The Old Dominion steamship Manhattan, which left this city for West Point, Va., at 4 o'clock last Tues day afternoon with thirty-five passengers, collided with the schooner Agnes Manning from Baltimore for New York, and went to the bottom. At least fifteen lives are supposed to have been lost. The first in formation of the disaster was given in the Associated Press dispatch from New York. At the company.s office the information re ceived pointed to the fact that in all prob ability over twenty persons have been lost. The vessel's crew numbered thirty-two. She also carried three steerage passengers. The names of only a few of the crew are known by the Old Dominion people. The manager of the company said that .ho vessels on his line exchange crows at the end of each trip, and it was impossible to state which of the employes of the com pany were on board the Manhattan. The Manhattan was valued at $150,000. She carried a very small cargo only 160,000 tons of general merchandise. There was no insurance on the steamer. The Man hattan was a wooden vessel, schooner rigired. The fact that the schooner with which the vessel collided has arrived in Philadelphia comparatively safe aud makes no report of loss of life or sinking of the old vessel, suggests a fear that most of the Manhattan's crew have been drowned. Besides the captain of the schooner reports that the commander of the steamer re fused to give the name of his vessel when signalled to do so by the captain of the Manning. Fenwick Island, where the colli son occurred, is on the Delaware coast and the dividing line between Delaware and Maryland. It is twenty miles south of Cape llenlopen. This is second vessel lost by the Old Dominion company in less than a month's time. On the iiSth of Oc tober last the steamer Cleopatra wni sunk off the Delaware capes by colliding with the steamboat Crystal. No lives Mere lost then. A DOZEN AT NEW LONDON.

New York, Nov. 22. The Post's finan cial article says: In the afternoon the re port that some kind of an alliance had been made between the Rock Island and the Atchison was confirmed, but was gen erally conceded that in view of the fact that the Atchison has a line of its own from Atchison to Chicago and which is a parallel competitor with the Rock Island line from Chicago to Leavenworth, It could not be any such compact as was made between the Union Pacific and the Northwestern, " and in all probability amounts to only giving the Rock Island the privilege of running through trains from Chicago to the Pacific coast.

The now bank, which has taken the char ter of the old establishment is familiar to New York financial people and its capital has mainly been subscribed there. Mr. Maurice Guiraud, residert vice president of the bank, through whose in strumentality the transfer to the new syndicate was effected, was seen at the bank building yesterday afternoon. He was then in consultation with the other diiectors. On being questioned by the correspondent, he said that the family of Mr. Inglesias denied his having committed suicide, and even that he was dead. They maintained that he was in a state of coma. Mr. Guiraud said that a judge with two notaries and the government representa tive was at that moment counting the se curities and cash in the safes of the bank, and that as soon as tho investigation was completed he would communicate the re sult.

MURDERER TURNER ON TRIAL. ARCADIA, Mo., Nov. 22. The lawyers in the Turner case, on trial at Ironton today, had a rough time of it. Judge Dinning, representing Turner, wheu the state's lawyers would csrner a witness, would in variably obiect and sail into Moses Walker, conducting the cross-examination, who would come back at him. Seemingly considerable feeling was de veloped. "When couit opened at S o'clock the state announced the close of its case. Thereupon Mr. Edgar, for Turner, made a very forcible presentation of the facts he proposed to prove, which were in the nature of a plea of self-defense. Defendant's testimony was then begun. Several witnesses said that A. J. Sumpter, who yesterday swore he saw Turner do the killing, was several miles awav. Four or live witnesses testified to coutradic torv statements as to the killing made by Mary Sumpter, widow of one ot the mm del ed men, and also that another state's witness, Copeland, had made con flicting statements. The defence also showed that both tho men killed had made threats against Turner's life. Hon. "Pou" Ciocker was put on the stand to testify about whether a person standing wheie it was s.iid defendant stood could seo a facing of the door, while ho had said he could not see a man where Asher wan, though directly in front of it and outside. He admittedho had been figuring ex tensively in the case in Turner's in terest, even before the arrest, and had kept a secret appointment with him when a fugitive from justice. The defense will close tomorrow. The foundation for impeaching several of the defendant's witnesses is laid. The evidence will not close before tomorrow night aud afterwards it will take a full day to argue the case.

It is believed here that Governor elect Campbell, Senator Sherman and Ben Butterworth are pushing this prose cution of Wood. Attorney IL R.

At tho Cronin trial today Mrs. Paulina Hortelo, the woman who created a sensation in her testimony for the prosecution by telling how she saw a man whose description tallied with that of Dr. Cronin enter the Carlson cottage on the night of the murder, was recalled for further cross-examination. Her testimony contained nothing new. Other important testimony was taken. Then the court took a recess until 3 o'clock to take the deposition of Lynch, distiller, who is ill. It is believed that Lynch's testimony will practically finish the list of witnesses for the prosecution. There will not certainly be more than one or two more. Budenbender, the witness from Ho boken, N. J., who yesterday testified that it was not a white horse took Dr. Cronin away on May 4, is under arrest. After court adjourned this afternoon, Officer Lindville, with his prisoner, was at the corner of Clark and Michigan streets, going to the state's attorney's office when Mr. Qnalley, one of the counsel for the de fense and Mr. Forrest's clerk, endeavored to take the prisoner away. A crowd soon collected but the prisoner was safely landed in the state's attorney's office. As he was ascending the steps on the west side of the criminal court building Mr. Qualley shouted to Budenbender that he would bo taken care of and to keep his mouth shut. The entire afternoon session of tne Cronin trial was devoted to tho matter of the arrest of Burueubenaer on a forth with suphceua. State's Attorney Loug necker and Mr. lorrest had - several lively tilts, the latter claiming that it had been agreed that the witness should not be placed under arrest and thatevery one con nected with the arrest should be committ ed for contempt of court. After hearing the evidence of Officer Leadenvjlle and one or two other witnesses the court decided that the matter was not one of contempt of court, but expressed the opinion that it was an outrage on personal liberty of Budenbender to take him on a mere sub poena as if he were a prisoner. The court then adjourned for the day.

ONE IN CALIFORNIA OF ESPECIAL INTEREST, ANOTHER JN NEVADA. People livtas In the Bed of u Old lake la the Concilia Valley, CaL Tbeir Chiei Industry Is Gatberiag Salt Curious Hab its and Custom of the Indians.

TJiia statement one often hears in Califor nia, especially ia the soothern portion, and it is somewhat pmrfigg to-the "'tenderfoot." It contains, however, the elements of truth, as almost every one wl comes into southern California through San Diego cuoaty passes below tho occau leveL The Southern Pacific railroad engineers found, whea building tba road, that In East San Diego county there was a remarkable depression, evidontly the dry bed of an an cient lake. This i3 known as the San Felipe sink, and presents a singular appearance, calling to mind tho famous Humboldt sinli further north. The San Felipe sink has a other name the Concilia valley called from the fact that its surface is covered with Bhells, showing conclusively that it has been the bed of a lako that at least had a dense molluscan population soma timo in the past, but how long ago it would bo difficult to say Tin: CAuroiKiA cuiuosrrv. The spot was first noticed by Surgeca Wid ney, of the United States army, many years ago. He observed the shore line and camo to the conclusion that in the distant past a large body of Water stood there. When the sur veyors ran their lines across tho depression they found that it was one of the most re markable places on the continent a cavity near what is now the town of Salton 2GS feet below the surface of the Pacific. This sink, or old lade bed, is 130 miles long by 80 miles wide, and the point of greatest depth is 860 feet below the ocean leveL The region is one of great interest. In tho sum mer it is so hot that the thermometers, ac cording to a native, are made on a telescopic plan, and 103 degs. is normal in tho shade. Still, sunstroke is never known in the sink, owing, probably, to the low relative hu midity. In andering through this remarkable place there aro many things to attract tho attention. On its northern side ora some fine date palms that have been growing hero for ages, at least beyond the memory of the oldest inhabitant. They range from sixty to eighty feet in height, and present a grand and picturesque appearance against the mountains. Tho trees bear dates of commercial value, tho bunches weighing from 75 to 125 pounds. Tho trees can be seen by the passengers on the train as it passes the town of Indio, and one wonders how long they have watched over tho dismal shores, and if the lake was a lako in reality in their day. That the lako was salt is shown by tho enormous deposits ot this mineral. It is es pecially noticeable at tho town of Salton, where for many miles the pedestrian travels on a perfect crust of salt, ranging from a few inches to several feet in thickness. The principal business follow ed here is tho collection of salt A number of largo mills collect and grind it, and several tons are shipped every week to various parts of the country. In some parts of the sink artesian wells have been developed, and what was once a desert is now rich in greens, and vari ous tropical and semi-tropical fruits and flowers aro raised. The tourist should stop at the town of Indio and make this the central point from which investigations can be made, and he will be well repaid. THE INDIAN' INHABITANTS. The native inhabitants of this curious re gion are a tribe of about 400 Cohuilla Indians, who have apparently strayed out here from the Cohuilla valley. Those examined by the writer near tho valley were as a rule a worth less set, wkh little or no ambition beyond ob taining their living from the government, and no little sympathy has been wasted upon them, though it is true that they have been cheated aud had lands stolen from them. Dr. Stephen Bowers, in an interesting paper read before the Ventura Count- Natural Histori cal society, gives some new ideas regarding them. He considers them lineal descendants of the old Aztecs. Their religion includes sun and fire worship at tho present day, and they believe in the transmigration of souls. Many of their ideas resemble those of tho Buddhists.
