of the Investigation undertaken by the
federal grand Jwy here and the one In
Indianapolis, Ind., so far as could be
horned tonight, haa not been sharply
defined. fVivernmont officials; It Is
thought, will be able to determine only
after tho testimony of witnesses has pro
ceeded further whether to return Indict
ments hern, or In Indiana axalnut those
persons alleged to have been Implicated
in a conspiracy unlawfully to transport
explosives front one state to another.
Iloth James K and John J. McNamara

that I hey would tell nothing, even If
called before the grand jury. Oscar Las

saw them, but obtained little satisfac
tion. Whether they actually would ap
pear or not tonight wan a doubtful ques
tion. It was suggested that perhaps after
the McNamaras bad bad a tasta of prison
llfo and had been vMted by labor leaders
who sre aaxloua to cleanse organized la
bor of alleged charges of lawlessness and
ht might persuade them to aid the ends
of Justice, they might ba prevailed upon
to jfivo tho desired Information.
Dynamiter Continues glory.
Ortle K. McManlgal, confessed dyna
miter, today continued to tell the grand
Jury his experiences ns a dynamiter, and
ho was followed by J. W. Kaiser of
Muncle. Ind., a nitroglycerin manufac
turer, who says he sold explosives to J.
11. and J. J. McNamara as well as to
Ortla McManlgal. The latter corroborates
Kaiser's story. Though knowledge of
the proceedings before the grand Jury Is
kept secret. It Is assumed that Kslser,
who Identified J. J. McNamara In the
court room recently, told of the people
to whom he sold explosives.
F;ar1ler In the day John Crulkshank, a
railroad man, testified.
The evidence, gathered by District At
torney Fredericks to show that the Times
building was destroyed feloniously
smnunts almost to mathematical demon

103 persons stood in the building at tha
moment of the explosion. . Klghty-slz of
these represent witnesses from whom the
state gathered signed statements as to
the directions of the flames and debris. .
The placing of tha bomb and tha conse
quent effects are portrayed by photo

by the state recently. Deputy District
Attorneys Oeorgo Vcltch and J. A. Hill

By mathematical calculations on reduced
quantities of ' explosive,- with du'e con
sideration to resistance and other faotors,
an explosion was accomplished which.

tended to bring to court, but the federal
authorities now will have the benefit of

Methods of Farmers'
Held' to Bo Illegal
DECORA H, la.. Dec. l.-(Speclal)-members
of fxrmers' co-operative so
cieties will find much to Interest them
In a derision Just made by Judge Hob
son of the district court. In which he
held that farmers' co-operative compa
nies cannot enforce special requirements
from their members, but that they must
enter the open market on eo,ual terms
and In competition with others In the
same line of business. Itecause the
method complained of has been adopted
generally by co-operative companies the
decision Is likely to have a wide influ
ence In their business.
The Decorah farmers' Co-operative so
ciety, organized In 1908, has a by-law
which Is fn effect that any member of
tha society who sells hogs or ot.er live
stock to any other individual or com
pany must pay Into the farmers' com
pany treasury b cents per 100 pounds fur
the animals sold to competitors. This
virtually put competition at a disadvan
tage of not lesa than S cents a hundred
Officers of tha company, not content
with this, went into the open market
snd hid for hogs owned by persons who
were not members of the company. Henry
Reeves, a hog buyer, complained In a
petition filed thut such action was a
combination in restraint of trade. Tho
court sustained him and permanently en-
Joined the society from exacting a bonus
from those who sold to competitors.
