Xndlanapohb, Dec, 7. Many Impor
tant facts far the consideration of the
federal grand Jury ore being obtained
from the bookB, papers and letters
forming a part of the records of the
International Association of Bridge
and Structural Iron Workers which
are now in possession of the gov
ernment officials, and those in
charge of the investigation are posi
tive that a complete chain is being
woven out of the fragments that will
entangle men higher up in the organ
ization than the McNamaras. While
some of the papers are comparative
ly Innocent on their face, they form
some "missing links" and they event
ually may be effective In aiding the
Among the evldonce in the posses
sion of the federal government are
letters and newspaper clippings con
cerning dynamite and nitroglycerin
explosions which bear ont the con
fession of McUonigaL The latter
raid that John J. McNamara had al
ways required him to obtain paper
dippings telling of the explosions
and that these, had to be filed with
ttao secretary-treasurer of the iron
workers before McNamara would pay
nlm for a "Job."
Clippings Are Important
In the material, seixed when the
offices and rooms or McNamara were
raided are said to be such clippings
and the letters In which they wero
contained. It 1b sold also that Mc
Manlgal was by no means the only
person who was Bonding such clip
pings, but that in letters now In pos
session of the government are clip
pings describing other explosions
than those pulled off by McManlga
and J. B. McNamara, and that the
letters refer to those.
A man who has seen a pert of the
evidence said: "I didn't see all of the
correspondence but I saw enough to
convince any court that J. J. McNa
mara and certain others onght to
bang for the rimeB therein dis
cussed. "Great core was exorcised In each
letter to protect the writer and tho
recipient fioin any possible Implica
tion in case the letter came Into the
hands of any official, but tho careful
ones overlooked one thing. They for
got that the entire series of letters
might be token and the series of let
ters makes most damaging cases
against certain men of both national
and International reputation."
One letter in particular was spokon
of which, was addressed to John J.
McNamara at Indianapolis. This let
ter was from a man In a largo east
ern city in reply to a letter from tho
executive board of the union demand
ing an accounting for $500 of tho

man's reply contained simply a clip
ping from a paper telling of a mys
