"Quick Action of Crew in Clos
ing Bulkhead Prevents
Loss of Life
New York, Oct. 7.—Quick action
on the part of the crew in closing
the water tight "collision bulkhead"
of the steamer Lexington last night
prevented a possible loss of life
"when the craft was rammed by the
United States submarine 0-7 in the
treacherous waters of the Hell Gate'
channel in the upper East River.
'The Lexington, a colonial line
steamer, was bound for Providence
'with 300 passengers, when, accord
ling to passengers, the submarine,
'which had been maneuvering on the
surface, suddenly headed across her
jbow. There was a crash, the steamer
'quivered, and there was a sensation
jot "sliding backward. Many of the
passengers were thrown off their
I feet. Women screamed and men
j cried for help.
Tears Big Hole 111 Ship
There was a general rush for the
!]ife preservers as the submarine
:backed away from the Colonial iiner.
'The crews were standing by the life-
Iboats, but Captain Gray and the of
jficers aboard after a quick inspection
jof the bow, In which a jagged semi
(circular hole of fifteen-foot radius
,'had been torn, said that three of
i her plates above the water line had
(been stove in.
Order was quickly restored when
lit was learned that the ship was
I in no danger, the pumps were set to
'work, and what little water had been
ishipped was soon being pumped out.
On board the submarine there
-were about thirty men under com
mand of Lieutenant Commander
Junken. Ensign James Boyce was
the only man injured. His arm was
-crushed so badly that it was neces
sary to take him to the hospital on
Blackwcll's sland.
The submarine was uninjured, and
I was taken to the Navy yard by a
: Navy tug.

Precipitating Crisis
Similar to Fiume
Paris, Oct. 7.—General Ali Riza
Pasha, the new Turkish grand
vizier, has opened negotiations with
Mustapha Kemai, the Turkish Na
tionalist leader, whose troops re
cently tnok possession of the
strategic city of Konien, according
to a dispatch from the special corre
spondent of I/lnformation at Con
Turkish Nationalist troops now
number upward of 300,000 men and
commanded by Mustapha Kemal
seem to have precipitated In Asia
Minor, on a major scale, a crisis
similar to that which arose in Dal
matia when Captain Gabriele D'An
nunzio seized the city of Fiume.
There is a feeling that the situa
tion in Asia Minor lias gone beyond
the control of the Turkish govern
ment and that the Allied powers are
helpless, at present, to do anything
to bring military pressure to bear
nnd afford any appreciable relief.
There are some who question
whether the powers are sufficiently
united, or inclined to intervene.
Young men and women in charge of
a seres of entertainments for Sacred
Heart Church, South Cameron street,
have a big program ahead. On Thurs
day night a eucher and five hundred
party will be featured. The Commit
tee in charge is preparing to make
this a pleasant evening. Many out
of town friends will be on hand, and
a large attendance is looked for.
