RUNS FROM A GOVERNORSHIP.oi

nee , Says He Won't Have It.
St. Paul , Aug. 25. Fleeing the coun

tion , John Lind , ex-congressman , ex
governor , ex-army ollicer , presidenl ot
Ihe hoard of regents of the slate uni
versity , lawyer and politician , has
thrown Minnesota democracy into a
turmoil. Never in the history of ( lie
stale has a party been so perplexed

home last month , "I will not be a can

"Under no condition ! " he echoed
"Utterly impossible ! " came wort
from far off Alaska.
And yet , with all these refusals
fully known , Ihe democratic stale con
volition which mel in Minneapolis 01
July 28 , nominated John Lind for gov
ernor and sent him word that he was-
lo head Ihe lickel in Ihe campaign o
Again comes Ihe answer "I cling to
my original decision and refuse. "
In every possible way Mr. Lind has
avoided the honor.
Just as persistently the democratic
leaders ' ' have said "You must. " Am
they have gone on believing lhat a
the last moment the tleelng man wouli
return and take up the party stand
ard. A month has passed and IMP
politicians are beginning to feel tha
John Lind meant what he said he
doesn't want the job.
A more peculiar situation neve
arose in Minnesota politics before
Under normal conditions the stale Is
republican. Members of lhat part }
have held all the elective oflices in
recent years , except thai of governor

John Lind was In congress from 188
to 1893. He was governor of Mlnne

ed to congress again In 1903. He wa :

John A. Johnson and every man n
the state democrat , republican , so
clallst and prohibitionist , revered th
mime of Johnson. Surely , thoj
thought , John Lind could be electet
to succeed him. When this condition
became known to Mr. Lind , he Issuet
a formal statement In which he de
dared he would not under any clr
ciimstances , become a candidate. Hi
"I mean It ! " Mr. Lind exclaimed
"Never again. "
Rut the "John Lind wave" begai

I Ihe again Issued a statement , refusing I
'to ' hocoi > .o a candidate and nnnounc-un
ng thai he was going away. Within
wonly-four hours ho was on a Not thof
rn Pacific train bound for Alaska.
) n July 25 n letter came to one of his
uost Intimate friends , with a request
hat It be read at a conference of par-
y leaders In Minneapolis. It said :
"It Is some time sluce 1 had occa
sion to call upon you tor a political
'a\or , but I am going to do so now
mil 1 sincerely hope that you will
ogard It as Iho most earnest call 1
jvor made. When I left some of the
lomocrats were still talking of noml-
allng me for governor , notwith
standing I could not possibly accept.
To nominate mo under the circum
stances would bo disastrous to the
mrty and very embarrassing to me.
Wo can win with a good man.
"Don't lot us throw away our good
liances. I cannot make a campaign
n my own behalf and I will not. hut
will be glad to contribute my best
jfforta to the success of the party
loiuliiee. I am willing to do anything ,
sacrifice anything for the cause of
the success of our party , but cannot
nako a campaign. I have a nervous
Iread of the very thought of holding
in olllco again. I simply cannot ac-
opt. Now I hope you will spare no
fforl to save mo the
- necessity of bo
ng compelled to decline the nomina
tion were the cotnoiitlon to name mo. "
Mr. Lind went further. He dug up a
law passed by a recent Minnesota log-
slatuio , which prohibited any logout
) f the state university from holding
.my other stale office during the time
for which he had boon elected regent.
"That law's iinconstllulional ! " dem
ocratic lawyers declared almost In the
same breath. "The constitution gives
every man an equal right and a leg
islature cannot deprive him of It. "
Attorney General George T. Simp
son , a republican , intimated that he
would uphold such a decision. And
still the tide swept on toward Lind.
By this time Mr. Lind was In Washing
ton and rapidly making for Alaska.
Before sailing , however , he sent the
following telegram lo his law partner
In Minneapolis :
"Kindly advise Ihe convention and
before adjournment if possible , thai I
will nol accepl Ihe nomination. "
The he sailed for Alaska. Ho is
back in the United Stales now , bul
says he will not return to Minnesota
until September. While the demo
crats of his state are soiling up nights
in conference , Mr. Lind is enjoying the
cool breezes on the Pacific coast and
says he will not
permit his name to go
on the ticket. By August 31 the list
oi nominees must be filed with the
secretary of stale. Il is believed by
many that his name will be" certified
as thai of the
' regular nominee for gov
"I will not serve If elected , " Mr.
Lind has said. " '
"Don't put my name
on that ticket. "
And so it stands.
ROYAL SLAVES OF EUROPE.
Louise of Belgium Writes of the Do
ing of Nobility.
Paris , Aug. 2. ) . Princess Louise of
Belgium has written an article on
"The Sorrows of Being Born Royal. "
She is the eldest daughter of the lale
King Leopold * of Belgium and married
her cousin , Prince Philip of Saxo-Co-
burg in 1875. They resided at the
court of Vienna.
After thirty ye.ars of married life ,
during which her husband treated her
with increasing cruelty , she ran away
with a young officer. She was caught
and incarcerated in an asylum , al
though clearly sane. Her husband oh-
tained a divorce and she was released
on hard conditions.
In her slory she tells some things
about royal domesticity , prefacing the
account with a slatement that she be
lieved Archduke John Salvator of
Auslria , her cousin , who disappeared
under Ihe name of John Orlh , Is slill
alive after telling of his renunciation
of his pretensions to Ihe throne and
leaving the country. She says :
"His departure seemed like the go
Ing out of Ihe sun from our sepulchral
court. My husband's conduct to me
quickly became more brutal In the
absence of John , whom he feared
He abandoned himself to drink. His
depraved propensities revealed themselves
solves in all their nakedness. Man }
a lime In wild rage he lore my clothes
from me and inflicted cruel injuric !
upon me. When 1 first atlemplcd lo
escape from his brutalities he brought
mo hack and left me helpless and
fainting , tied to the bed. At last
goaded to madness. I ran away from
him with the assistance of a young
officer , who was devoted to me. The
world knows the sad story of my ex
perlonces alter thai.
"And yet Prince Philip of Saxe-Co
burg was considered an ornament to
the court of Vienna , while I am no\\
excluded from it.
"The Archduchess Louise had beer
tied in marriage to Frederick Angus
tus of Saxony , now king of thai coun
try. She was a bright , volatile , sen
sitive creature , and such companion
ship was death to her.
"In 1902 she ran away with hexi
children's tulor. Andre Glion. a dap
per liltlo Belgian , not because slit
loved him , but because ho was the
only gentle civilized human being she
was allowed to see. The princes she
met were equal mixlnres of vice am
slnpldiiy. She has since married ni
Italian singer , Enrico Toselli.
"Her brother , the Archduke Leopold
Salvator , of very similar temperament
to herself , was also chafing under the
conventions of royalty. He decided
to run away at the same time as his
sister , and took with him a pretty lit
tie actress , Wllhelmlna Adamovlcs
whom ho married. I miisl say that
Leopold was a fickle and unreasonable
fellow. He made his wlfn Join a col
ony of eccentrics living without nn >
clothes and feeding on vegetables , a ?
they supposed Adam and Eve lived tl
Betatiso his wife could not stand this
ho abandoned her He has now be n
come a private cltUen in Switzerland
under the name of Leopold Wotlllng.
, "During my residence at the court
of Vienna many sordid miseries of
to > al life behind the scones woio revealed -
voaled to mo. The reigning grand
hike of Hesse , grandson of Queen
Victoria , spout most of Ills tlmo UnitIng -
Ing openwork stockings and doing
mbroldery. His wife , n handsome
mil \ Igorotis woman , loft him for
his loason and has since mart led the
; raud duke Cyril of Russia.
"Many secret acts of kings and
lirlnces can only bo hinted at. Strange
forms of madness taint many royal
families. Perhaps the most repulsive
monster In all the European royal cir
cle was the Grand Duke Serglus of
Russia. Ho habitually beat his beauti
ful wife , yet she continued to stand
between him and death by accom-
imnylng him everywhere , for the nihil
ists hated him worse than any man
In Russia , bill they would not kill him
while his wife was with him. They
! iad more chivalry limn Serglus. At
last one day Ihey caught him without
tier and thai was Iho end.
"Perhaps the most Innocent royal
prank thai came under my notice was
when the young Duke of Braganzn of
the dethroned Portuguese royal family
slopped a humble funeral procession
to Jump his horse over the collln.
"One thing more 1 will add thai is
beyond question the culmlnallng sorrow
row of royal life. When I wished

GAYNOR A SECOND TILDEN.
New York Democrats Are Looking to
New York , Airj. 2" . Tammany men
returning this afternoon from the
meeting of tno state committee at
Saratoga are nmly convinced that
Mayor Gaynor will no nominated tu
nuike the race foi- governor of New
Y.irk this fall. But they are not cer
tain that he will accept , and in the
event he declines the nomination they
anticipate that lie will name the can-
T'he Tammany nmn say lhat , while
Ihe upstate loaders are all nursing
booms and pushing Ihe candidacy of
favorite sons , they admit privately
that Mayor Gaynor really monopolizes
the field. The best informed demo
crats regard his nomination as a cer
"Mayor Gaynor , " said a Tain many
man who talked with everybody in at
tendance at the meeting of the state
committee , "will he nominated by ac
clamation. Even if the bosses were
disposed lo slop the movement they
could not do SQ.
ccHi "When the convention disposes of
the preliminary business in Rochester
oi September 29 and 30 and the time
comes to nominate candidates , take it
as ; a prophecy that about half the men
in the hall will rise up and begin to
shout the name of Gaynor. No other
name will he mentioned. No other
candidate will be foolish enough to
try to buck against the sentiment that
will be apparent.
"Mayor Gaynor was really the logi
cal choice before he was shot. His
serious injury , his game struggle , his
suffering , in the hospital , have all
served ( to fan into flame the popularity
thai has been smoldering ever since
his election. The feeling of the people
ple toward Mayor Gaynor Is reflected
In Ihe altitude of the New York press.
The republican papers which opposed
him most bitterly were the most sin
cere ( in their tribules lo his characler
and ability the day after the shooting.
"In the light of what has happened
Mayor Gaynor is the most distinguish
ed American after Theodore Reese
velt. No sensible democrat refuses
to give Theodore Roosevelt his due as
being the most popular man of his
lime among the masses.
"Now , here Is Tammany's hope.
Tammany knows Gaynor will be nomi
nated. Tammany hopes Gaynor will
refuse. Then It will be necessary to
reconvene the convenllon for Ihe pur
pose of accepllng his declinalion.
"There is a precedent for this in
the case of John Royd Thacher , who
declined to run after he was nomi
nated. The convention reassembled
and nominated David Dennett Hill.
Remember that Mayor Gaynor has
pledged himself to servo the people of
New York City four years as mayor.
He could put his declination of the
nomination on the high ground of the
fulfillment of a solemn promise to a
community of live million people.
"Naturally , should Mayor Gaynor be
nominated and should he refuse to
run , ho would be given the privilege
of naming the candidate. Ho would
be the dictator of the democratic par
ty of the state of Now York.
"Should Mayor Gaynor sacrifice
what looks like a certainty of being
Ihe governor of New York for Iho
purpose of remaining In New York
City and carrying out his common of
sense policies he would become the
Tilden of his party.
"The road to Iho while house would
be open , because , with a united party
behind him , he would bo equipped to
make a winning race against even
such a man as Roosevelt. The third
term Idea would hurt Roosevelt in a ft
campaign against a man of Mayor
"There Is the situation. You will
find the march of events leading Inevitably - .
evitably to Mayor Gaynor's nomlna- .
tlon at Rochester. Wherever Mayor
Gaynor goes to convalesce from his InJury -
Jury that spot will bo the mecca of
the democrats of this state. Just as
Tilden s Gramen } park homo was the
moiia of the democrats of Ins time "
