WASHINGTON, May 2.—The wiarch of Coxcy's commonwnal army, which started from Massiltion. O.. on Easter Sunday, ended Tuesday by the interruption of the police. Fortunately there •were no casualties and Tuesday evening General Coxey addressed his burlesque army in camp, while Marshal Carl Browne slept in a prison coll nnd Christopher Columbus Jones, loader of the Philadelphia commune and the comedian of thti movement endeavored to appropriate a shore of the martyrdom in an adjoining cell. The performance enacted within the shadow of the capital Tuesday is without a counterpart in the memory of Washingtonians. Over the broad, smooth plaza of several acres facing the. east front of the Capitol was packed by a ciowd of men nnd women numbering 10,000. Thq Capitol steps and the porticos under the Grecian pillars were packed with people of both sexes, well dressed and most of the members of congress in the throng. An early •adjournment had boon taken by the senate on account of the death of Senator Stockbridgo, but the house, not wishing to seem to be terrorized by the demonstration, went through the semblance of a session with a handful of members. OInrcli Witnessed by Thousands. More than 200 city police reinforced the Capitol officers. Detectives from several cities were sprinkled through the •crowd, for the concentration of lawless local characters gave just 'grounds for apprehensions of trouble apart from the presence of the Coxeyites. It was shortly after 1 o'clock when the army halted in the public street south of the Capitol grounds. Its 5-mile march down from Brightwood through the principal streets of the city had been witnessed by thou- i sands. There were &00 men in line, Mrs. • AnnaL. Diggs. the Populist agitator of IKansas, in a barouche; Coxey's 17-year- old daughter, in white, on a cream colored steed, representing the Goddess of Peace; Carl Browne on a great gray Perchcron stallion; Jacob S. Coxey, his wife, the infant Legal Tender Coxey, to- .gether in another carriage; Virginia La Vallete, said to be an actress, on horseback, draped in an American flag as the Philadelphia commune's Goddess of Peace; the unemployed carrying white flags of peace on staves and the nondescript banners, setting forth the doctrines of reincarnation, good roads and enmity to plutocrats, sprinkled through •the caravan, Crowd Followc-l Rrownc. Marshal Browne halted the procession there in the street, walked back to Coxey's carriage, the general kissed his wife, then the two moving spirits of the affair forced their way over the plaza to the Capitol steps, their men, acting under orders, standing in their tracks. After Coxey and Browne passed, a yelling crowd of several hundred men, most of them following Browne, conspicuous because of his unique costume. Tramping and tearing ^its way through the costly shrubbery the mob went, while the squad of mounted police, which had headed the parade, dazed for a moment by the unexpected move, charged recklessly into their midst. Coxey was fronted by the police as he took off his hat to speak on the steps, and his demand for his constitutional rights, as he called it, being refused, thrust upon them a printed protest, which proved to be a well worded epitome of Populistic doctrines. Meanwhile Carl Browne was being literally dragged by the collar of his coat through the crowd towards the nearest station after he had made a fight to retain his banner. Itiol For Vivo MInutos. Two police captains, a lieutenant and sergeant thrust mildmannored Coxey, without violence, back across several hundred i'eot of humanity. Mounted police were forcing lliuir horses amonS the people, many of them cracking their clubs over the heads of the nearest persons, women were shrieking in terror, men were yelling fiercely, some were being knocked down and trampled upon. For live, minutes there was riot in tho section of the mob in front of tho east steps, which occupied about an aero of the asphalt.

Thousand Unemployed Men Parade nnd Trauljle Follows. CLEVELAND, May a.—Seven thousand unemployed paraded the streets Thursday after listening to speeches in Monumental square. In the line were many unruly spirits. While on the Central viaduct a motorman refused to stop his train while the procession passed and the mob attacked and wrecked a car. Latei nearly 100 shots were tired over another car which was compelled to stop. Sev eral persons were knocked down during the inarch and others were injured by missiles thrown by the mob. On Pearl street another riotous scene occurred. A street car was totally wrecked by the mob and the motorman assaulted and, perhaps, fatally injured. A policeman, who was on board, drew his revolver, but before it could be used the mob closed in on hi in and he received very rough handling. Pistols were fired in every direction. Many plate glass windows were smashed and a panic en sued in the crowded thoroughfares. There were many narrow escapes, bul fortunately no one was killed outright. The police, who were early in the day massed in their various stations, were called out. In Monumental park the marchers peacefully disbanded. Iowa Crop Bulletin.

It took five Chicago and four Evauston policemen, two patrol wagons, a yelping drove of dogs and a largo number of excited citizens of Evanston, armed with clubs and stones, to bring him to earth, and then not until over 50 shots had been fired into him. The bull belonged to Frank Everts of Rosehill, and after breaking out of the barn made his way to Rogers Park. Here he sighted tho crowd at tho polling place, and his disposition immediately showed itself. Ho lowered his head and started at the crowd on tho run.
