nection with an assertion which they
make in public print. A paper that
wilL permit the publication of a com
munication retlecting upon the personal
character of tnother and signed only by
fictitious name, has not yet learned
what should constitute honorable and
legitimate journalism. And such has
alwaya been t.he policy of the morning
paper published in this city; it prefers to
make its attacks indirectly and over the
shoulders of aoonymousnoss, fiction and
fraud to the ut;er disregard of all sense
of propriety, d -cency. fairness and truth.
But the matter to which allusion is
most particula-ly mide in this connec
tion appeared in the Sunday morning is
sue. Here it it :
Mr. Cable's railroad, which he claims
now to have never owned, killed the
lady's father and mniher. Mr. Gest
brought two suits for 5.00() each, which
the law clearly allows in such cases. Mr.
Cable got the poor woman in bis office,
made her believe shn had no case, of
fered her about $1,500, and got from
her a power of attorney and dismissed
the suit againtl himself. He beat the
woman out of nbout $ S.OOO.and has been
down on Mr. Gest ever since for daring
to bring suit against his corporation.
One Who Knows.
Nt w let's see.
Wholly convinced that the above, not
withstanding the self-assuring signature,
was a tissue of falsehoods and misrepre
sentation, the A rocs has awaited its
time to make a complete investigation
and place the tacts accurately before the
public. It is unnecessary to detail at
length the particulars of the sad casualty
which has been mido the occasion by
'One Who Kr ows" for an attack on the
dead as well at the living. Suffice it to
say that Mr. and Mrs. Waldman were re
turning from a funeral on Oct. 1G, 1877,
and were crossing the track on what is
known as Weaver's lane beyond Milan,
when they nut their fate. It was a
gloomy day a drizzling rain was falling,
and Mr. and Mrs.Walman bad their heads
wrapped in blankets, and were holding
an umbrella besides. As they reached the
crofsing an lnsomiog train on the Rock
Island & Mercer County road struck the
vehicle and Mr. and Mrs. Waldman were
killed. Suit as entered through Gest &
Parks at the January term of the circuit
court following, against the Rock Island
& Mercer County railroad for $5,000
damages. This suit was brought in the
name of Caroline Waldman, afterward
Mrs. James Patterson, and since, de
ceased, and who being the oldest of the
surviving children, had been appointed
administrator of the estate. But pend
ing the trial of the case, friends of the
Waldman children advised them to call
on Mr. P. L. Cable and seek a settle
ment. Thia i.hey did. Mr. Cable re
ceived them courteously, and while
he maintained that the road was not
liable for damages, owing to the
almost unobstructed view of the track
at the fatal crossing, the fact that
the engine bell was ringing and whistle
blowing, as Mr. Cable claimed, and that
Mr. and Mra. Waldman were very closely
bundled about, the ears; but he told tha
daughter that if he went into litigation
he would be obliged to put out consider
able money la attorney hire and he
would rather t ve her have it than the at
torneys. He therefore offered to settle
at $1,000. The terms were accepted and
together Mr. Cable and Miss Waldman
called at Mr' Cleat's office to conclude the
settlement, but Mr. Gest refused to
listen to it it was, finally consum
mated nevertheless, and Mr. Gest demand
ed that be receive a third of the amount
recovered, as lier agreement when he entered-the
case that of whatever was re
covered he was to have a third. Thia
was paid him as witnesslhe following

BUT THIS 18 NOT ALL.
The above contains considerable of in
terest that "One Who Knows" failed to
remember in the. concocted narrative be
so considerately furnished the Union
for its Sunday morning readers.
The facts herein appearing supple
ment in a most remarkable de
gree the story of Mr. Gest'a extreme con'
sideration for the poor woman of whom
'One Who Knows" is moved to speak
The present congressman, let it be borne
in mind, only demanded and received one
third of the money that poor woman had
received through a transaction with
which he had nothing to do only in the
light of remonstrating. But the half
has not yet been told, as we shall see
Behold the further evidences of Mr
Gest s extreme liberality and tender
hearted thought fulness for the poor wo
man for which he had already done so
much, and accompliHhed so much.
After the case had been entirely set
tled and Mi9s Waldman had received the
$1,000 from Mr, Cable and Mr. Gest had
gotten his fee and receipted for the same,
as in full for services in the suits of the
Mercer County & Rock Island railroad
company," Mr Cable sent for Miss
Waldman one day. and after doing as he
had done on all her previous visits
assured her of his deep sympathy in her
affliction told her that knowing that she
had been obliged to pay out a third of what
he had previously given her in settlement
of her claim to her attorneys, he desired
to make her a present independent of all
previous claims and settlements, and he
thereupon handed her his check for $500
another point which "One Who Knows"
forgot to record is his contribution to the
literary composition of the Sundav morn.
ng Union, but there Is more. v "
The omission last alluded to in "One
Who Knows'" little epistle, was. of
course, wholly an oversight actuated by
no more particular motive on bis part
than was his neglect to mention what is
to follow in this article. Notwithstand
ing that Mr. Gest had given Miss Wald
man a receipt in full for all legal services
which he did not render in the first place;
notwithstanding that Mr. Cable bad
waited until after the settlement before
he voluntarily gave her the additional
$500, and then bad it specifically under
stood that it was a gift to her
in view of Mr. Gest haying tak
en a third of what he had given
her in settlement: notwithstanding all
. Q -
this, Mr. Gest learned of the $500 present
and at once wrote Miss Waldman a letter
demanding one-third of the sum as due
him for attorney fees also, ne no doubt
Hitended this act as a reminder of his un
ceasing interest in the poor woman's wel
fare. The letter was of course ignored as
Miss Waldman held the receipt in full as
printed above for all services, but Mr.
Gest wrote another letter, and another
and several more,' some addressed to the
poor woman in whom he had taken such
kindly interest, and some to ber
brothers, in nearly all of which, however,
he insisted upon having his $166 66 of
the $500 and repeatedly threatened to
bring suit if the amount was not furth
coming. He continued these persecu
tions until Miss Waldman'a then Mrs.

for such they are, and "one who knows"
has not acted as a mere non de plume in
giving them. The Argus does not de
pend upon any such method of obtaining
information. In order to verify the actual
story of the transaction in all its
hearings, of which the 1'iiion'i
One Who Knows" gave but a glimpse,
and that through a bad'.y smoked lens, a
representative of this paper visited the
Waldman farm in Edgington township,
this morning, and there saw Mr. Andrew
Waldman, the oldest of the five children
living, and his brother Jacob, both of
whom fully corroborated the foregoing.
and in order to be positive, Mr. Andrew
Waldman on the suggestion of the press
representative, came to Milan and made
fliiavit as follows:

that in the matter of the suit brought by
my sister, Caroline Waldman, as admin

the R. I. & Mercer County railroad,
for the recovery of damages, that a set
tlement was effected through the In
tercession of Mr. Chas. Uansgen

that we made a settlement with Mr. P.
L. Cable for $1,000, out of which we
paid to Mr. W. II. Gest. of Gest & Parks,
Rock Island, $333 33, one-third of the
amount recovered as previously agreed
that be should have, and received from
Mr. Gest a receipt in full for all due him
as attorney; that after the settlement
had been made Mr. Cable sent for my
sister. Caroline Waldman, and made her
a present of $500 in addition to the
amount of the settlement; that Mr. Gest
afterwards heard of it from some
source and wrote us repeated
and threatening letters concerning a por
tion of the $500 which he said was due
him, alleging that be was entitled to one
third of the money Mr. Cable had given

The Union speaks in a wondering way
of Mr. Cable not attending a democratic

In the first place Mr. Cable is not in the
