Augusta. III., July 16 As the time
approacht 8 for the republican congres
sional convention to nominate a candi
date for congressman from the Eleventh
district, we desire to say a few tbiug
from this vicinity regarding the candi
dacy of Mr. Uest, and to begin abruptly,
'What has Mr. Qeal ever done in con
Cress that he should aak for reelection?'
lie has never shown himself a states
man or a man of any particular ability.
His actions in this district since 1S88 in
making appointments for office have not
been to the interests of bis party in any
respect, but to mugwumps and sore
heads. The men he Las appointed in
this vicinity have eiven great dis it isf ac
tion, and men who have been life long
republicans will "scratch" hint in Nov
ember if they have a chance.' Soldiers
who served their country in the hour of
need have found no friend in Mr. Oest,
and we can name numbers who have al
ways been stra:eht republicans who will
never support him aeain. General dis
satisfaction exists against his re nomina
tion, but of course it availeth naught.
We do not, nor never intended making
any tight in the township or county con
vention against him, as it only makes a
bitter fight and causes bitter feelings
months befoie election. This we aim to
avoid, but we will report in full force in
November when there will be a good
chance for satisfaction.
Id our city here politics have been run
on the Boss Tweed style that is to say,
two or three men have always run things.
and the U. A. u. post has dictated for
the voters. If the people had their wav
they would without delay put their old
postmaster Ellis again in the office, but
Uest by his actions, has given it where
the public do not sanction it. An octopus
movement is now afoot with this Boss
Tweed ring to not only run the township
but county, but the .people will soon put
the movement in its crave as this Oest
crowd are a sore eye to them . You can
look for a strong change of votes here
We visited the village of Plymouth
few days ago; this place being in the cor
ner of three counties, viz: Hancock
Schuyler anu McDonough, people from
these three counties 'get their mail at that
place. There, we upon inquiry, found
"blood all over the moon" and great dis
satisfaction existing, all caused by an
unpopular appointment of postmaster.
The public there wanted Mr. Gest's ap
proval to hold an election for postmaster
They importuned him to effect a settle
ment on its merits and not listen to a few
little local non-influential politicians, but
after months of wrangling and fighting
he gave it to a man who was very un
popular and as a consequence Mr. Gest
split the whole party to flinters and in a
way it never will recover again until gen
erations grow up. To show you that
dissatisfaction does exist we will make
mention of this fact: St. Mary's town
ship is usually democratic by about 30
majority. In the spring of 1890 at the
township primary, good republicans
above reproach were nominated, but at
the polls the entire ticket was defeated by
majorities ranging from 90 to 120; it was
a Waterloo and the greatest surprise on
earth for the democrats. But it showed
the general dssatisfaction of an unpopu
lar appointment made by a Very unpopu
lar congressman. The same dose
will be repeated again this fall
and more addtd. In Lamont township
which gets all its mail at Plymouth,
the iepublicans were so split they did not
even put a ticket in the field, and there
are good, live, working republicans re
siding there, too. In talking with some
of them why they did not put a ticket up.
they said: "No use; everything has gone
to thunder." There was no attempt in
either ot these places to down Mr. Gest
at the conventions, although there was a
packed convention and a made-up slate
for Gest at Plymouth. It is the aim for
voters in this vicinity to do their work
and do it well. They do not aim to
bother conventions, then like a sick kit
ten vote for the man, not by a good deal.
Men, gray beaded old soldiers, who have
never been known to scratch, will see
that Mr. G. is not on their ticket, and not
only is this immediate vicinity up in
arms, but every township is likewise so in
the Eleveth district.
Your readers can rest assured that this
letter contains facts and truths that can
not be denied and such a state of affairs
does exist here. The writer is a life-long
resident of Hancock county, resides in the
vicinity and knos every turn of affairs,
and not only has he been a republican,
but has been one who never scratched,
but will "scratch" such a man as Gest,
and when the final call comes in Novem
ber Mr. G will he found wanting a few
more hundred votes.

The Union has probably escaped trou
ble by laying its errors at the door of the
Argus and Sheriff Silyis. In its Moline
column yesterday morning appeared the
Ibe statement published a few days
go that John Duden had been arrested
on the charge of embezzlement, is, we are
informed, untrue. Our authority was the
Rock Island Altars, which often obtains
information from Sheriff Sllvis and we did
question its correctness.
The A Rous acknowledges many cour
tesies from 'Sheriff Silvia as a public offi
cial, but he Jias not been in the habit of
furnishing this or any other paper with
erroneous information. Furthermore, it
is not the habit of the sheriff to make ar
rests in Moline upon the strength of war
rants issued from a justice's court,
though of course he is empowered to do
so, but such proceedings are usually left
to constables and police officers. The
warrant for Duden's arrest was in this
way issued, but before the arrest was
made and after the Akqcs bad gone to
press on that day, a settlement was af
fected by Duden and he was exonerated
of any criminal charges. The Argus so
stated the following day, and had the
Union, instead of depending upon an
other, pursued the case for further devel
opments, it would have given to its read
ers the additional facts, and would not
have been obliged to make the humiliat
ing confession it did in attempting to lay
its own shortcomings at the feet of the
Argus and Sheriff Silvia.
