Figuring on What the Xext Census
Show Uncle Sara's (idling
(Lexington Leader J
In estimating the population as of
June, 1000, when the ceneus will be
taken, we have figures brought almost up
to date. From the Governors, or other
high ofiicial sources in each of the etates
and territories, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
secured at the close of 1898 an esti
mate of the population of each upon Jan
uary 1, 1899. As only a year and a half
will elapse before the taking of the cen
sus, it is not unreasonable to assume that
the rate of growth shown fiince 1800 will
continue during thie brief remaining
period. On January let last our popula
tion, according to these estimates, was
77,83,m This includes Alaska and In
dian Territory, but not Hawaii, Puerto
Hi co or the Philippines. Making the
proportionate increase, wo get 80,2.yj,082
ai the grand total for the United States
proper in June, 1899.
The population of Hawaii is estimated
at 110,000, based on a census in 1897;
that of Puerto Itico at 900,000, and that of
the Philippines at 8,000,000, both of the
latter estimates being largely guesswork.
Add these, and we have the "imperial"
total of 89.200,082.
Jn a decade Uncle Sam will have grown
from (12,8:51, 900 (census of 1900) to 82,200,.
0S2. about 10 percent. Disregarding the
"colonies," ho will have grown 17,121,182
nearly .''0 per cent.
Our greatest rival in wealth is Great
Britain. Minshall estimates that in 1888
Great Hritain was worth about $40,000,
000,000. Of railroadH, wo had in 1800, of course,
none. In 1890 there were in operation
103,120 miles of railroad, according to
Poor's Mutual. In 1897 there were 182,
919 miles. Assuming the same rate of
increase, there will bo in 1900 191,274
miles. This incrcaso is by no means In
proportion to the growth in wealth, but
is substantial and healthy.
Perhaps the biggest surprises waiting
.for us in tho twelfth census will bo In the
rolativo growth in tlio separate states and
the rearrangement of the list.

of Appeal" to-daj, in an opinion bj Chief
Justice Harelrizz, the -arhoie coart fit
ting, held that the preferred stock of a
bailding and loan association is not en
titled to preference over the common
stock, and that all stockholders, indis
criminately, ehare eqaally in the distrib
ation of the assets of each associations,
in the band of an assignee, in propor
tion to the amounts paid bj them re
spectively on their stock.
The decision was handed down in the
case of J. K. Sam rail and others against
the Commercial Bailding Trust's assig
nee and others, appealed from the Jeffer
son Common Pleas Coart, and is an af
firmance of the opinion of Judge Emmet
Field of that court. The action grew oat
of the assignment, in Jane, 1S07, of the
Commercial Building Trust to the Co
lombia Finance and Trust Company, of
Louisville, and the question was pre
sented in a suit brought for a settlement
of the estate, and the lower court held as
In affirming the judgment Judge Haz
elrigg said: "We fully concur in the
Chancellor's judgment denying any pref
erence to the so-called preferred over the
common stockholders in the distribution
of the assets of the association. The sug
gestion that the appellees have not in
fact paid anything into the concern on
their stock-is guarded against in the or
ders given in the lower court by requir
ing proof of all claims in the usual way
before the Master Commissioner. The
judgment is affirmed."

House of Representatives, hut failed in
the Senate, where the solid Republican
voto was cast against it.

"Woman" Instead of "Lady."
Tho decline in tho popularity of the
term "lady" has been remarked by many
during tho last eight or ton years, but tho
Inclination to substitute the word
"woman" for it has recoived an added
impetus of lato. In Syracuse, N. Y., tho
February mooting of tho "Lady Princi
pals' Association" has, by amending tho
constitution, changed tho namo to
Woman Principals'. Ass6ciation. All
women aotivo in the work of tho day, as
carried on by members of their"sex, pre
fer to bo known under tho broader term
of a dignified and substantial meaning.
We have the exclusive control here of a large manufacturer's output, embracing
fully one hundred different patterns In Tapestries, Brussels, Moquettes, Velveta and
Ingrain. After long and careful consideration we have adopted this method of Car
pet selling for two reasons. First, we can give you a selection in point of quantity,
quality and artistic designing tho Cincinnati markets cannot rival, an impossibility
underother conditions, as we have not tho room (o carry such an enormous stock
as our selection line represents. Secondly, we can sell cheaper, much cheaper, than
under the old method, as the factory carries our stock for us, and we need keep no
reckoning of profit-clipping, remnants and unpopular patterns. Entering upon this
different arrangement in our Carpet business there are three points in which we
determine to excel : Private Patterns, High Grade Goods at Low Prices, Carpet Slak
ing. Think over what this means. First, you need not cover your floor with hack
neyed patterns. On the contrary exclusive and fresh designs are at your disposal.
Second, you need pay no more for the best than poorer grades cost elsewhere.
Third, when the Carpet-Making is entrusted to us, we will have all Carpets machine-stitched;
Bordered Carpets will be faultlessly inhered and sized. No ripped
seams, no puckered corners, the cost no more. We solicit your patronage on this
basis. Orders can be filled within twenty-four hours. Come in and look over our
