The case confinnes to attract attention over the country. The railiire ol the -oinicers after an IntelliRent am' dilli^enl investigation of four days t< get. at the bottom of the death of MIsf Sapp. has caiixed it to be known al over the country. Th.- Kansas ('ll> i?tar hi»s expressed the intention o; reRortlDg to every menus lo fnihon the mystery.

County Attorney Teierson said this morning that after an invrstiRatinn hi found there was nothing to the ilieor lhat the tramp who was in Moran Kri day and went on to Savonburff migh have had something to do with th« crime. Likewise the report that a wo man resembling Miss Sapp had beet .•;een quarreling with a man in an al ley proved lo have no bearing on the as It is known tliai the womai w^as not Miss Sapp. The finding of a cuff Ir.iifon and : key near ^here the body lay. dny be fore yesterday, have noi been of ser vice In clearing iipMhe tragedy thn: far. Mr. Peterson .said today that it his opinion it. was Inat there by snnn one who came to the sieuo after th< death of the unfortunate girl. Me salt that he did not ihiiik anything wouli be learned through'this discovery. ! An agent of the Monigomery-W'an supply house from which the razoi found near the liody of .\iiss Sapp wa^ origipally purchased h.-is notified thf officers that the will bo glad K open their books or do anything t( trace down'the ownership of the In­ st rutnent. There is a .senJimenJ at .Moran that the county commissioners should offer a reward to capture the murderer, if miirder was commuted. It Is possible that if th£ m^-stery is not cleared tip by the next seBsion of the commissioners the matter of offering a reward will be presented t,o them. The majprity of the people contintie lo believe that it was murder and will not even give consideration to the suicide idea. Sheriff C. p. IJollinger still entertains a belief thai the girl look her own life. Mr. Peterson thinks it it murder. The people of Moran are yet unabli to recover'from the horrors which the tragpdy has spread over the commun- Iiy. The citizens do not go out at night except in groups and then carry lanterns. That one who was as generally popular as Miss Sapp should ha,v^ been'murdered in her own yard causes tbe moat .fearless to be appre- nected with the case, yet It is known that the ileipctive has alre.-idy Inter viewed local people who were rnmillar Willi ilii> case.

To leave the mniUT In iincertalnl.v onger only invites trouble from the Filipinos themsehw and disturbs In •emallonal relations. Japan has her aye on the Philippines and would no ioiilii pay the T'nllf.d States a good roiiml sum for them. Germany also las a hankering to own the Islands. .\s long as this coiititry leaves the question of future action open both lajian and Cermany are in a hopeful •nood. 1( is to s.^iile thr. policy once for all that the president wilt urge •ongress to act. If ilie fiuestloii is checked up to con rress it will no doubt precipitate n tiff fight. All the Democrats will ipposr, a re-oliilion declaring for the retention of the islands forever. They vill lie re-inforced liy a goodly nnm- ^er of Republicans who have reaehei' he conclusion that Ibe soon.'?r we get ut of the Orient the better we will be ff. There is no question but what sentiment in favor of the sale of Iho •filands is on the iner.'»ase, but it has lot reached such proportions yet that resolution lo sell would get any- vhere in congress. The president ealizes that the question should be 'inally s.^ttled as soon as possible and stop the agitation.

Washington, Otc. 1.—Secretary of Peace Taft has accomplished half the errand of his world belting trl]). Trea ty negotiations with Jaiian, suspended inonthR ago in Washington, have been lesumed in Tokio. Al least that's what ofllcial Washtngion reads between tbe lines of this morning's disiiatches from Tokio telling of the dinners and reccp tlons accorded Mr. Taft In the chrysan themum land and of bis interview with Ihe war minister, Teraiichl. .Nominally the Secretary's sole in the Orient lo lieum benightly upon the beginnings of self govern inent in the Philippines. Actually the greatest responsibility placed upon him was to straighten out a bad .-\merican-.Iapanesc tangle as he straightened out friars' land tangle ill Rome, a revolution in Cuba and Isth iniaii canal complications on numer- :iiis occasions. About the time con •:;resK adojurned lust spring negoli.a lions for a new treaty wiih .laiiaii bad i -eached a bad stage.

If the children were readmitted lo school privileges ihe diplomats would then he willing (o •onsider a restriction of Japanese joolie immigration tirovided the ITnit- ed States could and would trade .some jirivilege or concession 10 Japan for 'hat re.«iriction. When President ;loosevelt and the California aiiihori- rles linally infoi-mally arranged for the i -eturn of the school privileges and Joupled this with tentative exclusion legislation by congress, tlie Japanese tropped Ihe negotiations and took very peevish lone. While the cliildren were back in school, there had not leen secured the formal acknowledge- uent that the battle ships would be Ignited Stales had arranged for what was supposed would be a reasonably •••frpctive exclusion of coolies without m.v treaty at all. To be sure this ex-. -Iiision arrangement depended on the' mikado's refu.sal of passports direct to Ihe United Strifes to hi.^ co<ilie subjects by providing that without such oassports coolies could not come in. Aokl BIuRtered In Vain, nm the .Mikado, after representing hat he wanted his coolies to stay at home, could not. suddenly alter his 2Hstora and issue them I'nited -States •naini.ind iiassports without seeming to be picking trouble. For all Am- ba.s.sador Ooki's bluster and swagger •n the State department he had been iiilgeneraled. So Japan droptied the treaty negotiations and ihe talk from Pokiu was all aboui the case wl:h which Jaiian coiilil take the Phllip- lines in ir wanted them. It was hen that President Roosevelt reached for his "big stick." At the announcement thae tifie battle ships would be shifted to the Pacific, the Bjiiiiler of faiianese threats were shut off so ah- riintlv lhat the sudden silence was painful. Then came the Vancouver riots, which swept the ground from under Japan's strongest position on the treatment of Japanese, in the United States. There h.ive been recent Indica tion.9 that the mikado's government was eager to descend from the high horse, and Secretary Taft accordingly held a controversy with President Roosevelt and Secretary Root at Oyster Ray before starting for the East. On the ocean trip the Seererary went rrarefully over all the papers and documents in the case. If the .Tapanese mentioned the word "treaty" to him he was ready for them. If they said nothing he would a.ssure them of his distinguished consideration and let It go at that. Thus the administration provided an opportunity for tbe Oriental to ".save his face.". The Japanese did not want to ask aAWashington for the reopening of negotiations they themselves had broken off. They did not even care to request a reopening ihroiigh their ministry of foreign affairs and the American ambassador In Tokio. But recognizing the etiquette that would reauire Secretary Taft to call first in Tokio on the .Tapanese minister of war. Viscount Teraucbl. they made a temporary dplomat ont of Teraucbl as President Roosevelt bad made an envoy extraordinary of Taft. - . The Flwt to Go, Anyhow.
