Senator Kern, for the defense, cross examined MoManigal. "Was the pay you received from the Me.N'amaias your motive In causing w many explosions?" asked Senator Kern. "No: It was not money. Herbert 1). Hockin. when he first started no into the dynamiting business, terrorized me, saying If I do not do it, he would prevent me from getting work. Tl". n I was prompted hy a foolish notion that it was for the good of the iron worker' union. My mind was In flamed with the idea that it would build up the union." JIcManlgul admitted he nad been arrested three time, twice for Uireney and once for disorderly conduct. "After the Los Angeles Times build ing was blown up, when you and James H. were hunting In the woods in Wisconsin, you say he admitted to you that he deliberately killed the twenty-one persons; that he was a printer, and that he knew be would kill some one when he put the bomb in the Times building and yet you con tinued to associate with him?" "Yes, I did." VcManigal had said that when J. .1. McXamara. secretary of the union, planned "wholesale explosions," In cluding the blowing up of Los Angeles city, he was afraid the "executive hoard would cut off his allowance." "Now, you say McXamara, In order to get more money, proposed to steal jSir.O.OOo by killing the treasurer of the automobile races ut the speedway in Indianapolis and yet you still kept company with these men who planned the murder?" "Yes. I did." McManigaJ told in detail how much he was paid for each "job." "When you caused the explosion in the Llewellyn iron plant in Los An c.dos in December, 1 HI (I, how much did you charge for It?" "I got $.125, which Included my ex penses."

EIGHT KILLED 11 INJURED BY Dry Starch House Blows Up at Waukegan Causing Much Damage to Property and Several Casualties. (Il.v Von, Ins .l.itirnitl Six-Hal Iriiurtl Hire.) Waukegan. III.. Nov. 25. An ex plosion which wrecked the dry starch house of the Corn Products Con,. pany's plant this afternoon killed be tween three and twelve workmen. In jured twenty-seven others, several of whom will die, and caused about $100,000 property damage. Uncer tainty tiR to Ihe number of dead was caused by Inability of firemen to search the ruins. Charles Kbert, superintendent of the plant, said that only three had been killed and twenty-seven injured by the explosion. , Mr. Kbert admits It was possible that additional workmen not em ployed in the starch house might have been caught in the explosion, but said this was improbable. Nearly all of the workmen killed or Injured were Polish or Austrian, and they wore on the company's pay roll by numbers and not by mimes. The explosion tore the two-story frame top from the five-story build ing and scattered bits of it for fifty yards In all directions. The body of one man killed was blown across the Chicago & Xorth western railroad right-of-way to the hillside in Oak wood cemetery. All of the Injured were coated with starch which had to be washed off before surgeons fould treat their wounds. Although the fire appeared under control tonight, the firemen said thev expected it would continue to burn tomorrow with the possibility, that new explosions would start it a fresh. Martin Slater, of Peoria, HI., assist ant superintendent of the plant, was among those seriously injured.

AND EXPLOSION POWDER EnPLUUtu' WHEN TRAIN IS WRECKED T TURKEY HOPES TO EUROPE Nations Deny Mobilization of Armies with Suspicious Promptness, Indicating Ser ious Situation, FIGHTING CONTINUES AROUND ADRIAN0PLE Servia Refuses to Answer De mands of Austria Until War is Concluded; Ottoman Dip lomats Slow to Arrive, ll- Mnrnillg .In,, nail Siinkd I .enoeil Wire. I . London. Nov. 2a. The extreme anxiety manifested by all European governments to deny reports of war like preparations and to represent the political situation as peaceful und sat-IsfactiH-y Is In Itself an indication on how slender a. thread the issues of peace and war in Knrope now hang. The danger arises not ulono from the conflicting interests of Austria, Servia and the other powers, but from the possibility that Turkey, following lha traditional policy of profiting b the embroilment of the gnat powers, limy adopt an irreconclliahle attitude In the peace negotiations. Heyond the fact that the plenipo tentiaries met today, nothing Is yet known not even whether an armis tice has been arranged. There ap pears to be a, suspension of opera tions lit the Tchalalja lines, appar ently by tacit consent rather than by fin mill agreement. The semi-official Bulgarian news paper. Mir, editorially volets the gov ernmental irritation at Turkey's dila tory methods of negotiation and ac cuses the porte of deliberately n.iml nating delegates from remote points in order to gain time. This probably refers to osman Ni zam! Pasha, the ambassador to nor mally, who only arrived at Constanti nople from llerlin today. in the diplomatic field the impor tant reports are that Servia declines to reply to the Austrian demands un til the war is concluded and that ler niany has not undertaken to mediate between Austria and Russia. The news that Servia is throwing further obstacles in the way of the Austrian representative- in .search' of Prochaska. ihe Austrian consul at Prisrend, is another disquieting fea ture. Fighting continues around Adri- anonle. where the besieging loreos me leoorted to have drawn their in- vtslim; circle to within two-thirds of a mile of the town. hi ssi Di:xii:s wahi.iki: MII.JT.AltY I'KI- l' MI XTIONS.

"The first of these nuesllons," he said, "some of which are In their In famy. Is the safety and efficiency of m'nlUR operations.
