W. Haggard went south to spotid a day with Kelly's army. He joined them at Adalf and left them ttt HtUart after* 24 hours as a common wealefi He has furnished our readers with a lively sketch of what he saw, answering such questions as would be asked by everybody. It is a very entertaining, and if we may judge by other reports, accurate account of the "army:" Before a recruit is admitted to the ranks of the commonweal he is taken before General Kelly. There he faces a man dressed in dark clothes, with military overcoat and high collar which is always kept turned up, and Wearing a blue cloth cap. In appearance General Kelly is almost the twin brother of Frank Benjamin of this place. Beside him is a tall, dark-complexioned, nervous man dressed in a long Prince Albert with the silver eagles of a United States colonel on his shoulders. This is Speed, Who commands the Sacramento contingent and has caused Kelly so much trouble. His men are almost unanimous on the subject of capturing a train. Next in importance is Col. Baker, a short man With a stubby mustasche, and wearing glasses, He says very little, as his inouth is usually full of tobacco. • These three men conduct the examination of the recruit about as follows: Your name? Any trade? Where have you worked last? Are you dissatisfied with the present condition of things; and do you believe in the purpose of the commonweal? These questions answered, the recruit, if accepted, is assigned to a company in the camp. One of the first illusions, gained by reading the newspapers, concerning the military discipline is quickly dispelled. They are controlled and moved from place to place much in the manner of handling a crowd at a country fair, crowded around, ordered to "keep back, gentlemen," etc. In the camp at present there are close to 1,000 men. Most of these have blankets and quilts, and to their stock others are constantly being added. There are but two tents in the camp, one of which is the commissary department; the other is used as headquarters. Trenches' are dug by small groups of men, and over and in these ;he meals are prepared. Following is the Ml of fare at u certain breakfast of recent date: Beefsteak, bacon, spare ribs, eggs, sauer kruut, baked beans, light bread, two linds of crackers, milk, coffee, and sugar, and all of these in abundance. Breakfast aeing over, all socks, shoes, and clothing which have been contributed are now issued to the men, and if wagons of sufficient number have been gathered the stores are .oaded and the work of getting the men nto companies begins. When all is ready Irst comes a double carriage containing the ;wo ladies, who have been with the army since they loft Omaha; following them the ^rmy straggles out in companies of from 25 ;o 80*, each commanded by a captain, and ,cept about the width of a street apart. Fully one-third of these men have been presented with roosters, which they secure with a string, and they perch on the arm or shoulder of the men, where they ride all day perfectly content. One man has a largo duck ornamented with green ribbons. This bird is frequently cheered as they pass down the streets. The drinking cup, if one is an aristocrat, or the can, if one is not so fortunate, is carried by the side, so- cured by a string passed over the shoulder. Over the shoulder is also passed a stout club; but this is the only weapon carried, unless one may be in the possession of Kelly. I do not believe there is a single fire arm in the camp. Lust to leave the camp is Kelly, on his black thoroughbred riding horse—a perfect beauty. This horse was presented to him at Omaha and divides the attention of the crowd with Kelly himself. At the time he received this gift he had never ridden horse back, and when ho departs from his usually dignified gate and rides at a gallop, much amusement ensues in the ranks of the army, for he is not always sure of returning to the saddle at the exact place he loft it. Immediately upon leaving the town behind, all order vanishes, it is each man for himself, in the good old vagabond style. A largo number take to the railroad track; some to the wagon road; and what I could never understand, some of them march through the fields. They are soon scattered In crowds of four, six, or twenty, very seldom over t\venty and more often the divisions contain loss than a half dozen; while, plodding along by himself, goes the old timer. They lie down by every hay stack and sleep under each hedge; and, at times in the day, are strung over 10 miles of country. A part of thorn gather in for dinner, some having provided themselves with provisions in the morning travel on or sleep by the way. Having reached the town at which he proposes to encamp, Kelly halts at tho outskirts and waits for the army to come up. If they have all straggled in before 0 o'clock ho marches in; if not, he waits until that time, then forming his men four abreast, with a bugle at tho head, into tho city he goes. Here lie is usually met by tho citizens with the supplies, which his advance agents have collected. These agents, I am told, have ceased to request and now como very near to making demands for provisions, wagons, etc. The army goes at once into equip in some grove or park designated by the committee, This park is left in the morning completely ruined, cut full of cooking trenches, tho grass trampled out of sight by 2,000 boot heols, and more destructive still, for before the march is begun each morning the army is supplied with fresh clubs, cut from any timber that is handy. The ladies do not remain in camp, but are entertained by the citizens, I was told that when at Adair they spent the night at the home of a banker. These women dress entirely in bltick and to all appearances are quiet and ladylike. Their riding causes wide-spread dissatisfaction throughout the army. I have read that Aylesworth, president of Drake University, had founq. the men reading Latin and had seen the Arena, North American Review, etc., in camp. I searched carefully for these signs of culture and found that the only study pursued was the manipulation of a deck of cards, at which considerable expertness was displayed. If the Arena or North American Review entered camp I am convinced that they came in dismembered form and were wrapped around chewing tobacco. The crowd of men whom I visited are more interested in free transportation, free meals, and anything else that may be on the free list than tuey are in literature. In fact they are more unanimous as to the free list than are even the democratic party. The army is made up of four classes: First, the leaders, who, I believe, &re in for notoriety and money. Kelly is a born leader of the class with which be is associated. Speaking in a low monotone be moves among bis men, who are constantly around Eim in swarms, and bears each complaint, request, or suggestion. In talking with a person his band is eojjstantly in motion, moving up or down the sleeye or other part of the clothing of the p,ersp» addressed. Strangest of all be is«iww J8ww ill §p Mfe Hgjj OB big feet, seein- tum wstos assumes command no one' leaVeS t the catop Without a pass from Kelly, Nothing seems to ruffle ofr disturb the serenity of this man. Who has the cafe and' fespettsibllity of 1,000 vagrants on his hands. White,in cam* 1 saw this man Ueceive a Contribution 6f gTfrom a citizen with a/'God speed" to the cause-, also $8 ffofti a farmer, Kelly has absolute control of this money. He has been offered $1,600 for the hofse he fides, If he will bring him to Chicago. Considering that Kelfy himself will "be worth big money to a museum, and that the horse was given to him, one is led to believe that no mattec how It all ends at Washington, Kelly can return in a Pullman across the country, over which he led his Second come the enthusiasts, a small portion of the whole. Who, I believe, are sincere in their belief that much tfood will result from a visit to the capltol. Next come the < boys who are going home. They are the intelligent part of the army. Talking with a number of them their stories seem to be much the same. One will do for the lot', "I was a cutter In a large tailoring establishment in Philadelphia, became dissatlsfid, Went to BUtteCity, and from there to the coast: work after a while was not to be had." When asked why be did not tramp it home he answered, " There is some pretty hard country to cross, coming erfst, and if I traveled alone I would be liable to arrest for vagrancy. This army was being organized, I joined It and am a hero, well fed, as you can see, and am perfectly safe from arrest. I want to work; but not until I reach my old home. When I reach that portion of the country I Intend to leave Kelly." I believe this to be the intention and aim of this class of the army. Last and largest in numbers is the element made up of "bums," pure and simple. Men who if Kelly cried "On to Quebec" would go at once if fed and ;ransported; men Who are not looking for work and do not want it. They are with the army because they get better food and are surer of that and protection with the army than when traveling alone. I do not mow whether it was on account of their nability to procure it or otherwise, but t did not see any liquor of any kind around ;he camp. I saw three men who were intoxicated, but they were down town. The army expected to reach Des Moines sometime Sunday. To reach this place is ;he end and aim of the entire crowd; beyond that point they are unanimous in swearing they will never walk. In politics ;hey seem to be divided, as to claiming either of the leading parties, but in principle they arc populists. In conclusion I will say that I have n'lefly given a few of the' facts that came under my observation. There is ample ground for a much longer study than I had ,ime to indulge in. I visited thorn being, jerhaps, already prejudiced against them; >ut left with my views in no wise changed; and if anything believing less in the movement. Pasturage for Stock.
