Jacob Coxcy In his chin-swallowing collar, which makes him look like m illustration from an ancient edition of Dickens' works. Let us respect him. rather, as citd Sen. Albcu w.

Cuxov said; "and kissed my wife goodbye. I walked up the steps, but a cordon of police said I could not make a speech there. They put two of our leaders in jail that afternoon. A week later they arrested inc. The charge was trampling the grass on the eapitol lawn. We were fined $5 each and sentenced to 'JO clays not the the mind you, I'm not saying It L>, that doesn't matter. ., The General is 92 years ol<l and he's still waging the battlo he began in 1895 when he led Coxcy's army to Washington, lie demanded then and he demands today that the government forget the high finance and, when It needs money, print some. j Tor two weeks he sat among the spectators nt the Banking and Currency Committee's hearings Into tlie proposed British loan, when all the big-shots had finished their testimony, Sen. Barkley called him as a witness and apologized for making him wait so long. Tlie white-thatched Gen. Coxcy said that was all right: he said once lie waited a year to sec the late President llnrding and when finally he col inside the white house for his apt>ointincnt, the President apologized for being 30 minitcs late. "I told him I didn't matter," the General said. "The same applies in this case." It was then that Sen. Barkley proved himself to be a true Kentucky gentleman, ire did one of the kindest, most gracious things I yet have observed in the Senate. It was lunch time. The Senate was in session. All the evidence was in. The other Sen itors were restless. Chairman Darkey ipnorcd them, ire earned m\ ever-lasting respect simply by allowing Gen. Coxey to make his speech. The General told why he believed it was a crime to collect interest on money loaned; why' he felt the solution to this country's ills coulti be found in printing money as needed. The Senator gave him close attention and, I believe, was, well-rewarded. Eventually Gen. Coxey got around to the story of his inarch upon Washington a half century ago. He led 20,000 jobless men from "Some men in Colorado sent the government grass seed for Its lawn. Some more men in Nebraska sent $15 to pay our fines, but we did spend 20 days In jail. And I never dirt walk on the government's grass." General Coxey . told then about the battles of his life-time wl(h law-makers ami financiers. When he had finished. Senator Barkicy hanked him and asked him, if t was not ioo personal, how old :ie was, Tlie General said he vvn.s 52. "I want to say that when I'm 92. I hope I'll be as vigorous In mind and body as you are." the Senator said. General Coxey had a reply lo that. By quoting It here, ami such a thing is completely out of place in a news story. 1 am attempting to emulate Senator Barklcy: You will be like me at Genera!
