' One Job Let on Contract. '
.Tho. Job. of .causing an explosion in a
i,wu,vi iron anu sieci piant in consiruo-
tlon at ..South Chicago, ill., on February
21. 1911, McManigal testified "was knocked
tliwn tQ-tha lowest bidder."
"On February 19 J. U. camo to my home
in Chicago and said we had a Job to do,"
McManigal testified. "He said Herbert
B. Hockln bad been talking to the
executive board of local No. 1 in Clilcago
and local No. 1 wanted to have a Job
done and was willing, to pay a big fee for
it. He said a man named Ed Francis had
told tho executive board he had two
Cleveland men who would do the South
Chicago Job for tCW. but tho executive
board had asked Hockln whether It could
bo done cheaper, perhaps for J200 or $300.
"J. B. and I looked over tho South Chi
cago plant and decided to do It.
"Wo went to Indianapolis and got our
packages, each containing twenty pounds
of dynamite. John J. McNamara in
structed us he wanted four explosions on
tho plant, saying if we did a good Job
lie would pay us $100 extra. Ho said he
would have to watt until local No. 1 In
Chicago paid the money, but Patty Kyan
had called up and sold he wanted the job
done.
"When wo reached Chicago the dyna
mltq was frozen. He thawed it out by
setting tho suit case on a radiator In a
kitchen in my home In South Sangamon
street."
McManigal said when he and James B.
went toSouth Chicago they found the
glare of nearby furnaces so-brilliant they
did not do as much damage as they in
tended, placing only two bombs Instead
of four.
Ilrnnnille la Stolen.
stealing 1.2C0 pounds of dynamite, hid
ing It in a shed at Tiffin, O., and then
transporting It In suitcases on passenger
trains to Indianapolis was an experience
also related by McManigal. It was tho
explosive used by McManigal and the
McNamaras after the Los Angeles Times
explosion and by which ten nonunion
"Jobs" were blown up In spite of the fact,
the witness said, that detectives for two
months had been on the trail of tho dy
namiters. Confident That the agitation over the
Los Angeles explosions would "blow
over" and thav James B. McNamara
would be free to do "more Jobs," McMan
igal added, plans were begun, !n January,
1911, to carry on tho dynamite campaign
with zest.
"When I reported to J. J. McNamara
how easy it had been to steal the dyna
mite from a stono quarry at Bloomvllle,
O., and store It In my father's shed at
Tiffin he was pleased." said McManigal.
"I brought him several suitcases of dyna
mite as a sample and ho locked It up In
a vault at the office of tno International

' MILWAUKEE, Wis., Nov. 22,-John
Schrank, who shot Colonel Theodore
lloosovolt on tho night of October 14, In
Mtlkaukco, Is Innano and was late this
afternoon committed by Mundpol Judge
A. C. Backus, to the Northern Hospital
for the Insane near Oshkosh, until
cured.
Judge Backus' ruling said:
"Tho court now finds that tho defend
and, John Schrank Is Insane, and there
fore lucapaltated to act for himself. It
Is therefore ordered and adjudged that
tho dofendant, John Schrank, bo com
mitted to tho Northern Hospital for the
Insane near Oehkosh in the county of
Winnebago, state of Wlscousln untU such
time when ho shall havo recovered frdm
such Insanity, when ho shall bo returned
to this court for further proceedings ac
cording to law.
"And it Is further ordered that all pro
ceedings In this case be saved Indefinitely
and until such recovery."
Beforo being led bock to Jail to await
preparations for the trip to tho asylum,
Schrank ualii:
"I had expected that they yould find
me insano, because It was in thp papers
two days ago. I wont to say now that
I am sane and know what I am doing
all the time. I am not a lunatlo jand
nover was ono. I was called upon, to
do a duty and havo done It.

District Attornoy Zeabel submitted, a
number of aueations to oaoh of the alien
ists, all of which brought forth similar.
responses, tho substance of which was
that Schrank was suffering from chronlo
paranoia.
Failure in effecting a euro of Sch'rank's
mental disorder means that h.e will spend
tho baianco of his llfo In the; asylum to
wlilch he has been ordered .committed.
Dr. R. G Saylo this afternoon testified
as to tho nature of Colonel Roosevolt's
wound. Captain Glrad and 'Herman
Rollflnk told of the character of the as
sailant uftor tho shooting, and Detective
Lou H. IJartman and two offloern told
of the trp In tho patrol wagon to tho
Central station following Schrank's ur
rest. Tho conclusions reached by the com
mission are as follows:
First-John Schrank Is suffering from
Insane delusion, grandiose In character
and of a systematized variety.
Second In our opinion he Is insane at
the present time.
Third On account of jthe connection ex
isting between his delusion and the act
with wlilch ho stands charged we are ot
the opinion he Is unable to confer intelli
gently with counsel on the conduct of
his defense.
Schrnnk Addresses CommUaton,
An address by Schrank to tho commis
sioners, in which he apologized for caus
ing unpleasantness in making them de
cide a matter "which would have been
better tried by n higher than earthly
court," was included in tho report In It
Schrank review the "vision" In which he
claimed to have looked Into tho dying
eyes of the laU President McKlnley,
"when a voice called to me to avengo
his death- I was confident that my llfo
was coming soon to an end and I was at
once happy to know that tny real mission
on this earth was to die for my country
and the cause of republicanism.
"The shot at Milwaukee, which created
an echo in all ports of the world, was
not a shot fired at tho earthly Roose
velt; not a shot at an cx-presldent; not
a shot at tho candidate of a so-called
progressive party; not a shot to gain
.for me notoriety; no. It was simply to
once and forever establish the fact that
any man who hereafter aspires to a third
presidential term will do so at the risk
of his life. If I cannot defend tradition,
I cannot defend the country In case ot
war. and vou may as well send every
patriot to prison.
"I hope that the shot at Milwaukee has
awakened patriotism of the American na
tionthat it opened their eyes to the
real danger and showed them the only
safo way out of It, as Is proven by the
election returns in the great democratic
party. The north, south, east and west
Is once more and more solidly united, and
proudly can we provo to the nations of
the world that the spirit of 1776 Is still
alive and shall never die, and that self
government Is an established fact and
a success.
"I have been accused of selecting a
state where capital punishment is abol
ished. I would say I did not 'know tne
laws of any state I traveled throurn, and
It would be ridiculous for me to fear
death after the act, as I expected to die
during the act and not live to tell the
story. If I knew that my death would
havo made the third term tradition mora
sacred I am sorry I could not die for my
country.
"Prison for me is like going to war.
Before me is the spirit of George Wash
ington, behind that of McKlnley."

LONDON, Nov. 22.-A battle mired to
day along the entire lino of fortifications
at Tchntftlju, according to dispatches
from Constantinople. The Bulgarians
began sgnln their efforts to break through
the Turkish linos, but so fsr have been
prevented from doing so by the fires ot
the Turkish worships.
LONDON, Nov. a "Come and tako
them," tho defiant reply ot the Turks to
tho demand mado by the allied Balkan
nations for tho ovncnatlon of the line of
fortifications at Tchatalja, In front of
Constantinople, Is not believed In dip
lomatic circles necessarily to menu the
end of tho negotiations for an armistice
oven though fighting has been resumed.
From Sofia comes word today that thi
victorious In Vml era are likely to modify
their conditions. Tho European powers
at tho same tlmo aro exerting themsolves
to lndueo tho nations composing tho Ral-
Kan joaguo to urine thoir terms more
Into lino with tho tacts of the situation
nnd to nrrango a treaty which will glvo
them all they havo conquered but will
lelivo out that which has not been con
uuerod. Compured with Its earlier disastrous
experiences tho Turkish army evidently
now considers Itself In a favorablo posi
tion. Military experts hero see In tho
temporary falluro of the Bulgarian -rush
Into Constantinople signs of a reaction
among tho Invaders nftor their otforts of
tlo past month.
In view of the fact that Urn Ottoman
capital; eyon It oapturud ruust ultimately
wviiuBniu 111 nuvoruance wun inn

the allies have nothing to gain by In
sisting on tho surrender ot the lines
which form virtually tho gates of tho
Cltly. Hence tho hope expressed by dlplo
in'ata ytt ths demand Will be With
drawn, In which caso it Is thought that
Turkey rqcognlzing this it has no pros
pect of taking tho offensive for tho re
covery of Its lost territory would quickly
conclude that It has nothing to gain by
continuing tho conflict. ,It would perhaps
agreo to enter into negotiations on th
basis of a surrender of all but a reason
able strip of territory at the back of
Constantinople, tho Dardanelles and the
Uosphurus.
Why Turks Objected to Terms.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. Sl-Tho re
jection by Turkey of the conditions of.
fercd for an armlstico between the op.
posing nrmlcs has been communlcutcd to
tho Bulgarian government. ,
Ono of the cannon for tho rojectlon wan
the opinion hold in official circles In Con
stantinople that tho conditions proposed
by tho nlllos deprived tho TurkH ot thn
possibility of resuming hostilities In tho
event of tho plenipotentiaries failure to
settle on terms. This, from tho Turkish'
