H Milling the Truth la Malicious

The Union would endeavor to make the
public believe that it is trying to be de
cent. It ia a labor of more than ordinary
magnitude, but when it assumes the role
it should try t give it at least the
semblance of calor. It permits its col
umns to be used for all kinds of purposes.
Anyone who thinks he has an idea puts it
in form and hnnds it to the Union for
publication. In this there is method. It
is justifiable under the circumstances, as
long as it is an idea and not a mere ac
cumulation of vapor.
Some one wh is afraid to be responsi
ble for his irresponsible utterances, and
who signs hims- lf "Citizen," has much lo
say concerning I he editor of the Akqus
his actions, his motives and his general
attitude toward.i the public. In all these
matters there is nothing to conceal. The
public is already cognizant of them and
criticism is welcomed if not invited.
The man who discusses them
should attempt to be truthful and not
injure his position by a false statement.
ami above all hs should have the courage
of his convictions. A manly opponent is
something to be admired, but one who
hides his identity under a fictitious a p pels
lation is akin to the prowling sneak. He
would do a wro ijj for persoual gain or to
satisfy a person d malice. He is con
temptible in the eyes of the people and
must feel abasa l in self-contemplation.
Honest men abhor him and he is ever
suspicious of his own rectitude. The
malicious libels of such tainted excrescen -
ces commit their wrongs by misleading
the unthinking or those who are unacs
quainted with the truth. But "Citizen"
is a coward who speaks of "abuse and
misrepresentation" on the one hand and
of "calm and lespectful argument" on
the other. Of the latter he knows noth
ing; of the former he is an adept in his
own rude way.
What can ar yone think of the state
ments of this man, who is evidently
ashamed of himself, when he re
sorts to abuse of Mr. Cable? What
manner of mac is lhi who deals with
the truth in such a dastardly way? False
in one thing, false in all. Mr. Cable
needs no defence at tbe hands of anyone.
The petty rant or of this man without a
name can do n harm. It is adverted to
here to point out "Citizen's " littleness.
and to show tbe manner in which be
Listen - to this from that obscure
source: "We rever had a more faithful,
a more earnest, or more successful work
er in congress than William H. Gest." If
that is so, our shortcomings should at
once receive attention. We should be
stir ourself and endeavor to make a bet
ter showing. In what does the faithful
ness of Mr. Oe.' t consist? In the draw
ing of bis salary? Is there anything else?
In what is he earnest? In his endeavor
to get back to Washington? What has
been his successful work? Pray do not
mention the eight-hour bill again, be
cause tbe people must have laughed
themselves Weary in listening to the Union
upon that subject. If the workingmen
had retained Mr. Gest to go to Washing
ton and lobby against their interest, and
he bad done so, the effect would have
been much the same as far as any benes
fit to themselves is concerned.
Mr. Gest nee Is a newer champion, but
not a fresher one.

THE PLAIN FACTS?,
VgDcrrtimt Hayro Ioe Xot Mim-
repreaeat the Conditio of the Bark
Pay Bill to Obtala Voten.
Congressman W, I. Hayes, of the Sec
ond Iowa congressional district across
the river, is running for reelection. Like
Mr. Gest, of this city, he is seeking a
third term, but in his ambition to attain
that end be ia not misconstruing facts
and claiming the benefit of what he has
not done, nor is deserving of. Tbe Iowa
congressman ia frank to confess that the
Brewer amendment has absolutely killed
what little worth tbe original back pay
bill already possessed and rendered the
measure practically worthless, so far as
any good it may bring to the Rock Island
Arsenal workmen in the three cities, tbe
Union' "Republican" to the contrary
notwithstanding. It is aa much to Con
gressman Hayes' interests as it is to Con
gressman Gesl's to have tbe good will of
the island laborers who have been held
in long suffering and suspense, and yet
Mr. Hayes does not manifest a disposi
tion to deceive the workingmen, and to
make them believe that their chances are
better than they are, greatly deserving r.s
is their cause. The following is a copy of
a letter written by Judge Hayes to Sen
Washington, 8ept. 3, 1890 Hon J.
. Wilson. Washington. D. C My
Dear Senator: n the passage of the
bill in the bouse for the adjustment of
accounts under the eight-hour law, an
amendment offered by Mr. Brewer was
adopted, which practically kills tbe ef
fect or the bill as intended, in that it
would itself create a bar in most esses to
any claim for overwork. I am advised
that it would cut off all the workmen at
the Rock Island arsenal, as they were
practically forced to sign a contract to
work ten hours.
I think it would be seen at a glance
that if there is any merit in the bill at
all, it should not have this operation. It
is entirely out of keeping with the intent,
object and purpose of the law. I call
your attention to this, as we have a good
many of tbe claimants under this law in
Iowa, being connected with tbe Rock Is
land arsenal and works. Tours very
truly, Walter I. Hates.
The Dayenport Democrat says in thiB
connection that Congressman Hayes will
endeavor.either by amendment in the con
ference committee or by an entirely new
measure at tbe present session, to yet
provide for tbe proper compensation of
these men in the three cities.
WU0 SLEW CAUSE?
Hlain in the lloane of His KappoMed
Friend, aa Effort la Made to Lay It
at the Door olOlhrrn
The miserable coward whose vile com
munication the Union published yester
day morning, pretends to feel very bad
about Mr. Carse's defeat for mayor tbe
ast time be ran for tbe office. It is
surprising how the Gest republicans have
become attached to Mr. Carse, who has
been a football for all tbe various warring
elements of tbe party. It was largely
due to tbe opposition of Robert Bennett
and otber elements of republican pride
and strength that Mr. Carse was beaten
at the time in question. Two years lat
er through the influence of Gest's "ma-
sheen" gang, Mr. Carse was defeated for
tbe mayoralty nomination of his party,
while to bring matters down to a later
date and more familiar incident. Postal
Clerk Campbell, one of the foremost Gest
strikers in the city, knocked Mr. Carse's
legislative aspirations into a cocked hat,
and secured the nomination of his
nephew, Collins, in his place. These are
all pretty fair illustrations of how tar the
Gestites have interested themselves in
Mr. Carse's welfare.
As far as the Arocs is concerned it is
n no wise ashamed of its past course on
and matter of public concern, political
and otherwise, and any assertions that
its editor has made any remarks depre
cating the past attitude of his paper to
ward men or measures, are contemptible
falsehoods, and are known to be sucb by
whoever penned them.

following concerning a former Rock Isl

his brother-in-law, Mr. Salabury, of
Omaha, were out chicken shooting in tbe

chicken and ran. to pick it up. To do
this be laid bis gun down and after pick -ing
up the chicken, he returned to the
gun, and in taking it up it went off, and

be hardly knows how it was done, hut

more serious. They drove hastily to town
and had the fingers dressed and he ia feel

Gas Gallagher Killed on the
Poor Heavily Loaded ("ara Pasa Over
Hlaa-tSaapteloDa of foal Play The
C'oroarr's laqaeat and Verdict.
A river man named Gus Gallagher, was
run over and killed at the transfer track
of the R . I. & P. and C. B. & Q. tracks
on First avenue about 9:45 Saturday
night. Switch engine No. 6, of the R. I.
& P , in charge of Engineer Wm. O'Neil
and Fireman Eugene McAuliff, and under
direction of Night Yaidmaslcr Henry
Limburg, of the same road, had been
down to he lower saw mill and brought
up seventeen cars of lumber. Eleven of
these had been delivered to the C, R. I
& P., and six were switched over to the
C, B. & Q. at tbe transfer between Fif
teenth and Sixteenth streets, and the en
gine pulled back onto the Peoria tracks,
and after It had proceeded to the R. I. &
P. depot, Wm. C. Raisch, car repairer
for the C, B. & Q. went np to the string
of cars to inspect them. He
examined the south side first going east
and bad reached tbe fifth car coming back
when he found tbe body of a man lying
undrr the east side tracks. Mr. Raiech
notified W. H. BowkerTa baggageman on
the C, B. & Q , who was passing through
the yards and he after viewing tbe body
which was terribly mutilated as four cars
bad evidently passed over it, noti
fied tbe coroner and also the police head
quarters. Coroner ITawes soon arrived, as
did Deputy Marshal Long and Officer Hot
ter. The man heavily built, medium
height and appeared to be about thirty
seven years of age. and a stranger. A
letter found in his coat pocket disclosed
his identity as Gus Gallagher, of Keokuk,
Iowa. Tbe coroner ordered the remains
taken to Undertaker Knox's rooms, and
summoning as a jury C. W. Hawes (fore
man), Jonas Bear, Robt. G. Summers,
Geo. Long. Geo. Hetter and R. H Robb
and adjourned the inquest until yester

whom he had been associated Saturday.

Marcus Boyer, a river man, had known
the deceased as fireman on the J. K.
Graves all last season. Thought he bailed
from Keokuk. Was with bim all day Sat
urday and left him at tbe Franklin house
that night, when he was intoxicated.
Martin Funnell bad known the de
ceased for a year and a half. Saw him at
Frank Vogel's boarding house in the low
er end of town Thursday night, when he
said be bad f 150 and be displayed a large
roll of money. Knew he had a father
living at Keokuk.
The trainmen spoken of above were
examined, and Henry Limburg, night
yard master of the R. I. & P., testified
that tbe yards were well lighted, and that
he looked up the transfer track before
giving tbe signal to the engine to back
up. and everything was clear. The eni
gine bell was ringing constantly.
The jury, after considering these facts,
returned a verdict that tbo deceased
"came to bis death by being run over
on the C, B. & Q railroad
company's track at about 945
o'clock p. m.. Saturday, September 6, A.
D., 1890. in the city of Rock Island,
III., by the switch engine of the Rock
Isiand fc Peoria Railway company No. 6,
while transferring cars of lumber to said
transfer track of the C, B. & Q. Railway
company, and we further find that no
blame attaches to any one in the employ
of said Peoria Railway company."
A report gained currency this morning
that Gallagher had been murdered for bis
money and placed upon tbe track. Cor
oner Hawes went to Vogel's boarding
house this morning and examined the
dead man's satchel. The coroner found
thirty-five cents, all it contained, and all
that could be found on the man was a five
cent nickel. The theory of murder n
regarded by tbe police aa a idle one, the
supposition being that he was drunk and
attempted to cross tbe track ahead of tbe
cars, when be was knocked down.
Coroner Hawes has telegraphed to Keo
kuk the facts of the fatality and is await
ing an answer.
