Presented la the shortest space here
re some of Mr. Gest's ways of dealing
with the pw.jjle. TntJ include but a few
of bis objectionable deeds, t ut they are
enough to show bis unreliability, his in
sincerity, and hi. unfaithfulness to the
trut which were imposed in him, not
only in Washington, but here at hom in
the ordinary affairs of life.
He opposed the opening of the bridge
between this city and Moline. and Dv
enporl, and would thus deprive the peo
p!e of its use. He could see the poor
pajitig till when they could ill afford it,
in order that a friend of bis who owned
a ferry, might reap a benefit. It was
only after overcoming bis opposition that
the bridge was opened in spite of all he
He daily saw the people in danger
from the crossing of numerous railway
tracks in approaching the bridge and he
htard their chmore for a viaduct. Did
he help them out? Not he. His friend
the same one who owns the ferry was
opposed to the viaduct and all be bad to
do was to instruct bis mm, Sir. Gest, to
do what he could against it in Washing
ton. It was accomplished, however,
against bis opposition, and the people
will receive the benefit tbey sought in
spite of his efforts to injure them.
By bis bungling and inefficient mann r
he has deprived this city of an appropri
ation for a public build ngtaag well as
depriving them of ninny other advant
He promised the woikingmen a back
pay law by which they could be paid the
overtime tbey hud labored. Did he do
hi Not he. He bungled, tnd blundered,
and sit st. 11 in the bouse while others
were defeaticg the measure for the bene'
fit of the men. He never even raised bis
voice once in opposition when he saw
the pay of the workingmen stolen from
them before bis eyes. And for this be
does not even offer an excuse. Tbese
workingmen sbouli remind Mr Oest in a
forcible way that they want no more of
his deceit or hypocricy.
In the various labor bills in the bouse
he made no tfforl to have tbem become
law, and still tbey lie in Washington un
attended to and will le there for some
time to come unless tbey receive roper
attention. The talk about tbem to his
friends was done for political effect when
Mr. Gist had no intention of doing any
thing further. bat can the people,
what can the laboring classes especially.

Ills actions in congress or rather hia
lack of action Is certainly enough to
condemn him and it will, but even when

Reynolds, Oct. 1!9 I see in the TTnioa
of the 25th a communication with date of
Reynolds, in which I am accused of mis
cons'ruing fact! with reference to the
way the dastardly -secret circulars" of
the Gest crimwle wi ro circulated in Hey
nold.. The author of the production
would command more respect if
he would sign bis name outright, but he
imply appends Hermes." He is evi
dently too much of a coward to stand by
his deeds frankly and openly, and in the
attack which he makes upon me, be
screens himself by the single word
Hermes." I simply want to say that
the circulars were circulated in the most
underhanded and contemptible manner
ronceivab e and there was nothing, no
more open about the wav it was done
than there 1 about the Union; corre
spondent. The circulars were sneakincl
distributed out at a supper as I said be
fore, and I canprove this by the fam
ily cf the nun who did it.

HIS CROOKED CAREER.
How Campbell Fonht for an Un
Ana1 After the Vmmty Bear Repaal-
ated His Ceadaet Hew He played
Miserable Trtek a rellsw Super
vlaar Wk had Trtaasphed Over
As a member ot the county board in
which be represented the township of
South Rock Island for teveral years, hav
ing In fact not become impressed with
the Idea of denouncing all allegiance to
his mother land, Great Britain, until he
saw a chance to get a public office, Tom
Campbell, the present republican candi
date for county treasurer, showed how
far le was inclined to guarding the pub
lic interests when weighed in the scale
with bis individual and personal prefer
ences. At several sessions of the county
board prior to the meeting cf Dec. 1883,
Mr. J.D. Warnock aa supervisor from
Rural township, but since deceased, bad
led a Will founded opposition to
Asa But man as steward at the
poor farm. Mr. Warnock alleged
unfaithfulness on the part of Botanao to
bis duties, but Campbell being a friend of
Butman, strenuously fought for him and
baviog the chairman of th: board, Heath
of MiUn. on his side, be for a time
thwarted all efforts on Mr. Warnock'a
part to have an investigation made. Mr
Warnock finally brongbt evidence before
the board that Butmau's team had been
repeatedly seen in front of a Coal Valley
saioon wrjen ibe steward ought to be at
the poor farm, and Mr. Warnock sue
cecded, despite Campbt It's moat vigorous
opposition, in having a committee ap
pointed to investigate the aCairs of the
pitor farm. Campbell.howeyer.foughtthe
Investigation step by step. He abused
Warnock shamefully and supported But
man in every claim that he made in his
defence. The committee composed of
Supervisors J. D. Warnock. J.S.Robin
son and Henry Vierich, reported to the
December term. 1883. that the books of
the poor farm had been examined and
that the books were not properly indexed
ana in several cases accounts were not
footed, that the committee wai dmatis
fled with the way in which the steward
disposed of his farm products, and that
several persons bad been supported at tbe
farm as paupers while receiving wages
for labor performed on the poor farm.
In tbe meantime Campbell and Heath
who were bound that Bu'rnan should be
elected whether or no, and finding that
the records had verified Mr. Warnock'a
assertions, and proved the steward unfit
for his office, entered upon a systematic
scheme to belittle their fellow member in
the eyes of the board, but they could not
succeed, and at tbe March term next
James Robertson was elected steward at
tbe poor farm by a vote of fifteen to
eight for Butman. This action on tbe
part of the board was at once very com
plimentary to Mr. Warnock as sustaining
nis accusation, and was a rebuke to
Campbell who had steadfastly defended
Butman. Campbell was indignant at the
result, and at once commenced on tbe
quiet to abuse Warnrck. Tbe night fol
lowing the detest of Butman, Campbell
and Heath got into a discussion with
Warnock on the surject, and they pur-
suaded bim to go to a Market square Sa
loon with them, and though M.r. War
nock was not a drinking man, he took
oue drink. Soon after he began to cx
peril-ore peculiar sensations, and at once
retired. He bad never been intoxicated
in his life, and he knew that cne driuk
and that a non-intoxicant, would not af
reci mm. unmpueii and Heath were
tickled, however, and know:cg of Mr.
Warnock'a well-known sobriety, peddled
the report al over town that Mr. War
nock was drunk in town. Tbe report
reached tbe country, and Mr. Warnork's
triends became indignant. Tbey knew
tbe stories were maliciously false, and
Campbell seeing that they were discred
ited, told a number of people that War
nock was "oot full at all that night," but
that be "put a fly in the drink, to make
bim feel that way, anyway."
But th-s is not the only evidence of
shameful extent io which Campbell car
ried his friendliness to Butmtn and bis
enmity to Supervisor Warnock. Pre
vious to the removal of Butman there
was a survey to be made of the pipes at
the poor farm for future reference. Mr.
Warnock advocated tbe letting of tbe con
tract to a practical plumber in Rock Isl
and, and favored giving it to At. Yerbury
who bad the lowest bid. Campbell, how
ever, fayored giving tbe job to Butman,
and persuaded the board to his way of
thinking, this being before tbe investiga
tion, and Butman was assigned the work
for f 50, whereas Mr. Yerbury would have
been glad to have taken the contract for
much less than that figure. This is pret
ty good proof of what Campbell's par
tiality to an incompetent official cost the
people of Rock Inland county.

interest to the voters of the Eleventh dis

P. & W. ra.lroad. Mr. Gest was flrst
nominated in this place four years ugo,
and again in JffYy last, but not with con
fidence of victory and unity of the p:trty
as four years ago. July last the nom
ination of Mr. Oest was made by p ist
m asters he put into office not by 01 ber
republicans. There was an unusu illy
large delegation who lobbied aga nU
him, but to-no avail. Mr. Gest knew
that he was cot the entice of his pa -ty.
He knew bis candidacy was a blow to his
party, but be was confident that a nom
ination was fully equal to an election. und
so ran it through on that issue. Repub
licans, iu your duty, regardless of party,
to lay aside any candidate wbo will push
his nomination aa Mr. Gest bat
once the pet of tbe party, now an out
cast. But we aimed to tell of Mr.
Gest's actions in this city, and ihe
manner in - which be trea ed
some of our best and most influent ml
citizens. There were several candidates
for the post office here and the flVht
wsxed hot. Several of the candidal
bad petitions with hundreds of signi rs
and among whom were men who hve
stood by their flag snd party. But when
the battle cleared away who got tbe nou
inarionT The man who bad the b st
backing of the people and wh- was
wanted by tbe public? No, emphatica ly
no. But a man Dr. Westfall got it;
a roan wbo had no petition; a man w no
was not thought of; but being a poli
tic an and having made a speech or two
Tor Mr. Geat he got tbe fllce. The will
of the public was unheeded The choi :e
of tho people buried snd stamped under
foot by Mr. Gest. Docs the Eleven h
district want any such men to reprefeal
it in congress? Can such a man have anv
influence in the house of represent tlives?
We say no. Can a man who will go bai k
on bis friends in such a manner as Gest
has done be trusted with so important id
ofllce? We believe a 1 good republicans
will agree with us io saying no to suco.
Mr. Gest has in every instance thwarted
the will and choice of the peo
ple. In no rase, can any
one cite an instance when Mr. Gest bt s
done the will of the public or the good tf
tbe parly. Republicans, rouse your
self to the sense of your duty. Ben
Cable is a man with a character without
atl-mish. Hia political enemies cannot
say aught against him. His sobriety an I
honesty have not been questioned and
cannot be. The republican leaders sav
you must vote for the principle of th-j
party. Wt II. we say you will vote for
principle when you scratch Gest and v ti'
for Mr. Cable. Gest has proved tbat he
has no principle; his actions have spoken
louder than bis words, nis appoint
ments have been against the party. Why
should you support him? This city giveh
usually 75 to 80 republican majority
But Ben Cable will take all that and car
ry the city.
Gest made a speech in our city some
thing over a week ago and his supporters
have been busily engaged since making
apologies for his utter ibabilitv to appear
in such a way. And he would have
made numbers of votes to have never
come here. It was a bitter pid for his
advocates and a rare treat for bit politi
cal enemies to see the manoeuvers and
positions he could get in
while speakicg. When the smoke
clears away November 4'b. Bushnell
will be heard from and McUonough
county will give 300 for Cable. Tbe par
ty lash here bas seen its dav. The peo
ple see that Mr. Gest is "not the man
wanted for representative of the Elev
enth district. He has been tried and
proved himself utterly incapable of till
ing the position. No republican should
stand back or shrink from bis duty. No
republican should fail to see the utter in
consistency (of supporting the candidacy
of such a man as Gest Fellow repub
licans, be not afraid to vote for Ben Ca
b'e. You can vote for tbe republican
state officers. We have a republican
senate, a republican president. Do not
let any party leader scare or influence you
that your yote will make everything
democratic. My republicanism has nev
er been doubted, my honor never ques
tioned. I have filled offices of honor for
our party. But I ask, as do two score
more of republicans, for principle, honor
and honesty, and Ben Cable bas all
these qualifications. Gest hss proved
himself possessed of none of ttese
Down with Gest and unprincipled ways.
We are for Cable early in the morn and
all time to come. Ren Cable is our roan
and next congressman. We stand ready
any time to prove oor republicanism and
ibe truth of this statement. Yours re
