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,

the trapped passengers.

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 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.
This afternoon it was feared that the sub
way could not be put into full operation for
at least a week. Trains ore running rfom
Van Cortland Park to Broadway and 13Tth
street o the Broadway Una and from
Bronx Park to 143th on the Lenox avenue
branch, but no one waa prepared to fay
when, through service could be resumed.

work at 65th street, told a graphlo story
of what' took place underground,
"It was a chamber of horrors down

Over Hospital Contract.
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

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
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
