Y ov LXVI X° 21.925. DR. CRAPSEY RESIGNS. ASKS QIICK DEPOSITION. Jfill Submit Case to Enlightened Conscience of World. I By 7>!e«T».ph to Ttir Tnbun*. ] Rochester, Nov. 20.— Rev. Dr. Algernon 8. Crapscy. of St. Andrew's Church, who ■was con victed of heresy because of the views he ex pressed concerning the birth of Christ, lias re signed his ministry In the Protestant Episcopal Church. In a letter dated from his rectory to morrow, which has been made public here, he asks the Right Rev. .William David Walker. Bishop of Western New York, to take formal fteps under the general canons of the Church to depose him from the priesthood. . While he expresses great regret at leaving the Church of his lifelong service. Dr. Crapsey does not in the least recant those views which led to his conviction. Rather, he argues that it was Hi true belief In the highest teachings of th« Scripture* -which' brought about the utterances which the ecclesiastical court found heretical. Throughout his letter there is expressed a spirit of earnest, sincere sorrow at being com pelled •<-. sever his Church ties. He tells Bishop •Talker that even if he is not of the Church offi cially, he -ail take the best of it with him. and •will joy in its ;ovß. and weep with it in its sor rows. Th* one note of censure for his judges he Mr , rP «rs In an admonition to "his Church broth ers who believe as he doe?. 1 am about to carry our case to the high court of the free intelligence and the ■ enlight ened conscience of the world." he writes, "and If I win it there, I will win it for every church ■sd every ? oul in Christendom. Let my breth ren within the Church abide the issue of this trial. For, when the great tribunal of free thought has decided this contention, the men ■ma sidmihlster the Church on earth will con form to this decision. It is to this work of show- Ing that 6©6! ir in man and man Is in God that I conf-errat* the rest of my life." DP CRAPSET*fI PLANS. . , Dr. Crapsey said tonight that he had not de cided -what his future would be He is averse to 'discussing It until it becomes more definitely "I expert to remain Here.*' Dr. Crapsey said, 'and. although I shall be deposed from the priesthood of my church. I shall not cease to minister to such of the people of this city as may need and desire my services. I shall not. of coarse administer th* sacraments, but that Is '■.he more mechanical work of the priesthood." •It -is -possible. Dr. Crapaey pays, that he may *p*ak from some public platform, and. it might be. -finally organize an independent work In harmony Tith the message, that he will preach. He" has 'received .half a dozen proposals to go SB the lecture platform. He expects to make a decision in the matter in a few days. ■ - "My purpose in lecturing, however." he said, "would not be to make money. That work sxsuM be undertaken In the belief that I have a m*£sa.ge to give, and it would be that mes f&ge, not what the people might chance to de sire, that I should deliver." Dr. Crapsey checked himself in speaking of the york at *WL "Andrew's that was "being; ruln»d" by the action of the ecclesiastical-au thorities. "It shall not be ruined, however," he paid. "I Rhall see that it is not ruined." DR. '.CRAPSET'S LETTER. | The letter to Bishop Walker is as follows): Ft. Andrew'? Rectory. Rochester. Nov. 36, 190*.

If 1 am to hold the 'reed at all I rv;sr civ* to certain, if not all. of Its articles a spiritual rather than a literally physical inter relation. Wh*n I say of Jesus that He. ascended nto heaven I do not iMsn and cannot mean that With His physical body of flesh, blood and bon«s H* floated into space and has for two thou- Eawl years b**n existing, somewhere in the sky, in that very physical body of fl«*Bh. blood and V>nes. Such an existence would seem to in* not Clr-nous but horrible, and *:<■>! a conception is to me r.ot only inbellevable. it is unthinkable. What I do mean by this phrase is that Jesus, having ■o pllsbed Hi* work in the flesh, ascended into the higher Ufa of the s;.!rif. Also when I say of J*s'js that He wan conceived by th* Holy Ghost, born of til*. Virgin Mary. I do not mean "that tlin great and living God In order to pet into His WOrW ri*d to violate Hi- wonderful law of human r»r;<- rat ion. break Into th» sanctities of marriage an«i cause ■ Son of man to be born without a hu- fath*r. Such .1 notion is most repugnant to m of a wise and holy G'xJ. I was not there fore alarmed, I was relieved, -when a careful *ti;4y of th* Holy Scriptures convinced me that this notion of the origin of Jesu* was without f""r.datlon in history. Jesus was not lessened in »T worship. He was r-i:nobl*d by this discov ery.

RUSSIAXS FIGHT HARD Mystery Surrounds Influences Work ing to Keep Them Here. Eight young radical Russian Socialists have been arrested for landing in this country il legally. They are held at Ellis Island pend ing tne action of the Departnvent of Commerce and Labor, the papers in the case having been sent to Washington by the board of special in quiry. The arrest was made last Tuesday in Hobok«n. and the eight, prisoners were held two days by the police of that city until word came from Washington to transfer them to Ellis Isl and. Here they were taken before a board of special inquiry, which decided that deportation was warranted, ?<nd so ordered. Final action is expected soon. The young men are said to be about as fine a lot of aliens as ever applied to this country for admission. One of them is a silversmith and another ia a coppersmith. Another Is a student and the rest are artisans, high In th°ir trade. Th°y a re said to belong to th^ radical socialistic party in Russia. n::'l took sides with that ele ment in the pouina. The government made it so warm for th m that fhey left in a hurry. The young men pave as-? ranging from seven teen to twenty-five years. They seemed to be anx ious to land iti this' country, -t^ l ' were much put out at falling into the bands of the police so soon. They appeared, it is s .-:id. )•> be Ignorant of the immigration laws, but one man. Who was present at their examination, said their ig horance was feigned. There seems to be considerable mystery sur rounding the affair. Wherefore the beclouding ,10, 10 m , P seems to know, or, at least, no «ne Is dis posed to tell The leading spirit in the effort to bring about fhe landing of the aliens vas Morris Hillqutt. recently the Sotiallsl candidate for Congress in the !>ti, District.

The work for the men. however, has been carried on sub rosa. and •■■very effort lias b^eii made to keep the fa.-ts from the newspapers by the Social ists interested.

It is as serted, how-ver, that if the known facts ar overcome ;'; ' will b<» a powerful Influence In deed that brings it about It was learned on the i>»--st of authority that the men were without money and that they had come here as stowaways and had been smug gled ashore at Hoboken. Any one of thes.^ fa< ta would be sufficient ground for deportation, ac cording to the immigration lai s Commissioner Watchorn mid la^t night that ihe men had been arrested in Hoboken. Just where in Hoboken he < i i < 1 not know. He s'lM they remained on the boat until the other pas sengers bad departed and then got away. They had no appeal, hs said, but the Department of Comm< rce and Lat»jr was considering the case. Mr Htllqult said last night that his profes sional connection with the case ceased <>n Fri day. He did ""t appear before the board of spe cial inquiry, bui advised as to the proceedings to be taken. He said the "boys" declared they were not stowaways, but hail paid for passage.

CRASH li\ THE SUBWAY. HEAR END COLLISION. Guards hock Doors on Panic Stricken Passengers. Two women were severely cut and bruised and a dozen others, men and women, slightly bruised last night when a southbound local of the Lenox avenue division of the subway road crashed into an express train at 110 th* street, where locals and expresses run on the samo tracks. The express was about to pull out when the local ran Into it. smashing the end of the last car and shattering every window hi it and the other cars. The first car of the local was also badly smashed, as were the, windows in the train. Both trains were crowded, and a panic fol lowed the crash, which was intensified when several men and women smashed windows in their haste to get out. The guards on the ex press train closed the doors, which angered the passengers, who wanted to get off. The more severe casualties follow. THE INJURED. BACH. Miss Valuta. No. 462 \mst»-lam avenue. FRIEDMAN. Mr« Pabina. No. 41 East TO street. Miss Bach was taken to the J. Hood Wright Hospital, and Mrs. Friedman, after being at tended to. was taken to her home in a carriage. Both women were in the first car of the local when the crash came. Miss Bach was being trampled on in the- excitement that followed when she pushed her hand through a window and forced her way out She was severely bruised and cut about the face and body In get ting out. Mr?. Friedman tried to get out of a window also, but was dragged back by her hus band and held until the guard opened the door. She was only slightly bruised, but was badly cut about the face and hands. How the. motorman of th* local escaped un injured nobody could tell, but it was said he was not even scratched The hood of the car was forced in by the crash, and the little window through which the motorman sees was smaaheC. to bits. The motorman's name was given as Ed ward Caldwell. The police of the 12."tth street station w*r* in formed, and Inspector Sweeney, with the re serves, rushed to the scene. Th« J. Hood Wright Hospital answered a call, and Drs. Page and Huyck attended to those who were able to go home. Although Inspector Sweeney made in quiries, he declared that he was refused Infor mation about the accident. Frank Hedley, general manager «f the Inter borough, said last night: I have made so far only a slight Investigation. The local train was running all day. and had made all ?tops at the stations previous to the crash. I will have th" motorman before me to morrow, and then will be able to learn the direct cause of the collision. According to th* meagre information that could be gathered from passengers and others at stations along that division, the local pulled into the 125 th street station hardly two minutes behind the express. It made up some time on the way to the- 116 th street station. The ex press was said to have pulled into this station hardly a minute and a half ahead of the local. Passengers were getting on and off the train at the front end. the signal to go ahead having been given by the guards in the rear, when the platform men saw the local dashing around the curve. ■ The motorman was too near to prevent a crash, even If his brakes had responded, but they did not. for some reason, and fhe crash fol lowed. When the excitement was over, there ere very few passengers left on the train. The smashed cars were detached at 96th stret. and. the two trains ordered to proceed at once to South Ferry.
