Association of this city. Mr. Ielb is

were flrstf made that Mr. Lelb had vio

With reference to the rumored de

wMch the present action Is based nor do I
know Vy whom they were preferred.
Charge of pernicious activity in politics,
coRtrary to civil service rules, wore pre
ferred against me some time ago by the
CHrtl Service Commission. I had a hearing
hi that time and. although I did not receive
ao official report on the subject, I was
pfvoM to understand that the charges had
Veen wittsfactorily answered. Later, addi
tional charges wore made by the Civil Serv
ice Commission that 1 had collected cam
paign contributions from Government em
p lor ow. I also answered these, and as I had
not heard any more about the case, I.
thought the matter had been dropped.

DENVER, Sep. 13. The International
Building Trades Council revised its con
stitution today. The principal revision Is
In regard to public works. The body has
taken a strong stand against the award
of general contracts for municipal and
state buildings and establishments. The
constitution, as revised, makes the abo
lition of the contract system one of the
principal objects of the council'- en
deavor. The establishment of a univer
sal eight-hour day and settlement of all
disputes and affairs arising within the
body itself without the interference of
outside bodies, were two other amend
ments adopted. Outside of these matters,
the new constitution, so far as prepared,
makes no radical changes.
A communication was received from the
grand secretary of the Brotherhood of
Maintenance of Way Employes, calling on
the Trades Council to furnish 2000 house
carpenters for work at the Panama Canal.

and Xroan Association.
SACRAMENTO, CaL, Sept 12. Brought
from his prison cell to confront his al
leged associate In the boodllng combine
of last Winter, Harry Bunkers, ex-State
Senator from San Francisco, made a com
plete confession today on the witness
stand In Judge Hart's courtroom, where
the trial of E. J. Emmons, one of the
quartet of the State Senate indicted by
the grand Jury, was In progress.
From the moment of his entry to the
courtroom until he left it, pale and per
spiring, three hours later. Bunkers was
the central figure In one of the most dra
matic exposes in criminal trials of this
state. He left nothing untold, and In his
eagerness to unbosom himself he fore
stalled the objections of the defense with
statements relating to the motives and
actions of the four disgraced legislators.
Much of this was stricken from the testi
mony. Bunkers detailed the plan of campaign,
which he says was one whereby the build
ing and loan associations of the state
were to be "held up" and compelled to
pay for "protection. He told also of re
ceiving money, stating that Joseph John
son had dropped his roll of $350 In his
pocket as he stood In the stree't. Just as
Jordon said he did. and had said that
Emmons received his share but two min
utes before.
Lastly, Bunkers told of the terror and
fright that followed the expose In the
Senate: of a hasty conference held In
Emmons' room over the disposal of the
marked bills, and of the suggestions that
were made to clear themselves of guilt.
Bunkers was still on the stand when court
adjourned for the day.
