Vote to Japanese Was Ciurefullr
Scrntlnsctl by All Lawyers in
the Cabinet Before Final
Draft Was Made.
TOKIO. May 22. The reply of tho
United States government to tho Japanese
protest In regard to the California alloti
land ownership legislation, In saying that
It docs not Involve any violation of the
treaty between the United States and
Japan has caused great disappointment In
official and other circles here.
Tho Japaneso foreign office considers It
unsatisfactory, as It does not mention any
Intention on the part of the government
at Washington to take official steps to
nullify tho aot passed by the California
legislature.
The Japanese foreign minister Is urging
upon Viscount Chlnda. Japanese ambas
sador at Washington, the necessity of
pressing the Japanese Interpretation of
tho American-Japanese treaty.
Secretary Bryan's proposal to refer the
question to a referendum In the state of
California Is not received with favor here,
as the result Is considered doubtful.
The war talk emanating from Europe
and reaching Japim by cable Is not un
derstood In official and other circles here.
The atmosphere Is calm and great rcservo
is shown. ,
Papers Deny AKeretve Intent.
Some of the newspapers, howover, have
begun to speak out more freely. The
leading dally newspaper, the Osakn
Malnlshl, finds amusemont In what !t
calls the American fear of Japanese' ag-

IDDUUIU " " ,
the present is equal treatment with white
men. Japan's progress has reacnea
nnint -where It will no longer consent to
discrimination being shown against Its
subjects."
Th srenoral hone Is expressed here that
the reply sent from Washington Is not
America's final word, and especially as
the United States government' by Its In
tervention In California Inspired the be
lief here that It would adopt strong meas
ures In behalf of the Japanese.
It Is believed In Japan that the difficulty
tclll eventually be settled by diplomacy,
but the question of how Japan Is to pro
rA nest Is a puixle to the authortles.
Japan Is a stranger to the technicalities
of American laws and does not see its
ninr tn take the initiative In a law
suit, while national patriotism prevents
a formal request that naturalization do

first signal of attack. Under Sheriff
Bartlow, whose residence Is In the Jain

the building In anticipation of trouble.
Four of the men of the mob burst open
the heavy door leading Into the residence
apartments. In the corridor they were
confronted by Bartlow, who, at the
point of a revolver, forced them out of
the building. Deputies guarded the way
of communication from the sheriffs
apartments Into the coll rooms and also
every window.
Meanwhile, the shouts and sounds of
firing had attracted scores of citizens.
Their arguments and tho determined
stand of the officers finally Induced the
departure of the assailants. They re
turned to Falls City, after being assured
that Ballew would be returned to Ne
braska for trial as soon as legal formali
ties were complied with.
The first attempt to wrest Ballew from
the hands of the authorities occurred

of 600 negroes surrounded the Flora Ave
nue police station in the negro quarters
of this city today,' howling for the death

the mob's cries. A dozen or two negroes
remained about the station making
threats.

MAY RENAME THE CHURCH
Annual Council Considering Change
to "Amerioan Catholio Ghuroh."
FINAL SETTLEMENT IN THE FALL
National Conference nt NeTT York
Will Determine Whether to
Continue Present Title or
Turn to (Another. , .
The annual council of the jSastern
Diocese of tho Episcopal conference, In
session at Jacob's hall, will probably
thresh out the matter of renaming the
church. Whether the church shall con
tinue to be known as the "Protestant
Episcopal church" or-shall be known as
the "American Catholio churoh," Is a
question that Is agitating the Episco
palians at present.
It Is a matter that Is to como up for
final settlement at the national confer
ence to be held In New York next fall,
and tho trial conference expects to de
bate the matter so as to be able to take
a definite stand on tho subject when
delegates arrive at tho national confer
ence In Now York next fall.
Bishop A. L. Williams, who Is presiding
over the Eastern diocese, is in-favor of
changing the name to the "American
Catholio church." Some of the d6legatoa
to the conference are of a similar mind,
while others hope to cling to the title o!
"Protestant Episcopal church."
The rhurch was originally known ns
the Church of England. In America it
became the Protestant Episcopal church,
while the creed still bears tho words, "I
believe in tho holy catholic church."

no sign of flinching, but met death with
a resignation that has rendered the case
more than usually Interesting throughout
the country. During the last day Walker
was under the' influence of opiates most
of the time, but In conscious Intervals
gave evidence that he was not suffering.
Scores of sympathetic messages were
received by the family and many of them
were In the nature 'of inquiries as to tho
treatment being given Mr. Walker. It
has been Impossible to find out definitely
what Course the physicians took, as thoy
have refuged to talk, except to briefly
trace the progress of the poison's slow
but deadly effect.

Before tho end of June. the ranges of
western Nebraska, Wyoming, bouth Da
kota and Montana will ba covered with
Texas cattlo, there-being' haw something
like 35,000 head en route.
Conditions on tho Texas ranges last
winter were anything but favorable for
summer grazing, there being but little
rain. Consequently this spring the rnnge
aro nearly bare of grass and cattlemen
are either selling their stock, or shipping
It elsowhere. Tho ranges of Nebraska and
the central west on account of tho abund

are rushing their cattle here.
William I. Walker of Council Bluffs has
extensive landed possessions In South Da
kota, north of the Black Hills, and he Is
shipping LO00 head of steers there from
Texas. Walker was in Texas recently and
on tho trip purchased the cattle, finding
the market In a condition to justify
buying.
The heaviest shipper so far Is D. B.

The Rock Island Is getting the lion's

and out of here the business Is divided
between the Burlington, Northwestern

be delivered.
The great number of Texas cattle com
ing lnt6 tho range country tributary to
Omaha Is looked upon as something of a
boom for the South Omaha live stock

killed most of the carcasses will pass
through tho packing houses of the Magic

Cattlemen here say that none of the
Toxans will get onto the market this
summer, but they will begin coming next
fall. From the, range they will be brought
down Into the corn counties of Nebraska
and fattened In time for killing around
Christmas. Then another lot of them will

winter and during July and August of
next year will come onto the market as
