The Commonweal Leader Apparently Makes But Little Impression on the Members of the Committee. HIS PETITION. N, May 9.—There was an unusually large attendance of members of the house committee on labor at itb meeting, drawn there largely by the expectation that Coxuy would be in attendance to speak on Representative MeGann's resolution for the appointment of a joint committee of tho senate and house to investigate the cause of the prevailing Industrial depression. The general was early at the capitol, in company with Col A. E. Redstone, of Washington, Mr. Coxey presented a petition from the commonweal army that he and Carl Browne be permitted to address the committee in behalf of the Coxey bills for construction of good roads and for the issue of non-interest bearing bonds. Coxey supplemented the reading of his petition with a brief statement apd then answered questions put to him by members of the committee. There are, he eaid, billions of dollars' worth of improvements throughout the country to be made, and there are millions of men to make them. There is but one thing standing in the way and that is money. The passage of his two bills would solve the industrial depression and set all men at work. He asked for 98 per cent, of the people the same privileges as are enjoyed by 1 per cent.—the national banking class, who alone are represented in congress. Mr. Ryan (dem., N. Y,) pressed Mr. Coxey for proof of this assertion. "Have you any showing to make, any proofs to offer that you represent 99 per cent, of tho people?" asked Mr. Ryan. "No," said Coxey, aftsr thinking a moment; "I don't claim that." Members of the committee then began to ply Coxoy with questions, to most of which he made rambling answers. He soon retired. I. E. Dean, a member of the executive committee of the Farmers' Alliance, followed with a recital of the depressed condition of labor, The Resolution Adopted- The committee, by a vote of 8 to 2, adopted the McGann resolution, which Mr. McGann will offer in the house. Messrs. Dunn (N. J.) and Apsley (Mass.) who voted nay, may present a minority report. Allen's Resolution Culled Up. WABniNOTOH, May 9.—In the senate the resolution offered last Monday by Senator Allen (pop., Neb.) for the appointment of a select committee, to investigate the police assault upon and arrest of Coxey, Browne and Jones in the capitol grounds on tho 1st of May, was laid before the senate and Senator Allen made an argument in support of it He had expected, he said, that tho senior senator from Ohio (Senator Sherman) would have introduced a resolution looking to the investigation of that "outrage." But, as the senator from Ohio had taken no such steps, he (Senator Allez.) had been moved to do so. He had deemed it his duty, although it was not a pleasure by any means, to offer a resolution for the purpose of having a thorough and complete investigation of the remarkable scene. He (Senator Allen) had taken various occasions to say that with the purpose of the Coxey movement he had not, and never had had, the slightest sympathy. He did not believe that it would be wise for congress to appropriate money for the construction of highways in the states. That portion of. Coxey's mission found no sympathy with him: But he had to deal with him and with the unfortunate and perhaps misguided men who accompanied him, simply in the light of American citizens coming to the capitol of the nation for the pnrj-ose of peaceably petitioning congress to redress grievancea Hnerman Hpeafcs. • , After Senator Allen had spoken for upward of an hour Sherman arose and replied briefly. He said th«e was nothing in the claim of Senator Allen that the right of petition was being denied. He said he was a»ked by a citizen of Ohio if he would introduce Mr. Coxey's petition, and he said he would willingly introduce it, if couched in respectful language, and that he would also introduce Mr. Coxey's bills, although he did. not indorse a word of them, Mr. Coxey, Senator Sherman said, declined to accept this, but said he would read his petition from the steps of the capitol, although he knew it was against the l*w. To say that congress had not the power to protect itself and its property was BO feeble a pretense that Senator Sherman said he was surprised any senator would risk his. stand- inir in his profession ty asserting It. The attempt to create a prejudice against the military or civil .force was, undeserving of anyone. Senator.

More Trouble In tho Coke Region-Four Men Jloaten. CoNtniLLSvrr.LK, Pa., May 9.—Victor Harburg and three other workmen at Hill Farm plant were beaten almost to death at 4 o'clock a. m. The attack was made so suddenly that the deputies were unable to protect the men before the mob had swooped dowu on them and had beaten tho men into insensibility. According to promise the Hill Farm plant was fired up at 3 o'clock a. m. with a large force of men under a strong guard of deputies. Shortly after 4 o'clock everything was quiet and the deputies left the works, A few minutes later the strikers wore astir, and armed with clubs, stones and coke forks, quietly advanced under cover of darkneai. The men at work did not see them until they were close at hand. Most of them fled for their lives, Harburg and his three companions were surrounded by the strikers before they knew It. They attempted to defend themselv.es, but were soon knocked senseless. The sharp report of a Winchester announced the approach of the deputies, whereupon the mob fled in every direction, closely followed by the deputies, who fired repeatedly. Several of the strikers were wounded but none dangerously and none of them were captured. There is great excitement at Dunbar. The company has again announced they will operate the plant at all hazards. MILLS CREATES_A SENSATION. .poolaros He Will Not Vote for Certain Tariff 11111 Amendments. •' WASHINGTON, May, 9.—In . the senate the'debate on the tariff bill reached its climax of excitement when Senator Mills (dero., Tex.) declared that a change has come over the spirit of the situation since his declaration that he stood between th> devil and the deep sea. He was a little nearer the devil, (the McKinley act) than when he made that speech. The bill before the senate was not the Wilson bill, but one which ought to pear the name of the senator from Maryland (Senator Gorman), or the name of the senator from Ohio (Senator Brlce). He did not intend to vote for a single one of the amendments changing 'ad valorem duties to specific duties. He was humiliated at finding the bill turning nearer and nearer to the McKinley act in tho rates of duty and in the amount of robbery to be inflicted upon the people. There was a very little margin of difference between the two bills now; but so long as it was a little better than the McKinley act, he would vote for it But he warned the democrats who were responsi ble for the measure as it now stood to stand out and assume the responsibility. GERMANY STRIKING BACK.
