AVashiniiton, August 12. When the
work on the Memphis ctitoni-house began,
Schneider of St. louis liad the contract for
furnishing the stone. Conu'resi at iu late
session cliiingeil tin: cliarncti'r ot the stone
to Tennessee marble. The treasury depart
ment relet the contract to N hneuler, as lie
had beoun on the iirit contract. When
Casey Young, member of congress front
Memphis, returned to his home from the
session of congress, he got tip a meeting and
w.'iit a protest to the treasury department
against tin: fulfillment of .Schneider's con
tract, alleging that Tennessee men should
nave a chance at lurnisiung me marine.
Sherman ordered a suspension of the work.
advertised for proposals and to-dav they
were opened. Thev arc all less than the
contract made with Schneider. As that was
known to the public Schneider protest',
and bid without waving his protest. While

'i liili'il UUhl Secretary SllenlLlil lilwl Su
pervising Architect Hill return, it is known
that a brother-in-law of Cucy Young is one

THE RF.F0I1M CRI'SADE.
The removal of Ihirliug, superintendent
of the Chicago custom -house, was but the
beginning of the reform crusade, of which
Wiilium Henry Smith, collector of customs
at Chicago, is tin) leading crusader. The
fight has now set in to have Supervising
Architect Hill removed, and emissaries
from Chicago are hereon that business. They
were Lilsy to-. lay trying to gather certain
evidence showing Hill's complicity in cor
rupt transactions in several cities where pub
lie buildings lire being erected. Hill is at
present in Sun Francisco. Hill's friends
sny th-' fight on him hits become
a per-dial matter with William Henry
Smith and one cf political advantage, with
ex-CoiigivsMiian C. 1!. Fanvell of Chicago,
who, while not much of a reformer, has
been working with Smith in this ci.se.
Hurling, the superintendent who was re
moved, was not friendly to Earwell's design
of being returned to congress, while Mc
Di.nald, the new superintendent, had in
Farwell his principal supporter for the
D'.ace. William Ilcnrv Smith, when he
originally made the charges sigainst the
work on the building, ch.ivged Hill with
being implicated. Assistant Secretary
French examined the charges and replied
quite sharply to Mr. Smith on this scon? as
ilid Mr. Hii'l, and the hitter's friends say
that this is the cause fur the present en
deavor to secure Hill's removal.
COLD IIY MAIL.
The treasury department proposes to try
the experiment of shipping coin by mail in
order to save the c ist of transportation, and
will send seven millions in "old from Sun
! Fi-.iii.'isco to New York In four pcilii-1 j.'V
ages, which is t lie heaviest package that can
bu carried by mail. Thi will make about
one thousand dollars to Ihu package. The
whole quantity will weigh nlaiut fourteen
tons and require two cars to transport it.

hen.' irxt September will not be exception
ally elaborate. The Chinese ambassador
will be received by the president and cabi
net in the same manner that other foreign
ambassadors are received. The president

Cincinnati. O., Aug. 12. A strange ac
cident occurred to-day on the Springfield,
Jackson and Pomeroy railroad near Bain
bridge. The train which arrives at Bain
bridge at noou remains thirty minutes for
dinner. To-day tlm engine was left stand
ingon the track as usual while the engineer
and fireman went to a house about a hun
dred yards distant to get their meals. They
had been gone but a short time when a man
named Albert Pepper pulled the pin con
necting the engine with the train, climbed
into the cab and pulled the throttle wide
open. The engine shot down the track like
an arrow until it reached a curve about a
mile distant where it jumped the track and
rolled over on lis side a complete, wreck.
Pepper was Instantly killed. What his mo
tive was for the strange deed is a mystery.
He had at oiie time been a wcll-tn-do farm
er, but ho had squandered his means by
dissipation. Home of the citizens think he
chose that as a method of committing sui
cide; others that it was a half-crazy and
wholly drunken freak.

Winston, engineer, (if the ferry -steamer John.
Overton, stated that as the Colorado was
Hissing down, nlxiut 10 o'clock Saturday-
morning, she was signaled by tho Maude,
whereupon she rounded to and received the

upon this information the Isiard ordered
Chief Athyof the police force to arrest tho

Your reporter has just interviewed Capt.

chargtj entirely without foundation, and
says that the boats met in the river to trans

and no passengers were transferred.
From Grenada the wires were burdened all
this morning with dispatchesof the most sen- -national
character. More physicians ami
nurses were wanted by the city authorities,
ami the various benevolent ladies of that
place sent pleading dispatches for assistance
of the same character. The crowd around
tho telegraph olllce and the reading and
repitition of dispatches received by tlm
public and private individuals served t
work up our people into a condition ot ex
citement amounting nearly to a panic, the

the real condition in Memphis.
Besides tho meeting of tho Ixiard of
health to-day on the condition of affairs at
Grenada, there was an impromptu consulta
tion ol all the prominent physicians of tho
city, at which your reporter was present.
A liberal exchange of opinions took place,
particularly as regards the diseasu in this
city. The unanimous sentiment was that
no yellow fever cases had appeared in Mem
phis except the two which were landed by
steamers on the Arkansas shore and after
wards came over to this side of the river in

A dispatch received by a citizen from a
relative in Grenada gives the following very
plausible cause of the sudden outbreak of
the fearful malady in that place: The main
sewer which leads entirely thiough that
town to the river caved in a few days ago.
In order to repair the damage it was neces
sary to uncover the SeWcr for a long dis
tance, aud an examination proved that it
was filled with carcasses of dead dogs, cats
and rats. The sun ixiuring its heated rays
on these remains li 1 1 I the atmosphere with
stench and disease and within the past week
not less than seventy of the citizens of
Grenada have been attacked with the
