Columbus, O.. Jan. 3.—There are indications here of serious trouble, at least of disorder, at the state house today. Since the eaucusses 'of Saturday night both the Hanna men and the opposition are claiming enough votes for the organization of the house. No trouble is feared in the senate chamber, as r it is believed that Senator Burke, one of the Republicans, will remain away and thus pei-mit the Democrats to elect the officers in that body. At the Republican house caucus Saturday night there were ten absentees, and Alexander Boxwell received only fifty-two votes for the nomination, while it requires fifty-five votes for election If all- the members are cresenir Under the law, after ten ballots are taken the candidate receiving the highest number of votes is declared elected, even'if It Is then not a majority over all. Where the Row May Come In. Secretary of State. Charles Kinney, *. strong Hanna man, will preside in the house till tliat body elects a speaker. In anticipation of his rulings there have been threats made. Kinney is said to have selected a strong force of temporary sergeants-at-arms, and to be ready for any emergency. The combine of Democrats 'and anti-Hanna Republicans claim that it' will elect Harry C. Mason, of Cleveland, an anti-Hanna Republican, speaker, and seat him. If Representative Mason should receive the requisite votes there \vill be no trouble about him qualifying and taking his seat, but there is apprehension of disorder previous to the ballot being taken, and possibly during the balloting and the counting of the vote. The opposition claims that it will have the forty-seven Democratic votes in the USP solid, and-nine Republican votes, or one more than enough to elect the Ma?ori ticket. Of Cou-sc There Are Bribery Charjres. There are three Democratic members who are opposed to fusion, or rather to voting- for Republicans for speaker and "other oflices. WiLh tho result depend-, in? on the change of one vote either way these ;hrec Democrats iir.^'-lho Republicans who did not enter the caucus are undergoing strong pressure. There have been irresponsible charges of bribery, but no evidences of It are discernible. Thi? Democratic senators caucussed Saturday and nominated Burke, - anti- Hanna Republican, for president pro tem. All the other nominees are Democrats. At the anti-Hanna house caucus the nominees were Mason, anti- Hanna Republican, for speaker: Griffifths. of Union, speaker pro tem. (He is claimed by the Hanna men). The anli-Hanna Republicans were given the clerk and the Democrats the sergeant-at-arms. The minor places are equally divided. XASH CUTS LOOSE FROM BUSHNELL. election of Nasii for chairmsin. That Is the cause of the present fight against Hana. It has involved all the old figrhts of foi-mer yeara, but these fights never included a combine with the Democrats till the present contest.

One Sequel of the HotFi^bt Being: Made AfrairiRt Mark Hann.a. Columbus, O., Jan. 3.—Judge George Nash, chairman of the Republican state executive committee, yesterday sent a letter to Governor Bushnell resigning his ooiiition as a trustee of the Ohio asylum (at Gallipolis) for epileptics, to which position Judge Nash had been appointed by Governor Bushnell." The letter is said to be very caustic, but Judge Nash will not give it out for publication till after it has; been received lay the governor. On being asked for the reasons Jor his action Judge Naah said: "On Friday, I arn Informed by a most reliable gentleman, Governor Bushnell said that the Republican state executive committeee in the recent campaign did not do a thing to assist him as a candidate. In justice to my associates on that committee, than whom a more loyal set of men to a party ticket and to a great cause were nuver banded together, as well as to myself, as the chairman, I could not do otherwise than resient the insult. '•Again, if Governor Bushnell really believes that I was disloyal to him as chairman he must be very uneasy as to whether I will properly perform my duties as an officer. I desired to relieve his rr.ind of this worry. I am also dis- xisied with the conduct of Governor Bushnell. Before the election, in public speeches:, he pretended that he desired Mr. Hanna's return to the United States senate. Since that time he has consorted with the enemies of the Republican party to defeat the will of the people. I look upon this as a square case of obtaining votes by false pretenses." Judge Nash, as chairman of tht siatf? committee, is taking an active interest in the election of Hanna, and claims that uhe last state convention at Toledo named Kanna for senator as well as nommated Bushnell for governor. At the last state convention in Toledo Governor Bushnell wanted (Charles L. Kurtz selected as chairman of the state executive committee, a position which Kurtz had held for the two previous campaigns. It is claimed that the head of the i!L3.te ticket by precedent has always named the state campaign chairman. In 1S86 Secretary of State Charles Xinney headed the state ticket and opposed Kurtz lor chain-man, but Bushnell secured the reappointment then of Ixurtz over the protest of KJn- ney.

Hennig, an employe -of the Oceanic Phosphate company. It was hoisted above, ttie coral rim by Hennig' and two other San Franciscans — Joseph F. Moore and Charles A..Johnson—by direction of the company that has for sever;il years been marketing the phosphates. The American claimants, will ask their government to protect their rights. Washington, Jan. 3. — All that is known at the Mexican legation regarding the pulling down of any flag OTJ Clipperton island is that vague rumors were alloat thai the British had taken possession of th'» island, and that with a view to asserting the sovereignty of Mexico over it a warship was sent there to maintain her claim. The department of state has nothing at all On the subject, but is not disturbed over the news. The la;v permits an American citizen to locate upon any guano island such as Clipperton solely for the purpose of taking oft the guano, but it must be affirmatively shown that 'he island is not part of the territory •~* another nation at the time of loca- iioin. and Mexico's title to Clipperton is 'Jjiiit'lJered good here. - — ,HEAD OF "GREATER NEW YORK. He Is Evidently a Man of the Fewest of Words on Occiislon. Nei\ York, Jan. 3.—Mayor Van "VVyck took possession of his office Saturday in the presence of a large crowd. Floral pieces were strewn in every direction; a-tiger in yellow and black immortelles, resting in a bed of roses, was one of the- most noticeable decorations. At 10 minutes to 12 o'clock VanWyck entered the office. He was greeted by Mayors Strong, Gleason . and "Wtirster. The four men chatted some time and the big crowd of office-holders and ex-offics holders made a circle around them. About one minute— before' 12 o'clock Mayor Strong made a brief speech of" about 200 words, chiefly congratulatory to the new mayor. But Van Wyck probably has the record for brevity in a reply of this sort. Said he: "The people have chosen me to be mayor. I received the office from them and to them I will answer."' Then after a great shaking of hands the cere- money was completed the administration of Mayor Strong was a .thing: of the past. . ,-j - • Dont Believe 'All Ton p«ad. London, Jan. 3.—^The ^ingenuity,, displayed in manufacturingJnews from 'the faj: east is remarkable. 'Five-sixths of the statements can be safely labeled guesswork. The British and Russian foreign offices are as dumb as oysters, and the German stream of conflicting communications in the semi-official press shows that they do not know over there on which foot they are standing. France is apparently in the- dark, white the mikado has dissolved the Japanese diet in order that opinions should not be expressed. Has Not Located Mr*. I,uetgerb. New Haven, Conn., Jan. 3.—John P. Schofleld, of Boston, who is in this city, pronounces untrue the statement that he had notified friends of Adolph. Luetgert. the Chicago sausage-maker, that if given $15,000 he would divulge the hiding place of Mrs. Louise Luetgert, the missing 'wife. Schofield has been interested in following up clues of the reported appearance of the woman and believes she is alive, but disclaims any knowledge of her whereabouts. Steamer Goes Down at Sea. Halifax, Jan. 3.—The steamer Gerona, from Portland, Me., bound to London with 400 horses and a general cargo, struck on Seal Inland at 4 o'clock Saturday moraine: during the thick weather, and shortly afterward sank. Her crew took to the boats and one officer and twenty-four men landed Saturday at 'Wood's Harbor, all safe. The other part of the crew, thirty-six men and toe captain, have since landed on Seal Island, all well. Arkansa* I* in with th« Flrft. Little Roclc, Ark..

New York, Jan. 3.—Six members of »ne family were killed by flames and smoke in a fire that occurred in the morning in Jersey City. The dead are: Adolph Reich, 42 years old, the father; Emma Reich, 42 years, mother; Tillie Reich, 22 years,; Ida Reich, 15 years;; Albert Reich, 14 years; Gustav Reich, S years. Several others were injured, and it may be that another member of the ill-fated family will die. He is the 19-year-old son, and his body is covered with burns.. John Con way, chief of the Jersey City fire department, was very badly burned. He fell through a burning floor and waa rescued with difficulty. Henry A. Reich, 17 years old, managed to make his escape from the house with bad burns on the neck, face and hands, but he i* not seriously injured. While They Slept Death 'Worked. Adolph Reich's home was at 317 Germania avenue, near the Hudson county boulevard, in the Hudson City district. He was a real estate agent and well-to-do, living in a pleasant house of threu stories. It is believed that the 3re broke out from a heater In the basement., and worked its way up to the third floor, where the sleeping apartments of the family were located. Henry Reich said it was late when the family retired, the evening having been spent in entertaining New Tear's callers. Early in the morning he was awakened by shouts. Running into the hall he saw the smoke and flames In the lower hall. His father was there, and they -managed to get out of the house in their night clothes. Tathcr Bushes Back to His Doom. Young Reich ran down the street and gave the alarm. 'When he returned his father was nowhere to be seen, but one of his brothers, Sigmund, was there badly burned. He was taken to aneigh- bor's house, where he said that some one had awakened, him and that he had jumped through the blinding smoke and flames down the staircase and out into the open air. Several engine companies responded promptly to. the alarm, and ten minutes later the fire was out. Then began ffe? s : ercrcJi o,f Uie?l;ouse.-3rh.e- rays from the firemen's lanterns disclosed three charred bodies against the wall at the foot of the stairs. They were those of Adolph Reich (the father, who had rushed back into the house to save his loved ones), his daughter Tillie and little Gustav. The father had fallen upon the daughter and his son was in his arms. They were burned almost beyond recognition. Died with Their Arms Entwined. In the, .basement of the house the searching party stumbled over the remains of Ida and Albert, two blackened corpses with arms entwined. Portions o:f the limbs had been entirely burned away .and the faces were horribly distorted. The mother was found in the dining room. She Was but slightly burned. Her face showed no look of pain. She undoubtedly died from suffocation. IWEXICAX JMINERS RESCUED. Flood Drives Them from Their Work— Four 1>»5> 'Without Food. City of Mexico, Jan. Z.— Various reports have been in circulation regarding a mine disaster at the mine of San Jose de Garcia at Guanajuato. At flrst it was reported that thirty-five miners had been drowned in the lower workings of the mine. Authentic but brief reports have just been received which show that the number, as stated, -were at work in the lower levels when they noticed that the water was beginning to come in slowly and they became alarmed. When the water began rushing- in in greater volume their alarm, was turned into consternation, and the men made a rush for the ladders. They stayed within reaching distance of a higher level, but could get no higher. When the time came for the shift to go to the surface arid ^t did not appear, the rumor spread that all the men. had been drowned. A relief force volunteered to go to the rescue, but it was deemed impossible to give aid and nothing was done more than to ascertain that there was undoubtedly a flood in the lower workings. Four days p.assed: naturally all hope was abandoned and the> families of the miners gave way to despair, and the news was given out that all the men had perished in the mine. Finally a relief party still working but without hope, reached the place where the miners had sought refuge and rescued them. The poor fellows were in, a bad state of exhaustion, having had co food during all the time they were imprisoned, and some nf them were so weak that they could hardly move. All were rescued, however, and brought to the surface .amid tmnultaous rejoicings amon^r fellow mine« and the families of the rescued men. Faod and liquor -were given them cautiously, and they have been restored to their usual strength with the exception of a few who were dore pros*rateil ^^ tt . e rest. Skarkey Wimte » Go ftt Bob Xotr.

Among the questions ..which will engage -«*rtir, attention is "thati of Hawalliif annex*- : tion. The plan of the supporter* minexation is-to take the question up 1m executive session on a resolution, of ratification, and to debate the treaty for a few davs In executive session, pursuing' this course lo.ng enough t» determine their strength and commit those who profess to be with them. If they find they have the necessary two-thirds to secure ratification they will press on to the end, but if they discover themselves to be deficient 1m , voting strength they will change their policy and take up, the question of annexation on Morgan's resolution to that end. There is no doubt that a majority of affirmative votes can be secured and -! that a resolution of this character can. passed ir a vote can be reached. The present indications are that the treaty. as such will fall of ratification by from two to six votes. The house will probably devote all its time this week to debate on the civil service law, and the talk will probably- run over into next week also, although no one believes the civil service appropriation will be defeated. MABRY, EMBE2ZLER, CAPTURED. eiirly AH. the Money H« Stolo »: t;ure«l with. Hiiu- Savannah, Ca., Jan. 3.—P. H. Mabry, '.gent of the Southern Express company t Brunswick, Ga., who embezzled more than $15,000 from the agency there last, Wednesday and escaped, was captured Saturday at about four miles out of Savannah. Mabry -was searched and 115,070.73 was found on him. The noney was taken charge of by the company. Mabry said he had spent nly $;.25. He came through the woodsi. rom Brunswick to Savannah, walking all the way, about 100 miles, being afraid to take any of the trains, as he vas well known. Mabry said his office had been short or siome time, and that knowing h« was about to be discovered this large .mount of money was too great a erapta.tion for him, no he took it and skipped. He will be taken to Bmn*- vick. Yest<;rdaj: morning Mabry was found ying in a pool of blood on the floor, is clothing soaked and his hands, and ace red with blood. He was uncon- cious and was at first thought to be dead. He had opened an artery In. his wrist with a penknife, but' will reaver.
