McNa mara to life imprisonment at San Quentin, following his con fession of having blown up the Los Angeles Times building, at which time twenty-one lives were snuffed out. John J. McNamara, confessed dynamiter of the Llewellyn Iron Works, last Christmas day, was sentenced to fifteen years im prisonment. The men received their sen tences without any trace of emo tion. JAMES B. McNAMARA'S CON FESSION. Los Angeles, Dec. 5. -James a B. McNamara's brief confession, penned by his own hand last Monday, and bearing many evi dences of a man little skilled in letters was made public Tuesday. It is as follows: "I, James B. McNamara, de fendant in the case of the people, g having heretofore pleaded guilty to the crime of murder, desire to make this statement of facts: " "And this is the truth: On the night of Sept. 30, 1910, at 0 5:45 p. m., I placed in Ink Alley, a portion of the Times building, a suitcase containing sixteen sticks of 80 per cent dynamite, set to explode at 1 o'clock next morning. It was my intention to injure the building and scare the owners. I did not intend to take the life of any one. I sin cerely regret that these unfortu n nate men lost their lives. If the f giving of my life would bring them back I would gladly give it. In fact, in pleading guilty to murder in the first degree, I have e placed my life in the hands of the State. (Signed) JAMES B. M'NAMARA." The confession covers one side * of an ordinary sheet of paper, and was written with a fountain pen supplied by one of the at torneys. It is probable that it is i the only written statement of I the case that will ever be made , by the writer or his brother, John J. McNamara, who pleaded guilty to dynamiting the Llewel g lyn Iron Works. ELECTRIC LINE FROM BERWICK TO LAFA YETTE. New Orleans, Dec. 3.-Work on an interurban electric line in central Louisiana, 120 miles in > length, will be started in a few days, or as soon as equipment and labor can be placed in the field. The Southwestern Power and Traction Company, with a sub scribed capital of $6,000,000, has perfected plans for the building of the line from Berwick to Lafa yette, through New Iberia. The line will extend east from New Iberia to Lafayette, the whole mileage being about 123 miles. A French syndicate, through local financiers, has bought the entire bond issue, but all of the officers and directors of the com pany live in Louisiana, only two of them living outside of New Orleans. This enterprise has been on the tapis for many months and work would have been in progress now but for the fact that the South orn Pacific company enjoined the electric road company in the cou 'ts of Iberia parish and ar rested operations in that man ner. The bonding company im mediately cut off negotiations and until a settlement of differ ences couid be agreed withheld any loan. EXTRA(CT FROMI MINUTES OF SPECIAL MEETING.
