MASON IN MOLINE.
Rattll.KiitateMe.i. Made l, . Katt.
That congressional snake charmer.
Billy Mason, spoke in Moline last night.
He did not come to talk about lacts. but
to dwt 11 in fancy. Billy is a gocd talker,
a good story-teller and a capital compan
ion in a social boisterous way and gener
slly makes a good impression on a plat
form, and particularly so when be thinks
be can wade in. dashing the f icts from
right to left; that is, whenever lie thinks
it worth while to touch upon facts at all.
When Mr. Billy makes an assertion that
doesn't coincide with the facte he justi
fies himself by saying it is so much worse
for the facts. By this means Billy is aU
ways ahead. However, to one jp a tree,
it looks as if Mr. Gest would have ap
peared to better advantage if he had left
Billy at home, or placed him on the plat
form merely as an ornament am1, to whom
he could have pointed as a moml support
by bis presence as to what be was saying.
But he didn't do so and the people there
had an opportunity of observing the dif
ference between a man of a ttivity, of
glibness of tongue.and one who finds it a
difficulty to express himself in an ordina
ry language even .
Mr. Mason told what Gest hd done in
congress, but as everybody knows that it
is not necessary to repeat it. and it is dol
lars to nickels that Mason's attention was
not drawn much towards Mr. Gest in
Washington. Mason bad nil ho could at
tend to himself. He was drawing $5.
000 a year from his Chicago constituents
to look after their interests, t.nd among
these was to see that the Illinois Central
railroad did not encroach upon the rights
of citizens there; and at the sane time he
was drawing t2.000 a year from the same
railroad company as one of tit attorneys,
to see that the interests of Chicago peo
ple in the same matter were stolen or
bartered away. This will to some extent
go to show what a faithful mhn Billy is,
and how his word may be implicitly re
lied upon, particularly in desperate
cause which he found himself champion
ing at Moline. And it also g.ies to show
the meeting of congenial sp rits in the
same line of action Mason bunding over
the interests of Chicago to its enemies,
Gest handing over the interests of
the people in the Rock Island
bridge to the ferry compuny. Two
souls with but a single thought, two
hearts that beat as one.
Mr. Mason took a spool ( f thread to
illustrate the tariff question ind said for
many years we had to pay t n cents a
spool for English thread. Th.-n we asked
for a tariff on thread and e got it and
now this country manufactircs abetter
thread at five cents a spool. He omitted
to explain that if this conntrj cou'd man
ufacture a spool of thread fur five cents,
thus showiBg that American industry and
American machinery could beat the
woil.i, what was the necessity of placing
a restriction upon the foreign article?
With the spool of thread disposed of.
Mason left the tariff and plunged into the
Force bill and showed what a beautiful
thing it was. Of course, scuthern out
rages came in for notice. It would
scarcely do to come all the way from
Chicago to enlighten the people
in Moline and not speak . of the
terrible people in the sou b. The old
soldier, too, was not forgot en. At the
mention of him Mason tlm st wept, the
strain on his sympathy was- so severe.
But be got over it and sai 1 he would
rather see the country poin; to the bow
wows and all Uncle Sam 's notes protested
than to see old soldiers without means.
In fact, Billy would see tht Illinois Cen
tral railway mortgaged before the old
soldiers should want. Thai's the kind of
a man Billy is at times.
But Billy bad to tell a whopper before
be got down. He said the eight hour back
pay bill had been passed, and we were in
debted to Mr. Gest more thin anyone else
for this grand victory. Taking into con
sideration the fact that this eight-hour
bill did not pass, one c&a think of the
man and his methods who said it. If he
had said that Gest was tho cause of the
sunrise every morning. Gest would
have nodded assent, and told Billy to go
on. Telling a downright Hi; to the work
men who were assembled to hear him did
not inconvenience Mason in the slight
est. It was a good joke on the work
men, and Mason does so lore a joke. To
pay these men under a law thai does not
exist to pay them. Mason said it would
take three million of dollars, but what of
that? They should have their money if
it took all of the revenue of the
United States. As no one threw any
rotten eggs at the sneaker. he
went on. He must have thought them
fearfully ignorant or he v-ould not have
told them a downright lie, especially as a
few moments before Gest had admitted
that the bill had not become a law, but
that he bad hopes of it tometime in the
How Mason must have chuckled as be
entered bis room last night. "I have
stuffed those fellows in an awful way,
but they'll believe it. Am I not a con
gressman fresh from Washington where
I have bad a tussle with Reed, and has
my name not been on evi ry body's tongue
for a good while back? They are gulli
ble suckers will bite at anything a man
says if they learn he has a name. And
I'm Billy Mason, and I've got a name, you
bet. Here, waiter, bring us another sour.
Dasi the expense, it aU comes out
of the campaign fund. O what a big
fraud the whole thing is. In some places
I dare not be so audacious, but what's the
difference? I'm Billy Mason, I am."

Messrs. Buckingham and Walker, of
the Holmes syndicate, were in Davenport
yesterday talking over the $500 license
clause in the ordinance of that city. It
is probable that the matter will be all
fixed up in a satisfactory manner. One
of their reasons for placing the power
bouse in Rock Island, and the principal
reason, was in order tt at they might be
as near as possible to the center of all
their lines. The electi ician had advised
them to place it here instead of Daven
port, as was first intended, claiming that
it would be difficult to carry the power to
the extreme end of tho Moline line with
the power house in Divenport. Again,
If the power bouse were located on their
property there, they would baye to build
an elevated railway through the alley for
a distance of two blocks in order to get
fuel where they want it. This would be
objectionable to the ci izens living in the
vicinity. Besides, they wanted to be as
near the river as poisible, nearer than
they would be there. ' The company Is
very anxious to put toe lines in Daveni
port and this city m o oe rat ion as soon as
THE ROCK ISLAND
WbCuir the War?
Editor of tbe Autn-
The general impression throughout tbe
north is that tbe southern leaders who ad
vocated and carried into effect secession
were responsible for tne civil war that
drenched American soil with tbe life
blood of its bravest citizens. Confining
ourselves to the year 1861 and the pre
ceding administration, no other verdict
could be rendered. But to examine into
tbe causes from the time of the formation
of the government until the great conflict
opened in all its fury that contributed to
this result can we in justice hold tbe
southern politicians as reprehensible as
the anti-slavery agitators of the north?
Human bondage is wrong. In the earlier
days of this nation every state permitted
slavery within its borders. But as it was
not so profitable in tbe wheat and corn
growing states as in those that produced
cotton, the slaves north of Mason's and
Dixon's line were sold to the planters
further south. The northern slave bold
er j obtained value received for their hu
man chattels. The voluntary abolish
ment of this monstrous evil in these states
led the northern people to look with dis
favor upon a system that they had cher
ished. Anti-slavery societies were formed.
Had these organizations proposed to re
imburse the slave-holders of the south to
an equivalent of what northern owners of
bond men had received, there woul 1 have
been no uprising of tbe south to perpet
uate their ownership untrammelled in
The northern agitator demanded as
slavery in itselt wsb wrong and contrary
to the nineteenth century interpretation
of the bible on that point, it should be
abolished in every portion of the land. A
different or prescriptive construction of
the scriptures was prescribed by southern
churchmen. The planter regarded the
theory of the abolutionists from a bibli
cal standpoint as un orthodox. lie also
considered himself entitled to an equal
compensation for whatever chattels he
owned; that the constitution guaranteed
him in as tbe farmer owners bad received.
Self preservation is tbe first law of nature
whether in an equitable or unjust cause.
Human nature is such that man will ads
vocate and defend, even in an unjust
cause, that which if be were deprived ot.
would be a pecuniary loss. Thus we find
the slave-holder in 1861. The theoretical
conflict bad been waging for years ben
tween the abi lition and slavery leaders.
Who were to succumb? It was only a
question of time. Slave limits had
reached their utmost boundary. Tne
undeveloped north would be carved into
enough states that tbe constitution would
be so amended that slavery would be abol
ished. The rebellion was a necessary
consequence. Were tbe slave-holding
politicians who opened hostilities in de
fense of their own or posterity's property,
as culpable as tbe anti-slavery incen
diaries who had driven them to
this step. There is always an under
lying cause to an went of as
much magnitude as the war between
tbe .talcs. Can tbe attitude f southern
leaders at and immediately preceding tne
great conflict be attributed to them as the
originators and morally reprehensible for
this bloody strife? For example: Should
the great majority of the people of this
nation, not living off the proceeds of their
investments, but from wages received
from physical and mental effort demand.
as tbe average profit on labor did not ex
ceed 3 per cent, that all money loancrs
receiving more than 3 per cent should
forfeit not only excess of interest, hut all
interest and principal, because of loan
ing money at unjust rate? Would it le
right to confiscate the property of those
who had loaned money at rates permit
ted by law? Would it be just to deprive
the slaveholder, without compensation of
his human chattels that were permitted
Had the anti-slavery real agitators of
the horritls intestine convulsion that
shook this nation from center to circum
ference, advocateil that the government
should exercise its right of eminent do
main by condemning property in slaves
by a fair valuation at a reasonable future
time, would not the great slavery ques
tion have been determined without los9 of
blood at a fraction of the expense that it
has already cost? A certain class of pol
iticians are the bane of society in a re
publican form of government. Who are
tbe most loyal today to tbe theory that
this is a government for tbe people? Are
they southern politicians or are they
those of the north, contending that the
people should not conduct their own
elections? E. S. Gikbs.

Mr. Gest is a promising politician. Up
at Moline last night he Was giving the
workingmen lota of promises and taffy.
He told them a very unnecessary thing
that the back pay bill had not passed.
This was tbe bill about which tbe friends
of G?Bt were flinging tbeir bats in the air
about and getting ready to erect an ap
propriate monument of brass to tbe man
who was wearing himself out in Wash
ington in behalf of the laboring man.
Now Mr. Gest tells them it is sure to pass
next session sure. And he also told
them be wss interested in two other bills
one to prevent the importation of for
eign labor, and the other preventing the
employment of convict labor. So the
workmen ought to feel happy. If Mr.
Gest interests himself in these measures
that is all that is necessary. Should be
feel interested in building a railroad across
the Atlantic the work would be under,
taken and accomplished. Tbe only thing
needful would be to let tbe world know
he waa interested. When that is made
clear everything moves on to success.
O yes, Mr. Gest is a solid man for the
workman about election time.

A Lie Xalled.
Some of ibe papers of this congres
sional district delight to expand on Ben
CaMe's vast railroad property and m
nopolistic interests. They de'igbt to
create tbe inference that Mr. Cable is
identified with the great railroads, and
that his property interests are against the
interests of the people. With great
unction they then announce the conclu
sion that Ben Cable is not a fit man to
place in tbe seat of a congressman.
Unfortunately for this elaborate chain
of reasoning the premises are entirely
false. Ben Cable has not a cent of in
terest in any railroad directly or indi
rectly. He docs not own a dollar of
stock in what is known as the Cable rail
way system nor in any other railroad
whatsoever In view of this fact the
"monopolist" argument falls pretty flit.
It is not to be expected, however, that
the republ can press of tbe district will
cease to circulate the charge against Mr.
Cable just because it happens to be false
Cable has a clean record and he stands
before tbe people on solid ground. It is
difficult for bis enemies to find fault with
him and slick to tbe truth at tbe same
time. They are determined to find fault
and so they promptly and gracefully sac
rifice tbe truth . But voters should be on
their guard. There are undoubtedly
some who withhold their support from
Mr. Cable solely for Ihe reason that thev
believe him to be a "railroad" man in all
his sympathies. This is entirely a mis
apprehension. Mr. Cable bas no interest
in any railroad Moline liepitlllcan.
