Someone wriiiug to the Unitm signing
himself "Fir Play," endeavors to con
done or in tome way palliate the action or
lack of action of Mr, 3et with reference
to toe Tiaduct. If tons of ink were
bed upon this qieation it would not
alter the fcl that when Gest wag induced
todo snroettiine in the matter he did o
with an eje always upon Captain Rob
inaon ready M any moment to conform
to his wishes, whether those wishes were
io the interests of the people or not. In
fact, as Captain Robinson said at the
Henderson meeting the other night, Mr.
Oest was ready at all times to run anil do
his bidding, and he appealed to his bear
ers if that was not so. - Fair Play says
that K Gct bail wished to kill tbe
bill it was only neces-ury for him to fold
his arms and do nothing. That is not
true, and tbe man who assumes such an
equitable name should not purposely
mislead anyone, ctn the simp
lest. Tbe viaduct bill could have
t been passed witbout Mr. Oest.
It would huve l-.'n mui-h easier
to accomplish if mime other mem
ber In the first plnce bl been applied to,
but It was natural to suppose Hint our
member would be the one who would
take the deepen interest in our home af
fairs. As it was, Congressman Uear, of
Iowa.bad to be appealed to. If that had
not been done, or some other member
equally gracious seen in the premises, no
useful step would as jet have been taken
and Oest would still be acting under the
beck and call of Captain Robinson his
guide, philosopher and friend
It did not take a preeminent
ly astute man to learn that Gest was a
stumbling r ! k all the way through, and
was much more an injury than a help
from first to last
The bills in congress relating to the
matter have been published in tbe Ar
oca. The principal objection
to the previous legislation was
that a release for damages could
not be ohtained from abutting
property Jowners. The bill introduced
by Gest bad for its object only tbe re
pealing of that portion of the law which
related to tbe pwymeut of half tbe appro
priation 35.(MHJ 0to the treasury of
the United Sratis by the citv of Rock

nameiy, m&i portion relating to the nc
ceisuy or obtaining the release for
damages of the abutling property own

lay. Gest was under the control and in

II. C. Connelly and John Luermann
as ine ammin; property o ner of tbe
west side of the proposed viaduct, tbe
Lase es'ate occupying all the eas'era
side. It was impossible to get these men
to sign such a release and, as a conse
quence, tbe bill was worthless. That
Gest knew, so did Robinson. It will be
lunucr vu uow irriiaoie and uncons
genial was Mr. Gest when approached on
ia - . i : . ' .
uo uujrui, anu now unaesirous he was
of doing anything further in the matter.
IT II . .
jc icueii io screen mmseir behind the
theory that he had alrealy introduced a
bill and that he could do no more. He
wished to make sure that bis friend Cap
tain Robinson had all that he wanted
w ue peoile. they were not in his
thoughts. It will be 3een how the bill
was prepared for the senate, having the
objectionable clause nUting to tbe re
lease of tbe propei ty owners stricken out.
ana now Uest even then had to be dealt
with in order that he should take some
action in tbe matter. From the begin
ning, too, it will be seen bow backward
was Gest in all thesj transactions. At
every step tbe way had to be prepared
for him. He was unwilling to be led and
had to be driven. The people can thus
tee how niurn they owe to Mr. Gest.
INTKKYlEW W ITU HASS.
With reference t this and tLe
bridge matur Mr. Fred nsj was
seen by an Ahocs man. an I he
aid that be does not want to wrong Mr.
Mr. Gest; that he did vole for him at tbe
last two elections, and did considerable
work for him at his last election, but he
ays that when he arrived at Washington
last February he found to his great sur
prise that Mr. Gest had done nothing to
wards permanently opening the bridge
between Rock Island and Davenport to
.H traffic as be had previously promised
to do. On tbe contrary, he found he I
bad only asked for a temporary order for
the use of the bridge to all tralllc for and
during the time tbe ice was running
nnen in Washington Liter Mr. Cass
found that Mr. Gest bail been at the war
department upon the request of Captain
T LI i
iwiiiuson. anu (jut the promise there
that be (Oest) should be heard before any
cuange should be made in throwing the
onage open to the public. Whereupon
Mr. Hass was compelled to call upon
omeotner representative to assist him,
and that he therefore called upon his
friend. Congressman Gear, of Iowa.
When in Washington last February, Mr.
Hass reiterates that he soon discovered
that Mr. Gest bad done nothing towards
opening the bridge between this city and
Davenport, and that he did not seem to
care to a-sist in that direction. Mr.
Hass, therefore, called upon his friend,
. Congressman f T . .
. . ivwa, who went
with him before the secretary of war.and
In conversation tbe secretary of war ex
pressed himstlf that there was no law
requiring tbe bridge to tie closed in the
summer and open in the winter. The
secretary of war further expressed bim
elf that he saw no objections why tbe
present temporary order for th
of tbe bridge should not be made per
manent fo all truffle and trade. Liter on
-he same day Mr. Ilasg fulled on Mr Gest
at the cspitol." and "asked him why .
"lie'baa hot Bated" for the permanent ordeT
for the epeoiug of tho bridge to all traffic
between this city and Davenport, Instead
ot a temporary one. whereupon Mr. Oeat
answered that - no' permanent nnler to-
the opening of tbe .bridge could be had
f ia 06 naa'4
js Hos-ld to, impossible, Ts,tbe;sovi,rn
' ment would never coen the hri.i. r .n
traffic; that The opening of the bridge to
all tiafflc had been tried orten enough,
and that there was no use trying in that
direction aay further. Mr. Has, there
upon, informed Mr. Oest of the interview
he had with the secretary of war and of
pressman Gear of Iowa. - Whereupon
Mr. Geat made no comment, bet walked
Off. " ; '
On a later day Mr. Oest was asked by
Mr. Has what he had done about the ob
jectionable clause in the viaduct bili.
whereupon Mr. Oest said that he had ins
troduced a bill, such a was necessary,
but he did not give any particulars as to
the bill he had introduced. Mr. Hass
then looked np tbe bill, and found it was
to repeal the part where it said that the
city of Rock Island was to pay (or one
half for the building of the viaduct, but
also found that Mr. G3St had reinserted
in said bill, as a clause, to hare all the
abutting property released before the bill
could go into force. Thereupon Mr.
Hass called upon Senator Cullom. who
then clled in Senator Allison. These
two lat er gentlemen then blocked jjjxl a
bill, which was drawn np, with three
copies written in type. Senator Cullom
introduced one copy into the senate, and
Mr. Hass handed one copy to Mr. Oest.
whereupon Mr. Oest said that such a bill
would never pass; that the government
would never build a viaduct until all
abutting property was released. Mr.
Hass argued the matter with Mr. Gest at
considerable length, and said that if tbe
property had to be released before it was
damaged that the property holders would
not know what to charge, and if a price
would be made it would be as large, like
ly, as the cost of tbe viaduct would be,
snd no viaduct would ever be built under
Mr. Gest then said: Can you people
not release or buy the property abutting
the viaduct? Whereupon Mr. Hass an
swered: No, we cannot obtain a release,
nor do I believe that we can buy the
property at any reasonable price whatso
ever. Mr. Gest then said he would in
troduce the Cullom bill, bat he said he
knew that it would not pass.
Mr. Hass brought the third copy of tbe
type written bill home, and reported acs
cording to his promise leceived from
Qest and Cullom, that tho proper repeal
oil', for tbe objectionable clause had
been introduced oy Senator Cullom in
the senate and ty Mr. Gest in tbe house.
Mr. Hiss then had a large number of
copies printed from tbe one be brought
home. He gave a number of them to
tbe members of lie Citizens" Improve
ment Association who sent them to their
friend in the house and s.nate. in a
manner as be had done, and asked them
to be supported, as ve all supposed that
this bill had been introduced io tbe house
ss well as in the senate. Mr. Hass then
received advice from a friend in Wash
ington that Mr. Gest had introduced do
such bill in tbe house, and leceived an
other copy of the objectionable bill that
Mr. Gest bad introduced in January last,
requiring abutting pro pel ty holders to
release before the law could go into ef
fect. Six wetks bad tben elapsed since this
bill was to have been introduced by Mr.
Gest. On March 29ih Mr. Hass called
upon Mr John J. Reimers. relative to his
position iu the foregoing circumstances.
Mr. Reimers on that date wrote Mr.
Gest a letter, from which we quote tho
"As a representative citizen and friend
of yours, would say that a meeting was
held by tbe representative citizens of
Rock Island to discoss your bill intro
duced January 6th, for a viaduct. If the
bill passed as it reads it would be simply
impossible to build the same, as you well
know that your friend. Captain Robin
son, owns about 200 feet, and the Case
estate the whole length on tbe east side,
and they would ask more damage than
tbe construction of tbe viaduct would
con, and you well know that the con
struction would be more benefit than
real damage. .
"We have examined the bill suggested by
Senator Allison, and introduced by Sena
tor Cullom, and find it to be tbe very bill
we desire, and would, therefore, ask you
either to introduce or substitute the said
bill for your bouse bill when before the
committee. And. as a f iend. I would
urge you to do your very best to see tbat
tbe said bill is favorably reported, and
have tbe same attached to tbe sundry
civil appropriation bill."
Thereupon on April 1st. Mr. Gest in
troduced the Cuilom bill, which sets forth
that the city shall pay no part of tbe ex
pense of building tbe said viaduct, and
that the abutting property shall nt be
be released upon the building of tbe via'
duct, but that a bond shall be given to
protect the United States government
against all damages that may accrue to
the abuttiLg property holders upon the
erection of said viaduct. This is the bill
that has became a law, and by wbich tbe
viaduct will be built.
Mr. Cable, upon being informed as to
this law was the first gentleman that of
fered to, and did sign, tbe bond, protect
ing the United States government against
abutting property holders upon tbe erec
tion of tbe viaduct. Mr. Weyerbauser is
the other gentleman who signed tbe
bond with Mr. Cable, which bond is now
executed and ready to be turned over to
the Uoited States government.
Does this not clearly show tbat Mr.
Gest opposed both tbe opening of tbe
bridge and the viaduct. He was afraid
to move without getting the sanction of
Captain Robinson as both their interests
were identical. Tbe building of
the viaduct means the building of
a union depot, which Mr. Cable is as
heartily in favor of as he is of the con
struction of the viaduct- To Mr. Reimers
also much is due for his persistent efforts
in actually compelling Oest to move io
