KANSAS CITY. MO.. Sept. 5.?The Star this atternoon prints the following froth its special war correspondent, Mr. W. .1. Whelpley. touching on the Alger Miles controversy: "The statement made seml-oftleinlly from Washington that Major General Miles was not in command of the San? tiago expedition up to the time it left Tampa, is not borne out by the otliclal records of the War Department. These j records prove that General Miles not only conducted the preliminaries with General Garcia, hut was then recog? nized by the War Department as gen? eral commanding even General Shutt? er's army. "The details of General Shatter's ac? tual equipment and me:hod of move? ment were naturally left to Shatter, but a general plan was devised by Gen? eral .Miles and directions issued to General Shatter by him which, after leaving Tampa, the latter entirely ig? nored. General Shafter left Tampa with the fall knowledge that he was subject to orders from General Miles, ami up to that time the War Depart? ment recognized this statement of af? fairs which is provided for in the fed? eral statutes organizing the army of the United Stales."

Express Train Crashes Into a Crowded Trolley Car. EIGHTEEN PERSONS DEAD At Le??t Teu others Fatally lujured. Bead lew. huiI I.litihleiwi Trunk* Burled Into tlie Air anil Scattered for a Suucc of fifty Feet. (By Telegraph.) COHOES. N. Y.. Sept. r>.?An appall ing disaster occurred in this city short? ly, before s ./clock tonight. A trolley ear of the Troy City Railroad Com? pany was struck by the night boat spe? cial, of the Delaware & Hudson Ball road, at a crossing at the west end of the Hudson river bridge, which con? nects this city with Lanslnburgh. Eighteen of the thirty-five passengers are dead and at least ten of tha ra- :t mainder will die. The cars entering the city from Lan singburgh were crowded with passen? gers returning from a Labor Day picnic at Rensslaer Bark, a pleasure resort near Troy. Car No. 192 of the Troy City Railroad was the victim of the disaster. It came over the bridge about Trlir. o'clock, laden with a merry party ? of people. The crossing where the ac? cident occurred is at a grade. Four tracks of the Delaware and Hudson road, which runs north and south at this point, cross the two tracks ..f the trolley road. It was the hour when the night boat special, a train which runs south and connects with the New York City boat at Albany, was due to puss that point. The ira. ks of the street line run at a grade from the 'bridge to the point where the disaster occurred. In con sequen.>f this fact and of the fre? quent passage or trains, it has been the - rule lor each motor car conductor ty?s& stop bis car and go forward to observe the railroad tracks and signal his car to proceed if no trains were In sight. It cannot be ascertained whether that rule was complied with on this occas? ion, for all events prior to the crash are forgotten by those who were in? volved. The motor ear was struck directly In the center by the engine of the traln,v which was going at a high speed. The car was upon the tracks before the train loomed in sight and no power on earth could have saved it. The mo turtnan evidently saw the train ap? proaching as be reached the track and opened his- controller, but 111 valD. With a crash that was heard for - blocks the engine crashed into the lighter vehicle. The motor car parted in two. boih sections being hurled into the air in splinters. The mass .ft hu? manity, for the car was crowded to overflowing, was torn and mangled. Those In the front of the car met with the worst fate. The force of the col? lision was there experienced to the greater degree and every human being in that section of the car was killed. Bodies were hurled Into the air and.*:, their headless and limbless 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 addition to a violent shock. The majority of the passengers of the trolley car were young people. They, included many women. The injured were taken to the city hospital and to the Continental Knit? ting Mill, the former not having suffi? cient ambulance service to care for them all. The dea.l were placed in boxes and taken to a neighboring mill shed. Many were unrecognizable. The crush was frightful in its results. Headless women with gay summer dresses bath? ed In their own and the blood of others; limbs without trunks or any means cf identifying to whom they belonged; women's and men's heads with crushed and distorted features; bodies crush? ed and flattened. The train of the Delaware and Hud? son road,' immediately after the acci? dent proceeded to Troy. The engineer slated that he did not see the car until lie was upon it. He tried to prevent bis train from striking the car, but hia efforts were fruitless. His train was going at a very high rate of speed at the time. He was some minutes late and was trying to make tip lost time. In consequence of the'caution taken by the trolley road to ascertain it the tracks were clear at this crossing, the engineers of trains have always feit safe in running by at a high rate cf speed. The engineer says that the first he knew that the car was coming waa when it hove in sight at the corner of the street at which the crossing is sit? uated. He was but a short distance from the car at the time. He thinks that the motnrman, when he saw the train was upon him, tried to get beyond the danger line. The grade of this crossing and the speed at which his car was going also made it impossible for him to stop before he reached the Delaware and Hudson tracks. It was the front end of his car that caugnt the crash, and he was killed outright. Up to 1 o'clock eight bodies had been identified, all residents of Cohoej4 except one. TWO MEN KILLED.
