The delightful scenery is not all, one of the chief treasures of a river trip is to gather on the upper deck alter supper ana watch the passing scenery by moon light while enjoying the cool river breeze and listening to, sweet strains ot music trom tne nana Deiow. On these river trips everyone is al lowed to do as they please as long as they please to do right.

Seventv-two hours is the min imum laid down by the railroads as the time necessary for preparations incident to the movement of a bri gade. Captain George Armstrong, quartermaster and commissary of the Kentucky brigade, said today that J. F. Poindexter, secretary of the Amer- lto him that notification of extended y movement of the Kentucky troops had been given to the railroad s represen tatives in Washington. Two or three days will be necessary to prepare for the movement of the brigade. Commissary officers al ready have begun the collection of the necessary food supplies for the jour ney to the border.' During the period that the prepar ations are going forwjard, brigade of hcers are looking forward to an in crease inflow of recruits.

SENATOR SHERMAN CALLS GOMPERS A PUBLIC NUISANCE Lives on Sweat of Laborer and Gave Money to De fend Dynamiters," He says Washington, Aug. 14'. President Samuel Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor, was character ized as a "public nuisance," by Sen ator Sherman, of Illinois, in a di gression today from a Senate speech it. 0 1. Dill ' "There is no more tyrannical, out' rageouse injustice than that, of lead ers who live on the sweat of other people's brow," said Senator Sher man. "Mr. Gompers. is a public nuisance." Referring to the Indianayolis and Los Angeles dynamite trials, Senator Sherman declared the federation pres ident had "prostituted the cause of labor by using funds,of laboring men for the defense of these criminals.' MV finmtvr never rinnlntned to anvbodv." he continued, "but it was the most fortunatclthing that ev j - , er nappeneu iu jur. uuiuycia mai uc himself escaped indictment on these . i nr- i ' il 1 I. same charges. "I've been owing this to Mr.- Gom rjers for some time and I'm handing it to him now, and I'm responsible practically and personally." W. J. BARNHILL DROPS DEAD lust as we go to press the news comes that W. J. Barnhill, the well known livervman of Madisonville. fell dead in his office at the livery stab e of heart trouble. Mr. Barnhill has a large number of friends in this city who will' regret to hear of his sudden death. Suffering in silence is commend- I able, but it is a dinged haru job to pulloff.

Adlutanfi General McCain said at noon that the Kentucky troops would leave for the border immediate ly transportation is arranged for them.

The Kentucky brigade officers were still without official orders from Washington regarding the) mobement to the border. Gen. Williams and other officers said they expected detailed orders some time today. The quartermaster's depart-1 ments of the different units start ed early this morning packing all sjurplus equipment and sup plies. The packing of boxes and the noise of the hammer were sweet music to the ears of the guardsmen and the men went at their tvork with a will. There is some doubt in tha minds of the officers as to when the troops will start. The rail roads are believed tOybe assem bling cars near here ;6r the trip South. Another indication that tbe department meaos business was that on instructions from the De partment of the East Oapt. Zointer, of the United States Quartermaster Department, or dered by telegraph travel rations for ten davs for the troops. Tha rations have to come from St. Louis and will be rushed here at once. ( That the order from Washing ton to move to the border has put more life and spirit into tha guard as a whole is evident beret this morning. Recruiting is pro ceeding at a better clip and tho numbers ure jumping fast.
