presence of mind of Silas Smith, brake

would have been one of the worst In the
history of Western railroading.
Delayed by Jts Engine.
Train No. 3 had stopped at. Bridal Veil
station, and was delayed there by-its en

car of the train, the Pullman sleeper from
Walla Walla, picked up by the Spokane
train at Wallula Junction, was, standing
opposite the depot. Flagmen had been
sent back 15 telegraph poles, or the re
quired distance of about 2000 feet, to flag

were also placed on the track. When
about fdur miles cast of Bridal Veil, the

The Injector -pipe "broke inside the cab
of engine 193, letting out a flood of steam
and driving the engineer and the fire
man out of the can. Engineer Swain
reached for the .throttle, .to. stop, the en

track and realized the . Spokane. Flyer
was ahead on the main track and rushed
back into the cloud of burning steam that
filled the cab in the effort -to stop the
flying train. He- groped about- for the
levers he could not see, fearing even to
breathe in the deadly atmosphere, suf
fering tortures to his scorched hands and
face, and. Anally baffled, was compelled
to retreat to the engine tender. Both he
and the fireman then leaped 'to the cbn

ORBGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Peb. 6. At the request of Senators
Ankcny and Piles and Representative
Humphrey. President Roosevelt today or
dered that a searching investigation be
madeanto the 'disaster to the steamship
Valencia. This Investigation will be inde
pendent of that now being conducted by
inspectors of the steamboat Inspection ser
vice. The request of the three members of the
Washington delegation was made at the
instance of tho people of Washington
State. They informed the President that
ihe people of their state are highly
wrought up over this affair and unhesi
tatingly express the opinion that an In
vestigation by two steamboat inspectors
will never bring out the facts or result In
the punishment of those .guilty of neglect
or cowardice. What they want and de
mand" Is a -commission composed of big,
broad-gauge men who would not be. sus
ceptible to local influence, and who would
luivc the ability to get at facts which
might be concealed from the two Inspect
ors. President Acts Promptly.
The President took up the matter imme
diately with Secretary Mctcalf. and It was
at first Intended that the board which In
vestigated tho cause of the Slocura disas

the Valencia. That was found Imprac
ticable. Mr. Mctcalf then announced that
the commission would consist of Assist
ant Secretary Lawrence O. Murray, of the
Department of Commerce and Labor; Her
bert Knox Smith, Assistant. Deputy Com
missioner of Corporations, both of whom
were, members of the SJocum board, and

Secretary Root has takon up with the

view to preventing further serious acci

WASHINGTON. Feb. 6. Reports con

agents in China regarding the rapia
Increase of feeling against Amorlcans
and things American as expressed in
edicts issued by local authorities In
various parts of the empire. For six
months the situation In China has been
tho subject of very genuine concern
to the department, and Mr. Rlckhlll

dcr" Instructions to keep Washington
thoroughly and frequently informed of
thi. situation. He is also exerting him
self at the Chinese capital In' an effort
to check or allay the anti-foreign feel
Ing that appears to be growing. While
not admitting that the situation is one
of danger, the officials here would not
be at all surprised at any developments
that a month may bring forth.
Although at the outset demanding
only a return to the provisions of the
original exclusion treaty of 1SS0, which
excluded from this country Chinese
laborers without specifying the class
es of Chinamen which should be ad
mitted. In some provinces manifestos
have been issued declaring that, if the
boycott is rigidly adhered to, Ameri
cans will be forced to forgo any ex
clusion at all. Such, expressions have
been immediately denied by Mr. Rock
hill at Pekin.
Although directed primarily against
Americans, the feeling of ill-will that
seems to be growing in various parts
of the Empire is interpreted by Ori
entalists to have a far deeper mean
ing. In a word, it Is declared to be
anti-foreign and there are indications
that all foreigners, with the possible
exception of Japanese, will soon be as
keenly affected as are Americans.
Other Nations Consult.
Informal representations regarding
the Chinese situation already have been
exchunged between some of the Euro
peanpowers, but thus far this country
has not called foreign nations into con
sultation because there Is a very gen

than before the Boxer rising. He added:
The persistent American boycott la stirring
up much trouble and there Is danger that
the Chinese mar extend the boycotting prin
ciple. Inevitably leading to a general antl-
forelgn feeling among the more Ignorant

curred Just across the river from the Amer

that such, a pro-foreign official as VIceroy

Departments Worked. To-i
CHICAGO, Feb. 6. The unique spectacle
was presented in the. beefpackers trial
today of the Attorney-General of the
Ulnted States denying the accuracy of an
official statement made by tho President.
Mr. Moody was called upon by John S.
Miller, attorney for Armour & Co.. to ad
mit the authenticity of a copy of tho let
ter of Mr. Roosevelt on the subject of tho
beef-trust inquiry. He did so, but added
that the President's statement that the
Departments of Justice and of Commerce
and Labor were working together in the
matter was incorrect. This assertion
caused much excitement among tho attor
neys for the packers, and they objected to
it as improper before the Jury. The letter
was not offered In evidence, but was
marked for identification.
Not Actings In XFnisou.
The Attorney-General declared that he-
would admit the authenticity of the letter.
subject to Its. verification by J. A. Kratz,
his private secretary. The letter as pro
duced in court by tho attorneys for tho
packers was a copy of the original docu
ment as it appeared in a published ac
count of the proceedings in the United
States Senate. The Attorney-General read
the letter and then rose to his fet.
If it please the court, he said. T feel
it my duty upon reading this letter to say
in regard to this sentence which it con
tains, 'With my permission, the Depart
ment of Justice and the Department of

Packers Lawyers Staggered.
All the lawyers rose to their feet at the
words of the Attorney-General, several of
themadar,esslng the court excitedly,

"I understand that the Attorney-General
