Democratic State Platform.
We, the democrats of Iowa, in con
vention assembled, rereby reaffirm the
principles of the democratic national
platform adopted at KansasCity, July
6,1900, and without surrendering our
convictions or abating our loyalty to
our national policifes, we believe this
campaign to beipartfCfclairly one that
should be confinetfrjto 'stagte: Issues.
"Resolved, That the fundamental
principle of democracy, 'equal rights
to all and special privileges to none,'
applies In full force to the subject of
taxation. The democratic party be
lieves that the burden of taxation
should be borne equally by all taxable
property. We pledge the members of
the general assembly to formulate
and urge the adoption of such a law
as will compel the burdens of taxation
to rest on corporate and individual
property alike, without favor or ex
emption of any interests.
"We demand economy in the admin
istration of state affairs, the repeal of
the mulct law, the enactment of a lo
cal option law, the abolition of offices
of state printer and state binder, and
the contracting for supplies for the
state "with the lowest responsible bid
der.
"We cordially invite all honest men
of the state to unite with us In secur
ing the enactment of these principles
Into law."
A ROMANTIC CAREER.
Speculator and Husband of Duchess
Ends Up as a Marine.
B. Ij. Dvryer, Former ChicnBO Million
aire, Anxlooa to Secure HI" Ile-
lease from tlie N»vjr la Order
to Begin Lite Over Ajtaln.
Edward L. Dwyer, once a millionaire
mine owner, protaottsr and bold specu
lator in wheat, who startled even Chi
cago by his daring, and who later mar
ried a duchess worth millions of dol
lars, sailed into the Brooklyn navy
yard the other day a marine on the
United States transport Calgoa
Dressed in his natty sailor suit, his
lace bronzed by the Philippine sun,
ihis muscles hardened by work, Dwyer
looked little like a dashing speculator
and husband of a duchess.
A
Dwyer has been in the service of the
United States since July 31, 1900, when
penniless, disinherited by his aged
•wife, tired of wandering, he went to
Harrisburg and enlisted in the marine
corps. The term of enlistment is three
years, but Dwyer has influences at
•work in the navy department, and
there is little doubt that his early dis
charge will be secured.
Dwyer first attracted attention in
1980, then a member of the Chicago
board of trade, by-purchasing 1,000,000
bushels of wheat for future delivery
[Without depositing margins. While in
•New York in 1894, representing west
ern mining interests, he met the
Duchess de Castelluocia, whose hus
band had died only a short while be
4ore, leaving her a fortune estimated
at $7,000,000. She was more than 40
years older than Dwyer, but he won
ber, and the two were married at Rock
Ridge, Fla., January 29, 1895.
The duchess died soon after the wed
(fling, leaving the bulk of her fortune
to her two children. Dwyer received
$10,000.
Dwyer then started on the road to
financial ruin through speculation
and in May, 1899, he found himself pen
niless. He filed a petition in bankrupt
cy in New York, with liabilities of
$252,055 and no visible assets. But
Dwyer within a year had organized a
company with a capital of $1,500,000
to. develop silver mines in Zacatecas,
Mexico. Apparently this scheme was
mot suocessful, and a year later he was
£gain penniless. It was then that he
enlisted and was assigned to service
in the Philippines.
While Dwyer was in the Philippines
he looked about him for favorable in
vestments and he thinks enterprise
there will open the way to fortune. It
is said that the bronzed marine will go
back to the islands immediately upon
receiving his discharge.

QUEER title for a description
of a foot race, "and yet a true
one,

zona and New Mexico. 1 have seen it
played many a time, but never more
energetically thaji at Zuni.
It must be borne in mind that even
in his games the southwest Indian is
religious. He is re.ligious in every
thing, and in nothing more so than
in that which affects the welfare of hife
body. He must be vigorous, healthy
and strong. He must cultivate all
his muscles in order to gain the favor
of "those above." There is a great
deal of. method and sense in this kind
HO IV
of religious training. In the old days
when the Pueblo Indians were sur
rounded by hostile Apaches and Nava
hols, who would sweep down, upon
them and slay, violate, steal, mutilate,
as their savage wills dictated, the
poor Pueblos were almost entirely at
their mercy. Hence they must culti
vate all the strength they possessed,
and develop more, in order to be able
to hold their own at least when an
ordinary fighting chance was given
them.
SHAMAtS WHO MAKES THE STICKS.
Then, too, they lived in a barren,
inhospitable country where every
good thing has to be wrested from the
goil by hard labor. What use for such
a life would individuals be who were
weak and puny? None whatever. So
from earliest babyhood everybody was
trained, as a religious duty, and to
look upon it as such, to make his body
strong, to develop his lungs, his pow
ers of endurance
This is the key, also, to much of the
so-called stoicism and indifference to
pate shown by an Indian. He must be
able to suffer and endure hardship, or
he crlild never live through the life
lliat nature )iud alloted lo him.

Henoe the great importance at
tached to games and dances and races
that cultivate the physical powers.
To tlii'iu, perh'aps more than anything
else, we owe the preservation of some
of the Indian races.
A race that can be seen almost any
public herald, or crier, from the
housetops that all the planting has
been done. The first races are the
ceremonial ones, but these are noth
I ing like as exciting as those that
take place when the planting is done
and the men are mostly at leisure.
The race consists in two sides kick
ing, or, more accurately, tossing,
with the toes two small sticks over
a prescribed course. Bach side has
I from three to six or even more par
ticipants, and each stick is so painted
or marked t,hat it can readily be dis
cerned. This stick is required to be
the size of the middle finger of the
sliainaii, or medicine man, who pre
pares it. The art of the game con
sists in so kicking the stick that oth
er members of the same side who ara
Dn ahead can immediately wriggle it
over the prescribed course. Each sid«
attends strictly to its own business,
and I have seen one side get so far
ahead of the other as to leave it from
a half a- mile to a mile behind.
A PROTEST FROM OVER THE SEA.
On the morning of the race the
participants of the two sides, stripped
to the skin and wearing colored
brecchclouts, one side of one color
and the other side of another, come
from the house of the shaman where
they have been staying to where the
race begins. A noisy, hustling crowd
outside awaits them, men, women
and children, some on foot, but most
on horscback, all gesticulating, talk
ing, pointing and most of them bet
ting. Everybody that has anything
bets. Each side has its adherent's
and they attest their faitl) by the
largeness of tlieir Wagers. There are
wagers on who will make the lougest
kick and who will win the Iftst kick,
who will seize the stick at the c)os§
of the course race and dash with it
to the pueblo into the central d»nce
plaza.
The wagers are all placed in front
of the old church, in a heap, and it
would surprise an old junk dealer to
see what a variety of things these
Indians can scrape up for this pur
pose.
Now the whole crowd crosses the
ereek to the beginning of the course.
JSvery racer has his hair done up in
a knot over liis forehead, und to this
knot an arrow point is tied, symbol
izing {.he direct flight and swiftness
pf thp jrroiy.
Here is qfie pf the shailrians on
horseback. Watch him! He is
sprinKlipg sacred (iieal on the traif
the racers are tp go pver, »n|J his lip$
move as if lie were muttering prayers.
Now the racers are placed- The tyvq
leaders are on the line, as it were,
while their aids are ten, 20 pr Rior§
feet ahead, in a waiting and expectr
ant position. Each leader places his
stick on his foot across the point of
junction of the toes with the foot.
Now the signal is given, and with a
quick and energetic toss-kick each
leader sends his stick ahead- In a
moment the tierce conilict begins-^*
not fierce in the sense of being rough'
ly cruel to each other, but fierce in
the intensity with which each man
strives to keep of his side progress
ing over the course. The spectators
yell, shout and scream directions to
the racers, while these bend all their
enbrgies to the object in view. The
dust is awful, the heat terrible,
Sweat pours down the bodies of the
racers and the dust adheres, so that
soon they are hideous-looking objects.
But perslstenly they watch and kick
that stick. To touch it with the handi
ijg forbidden. If it alights in a patch
pf cactus it must be gotten out with
the feet. Where the oourae is smooth
and even, good progress is made the
sand is not bad, for it allows the toes
to be wiggled under the stick,

pueblos where there are a number of
young men, or even boys, is the one
suggested by my title, and' called by
the Zunis Tikwahwi. These, how- I
ever, are extemporized raoes, but.
each year at Zuni there is a set sea
son in which the great Tikwahwi
takes place. There are two periods
of races, one when the Sun Cacique
announoes that the time for planting
the corn, etc., in the fields has ar-'
rived, and the other when the offi
cial announcement is made by the

the loose rocks und (lie lavn, and me
roclcy slopes of the'creek are reached1
then trouble begins. Sticks will get
lost now and again, as do golf balls,
and the shouting und yelling are
fierce until they are .found. Sortie^
times great fun is cnused when both
toss from each side will occasionally
land the sticks close together. Then.-,!:,
look out for a scrimmage! One side.,,,
looking for the blue stick and trying
to toss-kick it, the other for the red.
Over they go one over another, elbow-^
ing, shoving, panting, gnsping, grim
and determined. With a course of
six or seven miles it is an exhausting
race, and the excitement as the goal
is neared is intense. Finally the stlok
is kicked into the goal. In a moment
one of the winning side grabs for the
stick—the first time anyone has been
allowed to handle it since the race

REMAINS OF MONSTER BIRD.
Valtaablc DI«covery Made in Sontlicrn
Part of Argentine Republic—
Larger Than the Dodo.
Brief information of the. discovery
in Patagonia, or rather, of the south
ern part of the Argentine Republic,
of part of the remains of an extinct
bird that, in size, outrivals any of the
forms known to science, either living
or extinct, lias just, reached the chief
ornithologist of the Smithsonian in
stitution, who regards the discovery
as one of the first importance. The
details thus far received are to the
effect that a scientific party explor
ing along the eastern "foothills of'the
Andes rang® unearthed from the
strata of the tertiary age the skull of
what they at first took to be!a gigan
tic bird of prey, but on subsequent
examination they unearthed other
parts that caused them to change
their first view and reach the conclu
sion that the bird must have been a
water fowl. The eize of this exjtipct
bird, which the discoverers named the
"phorarachis," is, according to the
reports, something amazing, it having
been at least a fourth larger than the
"dodo" of Madagascar, a bird now ex
tinct, but which until the finding of
this Patagonlan monster held first
place for size in the list of birds liv
ing and extinct. The government or
nithologists are anxiously awaiting
further details of this interesting dis
covery. iff:
