expected to be <*al*ed as a witness.
The younger Burns was ready to cor
roborate the testimony of 1* I*. Jewel,
of Philadelphia, that Herbert S. Hock-
In, when a member of the union's ex
ecutive board, betrayed his teTlow ol*
fleers.
Senator Kern announced that he
probaly would continue with the coun
sel for the defense until the case was
finished, which would probably not be
before mld-aJnuary. This was taken
to mean that Senator Kern would not
attend the opening of congress sh De
cember.
That he "did not care" when he
■wa* arrested for his dynamiting jobs,
was the statement of Ortie McMani
gal, on cross-examination. He was ex
pecting arrest any time, he declared
This feeling of indifference stole over
him following the Ixyb Angeles Times
explosion, said Ortie.
Senator Kern tried to get V ~lar.i
gal to admit that he was in *£- em
ploy of a detective agency eve** as a
dynamiter. Ortie hotly denied ihls as
well as the Implication in Kern's
question that the witness had been in
the employ of the National Erectors
association. The Informer seemed to
be prepared for Kern’s questions and
gave his answers in a loud, clear
voice, without hesitation. He stuck
closely to the details of his confession.

BUILDING CODE IGNORED
IN COWHEY GARAGE
(Uoutluued from Page Oa*l
you were told to put in heavier
beams?” asked Mr. Groesbeck.
"They did not,” was the reply.
"What did they want you to swear?”
"1 don’t know.”
Mr. Johnson said he had never fig
ured what dead load would be on the
beams that gave way; didn’t knpw
the weight of the beams; didn't kn%w
what the dead load shoulfl be. anu
couldn’t say whose fault It was if the
beams were not large enough. He said
he inspected the sand and gravel "In
a casual way.”
He said he believed all the shores
were taken from under the beams that
failed. He could not say positively
"Why did you leave the job? asked
Mr. Groesbeck, referring to Mr. John
son's leaving on Nov. 2.
"Because I. wasn’t satisfied; 1
couldn't do the work as I wanted to."
he replied.
He said that Mr. Cos whey had beef!
very urgent that the lumber should
be taken out from uqder the lower
beams, so that it could be ut*d tor
higher stories.
"Did you tell Mr. Cowhey it wasn't
safe?” Assistant Prosecuting Attorney
Kilpatrick asked.
”1 told him be must be cautious."
Mr. Johnson answered. "I didn't tels
him it wasn't safe to do What we bad
to do.”
"What would you say was the cause
of the failure of the beams?" asked
Mr. Kilpatrick.
"It was caused by the concrete not
having properly hardened, or set, and
by the beams not being properly sup
ported.” wa« the reply.
Mr. Everham testified that one part
of cement was used to 5 3-8 parts of
the mixture of sarid and gravel. He
said that Mr. Cowhey had not supplied
him with shoring enough for one en
tire floor.
"Did vou call Mr. Cowhey’s atten
tion to that?” Mr. Kilpatrick asked.
“Several times,” was the response.
He testified that Oct. 19 Mr. John
son gave him a list of additional shor
ing re< uired. amounting to about 8,000
feet cf lumber. He said that Mr. Cow
hev refused to buy any more, saying
that there was enough on the Job.
"When we come to the bridge, we’ll
cross It.” Is what Mr. Cowhey aald,
according to Mr. ENerham.
Cross-examined by Mr. Groesbeck.
Mr Everham said that there was
plenty of shoring Oct. 15, when the
Learns were poured, and that they
should have set In four weeks of ordi
nary weather, but that it has been a
iittle too cold. Asked if ther© were
sufficient shoring at the time of the
failure of the beams, he replied tha:
he believed the insufficiency was prob
ably one of ihe reasons of the failure.
"You’re making a guess?” asked
Groesbeck.
"That Isn't a guess; there may be
another reason besides that,’’ replifl’
Everham *s,
"Why are you trying to shift the
blame on Cowhev?” asked Groesbeck. 1
Ten not. I’m stating the general
proposition that there wasn’t enough
lumber ”
Weren’t there 150 four-by-fours ou '
the Job. but not in use, when the fall ;
ure came?"
"Positively not.”
It was brought out that the original j
estimate called for SBOO worth of lum- j
her. which was to be supplied by Ms I
Cow hey. Mr. Cowhey supplied, ac
cording to the bills, about $1,200
worth. In addition, Mr. Everham sup- I
jHled'some Oct. 14 an order was
made by Mr. Johnson, Mr. Everham
rtald. for 212 pieces for shoring. Mr.
Cowhey, he said, did not buy any of It,
Examined by Attorney Webster,
Mr. Everham said that the sand and
gravel uxed in 99 per cent of the con
crete structures In Detroit is "lake
run.” He specified the Broadway Mar
ket building and the Hlmtnelhock
structure. Mr. Webster went Into the
sand and gravel matter very thorough
ly, having Mr. Everham define sand
according to the code, and asking him
If the code did not specify that the
gravel must he washed clean.
“Since It all comes from the lake,
we suppose It's washed clean.’' Mr.
Everham answered.
He admitted that he did not know
what proportion of the "lake run” mix
ture was sand and what was gravel.
The end of the Inquest is not in
sight. It Is planned to resume work
at h o’clock Friday and try to flniah
that day.

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS
! DETROIT. Nov. 27—Close: The
•arty Liverpool wheat market showo!
no fear of war troubles. Prtcea were
j lower, which would not have been the
case had foreign grain dealers feared
further complications of a political n»-
, ture.
1 Early wheat news was scarce and
: dealers here were surprised to see an
! advance in Chicago in the face of lpw
er foreign markets It was reported
that wheat offerings svere scanty and
; shorts nervous There was free cov
ering because of a late private cable
quoting firmness abroad. The war sit
-1 uution ia still acute enough to make
» wheat trading pxtremely dangerous,
and those who have been keeping out
of it have plenty of reason to be thank
ful. Both sides are dangerous. The
short may find himself bankrupt any
minute by some extension of the
trouble, while the long is In an equal
ly critical position owing to the like
lihood that the whole matter may be
settled over-night, leaving him with
high-priced property on his hands ani
a declining market.
The weakness In Liverpool was ex
plained by lower offers from this aide,
pressure of Russian and Canadian car

PRODUCE
Indications this morning were that
the Thanksgiving poultry season would
wind up at a little lower level of prices
than had been expected. This is due to
the fact that shipments are getting In
so late that buyers nave adjusted
their trades to earlier conditions and
are out of the market. The fact that
so large a proportion of tile receipts
Is of live stock ts also against the
trade, as retailers are sellers today
and have no time for dressing poultry.
1 rice were maintained early, but It
looked a little shaky for later trade
Seasonable goods of all kinds were ac
tive and steudy and the market as a
whole unchanged.

DIT do not state whether you paid over any money to Mias Free
man or not. If vou have uot. of course. you are not out anything
sgg and can let the affair atand whero it la. If you have there are
several possibilities that suggest themselves before you decide
that you have been buncoed. It is just possible, of courae, that the Hath
burn company has heard nothing whatever of the contract which you made
and that the agent who sold the outfit to you still has the money and has
made no accounting of It. It Is rather unwise to do business with traveling
agents in this manner unless the credentials that are offered are unques
tionable.
1 suggest that you write to the Kathburu company and see what they
havtr to any about the affair before going any further. 1L seems to be
nothing more than a mail order house, working a regular mail orckr busi
ness, but there are some houses in this line which give what they promise
to give. 1 have uot been able to ascertain whether the Kathburn company
is one of these or not, but you had better find out what they will do for
you and where you stand with them before making any charges.
