Omaha, April 19.—Kelly's army of Industrials, wet, bedraggled Rnd chilled to the bone, broke csmo today and itorted from the Council Bluffs Chau tauqua grounds east. During tbe night the ranks began to swell by the arrival Irom Nevada of ftf msn under Cnpt. IC. Gorman, and today further acquisitions were made when Captain Morgan, with two companies oi Commonwealeri, suo strong, reached camp from tho west by wav of tbe Union Pacific. The objective point of today's march was Weston, IS miles east of Council Staffs. It is believed tbat a train will be eecured at Weston to carry the army to Chicago. Representatives of the Brotherhood of Engineers and Firemen promised to call on the general managers of the Chicago- Councii Bluffs lines today in Chicago to make arrangements for carrying the men east. The army will spend the night at Weston and march in the morning to Underwood, eight miles further east, where a brotherhood train will pick np the soldiers. The Com monwealora are having a hard march as the weather has suddenly turned cold and a drizzling rain ie falling. Many men are sick witb colds and threatened witb pneumonia. The real.facts about tbe presence of the militia at Council Bluffs and at Camp Kelly, near Chautauqua station, were made public in an interview with Judge Hubbsrd, attorney for the North western Railway company. While smarting under the criticisms of tbe press and public opinion, Mr. Hubbard accnowledgad that he was responsible lor the calling Out ot the ntnte troops, and used his influence with Governor Jackson for tbat purpose. Mr. Hubbard expressed himself in no uncertain lan guage, and his views ol the eituation were coincided in by Mr. Baldwin. "If these tramps and bums try to capture one of our trains tbere will be trouble," said Mr. Hubbard, "and should tbey gain possession ef a train by hook or crook or by the sympathy of our trainmen, we will ditch the train, if it destroys every car and hurts a lot of men. We will not carry these tagrants for love nor money, or be forced to by their capturing our rolling stock. In the eyes of the law they are a band of beggars, who are organized for an un lawful purpose, lo prey on the people, wbo are compelled to feed them and move them on to the next station. Why, if we were to carry this crowd ovsr Illi nois aud lowa we would be compelled to carry 10,001) more out of tbe state like tbem. Thsy would pour on the road and we could not carry nn business, and tbat we do not intend to do. Our roada were not built for charity. "This movement must bs stopped now and right here, and 1 do not think the people show good judgment in feed ing these people. There ie too much false sympathy about these meu. We have bad men among these people day and night, and they hive recognized people who have led criminal lives and served time in penal institutions who are now soldiers in Kelly's army. Do yon suppose for a rnomant that we in tend to transport such a crowd over cur lines and unload them upon the other cities along the route? This would only remove tbe peat Irom one city to nn anothsr. and under the laws of any of the states we coma rm u»ia name tor damages." "I! I were tbe governor," chipped in Mr. Baldwin, "I would place a sufficient force behind me to enforce my com mando and say to tbis man Kelly : 'Dis perse your gang or I will do it for you.' I would not let thorn march across thiß state in a body and pave the way for the hordes which he knows are preparing to follow this crowd. My idea as to the way to get rid of those men would be to divide them into parties of about 25 and send them in different directions out of the state. They should not be per mitted to go over the state preying on the people and eating them out of house and homo, and I do think the governor should not permit it." The railroad managers do not hesitate to say that these men should be starved into disbanding and thus compellod to go to work or be prosecuted under the vagrancy law. Under the auspices of tbe Knights of Labor, a largely attended ui.'.bs meeting of workingmen was held this evening at Knights ol Labor hall to diacnas means of helping Kelly's army. J. B. Shoup of the Central Labor union, presided. It was the original design to hold an open air meeting on Jefferson square but the rain prevented, As the crowd waitsd for the Knights of Labor assembly which was in session to adjourn, the workingmen shouted: "Don't mind thiß sprinkle, but remember what poor Kelly and his men endured the other night." ■ A passing hackmnti was asked to go to Council Bluffs and bring over Gov ernor Jackson. He replied he would not haul such a man ior any fee. The crowd yelled its applause and thea en tered the hall, where a number of speeches were made by local labor lead ers. Much indignation was expresred against Governor Jackson, Judge Hub bard and Sheriff Hazeu for thb treat ment of Kelly's army at their bands. It soon developed that the men were will ing to go to extreme lengths, if neces sary, to save Kelly's army irom further outrages, and when it was suggested , that Omaha workingmen go en masse to Kelly's camp to aid in capturing a train or resisting force, there were a number of cries of "Let's go tonight." Some one ssiid: "Wnat if tbe rail road companies tear up their tracks?" Tbe reply: "What's the matter with onr tearing up tbe tracks for them?" Tbe meeting then named a committer of prominent citizent to go to the Bluffs in the morning to plead with the rail ways to give Kelly a train. It was also decided that the Omaha workmen should march to the Bluffs in the morn ing to give the army whatever physical assistance it might nsod iv case in had not left by that timo. The signal for meeting was to bs the blowing of the whistle at the Union Pacific shops. It ie expected severe! thousand will go. Tbe lowa militia was ordered home this evening, and all the companies h.-.vo gone. Kelly says that if be dots not secure a train by noon tomorrow he will march his army back tn Council Bluffs. General Manager St. John of the Rock Island arrived in the city today, cad, after learning the condition of Kelly's men, advised President Ca ble by telegraph to furnißh a train to take tho men to Chicago. President Cable replied that he would not decide whether to furnish a train until morning. He expreooed warm sympathy for the men and recognize? the fact that if violence is dona railroad property will be the firt:t to suffer, Tbe Kelly army io camped tonight nt Weatoo, a station on the Book Island 10 miles east of the Bluffs. Chicago, April 10.—-Tha officials of the Chicago and Northwestern in Chicago were astonished to hear of Judge Hub bard's reported utterances. They pro nounced the idea that they would wreck a train on their own road as too ridicu lous to discuss. "Ths thing is absnrd," said Genera! Superintendent Sanborn. "I don't know where Mr. Hubbard gets his in formation, granting that he said what is alleged, hut f know snch a thing has not and will not be thought of for one (Sec ond. We are not running trains into the ditch il we know it. for any cause." Mr. Sanbora'e tone und manner showed the most extreme disgust that such a thing could hn thought possible SENATORS ALARMED. Serlnns Vlsws of tha Prospective Oath '■rii x ut Cux*»y !*•*. Washington, April 19. —Inquiry con cerning the proceedings of the executive session of the senate yesterday develops the fact that tbe senators take more ss rious view of the prospective gathering of Coxeyites and ethers here than the first report would seem to indicate. The opinion is expressed by senators, who participated in tho executive proceed ings, that in view of no precedents aud the emergency that is likely to arise, President Cleveland would be justified in issuing a ,irociamation warning the men now on tbeir way to tbe city in connection witb Coxey's movement, that the authorities will be prepared to require the strictest observance of or der. The opinion is also freely expressed in tbe senate and was advanced in trio executive session that congress cannot afford and should do nothing toward 'he euatenance of the Coxey army while bare. It is expected that if a large body nf meu should assemble, as is now re garded as probable, that they will soon bud themselves more anxious to secure food to sustain lilo than mo aey to bniid roads, and will be clamorous for an ap propriation to tbat end. Senator Cockrell, chairman of the committee on appropriations, has given notice of a speech on the Peffer resolu tion tomorrow, and whan asked today for an expression of bis views declined to talk, saying that he would probably touch upon this phase of the question in his speech. It is probable several sena tors will discuss the qusstien freely in this debate during tne morning hour to morrow. COLORADO COMMMONWEALERS. timyion'i lleutingrnt Not Yet Able to Mi-cure a Train. Denver, April 19. —Superintendent Deuel, on behrtlf ol the Union Pacific receivers, today made a demand upon Governor Waits for protection of the company's trains and property against tbe Industrie ■ who were trying ta secure transportation. The governor replied tbat euch an appeal "should come from the authorities of the com pany cr city in which the outrages occur, and then only after the military author ities declare themselves unable to pre serve order." Grayson's contingent of Coxey's army, 138 men. abandoned B.irr station today, and walked 10 miles in the mud over to Brighton station, on the Union Pacific, hopiug to capture transportation.
