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.

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.

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. ; j.m Carroll was arrested early last , night by Sergeant Vanoua and Ietecilve toll EUMATISM mi Rheumatism is usually worse in Winter because of the cold and damp ness and other changed conditions of the climate.
