Note. The Western Electric's
check on the missing, while it may be
thorough for the employes of the
company, does not include the great
number who went on the excursion
'who were not employed by the company.
If there is to-be an immediate In
vestigation of the sinking of the
Eastland, with the fixing of blame for
the disaster, it must come from some
other source than 'the federal gov
ernment. William C Redfield, secretary of
the federal dep't of commerce and
labor, made this plain when he ar
rived in Chicago this morning to take
charge of the federal investigation.
