For Lieutenant Governor
The announcement is made through
the Decorah papers that Hon. W. H.
Klemme is a candidate for Lieutenant
Governor. In the republican party
in Iowa are two elements striving for
supremacy. One element is represent
ed by such mem as Herriott, Funk,
Healy, Brant, Martin, Gilbertson,
Klemme, and others in different parts
of the state, the other by Shaw, Mer
riam, Hubbard, Blythe, and every
corporation that would deal unjustly,
and by all who are their beneficiaries
directly or indirectly. Mr. Klemme
has represented his county for six
years in the house of representatives
of the state, and tried faithfully and
honestly to serve the people instead
of the corporate monopolies. The
question before the republican nomi
nating convention of the state will be
as to which shall control, the inter
ests of the people or of the corpora
tions. We fear that the machine has
such control in the state that the men
friendly to the people will be again
defeated in the nominating convent
ion. With such a man as Mr. Klem
me Lieutenant Governor, the corpor
ations would not have control of the
committees of the senate, if the peo
ple have friends representing their
interests in that body.
Hundreds of prominent republicans
in the state admit that the party
management is and has long been
controlled by men in league with those
who plunder the state treasury In
thousands of ways, but who realize
that to ask an investigation into
these matters would result in the ap
pointment of a committee of investi
gation which would white-wash the
the Dobsons, the Shaws and the Mer
riams to the joy of the Hubbards and
Blythes and the corporations they
