London. Oct. 4.?In another messnge
through "Tho Times" i orrespondent
on tho I'anama dispute President Taft
? xplalns thnt his proposal to brlng the
mntter before the Supreme Court was
preforable, beciiuse an adverse decision
would be less galling to Amerlcans than
an arbitral award, and Creat Britaln
would stlll not lose her legal rlght to
demand arbitratlon.
In an edltorial "The Times" COHaldarfl
President Taft s explanation very Fatis
taciory as removlng apprehension that
nn appeal tO the Suprenv* Court was
being offered as a stibstitute for ihe
rlght of appeal to The Hague. but thnt
it stlll leaves the whole matter in ;i

"Tho TttncraT asks: "Would not the
dlfhVulty be further aggravated in the
event of the Supreme Cotlli uphnlding

Train Late Leaving Bridgeport.
The bodles of the vlctlms were taken
to a morgue ln Saugatuck. at whlch
sfation the accident occurred. The
train was BBM lo have left Bridgeport
flfteen mlnutes late and was runninf*
at a terriflc rate of speed when it
, passed Pnugatuck. Here the en.lneer
drove his engine lnto a swltch, intend
ing to cross from the lnsld? to the out
slde track, at a polnt ?"?(H) feet from the
statlon and Just east of a culvert.
There was a crash, and the traln be
gan to rock from slde to slde. Tha
engine had Jumped the ralla and lay
on Ita slde. The mall coach. baggage
coach, smoker and chair car began to
plle up agalnst It. Kdward L. Hlll, of
fhlladelphia, one of tlie pai.sengers in
slde the second Pullman, yld to-nlght:
"I knew the traln was Serailed th?
minute It began to sag and roll from
slde to slde. But before 1 could do
anythlng I saw the l.lack |I4m of tha
i engine loom up ln iront of tlie wlndow
where I sat. And as I struggled to help
one of the women who were screaming
there was a tremendous exploston. I
know now that lt was the gas tank
that burst. but I thought so then, for
| the car began to flll wlth gas. We were
j almost suffocated for a moment wlth
the sweet, slckening odor. And then.
l all at once, llamcs tilled the whole Pull
! man."
Fira Burned for Houra.
The traln crew hurried to the _s
slstarue of the lassengers as aoon aa
they could coliect themselve. and ran
to put out the rtre ln the burnlng parlor
car, but the gas fed the flerce flamaa
and they shot oui. long streamera >>f
flre like the flare lamps men u?e to
l.urn B*jay palnt. It was almost im
pos-ilble to approach the car. The
flre departments of South Norwalk aud
Saugatuck were called out. but even
after tlielr arrival the flre burned sev
eral hours before men could get to
the car and take out the bodies.
