VOL. LXXIII. WOODVILLE, MISS., SATURDAY, / SEPTEMBER 10, 1898. A FEArfUL COLLISION, Trolly Car and Locomotive Come in Contact. A Score of Persons Killed--The Loeomo. tire Cut Through Like a Knife--The fcene Was a Sickening Spectacle, Some One Blundered. COHOS, N. Y., Sept. 5.--An appalling disaster oeeu,.Ted in this city shortly be- "fore 8 o'clock tonight. Shortly before that time a trolley car of the Troy City Railroad Company was struck by the night boat special of the Delaware & lludsot Railroad at a crossing at the wes end of the Hudson river .bridge which connects this city with Lansing- burg, and its load of human freight was hurled int lm air. Eighteen of the 'thirty-five passengers are dead, and at aeast'ten of the remainder will die. The ,cars entering the city from Lansing- were crowded with passengers re- from a Unbar Day picnic at a pleasure resort near Troy. Car No. 192 of the City Railroad @as'lie victim of fhe disaster. It came over the h..idge about 7:35 o'clock, laden with a merry party of people freat rom the enjoyment of the day. The crossing wher the accident oc- CArred is at a grade.

The tracks of the street car line run at a grade from 6he bridge to the point whmre the disaster took place. In consequence f this fact and the requent passage of trains, it has been the rule for each motorcar conductor to stop his ear and go forward to observe the railroad tracks and signal his car to proceed if no trains are in sight. II cannot be ascertained whether that rule was complied with on this occasion, for all events prior to the crash are for- gotten by those who were involved. The motor car was struck directly in the center by the engine of the train, which was going at a high rate of _speed. The accident came without the slightest warning. The car was upon the tracks before the train loomed in sight, and no power on earth could have saved it. The motornlan evi- dently saw the train approaching as he reached the track and opened his con- troller, but in vain. With a crash that was heard for blocks the engine struck the lighter vehicle. The effect was horrible. The motor ear parted in two, both s,tions being hurled into the air in SpiRters. The mass of humanity, for the car was crowded tt, overflowing, was torn and mangled. Those in the front of tke car met with the worst fate. The force of the collision was there experienced to the greatest de- gree, and every human being in that section of the car was killed. The scene was horrible. Bodies had been hurled rote the air and their head- less and limbles trunks were found in some cases fifty feet from the crossing. The pilot of the engine was smashed and amid its wreckage were the maimed corpses of two women. The passengers of the train suffered no injury in addt. tion o a violent Muck. The majority of the passengers of the trolley cat were young people. They included many women. Withiu ten minutes after the collision fully one-half of the population of the City were surging about the vicinity iu an endeavor to ascertain if relatives were among the unfortunates. Many of the corpses were nnrcog- sizable. 'he crash was frightful ;n ttm results, lIcadless wouxen with gay summer dresses bathed in their own and the blood of others; limbs without trunks or without any means of iden- tifying to whom they belonged; women's and men's heads witll crushed und distorted features: bodies crushed and flattened; these sights constituted " a spectacle most horrible to behold.

The Peace Commissioners W'ill Be Finally Announced and Instrueted--Gertuany and tile Samoan Question to Receive Attention, WASIIINGTON, Sept. 4.--It can he stated on excellent authority that Jus- tice White has-not officially accepted the appointmeit s a member of .the peace commission. The official with whom 1 talked toddy told me that the question is still open, and this would seem to indicate that there is a chance. of the Supreme Com'tjustihe assumin mdmbelnshiion thK*bmmissien. It m known, however that the president has several other prominent men in view in case Justice White's declina- tion should be final, and one of these will be invited to act. It is explicitly stated by administra- tion officials now in Washington that the fifth member of the American repre- sentatives will be selected the early part of the present week. and that the first session of the full representation will be held at the department 'h latter part of the week to study the important work before it and to receive from the president instructions which he will present to them. The president will be in Washington on Tuesday morning, and the cabinet meeting to be held on that day will un- doubtedly consider a draft of the in- structions which the president and Sec- retary Day have been considering since they left Washingtou. Acting Secre- tary Moore expects to have ready for submission to that c(mamission all the data relating to the Philippines which it is possible to obtain and a statement of the claims arising from personal in- juries or property losses in Cuba which have been submitted i)y Americans. I was informed late this afternoon that the French embody had not yet in- formed the state department of the ap-. pointment of panish% commissioners It is not expected by administration officials that the Madrid will transmit this information until thereeeipt of le names of the American representatives, which will be tranmnltted on Tuesday, after the return of the president. Courtesy Shown by Spain, It is recalled that the Spanish joy" ernmcnt did not communicate the names of the military commissioners appointed to meet the American mili- tary commissioners to arrange for the evacuation of Cuba and Porto Rico un- til after Secretary Day had handed the names of the latter to the French am- bassador for transmission to Madrid. Besides the instructions to the peace commissioners, the president will have a number of important matters to dis- pose of upon his return. IIe will have to prepare an instruction to the Amer- ican ambassador at St. Petersburg in reply to the invitation of the czar to participate in the disarmament con- terence. While administration officials with whom thane talked look upon the czar's proposition as quixotic and not directly applicable to the United States, still there is no doubt that the presi- dent will find it desirable to approve of the czar's plan and to inform him hat an American representative will attend. The president Will also confer '.ith the American members of the CanWSian commission, regarding their work and tim concessions they shall make in re- turn for equally valuable favors. The Samoan question, which Ger- many is trying to bring to life again, will also have to be considered. Other than these there are no important in- ternational oblems which the prism- dent will be called to consider upon his return to the White IIouse.

" LoIno., Sept. 5.--The Manilla corre- spondent of the Times telegraphing Sunday says: "Regular trains will begin to rnn on the Manila-Dagupan railway tomorrow.

Killed Hie Father, Limestone WILL GO TO THE PACIFIC Tho Oregon and the Iowa Will Swing Around the Horn. They May Cut Acroe to Dewey--Sugges- tion That Samoa May Be Visited, Ineomplet4e Battleships Will Be Quickly Finished, , AtHrN't'ON, ept. 6.--Confirmaon as ita at tle navy department today cment that the battle- will shortly sail for thePacific station. Under the instructions given by the dlartment September 18th is given as the date by which a]l-.relmis: to vssels named must be completed, and it is proposed that they shall then im- mediately start on their journey around the Horn to the Pacific slope. Com- mander R. B. Bradford, chief of the bureau of equipment, who has charge of matters relating to the supplying of coal for naval ships, has collected a number of colliers at Ilampton Roads, which carry about 17,000 tons of coal. Not all of these will be sent, but a sufficient number will accompany the vessels in order that they may have a plentiful supply of fuel while en route to their new station. The action of the department in sending colliers along with the battleships is due to the fact that neutrality obligations of South American States will prevent them from giving coal to either American or Spanish ships so long as peace does not exist between the two nations. An im- portaut advantage in connection with the dispatch of colliers with the battle- ships" which has not escaped the atten- tion of the officials, lies in the fact that it will be oossible for the vessels, as soou as they reach Pacific waters, to proceed to Samoa or the Philippines should conditions exist demanding a reinforcement of the squadron at Ma- nila. The detachment of the Oregon and Iowa will weaken the North At- lantic fleet to a considerable extent, but it would not he long, should the nee(s-" sity exist, before their places could be filled by the battleships Kearsage and Kentucky. These ships, which are building at Newport News, Va., could be rushed to comoletiou within a few months in case of emergency, All of the armor of these ships is fit- ted to them, and the completion of their 13-inch gun mounts. It is ex- pected that even proceeding along the lines now being followed, the vessels will be ready for service some time duriug the coming winter. Should there be any trouble with Germany, therefore, regarding either Samoa or the Philippines, the American fleet in the Atlantic will be able to protect the American coast, bnt at the present time there is nothing in the Pacific to proteet the Pacific slope. Besides, Rear Admiral Dewey's forces at Manila is in- ferior to the German Asiatic squadron, and it is because of his desire to he pre- pared for emergencies and bi' such preparation prevent precipitate action on the part of any foreign gernment hat he recently requested the assign- ment of a battleship and an armored cruiser to his command. Of course, it would be impossible for the department to send any additional vessels to Rear Admiral Dewey until peace is formally declared, but the ad- ministration is doing the next best tiring by its action in dispatching the t Iowa and Oregon to the Pacific slope. ] From New York to the Straits Of Magellan, through which they will 1 have to go to reach the Pacific'ocean, ] the vessels will cover about 7,000 mile& 1 From Punta Arenas, on the Straits of San Francisco. the distance is slightly more than 6.000 miles; to Apia, Samoa, 5,000 miles, and to Manila about 9.000 mikes. Department officials assert that the destination of the ships is San Francisco, but should an emergency exist at eittmr Samoa or Manila they will undoubtedly receive instructions to divert their course. That the vessels may be in constant touch with the department, their cx)ln- manders will be given instructions to stop at ports en rout. In view of the attaehment of the two battleships to the Pacific station, and to the further fact that Samoa. which may prove a source of trouble to this govern- ment, is within the boundaries of that statics, a great deal of interest exists in naval circles as to the officer who will bc selected to succeed Rear Ad- miral Miller. Rear Admiral Miller will be retired in November, aud the depart ment' wilt detach him within the next month and place him on waiting orders. It, can be stated positively that Rear Admiral Schley W.lll not succeed Rear Admiral Miller. Neither will Com- modore Watson, commanding the East- ern squadron. That officer is slated to command the Mare Island navy yard. Thcprobabilitiespoint to the selec- tion of Rear Admiral Howison, now commandant of the Boston Admiral ltowison is familiar with the Pacific coast, commanded the Oregon there ago.
