they spread ont over a stretch of terri

on foot across the state.

to it, the plan would be adopted, He
then left for Council Bluffs, It is said

The Authorities Cajoled By Okla

Army to Encamp.
HaOKBSTOWK, Md., April 20. Again
the Coxey army has cajoled a munici
pality and marched to a good camp
where the town had decided they
should pass through unwept, unhou
ored aud uusuug. The Hagerstowu
people made up their minds some days
ago that Coxey and his army should
not camp in town, and tbe unfavorable
report received from Hancook on
Wednesday, when the Commonweal
took possession of tbe town for a few
hours, only confirmed tbis determina
tion, so when overtures were made for
tbe fair grounds, the aathoritie played
fast and loose, neither refusing nor
consenting. Bnt Coxey was not to be
balked, and early this morniug Okla
homa Sam, the trusty courier of the
army, was astride his bronoho and lop
ing swiftly over for a last conference.
Sam's wild Western suavity carried
the lay He got the town authorities
to say that they had no objections to
the army camping it tbey conld get
permission from the owners of any
suitable property, and then the genial
Sam informed thorn that wai all he
wanted, as he hud gotten permission
from the Western Maryland railroad to
camp between their tracks on the rise
at tbe edge of the town The march
from Williatnsport was made in a lit
tle more than two boars, the army
filling town at noon.
Several halts for rest wore made ou
the road, tbn men throwing themselves
at length on the eool green turf along
side the pike, while the horses oropped
the freih gras and seotu-'d to enjoy
leing out and on the road once more.
At all of the farm houses where there
was a pnmp or spring in tight tbe ranks
were broken, and the ragged regiment
crowded around the water (apply to
fill their canteens and drink deep of
tbe mild stimulant. There were
crowds of horsemen, cyclists and citi
zens in wagon, who drove out and
camped in the shade by tbe roadside to
see the procession.
There were two incidents on tbe
march. At the first halt Marshal Bro
deriek brought np a good looking speci
men as Common wealers go, and com
plained that though the man bad been
excelled for stealing a fellow-member's
tobacco the night before, he persisted
in following the army. General Coxey
called up Chief Marshal Browne and a
drumhead court martial was held then
and there. It was proven by several
witnesses that Lindsey wiet a continu

Only one man responded, saying that,

Speaker Holds That United States
Senators Are Supposed to Be as
Competent to Manage the Affairs of

TtNKFFEK'S resolution relating to
JJ the Coxey army was again takeii
p up and a strong denunciation of
J it and the speech of tne Popu
list aenator from Nebraska, Mr. Alleu,
vesterday, was made by Mr. Hawley,
He said: 1 am sure that the remark
able speech of the senator from Ne
braska ought not to go forth to the
country as in any degree representative
of tbe views of the senate and it ought
not to puss without Borne conservative
comment and dissent. I think that
there is not a senator, that there is not
a sensible citizsti in the United States
who does not profoundly sympathize
with the tens aud hundreds of thous
ands and I may say millions of people
suffering in thu present extraordinary
iiuaucial business crisis.
It is quite possible to manage this
business gently and tirmly and have it
pass away, aud it Is quite possible to so
tnauage it that it may become a habit
to make pilgrimages annually to con
gress, aud endeavor to dominate con
gress by the physioal presence of the
poople. We have more nnthorative
advice and imperative commands from
the people of the United States than
Mr. Coxey cau possibly bring.
ARB NOT representative citizens.
The man who are coining here do not
represeut the great voice of the
American people. As to their com
plaining of the present situation so far
as it it due to to the political action of
congress; to far us it is due to the gen
erally disturbed financial condition of
the world. I have little to say, but they
do not represent the American people
in the manner or avowed purpose of
I am sorry to say it, but I feel bonnd
to say it, that thoMpeaeh of the senator
from Nebraska was one that would
have been receivod with tumultuous
applause in a meeting of anarchists.
It hud in it not requiring a microscope,
hat visible to the naked eye, the bac

attracted much attention in tbe senate

Weekly Review of Dun & Co Strikes
Responsible for Present De
pression. NewYobk, April 20. B. G. Dun &
Co. 's Weekly Review of Trade tomor
row will aay: "Extensive storms
checked improvement iu business only
for a time, and numerous strike have
not yet arrested it. Distribution of
products to consumer soeia large, for
more people are earning, and therefore
more are able to buy. But it is less
clear that the increase of working force
continues, or tha orders for products
will further expand The improvement
thm far realized it based on aetual in
crt'.'iso in orders for contumption, but
part of this was to cover Delated de
mands for tbe spring season.
A considerable portion of the indus
trial fore is still unemployed, and
with wages runcb lower than a year
ago, consumption is not as large. The
strike of eok workers, though virtu
ally over, atill affects output and de
liveries. Strikes in building trades at
many cities restrict employment of
labor aud demand for tnatnrials, and
during the past week there have been
numerous strikes in textile and other
manufacturing works, most of them

formerly paid i not yet oonceded.
Most of the recovery realized in
business bns been made possible by
consent of workers to accept lower
wages for a time, and if tbey insist ou
restoration of wages before consump

must stop. Tne great strike threat
ened by bituminous coal iniuere and
strikes of assotiated employes on some
railroads make the future less hopeful.
Enough orders have been taken in iron
and sttel to keep employed for a time
works now in operation, but this week
no definite increase is seen.
It is a healthy sign that speculation
is restricted. Industrial stocks have
been flighty as Usual, and thri average
of prices has advunced fifty per oent
per share, while the average for rail
road stocks has declined forty-five cents
per share. Exports of gold had some
infill nee, an ! continuing lots in earn
ings some. Earnings for April thus far
decrease 13 4 p-r cent against 14 1 in
rebruary. an I i:i 4 in March. Wheat
has scarcely changed in price during t,i
week. Predictions of a short crop are
treated with ind'.tlyrence.
Tho failures of the past week have
been somewhat more important than
usual, but were 2111 in the United States
against lSli hist year, and 45 in Canada
against fri last y,-ar. For the first half
of April the liabilities reported have
