G.. was mustered Into the Stat service by Col. Henry S. Cohn last night at the Llederkrans Hail. Sixth and Walnut streets. Considerable delay was caused by Inability to gain access to the armory. Qor. Bradley authorised Col. Cohn to muster In tbe company last night at tbe armory, but CoL Cohn presented his order from the Governor at the armory -about t o'clock and was met by MaJ. James P. Gregory and Adit. James B. Smith, who told him that Col. Castle-man and Mayor Weaver had decided not to open the armory. t CoL Cohn then made an announcement to the crowd of volunteers, who crowded about the armory steps far out Into the street. There was considerable murmurm; of disappointment and many i suggestion a to the causa -of this action. On man exclaimed: "Whailen has got In his work again; it's all his fault" There wa a slight disposition to resent the action by cries and exclamation. Reuben Buckley was active In the crowd and restrained the men. They wr all directed to repair to Lb McKlnley Club headquarters, on Jefferson street, between Fourth and Fifth, where a council of war was presumably -to b held. When the crowd reached the club only the original signers of th petition, were admitted to the hall. It was soon understood that CoL Cohn had telephoned to the Oovcrnnr for additional order. Meantime, about a hundred men crowded around the doors and tried to get in. About o'clock everybody waa directed to go to Llederkrans HalL CoL Cohn said he had nothing to say about th matter further than that he had not been allowed to muster tn the company at the armory, and that the Governor had authorised him to muster In the company at any place he decided upon with directions to report to him. The work of enlisting the. men was slow, but finally thirty-six men were secured. The -other fourteen on th original list were absent, probably because they'bad not heard of the change.
