pie of Chicago and Cook county to
day in the habeas corpus proceedings
started by Solicitor Thurman.
On top of brags and defys from the
men under Sec'y Redfield the past
week there came today from Solic
itor Thurman legaL. action which
turns loose the accused inspectors.
Federal Judge Landis ,of course, is
compelled to grant the habeas corpus
hearing. But the action of Redfield's
man, Thurman-, today recalls the
prophecy of Victor Olander, secre
tary of the lake seamen's union:
"The federal inspectors are com
ing from Washington to Chicago to
investigate themselves. It is their
own bureau which is accused. And
you can depend on them to make
every effort to defend themselves."
Sec'y of Commerce Wm. C. Red
field, Solicitor A. L. Thurman and
Gen. Geo. Uhler of the steamboat in
spection service this afternoon went
before the state grand jury investi
gating the Eastland disaster. ,
Redfield was subpoenaed after
State's Att'y Hoyne had talked to the
Redfield win attempt to explain the
duties of the inspection service and
show that his inspectors, Reid and
Eckliff, who were handcuffed when
they appeared before the inquiry
board yesterday, were not to blame.
"Wul the secretary whitewash the
inspectors?" was the direct question
asked Ass't State's Att'y Sullivan.
"I don't expect he'll come here to
indict them," was the reply. "State's
Att'y Hoyne will have men there to
see there is no whitewash."
At the morning session of the jury
Martin Flatow, excursion agent of the
St Joe Steamship Co., and Moses
Greenebaum, brother of the manager
of the Indiana Transportation Co.,
which leased the Eastland, appeared.
Greenebaum is the man alleged to
have taken charge of the tickets col
lected on the Eastland.
