Portland Kx press, westbound, running
between Portland and New York via

morning nt Mllford. Conn., about ten

sisted of twelve cars and the last four
were two sleepers, a combination
smoker nnd a day coach. They left th
track nnd bumped alonn the ties for
several hundred feet before the train

No one was seriously hurt, but the
passengers got a shaking up and many
of them had to turn out scantily clad
and stood shivering In the cold until
they were transferred to another train
at the Mllford station nnd sent on to
New York.
A few minutes after the derailment a
westbound freight ripped the slde of
the derailed cars.

Illsllkr Sending? American Money
to I'mr HnBllah Tasra.
An objection to the accounting by thn
American executors under the will of
Consuelo, the Dowager Duchess of Man
chester, In which they reported that
they had sent 197,000 from the Ameri
can estate to London to pay the Kng
lliii death tax, was tiled in the Surro
gate's office yesterday by the Counteas
Zlchy of Austria, who. Is a cousin of the
late Dowager Duchess.
The will left to the Countess Zlchy
an annuity of 16,000. She objects to
sending any of the American estate to
England to pay Kngllsh taxes on the
ground that the British authorities can
tax only such part of the estate as Is In
that country and cannot Impose a tax
so large that It Is necessary to use the
American property In paying It. Sur
rogate Fowler will conduct a hearing
on the protest.
The American executors got permis
sion from the Surrogate to send the
$97,000 abroad because the Kngllsh
estate was Insufficient to pay the tax
and the authorities were threatening to
sell part of the Jewels of the Duchess
and to seize some of her real estate.
The executors reported that the esta'to
now amounts to 12,237,913.

London, Nov 18. Although the Tcha
taldja forts where N'azlm Pasha faces th
Bulgara ere so near Constantinople,
although under favorable circumstance
it. would be possible to hear the thunders
of cannon from Kllios on tho Bosporus,
yet there comes no definite word of events
on the lines to tho north of the Sultan'
city. What the Bulgars, usually bo swift
in attack, are doing now that they aro
face- to face witli the shattered Turkisli
army lighting in the last ditch, whelhor
thejr aro awaiting the arrival of heavy ar
tillery, whether the floods and cholera
make them halt, these things are kept
from the world tiy the Turkish censors at
tho front.
So often has come the rumor by way of
Constantinople that there is a heavy and
important engagement at the Tchataldja
lines that the correspondents, impatient
at being cooped up in Constantinople,
left the capital to-day in an attempt to
get to tho front and learn the real condi
tion of affairs in spite of the fact that tha
Ottoman Government has forbidden than,
to leave the city and that they run th
risk of being caught and turned back.
One eye witness of events on the flghtlnjc
line reports that the Turks are in aplandid
condition, eager to be at the Bulgara
again and aure of vlotory this time. Yet
another tella how cholera la mowing down
the Turkish troop until their bodiea are
heaped together in ahallow trenche and
speaks of Nailra Paaha'a fighting men M
a "rabble" who will flee before the effective
Bulgar artillery Are.
Apparently Adrlanople la atlll holding

came across the cable every day laat week
Baying that its capture waa but a matter
of hours.
King Ferdinand of Bulgaria, who ha
been at Kirk Kiliaseh, captured by hi
men after a bloody fight, Is hurrying to

There are some military men who hold
to the belief that the Bulgara are avoiding
