Pay Member J. K. Campos. Jr., of the
Blues, was the next wltmss, and hi* story
of the trip of th* company to I>oul*vllle
wa* followed with interest. Beginning
with the Mart from Savannah. Mr Cam

had given strict order* that no liquor*
were to be allowed In Ihe car*, yet the
train had not gone l> tnllrs before a bot
tle was op. ned by a lieutenant of the com

to Capt. YYllson " Captain., you are
treating me like n nigger." Capt

that the commanding officer wa* not con

Private W W Jerrigan of the Blues
testified that he and Private Broom had
gone out to arrest Harris after his es
cape from confinement. They found their
man In a dry goods store, and he said
that he bail escaped because he was hun
gry and thirsty, as he could not get any
thing to eat or drink tn his quarters
Ospi. Cann asked the witness If he had
known of a set of men in the Blues on
the Dullsville trip who were known a*
the "Big Four.” The reply of the wit
ness was tn the affirmative, and he nam
ed hlmaelf and others as having enjoyed
that distinction. 1-leui Karthelmess be

had stated when on the stand that he
was not n member of that Interesting or

to a picture commemorative of the Blues'

contained a photograph of the "Big Four.'

had told ths company that any man
might stay over In Louslvtlle, though he
had understood that apeclal arrangement
and understanding to that effect would
have lo exist with the Captain. Harris,
he said, he had considered sober, nor was
he disorderly at any time h* had seen
him In the quarters.
Ex-Bergt. James Furlong. Jr . was put
ori the stand, and hta evidence and man
ner of giving It created a ripple of amuse
ment now and then thns the men on duty
had to suppresa. He remarked that Har
ris had been one of the worst treated
men he had ever seen, but the Judge ad
vocate told him he would prefer facta
rather than the wltneee' opinion. "I'll
give you plenty of facts." said the wit
