Los Angeles, Cal., July 18. The
original agreement between represen
tatives of labor and capital in Los
Angeles' by which the McXamara case
was to be ended was disclosed in de
tail by Fremont Older, managing edi
tor of the San Francisco Bulletin, who
took the stand yesterday for the de
fense in the briber' trial of Clarence
The Introduction of this testimony
was permitted by Judg? Hutton on the
showing of the defense that it would
prove a lack of motive on the part of
Darrow for the bribing of Juror George
N. Lockwood, but the ruling was made
only after the greater part of the day's
session had been consumed by arguments.
It became evident that the aim of the
defense was to prove that arrange-
ments had been practically concluded
for the MuNamaras to plead guilty sev-!
eral days before the alleged bribing of j
Juror Lockwood was consummated. j
UIVKft TERM OF AGREEMENT.
The original agreement, as outlined i
by Older, contemplated the pleading of j
guilty by James B. McNamara and the
fixing of his punishment at life im-:
prisonment. For this the prosecution !
not only was to dismiss all other cases j
growing out of the dynamiting of the j
Los Angeles Times building, including (
that of John J. McNamara, but to de-;
stroy all evidence then in possession
of the prosecution.
Another clause in the agreement was
that representatives of Los Angeles
capital were to recognize labor unions.
The question has arisen of the un
willingness of District Attorney Frjd-
lericks to consent to the dismissal of
,the charge against John J. lcNamara
1 and It had boen agreed by Mr. Darrow
that if the prosecution insisted upon
i it, the witness said, "J. J." alo would
I be "thrown to the wolves" rather than
that the trial should continue.
JIKORS QUESTION WITNESS.
Just after adjournment yesterday af-
ternoon. Juror M. R. Williams asked i
the witness. Mr. Older: "Did you know
at that time that the McNaniaras were i
"Well, I had no definite or legal
knowledge that they were, but 1 as- j
sumed so," was the reply. j
Here Juror L. A. Leavitt broke ln: '
"What did you mean by throwing J. !
J. to the wolves?'" asked the Juror. J
"Did you recommend that one go free
j and the other be punished, knowing
botn were guilty?
Mr. Older explained his attitude by '
saying that he did not believe in the
doctrine of "an eye for an eye, and a :
tooth for a tooth." He thought that '
Justice could be done without taking !
any more human life.
TOt.l) OF COMPROMISE PLAN.
Summoned to Los Angeles by a tele
gram freni Darrow and Lincoln Stef
feus, the magazine writer, Mr. Older
said that on his arrival here Nov. 23,
1911, he was apprised by Mr. Stefftns
of the plan upon which the latter was
working with prominent employers and
citizens of Ixs Angeles for a truce be
tween labor and capital.
At a subsequent conference with
S'effens and Darrow, the witness said,
he was shown a memorandum of aa
There was a hitch, according to Old
er, and Harry Chandler, a son-in-law
of General Harrison Gray Otis, owner
of the Los Angeieg Times, went to Dis
trict Attorney Fredericks to gain the
latter's consent to the agreement.
ATTITUDE OF DARROW.
After this conference, Mr. Darrow in
formed Older that Fredericks would
not agree to any plan by which J. J.
McNamara could escape punishmeut.
"I contended," continued the wit
ness, whose examination as conduct
ed by Darrow, "(hat Mr. Darrow would
