J* THREATENS BYRNES Asserts That "Society's" Arm Will Reach Him?Got Congressman Ragsdale ? 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 ?51Xtn OOUtn VuiiX'UUHtt uisiiin, wnv 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 justice. Threatening Letter. 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 r -x. j J # eringover you ana n it uesceims ?anu envelopes you there will be another / vacancy in another South Carolina district. One big foua alliance sits at Paris, another sits elsewhere. You Southerners initiated the terror and terror it shall be. Your gage has been picked up." 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 Ragsdale. 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 4)$ for whites and blacks, is the opinio^ expressed here.
