Krank M. Ryan, president of the Iron
workers' union, and Frank C- Webb ot
New Tork, a union official, helped an
accused dynamiter to escape were made
In the cross-examination of P.yati by the
government at the dynamite conspiracy
It was brought out that George O'Don
nell, an fronworker, after an explosion
on a bridge at Somerset, Mass., tn June,
1008. wns convicted f attempting to kill,
nnd that after his release from the peni
tentiary he escaped service of papers
charging him with dynamiting.
District Attorney Miller charged Ryan
and Webb with helping O'Donnell to
"make a getaway." Ryan denied the
charge, but admitted the union paid sev
eral thousand dollars tn O'Donnell, em
ployed lawyer In. his behalf and con
ducted a correspondence "to steal tho
march on them when O'Donnell got out
on the first charge."
"Why were you and Webb so anxious
to have O'Donnell escape, and why old
you use so muchiof the union' funds to
help him when the union treasury was
impoverished?" aaked Jfr. Miller.
"We felt he was being persecuted; that
was all," answered Ryan.
The witness also said J, .1. McNamara,
now In prison as a dynamiter, helped In
Aaked About Violence.
A head of the Ironworkers' union Ryan
was questioned whether he sanctioned
violence which the government alleges
preceded the "dynamiting campaign'' In
"When you learned through letters that
Philip A. Cooler had knocked a man
down In New Orleans so that the man
had to have a stiver plate put In his head,
did you take any steps to have Cooley re
moved as a member of the union's ex
ecutive board?" asked the district attor
"All I learned wa that Cooley had
been In trouble. I took no steps to learn
tho facts," answered Hyan.
"Cooley wrote he had fixed things with
tho court and had hired two witnesses
to testify falsely so he would escape Jail.
Did you take any action about that"
"I did not." Ryan also denied knowl- ,
edge of any plans by Cooley to arrange j
for explosions on nonunion Jobs at Hour-
ton, Tex., and other southern cities.
