Incident Picked Up on the Trip and En tertainingly Told by One of the Members. (BY AUSTIN PEAT.) In all the annals of 1892 no worse day had come than the morning ol iov. 9th, which was to see us off for our annual hunt. The rain came down without ceasing from morn until night. .The heavi ns above may have been clouded, but the po litical skies were a rosy red and the Democratic heart shoutedjor joy. "When we reached Memphis the rain was gone, and the sun shining with southern fervor. At 5 o'clock p. m. wo were aboard that noble craft Kate Adams, on her downward trip for Arkansas City. Let us count the brethren and see who answers to the roll call. Capt. Sam R. White, J. R. Caudle, Walter Hart, Wm. West, Peter Barker, Chas. Barker, R. J. Carothers, W. D. Garnett, T. P. Burke, P. B. Pendle ton, Henry Ransom, Austin Peay twelve members, five negroes, twenty-four dogs, horses and wagons, and baggage unto the ends of the earth. Old faces are missing, but welcome to the tender feet. The Kate is loaded to the gun wales with a heavy cargo of promis cuous freight. Her lower decks are crowded with roustabouts and labor era for the levees below, while above, her brilliantly lighgted and long sa loon is thronged with first-class pas sengers. They are merry, for they are Democrats, and feel that once again the South is in the saddle, and that the heart and hand of the nation, yes the nation, are with her. Veterans who hud fought with! Lee grasped the hand of him who had roile with Forest and rejoiced together. There in our front.sat young Forest, with the eagle glrtnce;and detetmined look of his father, the Ney of the South ern armies. One gaunt and grizzled old soldifrwho had charged with Pickett up Cemetery Hill at Gettys burg, had so much enthusiasm, not altogether unmixed with red liquor, that he 1'iuld not keep it battled. He approached Hart and asked him if he might yell just once. I was reading some distance down the sa loon and Hart told him that I was thecrtpta'n and to go and get per mission. He came to me and said : "Cap, I want to holler." Said 1 : "Friend, why do you wish to hol ler?" Said he: "A damned negro has been representing my district in Congress and now we have got 'em." f-'a:d I: ' Let her go; I am with you," and he raised ajyell that made the Kate ring from stem to stern and brought the lady passengers in alarm to their feet. He was a unique character. Hart asked him his name, and he told him it was Jones, and as he expressed it, "damned near nothing," for he said "every escaped horse thief called himself by that name whenever he got away." About 10 o'clock he broke into a game of poker, and in tho "wee sma" hours of the morn ing, when he was landed at his plan tation in Clark county, Mississippi, he was duly sober; had less money, tint still a Demoerati;'enthusirtsin boundless as the shores of the "Great Father of Waters," and as the Kate rounded again into the stream and left him iu darkness he was shouting for Cleveland and the straight ticket from end to end. The morning cold and clear and the ragged- shores are fringed with ice. At Ferguson's Landing, on the Arkansas side, and one hundred and sixty u iles below Memphis, John Powers, a noted bear hunter with four good bear dogs, joined us and will rump and hunt with us. lie is a rather good-looking specimen with auburn hair and fiery whiskers, and his dogs have the scars cf many bat tles on them, and are gaunt as woll hounds. At 1 p. m. we are landed at Old Napoleon and the Kate goes steam ing away. Haul our baggage up the hill to Alexander's cabin and camp for tho night. Bright and cold, and the stars gleam through over-arching trees like tho electric lights of heav en. Old man Alexander is as seedy looking, and if possible, more pro fane than ever. He is the lamp keeper and the last relic of a bygone civilization. Years ago, where the current of the river now sweeps bv. was a flourishing city of two thousand Inhabitants. Here was a marine hospital, and " a tn do that was sought far and near, but the war and waters came, and it is no more. All that is left is old man Alexander and a profusion of choice oaths. He was born here, and it is more than likely he will drown here, for during tho past summer for more than three months the water was throe foot deep on the floor of hi3 house and he still lives and swears. In the morning early we are off with hair of our plunder and will send back for- the remainder. Eight rough miles to camp over a successio i 'of hog-back sand-dunes, We are scarcely started before a large doe and fawn cross our road, and play around and look at us with curious eyes, and no guns are out. When we reached our old camp on Jefferson, we find that the overflow has moved the drift and gashed and scarred it until it is inaccessible, and wefind another location on the east bank of Jefferson amid the oaks and cane. Hard work and the tents are up and camp puts on an appearance of home. Sunset.'and our old friends Mr. Sam Lennox and Iverson Varner come and bring with them twenty hounds, which make nearly fifty now in camp. Our population is swell ing, but these friends are more than welcome. A load of corn , received from Watson, which costs $3.75 per barrel. Verily corn is scarce in Desha county. Some of the men when tho tents were up road out prospecting, and report not much "signs." Shields, ourj.neighbor, on the levee, killed, a fine buck near Cheatam Lake, and gave us ;a quar ter for thecainp. We retire early, for we are tired from hard work. Before day the menare up, and ere the sun had risenwe had breakfasted, and we were ready for tho woods. There was no use in this, as a matter of fact, for it was Sundny, and there would be n ) regular hunting, but it had a business-like air, you know, that impressed outsiders k and the tender-feet with an exaggerated idea of our greatness as hunters, and we could not let theoccasion go by. We have scoured tke woods far and near and the prospects are not bright, for game of all kinds seems to be scarce, as tho overflow lingered until July. Powers shot at a large buck running through the brush, and this is the only deer that has been seen by any one. Tired, but had a good supper to night. And this is evening of the third day from home. Monday, Nov. 11. Last night the wind blew a . gale that made the tall oaks creak and groan, and the rain came down in sluices, but the new tent Burke had given us stood the storms and the rain beat against it in vain. All nature was in disharmony and riot, and our fifty hounds howl ed in unison with the storm. The camp is almost afloat this morning, and our canvas boat, also a present from Burke, rides in the subsiding waves of the lake, which dance and heave in the golden radiance of the rising sun, for it is clear once more. Made all of the drives south of camp, but nothing done. Had up five or six deer and Pendleton shot at a doe in the drive, and the dogs took up the chase and carried her across the lake by our old camp and through the, woods into Hand lake. It has been a fruitless day for game, soma raooits and uucks are an. Charley Barker, with a wagon, went to Cheatam lake to see the fishermen there seine the same. . They have a seine five hundred yards ' long and are catching fish for the market. While Barker was there they made a haul and caught fully fifteen hun dred pounds of merchantable fish and twice that amount of the unsale able kind. He brought to camp a fine lot of good fish and two enor mous alligator gar full seven feet in length. Charley pays it beat any thing in tho fishing line he had ever seen. Arkansas is a land of water, and consequently of fish. Mr. Joe Jones, McDowell's menu and a good hunter, is in camp to night. Clear and cool. (To be continued.) Illinois. Kentucky.

U. Leddettkr. nlV,2wd BOARD OF TRADE MEETING. Its Action With Reference to the Canning Factory. The Question to Bo Thoroughly Investi gated With a View of Definite Future Action. The Board of Trade meeting was not largely attended last night, but it consisted of some of the most solid, enterprising citizens of the city, who are taking a lively interest in the canning factory proposition. The general idea seemed to prevail that it would be a splendid enterprise for the city, and that it was a thing that every one ought to take some inter est in, and great surprise was ex pressed that there was not a large turn out. Vice-president J. J. Crusman called the meeting to ordei and made a stirring speech. He felt dis appointed and mortified to find the business men taking so little interest in a matter of so great, importance to the trade and general interest of the community. It looked as if every one was waiting and depending on others, and that the cnterpriso of the city was coming to a dead halt. It occurred to him that people would certainly feel enough interest to give a matter like this some Investigation and the town needs to be waked up. Mr. Storra appeared before the board and in a conversational way described the character and opera tions of the canning system and aroused much feeling and investiga tion. Messrs. M. II. Clark, J. M. Bowling, W. O. Brandon, Matt Gracey, Ed. Rohb and others ques tioned Mr. Storra as to various things and his answers were all to the point and full of interest, impressing the value of such enterprise. Mr. Storrs gave au account of one factory in a small town in Texas, made up by stock subscription, which was so man aged that the stock subscribers were never called upon for a single dollar of their subscriptions. The stock was taken to a Forth Worth Bank, which advanced the money as it was needed, carrying the concern through the seasons, and at the end the stock and alt indebtedness were paid up, and tho company had $1,000 to its credit. This was a small plant, and capital stock $G,000. Still he did not think it most advisable to start in that way. At least half of the stock should bo paid in. The questions of mar kets, machinery and growth in the business were generally discussed. Mr. Storrs exrlained that it was not the greatest amount of complicated machinery that was worth the most. It was the quality and character of the machinery, and he defied any one to produce $5,000 worth of machin ery that would employ 200 hands, infuse so much life in business and confer so great a blessing as would the canning business. This was the idea that seemed to". fire the enthus iasm of the meeting. The ienso of the Board was that no action should be taken until the citizens could be waked up on this matter to a thor ough understanding and investiga tion of the merits of the enterprise. On motion a committee of three was appointed to draft resolutions ex pressing the sense of tho meeting'. The (-hair appointed M. II. Clark, J. M. Bowliig and Matt Gracey, who reported as follows : Whereas, This meeting is much disappointed at the small attendance of members to discuss and act upon a matter worthy of tho enterprise and capital of the city of Clarksville, therefore be it Resolved, That the city papers be requested to publish an urgent call upon all members of the Board ot Trade to attend the meeting called for on Friday next, at 7:30 o'clock p. hi., and invite all citizens not mem bers of the board to t.ttend said meet ing. Second, That each member present at this meeting will consider himself a committee of one to visit personally members of the board and citizens generally, with a view of securing a large attendance at fhe next meeting. M. II. Clark, J. M. Bowling, Matt Gracey, Committee. The board adjourned in accordance with the above resolutions. M. V. Ingram, Sec'y. Mile's Nerre and Liver Fills.

Qholson's Shoes Narrowed Down Somewhat From Yesterday. The race for the office of Clerk and Master of the Chancery court seems to be narrowing down between Q. C. Atkinson, Jr., and H. P. Gholson. F. D. Daniel who was yesterday a candidate for the office withdrew later in the day leaving the race be tween the gentlemen mentioned above. He says he did this because he was a friend to both parties and hated to humiliate them, crushing their aspirations at one fell blow by deafeating the whole field. He Is now standing off as a disinterested spectator watching the contest. It was decided late yesterday even ing not to hold a meeting of the bar on the question, owing to circum stances, consequently the candidates are hustling for individual support. The Leaf-Chronicle is reliably in formed that the bar is about evenly divided between the candidates. Electric Hitters.

A large congregation greeted Evaneelist Sharrard last night at the Christian church to hear "The Evi dences of Pardon." He took a dif ferent view from that of many upon this subject, showing that the evi dence of pardon consisted not in fe ling, but in the truth of God's promises to every obedient believer. That if a man dors God's will, feel ings will take care of themselves. The man who does right feels right. God's promises are sure to all who obey. His sermon was replete with telling illustrations frorj real life. The ordinance of baptism was ad ministeied by the pastor. Preach ing to-night; services at 7 p. m. It Should Be in Every House. J.

Porter Very ear Mr. Cleveland. Col. Jas. A. McKenzie slipped Into the city.for a few hours last evening, partly on business and to exchange greetings with his many admirers hert. A Leaf-Chronicle reporter had the pleasure of hearing him talk while the barber was engaged put ting the few hairs he has yet remain ing on his head in shape. lie talked about everything, from Victor Hugo to the World's Fair, dwelling at length on theecent tussel the Dem ocrats had with the enemy. . Aside from the gratifying knowledge that the.ticket was elected, Col. McKenzie draws consolation from his strong conviction that Democratic success will be permanent. New York and Indiana are no longer pivotal Bt&tes. Democracy can give thwu to the Re publican party and still ekct a" presi dent. Tammany Hall has been in the habit of dictating terms at the national conventions. Now this or ganization is a big club and nothing else, holding about the same ground in a national contest as the Watterson or Bandanna clubs of Louisville. Davenportism In New York and Dudley Ism in Indiana can no longer elect a president of the United States. Illinois, Ohio and Massa chusetts are Democratic to stay. New blood has done the work. The old men, wedded to Republicanism, are dying out and their places are being filled by young voters who are in every way broader in their views and are against Republican robbery of the people. Col. McKenzie thinks these States owe the revolution to this new blood, and that it has come to stay. Illinois will be the strong hold of Democracy In the future, Chicago In l'JOO will be the second city in the world in point of pop ulation. New York will take a back scat and Chicago will be king. Col. McKenzie talked along this line Tor some time and drew a 'rainbow pic lure for Democracy. "Have you made a slate for Mr. Cleveland's Cabinet yet ?" asked the reporter. "No," he replied, "I am for tho newspapers making the first slate and old Grover Cleveland the sec ond." "Do you think the South will be represented In the Cabinet?'' "That Is a question I am unable to answer, but I will say this : If Ten nessee is recoguized in maklug up the Cabinet, you may look out for Ex Gov. Porler. Ho Is very close to Mr. Cleveland and is a great man. There Is no tellir.g, however, what Mr. Cleveland will do on this line, ilo will choose good men, though, and Tennessee hhs an admirable cit izen in the person of Jus. D. Porter." Further than this Col. McKenzie would venturo no predictions as to the Cabinet. He will leave the last of the week for Bloomington, III., to spend a wet k with his cousin, Hun. Adlal E. Stevenson, Vice President elect of the United States. Col. McKenzie has been resting from his hard work during the cam paign, remaining at his country home near Oak Grove, Ky., with his family. After spending a week at Bloomington, he will go to Chicugo to see if the place has changed any since the landslide. Better Than a Fortune.
