It Now Numbers Nearly I5O Men, and Deserters Are Few—Coxey to Visit Chicago. DESCENDED OX MAXIMO. MAXIMO, 0., March 27.—-The advance guard of the commonweal army arrived in town at 10:10 o'clock a. m. in command of Gen. Coxey. The start was made from Louisville, Ky., at 9:10 o'clock with 143 men by actual count. The growth at Louisville was fair, but there have been many desertions. The leaders are confident, however, thut as the strength of the movement increases additional recruits -will be received in, much larger numbers. The day was clear and sharp and the ground covered with several inches of snow. Pulh on to Alliance. The trip from Louisville was uneventful. Perfect discipline was the order of the day. Tho roads were excellent until 2 miles from here, when the mud became very much in evidence. The country appears undisturbed by the advance of the army, the only indication of it« passing being small knots of country folk who gather in front of their farms. After a brief rest Coxey's army left hero, going eastward at 11:10 a. in. It had been intended to remain at this place long enough to prepare the midday meal, but after a short consultation Gen. Coxey and his aids decided to push on to Alliance, where tho army will go into camp. Nothing worthy of note occurred while the party was hero. The men seemed to be in excellent spirits and were apparently enjoying tho jaunt. Fresh donations of provisions were received at Louisville and small quantities along the route from there to Maximo, and as a result the rations dealt out will probably bo increased ia quantity as well as quality. This is evidently a source of much comfort to the recruits, for they marched ojit of town with a light step and cheerful laces. 3ralHlQK"uhuT> »na cry tn*-. BU nu creditors aro cloning In on him.

FULL OF ICE. The Atlantic Is Filled with Glacial Giants, Prenderff.it to Hare tlie Adv»nt»*« of Another St»y. CHICAGO. March 27.—Patrick Eugene Prendergast will not be hanged on April 0, the date to which Judge Chet- ( lain postponed the execution. That was definitely settled during the j proceedings, although the Judge refused tp grant a further stay 61 execution at this time. The sanity hearing was continued .until April 5 at 2 p. m., ut which time Judge Dhetlain says he will take such action as may be necessary. As it will be manifestly impossible to complete the trial by the time set for the execution, both sides agree that a further stay will then bo granted, and it la understood that this will not be opposed by the state's attorney. It is also announced that Mr. Trude will appear at that trial, but there are still many who do not believe that he will, Prendergast was quieter than he has been on previous occasions in court. He interrupted the proceedings two or three times to denounce the state's attorney and proclaim that he was acting in bad faith, but was not as wild in hi. talk as usual.

WASHISOTOX, March 37.—The pension rolls will bu greatly enlarged by a decision of Assistant Secretary of tho Interior Reynolds just announced.

OTHERS BEMMED IN. NEW YOKK, March 27.—The rouU usually taken by west-bound steam- Bhipa at this soason is literally blockaded with ice, and the commanders of several vessels which left the other side before tho bergs began drifting down on the Labrador current have doubtless been surprised to find themselves caught in immense fields. The steamship Gellert passed six large berga ou Thursday. The Kansas City was forced to bear away to the southwest several miles to get out of tho course of thirty-four big bergs which were drifting down into the track ; of passenger steamships. The General i Knox sailed along the southerly edge i of a great icefield in which the lookout on the masthead counted thirty-two glacial giants. Tne Venetia, from Christiansand, on Tuesday morning passed within half a mile of a berg about 1,000 feet long and more than 100 feet high. In Trouble, Probably. It is probable that ^gveral belated vessels have got into trouble because of • the ice. The Sorrento is a freighter ol ; the Wilson line, to which the Apollo, | which has not been heard from glnce j she bailed hence on February 20, also belonged. The Sorrento left Antwerp ! on March 4, and is thus twenty-three •; days out. The Essen, of the Ham- j burg-American line, with sixty-six steerage passengers and a cargo of sugar, sailed from Hamburg on March 7. She usually makes tho voyage in about fifteen days. The Island, of the Thingvalla line, brings cargo only. She sailed from GreenocU on March JO, and is therefore seventeen days out. As Greenock is a few days nearer than Christiunsand and the usual winter voyage of the Island is fifteen days, she is about three days behind time. Surrounded by l)erc».

SOUTH BEVD, Ind., March 27.— Ther* exists and has existed for some timo * mystery in the mail service in thi» city which has baffled the skill of tliar best government inspectors in tha west.

VISTCESSES, Ind., March 27.— An attempt was made by the prisoners confined in tbe Vincennes jail Mond»y morning to escape. Louis Hahn, * deputy sheriff, was attacked by one of the prisoners and knocked down. In falling he struck tha big iron door and forced it shut, thus cutting off the way and preventing the rush of all the prU- oners. who stood ready to make a datfe for liberty. ' Mr. Hahn was carried out insensible and is in a critical condition, Not a prisoner escaped. COXEi'S ARMY EN ROUTE. Alliance Renchod. AILIANOB, 6., March 27.-Tho Coxey army readied Alliance at TWO p. m. hungry, cold, tired, but enthusiastic. Crowds await its . coming, and 200 recruits were promised.
