anticipation of favors to corns or for a
substantial acknowledgment of past ben

fact remains, that while the peop;e his
constituents those who had ele ted him
and had a right to exptct that his legisla

! were demanding some consideration
in the matter of the bridge, Mr. Gest
was dotno what he could to banner and
injure them, in i rder that a siiigle firm,
or man, or corporation should reap the
benefit of this injiihtice. And when
the matter was taken up by othets
and the proper authorities at Washing

ordered to be opened. Mr. Gest was
asked in a spirit of mischief if he would
not give his assistance in the matter.
What aid he saf ? Why. thct it was no

then thanked the secretary of war for his
valuable consideration, in a set of resolu

associations, in which resolutions the tf
forts of Mr. Hs and Governor Gpar
were also properly acknowledged.
Mr. Gest was opposing tie opening of
the bridge at this time as he always had
been. Scott Wike, a cong-essman from

Here was Mr. Gest sent to Washington
in the interests of the whole people of this
district and yet he is found not only
ignoring their wants and requests, hut
actually working against them. He
cared no:hing for the people. He had a

went unheeded. An I yet that friend was

Perhaps never before in the west, or. at
least, in this portion of it, has there been
a more brilliant wedding than that which
took place last nlgbt at the Congrega
tional church, Moline, the high contract
ing parties being Mr. William Dwight
Wimati, son of Erattua Wiman, known
as the "King of Staten Island." and Miss
Anna Deere, eldest daughter of Mr.
Charles Deere, of that city too wtll
known to call for fuither comment.
The wedding has been the talk for
months and more than one pair of hearts
have beaten high in anticipation of the
event. Long before the hour set for tbe
ceremony the church began to fill gradu
ally, until finally when every seat was
filled the picture presented was a most
lovely one indeed. The organ was hid
from view with a wealth of plants and
flowers; the aisles were tastefully deco
rated and the seats set apart for the bri
dal party were particularly adorned. The
sombre 1 lack of the conventional dress of
the men and the full evening attire of the
women made a striking contrast, and
amid the many pietty faces, the flashing
of jewels and the bewitching feminine
raiment the scene was one to be remem
bered. The strains of the organ, the
vivid light, the buzzing of subdued
voices and pleasure depicted upon every
face made an inspirited hour which one
would wish to continuously dwell in.
At the hour appointed tbe clergyman
took bis place upon the platform ar
ranged for the purpose; the participants
in .he ceremony sloly walked from the
further door. the attendants separating on
either side; the bride upon the arm of her
father met her affianced at tbe foot of the
altar and tbe ceremony proceeded. It
was according to the ritual i.f the Episco
pal church and very impressive. The
responses from the bride and groom were
given in clear and happy tones, and at
tbe conclusion she turned to him with tbe
sweetest of smiles as she took his arm to
return to the carriage.
The dress of the bride need not be here
detailed, except to sav that it was of the
richest and most lovely character, and its
wearer throughout a queenly woman in
grace wore a countenance beaming with

J. M. Reardsley No. 2. who has iust re

when the chairman voted for Chicigo,
giving it to that city next year.
Instead of watting his time in again so
liciting the you s of the constituents he
has misrepresented in congress. W. II.

up a notice something like this: "Tired

same tactics in regard to apiointing their
