DYLAN TELLS HEDLEY
TO END SUBWAY JAM
Promises 'Drastic Action* if
Interborough Fails to
Kun More Trains.
SEES HEALTH DANGER
McAneny Says Mayor Is
Try ing to Forestall Tran
sit Board's Reforms.
HOI K ZONE PLAN DEBATED
Dr. Copeland to Consult Em
ployees About Schedules
for Starting Work.
Mayor Hylan yesterday sent to
Frank Hedley, president of the Inter-1
borough Rapid Transit Company, a;
letter threatening "drastic action" by;
the city unless steps are taken im-j
mediately to run more trains to alle-1
viato unjustifiable congestion in the
subways.
After the publication of the Mayor's
letter George McAneny, chairman of
the Transit Commission, issued the
fallowing comment:
"The Transit Commission has, of
course, been kept completely informed
with relation not only to existing traf
fic conditions, but to the financial
ability of the transit companies. It
will at its next session receive compre
hensive and up to date reports upon
both subjects, and it propones to re
quire of the railroads the fullest meas
ure of relief that their improving sit
uation will permit.
"The letter the Mayor has addressed
"to Mr. Hedley is interesting of course,
?nd If he is willing to be guided by the
Health Commissioner in some of the
matters to which he particularly refers,
his assistance undoubtedly will be help
ful. There will be an abundance of
opportunity for that.
"The Mayor's letter. It so happens,
appears immediately following the an
nouncement of the commission, made at
? public session last week and repeated '
in the press this morning, to the effect j
that in view of the changing situation
1t will be enabled and is prepared to j
proceed with definite orders along the i
lines that have been Indicated. As the
Mayor Is represented at each of the
hearings of the commission I have
no doubt this information has been con- i
veyed to him. and T am also advised :
?that through the taw Department the 1
Hty Is a subscriber each day to a 1
?number of copies of the commission's
?nrlnted proceedings. The apparent co
incidence of action, however, again suir
trents a possible helpful spirit of co
operation."
Mayor's Protest to Hedley.
The Mayor's letter to the Interhorough
president, which provoked this com
ment, said in part:
"Several days ago the Health Com
missioner called attention to the danger
to the public health arising from the
manner of your operation of the city's
subways. He adverted to the possible
necessity for rearranging the hours of
travel on the subways In order to
partly avert the dangerous and unsani
tary conditions of operation by your
company.
"Carrying into effect such a sngges
tfon could only be Justified tempo
rarily by the gravest emergency such
as existed about two years ago when
an epidemic was rife. The necessity for
such an extreme measure does not and
?could not exist If proper and full use
were made of existing subway equip
ment. The Idea that the public should
tw? made to conform Its habits, desires
and business needs to the operating
Inefficiencies of your company Is un
thinkable.
"TTnder the contract of the Inter
thorough Company with the City of
rVew York, you guaranteed to furnish
"safe and adequate' transportation for
a five cent fare. You also covenanted
that "the local and express trains shall
he operated In conformity with the t
traffic requirements.'
"Tou have admitted under oath that |
yon have 'trimmed' to the utmost de-.
grer the services furnished by your com- :
pany. This 'trimming.' according to
vottr own admission, has been carried j
to the last degree In reducing service
Toil have pursued a studied policy of
using the smallest possible portion of
four available equipment in operating
the subways, thus artificially creating
th?? greatest amount of congestion. This
conduct on your part constitutes a
wilful breach of that provision In the
operating contract which guarantees
?safe and adequate' transportation.
Call* Cnncrntlnn Mockery.

under which city transportation linen j
are regulated. Such mockery should

"You admit that the service that your

hours on the city subways. Is hut 17 per

cense In the number of passengers

NESTORIAN PRIEST HELD
FOR THREATENING BRIDE
She Thought Marriage License
Was 'Working Papers.*
When M. Simon Yonan, 57, a Nes
torian priest, of New Brighton, Conn.,
took Miss Julia Mahanna. 21. of 528
Market street. Newark, to the Newark
City Ball Tuesday and obtained a mar
riage license the young woman thought
he was taking out "working papers"
that would entitle her to work in his
home as a housekeeper. The same day 1
they went to the rectory of Christ's
Episcopal Church in Newark and were
married by the Rev. William O. Leslie.
Later In the day. the bride, who neither
speaks nor understands English, learned
that they had been married, and refused
to live with her husband.
Yonan was arrested in Newark yes
terday on a charge that he had threat
ened to shoot his bride and several
others suspected to having prejudiced
her mind against him. The threats are
said to have been mn.de afterr Yonan
heard that relatives and friends of the
young woman had consulted a lawyer i
about having the marriage annulled. 1
Yonan was admitted to bail for arraign
ment to-day.
Miss Mahanna. when a little girl, was
sent to Palestine by her parents and
remained in a French Catholic convent
at Mt. Lebanon until a year ago, when
she returned to her home in Newark.
It Is alleged that, her- family agreed to
have her married to Yonan. believing
that he had money, but that they with
drew their approval when they learned
nis real financial condition. The girl
says she was never told anything about i
the marriage plan.
MYSTERY IN DEATH OF
INSURANCE MAN
Equitable Employee Is Found
Lifeless in Cellar.
Authorities of Monmouth county. New
Jersey, were trying last night to clear
up the mystery in the death of Charles
H. Schaefer, 51, who was found In the
basement of his home at 47 Broadway,
Freehold, ?with a bullet wound in the
left temple. Schaefer was an employee
of the Equitable Life Assurance Society
in New York.
A revolver which he borrowed from
a friend ten davs ago was found near
the body, and this led the authorities
to believe the man probably killed him
self. In view of certain peculiar cir
cumstances. however, the theory that
he might have been murdered has not
been abandoned. There were no powder
marks around the wound and It was
re&ardod as strange that he should
have fired with his left hand if he
killed himself.
Schaefer's body was found near the
furnace when a maid went to gel
kindling wood. His wife said he had
left his room at the usual time to take
a train for New York.

More pictures of rush hour crowd* in
the subway, this time at the Grand Cen

ins during the ruah hour between 7 '30
end 8 :30 o'clock. Police reserves and
extra subway station men worked hard
to keep the crowds on the move, for a
hr.lt in the underground corridors hy
the curious might have meant a bad
traffic Jam.
The big purplish mercury lamp.*, liar
lug brightly, seemed to affect the subway I
travelers as arc lamps sITect moths, and
many of the movie struck struggled hard
to register their faces before the click

during the rush hours on a matinee day j
in present conditions.
Mr. Harkness emphasized the fact that !
every precaution had been taken to j
assure the safety of ?he people during j
the rush hour picture miking. A pollc-i

WOMEN ESCAPE DANGER
Fort Tot ten Men Buffet Seas
Alone?Phone Aids Rescue,
Boat Saved. All Happy.
Shipwrecked in New York city?
marooned upon a spit of rock in Long
Island Sound, between Stepping Stone
Light and the Long Island shore?
twenty-eight coaet artillerymen. Includ
ing a captain, from Fort Totten Joked
themselves through five hours of bitter
cold and storm buffeting yesterday |
morning, and came out of the adventure j
none the worse for their extraordinary j
experience.
The soldiers at ?Fort Totten liave a I
basketball team. Challenged by the
Fort Slocum outfit, they went there on
Wednesday evening, using the big army
launch L-51. In charge of the party
was Capt. Harold Embree, U. S. A.,
coach of the team, and under him was
Sergeant John Freel, in direct command I
of the launch, with Private Chris
Schwaderman as engineer and Private
Felix Schlick as deckhand. With the
party went several women folk of the
fort and nearby mainland, wives or
sweethearts of the Totten athletes and
their supporting rooters, with a few
civilians. Including Tommy Kearns. ref
eree, of Whltestone.
Fort Totten in a fast and snappy
game put it all over Fort Slocum by a <
score of 37 to 27, and after the game J
the Slocum folk entertained with din- I
ner and a dance. The fun would have !
lasted late in ordinary circumstances, j
but Sergeant Freel. who had been ;
sniffing at the weather, urged an early 1
departure. So twenty-eight men and a
dozen women bundled Into the seventy
five foot motor launch and put from
shore Just as snow began to fall heavily
about 10 P. M.
Having landed the women in the teeth
of the rising storm, the artillerymen
started again, confident that they could |
And their way across the Sound and j
through the tangle of islands and reefs. :
By midnight the thickly falling snow |
was a blanket that obscured all signal
lights. The Sound was whipped so
savagely by the wind that seas broke
Incessantly over the launch, drenching
the men and keeping them busy at ball
ing. Suddenly the L-51 stopped with a ?
violent Jerk and Jar, and the men who :
were standing were pitched in a heap. :
One of the numerous reefs that skirt i
' the buoyed channel had claimed the ,
I launch and held her fast.
At 2 A. M. Freel took the launch's j
i small boat, using planks for oars, and !
? started for land with Schwaderman and '
j Schlick as aids. A dozen times they 1
were nearly capsized. Finally Freel
saw a gleam of light. The boat was i
driven toward the pale glow and pres- !
! ently the dinghy beached on Hunters ]
Island and the three weary, half-frozen
men were pounding upon the door of the ;
j old Hunter mansion, in whose upper
: windows was a light.
John Carroll and his son Joseph an
swered the knocks and cries and did the
best they could to get somo warmth into
| the callers. Freel and his men were
, thinking more about the plight of their
! comrades left behind upon that sea
| washed, wind-swept Jag of rock, the
stranded motorboat likely at any time,
so Freel feared, to wash off and sink.
' The telephone soon set the wheels mov
ing for the rescue of the marooned ones.
Police Launch 1 was first to sight the
shipwrecked gunpolnters. and the police
passed out hot coffee and sandwiches
before anything else was attempted.
Then the Harts Island boat, the RIkers
Island, steamed up and the men were
: taken off.
Three men, outfitted with dry. heavy
| clothing, were left aboard the launch,
! which la'er was pulled off the reef upon
j a rising tide. At the fort last night it
! was said that nobody had suffered even
I a bad cold.

MURDERED BY ORDER
OF SECRET SOCIETY
Crescent Cut Over Litti's Eye
Sign of Cal&brian Organiza
tion. Says Detective.
THREE ARRESTS MADE
Informers Say Victim Was
Pointed Out on Day of White
Plains Stabbing-.
Coroner Edward Fitzgerald of West- !
Chester yesterday held Mike and .Toe
Benedetto of White Plains and Tony ,
Martillttl of Port Chester for the Grand
Jury, which will Investigate the niur- >
der of Paolo Litti, an Italian laborer,
who was found with eight stab wounds
in the back last Sunday morning on
the Mount Calvary Cemetery road near
White Plains. The authorities say that 1
they found Litti's pocketbook and dresa i
suitcase in Joe Benedetto's house at 6
Tarrytown road. White Plains.
Sheriff George J. Werner said last
night that Detective Frank Cherico had
established that Litti was the victim I
of a Calabrian secret society, the name
of which the Sheriff did not, make pub- ?
lie. According to the Sheriff, the de
tective has established also that Litti j
had committed some crime against the
?society in Italy and that word had been
sent to kill him. .
When Litti was caught in a lonely
road and murdered a crescent shaped
cut was made over his right ?ye. This
cut is rhe mark of the society and is
always used to identify its murders.
The original explanation of this mark
was that the victim had cut his face
when he fell in the roadway after be
ing stabbed, but Sheriff Werner says
that Detective Cherico has established
that the, murderers must have made it
In order to warn all Italians that the
secret society had killed the man.
The evidence against the Benedetto
brothers was given by Andrew Far
ressl and Rocco Mannella of North
Tarrytown, who were arrested as ma
terial witnesses. Mannella said that
he and Barressl and Mike Benedetto
were driving in an automobile along the
Tarrytown road before the murder and
passed Litti, who was with Joe Bene- ;
dot to and Martilittl. According to
Mannella, Mike Benedetto said: j
"Those fellows are going to get Litti j
to-night."
That was only a few hours before i
the body was found, according to fhe
Sheriff.
SELF-EFFACING SNOW

City; Extras Not Needed.
The leonine wlldn?ss of March on its
debut did not extend into yesterday, J
which in the early morning, when the ;
quilt of three inches of snow was not
sloppy and soiled, did have a sugges
tion of p?al winter. The snow was of
the self eliminating sort that ably as
sisted the Street Gleaning Department,
which needed only its regular force, so
that many idle men who wanted jobs
a? snow removers were turned away.
Winter still has eighteen days to
bluster and no one knows what may

Weather Bureau. Then was not much
winter in the air yesterday, the tem
perature In the later afternoon rising
to 37 and the northwest wind, at its
worst, not being able to send the
anemometer faster than twenty miles, j
Later only a zephyr idled out of the j
West. The forecast calls for cloudiness ?
and no decided change in temperature !
to-day.

In the Old Times
Down at
New Orleans
some of the Creoles had a
habit of using this phrase to
express doubt, "Yes, I will
expect you to keep your
promise when a week has
four Thursdays in it, not
before."
George Eliot once wrote,
"Blessed is the man who,
having nothing to say, ab
stains from giving wordy
evidence of the fact."
It is sure and certain that
truth may be blamed, but
never ashamed.
Untruthfulness is the lep

A New Idea in
Belmaison
* ? ?
The red leather chair
illustrated, is a Spanish
eighteenth century chair
whose original came out
of an old Italian palace
where it had been for
generations.
* ? *
It was accurately
copied by BELMAISON
in American red mo
rocco leather, and gold
tooled in a tiny rosette
in a simple all-over pat
tern.
? * ?
Its smart finish in yel
low braid gives it a
truly regal look. $300
for the reproduction.
A Louis XVI. Chair
from Windsor Castle
where it had been in
Queen Victoria's day
was brought here by Bel
maison and before be
ing sold was copied
sumptuously in a Bur
gundy red morocco
leather, with nail-head
finish.
* * *
Its sweeping bergere
lines are full of grace
and the frame of the old
original has been per
fectly simulated in old
ivory-colored paint with
touches of red to match
the leather. $250 for the
reproduction.
Both chairs may be repro
duced in leather of any tone
for a room of whatever
scheme.
