It sounds odd to hear him stop his glowing remarks about heaven to suy: "Here comei Mrs. Smith and she is wearing the same hat and coat she wore last win ter," but it may cure his congregatioi of the bad habit. B. O. Aylesworth htis declined the nomination for governor at the hands of the prohibitionists. He says: The recent death of Chancellor G. T. Carpenter, the head of Drake university from the beginning, whose work has made the university what it is, leaves an imperative duty upon me .which cannot shirk and be true to obligations given years ngo. In addition to this is the serious sickness of Dr. Ai I. Hobbs, the dean of the bible college, which al this juncture forces double embarrassment into the situation. It is absolutely necessary that I assume new and broader relations to the university at this time, or bear the responsibility of its serious impairment. The Nevada Representative tells how Capt. Hull was hurt down near ,Des Moines: On the way from the station at Crocker to visit his farm in that vicinity, the mustang pony he was driving suddenly gave a leap to one side which threw Capt. Hull with violence to the ground. He struck on his left shoulder, breaking the collar bone, and the wheels of the cart came down on dim in such a manner as to inflict severe bruises. A warrant has been sworn out for the arrest of C. C.-Cory, superintendent of the Girls' Industrial school atMitchell- ville, charging him with assault and battery. Aside from the warrant sworn out, Eli Newton, father of the 18- year-old girl, who, it is alleged, was ihe victim of Superintendent Cory's wrath, has filed an affidavit in the court, stating that Cory on the 26th day of July, did beat and bruise his daughter, who was then an inmate of that institution, with a heavy leather strap, causing her arms and shoulders to turn Dlack and blue and from the effects of which assault and battery the girl has suffered great pain and personal in- ury. ______________ GOV. BOIES WON'T HAVE IT. BCe Positively Declines to Be a Candidate for Governor Again—Ills Official Suy So for It. The following letter by Gov. Boies was made public Friday: STATE OF IOWA, EXECUTIVE OFFICE, DES MOINES, Aug. 2, 1893.—Chas. D. Mullen, Chairman Democratic State Central Committee, Fail-field Iowa— Dear Sir: My name has been so often mentioned in connection with the nomination by the democratic party of this state for governor in the approaching campaign, and also as candidate for senator, that I am compelled to believe ;hat anything less than a formal declaration of my views will be taken as tacit lonsent on my part to such use and to all intents and purposes place me be- 'ore the party as a candidate for one or the other of those positions. I am not unmindful of the honor this mention of my name in connection with .hose exalted offices confers and especially am I grateful for the approval of my course as governor implied in the suggestion that the unusual distinction of an offer for a nomination for a third erm as governor should be tendered me. For all this I am sincerely grate- ul and shall ever continue to be. Still, with my views of the effect of such a course upon the future welfare >f the party that has been more than oyal to me, I should be false to my own convictions of duty if I did not speak 'rankly now. I am conscientiously opposed to third terms in an office so important as that >f governor of a great state and in this 'iew the unbroken precedents of all (olitical parties in our state teach that my views are in substantial accord vith those of the masses of all our people. To ignore these precedents and vio- ate this almost universal sentiment would, in my judgment, be seriously letrimental to the best interests of the lemooratic paaty. I cannot, therefore, even tacitly consent to the further use of my name in connection with this office. Second—I believe the party should stand squarely by the position it has iaken in favor of the election of United States senator by direct vote of the people. That it should re-affirm its posi- ion on this subject by proper resolu- ion incorporated in its platform of n-inciple. But I do not believe it should nominate a candidate for that office. The direct tendency of such act would be to force to the front the dis- ussion of national issues, which, however important in an election that could o any considerable extent influence iheir settlement, are, in my judgment, of vastly less importance to the people of Iowa in the coming campaign than state issues. We must again deal with .he question of the continuance of our H'Ohibitory law, the principal result of vhich, aa determined by many years of experience, is an unrestrained and unregulated traffic in intoxicating liquors a nearly every city in the state, and we must also deal with a question ol constantly growing importance, the control and management of our state institutions. It is high time the people of loWa determine whether or not these magnificent monuments of the benevolence of a great state bo controlled in the interest of the political party that happens to bo in the as- cendency or shall forever be taken out of politics, placed upon a business basis and put under the charge of a nonpartisan business board, capable of humanely conducting their management and judiciously disbursing the vast sums of money required for their support, amounting'now, in round numbers, to two-thirds of all the revenues of the state. Because of the greater importance of these issues and of my own conviction that a nomination for senator would lessen our ability to bring them prominently before the people, I cannot consent to the use of my name in connection with such nomination. I am most respectfully yours, HORACE BOIES. CONSTANT headaches are often due to an error of refraction that can be corrected by the proper adjustment of perfectly-made lenses. See Dr. Harris at F. W.
