ley, and yet Mr. McKlnley was In Con
gress before Mr. Shaw was out of the
law school. Twenty years later, Mc
Klnley was running for President, and
Shaw was winning his first prominence
In national nffnlrs as a McKlnley man
who stood stiff for sound money, un
dismayed by the adverse sentiment
then prevailing In Iowa. It was not
until 1897 that Mr. Shaw became a
candidate for any public office. Ha
was elected Governor of Iowa that
year. Two )ears later he was reelected
with doublo his original plurality.
