Los Angeles, Cal., May 3. The ar
raignment of John J. and J. B. Mc
Namara, arrested in connection with
the destruction of the Los Angeles
Times plant here October 1 last, will
be held either tomorrow afternoon or
Friday. But the men will be charged
not with the actual explosion of
dynamite under the Times building
and the killing of 21 men, but some
supplementary crime connected with
the Times explosion.
This was the announcement today
of District Attorney Fredericks.
Colncldentally, Fredericks confirmed
the report that Judge Walter Bord
well will try the case.
Fredericks said that he will confer
with Judge Bordwell tomorrow and
at the conference the exact date of
the arraignment of the two brothers
and possibly Ortle McManlgal, their
alleged confederate, will be deter
mined. The move of the district attor
ney's office In rviot charging the ac
cused men with the direct destruction
of the Tlmias plant was explained by
Fredericks as an attempt on the part
of the prosecution to keep their ev
idence in the case undisclosed until
they had an opportunity to perfect
certain portions of It.
Indictments charging Kther crimes
than the destruction of tho Times
plant already have been returned,
Fredericks said. He refused to Bay
what was alleged In them.
