to repair his engine. While he was
making the repairs a spark blown by
the wind hit the big gaa bag. causing
an explosion which destroyed both the

Beauty Says the Chief Witness
Against Senator Revealed
Plot at Dinner
Witness Terrell Causes Stir by
Statement That Bribe Money
Was Available
CHICAGO, 111., Oct 5.—A beautiful
woman took the stand today as chief
witness in behalf of Senator Lorlmer.
She was the mysterious witness often
hinted at during the progress of the
investigation and she gave evidence
intended to show that the man who
has given the strongest testimony
against Senator Lorimer was, influ
enced by expected gains to make the
revelations he has given.
Attorney Hanecy summoned Miss
Katherine A. Woods of East St. Louis
to rebut testimony of Representative
Charles A. White. She declared in the,
fall of 1909 White took her to dinner,
and declared he was writing a history
of his life and the occurrences in the
legislature, and expected to make a for
tune out of it, and that Lorimer and
his friends would have to pay him
enough to keep him for life or ho would
make It hot for them.
Lee O'Neil Browne, Democratic lead
er of the Illinois house of representa
tives, who is under Indictment in con
nection with the election of William
Lorimer to the United States senate,
will be called to the witness stand
before the Lorimor congressional com
The same ruling was made by the
committee today In regard to State
Senator John Broderlck, now under In
dictment on the charge of having
bribed State Senator D. W. Holstlaw to
vote for Senator Lorimer, and applies
also to Representative Robert E. Wil
son, against whom bribery charges are
Neither Browne nor Broderlck, who
were on the stand for a few moments
today, were questioned, because of the
plea of Attorney Thomas Dawson,
counsel for each, that he wished to con
fer with associate counsel before ad
vising his clients what Course to pur
sue. The committee granted counsel
until tomorrow morning to decide his
course. '
Representative Daniel D. Donahue, a
Democrat from Woomington, testified
today ho did not voto for Lorimer, and
that he sought to prevent his election,
because he believed that if the session
had adjourned wtihout electing a sen
ator a Democrat could have been elect
ed at the next session.
"I was asked to vote for Lorimer,"
said Donahue,, "fcut I refused. No offer
of money or any other thing was made
to mo, or any intimation made that I
would profit by so voting."
William H. Stunner, assistant man
ager of the Briggs hotel, Chicago, which
is Browne's headquarters in Chicago,
testified concerning threats he said
White had made to declare falsely he
had been bribed to vote for Senator
Lorimer and to compel Lorimer and his
friends to enrich him.
Representative Henry Terrell of Col
chester, Republican, and Representa
tive Homer E. Shaw, Democrat, were
witnesses today. Terrell caused a stir
on cross-examination when in answer
to a- question intimating he had sought
a bribe he exclaimed:
"My vote was not for sale. If it had
been, I could have got the money from
Lorimer himself."
This was stricken from the records.
Representative Jacob M. Groves was
recalled and repeated his statement
that Terrell and Shaw had told him
they could have obtained $1000 each by
voting for Lorimer.
The widow of Charles E. Luke, Dem
ocratic representative from Nashville,
111 was one of the witnesses today.
Her husband, who died February 21,
last, was one of the representatives
who Is said to have met Representa
tive Wilson at St. Louis when a legis
lative Jackpot Is alleged to have been
distributed. Mrs. Luke's appearance
was stripped of much of Its interest
when the committee ruled in favor of
Attorney Hanecy, representing Senator
Lorimer, eliminating conversations be
tween her Lite husband and herself
from the testimony
SAN JOSE, Oct. s.—Andrew Gerth

cratic tickot is aocepted by John
Ralphs, incumbent. Miller would settle
the affair before the November elec

to enter into a three days' endurance
race across thj San Bernardino moun

Ward and the head deputy of the of

Ward race him the first day, and the
second day take on Hewins, and the
third day pick up Ralphs for the last
lap. Miller agrees to quit the race for
sheriff if he does not reach the finish
ahead of Ralphs on the third day. He
makes the provision for the race either

Miller is a pioneer of the early days,
and is seeking election prepared to

Subscriptions to the fund to aid the families of the Times disaster victims continued to
come in yesterday to The Herald office and other places designated by Mayor Alexander to re
ceive such help as sympathetic hearts may be inclined to give. Not alone the awful fate of the
men in the flames but the plight of the widows and children bereft of support has appealed to
the sympathies of Los Angeles. It will be as greatly to the credit of the city to relieve their
sufferings and see that their needs are supplied as to track down the cause of their pitiable

Assembly Votes Reward for Dy
namiters' Capture—Senate
Extends Condolence
SACRAMENTO, Oct. s.—The special
session of the legislature came to a
close this morning after a three days'
session, during which time consider
ably more than three words, as set out
in the convention call, were inserted
in constitutional amendment No. 1 for
the separation of state and county
taxes. By opening up the entire sub
ject matter of the amendment which
was forced by the assembly, the legis
lature made a few Important changes
which will better satisfy persons who
at first were opposed to it.
Senator John S. Curtin of Tuolumne,
regarded as the father of the measure,
expressed himself today as being de
lighted with the turn of affairs because
the rate on banks is now placed where
It belongs, the public demand that a
two-thirds vote rather than a three
fourths vote be required to change the
■tax rate has been recognized, small
counties that would have suffered from
tho change in tax system have been
protected from loss and other changes
made to obviate objectionable features.
Governor Gillett sent a message to
both houses expressing his appreciation
at the final outcome, believing that
the measure has been materially
strengthened. Finding that the senate
refused to join in a $10,000 reward for
the arrest and conviction of the person
or persons responsible for the wrecking
of the LO9 Angeles Times plant and
killing many people early Saturday
morning, the assembly today voted the
entire sum from its contingent fund,
instead of $5000 as at first proposed
when the upper house was expected to
contribute a like amount. The senate's
resolution, extending condolence, calls
upon the governor to post the reward.
DENVER, Oct. 5.—A resolution in

Persons Who Destroyed Times
Building Thought to Have
Hurried to Border
Number of Dead in Explosion Is
Likely to Be Increased to
Detective Burns of San Francisco
Engages in Unraveling of
Dynamite Mystery
Again tlie search for the men believed to
have dynamited the Times building venters
In Lob Angeles. Detective William Burns
and TolU'e Sergeant Stephen Bunner are
here and Important developments are prom
ised. Many nimorg circulated yesterday,
however, are denied.
Another boat, the gasoline schooner Kate,
is now believed to have brought the dyna
mite south from San Francisco.
One more body was taken from the ruin*
yesterday. The number removed to date
now totab) sixteen.
A clew obtained by The Herald yesterday
indicates that the unidentified man seen
to fall back into the fire was named Bow
ers, lie went to the Times office to leave
a news Item.
The number of dead may be increased tit
twenty-three or twenty-four in the light
of developments.
The statement made by Captain of
Detectives Wall of San Francisco last
night to the effect that Police Sergeant
Stephen Bunner of the San Francisco
police department, who is in Los An
geles investigating the explosion that
wrecked the Times building Saturday
morning, believes he has identified one
of the trio of dynamiters who gave tho
name of William Morris, ivns rlpclarod
by Captain of Detectives Paul Flammer
here to be incorrect. The rumor that
the throe dynamiters are fleeing toward
the Mexican boundary line several
hours ahead of several detectives also
was denied by Captain Flammer.
Sergeant Bunner is in Los Angeles
investigating the case. He called at
the detective bureau last night and
chatted a short time with Detectivo
McKenzie, whom he has known for
several years. According to Acting
Detective Sergeant Chapman, who is
in charge of the detective bureau at
night, Bunner never entered the jail
and did not talk with any prisoner.
A report was circulated at polico
headquarters last night that the officers
working in Los Angeles succeeded in
tracing the movements of several sus
picious characters, and that the latter
were thought to have obtained an auto
mobile and gone south on the inland
road to San Diego. This highway passes
through Escondiilo, and it was rumored
that Detective William J. Burns, who
arrived in Los Angeles yesterday morn
ing from San Francisco, probably would
leave for the south and attempt to ap
prehend the fugitives at Escondido.
Captain Flammer stated that ho was
ignorant of such developments, and de
clared there is nothing to the report as
far as his department is concerned. Ha
stated that all of his men have re
ported in at their usual time, and with
the exception of Detectives Jones,
Home and McNamara, who are in San
Francisco making investigations, all of
the men working under his direction
are in Los Angeles or tho immediate
The stories printed in the afternoon
papers in which Detective Burns is
quoted as saying he is in entire charga
of the investigation have brought
about a controversy between the noted
graft prosecution detective and Attor
ney Earl Rogers, who is investigating
the case in the north.
Attorney W. H. Dehm received a
message from Attorney Rogers last
night denying emphatically that Burn 3
has entiro charge of the investigation.
According to a statement made by
Attorney Dehm last night Attorney
Rogers was retained by the Merchants
and Manufacturers' association, tho
chamber of commerce and the Found
ers and Employers' association to in
vestigate the explosion and assist in
every manner in running down the
dynamiters and clearing up tho mys
tery surrounding the placing of tha
bombs at the homes of Gen. Otis in
Wilshire boulevard and tho homo of
F. J. Zeehandelaar, secretary of tha
Merchants and Manufacturers' associa
tion, at 830 Garland avenue.
The local police, it is stated, also
resent the attitude of Burns In claim
ing to h,> nt tho head of the investiga
tion and having supervision over all
officers working on the case.
The detectives are maintaining strict
secrecy regarding: their movements.
Several men ari detailed especially to
run down wild reports and anoynmous
tips, and much valuable time is lost in
tnaking investigations of such matters.
According to an Associated Press
dispatch from San Francisco, Police
Sergeant Bunner of that city, who now
is In Los Angeles, is said to have sub
mitted a report to Captain Wall to tho
effect that a man answering the de
scription of the alleged dynamiter,
who gave his name as William Morris,
is in the city Jail at Los Angeles.
This report Is said to have contained
the Information that the prisoner was
viewed by Bunner, and the latter b«
lleved him to be one of the trio oj
It is also reported In San Francisco
yesterday that three men had been ar
rested in Los Angeles ns suspects la
the dynamite case.
Bunnor is said to have reported that
the man who answered tho description
of William Morris was a miner at
Forest Hill, Placer county. Thl» man
