SEPTEMBER 14, 1905 Us Nobrasktx Indopondcxtf CIHHINS IN CONTROL IOWA'S EXECUTIVE OPPOSES DOM INATION BY RAILROADS Transportation Companies Reported to Have Given up Fight Against Him Because of Overwhelming Sentiment For Anti-pass Legislation WOMEN SUFFER NEEDLESS MISERY. Sioux City, la., Sept. 12. Iowa's gubernatorial contest is virtually at an end. The activity of President Roosevelt and others In behalf of rate legislation has enabled Governor Cummins to require absolute control of the situation by default. He an nounced his issues for the campaign in his first Chautauqua address two months ago, and since then has had the opposition in a hole in which it dare make no fight. Has No Opposition Governor La Follette's Chautauqua addresses in this state, those of Wil liam Jennings Bryan and other speak ers along the same line have developed public sentiment to a point where no newspaper has the temerity to wage war upon the governor's slogan. He demands an anti-pass law, reciprocity, and primary election law which" will terminate the reign of the railroad's political machine in packed caucuses and county conventions. The governor has delivered forty-two speeches dur ing the past season to Immense audi ences, which were attracted largely by loyalty to their local chautauqua. No one has been there to refute his argu ments and his seed has borne such fruit that the railroad representatives themselves admit that there will be no question that the forthcoming legisla ture will enact an anti-pass law. In deed, they say they will offer no op position to it. Blythe Put To Route So it haDDens that the standpat "ma chine" headed by J: W(. Blythe of Bur lington, general counsel, and chief po litical boss for the Hill system in Iowa, has been wholly dismantled. It will DroDOse no candidate for governor. The fight is going to Cummins by default. On the strength of one of the district leaders of the Blythe machine it may be postlvely stated that they will present no candidate. Governor Cummins may have a third, term if he wants it. He doesn't want it if ex Congressman Joe R. Lane, of Daven port, will accept the nomination, and the indications are tnat Lane can be prevailed upon to make the race. Cummins' second choice for governor will be "Webb" Byers of Harlan, former speaker of the house. But at ill events Cummins will hold undis puted sway over the next republican state convention. Perkins Down And Out One of the most striking features of the recent developments is the com plete elimination or ex-Congressman fienree D. Perkins, of Sioux City, from ' thP race. When his candidacy was launched it was with the idea that it would draw strength from the Cum min nnd standDat factions alike, be cause he had always occupied a mid dle ground that was offensive to neither side. While he had made a fw frtends. he had no enemies. But nn snnner had his candidacy became thoroughly started than the Cummins and arandnat editors got equally busy with ridicule. The Cummins papers denounced him as a pro-railroad edi rr and nnlltician. and the standpat W v t ' organs denounced him for sharing, very largely, the Cummins view o There are hundreds of thousands of women in America suffering from Femaie Diseases, endangering their lives by doing nothing. If they write to me I will give them the benefit of my extensive expe rience.S. B. Hartman, M. D. IN view of the great multitude of women suffering from some form of female disease and yet unable to find any cure, Dr. Hartman, the renowned gene cologist, has announced his willingness to direct the treatment of as many cases make application to him during the summer months without charge. The treatment will be conducted by correspondence. The medicines prescribed can be ob tained at all drug storcg. The Doctor will prescribe all medi cines, applications, hygienic and diet ary regulations necessary to complete a cure. Furthermore, all correspond ence will be held strictly confidential. This offer will hold good only during the summer months. Any woman can become a regular patient by sending a written statement of her age, condition of life, history and symptoms of her de rangements, and previous treatment. Pe-ru-na Erought Health and Happiness. Miss Nellie South, late of Manchester, Eng., writes from 86 Prince Arthur St., Montreal, Can., as follows : "Peruna has made a wonderful change in my life. It has brought me health and happiness. "Since my seventeenth year I have had female complaint and irregularities. My general health suffered, I had pains in my back and lower limbs, my eyes were dim, and I became morose and un reasonable. "Mother sought the advice of our family physician, who prescribed for me, but I grew no better. ' then read of Peruna and procured a bottle. That one bottle was worth more than all the doctor's medicine I had taken previously. " I cannot express my gratitude, Pe runa has been a great blessing to me." Nellie South. Miss Edna Moore, 46 Elm street, Buf falo, N. Y., Secretary East End Literary Association, writes : "I was a great (sufferer from systemic catarrh, was extremely nervous, could not sleep, fainted easily, was very irrita ble, had a confusion of the senses, and got tip in the morning feeling more tired than when I went to bed. " was very wretched, but upon tak- Inst Peruna I began to Improve, and after using the medicine four months, I felt like a new woman and was com pletely cured. "Edna Moore. The principal remedy which Dr. Hartman relies upon in curing catarrhal diseases of women is Peruna. Hun dreds of women sufferers find Peruna ft household necessity. RTHSS Angelina Grotten,805 St. TJrbaia 1YX street. Montreal, Can., writes: "Having heard Peruna praised, so highly induced me to try it for my cold, and pains in the groins with which I had been suffering for months. It took nearly three bot tles to cure me,but I consider that was but a short time, as I have often taken doctors' prescriptions for months be fore I got relief, "Angelina Grotton. As is well kaown, Dr. Hartman is the President of the Hartman Sanitarium, an institution which has a department devoted to the treatment of female dis eases. ; He is thus brought to see thousands of such cases every year, the most of whom re turn to their homes to be treated by correspond -ence. iiiiii''"''"t'f'"ff'?' T We have on file thousands of testi monials like the ones given here. We can give our (readers only a slight glimpse of the vast array of unsolicited endorsements ,we are constantly re ceiving. No other physician in : the Those wishing to become patients world has received such a volume of. should address Dr. S, B. Hartman, enthusiastic letters of thanks as Dr. Columbus, Ohio, - I Hartman for Peruta. . tariff and reciprocity. They mutually agreed in the end that he had been carrying water, on both shoulders and wouldn't do. The Perkins boom has collapsed in every sense of the word. Nothing more is heard of it. Trewin Squelched Standpatters, after going through their ranks with a fine comb, found but one man of gubernatoral timber. That was James Trewin of Cedar Rapids. Trewin is brilliant and popu lar. Likewise he is ambitious. He reached the point where he actually sought the nomination, and began building his fences. But at one fell swoop Major Rathbun, of Trewin's own county punctured the Trewin boom. In Rathbun's paper, the Marion Register, it was frankly and boldly asserted that Trewin wouldn't do. A long standing feud was back of it, but Rathbun was all powerful in the dis trict, and Trewin dropped out. Of the other standpat material, Col onel J. D. Palmer, railroad commis sioner, has been the only one to take his candidacy seriously. He had so long been regarded as a railroad poli tician that he couldn't carry three counties In the entire state. Equally rank partisanship eliminated Bernard Murphy, state printer, from considera tion. Thus, today, the standpatters have left the field to Cummins by sheer de fault. Circumstances have played into Cummin's hands, it , is true, but the railroad boss, Blythe, has no candi date to offer and will attempt to offer none. He would prefer Perkins to Cummins, but will make no fight against the latter, hoping thereby to minimize the blow when it does fall.
