NEW HAVEN, Conn , Jan. 1. Milford,
a small town near this ity, boasts of a
trust which its citizens think is the most
novel combination jet contrived by capi
talists. The trust is formed by the Chi
nese laundrjmen, who have been at war
with one another for some months
Hop Sing came to the town and did a
good business Other Chinamen came and
Hop Sing's business began to fall off. Then
they began to cut prices until Milford was
having its linen done up for almost noth
ing. The Chinese laundrjmen were starv
ing themselves by the cuts and were final
ly forced to enter into an agreement where
by prices are to be kept up. The new rates
went into effect today.

NEW YORK, Jan. L Threats against
the life ot James R. Keene, the leading
"bear operator of Wall Street, have been
made by men who claim to have lost their
money by the recent tremendous slump in
prices. This drop caused a depreciation of
over $100,000,000 In valued of stock3 held
by investors. j
Mr. Keene Is accused of being responai- I
hie for the operations which brought about
the crisis two weeks ago. and since that
time letters have been coming to the office
of Talbot J Taylor & Co , at 30 Broad t
Street, where Mr. Keene makes hi head-j
(luarters, threatening to kill him
Sorre of the letters made savage attacks
and veiled allusion's to plots well planned
to secretlj remove the big speculator from
this earth
At first no attention wa3 paid to tue li
tersmerely the work of lunatics, nothing
more, declared Mr. Keene But still the
letters came pouring in, and especially
during the past few days have they been
numerous In nearlj all cases the notes
were tinned anonjmouslj". Others hail
names attached, but evidently they were
Manj of the v riters told Mr. Keene that
the j were speculators, that they had been
caughf in the "bear" raid, and that they
had been reduced to povertj as a result of
the market s manipulation ,
"I shall make jou paj the price of my
ruin" wrote one man "And death ".ill
be that price "
' You will die bj an assassin's hand, '
said another writer In a bold hand
The frequent j and fierce language of th"
letters finallj ranged Keene s frlfiils to
tegaid the mattei with some alarm It is
understood that thej called the attention
of the police to the letters, but efforts to
locate the writers failed
There have been extra precaution; taken
at Mr Keenc'b private ofilec to prnvent
slrangeis gaining access to his room, and
only those who could propcrlj explain th
nature of their business have recentlj been
permitted to see him Detectives have also
been guarding his office
' Pcronallj Vi Keene did not fear
meet anj of his anonvmous .ritrs
is not a towaid vou can gamble,
onc of bio intim ite as-soclale-
When Mr Keen'- v.as seen todav he
laughed It off with the rcmaik
'Oh I don I think anjbodj u going to
harm mc Men often receive such letters
In Wall Strict Usuallj cranks are re
sponsible Oh no I don't need a pistol
I can take care of mvself Never tarrj
such a weapon '
A man close to Mr Keene said
'These letters bfgan to come t Jim'
after the news got out that he had hit
the market for $5 000 000 Or course he
didn t make anj su h um Everjone said
Keene led the movement and he abused the
slump We all know tnat the small in
vestoi was ternblv hit In the panf" I
know men who lost ?ra) 00') all thej had
"Then there was lh man who put up
his life's earnings of a few thousand !!
was wiped out Now such a man is verv
bitter He- curses Ins 'at.-' and blani"'
everjone In Wall Street Keene as the
mark Cor suth men Could used to get i
when he was alie How manv t'mes did
we Live his life threatened'
' I don t think anv one is going to put
djuamlte undei 'Jim' Keene If tny face
him, man to man I think he'd give them
a good fisht But vou must look out for
the cranks Russell age can tell you
