Collecting Black Mail.
--A young man from Cincinnati, Ohio
, was recently called upon to visit New Orleans, La.
, on pressing business.
He had hardly taken up his quarters at a hotel, when some swindler, who had seen the visitor's address upon the hotel book, called upon him, and represented himself as a member of a "Vigilance Committee," and succeeded by threats in inducing the young man to pay him $50 as black mail.
The stranger made known the circumstances to the Mayor
, who instantly took the necessary steps for the arrest of the swindler.
