IOWA LINED IP FOR CANNON
Sereral Already Committed to Hit
Candidacy for Speaker
FAIRBANKS WRITES CUMMINS
Senator Dolllver Rldlralee the Idea
There Will Be Friction Between
Himself anal Senator
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE3 MOINES, la., Nov. . (Special.)
That most of the Iowa membere of con
gress will line up for the re-election of
Speaker Cannon Is confidentially predicted
here. Captain Hull, the Beventh district
member and now the oldest of the Iowa
members. Is known to be committed to
the Cannon candidacy and while he declines
to discuss the matter those, who have been
trying to make headway In the Iowa dele
gation against Cannon say that Hull Is
firmly for Cannon. Another who Is com
mitted to Cannon is Congressman Kennedy
of the First district. The leaders of the
party In that district were for Cannon for
president and If there had been any show
at all for Cannon for the nomination at
Chicago they would have sent a Cannon
delegation. On the other hand three or
four of the Iowa members have Indicated
they would prefer some ot:ier than Cannon.
Woods and Dawson 'have said they would
be for Walter I. Smith. If he would be In
the race, but that seems Improbable and
with no Iowa candidate that delegation
would probably be nearly all for Cannon.
The Influences opposed to Cannon have te n
feeling out the matter In Iowa.
Fairbanks Consrratnlates Cummins.
Among the warm letters of congratula
tion received by Governor Cummins was
one from Vice President Fairbanks, who
Is a long time personal admirer of the Iowa
governor. Already In Washington It is
accepted that Cummins will soon be In
the senate, for they have sent to him
for his biography to go Into the Congres
sional directory. The governor has received
personal letters from a large number of
the members of the legislature Including
quite a number who were against him be
fore, acsurlng him of the certalnlty of his
being elected without opposition.
1 The governor is closing up all official
business as rapidly as possible and will dis
pose of everything remaining before the
time for the election of senator.
Dolllrcr Welcomes Hla Associate.
Senator Dolliver In an interview at Fort

I am glad that Governor Cummins has
been chosen by a majority of the repub
lican -electors to succeed the lamented Al
lison. His election, as I have said before,
will operate to heal all the republican
party's factional differences In Iowa. The
governor is an able man, and I have no
doubt will add additional luater to the fame
of Iowa in the national capital.
When asked whether he would co-operate
with Governor Cummins In his work In the
senate, and whether he would support the
governor's tariff reform views, the senator
I expert that both myself and the gov
ernor will be found co-operating In the
support of the administration of President
Taft. Further than this, I do not care to
A great many people believe that the gov

ing for myself, I'm getting too old for
