at thr trial of 45 accused "bomb plot
teis" today his experiences as a hired
dynamiter. The confessed accom
plice of the McNamara brothers, as
a government witness, began shortly
before noon telling how for more than
four years he caused explosions about
tbe country against employes of non
union labor. He directly accused Her

At the outset McManigal asserted
he attempted to protect the lives of
people whenever setting off a bomb.
In his first job in Detroit in June,
1!'07, he told of puTi:ng a garbage

taurant so the people would not run

Mr. Wilkerson said he understood
that Johnson intended to leave this

The crime with ' which Johnson Is
charged is not extraditable.
After Johnson learned that only
surety by property owners would be

an extension of time. First, he asked
at the close of the day's session that
he be permitted to represent new
bondsmen at a night session which
the court was holding for tjie consid
