Indictments for responsibility for the
Eastland disaster of last Saturday
will be returned by the state grand
Jury, according to an announcement
by State's Attorney Hoyne. It will
not be decided until a later time
whether to ask indictments on
charges of criminal carelessness or
"There Is plenty of evidence for
either charge," Mr. Hoyne said.
The coroner's inquest, it is ex
pected, will be completed later, and
immediately thereafter the state
grand Jury will go into session.
Explaining the taking into custody
of W. K. Greenebaum, general man
ager of the Indiana Transportation
company, which leased the Eastland
last Saturday, Mr. Hoyne said:
"Mr. Greenebaum, in response to
questions at the inquest, admitted
that he knew nothing about the East
land, but added that he knew, or had
heard, that It was not seaworthy."
Other agencies investigating the dis
aster are continuing their work. Sec
retary William C. Redfield of the De
partment of Commerce, who Is here on
instructions from President Wilson said
he had not decided whether his In
quiry will extend to all of the lake
passenger traffic or whether it will be
corrflned to the Eastland. "For the
time being we will confine ourselves to
the case in hand," he said.
Day of Public Mourning;.
In response to a proclamation by Mayor
Thompson, Chicago observnd today as
day for public- mourning. The'-cltyf
hall la closed and the burial of almost
TOO of the excursionist recovered from
the river took place.
Facilities are lacking properly to han
dle the funerals and services over as
many as thirty bodies were held simul
taneously in a church. Because there !
are not enough steam and electric fun-i
eral trains and hearses the dead were i
removed to cemeteries in various sorts
of conveyances. In many cases motor
trucks which carried several coffins
were used. In the vicinity of the West
ern Electric plant, where most of the
victims were employed, the funeral pro
cessions blocked traffic.
Thirty of the dead were buried from
the church of St. Mary of Czestochwa. At
Mary Queen of Heaven church, services
