HARD UP FOK A FLING.
The nornloK Paper's IneoBalsteney
In it KfTort t May Hornet : Ing; D
roxatory rconrreseman .Jable.
On the editorial pagj of this morning's
issue the Union enters into a long article
in which on the one hand it attacks the
democratic congress for ps83ing the river
and harbor bill, accusing it of being false
to its professions of economy in passing
the bill by the decisive vote of 186 to 65.
and then it turns around and commends
the party for appropriating the proper
amounts for the maintenance of rivers
But on another page it gives endorse
ment to an article from Moline Dis
patch which credits Congressman Hen
derson with securing the half million for
Hennepin canal work. Let the
republican organs keep within the
bounds of consistency at all events.
When the republican congress appropri
ated a half million to start the canal.it
was all Gest that did it, and the idea of
crediting Gen. Henderson with any part
of it was indigraitlr resented, but now
that a democratic congress has appropri
ated a like amount to carry forward work
that the former republican congressman
had kept at a standstill, and prevented
thereby the expenditure of any portion
of the original appropriation by
favoring a course that would put an
exorbitant part of it into the pockets of
his friend Robinson, the republican
papers shout give the credit all to Hen
derson. That a republican congressman
of the years of service in the bouse of
Congressman Henderson, a man with a
record that The Aroos has no hesitancy
in saying is in the highest sense cred
itable, should fiil to get from his own
party in power, tte first half million,
whereas a mere pigmy should s'.rut in and
secure the amount which Henderson had
failed after years of work to obtain, and
then that the same Henderson should go
into a democratic congress and secure a
half trillion more, is an assertion burden
ed so heavily with inconsistency that it
is out of tbe line of ridiculousness
generally undertaken in campaign falsity.
The river bill does not include the appros
priations we would all like, the provision
for the examination of tbe harbor at Mo
line being with the additional appropria
tion for the canal, the only special
provisions we have received,, the ne
cessitated policy of retrenchment on the
part of the present congress being respon
sible for that, and Congressman Cable has
succeeded in doing as well as any other
member of the houe under these circum
stances, the thought of Gen. Henderson
being more successful in this congress
than he was in the past, being of course
too absurd for serious thought.
It is on a par, however, with the
Union's slur on the prominence Mr. Cable
and bis family have taken in Washington
social circles and the publication oy that
paper twice in succession of an article re
ferring to tbe efforts of ex-Congressman
Gest to hurry the Rock Island public
building along. Mr. Gest will no doubt
have the credit of putting up the building
whenever constructed, his desperately
frantic labors the only hard work he
ever did at Washington to have the
canal course shifted to benefit Capt.
Robinson having been attended by such
wonderfully successful results.
