SHIVERED- BETWEEN BITES Under Distressing Conditions the Grand Army Starts for Washington. COXEY'S ' COMMONWEALERS'COLD ' COMFORT I'lrnty of < ! no l I'ooil AVim I'rovldril nn < l tlio Jlcn Only Ornmblo llccmiflo Tliry Wrrn Nut Knlrrlnlncil nt the Hotel * with Their Ixndr ? . CANTON , 0. , March 2C. Contrary to ex pectations the twenty-five women , wives and daughter's of people's party men of this city , did not turn up at the camp grounds of the Commonweal army on account of the weather , anil consequently the men were obliged to hustle for themselves as far as their breakfast was concerned. At C o'clock In the morning the camp was turned Into n veritable Valley Forge. Small groups of men could bo seen shivering In every limb , trying to obtain shelter from the freezing blasts which canto from the west. Two- thirds of the men who started with the army had taken lodging In the city prison , but at an early hour thny began to gather at the grounds to get their rations. Some difficulty was experienced In getting men who could use the cooking utensils to ad vantage , but finally at the cast side of the tent gasoline stoves were set up and the morning meal commenced. The donation , which consisted of one do/en boiled hams , 200 loaves of bread , five bushels of potatoes , baked beans and an abundance of other eatables , were soon utilized , and soon every body was thoroughly sotlftllcd as far as his stomach was concerned. Fortunately tlio abundance of supplies prevented the tramps from getting Into any altercations. Many of the men were heard to grumble about Mr. Coxcy taking lodgings at the host hotel and were of the opinion that ho should take a dose of his own medicine. A number were Interviewed at the city Jail last night In regard to what they would do In case provisions were not furnished along the road , and each and every one said ho would nuiUo a' raid on the farmers. The most noticeable thing was the absence of anybody to command the much shattered forces. Carl Brown did not arrive upon the scene until 10-30 o'clock , when he also took a room In n prominent hotel. Once upon the ground his orders to the men were after the style of a circus tent man , but the men were slow In obeying orders. Horses and men , who had bunked together during tlio night , were huddled In small groups , otideavorlng to keep warm while waiting for ( tlio temporary cooks to prepare their break fast. fast.At At 10:30 : preparations were made to get dinner and camp was struck so that the army was on the road at 12. Stark Siding , ono mile cast of this city , a favorable , p.ice ) for a rendezvous for tramps , added a new squad , numbering about fifty , to the army. Mr. Coxey , who It Is claimed Is financially embarrassed , and has been given until March 28 to settle an Indebtedness of $24,000 , seems to bo much worried over the affair , and to verify the rumor , a number of populists of tlio city have Issued a circular to the citizens of. the United States asking them to contribute to help him pay his debt. i The appeal urges immediate relief for Mr. Coxcy that ho may lift thu mortgage. i which wan Incurred through his purchase of tlio famous horse Acolyte , for which he , ogrccd to pay $10,000. Contributions made this morning amounted to $1.50 and the prospects are not very flattering In this locality for Coxey's relief. The Commonweal was on the march ahortly after noon , fully 200 strong , and ex pect to arrive at Louisville , 0. , their next Mop , at ! o'clock. P1TTSUURO , March 20. An attachment was Issued today by B. M. Everson of this city against General J. S. Coxey , commander of the Commonweal. The claim Is for $000 , for irilll supplies. Sheriff Richards will send < 16iutlos to the border of the county to meet General Coxoy and escort him to the sheriff's office , where ho will bo required to glvo ball In the sum of $1,500 or remain here. The company organized In the Eighteenth ward of this city to meet Coxey has been disbanded. SALEM , 0. , March 20. An officer , who was covering the route for the Pennsylvania authorities , claims that Coxey will likely cross the Pehnsylvanla line with at least 3,500 men. He learns that at least half of the Ohio recruits will go into the army carrying firearms. HA55ELTON , Pa. , March 20.

Mr. Hamilton says he will not start from Denver with less than 1,000 men and Is confident of leaving Colorado with B.OOO. SAN ANTONIO , Tex. , March 20. The Southern Pacific officials have received word that the United States Industrial army of 700 men was put off the trains at a siding near Flnlay station on the El Paso division nnd that trains were run through without stopping. The "army" broke the lock on n switch causing the next eastbound train to take the siding. The men Jumped on the cars and were taken to Flnlay , where they were tied up pending orders. The train will stay there , as the company has decided not to carry the men. The men will soon starve out. Tlmy Will Ilittn to Wnlk. DENVER , March 20. "General" Hamil ton's Denver contingent of Coxcy's army will have to walk out of town unless they pay their fares. It was announced nt last night's meeting that the Santa Fo would bo called upon to furnish a train for the pilgrims. At the Santa Fo olilco It was said today that the company had refused to furnish a train to the Callfoinla division of the army and would undoubtedly repeat Its refusal should * the Denver contingent jnako Its promised demands. The other roads will also decline to glvo free trans portation. _ UiilliiH * Contrllmtlim. DALLAS , Tex. , March 20. A local group of twenty men -has been organized here to Join Coxey's army.

BOULEVARD. Clmngr * In thn Ilontp DUt-unprd Ilcforo the 1'nrk Honed Ye'trrtlny. Illds for the six little cottages In Riverside park were not openedat the meeting of the park board yesterday afternoon , as Secretary Doane had been Informed by City Attorney Connell that the occupants , through over sight , had not been made parties to the con demnation proceedings and notified to vacate. This fact would make the sale of the buildIngs - Ings Illegal , as the board has not yet secured legal possession , As soon as the board gets possession the buildings will bo rcadvcrtlncd for sale. A number of the people who have been living In these houses were present at the meeting. Two petitions were presented In regard to the route of the southeast boulevard. One referred to the mooting held by Interested parties on Saturday night at Tenth and Han- croft street and asked that the rottto of the boulevard he cjianged In a manner that has been outlined In The Ueo. Mr. S. J. Gordon ppoko In behalf of the proposed change from the original route. Ho admitted that the change would bo a benefit to the property owners who had signed the petition , but , In addition to this , his rotito was fully as pic turesque and would cost the taxpayers con siderably less. The line Mr. Gorddn sup. ported commences between Eighth and Ninth streets on Dancroft , and almost parallels the original route. Ills chief points were that this route would glvo n 200-foot boule vard Instead of a 100 , would save the tax payers $10,000 and would glvo employment to n largo number of laborers while the same waa being constructed. Ho contended that no litigation would follow If his route was agreed upon , whllo. If the other route Is established. It would be different. His pe tition for a change was signed by Charles Kaufman , Herman Kountzo and others. Mr. Charles Elgutter spoke In boh.ilf of the original route. He said that the southsldrra wanted the very best and mose picturesque route that could he established. Ho be lieved that the board had already selected such a route , and that the majority of the people living In that locality and owning property there wore of the same opinion. It was not a question with him -as to which route would benefit his property moat , he wanted the very best and most sightly louto for the boulevard. Mr. Patrick and one or two others spoke for and against the proposed change , and Dr. Miller announced that on Wednesday morning next the members of the board would meet at the corner of Tenth and nan- croft streets and go over both routes. If any new suggestions had arisen since the time the board made Its original selection , ho was certain that the members of the commis sion would willingly entertain them and see that Justice was meted out to all parties who are Interested. The proposed change In the route of the southwest boulevard was then taken up. In a communication , Mr. Crelghton offered to donate 100 feet on one side of the roadway from Thirty-second avenue south of Martha to Arbor If Mr. Kyman would donate 100 feet on the opposite side. Mr. Lyman said ho would , In so farias the property extended , and It Is quite likely that this arrangement will be consummated In the end. OMAHA DETECTIVE FORCE.

"It Is not generally known that an Insurance anco against destitution exists In Germany The worklngman pays one-third of a pre mlum to Insure himself and his family against sickness , accident , Incapacity of oh age , etc. HU employer also pays one-thin and the government pays the other so the workman Is thus practically penslonei against abject poverty. This plan has beet the cause of checking a large amount o Immigration. Wages arc lower In Germany than they are here , but the cost of living is cheaper. "The removal of restriction against Ameri can pork has proved beneficial to the em pire. The recent tieaty with Russia Is at Indication of the good feeling that exists between the czar and Emperor William The people In Germany do not attach nn > significance to the recent demonstrations In France , when the Russian naval officers were dined wlncd and worshiped by Parisians. "The recent reconciliation between Em peror William and Bismarck was received with popular approval by the people. The emperor Is highly esteemed by the masses and all talk of a socialistic revolt is totally unfounded. It Is only the work of a few Irresponsible agitators. Germany , I am happy to Elate , has a protective tariff which fosters tlio industries of that great empire. The monetary problem has recently occu pied the attention of the government. It Is clearly evident that some legislation , doubt less favorable to sliver Interests , will soon be enacted. A committee has' been ap pointed and will report on the subject to the Reichstag. What the latter will do I can not definitely state , but the members of the committee are loyal to the goxernmcnt pol icy and the majority of the committee are , to my knowledge , strong advocates of silver Interests. I have no doubt that this com mittee will report favorably for flee coinage of silver or an Increase In coinage of the white metal. It U evident that the country needs more silver. From sentiment I have heard expressed on the subject , I have every reason to believe that another International monetary conference will be held in the near future and that Germany will be ably rep resented up"n that occasion.

I desire to state In this connection that I am not here for that purpose , and that in my opinion there Is no electrical company which would build a plant and operate the fl.amo under the provisions of the new ordinance.

The ordinance , ns It stands , grants permission to Install and operate nn electric light plant for such length of time us the council may dictate.
