inning, when, wi'h the bases full, Mc
Guirk batted the ball square in the nose
for a screamer to right, clearing the
bases, he himself being caught in trying
to reach third on the. throw in At
his next turn at the bat, he cracked out a
single, allowing another run to score,

another sbut-out given to the Convicts.
Cunningham and Donnelly were the op

Address and Answer.
What the republican bookmakers who
fixed things up for the renomination of
Gest Friday night took the other repub
licans of this locality for, to say nothing
of what they think of the people at large,
would be a difficult question to answer.
After having called upon Mr. Gest
after Friday night's select conference,
and learning that be would be only too
willing to oblige his friends by becoming
a candidate, in view of the fact that
other counties through the district had
presented candidates indeed, had prom
ised to notify the committee in writing of
his acceptance, the committee gave to
their organ, the Union, of yesterday
morning a letter to Mr. Gest, and the
promised answer from him.
In its written appeal the committee in
forms Mr. Gest of its mission to wait
upon him and inform him of the action
taken, and to ask him to communicate
his answer in writing. This much of
course was intended to break the ice, and
it having beeu done to the utmost satis
faction, he responds in compliance with
the committee's wishes.
He first says he appreciates all the
kind expressions concerning himself.
Then he asserts that if it be the wish of
the county convention to be held on the
15th "to present my name to the district
convention I could not consider myself
a true republican and refuse, nor would
my refusal comport with my
personal obligation to the republicans
of this county who have heretofore three
times honored me by their selection for
that nomination. But I desire to say
further that, in my opinion, the first ob
ligation of the republicans of this county
is to take that course which will result in
success for cur party next November.
The success of our party, and trusting
the continued prosperity of our country,
is of infinitely greater impor
tance than the advancement of any
individual, or the advantage of
any particular locality. Two other gen
tlemen are candidates for the nomination
the Hon. Alex McLean, of McDonough
county, and the Hon. B. F. Marsh, of
Hancock county. I know both well;
they are men of high character, and un
questionable ability and unfaltering pa
triotism. There may be other candidates.
The district convention should nominate
the man, who, all things considered,
would most fully meet the wishes of the
people, and obtain a majority of their
suffrages. If the district convention
should again bestow upon me the honor
of their nomination, I will enter upon
the campaign with all such ability as I
have, and do my utmost to justify the
judgment of the convention."
Having said so much about himself
and this congressional district, and made
the hint broad enough, he enters into a
commendation of President Harrison's
administration, of the McKinley act, and
other republican measures, and con
cludes by again bestowing thanks for
The Union adds that the committee
"are well pleased with the reply and so,
we are sure, will be the republicans on
reading It." Of course the thought has
not entered the head of tbe republican
paper that the republicans of the county
and district may, instead of taking so
kindly to the book makers' scheme, object
to having the Gest morsel jtmmed down
their throats without being so much as
asked to pess judgement upon the pro.
priety of the move, to say nothing of
their absolute exclusion from the confer
ence of the select committee.
Perhaps, however, the republicans of
the county and district may view the ent
tire proceedings, as in fact they will be
very apt to view them, as the most cheeky,
presumptuous and unprecedented that
haye ever occurred in our political an
nals. Good hard nerve is a good thing
in politics, but that manifested by Gest
and his cohorts not only in this select
business, but in his attempt, to smooth
over his suit against the city is a sample
of something in that line not heretofore
known in the arena of politics, en

every reason to believe that there would

already, done if the contracts are thrown

before another start can be made.
Capt. Whitney's contract will not be
affected, as . it was approved before the
passage of the law, and be will go right
on with the work.
The contracts of Richardson & Mon

miles of canal trunk and the excavation

covered the excavation for the guard
