Train Jumps Track at Fulton
Street and Wipes Out Brook
lyn Service.
No Warning at Uptown Stations.
Thousands Being- Held in Cars
on Trip Downtown Long-
After Accident.
The worst blockade la th» history of
the subway occurred last night when a
Brooklyn express Jumped the tracks just
above the Fulton street station. All
previous <.b= r ru«-rion records broken.
Hardly half an hour had elapsed after
the accident when *he prinnp a i stations
were scenes of wildest disorder. The
Tir:;<» ch..pen for the mishap was. as
usual. mo«t opportune. The trouble
makini?; train tired of k^epin^ to its path
on the rails at exactly five minutes after
f> o'clock.
At that time the thousands employed
in the bis; office i wildings downtown
were hustling a? fas: aa they could for
their homes. Other thousands who work
further uptown were obHvtous to every
thing excepting the idea of reaching the
family flresiio as soon a? possible, and
th' thousands of both groups steered for
th' subway.
Those who descended the stairway at
Fulton street were at once engulfed in
a mob of struggling, pushing, pulling
person? who. through dint of their physi
cal stamina, had succeeded in getting 1 out
of the train which had left the beaten
path?. The ticket agent at first was
perfectly willing to di=p'>?e of a few more
yards of paper just to bring his receipts
up, although he must have received an
inkling that delays were in store. Those
■who had been passengers on the train
tl<at made the .irrmble turned back the
would -be travellers, however.
They told of a sudden crash as the
train left the rails, of the shrieks of the
women as they v. ere jostled against one
another, and of the uproar which spread
through the whole train. They related
what a marl scramble it was to reach the
«--ta;ion platform after the guards finally
ga\e the word that the coast was clear.
Car Crashes Into Wall.
According to their story, the train left
the Brooklyn Bridge station a few min
utes before ■"> and was halted near the
Pulton stre.t station by the block sig
nal. The motormnn had just thrown on
the power again when he felt the front
trucks of the forward car leave the
tracks. He shut oft the power instantly,
but the train had already gathered mc
mentum and* the front car dashed into
the wall just at the entrance to the sta
tion. It was driven forward by the im
petus of the rear cars and then jumped
the tracks, crashing Into a steel support.
The cars were plunged into darkness.
The passengers made a wild rush for
the doors and some even tried to leap
through th* windows. It was with the
greatest difficulty that the guards finally
succeeded in quieting their fears and
marched them through the cars to the
front of the door of the forward car,
where they were helped to the station
platform. The turmoil soon became so
great there, however, that the reserves
were called from the John and Green
wich streets stations.
In the mean time orders had be»-n sent
: all Brooklyn trains ut the Brook
lyn Bridge. Th.- result was that from
|p to th* bridge there was
a solid ms ' T.mity. The crowd
■waxuied around the trolley loops and
a. Rosa to City Hall Park. Th«-
Burface cars were swampted and police
from the oak street station were called
tell the disturbance.
The worst block along the line was nt
the Brooklyn Bridge. Trains from up
town poured in packed to the doors with
sweltering passengers who had been
stalled from twenty to fifty minutes at
various places during their ride. No
warning ha been given at the uptown
stations thatgthe road was tied up, the
ticket sellers continuing to do business
just as though no accident had happened.
Thousands were therefore turned out on
the platforms to make their way as best
they could to the street above.
Many Left Without Carfare.
Hundreds had paid their last nickel to
go to Brooklyn, only to find themselves
stranded at the bridge. The men in the
ticket booths were besieged with re-
Quests to ma\e out pome sort of a trans
fer that would be good for the Brooklyn
trip. The only satisfaction that the com
pany gave though was to hand out block
tickets. Those accepting them were told
that they could use them on the subway
to-day. Two schoolgirls were among
those who didn't have the necessary
nickel to take them^across the bridge.
They. too. grot block" tickets, but they
had to walk home. A good many others
walked over the bridge rather than
tempt fate on the cars already called
upon to do double duty.
All the express stations above the
Brooklyn Bridge were centres of wild
disorder The platforms were thronged
with those madly endeavoring to crowd
Into the few trains which were running.
It was not until more than two hours
and ■ half after the accident happened
that the selling of tickets was stopped
and blockade signal hung In the win
dows of the booths.
At goto street some of the southbound
trains were switched to the northbound
tracks. This helped^ to relieve the con
gestion further down the line somewhat
but the small number of trains only
added to the inconvenience of the north
bound passengers " m points below.
The methods used in handling the situa
tion by the road official* called forth
many protests on the part of the passen
Many express trains were stalled just
above 14th street and the passengers had
the pleasure of feeing as many as five
locals pass by. When they tried to go

First Deputy Commissioner,
Recalls Fact That Former Judge
Defended the Sugar
Candidate Shows How He Made
Great Financial Sacrifice in
Accepting District At
torneyship. -.
[By Telegraph .to The Tribune.]
Auburn. N. V., Oct. 20.— Replying to
night in a formal statement to the ac
cusation of ex-Judge Parker that he
acted improperly In accepting a $59,000
fee for special work in the sugar prose
cutions and the Morse appeal. Henry L.
Stimson turned the tables on his assail
ant. He brought up the fact that Judge
Parker had defended the Sugar Trust.
He characterized Mr. Parker's criticism
as "rather contemptible." He said:
The statements which Judge Parker has
been making as to my compensation for
services to the government have been
brought to my attention. They involve
such a complete misrepresentation of the
farts that it Is worth while to make this
statement in reply. Judge Parker asserts
that when I was appointed District Attor
ney I was a "young lawyer' anxious for
a Job of United States District Attorney
and its ?;''."••• ■ year. As a matter of fact,
I was a member of one of the most suc
cessful law firms in New York City, and
my net income from my practice, over and
above all expenses, for the four years pre
ceding my appointment as District Attor
ney had averaged between 123.000 and $24,000
a year. I surrendered this to become Dis
trict Attorney, giving up entirely my pri
vate practice and accepting an income of
about 40 per cent of what 1 had been pre
viously earning.
Judge Parker then goes on to assert that
"after a few years of service" (as District
Attorney) "he (I) saw an opoprtunlty to
make more money out of the government
than the salary, if its representatives would
consent." He asserts thai lor this purpose
1 resigned the office and took a special re
tainer to complete the sugar cases. That
i* rather a contemptible statement for a
former judge of the Court of Appeals who
knows me and my position as well as Judge
Parker does. As a matter at fact, I re
signed my position to go back into private
practice, and no one knows better than
Judge Parker the amount of money which
I could have made in New York practice
with my reputation as District Attorney
had I returned into private life free from
any obligations to the government and de
voted my time to making money ror my
self, as he did when he resigned from the
Court of Appeals.
Instead Attorney General Wickersham
and President Tatt. not only without any
.• , lest of mine, but against my own
desire, urged me to argue the Moi ap
peals and try the sugar and customs cases,
some of which I had begun. I collected
$2,500,000 for the government under that re
tainer. I tried and won three appeals
arising out of the Morse case, going up as
far as the United States Supreme Court.
The figure of *.":< •«' which Judge Parker
states, was the gross compensation paid me
by the government. Of this I received per
sonally not more than $26,000 for the work
of a year and a quarter. This was less
than i was earning even before I became
District Attorney.
Had I been on** or" the district attorneys
in the districts of the United States where
the fee system still prevails I should have
been entitled under federal law to a com
mission of 2 per cent for the collection of
the 13.600.000, or $70,000, even If I had done
nothing else Judsre Parker best knows
how much I would have received for the
same work had I been in private practice,
because he once defended the Sugar Trust
when I prosecuted it. As a matter of fact.
I never pent in any bill to th* government,
but mv compensation was fixed by Presi
dent Taft and Attorney General Wicker
shatn without any suggestion from myself.

Experienced balloonists say that at leas'
