LOS ANGELESIN AN UPROAR Dynamiting of Times''Building Throws City Into a Panic—Twenty-one Lives Lost in Explosion [The Citizen Special Service.) I.OS ANGKI.KS. Oct. 2 The on tire plant and building occupied by the I -os Angeles Times was de stroyed yesterday morning by dyna miters who placed time bombs un der the composing room. Twenty one persons are dead as a result of the outrage and some of those who were injured are not expected to live. The building was consumed by fire after the explosion and it is estimated that the property loss will he half a million dollars. Through out the building, after the explo sion, terrible scenes were enacted and many persons threw themselves to the sidewalk below. The out rage is supposed to be the culmina tion of the fight that has been waged between General Harrison Gray Otis, the manager of the pa per. and the labor unions, but few believe that any labor union in the city had any hand in the matter. Most of the people believe that it was the work of some radical of anarchic-histic tendencies who acted entirely on his own initiative, and without the knowledge of any of his fellow union men. ivxtra ponce arc patrolling ail parts of the city today in fear of further disorders This force will be increased tonight as the entire city is in an uproar. A special tin cl ing of the city council was held this afternoon at which it was voted to offer a reward of $25.u00 for the capture of the dynamiters. Those among the labor leaders who are Known to be actively hostile to the open shop policy are being closely watched, but all union men deny any knowledge of the affair, and openly denounce the outrage. The police are guarding the residence of Felix Zechandalaar. of the Mer chants' it Manufacturers' Associa tion. who was for years an ardent assistant of General Otis in iiis tight against the labor unions. In ilieir scan h this morning the police found five bombs, all of which were timed to go off yester day morning. A great union meeting was held this afternoon at which every union in the city was strong ly represented and resolutions strong ly condemning the outrage were adopted. Only one arrest has so far been made and the police admit that they have hardly an> elites at the pres ent time to warrant placing any one in particular under suspicion. The man arrested is Michael Kagan. who recently came from ihe Kast and has been lecturing on the sheet corn ers He has, in very inflammatory speeches, advocated that the only way for the laboring men to se cure their rights is by the adop tion of the torch and bomb. ST. KOt'IS, Oct. 2.—Samuel Oont pers, president of tho American Fed eration of Labor, when seen today in connection with the dynamiting of the Los Angeles Times building said that undoubtedly the act was Hint of a madman. Organized labor, lie said, did not stand for that kind of thing, and it was no fiend of la bor who could have p ititied and carried out so fiendish an act. INDIAN'A POI-IS, 0(1 ". Presi dent Lynch, of the International Typographical Union, today deplored the act of blowing up the Los An geles Times building, but be stated that he did not blame any labor union because lie was convinced that the outrage was not attribut able to organized labor. The unions were not of that caliber, he said, and lie belie • » * t could only have been that of a madman. The tight that has been waged by General Otis against the labor unions has been bitterly contested for the past fifteen years. The Times is the only one of the large papers in the country which is con ducted on the open shop policy and the light against the paper by the International Typographical union lias cost that organization more than a million dollars The battle, how ever. has always been waged peace ably, persuasion rather than force being used in the efforts of the union men to get the nonunionists to leave their employment. Every one of tlie local branches of the union throughout the country lias, from time to time, been assessed to keep up the fight against the Times. \ and, on the other hand, every help possible has been extended to Gen eral Otis by the opponents of or ganized labor. The Merchants’ <£• Manufacturers’ association has done everything possible to maintain the tint tie and Los Angeles has been j made the battlefield of one of the most Titanic struggles between la Iior anil capital (liat has taken place in the country. Taking into con j sideration the fact that the strug gle has been waged for so long a time in such an orderly manner it J is not likely’ that the labor unions, will be blamed for the outrage which occurred on Saturday. While Otis j is a man who has earned the dislike of the unionists it is not to he be lieved that any union would sloop , to such dastardly measures to wipe out the score. They have at all times been open in their avowed I enmity, going so far as to prevent i it is appointment to a lucrative am bassadorship. hut no acts of vio lence toward him have been scored against them. It is more than prob able if the culprit is arrested it will develop that he is an anarchist who has Imbibed his creed from street corner preachers rather than i in the assembly rooms of any union.
