AGTIKG SUPT. GHILDS INTERVIEWED.
A Vigorous Defense of Mr. PorUr
and His Goloal Work.
GOOD HEN, WITHOUT REGARD TO PARTY,
Have Been Chosen to Fill Important
PlaeesNew York's HowlKtoks
from Philadelphia and Baltimore.
Superintendent of tlic Census Potior,
who is now on the ocean returning
frrm a trip to Europe, will, If good
h:ck atiomls him, be nt home negatn
next Monday. Mr. Porter wont nway
on Ibe advico of bis physicians, nftor a
severe and what for a time was fonred
might prove n fatal Illness, brought on
by the 6 train caused by his Incessnnl
duties In the Census Olllco. It is to
bo hoped that he will como home
full of health and strength. lie will
need plenty of both when he gets down
to work again.
Frequently, of late, the Census Olllco
has, to use a homely expression, been
"lipped up the back" by the press in
various quarters for alleged dishonest
manipulation of facts and figures,
fc'ome of tbete kicks were vigorous, but
thty wore as the kicks of n Shetland
colt ns compared with the mule kicks
that New York city Is now making.
Mayor Grant nnd the newspapers over
thtro are fairly frothing at the mouth.
They claim that something like 130,000
2fcv Yorkers were not counted by Mr.
Porlct's enumerators, nnd that they
were left out of tho enumeration fur
ptittly political reasons to keep that
illv from tending another Democrat or
In o to Congress, to keep out Increased
Democratic representation In the State
Lcplslature, and to give the Republi
cans a chance to Kpical fraud, If. In
'O'.', the Democrats get too many ballots
In the loxis In tho city for tbe rural
Hcpubllcans to overcome. The angry
Mayor and the angry newspapers want
n new counl, and swear by the groat
hoin spcon and General Jackson that
thty will have It.
And while Kow York Is thus agi
tated, along comes Philadelphia with
another kick. The good Quakers de
clare that they have been "thrown
down" by Superintendent Porter nnd
his imlosarles. Hut they don't say any
thing about political trickery. It looks
as though Doss (juay Is going to hare a
pretty tough time of it in keeping the
irood Quakers from dumping his tmn
Delainatcr Into a sink-hole; but for
ordinary emergencies they have enough
llepubllcans over there, and they are
not bothered on that score. Ttiey jutt
didn't get enough people counted to
head off Chicago. They think they
ought to have something like 100.000
mi re. That would do the business for
the windy lake town, ami tbey want
Superintendent Porter to elve them
another count and figure Chicago Into
MK. CHILDS' STATEMENT.
'Whether the Superintendent will re
count either New York or Philadelphia
cannot be found out just yet. Of
course, everybody about the Census
Office who has authority to speak Insists
that justice will be dose, and that the
claim of the New Yorkers that politic
bad anything to do with omissions (If
there were omissions to the extent
claimed) is without foundation. On
Ibis subject Acting Superintendent

"In commenting upon the results
reached iu tbe present census It Is very
necessary that some attention should be
paid to not only tbe requirements but
the limitations of tbe Census law. Fur
thermore, tbe fact should not be lost
sight of that hardly a year before the
i-eusus was required to be taken there
wa no Census Office fa existence,
and that the present Surwriuleudent,
when he qualified ami entered uooa
duty, found but one representative of
tbe Tenth Ceeaus, so that the orqanUa
liou ai.d tquipweat of the oiUce was
made anew, ami at the same time the
great work of preparing for the eeasus
of this vast country was tarried on.
Besides the selection of experts for
the investigation of special mat
ters the preUmiruuy work ieci
deatal to the enumertioa was
perfected, the country divided into
supervisors' districts, ami 175 super
visors agmoi&ted. These supervisors'
districts were subdivided into eumera
tlou districts, sad an army of enumera
tors, aggregating over -W.uuO, were ap

schedules were being printed ami dU
tribuled to the enumerator b throughout

Politics cut no flgureln the selection

porter. "In the selection of expert special
agents and chiefs of dlvkin, each
having charge of some work of prime
Importance, the questions of technical
knowledge, administrative ability,
known reputation for experience In
special branches and general compe
tence, were alone considered. Partisan
politics had no place whatever in the
determination of asslcnments to these
important positions. These men the
men who form what may be designated
as the oillclsl cabinet of the Superin
tendent are many of them of opposite
political faith from that of the head of
the bureau. Kven the protection shib
boleth, to which Superintendent Porter
is such an earnest devotee, weighed
nothing when he made choice of his of
ficial family. Ills assistants and right
lirnd men comptlsc all classes of polltl
cal belief, from free Irado to protection,
from Democracy to Republicanism.
Important Investigations bavobeen as
signed to political opponents of tbe
Superintendent, and tho result of their
care and scrutiny has fully justified
tho assertion that partisanship has had
no tilacc In the woik of the Census Bu
reau." snw yoiik's claims.
"What have you to sav regarding

"In the agitation roncernlng the re
sults of tho census In New York city It
ehould be remembered that prior to the
actual work of enumeration n most
savaco assault was made by tho news
paper press of that city upon the con
stitutionality of certain census inquiries,
which were, however, provided for by
the Census net, and which, under tho
law, it was the plain duty of the Super
intendent to sec were properly nnswered.
This newspaper opposition went so far
ns to advise the cltlons of New York
to refuse to answer tbe Inquiries of the
ccntus enumerators beyond a certain
point. The result of this agitation was
to make the enumeration of tho city of
New York n much more perplexing
one than It ordinaiily would be, which
at all times must bo n most dilllcutt
utdcrtnklng. The results shown by
the so called police count may or may
not I o facts. Tho police who wore de
tailed for this purpose went forth under
Instructions and with the avowed pur
pntctogetuioie people than had been
rbtalned In thcgcner.il enumeration, and
It is fair to presume that In the progress
of tlit-lr work there never was any doubt
in their mind ns to whether or not a
person should ho enumerated by them,
but that In every Instance tbe name
was taken without regard to the length
of l!mo tho person may have claimed a
recldcnceat the place where enumerated.
Hut even allowing that the count In
June was a bad one, It does not inval
idate tlio entire census, but It only goes
to (bow that in so large r city ns New
York it is almost impossible, with the
very best enumerators, to take a census
that would be entirely satisfactory, and
that, wlili tho conditions surrounding
the June enumeration, it is a matter of
n good deal of wonder that so good a
census was postlble. The census In
quiries, as well as the time of taking
tbe census, are specified In the
Census act, and la the prepara
tion of the schedule It was not
competent for tbe Superintendent to
ignore the law in these respects, his
only duty In tbe premises being to see
that tbe provisions of the law were
carried out to the best of his ability. In
so great an undertaking, no matter who
may be tbe Superintendent, of however
great ability or however widely known
for his achievements in statistical work,
it is a difficult mutter to take a perfect
census, and entirely impossible to have
It satisfacturj lu all resjierts. I do not
think that there has beeu a single cen
sus ever taken, under whatever auspices,
either State or National, thnt there has
not been a great hue ami cry, for a time
at least, as to Its accuracy and general
trustworthiness. It has usually been
fount, however, upon proper investi
gation, that In about 93 per cent, of
these cases there u no real ground for
complaint, and that the census has been
proven to be accurate and worthy of
"What, in your opinion, Mr. Child,
will be done in the Jualler will a sew
count be made?"
"This is a questkm that it is Impos
sible fur me to answer until we have
some evidence that the eaumarathw
made in June is Imperfect. I believe it
to have beee a good ami fair eeumefa
liou of the city, ami until the atriee W
futulsbed with the evidence that U,
the tcbtdules or books coaUlumg the
smes of the inhabitants as enumerated
by the police for the purpose of com
parison with the schedules la this
oHice Bothieg decisive will be done.
I am ae yet without aey iaformaUoe as
to whether this evldeece will be fur
nished or eot, ami of course, ae iati
mated heretofore, nothing will he tloae
looking to a recouat until it is re

have been a bloody sequel to tbe I'rice

vi sled yesterday morning by the dis
arming of a number of mon. The
killing of Price by Mis Rooth has en
gendered much bitterness, and threats
have been made by both sides. When tbe

male relatives of both parlies to tbe
shooting were present, ami the ugly
J-'oks eschaaged between some of

FINE WEATHER AND A SPLENDID TRACK.
Ample leiliRg Facilitta for the Spwa-
lalen Many Tipsters Pfwent,
All Big Fil.
The AVashlnglon Jockey Club Inaugu
rated Its fall meeting this afternoon
under the most favorable auspices. The
weather was all that could he desired,
ami the large Crowd present abundantly
lestlfletl to the popularity of the new
racing association which Is providing
AVashlngton with Mteh excellent sport.
The track was never In better con
dition. Its sandy soil greedily drank
up the rain that fell last night, and al
though the course was not fast, yet it
could hardly have been better.
The flags on the grand stand and
stables matte a prct'y sleht, and the
guidons on the steeplechase course,
which blared the path for the jumper!,
loaned kaleidoscopic charm to the
natural beauties of theicenery.
Tho early trains carried out a large
number of spectators, among whom
were many ladles. Their bright nnd
pretty costumes made n beautiful scene.
When the call for the tlrt race sounded
the grand stand was tilled and there
was n (urging, bustling crowd about
iho betting booths. Twenty-four book
makers nupplled the wants of tbe pub
lic, while there were French muluals
for those who prefer to taking chances
on a division of gain rather than know
what will win in tbe books.
The omnipresent and irrepressible
"tipster" wss out In force. I'mm the
depot to the grounds, ami at every step,
almost, one ran tip against the gentle
men with Mtpvilnr turf acumen, ami
many was the vl llm that fell Into their
nets, l'ew. Indeed, escaped them, nod
after a puson had purchased a doen

The improvements have been told In

to the grand stand was the most wel

autumn wind from the occupants with

The card was an excellent one. Five
races were down for decision, ami the
fields in all of them was large, thus In
suring eood sport even Lad there been
no cracks among them.
The big water jump In front of the
grand stand looked dangerous, and
many a veteran turfite predicted that
many a steeplechaser would come to
grief over it before tbe meeting closed.
There was considerable kicking
this morning over tbe hook-making
privileges. It appears that Mr. pu
mas, who has the betting privilege, hat
gone to New York He agreed to limit
the number of book makers, and last
night, when there was an invasion of
Knights of tbe pencil from New York,
who bad not alremly contracted for
space, they found themselves shut out.
Ibeywereat tbe track this morning,
endeavoring to connect, but, as Mr,
Pitruas was out of town, nothing could

Another agreeable feature of the
meeting was the enterprise displayed Is
laying odds os tbe races at J.IUsbeth.
The book makers are a thrifty lot, ami
as a wire had bees rus eossectlsg the
