At the Census Hureau the returns from
St Marj and Charles Counties fell un
der suspicion as to their rellabilit when
first receUed from the enumerators The
surmise was reached that the returns
were Inaccurate and pidded Certain rep
resentations made by Democratic news
papers of the State charging fraud in
the returns In th Interest of the Repub
licans determined their bureau to Inves
tigate the matter In the Leonardtown
district the Inaccuracies in the enumera
tors reports were most patent and the
Instances of fraud were soon unearthed
bj the Investigation which was Instituted
b the Bureau
Abell enumerator of the Census In thla
district was arrested as the result of the
investigation charged with having on
June 2 ISmO while acting as in enumera
tor in District 111 of the Third Supervis
ors district of the United States Census
willfully knowinely and unlawfully
made certain false returns to the Direc
tor of the Census bj setting out In the
returns that seven pople were alive and
actual residents of the district while in
fact thej were all dead at the time the
returns wre made
The Census act of March 3 ISO defines
In section 21 the crime and penalties for
conviction of altering census returns as
That any supervisor supervisors
clerk enumerator interpreter special
agent or other emploje who having
taken and subscribed the oath of oflice
required by this act shall without Jus
tifiable cause neglect or refuse to per
form the duties enjoined on him by
this act or shall without the au
thority of the Director of the Census

Director Merrlam of the Census Hu
reau said esterda that twenty men
from the hureau had been sent to tho two
counties In Maryland to review the work
of the original enumerators Clerks
from the buicati he stated had
lcen selected In preference to
enumerators from tho counties
in order that tho work should be
perfectly fair and impartial The popu
lation lists turned In bv the original
enumerators will be checked off by the
men mal lug the recount All names
found to be correctly accredited to the
counties will be approved Nann of
pernors on the lists who cannot be found
will be erased
Whether the pcnaltj upon conviction of
falslfvlng census returns in more than
one Instance is cumulative Director
Merrlim believes rests entlrelj with the
court to decide He states that this Is the
first instance of a recount authorized
under the Twelfth Census In view of
the fact that recounts under an preced
ing census were lnviriabl Instituted to
ascertain whether the population of cer
tain places was not estimated at too low
a Hgure while in the present instance the
complaint under Investigation Is an over
count the Director considers that the
situation is unique

daj Representative Mudd denied any
connection with the case or anj knowl
edge of Abell s wrongdoing previous to
the arrest of tho latter
I want it understood said Mr Mudd
that I did not hue Abell appointed to
his position In the Census This was
done b the State Central Committee I
did have him appointed on the police
force in this city but to tell jou tho
truth there are to man Abells in fat
Mary County that 1 would never have
recognized the man had I not seen him
at the ltollce station Tuesda night when
he telegraphed for me
I never spoke to Abell In mj life be
fore then I never knew that he was
the census enumerator before a few dis
go when a member of the Marj land
folate Legislature mentioned the fact to
me I disclaim all knowledge of the man
and his methods
Now ns one of the men who helped
to draft the Census laws my worst cnemv
would not accuse me of being such a fool
as to advise nn man to puj dead men on
the lists If 1 had any desire to do wrong
1 could have arranged It so ns to avoid
discovery The only reason wh my name
Is connected with this case is because
Abell telephoned mo for hclpafter his ar

Mr Scrogglns Is Interested in Scotch
whiskies and in fact is In tho United

American for the lrtues of the product

1 tell jou he asserted with good
broad Scotch accent jou dont know
what real good Scotch Is here You man
ufacture some that jou call Scotch but
It is not by any means You cannot get
tho water The fine aroma of the real
Scotch comes from the water with which
it is made You have no peat bogs hero

over peat bogs jou can never get Scotch

so how could you expect to make a good

At the Inst meeting of tho National
Hoard of the National Societ of the
Diughters otUhe American Revolution it
was decided so it Is said ti exclude all
newspiper reporters from the meetings at
future innual congresses of the D A R
This move was made It Is reported on
account of a groat many letters having
Ken received at the headquarters of the
societ -in tills cltv from out of town
members in which the stigmatized the
conduct of certain members at the last
D A It congress as disgraceful The
said under the circumstances they were
ashamed to si that the were members
of the D A R
Inasmuch as there Is quite a number
of members who are newspaper corre
spondents themselves and who will re
port the proceedings of the congress to
their respective pipers the purpose and
aim of tho boird to prevent their pro
ceedings from becoming public will be
threatened to a certain extent A rule to
siispi nil such members who notwith
standing the decision of the board will
continue to report to their papers and
if necessary even final expulsion from
the society is spoken of
The progressive element of the society
which comprises a great number com
posed of literary worriers newspaper
editors and proprietors as well as artists
It Is said will resist this decision of the
board which call unjustified and
art rary to the last degree Thej
say If the members would onl use a
little more prudence wisdom and dignity
this action of excluding the press and
hiding the proceedings of the societj
would be entirely superfluous Even
member of the bo ird has been requested
to keep this mow strictly secret This
decision lias caused a great stir in the
local D A R circles ami it Is reported
that there are several chapters which will
at their net regular meeting protest
against the rule
When seen about the matter Mrs
Charles W Fairbanks the President
General of the D A It said List night
I 1ont remember any decision as the
I dont remember any decision such as
the one to which jou refer having been
made by the board It may havo been
made however but I dont remember It
The rule may have been adopted In my
absence but I dont remember
Indeed I really dont remember whether
the matter was discusse d at the last board
meeting but I will try to find uut for
Turther tlian this Mrs Fairbanks did
not in manner commit herself
At the headquarters of the society the
same method of withholding Information
regarding the matter was followed ThAre
stems to be a decided on the
part of tho members to keep the matter
a profound secret But that tho ques
tion was broached fully discussed and
acted upon Is Vouched for by a member
of tho D A R who also stated that tho
reason for the action taken the board
was that the members of the board did
not wish to again expose the society to
public ridicule

the first production here of the much her
alded and much talked ot The Burgo
The most lavish promises have been
made for this entertainment lioth as to
Its book and Its musical score Certalnl
this new production will have no causo to
complain of the chance it will have In
Washington and if It but fulfills the
promises Is quise certain to enjoy a pros
perous engagement
The book b Frank Tixley tells a
quaint storv of Peter Stuvesant Burgo
master of New Amsterdam In the middle
of the seventeenth centur who having
drugged a cask of liquor for distribution
among a band of hostile Indians Inadver
tently takes a drink of the stuff himself
He is thrown Into a deep sleep which
lasts until the jear ltOOwhen he Is
dug out of mother earth In City
Hall Park New York bj a gang of la
borers excavating for the Rapid Trarlt

comic vein The musical score bv Gr

the plaj there nearlj two hundred times
and time to a standing room audi
ence In her final week she had to add
extra matinees to the regular perform
ancesand even then hundreds were turn
ed away from each representation It Is
an absolute fact that Miss Russell closed
her season In New York with A Rojal
Famllj still In such enormous demand
that persons posted In theatrical business
say she could have continued at the I
ceum all through the season to standing
room audiences
The pltywhleh is by Capt R Marshall
who also wrote Ills Excellenc the Gov
ernor Is beautiful to begin with a deli
cate little romance carrying a love
story of the most exquisite quality and
Miss Russell s simplicity and naturalness
which are re enforced by a subtlet and
strength ot acting that cannot be resisted
