He was found a moment later by his assistant The news spread throughout the capital with amazing rapidity and all other subjects were dropped to discuss it. Dr. Sowers, who is in attendance upon Mr. Hatton, says the ca&o is not a hopeless one, and that he has known of recovery from more serious attacks. Mr. Hatton is resting- easily and his family is not alarmed. [Frank Hatton was born In Cadiz, 0., whero bo lived until bo reached the aijo of 14, when be ran »wtiy to the war.

One Hundred of Kelly's Oom- monwealers Deserti They Weaken at the Prospect of a Long and Weary March — Iron Molders Will Pav Their Way. KELLY I.OSI.NO -MEN. WALNUT, la., April24,—Kelly's army is growing- smaller. Shortly after it left 'Avoco. at least 100 men left the ranks and started across the country in various directions. The long march ahead and the vanishing prospects of securing a, train caused i rapid dissolving of the enthusiasm which baa hereto/ore marked tne progress of the army, and the men quietly dropped out. Kelly disclaimed all knowledge of tho wholesale desertion and asserted that he knew ot but ten or twelve men who had quit, but the men in the ranks acknowledged that their comrades are leaving and the fear is expressed that tho desertions will grow more numerous. Many ot the men who left rode east on Itock Island freight trains and others started on the return trip to Council Bluffs. It was stated by some of the railroad officials that 000 men had left tho army since the departure from Council Bluffs, but a careful count fails to show that this is the case. The army, as it left Walnut, numbered 1,118 men, but it is apparent that Kelly will be fortunate if he reaches Dea Moines with 1,000. Tho commander professes no alarm at the number of desertions, but the riiuk and file are beginning to lose hope and art! much discouraged. JColJowod by Dntectlvea. • Sheriff Hazen, of Council Bluffs, is following the army with three deputies, and claims that several crooks arc in the ranks. Three Chicago detectives and three Pinkerton men are also on the trail, and it is expected that wholesale arrests will be made at Des Moines. General Manager Dunlap, of tl\e Rock Island, reached Atlantic, and will remain near the common wealers until they reach Des Moines. The men are becoming violent in their com- plainte over the forced march across the country, and Kelly's authority is likely to be «everely tested if transportation is not secured at the state capital Wanted to Take a Train. During 1 the morning march Kelly was beseeched by his men to allow them to capture a train. The commander emphatically refused the request and told tho men that they would ruin him, themselves and the cause of the unemployed if they took suoh action. There was much adverse comment on his reply and Kelly is evidently alarmed at the serious aspect the matter is assuming. Object of Kelly'i March. Gen. Kelly on Monday, for the first time, told definitely what ha would do wlieu he reached Washington. He first disclaimed having any connection with Coxey or Frye. He said he had never received a letter or telegram from Coxey, and only know of his movements and plans through the newspapers. Kelly said: ••If we -ire utinlua admission to Washington I will fonr.ii company on tin- outskirts of tho c'lv -u d with four or my men will hum up Cnn- cssnmii PUJK-C. o( CoUiv.ulo: SenAto* Allen, or N.-ljniHliiv: Concrcsumiiii McGulrc, of C.iU.- tornlii, ami perlwiiw Senator PeiTor, ot IYIUISII.-S, and lav our petition in their hands.

A carload of provisions from Omaha, is promised at Atlantic, and the army's chances for plentiful fare, at least as far as Des Moines, are bright Will I'«jr Their Own Way. CHICAGO, April 24.— Thursday of this week Commander Jerry Sullivan, the latest oilicial of rank in the commonweal movement, will leave. Chicago for Washington over the Baltimore <fc Ohio railroad with S.OOO recruits for the rally on the capitol steps. His army is made up of iron molders almost exclusively, and for the present the bivouac is at Western and Chicago avenues. , Gen Sullivan prides himself on the spirit of independence which he promises in his army. The Sullivan contingent is not composed of deadheads, he says, but expects to pay its way. Its leader is not shortsighted either, and he is concluding transportation arrangements not only for the trip to Washing-ton hut for the return to Chicago. lien. Sullivan says the ironmo.ders contingent has a definite object in going to Washington and, knowing just what it wains to do, will know when its work is concluded. Then, he says the army will peaceably return to be disbanded ncnr home, cot to be left to scatter and overwhelm the vicinity of the national capital. Four trains have been provided on the Haltimorc & Ohio railway, each consisting of two passenger coaches and thirty-two box cars. The latter •ill be comfortably fitted up with board seats and straw. The 3,000 recruits will come from Chicago and the surrounding towns wherever there is an iron molders' organization. The unions themselves are to contribute the necessary funds. Wlmt tlio Mol<ler« Want. Gen. Sullivan says the ironmolders, while uniting with Coxey in the demand for improved roads, will ask for special legislation relating to the regulation of ore mines. They also want to foster a colonization scheme to relieve congestion at industrial centers; they want the United States senate abolished; they want more rigid immigration restrictions and advocate government control ol railways and telegraphs. After presenting these demands to congress they expect to return home. IJitrrert from Chicago. Gen. Kelly'and his western cohorts will be received by the armed police of this city in case they conclude to march this way. The council so ordered Monday night and gave Chief of Police Jirennan instructions that do not read two ways. He must prevent tho admission of the marchers within the corporate limits, simply because the aldermen believe that public saf<-ty demands it The resolution adopted by the aldermen cites tho municipality's inability to provide for its own unemployed and sees nothing but trouble resulting from the importations of the idle from other cities. It directs positive and firm action with an appeal to the railroads to cooperate. Curoy Will March On. NEW VOKK, April 24.—Gen. Coxey was angry when he heard of the proclamation of the District of Columbia commissioners issued as the embodiment of President Cleveland's views. "No, no! I shall not heed it!" he exclaimed when asked what Ije would do. Continuing, he said that the Washington police would not dare to arrest him and his followers. The proclamation would not cause him to desist from encouraging other industrial armies from storming the capital; on the contrary, ho should redouble his efforts to brine every unemployed man, woman and child to Washington. He was not afraid of Cleveland, nor would the fear of possible bloodshed deter him. He concluded: "I do not court n resort to nrms, out we win demand our rights, even if It taucs physical strength to prevail Mall not commit myself to that, tut will repeat my declaration to bring coairrc-ss w terms toy besieging W»»Ungton unill justice is done," Montnnft. Co«y>to» Solio a Tr»ln. ST. PAUL, Minn.. April '24.— There are between 400 and 500 raeu in this branch of tho industrial army, and th«y have been encamped at Jjutte, Mont., for several days while their leaders were trying to arrange for transportation. This had been refused, and the men came to the conclusion that if they wanted a train they must take it, and proceeded to do so. Monday night the Northern Pacific roundhouse at Butte was broken into, an engine fired up and run out, a train made up, the army marched aboard and then a train crew of the "soldiers" took charge of the train and started east at the best possible speed. At midnight they had reached Bozeman, where they Rtopped to wait till daylight, intending to resume their journey at once. Tho Northern Pacific officials in this city say there is nothing to stop them until near Livingstone, where a small washout will caus« a little delay. To Protect th» Xr«»«urr. WismsaxoN, April 2*. —Several bun- dred stands of email arms and repeating rifles have been d«livered from the . \v«ur. department to t tUo,t^«Miry<leP ar ^ mcnt' The imall arms were turned over to Capt. Putnam, ol the treasury watch, anJ the repeating rifles were placed at convenient points about the treasurer's end of the building. How It App««r» Abroad Loni>cm, April 84.—Tho Chronicle an article on the Amerioan now saym "industriL.l" armies which arc marching to \Vas.htn((Ujn. It that the American people are coming face to face with the Nemesis attendant upon their easygoing lassitude, which has handed orer the world's greatest republic to th« tender mercies of unscrupulous politicians and syndicates of millionaire*. It adds: "Coxey will fizzle out, but unless we are mi.slaki.-n a conflict is preparing that will be almost as serious as that which arose over slavery." The Daily News says the danger lie* in the important characteristic of th» American treatment of every social disorder. The paper adds that if it cornea to a- conllict with the militia the Coxcyites will probably be mowed down by the hundreds. There i» no danger whatever to the government, but there is a, grave risk of bloodshed. The whole movement, according to the Daily News, looks like ft last desperate device of the protectionists. An Opinion from Pat-in. 1'Ains, April 24.—The Temps says: "society in America lies upon such broad foundations that what would lead to a general revolution elsewhere is only a rapid skirmish iu America."
