HELD BT THIS BOYS IN BLUE. ST. PAUI/, Minn., April SO.—llogan's Butte contingent of Coxey's army and their stolen Northern Pacific train •were captured at Forsythe, Mont, by federal troops under command of Col. Page at Fort Keogh at 11:30 o'clock Wednesday night, and are now prisoners >n Col. Page's hands, to be dealt •with by the United States authorities on several serious charges. No blood was shed, the Coxeyitcs submitting to arrest very quietly. The successful culmination of tho affair •was due to a very clever maneuver on the part of Col. Page, who, learning that tho train captured by the industrials was delayed by lack of water, secured a special train and took them by surprise. Thrlr Kntr«»t Cat Off. Had ITogan's band got past Fort Keogh before Col. Page received his orders to arrest them he would not have Interfered. Col. Swain had prepared for a retrograde movement on tho part of the Coxeyites by order- Ing that four troops of the Tenth cavalry from Fort Cnster go to Cus- t«r Station on the railroad line, and h»d the men retreated they would have been captured there. It so happened that the band could not leave Forsythe, owing to their engine's condition, and Col. Page kept on and received thler surrender. Clmrgo Acnlnit thr Mob. Upon receipt^ information of the capture of Hogan's band by the military from Fort Keogh, James McNaug-ht, counsel for the Northern Pacific Railroad company in New York, wired to J. H. Mitchell, Jr., here, and to Messrs. Cullen and Toole, of Helena, Mont, to proceed against tho prisoners before United State* Judge Knowles lor contempt of court, and also to • prefer charges of grand larceny against them for stealing: the company's train. Mr. JIcNaught also instructed the western lawyers to prefer charges of contplracy.under the laws of Montana, »g»lpst the mob and a charge of felonious awault, based on the fact of th«ir firlnjr on deputy United BUtes marshal*. «t>t* AuthorltM* Arowd. .. Tb« Mtan»»ot» M«t«. authorities «r* fully Impressed by the Important Dcar- ing which the eastward progress of the Coxey army may bave toward the peace and good order of tho state and they are at the same time advised of the possibility ol the state authority being invoked in the preservation of peace and the enforcement of law. either by assisting tho federal authorities or by the punishment of those who may bring the stolen property of the railway company into the state. Gen. Bend said that ordors had been issued ta the commanding officers of every company of the national guard in the state to hold their men in readiness to act upon a moment's notice, and those companies that are located along the line of tho road have been notified to be ready to net promptly should then* services be required Tho Fit-it Hlooil .Shed. I?n,r,iNos, Mont., April 20.—Blood was Khuil here Wednesday morning, but happily nobody was killed. There was great excitement ut 11 o'clock when it was announced that the train- stealing contingent of the Coxey array was coining- in, closely followed by a trninload of United States deputy marshals. Tlie truth of the statement was verified a few min- iites before noon, when the train of box cars ran slowly into town. The Coxeyites were overtaken by the special train of tho marshals just as they entered the limits of the city. After their arrival it was learned that the marshals' train overtook the Ilogan contingent just as they were pulling away from Columbus (formerly known its Still-water), and attempted to arrest the progress of the train bearing the 500 unemployed men who are in possession of tho train. The leaders in charge of the unemployed would not yield to the demands o£ tho marshals to give up the train and instructed their men to R-O ahead, which was done. The two trains came on slowly during, the forenoon until this city was reached, when a stop was ordered, and the conflict between the two bodies was the result MariihAla Fir* on tho Crowd. As near as can be learned at this hour Marshal McDermott ordered the loader of the captured train to surrender and when he refused to do so a few of tho marshals, without receiving a command to do so, fired upon tho crowd of men,on the c»rs, A few shots were exchanged 'between the parties before Marshal McDermott could regain control of his men. During the firing one of the deputies was seriously wounded and one of the men on the rear platform car was »hot in the groin. Withdrew Hli Forow. MfiPermott decided that his man war* not eapal to th« odds aminrt tTiem and ordered his men to quit firing. The captured train soon after : pulled out from the depot and McDermott notified the suth6rities that his force was inadequate to capture the BOO men, who were determined to retain possession of the train. THE COAL TROUBLES. Striken Are S»1<1 to He Slowly Oalnlni Ground. COLUMBUS, O,, April 20.— More accessions to the ranks of tho strikers were reported to the officers at the national headquarters of the United Mine Workers on Wednesday, and the suspension of work seems to be steadily though slowly gaining ground. Outside of the central regions no further Important developments are expected until May 1 and the national officers are quietly lying on their oars. The strike has given tho organization of the United Mine Workers n boom and local unions are being established in many of tho unorganized districts. The clamor for coal is rapidly increasing-, and in a' few days the supply will bo exhausted in many localities where it was not believed the strike would spread, and .where no preparations were made for the emergency. J. A. Crawford, state president of Illinois, telegraphed President McBrido whether lie should allow coal to be mined for the electric-light plant • at Springfield, and was answered in the negative. John 'Callihan vfired that the river oporators in the Pittsburgh district had offered to pay the advance demanded if the miners were permitted to work. Some of these operators have uot paid scale prices for four years. The order of the national convention not to load coal for any purpose is being rigidly enforced, and many factories in this and other states are bein£ forced to suspend. At Brazil, Ind., tho operators of the block-coal district offered tho men eighty cents a ton until a settlement is reached, This is an advanco of live cents a ton on last year's scale. A vote will be taken whether or not to accept, and a report will be filed here with tho operators Friday morning. DANVILLE. HL,. April 20.-All the local miners went out Wednesday, and the price of coal has gone up to fifteen cents a bushel. The consolidated,miners at Mission Field are still at work, but whether they will go out or not is impossible to say. Murderer! Eio»po. DK AD WOOD, 9.

Indluniipo.lix, 700 men. Total, 0,050. Reports from the police authorities in tho towns through which these contingents pass are received hero daily The police authorities of the District of Columbia have decided to swear in special policemen to serve during the Coxey invasion in the event of the commonweal force being considerably augmented. In preparation for this service the names of prospective special officers are being enrolled at the several station houses in Washington, and 200 of these will be selected for duty to begin Monday next if necessary. The chief of police will not ask congress fpr a special-appropriation for this force, but will pay its members out of an emergency fund. Preparing for Coiey. WASHINGTON,. April 20.—Preparations wore being made here to receive the cotnmonwealers. Subsistence funds are being raised and extra guards placed. A Reconciliation. ATLANTIC. la., April 20.—Kelly's army remained in camp here on Wednesday. Rev. ,J. Q. Lemon, of Council Bluffs, visited the camp ground in the capacity of a peacemaker, and succeeded in effecting » reconciliation between Kelly and Speed, tho leaders of the two factions. Kelly showed by his books and receipts that ha had' received $1,400 in cosh and had about 81,000 left. This he said ho intended to keep until his army was in such straits that nothing but the f 1,000 could get it out again. .The' adjutant's books showed that 1,280 men had responded to roll-call at Weiton last Sunday. Of these 75 per cent were skilled workmen, 20 per cent, were laborers and 5 per cent were unplaced. Over 80 per ceut were Americans and all were citizens of the United States. Less than 40 per cont were married men'. .Among tho men are two stenographers, a doctor, preacher, two lawyers, six electricians, one photographer and six barbers. Kelly Armr at Anita. ANITA, la., April 20.—Gen. Kelly's army arrived here about 2 o'clock p. c m. and camped for dinner. This is one of th£ wealthiest and most fertile farming regions in the state, aud while the people as a class have no sympathy with the movement the amount of provisions and assistance given the army indicates that there is lots of charity for the unfortunate fellows. Nearly 100 farm wagons were hero readyoto move the men onward. The Rock Island train following in the \vake of the army was attacked by somo of Kelly's camp followers a short distance from the army, and an effort was miule to steal a ride on the trucks, but was prevented by the train crew. • Hindi! n Good Iniprcsuloii. FKKDIIHCK, Md., April 20.—The army of the commonweal marched out of Frederick this morning in siffht of even i larger crowd than that which greeted their entrance on Tuesday. It was quite a compliment to the rough-looking travelers, for they had come In the face of strong- and determined opposition, aud they left the town leaving a very good record behind them. The sheriff's pdsso hud been summoned to bring them into camp like a, crang of crimi : n;ils, and ten of the same posse rode at, the head of the procession, but it was a sort of guard of honor in the eyes of the coininonvvealers and of the people who lined the sidewalk. The Coxey men themselves were arrayed as usual, the rank and fllo not having made any changes of clothes, even in honor of a sheriff's escort. Some of them were nrmed with their flags of peace, and looicod aa if with these weapons they could hr.ve made a pretty pood stand off for the mounted deputies. A Midnight How. There was a lively time in the commonweal camp just after midnight Some of the new recruits who had been drinking got into a free fight In the midst of the row a revolver was fired and the police rushing to the scene, the crowd scattered. One Hungarian, who was too drunk to run, was captured. Grn, rryo't Army at Brazil, TKIIUE HAUTE, Ind., April 20.—Gen. Fryc's army has left Terre Haute, and is now in Brazil, a mining town 16 miles east of here. He chartered a freight car on the Vandalia road and filled it. with himself, hi» two horses and wagon, tents, und a part of hi» follower*. .Those nnable to get on the oar the road rtfuicd to take. lie had estimated the weight of his army, the horses and camp equipage and claimed they were entitled to ride on his contract or on other cars up to the weight- carrying capacity of one car. The remnant left behind camped just east of town by the roadside. Late Wednesday evening they clambered on a freight train that had slowed down at the crossing, and the trainmen being unable to put them off, curried them on to Brazil, wh ere they all now are. Will T»kc No Actlou. WASHINGTON, April 20.— The wir department has taken no action toward Interfering with the Frye party which captured n train on the Vandaiia railroad in Indiana Wednesday and probably will not do so unless applicatton for assistance is made by the governor of Indiana- The Vundalhi line is not operating under the direction oi the United States courts and, therefore, the federal government cannot take the initiative in moving against the train stealers. It is evident that the national authorities are somewhat disappointed and chagrined at the failure of the governors and local authorities in western suites to do their full duty in such cases as that happening at Tcrre Haute. Knllrroul* Tiiko Action. NEW YOKK, April 26.— The Trunk Line association has decided uot to pive special transportation rates to the Coxey armies, for which application was made by "Gen." ,T. S. Coxey last Saturday. AUrncM Attention Abroad. LONDON, April 2<5.— Tho Coxey movement in the United States is attracting considerable attention, both in this country and on the continent, and is furnishing a fruitful theme for the editorial writers of the leading papers. The organs of the trade unions and labor organizations in general are publishing long reports of the movements of the different "armies" and are inclined at long range to regard the commonweal movement as the inauguration of social emancipation of the tollers of the states. The fact that the movements of the armies have not been checked by the authorities is also the source of considerable surprise and comment In this country such a demonstration would ha.e been impossible, both under the general laws and the various county regulations governing assemblages and demonstrations, and were a "commonweal' 1 to start out from any of the large English centers of population bound for London with the same object in view as those popularly ascribed to Coxey, the chances are that the ringleaders would have been arrested for treason by the time their first halting place was reached. THE COKE STRIKE. All the Work* In the Vicinity of Conn»11i Tlllo Shut Down. COX.VELLSVILI.K, 1'a., April 20.— The strike is a success in this section of the coke region. The only plants in operation are Davidson & Leisenring, of the Frick company; Meyer, Fort Hill & Rainey, of the Rainey company, and Clarissa & Nellie, of the Cochran company. None of these, except the two Frick plants.are running full. President Barrett presided at a larg-e mass meeting at Dunbar and warned the strikers that a resort to violence would cost them a victory which he predicted would come within two weeks .if they held together peaceably. Tliis meeting had tho effect of closing all the works in that vicinity. Hill Farm and Wheeler have come out. The other idle plants in that vicinity arc Malioning, Atlas, Anchor and Jlorell. Tho Vandcrbilt end of the district is the hardest, to get oul. The operators have promised tho men that if they will work through the strike they will grant the scale agreed upon by the other companies at the end of the struggle. The strike lenders arc determined to bring the Vanderbilt region out SAMOA FOR John Hull Wan FKOM HOOSIERDOM. Telegraphic Nowa of Interact to Indianiann. ENGLAN D. Control Over the !•LONDON, April 20.— The movement looking- to a Uritish protectorate over the Samoan islands is no longer disguised, but is going on in a manner which would seem to indicate that Great Britain believes she will be supported by Germany in the matter. To all appearance some secret understanding exists between Great Britain and Germany regarding the Samoan islands, and with this understanding the United Statos is included. A person high in authority stated that the protectorate movement upon the part of Great Britain was progressing 'with tho sanction o£ the United States government, which is represented as caring nothing as to who manages Samoa, so long as the rights of the United States under the Berlin treaty are continued. Iron oto j'rotiucuun. WASHINGTON, April 30.— Reports received at the geological survey from twenty-three states and two territories- give a total production of 11,607,007 long tons of iron ore in 1898.
