Los Angeles, Dec. 5—James li. Mc-
Namara's brief confession, penned by
his own hand lute yesterday, und
bearing many evidences of a mun little skilled in letters, was made public.   It N as follows:
"I, James li. McNamara, -defendunt
in the case ot tbe People, having
heretofoie pleaded guilty to the crime
of murder, desire to make this statement of fact (nnd this is the truth):
"On the night of September :il>th,
llllll*, at 5:45 p.m., I placed in Ink
Alley, a portion of the Times building, a suitcase containing sixteen
sticks of SO per cent, dynamite, set
to     explode  at  1   o'clock  the     next
orning. It waa thc intention to
injure the building and scare the owner. I did not intend to take the liie
of anyone. I sincerely regret tbut
theEC unfortunute men lost their lives. If the giving of life would bring
them back, I would gladly give it. In
fact, on plegding guilty to murder in
the tirst degree, I have placed my life
in the hands ot the state.

Indianapolis, Ind., De,-. 4— Behind
the doors ot the vaults of thc federal building here tonight, silently
watched by two guards, the books
and documents which are believed to
contain evidence nf criminal conspiracy for dynamiting that will involve
an "Inner Circle" of nearly two score
ol men and unlock th? complete sre-
ret of a reign of crime which has resulted in the confessions of John J.
McNamara and James B.  McNamara.
"My investigations of the books
and documents of the International
Association of Bridge and Structural
Iron Workers produce evidence which
tended to show that nearly 40 persons were in touch with John J. McNamara previous to hi< arrest and
that these persons were up to no
good," said Prosecuting Attorney
Frnnk  P,  Farker here lonight.
"A number of the letters In the records of thc iron workers which were
first seized by thc Indiana authorities
nnd later turned over to the federal
authorities, show nothing on the surface, but the very manner in which
they were written proves that they
conveyed a message that would not
be understood to the casual reader,"
continued thc prosecutor.

Inttumanity to Woman
Victoria, Dec. 2—The liquor license
'of Mr. and Mrs. Bell, of the Clinton
hotel, about thirty miles from Ashcroft, hus been cancelled by Attorney
General Bowser, in consequence of
inhumanity and callous indifference ot
the licensee on the occasion of the
death several weeks ago of Mrs. Barlow, of Victoria. While in the death
throes of consumption, she was refused shelter in the hotel on the
ground that it was full up nnd the
other guests objected to consumptives. She died in an uutomobile out
side the hostelry, after being exposed to the intense cold lor two hours.
In the police court yesterday, Coil
Porter (who was recently brought
back from Prince Albert on a charge
cf stealing certain articles (rom the
C.P.R.) appeared to answer to the
above charge. Several witnesses lor
the prosecution were beard, the ac -
cused reserved his defence and waived
the reading ot the evidence.
Mayor Hamilton, the presiding
magistrate, then formally committed
the accused to stand his trial at the
next court of competent jurisdiction.

ecution, and Charles Gillan for the
As it is expected that a county

Industrious Honey-MakEr
There ure more than live thousand
beekeepers in Ontario, keeping nt
least ono hun-dred thousand hives ot
hues, baid Mr. Morley Pitt, provin -
rial apiarist of Ontario, speaking on
"Beekeeping for Women" belore Women's institute. Many ol theBe are
placed near kitchen doors, where th*.'
women at work cun "have an eye out
lor swarms." This is oltea u matter
ol convenience for the men who aro
interested in the bees, hut in many
rases the women do practically nil the
work of the apiary. So the question
is settled right on thc start that women can and Ho keep bees.
But why do they do it? It may Ive
for thc honey. That is H fit and
legitimate reason, for honey in u
wholesome and delicious addition to
thc family table.
lt. muy he lor the money. That also Ih a legitimate and lit reason. A
few hives of bees given a Utile attention at the right time will give their
owner five dollars* or so each per annum almost anywhere in Ontario. By
making bees ft specialty men and women all over America are
comfortable incomes. Plenty of women
nre wearing thrmselves out in offices
and schools who might make as much
money nnd more health anil happiness
in their own apiaries with a small
outlay of I'apital and somo eipcr -
Bees can lie bought in modern hives
nt prices varying from $2 to $10 per
hive (or colonyj. An apiary of one

all modern appliances will not

The host time to begin is in May,
when onalhas the summer ahead, and
if through inexperience the hoes are
killed hy the following winter, one
will have bid at least one season's
experience. For that same season it is
best to start with only a few, then
the various loses incident to inexperience arc  n.l  so great
There are a great many kinds of
hives in ime, hut the l.angstroth

will for many reasons do well to adopt the ten-frame or twelve-frame
size ot this hive. The bees should he.
Italians and free from disease. The
latter point is most important. Iu
ease of any doubt, thc local inspector ol apiarirs should he called. His
services can be secured by writing to
the minister of agriculture, parliament buildings, Toronto.
The following is u gooil beginner's

Italian, in teii-fianie Imngstroth hive
complete with qtteoii excluder, extracting super same sine aB brood chamber, and cove.r. Three extra hives,

may he kept is only limited by the
apiarist's ability to direct the labor
of others.
Thc bee territory of Ontario is hy
no means fully occupied. One apiary
of oae hundred colonies, in a region
where some sei-d alsike is grown, averaged in 1903 eighty pounds of white,
extracted honey per colony, and was
increased to one hundred and thirty
colonics. That was by uo moans a
large crop. The seed close to thc
aPiary was a splendid yield, while one
and a half miles away it wus uot
worth thresh'nr, showing that th?
bees have not louiul it necessary to
go that far for honey, und the fertilization ol those blossoms has heen
neglected. With due respect* to already established apiaries there ' is
plenty of territory where fruit and
seed growers are sulTcring heavy loss
for lack of bees to fertilize their bloi
soms. and where thousands of -dollars worth ot honey is wasted annually for lack of bees to gather it.
The market for honey is only in its
in'ancy. This daintiest of foods is
practically unknown in most Canadian homes, lt is almost never advertised. At present it does not need j enough,
to he. It is picked up so rapidly at The problem of swarm contral is

also prefer to fly or motor or cycle,
but  they   usually  learn to walk  tirst.
A good location for the apiary is
the orchard on account oi the shade,
but the progressive farmers cultivate
their orchards uow, it may be neces -
i- iry to choose some other spot where
th- hives will get shade in tbe hottest
part of thc day. Them should be a

After disease, the main difficulties
ol beekeepinp are wintering and
swarm control.
The requisites Ior good wintering
are. firstf a good queen and plenty of
hoes in the hive, and plenty ol good
.-tores. Thtn tho hive must be put
into a dark dry room, in the cellar,

temperature of about 12-45- degrees,

a posse, had to run to the outskirts
of the town, where they barricadod
themselves behind logs at the foot of
an embankment and opened fire on
their pursuers. Rifles, shotguns and
sticks of dynamite were used with
which to dislodge the men. After
Foote had been shot into unconscious
