Kingman, Kan., July U. To the
Editor. Will you kindly state when
it was General James H. Weaver

the I Ion. John 1 1. Gear for the re
publican Humiliation for .governor
of Iowa, and give his career in seek

tive, since that timer
C. II. OunokN.
General Weaver never came with
in two votes of defeating the Hon.
John II. Gear for the nomination
for governor of Iowa. In 175
Weaver and Gear were both candi
dates for the republican state con
vention of Iowa, but they were not
the only candidates. There weie
five candidates John Russell, John
II. Gear, Robert Sinythe, W. H. Fair
field, and James H. Weaver. No
one had a majority, and Ex-governor
Kirkwood's name was sprung
when the time came to make the
nomination. Russell and Gear both
withdrew, and said their names
should not be presented against the
popular old Governor, Weaver,
Smythe and Fairfield remeined in
the field and the informal vote was:
Kirkwood. WIS; Weaver, 'JIKI; Smyth,
111; and Fairfield, IH. The formal
vote began, and so many votes
from the other candidates went to
Kirkwood that General Weaver's
friends moved to make the nomina
tion of Kirkwood unanimous.
General Weaver left the party in
the next year, and in ls induced
the yreenbaekers and democrats to
fus.e with him as their candidates
for congress. He was elected. In
ls", be I ore his term in congress ex
pired, Weaver was the greenback
labor candidate for president. Jn
lSki-he again because the green
hack candidate for congress in his
old district, the Sixth Iowa, lb
was defeated. In lssl and in lyM; ;is
a fusion candidate he was elected.
In lss he. was again the fusion
candidate for congress, but was de
feated. Since then he has not been
a candidate for office until now.
