plot against Miss Marian Wrig .
18-year-old society girl, unfoldd
today following the arrest cf Wil-
liam Kuhn, 23, brkehr's clerk, ac-
cused of sending threatening let-
ters. He denied their authorship.
One of them, police said, mention.,
cd "poisonous darts which would
be dispatched noiselessly 3,000 feet."
"Hdw would you like to meet
zilch a fate?" police quoted from
one of the letters, after they had
booked Kuhn Tuesday night on a
charge of attempting to extort
$25,000 from Miss Wright under
threat of death to her or her fath-
er, An executive of the Edgewater
Steel Co. Kuhn's brother, Wendell,
a broker, characterized the matter
as a "mistake" and posted bonds
for the accused man's appearance
in felony court today.
Five Letters Are Sent.
Kuhn was arrested by detectives
co-operating with agents of the
"secret six" under-cover investiga-
ting committee of the Association
of Commerce. Five letters were the
basis for the arrest. Detectives said
an inspection of the office where
Kuhn is employed revealed one
typewriter corresponding with type
of the threatening letters.
According to Miss Wright, who
has appeared in Junior league dra-
matics and who is to make her so-
cial debut next Saturday, she and
kuhn were friendly until recently,
when they quarreled. 'At that time
he said, Kuhn remarked that he
Niculd "get even." A week later,
she said, the first of the letters,
directing that the money be sent
by general delivery, was received.
It bore the signature "Kester Mc-
Kay" and described the author as
the head of a narcotic ring. Her
father then turned the matter over
to the "secret six."
Other txtortions Reported.
Other alleged extortion p lo t s
rmeanwhile were under investiga-
tion, with Walter G. Walker, attor-
ney for the Employers' association,
and Chief of Detectives John Nor-
ton in charge. Neither would dis-
close the names of families report-
ed to have been threatened.
The Chicago Tribune said the ex-
tortion racket had become so seri-
ous that several families were re-
ported to have sent their debutante
daughters to winter homes while
others were employing private de-
tectives as guards.

With the opening of tne snort session of the 71st Congress at Washington, several of the more prominent representatives posed in front
of the capitol building, here, with Nicholas Longworth (fourth from the right), they htcnd to straighten out the tangled problems of
farm relief, prohibition, Muscle Shoals, and a thousand others which have crGp ed up c'er :n e the opening of the Hoover administration.
Longworth retained his place as speaker of the House by a two-vote margin out < 434. The result was long in doubt following the recent
congression l iandslide for the Democratic party.

Lindsey to Blame
Rioting on Manning
NEW YORK. Dec. 10. - Ben B.
Lindsey plans to heap upon Bihop
William T. Maniing the bla-e for
last Sunday's disturbance when he
goes to trial Friday.
Lindsey discloscd today that in
defending himself on a disorderly
conduct charge he would contend
that the bishop incited a riot in the
Cathedral of St. Johin the Divine.
"Bishop Manming;," he said, "wil-
fully and withoat cause provoked
a breach of the peace by slander-
ing me in the pulpit and trying to
mnake his clergy black and me
blacker.
"Bishop Manning's false state-
ment about me and what I stand
for not only incited me to do what
I did but it inflamed the mob spirit
in his own congregation, so that I
was very fortunate to c: ape the
honor of being burned at the stake
or lynched at the cathedral."
The bishop declined to comment
on this line of defense or to say
whether he would be represented
by cousel at the trial, to which he
has been subpoenaed as a witness
for the defense.
The split among Episcopal cler-
gymen over the controversy opened
wider as Dr. Bernard Bell, profes-
sor of religion at Columbia uni-
versity, resigned from the New
York Churchmen's association.
