Vice President Van Horn, of th Trades and Labor assembly, followe with the statement that labor organ! zations feared a disband men t of the army here, and asked that the men bi hurried out of the state. Their pros cnco here, he said, would glut the la bor market and do a great injury ti Des Moines. . M. H. King, a local labor leader, in i short address requested that the gov ernor, "in unmistakable terms," ask the railroad companies for transporta tion, and Chairman Loweny, of the citi zens 1 committee, followed in a simila: appeal.

He has an offer by a boat line, he says, which would make the plan feasible.

The arrest, of Coxey aud lirownc on sucn trivial charges has elicited much unfavorable comment among t.hc people at largo. The cry of police persecution has already gone up. Senator Palmer, of Illinois, said that he was convinced that the executive authorities had gone too far in refusing a deposit, of $500 cash in lieu of a real-estate bond. The arrests have created such a general sympathy among the people that great quantities of provisions are being sent in for the army. <inlvln'« Army l'aj-» Far*. WHKKI.I.NG, W.

The bill provides for the issue of coin certificates on all the gold and silver coiu and gold bullion in the treasury in excess of $100,000,000 of gold coin which is held as reserve for redemption of the greenbacks.' The bill also provides for the issue of coin certificates on all of the silver seignoirage bullion, not exceeding $1 for,S71> 4 ' grains of pure silver, and that it shall bo the duty of the secretary of the treasury to pay out these coin certificates in discharge of all of the obligations of the United States, except such as are made? expressly payable in coin.

BIG EXPORTS OF GOLD. Over 90,000,000 tu H* Shipped from Now Y'ork Thl« Wrok. WASIHSGTOW, May 3.—Disquieting news Jwas received at the treasury "rom New York concerning gold exportations. Rates of foreign exchange continue high and firm, and in consequence large shipments are looked for. The reports are that at leostj $5,000,000 will - be withdrawn for shipment from New Vork next Saturday, with the probabili- ,ies that this amount will be grcat- y exceeded. These shipments alone will reduce the gold reserve to about '93,000,000. Of course, the gold withdrawn does not diminish our cash resources. On the contrary, as Dnited States and treasury notes are given in xchange for the gold, each withdrawal adds so much to the treasury available cash balance. THEY FAVOR SILVER.
