Indianapolis. Dec-. 2S.?Tin- United
States government with a tern and de?
cisive swiftness, today took into its
possession union labor officials con?
victed of conspiracy in promoting ex?
plosions on non-union work through?
out the land, of aiding in the destruc?
tion which brought loss of life at Los
Angeles. Cel., and of carrying on a
reign of terror declai^d to he unpar?
alleled in the history of the country.
Almost the entire executive staff of
the international Association of
Bridge and Structural Iron Workers
was convicted. Only two officials of
that union now remain out of jail. At
the head of the list of convicted
stands Frank M. Ryan, the president.
It was of this union, with 12,000
members, that John J. McXamara was
secretary-treasurer while he conduct?
ed the dynamltinga out of which the
present conviction grew.
Today's convictions, coming on a
scale unprecedented in a federal
court, were an aftermath of the kill?
ing of 21 persons in the blowing up
of the Los Angeles Times building,
October 1. 1910, McXamara and his
brother, James B., The Times dyna?
miter, are convicts in California.
Hyan, and his fellow officers are
awaiting sentence. Two of those af?
fected were not affiliated with the
Iron Workers union, but they were
found guilty of joining with the Iron
woik?rs in promoting the conspiracy.
One of these Is Olaf A. Tveltmoe of
San Francisco, a recognized labor
leader on the Pacific coast, the tes?
timony against them was that he aid?
ed in causing explosions at Los Ange?
les, wrote letters about them and re?
ferred to them as "Chrlstnus pres?
ents" after the fatal Times explosion,
and that he aided in concealing evi?
dence wanted In California. He is sec?

ed um having appropriated out of the
union funds $1,000 a month which
McXamara pair for explosions.
Herbert S. Hockin. who resigned
as secretary of the union a few weeks
ago, and branded as the "lago of the
conspiracy," helping to form the con?
spiracy plots and employing Ortie E.
McManlgal to carry them out, while
afterwards "betraying his fellow con
splrutors," to promote his own inter?
ests, stands among the most promi?
nent of those convicted. He figures al?
most daily In the testimony.
Sixteen minutes was all the time re?
quired by the court to receive the Jury,
reud Its verdict of "38 guilty and two
not guilty," and dismiss the jurors.
Tha* verdict brought to an end the
historic three months' "dynamite ? on

cases of Herman O. Selfferi of Mil?

out of 40 to be adjudged not guilty,
the government charges about dyna?

have been sustained.
The verdict was banded to the clerk,

Ma> Turn Utility Over to States.
Washington, Dec. 28.?Attorney
General Wlckersham will consider the
question of turning over to various
State authorities the evidence taken
at the dynamite trial for such action
as local authorities might wish to take
toward the prosecution of the con?
victed men on eha:ges of being acces
s tries to murder.
According to department of justice
officials it is possible that sentences
for the federal conviction migTit be
suspended until the men were tried in
State courts, or after serving part of
their sentences, they might then be
turned over to the State authorities.
Kern Prepared to Appeal.
Washington, Dec. 28.?Senator
Kern, of counsel for the defendants,

"and will he made to the Cnited States

Further than that, Senator Kern
declined to comment.
Senator Kern does not expect to
continue as counsel for the convicted
men in the dynamite cases, because of
the pressure of his duties in the sen?
ate. It was said today that Mr. Kern,
when he associated himself with coun?
sel for the defense, did not expect the
trial would continue long enough to
keep him away from congress.

Most n< tlceabie of all changes per?

It is shortened, three whole clauses at
the end being dropped, and the die
Con made smoother. "Deliver us from
evil" becomes "Deliver us from the
evil one," and closes the prayer. Even
the custmoary "Amen" is omitted.
As revised the Lord's Prayer reads:
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hal?
lowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom
come. Thy will be done, as in Heaven
so on earth. Give us this day our
daily bread. And forgive us our debts
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And bring us not into temptation, but
deliver us from the evil one.
Adam and Eve, named as the found?
ers of the human race in the King
James version, give way to "man"
and "woman" in the new version.
Such words as "loveth" and "leadeth"
are replaced by "love" and "lead."
"Underworld" is substituted for
"hell." Adam is eliminated in this

The new revised version gives a
broader significance to God's mercy.
