Intercede With the Government
Seattle, Feb. 4. Convinced that
the Clallam Investigation, as con
ducted by Marino Inspectors Whit
ney and Turner Is nothing but a
farce, and convinced that Is will
eventually -result in a whitewash un
less the Inspectors are forced by
oTitsldo influence to chango N their
present tactics, the local lodge of
Elks will insist that the government
authorities at Washington designate
competent counsel to be present at
the further sessions ot the inquiry,
and be given the right to cross
The Elks, who are determined that'
'tho real facts shall bo brought to
light, and that those responsible for
the death of the 54 victims of the
disaster shall be made to suffer,
held another meeting last night and
discussed the investigation thor
oughly. Tho Inspectors were
roundly censured for their palpable
efforts to shield Captain Roberts,
and for trying to release tho Puset
Sound Navagation company from
all responsibility in tho affair.
It was decided that the Elks
should again appeal to tho Wash
ington authorities, and a committeo
composed of James Hart, J. P.
Hughes and E. Van Tobel called on
United States District Attorney
Frye, this morning and lodged com
plaint against the methods pursued
by the inspectors.
Frye informed the committee
that he was powerless to act with
out Instructions from Washington,
and he advised the committee that
it should take the matter up direct
ly with the government authorities,
and if he received orders to take
any active part in the inquiry, he
would then do so.
The committee then wired Super
vising Inspector Bermlngham at
Washington, requesting that ho au
thorize some local attorney or atj
tornies to attend the sessions of the
Jnvestlgatlon and cross-examine
each witness, In case he is not mado
