Thirty-Eight Convicted of
Dynamite Conspiracy.
Indianapolis, Dec. 28.--The
United States government, with
stern and decisive swiftness, to
day took into its possession
thirty-eight union labor officials,
convicted of conspiracy of pro
moting explosions on non-union
work throughout the land, of
aiding in the destruction which
brought loss of life at jLos Ange
les, Cal., and of carrying on a
"reign of terror" declared to be
unparalleled in the history of the
country.
Almost the entire executive
staff of the International Associ
ation of Bridge and Structural
Iron,Workers were acqnvicted.
Only two officials of the union
now remain out of jail. At the
head of the list of those convict
ed stands Frank M. Ryan, the
president.
It was of this union, with 12,
000 members, that John J. Mc
Narmara was secretary-treas
urer, while he conducted. the
dynamitings, out of which the
present convictions grew. To
day's convictions, coming on a
scale unprecedented in a Federal
court, were an aftermath of the
killing of twenty-one persons in
the blowing up of the Los Ange
les Times building on Oct. 1,
1910. McNamara and his broth
er, James B., the Times dyna
miter, are convicts in California;
Ryan and his fellow officials,
former associates of McNamara,
* are Federal prisoners here await
ing senience.
Herbert S. Hockin, who re
signed as secretary of the union
only a few weeks ago, and who
Was branded as the "Iago of the
conspiracy" in having helped to
instigate the plot and employing
Ortie E: McManigal to carry
them out, while afterward "be
traying his fellow-congpirators"
to promote his own interests,
stands among the most promi
nent of those convicted. He fig
urod almost daily in the testi
mony.
Sixteen minutes was all the
time required by the court to
receive the jury, read its verdict
of "thirty-eight guilty and two
not guilty" and dismiss the
jurors.
That verdict brought to an end
the historic three months' "dy
namite conspiracy" trial. It
meant. except in the cases of
Herman G. Seiffert, Milwaukee,
and Daniel Buckley, Davenport,
In., who were the two men out
Sof forty to be adjusted not guilty,
tbht the governnient's charges
about dynamite plots extending
over six years hadbeen sustained,
SItmeant' that thirty wives,
many of whom, with their child
ren, patiantly had sat through
the lon, drawn-out ordeal, ~"at
last were to be separated from
:~their husbands.
Slmportant details yet remain
in consequence of the verdicts,

of Dr. Aswell Slaps at Near
Peonage.
ie Little Rock, Ark.. Dec. 27
h Declaring that the United
- States was on the verge of the
n semi-peonage system practiced
;, in England among the land own
ers, Congressman-elect J. B. As
n well, of the Eighth Congressional
f District of Louisiana, of Natchib
h toshes, to- night addressed the
Arkansas State Teachers Auoci.
a ation, in convention here. He
e was emphatic in his statements,
e speaking on the "Country Life
and Its Product." He was elo
e quent and was warmly received.
"There is danger ahead," said
LI Dr. AswelL America is tending
toward the English system. It
a will require a generation to check
e the tendency. The gospel of
small ownership, the evils of the
e tenant system, and the curse of
society of the large land owner,
should be the teachings of every
country school.
"To meet the situation sue.
e cessfully, you and 1 must help
e lead more people to make the
farm a permanent home not by
telling the boy that the coun
try is a place of ease and luanry,
of beauty and enchantments, of
love and romance, but by frank
ly teaching that it is a place of
serious, earnest, difficult work
and a place of rare opportunity
and privillege. Give the boy
sanitary surroundings a tele
phone, good roads, rural mail
service, and through the wschool
habit of work and the earning
power to make a comfortable
living and he will choose his own
place to live."
He stated that in the welding
of the character of the man in
the public schools, the question
should be taken into considera
tion that the boy may desire to
live any place, and therefore he
should be equipped to prosper
anywhere-in the largest city or
the smallest hamlet.
"Not back to the country, but
forward to the country," he
shouted, and continuing, he stat
ed that the South was the logical
place for the young men to settle.
He declared that a careful sur
vey of the North and its condi.
tions emphasized this, in as much
as the banks charged too high
interest; the conditions were
generally unfavorable to the be
ginner in the country.
"The usefulness of a man is
limited to the extent and quality
of his training,"he said at the
outset of his address. "Educa.
tion measures the effort, the pro*
ductiveness and tbe consuming
power of a man. It must folloir
therefore, that all the people of
, the commonwealth are vitally
-concerned in the ednucation of
Severy individual, whether he live

- and regulations adopted by the

a Board for the discipline of the
I teachers in graded and high
" schools. We believe that our
I own School Board would do well
Ito pass siailiar rules. In our
". high school here in town there
e has been friction because some
. of the teachers failed to under.
i stand their duties under a prin
, cipal. The principal is what the
Snapes implies, the head of the
school and eveev teacher under
,a princpal should thoroughly
I understand this, and unless they
r do, cooperation is impossible.
0 The following duties of teach
C ere in graded and high schools
, were adopted by the Parish
I School Board, July 6. 1912:

2, Teachers must be in their
rooms at least twenty minutes
before opening of the school and
shall record their names in rota
tion, with time of arrival in the

nessof their respective rooms,
land for the care of the school
room furniture.
4. Each and every teacher
shall keep record books, make

cipal:or superintendent.
