Darrow, chief of counsel for the de fense, in v. statement dictated to the Associated Press. Mr. Darrow'a itstement Is ns follow : "No motive of any sort entered into the disposition of the McNamara cast except the welfare of the men accus ed of murder. "Believing, as I did, that the action taken would save the lives of the ih- I Hurt rwt itinru rlirht In refuse it than a doctor would have to fureheu ati operation upon a patient to gave rtla, life. "A eOuitmittee of Los Angeles peo ple, beginning work November 20, .marie .it ' possible to accomplish the result. Their suggestions were brought to me first by Mr. Steffen on that day and every day thereafter as mat ters proceeded until the. final deter mination. "How much their efforts had to do with the state's uttorney t cunnot tell, but it was at their Intercession that negotiations were begun hy at torneys for the defense. I expected the final action every day after this movement was commenced and Jt,w taken the first minute that an under Handing; was reached because of Inn imminent danger we were in for two weeks of having the matter become public property and thus making the end difficult to achieve." Requests for an authoritative state ment on the situation rattier man In terviews, crowded. Attorney Darrow'a desk throughout the day and the fore going statement he said w;as dictated to unsvver nil of them. The statement In itself appeared to Indicate the complexity of condi tions. The local political situation, in which Job Ilarriman of counsel for the defense, is running for mayor on the socialist ticket, with the election only three duys off, was tuxen into consideration, though iiarriman's own position was that the trial was not n local question and should make no (inference. The recent arrest of Bert H. Frank lin, an Investigator employed by ths defense on a charge of bribery, was luggestcd us having possible bear ing, and Ihl.i was repudiated by the defense whose attorneys pointed out that negotiations wore under way be fore the Incident occurred. In this particular, as to negotia tions, they were confirmed by Dis trict Attorney John D. Fredericks, ho, in a statement today, dated the beginning of negotiations as far back a July. The defense added a knot, however, by stating that It made no proffers as early as that time. As far as the defense Is concerned, yesterdays action In which James II. lli'Nainara pleaded guilty to murder In connection with the Los Angeles Times explosion and fire which cost twenty-one lives, the plea of guilty entered by his brother, John J. Mr Nmniira, to having dynamited the Llewellyn Iron Works, was again de clared to have been brought about through the agency of a committee of Influential citizens and tonight members of a faction which Is de nouncing the movement itself agreed heartily that the result was accomp Ushe, In this way. This fact turned oul to lie part of the grievance, on jhe ground that no representative or labor was on the committee which aided In bringing to pass an event fonsldered or infinite moment to la bor organizations throughout the, ''tiled States. Kdward N. Nockles, secrelury of the Chicago Federation of Labor, ahout tin; only out-of-town labor of ficial or consequence on the ground, Jhsolntily refused tonight to discuss the Interviews and resolutions emit natinjf j (uaiithles from labor or- '"'ligations In the east.

Tho Jlldg p may hoar and the district al- torncy may muke recommendations as to the penalty to be Imposed. Dis trict Attorney Fredericks eaid today that he had not decided whether he would ask for clemency but he add ed: "When a man pleads guilty, par ticularly In this case, It saves the state a great deal of money and work. I lie state is always ready to take thin Into consideration and Is inclined to look with leniency upon the offen der." While Judge Hordwcll refused to commit himself In any way, persons close to him said he was pleased with the manner in which the trial had terminated. Friends of Attorney Darrow fear that he Is on tho verge of a physical breakdown. In the last few nights he has tossed about restlessly In his sleep and he has eaten but little. Ilia face today was white and haggard. Never before in his life he admitted, had he encountered so terrible u strain. He was optimistic about bin health, however, declaring be had faith in his strong constitution. Feeling that he had (lone bis best for the McNamaras, Attorney Dar row received In bitter silence the at tacks which he assumed to be aimed at him In comments of the labor lead, ers. "They will all understand In time," he-said. "I never told Samuel (lump ers or any one else that .1. H. Mc.N'n mar.'i was Innocent. I ahvHVs hud be lieved however, hat John J., had noth ing to do with the Times disaster, though I learned of his connection with the Llewellyn explosion. What ever information came to Mr. (lump ers about the guilt or Innocence of Iho McNamaras, probably came from Un accused men themselves." Attorney Darrow declared further more that he originnllydid not want to defend the McNamaras, but had been persuaded to do so by labor leaders. Even on learning of their guilt later, he said, he felt he was right in saving human life. Attorney Darrow does not believe In capital punishment. Most difficult of all attacks to bear it was apparent was , that which In volved the McNamara defense fund. Attorney Darrow confirmed Ihc fact that $1 SKI, (inn had been raiser! for the two brothers and had been at his dis posal. Confronted with the statement that labor leaders expected that much of this would bet-refunded, he ans wered that he could not see how it could he done. "Money flies fast, very fast." Tie said, "and in a case like this it has wings, (if course the trial to date did not cost much, but preparation for the handling of witnesses and evi dence exhausted much of the funds. A greater part already has been spent and an accounting will be rendered as to every detail. We have been up against It for funds right along. We have been wondering for some time how we could ever get very far with the means at our disposal." The McNamara brothers spent the day quietly. They wrote many let ters and walked abofit the Jail cor ridors for exercise. They read the newspaper accounts of yesterdays events and, according to Jailers, their cheerful nlr was in nowise affected thereby. SAVS MF.X AKF IOWX: WILL NOT KICK THFM Chicago.

They have done Irreparable wrong to a righteous cause and now that they have pro claimed their guilt, the hand of or ganized labor will not be raised to stay the punishment which their crime so Justly deserves."

The union men said it had been their Intention to stop the exhibition of the film, but they learned that the contract with the moving picture company would not permit this so they took significant action in cutting out a prominent feature.

In the house, however, the proceed ings will be enlivened with n speech by Representative Martin W. LltlU. ton of New York on a question of personal privilege. Mr. Littleton who Is a member of the special committee of Inquiry In to the I'nited States Steel corporation will attack Henry It. Martin, secre tary of the so-called Anti-Trust League, charging that Martin has de ceived the committee at to his pur pose in agitating the invsllgatlon and is In league with David Ijimar, a bear broker in Wall Ktreet, to depm-s Vnlted Htntes Steel stock.

An early caucus of the house ma jority will soon be culled. Democratic members of the house still are unsatisfied with Hie situation existing with relation to the steel trust Inquiry and the differences of (.pinion as to procedure In the gov ernment's suit against the steel cor poration. Inasmuch as the dillir ences between Chairman Slunley and Representative Littleton, a democrat ic member of the committee, relate to procedure and not to principle, som of the leaders bine hope that tli matter will be sufficiently adjusted before there Is ally division in the parly itjr the matter on the floor of the bouse, Speaker Clark and Majority Leadtr I'nderwood have hope that when all the committee members arrive the committee Itself can settle upon a mode of procedure. Representative Littleton on Mon day In Ills speech before the bouse wlil devote himself particularly to the attacks made upon himself personal ly and not upon Hie committee.
