NEW STATE CENSUS IN IOWA
Returni from Threa-Fonrths of Counties

NO REPORTS YET FROM THE C1TIE
Rapid Growth of rrhan Communities
Will Probably Have Eort of
Showing Small Ket
Ftom a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, July 23. (Special.) With
the official census figures given out up to
this time there are fifty-four counties In
all reported and of these forty-two, or more
than three-fourths, show a loss in popula
tion. There is now little doubt that the
total population of the' state will show a
decrease. The only possible chance for an
Increase In the population to be shown Is
In the fart that -the counties containing
large cities, such as Des Moines, Council
Bluffs. Sioux City, Davenport, Dubuque and
Clinton, have not yet been officially re
ported. It is hardly possible that the gain
of the cities will be sufficient to offset the
decrease In the population of the rural
counties'. In the counties reported there
are foTty-four cities of various sites In
the thousands and of these thirty-one show
a gain and thirteen a loss.
Will Teat Homestead Laws.
A test of a question affecting the home'
stead laws Is to be made in the case of
William O. Rice against J. H. Burkhart
and Sheriff W. C. ToueJ of Benton county.
according to the argument of the attorney
for Rice. Rice for many years made his
home with his father, James Rice, In Ben
ton county, on a forty-acre homestead of
the father. The family of William Rice also
lived at the same place and he cared for
his father In his old age. By will he' gave
the homestead to the son and Burkhart
seeks to collect a Judgment of $13 from the
farm. Rice claims that the farm Is ex
empt as being his homestead. According to
the attorneys for Rice the particular phase
of the homestead laws has never been be
fore the supreme court before. Section
of the code says, after providing for the
homestead passing from the husband to the
wife or the opposite, provides that In case
the husband or wife Is not survived by
the other the property shall descend to the
next of Issue according to the ordinary
rules of such matters, "unless otherwise
directed by will, and Is to be held by such
Issue exempt from any antecedent debts
of their parents or their own. except those
of the owner thereof contracted prior to
Its acquisition." It Is the claim of the
attorneys for Rice that the clause "unless
otherwise directed by will," In ' this case
operates to exempt the property as the
homestead of Rice. .

The members of the tribe have during the

receive many hundreds of dollars. While
the Tankton Sioux tribe Is one of the
wealthiest In the country, the younger In

future will make a comfortable living from
In the past the Indians have been ac
customed to live In proximity to each other,
notwithstanding that they are the owners
of farms which are distributed at widely
separated points, the Indians traveling back
and forth between their homes and their
farms In order to carry on their farming
operations. O. J. Taylor, sub-agent In
charge of the Indians, has for some montlH
been encouraging the Indians to reside upon
their farms, and many of them have now
followed his advice.
By residing upon their land they are bet
ter able to carry on their farming pursuits
and are meeting with greater success. Sub
stantial little cottages have been erected
for them and they are as comfortably
situated as many of the white farmers sur

has succeeded In eluding the officers.
The other day the authorities of Bon
Homme county were notined that a horse
had been stolen from a farmer living near
the town of Wagner. It was supposed to
hRve been stolen by young Hanig. It was
also discovered that the girl had disap
