"General" J. U. Coxey, of Massllla Ohio, the coimnauder-in-chlef of t: Commonweal movement of 1893, ai the late Populist candidate for govern c_- of Ohio, dropped Into Wheeling la ST? night on business connected with h stone quarrying business. He attend the performance of lloyt's "A Conten cd woman" and talked to an Intel gsncer reporter.

He will spend the winter ai early spring in the south, und If the to Is self-supporting he intends to extei w his operations to the tvesi und nor next summer. Ah to the duration this enterprise, the "general" said th to would depend upou the eiicourugeme lfcy given him by the public. [Le* The generul" saS's thi? panic or 18 too was not brought about by the fall on silver that followed th? repeal of t: Sherman'silver purchasing act. Th panic began In the spring and the She man act was not repealed until the ft lowing November. In the meantime tl Co. government was purchasing Its mont ? ly quota of sliver und adding $4,000,0 a month to the silver currency. The real cause laid In the industri I suspension which decreased the nur ber of producers from 12,000,000 to 8,00< 000 and decreased earnings by the su of $tl,000,000. The restoration of com dence, he says, will be a matter many years ami In the meantime tl people want Immediate relief.

For this work he proposes that town cltlp.s and states issue non-lntere ! national government and upon whl( the government will issue paper cu renpy for th*? payment of the va amount of labor he would employ.
