by a pair of spirited steeds. The pro

covered wauc-iis containing camping
authtj, baled straw and several
quarters of beef, a brass band that

Cttiiona, This tiiey claimed was not
their fault, but the fault of our system
of government. The weather was
pleasaut when the start wu made, but
the procession was loon overtaken by
a severe snow storm This had a de
press.ug tendency and a number of de
sertions were reported before Reedu
bnro, tho tint sto; was reached. After
a brief stay at Reeduburn the army
resumed its onward march, and rescb.-i;
Canton shortly after I o'clock where
camp L-xington was pitched. Coiey is
thusiastic and claims tae movement
thus far exceeds his most sanguine ex
pectatious, but this is hardly keeping
with his former declarations.
ORATION TO COXEY.
On the niiiroii from MaMiilon to Can
ton. the army was followed by a mob
of nearly a thousand peopie in car
riages, on horseback and afoot. Tney
made the welkin rinif with their
cheers and kept Coxey constantly bow
ing and lifting his hat. On racbing
C-tnton the army waa areetei by fully
10.000 people, who were crowded on
the sidewalks and in windows and bi'
conies along 'he . ireet. Every oni re
garded the affair as a huge joke anil
good humor prevailed on all sides.
Camp L'lington waa pitched on a
Tacaut lot near the workhouse shortly
after i o'clock, and the tramps con
gtitnting the army of commonweal at
once began building bonfires, scatter
ing straw upon the ground and mak
ing other preparations to keep com
fortable during the night.
GODDESSES WERE SCARCE.
The army had to start nn its march
without a goddess of peaco, as no
maiden could be found to attaint that
role. Instead of a goddess, however,
a burly negro hat been enlisted to carry
the banner, thu giving the African
rice rtiresentation in the movement.
One group or rive soldiers deserted in a
body heforj Cnto;i waa reached.
Their marshal thought the celestial
powers were not exercising proper dis
cretion in sending a snow storm upon
the advancing hosts and advised his
men to break for passing freight trains
They beaded his advice and bar not
been heard of since. It is foared by
tome of Coxey's lientenants that there
will be more desertions before nurn
ing, nnless the weather moderates,
owing to the prevalence of comfortable
hay mows in these parts.
Coxey's life insurance policy it waa
learned today, has been revoked, the
officials of the company fearing h may
meet with a violent end before finish
ing his present enterprise.
Both Massillonand Canton have been
crowded all day witb people who have
come in from aur finding towns to
tee the "passing ... Coxey."
AT THE bivouac.
With the ground covered to the
depth of half an inch with mow, noth
ing to eat but a short snpuly of bread
and cheese and a little straw to sleep
on. the Coxey recruits are in anything
bnt a joyous mood tonight. .Murmur
ing under the big circus tent where
Ihe commonweal army is quartered, is
loud and general. Coxey's soldiers de
clared that things must improve or
they will go back to begging.
The army is expocted to leave Can
ton at noon tomorrow for Louisville,
O , where Camp I'effer will be ttrnck
Solon G Thayer, chief commissary
marsball, got discouraged and re
signed on reaching Canton. Oklohoraa
Sam was appointed his tutcessor.
Coxey says he has assurances that the
sympathetic cilizsns of Canton will
feed bis men on holled ham and pota
toes tomorrow morning.
In a bulletin issued late tonight Mr.
Browne said '"You boys are behaving
yourselves honorably, and all the
sneers about tramps and vagabonds
that are being hurled at you dally by n
portion of tbt press fall from your
backs like water from the ducks. Pay
no attention to the snickering of those
who have never felt the pangs of
hnnger, but be true to yourselves and
it will cause others to be true to you."
