K.|u:pr>ed with twelve quarts of nitro-'
lljl silaOt Ortie K. McManlgai, con-!
frsHcd dynamiter. In December, 1910.
went to Los Angeles. CsX. commis?
sioned to destroy tha Times auxiliary
plant, end by "adding s few mere to
the list of dead" to take suspicion off
?SSSes I.. McNamara. who bad killed
twenty-one persona in the wreck of
the Times building- two months before.
Mb Manigal so testified to-day at the
trial of the forty-ftv.- alleged dyna?
mite conspirators against labor em?
ployers of nonunion labor. He named
Steg other than the McNatr.aras as hav
li.g .r..?:-i.-.d tbe second Los Angeles
dvnamlt- plot. He said he was pre?
vented from carrying it out by the dis?
covery, on reaching Loa Angeles, that
ti.e auxiliary plant was too well guard?
ed and illuminated at nigbt. Instead,
he eet a bomb In an iron works plant
to explode on Christmas day.
i That was the "Christmas present,"
he said, Olaf A. Tveltmoe, a labor union
official In San Francisco, had asked for.
McManlgai and James H McN'amara
bad been hiding In the Wisconsin
woods, McManlgai said, like a pair of
pirates, each with a red handkerchief
about his head. In conformity with the
game laws, and a rifle over his should?
er, when a number of detectives ap?
peared at their lodging house. Elud?
ing tbe detectives, they came to In?
pasted Ovar Kseapi
So elated was John J. McN'amara
ever the escape of bis brother that ha
proposed that McManlgai start at once
for Loa Angelea to do some dynamittag.
"James B. McN'amara said he would
Ilka to go out and do It. but John J.
objected." said McManlgai, "J. J. say?
ing they were 1 yoking for a man of hie
description on the coast, and It would
be a good idea for a stranger to do the 1
Jobs and get back East as soon aa
possible, and then the authorities
would think their man was still la
I/o? Angeles."
Then McManlgai quoted ^directions

gument i? th? cttr of Sldna Allen,

Thornton L. Maaole. vraa concluded at
( o'clock this afternoon and the case
was* riven to the j ury. At ? o'clock
to-night no agreement had been
reached as to a verdict, and court waa
adjourned over until to-morrow.
Three speeenes were made in the
eaa* up to the dinner hour. The first,
thirty minutes in length, was made
i by B. TV. Straa, Jr.. for the defense.
In which he set forth the three
grounda upon which fcbc- Common-1
wealth bases its demand for a verdict,
In the first degree, and upon which
? theories instructions are based. The'
first is upon the ground of conspiracy.:
in which the contention is that the.
prisoner is guilty If he was a party to'
j that conspiracy, second, that if the
! prisoner was present and Intentionally'
aided and abetted the perpetrators of
the murd-r: and. third, if the fatal shot
was intentionally flred by the prisoner,
i These several ground? were discussed,
and from th>- evidence it was argued
, teat neither was tenable. The evl
I derwe was gone into rjuite fully and'
I applied to sustain the speaker's view, j
I W. 3. Poage. for the Commonwealth,<
j was the next speaker, and in a Jra- ,
matically delivered argument of one ?
I hour and fifteen minutes asked for a'
I verdict of marder in the first degree, j
1 He alluded to the fact that the de- j
I fenae had appealed for symokray on
1 acexeunt of the wife and children of
the prisoner, saying that the widows,
made and children rendered fatherless
by the unlawful sad malicious acts of j
the defendants far outnumbered those!
who would suffer by the prisoner's ex- j
plating bts crime la the electric chair.!
BiitM few Pefe? e.
Jjdlre J. C. Buxton followed ?r. !
Poage. for the defense. He paid a
graceful acknowledgment to the pre?
siding Judge, the court officers and the
counsel for the prosecution for the
courtesies shown him. He. like all
the other attorneys, gave most of his
Ume to a discussion of the conspiracy
j theory, digressing occasionally to make
ip?lnts and give Impression* oa ether
phases ef the case and arguments
which had been made. He stated that
he would not have permitted the chil?
dren of tne prisoner to come ?nto the
court, but that the mother nad no
one with whom she rould lease
them, and that In this, the dir? tr.al
of her husband, she felt it her duty ifl
be with and sustain htm. G>lng ts
the beautiful flaxen-hatred girl, about
four years old. sitting near in ner
mother's lap. he laid hia hand >n her
head and aaid: "The Saviour said, of
such Is the kingdom of heaven.' "
Mr. Buxton in detail took up the
evidence t> sustain his theories .ad
to show fr >m facts and circumstances,
as well a* statements of witnesses.*,
that there could have keen no conspir?
acy He also referred to the tn?*o?
s latencies and contradict ions of the
?Votnmonwealth'S witnesses, showing'
that the proaeeiitl >n relied on s part
of the eiklence of some of the w.t- ;
tresses and repudiated other parts.
Ills close was most impressive as he
recited reverently to the jury the,
prayer at the end of the communion
services "Direct us, O Lord. In all our

ing a stranger, made a fine impression

made a strong argument, commenting

London, November 21.?The formal
suspension of the Turkish-Balkan war
proved only for a day. Turkey rejected
the Balkan terms for an armistice ap
I-arently fjefore the plenipotentiaries
had time to come together at Hadem
Klami! Pasha, the Grand Visler, de-j
clared that the allies' overture* werej
?impossible." He ordered the com-j
mander-in-chlef to continue fighting
"with the help of the Almighty" until
reasonable and moderate conditions
*-ere proposed.
This decision came as an utter sur?
prise, and diplomats are not wholly
convinced that the Ottoman troop* will
really take up arms again in the
cholera stricken trenches of Tcha
While the Bulgarian conditions, for
Bulgaria ai acting as the mouthpiece
for the allies, were extreme, stlpu
: lating the surrender of Adrlapople
and Scutari, both of which strong?
holds are making a historic defense,
as weU as the cession' of all the terrl
J tory except a narrow strip above Con?
stantinople, these conditions were ad
i vanced as overtures; In other words,
I they were apparently put forward as a
I basis for negotiations.
The Porte treated them as an ultl- j
! matum. and this perhaps Is the Ori?
ental method of beginning negotia?
tions, designed to induce the enemy
further to show his hand. A Balkan
diplomat in London pointed out to?
night that these terms were submitted
merely as an answer to Turkey's press,
ing and repeated demands for an ar?
mistice, and eald:
"It ts practically certain that the
rejection will result in a more active
ajid determined resumption of hos?
tilities. Probably ail the allied troops
will now refuse to treat with Turkey:
until they are in a position to dictate I
perhaps sterner terms in the capital
ef Che Sultan."

the allies, but at the same time he la

The olBcial announcement of the
Portes decision with regard to the
j armistice Is so follows:
J "The Bulgarian premier has ad?
dressed to the Ottoman government a
document containing conditions for an
armistice, which were communicated
to-day to the Council of Ministers, and
were considered to be unacceptable.
"Consequently, and likewise in new
of the fact that the commander-!n

Only Coast Points in Jamaica
Have Been Heard
Shipping Is Destroyed, and
Towns Are Laid in
Kingston. Jamaica, November 21.?
! The official estimate of the dead in the
hurricane and tidal wave which visit?
ed the western part of Jamaica, places
the num-'er at more than 100 in the
coast towns alone. Details, which are
gradually coining in. indicate great
devastation In the western section. j
j Practically all lighters and coasting
sloops and other small vessels around j
Greenbay Island. Lucca and Savanna;
La Mar foundered or were demolished,
and a large proportion of the crews
were drowned. Many persons living
in these towns lost their Uves in the
coilapse of building*.
The houses of the American colony
at Montego Bay' were badly damaged,
but no casualties are reported. The
I governor-general of Jamaica, Sir Sid?
ney Oliver, reached Montego Bay to?
day and found conditions so direful
that he Immediately ordered the dis?
patch of several hundred addition*,
tents and large quantities of food
supplies to Kingston. The railway
lines are now working within twenty
miles of Montego Bay. but the tele?
graph lines are si 111 disorganised.
The tidal wave at Savanna La Mar
was the highest In a century. One
coasting vessel was washed half a
mile up the main street. Fully >o per
cent of the houses were blown down
by the hurricane. The two principal
1 hotels were unroofed, as were all the
churches and the railway depot.
The sea swept over the streets tn
the lower section of the town, and
tows of dwellings were piled up tn a
i gigantic heap at the mouth of a gaily,
j where the greatest namber of dead
bodies wer? recovered. An American
tourist who happened to be In that
town during the hurricane said forty
i bodies bad ^r-een recovered up to the
j time of his departure.
At Green Bay Inland, eight miles
southwest of Lace*, the American said
there was much wreckage ashore and
