THE HOCK ISLAND ARGUS, TUESDAY, OCTOliEIt 2, lffUO
THE FORLORN HOPE.
Gen. flendorson anil Capt Robinson
Attempt to Brace It
Tee lrlrrtOB ,oorr,""
SakM a nwpe Effort.
Conjrrenairan T. J. Henderson of
Princeton is man for whom the people
of Rock Inland Lave the highest regard.
His services in behalf of the Hennepin
ransl have endeared hitn to all our ciit
tens, and whenever he comes to the
city be is cirttin of the most courteous
treatment, and every manifestation of
appreciation that can lei shown by our
people of his worth. He is always wel
come in Hock, Island, no matter what his
mission. But the motive which prompted
the general's visit last night To sacrifice
his own merit in an aim to save a man
who has not the lean attribute of a suc
cessful representative of tho rights of
tt ose he is supposed to represent, pos
sessing neither the ability nor the desire
to do bis duty as Gen. Henderson has
hiinaelf dope while heroic in the ex
t re roe placed him in a somewhat ridiculous
light. So it was that those who went to
Harper's theatre to Bee him on the first
opportunity offered since his splendid
achievement in behalf of the Hennepin
canal, pilied him no less than they re'
spected Lim. The champions of Gestism
got the general to come here to help brace
up a forlorn hope ami he did the best be
could to accompii-sh that end, but in all
candor and fairncxs it must be said that
it was the first time to the knowledge of
the people of Rock Ilnd in wb:ch the
general was bumilia'.ingly routed. Vet
this was a spectacle that happened in the
face and eyes of the people of Rck Isl
and who were present lat night. The
distinguished speaker of tl.e evening had
undertaken a task he was not equal to and
that no mn living would be equal to
And that was why they pitied him.
Tlie seats of honor on the stae last
evening, in addition to that occupied by
Gen. Henderson, were given to J. L
Haas, chairman of the republican con
gressional commi'.tee. Alderman W. F.
Sehroeder, Capt. T. R. Robinson, Robert
Bennett, E. I. Sweeney, Candidates Col
lins, Pearaalt and Cimphell, these con
stiluiing the confi Jenii il circle, while
Robert Koebler, S. W. Mc Master. Orrin
Skinner and others st on ihe outskirts
After tliu bund had played a tuneful
medley. Aid. W. F. Schroeder, as chairs
man of the evening, stepping forward.
stated that it afforded him great pleasure
to introduce a man who years ago had
represented this county in congress, one
who bad done so much for this county
and one who "with Congressman
Gem bad succeeded in getting the
Hennepin canal. Gen. Henderson was
given an exceedingly complimentary
reception as he advanced to speak. He
spoke of the honor he had had in the
past .f representing this city and
county in the boii'e of repre
aentatives for eight years. It
was that same number of years since he
had represented these people in the
bouse, but he came back with all the
gratitude in bis heart for the way the
people had manifested their appreciation
of his services. The chairman bad al
luded to his services in behalf of the Hen
nepin canal. It bad never seemed
proper for him to allude to these things
himself. These were matters of record
and Bcoke for themselves. He had been
accused of insincerity in bis efforts for
the canal. He bad, he said, labored for
the canal first as representative of this
canal and since, and was as proud of its
success as any one could possibly be,
tie did not look upon it as a question of
mere local interest; it was one of deep
interest to the entire northwest and
to the entire country. He had never in
terested biinself as to the terminal points
or as to the location of the lines, ne was
for the measure. Then he rang in the
part of his speech that he -was brought
here to do. It was the point toward
wbicb be had been leading and under
which be had been building the super
structure, but it was one of those start'
ling illustrations of a top too out of all
proportion to the superstructure, so it
all fell witb a dull thud when it was pu
on. isui tins was now tbe general put
it. While he was congressman from this
district and since, he said, one of tbe
truest and best of bis friends, one who
bad supported him in a manner which
waa in itself the beat evidence of a friend
was VY m. II. Gest. He relied upon bis
friendship and support and always found
him reliable, "lie was not in a position
to do as much for the canal as me," said
the general, "but you are indebted
to him, to Senator Cullom and to your
elves, to the people of Davenport and
Moline for the success of this measure,
Mr. Oest had not the opportunity to do
as much as we, but he has done as much
as any man could do, in bis situation."
The general stopped for breath, and
while be hesitated to see i f he had re
rr em tiered all be had planned to say an
audible sigh or relief escaped bis lips.
Then be went cautiously on a little fur
ther. He bad beard it said old soldiers
were against Mr. Oest. "now . unjust
and how ungrateful for a soldier to have
aught against Wm. II. Gest He bas
discharged hi duty in this" respect faith
fully. If you vote against Gest, vote
against him because you are not a repub
lican, because you are not in sympathy
with republican measures, because
you are in sympathy with demo
cratic principles, bat don't vote
against him because he has not done
his duty." These last tew utteranc.-s were
pounded out by the general in much the
same way that a man would attempt to
make an impression on a rubber foot ball
by hitting it with bis fists, and when be
had said tbe last word, he again stopped
for breath, and bis eyes involuntarily
glanced heavenward as if in plea for fori
givenes-. The general seemed to feel
better, for he had evidently discharged
the most disagreeable task of bis life.
He felt that he bad done his duty, and
then he turned his attention to the state
ticket, and said, that while the people
might afford to lose a congressman for two
years, they couldn't afford to let the state
go democratic, because if this was done it
would be gerrymandered, and the rennh-
licam would stand no show of reclaiming
tie nan nothing to say as to candi
dates, except to urge support of them.be
cause if the state should go democratic It
would be a much greater calamity than
to lose a congressman. The thought of Gest
and the way be bad been enjoined to keep
him in his mlnd,evident!y got into tbe gen
erals brain aRala for he said hero theifiTST kXl TUP CHI lilDDC

He looked around to Joe Haas to see
if be hid said enough on tbe Gest score.
but failing to catch the eye of the chair
man, who with Capt. Robinson and
Chairman Schroeder was having an ants
mated conversation in tbe rear of the
sUge.be launched out into a support of the
republican state ticket. He praise i Dr.
Edwards as an old friend and neighbor of
bis and then he devoted himself to the
republican national platform of 188$. He
upheld the silver bill, the force election
bill and lastly the tariff plank, tbe out
growth of which was the McKinley bill,
the shortcomings of which he indirectly
attempted to excuse on the ground
that the republican party bad
pledged itself to revise the
tariff. He left the subject long enongh
to put in a word in support of Reed's
quorum ruling, and getting back again at
the tariff, be defended the tin-plate and
wool tariffs on tbe same old ground that
they were necessary to foster and pro
tect home industries. He held that the
aggregate of tbe dutiable list was 44 per
cent, whereas it was 45 under tbe pre
vious law; held that the party had put all
sugars on the free list; that tbe McKinley
bill had been shamefully misrepresented,
and that the republican party bad aK
ways been for reduction of taxation. In
conclusion be begged that the McKinley
bill be given time for practical operation.
before it was condemned. The general
expressed a hope that be would bear
good news from Rock Isiand next Tues
day, and sat down.
. I . . . - -
nairman aenroeder, wbo bad, as
staled above, been in conversation witb
Joe Haas and Capt. Robinsan during
large part of the general's speech, then
came forward and said.
"CAPr, RoniNsoN wants to si-eak.
Tbe captain was a ready on his feet
to be received, and he at once took
off his overcoat and went at it. ne gave
bis opinion of the two great parlies, one
being termed tbe party of progress and
of benefit to mankind, and the other of
mud elingers. Then he rambled off into
the subject of currency. '"You know,"
he said, "that 1 am interested in the cur
rency and in a national bank, and if there
is so much money in it why did P. L
Mitchell, who, you all know, is a careful
and conservative business man, get out
of a national b uk and into a state bank?
Now I ask you why? The democratic
party is a tissue of lies from beginning
to end; they don't tell the truth about
the MeKin'ey bill, though I have not
read it, but 1 know it was devised by our
friends and that's enough."
After this wonderful display of logic,
eloquently expressed. Capt. Robinson
said be had known both the congressional
candidates from boyhood. Either would
do the best he could, but here be went off
again, "but there has been no argument
in this campaign; it bas all been mud
slinging. Now you all know of my con
nection with tbe ferry." There was a
man in this town, be said, wbo had pre
tended to have succeeded in getting tbe
bridge open free on tbe face of his oppo
sition. "Is there a man here who has
ever been stopped from going over that
bridg.-Y" he asked.
Thereupon be resumed bis rambling:
"Tbe A no us has said that I told Gest to
keep tbe bridge closed. Is that so? (Tbe
captain paced up and down in front of
tbe footlights.) Tbe bridge bas always
been open to anyone wbo could haul a
load not so big or bulky that
it could not pass. Is that not
so?" Then the captain went back
and pounded the table three times. But
tbe captain went on: Tbe only things
that bad been denied free admission to
the bridge (and the captaio omitted to
say that this was only in the season of
tbe year when tbe ferry was running)
was merchandise which was being
shipped by express from one state to the
other, and this was because tbe Rock
Island road had put its money into the
government bridge and ought to have
something to say about what went over
it. At this juncture tbe captain ranted
on into anotner enamel. Again we
will quote from bis own fluent tongue:
"If I have a representative there in con
grass, it is bis duty to introduce did when
a matter comes up that I think
should be heard on and let me be heard
Now isn't that so? When the orders
were to be changed regarding tbe use of
the bridge, I asked Mr. Gest to get per
mission from the secretary of war, that
I be beard, and be did it. Wasn't that
all right Wouldn't Cable have done
that? Wouldn't anyone else have done
that? Give me permission to speak when
the question came up as to whether tbe
bridge should be free? Wasn't that all
right? Now I ask yon, wasn't all that
which was in the Argus a lie? Yes, you
know it was a 1 e and tbe Arous knows
it was a lie. Wasn't it?"
After tuis stupendous tffort tbe cap
tain went back and pounded the table
again and then be said Gest bad done all
he could to accomplish "what be bad
been sent there to accomplish." He had
seen aid appreciated Gest's work
in Washington? "Gast bas represented us
fairly, truly and ably. Has any of you
ever asked Gest for one thing that be did
not fairly run to do it? I only asked him
for one thing, and be did it. Isn't that
so?" An ashy paleness took possession
of tbe countenance of Joe Haas, and be
attempted to either catch the captain's
eye or bis coat-tail, but the captain bad
the floor, and be continued to pace it off
excitedly. He went into a running
praise of the republican ticket. "Look
at It," he said, "ain't these fine looking
men? (pointing to Campbell and Pear
sail.) Are any of you afraid of these
men? Look at our man for sheriff, and
then think bow be stood by bis coun
try in time of wart (the repub
lican nominee, by the way, never even
enlisted. The captain was no doubt
thinking of the democratic candidate.)
But it was getting late. The captain
bad here and there said something about
the . McKinley bill being an excellent
measure, and in conclusion said if there
was anything that waa not understood,
to call around at his bank and he would
explain it. Then with the confession
that If he had known he was going to
make a speech he would have prepared
some facts, the captain gracefully retired.
He had given a great many more facts
than be expected to.
The faster a man runs in debt the leas
he is apt to get ahead. :

The organs favoring Gest have been
asking the soldier element to anppoit
him because he has been their f -iend,
whereas tbe more tbe matter has been
looked into the more shiftless the a tions
of this man appear. When not shiftless
be has been blundering. Whet not
blundering be his been indifferent. When
not indifferent he has been outrageous In
his treatment of his constituents.
The American lYibunt, a paper pub
lished in Indianapolis, Indiana, in the
interests of the soldier, has this to say
concerning Mr. Gest in its issue of March
28th. this yesr:
Representative Gest. of Illinois, ir tro
duced a bill in tbe house to give a 1 imp
sum of money as a sort of bounty to
each volunteer soldier on tbe following
basis: To those who served over ninety
days and leas than one year, fifty dol
lars; over one year and less than two
years, one hundred dollars: over two
years and less than three years, one hun
dred and fifty dollars, and so on to the
end of tbe string. In the language of
"Sockratees," we enquire of our dcurly
beloved congressman as we test the e as
ticity of our lower left eye-!id. "Do you
see anything green?'
This is simply a scheme to throw ilirt
in tbe eyes of the veterans, to cause
those who have no more sense than to
believe that the passage of such a law
would not retard other and better pension
laws, to jump at tbe idea that they would
have it just as we'd as not, and therefore
demand it, to confuse aud divide them to
such an extent that when the ses
sions are doted the represen a
lives in giving an account of
their stewardship csn explain, w th
some show ot truth, "you yourselves
were so divide 1 on what vou want tl al
we dared not act " The editor of ibis
paper has been forcibly nod poin'edlv
told by congressmen that tbe big difficul
ty in legislating for the veterans is t,ie
fact thai that they are not able to deter
mine just what the veterans want. If

ement into the fracas. Fi-r pity sake
slop it. Lt the veterans acree Let
tbem stand firm in the jus ice of their re
quests, and not he drawn off and divide!
by various measures introduced for the
sole purpoee of delay.
And to show how the soldiers think
about Gest s treatment of them in other
places, the A rocs published en Saturday
the remarks of the Monmouth Journal
which we here reproduce:
Why did Mr- Gest vote for the depend
ent pension bill instead of tbe servict
pension bill? The soldiers of this district
want a law passed to give a pension to
all honorably discharged union soldiers
and sailors, and Mr. Gest voted for a bill
wbicb will not give tbe old heroes a pen
sion until they become paupers. A nice
way to treat the soldiers certainly. If
Mr. Gest bad the interest of the poldier
at heart he would not want them to be
come paupers before he would see them
pensioned enough to repay '.beta for a
few of the hardships they encountered in
defense of tbe country. Mr. G?at prides
himself in his vols for a bill that classes
pensioners as paupers, but when election
day comes be will find thai tbe soldiers
do not sanction bis work.
