Senator Young made the foliswing statement to the Iowa Even ing Press: "In a public manner, I desire to an nounce that I am a candidate for United States senator to succeed the late Senator Dolliver. In other words, I ask the general assembly' this Jan uary to ratify the appointment made by' Governor Carroll. The Dolliver term will expire March 4, 1913. I am under no ^pledge to Governor Carroll or to any one else in regard to my candidacy for Senator Dolliver's suc cession. If chosen by the vote of the general assembly as senator, I pledge myself to the service of the people in all honesty and sincerity. Every good cause shall have my assistance, every good measure shall have my vote. As I have heretofore announced I will be a builder rather than a critic or a des troyer. Some of tlie best 'reforms can be effected by constructive rather than destructive work. In Judging the quality of measure I shall not inquire its source. It shall not be my purpose to distract the republican party whose success in 1912 should be the aim of every republican. The republican party has demonstrated its capacity to do big and wise things. The party should be sustained. It should be ready for a great contest two years ahead. The democratic party never has. been able to satisf.' the country of Its fitness to rule. It is considered unsafe by a majority of the people. I invite all my friends throughout the state without futher delay to use their influence in my behalf." Lafayette Young.
