COMER COKE The SohemeThat Is Disturbing Pittsburgers' Minds. rhe CoUe BiihIiicnm to lie Made n Another of Vitnlicrbllt'fl IntorcatliiK Fact llio 'trade. FiTTsncna, Pa., Aiig. 8'. The discovery bns been tiuulc in this city that a syndicate, whoso capital is practically unlimited, has been formed for the purpose of obtaining control of all t ho coke-producing ovens in the fainoiiH Connollsvilie regions. This syndicate is composed of H. C. Frlck, Thos. Carnegie, Judge Thomas Mellon, Dr. David llostottor and D. A. Stewart, of this city, W. K. Vandcrbilt, of New York, and other eastern gentlemen identified with the railroad interests. The object of theso gentlemen in wishing to obtain control of the coke industry is twofold. Sovoral of them are already members of one or more of the coke-producing companies, and has long been of the opinion that prices, which have been sadly demoralized, can not be improved as long as there is competition, and tho only way to get rid of this is to have tho whole output controlled by one company Btrong onougli to keep out intruders, and establish an arbitrary rate for tho product. Tho othor reason for tho formation of the syndicato is that something of tho kind is necessary in order to furnish business for Vandorbilt's road from this city to tho coke regions, called the Pittsburg, McKcesport & which is ultimately intendod to connect with the now lino across tho southern portion of the State. The Pittsburg, McKeesport & Youghioghony has been built at a largo cost, and will be opened for business by the 16th of August. It runs along tho south sidcof tho Monongahela and Youghioghony rivors, and for a distance of miles taps only ono coke plant. The business derived from this would bo of small importance. It is the intention of tho syndicate to bridge tho Yuughiogheny river at Broodford and build a branch up the valloy to Mount Pleasant. By this means tho whole product of that portion of the region, not less than Boveu hundred cars a day, will bo scoured to tho Yauderbilt lines and tho Pennsylvania and Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Companies which have traversed the same torritory will suiTcr in liko proportions. A charter authorizing tho construction of this branch has already been socured and options on at least one-half tho ovens of tho region havo been obtained by tho syndicato. Anong theso arc tho twelvo . hundred ovens owned by A. A. Hutchinson & Co., for which it is known $800,000 is nsked. Collector of the Port of Pittsburg J. C. Dravo lias also given an option on hi" plant which is nearly hs oxtensive us that ownod by Hutchinson & Co. II. C. Krick, who is a member of tho syndicate, already controls nearly two thousand ovens, and it is believed that within sixty days tho syndicate will be in full possession of this great industry. m i THE NATION'S TREASURES.

The Stato of Virginia Asking 87.12,-800 From tho General Government. Washington, Aug. 3. A domand bos been presented to the Socrotary of the Treasury, on behalf of tho State of Virginia, that Lj deposit with tho Troasuror of Virginia $732,800, being tho fourth tho amount directed to bedoposited by tho thlrteoutu and fourteenth seotlons of tho act of June 23. 1830, entitled " An act to regulate the deposits of publio money." By theso sections it wns directed that the surplus rcvctiuo that should bo in tho treasury on January 1, 1837, after reserving $5,000,000 which surplus was ascertained to be $37,408,850, should be deposttod with tho Slates, then twenty-eight in number, according to representation, in four quarterly installments during tho year 1837, and to remain with such States until necessarily called for by tho Secretary to meet appropriations by Congress. Tho first threo deposits wero so deposited, but payment of the lourlh was subsequently postponod until January 1, 1839. Tlioro not being at tho latter date a sufficient sum in tho Treasury not subjoct to chargos which had been before Imposod by Congress, the Sccrotary, Levi Woodbury, failed to make the final deposit, stating, howovcr, Hint ho should lcel bound to mako it whenever thcro should thereafter be a sufficient sum in the Treasury which could bo bo npplied. As thero has never since that time ' until within tho present decade been a sufficient sum in the United Statos Treasury not subject toother ohanges, that could be bo used, such deposit has never been made with tho States. In 1841 tho act of June 23, 183(5, was ropealed, expresssly reserving, howovor, tho thirteenth and fourteenth sections, and it is contended that they are now in force. Thii claim involves the question of deposits with other States, which in all amounts to over S9.000.000. The attorneys for the Stato of Virginia olalm to have documents and other evidence showing it to be the duty of the Sec rotary of tho Treasury to make this deposit on demand of a Stato, and will argue (he question before him soon after his return. The attorneys are proceeding under an net of tho Virginia Legislature, authorizing eor tracts to be mado for the co lection ol -this and other claims. CROOK'S CAMPAIGN. Severn Crltielftm y tho Ieoplo of Arizona nnd Xcw .lloxlco. Dallas, Tex., Aug. 3. Mr. Honry F. Underwood, just back from tho scene of Crook's exploits, spcnkB disparagingly of the Gon.'s oxploits. Mr. Underwood is a prominent citizen, a retired wholenlo merchant, and a capitalist ot Da im. lie stands as high in publio estimation for veracity as any man in the city. Ha Bald to tho correspondent tlmt ho fully confirms every word stated by Senator Gibbs, nnd that it voices (lie statements nnd feelings of the citizens of Now Mexico and Arizona in regard to tho Indian polioy of the general government and tho redout oxploits of Gen. Crook. Mr. Underwood says that ho saw tho Indians captured by Crook, nnd that tlioy wore nothing but old nfen, women and children. Tho Indians claimed that they hud inudo a treaty wiihGeii. Crook by which all of them, including the hostile bucks, s. ill in the mountains of Mexico, were to bo allowed to return into the reservation; that when tho treaty was made tho squaws and old bucks started signal fires, nnd thirty warriors caiuo in ami mado terms with Crook, nnd then dopnrted for the mouutnins of .Mexico to bring in the remaining host lies, and to surrender little Charley McComas. Up to dato neither tho thirty warriors, tho hostilos in tho mountains, nor Charley .McComas havo been seen or heard from. Tho people of the border denounco tho Indian policy of tho Government, and assert that tho discipline on the rosorvation would bo better and tho punishment of tho Indians more speedy and effective if tho Toxas rangor polioy was adopted. They say that General Crook had no fit material to fight tho Indians with, and discovered such to bo the fact when ho came up with them, and showed good generalship in getting out of the mountains, as ho had only a fow soldiers, and his renegade Indian Bcouts showed they could not be ielicd on to fight tho HEAVY IMMIGRATION. A German Arrives nt Castle Unrdon, Nkw York, Aug. 3. Among the five hundred and ninety-six immigrants who arrived at this port on tho stonmer Westphalia, from Hamburg, and woro landed at Castlo Garden, was Carl Thcilor, a jolly Teuton, whoso avordupols was estimated at about four hundred pounds.

RAVAGE IPRfiSY if i The Dread Disease Raging in Northwestern States, Xorwejtlnns, Chinamen nnd Indians Niiflerliiir the Ureal Leprous Center of the Country A Terrlblo AilUctlon Feared Alarm Anionic the l'cople. Milwaukee. Wis., Atitr. 3. It has just been mnde publio that leprosy prevails to nn alarming extent among the Norwegians in the northwestern portions of Wisconsin. As far as has been ascertained the disease has confined its ravages to tho Norwegian inhabitants.but Its rapid spread bns been viewed with much alarm. Crossing tho Mississippi river It has fastened Its fnngs on tho population iu eastern Minnesota, until now Wisconsin and Minhesoto in the districts indicated constitute ono of the four great head-centers in tho United Stales from which the contagion is radiating in the Western Hemisphere. Wisconsin, l)uisiana, South Carolina. Mexico, Bermuda, California and tho Sandwich Islands ure considered tho most atl'ected districts. It is professed ny medical men that unless measures are taken soon this Slate will be afliicted terribly by tho encroachmotits of tho disease A prominent physician of Milwaukee said yesterday: "As has been well known for souio time, thero oxists among the Nor wcgian population of this State a lnrger number of cases of the diseaso which !b now the scourge of tho people of the Sandwich Islands, and which was looked upon by the people of Biblical times with much dread and merited abhorrence. In searching tho records of tho State Board of Health I can not find that effort lias as yet been mado to stop its spread or limit its introduction. Tho diseaso in question is eminently contagious, and is not only carried by actual contact of a healthy porson with a leper, but may bo acquired from hotel towels and like things. At present there aro four loprous centers in tho United Stntes, namely Eastern .Minnesota, nnd Northwestern Wisconsin among tho Norwegians, California atuung tho, Chinese, Louisiana and among the Indians of the Northwest. That the diseaso is spreading among us, nnd that, too, with comparative rapidity, can not for a moment be doubted, and it would seem that the time had como for local and national action to provont its further introduction and further spread. To any one who will take tho trouble to investigate the matter, the results will not only ho of interest,, but will be alarming, as tho matter is one which is of interest not only to tho medical profession but to the world at largo. I think that the attention of tho public should bo drawn to it. I liopo that proper action nuy bo taken through public legislation to blot out this most disgusting disease, from this State at and perhaps, eventually, from the whole natiutt." DYING ALIVE. The Condition in Whle't n Man round IIIm I Nnw YouK,Aiig. 3. Mr John Guion his , wife and two young children, let their home in the Vundcrbilt flats, No. h07 Lex-1 iugton avenue, to go to a country resort in Now Jersey.

Although not un invalid in the sense of keeping to her bed, the lady had not been in her usual hoalth for some time and was uudor medical treatment. From tho decomposed condition of the body it is supposed that sho must have been suddenly taken sick and diod on the very day sho had planned to go to Staten Island. 9 STAND AND DELIVER. The Exploit or a SIitNMachtinettM Asent of the Itond. Boston, Aug. 8. Mr. John Morgan, with his wife and child, was riding from Gloucester to Rockport, and when near tho Rookport line, a man emorged from tho bushes with a rovolvor in his hand and ordered Mr. M or ran to throw his money into the road. At this Mr. Morgan stood up in tho carriage and put his hand on his hip as if to draw a weapon. Tho follow, with an oath, exclaimed: "That ia your game, is it?" and disoharged his revolver at Morgan, tho ball going torough his coat nnd making a slight iiosh wound. Tho highwayman bad his head and face covered with a handkorohief to conceal his identity. JM. Morgan sprang from the carriage and tho fellow took to his heels and disappeared. Mr. Morgan reported at tho police station at Gloucester, and three officers were started to hunt the man up, They : found, on the Rockport road, in tho vioinity of the shooting, a man who bad tho appearance of having been running. When arrested ho gave his name as Charles W. Torrey, and ids residence as Gloucester. Ho tolls sovcral conflicting stories, and denies that he had a revolver. The officers went to his rosidenoa and were informed by his wife that ho took his revolver with him whon he left tho house. Terroy was in the Police Court for tho crime, and had his caso, continued, being held in S5.000.J WHAT KILLED HIM. Tho Doctors Amtlynla of Captain Webb's Jltirtn. Niaoaiia Falls, Aug. 3. The examination of Captain Webb's remains was made by Drs. Edward 8mlth, of Lowiston; M. S. Lang, of Suspension Bridge, and C. N. Palmer, of Lookport. They found the body in an active stato of decomposition, but no bones were broken and none of the injuries except the wound threo and inches long in the cranium were sufficient to causo death. Tho cranium wound they decided was produced aftor death. All the blood presented a distinctly red color, showing that it was not deoxidized by asphyxia in drowning, but that death ensued prior to that condition. None of the characteristic symptoms of death kby drowning were prosont, nor was there any local injury sufficient to cause death. It was therefore concluded that death rosulted from tho shook from tho reactionary force of tho water in the whirlpool rapidc coming in with tho submerged body with such force as to instantly destroy the respiratory power, and, in fact, all vital notion, by direct pressure from the forco of contact. Tho shock was of sufficient intensity as to paralyze tho nerve centres, partially tho muscular tissues, and foroatal death by drowning. The conclusion was, therefore, reached that no living body can, or over will, pass through tho rapids" alive. The 'river bed at the whirlpool rapids is much narrowed and suddenly assumes great precipitancy. The water strikes the unyielding banks with groat violence, and by reaction meets with such resistance as to form in the ceptro a mountainous ridge of encroaching waters from twenty to thirty feot in height. Into this Captain Webb was submerged aftor passing tho first breaker, and instantly subjected to the pressure indicated upon his body. This caused his death." RAILROAD GHOST. A QUEEH Story About the Xcw York Central. Schenectady, N. Y. Aug. 3. For somo timo past it has been reported that a peculiar and mystorious view ocours on dark nights, on tho Central railroad, just west of tho river bridge. Shortly beforo the arrival of tho fast mail train from the west, a red and a white light arc seen to move slowly eastward as if carried by human hands. After coming a short distant to the river bridge, both lights ascend and suddenly disappear. Engineers on westward-bound trains, while taking a water supply, have noticed the lights and waited for them to disappear bolure moving on. Night watchmen nnd chronically-sober men assert tuat this apparition cm bo frequently seen, but tho causo is a mystery, as tho effect is produced apparently without human agency. A SAVAGE.

Thero is a sad story connoctod with tho drowning of tho two little boys, Josie Patton and Jobnnio White, Thursday. Tho boys' jnothcrs are sisters, and thero is a third sister, who has also a son. All threo children wero born in tho same month, and grow up together Bince birth. Tlioy boro such a wondorful resemblance to ono another that they wore regarded almost in tho light of triplets, and were never soparatod. The strango part of tho affair is that on tho night bofore tho boys wore drowned Mr. and Mrs. Patton wero awakened by strange sounds in the room where the two littlo boys slept. Mrs. Patton, who went to invostigato tho mnttcr, sa'w her boy motioning with his arms as though swimming, and at tho same timo crying, "Help! help l" Sho nwakened him from his dream of doatli, but ho would go to sleep immediately and rouow his imaginary struggle with tho waves. Becoming alarmed, she called hor husband into tho room, and he attempted to pacify the boy, but with no more success than that of tho mother.

THE OLD STORY. Orent Loss ol I.lle In a Iliiriilnsllnild. In. New Youk, Aug. 3. A firo has destroyed the building, number 12 Eliznboth place, Brooklyn.

Tho flames first mndo thoir appcaranco in tho basement, and werosproad witli frightful rapidity from tho liquors which wero stored in the collars, the ground flpor being occupied by a wholesale liquor firm. By tho time tho fire readied tho spot the fire wns beyond control and tho halls and rooms so tilled with smoke that tho tiromon wore unnblo to enter for sovoral hours. Many tenants were rescued from ho first three floors, all of them moro or loss injured, some of them bo badly that tlioy can not recover. Undoubtedly many on those floors porished, whilo tho loss of life on tho fourth and fifth floors is known to be terrible. Tho scroaras and appeals for help that camo from this part of tho building were hoartronding to hear, and nearly drove tho crowd in tho streets frantic. It is thought all who woro on theso two floors wero suflbcated. The neighborhood is wild with oxoitemont, and in the confusion nothing definito can be ascertained as to tho names and numbors of thoso who aro missing.
