The Epidemic of Burglary Still Continues

ALL THE SEWS FROM XEAE-BY TOWKB
rsrrCIAL TXLXGBJUt TO TBI DISPATCH.:
CoyxEixsviiXE, April 4. The Courier,
iu its coke trade review, will say to-morrow:
The coke trade continues to 'ebb. Produc
tion, which has been slowly bux steadily de
creasing during March, took a decided
plunge in rounding out the month, and
showed a total considerably smaller than
that of any previous -week during the past
six months. Upon the whole the trade can
not be said to be encouraging. The pig
iron markets begin to show signs of weak
ness again and a further decline is feared.
Such a decline will force many furnaces
temporarily out of blast, and materially
curtail the demand for coke, compel the
shutting down of a considerable number of
o ens and pretty effectually destroy all hopes of
a revival In the coke trade before fall. Prices
are no loncer being maintained, and there is a
lively competition among the larger operators.
The result is tbat some of the works are being
run on less than hair time, and a large number
of ovens will have to be blown out soon unless
there Is an early revival in trade. The opera
tions of the 77 coke plants in the Connellsville
region for the last week in March shows 11,457
of the completed ovens in blast and 3.809 Idle.
The record for the previous week showed
11,611 active and 1,650 idle ovens. The active
ovens, which have been averaging the dajs
per week for some time past dropped back to
4, and the estimated production fell from
100,192 tons to 91,057 tons, or about 9 per cent.
Priip haro KiftlfH rlnnm about 10 cents below
the rate heretofore ruling and quotations are

MURDERED FOR BIOXEY.
X Man With an Uneasy Conscience Revenls
n Horrible Crime.
Newabk, April 4. The conduct of two men
excited the suspicions of Officer Henry Iauf
ter last night, and he took them in charge.
Thev were both foreigners, and unable to
soeak a word of English. The officer, who is a
German, addressed them in that language, and
from one. who was also a German, he learned
tnat their names were John Schmidt and
William Michalowsky. The latter is a Bo
hemian, and appeared as though he was haunt
ed by the thought of some terrible crime.
When questioned be partiaBy admitted that he
and bis companion had been guilty of a crime,
bnt seemed fearful of the consequences if he
confessed. The officer told him that he would
have no peace of mind until he made known
the trouble, if a wrong had been done.
After considerable hesitancy the man
Schmidt unbosomed himself, and told the po
liceman that he and his companion had two
montns ago been hired to murder a woman in
the city of Is ew York, and for doing the job
had received the sum of 50. She was a widow
by the name of Lavin, and resided on Fcrty
first street, but what number they conld not
give. The deed had been accomplished, he
said, by the administration of poison fur
nished by the person employing them to do the
work. The name of this person was not given.
Bo impressed was the officer with the truthful
ness of the story that be detained the supposed
murderers here, and has telegraphed to the
authorities in New York to learn the facts.
The men mil be held here until word has been
BURGLARS AT BEAVER.
They Make a Bold Attempt on the Palace
of Justice Itself.
Beaver. April 4. Burglars last night at
tempted to blow open the safe in the Treas
urer's office at the Court House. The doors
leading into tbe-outer and inner offices were
forced open with a Jimmy. A hole was bored
in the top of the safe in the outer office and an
attempt made to blow it open. The back was
somen hat sprung, but no entrance was effected.
The safe is used as a receptacle for books,
papers, etc, and for money dnring the day,
The handle and combination of the door of the
vault were broken off with a sledge, powder
inserted and an attempt made to blow ft open.
The attempt failed, and the project was
abandoned for some reason unknown. They
also forced an entrance into the Sheriff's and
Commissioners' offices and into that of the
Clerk of Courts, and thence they invaded the
office nf the District Attorney. A drawer in
the office of the Clerk of Courts was broken
onen and So taken. John Rising, clerk m the
office of the Register and Recorder, was work
ing at his desk in the inner room last night.
About 11 o'clock he heard footsteps at inter
vals ana noncea persons novering aDont tne
door of the other room, which was dark. He
paid no attention to them, however, supposing
that it was the janitor or some of the officers
of the court.

While Williams has been suspected from the
start, the District Attorney says he believes

whom he boaided, the night of the outrages,
