J* THREATENS BYRNES
Asserts That "Society's" Arm Will
Reach Him?Got Congressman
P. H. McGowan in The State.
Washington, Oct. 6.?Through negro
publications, printed in Washington
and elsewhere in the United
States, open statements were made
today that the life of Congressman
James C. Byrnes of the Second
South Carolina district in the house
might be forfeited at an early date
for his marked antagonism to the ne
gro race and especially for his recent
utterances on the floor of the house
on the negro question. These publiv
cations openly and shamelessly and
without any reason whatever declared
that the life of the late Representative
James Willard Ragsdale of the
? m 1:? J

died suddenly in this city on July 23,
IS 10, was caused by them and that
"the long arm of the society (the
Borgia) will soon reach Mr. Byrnes."
There were also anonymous com
munications received by Mr. Byrnes
today which have been laid before
the United States department of
Among these was the following:
"When you Southern M. C. begin to
writhe and squirm it shows the shaft
has sunk deeply. When you depart
from the straight path of legislature
for cotton and crackers then your
names go on the list of the proscribed.
"Ragsdale became obnoxious and
the long arm of the society reached
out and clutched him. An accommodating
doctor certified heart failure.
"The shadow of the society is hovi

district. One big foua alliance sits

Mr. Ragsdale- died about the time
of the recent race riots in Washington.
He visited the offices of his
Washington physician and while seated
in a rhair in the latter's office
* suddenly expired. The coroner of
the District of, Columbia held an autopsy
and rendered a verdict that the
deceased came to his death from
"acute dilation of the heart."
It was just about the same time
that Mr. Byrnes made a speech on
the floor of the house on the negro
question. Shortly after this soeech
he began to receive many insulting
^ letters from anonymous writers
throughout the country and although
they threatened to "get even with
him," none of them went quite so far
as to say that he would receive the
same measure of treatment as that
which the "society* has just meted
out to his colleague, the late Congressman
Secret Service Men Active.
Mr. Byrnes took the matter before
the government authorities and it is
understood that secret service men
have been on the trail of the a,\ci?ymous
writers and that some of them
may be landed behind the bars as a
result of the investigation.
The ailusion to Mr. Ragsdale,
shows the bragging methods employ
ed by these negro publications and
writers to frighten Mr. Byrnes and
others who may think as he does concerning
the negro question.
Just why the postmaster general
should continue to permit these publications
to go through the mails
which sooner or later must cause
strife and bloodshed 'between the
races is not known but the sooner
jthey are excluded the better it will

weakness. I felt badly a lot of

j much, and also I had to have help j
"to do my housework. I always have

to indigestion. I suffered a lot.j
