As the A rocs stated a few day. ago.
considerable inquiry has been made of
late as to the facts ia tbe
'Bishop Hill Colony Case" in
which Gest played so prominent a
part.- The Gest republicans, as has al
ways been their disposition, huve labored
in every conceivable manner to hush and
smother every reference to this matter,
so damaging to Mr. Gest, and which bes
cornea more so the more it ia agi
tated; but it was one of those things that
will not submit to supprension. Like
any other blemish on a man's personal
character, it is not Ueansable. and all the
remedies that can be apied will not re
move it. The republican comioee will
ljo down to bis grave with the stain upon
his character unrt moved a ad undimin
ished. But to the history cl this case,
which has been of Ute so fr queotly too
licited; the Moline Chlmtn of Nov. 1,
1886. gave it in the following concise
Along about 1S?G3 some trouble arose
concerning the Bishop Hill col ny lands
in Henry county, and shortly after Judge
Pleasants was elected by the republicans,
Wm. H. Gest. who bad' been one of the
hardest workers for Pieasat ts. was ap
pointed by that judge as a snecial master
ia chancery in the case. In thi case two
different decrees were filed, based largely
on GesU report, one dianietricllyDop
posed to the other. Tne first decree
found a Inrge sum sgtinst the trustees of
Bishop Uiil colony. The last decree e
oneraies the trustees and finis in favor of
outrageous attorneys fees on both sides
of the case, as well as Wm. U. Gest. fees
of about $9,000, and $16 0KJ which Gest
' called a "contingent fund." This finding
was against the poor Swedish working
men of the colony. The ot ly reason that
can be given for the riling of these two
decittioua is that, shortly after tbe making
of tbe first decree, some of the trustees
died, and it was found thf.t their estates
were insolvent. Hence th- attorneys, on
both sides, and Gest pooled their issues
and apparently entered into a conspiracy
whereby they charged tfce outrageous
fess for their services, amounting to
ahout $70,000. against the domes of these
hard working people. This case is now
pending in the appellate court of this
stnte. Hiram Bigelow, Eq., of Galva,
who is and-always has beea a radical re
publican, is attorney for tbe colonists.
In his brief and argun ent in the case
(after first stating that G.-st, the special
master, disregarded the decree of the
ouri, referred to in abstract 60) Mr.
"He (Gest) made anotht r report find
ing that about 133 different persons, or
their estates, then owned about all the
farming lands that the Bi mop Hiil col
ony ever owned, and, will out any notice
to these owners, he as gsed against a
portion rf these lands about $70,000
which" was made up almost entirely of
attorney' fees on both siU8 for prosecu
tiug and defending the hi it, compensa
tion to complainants and iefendants for
carrying on the suit, and the sum of S5.
UO0 a.lowed to the master (Gesl) for his
services. over and above tie sum which he
had previously received. And the
sum of 16 tKH which the master denom
inated a "contingent fund." Dea
anybody believe thnt the court would of
its own motion (without ntrigue on the
part of the master) have allowed tbe
sp-cial Master $3,000 besides about
uhi which be had already received?
Where is the law under a hich such fees
could be legally taxed? What equity or
justice was there in additg $16,000 as a
contingent fund," as Gest calls it. to be
raised in this way, when ;he master says,
in his report, it was to be paid back again
to the persons from whom it was expects
ed to be taken? '
After Gest's last report and the last de
cree based thereon, Mr. Bigelow says:
Right here, as tbe decree clearly
shows, is where the complainants and de
fendacts 'pooled their issues' and organ
ized a scheme of at temped robbery that
has scarcely a parallel ia the annals of
jurisprudence. This is ntrong language.
1 know, but it is more t-ian warranted bv
the real facts. Here a ere hundreds of
people, including wuows and minor
children, as tbe record shows, for whose
benefit a litigation was nrofessedtr begun
and earned on. not only betrayed, but
their little homes which they bad paid
for twice over, seized a id sold nnder the
guise of judicial proceedings to which
they were not personally parties, in or
der to raise money to j a; tbe betrayers.
Happily tbe scheme hai not beea crown
ed with success vet, hut. will be if the de
cree in this case is aflirmed."
It might be well to s ate bere that the
lands were sold at auct on under ibe last
decree, but the principal bidders were tbe
attorneys for tbe fees, they not desiring
to put any cash inu at y of the purchases
they made. wm. II. (Jtst. in order to
mike a raise to apply on bis share of the
purchase executed tbe mortgage describ
ed in the following pr ceedings and de
cree in the imted sta'es district court.
In order to set aside this mortgage tbe
poor coionisis were oiiiige j lo bring a
suit in the toiled Males court. The
record of the court says:
"First appears tbe bill of complaint and
cross bill of Swedish members of the col
ony selling lonn mat a mortgage exes
cuted and signed by William H. Gest as
special master in chancery of tbe Bishop
Mill colony cac, loL.leo a Uieland cov
ering tbe lands and homes of the com
plainants, was made without authority of
law, without con si Jeration, and was
fraudulent and void, and that tbe com
plainants were in nowise indebted to
Wm. H. Gest or Ellen B. Cleland."
The record then gi es on to state that
Wm. II. Gest failed to appear to defend
bis action, and afr legal forms are
noted, the decree comes, as follows:
"It is therefore on.ered. adjudged and
decreed by the cours :, that the mortgage
in said bill and cross hill described, dated
May 1. 1873. signed by Wm. II. Gest as
a special master in c bancery of the cir
cuit court of Henry ixiunty in tbe case of
Eric N. 2sorterg, et !.. vs. Bishop Hill
colony, et al, made l o secure an indebted
ness of three thousand ($3,000) dollars to
Eilen B. Cleland, an i recorded in the re
corder's office of He ary county, Illinois.
on the 10th day of Mav. 1873, in book
104. pane 58 of tbe Henry county re
cords be set aside, cancelled, annulled.
and as naught held both in law and
equity, so far as the same may relate or
pertain to the following described lands
and real estate all s tunted in tbe county
ot tienry, stale oi Illinois, t. wit."
Then follows tbe technical description
fif tbe land. Thus it will be seen that
although tbe peophr of tbe colony suc
ceeded in ridding Uemselve. of the fraud
ulent mortgage, tlx y were put to the ex
pense and annoya ice of bringing and
conducting a suit ri the U. S. courts. It
seems apparent tbtt this mortgage was
executed by W. 11. Uest for the sole pur
pose of extorting o.oney from these peo
ple under tbe belief that tbey would sub
mit rather than tai e any more chance, in
In this same caw an opinion was filed
ly Judge Mulkey. at Ottawa, May 12,
1887. who among tither remarks, .aid:

Tbe new London Clothing Company
inaugurated its formal advent into the
mercantile pursuits of Rock Island in
an elaborate, costly and altogether novel
manner last evening, evincing a spirit of
libera enterprise tbst enluted tbe co
operation and good, will of our represent
ative business men and citizens gen
erally. Starting from Spencer square at
7 o'clock there passed through tbe princi
pal streets of Rock Island and then took
up its way to Moline where it surprised
and delighted the natives, a pageant
which in elegance, originality and pro
portions called forth the admiration and
praise of the thousands who witnessed it
snd at once became friends of the men
who had designed it. Tbe column was
headed by a detail of mounted police
provided by Chief Miller. Then came a
chariot containing Blenet's bsnd; then
Messrs. Leveen snd Joseph in a buggy.
and following them came four floats at
tractively decorated and prettily illumin
ated and bearing such inscriptions as
these among others: "With Pleasure we
Greet you;" "We Come to Stay ;" "We
will Bring Prices Down and Keep them
Down," etc. Then followed a number of
mounted knights in brilliant costume
aud a number in red.wbite and Mue tuita;
then twenty carriages in which rode rep
resentative business men and prominent
citizens, and last two hundred mou&ted
horsemen in fours. Scattered through
tbe procession were gorgeous banners of
patriotic colors, while ever anil anon
the way was illuminated by beautiful py
roteebnic displtys, the London company
having laid ia a stock of choice fireworks,
bich. however, would have been even
more brilliant were it not that tbe great
demand in Chicago for campaign our
poses, prevented the filling of the entire
order. As it was, however, merchants
along the line of march did honor to the
new comers by handsome displays. It
was a triumphant march, and Caessr
never entered Rome more grandly than
did the London Clothing company enter
Rock Island last night.
Today witnessed the formal inaugura
tion of the London's store here. Multi
tudes of people thronged the entrance to
it long before tbe the time for the
doors o open at 10 oi lor k. After that
hour tbe commodious and magnificent
new store on Second avenue was crowded
all day, each visitor receiving a beaulilul
souvenir as a remembrance of the occa,
All were at once impressed with tbe
system employed in the store. The goods
are a 1 nicily displayed on polished oak
tables, and all plainly marked. Tbe
store fixtures, all of which were made in
Rock Island, are new, as is the stock
throughout. Tbe clerks are numbered
and each appeared in his best suit of
clothes, while Me-sri. Leveen and Joseph
were in full ilrea. The H ire was beau
tifully decorated with Japanese ornaments
and flowets. and chief among the floral
ornaments were some beautiful designs
from friends of Messrs. Leveen and Jo
seph nut of town. Bleuer's band, sta
tioned in tbe gallery, furnished music al
intervals. Among the conveniences in
the arrangement of Ibe store ia a mrdern
cash system with double lines which
must be of great advantage to
tbe company in expediting the
immense business that is sure to
come to it. Tbe windows viewed
from the outside are models of beauty
snd richness. In one is arranged hats.
neckwear, etc., umbrellas sod canes on
revolving platforms, a lining of mirrors
adding brightness to the kaleidoscopic
view. In tbe other are tastefully ar-.
ranged wax and Sther figures displaying
suitings, etc, to advantage. There are
no more elegant store windows in Illinois
outside of Chicags or in this entire sec
lion of tbe country.
