The Bill by California Legislature
Becomes Increasingly
Washington.—President Wilson is
keeping in touch with the situation
in Japan and California. He read
with interest the dispatches from
Tokio expressing the popular feeling
against the bill, and studies the text
of the pending measures as well as a
synopsis of similar laws in New' York
and Texas. The president told his
callers that the federal government,
of necesssity, must refrain from inter
ference with California, while in the
process of legislating and could not
make its attitude known to inquirinf
nations until the bills were passed.
He added, however, that if any im
pression had been circulated in Japan
that the administration here had be
come indifferent to the developments
in California, such a view was unjus
tified and that judgment as to the
measures should be withheld until
they are finally framed and passed.
In the meantime the president de
clared that every effort was being
made to keep in communication in
formally with the California legisla
ture. It is unlikely that the presi
dent will communicate his views di
rectly or take any step that will in
terfere with the legislative process,
but he hopes through members of
congress here to do his utmost to
prevent any obvious violation of
treaty obligations. Should treaty
rights be violated, he is hopeful that
Japan will withhold judgment until
the American courts have dealt with
the question.
Outbursts unwarranted.
Government officials appear to look
upon the popular outburst in Tokio
as unwarranted at this time. The
federal government fully intends to
give Japanese protection and privi
lege accorded foreigners under the
favored nation principle of its treat
ies. Diplomatic circles here are
alive to the situation and some of the
more prominent embassies and lega
tions have been ordered to keep
their embassies advised of every ac
Japan Talking cf War.
Tokio.—The situation brought
about by the California bill has be
come increasingly serious. A mass
meeting composed for the most part
of irresponsible people, demanded
the most extreme measures of retal
iation by Japan. During the gather
ing the singing of war songs aroused
the feelings of many of the lower
classes who were present.
Anonymous writers in the newspa
pers give an outline of plans for the
seizure of the Philippines and Ha
waii, and at the same time denounce
the Japanese government’s submiss
ive attitude. It is said that the
changed conditions in Japan make it
impossible for the government to re
strain the newspapers and the lower

Business Methods In Vogue at Kear
ney Industrial School Said
to Be Poor.
Lincoln.—Characterizing the busi
ness methods at the Kearney Indus
trial school under the Manuel admin
istration of the past four years as
worse than those in vogue at the most
slovenly-kept and antique "corner
grocery,” and averring that it would
have been cheaper foT the state to
have quartered its bad boys at the
most expensive Lincoln hotel, mem
bers of the special senate investigat
ing committee brought in a report in
which severe criticism is passed upon
C. B. Manuel.
The report was adopted following
perfunctory discussion. In part the
castigation offered much information
on the conduct of the boys’ school dur
ing the years 1909, 1910, 1911 and
1912. The members. Senators Placek,
Wink and Spirk, recommended that
further facts be gained by the state
board of public lands and buildings,
and that such action be taken as is
deemed proper by those state officials.
It is recommended that the attorney
general start immediate action for
the recovery of $1,300, which the com,
mittee believes should be paid back
to the state by Mr. Manuel. The report
in part, says:
"No method was used to keep sepa
rate the money expended for different
items, and no way to determine daily
the amount of supplies on hand, for
the reason that the steward delivers
such articles to the cook and heads of
different departments without making
a requisition therefor.
Reckless waste ot runus.
“The items of expenditure disclose
a reckless waste of public funds and
gross incompetency in every respect.
“The institution cash fund fails in
nearly every instance to disclose to
whom, or at what price, stock or grain
was sold. No receipts are given for
money received, which should be done.
“The amount paid for coal during
the first six months of 1912 shows an.
expenditure of $0,102.10.
“The institution has at all times
from sixty-five to eighty-five head of
cattle, of which thirty head are milch
cows, and yet the butter and egg ac
count for the first nine months of 1912
shows an expenditure of $951.
“Mr. Manuel appears to have en
joyed traveling at state expense, and
the account for traveling expenses
during his four years of tenure
amounts to $2,244.92. and in addition
to the above item the state paid for
the return of runaway boys during the
same period the sum of $2,318.87.
“The law provides that each head
of an institution shall make a requi
sition for supplies each month, but
Mr. Manuel did not trust the state
board and found it necessary to ex
pend $1,079.18 for trips to Lincoln for
buying purposes.
Sold Calves at Half Value.
“Mr. Manuel was a believer in re
ducing the high cost of living and
hence sold everything cheap. On Sep
tember 27, 1910, he sold thirty-two
calves, 6 to 7 months old, and eight
cows, for $415, or $10.90 a head, being
about 2 per cent per pound or one-half
of their value. This sale was made
to a son of one of the employes.
“The testimony before the commit
tee shows that in addition to the thir
ty-two calves and eight cows, there
were six heifers, and the bill of lad
ing of the Union Pacific railroad at
Kearney shows that forty-six head
were shipped out. Mr. Manuel has
failed to account to the state for the
six heifers. On October 1, 1912, he
sold twenty-five calves, twenty of
which were 6 to 7 months old, for the
sum of $250, being about one-half of
their real value. On December 30,
1910, Mr. Griffen, an employe, bought
and crated a three-months'-old calf,
which has never been accounted for.
In September, 1910, a cow was sold to
Mr. Fairchild, an employe, for $30,
which sum has not been accounted for.
There are twenty-three horses at the
institution, many more than necessary,
and Mr. Manuel sold two work horses
for $170 and purchased a riding
horse for $225, used exclusively by his
“The state had a typewriter on
hand, but Mr. Manuel conceived the
idea of renting his own machine to the
stenographer and drawing vouchers
from the state for $45 each month and
compelling the stenographer to pay
him $5 a month, thereby getting $240
for the use of his machine during his
te rm."
Crushed by Heavy Weight.
Hastings.—A. R. Harkins, aged 50,
was instantly killed when a tank con
taining about 000 pounds dropped

at a Hastings dairy, was engaged in

large water tank when the support
holding the tank broke, letting the
entire load fall on him. L. J. Mcore,
proprietor, hearing the noise, rushed
in from another room only to find
the man dead. Coroner .1. V. Begh
tol was called and decided that an
inquest was unnecessary.

Mysterious Race Who Live In New
Guinea, Refuse to Meet Europe
ans In Their Camps.
London.—Dr. Bruno Beheim gives
the following description of the mys
terious and little known race of the
Kukuhuhus of New Guinea: The Ku
kuhuhus live in a part of English ter
ritory through which runs the River
Qukheamu and which is situated near
the German boundary. This territory
is looked upon by the said race as
their inalienable birthright, and ev
ery usurper is regarded with hostile
eyes. No European has been able to
meet the Kukuhuhus in their dwelling
places. Prospectors and English of
ficials have made repeated attempts
to approach them, but their camps
were invariably found empty, often
with the camp fires still burning.
Many a time have Europeans left
presents highly prized by other na
tives, such as corals, red cloth, look
ing glasses, axes, etc.. In the deserted
camps, in the hope of establishing
friendly relations with these people.
But on returning to the same places

ed for presents remained untouched
where they had beer, placed.
Other races of New fluinea fear tha
Kukuhuhus as poison. They have
learned to their cost what it means
to cross the boundary. Some disap
pear for all time, while others are
found dead, thrust through with spear
wounds. The Kukuhuhus, however,
do a bartering trade with other na
tives in the following way: The lat
ter bring salt, earthenware, dried
fish, etc., and deposit them in a cer
tain indicated place. They then re
tire for a few hours, being notified to
do so by a curious cry from the dis
tance. The timid mountain dwellers
then descend to view the goods offered
for sale. If they want them they put
down other goods, such as skins,
feathers and other jungle produce
next to those articles wanted by them.
Then they retire in turn, and when
the way seems clear the coast dwell
ers approach again. If the latter are
satisfied with what Is offered in ex
change they take the goods put down
by the mountain people and go away:
If not satisfied they retire again as
before with empty hands. These
business transactions between wild
races show a sense of honor that re
sembles careful thought.
Doctor Beheim regards the Kuku
tiuhus as the most remarkable of the
ethnological wonders of New Guinea,
and he was not successful in discov
ering the secret of their origin.
An Ohio Convict Went Insane Before
Pardon Came—May Spend Days
in Asylum.
Columbus. O.—William Welch, thir
ty-five years old. the man who re
ceived a life sentence in the peniten
tiary for stealing a piece of bacon, is
no longer a convict. Governor Cox
announced his pardon. But the gover
nor could not restore Welch’s reason,
which has fled after five years In
prison. It is likely that the unfortu
nate man will have to spend the re
mainder of his days in the asylum.
Six years ago Welch, a New York
City waif, was caught with a piece of
bacon, valued at one dollar, which he
had stolen from a farmer at Green
ville. because, he said, he was hungry
and unable to obtain work.
He pleaded guilty to the charge of
burglary, believing that leniency
