"Iditor of th Akops:
Cabihaob. HI.. Oct. 27. Notij
log a communication from a re
publican rf Macomb io jour paper re
Krd!nK Mr. Gcat and liia doinifa m the
Eleventh district. I would like to aay
ame n and Rive that republican a beartj
abake. Mr- Oest baa not otly nomina
tad a man bere wbo waa not toe cbolce
of tbe people but the on of the richest
man in Uancock county. The fight here
waa bit. 8. W. Merrill, an old soldier,
traa a candidate, lfys ability and knowN
edge of business were beyond all ques
tion. Be went to the front, Need the
e nemy, waa wounded on tbe battlefield
of tbe aonth and came borne after tbe
war ended with bonor aa a soldier and
comrade. - He baa lived in our city for
years and is known for his integrity and
honesty. He has waiteJ for years and
bas never asked bis party for office until
1899. and wit laid aside by Mr. Gest to
put into office a youug roan 2S years of
age, because his ptrents were rich and
money could get the office. Mr. Merrill
was backed by this whole community.
He bas the choice of Ihe people, but Mr.
Qeat said: "The people have nothing to
do with this matter. I am congressman.
I have tbe people to put mo into office. I
choose my man, regardless of the fact
that Mr. Meirill was an old soldier, the
choice of tbe people and by tbe civil ser
vice law tbe choice of the republican par
ty." Mr- Ural hag realized the fact that
bis fences are badly down about bere. He
rame bere Oct. lS.b, and with Col. B.
P. Marsh, made a speech. In appearance
Mr. O.'st is not overly influential look
ing. In his speech lie showed the party
what kind of a man of ability we have
for Congressman. Mmv a disgustful cry
waa made, and Mr. ijst would bave
made voles to never bnve showed him
self in our city, let alone trying speech
making. His adhere nis are taking great
pains to tell their friends that be is no
speaker, well knowing ihe harm it baa
done. We want to ask the republican
or anyone else, what bas Mr. Gest ever
done that be should ask his re-election T
What record bas be made in the four
years that he bas been there? What
speech has be ever made that (toes in
the congressional record? What is bis
every day record that be should ask his
re-election? He has not proved to the
voters of his parly that be is or baa ever
done the choice of the people. He has
distributed the patronage of his district
to the wealthiest and to the politician
He has, in every instance, disregarded
tbe voice and aen'iment of the people
wno elected mm. ow be tins the cheek
and audacity to ask tbe republicans to
elect bim again. There are numbers of
republicans bere in our city who are true
am tried In fie uours of ba'lle and aid
who will give Ben Cable their aid, votes
and assistance. We can Dime
every town and city in Hancock county
woere uesi nas aone as be bas done liere
and republicans will remember bim Nov.
4tb. He was nominated by a packed
convention and a fixed slate. Oood true
blue republicans saw tbe usehssness of a
tight in the convention and lay low, say
ing that there was a place to do their
will and apeak their sentiments, and that
waa at the ballot bnx. Tbe name of Mr.
Cable ia beyond reproach. The raputa
lion of Mr. Cable is spntltgj, and not
even nis political enemies can say aught
against him. Ben Caob to republicans
ber is not a bitter pill," but a man who
will represnut them in congress far better
man uest ever tlul or ever will do. We
always bave been a republican and never
before scratched a ticket a true blue
republican and we defy any denial of
tbe same. We bave no party lasb around
our neck; we a k no office; we are for
principle, for honor and for a good con
gressman. Gest bas neither of these
and has not the ability of a common
omcer, let alone a congressman. Ben
Cable ia tbe man for us and every repub
lican who wants ibis district fully rcpre.
sented in congress. We here are strong,
louuential and mmy, and we will be
h3ard from early in the morning of Nov
4th. and will be for principle and honor
until the laat hour and tbe last minute of
the day. Ben Cable is our man now and
.Nov. 4th. and will be our next congress
man. A Republican.
The Tratn. of Ihe Matter.
1 bere are a few narrow-minded people
woo seem surprised that the Journal
snould take its present attitude on the
congressional question. Chargrg bave
even been made that the proprietor of
tuis paper I", and always bus been.
democrat. Nothing could be more un
true. Tbe proprietor of this paper has
always been a republican. He will offer
good reward to anyone who will sho
tbal be has ever voted the democratic
ticket. His republicanism has always
oeen unquestioned. Moreover, be is a
good republican today. But can one not be
a good republican without endorsing all
tne acts of the republican party?
mc repuoncan congress bas, by iu in
famous stand on tbe tariff question, made
iiseu onensive to a large mass of repub
lican voters, and to this class the pro
prietor ti tins papir belongs. The Mc
Kinley bill is an outrage upon tbe Amer
ican people, and for tils reason we on
pose it. This is why the Journal advo-
catea the election of Ben T. Cable. Tbe
democratic candidate for congress occu
pies tbe proper stand on tbe tariff ones
tion and as a natural consequence he bas
tbe support of this paper. W. II. Qeat

therefore obliged to do our part, however
nine mat may oe, to defeat him for re
This paper does not stand alone among
the republican papers wbo are making a
cruaaae against the McKinley bill. Tbe
Cedar Itapids Gazette is as good a repub
lican paper as may oe round In Iowa, and
yet it Is bitter In iu denunciation of the
McKinley bill. The Dubuoue Leiluer is
red hot republican paper, but this does
not prevent It from laboring in behalf of
juage uoucb, tbe democratic candidate
for congress, or against Hunderson, who
voted for the McKinley bill. The daily
Journal occupies a similar position. This
fact accounts for our support of Ben T.
Cable and explains why the proprietor of
the Journal will vote for that gentleman.

Coaeeralas: Maw T. Cable-Why
They Will Mapport Hlaa. .
The Chicago Bemlandtl of Oct. 23
contained tbe following, which speaks
for itself: ,
We. tbe undersigned, as well as a large
number of others bave been waiting for
a correct and honest statement regarding
Mr. B. T. Cable, candidate for congress
la the Eleventh district. We wish to say
that it is not for the sake of thanking
him or honoring bim. We are not
party slaves, but we vote for the one we
lielieve to be beat fitted for the position.
What we wish to do do is to correct a
few untruthful and misleading state
ments about bim that were published in
tbe Ilemlandet ot the 11th inn. Tour
correspondent, Mr. "A. B.," says that
Mr. B. T. Cable stands at the head of the
Rock Island Railroad. Thia is untrue.
Mr. R. R. Cable, bis cousin. Is president
of the road in question. Further "A. B.M
says the statement that Ben Cable and
hta sister Lucy furnished the
costly furniture for Cable Hall ia
tbe Swedish college in Rock Island
must be a mistake. It i. perfectly
true. It is well known that P. L. Ca
ble, tbe deceased father of B. T. Cable,
once gave fl.GiiO, and at another time
$25,000 for our college, but Ben Cable
gave not only one-half the sum for the
furniture for Cable hall, (bis sister Lucy,
giving the remainder.) but he has at dif
ferent times shown his liberality and
kindness toward our college. We. there
fore, consider hira well worthy of our
We must acknowledge that none ex
cept our own Swedish people bave shown
such an interest and kindness as P. L.
Cable and family have done. Let us,
without boasting, limit ourselves to the
T. X. Hasselqcist.
C O. Ol.ANDEB.
The statement of facts to which the
venerable president of Augustana college
and Mr. Oiander append their signatures,
is well worthy the attention it will re
ceive, not only by the friends of Augus
tana college and of these gentlemen ev
erywhere, but by all who desire to know
'.he truth, and to see deliberate and re
peated misrepresentation confronted by
f atlr far l onirrmi.
The weightiest work Gest did was to
tear pieces of paper iato bits in bis seat
and vote promptly at the dictates of bis
eastern masters. He did absolutely noth
ing in the interest of those who seni hira
to Washington. While tbe mill boss
minions were robbing the people of his
district he failed to raise his voice in
tbeir behalf. He voted every time to help
them to do it. He is asking the citizens
of the Eleventh Illinois district to send
him back to conercs. What earthly
reason could they find for doing so? No
man who voted for that fearful an 1 won
derful humbug the McKinley bill
should ever again be placed in a pos.lion
to intlict injury upon tbe American
people. Gesl has for bis opponent Ben
T. Cable, a man who has the confidence
and respect of all who bave read bis
manly utterances upon tbe foremost
topics of the hour. Cat le will defend
tbe interests of the people, not only of
bis own district, but of tbe west in genv
eral. The duty which devolves upon the
voter next week is a very solemn one.
The liberty of tbe citizen is involved in
tbe result of ihe election. It is of vital
importance that a congress will i e elected
which will throttle tbe Lodge force bill
and prevent the tariff robbers from In
fi cting more onerous burdens upon the
people in tbeir reckless, greedy rioting.
You will be certain to do right ii voting
for Ben CalK tbe people's friend. Vote
for bim yourself, and persuade a friend
to do the same. Tbe west bas been hurt
worse than any other local ity by the Mc
Kinley peopla. It is time for the west to
look out for her welfare. Cable will
earnestly assist in the wori.- Keokuk
The "t alon " Kern rl ta Prayer.
The situation is indeei becoming most
desperate in tbe eyes of the republican
party. Tbe Union of this morninz in de
voting a column and a half to deploring
the outlook, puffins its candidates, and
alluding to past and present disaffections
in the ranks of republican voters, rrmkes
this prayerful confession: "We prav
them to know uow that our candidates
need their votes, and will be as grateful
for them as their opponents can be. The
time to realize that there are and can be
no self-reproaches attended to voting the
full republican tick;t whatever the result
is nffw."' Ye gods! what roust be the de
plorahle aspect of tbe outlook as viewed
by the republican party when it commits
its case to the Viuon for prayer! It can
not be more poignant than the realiza
tion set forth by the Union in the lan
guage of its response to that supplica
ireal Promises far Wat.
The "Secret Circle" has sent out an
other great argument for their woe-be-
gone candidate, and it is about as amus
ing as some of tbe other statements etr.a
natiug from that mysterious few are
vicious and untruthful. It is to the ef
fect that Gest has arranged for a special
session of tbe late coogTess afier election
in which be will get tbe back-pay bill
passed so tbe men can bave their money
by Christmas. The natural query will
be why did not Gest get the bill through
at tbe regular session so the men could
bave their money now? If Gest has so
much influence as tbe "Secret Circle" is
representing him to have, the island
workmen are not likely to thank bim for
withholding it for political purposes.
And thus is another scheme of the
"Secret Circle" exploded.
A fable for Faraaera.
A sheep was once trying to graze when
snow lay thick on the meadow and the
northeast wind was blowing. Along
came an infant induatry, wbo said:
"Poor naked abeepl bow cruel are tney
that send thee forth unclad in this bitter
cold! Behold, I will protect thee."
And the "infant industry" took out his
shears and sheared tbe sheep: and of tbe
wool be made a coat; and be put it on
bis own back, and stood n proudly
agsinst tbe blast.
And tbe sheep shivering in bis shorn

But tbe infant industry looked witb
scorn at the aheep, and said, "fool! dost

Only a short time ago Congressman
Dorsey, of Nebraska, sent word to the
chairman of the republican national
committee that be was in a peck of
trouble at home on account of the new
tariff and unless the chairman should
telegraph a lie tbat the McKinley bill
would not advance prices tlrat thousauds
of votes would be lost to the prrty in
that state. Toe communication was a
secret one, of course, but it leaked out,
and adds another proof of the means re
sorted to to cover up tbe facts until after
election. It is a desperate game to keep
the people from knowing the truth until
after Nov. 4. It is not expected tbat the
public can be kept in ignorance always,
but if the facts can be smothered in some
way until tbat time it is hoped the high
taxers may pull through. If any portion
of tbe people by ibc.r votes contributi to
tba election of any one maa t wbo is in
favor of robbing tbe people by a disgrace
ful tariff, tbey will have themst Ives only
to blame aa the , sorrowf jlly think over
the matter afterwards when it is too late.
Recently the A mil's called upon sever
al of the leading dealers in different
kinds of trade in this city to get facts

it clearly shows that every dollar of ad

everything almost will be dearer, much
