THE WAR BEOINS. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., April 25.—Late advices say that the Butte (Mont.) Cox- eyites, with the stolen Northern Pacific train, arrived at Billings at 11 a, m. A forct of seventy-five marshals attempted to take possession of the train, but the mob, who was armed, prevented them. Shots were exchanged, and tha Coxey leader, James Hogan, was shot three times. The wounds arc not serious. The deputies were surrounded, their arms taken from them, and the mob got on the train again and the journey was resumed eastward. The military will now meet them on the Dakota line. Ordered Out bv tlio Prenlilrnt. WASHINGTON, April 25.-President Cleveland h»a ordered the troopn stationed at Fort Koogh, Mont., to intercept the Coxey army tramps who seized a Northern Pacific tram at Butte. United States soldiers are to assist the United States marshals ot Montana and Minnesota, and Gen. Schofield, who is in command, has been'instructed to arrest the whole crowd. The troops left Fort Keogh Tuesday night and marched to a point on the Northern Pacific where a bridge had been removed by the railway employes to stay the progress of the a-rmy. It was expected that the troops would reach the point early in the morning and that the thieves would be caught in a trap between the troops and the 100 United State* deputy marshals who left Butte on a special train at U o'clock Tuesday night The Coxey pang can scarcely escape. It is understood that four companies of cavalry were sent from Fort Keogh. St-liullol(l'» Ordon. Maj.- Gen. Schofleld, commanding the army, has sent a telogram to Gen. Merritt, commanding the department of Dakota, instructing- him, by direction of the president, to have a sufficient force sent to arrest all persons engaged in the unlawful seizure of the Northern Pacific train at Bntte and to hold the train and all on board until they can be delivered to the United States marshal for Montana, subject to the order of the United States district court Followi Olney's Orders. This action follows close upon Attorney General Olnoy's telegram of initruc- tionto United States Marshal Bode at St. Paul. There is no legal difficulty in the way of governmental action at this stage, as the railroad property iu now in. the hands of the United States courts, acting through a receiver, and the president may move at once upon the representations of the United States judicial officers. Apprehension Arou»ed. It can no longer be denied that the movement now in progress throughout the west has aroused thu apprehension of tha naUoaul authorities. As long ivs the numerous "armies" and oilier organizations conducted themselves in a. peaceable and law-abiding fashion there was no disposition to interfere with th-Mii. But by such acts 83 the seizures of traius and oilier lawless doings it is made evident to the oilieers of the gov eminent that they no longer can Bto at a policy of non-intcrl'erenec. Fur ther trespass upon vested rights and tho (food order of the community prob ably will ba severely repressed whenever by violation of United States laws the national government finds itsel: justified in acting. Bvnmtor Allen's Resolution. WASHINGTON, April a5.—Senator Al len (pop., Neb.) offered a resolution in the senate reciting that a large uum bor of the unemployed citizens of th' United States arc on their waj to the capital to petition the gov eminent, that threats had been made ol the arrest of such persons on coming to Washington, and that sue) persons had a perfect right to visit the capital as long as they behaved m a law-abiding manner. He aaked iraine dlate eonaideration for his resolution but objection was roadu and it wen' over under the rules. Ordered to Shoot. ST PAUL, Minn., April SB.—Genera Manager Kcndriek, of the .Northern Pacific has received a special dispatch from 1'ort Keoffh stating that U nite 1 States troops are now guarding th Northern Pacific tracks 70 miles east o Billings. They arc ordered to capture the train nt any cost and to shoo down all men wto resist A bloody fight is feared. B 'fain* Ate Guarded. SPOKANB, Wash., April 25.-An orde has been issued by Judge Uanford. o the United States court, directing- Dap -utv Marshal Vinuon to swear in a. snf flcient force ot deputies to guard tb trains of the Northern Pacific roa from seizure by the coromonwealers This action was taken because of a re port that a concerted movement is on foot to seize trains at Spokane, Seattl POUT-LAND, Ore,, April 25.— The Port- and contingent of the industrial army, bout 500 strong, has begun its march astward. They started over the line f the Union Pacific, and the supposi- ion is that it is their intention to cap- uro a freight train before proceeding ar. They made an unsuccessful attempt to capture * Northern Pacific reight train, but were prevented by lie po!.ice. KulU't Divided Army. ATLANTIC, la., April 2.">.— Temporary peace reigns at the fair grounds, where he contending factions of Kelly'a in- untriul army are camped. The revo- ution of Tuesday, which separated he San Francisco and Sacramento ivisions and elevated Col Spe«d a the generalship of the latter, was the one topic of conversa- ion and the bitter feeling among the icn was as apparent as on TUBS- ay Kelly and his :iOO people occupied he center of Uic fair grounds, while peed with lii.s SOI} surrounded their amp flres in a, far corner, Kelly abso- utoly refusing to recognize liis recalci- rant officer. The latter asserted that e would march to Washington with •Cclly's column, but -.vould hold 110 ommunication with the general. The acramento men wore seemingly nxious -tor a test of strength with the Cellyites. Kotli Ieailc.-s are kept busy irev'enting personal conflicts between he men and Kelly frankly expressed is fear that the men would get beyond us control and precipitate a general fight. ' _^ ___ _ STRIKERS GAINING. Leudora of the Miner* Seem Encouraged with the Situation. COLUMBUS, 0., April 25.— The fourth day of the great coal strike brought ncouragiug news to the national offl- •ors of the United Mine Workers, and t,hoy are confident that the general suspension will be a success. They ex- )oct a complete shut-down on May 1, vhen tho contracts of a large number of miners who arc now at work will expire. Telegrams have poured into the national headquarters all day from operators asking permission to work mines at the prices demanded under certain conditions. In every instance these requests have been denied, President Mo- Bride declaring that the order for suspension adopted by the minors specifically provided that no coal should be oaded. Only repair work about the mines is allowed under any circumstances. There are many operators who are anxious for a conference and who would gladly pay the prices demanded 3 y the miners if such a thing could, be arranged. The national officers of the miners, however, are determined not to yield at any point until the operators and miners in every district can be brought together and agree upon a scale of prices so that the miners in all sections of tho country can resume work on equal conditions. Illinois miners in convention at Springfield indorsed the strike ordered by the national body and adopted a political platform. W. A. Crawford, of Bryant, was elected president of the Illinois branch of tho United Mine Workers of America. The effects of the strike arc beginning to be felt in every section of the country, and President McUride estimates that there is not over three veeks' supply oJ coal on hand in any region. This will necessarily maite the strike of short duration, and it is generally believed that if the miners continues firm a settlement will be arrived ut shortly after May 1. ST. Louis, April 25. -About 200 miners from along tho Mobile and Ohio marched to. the Valley and Gulf mines at Sparta, and peaceably dissuaded the miuers afc work there, and who evidently were disinclined to quit, to join the strike. All tho miners at Vcrcy, Koscborough and Sparta arc now out, in obedience to the general order of tho strikers. _ _____ APRIL, 2O, 1804.
