TRAL WILL CLAIM M'NAMARAS' PLEAS HAD BIRN AR'RANGED BEFORE ALLEGED BRISING. SIEFNS TO TESTIFY Well * Known Newspaper Man Will Give Testimony That MoNamaras Had Arranged to Plead Guilty Short Time Before Alleged Bribery Meet. ing With Franklin Was Held. Los Angeles, June 3.-That Clarence S. Darrow, the former McNamara at torney, will make his principal defense on the assertion that the McNamara brothers had agreed to plead guilty before the alleged jury bribing was made evident today. 'A special ses alon of the county grand Jury for the purpose of Investigation of alleged cor ruption of jurors by the McNamara defense .was the only other develop ment today in the trial of Darrow. ThJe grand jury session was dealsg nated by a member of the prosecution as a "fishing expedition" which might result in the return of several Indlct ments against persons charged with complicity in the alleged unlawful op erations of the McNamara defense. In continuing this afternoon his cross-examination of Bert H. Franklin, former detective for the MoNamara defense, Chief Counsel Rogers asked Franklin concerning his meeting with Larrow and Lincoln Steffens in a local hotel, account of which was given on direct examination, that Darrow showed him the list of names compris ing the ninth special venire of Mc Namara talesnen, including the names of Lockwood and Kruger. Mr. Rogers said at the conclusion of the session that Lincoln Steffens and others would testify that the arrange ment for the pleas of the McNamara brothers had been concluded before the evening of November 25, 1911, the time of the meeting testified to by Franklin. Much of the session was devoted to the conditions surrounding Franklin's immunity for giving evidence against D)arrow. Franklin testified that the only statement Assistant Attorney Ford had made to him regarding im munity 'was "Bert. we do not want you: we want those behind you." When the trial was resumed this afternoon, Attorney Frank F. Fowler attempted to make a statement to the court. Bert H. Franklin, on direct exami nation last Friday, testified that A. K. Kruger, a talesman in the Mc Namara case, had told him that Fowler had approached him with the view of purchasing his vote as a juror. Judge Hutton refused to allow Fow ler to address the court. The prose cution vigorously protested against any statement by Fowler in the presence of the jury. The first question asked Franklin on the resumption of his cross-examl nation by Chief Counsel Rogers con cerned a conversation between Frank Iln and Fowler after the Friday ad journment. Franklin ewas asked whether he had told Fowler that he would not believe Kruger on oath. Franklin replied that he had said something like that. The witness was then questioned as to his knowledge of the arrange ments for his plea of guilty '' the bribery of Juror Robert F. Bain uuJ his subsequent fine of $4,000. WHITMAN COLLEGE WINS.

These are the elements which make Miseoulian printing different from other print. ing. The price which you pay for this work is the lowest figure consistent with good work. You got better value for your money than you do when you go to a "cheap" shop.
