The two McNamaras are now the only clients of the attorneys retained by labor or- ganizations and their legal fire will be turned on Ortie McManigal, the man arrested as a fellow conspirator. With the arrival in Chicago of Wil- liam J.

They are now in Europe and the police of Germany and Russia have been asked to arrest them. These men are Matthew A. Schmidt, former- ly of Chicago, member of the wood- workers and joiners union, accused of having helped James B. McNamara to carry the nitroglycerine used to blow up the Times plant, and David H.

Other Witnesses In Breach of Promise Suit Assail Miss Young's Character. CLEVELAND, O., April trial of the breach of promise suit of Miss Georgian Young against James W. Corrigan, adjourned at noon today, will not be completed until next week. Judge Killits protested to the attor- neys against dragging in the names of innocent people as witnesses. Miss Young's character has been at- tacked rather freely by witnesses for Corrigan. J. J. McKesson, Plttsburg agant for Corrigan, McKinney Co., was a damaging witness. He said he first saw Miss Young and her mother on a street car. The latter asked him for his name, then introduced him to her daughter, and asked him to buy them a drink, he testified. It was McKesson who introduced Miss Young to Corrigan. He said that Corrigan and Miss Young spent a night in his apartments. Corrigan himself on the stand, con- tradicted Miss Young's story at al- most every point. He was grilled by her attorneys. Corrigaa admitted on the witness stand today that at the time he sent for Miss Young to join him at French Lick Springs, Ind., he had gone there to recover from the shock of his fath- er's death. It was at this time that WASHINGTON, April com- mlttee on invalid pensions of which Representative Anderson is a member will organize tonight. It was this committee that Anderson moved to have discharged from further consid- eration of the Anderson pension bill. The members of the committee will ask his reason for taking such an ac- tion at the meeting tonight. Anderson has made a great hit In Washington bv his bill to reduce ex- orbitant telephone service. The tele- phone monopoly heVe has been charg- ing as high as a month for a tele- phone. In an interview today Ander- son said. "In Ohio where the telephone busi- ness is at its best the rates vary of course, in various town and cities, but in no case are we compelled to put up with such superior rates and such Inferior service as we are right here In the capitol of the nation. "It might be suggested that the low- er rates in communities other than this have for their basis the fact that thete is a certain amount of competi- tion In the telephone business. In Washington there is a monopoly and there should be regulation. It is a surprise to me that there has not been an effort made to provide for the regu- lation of rates, at a basis somewhere near justice." Representative Francis, of Ohio, has secured a correction of the Congres- sional Record to show that he voted for the Canadian reciprocity bill He was reported as not voting. .6th of November, 1900, and tor many I the couple admit that they had in- lays prior thereto, and participated j timate relations after.
