"WASHINGTON, D. C, April 24.
The Hunt delegation is helping those
Democrats who are opposing the New
Mexico constitution with the object
that it shall not be admitted, not
withstanding Taft's approval, al
ready filed in the State Department,
unless Taft accepts the Arizona con
stitution with the recall of judges.
Reverberations are louder than ever
in the Capitol and hotel corridors
that O'Neill and Akers, prospective
Senators, and Hunt, aspirant for
Governor, and Frank Avis, candidate
for Representative to Congress, will
dictate the state ticket and those
judges favoring the initiative, ref
erendum and recall. It is not be

LOS ANGELES, Cal., April 24.
Creating confusion, in order to pro
tect the secret of the date and hour
when John J. McNamara, James Mc-
Namara and Ortie E. McManigal will
arrive to face the charge of having
dynamited the Times building, is the
chief occupation of the new officials
who will be charged with the keep'
ing of the alleged dynamiters.
All maintain that Detective Burns
has not informed them of the route
being taken or the movements of
his men.
Chief of Police Sebastian said to
night that he believed the prisoners
will not arrive for two weeks. Sher
iff Hamill, who will be directly in
charge of the alleged plotters, de
clared that probably they will not
arrive until the last of this week,
instead of "Wednesday, as is generally
expected by the people.
Hamill laughed when told that the
prisoners were seen in Kansas City
and other points along the route.
He said that probably the hand
cuffed men were dummies to throw
off the trail anyone who might seek
to stop the progress of the men

Sheriff Hamill.
A large detail of extra men were
examined by Chief of Police Sebas
tian today. He refused to say
whether these additions to the force
were made because of the tense sit
uation which resulted since the ar
rest of the Iron "Workers' secretary.
The iron workers here arc on
strike and though there has been
no belligerent expressions from the
union men, Sebastian regards the sit
uation as demanding a force equal
to cope with any emergency.
Several police officials expressed
fear that the arrival of the Mc
Namaras and McManigal will be
made the signal for precipitating a
long threatened general strike for
unionizing Los Angeles. Such a
strike, coming during the trial of the
alleged conspirators, would create a
dangerous condition. Such fears are
unfounded, however, according to J.

TUCSON, Ariz., April 24. Tired
but jubilant, the Prescott Booster
delegation, Dr. J. W. Flinn, E. A.
Kastncr, F. O. Smith and M. A.
Fraser, feel tonignt that by their
efforts the bonds between the towns
of Tucson and Prescott have been
strengthened as never before in their
history. The first mission was to
Epes Randolph and C. W. Hinch
cliffe, who, for the Consolidated
Telephone coit any, subscribed $100
for the summer colony and joined
the Chamber of Commerce. Satis
factory arrangement for telephone
service in the summer colony was
made. Thence the boosters went to
the University, where Attorney
Smith delivered an address to the
faculty and students on loyalty, not
forgetting Prescott loyalty.
The party was shown over the
campus and buildings and the fac
ulty was then addressed by the dele

E. Timmans, general organizer of tne
Iron Workers, in charge of the strike
here. He said all the union wanted
was a square deal, and asserted it
is probably the intention of the foes
of union labor to lay at the working-
men's doors the responsibility of the
Times disaster. "But," he added,
"I have only to remind the people
of how many times" such terrible
charges have been made against the
unions. Unions arc not organizations
of murderers, and nobody will re-
joice more to see the guilty punish
ed than members of the labor un
ions."
Local labor leaders continued in
conference today on the subject of
the defense of the accused and the
raising of funds. The legal battle
gives promise of being more bitter
than the Moyer-Pcttibono trial for
the killing of former Govcrner
Stcuncnberg. Clarence Darrow, who
defended Moyer, is spoken of as the
chief counsel for the McNamara de
fense, assisted by Attorney Bappa-
port of Indianapolis, counsel for the
Iron Workers, and many others.
