"Oh, Such an Awakening!" It

Boston, Mass.. February 1U.?More j
messages from Professor .lames, lfar-j

Temple, according: to M. S. Ayer, its
In his reported message Professot

census figures too low j
Director Durand Thinks Count TUn? .
Have Misr.cd 1,000,000 or More.
Washington. D. C February 19.? ?
"Taking the country as a whole, it is '
probable that the population is slightly!
understated by the Census Bureau," de- t
claros Director o'f the Census Durand 1
in his annual report, "but whether the
margin of error Is a fraction of l per
cent, or amounts to as much as J per
cent, no one can positively know. That
It should exceed 2 per cent, is certainly
cxt remely improbable;"
This statement, which indicates that]
more than 1,000,000 persons may have
been missed in the count, is made in
the course of Mr. Durand's discussions I
of the twenty-three cities which were
overcounted. Declaring Iiis intention'
to make an investigation of census:
taking abroad to discover means for J
materially improving the work in the j
United States, he says that "it may be.
tin,i the present methods of taking j
the census secure results as nearly per?
fect as is possible."
It was necessary, after careful lnvcs- .
ligatlon, the director s:iys, to correct I
;iie population figures for some twenty- [
three cities of tin- United States, "whose (
census returns had been inaccurately
made or 'padded.' either intentionally
or through carelessness or < rror." Inj
Several cities ther*- -eems to have been '
a deliberate conspiracy between pri?
vate individuals and some of the spe?
cial agents or .numerators, or both, to!
indite, fraudulently; the returns. Sev?
eral cases of padding are now in the
hands of lite Department of Justice. j
Taking up the cost, of the present
census, tho director thinks it will ex-j
eeed its original estimate by $183,000.:
The ottire cost of field work on popu?
lation and agriculture for the thlr- |
tcenth census was about $5.S5?,?00, an j
increase over iro>n Df about $t,5S7,G06.1

From the Time lie Put It in the,
Package the Mail Bag Had
Been in Active .Service.
Springfield, Mass., February tf?.?For
a quarter of a century Rev. Charles
Kdwln Burdotte, now of this city, has
ilvocl under the suspicion that he was a
hypocrite and a thiof. In his boyhood,
while he was registry elcrl; of iho
Peoria (III.) post-office, $3,500 myste?
riously disappeared, and he was thought
lo have taken It.
Mr, Burdotte became a missionary j
and labored among the heathen of the!
Far East for twenty years. All that'
time the .stigma clouded hi3 namo. AU
that time he prayed that Hod would
clear him of a charge of which ho was
Innocent. And jura the other day his
prayer was answered, the truth was
discovered, and the tragic shallow was
swept from his life.
In tiie early seventies Burdette was
employed as registry clerk in the
Pebria post-ofiir.e, of which General n.
\V. Magee, who had won laurels as a
commander of Illinois volunteers In the
Civil War. was postmaster.
?lohn Comstock. a wealthy real estate
man. appeared one day at young Bur
dette's window. He announced that he
wished to send $3,500 in twelve reg?
istered letters to clients in Nebraska
and Dakota. 1
Burdette registered them in the cus- j
tomary way and gave Coc-stock a re?
Then he. placed all twelve envelopes]
in one large envelope of thick, heavy 1
paper. This he carefully lace.j nt j
the bottom of a mall bag In which the 1
morning's muil was to be sent off by
tiie next, train. On top of the enve?
lope he threw the unregistered mail.
On top of the unregistered mall ho
placed his registry book. Then he
locked and sealed the sa?k.
The route agent foun.l the entries
In Burdette's registry hook, but when
ho emptied the mail bay he found no
registered envelope. Therefore he did
hot sign his name In the book.
There was much angry talk between 1
the" two young men. The route agent I
insisted that he had not received the.
envelope and refused to sign for it. |
When Cocstock learned that the
money had not reached Its destination
he became furious. Fie proclaimed lit?
had been robbed. When Postmaster
Magee refused to believe Burdette tils- j
honest he took the matter to Washing?
ton and tried to have the clerk di>- \
missed, but Burdette stood firm and
demanded an investigation. With the
honesty of his office at stake. General
Magee made the investigation very
thorough. The bald facts looked bad?
ly for Burdette. Comstock had passed
the money to Burdette. The money
never had reached the route agent on
the train.
In defiance of peremptory orders
from Washington, young Burdette held !
Iiis job. He remain".! as registry clerk 1
in the Peoria post-office until he was j
ready to go to college. He studied for
the ministry and spent twenty years
in Asia as a missionary. Finally he

had placed In the mail bag. It con
mined twelve smaller envelopes which

"Dear Mr. President.?So great has

I Cirand Jury Will Indict Mnti.v I,ending
Danville. 111.. February 13.-? Men
liheht in business and social lift
win be indicted by the Vermilion
county grand jury this week in the
Vota traffic investigation, to cording to a
statement made to-night by George B
Weislger, member ot l lie grand jury
and special prosecutor since the oust?
ing of State's Attorney Lawman.
Mr. Weislger said that the Jury had
mato'riai for a "startling number oj
indictments and ncveral cas<s. of per?
jury." A preliminary report, of a
batch of vote selling indictments will
be mode Tuesday or Wednesday* at the
late.il, he added.
"Pc< pie arc asking If the grand jury
investigation is ever going to come to
anything." Mr. Welaiger said. ''Politi?
cians will find that it will be dangerous
to ;ry to blo< k us. The idea that If
Indictments are returned no one will be
punished will prove a mistake. Every
indictment will b<? backed with evi?
dence that will .stand tests in the
courts. The thoroughness of tue work
is tile reason why the mill .seems to bo
grinding so slowly."
Mr. Weislger said that a surprise
would appear in the report, which v.;il)
fall with special effect on ward work?
ers who In lieve themselves immune.
The conspiracy indictment, lie said, will
show why the grand jury went back oi
the eighteen months' limitation set by
Judge Klmbrough.

Idea of Clilnn Defying Russia Is rtldt
Peking. February 19.?It is con?
sidered as significant that tho Japan?
ese here are anxious to direct atten?
tion to the F.rillsh Investment of the
disputed Yun-Nan border, which is du?
to the procrastinating tactics of the
Chinese in negotiating a settlement of
a long-standing dispute. This Anglo
Chinese dispute arose from the failure
to delimitate properly 220 miles of tho
Burmah-Yun-Nan frontier, and tho
consequent troubles with marauding
tribes, which led to the dispatch of a
British force under orders to remain
until the delimitation was completed.
The suspicion of a Russo-Japanese
I concert is still' strong, and Japanese
I action is looked lor at the auspicious
moment. The officials ot the British
legation, having had their patience
j exhausted frequently of late, do not
sympathize with the Chinese in the
difficulty which has arisen with Rus
! sia, and the consensus of opinions in
I the legation quarter is that tho Chi?
nese government, instead of advancing
In recent years, has steadily become
more and more incapable. It is de?
clared that it is almost impr .ssiblo for
tho legations to obtain action on any
question. They instance the delay In
the American loan. Among the gov?
ernment officials, the talk is endless,
and little* progress is made. Both the
friends and foes of China see hope
, iessncss in the situation and ridicule
I the Idea of China defying Russia. Some
of them hope for American or other
