There Is quite a dllTcrcncc, a ludicrous
dirtcrenco between tho haiidsomo stone
building at Thirteenth street and tho Ave.
nue, whero tho Census Ofllco used to be,
and the llltlo 15x13 room lu tho top story of
tho dingy brick bulldlng.nt Eighth nnd (1
streets, whore It Is now.
The building ts an old one, with low Iron
posts connected with pieces ot gas-plpo,
forming a fenco about tho front of It, and a
low flight of granlto steps leading up to
tho doorway, with Its llttlo squaro portico
over It. It was a handsomo residence years
ago, but for somo tlmo pat tho Intorlur
Department hat rented It for Iho overflow
of clerks from tho big marblo building
across G street from It.
A narrow, crooked stairway leads up
through tho second story to tho thtrd,whero
tho Census Ofllco Is located.
Thcro aro four other rooms on this floor,
but you can easily tell which Is the Census
Ofllco by a llttlo tin sign tacked on tho door
to. the room at tho southeast corner of tho
building. Tho sign reads:
i V i
j ' JlErAItTMENT OF Thri INTEIttOIl, j
UNITED STATES CENSUS OFFICE. j
And there Is lust ouc desk In thu Census
Ofllco and Mr. Wordlo sits at It. Tho Cen
sus llureau as a separate, Individual bureau,
was abolished years ago. Hut tho Interior
Department has an ofllclal, yclept tho Cen
sus Clerk, nnd Mr. Wordlo Is tho present
ono. His duties aro for tho most part at
tending to correspondence rclatlug to tho
lost and next census, and tho compilation
of a small perpetual census of minor mut
ters relating to tho work of tho Interior De
partment. Tho publication ot the tenth census has
but recently been completed, that Is, as
nearly as ft ever will be. When thoy
commenced to take tho tenth census the
work was begun on a splendidly compre
hensive plan. Data was to bo collected on
somo fifty different subjects.- Hut when
tho work of compilation and publication
was begun Congress wassooverawcd-livthe
magnltudo ot tho Work and tho magultiida
of tho cost, that It decided to abandon tho
compilation of over half tho subjects on
which data had been gathered. And the
last of tho twenty-thrco big octavo volumes
that contain tho tenth census havo but re
cently been printed.
The eleventh census will bo much more
limited lu Its scopo. Data will be gathered
on only about a quarter as many subjects
as wcro embraced lu the enumeration of tho
last census, and . people who know say
that tho woik of compilation will probably
bo finished In a year, and that the census
complcto will probably be published lnsldo
ot two years from the time work Is com
menced. Until tho Superintendent of
mo Vycusus is appointed iuo arrange
ments and preliminaries to tho taking
ot the census are uncertain. There Is con
siderable quiet competition for tho super
Intcndcncy with Its $0,000 salary. Tho ap
pointment should bo mado soon, as tho act
providing for tho eleventh census says that
tho work ot enumeration must beglu on
the first Monday iu Juno.
Of courso thcro Is a great deal of pre
paratory work to be dono boforo this, and
there Is none too much tlmo for tho super
intendent to organlzo his ofllco and select
tho forco ot enumerators and supervisors.
Tho act provides for ono or moro super
visors ot census for each Stato and Terri
tory, to bo designated by tho Secretary of
tho Interior on tho recommendation of tho
Superintendent of the Census and to bo ap
pointed by tho President, but It Is provided
that Iho total number shall not exceed 175
in all. Thcso supervisors have chargo of
tho appointment of enumerators, and as
soon as each ono has completed tho census
of tho division he Is in chargo of lo tho sat
isfaction of tho Secretary ot tho Interior
ho Is to bo paid $1-5, and In addition $1 for
each 1,000 of population lu thickly settled
regions aud $1.40 In sparsely settled lo
calities. As yet, even tho location ot tho Census
Ofllco Is not decided on. In fact, until tho
superintendent Is appointed, nothing will
bo settled. Tho exact scopo ot thoccusus
also remains to bo determined.
A NEW rEATUIlE.
A new feature ot tho census will bo tho
special soldier schedule. A census wIlLbo
mado to show tho number of soldiers and
sailors who are survivors ot tho lato war,
and ulso tho number ot soldiers' and sail
ors' widows. Tho census also will show tho
number of negroes, mulattocs, quadroons
and octoroons. Much Is left to tho discre
tion of thoSccrctary of tho Interior nnd tho
Superintendent of tho Census In deciding
what shall bo tho subjects considered In tho
census, but Congress made Its scopo very
much more limited than that of ten years
THE EXTENT OF THlf CELL'S TAKINH.
Tho census act says that tho only
volumes that shall bo prepared and pub
lished In connection with tho census shall
lelato to population and social statistics
elating thereto, tho products of manu
factories, mining aud agriculture, mortality
and vital statistics, valuation and public
Indebtedness, recorded Indebtedness, aud
to statistics relating to railroad corpora
tions, Incorporated oxpress, telegraph and
Insurance companies, a list of tho names,
organizations, and length ot service of sur
viving soldiers, sailors and marines, aud
wlilon sot soldiers, sailors and marines.
Probably not ucarly so many clerks will
bo employed In tho census ofllce In tho
preparation ot the eleventh census, as
wero In tho tenth, nnd tho act provides that
clerks leaving other Government Depart
ments to work In tho census ofllco shall
not be ousted from their former positions.
Nor will tho work last ucarly so long on
tho next census ns it did on tho last.
Just as soon as tho President sees fit to
appoint a superintendent tho Census Ofllco
will probably be organlzod, for tho appro
priation will bo Immediately available.
Tho schedules of Inquiry will follow tho
general plan of thoso of ten years ago, but
bo much more modified lu their scope. The
Secretary of tho Interior Js empowered by
Congress to make such changes as ho sees
lit. Tho cntlro cost of tho census must full
within 0,100,000, exclusive ot tho cost ot
printing aud engraving.
Tho many positions In tho Census Ofllco
that nro exempt from tho operations ot the
Civil Scrvlco Law will mako It a very
Mecca for ofllco-scekcrs. Thcro will bo a
lot ot expert enumerators to gather
statistics on various Industries, aud thoso
havo their traveling expenses paid, and
there will bo plenty ot applicants for tho
I'LUNTV 01' OI.E1IKS WAITING,
When tho superintendent ts appointed ho
will havo no difficulty In obtaining all the
clerks for whom money has been appropri
ated. Tho twcnty-threo-volumo census
furnished employment to nearly 1,500
clerks at ono time, and tho number grad
ually dwindled year by year, as tho work
ucarcd completion, until about a year ago
tho lost lot of clerks employed on It was
dffcharged and now Mr, Wordle In his
llttlo room on tho top floor ot tho old
building, on Eighth and G streets, supports
thu dignity of tho United States Census
Hut all this will ho changed In a fow
weeks. From n single room with n slnglo
clerk In It tho Census Ofllco will grow to a
big building full ot busy pconlo who will,
a couple ot years later, toll us what a
glorious uajlou we aro,

Mr. Sparrow's Fnhiim- Tcslliiiiniy
When the Lydecker court-martial met
this morning It required only fifteen min
utes to read Iho rccotd of yesterday's pro
eeedlngs. Then, upon motion of Colono
Dodge, tho court retired to an ante-room
and held a lengthy consultation upon a sub
ject which was not announced before ro
tiring. Upon their return to tho court
loom, tho Judgc-advocato announced that
tho court had decided not to admit ns testi
mony before this court tho testimony given
before tho Military Court of Inquiry by
A. J. Sparrow, tho expert "sounder,"
who Investigated tho extent of tho bad
work In tho tunnel. Ho was placed upon
tho stand and questioned by tho udgo-ad-vocale.
Mr. Sparrow detailed tho system
of rrscortolnlmr tlio faulty work In a tunnel
by "sounding" thosldcs nnd roof ot tho tun
nel with n steel rod mado for tho purpose.
,Ho testified that ho was employed last
November by Major Lydecker to cxamlno
Iho tunnel. Ho sounded 14,700 feet of tho
tunnel, and In thai space !J00 holes In tlio
lining wcro made. Tho ojienlngs wero
made where tho sounder Indicated futtllv
work. Tho cavities found abovo the roof
nnd behind tho walls of (ho tunnel varied
lu size. A great many of them wero from
8 to 10 feet long and from 1 to I feet high.
In many Instances tho cavities wero larger.
1 ho largest cavity was 183 feet long. Tlio
notes ot their examination wero admitted
as evldcneo before tho Court, subject lo tho
right of Major Lydecker to object to their
value os evidence.
"What Is your opinion of thocoudltlon of
Iho tunnel?" nsKcd tho Judgo-advocato.
"Tho majority of Iho brick work Is fairly
well laid as far as I could oxamlnc. Tho
packing hack ot the lining Is In a loose, dry
state, and thcro arc extensive lengths where
iuo imcituiK is lacking cniirmy'
"Aro any portions of the
portions ot tho packing
"Thcro aro a fcw'plaecs In iho tunnel
where It Is quite solid, but thcro Is no ox
tcnslvc, continuous length that could bo
Question by tho Court:
"Do'you think that tho tunnel should bo
rebuilt before water Is turned Into It?"
"No; I do not."
After a recess taken for luuch tho court
reassembled at 1 o'clock, when J. 11.
Quackcnbush of tho firm of Hcckwlth Jc
Quackcnbueb, contractors on tho tunnel
work, was colled as a witness. In answer
to questions by tho Judgo-advocato tho
witness explained tho contracts hetwecu
his firm and tho Government and betweou
his firm and tho sub-contractors.
Witness stated that his firm has offered
upon several occnslons to mako good tho
bad work In tho tunnel, dono durlug 1888.

, London, .March 27.--John Ilrlglit dlel
at 8:30 o'clock this morning.
Mr. Ilrlglit' end was peaceful nnd his
physicians say Hint It was painless. Ho
had remained lu n comatose condition sluco
yesterday afternoon nnd died without re
gaining consciousness. All his family wero
present nt his death.
Iu tho Houso ot Commons to-day Mr.
W. It. Smith, the Government leader, with
much emotion referred lo tho dealh of Mr.
Hrlght. Mr. Smith said that ho would
p6stpono his remarks on Mr. Hrlght until
next Friday, when Mr. Gladstone, who, was
called to Scotland by tho death othls
brother, could bo present.
Mr. John Morley Ihanked Sir. Smith for
his consideration In regard to desiring Mr.
Gladstone's presence and said that tho
latter, who was tho lifelong filcnd of Mr.
Hnght, would be greatly gratified.
John Hrlght was bom ntGrecnbank, In
Lancashire, England, November 10, 1811.
Ills family had been for several generations
members ot tho Society ot Friends, or
"Quakers," nud tho characteristics ot John
Hrlght may bo traced to Iho influence ot
that religious body. When ho wns a llttlo
more than 15 years old ho Jolued his father
In his eotton-splntilng factory, which was
ono of Iho earliest lu that regfou. Ho early
displayed an Interest In public affairs.
When only 10 he began to speak at tcm
peranco meetings near Rochdale.
Ills ability ns nu orator was eoon mani
fested. Ills earlier speeches wcro wrlttou
out nnd committed to memory, but ho
abandoned IhAt plan later and merely pre
pared an outlluo of his remarks. Ho spent
eight months traveling lu tho East and
lectuicd upon his oxpcilcnco on his return.
Ills discussion of tho question of national
education lu 1835 brought him In coutaet
with Richard Cobdcu. Their Intimacy
grow Into strong fellowship during tho
great social movement which followed.
When tho Aull-Coru Law Loaguo was
formed Mr. Hrighl's name stood 6cco:id on
(he list. During all this agitation -Mr.
Ilrlglit attended to his dally duties as a
manufacturer. In 1839 ho married Miss
Elizabeth Prlcstman, who died two years
later. Mr. Cobdeu urged him to doroto all
his energies toward tho repeal of tho corn
laws, and Into this movement ho entered
lth all his heart.
In 1843 ho was elected to Parliament, and
on August 7 delivered his first speech there.
In tho agitation that followed Mr. Hrlght
took an actlvo port, aud tho repeal was
largely duo to his efforts.
A movement favoring limiting tho legal
day for factory operatives to ton hours, en
gaged his oppositlou, Mr. Hrlght holding
that workmeii and employers should bo left
frco to regulato their mutual relations. 1 la
was ro-cleetcd to Parliament, hut with n
smaller majority, on account of this action.
Ho then turned his attention to Ireland,
nnd urged that tho principles ot frnc-trado
bo applied to tlio Industries of tho Island.
Ho Joined Mr. Cobdeu In 1840 in his ef
forts for International arbitration, ami par
ticipated In the poaco congresses thou hold.
John Hrlght stood forth conspicuously
during the civil war In Amcrlcn, In defense
of the eauso of tho Union. Although his
business suffered from Iho war, ho steadily
refused to old tho Southern Confederacy.
Upon tho closo of tho civil war ho re
newed his efforts for tho oxtenslon of tho
electoral franchise, and had tho satisfaction
of seeing many reforms adopted, tho dis
establishment of tho Irish church, tho
Irish Laud Act of 1S70 and tho Elemoutary
Whllo Mr. Gladstono was premier lu 187.1
and In lfEO, Mr. Hrlght became chancellor
of tho Duchy ot Lancaster. When tho Gov
ernment began tho Egyptlon war ho re
signed and remained Independent to his
Death nf Congressman Mahiincy.

where ho has been sick ever sluco tho sec

Tlio correspondents of tho lliooklyn
papers, Mho wcro down stairs In tho hotel
lobby, apprehended tho worst, aud, within
n minute, tho news of tho Congressman's
death was flashed over tho wires to his
homo papers in lliooklyn. Mr. Ma
honey's illness has been long and tedious
and bo has suffered a great deal, though,
for a largo part of thu time, ho was un
conscious. Inaugural Ion day ho was about iu
thoeblllyralu for several hours and caught
a severe cold. Tho next day ho was not
well, but ho was up nud about attending to
business. On tho Uth ho was too 111 to leave
his room aud ho grew steadily worso until
to-day, when ho died.
Dr. Sowers, who attended tho dead Con
gressman, said this morning that Mr, Ma
honey had Intestinal catarrh aud that, from
exposure on Inauguration day, ho caught a
cold that developed luto tho pneumonia,
which enused his death. Tho Imiuedlato

The 1lilers Who 1'lnttml Mr. (lar
San' Antonio, Tex., March 20. It Is
privately learned that tho dctectlvo ngoncy
that by accident learned of tho conspiracy
of Mexican outlaws to attempt tho capture
of Mr. Robert Giuiclt, the wealthy ox-prcs-Ident
of the Haltlmoro and Ohio Railroad
Company, has taken steps to further In
vestigate the matter. It Is believed that
tho Mexicans, who wcro overheard In the
saloon discussing the villainous plot, bo
long to Iho suma gang who some months
ago attacked and attempted 'to kidnap a
wealthy Englishman on a hunting trip on
tho Mexican border ot tho Rio Grande.
Whllo the regular pollco authorities ot San
Antonio declare that they know nothing
ot tho conspiracy to selzo Sir. Garrett,
tho AmrriVcm correspondent has private
and tellable Information that such a con
spiracy was discovered, and that tho de
tective agency has received additional In
formation from an agent on tho border con
taining tho talk ot tho drunken Mexicans
In the saloon. It was by tho merest clianeo
that tho detective happened to overhear tho
conversation ot tho Mexicans liithe saloon.
Tho men wcro strangers hero, and tho saloon
proprietor did not know their names. He,
however, has since informed the dctectlvo
that tho samo fellows were lu his saloon a
short tlmo before Christmas, aud that tho
very next day n stranger was hold up near
Ibis city and robbed ot sovcral hundred
ilollnts. This saloon Is ouo of tho lowest
resorts In town, and frequented by Mexi
cans of tho worst character.
These Mexican thieves and cutthroats nro
becoming a terror to travelers and peacc
ublo'cltlzens, not ouly of Sail Antonio, but
of many other Texas towns. Two-thirds of
tho ctlmcs committed lu this part of Texas
can bo traced to Mexicans or their worso
companions, the halt-breeds, from over tho
bonier. In fact, their lawless acts havo
been so frequent tho past year that unless
tho Mexican Government adopts more vig
orous measures to break up tho lohhcr

ho forced his way In and demanded his
sweetheart from tho astonished aunt.
Fiitthciniorc, he said that ho had procured
n Hecnsa and Intended to marry tho object
of his affection, dcyilto tho adverso rtlfluc;
of her relatives. Tho locklng-up procesn
was at once Invoked ond tho maiden was
confined to her apartment, hut not before
she had declarcdlicriinalternblodctcrmlna
Hon to marry her bold wooer tho llrst time
that on opportunity presented Itself. Her
defiant maimer necessitated a family eon
clave, and after considerable discussion It
was decided lhat she could bo married to
the man whom sho desired, but that the
ceremony must bo performed In tho presence
of her aunt aud uncle and at once. Every
thing was cairlcd out to tho letter ot tho
iw, but with tho declaration of the min
ister that they wore man and wlfo an un
forsten dlfllculty arose.
Tho aunt who had raised tho bride, hav
ing assumed chargo ot her when a wea
thleg upon tho death other parents, an
nounced emphatically that as tho girl hail
made up her mind to get married sho hail
consented to her wedding with a view to
obvlutlng trouble in the future, but that
was all. Tho girl was under the legal ago
when elio could glvo her conscut, and
should not leave home under any circum
stances. In vain tho newly-made Hcnedlct
plead and promised to conduct himself
property toward his spouso aud her rela
tives. Entreaties were useless, and after
several hours' talk tho brldo was place un
der lock and key again, nnd her husband
was compelled to return alono to his lodg
ings. It Is quite likely, however, that legal
proceedings will bo resorted to In order to
compel tbo rolcaso of tho young brldo to
her lawful protector, and tho citizens of
North Washington, where the affair oe
cturcd, are fully allvo to the Importance of
this choleo morsel ot gossip.
