COXEY'S CONCEIT. Novel Scheme of aa Ohio Roads Advocate. Good RESULT OF Largo Whiutt LOW PRICES. Thulr Oriiwer* Holding Crop*—Griiln I'\M| to H<>£B. WASHINGTON, March 12.—The statistical returns of the department of agriculture for March consist principally of estimates of the distribution of wheat and corn, the amounts remaining in farmers' hands, the proportion of merchantable oorn and th« average prices of both the merchantable and unmer- chantable. The returns of correspondents of the department throughout the great wheat surplus states indicate a new factor in tho consumption of wheat, viz., the feeding of wheat to hojfs and other stock, a fact due, as declared, to tho unprecedentedly low orices, the claim being made that this mode of disposing of the cereal IB profitable an compared to marketing- it for human food. Thu returns also indicate that a con siderable proportion of the wheat now in farmers' hands comes from crops prior to that of Ib'JS. and especially from the crops of lS!ll-'92. Such stocks have been held principally by luryo growers, tiotuo damage to such stores is reported from Michigan and Washington. The indicated r stock of wheat in fanners' hands is 114,OUO,OUO bushels or 3S.8 |.>er cent of tho volume of the crop of 18a:i. This is nearly 21,000,000 bush- I els loss than the estimate for March 1 I last year and nearly 20,000,000 less j than the average of tho past oipht years. The amount remaining in farmers' hands in the eleven principal wheat growing states is about 73,000,000 bushels, or 08.8 per cent, of tho amount in producers' hands in the country at large. The corn in producers' hands, as estimated, aggregates 58!),000,000 bushels, or Stf.4 per cent, of the crop of 18U8. This proportion is less than for any year in the past five, except that of 1891. Tho aggregate of corn In farm ers' bands in the surplus states of Ohio Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri Kansas and Nebraska is 01. t per cent of that in farmers' hands in the entire country, being in quantity SOO.OOO.OOO bushels. The proportion of mer chantable corn is 8S.6 per cent, of a present average value of 84.9 cents par bushel. The unmerchantable averages 33.3 cents per bushel.

WASHINGTON, March 12,—When the Pollard-Brockinridge case was resumed the courtroom was brightened by th« presence of a group of fashionable young women backed by a row of solemn matrons, all brought thither by curiosity. The roll oi jurors was called and wax no sooner finished than Ju'dge Bradley remarked: "Mr. Marshal, I wish'you would request these ladles to vacato the seats unless they are witnesses In the cone." Thereupon Marshal Wll son's portly form loomed up bsfore tho women, waving them.xtut. They went with clouds of disappointment over spreading their faces and, such a babbling of auger that the judge was obliged to rap sharply for order. Few spectators were left after this exodns, but among them wore half a dozen ol the defendant's fellow members of con gress. Much of the time of the session was taken up in wrangling over legal points. Claude Francis testified to having seen evidences of a more than paternal interest on the part of Col. Brcckln ridge for the plaintiff. Another witness testified that in 1888 she attended Miss Pollard at a convent in Washington, when a male child was born. Mis* Pollard, hearing this statement, attempted to leave the room but fainted. STRICKEN IN CHURCH. Suo'den l)mth of K»T, A. T. Wood, a Pioneer In N«br»ik».

Coxey, of this city, who is a "good roads" advocate, announced that he intended to muster his band of followers and start for Washington overland and demand that congress issue 9500,000,000 legal tender notes for road improvements.

Easter Sunday (if the authorities do not put a stop to the proceedings) the army, or "commonweal, 1 ' as Coxey calls it, will leave Massillon at noon for Washington. Their first stop will be at Reedurban, * miles out on the pike, where they will stop for refreshments and organization. Canton will V>e reached by evening, where a mass meeting is to be held on the public square. The army will then bivouac, probably on the fair grounds. Then the line of march will be through Stark and Columbiana counties into Beaver Kails, Pa,, where, Coxey announces, the unarmed army will spend th« first Sunday on its way to the national capital.
