With the complications of the legislative organization and its patronage disposed of the Hanna men last night began a most desperate fight on the senatorship. The Hanna ,-nen deny that they will form a coalition with Brice for a gold Democrat for senator rather than be beaten by i free silver Republican, or that they will do anything else but fight it out, if it takes all winter. Base Their Hopes on the People. "A'hilo they are not able to give a list long enough to elect they claim that Hanna is stronger than Boxwell and the other regular Republican candidates In the organization oi: the legislature, and that the opposition has not er.ough votes to elect a senator. The Hanna men concede that they have lost the power of the organization of both branches, can name no chairman, place no members on desirable committees, or dispose of any other state patronage; but they have carried the war into the home counties of the "bolting" Republican members, and expect the necessary changes before next Wednesday night, at the demand of the "bolters' " Constituents. Anti-IIunna Hen Well Organized. The superior organization of the opposition was shown in the combine yes- :erday securing nearly all of the doubt- !ul votes. The opposition has had an army of workers here for a week, with detachments that kept close to each one of the doubtful Republicans. The opposition marched to the state house i line like troops, and worked for weeks like soldiers under orders. They had been doing picket duty, skirmishing and walking guard lines, and they lad their triumphal march in the most unusual manner because of the confidence in their organization. The wives and daughters of the managers of "the combine" secured choice seats in advance in the legislative halls, awaiting the arrival of the anti-Hanna hosts, and the most elaborate floral designs were on hand for the occasion. FEELING SEEMS TO BE PERSONAL. Membeis Begin Getting In "Elielr Work Against Hannaby Legislation. The fueling against Hanna was shown even in the routine legislative proceedings. Representative Bramley, of Cleveland, introduced a bill to repeal the fifty-year franchise law for street railways, in which Senator Hanna Is largely interested. Bramley is a contractor who has large contracts under the municipal administration of Mayor McKIsson, and other members from Cleveland who are supporting Hanna are said to have measures ready for changesi and investigations at Cleveland that would affect Bramley. Representative' Jones, of Stark county, a Republieari who is opposing Hanna, has been .frequently'reminded 'that the county convention that nominated him adopted strong- resolutions instructing him to support Hanna. Jones was chairman of the committee on resolutions in that county convention, and declared himself then for HaJina. Yesterday Jones offered a very strong Cuban resolution that is in conflict with Hanna's vote on the Cuban quistion in the senate. Representative Scott, of Fulton county, who voted with the "combine" yesterday and is opposing' Hanna's re-election, \vas= also instructed by resolutions at the county convention that nominated him. Some of Scott's constituents yesterday had the Fulton county convention's resolutions published here in-the local papers. Both sides spent last night in close conferences. All the chansesi that are being sought are anticipated from the representatives. It is cont-eded that Senator Burke, one of the Republican senators from Cleveland, who has not yet appeared, will be here to vote against Hanna. Hi? attorney yesterday presented his certiflcjite of election to Lieutenant Governor Jor.es just before the senate convened. K Hanna is "no stronger in the hoiise than the Boxwell ticket was yesterday, when Boxwell received 53 votes and Mason 56 for speaker, then Hanna will have only 70 votes on joint ballot, and 73 are necessary to elect. Notwithstanding the results! on the organization of both houses both sides seem equally confident in claiming the senatorship on joint ballot. PROTESTS IN FATOB O*' HAXXA. Republican clubs nave cancelled their engagement of Quarters here for the inauguration exercises next Monday, and many protests are being received at the stats house. Colonel T. W. Moore. or Marietta, another appointee of Governor Bushnell. yesterday resigned as trustee of the state insane asylum ac Athena. Joseph G. Gest. of Washington Court House, a Republican editor, also tendered Ills resignation as deputy oil Inspector, on account of the governor's attitude on the senatorial contest. The resignations of Judge Nash, Colonel lloore a.rid Gest were all promptly accepted. The governor received a tele- grnun from Warren, reading: "Trumbull county and Western Reserve will ndt stand your trickery to the Republican party." This ivas signed by Geo. Predmore, Joseph Smith, George Cauf- ficid, Mungo Brownlee and Harry Gilbert. Another frora Youngstown told the governor that "All your Republican friends here regret very much that yci.u should seem to be forming an al- Ha>ice vrith Democrats with the purpose ofj defeating the expressed wishes of 3ifr party." Still another from Elyrla says that "It is the unanimous sentiment of the Republicans of Lorain county that. Mark Hanna is entitled to receive the vote of sv£ry member of the legislature elected upbn tlie Republican ticket." This Is signed by Judge Nye. of the common pl4as court; Editor Johnson, of The Reporter, and twenty other prominent Sepublicansy The Republican glee club, of) Columbus, which gained a reputation in the last presidential campaign ancl sang' for Bushnell and Jones in the last state campaign, last night Forces the Government to Call in 526,000,000 of Silver Certificates.

Washington, Jan. 4.— One of the most dangerous counterfeits ever discovered has made its appearance. John Cramer, of tho sub-treasury at Philadelphia, has brought to the secret service five $100 counterfeit silver certificates, head of President Monroe. Their general appearance is excellent. After close examination the officials of the treasury cash room were undecided as to their genuineness notes had been and only after the adopted unani soaked in hot water, when the two pieces forming the front and back: of the note caine apart, -w^ere they convinced of the fraud. On examination of the day's treasury cash another of Jhe spurious notes was discovered. "The notes brought over by Cramer had been turned into the sub- treasury by twoleadiag banks and the NO 56.

Both factions were busy last r.ight, the' anti-Hanna mefl looking' after the Republican malcontents and the Hanna men figuring how to continue the campaign. The latter issued an address in wh'fch they took the ground that the vot!te for speaker was not a criterion by which to judge the vote for senator, and that the Jssues on the two cjues- tioiis were not the same, expressing the belief that the Republicans would come up jj solid or nearly so for the caucus nominee for senator. Sfc-Senator 33riee in response to inquiries telegraphed Democratic members that the future and the integrity of the party would be best served by thei| Democrats voting for a Democrat for' senator. Protest Sent from Cleveland. Cleveland, Jan. 4.—The president and secretary of the Tippecanoe club, the big central Republican organization of this city, yesterday sent the following telegram to Senator Burke and Representatives Mason and Bramley, the three "bolting" Republicans from this couaity: "The officers of the Tippecanoe clutj! express for themselves and the Republicans generally throughout the cityl disapproval at your action in not starjiiiiig by the instructions of the county and ™" members of "Let Spaniards who are opponent* of conservative principles confess the injustice of their censures when they depicted the mercantile spirit of thosa false humanitarians, burning with indignation respecting our excesses in Cuba.

Two members of the committee of the club to arrange for a special train to Governor Bushneli's inauguration, have resigned and the trip will be abandoned, it is said. SUES FOR SOME ILLINOIS LAND. Over 100 Occupants In Several Counties Called Upon to Get Off the Earth. Quincy, Ills., Jan. 4.—Suit has been commenced by Edwin M. Harrrison and other eastern, claimants to recover possession of thousands of acres- of farm lands in Adams, Hancock, Warren, Knox, Henderson, Mercer, Peoria and other counties in this state. It appears that Richard Smith lived in. Raleigh, N. C., fifty years ago. He died in 1853, eaving a will by which a life estate went to his wife, Penelope Smith, and daughter, Mary A. Smith, and after their deaths a vast amount of property in, the Illinois military tract reverted to the daughter's children, if any, or his natural heirs. jj Soon after Smith's death his wife.ind daughter deeded all the Illinois property to Silas T. Green for a comparatively small consideration. Green has since quit-claimed to many parties,' and different tracts have changed hands many times. Smith's wife died long ago; the daughter died later in the Philadelphia insane asylum, and now the natural heirs have combined to dispossess over 100 present occupants of large farms on the ground that their title is but the life estate of Mrs. Penelope Smith and her daughter. The property is/now worth $2,000,0000. Bryart at Lincoln Tfcis Evening. Lincoln, 'JJeb., Jan: V—W. J. Bryan will arrive in Lincoln at 6 o'clock this evening, two days later than originally scheduled. Unless the present pro- gramme is chp.ngod he will almost step from the train to the banquet hall, the Bryan Traveling Men's club having arranged a dinner in his honor. It is believed that he will utilize this occasion to partially declare his future intentions, more especially the rumor connecting him with the Democratic nomination for congress in this district next tall. _ Princeton Boys Can Hare Their Be«r. Princeton. K. J., Jan. 4. — Professor Wes:t, of Princeton university, said yesterday that the report that the Princeton Inn grill room was to be closed permanently was'not correct. He said the report grew out of the fact that the grill room had been closed for a week- This was not an unusual occurrence. The grill room was closed because ot the Christmas vacation and would reopen when the students came back, Coinag* far the Tew; 1897. I Washington, Jan. 4.—The m&thly statement issuecl by the director if tie mint shows the total coinage it the United States noints during December to have been $5,1141,481. as follows: Gold, $3,«i6,«42; sever; *L9TT.1«7; inlbor coins, S13!,CT1. The silver dollars coined amounted to-JL«M.m—. been wired a description of the notes j with instructions to be on the lookout jj for persons attempted to pass them. jj Description of the Spurious Note. I Inquiries have also been sent to all i __ie^ leading cities as to whether any of the notes have appeared other than | In- Philadelphia and Washington, and the best men in the service will be put on the case. Following is a description of -the note as furnished by the secret service: The note is of the series of 1S91, check letter D, face place 1; Tinman, register; Morgan, treasurer; portrait of James* Monroe. All numbers so far seen begin with 345. The most marked differences between this note and the genuine, however, are found in the seal and the numbering, the former being a shade lighter than in the genuine and the latter slightly different In formation. Especially is this true of the 3 and 4. In the figure 3 the lower loop does not extend up as far toward the center of the figure as in the genuine, and in the figure four the space toatweenthe base and the center cross line is narrower than in the genuine. A Very Dangerous Production. One of the principal points of difference, too, is that the new counterfeit is 1-16 of an inch or less shorter than the'genuine. The chief engraver at the bureau of engraving and printing announces the counterfeit a very dangerous production. It is engraved on steel and printed on two pieces of paper pasted together after colored silk fibre had been distributed between them. The work, he said, was that of a very careful and excellent engraver, and while there was no appreciable difference between the genuine and thecoun- terfeit note to the casual observer, under a glass many slight differences were discerned. This, however, was extremely difficult of description, Will Call in All the Certificate!. In view of the dangerous character of the counterfeit Secretary Gage has decided to stop Issuing and to call in all $100 silver certificates, of which there are about $26,000,000 outstanding. These will be exchanged for silver certificates of smaller denominations, and the plates destroyed. As soon as new- plates can be engraved a new series will be issued. Assistant treasurers at all of the sub-treasury cities will be requested to send to the treasury in Washington all $100 silver certificates in their possession, and; to request all banks, trust companies and other mon- ied institutions .to do the same. Secretary Gage desired the statement made that in his judgment if was unsafe for business men or others to accept silver certificates of this denomination, and In case any were now on hand they should sent to the banks for transmission to Washington. AXOTHEtt SORT OF FRAUD. Wealthy Connecticut Man the Victim of* Gold Mine Swindle. New Britain, Conn., Jan. 4.—Theron H. Camp, a wealthy retired manufacturer of this city, has come to the con elusion that he ha;; been swindled out of $15.000 through investments in alleged gold mine stocks, and three other well-to-do New Britain residents, one said to be a retired minister, have been mulcted to the extent of $1,500 each. The knowledge of (Camp's transactions became public through service of papers on Camp attaching property to the extent of $10,000 in suits brought by A, C. Fletcher and Wesley Supple, of Philadelphia, to recover on two notes of Camp amounting to $7,500. The man who sold the stock: gave the name ot. Francis C. Grable. He opened an office in this city in July, and at once called upon Camp and finally induced him to subscribe for some stock. As an additional incentive Camp waa told that his note for three months would be received for the amount, and if at the end of that time the dividends had not increased sufficiently the notes could be renewed. Camp purchased VI,500 of stock and gave one note for $6,000 and another-lor $1,500. Each was for three months, and made payable to a Xew York finty of brokers. Grable Boon afterward closed his office in. thla city. Just before the not<ts became due, how- .ever, he returned to New Britain and sought out Camp, remarking that if. ihe returns hid net been sufficient he would prefer to have him renew the notes, which Camp consented to and gave additional notes for.

I» >'ot Decided a* to Whether th« Child Minded HJ» Mother. Ashland, Wis>., Jan. 4.—Driving for twenty-six, miles over the rough road* of the forest wilderness, Erick Solbersr brought his desperately wounded wife to Ashland Sunday night. Solberg, who ives near Marengo Falls, arrived home Sunday afternoon to find that his S- year-old son had shot his mother. emptying the contents of a shotgun into her right side from a distance ot six feet.
