Japan Not to Be Censured For Quar
antine Violations.
Washington, July 13. The negotia
tions between the state department and
the Japanese authorities relative to the
alleged quarantine discrimination
against the Japanese in California and
Colorado aer coming to a close as the
fears of bubonic plague in the west
have largely died out, and the necessity
for rigid quarantine has disappeared.
Under such circumstances the diplo
matic discussion, which at times has
been quite sharp, has lost most of its
point and it probably will be brought to
a. close by an expression of regret on the
part of Japanese officials that there was
any occasion for discrimination and
the hope that in the future treaty guar
antees will be observed.

Story of Why Indians, Discouraged,
Wave Up Corn Dance.
The reason why the Pottawatomie In
dians have ceased giving corn dances is
told by the Sherlock Holmes of the To
peka club under the title of "The Passing
of the Corn Dance." The story is a.vfol
lows: Last Saturday A. L. Williams and fam
ily and W. A. L. Thompson and family
went to Holton, hired carriages 'and drove
up to the corn dance. When the grounds
were reached they found nothing going
on.- The party waited a while, but the
Indians did not seem disposed to dance.
Colonel Williams is known as a man of
resources. lie announced to the noble
red men that while waiting for the big
show he wished to introduce to their no
tice a pale face who would give them an
exact interpretation of the Indian corn
dance as danced by the old original In
dians of Indiana. Master of Ceremonies
Williams then took Mr. Thompson to one
side and explained to him that the war
riors were becoming somewhat unruly,
and would have to be entertained.
"Al" Thompson, as he is known among
hs friends, has the reputation of being
a terpsichorean artist, and Colonel Wil
liams informed him that he must dance.
Mr. Thompson dressed for the occasion.
He donned one of the high-peaked straw
sombreroes that one of the young ladies
in the party was wearing, stuck a corn
stalk in his collar and wrapped a laprobe
about him. The laprobe had a big yellow
lion on the btu-k of it. Mr. Thompson put
it on cornerwise, and walking away from
a person looked like the ace of diamonds.
Master of Ceremonies Williams grabbed
a tom-tom and went to work. He intro
duced the gTeat chief, who sailed onto
the dance ground and started what la
called on the lithographs "one of those
wild, weird dances sacred to those who
dance it and entrancing to those who wit
ness it." On the tom-tom Williams
pounded to beat the band. The dancer
Kave a mixture of the Highland fling, the
cake walk, the pigeon-wing and a few
figures from the cowbov lancers. The
dance wound up with an interpretation of
H. Rider Haggard's "Mesh pot" spectacle.
The the party from Topeka lined, up in
the shade of a tree to witness the corn
dance. But they did not see it. The In
dians positively refused to stir. The big
chiefs immediately got together and
passed resolutions. When translated the
resolutions were to the effect that after
seeing such an artistic effort that the
Indians would never again play second
fiddle by giving anything as tame as a
corn dance. So there will be no more
corn dances, and the Topeka men are
the cause of it.

Eastern Manager of Sheldon
Edition Makes Trouble.
Herbert Houston Claimed $5,
700 Due on Account.
Collected $3,000 in Cash Before
" He Went Home.
Dell Kelzer Talks About the
The troubles caused by the Sheldon
edition, of the Capital are not yet over.
Only this week Judge S. W. Vandervert
who Is a. partner of S. M. Gardenhlre in
New York was here with blood in his
eye and a demand for money in his
hand. He got the money.
Judge Vandervert was the representa
tive of Herbert S. Houston, the man
who managed the eastern business of
the Sheldon edition and who worked up
the sentiment among- the Christian En
deavor societies through which the cir
culation reached into the hundreds of
Mr. Houston also interested the ad
vertisers in the east who would patron
ize a "Christian Daily" and was in fact
the eastern head of the Sheldon edi
tion. He was) to be paid of course and paid
well and it was stipulated that he was
to have 22 per cent of the net pro
ceeds. His bill was accordingly in the
neighborhood of $7,000 and he was paid
a part of the sum before Dell Keizer re
signed as business manager but there
was still a balance of J5.700 due him.
Mr. Houston did not get this money
and after waiting some time he employ
ed Judge Vandervert to come to Topeka
and take the necessary steps to make
the collection. The attorney was pre
pared to enforce his demands though his
movements were attended by the most
absolute secrecy.
Judge Vandervert threatened to apply
to the district court for a receiver for
the paper unless a settlement was made
at once and a lively time ensued.
The managers of the paper finally
raised $3,000 which was paid to Judge
Vandervert and he left Topeka with thi3
money for Mr. Houston and a promise
that the rest would be paid soon.
During Sheldon week the business
management of the Topeka Capital was
in charge of Dell Keizer. Since that time
Mr. Keizer has retired from the Capital
company, and when Judge Vandervert
presented his claim this week it was
claimed that it was through negligence
on the part of the former business man
ager that the debt had not been looked
This Mr. Keizer emphatically denies.
When seen today he said concerning the
"When I left the business manage
ment of the Capital there was sufficient
money in the treasury to pay Mr. Hous
ton. He was not paid within the time
specified in his contract for the reason
that adjustment had to be made with
several advertisers, and it was not
known what he was entitled to. A pay
ment was made Mr. Houston, and after
that I suggested making further pay
ments as the advertising accounts were
settled. However, other members of the
board thought it was better to wait un
til the entire matter bad been closed up.
"It is preposterous to say that I was
in any way responsible for the delay in
paying Mr. Houston's account. I can
scarcely believe that any member of the
Capital company would make such a
Besides handling the eastern advertis
ing Mr. Houston looked after the dis
tribution of the paper among Christian
Endeavor and other church organiza
tions. His work was particularly valu
able, and the biggest portion of the rev
enue of the week tame from the east.
Whether Mr. Sheldon is aware that
debts are still standing as a result of his
peculiar experiment is not known. How
ever it's only reasonable to suppose that
if he has the knowledge he has insisted
before this on the payment of the
claims. Mr. Sheldon's motto: "What
would Jesus do?" might be applied.
