CAPLAN FIGHTING DYNAMITE
CHARGE IN LOS ANGELES
David Caplan is charged with com
plicity in dynamiting a Los Angeles
newspaper plant in 1910 when 20 men
lost their lives. Unless Caplan wins
his fight for a change of venue his
case will come to trial in Los Angeles
in the near future. With Mathew I.
Schmidt, recently convicted on the
same charge, Caplan succeeded in
eluding police authorities and Burns
detectives for five years.
During this nation-wide chase, the
"wanted" man lived quietly near
Seattle. He was hewing a five-acre
farm from the forest 13 miles from
the northwest metropolis, and on
Saturdays worked at his trade of bar
ber in Seattle. His whereabouts was
made to Burns detectives by an "in
former" who professed to be a rad
ical. Caplan's only disguise was an
assumed name. He has a wife and
two children living ia Chicago
