ON THIS DAY in 1905, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “Hughes Declines to Run for Mayor.”  The article focused on the Republican Party at the time losing their mayoral candidate.  “The Republican Party is again without a candidate for mayor through the refusal to run of Charles E. Hughes, the man who is probing rascality in the life insurance companies,” the Eagle reported.
