Finally McNa mara and McManigal returned to Chi cago on a train on which there were no detectives. In January, 1911, Raymond Burns met Hockin In Chicago and asked him the whereabouts of McManigal, who, in the meantime, had been to Los Angeles and caused an explosion there in the Llewellyn Iron works. James B. McNamara and McMani gal were arrested on April 12, 1911, and John J. McNamara was arrested on April 22, 1911. Ten explosions oc curred between December, 1910, and the time of the arrests.

Jewel was going to Panama, a an engineer and had urged Hockin to report to Burns. The substance of Raymond Burns 'testimony was: "On November 2nd met Hockin In a hotel lobby in Chicago. He told me that Brye.u, then being hunted on Ihe. Pacific coast, was James B. Mc Namara, and that J. W. McGraw, wanted for explosions in Peoria, 111., was McManigal. 1 located McManigal's house In Chicago and so traced him to the Northwestern station, where, on November 5th, I pointed him out for operatives to follow and whom he conversed with. From time to time, I received information from the hunt ing camp In Wisconsin, "Two weeks later I again met Hockin in Chicago. He told me he wa8 satisfied that John J. McNamara, of the Iron Workers' union and a brother of James B., was doing the dynamiting for what money there was in it and he said he did not like II, for he was afraid he would ruin the union. "Later William J. Burns, Hockin and myself met. William J. told Hockin the result 0f the investigation ,m the Pacific const which was that Olaf A. Tveitmoe and Anton Johann sen, of San Francisco, had furnished Capian and Schmidt and arranged with them to blow up the Times build ing. .- "William J. asked Hockin if he knew anything on this point. Hockin replied he knew nothing about what Tveitmoe did, as that was a matter handled on the coast. Hockin did Say, however, that Tveitmoe and Johann scn had arranged to blow up William J. in Seattle or San Francisco by plac ing a bomb in a room next to his I'oom at a hotel. "Hockin met me again in January. J asked him where McManigal was. He said he did know. That was the t:nie McManigal had gone to Los An K' les to blow up the Llewellyn works." otts and Damon testified about fol lowing the dynamiters to the Con oxer hunting camp. Otts said once he found James B. Intoxicated and "got pretty well acquainted with him." He also said he took photographs of 'hf dynamiters. When the dynamiters b f t Conover he said he did not know where they went. "When you were following them around camp, looking at them through feld glasses and talking to them in ihe belting house did not you know "hat they were suspected of:"' w k,d .D.i m. in by the defense. "I had no information as lo what they were wanted for, but I had an idea," replied Damon. "You were Just obeying orders to report on their doings?" "That's all." "You weren't ordered to make any arrests at that time?" No." CHAFIN WOULD MAKE ARIZONA DRY STATE Tucson, Ariz., Nov. 2 9. K. W.

London, Nov. 20. Coustaiili nople I, might reports the prob ability of a fortnight armistice being signed by Sunday by the peace plenipotentiaries who are negotiating for n tfssnt!oii of hostilities between the Turks and the allies. From the r.ulga- rian side there has been no news today concerning the pence ne- Motlations, except the vague statement that they arc making satisfactory progress. Nothing has transpired as to whether the proposed armistice will affect the whole field of war operations or only the Tchatal.Ia lines. The news received today of the surrender of two divisions of Turkish reserves lo the liulgii- rlans in the neighborhood of De- molica, after severe fighting, shows there are still large Isolat- ed bodies of Turk'sh troops un- accounted for which must be considered In arranging an arin- istice. The allies are said to have large numbers of .aen who are proceedint; in Greek transports from the Gulf of Salonilil, either from GullipoU (icninsula, which separates the 1 lurdani lies from the Aegean sea. or join the ull'ed i.riny at Tchutatja. No news hast been received concerning these transports and the disposal of the men they carry, In event that an armistice Ik arranged, would present some difficulty. Although it Is not saie to assume that an i.rmislicc is in sinht the fact that the negotia- tlonh continue and apparently no time limit has been fixed as to the-duration ,r the existing atis- pension of hostilities tends to- ward the belief that a peaceful solution of the trouble Is fast approaching. a i : (Ilv Mnrnliiu Jo.ii-ni.l Sirill I.ormrd Wlrr.)
