A petition has been lodged with Attorney-General
Davtea. requesting h:ra to 1-gin proceeding? to de
termine whether the Xew-York Fire Insurance
Exchange (s not violating the anti-trust laws Of
the State. i Tanenbaum, Son & C0., -insurance
brokers, have made forma! charges against the
exchange, contending- that the Institution In its
efforts to control the Insurance business .has made
Itself amenable to process by the State authorities.
It Is charged that the officials of the Exchange
recently determine! to discipline the Tar.enbaum
firm borause of the giving of rebates. The firm.
It seems, has offered to put sprinklers and protect
ing w«jj In large business houses, provided that
the handling- of all insurance was given to It for
a period of rive years. Protests wet made by
other broken against this method of getting in
surance, and finally the Tanenbaums were warned
to rilsror.unue the practice on the ground that they
were practically giving business men a rebate. It
would appear that th<* warning »- a « not heeied, in
asmuch as subsequently all the insurance com
per i*-s la the Exchange were forbidden to do busl
nesa with I. Tanenbaum, Son & Co.
Ther»- are six insurance companies in New-York
rot belonging tf> the Kxchange, and recently the
Exchange adopter} a rule that business one by
th«se companies should not be reinsured by any
comr-ar.y in the Exchange. This action wiis re"
ga.rif-A by the Tanenbaums as a trust method
which discriminated iierainst the six concerns re
ferred to. In consequence, the. Attorney-General
has been appealed to to Investigate the operations
Of the Exchange.

"The statistics which have appeared In several
newspapers." said Census Supervisor Wilbur yes
terday, "are the results of pure luuwort and
nothing more. I suppose there will be a lot of this
kind of business for some time to come. People
want to know how many persons there are in this
city and elsewhere, and they will naturally down
every story th^t comes nlonß.
Now. there has been no Information given out
by me. and I do not know who could have any to
Elve except myself. Rut at this -tins" of the work
I do not know myself what the figures are. Up to
last nij?ht only seven hundred books had been
handed In by enumerators from their several dis
tricts, and six hundred and twenty of these mint
be examined, added to. subtracted from and other
wise rectified.
"The Federal statute In reference to the taking
of a census specially provides that any enumerator
or supervisor who Is found furnishing- information,
unless authorized by the Director-General, is guilty
of ■ misdemeanor, punishable by a fine. In addi
tion to this each census supervisor has received a
special request from Mr Merriam that all statis
tics be withheld until they have been definitely
determined, when they will be Riven out from
Washington. Whatever statistics, therefore, that
have appeared In regard to the census of this city
haye been the work of men who have deduced a
proportionate Increase In population from one
definite period to another, and then given figures
fir the year ISM to accord with this ratio.
"The work which has remained over the allotted
period of fifteen days is polng on smoothly." Mr
Wilbur continued. "Nine hundred lists out of the
total 1.100 hive row been handed in. and I expect
the balance on Monday and Tuesday. If an enu
merator wishes an extra day or two to collect
i larks or catch those who have thus far escaped
him. I pive my permission freely. Then there are
others who want to copy over some of their lists
which had been written first In pencil or with a
leaky peti.
"Orly three arrests have been made thus far. and
I expect that two more will be made on Monday.
Durinp the last census there were forty arrests."
"Who are the persons to be arrested." was asked.
"Cranks," was the reply. "They refuse to give
the enumerators their names because they are. in
the popular phrase, 'Agin the Government.' These
people say that such information as the enumer
ators ask Is their own personal property, and the
Government is going too far to demand It."
An occurrence on the East Side yesterday served
to bring out the truth of Mr Wilbur's statement.
An enumerator had finally captured a man for
whom he had been hunting for the last week. When
the elusive man was asked to 1511 out the blank
-handed him. he said:
•"This country is the same as those in Europe
which are still bound in the chains of feudal
thought and custom. William the Conqueror had
his Doomsday Book and now President McKinley
must have his. We are going back to the Dark
Ag^s. that is all. No. young man. you are a.« bad
a? the rest of th^m. I refuse to let myself become
so bound down to this Government as to let it
pry Into my private affairs."
No amount of argument could persuade the poor
man that the whole Nation had not entered into
a conspiracy to make him Its victim. I* rom ln
quirv -nere. it was learned that the m in had
only lived In th.. country nine years, and had
several times be?n confine.l In an asylum.
A woman came to Mr Wilbur yesterday and
■aid she was looking tor her parents. When ask*d
her maiden name she said she didn't know it. S.i ■>
had been brought up In a foundling; hospital, sha
said, and had been married twice. The second
marrlagp. she said, was one which had been In
every way blessed. Bhe had attained to social
rank fnd considerable wealth, but both of these
had become nothing to her as compared with the
d»sire to find her father and mother. She had
never revealed the facts of her birth to her pres
ent husband, because she feared she might lose
his affections. When the Supervisor heard this
last avowal he told the woman her first duty was
to her husband, and that it would be by far the
wisest policy to tell him everything first.
"Oh. I can't do it. I can't do it." the woman
answered, as If ready to cry, and hurried out of
the office.
Twenty of the twenty-five special enumerators
who have been employed in rectifying the lists as
handed In were discharged yesterday.

Already the comln* of July 4 is belnp heralded
by the small boy with occasional explosions of fire

ers have been busy in anticipation of the next In

demand for n^ise producers. Fulton-st. was lined
for several blocks yesterday afternoon with ped
lerp, many of whom did a rushing business selling
a new invention in this line. It consists or"
about as big a.« a large marble, incrusted on the
OUtsidfl with some preparation that looks like
plaster of purls. When the ball Is thrown down
hard upon a stone pavement the minute part of
this Incrustation whtch hits the pavement first is
exploded by ooncu^smn with a loud and satisfactory
noise. This can be repeated atraln and again until
all the incrusted matter Is worn off the hall. This
new toy seems to be harmless and cheap, and Is
"catching on" in a lively style.
Manufacturers say their factories are running
day and night in order to keep up with the demand,
which is brisk in all parts of the country. It ia
said that $2,000,000 will not cover the orders taken
by the well known rtrms tn this city alone, and
$.1,000,000 would not be too big an estimate to place
on the value of the fireworks which will be con
sumed on July 4 next in all parts of this land and
w Insular possessions.

Ing statem»r I was
The estate consisted of a bull ling at No. 9 Him
Place. Brooklyn, now uppraistsl at £2,000, and per
sonal property valued at 120.000 or £5,000. The
New- York Life Insurance Company holds a mort-
on the Brooklyn property for CO.OOO. Miss
ones alleges that her signature to the mortgage
and to a transfrr of 125.000 worth of the personal
property was obtained by undue influence through
her brother With th» -...'• mortgage
and the personal property she asserts that her
brother bought his seat on the Stock Exchange.
She says that she ha.s received nothing from the
estate since thai tline.
Willard 11. Jones, when seen by a Tribune re
porter yesterday afterrihon, said:
My father died when I was twelve years old.
The personal property referred to win expended for
the living exp«-n.sis and education of my sister and
myself. In regard to the mortgage, my sister has
received her full share of the proceeds and I
have her vouchers to that effect. As to her deten
tion at th».' House of the G-ooU Shepherd, she wan
placed there four years ago by the order of the
Court upon the advice and by the certificates of
her own physicians. Whether she was detained
beyond the legal period I am unable to say. as I
am not acquainted with the law upon the subject.
I was not responsible for her stay there. She ham
received all the estate to which she is entitled, and
until last July, when she instituted this suit. I
supporti-d her besides. The case has not yet been
placed on the calendar.
