over it, others will be awake.' Davi was murdered as he lay asleep in bed, over a year after his failure to ac etide to the demands made upon him." District Attorney Adams, Inspec tor Reynolds and Chief Long to gether perused the two letters brought by Mrs. Davi, but decided that their discovery could throw little additional light upon the crime. The police have worked in vain to discover a single clew to the iden tity of Davi's murderer and practical ly have given up the chase. Detec tives old in the service brand it as the. most inexplicidble case the New m Orleans police ever handled. m ______... iy KIiNIWOOD. Town Votes to Issue Bonds to SAmount of $60,000.
