SITUATION IS
MOREACUTE
Austria Will Issue an Ul
timatum Against Ser-
via at Once.
Berlin, Nov. 25. Relations between
Austria-Hungary and Servia aro so
strained that political affiliations in
Vienna have abandoned further hope
of peace, says the Neue Gessellschaft
liche Corresponded, which says It has
its Information from a diplomatic
source.
Despito official Austrian denials of
the reported mobilization of the Aus-tro-Hungarian
army the Correspondez
declares that five army corps have
been already mobilized.
Austrian reserves continue to Iks
called out In large numbers. The Aus
trian government, It continues, Is re
solved not to await the return of the
Servian troops operating against the
Turkish troops and an ultimatum
agalnsfScrxia'-mKy' be expee'rea 'Itf a
few days.
The situation has become more
acute through the changed attitude
of Russia. Serglus Sazanoff, Russian
foreign minister, after having declared
suitablo, as a basis for furthor nego
tiations, tho Austrian proposnl guar
anteeing Servia a freo port on tho
Adriatic sea and a Servian railway
through Albania, but without territor
ial rights, has now abandoned this
standpoint
Austria is now disposed to puBh tho
matter to a decision bocauso if war is
inevitable she wants to take advantage
of her mobilizations being moro ad
vanced than thoso of Russia.
CRUISERS CHANGE
THEIR ITINERARY

ta, whilo the oMntana, which was
de'atiuod for Beirut, has started for

PLOTS LAID
Witness Tells of Plans
for Wholesale Mur
der by McNamara.
Indianapolis, Nov. zp. Witnesses at
the "dynamite conspiracy" trial today
testified concerning "wholesale ex
plosions" which tho McNamaras wore
alleged to have contemplated, but
which wero prevented by tho arrest
of the dynamiters at Detroit and In
dianapolis in April, 1911. The ex
plosions contemplated, as told by wit
nesses, were:
To blow up tho locks of the Pan
ama canal.
Ti blow up a building In Pittsburgh
occupied by officials of iron and steel
contractors who employed non-union
mon. and alBO to blow up offices In
other eastern cities.
To blow up the acqueduct and wa
ter worsk nt Los Angeles.
To blow up a 6leeplnc car to get
rid of a stenographer formerly em
ployed by the Iron workers' union,
becau8o she knew too much
"I'll blow the whole town off the
map; the peoplo will think there has
been another earthquako similar to
San Francisco," said J. B. McNamara.
discussing tho campaign he expected
to make at Los Angeles, according to
Ortle E. McManlgal.
McManlgal testified that James B.
McNamara. admitted he wanted to kill
him (McManlgal) in the Wisconsin
woods
Judge Anderson announced he
would not Increase the bonds of tho
other defendants and would "pass"
the motion for the present.
Indianapolis. Nov. 25. Plots to blow
up the Frlck building In Pittsburg, to
blow up other buildings in eastern cit
ies where "open shop" Iron and steel
contractors had their offices, and to
explode a bomb In a sleeping car In
order to kill Miss Mary C Dye, a ste
nographer, were described by Lindsay
L Jewell at the dynamite conspiracy
trial today as having been revealed to
him by Herbert S. Hockln
'When was It Hockln first disclosed
to you Information about explosions?"
Jewell was asked by Senator Kern for
the defense.
McNamara Plotted Murders.
"He told me he waB opposed to the
wholesale murder being planned and
got mo to pro'mlse him I would nov
er reveal the source of my Informa
tion. He told me President Ryan
knew nothing of the plots to murder.
That was McNamara's scheme.
"After Hockin told he who blew up
the Times building I promised him if
he over got into trouble I would see
that after he got out he would get
a position paying $2,500 a year for
two years. When Hockin began to
communicate with Burns, Burns as
sumed that obligation to Hockln."
Plan to Blow Up Sleeping Car.
"Did Hockln tell you JameB B. Mc
Namara was planning to blow up a
whole sleeping car full of persons In
order to kill Miss Dye because sho
knew too much?" asked District At
torney Miller.
"Yes; Hockin told mo of plots for
wholesalo murder and that the Frlck
building was to be blown up with oth
er buildings in tho east In which were
officers of noii-uulon labor employ
ers. "
Jewell also repealed tho statement
that Hockln reported to Burns direct
within a month after the Times ex
plosion, telling Burns the dynamiters
wero on a hunting trip in tho Wiscon
sin Woods. It was bocauso of Jewell's
testimony that Judge Anderson in
creased Hockln's bond from $10,000 to
$20,000, In default of which he was in
custody of a deputy marshal at the
trial today.
No action was takn by the court
on the government's motion to in
crease the bonds of six moro of the
defendants.
McManlgal Resumes Confession.
Ortle E McMunlgal next resumed
his confession on the stnnd.
"Tell what. If anything, you aud tho
McNamaras said about blowing up
work on tho Panama canal," said Dis
trict. Attorne Miller.
"In April, 1011. In Indinnapolis,"sald
McManlgal. "J. J. said the McCllntock
Marshall Construction company, a
non-union concern, had two years'
work on Uio Panama canal and he
wanted mo to go there. He said I
should go to Panama and enlist as a
soldier, aa I already had servlde In
the Spanish-American war. I asked
him if he expected me to tako nitro
glycerin to Panama. Ho said, 'No, the
McCHntock-Mnrshall peoplo havo
great stores of dynamite down there.
You cau watch your chance to steal it.
Put a wagon-load In oach lock.'
'I didn't take much to the Panama
trip and told J. J. so, but ho Insisted
he would take it up later. J. n. nt
that time hald ho had more work on
tho Pacific coast He said he was go
ing back there with an arrangement
to set off bombs by touching an elec
trical current miles away. ue 8aij(
'I'll go to Los Angeles and undermine
the aqueduct and the waterworks, then
put bombs at various parts of the
city and blow tho whole towu off tho
map. The peoplo will think thore has
been another earthquako similar to
tho one In Sau Francisco"
McManlgal then described hlB go
ing to Detroit with James U McNam
ara to blow up four jobs and their
arreBt thero. which prevented tho
wholesale explosions which were soon
to be carried out, he said I
"After wo were arrested In Detroit
and while wo wero on the train going
to Chicago. James B. began to yell
about being kldnuped," aald McManl
gal. "Guy Blddlngor. a Chicago de
tective, had ub handcuffed. J B.
offered 35,000 to let us escape. Bld
dlngor erfused Then J. B. raised the
amount to 530.000, saying he would
get the amount from J. J. McNamara.
Ho said If Biddlnger did not let us off
the train thero would be a gang wait
ing for him at Chicago and that they
would got him. Then J B. said to
Blddingcr: 'If you don't take the
$30,000 Clarence Darrow will get It.
for we will have Darrow J. B. begged
Biddlnger to allow mo to go or to
allow my wife to go to Indianapolis
to arrange to procure the money. 1
said I didn't want my wife mixed up
In It.
"At Chicago wo were taken to the
homo of a detoctlve named Reed. J.
B. sent for me and was allowed to
talk to me. I reminded him that he
had talked too much on the train, that
ho had told the detectlveB the Los
Angeles explosion was caused by gas,
and therefore he had shown he knew
too much. Ho said he would deny
all that. Ho asked me what we
should do. 1 answered 'Every man
for himself.'
"William J. Burns camo to see me
