CHURCHGOERS Di PANIC MAN FIRES AT POIJCEMA Wound* Old Enemy, and Then "Shoots Up" Eighth Avenue. "Tom" Oasasfi known Is the pollco as a mem h+v of the ' lUisor lti'«' v bunch," whose mem ber, haunt the dark corners of Hell's Kitchen, threw the ronffrejratlon of the Gorman Catholic Church of St. John Ihe Baptist Into a panic yes terday morning when ha rushed Into the crowd with a smoking revolver In his hand. The con gregation was gathered around the church doors when Cooney appeared, and there was a wild race f<w cover. He did net tarry long at the •ditice, but dashed up Eighth avenue, with a po liceman in pursuit, at whom he biased away for a half dozen blocks. Finally, the magazine of his revolver became exhausted, and then he halted and fought with the policeman, who ar rvsted him only after Cooney had been soundly clubbed. Cdohey says he is a laborer and that he lives at Mo. HOi West S7th street, but the po lice say he never works, and that his place of residence frequently changes. William Coyne, «if No. 435 West Hith street, ami Cooney had an unpleasant session some time ago. and sines then they have not been the liest of friends. Yesterday they renewed old ao quaintancefl at the Tiger, In U7th street, near Seventh avenue. They had a few drinks and then adjourned to the sidewalk. ; Cooney suddenly remembered his old grudge, and, pulling out a revolver, proceeded to pump cold lead into his erstwhile friend. Coyne went down before the first shot with a bullet in his l^pr. The man with the. gun then decided to keep a previous engagement over in Eighth ave nue, and started out on a run. Patrolman O'Dea. on post in Eighth avenue, between 29th and 30th streets, heard the shots find ran down the avenue. Cooney soon got tired running and boarded a northbound Eighth avenue car. With the pur still In his hand he. rushed through the car and viewed the scenery from the front platform beside the motorman. ■whoni he convinced that the car was not going fp.h.i enough by firing m shot over his head. The 1-r heels revolved at a furious rate— in fact, so fast that they failed to grip the slippery rails. fnJ O'Dca gained on the fugitive. Cooney grew r.\-tle«s at the delay, and when ODea drew near Ik Bred at him. The bullet went wide. ■ Cooties jumped off the car and ran right into the members of iii- congregation who were as p'mfo'ed around the churrh. H<» turned and fired two tom f!io:s at O'Dea. who then drew his gin. -,;. . women and children rushed into the chur<h and into every place of safety. Cconey c-'iiiinu^d his race up Eighth avenue. As soon *.p he became separated from the churchgoers ODea took two shots at Cooney. but his aim ■ Frank Flannagan, of No. V,V2 West _'7th rtr- and John CosteUo. of No. 212 West 32d street .ittrmpted to, head off Cooney. He v.arned Ch^m away and swept his rum around *■• (bat he covered both of them. They dropped imo the nearest, Aasemcnt entrance. ODea was tb^n <!<^sp on his heels, and Cooney fired his last shot. He had ■■■ handful of cartridges, but ■while he attempted to throw out th« empty t-l.p'iis. O'llusa. *iJos-~4 in sr.\ him a-n<3- hwootooql him drtwn \.fiii Hi* butt of Ins revolver. Cooney was "ii his feet in an instant. Policeman and fugitive fought desperately, but finally 'Cooney '•cut down to the sMewnlli with all the fight i3k°n out of liini. A horse attached to a baker's ■wagon became frightened by the shots and «la*li<=-<! up th* street until it reached Sixth ave jim.= . tyh«*r« the animal was stopped. The reserve* of the West 37th street station iv<tp •-•(!<■<) "i.i and hurried to the church. It v.-«s ;iigui some one must have been hit by T'u* tlyiiiK bullets. An investigation showed that pone ... the churchgoers was injured. O'Dea'e wrist «a« badly cut ii: the right. Several !>Jain clothes men looked after Cooney until a patrol wagon arrived. Thin he was taken to Roosevelt Hospital, -where the surgeons did considerable work with the needle on his ■fur-a and scalp. Tn another part of th* accident ward was his old friend Coyne, who had ar lived ■ short time before In an ambulance. The pursr-ons removed the. bullet from his leg, but li^'win have to remain In the hospital for sev eral days. "!»ou at what the r-ops done to me." said Cooney later at the West 37th street station. *If I get twenty years I'll come out and get Fquare. I'll trim that guy. 1 suppose I'll go «p with Jiiruuie Mooney." Mooney is "doing" twenty years In Ring S!ng for murder.

GAS PUPILS OVERCOME. SEVEN DROP AT PIPE. Exhibition at Consolidated School Almost Ends in Tragedy. Efforts of the Consolidated Cac Company to Instruct young employes in the various branches of its repair departments met with a severe Jolt on Saturday night when blx young men were overcome by gas. a seventh was slightly burned and his clothes destroyed, and the school of in struction, at No. TK)4 East 21st street, was dam aged by fire to the extent of over f 1«X). The worst part of the injury to the young men was that they were overcome one after the other through order 6 from the Instructors, it in said, to finish the 'work that the man Rhead, who had been overcome, had attempted. One of them was so near death that the efforts of two physicians to revive him failed, and an ambu lance surgeon from the BeUevue Hospital had to be called in. The company hegan its school of Instruction only three weeks ago. It remodelled a factory building for the school. An auditorium, some what similar to a hospital's operating room, was constructed, with a platform in the centre. The seating capacity Is one thousand. Recently the company has obtained nearly one thousand young men, mostly from the West. a largre part of them from the American Meter Company, of Chicago, who are working 1 ns ap prenticea in the various brandies, and will ulti mately replace employes of years' standing. In the school every gas contrivance, from a stove to an engine, is used, and demonstration e all day long are given, illustrating every con ceivable repair and piece of work that the com pany needs. About 10 o'clock Saturday night the students learning to become fitters were, called to the platform. At the time several directors of various gas companies were spectators, it is said, and General Managers Brady and Turner and General .superintendent Harrington were also jpresent. .* The work of the fitters was to cut a 3-lnch service pipe, in which there was gas under high t -^s=ure and to repair the cut. The. first stu dent ailed was Frank Robertson, of Chicago, working in Shop Xo. rt. With a steel saw he. bepan to cut the piP A - As soon as he made an incision the high pressure eras began to escape freely. AJthough instructors were standing on either side of him. Robertson was quickly over come. He was carried to sn adjoining room, where two physicians revived him in half an hour. The second on the roll was then called; in the mean time the pas escaped at a great rate. Philip Tracey was the second. He continued to cut the pipe, and hud it nearly sawed through when V"* also collapsed He was revived Id about twenty minutes. By this time th« students began to get ner vous, but the Instructors. It Is said, persisted, and called William Corbett. He had nearly completed the work when he. too, collapsed. It took forty-five minutes to revive him. A general uprising followed the collapse of the third student, but the instructors were firm. "Any one who leaves this room and does not answer 10 the rollcall will be dismissed from the company's employ!" it i? paid an instructor shouted. G<?orsr<s Patterson, of shop No. 3. was the fourth young man put " the job. At flr?t he refused, but v-«» was threatened with dismissal, and finally went to work. A new pipe was placed on the platform, again charged with high pressure gas. He had worked only a short time when he became unconscious. John Mer ritt. of shop No. 1, was the fifth victim. He collapsed In about three minutes. The sixth was William Mofert Mofert Is a large, well built young man, and the instructors thought he would finish the Work. He did bo, but just as he completed his work he fell face downward on the pipe, with his face over the place where the gas was escaping. After an hour's hard work by the physicians he was still uncon scious, and nn ambulance surgeon had to work hard to save him. He was taken home in a carriage. By this time the students were in plain mutiny and a number got up and left. Superintendents and Instructors shouted that they were "fired," but they left the huildlng Just the panic. The Instructors gay.- up the demonstrations for fi 1 - ters ut this point and called for the apprentices, who are le.-irniiikj the so-called frozen service. A ripe frozen artificially was placed on th« plat form, and Instruction was given how to thaw it. To do so. alcohol is used, poured '>n the l'ipo am 2 then ignited. William Holley, a fifteen-year-old hoy, \\,m called as the first pupil. Holley was < xceedingly nervous aftf-r seeing six of bis comrades become unconscious. He lighted a match, Lju! Instead of lighting the alcohol for the pipe, threw the lighted match Into n can of alcohol. Immedi ately there was an explosion. The students and officials were in a panic. They rushed for the doors. Y.nniK Holley'B clothes caught tire in-^i dozen places, but Arthur Berwood, who wa? sit ling; In a froni seat, an i: -1 tor <.f high bills, jumped to the platform :mJ, wrapping his over coat about Holley, put out the flames. Holley's clothes were destroyed and li" iecei\ed painful burns. The boys stampeded after this. Ten men, who were it, mm emergency room for ju.-t su< h occa ,slo is, ran in. and with pails of water and sand extinguished the fUnnt-.s. after over $100 damage h.-ui been done. THIRTY HURT IX WRECK.

Dec. 30.— At a meeting of Pembroke Chapel to-night a written communication from the Rev. Dr. Charles I*. Akrd. the pastor, was read, to the effect that, after long and anxious consideration, he had decided to accept the call to the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church of New York. and he therefore placed his resignation In their hands. Dr. Aked said he did this with more real regret than he was able to describe. They had lived and worked together, he said, for more than sixteen years, and ties so tender and sacred were not to he broken except under compulsion or proved necessity. That necessity, he added, existed, and had been growing clearer and clearer to him for a considerable time. Since his illness the, work at Pembroke Chapel. Dr. Aked said, had been too heavy for him, and the conditions surrounding the Chapel, situated as It was In the heart of the city, with the attendant noise of traffic, were all against him. He was pati.slied that he could do better work for God and for man than he had yet done, and that a larger and fuller service was open to him In a different climate and amid more favorable surroundings. Except for the breakdown in bis health four years ago. Dr. Aked said that he tii.. nl J ivot. K<Av»-<:3r'»niy>— ?l r-t ifttTrirtEP JAy^t\>'J\A^ — The Fifth Avenue.

These fears, he paid, were grounded upon a total misapprehen sion of the nature of the church a.no" of the character of its Individual membership, find when they should come to know the facts as to the situation there, they would not regret In tlT»ir mind? that he had elected to make his home with these people. Dr. Aked .-viK that he would not leave Liver pool before next March. The Associated Press here learns that in the last week Dr. Aked received several cable mes sages from prominent members of the Fifth Avenue Church in New York, urging his ac ceptance of the call. John D. Rockefeller, it Is said, sent a telegram to Dr. Aked, assuring him a "free hand" In his work, and the Rev. Dr. Hugh Black, former minister of st. George's Free Church. Kdinbunrh, who "is now in New York, sent word that America needed him even more than England. LIXERS CRASH IN BAY. Columbia and Camaguey in Collision Caused by Heavy Fog. While feeling her way down the bay 1n a o>nse fog yesterday morning, <>n her way to Glasgow, 0i» steamer Columbia, of the Anchor I-ine, crashed in;<» the Inbound Ward liner Camaguey, buckling the !attor'«< bow, badly damaging her nwn port hulwark doors, and smashing two of hoy lifeboats forward. Apparently, no one was to blame for th^ col lision. Each boat hod a pllo' aboard, and it wan said tiuii because of the fog and the congested condition of tho lower buy the accident was tm avoldable. A fleei of fifteen boats were it. and about Quarantine when. the Columbia and Camaguey met. The fog was 80 dense a pilot could barely see a ship's length ahead, and a veritable bed lam of confusing whistle blasts was raging- at the time. The CaTnajpiey, loaded heavily with p. cargo of cedar and lance wood, came up off Robblns Reef at oa. m. She reduced speed, and, like the Columbia, was cautiously picking her way through the fop. When about ir,<> yards north of^he reef the pilot of the Camaguey saw the Columbia bear- Ing down upon him off his port bow. Both steamers veered to starboard, but the distance between them wn.s too short to avoid collision. With a bang thai was heard half a mile away the Camaguey's bow struck the Columbia on h<-r bulwark doors, just aft of the foremast, on th port side. The Impact snapped on* the two doors of th.- Columbia, tore away pan of her rail, smashed two lifeboats, and scraped the rivets and steel plates well aft n ■•:■■:; the port side. The Ca •>,:!£■.,<• - bow was buckled from a point about twelve feel low the deck In • to the >.<.• i.

Trouble in Pittsburg Worst than Usual — Freight Increase Big. ; r:% Telegraph to Th<- Tribune.] Pittsburgh Dec. 30.— -One of the most serious car shortages in history is now handicapping the manufacturers and other shippers of the Pittsburg district According to W. H. Williams. traffic manager of the Merchants and Manufact urers' Association, the shortage is a natural one, and is merely caused by the enormous in crease in tonnage of the Pittsburg district. Mr. Williams estimates that this year the total freight will amount to 12fMMMMNM) tons, which will be almost 40 per cent greater than in any previous year. The fact that Congress has ordered airbrakes on all freight cars has greatly retarded the building of new cars, and the man ufacturers have been unable to deliver them to the railroads.

XothinK since the Ford Theatre disaster, which occurred about fifteen years ago. when a largo number of government clerks were killed by the collapse of a portion of the building, has pro duced sack a shock as the disaster to-night. No railroad accident within a great many years'. In the District of Columbia, has approached It in ; n . „• i mi*-- ACCIDENT IN DENSE FOG. A dcnsi fog and a drizzling rain prevailed throughout the day and to-night, and the acci dent is attribute to the Inability of the engineer Of the tear '•■!'> to see the signal, showing that another train was in the block. The grade at toe ptac« where the tragedy occurred Is down ward and the tracks were slippery. The Frederick train, which is run on Sundays only, is largely for. the* accommodation of those who have gone to the suburbs on Sunday and for the benefit of churchgoers who desire to at tend services In Washington at night. Pre sumably a number of the latter v ere on the train. It leaven Frederick at 4:05 In the after noon, and Is scheduled to reach Terra Cotta about 6:13 o'clock. The train was about on time to-night when the crash came. At first, owing to the impenetrable fog it was impossible to determine the extent of th« dis aster, and early rumors placed the number of killed at higher figures than those which proved later to be accurate. When the news reached PEICE THREE CENTS. Washington people be^an to Journay toward Terra Cotta, and many -who had relatives who had been killed and Injured remained at the scene of the wreck- until the special train con veyed the dead and injured to the city. An earlier train which had been dispatched to Tear* Cotta brought In the Ir/jured. whose wounds had been hastily dressed, and they were sent arnainrl to the various hospitals. Three died on the. way to the city, an.i one death occurred In on* of ; the hospitals. The, engine of the rear train is said to b« cat* j of the largest and latest tyre- of passenger •»- j gine* used on the road. The fact of Its six* i probably saved It from total destruction, as th* : principal damage to it was confined to the front f of the engine, and because of this Harry HUde- j brand, the engineer, and his fireman escaped ] with their lives. Hildebrand Is said to hs>v* ! been a substitute. He was later arrested, to- | gether with his fireman. No formal charge, ha» - been placed against them, but they will ba he!d pending an Investigation. The wrecked train was composed of an #n«ln% j a smoker and two day coaches. Th» two rear : coaches were reduced to kindling- wood and th» rear of the smoker was telescoped. So great was : th« impact that fragments of tha local train were scattered along the track tor a consider-;^ able distance. Thaddeus T. Rodey, a laborer at the Terr* Cotta work- 5 , was one of the first of those not . on the train who became aware of the accident. He ran out to the track and saw two women, or.* of whom was alive, and whom hs assisted Ml . her feet. It was only a moment, he said, when he saw many other t-odies stretched, along tn« track. He Immediately communicated by tele phone to the Baltimore & Ohio Kallroad at Washington. MOST VICTIMS KILLED AT ONCE. From the appearance of the bodle3 It Is be lieved that nearly all the victims were killed out right, or died within a few minutes after the 1 - '■. olden Of the dead bodies ?omei were buried / beneath debris, with ""■ tMUii 1 ' that they w« > I' found SHlHcultr. *£*! *€ ira? some time bt-'*"~ fore they could le laid out on the bank. Dr. E. O. Bolt, one of the most prominent M physicians of Washington, and his sons Edwin. V seven year? "M. and Sinclair, five years old, .1 were passengers on the train. Edwin was killed j and the father and other son are missing, arid It is feared by their friends that they are- among the list of unidentified dead at the morgue. A remarkable escape was that of Dr. Parker, of this city. It was said that he was the only man among the passengers who escaped with- . out a scratch. He was in the smoking car asleep at the time of the. accident. CAUSE OF WRECK UNCERTAIN. C W. Galloway, superintendent of transpor tation of the Baltimore & Ohio, said to-night that It was Impossible yet to determine tha . 1 cause, of the wreck- I "We have on this division the modern block system." he said. "Just what occurred we are untable at this hour to say. Because of the confusion Incident to the collision and of the caring for the dead and Injured, -we havo bean unable to consider the proper cause*. "Wo have not yet interrogated the operators, and until we do so we cannot be certain what th« situa- ■ tion was. "\Vt=> shall Institute immediately an Inquiry Into the causes of the collision. That Inquiry will begin to-morrow morning probably " in Baltimore, where all th-> train records are -^ We shall make the inquiry as rigid as po.islbl*. and shall give, the results of It promptly to tho . public through the press." The passengers In the forward coach, •who war* only slightly bruised, heard the groans of the> dying and wounded and did what they could to give aid. A number of the passengers started to walk to Brookland. three-quarters "of a mil* . away. The moment the first of the survivors reached Brookland. a general call was sent out for doc tors and ambulances. Dr. K. W. Prischern. I>r. Stern and Dr. J. H. Brooks, of Brookland. re spond- .1 and were taken to the scene In auto mobiles. One member of the crew of the passenger train, who hobbled into a drug store half an hour after the accident, said: "I can't tell how many have been killed. It is awful. I don't even know Ju^t bom i' happened. The freight engirt* went through the entire train, and it seems to if me as If every one was killed in the last coach . and iruny In the first. The freight' engine BJM St have run past a red target. 1 can't explain the accident In any other way. I can hear to* groans Of the dying ringing hR my ears now." D. W. Baker. United States District Attornty for the District of Columbia, who was a pas senger on the forward > ar. suffered slight in juries. He was able to walk from the wreck to a drug store, where his Injuries were treated. He was later taken to Ms home in an automo bile.
