Isn't it far better to acquire fortune with certainty

ending his trial for the Times bomb
explosion, which killed 21 men.
Immediately afterward his brother.
John J. McNamara, secretary of the
International Association of Bridge &
Structural Iron Workers, entered
plea of guilty to having dynamited the
Llewellyn Iron works in Los Angeles
on Christmas day, 1910.
New York, Dec. 2 "The fight
only begun. This is only the first
chapter. What we want to find out
now Is who were the men behind the
McNamaras, and this we propose to do."
This was the statement today by Chief
Counsel Drew of the National Erec
tors' association, which employed De
tective Burns to investigate the Los
Angeles case.
Drew declared the whole affair Is a
national issue, and the sooner labor
frees - itself from the criminal
element the better it will be for
labor, and the "sooner the country re
alizes it as such an issue the better
p.nd sooner the problem will be put on
its proper footing." He considered the
investigation being conducted by the
federal authorities at Indianapolis of
the highest importance.
Chicago, Dec. 2. "I consider the
outcome a great personal vindication
for me," said William J. Burns, when
told of the sensational developments
in the McNamara case at Log Angeles.
Especially," he added, "after men
occupying such positions as Samuel
Gompers and others have repeatedly
charged me with 'planting the dyna
mite at Los Angeles. Following them,
every socialist and labor paper in the
country has so often printed stories
of frame-ups' in the case that some
good people were beginning to think
that the prosecution was not 'on the
"I had no personal feeling against
either defendant. I was employed by
the mayor of Los Angeles to lnvestl
gate the case. My sole purpose was to
make a thorough inquiry. The evi
dence has been just what I ald it
was, 'overwhelming.'"
After Mr. Burns had read reports
of the action in court, he said
"The effect this will be far
reaching. I think the outcome will
result in summary action by organ
ized labor, by which the radical ele
ment, the element which is allied with
the anarchists, will be suppressed. It
will result. I believe, in ending such
outrages as the one at Los Angeles.
"Such men as John Mitchell will
control the policies of organized labor
in the future. Nine-tenths of the total
membership of the body were out of
sympathy with the course pursued by
the McNamara brothers.
"No longer will the heads and dele
gates of labor unions, disregarding
the rank and file, use their power re
gardless of the best interests of the
unions snd the people at large to
further selfish, personal ends.
"But the plea of guilty entered by
the McNamara brothers yesterday
does not close the case, In my opinion.
There are others involved who maj
be arrested at any time."
Roanoke, Va., Dec. 2. John
Mitchell, former president of the
United Mine Workers of America,
when told of the confession of the Mc
Namara brothers said he was shocked.
"Having been a miner, I have some
knowledge of the use of dynajilte.
Knowing that dynamite always blows
down, I felt confident that It could not
have been used in this case."
Mr. Mitchell would not express
himself as to the possible effect of
the confession on the cause of organ
ized labor. .
New York, Dec. 2. Until they read
the papers this morning labor leaders
here almost universally were inclined
to discredit the news that the Mc
Namaras had confessed. Today when
they satisfied themselves the men
really had admitted their guilt, some
still declared either the whole thing
was a "frame-up" which they could
not explain, but which would all be
understood in due time. Others, how
ever, declared union labor did not
stand for such crimes as those con
fessed by the McNamaras.
Denver, Dec. 2. President McLen
nou of the State Federation of Labor
declared today the McNamaras should
be severely punished if really guilty.
He was inclined to think the confes
sions had some connection with a plot
to influence the election in Los An
geles next Tuesday.
Denver, Dec. 2. President Moyer of
the Western Federation of Miners,
who, with Haywood and Pettibone,
Vt'aa arrested in connection with the
murder of former Governor Stuenen
burg five years ago, declared today the
confession of the McNamaras furnish
ed capital with a club which it would
rot be slow to use against organized
labor. "For that reason, no matter
how guilty I might have been, I never
would have confessed," said Moyer,
