Recruited for March on' the * Capitol
in Washington-?-W ants
Bryan on Staff.
New York, April S.?The "i and 11
army" is being recruited for a
march on Washington. The object
tive is not the capture of the Na
tional Capital and neither is it de
signed to enforce reparation, terri
torial guarantees, sphres of influence
or mandatory selections. Its big
goal is popular government?self
determination as it were.
The army will compose legions
advocating the initiative and refer
endum as a part of the Federal coi
stitution. Gen. Jacob Sechler Coxey,
of Masillon, Ohio?the same Gen.
Coxey who led the Commonweal
army of unemployed to Washington
in 1S94 and was told to "keep off
the grass"?is the C. O. and gen
eral staff all rolled into one.
Gen. Coxey is not concerned with
the prohibition amendment primar
ily but the method by which it was
tacked onto the Federal Constitution
is one of the signs of the times that
has stirred him to renewed action
after twenty-five years of philosoph
ical contemplation of passing events, j
"What I do care about," he said
today, ''is the principal of popular
government. I don't care a hang
what happens to the dry amend
, ment. But it was not enacted by the
wish of the majority of the people;
it was railroaded through. Now let
us have the initiative anfl referen
dum, and if the majority of the peo
ple cf the country really want liq
uor, they can petition for having
the dry amendment submitted to a
popular vot. If the amendment is
sustained that is the last of liquor
in this country.
Gen. Coxey plans to enlist William
Jennings Bryan as a member of his
general staff.

; .According to t.be opinion of the.
InilitHry men. if; is a very ominous
fact that the British Ambassador at
?Washington said that Great Britain
,was not offering to recognize the
?Soviet government. Jf Great Britain
does not rccognize it, there is not
the slightest chance that either
France or Italy will, so that the ad

spring offensive will ho substantially
a drive to undo all the work of the !
