The Bible Introduced by the General's Attorneys, Scripture Quoted Until Stopped by the Court — Evidence of the Witnesses— Coxey on the Stand. THE HIBLE AS A VTITSBSS. WASHINGTON, May 7—The trial of Coxey, liruwne and Jones was resumed in i,he district police court before a jury. Tlie courtroom was ii'iled to its full capacity by spectators. Proceedings were opened by Mr. Ilymaii in au argument,for the defense. He stiid that he would prove by prominent citizens that the arrest of the defendants was one of the most brutal altaivs ever heard of. Witnesses would testify to the action of tho police in tho use- of their clubs not, only upon the defendants, but upon others not connected with tho commonweal, lie expected to show by unquestioned proof that a conspiracy existed for tho conviction of tho defendants. Quoted Scripture. There was no denial or defense for what tho oommouwealors had done, he began. Defense would consist in the lawfulness of their actions, He could remember but one similar occurrence in history, the attorney said, and, thereupon, he produced a liible and began to read a Scriptural passage. Ho read the passage of tho Old Testament reciting that the Lord had commanded Moses to tako off hi« bat because he trod on holy if round. Stopped by the Judffo. He bad not talked long before Judge Millet was compelled to tno-ko the same objection raised by tho district attorney, and to roquost tho lawyer to devote himself to the recital ol what was intended to be proved. From his somewhat discursive statement it was gathered that the defense would be bated largely on tho brutality of the- police in clubbing citi/ons. It was to be shown that Coxoy had not ivalked on tho grass and that Browne hud been driven through the shrubbery by the police. Forced on flie GraM. Two witnesses were called who testified that Coxey did uot walk on the grass of the capitol grounds, but they had seen the police drive citizi-ns onto the grass before the procession arrived in order to clear the pathways. Being called upon to give a ruling on a question asked this wituess, Judge Miller said that it might be a mitigating circumstance bearing upon tho Intent to violate the law that a defendant had been forced upon the grass by circumstancea The judge added that a hundred thousand violations of the law did not excuse one violation of it. Coltiy Te»tlllo». After several more witnesses had been examined to show that Coxey did not trespass on the grass, Coxey was called in his own defense. In the course of his testimony he stated that according to the programme tho march •was to ba ou tho north side of the capitol, but they were under the lead ol the police, and if tho army had not been escorted to tho south of the grounds the misdemeanor might, never have been committed. Coxey said he told Maj. Moore that the army might break up and eater, the capitol grounds as American citizens, and the chief said there would be no objection to that, but not to carry the buuucrs. "I said there was one banner from Pittsburgh given by laboring men," ho continued, "that I had promised to plant there if my lire was spared and I would like to curry that. However, tho banner was packed into the wagons with the others. Ill* object j;ii)liilin>a- "My object in going to the capitol," .aid Mr. Coxey, "was to present to congress my two bills, the good roads bill and the non-interest-bearing bond bill and to address congress and the American peoplo on thorn, I deirauded tho protection of the police, who seemed to be Col. Bright's right-hand bower, to present to congress the petition from labor organizations in lavor of the bills." The men who camo with htm did so, Mr. Coxey said, upon the principle that thnt they might as well be with him as anywhere. They were out of work and their families were destitute at home. The t*p«*cb IJitrred. Judge Miller would not permit the Introduction as evidence ol the speech Coxey intended to make, or the protest he issued, saying that they had noth- in" to do with the trial. "Did you not know, Mr. Coxey," said Mr. IMrney, "that you were violating tho law in trying to speak?" "I am an American citizen, and 1 thought I had that right. Besides, the constitution gives roe tho right, aud I don't think the law that was passed intended to repeal the constitution. Mr. Bland Te»tllle». Representative Bland, of Missouri, then took the stand for the defense. He said while ha was standing on the capitol steps he »aw twenty-five police coming toward the capitol from the wuthera part of the ground*, and wound them WM *n immen»« nurnbw of people. . , '- ' "Did you see any of tlic police use their clubs?" asked Mr. Pence. Objection -wus maJe to the witness answering 1 . Mr. I'ence stated that ho wanted to Ehow that it was because of tho action of the police in rushing upon the crowd that tlic defendants were forced upon the grass, ami he had subpoinaed a dozen congressmen to prove it- Judge Miller sustained the objection. After onswi-ring suuie metro q.iicsLio)is as to tho iicl.on nf the poUco and cUiwins, Mr. H'.and was dismissal, and at li:4j the court took a recess till 1:1"). >;uys Ho Is l.usrr.

WASHINGTON, May T.—In tho senate Senator Allen (pop.. Neb.) offered a preamble and resolution providing for a select committee of live senators—no more than two of them to belong to the samp political party—to investigate all the facts and circumstances connected with the ar- reat and imprisonment of Coxey et al and to make such recommendations as will prevent such outrages hereafter.

The main part of tho army marched to the main gate and formed' in line in the roar of tho now army, Trouble is feared at Westville unless the two factions can settle thoir differences. The two teams are army property, and the new regiment claim that they are entitled to one toam. The men are losing faith In Gen. Randall's ability and may choose u new general.

CHICAGO, .May 7. — The soft coal famine is beginning 1 to be seriously felt in Chicago and some of the surrounding towns as well. Coal that ten days ago was practically a drug in the market at $3.75 a ton is eagerly sought for at K> a ton, and it is claimed by some dealers that as high as fVV) has been obtained for small quantities. H is learned on pood authority that the Illinois Central, the Rock Island, and the Chicago, Milwaukee it SU Paul railroads are desperately pushed for want ol coal. With one or two exceptions all the western railroads are more or less seriously afflicted. It will not be at all surprising if before the end of this week some o£ the roads will be practically tied up. at least so far as their ireignt trailic is concerned. The famine is also making itself felt amontr the factories and larjfu oflice buildiiiR-sof the city. Some of these foresaw the trouble which was to follow the strike aud protected themselves by laying in a supply which would last for a few weeks. From the offices of the various dealers it is learned that towns in the interior of this state, Iowa and Michigan are seriously short of soft coal. Among the towns mentioned are Biffin, Kankakee, Ulooiniugton, Strealor, Galesburg and Decatur. 1SIK Meottnv at Clcvnland, O.
