Washington, Kel. -5.—"Senator Wil liam B. Allison will be retired l.v the republicans of Iowa and Governor Cummins elected to succeed him." This unqualified statement was made, yesterday ly C. L. Powell of lies Moines, Inwyer ot high standing In itlio slate of Iowa. "It is not the pleasantest news I could bring to Washington," continued Mr. Powell, "for we In Iowa fully ap preciate the worth of Senator Allison, and we are not disposed to overlook the years of service he has given the state. But the progressive element Is In control of the republican party of the state. The senator, unfortunately for himself, has allied himself with the standpat or reactionary element, and that element is down. "His opponent. Governor Cummins, leader of the progressive republicans, has done a grand work for Iowa. Vie .has fought the fight i£ which the rail roads and the corporations have been properly curbed, and it is the disposi tion of those now in power and control In the republican party of the state to reward him. They propose to do so by sending hiin to the United States senate. That Is all there Is to It. and do not believe there can be any other result front the contest now being waged there. "It Is possible that the present divi sion of the Iowa republicans into two wingsj might have been avoided If it had not been for Governor Shaw. You will remember that in 1900 Shaw «p poitned the successor of Senator Gear, if Shaw at that time had allied himself with the progressive wing of the party, and had appointed Mr. Cummins'to the senate, it is likely that the reactionary wing would then and there have ceased to exist. In that event the state re forms would have been carried out by a united party, and not by a gradually growing wing of it under the leader ship of Governor Cummins. "But Governor Shaw went to th£ reactionary wing for his senator and named Mr. Doiliver for the place, at the same time allying himself with that end of the party for good and all. That settled Shaw. It Is true he secured a plate in the cabinet, but Iowa was thru with him. as was amply shown when he came home not long ago to see if he could not get the Iowa delegation to support him, for the presidential nom ination in the republican national con vention. lie could, of course, get all the standpat crowd had to give him, but they had nothing he could use. The power to give him the delegation lay with the progressive wing, but that winjj could see nothing in him but an emissary of the reactionaries in na tional affairs trying to tie up another slate delegation under the favorite son game, away from Taft. But the progressive republicans of Iowa are all for Roosevelt and Taft and they would not stand for Shaw. "Shaw's final effort was' to try to get the Iowa delegation sent to the convention without instructions, but that was also blocked. It will be in structed, and the instructions will be for Taft. The only man who could get that delegation away from Taft Is Cummins. He could have it if he asked for it. But he wants to come to the senate and the republicans are going to send him. It is my informa tion also that the other states in the corn belt are as much for Taft as is Iowa. The same sentiment is known to exist thriiout Nebraska, and I am much inclined to believe that if the truth were known Illinois would be found quite as heartily for Taft as any state in the union. Of course, Speak er Taft will receive the complimentary vote of that state, but after that I am quite certain public sentiment will lead the delegation to add Its strength to that of the secretary of war.

ERROR IN ELECTION LAWS. Second Class Cities Cannot Elect Alder men in Even Numbered Years. Ida Grove, Feb. 24.—Judge Z. A.
