PROPOSED CENSUS BUREAU,
A Scheme to Suvo Kxpense by Per
Washington, Jan. IS. The senate
committee on the census today made a
report on the informal hearings held
by It on the bill to establish a perma
nent census bureau, and In connection
with the taking of the twelfth census,
which bill was recommended by Com
Colonel Wright was tho principal
witness examined. He explained the
proposition of ills bill, presenting ar
guments und facts in favor of estab
lishing a permanent census bureau,
stating that the great cost of the elev
enth census $11,500,000 was largely
duo to tho want of preliminary organi
zation, and some of the statistics were,
for the same reason, very Inaccurate,
He recommended a census be taken
every two years of tho manufactures:
thut decennial census be confined to
population nnd productions, and be
taken on April ID, 1'JOO, Instead of June
1 us heretofore, and every ten years
hereafter. In his opinion the statis
tics of population given by t)ie last
census was too large, and he estimated
the total population of the United
States In 1900 at G7,000,000. Ho consid
ered the statistics of homes, farms and
mortgages the most complete and sat
isfactory of any of the various
branches of the eleventh census. Un
der the plans for a permanent census
bureau the result of the decennial cen
sus would make but four or live vol
umes, InHtead of twenty-live tinder the

used language that was anything but
complimentary to the contestant. Prior

policemen to preserve order und he
now appealed to these authorities of the
peace to eject Goldstein. The angry
altercation, between the two men had
attracted the crowd in their direction
and part of It pushed one way, evident
ly overjoyed at the prospect for a free-for-all
light, jvhlle the other half did its
best to push the other way and shove
out of the room.
Mr. McAleer appealed for peace and
the two policemen pushed their way
through the crowd and laying hands on
Hudson unceremoniously ejected him
from the room. Beasley objected to
tills summary pioceedlngs and lie nnd
