Harlem -Police Search
If there Is any confusion to-day In
the registering; of the t.000.000 New
Yorkers, moro or less, who are In duty
and honor bound to enroll their names
tinder the law calling for the services
of men between the ages of 18 and 45
Inclusive, the confusion will be due to
the obtusoness or dereliction of men
concerned and not because every prep-
.ration has not been made by the draft
machinery to list the men accurately and
It was announced last night by Mar
tin Conboy, director of the draft for
thla rllv. that the nlans for the regis
tratlon had been completed and that at
7 o'clock this morning every registra
tion place in tne city wru oe equipped
to handle the registration at that place.
A Httle more than his duty is ex
pected to-day of every man In New
York affected by the present draft law.
It Is his bare duty to register his name
at the proper place between the hours
Bpocined. 7 A. St. to 9 P. OI.
Further he Is expected. If he Is a
sound American, to find the place where
he must register without putting others
to the trouble of finding It for him: to
register early bo that he may not 1m
jiede the registration of those who will
have no opportunity to enroll before the
end of the day ; and to Inform acquaint
ances who do not understand English
or 'who may be less Intelligent than
himself what their duty Is and where
their proper place of registration la
located. And If he Is an employer It
Is his duty also to arrange the business
at his establishment so that every man
In It who ought to register will have
an opportunity to do so during the day.
Adding to the full and detailed ln-
ntructlons which have already oeen is
sued from his office within the last two
weeks. Mr. Conboy gave out tne roi
lowing for publication this morning:
There should be no lingering doubt In
ny one's mind at this time of his duty
te register If he Is within the new. ages.
This applies to every man of these ages
without exception. It not only applies
to citizens of the United States but every
alien as well, whether he has declared
his Intention of becoming a citizen or
not. It applies to enemy aliens. In
hort no one is relieved from the neces
sity of registering unless he has already
registered on one of the three previous
registration days June 5. 1917, and
June S and August 24, 191S. Of course
those who registered under the State
military enrolment must register again
t this time.
. 'To-day should be recorded by the his
torians as one of the most Important
days In the annals of this country. II
1s the duty or every man to assist In the
work of registration.
"All employers can be of Incalculable
Bid In assisting In this work If they will
permit their employees to register dur
ing the day. Many of the largest con-
asms In the city have given me thslr
assurance that they will do so. realising
that unless the work of registration can
be distributed during the courso of tne
dav rreat hardship and difficulty win
be experienced both by the registrants
and the large body or patriotic voiun
leers who are assisting the Government
in this work.
Changes of Address.
"One further word of advice to regis
trants. They will save themselves In
convenience, annoyance and probable em
tarrassment If they will bear In mind
after to-morrow that every time they
change their addresses they must Inform
their local boards of such changes In
order that notices may be mailed to such
tilaces as will reach the registrants.'
Referring to tho announcement from
Washington that the first call under the
new draft will be for men between the
ages of 19 to 20 and 32 to 36 Sir. Con
"Local boards will be notified shortly
that on a day to be fixed they are to
send out auestionnalres only to those
registrants of September 12 who on that
day had attained ineir nineteenth oirin
day and had not attained" their thirty
seventh birthday. Sfen within these
oges will receive questionnaires, will be
classified, and will be called for service
according to the classification.
"In other words, questionnaires will
be mailed at the time to be fixed, only
to reentrants of the ages specined
Tater on, men of the other classes with
in the new draft will receive their ques
tlonnalres when Instructions are re
ceived from the Provost Marshal Gen
eral." It has been estimated that 1,700,000
men will register to-day In this State,
and that CO per cent, of them will
enroll from among the five boroughs of
this city. In the State altogether more
than 4,000 registration places will be
open and registrars to tho number of
18,750 have volunteered to tako the
names and other data of the men who
will present themselves.
Excitement In Harlem.
Considerable excitement was caused
In Harlem yesterday by the appearance
of placards urging men within the new

10 CENT FARE RAID

There Is hope for those Brooklynltes
who saw visions yesterday of paying a
ten cent fare, after the Brooklyn Rapid
Transit Company had filed new sched

extract an extra jitney from persons who
were thoughtless enough to live In a
locality wheie the transportation line
was covered by two franchises.
Without hesitation the Public Service
Commission announced It had used Its
power to suspend the operation of the
schedules for sixty days and that It In
tended to "Investigate." The commis

yesterday to the provision of the law
which gave It the right to suspend' the
schedules for an additional perlcM of
three months. In case the Investigation

Information had to do with the affairs
of the big munition factories of tho New
Haven district Some of It was of
character that would enable a spy to fix
tho dates of departures of cargo boats
searing munitions from Atlantic ports.
Mis Kreutzinger made a scene. As
two agents of the Department of Justice
passed through the rows of desks occu
pled by men and women operators Stlss
Kreutzinger saw them coming and hastily
tore up several pieces of paper contain'

Department of Justice.
One of the agents gathered the pieces
of paper' torn by SIIss Kreutzinger. They
are to be pasted together.
SIIss Kreutzinger continued her pro
tests while descending In the elevator
and In the corridor on the way to the
street In the office of the Department
of Justice she was permitted to wait
while she regained her composure and
then was examined by Chief De Woody
After the examination Chief De Woody
said that Stlss Kreutzinger had admitted
that In 1915 and 1916 and again during
the last six weeks she had been sys
tematically turning over Information of
value to Germany to a man who pro
fessed to be able to forward It abroad
As to the Identity of this man Chief

SIIss Kreutzinger was an expert oper
ator. Her assignment to the busy New

to her ability. She was reserved In her
Intercourse with other employees and
sought no friends among them. The
only way In which she appeared to seek
attention from her associates was In the

THE SUN, THURSDAY,
B. R. T. BLOCKADE
Thousands Delayed 2 Hours
at Peak of Rush.
Thousands of passengers were delayed
for two hours and scenes of confusion
resulted from a block at the peak of the
rush last night In the Essex and De
Uncey street station of the new B. It T.
subway. Several persons were hurt and
It was necessary to call out reserves.
The congestion arrected other lines or
the system on both sides of the river
and was tho more serious because many
of the persons involved a majority of
whom were women were only becoming
accustomed to the new method of trav
elling to and from Brooklyn by means
of the line over the Williamsburg Bridge.
The troublo started when an empty
subway train that was being switched
Into service at the Essex and Delancey
street station fouled (he tracks, blocking
both the east and wost bound lines. est
bound trains piled up all the way across
the Williamsburg Bridge and eastbound
trains on tho Slanhattan aide of the river

Owners of sightseeing buses and mov
ing vans reaped a harvest for a couple

fore the block was many minutes old the

had become so great and the disgruntled
passengers so threatening that a woman

and ran to the Elizabeth street police
After much difficulty one line was
cleared and a shuttle system Instituted,
but It was-nearly 8 o clock before any
thing like normal service was resumed.
ON WAR MISSION
Bishop of Oxford and the Rev.
A. T. Guttery Here to
The Right Rev. Charles Gore, Bishop
of Oxford, and the Rev. Arthur T. Gul
tery of London, president of the Primi
tive Methodist Conference and one of
the best known Nonconformists In Eng
land, arrived In this country yesterday
on a seven weeks speaking trip that will
take them Into many States. They arc
here at the Invitation of the British Slln
letry of Information and the National
Committee on the Churches nnd the
Moral Alms of the War, which Is con
ducting a campaign "to quicken the
spirit of America In support of the Pres
Ident's policies In prosecuting the war
for democracy. International justice ana
a league of nations."
The distinguished divines agreed that
there was no question but that the
church folks were heart and soul In this
gght against Germany.
The visitors were entertained at lunch'
eon at 8herry's by Geoffrey Butler, head
of the British Pictorial Division, after
which they outlined at the Yale Club
their reasons for their Intense Interest
In the nationwide campaign to popular
ize among church people the Ideals of a
League of Nations which they regard as
"one of the essential alms In the war"
"We assert, first," tho Rev. 'Sir. Guttery
said, "that this war was forced on the
world by German ambitions. Germany
had no warrant for war In any attitude
of suspicion or hostility on the part of
other nations. Every one of tho Allies
has been brought In as a protest against
German Invasion of world peace, so that
to us war, hateful ns war Is In Itself,
has become a moral duty In tho Interest
of the only peace that Is consistent with
"This brings our conviction that the
call to military eervlce becomes a call to
service that Is consecrated to a great
cause, worthy of the fullest and best
that good mep can give. This explains
the seemingly strange paradox witnessed
In England. Even before conscription
our churches and Sunday schools gave
their beet sons to the war. feeling they
were maintaining their fidelity to the
Prince ot Peace and that war was a sac
rifice of the best for the highest good.
"It Is our duty to create public
opinion and spirit by virtue of which,
statesmen whose buslncs It Is, can de
vise means whereby humanity can be
released of this scourge.
Sir. Gutterj', who recently returned
from the front and saw our troops nt
Chateau Thierry, said that America's
entrance Into the war makes the vic
tory "a mathematical certainty."
The BUhop of Oxford said at the
luncheon at Sherry's that "literally the
greatest necessity of the moment Is to
deepen tho good understanding among
the nations who are now fighting the
fight for freedom."
W. SI, Slassey. Prime Minister of
New Zealand, declared his hope that
the war would not stop until nil power
for evil Is taken away permanently from
Germany. He said he would like to
think that this was tho last war, but he
didn't. As long as there aro ambitious
and unscrupulous nations, he added, and
as long as human nature remains un
changed, wars will play a part

WITHDRAWAL IS ORDERED
National Defence Lcaguo Per
suades Publisher to Tako
Work Off Market.
The National Security Teague took
pleasure last night In announcing that
at Its request the George H. Doran Pub
lishing Company had 'withdrawn from
circulation a book which It has published
recently under the title "Two Thoosand
Questions and Answers About the War."
The volume has been withdrawn because
It has been discovered to contain a largo
amount of matter favorable to Germany
and to be Impregnated with "a suotie
vein of disparagement of the high prin
ciples for which the Allies are fighting."
No author's name appeared on the title
page, I but the name ?f George Creel,
chairman of the Committee on Public
Information, Is signed to an Introduction
to It, Sir. Creel being made to say. "Such
volumes as this are the text books with
which we will have to begin. It gives
the background of the difficulties out of
which the war arose. ... It Indi
cates the necessary basis for a perma
nent settlement of the terrible dispute.
The 'Two Thousand Questions and An
swers' In my opinion constitutes a vital
nart of the national defence."
It was explained last mgni mat tne
Geonrn H. Doran company published the
book at the request of the Reuleio of Re-
vUtca. It was not edited or even reaa
closely before publication, the assump
tion being that, carrying Sir C'eel's im
primatur. It had a sort of official status.
Slore than 1,000 copies circulated before
the book's true character was discovered.
A German Masterpiece.
Dr. Claude H. Van Type of the de
partment of history of the University of
Michigan, who Is now serving as edi
torial director of the National Security
League's bureau of education, took the
trouble to go through the book with
great care and reports upon It as fol
"In my opinion It Is a masterpiece of
German propaganda. The German Gov
ernment could not havo devised anything
mere Insidious, more calculated to de
stroy our faith In our allies and to In
sinuate Into the American mind excuses
for Germany, Indorsed by the chair
man of the Committee on Public Information-
it becomes a menaoe to the
American morale, and as no author's
name Is given no one Is made to appear
responsible but the writer of the Intro
duction." The following have been selected by
Dr.. Van Tyne as especially luscious
morsels of German propaganda, picked
at random from the pages of the book:
P. it. Q. Did the German Em

P. 24. U. How would the people
of Alsace-Lorraine vote In a plebiscite?
A. The -""Encyclopedia Brltannlca,
1910. eleventh edition, Cambridge. Eng
land, leans to the opinion that they
would wish to remain German. .
Sir Harry H. Johnston, the well known
British Colonial official, wrote In the
English Nineteenth Centura Magatine:
"If a plebiscite were callod, absolutely
uncontrolled by Government officials, It
would probably bo found that there
was an overwhelming majority of votes
in . . Alsace-Lorraine for Inclusion

often. . . . Whenever France wanted

and it was under the Inspiration of a
burning zeal and love for home and

P. 215. Q. What Is the German
people's attitude toward tho Kaiser?
A. With the exception of the most
radical Socialists, the German peoplo
hold the Kaiser In the highest esteem.
Q. Has Germany n constitution?
A. Yes. It has a written constitution.
which Is, on the whole, similar to the
constitution ot most large nations.
P. 216. Q. Is the German TarHa

A, In soma ways It Is like Congress.

on the other hand, represents not the
people of Germany, but the States spe
cifically, ns our Senate was supposed
to do when United States Senators were
selected by State legislatures Instead
of being elected by popular suffrage. In
fact our Senators still represent States

P. 1. Q. Do the best informed stu
dents ot world politics feel that tho war
could have been avoided?
A. The war at first appeared to be
tho result of Germany's determination
to grasp and make secure her "place In
the sun" along lines quite similar to
those upon which tn the past had been
built the British Kmplre. tho French
Colonial Empire and the tremendous
P. 2. Q. What were the great spe
cific pre-war rivalries?
A. (3) British control of the world
sea. which bound a huge part of the
world together as "The British Kmplre"
(The all red belt nround the earth, as
shown on British postage stamps) and
tho consequent control of nearly the
whole colonial area of earth.
P. 225. Q. Were German eoldlers
worse than others In the march on
A. According to revelations maco by
correspondents who managed to get
through to Pekln, and by officers after
the troublo was over, there seems to
have been very little to choose between
the conduct of the various troops. Of
all, the Japanese emerged with the
cleanest record, and the Tonklnese
troops of the French with the worst.
Q. Has war ever produced so much
hatred as this one?
A. Always much the same kind of
attacks as now on the Germans.

Ono Canadian Captain, Eye
Shot Ont, Tells of Prison
A British ship which docked at an At
lantic port yesterday brought ninety-one
passengers, twenty of Whom were Ca
nadian members of the Royal Flying
Corps. Though all had been more or
less severely wounded they were dis
gusted with the suggestion that they
were Invalided home. Insisting they were
merely on leave and were soon to return
to the front
'Not on your life," was the quiet but
grim reply of Capt Daniel Owens, a
twenty-four-year-old filer of Annapolis,
N. 8.. to this question. "Once you have
been up against the Boche." he added,
"you're going again and you aro going
as long as you can. And after you have
been In their hospitals and prisons you
are going still stronger If such a thing
Is possible. I have had that experience

Capt Owens was bitter; but then, as
he viewed It he had cause to be. He
was not only 111 treated In both hospitals
and prisons but before he reached either

He saw other prisoners, among them
Americans, starving on German food,
and only able to keep alive because of
the occasional packages sent them by tha
Red Cross. And In addition the Captain
lost his left eye, another, score which he
has to settle.
It was In October that Capt Owens
and Lieut. Hacker, also of tha Royal
Flying Corns, went on a bombing expe
dition In the Lorraine sector. On the re
turn trip they were still thirty miles
within tho German lines when attacked
by six machines Tho Canadians put
three of the planes out of commission
but were finally forced to descend out of
gear after Owen's eye was shot out. one
of Hacker's legs was shattered and the
"Three Boche machines followed us
down," said Capt Owens, "and though
they knew we were out .of control they
continued to fire until we almost reached
the ground. Great sportsmanship, what?
And then Instead of sending for medical
aid or helping us themselves they rifled

selves to everything we had.
"We laid there for an hour and then
were thrown Into n cart of filth and car

had overlooked anything.

Reld was senior First Lieutenant of
Battery A. 306th Field Artillery. Going
to the front ten days before his death,
which occurred on August 22, he became
acting Captain tn command of the bat
tery. On the night of August 21 the
battery shelled German positions with
telling effrct It was protecting the nd
vance of nn Infantry regiment. On their
return Infantrymen were asked what
they had seen t a tannery which was
the speclat target because It sheltered
nests of German machine guns.
"Thero was no tannery," they said.
The next morning the battery was per
sonally congratulated by tho Colonel of
the regiment for Its good work. Reld
was doubly happy because he had Just
been recommended for a captaincy and
two clays before had completed his physi
cal examination. He felt so good that
he sent for a company barber and In

Germans had left under a. tree when
Suddenly two German shells landed,
one to the right, the other to the left
of the battery position, followed by a
rain of them. The men counted 120
shells in fifteen minutes. They look to
the dugouts. A sergeant safely made
the rounds of all the dugouts, warning
the occupants that the Germans were
throwing gas shells.
A man who had been wounded In a
dugout fifty yards from the one which
sheltered Lieut Reld and a group shouted
for Reld, who Instantly, without telling
where he was going, left his dugout and
ran through tho bombardment to the
wounded soldier. The wound proved to
bo comparatively slight Reld dressed It
and started back toward his own dugout
hen he was half way across the zone
of Are tho bombardment became so tierce
that he saw he could not get through.
But several yards beyond him was a
ditch two feet deep. In which lay a man
who had been caught In the fire. The
men In Reld's dugout saw him make a
flying baseball slide into this ditch. Ho
landed all right Then a gas shell burst
