Thousands of Omaha Workers Invade the State of Iowa, They Demand That the Railroads 8hall Transport the Commonweal —Much Excitement Exists. A JTOST OF OMAHA, Neb., April 00.— Three thou sand laboring men marched out of Omaha with banners flying 1 , bound for the camp of Gen. Kelly's commonweal- ers at Weston, la,, 14 miles east of Council Bluffs. At 9 o'clock a. m. the signal agreed upon at Thursday night's meeting' of the Central Labor union—tho ringing of church bells mid the blowing- of whistles—was given announcing that Kelly's army was still lit Weston unable to secure a train fur the ea-;t. Inside of five minutes 1,000 men bad gathered :u .letter- sun square and u-ei-e quickly organized into companies with a captain for every tou men. The march was then taken up. through Sixteenth street to Farnam, where the column proceeded to the city hall and countermarched. At every street recruits were received, and when the Pax ton hotel was reached there were 2,51)0 men in line. ,, Flvu Jlumfr'tft Ituoruitn. At Eleventh and Karnam streets the main column was met by a detachment of 500 men. They joined forces and proceeded to the Douglass street toll bridge across the Missouri river. Here they were met by the superin- tendont, who said the company was glad to give them free p;issage across the river. This was a graceful act, for the men were prepared to cross with or without permission. It had been expected that the Union Pacific shopmen would join the column at thi» point, but that, part of the programme yfte not carried out, for the company warned thn men when they came to work that those working would be expected^ to remain on duty all day. Thousands of people followed the column to the bridge and other thousands were on hand on the other side of the river to welcome them. The cold seemed to have the effect of bringing out a greater throng than had been expected last night, when the rain was falling so heavily. All the men seemed to bo in excellent spirits and determined that the march should mean business. The column had been preceded to Council Bluffs by a committee of prominent citizens appointed at Thursday night's meeting of the Central Labor union, Including Rev. Dr. Joseph T. Durica, pastor of the First Congregational church; Rev. Dr. Uamerson, of the First Presbyterian church, and Rev. Frank Crane, of the l;'irst Methodist church. The committee was to call on Gov. Jackson and the managers of the railroads and urgt} that the eommouwealers be at once started on their way east Arrlvftl In Council JUiifTH. A strange sight was witnessed on the inarch from the bridge to Council I'.luiTs. Men and boys seemed to spring up from the ground and the column which crossed the bridge had grown, to over 0,1)00 men by the time it readied the heart of the eitv. The burly form of Capt, O'Domihue headed the column, and at intervals the line was broken into companies, each one headed by u. Ilii^-bL-ai-er and acting under the 'orders of a captain. At Fifteenth and l!rn;ulw;ty streets the Omaha army WHS met by a detachment of Council r.UtlTs laborers with a life-nnd-drum baud and «. dozen flags. These, acting: us an escort, took the company to l!!i.yiuss park, where a. halt was called, and in response to a request from Chief of Police Seanlan a committee was appointed to present the demands of the men to the railroad officials, who were found in the oiliee of John Y. Stone. While the committee was in the ofllc.e the men lined up along the sides of the square, warming their toes by stamping on the pavement and cheering impromptu speakers. Demand Tmniiportation. In Mr. Stone's office Dr, Duryea addressed the committee, explaining that he bad conferred with Gen. Kelly and Gov, Jackson, He was convinced that the governor was In sympathy with the men, and was anxious to do what was right and forthe best interests of the army. Ue had made an earnest effort to provide for'transportation. He had conferred with all the railroads, but so far had failed. Ho had even beim willing to put his individual hands into vhe state treasury and pay their fares. Now, Dr. Duryea said, two alternatives present themselves: To bring back the men to the Clmutauqua grounds and house and feed them until transportation could be provided by way of Kansas City, or take advantage of an offer made by the Rock Island to the men as regular passengers. , Mr Tichnor, who acted as spokesman,' was very positive that Kelly's army would not go to Kansas City and that they would go to Chicago, Col. 0. B; Dailey wanted to pacify matters, Tmt the committe was warm and informed him. that there waa no u.e ot multiplying words, lor thej weredeti«rwia«dtQ we wentouiaof Council SBIulIs. They demanded to see isome representatives of the railroads, but were informed that none was in town. After some talk it was explained that the plan was to bring the men back to Council Bluffs and take them to Kansas City by boat. Kedrey and others of tho committee were of the opinion that this was a scheme on the part of the railroads aud refused to listen to it. They said the men were not going to Kansas City but to Chicago, mid Dr. Rodoiph said that the committee was not iu Council Bluffs to talk to the governor, but to railway oflicials. Wan ltd to Suiza n Train. Attorney Ilarle mude. au attempt to say something, when a little pandemonium broke loose, in the midst of which a troop of twenty or more women, headed by Mrs. T. Herman, inarched into the office. A proposition was made to march to the depot and se:/.o a train when Dr. Duryea cried out: "Hold ou, brethren, don't forget that we are all under one Jlag-, and that Council Bluffs and Omaha and Nebraska and Iowa are ail one ou this matter." The committee left the oilice in a huff to look at the telegrams said to have been sent to the railroad oiiichils. Cl'.ief Scanlan, who met the army at the bridge, had all the saloonR closed and the company officers suppressed the. numerous vocal demonstrations which were made. Governor Coiifern with Knlly. Gen. Kelly came over to Council Bluffs with the intention of catching a train for Weston, being very desirous of getting out of the city before the outpouring from Omaha, as ho said he was in no way responsible for the demonstration and did not want to be even u. party to it. In some way GOT. Jackson learned of. Kelly's presence and sent for him. Kelly ' hurried over to the governor's headquarters where were gathered several citizens, besides the attorney general. The interview was a long one. Gov. Jacltson took occasion to review at leugth and. in detail all the actions he had taken, the purport being that ho had taken every means possible to j^et the army on its way, and that the state authorities had uot laid a single straw of detention in its way. His correspondence with railway oflicials had resulted in nothing so far sis tho North western, Milwaukee & Su Paul and the Burlington we're concerned, they refusing to do anything. The Rock Island at first suggested that it might tnKo half the army to Davenport i-f the St. 1'aul would take the other half to the river, thu railways to be paid a fair rate, as might seem just to the governor. The governor had agreed to recompense the roadf, although there was no authority for him to put his hand into the state treasury for that purpose. This proposition to take the men across the stato had been recalled later, and now the railways would do nothing but, transport them as other yasseagers, at full rates. He notified Kelly that the citizens of Council Biull's had arranR-ed to furnish boats to take the army to Kansas City and to provide them with shelter and ample provisions while the preparations for this trip wore being made. Kelly replied that he preferred to go east, bul he would take the proposition to his camp, let the boys decide, and In; would wire back his answer.

The committee of laboring men from Omaha is headed by Jlev. Ur. Duryea, one of the best-known pastors of that city. Unless the railway officials act trouble will surely follow, Hnrd jVlB ht for Ule Army. WKSTOX, la., April 20—Gen. Kelly and ex-Cong-ressman Pusey left here for Omaha on an early train. The weather is severely cold and the ground was covered with ice. The industrial army put in a hard night, but most of them were enabled- to find a dry place to sleep. In the morning Mr. Nixon, who runs a woodyard, gave the men about twenty-five cords of wood and they built rousing fires below the Milwaukee tracks. Several of the men arc suffering from pneumonia, but they have a good supply of medicine to counteract illness. ItiilUruy Olflclalt Alarmed. Thursday night tho railway agents received instructions to prevent any commonwealers from occupying depots OT other railway buildings. The superintendents were afraid that this order might anger the men into.com- mitting some malicious act, and several deputy sheriffs were placed on guard, but the night passed off quietly and nothing was disturbed. At 10 o'clock a, m. .Superintendent Goodnow received a telegram from F. A. Noah, of tho. Milwaukee, at Omaha, •tattng that wveral thousand men were oja. thelfi war hen to help Kellr'* { army. Superintendent Goodnow is much alarmed and fears that these men'may incite destruction of railway property, lie said he could not get a. large enough force here to stop any destructive acts, but would stop all trains and get'all rolling stock out of the way.

The traiu .stopped here for a few minutes while the general manager consulted with Superintendent Fox. The party in St. John's cur came out ou the platform and viewed the shuddering men wrapped in wet blankets. Expressions of sympathy were heard and St. John expressed willingness to curry the men if he had the authority.

THEY WILL STIiiKE Illinois Miners Have Decided to Quit Work. Four Thousand in Pennsylvania Are Already Out—Strikers Stop Great Northern Trains. KKAPY TO .IOIN. BBACEYIU.E, 111., April 20.—The coal miners of the Braidwood district held a big mass meeting Thursday afternoon in Glackm's grove, about 2 miles north of here. There were nearly 3,000 people present. Miners from Braidwood, Gardner, Coal City, Braee- ville, Carbon Hill, Suffernvillo, IMa- mond and Clark City were out in full force. After the meeting was called to order Representative Howells made a short speech and explained the principal object of the raereting. The convention was held for the purpose of deciding whether the miners of the district would join the general strike. After considerable discussion it was decided almost unanimously to suspend work at 12 o'clock Saturday noon, pending the results of the national convention at Columbus Saturday. Sl'HlSGFlKl.l), HI-- April 20.— At a. mass meeting of the miners of this district Thursday night it was unanimously voted to suspend work at noon Saturday, April 21. HrnzU Mlneri WlH Strike. l?ium,, Ind., April 20.—The miners' meetings at the various mines in the county Thursday developed the fact that the men will not continue working lull time until the expiration of their contract May I, It was claimed that the vote of the miners was almost unanimous to work only one or two days a week till thoir cor tract is fulfilled, then join the strike. The fact that tho operators are filling .every switch with foul for use in ease of emergency has actuated the miners in voting to work only part time. Itis claimed that the operators are receiving numerous orders from large factories insisting upon the quick shipment of a large number of cars of coal. Three thon- Kmil two hundred tons are being shipped daily over the Chicago & East- em Illinois to Chicago. J.i«lU Down Tliclr Toot». RociiESTEB. X Y., April -JO.—There are 4,000 bituminous coa.1 miners on strike in northwestern Pennsylvania as a result of the order o£ President Jlcliride of the United Mine Worker* of America. This strike was ordered iit a meeting of the mine workers iu Columbus, where its headquarters are located, on April 11). Saturday, April 21, was fixed as the time for the strike, but in order to cut off the output as much as possible 1,000 miners employed by Bell, Lewis & ifates at Dubois went out Wednesday. Thursday they were followed by 1,500 men in the Dig Soldier mine at Hey- nolcisvillu, and by all tho miners employed at Adrian and \Valston by the Rociiester & Pittsburgh Coal and Iron company. At 0 o'clock the men at the Elmora. Beech Tree and Helvetia mines announced that they would not return to work this morning. This makes fully 4,000 strikers. Two Hundred Thoi»»n<l to QulU It is estimated that by Saturday night there will be 200,000 miners out if President McUride's orders are obeyed in all parts of the country. As a result of the strike the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh Railway company will immediately lay off twenty- five freight crews and the shipping 01 soft coal from Buffalo and Charlotte will be stopped. The Western New York & Pennsylvania and the Fall Brook coal traffic will also be seriously affected. The coal contract* with the railway companies hava all been made for tn« QJaJth«.«Utiwr »ch«dul« of W wtiich is a cut of '2X per cent, from me rates in force last year. The raw last year was seventy cents a ton for straight pick mining in the Hocking valley with differentials for the other mining regions according to the locations. The Pennsylvania rate is now from forty to fifty cents a ton and tho miners claim that they caunot live on this amount. The operators say that the poor work of the last year has left the miners without means to carry on a successful strike. All Cnlou Men Will Go Our, Jvews from the Cumberland and West Virginia districts received by operators residing here indicates that the men there will not go. out, but the miners say that sil! the union men in Pennsylvania, \Vest Virginia, Ren- vicky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, .Missouri, Kansas and Colorado will go out before Saturday night. They claim that the operators acted in bad faith in cutting rates in the middle, of the winter. They propose to light it to the end. KilliHium Will Not Strike. TOI'EKA, Kan., April -ja—State Mine Inspector Gallagher is now convinced that nooo of the ooal miners in Kansas will obey the call of the national mine workers to go out on a strike. He says that the union is badly divided in Kansas because of tho failure of the na- tioual organization to furnish assistance to the Kansas men during the strike last summer. Stopped tin: Trains. ST. 1'AUL, Minn.. April ao. — The storm center in the Great Northern strike is at St. Cloud, where most of the trouble has heretofore been encountered. Wednesday and Thursday United States deputy marshals were interfered with aurt the restraining order of the United States court violently resisted, trains being stopped as on the previous days,pf the big strike. There are now in that immediate vicinity between fifteen and twenty United States deputies, and Marshal Bede started for that place at 10 o'clock a, m. with an additional force. The deputies already there have taken the names of the strikers who resisted them; warrants have been sworn against ten striker' active in opposing and threatening tn« deputies, The Propound Conference. The other point of particular interest is in the proposed conference in this citv. The full correspondence between President Hill of the' Great Northern and President Debs and Vice President Howard of the American Railway union, has been printed. Mr. Hill did not iu that correspondence recognize the union, but he specifically explains in a letter later that "the company is ready to receive the men in its employ or their representatives. This includes all men on the company's pay rolls. The company can have no knowledge as to who will represent its employes except as they themselves will designate." This correspondence makes certain an curly conference. MEMORIAL TO THE FAIR. Movement In Now York to ForpetUfcte th« Great Kxpoiltlon. XEW YORK, April 20.— Ac effort is being made to interest prominent and wealthy women of New York in a plan to raise a memorial to the Columbian exposition. Mrs. Keal, a well-known woman iu the west, is here with letters from President rainier, Mrs. Pot^ ter J'aimer and others connected \vith the world's fair, indorsing the movement. The plans as far as can be learned are to erect memorial build- .ss representing science, art, music, etc., at Chicago in honor of the exposition. K is to be a national affair to which each state, it is hoped, will contribute, tho idea of its promoters being that it the women of America can be enlisted in tho cause the men will soon fall into line. A novel feature of the plan for raising the money is that those who may not feel able to give outright any creditablo sum may have their lives insured, making the memorial fund a beneficiary.

Information received at the treasury indicate* that there will be another heavy payment of gold Saturday, which possibly may reach last week's shipment of $4,200,000.

Nevertheless the gold supply in the treasury is decreasing .week by week until it has reached a. point where the tluo,000.000 reserve is liable any dajr to be again encroached upon.
