A REMINDER TO OrFICE-SEEKERH THAT THE CEN SUS IS HOT TO BE TAKEN UNTIL NEXT YEAR NO APPOINTMENTS TO BE MADE IN 1889?HOW THET WILL BE MADE NEXT YEAR. Lr. Robert P. Porter, superintendent of the eleventh census,has been overwhelmed with ap plications for appointment during the past few days. The recent decision of the law officer of the Interior department that the employes of the census are not subject to the civil service law has had a good deal to do with the rush that has been made upon the superintendent. Mr. Porter does not enjoy the situation. In fact he is grieved that the pub lic, and especially that portion which seems to desire a government office, does not appreciate two facts: One is that the census is not to be taken until next year, and the other that the census oft ice is not going to be an asylum. It is a mistake to imagine," remarked Mr. Porter this morning to a Star reporter, "that because the civil-service rules do not applv to the census office that I'm going to make ap pointments wholesale and without regard to qualifications. .Tust the contrary is going to be the case. \Yhen I begin to make appointments, which will not be until next year. I propose to be governed by tne following considerations: rirst. those who have had experience in the last census will have the preference, and sec ond. those who have passed the civil-service examination. For others I propose to have an examination and make appointments based upon the results of such an examination. The law authorizing the taking of the census pro vides tor examination. The clause relating to it is as follows: 'All examinations for appoint ment and promotion under this act shall be in the discretion and under the direction of the secretary of the Interior.'" NO MORE APPOINTMENTS UNTIL NEXT YRAR. "For the present." continued Mr. Porter, "I have made all the appointments in the clerical force that I consider the service needs until the next year. I have not organized the office fully yet, nor appointed all the chicfs of the division. These appointments can be made gradually and will l>e done in time to Lave everything in readiness for the taking of the census which begins on the first Mondav of June, 1890." HOW SUPERVISORS WILL BE APPOINTED. The law provides that the supervisors of the census, to a number not exceeding 175. shall be appointed by the President by and with the ad vice of the Senate on or before March 1. 1890. i he supervisor** are empowered to designate to the superintendent of the census suitable per sons. and, with the consent of the superinten dent. to employ such persons as enumerators in the districts. THE CENSUS YE\R. The census office begun to-day the work of sending out notices to the newspapers through out the country asking that public attention be called to the fact that the census year begins June 1. 1889, and ends May 31. 1890. and that the physicians of the country keep a record of all deaths occurring in that period For this purpose a register will be mailed to everv phy sician outside of cities and states, where a com plete system of registration of deaths prevail, in which to keep a thorough record of all deaths occurring in their practice. A PROBABLE APPEAL TO THE PRESIDENT. It is expected that the President will soon be called upon to decide a dispute, the foundation of which is already laid, between the Interior department and the civil-service commission. Assistant Attorney-General Shields, of the In terior department, has decided that appoint ments in the census bureau are not under civil service rules; basing his decision upon the law reviving the census bureau, which says: "All j examinations for appointment or promotion under this act. shall be under the direction of I the Secretary of the Interior." The civil-service board, it is said, will appeal from this decisiou to the President and make a strong effort to have the patroiiHge of this im portant bureau placed under its control. The ccnsus bureau will give employment to 1,500 clerks for two years and to as many more for shorter periods, to say nothing of loeal super intendents and enumerators. ARMS FOIt THE MILITIA.

DISTRICT NATIONAL GUARD. No Army Officer Found Willing to Act as Adjutant-(iciierai. The efforts of the acting secretary of war to secure a regular army officer to act us adjutunt j general of the District national guard in re sponse to Gen. Ord way's requisition have thus : far been unavailing. The name or Lieut. Con | stantine ('louse, third artillery, was first sug gested, and it was approved all around, in cluding Gen. Ordwav, but when tho officer himself was approached he felt a little dubious about accepting. He is at present acting as quartermaster of Washington barracks, which brings him some extres in the wav of pay. and taking the place at the militia headquarters would be a pecuniary loss to him. This morn ing he informed Acting Secretary lienet that he would prefer to remain at the barracks, and hence another search lias been instituted. CAPITOL HILl"pOST-OFFICE. Trouble Met in Endeavoring to Secure Suitable Quarters. Postmaster Ross is in some perplexity over the location of the Capitol Hill branch post office. The appropriation that became avail able July 1 allows $900 a year for the rent of a building for a post-office in that section. This was made in order to secure the increased ac comodations which the growth of the service demands. The location of the building now occupied at the southeast .corner of 3d and Last Capitol streets is considered a desirable one at the city post-office. An effort was made to secure from the owner of the building an agreement to enlarge the quarters occupied by tho post-office audio put certain improvements ,n building, but no agreement has been reached. Several other sites have been sug fested and one proposition has gone before the WbuHter-General This was a proposition from the owner of the property at the northeast corner of 4th and East Capitol streets to erect a building there and lease it to the government for #900 a year. Postmaster Ross yesterday had a conference with Assistant Postmaster General Tyner on the subject The site pro posed has been approved by the inspectors and others, but Mr. Tyner considered the rent asked exoeasive. So, that proposition appears to have been disposed of, unless the owner modifies his proposal. Telegrams to The Star. PARNELL AND O'BRIEN. Their Meeting in the Commis sion Court-Room.

Fort CrsTEB, Must.. May 8.-Responsible parties just in from Samedor, Mont., report that a large party of Pine Kulge Sioux, led by Grasshopper, have come into the Tongue River agency for the purpose of gettiug up a sun dance among the Cheyennes. Grasshopper has eluded all attempts on the part of the agent to arrest hiin. The Cheyennes are iu sympa thy with the Sioux, and the sun dance will certainly be held unless the Indian* are over awed by the presence of a large body of troops. The Crow outbreak of last summer had its origin in a sun dance gotten up by Grasshopper and held at the place where the Sioux and Cheyennes propose to dance next week. It required seven companies of United States troops to break up the dance and escort the Sioux in a body back to their re servation. From that dance Sword liearer. the Crow medicine mm. returned to his people bringing a wonderful white medicine that caused a pot of cold water to boil when throwu into it. Thus convinced of Sword bearer's su j pernatural attainments, the Crow* followed his I lead in open revolt. The Ft deral authorities will endeavor to prevent another grand distri bution of mixea seidlitz powders among the Sioux and Cheyennes. and should the dance come off the atteudance will be largely of a military character. A DARING ROBBERY. The Robbers Pursued?Two Killed, But a Third Holds Out. Colorado Springs, Col.. May 8.?The most daring robbery in the history of the county was perpetrated at Florissant Monday night about 8 o'clock. Frank Costello, postmaster and storekeeper of that town, with hig two clerks. 1 was getting ready to close the office when three ' men entered and covered the occupants with guns, and said they wanted money. One of the clerks, named Putnam, began to parley with the robbers, when he was severely clubbed, l'ostruagter Costello. seeing the robbers had the drop on him. handed over 4400. All the time the money was being counted the robbers kept the men covered with their Winchesters. Patting the money in their (tockets. the bold intruders backed to the doors and escaped. An alarm was given, and a party started iu pursuit. THE ROBBERS WERE OVERTAKEN a short distance from the town and a fight en sued. in which one of the pursuing party. Wm. Brady, was shot and probably fatally wounded. Tlie robbers succeeded in getting away and rtviched the mountains. The deputy sheriff and a well-armed posse started after them at an early hour yesterday mcrniug. and. over hauling them, another tight ensued. The rob bers were lodged behiud a barricade of rocks, and : titer a terrible tight of half an hour one of the n ?bbers was killed and another wounded, but the third still holds out. and until ammu nition is exhausted there is no prospect of his a urren-tiring. Sheriff Jackson and posse left this cit. T last night, well armed, for the scene of the ti louble. and it is probable the desperate villain w ill be obliged to surrender.
