McMnnigal in Amazing Story
Tells of Detective's
OUTLINES WHOLE PLOT
ftevpnls Groat Conspiracy to
Liiitncli Nationwide Cam
paign of Violence.
'.Indianapolis, Nov. 22. Opera glisscss
,e ttirnctl on Ortle K. SleSIanlgai
from many part of the' Federal Court
room when he came to the witness stand
In the dynamiting cases, nnd for the
first time society turned out to pee him.
Intercut In every part of the ctowded
room was Intense as the witness en
tered upon details of the great con
.plracy which was to have Its culmina
tion In a nationwide dynamiting cam
paign in 1911. He told with dramatic
effect how .lohn J. SlcNumaru laid out
this campaign and how It Included an
attempt upon the. life of William .1.
Hums, the detective. The witness had
tho riveted attention of court nnd spec
tator a he sat easily In the witness
i hair and related the story.
The story of the proposed attempt to
do away with Detective Hums came al
most at the conclusion of the day's
testimony, and there was a coincidence
In It in the fact that the place was ripe,
for execution at the very moment that
Iturns and his men were on the trail of
McManlRal and .1. It. McNntnara In De
troit anil men were here with eyes on
ncry movement made by .1. .1. SlcNa
ninra. According to the witness, the
dynamiting squad knew that Hums was
n their trail, but they believed he had
.'fen thrown oft" the scent by the escapo
i'f J. H. SIcNumara from California. In
fact Hockln told the witness that he
had called up the HurtiN agency .it
Chicago nnd had asked If the detec
tives were still on the Los Angeles
Times Job, and he had been told that
hey were not, that "those fellows qut
"re were too cheap." and McManlgal
hail said to Hockln nfter the narration:
Well, you ceitalnly did have your
n're with you."
McNamara's plan was to find out the
detectives' rooms In Chicago, rent room,
in the same building and place a large
quantity of dynamite in them, then at
night get through the wall Into the
Burns office and arrange the dnumlte
so that tho person who opened tho
door the next morning vnild ex
plode it. This wa in March. 1 1 1 1 . anl
there is little doubt but some such
scheme would have been carried out
had not the dynamiters been arreted
;n the month following.
Another Interesting story was that of
the blowing up of the municipal build
ing at Springfield, llass.. on the morn
ing of April 5, 1911. but a few day be
fore the arrest of the conspirators.
McManlgal said that J, .1. SloNamar.i
.cut for him and when he came here lie
was told to go to Tiffin, Ohio, get some
dvnamtto and take It to Hun tun und re
r rt to SI. J. Voting. The witness got
'urtv pound of dynamite, and when he
tear lied Boston he checked the suit case
attaining the explosives at tne railway
utlon and went to see Young. He
f -und him at the Brldgemun's Hall.
Voting asked him how he wan fixed for
money and offered him 1100, but the
Tv"ne did not need It. Young then
asked him If the amounts Hockln had
held out of his pay had been squared
and he replied that they had not and
"e had never received tho $50 Young
"nt him for the Boston Opera House
That," said Young, "was a present
'mm our local and I will take up tho
matter at the next meeting of the ex
t 'itlvo board."
The witness nnd Young went to Spring
I'.d the next day and took a look at the
municipal building that McManlgal had
cone East to blow up.
'forty pounds of dynamite won't do
much to that tower," ho told Young.
The chief of police was seated at the
' "r of the police station and Young
!' .intfd to him and replied: "Well, place
' e forty pounds under the tower. It
will g.ve him a damned good shaking
The witness said he placed the dyna
l.ne as directed and the explosion oc-
'irreri the next morning at 2 o'clock,
fie tnwer being destroyed.
Taking up the story where he left off
"vterday .McManlgal said J. B. He
N'anmra came to his room In Chicago on
February 19, 1911, and told him that
Local I'nton No. 1 of Chicago wanted
"ine dynamiting done. According to
story as .McManlgal said J, B. Mc
Namara told It to him, tho executive
'lard of the local union had called
I'oekin In and asked him about the price.
There were two factions among tho lead.
' "hip in the Chicago local, he said, and
Ud Francis had gone before tho board
"id sild he had two men from Cleveland
l.o would do the work, but that 500
tho price. According to this story
iloekin underbid Krnnela by telling trio
xeciitho board that ho would have tho
work done for $300.
The dynamiter said they wnt out to
South f'hleiigo and looked ot the work
'"lug put up for tho Iroquois Compuny,
fn he following day they came to In
dianapolis, saw J. J. SIcNamare, then
went out to D, Jones's barn and got
uglily pounds of dynamite, doing It up
In four packages of twenty pounds each.
Reaching Chicago they took tho ex
p.osive to Mc.Manlgal's home and hid
under a stairway leading Into tho
tHjement of the flat. Tho next day

Deputy Chamberlain Testi
fies City Deposited With

Will T.M A N COX T It A D1CT E 1)
Evidence Introduced to Prove
Trust Company Had Mar
gin of Funds-.
Jnt before adjournment at 7 o'clock
last evening Deputy City Chamberlain
Wal.h appeared to land a severe blow
on the irosecutlon in the case of former
Chamberlain Charles H. llyil... Reply
ing to a question on crom-exaininatlon
he testified that the C.irnegie Trust Com
wny had city deposits as far back as
IIW7. before Sir Hyde was Chamber
lain. .Mr. JValsli udmitted tltat he had
only the records of his office to go by,
but it was there set forth.
This was directly contradictory to the
nsertion of District Attorney Whitman
in his opening address that Charles II
Hyde had been the tlrst City Chamber
lain to givo city funds to the trust com
IMiiy und that it was all done because of
the Chamberlain's close relations with
William J. Cummins, who was the prin
cipal owner of tho institution
It was u tedious day in the Criminal
Branch of the Supreme Court, lightened
only by the spirit with which Joseph
G. Robin met some of the ersonnl ques
tions on cross-examination from Slax
D. Steuer of counsel for the man who
is accused of demanding or accepting
a bribe as a public officer Such as It was,
however, the defenco seemed to think
it had scored some very good points.
Tht'y got Uoliin to admit that not only
did the Northern Hank have $2SO,ooo on
deposit in tho Carnegie Trust Company
on August 22, 1910, and $120,000 to 1130, mm
in notes of tho same company, but that
his other enterprises had accounts there
also. Tim amount was said to be around
I $Vki.O00. or rerhans more: but this wax
not allowed to appear on examination
Tlie defence also seemed to think it
mado a strong otnt in tho line of dis
crediting the testimony of Hobin in the
matter of the $150.i0 bond his bank
had given to the city. Robin testified
that when lie thought the rity deposits
were about to bo raised from around
S120,tmo because he had loaned the Car
negie. Trut $130,000 lie spoke about the
bond He said lie understood that a
bank could only carry within about
t-S.tmn of its bond. Fred K. Goldmann, one
of his former managers, acknowledged
on cross-examination that Robin's bank
hail carried all the way from $250,0on to
WiM daily all during the year 1910,
before and after August 22
As soon as Justice GolT had taken
his seat yesterday morning and the jury,
after a night at the Murray Hill Hotel,
was in readiness, Sir Steuer, aided by
John I). Stanchfleld and Sir. Hyde, went
ufter Hobin again. When the session
closed the nifcht before .Mr. Steuer was
trying to make Robin admit, among
other things, that if the Carnegie Trust
hud gone down on August 23, because
he had refused to let it have $130,000, his
Northern Hank would have suffered a
disastrous loss. He took up the matters
of Robin's other concerns yesterday.
Robin admitted smilingly that some of
his other numerous enterprises had de
posits in the Carnegie Trust He in
stanced tho Northern Hunk with $250,000,
and the .VAnti Indemnity Comiany with
$oU,000 or $flo,ooo. and then he said he
"could not remember "
The Hunk of Discount did not have any
money in the Carnegie, nor the Fidelity
Development Company, Robin said, but
the Washington Saving Bank had. Ho
wbh not allowed to say how large this
deposit was. Ho didn't know about tho
Rankers Realty and Security Company
Then he remembered that the Washington
Savings Hank had about $&0,ooo, tho Fidel
ty Development Company $30,000 and the
Hankers. Realty nnd Security Company
$50,000 or $00,000 In the Northern. He
answered to all others that ho "did not
know," he "did not think so,"
Robin did not want to admit that when
tho NorOiern Hank went down every
thing else ho had went with it. He
thought the Fidelity Development Com
pany wbh all right now
"Wo are trying to get that out of bank
nipt cy now as a solvent concern, " ho said.
What appeared for a time to bo a dis
crepancy in his testimony on direct ex
amination and on cross-examination
developed at this point when Sir. Steuer
suddenly jumped to the interview of
August 22, when Hyde is alleged to have
forced him to mnlto the ( 1.10,000 loan.
Robin quoted Cummins as saying that if
tho bonds of New York city wero not in
the box tho next day the Hanking Super
intendent might close tho institution,
It wus cloured up a little later. Robin
testified that only money wus lent. rj"j)0
collateral for the $130,000 loan from the
Carnogio Trust Company wus mortgages
nnd 52 per cont, of Mm capital slock of
tho Publio Hank, nil of which was owned
by Joseph Marcus, Tho face valuo o!
this was about $000,000 und it had been
pledged for 11 loan of $230,noo,
A llttlo later Robin admitted that sev
eral day? later ho had been given tfi un
derstand tho $130,000 note had boon taken
up and destroyed, und In its place the
Northern Hank hud received a $130,000

Froiu ireiat correspondent of THE SUN.
Budapest, Nov. 22. The pessimism
which is rnmpnpt in journalistic circles
in Vienna, based on wild rumors of
mobilization by Austria and Russia, ot
tho murder of an Austrian Consul by
tho Sorbs and other Imaginary occur
rences is not shared in .overnment
circles. On the contrary the situation
is considered satisfactory and with-
perfect reason, for war is inconceivable
without belligerents and Servia alone
cannot wage a campaign against Europe
which is resolved to disallow her exor
Among themselves the great Powers
are agreed respecting vital questions
and will not risk a tremendous conflict
for secondary matters. Consequently
there is nothing to fear on that score.
The source of apprehension is the as
sumption that the Russian Government
is lamentably weak and that pan
Slavism in St. Petersburg und Moscow
is redoubtably strong, so strong that the
Czar's hand may at any moment b
forced and a bellicose lino of action
struck. Such a consummation is prac
tically eliminated. Russia has but ono
policy, that of the Czar, which is pa
ciflcal. The real elements of danger
therefore are dispelled.
.Moreover, a dispassionate survey of
the situation ns between Turkey and the
allies attunes the mind to optimism.
