It was rumored again yesterday that tbe employes of the V.tlo Railroad bail deckled on a strike on account of the refusal of the company to grant tbe demands of tbe rmployeg' Federation for the ten-hour work day and extra pay for overtime. A ice-President Fellon told a reporter that be bad sot beard from tbe men and be did not think there would be any trouble. lie paid no attention to rumors whatever. ftiperlntendeal Barrett, at Jersey City, said that no strike was expected, and that the men would not go out.

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. ritlLADKLriUA'S KIlK. 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 third place. 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 Cbllds ssltl to u representative of Thk Chitic "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 posAteuT At the same time milltoas of schedules were being printed ami dU tribuled to the enumerator b throughout the louairy.

Politics cut no flgureln the selection of these men?" Interrogated the re 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 the claims of Mayor Grant nnd other New Yorkers?" "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 credence." "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 ceived."

The paper strongly ad viics its frlemls to give special attention to propagamilsm among the rural populations, while not neglecting to spicad Ibe doctrine among the laboring classes In the cities. The International character of the paper Is seen In its first number, in the fact that tho main editorials nre signed by Schlppel, the leader of the "Young German Socialists." and by Lafarguo, one of Ihe chiefs of the French Social ists.

Interesting, Exciting and Peristal Gel- loqui8 Suepteieus Members Find a Reperter and "Fire" Him. The first rrgular meeting of the Ohio Republican Association since September SO was hcttl last night nt Grand Army Hall, with Acting Superintendent of Census Cbllds in the chair and Mr. Curtis acting tcrctary. The meeting was well attended, the club having quite n larec membership. After the reading of the minutes and election of new members a member arose nnd wanted to know If the serpennt-at-aims had admitted any outsiders to tho room. "1 eco the door wide open," he added, "and I don't think it bt to let our proceedings be known to the public. 1 don't think we would like to have a rcpottcr rf n Dimccrallc paper In the room." Colonel Grosvenor replied that the meeting had been advertised as n public one, both for gentlemen and ladles. a ritKct'itson or kovrsiiibu. "Hut 1 don't see the public coming In," retorted the gentleman. "Well, I den't think there are any hero but members," said Colonel Gros venor, and tbe colored sergeant-at-nrm clofed tbe door. The nest thing done was the reading by the chairman of a letter from a porson In Columbui.

This riuery seemed to strike one of the members as beln very much out of place. "Suppose," be sakl, "that this question of boodle should get Into the papers?" "I don't think there are any reporters here," replied Colonel Grosvenor, "and even If ft did get Into the papers it would not create much of a commo tion. I tell ynu," continued Die Colonel, "that this question cf boodle Is a very Important matter." "Hut." said one of ibe members. "let It be: Not how much boodle we have, lmt bow many members have con tributed." XOT KXOl'flU. "All right, then," said the Colonel, and the number who had contributed Has announced. The number was not ratlsfaetory to the Colonel, because the amount on hand did not reach his Idea of a "starter" for campaign boodle, which be said ought to be $ 1.000. He then proposed a plan by which the clerks In tbe Departments could be reached. Continuing, the Colonel said: "I will make a motion that Mr. Mayse ami Judge Ury be appointed by the club to get some one to see tbe clerks out side of tbe Departments ami at their homes." A WBT Bl.AJ.KET. This resolutive on the spur of the moment was adopted, after which, however, a member sprung Ihe Civil Service Jaw, which fell like a wet blanket oa tbe uuetiag ami gave rUe to considerable debate.

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 "tip" csidsand found them alt dllTerenl he knew as much regarding the proba ble winner as he did before he started. Rut men will buy tips ami so these gentry flourish. The improvements have been told In Thk Chitic heretofore. The glass end to the grand stand was the most wel come, Tiowever, for it kept the chilly autumn wind from the occupants with out Interfering with their enjoyment of tbe sport. 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 le done. I'pos bis return, however. It Is expected that aa arrangement will be made by which those who desire it ean ebtain stands. 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 two tricks, those who wasted to bet oa tbe out t f tows races bad ample oppor tunity to do so.
