Numerous names are mentioned in connection with the nppointroe.it, the most prominent being that of ex-Gov, Luce, who was tho only candidate against Btockhridge before the legislature of 1693. There will be plenty of other candidates, however, among- those named beinp ex-Congressman Cutcheon, John W. Illod^ett, John C. Fitzgerald, John Patton anrt Thomas J. O'Briou, of Grand llapids; Congressman Burrows, of Kalainazoo, and Congressman Hubbell, of Ilougliton. The senator's death will causn a shifting of plans relative to the coming election, UK it will tfive the next legislature an additional candidate to elect It was coming to be conceded that McMillan should have another term, but this event will put numerous candidates In the field and naturally cauwj him to form an alliance with some western candidate for mutual benefit.

A DAY <>F BXCITKMENT. ix, May 1.—Gen, Coxoy arrived at the east front, of the capitol at 1 p. in. A tremendous crowd had assembled, :iii(l (Jen. Coxey utlemplud to epetiU. 1((! was :it oncu arrested, Browne's personality in the exercises came after the main performance was over. He rode his nettle-some charter iu the forbidden paths of the capitol grounds mill jumped him over the Btoiie coping to tho eastern part cH the park. A mounted officer started after him, and us lie resisted arrest lie received a clubbing. His head was cut. but it is not thought that he was badly hurt. The incident started rumors ailoat as to general fig-hting, but DO such tiling occurred. Christopher Columbus Jones, commanding the Philadelphia contingent, also tried to break into the capitol grounds and was promptly arrested and, together with Carl Browne, was locked up at the Sixth precinct police- station. Coxoy was not formally arrested, but was put off the grounds. Hrokti Ciiuip. Tho commonwoalers spent another cheerless night The weather was cold and damp and the men were without covering There were few who had any shelter -whatever. But breakfast braced them up and they foil to work with a will to break Catnp George Washington. By 9 o'clock there was no vestige of the camp remaining iu the liright- wood drivinjf park except a few piles of straw and (funeral Utter. Shortly before 10 o'clock Marshal lirowno formed ]iN m:n in hoi low square, and, staud- ii p i i the center, called for three cl ceri for peace. The cheers were JT yen :iud the commonwealers waved their ittle cotton flaffs of peace, with \ hie . they had been armed. Oil to the CttjiltoL ,lutit,than the leader of the commonweal arrived iu his pony phaeton, •\Vith him was Mrs. Coxcy, and in her arms she carried little "Legal Tender Coxey " her babe of a few weeks. At 10:15 Marshal Urowne called "Attention" again, and with "Shoulder peace" and "Forward march" the commonweal ormy started for Washington, led by Browne, Coxoy and the band and a platoon of mounted police. The. route of the procession was down, the Fourteenth street road to .Mount I'leasa.ut, thence along Fourteenth street proper to Pennsylvania, avenue to the Peace monument, and around the capitol grounds. Tho commonweal moved at a funeral pace, and it was three-ff.nu-trrs of an hour in reaching Mount Pleasant, a suburb of the city. At the head of the dusty soldiers of peace were three mounted policemen. Then came Mrs, Anna L. Diggs, the populist, orator of Kansas. Mumi" Coi«>y the Ar.tnicllon. Then appeared the greatest attraction of the whole show. Miss Mamie Coxey, typifying "Pence-,' 1 mounted on a white palfrey. Miss Coxcy would attract attention anywhere, even if not dressed in her symbolic garments. She is a beautiful irirl of 10, a perfect blonde, with long, waving golden hair, on which the little-blun liberty cap sat jauntily. To protect her cream and rail complexion from the sun she carried a black parasol. Miss Co.xcy wore a suit of cixam-colovcd cloth, relieved by a big red liow at the throat. She seemed perfectly at home on the palfrey, but appeared somewhat embarrassed at utlntcling so much attention. She nodded smilingly at the people who saluted her, and was nLloj;ethcr the most pleasing thing in the parade. Two old soldiers, one. a 1:011 federate and the other a. federal, both members of the commonweal, • formed her guard of honor, g on foot. The parade readied the city limits at 11:^0. It was not permitted west of Fourteenth street This was at the instance of the president, who thought it inadvisable to hazard a possible demonstration by some crank in front of the white house or treasury building. Coxey wanted to pass these t\vo points, by JJaj. Moore lirmly insisted on the Fourteenth street liue of march, Mounted tuo Step*. At 12:10 the procession turned from Fourteenthstreotiuto the famousPsnn- sylvuniaavenue. which leads to the capitol. Thousands of. people lined the avenue but tnere was little confusion, owing to the excellent police precautions, When the -army reached the capitol at 1 p. m. the sensation was over. The immense crowd on the eastern ' front of the capitol saw Coxey. bareheaded, proceed to tho steps' of the east portico and mount to the first platform about five steps. Here were stationed Capt. Kelly and oilier officers ot this police force. They met the general before be had time to turrTbis face to the gathered multitude and h£ was politely informed that he could make no speech at that place. Cpxty said flrmly: ••"I wish to enter a protest" "No Sir," firmly said the captain, no action hero of any kind." The pollee were courteous, but Tery firm. Coxey then, bareheaded as> he was, B.-iid: "Well, therv I wish to read a. protest" "Jv cannot be read icre," said the officer. Removed bj the Pollco. Coxcy showed no inclination to jield and -he was unceremoniously huatled off the steps into tbo middle of the broad plaza in front of the capitol. lie made no physical resistance but protested all the while an-i the crowd gathered around him and obstructed tho way somewhat, but it was nut a hustle of resistance but seemed ;norc like curiosity. The police did nc : J.usc their clubs; no one was struck and (.hi: im- iniT.su crowd was handled in tho kindliest yet in tho firmest and most effcc- tivo manner. AH who came expecting some serious trouble, anil thorn were not a tew, were disappointed. Peace -A-igrifiil throughout the whole demonstration. The ep'sode then certainly closed for the day, and the affair of Coxey lasted not over ton minutes, His was taken by the police to the <:dgM of the crowd without any difi'.eulty and entered his carriage. Capt. Kelly said: "Whore do yon go jiovr, Mr. Coxey?" "To our new grounds in southeast: Washington," the industrial leader said, lie then gave the araiy the order to march. The police authorities again, showed their courtesy in furnishing him a suitable- escort, and tho weary, disappointed "Wealcrs" again started on a hot tramp for a new resting• place. A Llttlo More Kicltlnff. Meanwhile in another part of tho grounds another scene wa» being enacted. Just as the head of tho army turned along- the south front of tho capitol grounds, fllaj. Moore, who headed the procession, fearing- that tho Coxeyites would attempt to enter the grounds at that point, turned his horse and rode back to whero Marshal Browne wu.s. Browne turned and pointed straight ahead, signifying that he would noS enter the grounds there. Maj. Jloore saluted, smiled pleasantly and rode ahead. The army following the car tracks, turned up B street along the south side of tho grounds. Browne was not acquainted with the locality, and asked frequently where he was. Kniered tho Grounds. .lust noith of New Jersey avenue Browne halted the men and called Jesse Coxey up and turned the command of the army over to him, leaving his horse in tho charge of his attendant. He told young Coxey to keep the common wealers where they stood and to wait until he came back. Instead of waiting u tail-he reached the entrance to the grounds. Urownu clambered over the coping, and, breaking into a run, dashed alone in tin; direction of the capitol. The enormous crowd, composed entirely of the rougher class of \Vashinglouians, followed him, dashing over the bushes and destroying all the shrubbery in their path. irsivl Tlinir Cluln. For a few minutes the police could do nothing at all wit)i the crowd, but rode aimlessly about clubbing- anyone who happened to be in the way. Browne dashed on until within 100 feet of the capitol, where ho was arrested by Olli- eev rfu-;u»lino. The officer says Browne assaulted him, but Browne himself was clubbed and pretty roughly handled bv four officers, who grabbed him at about the same time. Browne was led down first street with an ol!iccr holding each arm and mounted police riding alongside.

When arraigned, Brown gave his name as Carl Browne, date of his birth, July 4, 18W, at Springfield, 111., and his occupation us that of a journeyman artist, lie had fT.as in cash, several medals and a gold watch, lie requested a receipt for these things, but was informed that that was not necessary. When the officer was nsked what tho charge was, he replied: "Disorderly conduct, and as for myself, why he assaulted me." Browne was not charged with the assault, however. The pistol he claims to have taken from one of Jiis followers, as he had strictly enjoined them not to carry weapons of any kind, knowing the strictness of the laws of tho District against carrying concealed weapons. It was a miserable little airair, unloaded and broken. It was perfectly useless and no charge was preferred against him on this ground .III » Oil. lie -was placed in cell >"o. 1 and had nothing to say except: "I am going to let the American .people speak for me." He requested that some one be sent to tell Jesse Coxey to pet the army back to camp aa quickly and quietly as possible. When Jones was arraigned he gave his name slowly and distinctly, "Christopher Columbus Jones," his age as 66, and his occupation as that of a pump- builder. He had only seventy-nmo cents in money, a paper of pins and B V.nlf«.. When Mkedto. talk, he said: "The press done the whole of it." H« then said the Lord's prayer to himself und laid down on the bench in his cell, refusing to say anything else. Oviitloi) to Coxey* When Coxey, under police escort, passed oat of the capitol grounds, to rejoin his array, the party was followed by at least 10,000 people and the otliccrs and those with the crowd* who pressed in front made the passage a diflicult one. Finally the police and their charge reached the bead of the proce»- sion on B street directly in front of the residence of Congressman Springer, of Illinois. Somebody set up a cheer and thousands joined in as the head of t,he commonweal pushed his way to his carriage. The cheering grew in volume until it seemed that every roan, woman -.Hid child in th;a vast assemblage was crving the name of foxey. Coxey finally managed to get into the carriage with his wife anil Uic crowd cheered him again and ag:iin. "You'll have to start this procession," cried out a policeman. "Speech, speech," came from hundreds of throats: nnd, rising in his phaeton, Coxey started to speak. But his voice could be heard by a few only, so he waved his liand for the procession to go ahead, and the line started olf with Marshal BrodtfricU in command.
