Columbus, O., Jan. 14.—Hanna. and the members of the legislature went home yesterday. All will return by Tuesday next. The leaders on both sides are still here preparing for another fight next week. The opposition to Eanua was defeated in his election, but it proposes to fight now against him being seated for the long term. His enemies say that they have not the time to interfere on the short term, but they will press the bribery charges, asi such charges were pressed on Henry B. Payne fourteen years ago, to the United States senate. Subpoenas hare been issued for Hanna, Dick, Hollenbeck,Boyee and others, to appear before the senate committee next Tuesday night; Libel suits have been brought against several Republican papers for damages in connection with the bribery charges, notably one by T. C. Campbell for ?100,000 against the Ohio State Journal. Wants the Bribery Inquiry Pushed. Among the managers for Hanna still here and to remain till the investigation is completed is. Hon. E. G.

He says those who were in that business are raising the cry against others, and that the investigation will show who isi guilty and who is being persecuted as well as slandered. While the senate committee of which Burke is chairman began its investigation yesterday, the house committee will not be appointed till next Tuesday. The Otis resolution was adopted in the house yesterday, but Speaker Mason wanted time for the selection of the five men to do the Investigation. Slason Preparing: lor a. Fall. As Speaker Mason is anticipating an attempt to oust him he is disposed to confer with the members before naming the house committee,. In the standing committees announced by Speaker Mason yesterday it was seen that he {rave the Republicans who voted for Hanna good places. But it is said that the latter will not accept the olive branch and a majority has signed a document to oust Mason and the other officers. Speaker Mason has never inir'-ed a moment out of his chair during the^ sessions of the past two weeks. As speaker pro tern Griffith is now with the Hanna members Mason knows that in his absence a resolution would be offered and adopted to reorganize the house. Reorganization May Raise a Row. As Mason will refuse to recognize any one offering- such a resolution there are those who expect violence in the house before the" proposed reorganization is effected. Mason was very arbitrary la his rulings yesterday and the Republican members are ready to resort to desperate efforts next week for reorganization. As the fusion Republican members from Cincinnati were assure.d of support on the Republican side for certain bills- for the reorganization of their city their support, with the exception of Otis, is counted on in displacing Mason. The Democratic side is depended on to support the Cincirmat bills in any event.

They include his colleagues in the senate, including Foraker, who wired: "I congratulate you not only upon your -election, but also upon your happy remarks to the gen- assembly;"' Some of these con- fusion, Consummated at St. I-ouls in Toss.

NATIONAL UNITED MINE WORKERS. No Business of Importance Except to Complete Klectlon of Officers.

Havana, Jan. 14.—About noon yesterday a crowd gathered in front of the offices of El Diario de la Marina shouting "Death to Djario," General Aroulas used the regular troops to restore order and to compel the dispersal .of the crowd, which kept up a continuous shouting on the streets near Central park. These people accuse El Diario.de la Marina of being responsible ,for all the attacks made upon army officers and Spanish residents in the island. They say that La Discussion and El Rcconcentrado received their cue from El Diario. A man selling El Diario was shot in the arm. All classes commend the authorities for avoiding unnecessary force or violence in the use of the soldiery and the police. Havana, Jan. 14.—There is no foundation whatever for the rumor that United States Consul General Fltzhugh Lee met with violence during the disturbances Wednesday night or yesterday. During the height of the uproar Wednesday evening he walked about freely in Central park and in front of the Hotel Inglaterra. Yesterday he attended to official business as usual. Last evening, when this dispatch was sent he was dining at the Hotel In- S'.aterra. DUr oin Legislative Koten.

Illinois Civil Service Xaw, Chicago, Jan. 14.—Chief Justice Fuller, of the United States supreme court, has issued a writ of error in the civil service ait recently passed upon by the Illinois supreme'court, and granted a super- sedeas.

Paity Lives IVhere God Reigns — »iv Yorker Replies to the Missourlnu—Ohio Senator a Baffler of Political BOSMW. Ho S»yii— Senators Continue t« Wax Eloquent Ov*r tlie Annexation of Hawaii. Washington, Jan.. 14.—The house yesterday completed the consideration oJ the agricultural appropriation bill in committee of the whole, and then adjourned upon the motion of those opposed to the printing of another edition of the famous "horse book."

One of the important amendments adopted provided for the inspection of horse meat for export purposes in the same way that the meat of cattle a.nd other animals is now Inspected. During: the debate some criticism of the proceedings in the senatorial election in Ohio from DeArmond called forth a. warm defense of Hanna from Mahany (Rep.) of New York, Something He Cannot Understand. When DeArmond got the floor he began his criticism by reading the telegram sent by Hanna to President MeKinley: "God reigns, and the Republican party stil! lives." The telegram, said he, was unique. That God reigraed there was no room to doubt; therefor* the latter clause of the telegram was the more wonderful. With cutting irony he proceeded to read and comment on some of the telegrams of congratulation sent to Hanna from this city, including those of President McKinley. Senator Haivley and others. Commenting; on the president's telegram lie asked how the return of Hanna could be beneficial to the country, save in an example to be avoided. He said in the course of his remarks that Hanna was the truest, best exponent and representative of modern Republicanism. 31 Hliany Replies 3o DeArmond, DeArmond's remarks brought Mahany to his feet. In a brief speech he replied to the remarks of the M!s- sourian. "In 1S92," said he, "the American people witnessed the spectacle of the Democratic parly meeting- in its national convention a.nd despite the unanimous protest of New York state nominating: for the presidency of the TTnUed._S£ai£2 a man repudiated by his own commonwealth. It was the bosses of the Democratic party who "perpetrated this outrage upon the rank and file of the Democratic masses." Then with denunciation of Cleveland the speaker declared that the bosses ha<J formed a -Wo'l to "Syndicate the presidency, when Hanna blocked their plans. The presidency at that time WB.S sure to go Republican, because "the conscience of the Democratic party had risen up and hurled down to oblivion Cleveland and Clevelandism." Cannon LikeR Treachery Rebuked. Cannon of Illinois expressed his gratification over the election of Hanna. It was a triumph of the majority arid of political honesty. He did not believe, tie said, that any gentleman on the other side could rise and place his hand on. his heart and honestly say that he was not glad treachery, had been rebufeed. ONLY "PBELIStrNARY REMARKS." Which Opens a LlrniUes* View of tho Debate on Annexation. Washington, Jan. 14.—The senate did not make great progress with the Hawaiian annexation treaty yesterday. Several speeches were delivered, but in every instance the speakers announced that their remarks-were merely prelim- nary to what \hej^ steuld say before the close of the debate>-.Th«rexecutive session opened with White on the floor, but Stewart interrupted and others.cut he California senator out of the discussion. Those who spoke were Stewart. Frye and Morgan. Stewart supported he treaty and was the first senator to discuss the question of sugar In connection with the subject. He said all he islands had reached their lirnlt In he production of sugar and for this eason the producers of beet sugar and :ane sug-ar need not be alarmed. He said there were many natives of lawaiian in California and that they vere well regarded there. White fnter- vere well regared there.
