BOIIDWEa FUYS STEFFINS THE IPXAMABA JUDGE GITES OUT A SCATHING STATEMEHT. Declares Steffeai an Aaarekbt and Makes Other Intereatiag Bemrits About Ulm. Los Angeles. Cal., Dec. 6.—JudgeJ Bordwell, after sentencing the Mc- Kamaras, gave out a statement which Is a cutting .arraignment of Lincoln Steffena, the magazine writer who published a long article in which he claimed credit for having brought about the- "compromise" Which resulted In the plea of guilty.. Referring to this artltele. Judge BordweU said: >-ot Inflneneed by Steffena. ^ "In the first place, the claim or sugn gestlon that the termination of the cases was .due to the efforta of himself and other outsiders who undertook to influence the officers of the court—other than the judge—is with out Justification in factl "I also wish to denounce the claim of that gentleman and of other persons for him that the Change of the pleas in these cases irom 'not guilty' t<r 'guilty*' was due to his efforts, as groundless and untrue. He js correct in the statement that the court ]va8 jiot a iMirty to any n(^tiatIonB for any claim that he Induced the prosecution to come to an'^tigreement in the matter. The district attorney acted entirely without regard to Mr. Steffens and on lines decided upon before the latter appeared on the scene. Bribery DcTclopments DM It. "As to the defensethe public ca^ rely on it that the developments of last week as to bribery and attempted bribery of Jurors In the James B. Mc- Xamara case were the efficient cause of the change of pleas which suddenly brought these cases to an end. The district attorney could have had James B. McNamara's plea ef guilty long ago If he had been willing to dismiss the cases against the brother hut he refused insisting that the latter was guilty and should suffer punishment. "The first proposlton from those interested In the defense were that James B. McNamara should ^hange his plea from 'not guilt' to 'guilty' on condition that he should not be sentenced to death and that his brother should go free. The district attorney would not agree. James Offered to Die. "Afterward emissaries from the defense brought to the district attorney the proposition that James B. McNamara would plead guilty and be sen tenced to death If the court so ordered, provided that his brother should be saved. But the district attorney still would not agree. ^ "Those Interested in oie defense continued to urge his acceptance of the last proposition for ten days or more, and until the bribery develop- menta revealed the desperation of the defense and paralyzed the effort to save John J. McNamara by sacrificing his brother. Then It was that the change of the pleas of these men was forthcoming. Steffens' Idea "OffenslTe." "The notion broached in the Steffens article that the McNamaras, In the commission of the crimes, as confessed by them, are 'two heroes' Is offensive to common intelligence and repellant to the conscience of all Just men—to say nothing of the abhorrence of the law for such sentiment; and 1 am confident that the district attorney was not influenced by any such sentiment in considering the proposal that the defendants should with draw their pleas of 'not guilty.' "U|)on the entries of the plean tA 'guilty' both defendants placed themselves upon the mercy of the court and the .responsibility—sole and undivided—developed upon tBe court to determine the punishment That some mitigation of the extreme penalties •lemandable .-^y the outraged law might reasonably be expected In con- -equence of the change of pleas In these cases Is in accordance with the principle comu'only accepted in the adtulnUtratfon of criminal Jurisprudence. All MuHt Respect Law. "That expectation has not been disappointed in these cases. At the same time, the duty of the court in fixing tha penalties 'n these cases would »iave been unperforrao'l had It been swayed in any degree, by the hypothetical policy favored by Mr. Steffens (who. by the way is a professed anurchli-'t), that the Judgment of the court should b<> directed to the promotion of compromise In iho controversy between 'caplial and Ibbor.' "The lesson taugh* iiy these cases !« that Mie Ian must be rigorously enforced against all offeaders—whether they be nrh <?r poor, ht«h or low, capitalists or InborerE—and that only by obedleu<:e to,-Iaw can society be maintained or Its blessings enjoyed."
