TRAMP ARMY FOR PARIS.
311-329 Eighteenth
Street.
Rock Island.
About 1,000 Hoboes Will Go to
the Great Fair.
fl. VESSEL ALEEADT CHAETEEEB,
Four Men Are at tbe Head of the
Movement Asenta Are Aow la
France Worklas Ip tbe Scheme.
They Wilt Forage For Tlielr Food
Sappliea.
Carl Browne, who led the western
Coxey army to Washington, has trim
med his hair, doffed his leather coat
find abandoned all further attempts at
raising a new army. In Denver and in
Wichita he has for weeks been preach
Iny tbe ew crusade with poor success.
In his last speech he said that the
poor have too much work to give heed
to his "On to Washington" doctrine.
He thererore accepted the situation
and announced his determination tt
hereafter preach expansion, provided
be could secure audiences that would
contribute to his support.
Browne did not realize that the
Paris exposition had anything to do
with the failure of his project, and
yet such is the fac-L Some three
months ago four men, professional
tramps, and yet shrewd men in their
way, met in Topeka and Inaugurated
a movement that for boldness as well
as apparent absurdity has never been
equaled in this country, being nothing
more nor less than an immense excur
sion of tramps to 1'rauce for the os
tensible purpose of attending the
great exposition.
These men, Jared Yeoman, Sam
Mitchell, George Purvis and Michael
rel:iney. are well known to the tramp
fraternity of the west and south, hav
ing been frequenters of nearly every
tramp camp west of the Mississippi
river. They are not without money,
even though they were never known
to do a day's work. That they have
influence with their kind may be
known from the fact that they have
already secured the pledges of over
700 to join one of the three companies
they have organized.
After having shown a mass of cor
respondence fully corroborating all the
statements made. Purvis, who see
rotary of the excursion committee.
gave in detail the origin and plans of
those who conceived this scheme. lie
said:
"1 assure you that our plaus ate
practical and that they will be fully
carried out We may not have enougli
means just now to meet all the ex
penses that will arise, for our num
bers are already greater than we an
ticipated when we started this move
ment. We expect to get together about
3O0 men who wjuited :t good time, and
we have already more than TOO. with
the certainty of having 2.000. Delaney
is now in Prance luoking over the
ground and mapping out our course
prior to our descent upon Paris. Here
is a letter from him in which he says
there will be no difficulty, ns he has
visited the cities of Ilochclle, Niort,
Poitiers. Tours and Orleans.
"We now propose to move In three
companies, crossing the ocean in as
many sail vessels, one of which wo
l'.av already chartered. Owing to the
prejudice that exists against us we
will make landing at three difltereu
pr.ints. Havre. Kcche'.le and Marseilles.
Tin.- latter is the greater distance from
Purls and therefore will be the first
point made. This company will be un
der my immediate direeti'-a."
"But do you not anticipate police in
terference?" was asked.
"Xo. I do not. I have been over nil
that country and know exactly what
wo must do. Of course we will not
travel in a lody when we land, but
will deploy over the country between
that point and Paris until we have rep
resentatives in Avignon, Valence, Ly
ons. Auxcrro. Sens and Meluu, enter
ing the big city in small detachments.
The company landing at Kochelle will
pursue the same course, covering the
cities spoken of by Delaney. who has
already made arrangements with local
men of the roving fraternity. Another
company will land at Havre, being the
first to reach Paris, although it will
be the last one to start. I will not tell
you the port from which we will sail,
ns this is one point which we do not
wish to become known until after it is
too late for the local authorities to pre
vent the congregating of such large
numbers as we will have.
"We do not intend to do anything
dishonest; but. you know, the men will
not go hungry when there is anything
in the country to eat. We now have In
the treasury more than enough cash to
pay the charter of one vessel and will
have no difficulty in getting all we
need. We intend to do this thing up
in style that Is, the style of our own
kind. Some of us may never come back.
Indeed we make our contracts for
crossing the ocean but one way. How
!o we raise our money? Look at these
letters. They all contain the advances
for anticipated expenses. You see that
we do business at more than a dozen
postoffices, not that we are afraid, but
It is more convenient. And then our
agents make collections every day,
which moneys arc added to the general
treasury."
This movement Is most unique, and,
while it may not reach the proportions
anticipated, it is as likely to be greater
in volume as smaller, for many who
follow the profession of tramp will
work wheu there Is sufficient incentive.
Yeoman is now in the south working
up this movement, while Mitchell is in
Colorado engaged In the same occupa
tion. Upon inquiry at the proper places
it was learned that these four men
were londed for tbe sum of S4.0O0
each, and as soon as the collections
react $12,000 they must give further
t
1 bond?. They are the fathers of the
enterprise, but ihey are not trusted.
I It wa.3 eo great surprise to learn that
this movement originated in Kansas
and that the leading men are Kausaus
so far as they are residents of any
etate. Information from other sources
confirm all that was said by Purvis
end leads one to lelieve that the move
ment is of greater magnitude than rep
resented. These men do not seem to
care for the usual things that Interest
tourists, but seem inclined to try the
, ways and manners of an older country
' regardless of the strict police system
that prevails. There will not be much
individual money in the three several
companies, for. having their passage
and food paid for, they will depend al
most wholly upon their methods as
practiced here. They are careless of re
suits, either personal or political,
claiming that Frae is a part of the
world that owes them a living.
Those who are cognizant of this
movement are watching it with much
interest, being anxious to observe the
results of a transplanting of an Ameri
can system to an older country.
