NEW YORK, Jan. 6 Hundreds of men and women packed In a Bubway train fought In a mad panic to escape, when dense smoke filled tho cars today. Seven hundred persons ore suffering from the offects of Injuries, smoke, asphyxiation or shook, thousands -were so unnerved by fright that they required medical attention, and that only one death resulted, Instead of hundreds, was duo to the heroism of the Bremen, 25 ot whom -were overcomo In rescuing the trapped passengers. 6f those who suffered, about 100 were overcome by smoke. The train was caught far below th,e iurfecoi thaatreftandftmiedJ passengers had to Bo mtea up cy means of ropes or carried out by firemen in a roundabout way. The worst transportation , accident In New York's history started at 8.02 o'clock, when a "blowout" tied up the entire system from the Upper Bronx to Brook ln. Between Hth street and 4th all "btalled" trains were shrouded In dark ness. 6ne hour and forty minutes later fire started In the block between 60th and 63th streets. Passengers declare trains were afire, but traction officials deny this. Directly under EGth street, a north bound express train and a southbound local were "stalled." Both were jammed with passengers. It was these who suf fered most. TRAPPED IN DARKNESS. Trapped In the darkness with the tunnel filling with the choking smoko from burning Insulation rubber many were rendered unconscious. Others, utterly Danlo stricken, tore loose from, the clutches of the more cool-headed who would restrain them and attempted to find their way through the dark, smoke nlled tunnel to an exit. Some fell by the way, unconscious. Others fought their companions In frenzied panle, That scores were not Hilled was, due to the speedy arrival of the firemen who tore openvmanholes and ventilator gratings, jowered ladders and brought down lights so that the victims could see. For nearly two hours Chief Kenyon and his men worked In relays, getting the passengers to safety. Hardly one who -was brought out was conscious. All of the ambulances of the city and all of the pulmotors available were rushed to the scene. The streets In the vicinity re sembled a battlefield. Unconscious forms were stretched out everywhere, while up and down the line the doctors hurried, administering first aid. Some were ablo to gl home. In the West Bide Y, M. C. A., 19 are receiving medical attention. One woman, who waa not Identified, died shortly after being taken to the Poly clinic Hospital. The situation around the 58th street station was the worst on the subway sys tem, but under Central Park, where the tunnel Is narrow and low, hundreds of women fainted and there were serious panics. There was no smoke panlo there. SYSTEM TIED UP FOR DAYS. , This afternoon it was feared that the sub way could not be put into full operation for at least a week.

Were the Knox proposal adopted in the present case the court would be composed of delegates represent ing the United States, Great Britain, France and Russia. WASHINGTON, Jan. 6. The State Department officials have good reason to "believe, though so far not dlreotly from Sir Edward Orey. that he will Invoke in the present contraband and, neutral ship controversy the famous circular to the Powers of Philander C. Knar, when Seoretary of State, on these and similar subjects. Briefly 'summarized, Secretary Knox's note proposed that the prize court at The Hague "should be invested with abritral powers" for tho settlement of all disputed cases. This note was re. garded at the time with great favor by everal of the important powers, but when the present Administration came into cower It was put aside and the Bryan peace treaties pushed to the front. Yesterday there was an Important con ference between officials of the State De partment and Dr. James Brown Scott, at one time the representative ot the Unite States at The Hague tribunal and who has, It is learned, been appointed by President Wilson special agent of the Government "In relation to controversies growing out of the European war. v It was learned that'there has been "a suggestion" which amounts to a sound ing1 of this Government to refer the ques tions of contraband and. the subordinate question of the detention of ships to an organization like that proposed by Sec retary Knox "In case there should be Concluded on Face Two PITTSBURGH INDUSTRIES FEEL PROSPERITY'S SPUR Many Orders for Steel Cars and large One for Baila Deceived, PITTSBURGH, Jan. .-An optlmistlo chord Has been struck In Industrial cir cles of the PltUburgh district within the last few days In the form of substantial prders dtitrlbuted among various plants for steel and wire plant.

Dr. S. Lewis Ziegler, of 162S Wal nut street, was appointed to succeed Doctor Harte aB Director of the De partment of Public Health and Char ities by Mavor Blankenburrr this jUftf scmp and was jworn jrt at 3:30 1 orclock'in UieTMayor's office. Tie was1 for five years medical director of Wilis eye riospitai. The Mayor 'also requested tho resig nation of Assistant Director Wilson, which was forthcoming immediately. Dr. Richard H. Harte, Director of Public Health and Charities, resigned hid post today at the request of Mayor Blankenburg. Doctor Harte said Mayor Blankenburg told him he would also aBk for thc leslgnatlon of Assistant Director Alexander M. Wilson. Friction first apparent last June over tho question of giving, Architect Philip IX. Johnson tho contract for tho recon struction of the Philadelphia Hospital, with a B por cent, feo that would amount to nbout 300,000, brought about the resig nation. Assistant Director Wilson was unal terably opposed, with the Blankenburg Administration, to Johnson. Director Harte favored Johnson, his friends say, more because ho wanted things accom plished without any further hitch 'than for any personal reasons. In favoring Johnson It was the feeling among Administration adherents that Di rector Harte leaned to Councils fort all tho aid he could get from them. This looked to the Administration like a pact with the Republican organization. So long as the difference of opinion between Assistant Director Wilson and Director Harte existed matters would have been delayed. Two days ago the friction came to the point where Director Harte said the Mayor could have his resignation If he wanted It. At the same time the Director said he was not anxious to resign. He declared he had Btarted several big Improvements and that he did not think It would be fair to those who depended on him to carry them to conclusion to ireslgn of his own accord. Announcement of the resignation caused n distinct surprise In City Hall and among politicians. Harte Is the first member of the Blankenburg cabinet to resign except Dr. Joseph S. Neff, whom ho succeeded. Doctor Neff resigned be cause of Illness. Until the trouble In the Department of Publio Health nnd Charities developed the Blankenburg administration had been Angularly free from discord. There has been no trouble of any kind brought to light and few differences of opinion be tween the Mayor and his official family. Conjecture at City Hall was that an other move would be started o give the directorship to Mr. Wilson. The law pro vides that the Incumbent be a physician, which Mr. Wilson is pot At the time Doctor Neff resigned there was consider able talk of seeking an amendment to this, so that WJUon could take the pest. The resignation came a few minutes after the conclusion of one of the short est cabinet meetings on .record, "was called at 11 o'clock and, ended half an hour later. There waa more than a sug gestion of acrimony to the conversation that ended with the Director's resigns, t on Near the, close of the formal meet ing the Mayer asked If any of the di rectors had anything to say. "I have something to say," announced Director Harte. "Let that go until later." said the Mayor. Directors Harte and Cooke got Into a discussion of the Johnson matter, whlU the other directors were filing out of the Mayor's office. When all the rest were gone Director Harte, addressing the Mayor, said: "It Is impossible for me to work with Asjlstant Director Wilson." '"JCou haven't attempted to work with blra. have you!" asked the Mayer, "or to hava Dim work With your Yes X hve, replied the Director, "but I found it useless to attempt to do o J found I oould handle affairs in roy department better alone. I don't want to take advise from a man whose Judgment Is not good " "Well, under thota ehrottmatancaa." aeld Striking Sundayisms From Today's Sermon If the church Is not doing tho work of God, who 1st The sa loons arc hot. Thc politicians arc not. The clubs arc not. If the church Isn't doing it, show me, I'll quit It. You may not believe In God, but there isn't any old Infidel who can run Ills own farm without follow ing thc Blulnc order. Thc time spent In gelling an ed ucation Isn't icastcd. Time I spent rating and sleeping isn't wastid. It's horse sense to do thevt things. Let's have horse sense in thc church. Some churches have clocks screwed on f7ic pulpits, and I believe thc devil has his hand In that. If the mfnfsfcr happens to go five min utes overtime, whetvt No doubt the disciples had Just as pressing business as thc men of Philadelphia today. They had no time for ice water at their meetings. The average church pays more at tention to the kitchen than to thc Holy Bplrlt. Borne people think they can't run a church tolthont oyster soup. I believe In oyster soup, but I do not believe in coaxing quarters ottt of men's pockets to pay thc ptcachcr. I can experiment with religion as I can tolth water. Experience will do jnorc than forly'mllllon theories. There can be no wedding unless two parties are agreed. If the girl says "No" that ends it. Von't think you're with God because your name is on a church record, Lots of you women haven't re ligion enough to go home and burn that pack of cards, take the beer out of the lee box, or take thc dish you won at the card party, you black legged gamblers, and bust it.
