MR. GEST'S BIG BLUNDER.
How tlie Present Congressman Lost
the Custom House.

Waal d bow have what Aaainer City
A cre&t deal of boasting is being done
by the Gest boomers about the wonderful
accomplishments of the present congress
man in securing an act making Rock
Island ti port of entry. It must be said
in all frankness that Mr. Gest has really
succeeded in accomplishing this end. but
in it is contained the sum and substance
of all h ) has done since he went to con
gress four years ago, and it is probably
due to this fact that so much is made of
his 6ucc ess in this regard among republi
cans. But it may be interesting to know
just he w much the present congress
m an '8 success goes for as it concerns
the port of entry bill. The public
was niade famtli-tr with the circum
stances which brought about Geat's port
of entry bill a year ago- last winter, but
it will le interesting to recall them now
that so much stress is being placed upon
the passage of the bill.
The original movement which was real
ly started by the Argus, was to secure the
removi.l of the custom bouse from Galena
to Rock Island. The matter was agitat
ed and finally Mr. Gest was communicat
ed with on the subject. Without looking
into thj legal requirements on the sub
ject, or without investigating it in any
way, S'.r. Gest wrote home to a citizen of
Rock Island the following letter:
Washington, Feb. 23. 1889.
It has been suggested to me that the
custom house at Galena ought to be re
moved to Hock Island. I believe it can
be done. If Rock Ieland. Molina and
Daven sort will send me a petition, as
strong' y endorsed as possible, I will try
to hav'j the change made. Will you look
after ii T Yours truly. W. H. Gest.
The letter was read before the
Rock Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation, suitable resolutions were adopted
in accordance with which a committee
was appointed to circulate a petition and
also to ask Moline and Davenport to aid.
etc. Secretary Medill. of the association,
expen led f 8 in preparing petitions, etc.,
and tbey were finally forwarded to Wash-
ngton as per request of Congressman
Gest. The name of Mr. F. E. Robbins
happened to be the first on one of the pe
titions and it had no sooner reached
Washington than back came the follow
ing letter addressed to him:
Washington. May 16, 1889. (
Sir: Referring to the petition of your
self ami others for the establishment of a
custom house at Rock Island and the dis
continuance of the one at Galena, I en
close herewith for your information copy
of a letter dated the 26th of March last
addressed to Hon. W. II. Gest, on the
same subject, from which it will be seen
that it will be necessary for Rock Island
to be created a port by legislative action
before this department can give consider
ation to tbe proposition submitted.
Geo. C. TicnKNOR,
Th s letter was turned over to Mr.Medill,
who read it before the association at its
next meeting and it was duly commented
upon by the A rugs at the time. About
the sime time Mr. Gest received tbe fol

Tliia correspondence having so com
pletely demonstrated Gest's ignorance of
the situation, but his failure to compre
hend his duty in the premises.the custom
home question was dropped. Congress
man Henderson, of Dubuque, alert to bis
city s interests, seized the opportunity to
profit by Gest's blunder and bad the Ga
ena custom house transferred to Du
buque, already a port of. entry. Now at
this late day comes Gest with bis port of
entry bill. It is well enough, but in the
met.ntime what was more important, to
wit: the custom house, has flown. If
Get t bad had any of the attributes of a
sta'.esman he would have bad the port of
entry bill passed before saying anything
about his custom housebill buthe didn't
know anv different and Rock Island is the
lostir by his blunder.
An Afternoon Itiatnrbanpn.
B. Henderson, of this city, and Frank
Rcbinson of Davenport, got into an alter
ca' ion and a scuffle in the Rock Island
bouse saloon at 6 o'clock last evening,
but the intercession of friends prevented
serious outcome. Manager Gaver, of
th3 hotel, induced the men to separate
and thus tbe disturbance was quelled. A
little while afterwards Robinson and John
MaDarrah, of this city, got into a fight.
w inch the Union says grew out of an at
temot made by McDarrah to extort money
from Robinson under the pretense that
failure to comply would 'result in his
(Robinson) being written up in the Argus
ir connection with the previous light
VcDarrah denies this charge, but if
h; is guilty of it Robinson was not
oily justified in striking him. but
should not let it stop there. There is a
n-medy at law for such fraudulent prac
t ees where attempted. The Argus has
no concern in any of the facta of yester
dav's . altercation, but its editor has
tjns to say that Mcparrah has no con
tection with the Argus in any capacity
end has never had, and if he is guilty as
(barged, be not only merits the severest
condemnation, but he has used the name
of tbe A Rous in a manner that will lead
him into serious trouble if repeated. The
Argus, as the public knows, does not
suppress any item of news under any con
nideration, much less permit a criminal
blackmail in its name. .

The Turnout to Welcome Vncle DleU
not What Joe fVonld Like to Haw
Uncle Dick Ogleshy, ex-governor of
Illinois, is in Rock Island today. The
majority of the people may not know it
but it is nevertheless true. He is here to
brace up the forlorn hope that Joe Haas
is conducting in the interests of W. H.
Gest, but really the demonstration of the
occasion has proven bo miserable, flat
and slim that Joe Haas came very nearly
leaving town on important business this
afternoon. In the first place it had been
planned to receive tht goyernor at the
Milwaukee depot'on his arrival with a
band. etc. The governor spoiled that
ittle scheme by arriving on the Verne
Swain an hour ahead of time from Ful
ton, he having spoken at Sterling last
ight. Then it was proposed to
ive him a farmers' reception at the
hotel. Tbe farmers failed to materialize
so that was a failure. Then it was des
termined to make a great sireet parade to
the square. There was do one to parade
and that was a failure. So tbe band was
sent down in advance, tbe governor fol
lowing a few blocks behind and walking
between two republican wheel horses
and their names were John and Joseph
John J. Reiraers, tbe unequalled intro
ducing orator, and Jos Hai8. chairman
of the republican congressional commit
A crowd of 150 people were assembled
about the stand and the governor spoke
of tbe scarcity of numbers at the outset.
But tbe rain came and one hundred of the
crowd left and so the meeting was a fail
ure. Bloom to L.eaT a.
The genial, jolly, jovial Bloom is about
to leave us. For seven years has his al
ways pleasant countenance bloomed over
tbe counter of the Rock Island house and
it blossomed at tbe Harper bouse for nine
years previous to that. Charlie has ac
cepted a position as assistant manager of
the Continents., one of the most centrally
located and best little hotels in Chicago,
and to that end has given up his position
as chief clerk at tbe Rock It-land house.
Manager Gaver has accepted his resigna
tion with regret, but be felt it would be
nfair to stand in Mr. Bloom's way of ad
vancement, and after Oct. 15 Charles will
let his light shine in tbe Chicago hostel
ry. His many friends not only here but
on the road will know where to stop
wben in Chicago hereafter.
