they read tho statement of a census

and other professions Surprising tho
Matomont may be, bu't not at all im

Tt was always disputed that ho was in

full liberty within tho institution. Ho
was released as sano in 1S'J4, and wns
then liable to trial on several indict

but he was not trifd and in 1898 the
indictments wcr0 dismissed on tho
ground that there was no possibility of
tonvitfting him.
Ho continued to go down lull, was
arrested at various times for drunk

a Broadway bllice building. Ho was

10, 1910.
A week or so ago pirt of tho German
licet was moved to Wilhelmshaven, and
this, according to news fiom Tho
Hague, has been tho final argument de-
tcrmining Holland that immediate steps
must bo taken in self-defense. Several
prominent politicians at The Hague,
supported by influential newspapers, are
persuading the Dutch government that
the neglected lortresses near Amster
dam, Rotterdam and along the Zuyder
Zee mu'st be reconstructed on n modern
It seems that a definite plan for the
reorganization of the coast defenses has
already been drawn up and a public in
timation of this important step may be
exposed any day.
As to the establishment. of the new
German base at Wilhelmshaven, is ex
plainable in truth in tho words of
Prince Henry of Prussia, in a lecture
HQine months ago. "Where," ho said,
"'will the future war be decided?" Put
ting his finger on tho chart at a point
midway between Heligoland and tho es
tuary f tho Elbe, Weser and Jade, ho
ejaculated: "Here!"
When, eighteen months ago, Kaiser
'Wrthelm announced ho would show more
reserve and make no controversial
speeches, the entire nation shrugged
their shoulders and disbelieved their
ruler. But today it is the silence of
the kaiser that is puzzling Eu'ropc. He
has kept his word with grim determina
tion. The pledgo was given, it will be re
called, after Conservatives and Liberals
alike had grown resfWe over the partic
ipation of tho crown in politics. For
twenty years tho emperor flung himself
into every controversy, believing his
action was approved by the nation, and

Musquakee Tribesmen Sepa-
1 rated by One of Pair
Leaving Tent
Bunch of Young Reds Grow
ing Up Who Disregard
All Form of Law
"Cannot sonotuiiig be done with the
Musquakee Indians of IowaJ" is the
tenor of a petition which is being pre
pared for presentation tothe Indian de
partment by the people of central Iown,
where tho Musquakees have their res
ervation. The effect of civilization on
tbo Indians of this tribe has been so
demoralizing that tho Musquakees are
apparently in greater need of reforma'
tion than was ever the Indian in his
most primitive state. Financially, they
are as poor as dogs; morally, they aro
simply bankrupt. Tho marriage cere
mony, even of the old primitive Indian
character, is seldom performed and tho
only divorce necessary is that tho dis
satisfied one simply walk out of the
cabin and take up his abode elsewhere.
If an Indian attempts to raise hogs,
shiftless fellow Indians will raid his pig
pen during his absence, claiming tfiat
the animals belong to them as much as
to the man who has fed and raised them.
Food Is Common Property
Ono Indian worked on the railroad
section and saved money with which
he built a little house 'near tho town.
His squaw learned to cook bread like
the whites. Sometimes a white 'woman
came to tho cabin to teach the squaw
something about cooking or sewing.
Within a few minute other arrival, tcji
or a dozen Indian women will silently
enter the house and take their heats on
the uoor. When the food is served
they gravely eomq forward and falling
upon it liko a swarm of locusts deour
everything in sight. Then they depait
as silently as they came. Tho food is
common property. It belongs to them
just 'as iniAsh us to tho woman of tho
There is growing up n bunch of you'ng
Indians who caio neither for God, man
nor tho devil. The fact of owning ev
erything in common has filled them with
the idea that they can do as they pleaso
and go where they take a notion. They
will not be controlled by the old people,
but hang around flic joints in the 'ooun
try wherever they arc allowed. They
absorb tho vice and lewdness of vile
white men and going back to the res
ervation, sow these seeds for a crop
which will some time make the country
sit up and take notice.
One of the crack baseball players, a
grafluate of a big Indian school, has
been several times married. His last
year's wife, now H years old, with a
baby is deserted for another. Girls not
yet of ago have been mairied four, fic
and six times. Their marriage vows
aro not as binding as are thoso of a
robin. Robins mate at least for a sea
son, some Musquakees cparatc in
twenty-four hours. A divorce consists
of picking up one's few belongings
and walking awny. The facts are that
marriages are not recognized as worth
recording u'ntil a child is born, and of
ten before the child is born the wife is
left to her mother's care, while the
young "buck" finds another girl or
steals away someone else s wife.
Children Belong to the Mother
The children always belong to the
mother and the man goes to live with
tho woman, not the woman w.th the
man. The young married folks livo with
the girl's parents. Sometimes the
voting husband is not liked by them
and they make it so uncomfortable
for him that he gets out. Another fel
low is invited over and given to under
stand that he will be welcome if lie
will stay.
But sometimes it happens that tho
old Indians aie not consulted. It may
come about in this way. After a suf
ficient number of friendly glances havo
been exchanged, the girl may happen
to walk alono in a secluded road, S'io
hears footsteps behind her and glanc
ing over her shoulder she sees her ad
mirer following. If she likes him not
she continues her walk and is not mo
lested. flirt if he has found favor m
her ejes, fcho st.irts running, feigning
fright The vounir "buck" takes at

to love and cherish until something doth
