On both these points, the President Is receiving tremendous amount of advice dally. As a result, he has summoned his campaign general, Vance McCormick, for a conference at Shadow Lawn late today. In the first place the Democratic leaders want the President to "Vet Into the game" with Hughes and land on a number of Issues the Republican candidate Is now striving to put over the plate. While the leadera agree with the President that he should not ko out on a stumping tour, they are more and morr outspoken in urjflng" the injec tion or a few more personalities into the so-called "discussion of public questions", to whlchUhe President has said he wished to limit himself.

Many of his lieutenants want him to make platform speeches. The President, however, believes if he did this on a general plan, his trips might be classi fied as stumping tours.

Brig. Clen. William E. Harvey Is now awaiting full detailed Instruc- .ln- f.nvM n.napal. Wftrtll nnfl H tl 11 H ton as to how the troops are to be sent and to wnat points. Owing to the fact that there Is no brigade vacancy on the border. General Har vey himself will not go. His disap pointment, and that of the colored troops to be left behind, contributed the only element of gloom nbout the camp today. ... General Harvey is of the opinion that his boya will be able to start the moment the necessary transpor tation facilities are provided. This equipment, It was thought, would ba available not later linn the first of next week. At the office of the quartermaster general or the War Department It was stated that Genera! Wood had not sent In as yet his requisition for transportation for the District men. It Is expected at ayn time, and as soon as It Is received the quarter master general wljl get in touch with the railroad oftlcluls. Pullmans Provided. Pullman sleepers will be provided for the officers; tourist sleepers for the men, and cook cars to supply hot meals on route. Baggage and freight cars will carry the necessary Impedimenta und siich horses as may be carried. l''o ir days will probably be required for the trip, though the exact time will depend of course on the points along the border to which the troops will be sent. Owing to the greater facilities of fered for embarking the troops the District guardsmen will probably en train at Union Station, marching there from Camp Ordwtiy. Orders were Issued today for nil of the commands In the Third neglmeut to prepare for muator pay Saturday. This means that the pay rolls will be fin ished by Saturday and the money will probably be distributed early next week.
