[By Atsociatcd Prets]
{NDIANAPOUS, Nov. 14. —For the
first time since persons were killed |
In I ring up of tho Los Angeles j

having caused the explosion, with his J
motives for doing it and his comments j
oany persons wero

in the "dynamite conspiracy" trial to- j
Urtie E. McManigal testified that the
confession was given to him while he I
was hiding MoNamara In the woods
five miles from Cunover, Wls., both of
them having gone there on the pretext
of hunting.
Olaf A. Tveitmoe and Eugene A.
Clarity, San Francisco labor leaders,
McManitra tt-siified, were named by
McNamara as having made arrange
ments for VM Los] Angeles explosion
and as having furnished the two men
■ —F, A. Schmidt and David Caplan—to
assist in buying the high power nitro
gelatin, because Bchmidt and Caplan
t had been regularly employed on the
coast by the Building Trades council
of California.
Tveitmoe and Clancy are among the
45 defendants.
CAPI.A\ HELIEVEI) DEAD
Caplan and Schmidt, named by Mc-
Manigal, were inViicted in Los Angeles
county with James B. MrXamara on
charges of murder, but they have never
been captured. Government agents
have been informed that Caplan was
killed.
When he asked McNamara why he .
twisted off a gas jet in the basement |
of the Times building before the ex- i
plosion, McManigal testified that this
conversation ensued:
McManigal—Why did you break
off the gas jet?
McNamara —Because when the
explosion occurred I wanted the
whole building to go to hell.
McManigal—And you knew there
were so many people in there, too?
"HOPED TO GET OTIS"
MrXamara —What's the differ
ence? 1 was to make a good clean
ing out and I did it. But I am
sorry so many were killed. I hoped
to get General Otis.
McManigal said that November 5,
■910, he was at his home in Chicago
and expected to depart the next day
for Kenoeha, Wis., whence he was to
V start with a hunting party in charge
of Marion Sharpe. That very day, he
said, John J. McNamara, brother of
the Times dynamiter, asked him to
take James B. on the hunting trip.
M.-Manigal said that he had learned
that James B. had been in hiding on
the way back from the Pacific coast
and was two weeks with J. E. Munsey
in Salt Lake City. He said he went to
Kenosha and James B. joined him
there. They procured hunting licenses
and went with the party to Conover j
and then to a camp five miles in the
country.
'November 9," said McManigal, "I
missed James B. and started out alone
to look for deer. Standing on a tree j
■tump, I suddenly heard the crack e< <
a pistol, but looking around, saw no
one. Every one was supposed to wear
a red cap to distinguish people from
deer. I saw no red cap, but presently
I saw James B. Suspicion Hashed into
my mind, i accused him right out.
"FINE rLACB TO GET RII> OF MAX"
" I think you were taking a shot at
me,' I said. *'If you do you had better
be quick about it. This is a fine place
up here to get rid of a man—just shoot
him and the coyotes will eat up his
body. ,
"He replied that he did it just to
re me. Then, we being alone for
the first time, he sat down and told
me about the Los Angeles job. He said
that when he went to the coast in July
he got Into touch with Tveitmoe and
my. according to instructions from
his brother at the headquarters of the
Iron Workers' union in Indianapolis.
Tveitmoe and Clancy, he said, put Cap
lan and Schmidt at his disposal, be

Iforni* Building Trades council,
midt was too much of a talker, he
: m lie blew up a job in
Oakland August 20 he made Schmidt
stay in Sun Francisco.
'-When he returned to San Francisco
Schmidt was waiting for him and, on
strength of the fact that the
bombs had been set in Oakland, went
Tvettmoe and got $50*) from him
r at night. J. B. said he also did the
Seattle job August 31.
"Leading up to the Los Angeles ex
plosion, J. B. said he found you could
get all the money you wanted on the
coast. He said Tveitmoe was the big'
paymaster, and there never was any
thing to fear, for Tveitmoe was a
friend of Mayor McCarthy, and. In fact,
Tveitmoe was the mayor of San Fran
cisco.

the job alone, not both of them, for
Schmidt was too much of a talker and
had a woman friend in Los Angeles
that he (McNamara) did not want to
get mixed up in the job.
"Then he told me he had set the
bomb in what Iβ known as 'Ink alley'
in the Times building in some ink
barrels and old papers. Going in, he
said, he was stopped by the night
nan, who asked him what he
wanted in there. He replied he was
j going to the composing room. The
watchman let him pass. He was again
J stopped by a boy,- but he also told the
boy he was going to the composing
room.
"The boy directed him to a door or a
stairway, I think he said. He reached
the basement, and while passing along
it tore off a gas jet. I asked, 'Why did
you break off the gas jet? . He replied,
'Because I wanted the whole building
to go to hell.' I said I was surprised
uld do it. knowing there were so
many people in the building. He an
swered, "What's the difference? I was
to make a good cleaning out. and I did
it.' Then he tffought for a while and
added: 'But I-am sorry there were so
many people. I wanted to get General
Otis."
BOMB FOR TWO HOMES
"He told me he put the infernal
machines under the residences of Gen
eral Harrison Gray Otis, proprietor of
the Times, and of Felix J. Zeehandelaar,
secretary of the Merchants' and Manu
facturers' association, nil to go off at

j City he paid he couhl not stand it any
longer, so he stepped off the train and

hid him in his house for two weeks."

igal testified that in September, 1910,
he was sent t© Chicago, where he
talke.l with William Shupo and James
Coughlln> Iron Workers' union officials,
about a "job" to be blow up between
Gary and Pine, Ind.. but which he did

not properly situated.
COAST "ECHO" IK EAST
McManfofcl sai.l thai after news of
the Los Angeles explosion was pub
lished. J. J. McNamara, secretary of the
Iron Workers, with headquarters in
Indianapolis, sent him to Worcester,
Mass., to cause an "echo" of the Pa
cific coast explosion in the east.
"I want an echo of that Los Angeles
affair in the east, so if they catch J. B.
they'll think they have the wrong
man," McManigal said was the way
J. J. instructed him.
McManigal said he went to Worcester
and caused two explosions there Octo
ber 9.- On the return, he testified, he
called at the home of Frank C. Webb
in Now York and left a message that
i£ any more work was to be done in the
east word should be sent to J. J. Mc-
Namara in Indianapolis. He said he
also looked up the possibility of blow

KHAKI UNIFORMS
LEAD TO DIVORCE
But Not Before Oakland Man's
Wife Had Eloped With
Valuable Securities
OAKLAND, Nov. 14.—A tag left in an
empty safe deposit vault was notice to
Quintus H. Berrey that his wife, Jennie
E. Berry, and valuable securities, sugar
stocks and insurance papers miss
ing together, Berrey testified in di
vorcing the woman today. The tag
bore the information that he might
communicate with her through attor
neys. When he inquired of the maid
at the apartments where Mrs. Berrey
had gone he was told that her where
abouts was a mystery known only to
Mrs. Berrey and the maid. Berrey had
previously learned that his wife had
taken several trips to Alaska.
Married in Honolulu in IS9B, where
Berrey kept a mercantile agency and
was sole owner of a flourishing corpo
ration, Berrey found that the flavor of
their island romance was emMtterd. by
his wife's partiality for soldiers sta
tioned at the harbor fortifications. Mrs.
Berrey had them at their house in
squads, organized parties for them,
took them on excursions and spent his
money lavishly in sending them gifts.
Mrs. Berrey maintained an extensive
correspondence with soldiers and her
liking for the uniform was so well
known that Berrey said many of his
customers withdrew their patronage.
When his father died, Berrey sought
to have his wife start life again on a
farm in Virginia, but she disliked
"southern people," she said, and told
him she would not live in Virginia if
she were given the whole state. So
she left for San Francisco.
Later they started a summer resort In
Sierraville, but there the bronzed for
est rangers and forestry officials re
placed the soldiers in her affections,
and guests at the place began leaving,
Berrey said. He wa* granted an inter
locutory decree.

cense law. The new bureau will call
for the payment of all taxes as now re
quired by city ordinance, and it is be
lieved that thousands of dollars which
have been overlooked heretofore will be
added to the city's revenue.
Mayor Frank K. Mott announced at a

that $25,000 a year was lost to the city

with the present force of men in
charge of W. A. J. Francks, head oj the
license department, it was impossible
to collect any but the more important
licenses, such as saloon, dog, peddler
and similar licenses, he decided to take
the initiative. A list of 95 businesses
upon which licenses are imposed have
been furnished to the patrolmen, and
they have been instructed to report all
violations of the ordinance and compel
the payment of the tax into the city
treasury.
Sergeant James F. Walters has been
placed in charge of the bureau by Pe
tersen, and Walters has prepared a list
of the delinquents, representing sev
eral hundred. This list, in turn, will
be given to the. patrolmen and the pa
trolmen were informed today that they
are to notify the delinquents that the
license money is due. If it is not paid
after a reasonable time warrants will
be issued.

McCLURE ARRAIGNS
GOVERNMENT OF U. S.
Says Corrupt Politics Causes
Life and Property Loss
BERKELEY, Nov. 14.—Political cor
ruption in the United States was dis
cussed this afternoon at the University j
of California hy Samuel S. McClure, the
New York publisher. The League of j
the Republic arranged the lecture.
Willard Beatty presided.
"Inefficient government In the United
States," declared McClure, "causes an
enormous loss in life and property.
"Men famous in our history have
been men who fought abuses. In the
first 100 years after the republic was )
established the leaders of the people j
were combating evils of their day. in !
the last 50 years we have been fighting j
evils engendered by the diversion of
patriotism from its proper objective.
"Government is Inefficient in the
United States and corruption is thick, j
Both the old parties are dominated by '
corrupt machines in the nation. Rail
ways employ bureaus to corrupt legis
latures. One railroad magnate told me
he could not run his business without
such a bureau and another told me he
personally controlled the legislatures-!
of seven states."
McCluVe said the remedy lay in di- I
vorcing business from politics, in en- )
larglng the powers of the central gov
ernment and in making government re
sponsive to the people through Initia
tive, referendum, recall and direct
nominations.
He said conditions in cities were as
bad as In the nation.
"One of the most lucrative position's
In most cities," he said, "is that of
building and there is enor
mous and avoidable loss of human life
and of property because of the venality
of these officials."

is l A richer than butter
Cottolene is not for table
use, but it is the best cooking
fat for all shortening and fry
ing. If you are using butter
in your kitchen you are pay
ing at least twice as much as
necessary to secure the same
results with Cottclene.
Another point of economy
about Cottolene — use one
third less than you would of
butter or lard.
Cottolene is a clean, pure
product, and makes whole
some, healthful, digestible
