ing dynamite about in a market
basket was the Way Edward K. Clark,
an Iron worker, testifying at the
dynamite conspiracy" trial today,
said lie arranged to blow up non
union jobs.
Clark, an official of a local union
nt Cincinnati, pleaded Kuilty at tht
beginning of the trial of the forty-live
men accused of complicity with the
McNamnra brothers in the illegal
transportation of explosive.
In detailing his confession on the
witness stand he told of personally
blowing up work on a railroad bridge
across the Miami river at Dayton, on
May a, 1HOH, and of leaving behind
an umbrella that bore his initials.
Clark aid officials of the Inter
national Association of Bridge am;
Structural Iron Workers induced him
to do dynamiting, once he said, while
inspecting work In Cincinnati, Presi
dent Frank M. Ryan pointed to a
railroad bridge across the Ohio river
and said:
"There would be a good place io
put a shot."
lief ore that, the witness said that
Herbert S. Hockin, secretary of the
union, arranged to supply him with
dynamite.
"We had had some correspondence
with J. J. MeNamara at Indianapolis
about union conditions in Cincinnati,
when in May, 1D08, Hockin appeared
mid told me he was going to spend
some money there," said Clark. "He
took me to Cumminsvillc, a suburb,
where he introduced me to Kdward
Campbell, who was to supply Ayr i
mite. Hockin said 1 was to receive
$100 for the Dayton job. I returned
to the place that night with a market
basket. Campbell gave me fifty half
pound sticks of dynamite. Hockin
wanted me to take William Bernhart,
i local official to Dayton, but 1 said
J would do the Job alone,
"Having kept the dynamite in my
house thut night, I took it the next
(lay to Dayton, where 1 placed it on
a br.dgo over the Miami river. It was
raining hard, so I left my umbrella
over the bomb to protect.it, lit the
fuse and departed. i
"The next (lay In Cincinnati, Hockin
did not appear anxious to pay me the
$100. He had a newspaper account
of the explosion. Finally he nave rue
$" on the street.
"When the question of blowing up
the Harrison avenue viaduct in Cin
clnnati came bli. Hockin said he was
not (joins to let me do it, as lie--Samara
and Hyan wore not pleased
with the way 1 had done the Dayton
Job. 1 had left behind an umbrella
with my Initials on it, he said, and
thev were likelv to catch me.
"Uut he sent me out to Campbell's
for more dynamite. 1 took it home tn
a basket and the next day, utter pack
ing it in a telescope case, delivered
it bv appointment to Hockin and an
other man at Fifth and Vine streets.
That was in August, 1908, und the
explosion on the Harrison avenue via
duct occurred on August tith. Camp
nell had procured more dynamite at
the time be got the last lot for me,
going about lour miles from the place
we met h m to get It. Two more ex
plosions occurred in May, 1909, and
another In August, all on the bridge
which Hyan had pointed out, but 1
diii not do tht m.
"I went into dynamiting then, lis
tening to others. I was Inflamed with
the foolish idea that was a good
way to carry on u campaign against
non-union work. 1 certainly knew 1
was committing a crime."
Kdward Camp.heJ!, mentioned by
Clark, testified that he formerly
worked in a stone quarry and bad
been used to buying dynamite. He
said Hockin urranged for him to
drive out to a powder magazine to
buy the explosive and paid him foi
the livery hire. On cross examiantlon
by attorneys for the defense, Clark
admitted that he had been convicted
on numerous charges but denied he
ever had been indicted for highway
robbery or had withheld the union's
funds.
Joseph B. Shafer, of the Cincinnati
police department. ..testified concern

Xamnra's mother the day alter Mo

family, Schafer said he found a place
in the woodshed near the MoNamarn

'Rochester, N. Y., Nov. 15. A fight
against the administration of Presi
dent C.ompers, of the American Fed
eration of Labor, is to lie taken up
next week by socialist delegates to
the convention. The delegates of the
radical wing number eighty-four, ac
cording to J. Mahior, Haines, of Phil
adelphia, national campaign manager
of the socialist party, who will lead
the fight. This group constitutes less
than one-fourth of the delegates, but
socialists say many will come under
the banner when the fight opens.
The first skirmish is expected wben
the committee on resolutions reports
the resolutions of Delegate Duncan,
of the United Mine Workers, provid
ing for the election of officers of the
federation by a referendum vote.
The Atlanta convention of the. fed
eration adopted a resolution favoring
this method of election, provided II
was found upon Investigation by offi
cers to be practicable. The report of
the executive council Indicated that
fiftv-two national and International
unions affiliated with the federation
had declared against the proposal and
twentv-three unions had favored It.
Socialists fiiv that officers of the
federation, including President C.om
pers. are opposed to election by refer
endum and that if the plan Is adopted
the defeat of President C.ompers and
his associates of the executive council
is certain.
An unconfirmed rumor has it that
Duncan McDonald, of the United Mine
Workers. is to be the opponent of
Samuel flompers.
The mining trades department held
n brief session today to organize.
Charles If. Mover, of the Western
Federation of Miners, presided.

1 to depend upon the outcome of the
iegal controversy which opened in
earnest today before the supreme
court of the United Slates. Edmund
W. Burke filed before the court bis
printed argument in favor of a claim
to a portion of the land in controver
sy, scathingly arraigning the South
ern Pacific llailroad Company, also
fighting for the property.
The case will be argued orally Jan
uary tlth. The land in controversy in
this particular case In the oil fields of
southern California. The Southern
Pacific claims it under a land grant
act and Interior department patents
which contained the provision, "ex
cluding and excepting all mineral
lunds, should any such be found in
the tract."
The validity and effect of this ex
ception is receiving unusual attention
because of its having been included
in the land grants to other railroads
tor decades. Air. Ilurkc contends that
all oil land is mineral laud.
According to the brief filed today,
the interpretation of the exception
will determine the Southern Pacific's
claim to oil land worth more than the
entire railroad itself. The brief
charges the railroad with attempting
to control the mineral development of
California through dummy corpora
tions and suggests that If it would
slop this it would have more time to
devote to the carrying of passengers
and freight, "Just as it has greatly
enhanced its vthie since the few years
it wus relieved (it the yollucal con
trol of California."
The railroad, it Is contended, would
have the courts hold land to be more
valuable for "agricultural purposes
than for mining when the land has
hundreds of oil wells spouting forth
their riches."

lines lo watch the final stages of Hi"
drama of Turkey's graceless exit from
Europe after six centuries of misrule,
persecution, wasted opportunities and
commercial stagnation.
"European Turkey, including even
Kuincba, is regarded as hopelessly
lost and the little emotion of which
Turkish character is capable Is deviV
cd to shedding a few mild tears over
the possibility of posing even a portion
of Constantinople. Lor the rest, 1U
proceeds as usual.
"Whatever Europe may arrange til
distributing the spoils In European
Turkey will not affect the Ottoman
population who already have made
their own plana for the future. This
great exodus trom Thrace Is not the)
temporary move of a muss of terri
fied refugees to escape the ravages of
war, but a general return of people
to the land whence they sprung.
"All to whom I have spoken reply:
" 'We w ill never return to Europe,
we have had enough of constant wars,
mnrsacres. disturbances, extortion anil
persecution. We only seek where we
can dwell In peace.'
"All the reports from the front show
that the Turkish army is disorganize, I
to such an extent that it is now an
open secret that members of the ex

"The Bulgarian advance necessarily
has been slow, as the line has been
destroyed. The enemy is prepared for
his final move with customary curs
and precision so that when the blow
falls It will crush once for all the fee

Thrace."
