I One Small Jap Has % Been Responsible
for Much of the Talk.
Washington , July 11. It Is about
time American people should under
stand the character and extent of the
political propaganda which Is In prog
ress In this country for the overthrow
of the ministry In power in Japan.
The avowed object of this propaganda
is to secure hotter treatment for Jap
anese In the United States. Its real
object is the establishment by the
people of Japan of a new government ,
made up of members of the progres
sive party , with Count Okuma as pre
The man who claims to bo taking
care of the Interests of the progressive
party in Washington is Dr. Masujl Ml-
yakawa , a clever Japanese , who holds
a number of degrees received from
American colleges and who alleges
that he is a graduate of various high
schools in his native country where ,
he says , he has lectured on Interna
tional law before the naval cadets of
Makes "Tame" Stories "Newsy. "
It Is true he has degrees. His home
career is not so well authenticated.
He has been in the United States off
and on for eight years , though ho
spent some time In Russia getting In
formation for the Japanese army and
served as was correspondent In China
during the boxer revolL
He speaks English well and knows
Low to make newsy translations of
' dispatches taken from old Japanese
This Is what he did a few days ago
when he gave to the press the sub
stance of an alleged official conflden
tial memorandum said to have been
issued by Foreign Minister Hayashl
and describing the attitude of the Jap
anese government on the question o :
the limitation of immigration.
Not In Touch With Facts.
The authenticity of this memoran
dum Is denied In well-Informed circles
and an Investigation discloses the fact
that Dr. Mlyakawa read the memoran
dum which he disseminated In an op
position newspaper of Toklo.
Miyakawa claims to be the owner
of a paper In San Francisco called the
Japan Tribune , a sheet of no standing
according to reports here. Its profits
must be 'small , for Mlyakawa's supply
of cash , according to what Is known
Is limited.
He Is In constant telegraphic cor
respondence with disgruntled Japanese
on the Pacific coast. If he receives
Any cablegrams , as he claims , they arc
few and far between.
Imagined Aoki's Recall.
He alleged recently he had been ad
vised from Toklo that Ambassador
Aokl was to be recalled , and the pub
llcatlon of this Information gave rise
to a great deal of comment in this
country and caused officials to declare
if the ambassador were withdrawn
the action could only be regarded as
an indication that Japan proposed to
adopt the "mailed-fist" policy , am
would necessitate preparations by this
It has since developed that there
was absolutely no foundation for. the
report of Viscount Aoki's recall. The
ambassador Is to remain Indefinitely
in the United States , and possesses
the full confidence of his government
which includes the emperor as wel
as the ministry.
Could Stop Trouble.
Mlyakawa said a few days ago tha
he could stop the agitation In Japan
in a moment If he chose to do so. Ho
also could stop the agitation In the
United States by falling to give to In
nocent newspapers and reporters some
of the information ho extracts from
Japanese papers. It Is the knowledge
of Miynkawa's doings that Is respon
slble , In a great mdasure , for the re
fusal of the state department to ex
press concern over the Japanese sltua
At the same time It is apparent thn
the representative of the progressive
party is doing his political work well
but the officials say that If ho wore
really patrlctic ho would not bo seek

United States , oven though thereby ho
might secure the domination of his
friends in the Japanese government

Deputy Marshal John Bcldlng Tells of
Rapid Progress of Indians on the
Two Big Reservations In South Da
Sioux Falls , S. D. . July 11. Those
vho have not visited the great Sioux
ndlan reservations of South Dakota
luring the past few years can hnvo
nly a slight conception of the ni'eat
ulvaiicomont these once \\aillko In-
Inns havu made toward civilization ,
The ghost duncu trouble of the wln-i
or of 1S90-1 , which culminated In tho1
loody battle of Wounded JCnoo creek ,
narked the turning of the tide In the
ondltton of the 120,000 Indians who
ompose the great Sioux nation , nnd
rom that time their advancement Inia'
jeen quite rapid , and especially during
ho past few years , or since a change'
vas made by the United Stales gov-1
eminent In the method of treating the
ndlaiiH , cutting off the rations of the
iblebodled Indians and mnk'ng ' them
) ecomo self supporting.
Ono of the men who has had an ex
cellent opportunity to cloHclv observe
lie great progress of the Sioux Indians
luring recent years Is John Holding ,
iloneer Black Illller , one of. the piln-
'Ipal deputies of Capt. Seth Bullock ,
United States marshal for South Da-
cota , nnd who for ten years or more
ins had assigned to him the Pine
illdge and Rosebud reservations , noon'
which reside more than half of the
entire membership of the great Sioux
mtlon. Deputy Marshal Holding's offi
cial duties take him frequently to nil
lortions of these two Immense reserva
tions , and he has had the best of op-
) ortunltles to watch the progress the
Indians are making toward civilization
and self support.
Good Points in Sioux Character.
"There are many good points about
: ho Sioux Indian character that the
man who does not know them cannot
appreciate , " said Deputy Marshal Bolding -
ing during an interesting conversation
In reference to what he had observed
while making his official trips to nil
parts of the Pine Ridge and Rostbud
reservations. "Of course , " he added ,
"they are stolid they do not show
their feelings , but that does not mean
that they are unfeeling.
"I have never seen more demonstra
tion of affection between parents nnd
children than In the homcb of the In
dians on the two reservations. They
are kind and careful with their little
ones and never strike them , and ,
strange to say , the children are obedi
ent and they seldom have any trouble
with them. An Indian surrounds him
self with a crust of reserve until he
knows you and trusts you , rnd after
that he Is quite open.
"Now , In our cases against criminal
Indians In the United States court
there are some Interesting develop
ments. The Indian witnesses for the
government will give their testimony
against their best friends , and some
times against their relatives , and give
It truthfully. Perjury Is nlnicst un
known In our cases. They have a
very stern sense of duty nnd are quite
willing to admit that the defendant
ought to be sent to the penitentiary.
"But here Is the odd part of It. Af
ter the trial Is over and the prisoner
sentenced many of the strongest wit
nesses against him , the very men
whose evidence has convicted him ,
will get their witness fees , go over to
the Jail and sometimes give him the
whole amount. The convicted Indian
never harbors any resentment against
the other Indians who have sworn
away his liberty. They take It as a
matter of course. I would sooner trust
an Indian on the witness stand than
lots of white men.
Marriage Held Sacred.
"The prevalent Idea that the Indian
regards his marriage ties lightly is all
wrong. He Is not a greater sinner In
this respect than the white man. Why ,
even In the savage days It Is a well
known fact that although women of
bad character accompanied the wan
dering bands of Indians they were not
allowed to camp with the regular band
and would bo stoned to death If they
were found in the camp.
"The Sioux Indians are making won
derful progress. Best of all , they are
learning to work. Some time ago the
government decided to abandon the
free ration system and announced that
Instead the men would be given work
building ditches and excavating dams
for Irrigation purposes. I had such a
poor opinion of the new plan that I
prophesied that It would never bo a
success. But It Is. The Sioux have a
natural love for horses , and It Is only
a short time until they lenrn to handle
a scraper or plow.
"They have constructed , under the
direction of white men , some very
good dams on the two reservations ,
where the water Is retained for stock
purposes. Down the line of the North
western railroad they are being large
ly employed as section men , nnd railroad -
road men tell mo that they are well
adapted for the work. At first , If they
got homesick , they would without
warning , throw down their tools , take
to the woods nnd walk home , but they
are getting over that , and the railroad
company now is Inducing them to
hi Ing their families with them and
camp along the line during the mini-
Engor for Education.
"On Rome of the other roHorvntlonn
of the country the government iichool
authorities have a iood deal of trou
ble getting the parents to send their
children to school , but not nmoni ; the
Sioux Indians. The Sioux are only lee
auxloiiH to huvo their children go to
"Tho old men , ofcourso , are the
greatest obstncloH to progress. They
