BROWNE fN FULL COMMAND
Gen. Coxey leaves for New York to Attend
a Horse Sale Will Try and Arrange Ex
cursion Bates for May 1 The Last Order
Issued By His Chief Lieutenant
lUannsTOWN-, Md., April 20 Gen. Coxey
lelt bis nrmy at this town to-night for notour
(lays' absenco in New York, during which
time he will stop at tho Ilotcl Imperial and
Will attend tho sale of some of Us Kentucky
thoroughbreds. Besides this ho will try to
arrange with tho railroads for excursion rates
to Washington for tho demonstration on May
J. It is from this nrrangement that ho hopes
to get tho greiter Dart of his crowd in tho
citj. Should this plansuceeed, ho nud Browne
(tacl-u-o that there will bo no trouble in get
ting 50,000 pooplo to tho capital besides thoso
on the road.
To prevent any conflict of authority be
tween Jesso Coxey and Browne in his ab
senco Mr. Coxey invested Browno with power
of attorney to act for him. YouDg Coxcy
has not been on good terms with Browno
pinco tho attempted uprising of Smith, and
thero is a probability of a collision between
the two as soon as Coxey is gone. Browne's
general order for tho day was moro than
Usuilly unique. It wasas follows:
"Comrade of the commonweil, th's town has
been surely well named, for tho expected op
position of bankers and business men, as fore
cast in my general order of yesterday, has been
happily dissipated, for upon our entrance into
mis city Mayor hecdy met us, stating that wo
were welcome to camp upon grounds wlttiln the
city limits and lestowing other courtesies on be
half of oilier citizens hi caring for our stock. So
this has been our batllo of orktown, and now
Wo have won tho second Cornwnllls' sword.
"Shortly nftcr the establishment of the camp,
J D Simmons, a prominent farmer, camo with
JJ0 loavesof bread, rollowimr him camo Robert
Mnrnerand brother with SOU pounds of fresh
fish, and our multltudo was fed by a modern
miracle. John Ulttcr brought threo dozen
pair of socks and several shirts, and thero Is no
doubt that there will be many other contribu
tions from tho generous people of this region.
"On our way from Camp California tho Amer
ican flag was again halted by n soulless toll cor
poration and compelled to pay tribute to wave,
in tho land of Carroll of CarrolUou Bugle call
will be b'own at 7 o'clock, breakfast at 8 and
march at 9 to Camp Medhurst, near Uoonesbor
ough, in honor of the Callfornlan minister of
that name who had tho courage to follow in the
footsteps of his Master and preach a sermon to
our brothers now struggling to reach us ol erlaud
from that stato
llrother Coxcy leaves this evening for Xew
"York, and In order that no moro lies shill bo Im
posed on J on bynnyone connected or uncon
nected with the commonweal, ho leaves me a
document; of which tho follow log is a true copy:
"To whom it may concern. 1 his is to certify
that Mr Carl Itrowne has full chargo of all
horses, wagons nnd the supplies that are now
with tho commonweil, and power to do with
them as he sees fit during my nl sence, tho same
as though they were his own, and has also full
command of tho commonweal during my
absence. J S. CoxEr.'"
In spite of tho favorable comment on Hn
gerstown in this order, the arm had to buy its
own firewood to cook, supper on Logan hill,
nnd as the town authorities refused to allow
tho army to draw on tho hydrants of tho town
tho cmi"p was without water until tho railroad
comrany gao tho use of a plug in tho rail
road yards. Later in the evening, when a
sevcro thunder storm aro-e, Mr. II. C. Kohler,
tho agent of tho Western Maryland road,
ngam camo 'o tho rescue, giving the army tho
use of an emptj warehouse after a farm hand
mimed Bnllentino had refused them shelter in
an empty bint near by.
Certificates of mejit were j esterday issued
to all of tho nrmy vt ho made the passage of
tho mountains, tho certificate entitling tho
holder to the souvenir of the trip that is to bo
presented by Browne.
Mr. Coxey left on tho 9 p. m. train for Hnr
risburg. whero ho will go by tho Pennsyhani i
railroad to Now York. lie will mako "a short
visit, probably stopping for a conference w ith
some of the managers of tho coming ropulist
convention, but how long his stay would bo
he would not say. Tho storm, which has con
tinued in iolcnce, caused Browno to iuo a
special order, saying that tho army, hiving
two dnjs to sparoon tho schedule, would wait
till good weather before leaving llngerstown,
though that should bo till Monday.
PREPARATIONS AT THE CAPITOL.
Sergeant -at-Arms Bright and .Major .Moore
The Senate Committee on Rules was in con
sultation j esterday with Chief of Poliso Mooro
and Sergoant-at-Arms Bright, of tho Senate,
concerning tho prospective nrrival of Coxcy
nnd his followers and other organizations of
tho samo character, reported to be on their
xvav to Washington to influento legislation.
Both these officials said in reply to ques
tions put by members of tho committee tint
they had taken duo notice of the approach of
theso men and had taken all tho precautions
jThicb tlie law permits and which they con
sider tho situation demands to protect to city
and tho Capitol. Both expressed the opinion
that tho police force of the city and of tho
Capitol were nmplo for theso purposes, and
paid they did not apprehend that it would be
necessary to call for unusual assistance.
Tho committee took no action bej ond dis
cussing tho question nnd expressing their sev
eral opinions that the law, now on tho statuto
pooks were in every waj sufficient for tho
Col. Moore, speaking of tho police depart
ment, said that ho hid taken all posslblo pre
cautions for tho detection of criminals and
evil ln'entiontd persons who may make tho
presence of the commonwealers an excuse for
Col. Bright, in reply to an inquiry alter tho
meeting, said "Mr. Coxey will not bo per
mitted to hold his contemplated meeting on
tho steps of tho Capitol. That is against the
law, and is one of tho items in Coxcj's pro
gramme which will not occur as he has an
nounced. Mv lpolley will be to grant tho
Coxeyites all tho libcrtv that is granted to nil
other citizens bj tho la'.v, and to protect them
In tho enjovment of all proper privileges, but
tho laws will hive to bo enforced."

Mr Uolph quoted from President Clevelnuds
taritf message of lsK", estimating the loss to tho
wool grow or ou a flock of flf t sheep to bo enly
336 a year, and on 1U0 sheep 473, and said that

An interesting comparison was dran of the
number of sheep, itouuds of wool washed and

states of California, Oregon, Xovada, Colorado,
Montana. Washington, nnd Wyoming, with that
in tho thirteen southern states, and in all the

A similar comparison was presented of the
factory system In tho Pacific Coast states, in the
southern states and In the other states, showing
that the southern states had but lb per cent of

TO-DAY AT KOON.
Two Hundred Thousand Miners Will Go
on u Mrikc in the Coal Regions.
riTTSBuna, Pa., April 20. To-morrow nt
noon the great coal strike, which has been
pending for several months, will bo Inaugu
rated. Opinions differ ns to tho number of
men who will bo engaged In it. President
John McBride, of the United Mine Workers'
Union, estimates that two hundred thousand
men will bo engagod. Secrijtary-Trcasuror
Patrick McBride is quoted as placing the
number to bo engagod at ono hundred thou
sand. Tho telegraphic reports Indicnto that
tho number will bo between theso two ex
tremes. The strike will bo confined to tho bltuml
nouo coal region of the United States. In this
there aro t went -threo districts organized,
four being in Pennsylvania.. Tho other dis
tricts nro Washington, Wyoming, Colorado,
Indian Territory, Missouri, Kansas, Alabama,
Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, West Yirglnin,
Maryland, Ohio, Indiana, nnd Illinois. A
Massilloii operator says that 3,000 cool mines
in tho United States will bo abandoned. Of
theso 300 are located In Ohio.
In tho Pittsburg district atone thero nro
nbout 120 mines, and fully thirty moro In tho
Clearfield or mountain district. Theso two
districts havo about 2(),000 miners. In Ohio
there aro about 30,000 miners; in Indiuun,
12.000; in Illinois, 11,000; in Alabama, 10,000;
who havo already quit work; In Missouri,
8,000, In Tennessee, about 4,000. In West Vir
ginia about 10,000 diggers nre engaged, but
it is not belicod that many will quit work.
In ashiugton nil are ready to stop.
TI at thn oj rators in this tho Ohio dis
trict believe tho strike will assume great
proportions has been shown by tho starting
during thu past week of mines which havo
loug been idio in tho feverish hurry to got out
coil. Een coko cars havo been used for tho
purpose, nnd tho putting on of as mnny
men ns can to secured. They have not been
formull) notified of tho strike, but are uwaro

himself to tho Governor as not blanlng
him for the detention caused ky tho

asked to be treated with decent hospitality.
In bidding the Governor good-bve he shook
