This much being done the convention
adjourned the favored ones to the Bush
nell convention leaving this afternoon,
and a more hike-warm lot of men, so far
their inclinations toward Gest, as a
whole, were concerned, has not started
on a political mission before. The
delegates bear their instructions as to
what to do in the matter of carrying out
the "select committee's" idea that Gest
should be nominated. The exceedingly
narrow margin bv whicn the Uest reso
lutions passed the convention, the oppo
sition to the same being led by Chairman
Keator, of the republican county committee
was as direct a repudiation of Gest's can
didacy by the ruling spirit of the conven
tion as it was of the clause in the same
resolutions endorsing his career as con
gressman, and doubtless had not the Mo
line contingent had pretty near its own
way in the making up of the county
ticket the opposition to the Gest candi
dacy, so marked in that city, would have
succeeded in defeating the movement in
his favor. Without commenting on the
mortification the action of the conven-
tion must have caused Mr. Gest him
self, the natural inference comes that if
the other congressional aspirants do not
do better in their own counties respect
ively.than Gest has in his, there is a most
excellent field for a dark horse candidate
who is with honor in his own country.
Sister Pajne will have the legislative
nomination without an effort.
Senator Bill Crawford of the lower end
and Sister Payne of the upper end, came
up to manipulate their respective locali
Moline should have betn pretty well
satisfied with the outcome of the conven
tion. Moline is generally satisfied when
it has everything its own why.
In justice to that gentleman, as well as
to the republican party in fact, it should
be said that the nominee for state's at
torney Is not the individual who distin
guished himself in connection with his
affiliation with Tomalley & Co., some
There don't appear much more danger
of Gest being nominated tomorrow than
there is of Wbitelaw Reid ever being in
a position to accidentally become presi
dent of the United States. The Ameri
can people, even in the republican party,
arejagainst a contingent that would lead
With all due deference tojthe conven
tion's action, Mr. Sturgeon was not treated
rightly by the ruling element of the con
venlion. He was beaten perhaps, by the
delegates of this city were in
structed for him, or pledged to him, but
owing to the fact that the delegates were
not voted by roll call, as is the custom in
conventions and by which Mr. Sturgeon
would have been able to tell what dele
gates were acting in good faith and what
were not. Mr. Sturgeon is thoroughly
disgusted, and may well be, for had he
received a fair shake he would have been
nominated, as there were enough dele
gates absolutely instructed for him to
have nominated him.
Pretty Small Tactics.
When the Hon. W. H Gest was in
congress be secured the passage of a bll
on the urgent request of Mr. JN. II. Zieg
ler, pensioning the latter's aged mother
on the ground that she had six stalwart
sons, all or whom became soldiers. Mr.
Ziegler is on the delegation to the con
gressional convention, and will have a
stronger motive than duty and sense for
standing by Mr. Gest. Such a service
naturally brings out one 01 man s noblest
The above paragraph was no doubt
calculated to whip Nlc Zeigler in line for
Gest, but if we mistake not it will mis
carry. Mr. Zeigler bitterly opposed the
Gest resolution in yesterday's conven
tion, and was no dcubt actuated by con
scientious party motives. inis puduc
allusion to what Mr. Gest did for his
mother in order to secure Mr. Zeigler's
support is a really small piece of busi
ness, and will hardly redound to Mr.

lat Wight's meeting of the Hanletpal
Boris- Various matters Pertaining;
tw the City Vlvm Attention.
At the meeting of the city council last
evening considerable business of minor
importance was attended to. A commu
nication was read from members of the
fire department asking for a clothing al
lowance of $6 25 par month. Aid.
Corken, of the fire and light committee,
moved that the prayer of the petition be
granted, but it was referred to the fire
and light committee and city attorney to
A communication was read from Aid.
Knox, who was prevented from attend
ing by sickness, calling the council's at
tention to the condition of the Twenty -first
street sewer, where a 10-inch water
main passes through it, and which it was
thought should receive attention before
the pavers reach tbat locality." Aid.
Evans spoke on the subiect, asking the
council to do something in the matter
immediately, and it was accordingly
moved by A!d. Guyer that the superin
tendent of water works be instructed to
have a "U" put in at that point at once.
An ordinance granting the Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy railroad the right
to lay a stub track on Nineteenth street
to the warehouse of the Geiser Manu
facturing company was reported by Aid.

tion of Aid. Guyer.
Aid. Guyer, of the sewer committee,
reported having been in correspondence
with different firms on the matter of an
electric motor for the sewer pumps and
that some bids for furnishing it would
probably be received shortly.
Id regard to the petition of the fire
men for a clothing allowance, it may be
said tbat it is only a fair demand. Some
of the aldermen may feel somewhat
backward about making the allowance
on account of the manner in which the
allowances for simi'ar purposes are used
by some members of the police depart
ment, but Capt. Brahm states tbat if the
allowance is made the members of the
department will always appear in full
TIME IS VALUABLE.
Something Ought to He Done With, the
Columbian Project This Week.
It is expected, as stated in Saturday's
Argcs, that the present week will deter
mine the fate of the Columbian project.
The plan adopted at the last meeting of
the Twin-City committee of maintaining
the original flan of a $100,000 corpora
tion is so practicable and meets so
promptly with the approbation of every
one who is interested in the undertaking,
that it seems only for the committee as
signed to the completion of the corpora
tion to undertake its duties
to insure the entire suc
cess of the scheme. The fact that
each day draws us nearer the beat of a
campaign when all else but politics will
be lost sight of, should induce the pro
jectors of the Columbian enterprise to
greater efforts and renewed zeal, so that
the matter may be settled now once and
for all. The remainder of the week
ought to be given to the work on this
great project, and there should be the
activity manifested on the part of the
sub-committee having it in hand, that is
essential to making it the success that it
was planned originally to make it, and
that it is capable of being made.
Every day that passes is so much val
uable time lost.

The St. Louis Republic in a descriptive
account of a trip up the Mississippi
The picturesque scenery of the upper
Mississippi really begins at Muscatine,
where the great vine-clad hills look down
upon a valley rich with the green and
golden melons for which that portion of
Iowa is famous. Thirty miles farther
away he the three cities cf Davenport,
Rock Island and Moline, bunched to
gether in profitable activity along the
riverside. Here the rapids begin, and if
darkness overtakes the steamer at this
point there is no more traveling until
daylight is ushered in. In times of high
water the rapids are of more importance
to the passenger than any other portion
of the river, but in low water the sharp,
jagged, uggly-appearing rocks rear their
beads in ever direction, threatening des
truction to any craft which by chance
may strike them. Two or three hours of
slow, toilsome effort, dragging the great
anchor at boat's length, leaves the rapids
behind, and once more the deep-toned
chug of the engines sends the boat flying
on its way.
