when twcpty one persons were

Ohae. V. Miller, United States
District Attorney, who is con.'
ducting the prosecution of the
aocueed "dynamite plotters" h
fore Federal Judgo Albert B.
Anderson, so asserted.iu deliver
ing the Government's outline of
the case before the lury. Mr.
.Miller said Ortio- B. McManigal
had been selectedto do the job
and was seut East from Indian
opolis to Massachusetts.
Mr. Miller's narrative of this
pirticular charge was as follows:
MeMaaigal in Xtatucky
'MoMauigal has been down to
High Bridge, Kv., to seo about
.blowing up .a structure there.
Tie arrived back in Indianopolis
on the morning of October 2nd.
That was the day after the Los
Augeles Times was blown op,
.McManigal first read abouC it in
.. an Indianopolis newspaper. He
immediately called up the head
quarters of the International As
iociatbn of Bridge and Structu
ral Iron Workers and tallied to
John J. McNamara on tho tele
phone. MolNamara said, 'Come
right on over here.' McMauigal
went over and said : 'Did you
rcread -about that Los Angeles
job?' 'Yes,' said MoNamam.
'Do you know who did it, or was
v it, some of those fellows on the
Paoiflc Coast?' asked' McMauigal.
3 I don't kuow yet.' Then Mc
Manigal asked McNamara wheth-
.' er he had heard from Jim' mean
ing James B. McNamara. Jno.
0. reached over to his desk aud
got a postcard picture of the
- Times building, or of a sign near
the Times building, which raid
'-?The Times' for the News. James
B. had written beneath cIt will
loon read, "Tho NaWB of The
"Icho of Times Ixplosioa"
" 'I received thatpo9tcard sev
eral days ago, but I haven't heard
panythiug further,' added John J.
uOn October 5, McManigal again
asked John J. whether he had'
heard anythiug from James B.
;- John J. answered, 'Yes. . He's
all right. He was 200 miles away
when that Times explosion oc
curred. Now what I want is an
echo of the Times explosion in
a ! the East, so as to make 'em sit
up, but I want you to change
that alias of J. W . McGraw. It's
been hanging around you too
long. That's the trouble with J.
B. He had been hanging on to
J. B Bryce too long and now
tbfty" are looking for J, -B. Bryce
on the Pacific Coast' It then
was arranged for,, McMBil to
go East and cause the 'echo' of
the Times disaster," - ,
Mr. Miller said McManigal
traveled about the East with ex-
ives in a suit cave, finally
ing up a railroad bridge at
jsier, jilsss., on ucr. xu.
Ironworker AeeaitA
officials nnd Executive Board
members of the Ironworkers'
Uniou were aware of the explo
sions and were appropriating
money for the expense of carry
ing them on, Mr. Miller quoted
from books which he said were
taken from the union headquar
ters. These records, he declared
showed :
That $11,000 was appropriated
at a mettiug of the Executive
Board held in, Indianopolis Dec.
8, 1609, aud was paid at tho rate
of f 1000, monthly to. John J. Mc
Namara with the specific under
standing that McNamara was to
use it to defray the expenses jf
That McNamara drew on the
fund regularly up to and after
the Times disaster, his checks
being indorsed by Prank M Ryau
president of the union; John T.
Butler, BuiT-ilo, first vice-presi
dent; Herbert S. Hockin, acting
secretary-treasurer; Pronk O.
Webb, New York ; and Philip A.
Oooley,New Orleaus, members
of the Executive Board, all ,of
whom are on trial. ,
" Clippings as Proof m
Newspaper clippings, giving
accounts of explosions, Mr. Mil
lor said, Were accepted as proof
that the work had been done and
upon which the regular fee for
each job of $200 was paid to Mc,
Mauignl. In one instance in the
blowing up of a contractor's work
in Indianopolis, Mr, Miller said
it would be shown that Ernest G.
W. Basey, a lpcal business agent
who is also a defendant, told
people thenight before: ((Watch
the newspapers in the..5 morning.
Somethfng'isgoing to happen."
Herberts. 'Hockin, "now actiug
secretary of the union, was re
ferred to by Mr. Mtller before
the jury as a "doublR.crosser and
a double-dealer" in giving infor
mation to the Government about
the dynamiting plots.
Hockin in Court
Hockin was in the court room
with tho other defeudonts today.
'Hookiu has been double
crossing everybody," said Mr.
Miller. "Ho not only double-
crossed McManigal, but he oven
double-crossed the union. He
lias been double-crossing it and
double-crossing these defendants
ever since.
"1 will not stop to tell you just
how he personally delivered evi
dence here at the Federal build
iig, thievidence tending to in-
A Dead Watch
or Clock

owner, and if you have
one around your home
we would like to make it
do its part in this world.
So bring it down to
day and let us put the
life into it.
Hollmger &
.' Optician ,
criminate other defci;duntr. I
will toll you all aboutthis later."
Mr. Miller's statement cause.1
a sensation in court. All the
forty-five other defendants, look
ed toward Hockin,- who sat in
their midct, barying his head in
a newspaper.
Quarrel With McManigal
Next to Prank M. Ry,an, presi
dent of the iron Workers,' Uniou,
Hockin had been considered the
most prominent cf the defen
dants. At the Ironworkers' Iu
ternaiioual headquarters he oc
cupied the same desk formally
used by J. J McNamara, uow in"
prison in, California. He svaa
present at a raid made on the
iron workers' office soon after
McNamara's arrest. While Ihe
Federal grand jury later was in
vestigating the dynamiting cas
es, he often had been seen going
iu aud ont of the Federal build
iug carrying bundles of papers.
'Long before tho Los Angeles
Time? buikijng Was blown tip,
Mr. Miller declared, a quarrel
between MoMinigal, Hockiu and
James B. McNamara over the
fixed price which was to be paid
for dynamiting jobs occured, and
M'M'inigal threatened to expose
the others.
Dynaaiter's life Threatened
"McManigal said: 'I have a
notion to quit this business and
give it away,' said Mr. Miller.
" If you do, your life won't be
worth much,' replied Hockin.
Hockin had been keeping back
part of MoMnnigal'd money.
They patched up their differ
ences, and James B. McNamara
went toOalifpruia and did his
destructive -work there. But as
soon as the Government's "inves
tigation began Hockin began to
double-cross the union by person
ally bringing ovidence directly
to the Federal building."
Hockin formally lived in De
troit. McManigal was ivorkiug
ou a building there iu 1007 when,
accordiug to his confessions, he
was first induced by Hockin to
go into the dynamiting busiuess.
McManigal had worked in a
stone quarry, aud it was because
of his fumiliarity with explosives
that Hockin sought him, lie said.
