The troop train of twelve steel tars
carrying (00 soldiers waa bound west
ward, running slowly, when the crash
happened. " Every light died and the
darkness overwhelmed the Injured and
startled men. Military discipline operated
almost Instantly. "
Modern Cars Save Lives.
That there waa not an appalling loss
of life when several cars of the long
train- were 'snapped from the track and
thrown down a twenty foot embankment
Is due undoubtedly to the fact that the
oars were modern alt steel and fitted
with cane seats and metal rods; the
best type ot subway ear with which
New Yorkers are familiar.
The three men who were killed lost
their lives In a peculiar way. They
were sitting on the left side of the
seventh car. As It was Jerked from the
track It turned upside down swiftly.
The three men simply were hurled head
first against the cement floor. Their
heads wore crushed and they suffered
Internal injuries which otherwise would
have been fatal. Most of those In
jured seriously got their hurts In pre
cisely the same way from being thrown
Violently against the floor or metal
ides of the cars and by cuts from
flupt. Savage of the Long Island Rail
road. In talking last evening about the
wreck, dwelt especially on the splendid
behavior of the soldiers. Mr. Savage
couldn't aay enough to express his ad
miration. "The behavior of those (boys was
superb," he said.
What the superintendent had particu
larly in mind woe the fact that fifty
men In every car were suddenly- wedged
, against one side of the car. Jammed
against each other with stunning vio
lence and held for minutes In awkward
and painful attitudes. Had there been
frantic struggling and headless efforts
to get free of the jam many more would
have been hurt and some doubtless
would have been added to the list of
The officials refused formally to admit
that the rails had been tampered with
by enemy hands, but they did point out
that the particular stretch of track on
which the accident occurred Is regarded
aa one of tho best on the main line.
Wear a German Settlement.
Arraying these facta, the officials find
it difficult to believe that the accident
waa a mere happen go. It Is known that
track walkers lately have found an un
usual number of spikes missing from ties.
Bplkes drop out now and then, but not
In the numbers reported by the track
walkers. If a German desired to wreck
a train he could scarcely select a better
method. It was noted that the wreck
occurred very near a German community
. Oermnntown It Is locally called. And
all over that part of Long Island the
rumor had been flying about that troop
trains were to be moved on Sunday
night. The whole affair necessitates
Investigation, and detectives from sev
eral Federal and other agencies were on
the Job yesterday.
The locomotive and the first four cars
ef the twelve-car train passed over the
broken rail (or whatever defect It may
have been) In safety. One of the wheels

S .1st Resolutions'.
One thousand cheering members of
the New York Athletic Club crowded
into the gymnasium at the clubhouse
on Central I-urk South last night and
unanimously adopted a resolution giving
authority to the board ot governors to
take summary action in the case of
any member who shows by word or
deed that he Is an alien enemy or arm
puth'iser with sry nation at war with
tho United States. It was further pro
vided that copies of the papers upon
which any expulsion la based be for
warded to the United States District
Attorney In Netv York and to the De
partment of Justice at Washington.
Four club members already have been
eepelled for their German sympathies.
The cases of a number of others ari
now being Investigated. No report wai
made on them Inst night, but It was
stated that the board of governors ex
pected to hear from the committee hav
ing the matter In charge at any time
and that such action aar the facts wa
ranted would Immediately be taken.
Major Graeme M. Hammond, the club
president, was In the chair last night
and the resolutions were presented by
William H. Page, a former president.
They were seconded by Justice Bartow
S. Weeka of the Supreme Court and
John B. Stanchfleid. They had the In
dorsement ot Thomas Fortuno Ryan.
Any member who opposed their passage
was challenged to take the floor, but
no one arose.
"Our 5,(00 members have bought
largely of Liberty bonds, subscribed
generously to every war charity and
have stood loyally by our President In
his efforts to mobilize the assets of this
country In time to give desperately
needed aid to our Allies," said Mr.
Stanchfleid. "As a club and as in
dividuals we are behind the Govern

the very nature ot things, be summarily
expelled. There Is no room tor debate.

our Influence can be palliated or con
A letter waa read from Col. Itoose
velt, an honorary member, written from
Sagamore Hill to Clement March, stat
ing his approval of the resolutions.
"Any man who la for Germany and
her allies, or against our allies. Is a
traitor to America and should be treated
as such." Col. Roosevelt wrote.
A rising vote was taken on the reso
lutions, and It was voted that the refusal
of any member to record himself In
their favor be made the subject of im
mediate action by the board ot gov
ernors. It was set forth In the resolutions
that It waa the duty of the club to up
hold the cause of the United States and
Its ajlles and that It waa particularly
Important that no act be countenanced
on the part of any member, either di
rectly or Indirectly, which might reflect
on the flag.
The resolutions recited that this was
not only a matter of loyal sentiment but
a practical means of furthering the
cause of tho Allies and preventing occur
rences which might have a direct effect
upon the lives of members of the club
at stake In the war.
The appointment of 0!en. Foch as
Commander In Chief of
Armies also was Indorsed.

CITY PIER LESSEE'S
$30,000 OFFER MET
Hudson Pock Company liaises
Bid Accepted by Dock
The Hudson Dock and Terminal Com
pany has met the offer of the Occidental
Dock Company for 320,000 for a ten yar
lease on Tier S. North River, according
to William M. Wemple of the law firm
of Crlm & Wemple, which has been re
tained as the company's counsel. The
flrst his client knew of the offer of the
present lessee, be declared, waa when
the storm broko at the meeting of the
Sinking Fund Commission on. Thursday.
At once, to show their good faith, his
client company Increased their offer
from $25,000 to $30,000, In spite ot the
fact that the commission had already
approved a lease at a lower figure.
Dock Commissioner Hulbert declared
yesterday that he did not care to go Into
the details of the transaction prior to
the presentation of his affidavit to the
court In the injunction proceeding that
has been brought to prevent his enter
ing Into the Tease with the Hudson com
pany. 'You ask whom I meant when on
leaving the Major's office on Saturday,
I declared they can't make a goat of
me.' " said the Commissioner. I meant
the Occident Dock Company, of course."
It Is understood the Commissioner
will Indicate that the Occident com
pany had-delayed making a definite of
fer, hoping to get a renewal of the
lease at a low figure, until his patience
was exhausted. ,
Will Reply In Coart. ,
"Will you make any reply now to the
affidavit f! James Arkell, president of
the Occident company, that he was un
able to nee you from April 1 to April
10, and that In the meantime you recom
mended to the Sinking Fund Commission
tho approval of the offer of the Hudson
company?" the Commissioner was asked.
No, I intend to present my reply In
affidavit form to the court, and It will
be a complete answer to even one of
all allegations, and satisfactory to every
body." On the representation of the Corpora
tion Counsel's office that they had not
had time to present their case, Crlm
and Wemple havo consented -to an ad
journment of the return of the order
to show cause until Friday morning. It
will come up then before Justice Green-
Mr. Wemple on behalf of his clients
declared there waa no politics in their
effort to get a lease of Pier . It was
simply a business proposition. They
will make a plain statement of the facts
to the court, he said, and they expected
that It would show the present lessees
had no cause to complain.
Tells Ilalbert'a Letters.
Mr. Wemple said that the only person
Interested In the Hudson company In
addition to Frank McGoey ot Far Hock
away was J. P. McAllister ot (McAllister
Bros. They do all tho lighterage work
for the United States Steel Corporation.
About a year ago these two 'men go: a
chance to acquire some ships. They
needed a pier and on March 13 wrote
to Commissioner Hulbert offering 125,000
fer a ten year lease on Plor 9, which
they had learned would be on the mar
ket. Two days later they received an
ackiioa-Iedgement In which the Com
missioner said ho would take tho offer
under consideration. They heard nothing
more until April 6 or 7, when they re
ceived a letter raying the Commissioner
had recommended tho acceptance of their
offer to the Sinking Fund Commlsaon.
Application had been made by tho
Hudson company to the Government for
some ships, Mr. Wemple said, and they
hoped they would get them. In the
meantime. If they should get the lease,
they could use the pier for the business
of the McAllister Lighterage Company,
and berths could be rented to outside
It Is probable that as a result of the
storm over this lease some attempt will
'be made to have all piers put up at
auction for the highest bidder In the
