Jack Danciger, Mexican Consul at Kansas City, Missouri, sends Governor Arthur Capper of Topeka (Shawnee County) a petition protesting violence against Mexicans at Hutchinson (Reno County). The petition describes the threatening behavior and cites the recent killing of sixteen Americans by Pancho Villa at Santa Isabel (State of Chihuahua, Mexico) as the reason for the threats. The Mexican workers are mostly employees of the Santa Fe, Rock Island, and Missouri Pacific railroads.
