HIGHER-UP INDICTED '
Boston, Mass., Aug. 29. Four
men have been indicted by the
grand jury, charged-Vih being
participants in the conspiracy to
discredit labor unions in the Law
rence textile strike by "planting"
dynamite -near the mills against
which the strike was called.
The natnes of the men are not
known. They will be kept secret
until the defendants are brought
into court. Two sealed indict
ments were handed', to Judge
Pratt, one containing one name
and the other three names.
That the men "indicted are
prominently connected with the
mills, and may even be the own
ers, was indicated by the state
ment of District Attorney Pelle
tier, who declared that those un
der indictment are ""wety known
in business and commercial cir
'cles." "Ten years' imprisonment and
not the whitewash of a $500 fine
should have been the punishment
meted out to John J. Breen, the
Lawrence politician, wild planted
dynamite during the strike
there," declared the district at
torney, in discussing the indict
ments returned today. Pelletier
added th'at "there would be no
such miscarriage of justice in
Boston" if he could have his way.

point of death today from having
been attacked and his left hand
,chewjedto a pulp by; rats last

awakened his parents, but in the
dark they did not suspect the
cause of baby's cries. The child
went into hysterics and then his
mother discovered the bleeding "

PHONES FROM DEATHBED
"Denver, 'Aug." 29. William
Baskin, 62, a court clerk, for many,
years, died this morning. There
was no one at his bedside when

hope. ,
. "Hello : is that you, Tack '
- "This is Bill Backin. The doc
tors say I've only a few hours to
live, old pal, and I just called you
up to say good-bye.
"It's pretty hard, I know, but
I'm ready, ana before the erid
comes I will call up some of my;
old friends."
That is a sample of the con
versation Baskin carried on with
a score of intimates during the
early morning hours. His,
strength, sustained him until the"
last call was made." Then he sank
back exhausted.
