An Iowa Soldier Boy Writes from the Philippines. CHARGES AOAlNSr OUR SOLDIERS. John O. 8leven«o» of the Fifty-First Iowa Oltproveg the Assertions of The "Antl Imperialist" W,.lch is Being Circulated by the low* Ueniocratio State Centra Committee—Something Abont Candidate White's Political Patt, The Democratic state central com mittee has begun the circulation In Iowa of The Anti-Imperialist, the mag azine published by Edward Atkinson for the avowed purpose of opposition to "tropical expansion and to the present criminal aggression in the Philippine islands." The Issue of this maga gine which the Democratic committee is sending out by the thousands contains many pages of extracts from the New York mugwump Post giving alleged extracts from letters from sol- in the Philippines charging cruel• In the treatment of the prisoners describing the war now being car- on there as brutal. It also gives tjust enough of the correspondence with Agulnaldo to lead to the luferenct that he was given to understand that the United States would back him up In his attempts to establish a govern ment of his own In the Islands. The magazine does not print the correspondence had between the state department and our foreign representatives in which they were given plainly to understand that they were not authorized to make Agulualdo any prom ises whatever. This part of the corre spondcnce would not be In accordance with the purpose of The Anti-Imperialist and is of course suppressed. As to the other charges made by Atkinson we are able to present an answer in the language of an Iowa soldier who has just written to his parents in this state In regard to the rumors of such charges which have reached the boys In the trenches. The letter we quote was written by John O, Stevenson to his father, Rev. J. O. Stevenson of Waterloo, la. Young Stevenson was a senior in Tabor college at the outbreak of the war, and when the call for volunteers came.he left his books and joined company L, Fifty-first' Iowa. He has participated in all the battles in which that regiment has been engaged and has viewed the situation calmly and impartially. His letter was written Sept. 1, and was received last week. The letter was not written with a view to publication, uor with any idea that it would have any bearing upon political subjects. For that reason it is especially interesting at this time as showing an Iowa soldier boy's views ,of some of the stories that are being peddled throughout the state by the Edward Atkinson-Fred White crowd. The following are extracts from the letter: Filipino* Not Abused. "I suppose you have heard all sorts if reports concerning the treatment if the Filipinos, the actions of Amerian soldiers,, the mistakes, as they •e called, of Otis, etc. In regard our treatment of Filipinos, I want say that never in my presence has prisoner been abused. On the con•y, the fellows give them cigarettes more gruel than they probably saw before, and even set them Some of the prisoners could not Ired to escape. They lie around quarters, carry water and split iboo for fire wood. In the prisons anila and Cavlte they have all Ice, salmon, canned meat and |cco they can use. Shower baths in some of the prisons and in all jty of water is furnished for wash- Iboth body and clothing. Treacherous Filipinos. 'rom what we hear the people of states also have thought at times we killed every one that fell into hands. There are lots of mean ipinos and they do many mean Ings. Often times we have caught changing their clothing for white Amigo' clothes. As a people they are treacherous. After- some of the tights we would find- among the dead a native we had fed, well paid and treated like one of ourselves. Now some of the boys, when a comrade is killed or particularly when the white flag trick is used, or some one is stabbed in a treacherous manner, would swear all sorts of revenge and that they would kill every 'nigger' they met, but when a Filipino is captured they are the first to offer them cigarillos. There is a hospital for wounded Insurgents at Manila. It is a large place and has been filled to the limit. This shows that the Filipinos are not all killed when taken. Cl Stories of Filipino Officer*. "Part of the Filipinos know that ,/liey will be well treated, but part of them are so frightened by the stories pf American atrocities that their offl- l cers tell them that they are amazed "when we do not string them up or cut c their throats. Coming up from San g Fernando on the advance we struggled n through swamps, creeks and reviues jthat were well nigh impassible and in *,oue almost inaccessible place we came upon a couple of families. They crouched, crawled in the water, sup- t plicated, fawned and kissed our hands. i I never saw such abject fear. It made us sick as we passed on. 1 Filipinos Kttklly Panio-Striokeii. 1 "Another thing some of the newspapers bint is that it is no wonder we can defeat the Filipinos with our Gat- lings, cannon, etc., while they have no such modern appliances. But many times the Filipinos had opportunities of fighting us three or four to one. All the fighting at first was done by us with the antiquated Springfield against the modern Mauser, and the Filipinos could shoot to kill while keeping out of range of our guns. Moreover many times the firing line moved on far ahead of the artillery, which could not be dragged through the rice fields and •swamps. So the Filipino has no ex' cuse for not licking the American at ieoine point in the game, though he has {|not done it. They cannot stand a I F charge or a death dealing tire. They become panic-stricken «unl abandou trenches and fortifications that would fee impregnable held by. us. Thelt } trenches at Columplt and HI along to JJalolos ought never t* have been TM3B BPPDR MS MOINES; AL&QNA, IPWA, WlBgggBAY, .NgYggJBBjt 1, 1309. taken without very great lots of life The fighting nerve of our men as a rule was superb and It was this that gave us the victory. Belleven In Kapanslon. "Do I believe in expansion, or at least In the retention of these islands? I believe that in dollars and cents they will be a good Investment It is a good coaling station And the key to China and the Yellow sea. It may appears hard for some of the boys TO be killed, but men are killed In factories, in trades and in business at home. We are the pioneers here who are opening up the great west to greater manufacturing, trade and shipping. We cannot help expanding. It Is the simple destiny of the rise and fall of nations. We are forced to follow our fate and mold It for the best. Objevi untie Filipino Leader*. "Are the Filipinos fighting for liberty? The Filipino general and the leaders are simply fighting for a good thing. I would fight, too, for a chance at Manila and the receipt of customs that any government will get in the islands. The rank and file of the Filipinos are held In abject terror by their leaders and believe their stories that the Americans will kill them all. That la the reason they support Aguinaldo in his insurrection." GONE TO SAN FKANCISCO. G»v. Shaw Will Welcome the Fifty-First on Its Ret.iirn from the Philippine*. Last Thursday morning Governor and Mrs. Shaw left for San Francisco to join with the other Iowa people In extending to the returning heroes of the Fifty-first Iowa volunteers the welcome which all lowii voices. It was not definitely known until early lust week when the transport Senator which In bringing the boys home, might be expected to arrive. When it was determined that the Senator would reach our shores about Oct. 23, the governor at once made arrangements to start In order that he might be in San Francisco on that date. To do this, it was necessary to cancel a few dates that had been made for him and to disappoint many places which had requested that the governor visit them. It will not be possible for the present at least, for the committee to make any more assignments for tiim, but, if the Senator makes the time as expected, it will probably happen that Governor Shaw will reach lome in time to wind up the campaign. The people of Iowa will regret that joveruor Shaw was compelled to leave .he state at this period in the campaign, but they will be in hearty accord with his wish to bi> among the first to extend to the soldier boys of whom the whole state is proud, the greeting which goes out to them from ivery heart, in Iowa. Since the open- ng of the campaign and for several weeks before the formal opening Gov- sruor Shaw has been on the stump and ias made two speeches per day a good part of the time. He is one of he ablest campaigners and most convincing advocates of sound money in the United States. His work in the :ampaign lias borne good fruit and Jowa people will remember his forcible arguments and unanswerable logic by giving him and the Republican ticket a rousing majority at the polls. ORGANIZE FOK VICTORY. Results Depend Entirely Upon the Success of Efforts to Get tlie Vote Out. Chairman Weaver has secured one if the strongest organizations of the lepublicniiH of the state that has been md hi years and from now to the end of the cami.aign every effort will be made to sec that the full Republican 'ote is polled. To do this will require he co-operation of the Republican workers In every precinct aud to them hah'inan Weaver especially appeals. ?he reports that have been received 'rom all parts of the state are very eu- ••ouraging and the various county Chairmen report that there are no de- ections from the rank of the Republi- 'ans in their counties. They are all urged not to stop with the knowledge hat the people are going to vote right, ut to see that they vote. That is the mportant feature now and it is the jne that Chairman Weaver is especial- y emphasizing. If the full Republican ote is polled on the 7th day of No- ember there is no reaslon for the ma- ority for Governor Shaw and the en- Ire Republican ticket falling below )0,000. If the plan which Chairman Weaver has arranged is carried out as t should be and the Republicans in ach precinct do their duty in getting he vote out the result will be such a ebuke to Pred White and the sup- iorters of Atkinson, Aguinaldo, et al.. hat they will transfer the scene of heir labors to some more fertile field ban the loyal state of Iowa. The demand for speakers has never jeen so great as during this campaign and the committee have had their ands full in meeting the requests. Fred White Oncu u Jtepubllcwn. Hon. John Morrison of Hedrlck, in fred White's home county, has called ittention to the fact that the present democratic candidate for governor of owa was at one time a Republican, md he tells in an interesting and care- ully considered manner the reasons or his leaving that party. It's an old story, but is of especial mportance at this time when Fred White is doing his utmost to create a ace feeling against the Republican party. It was back in 1874 or 1875, and at that time, Mr. Morrison says: 'Some of our Republicans were talking if nominating him (White) for the louse of the General Assembly, and to help him had him put on the Fourth if July program at Sigourney to nswer to the sentiment of 'Our Public Schools.'" Mr. Morrison charges that in his peecb Mr. White attacked the Oatho- ics In the most bitter manner imaginable, closing his remarks with the tatement that "their system of re- igion is opposed to a republican form f government and therefore they are a dangerous element In the community." "Uncle Jack" Morrison knows what te is talking about when be makes his statement in regard to Fred White's speech, for he spoke from the ame platform op that occasion as did ilgo the Rev. Father Nugent, now of )es Mollies. Of the effects of that speech, Mr. Morrison says: "The Republicans dropped Fred White like a 'hot brick' aud bis voice wa.8 gllent for a few irs. Then be broke out for Weaver and the greenback erase." TO BECOME A SPRINTER. VALUABLE HINTS ON RUNNING BY AN EXPERt. • Young Man Has Handled Hlm- MU Until He I* the Most Talked of Amateur Athlete. Pobably the most talked of athlete In amateur and collegiate athletic circles just now is Alvin 0. Kraenzleln of th£ University of Pennsylvania, who this spring made a new world's record in the running broad jump. Mr. Kraenzlein is generally admitted to be the greatest all round track athlete In this country. Up to a year ago he was known only as a phenomenal hurdler, holding world's records for both the high and low hurdles. Mr. Kraenzlein has this to ^say regarding his wonderful powers as an athlete: "From the time when I was a very small youngster I was very fond of athletic sports of all kinds, but at that time there were plenty of boys that could beat me in short and long distance running. I determined to make a study of running, and become the fastest runner in the school. In the first place I read a number of hints given by trainers, and these I adopted as much as was possible. To begin with, I was always careful to take care of myself, and I never ruined my lungs with tobacco or my stomach with coffee every morning. "My training at thie time was very simple, but I think very effective. Each morning and night I used to go through the setting up exercises that are used at West Point, which almost every one knows and which so very few practice. Personally, I believe these exercises to be the best kind of a home gymnasium tt is possible to have, and some of my records, perhaps, may be directly attributed to them. Gradually I kept on running and practicing, until I was acknowledged the fastest runner in the school, and I am sure that I felt more proud of this distinction than I have over any of my later records. "If you are going to quote me as to my methods I won't know where to begin, but first of aH I would advise any young boy to get his body and mind so that they will work together at all times. By this I mean that the true runner or jumper depends upon ils head quite as much as his legs for the fastest runner when rattled Is jeaten before the race begins. Another thing, you want to cultivate confidence in your abilities. Go into the race with the idea of winning, and if you lose, have it because the other man could run faster, and, what is more, admit It. "This same admission may be up to lim in the future, and you will enjoy rour victory more because you had to work and wait for it. Begin your )ractlclng by light running, allo-wing jlenty of development for your lungs. Don't strain yourself at the start, but try and build up a physique and acquire a method of running that can >e relied upon when you are in a race. Jeep your stomach In good order, tfore races are lost from a bad stomach than poor legs. Add to this good American sand and faithful and conscientious practice and you may find yourself a world's champion some day."—New York Herald. New Use For Small Soya. One of tho problems of past years was to find a use for small boys. Like lie poor, they are always with us; seldom useful, never very ornamental, >rone to mischief when they are not oo lazy for exertion of any kind. Their rue use has been discovered recently —nature intends them to be sent on ne&sages to far countries. Another small boy left England recently on a Ittle journey. He was commissioned >y one of the tourist agents to carry a fine dog to the sultan of Turkey. Doubtless the youth will be interviewed on his return and will tell the true 'acts about the Armenian question md the troubles in Macedonia. At the ianie time the people who sent the dog seem to forget that eastern potentates are accustomed to receive their gifts ram people of distinction. The en- 'oys who bring Abdul Hamid tribute of bijouterie and' vertu are always peo-' pie of certain repute. The pasha who sent his master a gift by one of hi» ackeys would probably be severely snubbed at Yildiz kiosk; farther east he would stand an. excellent chance of paying the penalty of discourtesy with bis liberty, if not with his life. Matthew Arnold. Matthew Arnold I met very often in its later years. I met him first at the lospitablc home of the late Dean Staney, under the shadow of Westminster Abbey. I had written a chapter of. iterary history in which I toad described Matthew Arnold as "a minia- ure Goethe." I thought then, and I till think, that no higher praise could be given to a man of our time. I am ure Arnold, If he had ever read it, >erfectly understood njy criticism In hat sense. But dear Dean Stanley was a humorist who loved his good- natured joke, and presented me to Matthew Stanley in a very unceremonious fashion: "Look here, Matt, here is the man who says you are nothing but a minia- ure Goethe!" "If I were only anything like that!" Arnold answered, with his sweet McCarthy. Hard to Stubb— I see where President Mc- fiuley has purchased a coach. ?enn— That so?

Master Engene Ratcllffe Lewis claims the unique distinction of being the youngest policeman in the World, He is only 9 year* of age, and yet he Is a properly enrolled member of Kansas City's police force. It appears, too, that he has held this unique distinction of being the youngest policeman In the world for more than four ,voar». When he was but 5 years of age the late chief, Thomas M. Spuers of Kansas City, took a great liking to young Eugene, and, noticing the keen interest he took In police work, had him enrolled as a member of the force. He was served with a proper uniform, Including a miniature revolver. For the first four rears it was Ills delight to accompany policemen on their beats and listen to their stories of adventure. He has now, however, been allotted a recognised beat, the block in which his father lives, where he performs the duties ascribed to a full-grown policeman. He receives his orders dally from his chief and Is said to execute them with gravity,and precision, and is a universal favorite among the members of the force. Wluit a Visitor Learned. The visitor was being conducted through tlio largo public-school building by Its proud woman principal. Ills introduction to a class was something like this: "Oil, sw all the little girls! Busy, children? Happy? Now, why do you conic to school? Truly, you don't like to?" A little giggle was the affirmative answer. "Now, children, I think you said yon had a little piece to suy. What little girl will say a piece?" Forty bauds were up at once, and ten more a little later. "That little girl." A seven-year-old 10 checked pinafore rose, and making a little bow. which made her two golden pig-tails fly around amazingly, began: "How doth 'er 'Ittle buthy bee 1m- prootli eath thlnlng hour?" Aud the next little girl lisped in the same way about the acorn, and another about the field-daisy and the butterfly. "My children, you all lisp," suggested the principal. "Yeth, ma'am," said one; "thath becauth we huthn't all our teeth." And a finger pointed to the place where two front teeth ought to be. "Oh!" said the principal. "How many little girls have lost teeth—baby teeth?" Forty-two out of fifty children held up their hands. Only eight had all their teeth. "Now, why do you lose your teeth?" asked the principal. "So ath to get big onfrh," was the answer. "How many kinds of teeth do you have?" asked the principal. All numbers were given. "Three?" said the principal. "What is the third kind?" "The klndth you keep in a glass," was the answer.—New York Advertiser. A Trick He Didn't Learn. The old master had known all about "cribbing" as a schoolboy, " and 1 had never forgotten the little tricks and dodges. One day during an examination the keen-eyed teacher observed one of his pupils take out his watch every minute or two. The pedagogue grew suspicious. Finally he strode slowly down the aisle, and stopped in front of Willie's deck. "Let me see your watch," he commenced. "Yes, sir," was the reply. The teached opened the front of the case. He looked somewhat sheepish when he read the single word "Fooled." But he was a shrewd man. He wan not to be thrown off the scent so easily. He opened the back of the case, then he was satisfied. There he read "Fooled again!" It Was » Mystery. Harry's father was trying to raise chickens with the aid of an Incubator, and one day as the little fellow was watching u chicken energetically breaking its way through the shell be remarked: "I see how he gets out all right, but I can't see bow he got in.' 1 rn« Hweet Girl "My graduation essay wUJ be dreadful," said tue aweet girl. »W,to do you twek so, EtbrtF "Wfell, Aunt June wanted tp me, «o I urn Jetting bar ma $n<j j worry »b»ut my ) FISHING ON HORSEBACK. Hew ft Wide-Awake Bey lt*d« * e«od Hani. "ttl, there!*' shouted & boy rety ttnch otrt of breath, who hid run ^up from the beach where tha big tollers were piling in with a mighty roar. "What Is It?" replied a stableman. "Squids, millions of 'em; they're Jest la the serf. Can't you lend me a horse?" gasped the boy. "It that so?" said the man, "Why," looking around, "here's a couple of ponies waiting; jump on and I'll go with you," and forthwith the two sprang Into the saddle* and dashed down to the beach. "You can hook 'em right ashore." said the boy, and, leaping off the pony, he picked up from the beach, where he had previously laid It, a bamboo rod about nln» feet long that had a large hook • at the end. Thus equipped, he moved down to the water's edge. It bad been blowing a heavy southeaster, and great wav«s were coming In, piling up long black masses of kelp that wound away like serpents over the sand. Here and there, just on the borders of the waves, were strange, uncanny looking creatures, six or seven feet In length, with long finger-like tentacles and black staring eyes. Some were high, dry and helpless; others were half In the water, waving their sucker-like tentacles as though imploring aid, while out In the waves others could be eaen, either driven in by some large flgb, or beaten in frv the sea. "What good are they?" asked the stableman, who- bad neve seen the animals. "Good?" repeated the boy. "Why, it's fun cat chin' 'em, and I can sell the eyes and pen for 60 cents. Jest look at 'em, will you!" and, digging his feet into the reluctant broncho, he urged him Into the surf, where, reaching down, he hooked on to something. A big wave splashed over his back, drenching him from head to foot, but he held on to the squid, and the broncho, though visibly alarmed at the hideous looking creature, dragged it out high and dry on the beach, where it lay pumping ink and water, its long arms coiling about like snakes. After various excursions into the surf the boy, having with the aid of the stableman hauled the animals above hVgh-water mark, began to secure his treasures. Each squid had a pen—a long, opal-tinted translucent object, the model of a huge pen and holder 18 or 20 baches in length. This was found extending from the tip of the tall to the neck of the animal, and served as a support, something like a backbone. But the squid Is a squid, not a backboned animal. Next the huge eyes were taken out and the eyeball secured, which, after drying, resembled a pearl almost as large as a maoble. Then the young fisherman produced a bag of Ink from the body of the animal, which he said was India ink. This was true, and at one time this sepia was the only India Ink known. The pen of some species of the animal is the cuttlefish bone of commerce, given to canary birds. These treasures the young fisherman later sold to tourists and curiosity dealers.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. KNOWN THE WORLD OVER. You already know Kate Greenaway as the artist of the picture-poems which have given quaint little costumes to so many dainty'little maids. This Is the way Kate Greenaway, the woman, looks. Animals Combat. Fights in sheer devilment sometimes take place between animals in confinement, says Cassell's Magazine. A short, sharp battle took place In Edmonds' menagerie between a lion and a tiger just forty years ago. The lion was the same which had escaped from Jamruch's yard, in what was then Ratcliffe highway, and bitten » boy. M. Edmonds bought it, and is Bald to have billed it as "the tiger that swallowed the child." Of course the beast was a great draw, but after a few days In its new quarters the tiger managed to draw forward the sliding shutter and squeeze itself Into the ad- Joining den, where a lion was confined. The lion resented the intrusion, but was immediately seized by the throat, and, though there were tremendous struggles, the fight was practically over as soon as It commenced. The tiger never loosed its hold and in a few minutes the lion was dead. About twenty years later a fatal fight took place in the lion -house of the Zoological garden, Regent's park, between a tiger and a tigress. The latter was ill-tempered, and, in sparring with her mate, drove her claw through tils nostril, and so began the fray. The tiger threw her down and struck her several times with his paw, but without doing serious damage, then turned away* as if to discontinue the fight. This the tigress would not suffer, for she.sprang at his flank ana fixed her teetb to ills thjgh. This was more than be could stand.

The simplest additions for coloring the crystals, while not bringing about such fine results, are a few drops of ordinary blue-black writing ink or of a solution of litmus, which can easily be obtained In any drug store. Chewing; Oum Schemes. The most successful chewing gum -manufacturer in the United States was doing a little shop talk by request, says an exchange. "Wihen I first went into the business," he was saying, "chewing- gum was classed with children's confectionery, aud was sold almost entirely by the penny confectioners to school children. If a grown person used it at all he got it from the children and such a thing as an adult buying gum for his own use WHS almost unheard of. I noticed this, and as I grew ambitious to extend my business, I also noticed other' things. > "One of these ;was that the man who was • occupied 1 ' always seemed to : want to have something to cnew on. If he used tobacco as a chew, the desire was satisfied, but if he did not, he would use-»omethlng else. I saw the farmer chewing ion 1 & wisp of hay; I saw the man at the thrasher chewing a straw; I'saw ttre lawyer at his desk chewing a pen, the editor nibbling at a pencil, the merchant chewing on a wad of paper crumpled up from an envelope; I saw a man on the street absorbed in thought crunching a toothpick, and so on among all sorts i and conditions. I •found out then-that the mouth was really the nerve center of the entire body and that this chewing was not a habit that meant nothing bst habit; but was a response to a demand of nature. Bo I set out to meet <that demand with chewing gum. "I .threw aside-the old ideas In the manufacture of the gum and devised new things, not only in the material, but in the methods of Its making, and ha time had •something on the market that would in my opinion emit the adult taste. But th« adult was ashamed to-bo seen chewing gum, much less buying it, and I distributed free, thousands of package* of my article, until I bad proved conclusively that it was a good thing. Then I let It do its own work, and my business has for several years been increasing at the rate of a hundred thousand dollars a year, and the great majority of consumers are adults." • Bull-Fighting; In Franc*. French legislation against bull-fighting to clearly taken as a Joko In southern France, says the 'London Chronicle. At Nlmes, as we have often pointed out, there 1* no difference in the "sport," of which that magnificent Roman remain, the Arenes, is the scenes several times a year, and that which one witnesses in Spain, while at Beziers, Bayonne and Perpignan the bulls are killed after a mild protest, savoring of comic opera, by the local authorities. At Marseilles (according to our Paris correspondent) the scene on Ascension day was unusually lively. Two celebrated matadors, Guerrlta and Cone- jito, were specially engaged. Out of the six bulls killed one bad been rather unfairly treated. The audience demanded a seventh, but Guerrlta refused. An affray followed, during which the spectators flung the chairs and footstools at the heads of tbe bullfighters. In the end tbe police cleared tbe arena and arrested a handful of rioters. Moreover, there seems very goad reason to bejieve tbe pleasure caterers fqr tbe British visitors at Boulogne the A&'jA'r^ g 8,sa*oj&.s
