INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. D. For the flrtt
time In public since his arrest nineteen
months ago, Ortlo K. McManlgal related
Rt the trial of the accused forty-five
"bomb plotters" today his experiences as
a. hired dynamiter.
The confessed accomplice of the Mc
Namara brothers, as a government wit
ness, directly accussd Herbert 8. Hockln,
now International secretary of Uio As
oclatlon of Bridgo and Structural Iron
Workers, of Inducing him to do dynamit
ing under pay of the union.
Ho said Hockln had threatened to boy
cqtt him from every Job If ho refused
to accept the dynamiting commission
McManlgal told how for more than four
years he caused explosions about the
country against employes of nonunion
At the outset McManlgal asserted he at
tempted to protect tho lives of people
whenever setting off a bomb. Vt his
first Job In Detroit June 25. 1907, ho told
of pushing a garbage barrel against the
rear door of a restaurant so the people
would not run out and be Injured or
killed In an explosion across an alley.
What Hockln Snld.
"I had been" a' member of the Iron work
ers' union since 1903," said McManlgal.
"In June, 1907, Hockln came to mo while
I was working on the Ford building in
Detroit arid said that the union had de
cided to clean out tho open shop con
cerns and that I was the man to do It.
" 'You used ,to work In a stone quarry
and you know how to use explosives,! he
said. '1'ou'U bo paid by the union.'
"I protested, but ho told me that It I
didn't do as the executive board said he'd
sec that I was boycotted against getting
i iob.pso I finally consented.
"I tv ent. Jatllfi. otono quarry of my
uncle, William Benin, at' Blbomvlllo, O.,
Juno" and brought back to Detroit, In
a , suit case," thtrty-flvo pounds of dyna
mited some fuses and caps.
"I 'told Uockln I had .tho dynamite In
my rom. Ho said: 'All right, You'vo
gone this far and you had better pull oft
tho Job between 1 and 2 a. m. in the
"In my room -I prepared three bombs,
each with fifty feet of fuse. I then went
back to the Ford building and waited In
an alley to see If there were any police
about. Seeing none I put one bomb In
the fire box of the boiler In the building
under construction, another In an air
compressor, and a third near the cylinder.
Plant Pint llombs.
"Joining the ends of the fuse at ono
point, I lit all of them. They were fixed
to go off at about 1 a. in. It was then
10 p, m.
"I again looked about the alley. I no
tlced a kitchen dbor at tho rear of "a
restaurant opened on tho alley opposite
where the bombs were, and thinking some
people might run out at the first explo
sion and bo Injured by the second or
third, I Bhut the door and Jammed a
barrel of garbage against It. Then I went
to my room and waited to hear the
"It came about 1 o'clock. Later I heard
the newsboys calling 'extra!'
"It reminded me I still had some ex
plosives In my room. What should I do
wltfi. thorn? I didn't dare to go out with
a package. That would excite suspicion.
So I took what dynamite I had left to
tho bathroom und cutting It Into small
pieces flushed It out.'
"Did you see Hockln tho -next day?"
asked District Attorney Miller.
"Yes, he paid me JM for expenses to
Bloomvllle. He said I would bo fully
compensated for my work as the execu
tlve board had set aside a certain amount
for each Job but, he said, I must keep at
it. He said I would receive $125 for a Job

Bandit Killed by
Trainman Had Flask
of Nitroglycerin
DELTA, Cal.. Nov. 9. When the un
identified bandit, who held up the Shasta
limited here last night, pitched headlong
from the engine cats dying, he carried
In his coat pocket a pint flask of Nitro
glycerin. If the bullet that killed him had struck
the flask the resultant explosion would
havo killed the engineer and fireman, al
most beyond doubt, and possibly It might
have blown up the locomotive boiler,
Tho shock of the bandit's fall from tho
cab, had he struck otherwise, was more
than sufficient In Itself to set off tho Pint
of destruction .he carried, but the flask
was not even cracked.
Fuller details of the robbery today
show that Jim Yoakum, the head
brakeman of the train, not Thorb San
ford, as first reported, shot tho robber.
His bullet bored him through the neck.
Mortally wounded, the bandit fired three
shots from the cab at Yoakum, none of
which took effect. Then he stumbled
head foremost to tho ground where he
lay In his death agony nnd hatred gave
him strength to fire twice more. Yoakum
escaped untouched and did not reply to
the fire.
Sheriff Montgomery- and a posse nl
rlved here from Itcddlng this morning,
but thus far they have no clue to tho

All Grades of Coal

CHICAGO, 111., Nov. 9.-Pr!ces on all
grades of coal wlU bo advanced with the
first touch of cold weather, according
to men closely connected with the coal
mining Industry, who summarized the
situation hero today. It was also argued
that becauso of the shortage of anthra
cite coal, due to labor difficulties and tho
lack of a reserve supply, the eastern and
middle west producing districts could tup-
ply only their Immediate territory.
Producers of anthracite coal, It was
said, faced a shortage of 20,000,000 tons
at the close of tho summer becauso of
labor difficulties and becauso the reserve
supply of 6,000,000 tons had been consumed
during tho extreme cold period of last
To overcome this jshortago, the produc
ers are confronted with the necessity of
2,600,000 tons' among more, than tho nor
mal production, the statisticians esti
mated. G. W. Clarke Elected

During the last four years two of the

trnnsfer the burden of the business to

with propositions to ink over this onor

one fixed idea regarding tho disposition
of the business, that those who succeeded

honor and Integrity; whon who would
keep intact tho good name of the flrnt
established through a quarter century
of' honorable merchandising.
In an Interview Mr. Ievy stated .that
