ex'remely valuable collection of photo
graphs from all part of the islands, which
were reproduced by means of the stere
optlcen last evening much to the delight
of a fair audience.
' The picture began with numerous view
In the Hawaiian Islands, on the Island of
Guam, and the remainder largely of the
Philippines. These gave a comprehenaive
Idea of tti cities of Manila and Ilo llo with
their varied styles of architecture, the
water front of Manila bay and the Paalg
river and the busy life prevailing In the
Americanised metropolis of the Islands.
Then there were shown the different type
of people of the islands and their dress,
the crude methods of cultivation, the val
uable but inaccessible timber resource of
the country, because of the great forest
being enounilH-red by an Impenetrable un
dergrowth of tropical vegetation. Tbe
methods of transportation were ahots-n by
the omnipresent caribou, or water buffalo,
and the Information was given that nearly
SO per cent of these animals have polished
within a few years from rinderpest.
The characteristic Indolence of the av-
erase Filipino was shown with suggestive

pictures. Ill jatratlons were also given of
the effort of the American government
to improve the sanitary conditions of the
islands, as well as to improve the road

DES MOINES. Ia., Feb. (.Special
Telegram..) Governor Cummins tonight
gave out a formal announcement of his
candidacy for a third term In which he
states that the paramount Issue politically
In Iowa is whether the corporations or the
people tiiall control. He states that he
would prefer to retire but that at the
Importuning of friends that it waa his duty
to stay in the fight and that It would be
cowardly to quit while the fight Is on, he
has decided to I e a candidate again. He
calls attention to the fact thiit the primary
election law now before the legislature is
a measure that In no way affects the man
agement of railroads or corporations and
yet the railroads are doing all they possibly
can to defeat that measure. He calls at
tention to the fact that the railroads are
trying to defest the bill prohibiting giving
free passes, a measure which he says ought
to elicit their warmest support. With these
statements the governor closes, stating that
the issue is squarely before the, people of
the state as to whether the corporations or
the people shall control, that he has done
everything in the four years of his term
that he could to curb the influence of the
corporations in politics, that he has never
left uncertain his position on the questions
and remains in the fight only with the hope
of firmly establishing the rights of the
people to control the state's affairs.
Lively Time In Senate.
In the senate late thia evening the Week's
resolution, sent over from the house and
endorsing the president's position on rate
legislation and urging the Iowa delegation
In congress to act along those lines, waa
brought up in its order on the calendar.
Senator Jamieson moved to amend by sub
stitution "The Dolliver-Hepburn bill." In
place of the number of the bill. Smith of
Mitchell moved to amend by making the
resolution read to endorse "a law conferring
powers on the Interstate Conimerce com
mission In accordance with the recom
mendaliona of President Roosevelt." Then
the most spirited and bitter debate of the
session ensued .in which considerable
temper waa engendered. Hepburn was de
fended by Jamieson and attacked by
Turner, who asserted Hepburn had kept on
his desk In Washington for nine years the
rate queation and only acted when forced
to. He asserted Hepburn had favored the
Nicarauguan ca a because he knew it
impracticable, mlth of Mitchell asserted
the people understood , what was meant by
the position of Roosevelt and not of Dolll
ver and Hepburn.
Molsberry moved to table the whole ques
tion, which was defeated by to Tl. Then
the senate adjourned and the question will
be the first business tomorrow morning.
A spirited time is expected. A desperate
effort will be made by both the friends and
enemies of the resolution. Nine senators
were absent today. All will be. present to
morrow. 4rreste4 for Stealing Grin.

could not direct the sheriff 1n his ofllcial
