cdfHtiftgi-rtk Win «f*t t» Stop to toes JtaiflM— Artlfi»mies Ready. . Iowa, April 30.—One hundred ftM twentyone Sacramento men were Jnisslhg'yesterday morning 1 when Kelly taassed his indiistrial army at Adnir •fdi* the inarch. The men had ns- feerted that they would walk no farther and as soon as breakfast was over they folded up their tents and silently^ prepared to steal rides. They", said they would not rejoin tho army at Sttiart, but Kelly is confident that they will come back. Sis hope lies in Des Moines, and he will reach that point as quickly as forced marches can carry hihi over country roads. He hopes to reach the capital at 3 o'clock Sunday morning. -Kelly no doubt relies Updn the federated trades and Knights of Labor for material assistance and has received positive assurance that he and his 'army will be taken crtre of. The railroad men say there will be no weakening on their part and that the men will not be given an excursion over tho country on any line leading out of Des Moines. They are massing their forces there and taking all precautions to prevent trouble. The safest prediction' to make regard• ing Des Moines is that if transportation is not furnished there will be trouble. That is as far as many of the men will walk. If a train is not furnished them they will seize one if they can elude deputy sheriffs, detectives, and possibly the militia. It has been hoped that at Des Moines the army would divide into small divisions, equally apportioned to the trunk lines cast, of which there are five, but this hope will hardly be realized. trnlon TOe., April 30.— Fifty defaties ' who came here J'kst night tinder* tfhited States Marshal Qrady and Sharif?

So has the militia. The regulars are always ready. The detective force has been increased by men from Chicngo, New York, Philadelphia and Pittsburg. All the incoming trains are being most carefully watched and suspicious characters shadowed. Detectives are at the main entrances to the city and all arrivals will be thoroughly watched until the invaders have come and gone.

DES MOINES, Iowa, April 30.— At the meeting of the city council last even ing the scheme of the citizens' com roittee to form the camp in Crocker park was unanimously vetoed and resolution passed directing the mayoi to employ as many extra police as are necessary to prevent the army stop ping inside the city limits.

All Great Northern Men Ordered to Quit Work. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., April 30.—All efforts to settle the Great Northern strike have failed and President •Debs of the American Railway union yesterday issued orders for a strike on all the Minnesota divisions of the Great Northern. This completes the strike from St. Paul to the coast. President Hill of the Great Northern again proposed his pl/ln of arbitration at the last conference between the men's committee and the road, but it was refused. President Hill is confident he has men enough to run the road, but the strikers say he is misinformed. The order to show cause why the injunction prayed for in the case of the Great Northern against Oleson and others to restrain them from interfering by force, threats or intimidation with interstate commerce on the road or with those employed to carry on interstate commerce in place of those who quit the service of the road, came on for hearing in the United .States Circuit court yesterday, Judge Sanborn presiding. L. 15. Foster stated that he had no objection to the issuance of the injunction, but asked the court what the meaning of the word "intimidation" was. The court defined it as the overaweing by threat of supsrior force, even though nothing be said indicating that force would be used, a display of force being sufficient. Mr. Foster then repeated that he had no objection to the issuance of the injunction and that he should obey it. ST. CLOUD, Minn., Apr 113d.—Freight train No. 15, the first over the Great Northern since the beginning of the strike, pulled in at 7: in yesterday. No obstruction was offered by the strikers, as they were confident the freight would not leave the St. Cloud yard, claiming that the company will not find a crew to take it out on the Fergus Falls division. No move had been made to start the train. HKUCNA.

WASHINGTON, April so. —No general business was transacted in the senate yesterday, . Mr. Harris moving as soon as the session began that the tariff bill be taken up. There was some-resistance to this plan, particularly by " Mr. Dubois, but the motion passed— 29 to 10, Mr. Dolph waived his right to the floor and Mr. Lindsay addressed*! the senate. He said the Wilson bill is not what such a measure should be, but it is infinitely better than the existing law. Tariff reform, which should be effected at once, would hasten the return of better times upon an enduring and constitutional basis. It is idle to say that an income tax can not be collected. Experience will soon make knovvn the loop-holes of escape and they will be closed, just as have been closed the loop-holes through which in the early. days of our internal revenue 'system* those who were willing to commit a perjury or fraud or both tried to escape the payment of internal taxes. It is a waste of time, he said, to combat those charges that the pending- bill is sectional or was so intended to- be. Mr. Sherman disputed the assertion of Mr. Lindsay that the strikes at. Homestead were due to the McKinley bill. Mr, Lindsay retorted that manufacturers' natural desire was to reduce wages without respect to rates of duties. Senator Cullom also addressed the senate. He said in his speech: ,.? "The initial policy and the groundwork of the enlightened universe is- protection. The civilized world has- grown out and away from barbaric free trade and has developed a very universal recognition of the protect- vo idea. Government means protection. Any government must maintain itself and must protect its pie." Senator Cullom denounced the income tax as a sandbagging proposition and then proceeded to criticise in detail the various schedules of the bill. He argued that the tariff bill should. be taken out of politics altogether and made a matter of mathematical determination and demonstration, and concluded: "It is a business question, but of course necessarily a political one, as- in it is involved the great .question of raising revenue for the support of the?government. I propose to commit to a. commission of experts the task of working out the basis upon which an equi-' table tariff act can be constructed, leaving to congress the work of enacting- such a taiffl law with all tho . facts be- J fore it as may be required in order to- secure the proper amount of revenue, and adjust wages to labor without disturbing the equity of the general schei of protection. This tariff commission.^ f properly constructed, would be able. to avoid the interminable incongruities which give so much anqoyauoe t*> the administrative branch, of the erument." Mr, Cullom spoke for two hours a.nd'/ iwenty minutes and was followed by Mr. Dolph, who gave the fifth install ' ment of his speech, Shortly after 5 o'clock Mr. Hajr? asked how much longer Senator Pol proposed to talk; he bad alrei spoken four days, Mr. Dolph said he had been in) terrupted so ranch that his speech, hu been unintentionally prolonged. Jj no one had » fixed speech for to-daj be hoped that he would be allowed tQ * have the Hooi so that he <joul4 finish by 3 o'clock.
