United States Appelate Court Takes Cases One by One
and Declares Evidtnce Is Convincing in All But
Six Gases and That Suspicion Is Strong in These
But Evidence Insufficient Men Aided Mc
Namaras and Carried Out Other Plots
for Dynamiting Enemies.
CHICAGO, I1L, Jan. 6. The judgment of the federal district court at Indian
apolis sentencing to prison 30 members of the International Association -of
Structural Iron Workers, was affirmed today by the United States circuit
court of appeals here in 24 cases. Six cases were reversed.
The reversed eases were remanded to the lower court for retrial. The de
fendants in these cases are: Olaf A. Tveitmoe, San Francisco; William McCain,
Kansas City, Mo.; James E. Ray, Peoria, I1L; Richard H. Houlihan, Chicago; Fred
Sherman, Indianapolis, Ind.; William Bernhardt, Cincinnati, Ohio.
The sentence of seven years' penaTuaervitude against Frank M. Ryan,- of Chi
cago, president of the association, whs affirmed. There were 32 convictions on
charges of conspiracy to transport dynamite illegally.
Ryan was the only one of the convicted men present in court when the de
cision was rendered. No effort will be made by the government to compel the re
turn to prison of the men denied retrial pending the hearing of their petition for a
rehearing of the case. If this petition is demed, it was announced by . N. Zoline
of counsel for the convicted dynamiters that an appeal will be taken to the United
States supreme court.
The decision reads in respect to the
appeal of Ryan:
"This plaintiff was president of the
association and its active manager.
Letters written him at various stages
show his familiarity with tie long
course of destroying open shop struc
tures Ryan wrote the letter suggest
ing that reports of expenditures were
discontinued 'while our trouble is on.'
He signed all the checks presented in
ev " nee as used for purchase of ex
plosives Ran's own testimony con
firms the evidence of his complicity "
Clancy t'onsplreay Declared Proved.
Concerning- Eugene A. Clancy, of
San Franciso, the decision states that

and Herbert S Hockin, who is serv

elln Iron Works at Los Angeles and

The appeal of Frank C Webb, of
New York, was rejected on the basis
of letters b him and testimony by
Ortic- McManigal, whose evidence fre
quentlj is referred to by the court.
Conspired With the McXainaras.
Phillip A Cooley, of New Orleans,
member of the executive committee of
the Iron Workers, and John T. Butler,
of Buffalo, second vice president of
the organization, were held to be ac

of appeals declares.
Sympathy and Proof.
In rex ersing the convictions of
Tveitmoe, McCain, Ray, Houlihan,
Sherman and Bernhard, the decision
' We are of the opinion that the evi
dence is insufficient to establish a
prima facie case of co-partnership tn
the offences charged against any of
them Their sympathy and participa
tion in the general objects of tne or
ganization may be assumed from the
evidence, but we are not advised of
proof of their actual participation in

' In reference to Tveitmoe, the fat
that he is not a member of the asso
ciation is not important On the other
hand, his undoubted sympathy with
and co-operation in the great strike
in California does not involve com
plicity in the conspiracy.
"The testimony by McManigal of refer
ences by McNamara to Tveitmoe as the
nld man of the coast who wanted a
Christmas present.' is not sufficient to iden
tic Tveitmoe with the conspiracy.
"The teotimoriy cited against the other
five mer g Tanted a retrial does not re
quire specification except as to Ray and

RESIDIO, Texas, Jan. 6. Except for the crackling of flies where Ae
federals were burning their dead, silence reigned today over Ojisaga,
where for a week the din of battle has resounded.
Federal commanders this morning put soldiers to work rebuilding the
defences of the town, badly battered by the rebels artillery free.
Pancho Villa, it is declared from rebel sources, plans to cut off federal
reinforcements and strike a fresh blow at Ojinaga before the federal garrison
has had time fully to recover from the recent fighting.
The cessation of hostilities on the part of the rebels last night was to
await his coming, it is declared, and he is expected to reach the rebel camp
tonight. Not only is he expected to inspire the men with renewed courage.
but he is said to be bringing two heavy field pieces and 2-400 reinforcements
to join the men now surrounding Ojinaga in the supreme effort to kill, cap
ture or drive out the federals.
According to rebels, the battle is expected to reopen tonight or tomor
row, after Villa has reached the rebefcamp and had a chance to reconnoiter.
