I?..]; serv?d, unofficial notice had been
given to the brothers thai they would be
?Mii.ti to-morro? before the federal
grand Jury. "I don't think they will say
much." commented Mr. Darraw.
Th.' question was raised to-day whether
a t'l'iivifted felon could bs allowed t?t
testify before tho prand jury a**rd
whether the testimony <.f th?- M?-Na
maras, if i' ware given, would Invalidate
subsequent indi, tinenta.
"My personal opinion oa thel would
not <io tho public an* good," said Law?
1er, when asked about it. "There proo
ably ?s ronslderable law on the robject.''
Testimony Would Do No Good.
Attorney a connected *???" i 111 tho McNa

M? ?amaras might not ho called WOUl 1
!.?? that it Would <1" no ir???.?!, as any OHO

opinion that "e ?'niivii-te?! felon, after
testifying before a grand jury, could j
not pi Into court as a witness ;?> sub?
stantiate what he had told tho grand
Jury."
Lawler had .1 conference to-day with
Malcolm McLaren, agenl of the de?
tective agency which arrested tho Mc
Kamaras and Ortie E. McManlgal. The

[?Tamaras do or not.
Men fairly close to the McNan
said to-day there were small chances
that James 1?. who recaiv?sd ?? iif<- sen
would talk hoftirt- the grand Jury
to an extent that would Implicate aux
one else. "Tho McNamaraa ar.' not
going to imi.ii' ate any one," sai?i one <>i
