the land, of aiding in the destruction
which brought loss of life in Los An
geles, and of carrying on a "reign of
terror" declared to be unparalleled in
the history of the country.
Almost the entire executive staff of
the International Association of Bridge
& Structural Iron Workers was con

now remain out of Jail.

At the head of the list of those con
victed stands Frank Moran, the presi

members, that John J. McNamara was
secretary-treasurer while he conducted
the dynamitings out of which the pres
ent convictions grew.
Today's convictions, coming on a
scale unprecedented in a Federal Court,
were an aftermath of the killing of 21
persons in the blowing up of the Los
Angeles Times building on October 1.

as "Christmas presents" after the fatal
explosion in Los Angeles, and that he
aided in concealing evidence wanted In
California. He is secretary of the

on the French steamer La Touraine, is
awaited with keen interest by officials
of the Departments of State and Com

A severe southwest gale.- accom

this section about midnight and con

f ABERDEEN, Wash... Dec. 28. (Spe
cial.) Heroic work by the Westport
llfesaving-crew was all that saved the
officers and men, 30 in all. of the Brit
ish four-masted bark Torrisdale, which
went ashore a half mile south of the
jetty near the entrance to Grays Har
bor early today.
It was the fate of the vessel's crew
to realize that they were drifting to a
most certain aeath for several hours
before the Torrisdale finally struck.
Seven hours' work in a lifeboat in one
of the worst '-seas ever known along
tb- coast was the form of Providence
that" saved Captain Collins and his men.
Th Torrisdale lies a total wreck on
her beam ends and wlth .warves dashing
over her; not more than 800 yards from
high water line. Her back is broken,
and her crew aver that she was leaking
badly when she finally laid over.
Strike Follows Crash.
Th Torrisdale struck at 4:15 o'clock,
not more than 20 minutes after she had
crashed into the end of the south Jetty.
Shift in ballast three days ago had
rendered the bark unmanageable, ana
she fought against a certain fate.
Accordine- to the story gleaned
meagerly from various men of her crew,
it was Wednesday night when high
n-inrix nnri heavv soas shifted the Tor-
rlsdale's ballast. So heavy was the sea
at the time that all work to trim the
vessel was fruitless, and, totally unre
sponsive to her rudder, tie DarK

On Thursday an attempt was made
to enter Grays Harbor. The bar was
rough, and in her crippled condition
rintain Collins thought the venture un-
safe. Instead, he attempted to stand
out to sea beyond tne aanger zone.
-nrnri were airalnst him and he was
gradually beaten back, untinast night
the Torrisdale was but a few miles
from the coast.
Gale Worst In Years.
The e-ale. one of the worst of several
years here, sprang up before 10 o cjock.
Rv 11 o'clock the wind velocity was
not less than 60 miles, says Captain
Collins. He realized that ne couia not
hold his bark's head to the sea and that
he must pile up on the coast. At that
he took a long chance' and attempted
to stee.r for the Grays Harbor entrance
by the Westport light. He missed it
