Des Moines, Nov. 22.—Senator Lafe
Young, appointed by Gov. Carroll to
serve until the coming general as
sembly, today formally announced his
candidacy before the legislature to fill
the unexpired term of the late Senator
Dotliver. 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.

and 'that they could do me- no good.
friends of mine who had treated
with Dr. Strickler several years ago,

to him, which I did on Sept. 19, 1910.
After two months' treatment the

going home and taking up my work
which I have Wen unable to even look
after for the past two years.
I am surely glad I accepted my
friend's advice to eome to the doctor
and the treatments he gave me have
made me anew man.
