PROPOSE AWFUL CRIME
McManlgal, as a Part of the Plan,
Was Sent Back to Dynamite the
" Auxiliary Plant of the Times, But
He Balked at the Murder it Would
? "If another dose of dynamite
doesn't unionize Los Angeles we'll
blow up the waterworks and explode
enough mines to burn the city! We
can give them till 'their proposed
Panama Exposition in 1915, and if
they haven't mended their ways by
then .we'll make that place an exam
ple the world will always remem
ber." ... 1
This*, according to a heretofore un
published portion of Ortlc iMcMani
gal's confession, was the substance
of a threat made by the McNamaras
after they had blown up tne i?os
Angeles Times and murdered twenty
one of its employees. The plan was
discussed, McMan: gal said, in connec
tion with his trip to Los Angeies :ast
Christmas, when he dynamited the
Llewyllyn Iron Works?the crime to
which John J. McNamara pleaded
guilty of being the instigator.
McManlgal, who was Jamee B.
McNamara's chief assistant in more
than a score of dynamite outrages,
was sent here to "give the Times a
second dose." Undeterred by the ap
palling loss of life the Times disaster,
the McNamaras determined to break
the defiant spirit of General Harrison
Gray Otis, owner of thw paper, by
placing a bomb against the auxiliary
plant in which the paper was publish
ed after its main building was de
stroyed. MoManigal conferred that
he came fully Intending to blow up
the auxiliary plant. >?
'TBut when I got here," explained
McManlgal when retelling his story
Tuesday. "I found the place so
closely guarded that I couldn't do
anything without taking some lives.
So far as I am aware, my stufT never
killed anybody; I was always careful1
to set my clocks to go off when tnere j
would be nobobdy on the job. Anaj
I wasn't going to"be'a murderer even
to 'get the Times,' so I took the suit
case tomb which I had nrougnt on
a passenger train from Chicago and
left it at the Llewellyn ?ron Works."

WILL DO GOOD
CoDgrsssmaD Lever Will Try to Ammend
the Law pn Reports of ihe
GROWING COTTON CROP
His Object is to Make the Census
Reports on the Growing and Mc
I tured Cotton Crops of Real Bene
fit to the Cotton Growers of the
A dispath from Washington to the
Columbia Record say3 Representative
Lever will introduce a bill, for the
preparation of which he came to
Washington in advance of the ses
sion, and whose purpose is to make
more accurate the reports of the bu
reau of statistics of the department
of agriculture, relating to cotton. The
bill simplifies the present method of
gathering the reports, and abolishes
certain features of the system with a
view to greater accuracy.
"It is not intended by this bill,"
says Mr. Lever, "to create the im
pression that the integrity of these
reports of the department, relative to
cotton, is called into question. On
! the contrary, I am satisfied that the
reports are fairly gi-tten up with no
idea of giving special advantage to
either the producer or manufactur
er of cotton, but are predicted upon
the idea that there shall be some dis
interested source from which shall
issue reliable data upon which the
cotton trade may act. Since the un
fortunate Hyde affair, no one has
j questioned the personal Integrity of
those whose duty it Is to issue these
"During the past 11 years the de
partment of agriculture has made 11
crop estimates, five of which were
Bllghtly over-estimated, and six of
them slightly under-estimated. In
years of over-estimates, the average
error was 2.1 per cent; in those of
under-estlmate the average error was
3.1 per cent; for the entire 11 yearB
the average error was 2.7 per cent
and the balance of the over-estimate
and the unfer-estimate shows for the
entire 11 years a net under-estimate
of .9 of 1 per cent. The l.roducer In
the 11 year period has had the bene
fit of .9 of 1 per -cent. When It Is
remembered that the reports of the
department of agriculture are esti
mates and not enumerations the fig
ures here indicate as near an approx
imation of accuracy as the present
systom is capable. It is impossible to
forecast with absolute accuracy the
yield of any given crop; the best ex
pected is to continue to perfect the
system with a view of reaching the
nearest approach to accuracy.
? "I am unwilling to abandon a sys
tom of some kind of crop reporting,
after it was Inaugurated and built up
at the instance of the producers to
protect them against the biased and
unreliable reports of the cotton gam
bler. Such an abandonment at this
time, or in the future, will place the
producer again, as formerly, entirely
at the mercy of the speculative ele
ment whose business It Is to make
his reports in accordance with the
side of the market upon which he Is
"I am Interested, however, in im
proving the system and in making
these reports represent as nearly as
possible the exact conditions, both
with reference to the growing cotton
and final yield. This bill purposes to
rid the system of some of its crudities
and inconsistencies and to place it
upon a more reasonable and sensible
basis. Under the present system the
acreage report is Issued the first of
June of each year, as the 25th of
May. That the number of acres in
cultivation on the 25th of May of a
given crop year represents accurately
the number of acreB that will be con
tinued in cultivation is preposterous
on Its face; and yea, the report as to
the acreage at this time has a sentit
mental effect during the entire crop,
year and does, In a greater or less
degree affect prices. Those familiar
with the cotton business know that
during the month of June for reasons
innuemerable hundreds of thousands
of acres of cotton are abandoned.
The present report does not account
I for this abandonment of acreage until
1(110* first of December, when the final
estimate is made and when the re
Iport is too late to be of value to he
producer. My bill makes he acreage
report on the first of July when the
acregae then in cotton will more
nearly represent the acreage that will
continue to be cultivated. This, I
regard, as a substantial improvement.
"Again, the present system ma'res
the report as to the condition of cot
ton on June 1st as of May 25th. This
report I have always regarded as an
absurdity, for I am too well acquaint
ed with the actual growing of cotton
not to know that no matter what the
conditions of the crop may be on May
25th, it can be on the 25th of Sep
tember when the crop has ripened. I
could never see any reason for this
report, and yet it does have a senti
mental effect which is hard to over
come, because In the cotton trade, it
is the first Impression that is the
most lasting. The same reasoning
holds with reference to the July re
port of the present system and to
remedy theao defects, my bill pro
poses to abolish the condition re
ports of June and July and make
the first condition report on August
the 1st, when I think all will agree
the condition of the crop at that time
GOMEZ AND EIGHT OTHER MEX
PUT TO DEATH.
Citizens Take the Unfortunate Men
Out of Jail, March Them Ont and
A dispatch from Mexico City says
"Che" Gomez, whose rebellion at
Juchitan resulted in a clash between
President Madero and the governor
of Oaxaca, was lynched Tuesday af
ternoon at Rincon Antonio. Eigbt of
Gomez's partisans met a like fate.
Gomez, who was on his way to the
capital accompanied by ten of his
followers, was taken from tbe train
at Rincon Antonio, Oaxaca, Monday
afternoon and placed in jail by order
of Gov. Juarez, in spite of the fact
that he had been promised safe con
duct by the president and bore a
passport signed by the executive. He
and eight of his followers were taken
from the jail by a. mob of residents
of the little town .augmented by
hundreds from the neighboring reg
ions, marched two miles from town
and shot to death.
Noting the ugly temper of the peo
ple and anticipating trouble, the lo
cal authorities reported the situation
to Gov. Benito Juarez, who was in
San Geronimo, about 40 miles from
Rincon Antonio. He secured the
consent of Gen. Merodio :o send
troops to the village. Before the
troops arrived, however, the guard of
nine rurales constituting the entire
military force of the town, which had
battled with the mob of 1,000 or
more, had been overpowered by the
rabble, and the prisoners were car
ried off into the hills.
The mo had stopped with Its pris
oners at a little station. As the
train appeared It was recognized as
a troop train, and without waiting
longer the prisoners were riddled
with bullets and the assassins fled
[into the hills. Only the bodies of
their victims were encountered by the
soldiers when they alightod from the
Reports from San Geronimo to
night were that mobs of Oaxacans

FOR DYNAMITE CRIMES
The Above Was the Punishment
Meted Out to James B. McNamara,
While John J. McNamara, Who
Blew Up the Llewellyn Iron Works,
Was Given Fifteen Years.
A dispatch from Lob Angeles, Cal.,
says Jame3 Barnabas McNamara and
John J. McNamara, brothers, natives
of Cincinnati, Ohio, Tuesday felt the
strong band of justice which they
long had sought to evade.
J. B. McNamara was sentenced to
imprisonment for life, for murder
committed in dynamiting the Los
Angeles Times building and killing
twenty-one persom, and his brother
to fifteen years in the penitentiary
for blowing up the Llewellyn Iron
It was the retaliatory action of the
law against those lawless methods
which John J. McNamara, secretary
and treasurer of the International
Association of Bridge and Structural
Iron Workers, pursued in fighting
employers who kept open shops.
Though the younger brother,
James B., in formally presenting his
confession to the Cuurt Tuesday, de
clared that he intended no murder
when he placed sixteen sticks of dyn
amite beneath the Times building,, on
October 1, 1910, John J. McNamara,
recounting to his attorneys his prin
ciples, broke down as he muttered
that he fought against great odds
in the' best way he could. It was a
sequel to the Court scene earlier
Tuesday when he received hlB sen
tence In tears of abject surrender.
A few hours after the sentences'
were pronounced by Judge Bord well,
word went forth that 'suDpoenaa
would be issued for both McNamaras
to appear before a Federal grand
jury'to divulge further details of
their dynamiting conspiracies.
The United States Government will
demand of them information coi
cerning Inter-State trafficking In
dynamite, which is alleged to have
resulted In more than' TOO explosions
at bridges and factories where labor
welfare was involved.
Something of the saiiie fear of ter
rorism brought by those explosions
flitted through a crowd of nearly 15,
000 persons Tuesday, as it surged
back and forth around the jail, ex
pecting to see the McNamaraB taken
to the Hall of Records, where previ
ous scenes in the trial had been en
acted. But the Court and counsel,
taking cognizance of possible law
lessness, held the final session in a
Court room adjoining the Jail, and
the prisoners were taken thither over
an interior bridge passageway.
"I never carried a gun until to
day, since the McNamara affair start
ed," confided Samuel L. Browns,
chief official of the State department
of investigation, when his detectives
reported to him that suspicious char
acters by the scores wer? scattered
in the crowd.
Judge Bordwell changed his mind
sevoral times, but tcok final precau
tion and held Court in the soiall
chamber beside the jail. Outside the
crowd begged for entrance. An army
of policemen fought its efforts. To
the Hall of Records, not far distant,
the mass of humanity moved back
and forth in confusion and even
many who really were entitled to ad
mission were denied that privilege.
In the Hall of Records, floors and
stairways were choked with tne cur
ious. Only a hundred persons saw
the two brothers led through the
narrow passageway Into the chamber
beside the jail.
