I'd guess that his publisher was the one to cut it out back when Baum wrote it. You see similar things in other media. Some scenes were cut from Frankenstein (with Boris Karloff) when the movie 1st came out due to it being felt people would find them objectionable as an example. I can see a publisher having done something similar with an author's book.
