THE PRESIDENTIAL TEAM
Iowa's Governor Popular With
Rxprrs ftlona From KrprVf entatue
nfmerraia Iffrr4 by the Iav-rnpoi-t
If there is any one agency in Iowa to
Which Horace Boies owes his present
prominence not only in Iowa, but in na
tional politics, it is the DaveDport Dem
ocrat. That paper, it was. which brought
him out for governor in 1S69, exhausted
every resource in bthalf of his election,
and with the same energy and enthusiasm
labored for his nomination and success at
the last election. Immediately upon be
ing assurtd of Gov. Boies' triumph in
November, the Democrat hoisted his name
us an availalle candidate for pres dentitl
honors in '92, that paper being entitled to
the credit of the first in Iowa to suggest
his name in such distinguished connec
tion. Since the presentation of tis name
Managing Editor Tilhcghast wi.h charac
teristic enterprise has entered into a
thorough and systematic canvass of the
country in support of Gov. Boies' candi
dacy. The best part of two pages of
Sunday morning's edition :s given to
the subject, and the Democrat in its in
troductory comments says:
Since the result of the election on Nov.
3 in Iowa became officially known, the
Davenport Democrat has sought to learn
how the governor of Iowa is regarded in
other states, in all parts of the country.
Hundreds of newspapers reprtsentative
of the political sentiment in the west, at
the east, in the north, and in the south
have made very generous and unsolic.ted
notices of Gov. Boies. The current has
been strongly in his favor as a presiden
tial candidate, so marked in fact that to
disguise it would be to ignore the posi
tive drift of opinion.
With a view of learning how Gov.
Boies stands with the country, the Demo
crat addressed a letter to the more
than 200 democratic members of the
Fifty-secocd congress. These represen
tatives are all in touch with their con
stituents. They better know, perhaps,
what the people are talking and thinking
about than any other class of
citizens of equal number. It is their
business to inform themselves. Not all
have answered Many congressmen haye
written private letters in reply, giving
reasons why an expression of preference
would not, in their opinion be wise.
Others have civen notice that they have
in preparation a stattment. Still others
bave met the question f quarely and the
result it the following interesting sym
posium of political opinion.
The views of the Illinois delegation to
congress will be tead with particular in
terest, and hence they are given in full:
"W. C. Jfiwberry, Fourth district I
have the greatest admiration for the abil
ity and energy of Gov. Bies and desire
to congratulate the democrats of Iowa on
his election, but I do not deem it desira
ble to express any prtferer.ee for candi
dates to be entertained in 1892. He will
certainly make most excellent material if
wanted and it is not at all unlikely that
lie wdl be before the convention very
strongly, since his ability and importance
are entirely sufficient for tuch prefer
ence. H. W. Snow, Ninth district As at
present advised, I think well of Gov.
Boies, and should be glad to support him
for second place. Ot course circumstan
ces may arise that would change my pres
Ben T. Cable, Eleventh district Gov.
Boies' successful leadership of the demo
cratic party in your state, the three vic
tories in succession, two ot which were
due in so large a measure to his personal
popularity and to the romarkable energy
and vigor of his campaign, justly ectit'es
him to one of the highest places in tLe
party's favor. By his faithful and un
tiring efforts he has almost established as
a fact that Iowa is democratic, and this
to us who remember so well the strength
of its republicanism only a few Tears ago
seems well nigh incredible. I do not be
lieve that the party will be unmindful of
bis great service or that it would pass by
unheeded the plea of his friends should
one be made in his behalf in the next
national convention. If a place should
be given Dim on the national ticket for
1892 it would, in my opinion, not only
strengthen the cause of democracy but it
would put Iowa in the column of demo
cratic mates among those which we cou'.d
regard as safely democratic
Wm M. Springer, Thirteenth district.
I desire to congratulate the Democrat
upon the result of the election in Iowa.
It places the state in the front ranks of
democratic states, and under proper con
ditions we may confidentially expect to
carry Iowa in the presidential content of
Owen Scott, Fourteenth district. In
1880 Iowa give a republican majority of
78 OCX). In 1891. Horace Boies, demo
crat, is re-elected by nearly 10.000 to be
governor of this heretofore stronghold of
republicanism. His first election was
considered by many to be a wonderful
freak. His second triumph over the
party of high taxation and legally en
forced morality shows that there is solid
foundation for a third victory for Gov.
Boies. In 1892 the victorious democracy
look to the illustrious Cleveland to head
the ticket For the second plane Boies
has the right ring. Cleveland and Boies
will sweep the country next year, Iowa
A. F. Busey, Fifteenth district Gov.
Boies made a great canvass one that
comn ands the admiration of good men
every where. If he is placed on the ticket
in 18( 2 the democrats of Illinois will give
him a cordial support, and many would
not feel bad if he were placed at the bead
of the ticket.
J. 11. Williams, Nineteenth district.
Iadm reyour governor very much: but
it is too soon to say who should be
placed on the rational ticket. If Cleve
land is renominated for first place I
should think Boies would be very formi
dable for second place.
Thi New York Evening Post, is a
most respectable independent paper. It
is the one whose destinies were guided
by William Cullen Bryant before his de
mise. It treats of the leaven of mug
wump sm in this way: Clarkson con
fessed some time ago that 'it cannot be
denied that the young men of the nation,
including the tons of the founders ct the
republican party, are identified wiih the
democ-alic party at the present time."
There is no other stale of which this re
mark ii so emphatically true as of Mas
sachusetts. The more plain spoken
among the republican newspaper of
Massachusetts admit that the drift of the
tide is igainsl their party. The Lowell
Citizen, published at the home of the re
publics n candidate for governor, says:
Allen is defeated because cf the leaven
of independence in political action which
is cutting men adrift from all party obli
gation, a leaven which cianot be sup
pressed by ridicule, the leaven of mug
wumpism. Bright minds have gone out
of the republican party in the itate to
direct ttie fortunes of what they are pleas
ed to call "a regenerated democracy.'"
The M.lford News dtc'ares that ,'ihe
average partisan throughout the Uni'ed
States 3RS little appreciation of the great
revolut ion in public sentiment amoDg the
thinking men of the Bay State, which has
been going on as rapidly of late je-irs as
the great revolu ion which made her the
leader in the anti-slavery moven.cn'. more
than a generation ago." How to stop
this revolution is the problem for the re
publicans, and the Citizen notifies the
party tianHgera that nei her scolding nor
scoffing will d.) it.

The Russian photographers have a
strange and ordinal way of punishing
those wiom they have photographed, and
yet who have failed to iay the bill for their
work. Outside of each photographing es-

most co ispicuous place. Into this frame
are put the pictures of all the tlelinqtu-t.ts

stead of putting the pictures in riht side
up in the usual dignified mauner, they are
inserted urwide down.

way, although they may hare no hliare in
