Sanders' Industrial Army . is Captured, And Brousrht Into Topeka at 1:15 Today. A Great Crowd is at the Depot TO SEE THEM COME. The Commonwealers Number About 400- And They Are in the Best of Spirits. THEY SING SONGS, Hang: Grover Cleveland on Top of Pikes Peak Is One of Them All Wear Red Iiadjres. , The Men May Be Taken to Leavenworth. Scott City, Kan., May 11. General J. S. Saunders and" his army of com monwealers are in the hands of the law. The outfit surrenderea to United States Marshal S. F. ieely in the rail road yards in Scott City, which is 409 miles west of Kansas City, at 7 o'clock last evening-. No resistance was offer ed. The army will be taken to Topeka for trial for obstructing- United States mails. The men are g-ood natured, and the government officials do not expect further trouble. When Marshal Neely's train reached llealy, seventeen miles east of Scott City, a dispatch was handed Superin tendent Clark informing him that the commonwealers had pulled into Scott City, and upon learning that the track was torn up started back toward the Colorado line. An order was at once issued to have. the track at Scott City relaid, and General Attorney Wag-g-ener instructed his local attorney to institute proceedings in Scott county for the arrest - of . General Saunders" and his army for bringing stolen pro perty info the tate and have th sheriff and a posse at the depot, to meet the special trainL' The special ha'd' bee-n delayed at two or three places, but from llealy to Scott City it ran with the throttle of the locomo tive wide open. The special train arrived at Scott City at 5 o'clock and found a gang of men busily en staged in repairing the track. It took about forty minutes to complete the! work, but before the train was ready to pull out General Saunders' train was seen approaching in the distance. It had gone back to Modoc to allow the west-bound mail train to pass. Marshal Neely sta tioned his deputies about the special train, and he and General Attorney Waggener walked westward to the switch to meet the commonwealers. The stolen train stopped- at the switch and General Saunders alighted from the engine and ' walked rapidly toward the depot, accompanied by half a dozen of his men. lie was in tercepted by Marshal Xeely and Mr. Waggener. who stated to him their mission. Mr. Waggener, having- been sworn in as a deputy, read the writ to the general, who asked for thirty minutes to confer with his officers. The request was granted and botb sides withdrew to their respective trains. At the expiration of thirty minutes General Saunders ' appeared at the door of Superintendent Clark's special car, where Mr. Waggener was in waiting. The party had just finished supper, but the table was still stand ing and General Saunders was invited to eat. Ho accepted the invitation and proceeded to do justice to a square meal. After supper General Saunders and Mr. Waggener held a conference, and the leader of the commonwealers decided to turn the stolen train over to the Missouri Pacific railroad com pany and surrender the army to the authority of the government on a charge of obf-tructing the mails. The people of Scott City made up a purse and bought the commonwealers u cow for. their snpp?r. The animal was slaughtered and divided among the seven companies. The meat was broiled over camp fires and eaten with corTee and corn bread, which the local, committees donated. The stolen train vas divested of its commonweal decorations and side-tracked. The commonwealers were permitted to keep the large American flag which adorned the stolen locomotive. The principal officers of the army are General Saunders, Adjutant Gen eral Connelly and Colonel Murphy. General Saunders is a ungle man, 39 years old. He was born in Green county, Missouri. The army is fairly well drilled and disciplined. None of the men were armed but all carried clubs. In the meantime the commonwealers had gone into camp on some vacant lots near the stock yards. Mr. Wag gener, Marshal Neely and General Saunders visited the different com panies and the men were formally placed under arrest by the marshal, who made a speech informing- them that they would have to accompany their leader to Topeka. General Saunders assured each company that it was all right- The men cheered their commander to the echo. . Armngetnents were then made to escort the ai.uy to Topjka, - Thixo coachea : were ; taken from the regular cast-bound passenper train and at tached to the Wag-g-ener special, which had two eitn coaches. These afford ed accommodation for the entire army, which numbered 451, actual count. tjeneral Kannders Talks. - In a conversation General Saunders said: "We have not obstructed the mails, and I am very sure that the en tire, army will, be discharg-ed. We have made it a point to keep out of the way of mail trains, and when we arrived at Scott City and found a mail train heading1 toward us, Ave went back to Modoc to keep from obstruct ing it. We are law-abiding- citizens, and I can show when the hearing- comes up on the replevin action that we hart permission Pueblo. I to take an engine from Our men are laborers. lhere is not a professional tramp in the army. We submit to the mandate of the federal court because it is our duty as citizens to do so. I want to incidentally re 'mark that I offered Superintendent Clark S1.00O to haul the army from Pueblo to Kansas City, but he did not reply to my communication. But that is all right. We will reach Wash ington by June 2, aud assist in the demand for legislation in the interest of the common people." ABKIVAL OF THE TRAIX. An Immense Crow. I of Topeka People Meet Ilie Commonwealers. When the people of Topeka learned that Capt. Sanders .commonweal army was to be landed in Topeka today, the interest in the Cripple Creek miners was doubled. News reached the city this morning that the train in charge of B. P. Waggener, of the Missouri Pacific road, would arrive at 1:15 p. m. at the depot here, and was prompt ly bulletined on the fcTATK Journal's bulletin board. It rapidly spread over the city and an immense crowd of people gathered at the Missouri Pacific depot. All classes of people were represented in the throng. Gen. Artz came sailing down on his bicycle. G. C. Clemens was there. Chas. K. llolliday and Joseph G. Waters were among the spectators. Buggies and bicycles brought scores. When the train steamed iu tho crowd moved en masse down the yards to the passenger coaches which seemed to be boiling over with humanity. The commonwealers were hanging out of the car windows in bunches of three, cheering and waving hats aud handkerchiefs, some of the latter as black as the ground. They were dusty but in spite of their long ride appeared to be in the best of spirits. There was some delay before the car doors were un locked and the Topeka people gathered just outside the cars. "We haven't had anything- to eat Bince 4 o'clock this morning," said one of the men. "We'll get plenty to eat when we get to Washington," said another. "Three cheers for Coxey and Sanders," cried a man in one of the cars, aud they were given with a, long whoop at the end. A minute later another carload started up with, a parody i John Brown's Body, in which the refrain was "Hang Grover Cleveland on Top of Pikes Peak." This was greeted with cheers by the crowd on the outside. Ilie Men in Gray Spirit. They chaffed and talked with the men. all of whom seemed to be just-ordinary workingmeu. Tere were only one or i two who looked like bums. Most of them are young men under thirty-five years and all of them are in the best of spirits, laughing aud talking. On each man's breast was a red silk badge bearing the words "Cripple Creek Legion Coxey In dustrial Army." Some of the men asked for a 'chew of tobacco," which was handed up to them and received with thanks. In one of the cars was J. M. Wiley of Topeka, who was one of the deputies. Somebody in the crowd veiled out, "Hello, Wiley, where did they grinned and said, ' get your" Wiley Oh, they got me out west. The crowd of people rapidly increased in size. Hundreds of people came pour ing into the yards from every street. The viaduct under which the rear of the train stood was black with people. The only flags in sight were the two green flags on the engine. The commonweal has a number of American flags with them and banners bearing the following devices: I GIVE CS THE FREE AND UNLIMITED : ; COINAOE OF SILVER. ; ON TO WASHINGTON. ; PEACE ON EARTH GOOD WILL TOWARD : I MEN, BUT DKATU I I TO ISTEHKST BEARING BONDS. ; They W Hut Tobacco. About the first thing the industrialists vould ask for when tiiey stopped was tobacco. They wanted to see a morning paper. "We want to see what we've been doing." The men said they had not been ted since their capture and that they were pretty hungry. "We've a ban quet wailing for you at the state house grounds," callad an enthusiastic sympa thizer, and a cheer went up from the in dustrialists within hearing. "Say, pard, is this Topeka?" asked a crusader with a face as brown as leather, to the one in the next seat. "1 reckon it is." "Is this whar Governor What's-his-name lives?" "It must be." "Then I reckon they won't keep us here long." - v The men are a jolly set and there is no ill-nature among them, although hunger is not commonly conducive to good cheer. There is a banjo in one of the cars and the idle time since the start seems to have been consumed in com posing verses to well known songs ex pressive of their contempt for Giover Cleveland and his administration. The banjo song artist amused the crowd wUh a selection one verse of which runs as follows: . One or the Soari. Oh, we're going to Buzzard's Bay, Oh we're i:omg lo Buzzard's Bay; If Cleveland is there "We'll kick him in the air. Oh, UogKOU lueo rniy times" The reader will readily see that the last line doesn't rhyme, but this doesn't spoil the effect. A storm of applause from the assem bled spectators greeted this somewhat unique bit of comedy and there were calls for more and a dozen verses were improvised seemingly on the spar of the moment. One would start the song and as one line wu repeated over and over again the rest easily caught on. At one time another car load joined in singing a series of sentiments derisive of Cleveland. Of course their lines were repeated several times, to the tune of "We'll hang Jeff Davis," as was also the first line of the other part, which began, "Oh, we're all boys from Colorado," and ended, "Our Good Old Mountain Home." One funny fellow with a waxed mus- tacne stood up in one car and announced ! i iiatt iviuucr is now waning m iud uiu- ing car,'- and the- orders for "quail on toast" and "a little beefsteak with a couple of eggs" were numerous. Fun prevailed and the men generally regard the matter of the arrest as a huge joke on "Graver's brave men." "One man could have arrested us as easily as a thousand, though there were only thirty-seven," said a good looking young recruit. "We made no resistance." A TALK WITH GEX. SANDKKS. lie Says They're Going to Washington, as n Xjivlufr rrotsst. General- John Sherman Sanders and his Cripple Creek industrial army aa prisoners of war, who arrived in Topeka this afternoon, are contented and happy in their present imprisonment. A State Jouksal reporter talked with General Sanders in General Attorney Waggener's special car immediately on the arrival of the train. General Sanders is a good looking young man, dressed in a good suit of I clothes aud a pair of corduroy leggings, j but he had not shaved for a day or two, I and his shirt was not fresh from the laundry. He apologized for his dirty shirt and t,aid: "This shirt is n little j soiled, but this railroadiug is dirty busi I ness aad is hardly wnat it is sometimes j cracked up to be," and the "general" i smiled. I "Continuing he said: "My full name is j John Sherman Sanders. Not the SUer-' ' man who marched lo the sea or the John j Sherman of single gold standard fame, j but John Strtnau Sanders, who believes j in silver aud a double standard." j "What are your present plans?" ! "We started for Washington and we are going there I can tell you. VVp ap preciate the kindness of the government i iu assisting us- on our journey thus far. ! They have been very kind lo us," and he looked at Balie Waggener with a twinkle in his eye. VVe left Cripple Creek a week ago Tuesday with seven companies, aud left Pueblo Monday night with eight com panies, having enlisted an additional company there. "W'-e have had remarkably pleasant trip considering everything. The most diffi cult obstruction we had to pass was at Chiviiifrton and that was a bad one. They had put a big engine square across the track aivd a big freigiit car was planted on each side of it, but we got around all right, lhe last obstruction we went around in just thirty minutes and built a long stretch of track. "Whitt the men are most interested in just nciw is getting something to eat. They had a light breakfast of eggs aud meat at Hoisiugton at 3:30 o'clock this morning. Last night at supper we had fresh beef. A cow was run into camp and in not to exceed thirty minutes it minutes it had been butchered, cooked and eaten. Our meu appreciate a good thing." In regard to the regulations of the armv General Sanders said: "First of all we have discipline; our regulations pro vide for the enforcement of our orders. We do not allow firearms in camp aud you will not find a guu of any kind among the men. Drunkenness is strictly forbidden and we have since leaving Cripple Creek had two trials by court martial and have drummed two men out of camp for violating orders." General Sanders says his home is at Spokane, Wash., although he has been at Crippie Creek for several years. He has been a miuer all his life and has during the last thirteen years worked all over the west in various mining camps. He says that the report sent out that his men are mostly Mexi cans is false; that there are but two Mexicans in tho army and they were both born in the United States. The. general has been riding in Balie Waggener's private car all the way from Scott City and shortly after the train was side tracked here, Mr. Waggener invited him out to dinner while the yard master was instructed not to move the car while they were at dinner. Balie Waggener, the Missouri Pacific official, who is responsible for the men being arrested and brought to Topeka, ! said: "I am going to Atchison at 4:4J. 1 don't know what is to be done with these men, they are in charge of the United States marshal and he is looking after them." TO CAMP AT STATE HOUSE. Gov. Lwellinjr Gives Perm tsslon for Com monwealers to Camp on Capitol Groan. 1ft. At 10:30 thi3 morning Governor Lew elliag received the following telegram: Ox the Road at Allen, May 11, 1894. Hon. L. D. Jewelling: Will arrive at Topeka at 1 p. m. with General Sanders' army of four hundred industrials. Will you permit them to go into camp at the state house yards? XX MT. AGGENEn. 7 Permission Given. The executive council was called to gether and after a conference the fol lowing telegram was sent: " Topeka, Kansas, May 11, '94. B. F. Waggener: Permission is given for Sanders' army to camp at the capitol grounds. L. D. Lewelling, R.. S. Osbors, .Governor. Secretary Executive Council. MAI GO TO LEAVENI) ORTlt. Marshal Keely Aiki Attorney General Olney for Advice. Marshal Neely and Commissioner Wagener this morning sent a lengthy telegram to Attorney General Olney at Washington giving a detailed statement of the industrial army case and recom mending that they should be taken to the military reservation at Ft Leaven worth, because there is not sufficient jail capacity at Topeka, and at the reservation the men pan be better fed and kept under more strict surveillance. They urged permission to take the prisoners to Leav enworth' on the ground of "necessity and discipline.'.' No reply had been received to this telegram up to 3 o'clock, but both the marshal and Waggener expect a favor able reply from Attorney General Olney by supper-time. Attorney Bailey Wag gener will return to Atchison at 4:30. A SCENE AX THE CARS. Frank Herald Offers Uas Card mntl Ser- viost lo Sautters. When the commonweal train stopped in Topeka today Sanders was standing on the platform of Balie Waggener's private car alongside of United States Marshal Neely. G. C- Clemens, Frank Herald, Sanitary Sergeant Hudson. ex-Adjutant General Artz, Captain Hunter and the Home Guards ail . crowded about the platform and inquired which was General Sand ers. A newspaper man pointed out the officer, but United States Marshal Neely whlsperefl to Sanders: "I don't want those fellows up here, and you had bet ter gd-back'in the car forawhile." San ders said "all right" and started back. When General Sanders was back in Waggener's car - talking to a State Journal reporter the local sympathizers crowded around the window and Frank Herald handed in his card saying: "Gen eral Sanders you have lots of friends here and we are all at your service. There is plenty of legal help here." General Sauders thanked them and said he was not afraid but what he would fiud fenough friends. He said he was satisfied the charges against them of ob structing the United States mail would not stick. "We are not guilty," he said, "of any of the charges filed against us." Pl'EBLO FUBLIC OPINION. The Imparling; Paper There Speaks Editor . ially of the industrial. The Pueblo Chieftain of May 10 says editorially: "Well, the Cripple Creek contigent of the Coxey army has come andgoue with out any marked effect upon Pueblo or her people. While here the men be haved themselves as well as any body of similar size composed of people gathered in a like manner could be expected to do, except iu the matter of the seizure of the railroad train which carried them east. While the army was the guest of the city its members were boarded, as it was proper tuey should be, at the public j expense, every taxpayer thus being ouwgou to pay nis snare, outrioutions from private individuals, save in the way of talk, which an old saw says "butters no parsuips," were few and far between. The board furnished by the city was not of an epicurean variety but it was whole some aud there was enough of it to sup port life. "Of course -while there is a wide differ ence of opinion among our people regard ing this movement all must lament the cxistauce of . conditions which serve to "r-ring about ' such gatherings and force a portion of the workingmen of the coun try tolay aside their pride and self respect and become objects of public charity. Such a condition of affairs was never be fore known in the United States, and all g-ood citizens will unite in the hope that it may never exist again. "Whether the march of the army of the unemployed upon Washington will pro duce, any effect upon Congress or upon the welfare of those for whose benefit the movement was ostensibly inaugura ted remains to be seen. Time alone will tell. Pueblo bids the parting guests god -speeds" K1IWARD WILDER'S VIEWS. Says Topeka Ho Enough Unemployed of Her Own to Care lor. The Santa Fe officials are - resting se cure in their belief that General Sanders and his Cripple Creek commonwealers have too much good sense to attempt to go out of Topeka on their road, which is in the hands of receivers of the United States court. General Manager J. J. Frey, who is now in New Mexico, said a few days ago when the industrials were at Pueblo, that he was prepared for them if they should attempt to travel out of Colorado over the Santa Fe. The officials at the general office building are consequently not borrowing any trouble over the prospects. Mr. Edward Wilder, treasurer of the Santa Fe,who is also one of the managers of the Associated Charities when seen by a Statk Journal reporter said: "It strikes me that these people are in great luck in getting transportation in a pas senger train from Scott City to Topeka free of charge and have provision made for their meals. They must be enjoying this free ride. I don't understand what will be done with the men when they are brought here although they will no doubt be tried on the charge of bringing stolen property into the state and for ob structing United States mails. "I am not in sympathy with this move ment, it seems to me they are doing more injury to the cause of labor every day than can be estimated." "Will the Associated Charities take any action towards feeding these men or will the society take some action towards preventing them from being stopped here?" asked the reporter. "We will net give them a meal nor furnish one dollar towards their enter tainment. I think I know Rev. B. L. Smith, president of the society, well enough for that. As to what will be done towards seeing that they are not unloaded on the city and Shawnee county I cannot tell." "It would be an injustice to our own unemployed and would be putting a premium on this kind of business for us to feed them. If this county was in a position to furnish them some class of work which our own men could not do, such as building roads or bridges, it might do to give them work at say fiftYj cents a day, just enough to keep them alive, but it would be wrong to pay them the same wages our own men receive. I am sure 1 don't know what will be done with them should they be unloaded here." WHAT KIND OF MEN THEY ARE. Honest. Hard-Working- Fellowi One a Doctor, Another m School Teacher. F. L. Vandegrift. correspondent of the Kansas .City Star, who waa on the com- monweal train, says that one can not go among Sanders' commonwealers without being- impressed with the intelligence of the. men. Sanders himself is a Missou rian by birth, but came from San Fran cisco recently to Cripple Creek. He is an electrician by trade, and is -a well informed man. Among the men is a school teacher, another one is a doctor, there are two paper hangers, a book keeper and half a dozen store clerks. The majority of the men are - honest, hardworking mechanics and miners.who have lost their situations in Colorado through hard times. STATE MO USE DIHAPPOINIEU Became the Commonwealers Were Not Immediately Marched to the Square.. About noon G. C. Clemens, Frank Her- I aid and- others were in conference with the governor aud other state officers in j relation to the arrival of the Coxey ites. The question was discussed from a polit- ical standpoint. , i Attorney General Little waa asked j what he thought of the detention of the j men: "I don't know what the charge is j upon which the men are held, and I ! would rather not give an opinion. They 1 may be held for interfering with, the j mails, but I do not understand how they i can be held on any other charge by the United States authorities." j All the clerks in the state house gath- j ered on the steps and awaited , the ar- i j rival of the men. One of them wonder- ed what they would be fed upon and waa j told that the Populist office holders ware j expected to furnish food. All were dis- i appointed when the report was circulated j that the men might not be taken out of i the cars and that they might be carried ; over to Leavenworth. j SANDEKS IS PHOTOGRAPHED. Comes to the Rear of the Car and Speeches Are Called For. At 2 o'clock this afternoon' General Sanders came out on the back platform of Waggener's private car and a photo grapher took his picture. A large crowd, gathered, and soon cries of "Speech!" "Speech!" were given. General Sanders bowed and said: "I would like to speak to you, but I am under arrest and in charge of the United States marshal, and am afraid I would not have the right to." An old man in the crowd yelled, "God bless you." There was some cheering. JUDGE FOSTER ON THE AFFAIR. Says There's No Case Against the Mn in the Federal Court. Federal Judge C. G. Foster was seen this noon at his home, 1035 Harrison street,, by a Journal reporter. Judge Foster does not read the morning paper aDd did not know the "wealera" had been captured. "This is a very serious state of affairs," the judge observed. "If these are all honest men out of employment it indi cates a very grave wrong somewhere. But if these men who are stealing- traitis are not willing to work they should be dealt with by a very strong hand. "The stealing of a train and bringing stolen property into the state, these offenses alone, 'do' not constitute any cause of. action in a federal court. It belongs to the state courts. In order to have the case come within the jurisdic tion of the federal courts the men must have interfered with the United States mails or violated the interstate commerce law or some other act of congres. " I don't know whether the case will come before me or not. 1 hope not in my present condition. They must first be given a preliminary hearing by United States Commissioner Wagener as in any other criminal case. If they are bound over to my court they must give bond for their appearance or go to jail. It is possible that the case may come before me on application of the men for writs of habeas corpus to secure their release." CLEM ENS' SERVICES OFFERED. He Will Take the Case of the Co mm on - wealers if Nesd Be. G. C. Clemens, "champion of the op pressed" and general solicitor -of those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, today told a Journal reporter that he was willing to volunteer his profes sional services free of charge to the Coxeyites who may be prosecuted on any criminal charge. . "I am willing to take their case," he said, "because ther e is no ground upon which they cai be triei' in a federal court. They have not delayed one par cel of mail. " If any mail has been ob structed the railroad company are-the ones who have done it, aud they are the once who ought to go to jaiL But of course they won't be prosecuted jails were not built for railroad men. "Kansas is a sovereign state and the federal government has no authority on earth to interfere in this matter," THE CHARGE AGAINST BANDERS Will Be Given Their Hearing Before U. 8. Commissioner Wagoner. United States Commissioner E. A. Wagener is the one before whom J. S. Sanders and his 500 followers will be given their preliminary heating. Gen eral Manager II. G. Clark of the Mis souri Pacfic is the complaining witness against the accused men, and the war rant waa issued by E. A Wagener. A copy of it is as follows: "iL G. Clark of lawful age, being first duly sworn, deposes and says that J. S. Sanders, John Doe, Richard Roe and five hundred othera whose true and full names are unknown, did on or. about the 10th day of May, 1894, at the county of Scott, state of Kansas, in the district aforesaid, unlawfully, knowingly and willfully obstruct and retard the Missouri Pacific Railroad company, a corporation and common carrier, then and there as such engaged in carrying United States mail through tne state of Kansas under its contract with the United States government.

May 11. Hon. William Owens, Col. Breckinridge's opponent, ir to speak in Lexington some day next week, not yet decided upon. The women of this ' country have conceived the idea of emphasizing their protests against Breckinridge' can didacy by personally joining in making this meeting a big ovation for Owen. The eight boxes at the opera house are to be filled witth represen tative women of the Blue Grass region, who have heretofore taken no public in terest in politics, and the body of the house will have large delegations of women. It is possible the action of tho women may result in turning the meet ing1 into a popular protest against Breck inridge's candidacy rather than straight out Owens meeting. The women are so thoroughly aroused that they are withdrawing patronage from merchants favorable to Col. Breck inridge and in tieveral instances old fam ily physicians have been dismissed !e caose of their sympathy' for the Ashland district congressman. The bitterness is growing every day.
