His Commonweal Army Prepared to Leave
Washington Tomorrow,
The Hero of the Grass Episode Will
Lead His Warriors to Sunny Mary
land and Pitch Camp Near the His
toric Duelling Ground at Bladens
burgh The Terrors of the Work
house Induced to Move.
Washinotpv, May 11.
ACOD OOXEY'S commonwealers
will quit the District of Coluin-
n) bia early tomorrow mnminjt.
v-' The new camp will be at the fa-
tnotM Spa Spring rnvir tbe historic
dni'lliiiK ground at Wndcnsbnrit, juat
over th Marylaml line. Toll decision
was reached by th general of the army
today, when lie found that his follow
ers could not bfconiH depandunt upon
the locnl city government, but miaht be
punished by terms in the workoous.
The terrors of the workluuise were
more t huii the common wealern had cat.
ciliated npon. Tney wore willing to tie
fed in jail if it cmne to that, bat work
ing ditoonoerted the whole army, ofll
cer as Will us privates.
Ri'porta to the contrary notwlt'i
ttanding rtiere had heu no BOdi&Oa
tion in the health officer's order for
Coxey to break np 'Camp Tyranny"
this afternoon at 4 o'clock, and th Dis
trict officials were determined to en
force to order to abate the numanee at
that hour. Coxey, while making the
effort yeaterduy 10 secure an extension
of time, bad alio learned that the law
of the District provided other penalties
than simple imprisonment, and that
vagrants Blignt, aud probably would
be given plenty of work to do in ease
they wer arm tod.
The intimation wasonveyed tn him
o directly tiiat be oecame eatWti-d
that any further relations with the po
lice would result la the utter demoli
tion of the army ; and he determined
to avoid tt.e contingency. Over a
wek ago Attorney J. H. Rogers had
cflrred Coxey the use for an indefinite
term of a large tract of land at the Spa
Spring, but Coxey did not consider it
worth examining, as it wns outside of
the district, and he had no idea of
abandoning Ml frequently reiterated
declaration thut hu wonld stay id
Washington all summer, or nntil con
gress aceeded to his demands. When
the alternative of workhouse or evacua
tion of Washington whs definitely pre
sented, uowever, he concluded to ac
cept Mr. Rogers' offer.
Coxey drove six miles oat to the
spring this morning- aud expreteed him
self delighted with the location. It is
on high ground with gravel foundation
anil is well adapted to a health resort
on aceonnt of the fine water and drain
age and a wide stream, in which the
comnionwealers anil the horses may be
nude clean. Coxev burned hack to
the district commissioners, and at noou
appeared before them with the an
nouncement tint ne had found the
ideBl camping plact and would like
permission s move to it
When he mentioned the location the
commissioners told him tney had noth
ing to do with it, aa it was out of their
jurisdiction. Their only interest was
in his abating his present nuisance by 4
o'clock this afternoon. Coxey replied
that be had determined to move, but
asked that he be given nntil tomorrow
morning, piouiieing to begin the march
not later than 10 o'clock. After fully
emphasizing tins promise, the commis
sioners agreed to postpoue the execu
tion of the order nntil the time, aud
Coxey withdrew.
At "Camp Tyranny," as lute as I
o'clock this afternoon, Carl lirowne and
the rest of the army we'e utterly ig
norant of the turn affairs had taken,
lirowne was sure that the camp would
never be moved. He declared that ev
ery man In the army might be arrosted
and sent to jail, but the cainn won! I
.emiiiti, and as soon as any of the
jnen got ont of jsil they would re
turn, bam Fremer, who had been em
ployed by Coxey to take charge of the
horses, could not be disturbed becanse
he was no vagrant, being paid a good
salary, and he would maintain the camp
ni long as nessary, that it might be
available for the other armies that
were on the way aa well as the Coxey
its already here. Drown said.
"Our polioy is fnlly settled npon, It
is one of passive resistance to the un
warranted persecution of the district
authorities. We are not at all captions.
It is simply a case of being driven to
the wall. We havo made this camp the
most sanitary spot in this part of
Washington, aud if we are put out in
the street the city will have to take
care of us where the sanitary arrange
ments are not as good as our own. I
suppose they'll arrest na one at a time.
Coxey will go first and wo'll step into
the breach. When I am arrested some
one will take my place In command,
and so on nntil the 500 men have suc
cessively been arrested. We have pre
pared for it. I have cautioned all the
men to be careful and strike no blow.
"No one will forcibly resist. By the
time they have depopulated this camp
the reinforcements from the west will
be arriving and the game can coatinne
indefinitely. There is no doubt about
the other armies reaching here. I know
all the leaders, Frye, Kelly, (jalviu,
and all of them were in San Francisco
with me, and I know that I can count
on them. Wo have the whole west
with ns in this movement. The farmers
from Ohio and beyond will see that we
are fed as long as we stay here.
"We shall not want food. I got the
shipping receipt today for the carload
of provisions that is now on the way
from Springfield, Mo. That car is hav
ing a triumphal career to Washington.
It is drcorated with Ugs and a bigsign
showing its contents nnd destination,
and all along the road people are tack
ing cards to it. It will inspire tho for
mation of new armies, and thousands
of men will be following it in tho coarse
of the month. You can say that this
movement has suroly begun. No one
can doubt thut its ultimate end will be
successful. "
