Louis Eckharl, Mr. Gest made hie greatest, and possi bly his last political effort of this cam paign at Mnline last evening, and no en deavor was spared by the party managers in the county to make the event an im pressive and lasting one. With the as- sistance of a small detachment from each of the marching clubs of Rock Island, the Moline clubs managed to turn out about 150 men with torches and headed by the Light Guard band, marched the enthusi astic torch bearers about the town for an hour previous to the calling of the meet ing to order, in hopes of drumming up an audience, and so weary and foot-sore were the faithful trampers when they were finally halted, that the majority of them blew out their lights and made breaks for home. For this a reprimand was necessary from the platform on Mar ket square, where the meeting was held. It was demanded that there be more light upon the scene and that the torch-bear ers oe stationed in the form of a semi circle about the outskirts of the crowd to illuminate it. Thus the edict went forth and while it was raiher touirh upon the torch-bearers, it had to be obeyed, but one by one the torches disappeared during the speech of the evening, until at the end of his remarks, the ambitious congressman found himself enveloped almost in utter darkness, a dim light only being afforded by a row of lanterns above his head After Mr. Gest had been introduced by Assessor C. C. Waters, he went at his task without delay and hustled it through without particular incident. He halted at the outset long enough to apol ogize for hiB scarcity of hirsute adorn ment,and to request the privilege of keep ing his hat on as a guard against con tracting cold. This was quite a hit and it took yery nicely. The meeting, be said, reminded him of the days of 1K60, not only because he had not seen any such enthusiasm in the county before since thul time, but because he could see a reason for it. In '60 there was a great principle before the people and he did not deem it necessaiy to remind his hearers of what that priuciple was. but now there is another great principle at Stake. It is not the same question now: it is another contest, not perhaps of such deep significance, but one that will even tuate in the depredation of this country if successful. The question is, the speaker asserted, whether the people shall maintain high up the otandard of civili zation they now enjoy. It is commonly called a question of protection to Ameri can industries, homes and people; or free trade, or giving of favors to the old world. 'What is the meaning of pro tection?" the speaker asked, and straight way he proceeded to give the same de finition he did at the Franklin square meeting here Saturday night. It is not wholly in a sense of fear that the republi can party seeks protection. "We seek protection against the insignificant things when they come in great swarms." He spoke of the insignificance of chinch bugs and grasshoppers singly, but the power and destructive effects when ap pearing in great masses. "We seek pro tection against the chinch bugs, grass hoppers and the lice of the old world. What is the civilization of America, as compared with the civilization of the old world? We don't want any Chinamen in this country." Tariff, Mr. Gest attempt ed to explain, is simply a tax, (and thus far he spoke knowingly) a tax on im ported goods. Then be said the demo cratic party had dodged and straddled the question and flopped about it all these years. In 1856 the democratic party had said, the time has now come to declare in favor of progressive free trade. The same is reiterated by that party now. In 860 it favored a tariff for revenue, and in 1S76 it denounced protection. He had read the president's message (and strange to say, too,) he had found nothing in it about favoring protection. The president had said protection only protects the manufacture' "It does not simply pro tect the manufacturer," said Mr. Gest; you know better than" that." And then he tried to prove something about demo cratic doctrines being not the right thing, by citing Sam Randall's vicws,and speak ing of him as a democrat. Without tariff, the speaker asserted, that England would flood this country with her goods and stop every manufac tory. The papers of England are jubi lant oyer the Mills bill. We couldn't expect favors of a foreign government, Mr. Gest said. Governments are utterly i thou t grace or k i ndnesa toward each oth er. That s the way the American people propose to be. Reduction of the tariff means reduction in the cost of living, per haps for awhile, but it will afterward react; but then it will be too late; the mills and factories will have disappeared and the machines rusted and sold for old iron The democratic party is the party of free trade, the party for the old world and not the new, for English people and not for Americana. After carrying out this train of thought for some time, with here and there a blast at the democratic party, the speakergave "the common people" some taffy and then dismissed the tariff question by re ferring to matters of local interest, as he termed them, but in reality a few words in praise and explanation of Mr. W. H. Gesl's public service. He spoke of the survey for the Moline harbor. which wiH be made; the $15,000 appropriation for the lateral canal which will be made, the 1275.000 for the rebuild log of the water power dam which will be made, and he expected congress pass bills the present week appropriating (500.000 altogether to benefit the gov eminent, but incidentally for the benefit of the men who get employment on the island. Finally he struck the back pay project. All, there was the rub the status of the back pay and when Mr. Geat struck that subject, one that had been long deferred in hit remarks, there was a such perceptible moving up toward the platform of anxious-eyed and open-eared workingmen.who had attended the meet' ing, not in gratification of political pref erence!, but to bear about that measure of so much importance to them that it made the speaker uneasy. A dozen bills, he uid, had been introduced on that sub ject. He bad introduced one which had been sent to the committee on claims Finally Gov. Long framed a bill wry satisfactory one which, with some amendments, was at length put upon the calender of the house. This was the one of such vast importance to the island workmen, who had worked during the time. Mr. Gest said, from 1877 to 1883. Well, the time for the bill to be called np expired before a Tote upon it was reached. The bill was in the hands of the chairman of the committee on labor, and he would not bring it np until he got his convict labor bill through, a measure that the speaker said would never pass. The back pay bill has never yet been presented to the house and as only the chairman of the committee in whose hands it is could bring it up, he charged Congress man O'Neil with being the cause of the failure of the bill to pass. Mr. Gest said he could not get Speaker Carlisle to recognize him on the floor without step ping on somebody's toes, yet be acknowl edged that in his belief Mr. Carlisle was a fair man, and he believed would like to see the bill passed. But it was the fault of the speaker's brother congressman, J. J. O'Neil, that it had not passed. He told all about how much he bad done for the bill.and made in the same connec tion the statement that he was anxious to get it through before the adjournment of the present congress "for reasons which you understand as well as I could tell you," as he expressed it. Then some time was given to flaunting the "bloody shirt" and in concluding he acknowledged that he had not prepared himself upon the tariff question, but that if the democratic doctrine prevailed all the factories in Moline, and all over the country would be shut up, and the labor ing people go to the poor house. Mr. W. A. Metse was introduced, and while most of the audience had been frozen out by this time, he made a des Derate effort to say something in explan ation of Geo. W . Gamble's incompetency as deputy circuit clerk, as he had always found bim diligent and of an obliging disposition. PUSHING FORWARD. Another Meeting of the Improve ment Association. nfaaaeroas Important natters Acted Upon--reraaaaent charters Bag-ast A Procrraalve Bdy. A ttre&t Mneak. The Union, speaking as it probably does for Boss Wells and the other repub lican campaign manipulators in Rock 1st- and county, alludes to the challenge of Chairman Vinton, of the democratic county committee, for a dabate of the tariff question by Messrs. MrEmry and O'Mara as "cheeky," and it says: Of course we do not know what the answer will be. as the challenge by its language can only be accepted or r jectei: by the republican committee, but it strikes the Cnion as a last desperate re sort to gel audiences for democratic stumpers. The republican speakers are heartily welcomed and given big meet ings wherever they go, and the demo crats would not only liKe to catch on to the crowds which tliev draw, but use up half the time disputing tha facts and ar guments advanced in the other half. Let the democrats work dp their own meet ings; they will then occupy their own lime. Of course the Cnion does know but if by any possible means it speaks the truth, when it savs it don't know the Akous docs know, that the challenge of Chairman Vinton will never be accepted, and we will give Boss Wells the credit of being instrumental in preventing the ac ceptance of such a challenge. He does not, let it be said to his good judgement, propose to make any more embarrassment for Pal O'Mara than he can possibly help. As to the & ston's excuse about a scheme to attract audiences, we believe the slang phrase "Rats," could be no more fitly applied. The challenge must be either accepted or rejected. Which shall it be Mr. Wells? emfrratlc SleetlnKM. The up-towu democratic club bad an other successful meeting at its rooms it Dimick's Twentieth street block last evening. Chairman Looney presided, and in addition to a large number of members of the club, many representa tive democrats were present. A commit tee on finance was appointed, composed of Frank Wheelan, Robert Wagner, Schmidt and n. M. Abell. A commit tee to confer with the congressional and county committee, Geo. Dodge, Chas. Whelan and John Penders. A number of additional names were added to the roll of membership, and it was decided to meet every Tuesday night during the campaign, and to take steps looking to the making of the organization perma nent hereafter. All members of the Sunny-side club are requested to attend a meeting of that club tomorrow evening at the club's hall- Good speakers will be on hand. Every member is requested to turn out and let there be a rousing demonstration. The democrats of South Rock Island held an interesting meeting last evening. City Attorney McEniry was the speaker, and delivered a telling talk on the great questions of the day. Hon. Chas. Dunham, of Geneseo, speaks at Moline one week from this evening. i Attempted Intlaaidatloa. Rumors of attempted intimidation of street laborers. by prominent lights in the republican ranks one a street boss and the other an ex-city officer have been afloat of late, and have been traced to a reliable source. One of the street force, a teamster, who has just come in from the country, says that he was approached and threatened that unless be turned out in the H. & M. ranka and wore a gay col ored uniform and carried a torch at Sat urday night's Franklin square meeting, he would be deprived of his situation, and starved out of boose and home If he did not vote the republican ticket. The la borer, who had had little experience in political modes and methods of this sort. ras truly and sincerely frightened, but on telling the circumstanees to friends, he was assured that he was the victim of a bluff' and to have no fears. ' Others there are who have been made subjects of similar "bluffs," but it hasn't worked M attic Vlrkrra. The clever little commedienne, Mattie Vickers, appears at Harper's theatre to morrow evening in her great success, "Jacquine." The charming star gave an entertainment at Clinton Monday evening and of it the Xam of yesterday morning says: Pretty Mattie Vickers sang and danced her way into the immediate and lasting esteem of a large and select audience at the Davis opera house last evening. As "Jacquine" she was simply perfect,aod the audience was not slow in letting her know that they appreciated this fact. The support given the young lady was worthy of her and the whole entertainment was better than has been witnessed here in a longtime. Clinton will always be glad to say "How yon vaa anyhow? The special meeting of the Citizens' Im provement association was called to or der at tl e city council rooms at 8 o'clock last evening by President Hass. The at tendance was probably the largest of any meeting held since the organization. After Secretary Medill had read the min utes of the previous meeting the president stated the object of the meeting, which was to perfect plans in regard to an import -ant establishment, the nature of which was deemed best not to disclose at pres ent, but which has heretofore been re ferred to in the Abqus. After cons ider able discussion it was decided to refer the matter to suitable committee, with power to act ; and President Hass was on motion added to the committee and made its chairman. The secretary reported having added twenty-three new names to the member ship roll since the last meeting, and an opportunity being given for those present not yet members to become such, several new names were added, making a total of 110, a very gratifying showing indeed, and one which will be rapidly improved. Mr. John Weyerhauser tendered his re signation as chairman of the committee on manufactories, and on motion Mr. T. B. Davis was chosen to fill the vacancy. Mr. Weyerhauser still remains on the committee. Mr. Baville Johnston, or the com mittee on advertising reported that his committee bad prepared the form for the back of the advertis ing envelope suggested in the last committee retort, and had bad several thousand printed. Arrangements had been made for printing those already in the bands of business men at a cost of fifty cents per thousand, and also to have fifty thousand new envelopes printed, which would be furnished to business men at cost of the envelopes only . The committee was also considering a letter head of a similar nature and a monthly advertising newspaper, the plans for which were no't yet perfected. The com mittee also desired to publish a map of the city which should extend for a radius of three hundred miles in which the po sition of Rock Island as a central point between Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha and Minneapolis should be correctly shown. The committee further reported favorably upon a proposition of W. P. Qutyle and H. P. Simpson to pub lish a pamphlet in the interest of the as sociation, and setting forth the advanta ges of the city and locality, and upon motion of Mr. H. J. Lowrey, the adver tising committee was by unanimous vote of the association, instructed to complete the contract. The report of the committee on free bridges was called for, and Mr. Johnston of the special committee appointed to aid the regi'lar committee in securing the consideration of the board of supervisors, reported that they had bad a resolution offered in the board favoring the accept ance of the bridges, but that it bad been tabled; also that they bad secured the adoption of a resolution for the appoint ment of a committee of five to invest! -1 atrative. gate the legal aspects of the matter, to report at the next December meeting of the board. They believed that at least three out of the five members favored the plan and thought it would be a good plan for the business men indi vidually to correspond with the membets of the committee and impress upon them the advisability of the board doing its share to make the transfer possible. They bad tried to obtain an official opinion from Attorney General Hunt in regard to the lega'ity of the plan, but that gentle man was out canvassing the state and they had been unable to do so. The com mittee thought if the council considered the matter as favorably as the board seemed to, it would soon take definite Bhape. On motion of O. J. Dimick the com mittee was continued and instructed to obtain if possible, an official expression from the city council in its favor. Mr. H. J. Lowrey, of the committee on Sixth avenue extension, reported that his committee had met and decided to ask the association to add some resident of that locality to the committee. On motion Messrs. Gilpin Moore and Robert Wagner were added to the committee. The committee on special assessments was called, and Mr. J. H. Buford offered a resolution providing for the examina tion and revision of the ordinance now before the council. Mr. Buford said that no doubt many imperfections and defects would be found in the ordinance, and it should be gone over by those who would be affected by it It was a matter of the utmost importance and should be done carefully . The resolution was adopted Dr. Paul, of the special committee on suitable quarters, made the same report which had been rejected at the previous meeting, In favor of the room on the cor ner under Harper's theatre. The report was followed by quite a lengthy discus. sion, in which there were several offers of rooms, heretofore spoken of, by Messrs Dimick, Crampton and others. Dr. Paul said that then had been a very general desire to re consider the decision of the previous meeting in yiew of the advantages of having a room on the first floor near the center of town, where permanent head quarters could be arranged with some one who would pay one-half of the rent,and after a general interchange of views the committee was unanimously instructed to engage the room at $15 per month and to furnish and prepare it for the use of the association. The meeting then adjourned to meet at the president's call BRIKFLET8. Mattie Vicketi tomorrow night. Large fine chickens at C. C. Trues- dale's. Fine eating apples at C. C. Trues- dale's. Hr.
