THE ROCK ISLAND AKGUS, FlilDAY, AUGUST 20. 1890.
Hia tirrat Qaalltlesj.
"Give us the zeal, the perseverance, the
ardor, the indefatigable, able tenacity and
stern sense of duty of a man like Gest,"
says the newly found champion In a burst
of eloquence with fine phrensy rolling.
The splendid qualities set forth are too
various and too noble to be fully realized
at a moment's thought.
There is no one who knows Mr. Gest
who will not accord him his due. No
sensible person would in any way attempt
to manufacture aught against him. His
good qualities are known; his weaknesses
are the common lot. All of his inten
tions may be of the best, morally, so
cially and even politically. But in the
latter case it is the attempt to make the
square pin fit the round hole. lie is not
made of that sterner stuff that is requi
site to do battle in congress. Here his
weakness lies, and no people are more
aware of the painful fact than theme who
live in this district. Neither will it do
to beg the question by saying that his
successor could or would do no better.
That remains to he seen. He could
hardly do worse. That is another pain
But why permit one's self to fall into a
rhapsody like the quotation given above?
The zeal of Mr. Gest is best known to
himself. He has never taken anyone
inio his confidence regarding it. It may
with him be a latent quality requiring
exercise or cultivation. To be useful it
must be put in practice. This he has
failed to do, unless in a self-consuming
Perhaps he has been persevering, nnd
perseverance, we are told, will accomplish
the desired end. The sorry part of it is
that this laudable quality ascribed to Mr.
Gest has accomplished so little. And
what of his ardot? In what manner has
he displayed hts warmth? Has he drawn
the attention of congress .o him by his
impetuosity? Has he given men cause
to think by bis intensity of persistence
that he was deadly in earnest? Men win
by such methods even without the aid of
eloquence. Has he outlined his object
and then pursued it with that zeal and
ardor and perseverance he would be apt
tc devote to his personal affairs? And
Mr. Gest may have a very stern sense of
duty but has he turned it to practical acs
count? A dying man on a bed of sick
ness may have a similar feeling, and of
the highest order, but of what avail ex
cept to himself?
Why not sum the matter up honestly?
Mr. Gest is serving his second term in
congress. He mut have found himself
long ago unequal to the occasion. He
may have ardently desired to do his duty
but must have found that he could not
cope w ith the situation. It is no fault of
his that he wants another term. His
personal interest will outweigh his
patriotism. The needs of the district
must give way to his own ambilion. In
this, no doubt, he is very human and no
Detter nor worse than other men. But
the whole matter can be summed up in
this: Mr. Gest is a very weak man in
Washington. Let him be retired.
A leei-lyet Villain.
Capt. H. C. Cleaveland, of the Manu
facturers' Mutual Insurance company of!
Moline, which held a policy on the barn
ofChas. Cushman, at Carbon Cliff, and
fired by Al. Evans, the son-in-law, on
Sunday, Aug. 17, has succeeded in un
earthing a villainous and diabolical
scheme on the part of Evans. It was to
exterminate the entire family with the ex
ception of a little girl, beginning with his
wife, then Cushman and his wife and then
to burn everything on the premises and
finally wind up by ending his own miser
able existence. Not only the barn, but
the house near by, which was rescued by
the merest accident, was to be burned to
the ground. It is a fortunate thing that
a man of Evans' murderous and tlcstnio
tive instincts is safely lodged in the coun
ty i ail. when be comes out of which it
it will be to start to the penitentiary.
Capt. Cleaveland does not believe thdre is
any ground whatever for the insanity

ice has never before been charged in the
public print to Mr. Hurst, nor is it char
acleristic of any reporter other than those
employed by the Union. The natural

'It wouM pay Davenport today to ex

her. Evidently he was ler brother. His
quiet face showed that he, too, had a share
in her grief. As soon as she saw him she
broke into sobs, and woidd have thrown
herself into his arms. B it he set her gen
tly aside. "Wait a minute, Nettie," he said
"till 1 fix you up a bit."
Then he picked up her bagB and stowed
them under the seats, acd put her boxes
and umbrella in the rack, and folded up
her wraps neatly. After that he took off
his own hiKh hat and put on hia traveling
cap, hung np his top coat, stowed his own
lugKHg-e safely away, she matching him all
the while with an air of i adignant protest
that he could care for those petty things
at such a time. And when at last every
thing was shipshape and tidy he sat down
beside her and said kindly: "Now, dear,
you can cry all you like, aud l comforta

And the did cry a little. But somehow
things didn't look half so bad as they did
