O'CONNOR Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford'; | A Counterfeit Bill That I Misled A Keen Expert | WASHINGTON, Jan. 12. ? Alarm # seized the ollicers of the United States Treasury today upon the discovery ~ of a remarkable counterfeit flve-dol ^ lar silver certificate, the most danger ? ous imitation or American currency ? since the famous "Monroe head" one I hundred dollar bill was suppressed i ? in 1S9S. ? So nearly perfect is this spurious I note that ollicers of the cash room of J the Treasury declared it was genuine ? and unswervingly held to their belief I that it was a washed note. Herman ' Moran, assistant chief of the United ? States Secret Service, defected slight \ variations from the original, however. J and stamped it unqualifiedly as a ? counterfeit. In the case of the "Monroe head" bill the whole issue was withdrawn from circulation because of the I dangerous imitation. It will hardly j be practicable to resort to this pre | caution in connection with the new counterfeit because the five-dollar "In ! dian head" silver certificate is so gen " erally in circulation. The counter feit was discovered in New York City. Widespread warnings to the public were issued today. "The general ap pearance of this counterfeit," says the notice, "is calculated to deceive even careful handlers of money." Miniature rogues' galleries in hotel lobbies, railroad and steamship sta tions and other public places are pro posed by Major Richard Sylvester, chief of the Washington police, as a means of protecting inauaguration vis itors against thieves and confidence men next March. _ I Major Sylvester proposes to obtain - about 500 pictures of pickpockets and I other criminals known to be at large. These photographs will be reproduced i so that complete galleries may be maintained at many points wheer the ? public can study the features or' the culprits. The idea of a rogues' gal i lerv has not been tried before at in auguration time. Major-Gen. Leonard Wood, chief of - staff, named as chief marshal of the j,! inauguration parade, has begun corre F | spondense in regard to the participa t tion of the militia of the various t States. Gen. Wood laso plans to gath er in WnBhington Bevoral thousand troops from the various army posts, probably as far west aH Chicago, and south to Atlanta, as well as the en tiro cadet corps and midshipmen bat talion from their respective acade mies. Thomas Nelson Page today gave a luncheon in honor of his cousin, Bry an Lathrop, at the Metropolitan Club. The presence of Representative Un derwood and Chairman McCombs gave rise to a series of rumors that matters of deep political interest had been discussed. Mr. Page tonight said there was no political significance attached to the gathering. Mr. Lathrop, who is a Re publican, he said, has been spending a few days in the city, and he invited a few gentlmen to meet him. The other guests were Wayne MacVeagh and Wiliam Corcoran Eustis, Chair man of the Inaugural Committee. Chairman McCombs returned io New York this afternoon after a two day lay-off in this city, during which time he discussed politics and matters pertaining to Gov. Wilson's inaugura tion with Mr. Eustis and the members of the committee. It is expected that Thomas Nelson Page will be President Wilson's choice for ambassador to the Court of St. James'. Attorney-General George W. Wick ersham said recently of the sentence imposed at Indianapolis on the dyna mite conspirators: "The conviction of those fellows is one of the best things that the Depart ment of Justice has ever done. The laws of the land must be applied to all alike?to President Mellen of the New Haven, and President Chamber lain of the Grand Trunk, and Mr. j Smithers of the Board of Directors of the Grand Trunk and to Frank M. Ryan and his associates." Mr. Wickersham said the Depart ment of Justice would likely follow the usual course of turning the evi dence upon which the defendants in the dynamiting case were convicted | over to the State authorities. Thlsj means, he said, that the men convict ed in the Federal Court can be tried In the State Courts. I Kill Turks Like Mad Dogs | During A Bulgar Massacre N r VIENNA, Jan. 4.?An Austrian P woman living in Kavulia has written ? a letter dated Dec. 9. but only now J published in the .Montags Zeitung, in ? which she describes fearful atrocities ? by Bulgarian Komitajis upon the Tur ? ! kish inhabitants. Having described ? the arrival of the Komitadjis in Kav ? ala and the arrest of the Governor, ? she proceeds: ? "On the following day a man hunt, I Lj or more properly speaking, a Turk f hunt, began. People who had com ? mitted no other crime than that they I were Islamites, and these the best 1 j situated in the city, were taken pris : oners and executed without even a ; pretense of a trial in the most cruel I manner. "At midnight prisoners were awak ened, bound together while halt naked, in twos and threes, and then wounded in the abdomen, between the ribs and in other parts of the body, with bay onets. The murderers then reversed J their rifles and beat them to death ! with the butt ends of guns like mad 1 dogs. Age or rank was no reason for ' mercy. On the first night thirty-nine I were tortured to death, on the second fifteen, on the third eight and on the following night thirty, until 115 were killed in Kavala alone. "In a neighboring city the Turks de fended themselves and shot two sol diers. Thereupon their officer took out his watch and said: 'It is four o'clock; now you may do what you like to the Turks until four tomorrow.' That was enough for the soldiers. The brutal wretche3 murdered 1,200 Turks in twenty-four hours. "At Xanthie the people took refuge in the mosques, but the bloodhounds followed them there, cutting them down and hacking them to pieces. All this was done in the name of the cross and in honor of God. The drama was climaxed with the beheading of a rich Turk, whose head was then placed on top of a box and a pipe placed in his mouth. "When all the Turks were massa cred the soldiers turned their atten tion to the Jews, but naturally only to the rich Jews. They were carried away to Scherisaban and tortured for six days and then liberated on the payment of ransom of $55,000, but the manner of their liberation was al most more horrible than their fear of capture. At midnight the prison gates were sudenly opened and the cry of 'Forward!' was heard. Natur ally they believed their last hour had come, and they \Cere nearly fright ened to death. Meanwhile soldiers murdered the entire male population of Scherisaban, a Turkish village, and only three men, who managed to es I cape their notice remained living."

Hahn, superintendent of the White Pass & Yukon; and Judge Phil Abrahams, city treasurer of Skagway, arrived from the Gate City on the Humboldt this morning.
