Brave Men Who Write Anonymous
QUEER "MEANS OF POLITICAL WAR,
raid Party Leader Who are Ashamed
f Their Own TaetleaBlz Borars
and Men Wht M'oald Like to Bonn.
It ha9 not occurred before in the bias
tory of local or congressional politics in
this district that so much mud -slingiog
has been indulged in by the opposition to
a popular and winning candidate as has
up to this time characterized the nature
of the warfare of tbe managers of tbe
Gest campaign against" Mr. B. T. Cable.
Tte Union was at the very outset turned
into a perfect cesspool for the accumula
tion of all that was vile, malicious and
hateful, and eyery member of the party
was invited, without regard to facts, de
cency or responsibility, to bring in his
filth and misrepresentation, that the Un
ion miht fling it. Nor has Mr. Cable
been the only object of attack. Everyone
who has been in any way prominent in
conducting this campaign, has been made
a turget for scurrilous abuse, malignitv
and personal attack. Not having the
courage in itself to conduct a vigorous,
respectable campaign, hiving no argu
ment under which to conduct it, and
no ability to withstand the penetrating
shafts of the opposition to the present
congressman, in its bewilderment, it
has thrown open its columns to anony
mous, ficticious and irresponsible cor
respondents, who have dragged into the
campaign a mass of stuff that does not
find a place in respectable journalism
under any circumstances.
"By their deeds yc shall know them,"
is an injunction of holy writ which is
quite apropos of the methods employed
by the Oestile bosses in the present cam
paign. The enthusiasm which prompts
the ardor of these bosses has been bought
and paid for and of the number who are
now eneaged in attempting y misrepre
sentation and mud-slinging to show why
Gest should be returned to congress.there
is not one who has not been paid either
by office or promise for his services. Take
the list of individuals who are actively
engaged in conducting Gest's campaign.
and they can all be found feeding at the
republican teat, which accounts for their
great display of patriotism in their various
communications and otherwise.
In addition to the free for all literary
efforts of the big and little bosses the
manner in which the federal patronage
jash has been employed to hip men who
are tired of Gest and his tactics into line
i an anominanie and scorniul as it is
amusing. Not satisfied with the attempt
ed intimidation of postofflce employes,
the bosses have enlarged their fields of
labor to the men who work on tbe island
where the party whip is being vigorously
applied, but thanks to the good judgment
and understanding and fearless disposi
tion of the men, several lashes are likely
to be worn out and much time spent be
fore this undertaking be accomplished.

In his speech at Aurora the other day.
General Butterfield sid that mortgages
were a blessing to the farmer. Tbe gen
eral is a leading republican and an able
lawyer, but he had to say something to
the farmers when they were demanding
to know why they were driven to such a
course. His only plea for making the
statement was, that if the farmers didn't
have the farms, why, they couldn't mort
gage them, and that if they didn't have
the credit, they couldn't run in debt! And
yet there are some farmers who will ac
cept that brazen affront and cst their
votes to continue in power the party that
robs them first and insults them after
wards. It practically says to them: "Yes,
we rob you, but those of you who belong
to the party will vote for us, anvway
You would rather be robbed than to vote
agrtiost us. We are the grand old party.
Some thirty years ago we did our share
in putting down a rebellion, and you
helped us to do it. We ha:c never
done much since except to boast
of our glory in the past and make
the taxes higher wherever we could, but
we do that so that the eastern manufact
urer may get rich. You would rather be
poor and struggling, wouldn't you, and
vote for the party than have prosperous
times ami vote the other way?" And when
.the one to whom this is said makes an
swer that he thinks the party might
change its policy so that tbe manufactur
er wouldn't get all, thus leaving him poor,
he is told that be is ungrateful and is
falling away from the faith, which con
sists of some doubtful traditions.
The farmer has himself to blame for

"The republican press of the district is
)ust now injuriously engaged in the
pleasing pastime of telling their readers
that there is no opposition to the reflec
tion of Mr. Gest to congress that repub
llcans all over the district are enthusiastic
in his support and that his election is a
foregone conclusion. If these papers
really desire the election of Mr. Gest they
would do well to waKe up to a realization
of the fact that there is a very decided
opposition, and dissatisfied republicans
can be found in every township in the
district. Fancied security has oftimes
ciused defeat, and if Mr. Gest's friends
a'low themselves to be persuaded that
victory is sure they may awake to a bit
ter disappointment. Macomb By -Htand-rr.

The tirand Opportunities to Aeeom.
pany the Coming of the Hennepin
Wm. H. Holmes has written the Dav
enport Democrat a stirring communication
on the opportunities which are to be of
fered with the coming ot tbe Hennepin
canal. He says for instance:
Perhaps few realize the full significance
of this movement, and certainly no one
can predict the extent of its value to this
locality, which will hereafter enjoy spec
ial benefit as a shipping, manufacturing
and commercial center; the terminus of
water rates from tbe sea boar JT to the Mis
sissippi, and to a connection with rail
roacs to all points west to the Pacific,
more especially to the great graio produc
ing regions of the United Slates, with but
a single transfer, and at reduced freights;
for all rail rates will be cheapened, even
for merchandise which never floats on tbe
waters of this canal. This, with the re
suiting enlargement of the home market
for near-by products, will Btill further
benefit Scott county and the tri-cities.and
secure local advantages not shared by any
river city between St. Paul and St. Louis.
The Hennepin canal unquestionably
means an early development of our now
wasted water power, which will find pro
fitable use in large manufactories on
cheap power, with lowest freight rates
between all markets. At the eastern
border of the city the same power can be
converted into electricity for lighting pur
poses, for propelling street cars, and for
driving just where convenient light
machinery, from sewing machines to
printing presses. This canal means
cheaper coal from the mines of Illinois
and Pennsylvania: stone from Lock port
and Joliet; timber from Lake Michigan;
iron and copper ore from Suptrior.which
cheap power will convert into freight for
numerous railroads to distribute; for the
Hennepin means that railroads now at
Peoria and east of here will not neglect
a point so attractive to the grain and
other products of the region accessible to
Davenport, and besides these new comers
are our own D. I. & D. will be started,
and extended to fields abroad. The Hen
nepin canal also means a new brid ;e, ca
pable of transferring the business of the
numerous railroad companies, sure to
come where great traffic attracts.
Your space would not admit enumera
tion of tbe many and varied advantages
to follow the construction of this short
link needed to cheapen the connection be
tween the granaries of tbe Mississippi
with the tide waters of the east; but all
these facilities will not speedily accrue to
this city without at least initiatory and
co-operative work on our prt. We must
not be laggards when the United Slates
inaugurates this great advance, and, in
justice to the long suffering agricultural
interests of the northwest, pours out mil
lions of the nation's treasure in a place
and way to make possible for us all these
permanent advantages. We must not
fold our arms and say. "all these will
now come without help." Truly they
may, in course of time, but too late for
the active portion of this generation if we
idly wait the movements of others less
The Hennepin canal alone is but tbe
alphabet of our future, prophesying and
making possible all that is required to
promote high and permanent prosperity.
but vigorous and persistent action on our
part will be required to spread out vast,
manufactures, enlarged and extended
commerce, expanded wealth and social
privileges, and a populous and beautiful
city whose acknowledged natural condi
tions of healthy location on a majestic
river, with beautiful scenery and sur
roundings, are supplemented bj the in
telligence, energy and enterprise of its
They'll Vote for t'nble.
Andrew Anderson, a gentleman who
writes to tbe press, claims to know just
how the Swedish vote of Moline will
stand in the congressional contest. He
informs Mr. Cable that be "isn't in il"nt
at all, and might as well make up his
mind to it first as last. Mr. Anderson re
iterates several times that although Mr.
Cable's father liberally endowed Augus-
tana college, tbe Swedes do not consider
themselves bound to vote for Mr. Cable
h i nisei f.
Mr. Anderson has ignored tbe main
point entirely. The Swedes, and other
citizens as well, will vote for Mr. Cable
not because his father was liberal toward
Augiistana colleire, but because his ideas
on the great questions of national govern
ment coincide with their own. They will
vote for Mr. Cable because they want a
man in congress from this district who
will represent them fairly, and not sell
them out to the millionaire manufacturer
of the east. They will vote for Mr.
Cable, because his views of the party on
the question of tariff reform are the only
logical views. They will vote for Mr.
Cable, because they are tired of a repre
sentative who votes at the crack of the
party whip and has not influence enough
to secure the passage of urgent measures
of a local nature.
Mr. Cable does not need to stand on
the record of bis father. He will be sent
to congress for the reason that the people
believe, and they have every reason to
believe, that he will represent faithfully
the interests of his district. , In his com
petitor the district has a representative
who has demonstrated his titter inability
to take care of his constituents.
With these facts before them, the
Swedes are not eoing to vote for Mr.
Gest, Andrew Anderson to the contrary
notwithstanding Moline Republican.

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put to

supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years the doctors pronounoed it a
local disease, and prescribed locbl reme
dies, and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it incur
able. Science has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore re
