60 SAYS THE CHICAGO "TIMES."
The Chicago Time has made s thor
ough canvas of the Eleventh congression
al district, and is therefore enabled to
furnish a pretty reliable view of the out1-
look of the present campaign. Tbe cor
respondent of lhat paper writing from
this city says:
The Eleventh congressional district, is,
in accordance with lime honored prece
dent, all torn up this campatn. the rc
pultliuaus Uejoud all question hold the
balance ot power, um oeiwLtn jealousies,
bickerini?'. and unwise nominations Mr-
William H. Neecc has twice landed high
and dry in cougress. liis first election
was owing to the ancient feud between
Mai. II. V. M Claunhrv and Col. B. V.
March. Mr. Neece made a hard light
against the republican candidate and won
tiie .lay. In Mr. Alexander 1'. Pe
ine wits chiisen as the standard-bearer of
the republicans. Neece made anolhir of
his peculiar campaigns, and notwilhstand
ing the apparent harmony among bis ad
vetsaries, warmed Mr. Pttne lo the ex
tent of 371 majority. Kock I-land cotiif
ty usually ha llie balance of power in
the congressional district. It rolls tit
majorities of from LINK) to i.CA) for the
republican ticket. The immense niauu-
tacturtng establishments ot KocK .fsland
and Moliue employ several thousand toil
ers, and every mother's son of whom is a
voter and never nelects to visit the poll
ing places on election day. Nccce gen
erally receives the support of the laboring
men of Hock Island comity, and this very
fact accounts largely for the nomination
by the republicans of Hon. W. H. Host,
of ibis city. The fight 19
A KKM.UihMll.Y WARM ONE.
Mr. Nccce conducts a campaign with
rather an unique method. He avoids the
beaten p;tlhs of travel, and takes lo the
fields and farms, the hedges and the ha
zel buish. The gentleman seldom avails
himself of the steam-cars, prefenng to
tide through tbe lanes and country roads
Since tbe days of the "onc-hoss shay"
nothing like Mr. Neete's campaign equip
age has ever been seen. His horse is an
old sway-backed spavined steed, the har
ness is rusty and well worn, ami the bug
gy is a relic of the prehistoric age. The
vehicle w as originally treated to a coal or
two of red paint. This, however, has long
since disappeared, and the conveyance is
innocent of varnish. For all this, how
ever, the old horse is a fair single-footer,
the harness answers all practicable purs
poses, and the bnggv is a very comfort
able vehicle. Mr. Neece is a third time
on the war-path. Ills friends believe he
will win the day, and it really looks as it
their predictions will be verified.
The republicans, or at least a great
part of their number, are not very highly
A PIECE OE pnAHP PRACTICE
played at tbe Monmouth convention,
which resulted in the nomination of Mr.
Gest. M. M. Sturgeon and Pat O'Mara
had a petition signed bv three or four
hundred workingmen. urging the conven
tion to select Mr. Gest and promising
their support. The petition has disap
peared, but it is stated upon good author
ity that the document in its oiiginal con
dition simply asked the Illinois congress
men to favor the bill granting the em
ployes at the Kock Island arsenal extra
pay for two hours' time worked each day
after the passage of the eight-hour law.
In some way the introduction to the reso
lution was doctored into an endorsement
of Mr. Gest, and tbe workingmen feel
they have been sadly duped by Ihe politi
cal firm of O'Mara A Sturgeon . Gest's
friends had an alleged workingman at the
Monmouth convention. This individual,
by name Horatio Michael McCartv, on
behalf of the laborers of Hock Island,
urged the nomination of Mr. Gest. Mc
Cartv has lived here for some years. First
he affiliated with the greecbackers, next
Willi the Knights of Labor, and for the
last few years has been the street com
missioner of Kock Island, for which posi
tion lie is indebted to the republican
parly. He is a workingman in theory
only, simply a fair ward uolttican. Cant.
Dryden, of Monmouth, was the leading
candidate as against Gest. He has a
good army record and is a very active
republican. The Stumeon-McCaribv
artifice knocked Dryden's chances into a
cocked-hat. and the ex-soldier was
shelved in tbe inlerest'of Mr. Gest. Mr.
Drydeu's friends, appreciating tbe fact
that they had been cheated out of a nom
ination by political fraud, are whetting
up long knives with which to eviscerate
Mr. Gest, and they w ill be heard from at
the coming election.
has resided in Kock Island quite a num
ber of years. He is a lawyer by profes
sion, and has never held an elective of
fice other than a superintendencv of the
public schools of the countv. He is a
very shrewd advocate and counselled
Tbe gentleman has no very great persona!
follow ing in Kock Island, and his never
lietrayed any desire to a meliorate the con
dition of the laboriug man until this
campaign. He is in thorough accord
with them at this time, and is busilv en
gaged in making the acquaintance of old
mechanics, who have lived side by side
with him in Kock Island for the last
twenty years. His solicitude for the wel
fire fit the workingman is said to be far
fetched aud altogether too recent to be of
much benefit during the present cam
paign. Tne commutation of the life-sentence
of one Patrick Grogan, a convict in Ihe
Illinois penitentiary, is among certain
people being used as an argument in
favor of Mr. Gest, who, by the way, was
the chief factor in securing eiccutive
clemency. Gorgan some yeara ago,
through a spirit of sheer wickedness, laid
in wait for an old. inoffensive German
named Conrad Wittieh. Aa the farmer
was (hiving lo his home Grogan struck
him in tbe back of the head with a paving-stone,
crushing his skull and killing
him. Grogan probably deserved hang
ing, as there was absolutely no canae for
the assault, but a petit jury sent bi n to
tbe penitentiary for life. The case was
carried to the supreme court, and that
tribunal promptly affirmed the sentence
The opinion can be found in the 7th
Illinois Reports, page 270. Mr. Gest
w rote a number of Idlers in the interest
of Grogan, tad contributed lirgely to
ward securing s commutation of bis sen
tence to fourteen vears' imprisonment.
Sen's friends ars using the fin', araoeg
some of the Irish-Americans, is an argu
ment in favor of his election to con
THE ISllEF.NrtAC KEK8
of the district have endorsed and will
support Mr. Neece. The employes of
the machine-shops and mauutactones oi
Kock Island mri Mollne havo always
voted for him, and will probably remain
steadfast in their advocacy of his claims.
Three or four alleged workingmen are
racing over the district, making speech
es for Mr. Gest. McCarthy is one ot
the number, and a retired barber named
PalFcrron is also stumping through the
countryin Gest's behalf. Ferron's hard
est work in life was done while in tbe
regular army. He served a year or two
at the Kock Island Arsenal, and was
discharged from the service on account
of injuries resulting from the kick of a
mule or horse. He became a barber for
a little while, but at present is devoting
his entire attention to wire pulling and
The"mo6t active, substantial republi
can politicians in the district have dur
ing the last five or six vears evidently
become disgusted over the turn of affairs
and kept out of the tights. Such gen
tlemen as Morris Rosenfleld, C. H. Deer-
ey, and Henry Curtis are not talking
much interest in congressional matters
these days. None ot them attended the
republican convention which nominated
Mr. (.Jest, and they don't appear to be
working very hard in the hoe of secur
ing a party victory. Numerous other old
war-horses, like senator John ilelcher,
are, contrary to their usual custom, de
voting their entire time to thelrm'-aolion
of individual business. Not that they
are in sympathy wtlh Mr. Neece, but
have simply lost all inclination to light
the battles of congressional candidates.
As a campaigner Mr. Gest is not a
success. He is a poor stump-speaker,
and fails to arouse the enthusiasm of the
republicans in the district. His cam
paign is evidently suffering f
THE WANT OF H'NDS.
Pat U'Mata said the other day that he
must go lo Chicago and get some money
to be used in Mr, Gest s behalf. O'Mara
expecls lo see the state committee to-dav
or to-morrow, but he will probably ex
perience much difficulty in getting Lonj
Jones and Dan Shepard lo "give down."
O Mara, who Hopped over from the dem
ocracy in 1x84, is one of the most zeal
ous workers in Gest's behalf. Mr O'Mara
is said by his intimates to be the owner
of two votes. His own is one of the
number, but its mate his not up to this
time been discovered, although dtlegent
search has been made for a clew therein.
Mr. Neece is very strong in Kock Is
land. He whittled down Petrie's major
ity in 1H4 in this county to 220, and will
probably do just as well this time. Mr,
Uuesing. of tbis city, a very shewd prog-
noslicator, thinks Mr. Neece will beat
all previous records in November and re
dtice Gest's majority to a nominal figure
The other counties in the district will
probably vote as Ihey did in 1882 and
1854. The Marsh, Dryden, and Flet
cher ieoubltcans are at sixes and sevens
They seem to appreciate the fact'that
Hot k island did not do very much for
Marsh in 1882. Peine s friends are will
ing to see Gcsl knifed, because tbe Slur,
geon element sulked in 1884. Moreover.
some of the republicans in the interior
counties were willing to give tbe nomina
tion to Mr. Gest and throw the burden
of electing the candidate upon Rock Isl
and county, and as one of them rather
significantly remarked at tbe Monmouth
convention, "If Gest gets beat ,Rock Isl
and can never ask anything more of the
republicans in this district."
It really looks as if Gest would be add'
ed to the martyred Marsh and Peine.
The scheme worked by Sturgeon and
O'Mara is proving a boomerang. Tbe
greenbackere arc supporting Neece. as
are also ihe greater number of working
men. The state committee will do ils
best to pull them through. Senators
Logan and Cullom will, it is understood,
make a number of speeches in the district
during the campaign, but tbe voters here
aways are not easily swayed by political
