CLAIMS HE WAS HIRED
Indianapolis, Nov. 20Labor con
ditions in Kansas City, Mo., in which
Bert Brown was business agent of the
Iron Worker's union, and is alleged
to have conspired with James B. Mc
Namara to have the brige across the
Missouri river blown up and to in
duce a barber to do the dynamiting
at Los Angeles, was described in the
"dynamite conspiracy" trial today.
Charles Brown referred to by the
government as a citizen with im
portant evidence," testified that he
became acquainted with McNamara
in a barber shop and later, having
met the dynamiter on the Pacific
coast, McNamara loaned him $50 to
return to Kansas City.
"McNamara told me he could fix it
so I might earn lots of maney," said
the witness. He said a lot of non
union jobs were to be blown up. He
introduced me to Brown and offered
me $200 to blow up the bridge. I
asked Brown why he didn't do it. He
said he wanted to get some one out
side the union, as union men would
be suspected. I refused to do the
job, and later Brown and another
union official were arrested."
