The march down the dusty pike and

BIU.ED AS FREIGHT.
The enitiarkition of the Common
weal army wan a lively affair. Under
the instructions of the general Mana
ger, the whole of the army was billed
as "freight, " twenty-dx tons in all, at
M eents per ton, which was tS, 19 more
tbau it Coxey had been handling coal
instead of men, horses and camp lnm
ber. The coat of the trip, including toll
paid the Canal company, was $fio. Tne
idditional amount for provisions was
very little, for the Iiheral contributions
received here were enongh for almost,
half the boat trip.
These provisions, by tha way, though
given with very (rood grace, were the
price paid the Commonweal com
mander for keeping his men outside of
town. And from this sort of practical
blackmail he is likely to be well sup
ported during the remainder of his trip,
for the town en route have found it
eheapcr to pay the Comnuonwealers to
stay outside than it is to let them
come in and "find" themselves.
The barges in which the trip was to
be made were the ordinary coal carriers
that Ijad been aweptoutand filled with
hay. The ten ton of horses ware led
np a gangway, and, seated on their
haunches, gently slid into the barge
apportioned them, while the 13i tons of
men picked np the remaining tons of
inanimate freight and dumped it into
the other barge, anbseqnently drop
ping themselves in on top of it.
The etart was made just before noon,
