A Stubborn Conteet oo the Nubian Desert
The Khalifa' Force are Fat to
Flight and Leave 1S.OOO Dead on

hold Captured.
Omdurmun, Opposite Khartoum, on
the Nile, Nubia, Sept. 2. By came)
post to Nazri. The sirdar, Gen. Sir
Herbert Kitchener, with the Khalifa's
black standard, captured during the
battle, entered Omdurman, the capital
of Mahdism,' Friday afternoon, at the
head of the Anglo-Egyptian column,
after completely routing the dervishes
and dealing a death blow to the mahdi.
Our losses were 500, while thousands
of dervishes were killed or wounded.
Thursday night the Anglo-Egyptian
army encamped at Agaiza, eight miles
from Omdurman. The dervishes were
three miles distant. At dawn Friday
our cavalry, patrolling toward Omdur
man, discovered the enemy advancing
to the attack in battle array, chanting
war songs. Their front consisted of
infantry and cavalry, stretched out for
three or four miles. Countless banners
fluttered over their masses and the
copper and bruss drums resounded
through the ranks of the savage war
riors, who advanced unwaveringly.
At 7:20 a. ni. the enemy crowded the
ridges above the camp and advanced
steadily in enveloping formation. At
7:40 our artillery opened fire, which
was answered by the dervish riflemen.
Their attack developed on our left and
they swept down the hillside with the
design of crushing our flank. But the
withering fire maintained for 15 min
ntes by all our line frustrated the at
tempt; and the dervishes balked,
swept toward our center, upon which
they concentrated a fierce attack. A
large force of horsemen, trying to face
a continuous hail of bullets from the
Cameron Highlanders, the Lincoln
shire regiment and the Soudanese, was
literally swept away, leading to the
withdrawal of the entire body, whose
dead strewed the field.
The bravery of the dervishes can
hardly be overestimated. Those who
carried the flags struggled to within
a few hundred yards of our fighting
line, while the mounted emirs abso
lutely threw their lives away in bold
When the dervishes withdrew be
hind the ridge in front of their camp,
the whole force marched toward Om
durman. As our troops surmounted
the crest adjoining the Nile the
Soudanese on our right came in con
tact with the enemy, who had reform
ed under cover of a rocky eminence
and had massed beneath the black
standard of the Khalifa in order to
make a supreme effort to retrieve the
fortunes of the day. A mass 15,000
strong bore down on the Soudanese.
Gen. Kitchener swung around the
center and left of the Soudanese and
seized the rocky eminence and the
Egyptians, hitherto m reserve, joined
the firing line in ten minutes and
before the dervishes could drive their
attack home. The flower of the
Khalifa's army was caught in a de
pression and within a zone of wither
ing cross fire from three brigades, with
the attendant artillery. The Mahdists
strove heroically to make headway,
but every rush was stopped, while
their main body was literally mown
down by a deadly cross fire. Defiantly
the dervishes planted their standards
and died beside them. Their masses
gradually melted beneath the leaden
hail. Finally they broke and fled, Ieav
ing the field white with corpses.
At 11:15 the sirdar ordered an ad
ranee and our whole force drove the
scattered remnant of foe into the
desert, our cavalry cutting off their
retreat to Omdurman.
Among the chief incidents of the
battle was a brilliant charge by the
Twenty-first Lancers. Galloping down
on a detachment of the dervishes they
found the dervishes massed behind and
were forced to charge home against
appalling odds. The lancers hacked
through the mass, rallied and kept the
dervish horde at bay. Lieut. Grenfell
nephew of Gen. Sir Francis Grenfell,
was killed, four other officers were
wounded, 21 men were killed and 20
The heroic bravery of the dervishes
evoked universal admiration. Time
after time their dispersed and broken
forces reformed and hurled themselves
upon the Anglo-Egyptians, their emirs
conspicuously leading and spurning
death. Even when wounded and in
death agonies, they raised themselves
to fire a last shot.
Among the wounded is Col. Rhodes,
the correspondent of the London
Times and a brother of Cecil Khoder
London, Sept. 5. The war office
has received the following dispatch
from Gmi. Kitchener, dated Saturday
evening: "The remnant of the Khal
ifa's force has surrendered and I have
now a very large number of prisoners
on my hands. Our cavalry and gun
boats are still pursuing the Khalifa
and his chiefs, who, with only about
140 fighting men, are apparently mak

forces says:

A Delaware & Hadion Train CraBhen Into
and Demoliiihei a Trolley Car at Co
hort, N. V. A Frightful Scene of
Horror Ten Fatally Injured.
Cohoes, N. Y., Sept. 6. An appalling
disaster occurred in this city last
night. Shortly before 8 o'clock a trol
ley of the Troy City Railroad Co. was
struck by an express train on the
Delaware & Hudson railroad at a
crossing at the west end of the Hud
son river bridge which connects this
city with Lansingburg, and its load of
human freight was hurled into the air.
Eighteen of the 35 passengers are dead
and 10 of the remainder will die. The
cars entering the city from Lansing
burg were crowded with passengers
returning from a Labor day picnic at
Renssalaer park, a pleasure resort
near Troy. Car No. 192 of the Troy
City railroad was the victim of the
disaster. It came over the bridge with
a merry party of people fresh from the
enjoyment of the day.
Four tracks of the Delaware & Hud
son road, which runs north and south
at this point, cross the two tracks of
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 pass that
The tracks of the street line run
at a grade from the bridge to the point
where the disaster took place.
The motor car was struck 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 ear was upon
the tracks before the train loomed
in sight and no power on earth could
have saved it. The motorman evident
ly 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
into the lighter vehicle. The effect was
horrible. The motor car parted in two,
both sections being hurled into the air
in splinters. The mass of humanity
on the car was torn and mangled.
Those in the front of the car met with
the worst fate. Every man in that
section of the car was killed.
The scene was horrible. Bodies were
hurled into the air and their headless
and limbless trunks were found in
some cases 50 feet from the crossing,
The pilot of the engine was smashed
and amid its wreckage were the maim
ed corpses of two women. The passen
gers on the train suffered no injury in
addition to a violent shock.
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 all.
The corpses were placed in boxes
and taken to a neighboring mill shed.
Many of them were unrecognizable.
The crash was frightful in its results.
Headless women with gay summer
dresses bathed in their own and the
blood of others; limbs without trunks
or any means of identifying to whom
they belonged; women's and men's
heads with crushed and distorted fea
tures; bodies crushed and flattened
these sights constituted a spectacle
most horrible to behold.
The train on the Delaware & Hud
son road immediately after the acci
dent went to Troy. The engineer
stated that he did not see the car until
he was upon it. He tried to prevent
his train from striking the car, but
his efforts were fruitless.
LargMt Crop on Record.
New York, Sept. 6. The wheat crop
of 1898 is not quite up to promise, ac
lording to the report of the American
Agriculturist. This says that in a few
states the promise of wheat was not
fulfilled in actual grain by a large
margin, while in a number of states
the rate of yield ' was even greater
than indicated on July 1. But with
full allowance for all disappointment,
the fact remains that the crop this
year is the largest on record. The
reported rate of yield in winter wheat

Cincinnati, Sept. 6. After the re
cent rains there is no longer appre
hension of prostrations from heat dur
ing the national encampment of the
G. A. R. The railways are bringing
in excursionists from every direction
and the local posts are kept busy in
escorting the visitors to their quarters.
Although Camp Sherman was not ded
icated till Monday, it was partially oc
cupied by veterans Sunday night. The
reports of the railways indicate over
260,000 tickets sold. Reports indicate
a greater influx the next two days
than was ever known before at these
encampments. The festivities of the
week opened when the naval veterans
formed at 6 a. m. to escort Rear Ad
miral Kelley from the depot.
When the visiting naval veterans
were escorted to Horticultural hall in
the exposition building they rebelled
against the arrangements. They ac-
knoweldged that the cots and every
thing were better than usual on such
occasions, but they wanted quarters
in a boat and nowhere else. They have
had boats at other places and claim
they were promised a boat here. Com
modore William E. Atkins, of this city,
who is in charge of the local naval ar
rangements, has had no opposition for
rear admiral of the association to suc
ceed Kelley and at noon he announced
his withdrawal from the contest, al
though he had more than enough en
dorsements to elect. The indignation
centered against Atkins and he was
forced out of the race, although he is
not responsible for the situation.
Commander-in-Chief Gobin and staff
visited Camp Sherman in the after
noon when the camp was formally
turned over to him. This camp has a
capacity of over 15,000 in its tents and
ample provisions for meals. The offi
cial salute was fired upon the arrival
of the commander-in-chief, after
which the bands rendered concerts.
Among the numerous camps in the
suburbs is one at Garfield park, occu
pied by the James Lyle post, of
Allegheny, Pa., which has its own
band and is accompanied by 135 Sons
of Veterans and others from western
Pennsylvania. The two cannons guard
mg the entrance to Camp Garfield
were made of bursted shells gathered
from the battlefield of Gettysburg.
Charles F. Sheriff, commander of
the ex-prisoners of war, and his staff,
