INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 21.-Equlppcd
with twelve quarts of nitroglycerin, Ortlo
12. McManigal, In December, 1910. went
to Los Angeles, Cat., commissioned to de
stroy the Times auxll.ary plant and by
"adding a few more to tho list of dead,"
to take suspicion off James I). McNa
mara, who had killed twenty-ono per
sons In tho wreck 'of tho Times building
two months before.
McManigal so testified today at tho
"dynamlto conspiracy" trial. He named
men' other than tho McNamaras as hav.ng
inspired the second Los Angolcs plot. He
said ha was prevented from carrying It
out on tho discovery on reaching iios
Angeles that tho auxiliary plant was too
well guarded. Instead he set a bomb In
an iron works plant to explode on
Christmas day.
That was tho "Christmas present" lie
said Olaf A. Tvoitmoc, a labor leader
In San Francisco, had asked for and on
his return east ho stopped off at Labor
temple In San Francisco and on Tvclt
moa being absent ho left this message
with Eugene A. Clancy: "Tell Tvcdmoo
his Christmas present has been deliv
ered." It yas tho samo "Christmas present,"
the government chargos, which Tyeitmoe
later referred to In a letter to Frank M.
Ryan, president of tho iron workers'
union.
Ward C. Glfford of Omaha testified
concerning an interview with W. Bert
Brown.CanEas City, a defendant; at the
time of the tatter's arrest on tho' govern
ments charges of conspiring illegally to
transport explosives.
Glfford sa.d Brown declared he had lost
his job asbuslness agent of the union
because 'ho'' "was opposed" to' violence In
IaOnrjui$l McManl
gal said .lio was "colled down" by John
J. McNamara, because not enough dam
age had been dono at Los Angeles, and
John J. proposed .to send to Los Angolca
by oxpress bombs so regulated that they
would explode when unwrapped, but Mc
Manigal protested, saying the explosions
might occur on the train and kill Inno
cent ' people.
How employes of W. J. Burns, a detect
ive, had the Los Angoles dynamiters "cor
nered" In a room In a boarding house at
Conover, Wis., five months before the
arrests were made and allowed thorn to
escape, was related by McManigal.
McManigal said In November, 1910, tho
month after the Times building was
blown up, ho and James B. McNamara
had been hunting five miles from Con
over, when one day he missed James B.,
and later found him drunk In tho board
ing house talking to detectives. Mc
Manigal said McNamara's description had
"been published1 everywhere and ho had
received mail at Conover, but after a
discussion with tho detectives they man
aged to escape. McNamara the next
month caused another explosion at Los
Angeles, and ten other explosions fol
lowed before the arrests In April, 1911.
On their escape from the Wisconsin
woods McManigal said James B. a sec
ond time attempted to kill him.
"He wanted me to hold up a tin can
and let him shoot a hole through, it,"
satd McManigal. "I told him to put a
hole through himself It he wanted to
kill anybody."
"When I saw James "D. In the company
of the" detectives I thought the game was
up," said McManigal. "I told him he

has recently sprung up In Chicago for
state control of private bunks, led J. H.
Nlcolal, attorney for tho- Italian consul,
to draw attention to whnt Is known as
tho "Garlic bank." Ho described It as
one of the biggest banking swindles In
existence and said no law for the regu.
latlon of private banks should bo made
without Including It.
"The Gnrllo bank' is started." ho said,
"by an Italian whose only asset Is his
Ingenuity. Ho beenmo secretary for a
whole community of Illiterate Italians,
who knpw nothing about American ways
of doing business. Then ho starts a bank.
"As soon as the first deposits como In
the banker Invests thenv In a groceiy.
Tho first decoration of an Italian grocery
Is a string of garlic In tho window. As
he prospers they become more numerous.
"To tho Italian theso strings look llko
real money. Tho grocer becomes famous
for his 'wealth' and depo.lts como pour
ing into him. Ho pays no Interest and
gives no receipts. Then he disappears.
An Investigation follows nnd tl Is found
tho 'garlic banker' has left no address,
and Ills only assets aro found to bs
strings of garlic."
Mr. Nlcolal says In the last two years
as many as twenty of these banks have
failed. Tho depositors did not even know
enough to complain. Hundreds of fam
ilies, ho said, liavo given up all of their
money to them.

LONDON, Nov. 21. The Bulgarian
terms of peace are Impossible, according
to tho Turkish grand vizier, and If they
aro Insisted on the war will continue lie
mado this statement to tho correspondent
of tho Dally Mull at Constantinople to-
uay. Klamll Pasha said:
'l lecelved last night communication
through tho Russian ambassador to Tur

suggest tor an armistice as a preliminary
to tha discussion of the terms ot peace
Tho terms aro Impossible and unless thoy
nro radically altered tno war will con
tinue. ''The Bulgarians ask for tho surrender
of Adrianople, Scutari, Janlna and the

that those demands of thfc allies probably

Thoro has been much talk of a Kuro

totals 8,000, according to official advice
telegraphed by a .special correspondent

Reliable eye-witnesses of tho f(glulug

It appenrs, according to this corrcs
