TIIK IlEFOrtMlXa COMMISSIOXKK
The Engineer Commissi iner of the
IMstrlct, Colonel ltobert, Is wearing
w 1th pride the Congregntlonat Church
meeting bouquet of praise of his official
action as a ridel amang the downfallen
w ho drink bed whisky, stale beer, and
worse wine o' nights In ont-of tlie-way
plates of iniquity. The Colonel-Engi
neer, or the Unglneer-Colonel, or the
Engineer Commissioner Colonel, proba
bly deserves the praise that he is
receiving. Ileally, upon serious con
sideration of the question, we
bare no doubt that lie does. In
truth, he has no purpose In view but
the good of the District, the enforce
ment of the laws, the reclamation of
the downfallen nnd the punishment of
the perversely wicked. But will he
permit u to say that he luxuriates, as
a practical reformer, in too much brass
band? that he descends upon the rev
cling wicked with too great n display
of banners? that there Is not In fact
but In appearance Just a little too
much of tlio Little .lack Ilornor
boaetfulness in the way he ents
his reform plum-pie In tho eye
of the public 7 No doubt the Com
missioner Is a good man, doing good
work In a good way, and tli'nt ho de
serves praise above his almost wicked
partners, Commissioners Douglas nnd
Illnes, but it does seem to Tiik Ciutic
tl at he should work In a more subdued
light than the electric glare of the look
at'ine publicity In which he has been
busily reforming the slums lately.
TIIEOWL SUI'KItSKDKD 11Y CIIAN
TIOLKKIt. The owl w.w one of the two birds
to width Minerva, the OixldtHs of Wis
di in, was partial; and for that reason,
piobably, this bird has been tliu pir
titular favorite of Tiik Ckitic. Hut
the owl Is not of unblemished reputa
tion. It Is carnivorous. It has n dis
agreeable voice. And It gets ita liveli
hood In what is called owl light, be
cause that Is a glimmering or Imperfect
Hlit. In abort, the owl la a bird ot
the night and a bird of prey, and In
Leviticus, as well as In other books
of the Ulble, It Is denounced as a foul
abomination among fowls. Job also,
ami other miserable or complaining
men of the Scriptures, have made other
disparaging remarks about this wise
looking creature. So, we have be
come prejudiced against the owl. We
believe It to be a bad bird; and, to be
frauk, wt believe, also, that the wis
dom of the owl Is all in Ita eye.
We are compelled, therefore, to take
the owl from Tiik Critic, as the bird
that Is emblematical of the paper's mis
sion; but, in r lace of the hooting ami
screeching looter of the barn-yard, wo
we will give to Tiik Ckitic as its em
bh mullc bird the other favorite bird ef
3Iinerva, Chapman's Democratic
rooster, that ever-glorious, cheery
voiced, never-say-die, always-ready-for-a-tigbt
bird the bird that has crowed so
often and so loudly over many a Demo
cratic triumph, and was during all the
(lark night of Democratic disaster what
Shakespeare has designated it, the bird
of dawning, and that even now Is the
herald of the morn of Democratic vic
tory, the promise of which Is reddening
the eastern sky.

In order that the cillsewsof the Dis
trict of Columbia may be prepared to

Impertinence of the questions ashed, we

the Census Bureau
The Eleventh Cetious of the Unltel

The place of birth of each person, anil the
place of birth of the father and motlier ot
each person, will also lie called for, as well

or occupation followed and the numtier of
months unemployed during the census
For all persons ten years of nge or over,
a return must bo made by the enumerator

lish. For thoson ho cannot speak English

paiers. Of the bead of each family visited

concerlDt: theowuersiilp of the farm.
In addition to thew Inq'ilrle. all of

To tho above Commissioner Porter
adds the following appeal:
This olHcljl count of the people comes
but onee In ten years, and every family and
every person should consider it to be their
duty to answer tbe questions of the census
enumerators willingly and promptly, so
tbat definite and accurate Information may
be gained concerning tbe 06,000,000 people
living within the bounds of this great
"A SCHOOL BOY" REPLIES
To deorcla" anil Milken Oauttlo Ne
wark In 111 I'enullar Myle.
KMter Critic. In your valuable
paper of May 24, 1600, your correspon
dent, "Georgia," attempts in vain to
color tbe waters of truth upon tbe
iiuottlon of outlets! He squirms like
an eel In the hands of Sullivan! It Is
useless! He knows tbat tbe law, tbe
illustration, and tho application, which I
presented In your paper of May 21, are
correct and he dare not deny them!
I have great respect for teachers,
especially from tbe prairies of Kansas,
when they tell tbe whole truth and
nothing but the truth; and yet when
they move into the valley of the Missis
sippi and settle at such highland places
as Natchez, In tbe State of Mississippi,
aad from such points of natural advaat
age endeavor to mislead the Govern
tient Into building vast levees oa tbe
banks of tbe Mississippi River, which
often cave into the river, ktveee aad all,
1 must talk back.
If I were buildiBg a railroad from
Kansas City toNatohez. Miss., It U very
probable (hat I should oppose outlets
until I got the Govern meat to divide
the cost of the bed of ay railroad ia the
t'Veriiowed lands north of Red River
upou the ground that it was acting as a
Mad of levee for the plasters!
1 deay tha absurd figures la regard to
the deposit to Lake Borgue for the
reason that tbe tidal outlots of tbe Mis
sissippi River at Southwest Pass, South
Pass, Pass Loutre, Cubit's Gap and the
Jump have beea open for periods raug
tog from forty years to two huadred
years, ami for the same reasons would
the outlet toto Lake Borgae, if made
osm mile wide aad km feet deep at low
water, remain open with a river be
tween Its banks just Uke the other tidal
outlets named above have done, are
detox and will continue to do until
aiopptd up by scientific ignoramuses!
The luods of the Mhjifasippi Biver
wuat be given many wide, deep and
direct outlets to the tiulf. or they will
continue to run over the tops of the
levees, to their mad efforts to get to the
Gulf of Mexico ! It seessts to me that,
if Congress Usttuu much longer to the
sessMlees assertions of men who have
the audacity to say that there are no
socks to the bed of the Mississippi
Shier at Malchez, on which Ave steam
brass have been wieeked. the Missie
ajppf Sever stii get wad and back
oVomn the Aichsiatoya to the Gulf, and
thus leave New Orleans upon an Inland
