The twenty-fifth annual picnic of the
Rock Island County Old 8ettlers associa
tion is being held on the grounds of the
old Rodman place t the head of Twen-ty-sUth
street today. The pioneers are
gathered together in front of the old
Rodman homestead now owned and occu
pied by Judge Se.irle. and at 10 o'clock
this morning the customary exercises
were opened with prayer by Rev. Gilman
Parker, of Moline, after which the retir
tng president. Mr. W. H. Edwards, de
livered a short valedictory address, speak

1867, the year after its formation, had
285 members, the number having been
increased since untl the roll enlisted 84

ACCBPTO.G THE CANE.
In accepting the president's cane, Mr,
L. D. Edwards spoke of his residence in
the county as having dated back fifty-one
years when he came all the way from the
green hills of Yen lont by team, of the
joy it afforded hirr when be first saw the
Mississippi and beheld all this beautiful
country skirting its banks like a garden
of Eden. He related many interesting
reminisences of thi pioneer days.
The general bus ness of the association
followed and just before the conclusion
of the morning session
XI. j m'eniky
was introduced and be addressed
the pioneers in the following language:
Mr. President, LJie and Gentlemen:
It affords me gn at pleasure to be called
upon by this organization to deliver an
address to you today- 1 wish to make
and explanation, however. An old settler
s one that settled in tnis county previous
to 1845. I should feel disappointed if
rr.y lady friends especially should be led
to believe that I -settled here so long
ago. In fact I ne"er did settle here, for
this is the county in which I grew up
from an ancestry that settled in the coun
ty in 1842. Hence this is probably the
reason that I was (.elected to talk to you
One of the objects for which this asso
ciation was organized is to keep green in
the minds of our people the early days iu
Kock Island county, which in itself is a
praiseworthy object. When you pioneers
Qrst came to this county you found it an
mmense wildernet-s and as far as this ad
dress of mine is crncerned. would that it
were a wilderness still. It has been the
pride of all countries and nations to mark
tbe memories of the past by monuments.
etc., and why should there not be a mark
of some character to the heroes who set
tled np this county uod-r our free state
and government. In 1818 Illinois was
made a state, from the territory of the
great northwest; in 1833 our county was
set apart from Jo Uavies of which Galena
was the county sett, since which our par
ticular history is t mnraced. It is one in
which any people may well feel proud,
and it is one upon which also we do not
often reflect. N e in our zeal for
temporal welfare, do not stop to
nvestigate or render thanks to the
persons that foimed the nucleus of
this people. All honor Bhould be con
ferred upon the eitrly settlers of Kock
Island county. It was they who formed
the early society f-om which we an largely
draw even at this day. No truer saying
was ever repeated than that "as the twig
is bent, so the tree is inclined." The
Dioneers of this county formed a splendid
society. The people were always known
for their intellige ice, honesty, sonriety.
hospitality and el omenta that are so es
sentiul to the inhuhitants of counties as
to the family. I'rom these surroundings
the pioneers have reared their children,
and made them good intelligent, honest
citizens and ornaments to society. So
all the good citizens that came later were
soon assimilated in the society of the
county. A very neighborly harmonious
neoDle are found In the residents or tnis
county both young and old. Do we
properly appreciate the grand and
NOBLE ACTfc OF THE PIONEERS
of this county is a question I have fre
quently thought over. Is not theirs a
debt or gratituua mai ou nevei on re
paid? In a epi itual sense the utmost
freedom of reliui m has always been tol
erated; and no great bigotry exists each
and every member of our community can
worship God as he chooses without fear
or hindrance or being ostracized by tbe
pioneers or their children; this is a great
boon to any people. The political divi
sion of the county has also been the oc
casion of no diiiruptions. At all times
there has been a strong minority that was
never afraid to express their sentiments
hv free speech and a fair ballot with an
honest count, thu result declared favora
bly t all concerned, and all are anxious
to see the ones li gaily elected qualify and
serve the people in an official capacity.
Those are a few of the blessings to the
society of this county that have been left
to the present reiidents Dy no email sac
Reflect what ii required to make even
a fertile country blossom and blow into
the high state of cultivation and progress
in thin countv. The Dioneers bad lo mre-
an the pleasures of their childhood. The
pleasures of chil Ihood surroundings were
sacrificed schoolmates, neighbors, cous
ins, uncles, aunts, brothers, Bisters and
narenta were bade good bye to with all
the fond recollections of the pleasant
passed in thote loving homes, to
i.ke a iournev into the great west to
make a new hone in this locality. The
means of transit in those days were not
th nresent luxurious coaches ana run
man sleepers, bit the canal boat, sailing
vessels and steamboats just being
brought into use to a limited extent. The
prairie schooner was the most used in
those days, where the borne seekers could
afford to purchase ibem, while not a few
came a great portion of the distance on
foot over bill and dale to the beautiful
and substantial county of Rock Island.
In those days a different test was applied
to the lands on which a living was to be
made than now. The reason was, there
had been no coal discovered anywhere in
the west, and transportation from tbe
fields of Pennsylvania of course ai that
time was utterly out of the question not
to be thought of for a moment by prac
tical people. Neither was there then in
vented windmills to pump the water for
the stock. Hence locations must be well
supplied with water and wood to consid
erable extent and the great prairies
were passed oyer to come here where
water.timber and fertile soil were obtained.
THE TRIALS AMD HARDSHIPS
of the sturdy pioneers were innumerable
that braved the 6torms, the heat and cold
of this changeable climate. The only
bouses were constructed ef logs, and
those not BcientiUcilly built on many oc
casions. But tbey were an indomitable
people; there was no turnback; it was
push, press onward more towards sue
cess, and success would come. It did
come. None of the old residents
of this community ever gave up
in dispalr to return from whence
they came, yet the obstacles were
of the most numerous no markets
near for the products of the field or shop.
The means of transportation were then
very poor only for a few months of the
year, and that down the Miss's-iippi
river where nature and civilization never
did intend our productions should go. It
was many years before the railways were
built east to connect wiih the Atlantic
seaboard. But they struggled on against
disadvantages that could not now be
named, until the many advantages we
now have surroundiug us.
The population of the county has con
tinually increased from year to year as is
shown by every census that has ever
been taken. The farming townships
fourteen in number are not keeping
pace with the city's progress; their popu
latioo is now increasing the cities. But
those magnificent cities built up in tbe
last few years Rock Island and Moline
and the healthv increase that continues
in those cities bids fair for their future
with the county. Here is the largest
manufacturing center west of Chicago in
Illinois. and now Chicago has been named
the fair city by our national congress.
Its success has been marvelous and phe
nominal. The state of Illinois has been
advanced to tbe third state of the union;
all the barren plnces of the west
are blossoming fourteen new states ad
mitted northwest of Illinois. This
progress has gone on until today.
Unless this organization takes in
hsnd the matter of writing up a
history of the early settlement of this
county. I believe it will never be done,
and unless it is soon started the tradi
tional information will have been lost,
which is certainly the most valuable for
preservation, and would be splendid in
book form. Relics are gathered by
many county organizations and preserved
to show the progress and history. A
history would please me morn than any
thing else. There have been county his
tories published upon a representation
that tbey would contain tbe desired work,
but they are sadly lacking in this respect.
The opening feature of this afternoon's
programme was the address of
SHERMAN W. SEARI.E .
In opening his address Mr. Searle said:
"We woulJ apologize for our apparent
presum;tuousnes3 in addressing tbe pio
neers of our county. BiU.no, for though
we may !ack in experience, still we know
of what stuff you are made; of the hard
ships you have endured, and of the great
results you have accomplished. There
fore, you will pardon us." Then he
The waves are chasing down the stream
of time; they break in shining ripples
along her pebbly strand; they rise and
fall, advance, retard, and yet we are not
sure from watching on the shore that
they really do progress. Take now some
landmark on the further shore and sight
your wave, see whether it is the same
one or Rome other that takes its place.
You watch and finally say the 'billows
do roll on." Those are the shining
waves of progress you have watched
with impatient eye their movements for
many a year; you have seen their gigantic
swells, and yet were unable to tell that
tbey did move. But looking back along
the years that have gone by you see that
great changes have taken place, since
first the Great Father of Waters was seen
by civilized eyes; man has called to the
giant stream, and he has stalked forth
and shook tbe world with his powers; be
sang a beautiful chant to the lightning,
and she quit ber play at "hide and
seek" among the lowering clouds
and stepped forth to run bis cars
along their lice9 and haul his messages
from shore to shoro. That once grand
wild country where you sought your
home has been transformed. The very
bills you have subdued by earnest labor, !
by honest toil, where first you sowed your
seed in the the untamed soil and reaped
your scanty harvest, now are vast vine
yards of industry and thrift. here once
you chased the deer or shot the turkey
from the tree-top. you see the constant
rush of trailic. "You hear the bum of
busy wheels and keeping cadence with
their wild clutter the merry voices of the
free." Where once your cabin stood you

cocks of the new mown hay. Tue
streams you forded or crossed in your
canoe are spanned with mighty bridges
and throughout all that once wild land
the shrill shriek of the locomotive tells
you of progress. We would not cast a
shade upon the
DATS THAT HAVE OONE BY,
nor dim the lustre of tbe glorious work
that you bavc done. These things of
which we speak are but the coping, but
the capital of the mighty pillar you have
built. You formed its base upon the
solid rock, and step by step, by hardship.
toil and perseverance, until now it
reaches tbe blue vault of heavens high
dome. Great fathers, the time is fast
fleeting. It will not be long until
you leave this earthly work that
you have done. Already many of
your comrades have bid you farewell.
The thoughts of early childhood rest
upon us like maddening dreams. A hun
dred faces, our fancy sees that are no
more, metbinks their very spirits hover
o'er us here. But no, 'tis only fancy.for
they are gone unto that bourne from which
no wanderer ever returned. "Life is but
a narrow vale between the cold and
barren peaks of two eternities. We
strive in vain to look beyond the bights;
we call aloud and hear but the echo of
our wailing cry. From the voiceless
lips of the unreplying dead there comes
no word, yet in the night of death hope
sees a star and listening love can hear the
rustle of a wing."
The human heart is prone to love and
to revere. Those whose silvered locks
give warranty of a life the sun of which
is nearly set, of a race now almost run.
of a victory almost won. We see their
bending forms upon the street and onr
hearts unbidden throbs; our soul is filled
with love, our eyes with tears, for there
is some mother's mother, some father's
father about to turn and beckon back
there last and long farewell as the gentle
bow of heaven bends to bear them safely

The "Union" Arenas ('has. Hannsen
of Trlrkery, ana Andrew Waldman
of JLylnK Under Oath.
The Union of this morning for the
mere purpose of having the list word and
putting on as bold a front as possible
with reference to the embarrassing pre
dicament in which "One Who Knows"
has placed all the friends of Congressman
Gest. directs its attention, from its de
nunciation of Mr. B. T. Cable, though it
continues to abuse his dead father, and
attacks Mr. Hansgen for sharp practice
and trickery, thereby hoping to excuse
Congressman Uest of the discreditable and
exacting manner in which he pursued the
Waldmans for the share of the (500
which be had not earned, after be bad re
ceipted in full for all services in the case.
But the L'nion goes further and after
trying vainly for two days to show that
Mr. Gest was entitled to a third of tbe
$500, it says the statement of Mr. Andrew
Waldman under oath that Mr. Gest wrote
threatening letters to the Waldman 's is
untrue, thereby acknowledging that the
authorship of such letters would be some
thing worth denying. Nevertheless,
a paper is getting pretty desperate
when it accuses one of the honest farmers
of Rock Island county, a man who was
raised in the county and a republican all
his life of lying under oath, simply be
cause he happened to say something that
reflected very much upon the character of
Mr. Gest and it may be added to that
Mr. Waldman was not only old enough
to understand what he was doing, but to
