The Mayor tn his first letter to tho Superin

The letter was all tbat was sent to the Super

Tho Ccnsus Bureau hal not such Informa
ton a vrll enable I to act Intelligently and
10 such Information Is I given the Secretary
Tho statement made by tho Mayor on Infornin
ton Is found to bo Incorrect Mr Olcott did
not make full nnd detailed reports to tha Gen
us Bureau from day to day This clerk wrote
ettqra to tho Superintendent and stated tho
otal numbers that were announced at the
layers office and made comments on tho
methods there being pursued Those nn
nounosmonts of numbers were nubile The
newspaper reporters were present and Mr
Moott learned tbo results at the same timo
hey lid nnd these appeared In tho New York
ity papers tbo next morning before Mr Ol
eotl letters probably wero read or received
at tbo Census Office ra
I Is I therefore deemed that the Mayors ar >
moutlon Is weak lu both of his assumption
The Census Bureau did not Isve ossumptona
enntlre present to supervise the muulolpal
enaus and the clerk who was there present
to Inform himself ns to the methods adopted
did not make any full and complete reports
urnlshing Information on which the Secretary
cab order a remuneration The Mayor was
bereore not authorized to decline tbo hearing
offered and demand that the Uecrotary Hhall
aotin what would be a most unusual and un
precedented manner Tho law does not InUnd
I or allow It
But It may not be Inappropriate to look
omewhat further Into the vase a 1 stands
tnoe It Is Insisted tbe Uecrotary shall decide
Any other hearing having been refused by tbe
Mayor it may bo Just n well t dispose of the
asp presented
The applicant seems to think that merely b
auso on a census taken bY tbo Mew York
authorities from Hept UU to Oct I 1 appears
a greater result has been found than was
ound by tho United States census taken In
I
June therefoio the June census wasunques
louably Insufficient and unreliable when
akon and a enumeration should bo made
1 Is to be obierred tbat the law required the
en usto be taken In such cities as New York
within two weeks from tho first roW in
June and ot all tho country before the first day
Irst
of July lat This was done nnd so well dote
that other great cltiei have been a I
class content I the season for taking tbe
census Is to be changed they would no doubt
lowovor prefer to participate In any advan
patolBIe
ages thus 1 be granted but the wisdom of the
la1 cannot be discussed It exists and offi
cers must onturc It and all obey It Itcannot
be perverted to advantage of one against Ibo
nterests ot the body ot the people ol the whole
country and it cannot be changed in spirit or
ts legitimate eCfeot by any executive ofllcer
The position therefore tflat the United States
census is correct muet be met by something
more than an assertion that the municipal
census U rlaht and that because It showed
more Inhabitants in New York city In the fall
ot the year than that taken II the early sum
mer does tbo former Is I so evidently wrong aa
to require a recount
t
This conclusion la not apparent A careful
examination and an analysis of the police
census books judging from experienco in like
counts will show great Inaccuracies and ab
solutely fall of any evidence that those
correctly counted were all inhabitants of
tbe city in Juno lat and not ten enumer
ated Also it Is a matter of common obse
rvation that many thousands of people of
te city of New Vorkglve up their abodes In
June of each year forvucatlon or recreation
abroad or in the surrounding country and
many thousands more go to service with them
or iseek employment elsewhere but most of
hem take up a reaidenoe In the city again In
tie al te 1 Is besides n seaport city at which
enter In the months between Jnna and Octo
Der a great many thousand emigrants all ot
whom do not immediately depart The city Is
also occupied In the fall by many visitors who
take up I temporary abode to be abandoned
when the eeason having been scent tbelr af
fairs call them elsewhere Many of them may
have been all probably were enumerated in
tbe United States c nsus In other places
There ts also a natural Increase of population
in onefourth ol a year Ihese are merely sug
gestions drawn from common observation and
experience to show that many facts and rea
son to account for a large Increase might bo
produced on a hearing aid discussion other
than a fault United mates census
I Is apparent that one whoso duty i is to
hold an eten balance In which are to be justly
weighed the interests of tbe whole country
cannot proceed under such circumstances
upon mere presumption and I Is the mcrext
presumption thn the preont demand Is I ba od
upon while tho best ovldence IB withheld The
burden of showing that these otherfacts are
Insufficient to account for tie difference Is
upon tbe nunclpallty Tbe presuniptlon Is In
aor of thu United Blatos census surely
whore those aro to decide under whose direc
tion I nas been taken I It taken when
ton law required I should be br persons as re
quired by tho United States statute differs
from an enumeration made by SOle
ono else and at a later season of the
year It Is I not discredited by this fact
alouo other wellknown fuels being obvious
to account for this difference the alllrmativn
aad burden of proof Is on him urho asserts that
thin dlfferenco Is incompatible with a fair and
sufficient United States census and aneces
miry lementof tbl proof must be evidence
showing tbat those In tie more recant cinsus
were actually Inhabitants of New York city In
June and were not then enumerated a fact
to tie shown In each case by tbe recoid at
least ux there can be no presumption that ono
in tho olty at a certain day waa tliur threo
months before
Anyone who Ignore these serious matter
for inventKAtiun and refufoH to enter ucon a
hearing leaves It lo be concluded that he can
not meet the ret Issue and U wllllug to leave

JOUN W NODLE Secretary
AN INTKIlTirW WITH BSonETiRT KODLr
Beorotary Noble wrote this letter after n final
consultation with Superintendent Porte this
tnnrnlng and after passing through the usual
channels of rod tapeism I was despatched to
the Mayor after the dooartment closed this
afternoon lor conversation with TDK SUN
correspondent this afternoon after the de
spatch of bis letter Mr Noble said
There Is very little thnt I con odd to what I
said In my letter Ille Superintendent of the
Census llureau offered Mayor Grant the pom
olorld
privileges that have beon accorded to other
cities which desired recounts He was asked
fa forward here tho proofs which he claimed to
be In his possession showing tho Inaccuracy
of the Juno enumeration and without giving
any reason for not doing BO either to me or to
he Census Bureau the Mayor has failed to
make any statement with regard to
hIe case except to demand a recount
Bis turned his back on the Superintendent and
applied to me I have answered him not by
any personal letter but In the only olllolal way
possible to an executlxo officer In the form uf
an opinion upon a matter submitted to me for
Inal judgment In tbat form It becomes pub
Io as soon an it Is placed on record so that
here will l > o no room for criticism of my action
tion in giving it to the press betoro it
reaches Now York Tho Mayor fell Into
several errors In his letter to tho
Jensus Office He was peremptory In
Je
ono He tried to hold the offlce responsible for
he police count because Mr Olcott was pres
ent polce Dal count the timo while I wan going
on although tho letter ot instructions whloh
llr Olcott carried strictly confined him to In
lormlnghlmiolf as to tho methods hit wore
t > ursued hlmol enumeration Besides Mr
Jlcott could not havo supervised the enumera
tion when he only reached New York throe
days niter tho actual work of what was said to
lter te
be a sK days census hod bean commenced
Flo made another mistake lu Imagining that
UrOlcottH dally teportn kept nls edict fully
aware of the progress of the pollen count Al
together It ceoms to me that tbe Mayor In not
lending his proof hero for examination when
do savstbat bis pockets wee full of I mis
managed his case
WHAT RUTEHISTENDICST FOHTEB SATB
Superintendent porter was averse to talking
upon Ibo subject saying that the mutter wan
now entirely out of his hands Mayor
entrely he out ha made It Impossible for
mo to do anything by appealing to the Secre
tary He wan requested by this offlc to pro
duce testimony Innupoort of his claims but
Failed to do so I was consequently Impossi
ble for this office to take any action Ho ap
peals Hia cane still without evidence to tbe
Secretary of the Interior and of course so
Tar as I am concerned there the matter ends
Slayor Grants action In this caso Is > ery much
ilko that of a lawyer who would appeal I In
lke afORa
court make an announcement of that fRI
then get mad with tne Judgo oceanPO testi
mony was demanded of him and finally far
I wont make my case plain 1 will appeal to
a higher court
0 Chief Clerk Chllds Is of OUrS r much
pleased at the substantial backing he has re
seived from the Secretary and It would be a
sorry day for any man now to come to him to
auk for a recount Ho would feel that he could I
abuse him to his hearts content and bo nro
of Mr Nobles smile Ho feelo however that
h has earned a rest nnd he will leave on Mon
day on a vacation t New Mexico where he

Inhabltaat of tha Emplra City la
The legend which tho enorgstla builnosi
len of Democratic faith havo placed around
the name of Mayor Grant sets forth some < ot
his conspicuous achievements I saT con
cisely that the Mayor has removed the un
sightly polos upon which electrlo wires were
strung has given and I giving wellpaved
streets has so administered bis office as to re
duce the tax rate and taxes and has Inaugu
rated a movement which will sole the rapid
These all achievements
irnnslt problem are al Bchlevment
of great local Importance each ono of tem
popular demand
mooting Imperative demad
Yet I la probable that in some respects th
ot Mayor I
mOlt conspicuous performance
Grants administration Is his determination
of tho vexed census problem Out of what
seemed at first to bo a matter of mere local
consoquenoo has developed conclusive ovl
dence that the people of the United States
lave boon cheated by tho witting or unwitting
action of the Census Bureau in Its enumeration
of the nonulatlon
to pOtulnton
Mayor Grants services to tho olty while In
its present post have ben ot value which no
malice can belittle but In this matter his
service ha ben to the nation as wolU The
manner In which ho met this extremely del
cate and dlfUault emergency is I perhaps the
best tribute to b abilities which his record
furnishes
By his aot the attention of tho country la
fooussed upon the administration ot tho Cen
sus Office so that a issue ot val consequence
ha been rained and will be taken Into the halls
of Congress when that body next meets
Ho ha lifted the contentions from mere mat
ters of local pride in population to one ot the
most serious questions which boa rot come be
fore Congress
In August lat there came an unofficial esti
mate from Washington showing that the enu
merators from New York city had lound about
1620000 citizens here This figure was s near
the estimate of tbe Board of Hath as to givo
that department no little satisfaction Their
estimates Ire most careful mod and by I
rigid and well established system of computa
tion A few wooks later the astonishing news
came from Washington that the first estimate
was too great and the population of New York
would b but a little over 0 million and a hal
The community at large did not seem espe
cially Interested In this statement at flrst but
to Mayor Grant It appeared the instant the
despatch was published to bo I most serious
matter He was perhaps the frt of all th
citizens of New York to realize the Importance
of the statement He at
portance etatoment It once
sent for Mr Wilson the President of the Board
of Health and had Informal conversation with
him spending many hour In patient exam
ination which entailed toll of the most drudg
ing nature Aa a result of those conferences
the Mayor hesitated not Ho saw that the timo
had come for action not to gratify Any local
pride for te city is too great to be Influenced
by such considerations nor to further any political
litical scheme for the suggestion of politics
did not occur until long nftr but because by
the returns of the Census Bureau one of the
most Important departments of tho city Gov
ernment was Impeached its efficiency threat
ened and Its value impaired
This was the serious question which Porters
figures Qrst created The Mayor
census Ilures Irst creltod took
counsel himself alone and A a result he
wrote on Sept 10 through his private secre I
tary to Mr Wilson the President of tho Board I
of Health requesting offleial data about tho I
death rate in tho city from 1879 and for all
other data respecting the population tbo i
death rate or other facts barn upon the
question Llttlo time was lost In a few days
the Mayor received an enormous mass of
documents and data from tbo Health Depart
ment which showed that If the Porter census
was correct all Ibo work done by the depart
ment in Inspecting and improving the condi
tion of 6000 tenement houses constructed
since 1881 bod practically gono for naught
because the death rate hod beon alarmingly
Increased
In one of the tenement wards If the Porter
figures correct tbo death rate has
lure were rlo jump
ed to over 6000 a greater death rte than that
of Cairo as Mayor Grant said and tho general
death rate In thn city bad Increased between
1880 and 1889 from 2744 to 27M the death rate
had been Increased proportionately 1 a greater
extent among males than among females and
while In 1870 thaie were 473760 persons living
In other buildings than tenement houses yet
tbe Iortoroensus estimated there
by census as etmalsd were
only 355285 persons living in other than tene
ment bouses In 1849
Mayor Grant took no mans word but exam
ined tbete document tilmielf and when be
bad finished the prodigious labor thus entailed
his mind was mae up Ho said after all of tho
ennray expense und pains taken by the Health
Deportment It appears according to the Ior
tor census that New York Is I becoming more
and more unhealthy the death rate It IIHTIWH
Ing a large proportion of the Inhabitant are
living In tenoment tiousos and the twuotlcltl
unitary laws paused In wont > ears lime

ought not be taken down Bom trifling
error were discovered and rectified at the
aUlle ton of the representative of the Census
nice and with theso exceptions tho police
lount stands tinlmpeached except by the
nnnendoes of the census employees
It cost the elY less than two thousand dol
lar It revealed something which Mayor
Grant tho Health Board and the citizens had
never dreamt of I showed that the efficiency
of the Health Department was oven greater
ban bad been supposed that the death rat
was not tat ot a chornel city like Cairo but
lonslstent with what ever physician knew to
> e the case which was that New York was im
proving yearly In hcalthfulness but it also
ihoirtd that in this olty there lived nearly two
hundred thousand more persons tan Porters
census had enumerated and that therefor
ho olty would be entitled to ono more repre
sentative in Congress than would be the case I
loners census stood and the Htate to on
more electoral vote
This revelation changed tho aspect of affairs
In I twinkling Th facts and not Mayor
Grant mado I a political Issue
It concentrated tho attention of the country
upon the work ot the consul officers In other
cities preparations wore at once begun to tae
0 recount Eldonces came of similar depre I
ciations by the Porter enumerators which I
curiously enough wore reported from sections
where tho Democratic party was In tho maor
I The Issue became not local any longer
but national the feeling grew that tho census
was tainted either by Inoompetauc or
carelessness or else by prearranged scheme
the population of the country was 10 Inaccu
rately counted tat Democrat would b de
prived of representation in Congress and
would Electoral be likely College to b deprived of votes In tho
Mayor Grant at once In most dignified but
Irm and Impressive correspondence called
the attention of the Interior Department at
Washington to this gross Injustice The si
lence with which his complaint had been
received tends to confirm the suspicion tat it
was not incompetence but intention which
produced those Inaccuracies
The Superintendent of the Census in In
Formal Interviews suggests puerll causes for
the discrepancy He does not daro suggest
that the police count under Mayor Grants
ore Is inaccurate but dares maintain that
there are 200000 more citizens In New York
today tan there wcr on the 1st of June He
Intimates that a recount would bo expensive
Jot It cost tho city less than 2000 to take the
police enumeration Where Grant was firm
prompt vigorous and responsive t a great
emergency Porter vacillates twaddles and
even bldoH behind the cloak of his superior
Holt is tat because he was equal to an emerg
ency unexpected which came of a sudden
which a groat and which called for dualities
of a high order successfully to meet Mayor
Grant has brought nn Issue of national conse
quence before tho country and on which may
be even fraught with utmost danger to the De
mocracy The Democratic party therefore
everywhere owes him something I owes him
at lest that tribute which goes out to the man
who In executive post finds himself confront
ed with an extraordinary crisis and proves
able to meet It
Yet there are men In this city who call them
selves Democrat and who are nightly assert
ing upon the fitump In voclferouu utterance
that they are loyal to the Democratic party
who are urging Democrats to defeat the man
who ha done the party such service a this
and who Is at the same time appealing to tho
Government to do New York city and New
York State simple justice
