'^Hoke said that he was. i Negotiatfons for tnc trip were cqm- S raenced and consummated nuirkly, the price for the trip being at once Accepted. ;Then Hoke hesitated.

As a matter of pro fessional interest she was getting all the information she could about the old town of Cifachiqne. If any of the old Eettiers have a pretty clear recollection of that "Kansas Has Been" there is a man in this office who would like to talk with them. Mr. J. W.

McXaraaras purchase of five hundred |)ounds of nitro gelatin with a part of which he glew up the IJOS Angeles Times building, was dcEcribcd at the "dynamite conspiracy" trial today by George H. Phillips, assistant superintendent of a powder company. Phil- ll|is testified that on September 23, 1910, seven days before the IJOS Angeles explosion, he delivered to three men at the powder company's whart at Oakland, ten cases of explosive, each case weighing fifty pounds. One man, said the witness, was McX'amara. Another was a man "witij a bad left eye" and the third "looked like a Mexican." For the first time since the twenty- one persons were killed In the blowing up of the ijos Angeles Times building on October 1, 1910, James B. McNamara's detailed confession to having caused the explosion, with his motives for doing it and his comments on the fact that so many persons were killed, was related on the witness stand In the dynamite conspiracy trial yesterday.

San Francisco labor leaders, McManlgal testified, were named by McN'amara as having made arrangements for the Ix>s Angeles explosion, and as having furnished the two men ~F. A. Schmidt and I>avid Caplan— to assist in buying the high power nitroglycerin, "because Schmidt and Cap Ian had been regularly employed on the coast by the building trades council of California." Tveitmoe and Clan cy are among the forty-five defendants on trial. When he asked McNamara why he twisted off a gas jet in the basement of the Times building before the explosion, McManlgal testified thatthls conversation ensued: McManlgal—"Why did you break off the gas jet?" McXamara—"Because when the explosion occurred 1 wanted the whole building to go to hell." McManlgal-"And you knew there was so many people In there, too?" McNamara—"What's the difference, was to make a good cleaning out, and I did It. But I am Kvrry so many were killed. 1 hoped to got General Otis. "lie told mo he put the Infernal machines at the residences of General Harrison Gray Otis, proprietor of the Times, and of Felix J. Zechandlaar,, fsocrotary of the Merchants' and Manu farturer.s''assoclatlon, all to go off ait I o'clock In the morning. He said oil the way back east he was frightened by the people talking of the explosion. He said he could not bear to looKN^ny- body In the face and he thought everyone on the train was looking at him. At Salt Mke City, he said, he couldn't stand it any longer, so he stepped off the train and got In touch with J. E. Munsey, who hid him in his bouse for two weeks." He said that after nev«-« of the I ..OS .\ngeles explosion was published J. J, McXamara, secretar>- of the Iron Work crs' headquarterss in Indianapolis, sent him to Worcester, Mass., to cause an "echo" of the Pacific coast explosion in the east. "I want an echo of that Los Angeles^ affair in the east so if they catch J. B. they'll think they have the wrong man," McManlgal said was the way J. J. instructed him. McManlgal said he went to Worcester and caused two explosions there October 9. wisoN STJUtiS ON vncm "The Register says you can answer questions. Well, we have at onr house an old print called "The Russian Wedding Party,* which mother has bad since she' was a child. ^Vhat we want to know is who painted the picture from which the print was made. And if you can't answer the question you can put it up to the Register." That Is the way. it wa« "put up" to the young lady who alts at the desk yesterday. And she produced Ihe goo^! She discovered that the name of the painter was C Makovskl. So the Library has made good and the Register has been vindicated and everybody is happy. BooseTeirs Lead in CaUfoniia Xamw.

'By th" Assoriated Press) London, Xov. 15.—Announcement that the Bulgarian!, had reajched the vicinity of Kilios caused I military critics to believe that the final defeat of the Ottom&n troops is not far distant. Kilios is only three miles west of cape Rumelei at the Black Sea entrance to the Bosphorus. The dash of the Bulgarians seems to demonstrate that General SavofT. th« Bulgarian commander-in-chief, is not wholly de^iending on a frontal attack on Tchalaja. That early peace is assured is accepted as 4r^^bfagone conclusion but whether it will be brought about before or after the surrender of Constantinople is probably known only to King Ferdinand of Bulgaria and his advisers.

Topeka,' Xov. 13.—In answer to an announcement in large type on the front page of the current issue of the Appeal to Reason, the Socialist paper published at Girard, that Editor J. A. Wayland of, that paper was 'bounded to his death" by government detectives and attorneys, resultingiin his suicide last Sunday. U. S. District Attomejr Harr}- J. Bone last nl^t Issued the following statement cobceming the case: ' | "The suicide of Waylind Was without doubt caused by tbeji" " be made as a result ofj Invostlgntions made byj [disclosurea to the vigorous the government concerning the methods of the Appeal to Reason and of Its staff, which dnul>tln.''s will be made public within the next few days. Developments resiiKing from, J>he reports of the federal grand jury and from other sources will reveal the righteousness of the governments course of action and contentions. "The government was In poascssion of sufficient facts to establish beyond dnirbt. among other serious charges, that of perjury against J. A. Wayland. an dotlier serious charges against Way land and members of the Appeal and associated publlcatlohs. Statements made by Wayland shortly prior to hta death are proof that he had learned of some of the results of the investigations being conducted by the government, and he stated within the. last few days before his suicide that he would not be able to stand the disgrace which would result from the disclosure of the facts about to be made public. Way land's suicide, in the eyes of the government. Is a convincing proof of his guilt. I understand that action has been taken by Kansas and Misscuri authorities which. will further bear out the government's contentions. "The false affidavit made by one Lovejoy. published in the Appeal, was nothing more than a repetition of and on a part with the faked and false stories pubMshed by the Appeal In con nection with tbe~ faked disappearance of George Shoaf of the Appeal to Rea-, son .who had claimed to have discovered a plot of General Otis, the publisher of the Los Angeles Times, himself instigaUng the dynamiting of the; Times building, which malicious and; ridiculous lie was properly disproved^ by the confession of the BfcNamaras. whom Shoaf and the Appeal were try- < ing to shield."
