Rippey Farm Festival October 9 and 10, 1907

Rippey, Iowa Farm Festival, October 2 and 3 1907 "Gov. Cummins was at his best Thursday. His address met the approval of his audience and the fact that the governor will be a candidate for U. S. senator before Republican primaries next spring, made the audience eager to catch every word from him. He is thoroughly a reformer in the common acceptance of the word and believes that we are not going after the corporations too fast His audience greeted his anti-corporation utterances with strong approval and he will prove a stronger candidate for U. S. senator in this section of the county than he did for governor." Jefferson Bee October 17, 1907 (Cummins served as Governor of Iowa between 1902 and 1908, becoming the first Iowa governor elected to three successive terms.)
