Washington, May 2. Tho march ot

Htarteil from Miwsilllon, O., on Easter
Sunday, ended Tuesday by tho Interrup
Hon of tlio police Fortunately thoro
were no casualties ntul Tuesday evening
General Coxey addressed his burlosquo
nrmy In camp, whllo Marshal Carl
Browno slept in a prison colt and Chris
topher Colutnbua Jones, leader of the
Philidclphia communo and tho comedian
of tho movement endeavored to appro
priate a sharo of tho martyrdom in nn
adjoining cell. Tho performance en
acted within tho shadow of tho capltol
Tuesday is without n counterpart in tho
memory of Washingtonians.
Moro than 200 city polico reinforced
tho Capitol officers. Detectives from sov
ernl cities wero sprinkled through the
crowd, for tho concentration of lawless
local characters gave just grounds for
apprehensions of troublo apart from the
preeenco of tho Coxeyites. It was short
ly after I o'clock when tho army halted
in tho public street south of tho Capitol
grounds. Its fi-milo march down from
Brightwood through tho 'principal streets
of tho city had been witnessed by thou
sands. Thoro wcro 000 men in line, Mrs.
Anna L. Diggs, tho Populist agitator of
Kansas, in a baronchc; Coxey's 17-year-old
daughter, in white, on n cream col
ored steed, representing tho Goddess of
Peace; Carl Browno ou a great gray
Percheron stallion; Jacob S. Coxey, his
wife, tho infant Legal Tcndor Coxoy, to
gether in another carriage; Virginia La
Vnllete, said to bo an actress, on horse
back, draped in an American flag as tho
Philadelphia commnno's Goddess of
Peace; tho unemployed carrying whito
flngs of pcaco on staves and tho nonde
script banners, setting forth tho doc
trines of reincarnation, good roads and
enmity to plutocrats, sprinklod through
Crowd Followoil Ilrowno.
Marshal Browno halted tho procession
thero in the street, wulkod back to
Coxoy's carriage, tho general kiBsed his
wife, then tho two moving spirits of tho
affair forced their way over tho plaza to
tho Capitol steps, their men, acting un
der orders, standing in their tracks.
After Coxey and Browno passed, a yell
ing crowd of several hundred mon, most
of them following Browne, conspicuous
bocauso of his unique costume. Tramp
ing and tearing Jits way through tho
costly shrubbery tho mob went, whllo
tho squad of mounted polico, which had
headed tho parado, dazed for a momont
by the unexpected move, charged reck
lessly into their midst.
Coxoy was fronted by tho polico as ho
took off his hat to speak on tho steps, and
his demand for his constitutional rights,
as ho called it, being rofusod, thrust
upon them a printed protest, which
proved to bo a well worded opitomo of
Populistic doctrines. Moanwhilo Carl
Browno was being literally dragged by
tho collar of his coat through tho crowd
towards tho nearest station after ho hod
inado a fight to retain his bonnor.
Mot For Five Minute.
Two polico captains, a lieutenant and
sergeant thrust mlldraannored Coxoy,
without violence, back across several
hundred foot of humanity. Mounted
polico wero forcing their horsos anions
the people, mnny of them cracking thoir
clubs over tho heads of tho nearest per
sons, woinon wero shrieking In terror,
men wero yelling norcoly, somo wero
.being knocked down and trampled npon.
For fivo minutes thero was riot in the
section of tho mob in front of tho cast
stops, which occupied about an aero of
tho asphalt. Then tho two agitating
spirits having been removed and half a
dozen particularly belligerent mon hav
ing boon takon in by tho polico tho dis
turbance was quollod without serious i in
juries to a singlo person. Somehow tho
army was started off towatd its now
camp, between doublo lines of police,
followed by a mob of thousands, choor
ing liko demons for Coxoy and Browne.
Within an hour tho Capitol grounds had
almost regained thoir normal quiet with
only a fow hundred people strolling
Coxey Has No Complaint to Make.
"I havo no complaint," Coxoy said,
"to mako as far ns the polico aro con-
corned. They treated mo with groat
consideration, but thoy hod to carry out
tho law, oven if it was an unjust ono.
My speech, howovor, at tho Capitol is
over and I shall not again attempt it. It
would bo no uso. Tho American eaglo
did a good deal of squealing, but that
was to uo expected. Tho authorities
pinched him rather hard. He'll havo his
say. howovor, sooner or later,"
Tho most serious chapter of the affair
for Washington, is tho problem of what
is to bo dono with tho army, romains un
solved. Coxoy has no intention of lead
ing his recruits away. Uo still declares
that tho movement has jnst begun, that
they will stay hero until congress pro
vides for them by passing his bills.
