Kelly's Command Seizes a Union
Pacific Train
At Eransfon, Wyoming, and is
.Now Speeding Eastward.
Train Provided by the
Unin Pacific,
With Intention That the Indus
trials Shonld Have It.
Omaha; April 12. A special to he
Bee from Evanston, Wyo., says: -s.t
midnight last night, General Kelly's
army of the commonweal which had en
camped on the plain of Utah eight
miles out of Ogden quickly broke camp
and captured a Union Pacific freight
train made up of box cars en route to the
General Kelly at once assumed com
mand of the. train full of footsore and
weary crusaders. The engineer and lire
man obeyed orders as issued by the com
mmandaut as they had instructions
to do from Superietendent Bancroft
of the Mountain division- Should
one of the trains on his divis
ion be captured by the industrial legion.
The capture was totally unexpected, al
though Superintendent Bancroft had
predicted that such a movement would
very likely take place on the part of
General Kelly and his henchmen.
The march from Ogden was full of
incident and excitement to the hundreds
of men who composed the army. There
were plenty of stragglers, men weak
from the want of food, men with rheu
matism, pneumonia and the countless
ills that follow in the wake of starvation
and privation.
In Bold Bandit Style.
' "When Uintah was reached the army
decided to go into camp for the night
but pickets were put out and when a
freight train came along it was held up
in regular "bold bandit" style, the train
men showing little disposition to ques
tion the right o"the men to take charge
of the train. Camp was at once
broken and the men climbed on board
the cars and several of the most trusted
of Kelly's lieutenants took places in the
cab of the engine, fearful of treachery
on the part of the engineer and fireman.
The army remained at the depot here
about twenty minutes while engines were
being changed and then proceeded
eastward. They stopped a few miles
east of town and prepared break
fast. The citizens of tiis place
had baked extra quantities of bread
intending to feed them hre; but as they
had one . or two carloads of provisions
with them, they would not wait to par
take of the city's hospitality.
, They Are Intelligent Hen.
There are very many good looking, in
telligent, men ampn them, and they are
all well, behaved. They appear to be
under excellent discipline. The Ameri
can eagle floated from the open doors of
many cars, and one of their banners bore
the picture of a Chinaman with a pole
and baskets slung on his shoulder and
the words "Mellican man must go."
As the train pulled out one ione mu
sician among them played on the bugle,
arching through Georgia."
There has been no violence of any
kind, and all is as orderly as a Sunday
echool picnic.
The army ought to reach Cheyenne
tomorrow night, barring mishaps and the
side-tracking of the train, which will undoubtedly-be
attempted on the part of
the railroad company.
All to Be Vaccinated.
Omaha. April 12. The Omaha board
of health today made arrangements to
quarantine Gen. Kelly's army outside the
city and vaccinate every man. Several
cases of smallpox have been brought to
Omaha by tramps in the last few days.
May Go Through Topeka.
Cheyenne, Wyo., April 12. Gov. Os
borne says no effort will be made by the
. Etate authorities of Wyoming to interfere
with the industrial army while it does
not violate any law. The train bearing the
army will not stop within the limits of
any town and provisions contributed will
be sent to sidings between stations. It is
undecided whether to send the army
when leaving here east through Nebras
ka, or south through Colorado.
Gen. Storey a Cheyenne saloon keeper

State IIne Intpactor Gallagrhar After tbe
!oml MlniBf Companies.
State Mine Inspector Gallagher visited
the office of the attorney-general today
and held a consultation with reference
to the Weekly Payment law enacted by
the last legislature
There is dissatisfaction among the
miners iu the southeastern part of the
state. This time the trouble is about
payment of wags. The companies have
paid their men monthly and the men are
anxious to know whether the law of 1S93
can be made effective.
The state mine inspector says that a
demand would have been made before
this, had not the men been afraid that
they would lose their places if the en
forcement of the law was demanded.
The men are under contract with the
companies but the attorney-general says
that such contracts cannot affect the
weekly payment law as a section pro
vides that all contracts conflicting with
the law are void.
The law is very strict, but no criminal
action can be taken. It provides for a
penalty of 5 per cent per month on all
wages unpaid after the Friday following
the week upon which they are due. It
also provides that the corporatitns must
pay the cost of prosecuting the case.
The attorney-general has not given an
opinion in the case but he will undoubt
edly uphold the law. Mr. Gallagher left
today to visit western mines.

A Long Line of Sensational Litigation Is
Atchison, Kans., April 12. Suit was
filed in the district court today against
R. M. Manley, David Auld, John J. In
galis and E. G. Armsby for the recovery
of $3,200, which invites a long line of
sensational litigation.
The suit comes out of the failure of the
Kansas Trust aud Banking company a
year ago, in which the grossest fraud has
lately been discovered. Other suits of a
similar nature will be filed at once. The
allegations of the petitioners are highly
The Oklahoma Presbytery Has a BigKow
Beaded by a Missionary.
Gcthrie, Ok., April 12. The session
of the Oklahoma presbytery was dis
graced today by the high handed action
of a clique of new comers to the terri
tory. At least that is what the old min
isters and their followers say about it.
The "clique" is described as late semi
narians and it is claimed that, headed by
a synodical missionarj', who was selected
by fraud, they Voted old ministers out of
their pulpits and recommended personal
friends and proteges not yet graduated
from the seminaries in their places.
The church members are highly in
dignant and a split in many churches in
the territory will doubtless take place.

Too Bad For n Congrossmiiu.
Frankfort, Ky., April 12. A letter
to a personal friend iu this city was re
ceived from Col. Breckinridge yesterday.
He states positively that he will make
the race for congress at all hazards.
The following extract from the letter
will show the tenor of the epistle : "I see
from statements going around the rural
papers that in the event of adverse ver
dict I would withdraw from the race for
congress. I am in this congressional
race to the bitter end. I am uot going
to be on the defensive but am going to
make an aggressive tight."
The Pollard-lirerklnridfe Case Discussed
by Popallsi Woman's Club.
At the meeting of the Woman's Pro
gressive club at 3:3J yesterday afternoon
the Pollard-Breckinridge affair was dis
cussed at some length. It was the gen
eral sentimeut of most of those present
that this was another proof that Equal
Suffrage is the most important issue now
before the women of this country.
They thought that if woman had the
same opportunities as man to earn au
honest living she would not be compelled
to sacrifice herself as in the Pollard
Breckinridge affair.
Be Became Insane in Prison and Will
Be Let Out.
The governor today pardoned L.T.
Stephenson of Independence.
Stephenson is one of the Kansas pio
neers, and has been a prominent citizen
of Montgomery conuty, having held
various county otfices.
He was convicted two years ago of
stealing cattle and sentenced to two
years and a half In the penitentiary,,
where he has been confined until a short
time ago, when he became insane and
was removed to the asylum in this city.

Mountains Today.
They Passed a Hard Night Amid
the Snow.

Thousands to Join It When It
Nears Washington.
Chalk Hill, Pa., April 12. The army
of the commonweal had not regained its
accustomed sprightliness when the
bugle was sounded in the old colonial
stage house that brought the men slowly
from their beds.
Although 9 o'clock was the hour set
for the march to be resumed the men
were sfow to move, not being sufficiently
in harmony with the movement to con
sider with cheerfulness the leaving of
such warm and comfortable quarters for
a plodding through the snow of a dozen
The noon stop was at Somerfield and
the camp tonight will be at Petersburg,
probably in a commodious barn. If the
men have to spend the night in the thin
tent, there will be a revolt. Friday the
army will cross the line into Maryland.
The marching army numbers about 225
men. With those who wero mounted or
riding in the wagons, this would bring
the total strength of the command up to
about two hundred and sixty. It is quite
safe to say that Coxey does not want any
larger force than this behind him in
crossing the mountains. His scheme is
to get over the range, and somewhere in
the vicinity of the capital, and then re
cruit a large force. He hopes to draw to
his remarkable banners thousands of idle
men from New York, Philadelphia, Bal
timore and other large cities.
Christopher Col umbus Jones Was to Hate
Had l,SOO Rut Get Two.
Philadelphia, April 12. Promptly
at the appointed time today Christopher
Columbus Jones, division marshal of
Coxey's commonweal army, and three
recruits, started on their march to join
the main body of the commonweal at
Kockville, Md., a small town about fifteen
miles from Washington. Marshal Jones
came forth from his headquarters at 1312
Filbert street followed by about a dozen
He paused on the pavement a few
moments and then shouted: "March."
The first person to make a move was a
six footer, bearing a badly faded United
States flag; the others followed in a mo
ment. The cold . drizzling rain had a
dampening effect on their ardor and all
but two decided, to desert the army.
These desertions had no apparent effect
on Christopher Columbus Jones.
With a small tent wrapped in a shawl
strap in one hand and a map of the route
to be traversed in the other, the marshal
and his faithful secretary C. T. McKee,
Wm. Phillips and the big flag bearer,
followed by three or four hooting men
and boys turned into Market street
and were soon fairly on their dreary
march. The army will travel but five
miles today. Their first stop will be
Darby, a small town on the outskirts of
this city. Marshal Jones has made great
preparations for his army in Darby.
A large hall, the worshiping place of
the "Heavenly recruits," had been en
gaged for Jones' prospective 1,500 follow
ers, but the marshal now says his little
tent will afford ample shelter for the
army. Captain Clarke who was posed as
a dime museum freak, and a well known
character about town deserted last night
and aid de camp George Marshal did not
start with the army, but Marshal Jones
says he will join the ranks later in the
Oalveston & Great Northern Has the
Money for First Hundred Miles.
Denison, Tex., April 12. For the last
few days Capt. Ward Roemer, president
and chief engineer of the Galveston &
Great Northern railway has been in the
city conferring with the leading busi
ness men relative to locating the line of
the proposed road through Denison and
making this their headquarters.
A proposition was made this morning
which he accepted. Captain Roemer
was seen today by the Associated Press
representative. He said: "The new road
will run from Niobrara, Neb., south
through the grain fields of Nebraska
and Kansas, through Oklahoma and the
coal fields of the Indian Territory to
Denison; thence south to GaH-eston.
Associated with me are P. J. Dougherty,
New York; D. F. O'Kourke, Altoona,
Pa., and Judge Clark of Sterling, Kan.
"The capital stock is $18,000,000, and
we have the money to build the first
hundred miles of the road. We have
obtained charters in Nebraska, Kansas
and Oklahoma territory, and the road is
surveyed to the Canadian river."

Remarkable Attempt of the Democrats to
Force Republicans to Participate.
Washington, April 12. The Demo
cratic managers in the house today de
cided to take heroic measures to force
the Republicans to participate in the
proceedings. The committee on rules
consisting of Speaker Crisp, Messrs.
Outhwaite and Catchings (Democrats)
and Messrs. Reed and Burrows (Republi
can held a meeting just before" the
bouse convened and formulated a rule
to crush filibustering making the penalty
of failure to vote punisRable by a fine
of $10. .
The Republicans have cognizance of
the rule by which their hands were to be
tied before the meeting of the house.
Messrs. Reed and Burrows determined
to contest every such of the ground, and
a fierce parliamentary fight was immedi
ately precipitated.
Speaker Crisp, however, was in no
humor for trifling, and with a- strong
hand he swept aside all preliminaries
and forced the fight on the main issue.
As soon as the journal had been read
he recognized Mr. Catchings, from the
committee on rules, to present the report.
Mr. Reed vainly attemDted to interrupt
the reading for appeals for recognition

Mr. Reed was again on his feet when
the reading was completed, but the
speaker recognized Mr. Catchings to de
mand the previous question.
Then he turned to Mr. Reed, who said
he desired to raise a point of order.
"Does the chair recognize me?" asked
Mr. Reed.
"The chair will hear the gentreman,"
replied the speaker.
"I am to understand then, that the

"The chair has recognized the gentle
man from Mississippi to demand the pre
vious question and pending that he will
hear the gentleman," retorted the speak
er. This did not suit Mr. Reed's purpose,
however. He wanted a definite asser
tion from the speaker that he was recog
nized in his own right.
While indulging in some delicate
fencing with, the speaker on this point,
the speaker seemingly lost patience, and
with a bang of the gravel stated the
question to be on the demand for the
previous question.
Mr. Reed was left standing in the aisle
while the speaker took the rising vote.

The Republicans declined to vote and

The Populists voted with the Demo
crats in favor of the demand.

To the Effect That Judge
Of the Circuit Court Is to
Kesirn at Once.
In That Event Agreed On as
But Judge Johnson Says He is
Not to Resign.
Captain J. B. Johnson, judge of the
Shawnee county circuit court and auditor
for the receivers of the Santa Fe, is soon
to resign his position as judge, according
to a story made public today.
Not only, as the story goes, is Judge
Johnson to retire from the bench of the
circuit court, but it is understood that
Governor Lewelling has agreed to ap
point Judge W. P. Douthitt to fill the
When this court was created Judge
Johnson was appointed its presiding
officer by Governor Humphrey, and two
years ago he was re-elected to that posit
ion by a handsome majority.
When Judge Johnson was appointed
to his present position aa master in
chancery in connection with the Santa
Fe receivership by Judge Henry Cald
well, of the United States court, there
was a rumor in circulation that it would
be necessary for him to retire
from the bench of the circuit
court, but he has thus far been able to
attend to duties of both positions as the
two positions do not conflict in any way.
It is understood that Judge Johnson's
business connection with the Santa Fe
receivership is growing to such propor
tions however that he is beginning to
feel hampered and rather than be over
burdened with responsibility may retire
from the bench of the circuit court
Judge W. P. Douthitt, who is spoken
of as Judge Johnson's successor, is a well
known member of the Topeka bar and
one of the large property owners of
Shawnee county. Two years ago he was
nominated for the office of judge of this
court on the Populist ticket and although
he was not elected, he ran ahead of the
ticket upon which his name appeared
before the people.
It is understood that Governor Lewell
ing who has been advised about this
matter has agreed to - appoint Judge
Douthitt in event of Judge Johnson's
resignation. .
When seen by a State Jocrkal report
er today Judge Johnson deniedthat he is to
resign, but admitted that ho had at one
time considered retiring from the bench
but that the protest of the members of
the bar had been such that he did not feel
at liberty to resign.
The. Engagement Between Him and
Odette Tvler Broken OO".
New York, April 12. The engage
ment between Mis3 Odette Tyler, the
actress, and Howard Gould, the son of
the famous financier, is reported to be
broken off. It is said that she will leave
this country for Europe next Wednesday
on the steamer New York.
Her friends say that the probable occa
sion for Miss Tyler breaking the engage
ment was that some person in Savannah
had been recently inquiring into the
history of Miss Tyler's antecedents.
Howard Gould was seen at the Wal
dorf hotel, and at first refused to speak
on the subject, until assured that it was
common property.
"Then," he said, "I might as well own
up. It is true that the engagement be
tween myself and Miss Tyler has been
"For what reason?"
"Family opposition."
"Is Miss Tyler in town?"

from nervousness recently, and I beliew
that she is in New Jersey with friends."

a Sort of lteferee.
Judge Hazen and the district jury are
today acting as the final referees in a
cock fight, which occurred at Henry
Lodge's livery barn in North 'lopeka on
the night before last Thanksgivings.
Lawyers S. B. Isenhart and J. G.
Waters represent the two sides of the
case before the court, and are the legal
backers of William Karr, who claims
Vincent Kaczynski as stpke holder should
have turned the money on the principal
fight of the evening over to him instead
of to Ed Hossfeld.
Karr had bet Hossfeld $25 and the
money was placed in the hands of Yin
cent Kaczynski.
When on the witness stand Karr said:
"We put up our money and I expected
to win the fight and told all the fellows
that they couldn't do me any worse
than divide the money. The referee de
cided the fight against me and his
decision was unsatisfactory to the crowd
and most everybody who had been bet
ting on that fight declared their bets oil.
I said I had won the fight, but they said
they would stand by the decision of the
referee. Kaczynski refused to turn the
money over to me, saying that the referee
had decided the fight according to the
rules. The next day I went to llossfeld'a
store and claimed the fight in the pres
ence of Bill George and Harry Lyman."
D. II. Ct nklin, David Elder, Frank
Grief and Philip Myers, who had at
tended the fight, were all on the witness
stand aud they 6aid the fight was not
decided satisfactory to the crowd aud
caused a big row.
Ed Hossfeld, Vincent Kaczynski and
Bill Duffy, the hack driver, were the
witnesses on the other side.
Mr. Kaczynski said he believed the
referee had decided the tight according
to the rules and told Karr that if he
would write to the editor of the New
York Clipper he would learn that the
referee had decided the fight all right.
Ed. Hossfeld said: "I won the light
all right enough. There was some
trouble about the decision, but it was be
cause those fellows did not understand
the rules. Nobody that knows the rules,
Hackdriver Bill Duffy said: "I was at
the fight, I thought the decision was all
right. I had some money up on the light
and it was decided in my favor."

He drew a picture of Col. Breckinridge
"crouching helpless at the woman's
feet," aud went on to say how horribly re

his mistress before the mould had
gathered on the grave clothes of his
buried wife, and that he had taken her
to a house of ill repute for two hours to
convey to her the tender message that

doubtful relations with Rhodes, who had
