Man Accused of Being Implicated in
Dynamiting Outrage at Los Angeles
Not Known Here
(From Monday's Daily.)
          John J. McNamara who was arrested in Indianapolis Saturday evening, on the charge of being implicated in the dynamiting of the Llewellyn iron works at Los Angeles, Cal., last December, is not related to the members of the McNamara family in Shelby county.  The Democrat talked with persons of that name who live in VanBuren township over the telephone today, but they said they had never heard of McNamara until after his arrest.
          Sentiment locally about the outcome of McNamara's trial is somewhat divided.  Some criticism of the manner in which the accused man was spirited out of the state in a big automobile has been heard from certain quarters.  McNamara was taken to Chicago Saturday night.  Governor Marshall today gave out a newspaper interview in which he stated that no more persons would be extradited before they had had the opportunity of having a court hearing.
