Washington was not Surprised at the
announcement that there would be an
extra session. Immediately after the
. lection it was known that the presi

A Long Session.
Indications are strong that the com
ing extr&. session will Te a good deal
broader than a mere tariff session.
Many Democratic leaders are demand
ng trust legislation and also currency
legislation. The prospects aie that the
"tmocrats will grapple with the big
gest problems of the next four years
at the outset of the administration.
If the tariff, the trust question, and
the currency question are tackled, this
will mean that the extra session will
st most or all of next summer. It is
ot unHkel, in fact, that it will reach
into the fall.
With the announcement of the extra
s.ssion, there is little reason to doubt

"It was the wise thing to do, and I

Senator Dixon said Wilson had done
the wise thing and that the country
would soon have opportunity to judge
of Democratic performance. He said
w r ether Progressives supported the

Indianapolis, ImL, Nov. 22. Stealing
1200 pounds of dynamite, hiding it in
a shed at Tiffin. O., and then trans
porting It in suitcases on passenger
trains to Indianapolis, -was an experi
ence related by Ortie E. McManigal at
the "rynamite conspiracy" trial today.
It was the explosive used by McMani
gal and the McNamaras after the Los
Angeles. Times explosion aria by which
10 nonunion "jobs" were blown up. in
spite of the fact, the witness said, that
detectives for two months had been on
the trail of the dynamiters.
Confident of McNamara's Escape.
Confident that the agitation over the
Los Angeles explosions would "blow
over" and that James B. SscNamara
would be free to do "more jobs," Mc
Manigal added, plans were begun in
January, 1911, to carry on the dyna
mite campaign with zest.
"When I reported to J. J. McNamara
how easy it had been to steal the dy
namite from a stone quarry at Bloom -ville,
O., and store it in my father's
shop at Tiffin, he was pleased," said

not store it all at the Ironworkers' of

"J. J. ordered us to cut off all the
trade marks on the dynamite sticks,
because, he said, it had been a mistake
to leave the trade marks on the dyna
mite purchased at San Francisco for
the Los Angeles job.
Having the new supply of explosives.
McManigal said, J. J. arranged to seixx
the dynamiters out on "jobs."
"About this time," McManigal testi
fied, "John J. was startled by receiv
ing a newspaper account of the finding
of a suit case at San 'Francisco. J. B.
said it was a suit case containing fuse
and clocks which he had checked. HeJ
had given the check to David Caplan,
telling him to get the suit case and
drown it, but Caplan got 'cold feet,' be

"On February 19, J. B. came to ray
home, in Chicago, and said we had a
job to do," McManigal testified. He
said Herbert S. Hockin had seen and
talked to the executive board of local
No. 1, in Chicago, and local No. 1 want
ed to have a job done and was willing
to pay & big fee for it. He said a roan
named Bd Francis had told the board
he had two Cleveland men who would
do the south Chicago job for $500, but
the executive board bad asked Hockin
whether it could be done cheaper, per
haps fdr J200 or $300.
J. B. and I looked over the south
Chicago plant and decided to do it.
"We went to Indianapjjls and got
our packages, each containing 20
pounds i of dynamite. John J. McNa
mara instructed us he wanted four ex
plosions on the plant, saying if we did
a good job he would pay us $100 extra.
He said he would have to wait until
local No. l, in Chicago, paid the money,
but Patty Ryan had called us up and
said he wanted the job done.
"When we reached Chicago, the dy
namite was frozen. We thawed it out
by setting the suitcase on a radiator
in e kitchen in my home, in soptn ban-
gamon street.'

on reaching Los Angeles that the aux

That was the "Christmas present" he

in San Francisco, had asked for, and
on his return east he stopped off at

Ralph de Pal ma, speed -king, winner

There is a merry controversy on in
ing around De Palma. It is, "Who is
the 1912 speed champion?" .That ques
tion is agitating the friends of both
Teddy 'Tetzlaff and De Palma, who
burned up thousands of miles of tracks
and roads this year.
Friends of De Palma say that the
plucky little driver who so narrowly
escaped death at Milwaukee is entitled
to first honors for the year, while
Tetzlaffs followers are insistent that
he is the particular one who should
wear the crown of the speed king.
In comparing his record -with that of
De Palma. a friend. of Tetzlaff says:
"Tetzlaff has always defeated De
Palma except on one race having also
won a 100 mile match race against De
Palma. De Palma has broken no
world's records during 1912. -whereas
Tetzlaff has broken over 200 world's
records. Tetzlaff broke and still holds
the world's road race record, and also
broke practically all the -world's rec
ords up to 250 miles at Indianapolis."
Friends of De Palma retort that he
was the handy winner of the biggest
of all races, the Indianapolis, when
his auto went bad and forced him to
droi out of the race. They also de
clare that he was making a wonderful
race when he met with the accident
at Milwaukee.

Border Town Falls, After
Federals Loose Heavily in
Killed and Wounded.
The Mexican rebels
are again in
possession of Palomas.
The 10ft federal troops defending the
port made a determined and daring
fight Thursday agaisnt 350 rebels, and
only surrendered after two distinct en-
gagements, in whichhrdlu hrdl & cmt
gagements, the last of which was
fought from house tc house.
The loss in dead and wounded on
both sides was over 30. By employing
dynamite bombs, the rebels early in the
day entered the town, and fighting con
tinued for two hours. A cessation of
firing led to the belief at Columbus,
N. M., 10, miles to the north, that the
town had fallen.
But about noon the battle resumed,
the federals still holding a position in
their barracks and urged to make &
firm stand by their commander, CoL
Francisco Corella, who, though suf
fering a painful wound in the leg, re
mained on the firing line. Brisk fight
ing continued until nearly three oclock,
when the government troops were
trheatened again by hand grenades and
compelled to surrender. Aside from
the federal lieutenant who early in
the morning fled to the American side,
all of the government troops not
killed or wounded were taken prison
ers, with their rifles, supplies and am
munition. There was no artillery in
the town.
The Losses Heavy.
Official reports to Gen. E. Z Steever
at Fort Bliss give the federal losses as
seven killed and eight or 10 wounded,
while the rebel loss is indefinitely giv
en as 14 killed and wounded. As soon
as hostilities had ended, Maj. McDon
ald, in charge of the 13th U. S. cavalry
border patrol at Columbus, sent word
to Palomas that all younded, either
rebel or federal, would be cared for on
the American side. A party of both
rebels and federal injured came to the
line late in the afternoon, but declined
to cross. Maj. McDonald's report did
not say if the men were treated at the
New CeatHtlOBS Arise.
Rebel success in taking Palomas not
only scores an important victory for
the revolution, but creates a peculiar
condition which has iot existed since
Madero's insurrectos captured Juarez.
With the revolutionary forces under
Gen. Inez Salazar now in command op
posite Columbus, only 73 miles to the
east federals under Gen. Trucy Aubert
still retains Juarez, opposite El Paso.
While the Madero rebels were permit
ted to cross munitions while holding
the port of Juarez last year, it is con
sidered improbable, in view of the re
cent attitude of the war department
that the same will result in the nresent
instance at Palomas.
May Be Smuggling Bases.
The rebels captured Palomas earlier
in their revolt and held it for several
weeks, relinquishing it without a tlgnt
a short time Deiore tney leu juarei
without a fight Their return and re
capture of the place is considered by
some as an indication that they mean
to try further ammunition smuggling
operations: by others that they wish to
get near the border again in an effort
to deliberately bring about complica
tions with the United State-.
Not RegHlar Array Troops.
The federals who defended Palomas
were volunteers of the ex-Insurrecto
type, and not federal regulars, accord
ing to Gen. Trucy Aubert at Juarez.
The Juarez commander has received no
official report of the taking of the
town, but is convinced of the report
He wired the report yesterday after
noon at Gen. Tellez at the city of
Chihuahua and president Madero at
Mexico City. One hundred federals
booked to depart from Juarez last
evening for Guzman on a scouting ex
pedition were recalled and did not
make the journey over the North West
ern railway.
There is much misgiving in Juarez
as to the outcome of the Palomas affair,
""-ranting that Salazar had 350 men in
the attacking party, the arms secured
from the lderals would make possible
the recruiting of a total of nearly 500
men. which force might attack Juarez,
which is deftndent by about that num
ber, as Juarez is on low ground and
surrounded by high mesas, it is con
sidered easily taken, especially in ab
sence of any artillery protection.

to locate these troops and order them

but there appears to be little doubt
among military and railway officials
that the lines will remain open for
long. In view of ,a possible movement
against Juarez, Gen. Aqbert can spare
no more troops to patrol the railways,

London, Eng., Nov. 22. A battle

In view of the fact that the Otto-
man capital even if captured, must ul
timately be evacuated in accordance
with the decree of the powers, it ap
pears that the allies have nothing to
gain by insisting on the surrender of
the lines which form virtually the.
gates of the city.
While the Bulgarian conditions for

ing the surrender of Adnanople and
Scutari both of which are making a
historic defence, as well as the cession
of all the territory except a narrow
strip above Constantinople, these con
j ditions were advanced as overtures: in
other words, they were apparently pnt
forward as a basis for negotiations.
The porte treated them as an ultima
tum and this, perhaps, is the oriental
method of beginning negotiations, de
signed to induce the enemy further to
show his hand.
