elapsed sines tbs steamer Eastland
sank at Its wharf, with 2S00 excursion
ists on board. Investigation to de
termine blame for the accident had
simmered down to a Federal Grand
Jury inquiry, although a County Grand
Jury today continued to bear testi
mony, and Secretary Redflelda of the
Zepartment of Commerce, went ahead
'J with the steamboat Inspection esaml-
nation required by law. Federal Judge
Landta forbade tho examination by
others of witnesses desired for the
Federal Grand Jury and had taken
possession of the vessel and all docu-
mentary evidence available. Secretary
r Kedfield today took notice of adverse
criticism of his Inquiry, and In a speech
before the hearlnr ssld he wss pro
foundly pained by the attacks made on
. him before ha had had time to delve
into the case. He offered to make any
ort of an investigation anyone could
suggest provided charges were prop
"; erly filed against anyone.
J Kedfield Says Me Feels Hart.
' Secretary Redfleld issued this state
ment: - I am in entire accord with Mr.
- o'Hara on this subject. I am willing
- and ready to search every corner and
r cranny for tho nltimate truth as re-
gsrds the United States Inspection
service and the Eastland dlssster. I
, came to Chicago for that purpose, and
y purpose has never wavered.
-I am sorry; J am hurt. 1 have been
mistreated and prejudged by the Chi
cago press and by Chicago citlxens.
"Mr. Thurman. the solicitor for my
department, a man whose Judgment In
legal mattera I am bound to follow,
has told me that to widen this in
vestigation as Mr. O'Hara asks would
be beyond my power. . I would be
disobeying the law and breaking my
i oath of office In doing; as he asks.
' I have already stretched the law to
the breaking point in this Inquiry by
sending to Washington for expert wit
nesses In an effort to- bring out the
truth and the whole of It- I cannot
I go further In that direction.
Fall Investigation FrossUed.
I Bew glvo to the cltlsena of Chi
cago my solemn promise that If charges
are presented to me as head of the
Pepartment of Commerce of the Na-
tlon against either individual In
spectors, or the service as a whole.
r those charges will have my fullest
consideration and my undivided atten
tion, and I will spars neither time,
energy nor money in arriving at the

'. fens that such charges have not yet
been presented. They have been asked
for. but thua far they are wanting. I
will not hold any man to public
corn: I will not condemn any man un
til that man has had an opportunity
to bo heard."
One body was recovered from the
Eastland today, making the total dead
til. Sixteen more names were stricken
from the mlslng list today, leaving 142
unaccounted for. These make the max
