NEW GRAND JURY PROBE TO BE
MADE IN EASTLAND CASE
A new grand jury investigation has
been ordered 'by Dis't Att'y Clyne on
the Eastland disaster. The same
grand jury which returned the indict
ment will make the investigation.
They will inquire as to how some
freshly-broken concrete and some
newly-sawed piles have appeared on
the bed of the riher.
Diver Halvorsen is positive that the
piles and concrete were not on the
river bed when he made his last in
spection a few weeks ago.
Yesterday Edwin P. Sweet, ass't
sec'y of commerce, gave out a state
ment in St Paul, Minn., that piling
on the bottom of the river had caused
the disaster. Immediately following
this peculiar statement came the an
nouncement of Sec'y of Commerce
Redfield that he had ordered a new
survey of the river bed.
Halvorsen says somebody has
dumped freshly broken sidewalk con
crete and placed some piles on the
bottom of the river since the catas

tried his hardest and failed to white
wash the officials of the boat com
pany and his own assistants from
blame for the disaster.
Sinister significance is placed on
the fact that this "bomb" was fired
on the eve of the grand jury indict
ments which were returned yesterday
after being held up for two weeks in
