The legislative committee has directed the attorney general to investigate charges that Heinrich von Eckhardt, the German minister to Mexico, has been responsible for al- j leged corruption in the chamber of deputies. These charges were published by El Universal, a pro entente and pro American newspaper, with a demand that von Eckhardt receive his passports as minister, it is asserted by opponents of Cl Universal that even if the charge of corruption in the chamber should be proved against one or more deputies, the paper is liable to prosecution under Mexican law by every member of the chamber. wrecking of the train lasted for eight hours. His losses were not known, as ho withdrew to the mountains, going north. Going to Clear Wreck. The work train left Chihuahua City early Saturday morning. It consisted of eight box cars, a wrecking crane, and three coal cars and the locomotive. The train was going to the point between Corralitos and Rallano to clear up the wreckage from the train which was held up, robbed and burned there, January 23. The train was passing Dias at full speed when the explosion occurrod under the engine. The Villa followers had deployed and were hidden behind rocks on both sides of the railroad track. The guards were caught between two fires and all who did not surrender were killed. The others were later j executed. Many of the workmen were j killed and their bodies thrown into I the burning cars. Others w*ere exe- • cuted. Five escaped by feigning | death.

He confirmed the i report that all of the men, women and children passengers were stripped of their clothing. Engine Crew Escape». The Mexican boy also said the engine crew of the train wrecked at itellano succeeded in escaping to Chihuahua City. The Villa followers uncoupled the engine, whHe they went tiirough the train holding up the passengers and looking for government officials. While the passengers were being robbed he said the engineer started the locomotive and ran it away from the scene of the holdup.
