deceives a Latter Threatening His Life
By Associated Press to The Fun
BUFFALO, Dee. 21.—John G. Milburn has been threatened with assassination. An anonymous letter threatening the life of the president of the American exposition company is now in the hands of the police, and three headquarters detectives are attempting to find out who is its author. The letter is written In a plain, bold hand, with apparently no attempt to disguise the writing.
Whether the author is an anarchist or simply a disgruntled Individual who has a small amount of stock in the exposition is ti matter which the police are attempting to solve.
Mr. Milburn is greatly annoyed and worried by the letter, coming as it does at a time so closely following the assassination of President McKinley.
“The people of the United States thought that the assassination of President McKinley,” says the writer of the anonymous letter, “on his visit, to Buaffto was an awful thing. It will be nothing compared to the fate which you and others will meet unless you personally see to it that some return is made to the poor working men and women who’invested in Pan-American stock, and to whom silvery promises were made and have been unfulfilled."
The writer desired to impress Mr. Milburn wit}! bi* sincerity, and wanted to have It understood that his threat is oo mere idle boast, but one which will be carried to fulfilment.
The police believe that the author of the letter is a man of anarchistic tendencies.

Miss Margaret Ryan of 57 Charlotte street was on th*1 way home alone at the hour stated, and while the neighborhood is lonely at that hour of th** night, she had seen nothing to alarm her until, when she was on Esmond street, near Blue Hill avenue, she met a strongly built man, apparently about 40 years of ag •, who was dressed in a dark suit and wore a cap.
The man was walking along in a business like way, and when he was just opposite Miss Ryan In* suddenly shot out his first and knocked her down with a blow on the cheek.
