    Pos i t i on of the Governor Strength-

    ened ly the (racionn Hninni-

    Special to The .Journal. Des Moines, lown, April 19.Gossip in so-

    cial circles has it that Mrs. A. B. Cum-mins, wife ot the governor, achieved a com-plete conquest of the hearts of the ladies or the members of the legislature, in the course of the session just ended. It is not putting the case too strongly to say Mrs. Cummins has these members of the fair sex hypno-tised. Here in Des Moines it is all the talk. It is recorded that J.ohn. Henry Oear used to fcay of Mrs. Cummins, that she was his most dangerous opponent for United States sen-ator.

    The distinguished senator's dictum is borne , out by whnt has been happening here in.tho last three months nnd it is safe to say that if Governor Cummins needed to be strength-ened in order to insure himself another term, his wife has been able to do it.

    What has so charmed the ladies who have gathered here from various points Is the series of receptions that were held regularly during the session by Mrs. Cummins. Her home was thrown open for these and in the course of the session the wife of every mem-ber who was here was invited to receive with Mrs. Cummins. This, in connection with many other acts. _of hospitality, on her part, haa had its inevitable effect. ,,,,

    Moreover,, the Indies of Des .Moines, who thronged in great numbers, to the reception, were greatly pleased with them and altogether It is difficult to see how the governor's wife could have achieved moro of a social triumph than she has, though in an unobtrusive way.

    The gossips say that the Cummins family Is spending less on receptions and that sort of thing than the Shaws used to. And while the Shaws were lavish In expenditures, they did not come up to Governor Drake, who, it is said, expended more money for public functions during his administration than has been expended by any otner governor.
