Noble jocularly summed up the New
York city census yesterday morning as
follows: "Two and two make four, but
those New York folks would like to make
two and two make five, which they ctu't
do, and thus the matter stands" mean
ing that a census taken in June cannot be
compared with another taken in October.
In ihis connection the following letter is
of Interest. It ia from Acting Superin
tendent of Census Chi I.I to Mayor Grant,
of New York, and refers to a letter re
cently written by the mayor to Chi da.
Wants an Error Corrected.
In the course of this letter Chillis says:
"You state that it appears from the enu
meration taken by the polics force under
the supervision of yourslf and a represent
ative aelectLMl hy me, that there are many
inhabitants of the city of New York who
were not ret nrned by the federal census
There baa been no rcpreientative selected
by me to supervise the enumeration
taken by your police force.- It is proper
that any misapprehension on your part,
and the effect of your statement, should
be corrected without delay, leat it miuht
be deemed therefrom that this bureau
was in anywise responsible for, or bound
by, the enumeration you mention.
Must Have Some Official Facts.
"The right of the people of New York
to be counted accurately and have repre
sentation in congress and in the electoral
college proportionate to their population,
bas not been disputed and needs no asser

mand for an accurate enumeration of t h
city of New York is without the support
of any facts officially known in this office,
and will be considered only when a case is

A Few Things To Re Noted.
'You will please understand that this
bureau bas entire confidence in the enum

the city of New York, and will adhere to
the same until convinced by proper
proofs duly presented that the same is er
roneous, and to a degree that demands a
re-enumeration under the statute in such
case made and provided. You will p ease
further take notice that the work of the
census by ihe national authorities has
proceeded so far that the r.-sult of the
enumeration will be probably announced
within a few days, and that no great de

like a cowboy, and knows every foot of

Kentucky mares across the Arlington

minute before setting out to k-ep an en

last August he received an invitation
from the president to come down to din

argue that it will arouse the Prohibi

Morris, Ilia. Other Criminal Notes.
Charlottk, N. C, Oct 17. News of a
double murder in Allegheny county, this
state, waa received here at a late hour
Thursday night. John Dixon, a prosper
ous young farmer, discovered that an in
timate relation was existing between his
young wife and Marshall Halsey, almost a
stranger in the county. Dixon afewdaye
ago told Halsey of his suspicions and
warned bim that it he did not cease call
ing at bis home while he was away he
would certainly kill him
Followed the Wicked Pair.
Tuesday Dixon was away from home
and on his return he saw his wife leaving
tlie house. She did not see him, but he
got his rifle and followed her at a dis
tance. She went into some woods near
by and her husband watched her. Halsey
came up and Dixon soon had his suspi
cions confirmed. Then he crept slowly
through the thick woods until he was
near enough to Ore, and taking aim he
pulled tbe trigger. The ball took effect
in Halsey's temple and he fell dead by the
aide of his slayer's unfaithful wife. Dixon
then told bis wife that he intended to kill
her also, but ber piteous pleadiugs caused
him to desist.
Justified by the Populace.
He contented himself with pommeling
her with bis fist, and Vclred that tney
would separate by Haley'g dead body,
never to meet again. They parted, each
going in a different direction. Soon tbe
news of the tragedy spread over the
neighborhood, and tbe excitement was in
tense. Everybody, however, justified Dix
on, and swore that they would pull down
the county jail and free him if he should
be arrested. Late in the evening Charley
Halsey, an elder brother of the dead man,
hunted Dixon down and found him at the
house of a friend.
A Duel to the Death.
Malsev pulled out a large revolver to
shoot Dixon, hnt other persons interfered,
saying that if he wanted to fight he
would have to fight fair and give Dixon a
chance. Ten paces were .quickly stepped
off and the two men put in position with
their weapons in theit hands. "Are you
ready" rang out a shrill voice, and the
duellists stood like statues. Then "one,
two, three, fire!" and the two men began
to shoot. Kvery chamber from their pis
tols was emptied.
Fonr Bullets In His Body.
Dixon stood still and watched Halsey,
who began to stagger, and in a few sec
onds fell to the ground and was dead.
Dixon was not touched. Pour of bis fivo
bullets took effect in Halsey's body. Af
ter the duel Dixon was escorted to the
home of his friend. He has not yet been
arrested, and the people of Allegheny
county say no sheriff can take him.
Heretofore he has been a peaceful man
and well known throughout the county.
