CENSUS TO BE
— — r.
Population of Large Cities Will
Be Made Known New
Details of Work Planned at
Meeting of Enumerators
The census taking of San Francisco
vu planned in more detail when
George B. Baldwin, census supervisor
for the fourth district of California,
rr.^t his 21 inspectors last night in his
headquarters in the Chronicle building.
It was explained by Supervisor Bald
win that all information obtained by
the enumerators was to be held abso
lutely secret and that nothing was to
be made public until it is given out by
t'ne director of the census at "Washing
ton. D. C.
It was learned that the population of
all cities exceeding 30,000 will be made
known by June 1. The population of
the remainder of the United States will
be made known January 1.
The enumerators to distribute and
collect the advance schedules are to be
placed according to density of popula
tion and not territory. In the east a
farm, according to the cejisus bureau,
has been any one piece of land of
three acres or more. For the coming
census a farm is classed as any piece
of land producing annually $250 or
more and requiring thf attention of at
least one man.
MUSHROOM BED A FARM
According to this interpretation a
mushroom bed in the basement of a
house tak^s on the dignity of a farm.
A hothouse of carnations is a farm, or
any patch of land from potatoes to
radishes that yields 5250 a year. ;*..\u25a0\u25a0
There are to be some women enu
merators in the field. At the time the
census examination was given 29
women were successful out of 36 applU
<-snts. Nine hundred and sixteen men
took the examination and only 446
passed. The highest percentage was
pained by a woman. So it is expected
that some of the best work of the cam
paign will come from the women enu
All domestic animals not on farms
are to be counted. The thoroughbred
dogs and Angora cats are to be jotted
down by Uncle Sam's representatives.
Barns, stables and slaughter houses are
to be counted, including everything ex
cept the fleas. This was never done
Director Baldwin stated last night
that he would not permit drinking
among the enumerators. If the in
spectors find an enumerator drunk or
showing the signs of liquor he is to be
reported and his plax?e filled from a long
list of eligibles. The list of inspectors
is headed by H. B. Taylor, who was
color sergeant in the First California
nnd who was the first man to carry the
flag into Filipino territory.
It is found that some foreigners are
suspicious of the census taking. The
t.'hinese are inclined to believe that ft
is for the purpose of later deporting
them, while Italians are sure that it is
a means to lay heavier taxes. That
the census is purely to get an estimate
of the population of the United States
and nothing more. has been assured by 1
President Taft in 23 languages. These
placards in 23 tongues arrived yester
day from Washington and were dis
tributed in the various foreign colonies
of the city.
BIG FAMILIES CREATKD
In the coming census a family con
number from one into the thousands.
Kverybody living in a hot«M is to be
counted as one family with the pro
prietor of the hotel as the head of the
family. As. for example, everybody in
the St. Francis will be charged up to
Manager James Woods as his family.
The largest family in town is that of
Colonel John A. Lundeen, in command
at the Presidio, whose family numbers
«,000. The county jail will be the
family of Sheriff Tom Finn, while the
relief home and other public institu
tions will be charged up as families to
those directing or managing them.
It is estimated that 50,000 are away
from San Francisco daily whose homes
are here. This large out of town popu
lation includes sailors and society peo
ple abroad, the Chinese in the'Alaekan
canneries.' It is estimated already that
there are' 10,000 Greeks living in San
There is a fine of $100 for any per
son who refuses to fill out the advance
schedules. This fine is $500 for any
hotel proprietor or lodging 'house
keeper who fails to fill out the sched
ule. The census in Chinatown will be
taken under the direction of six Chi
nese native cons, two of whom are
students at the University of Califor
nia and the other four in high school.

California Club in Throes of
Triangular fight for President
T/hree women who have been nominated for president of the California club.
Mrs. Lovell White, Mrs. C. Mason Kinne and
Mme. Tojetti Named for High Office
A dignified contest, triangular in
form, which in other circles might be
termed a "three cornered fight," will
prevail in the California club for the
presidency during the next few weeks,
Mrs. Lovell White, Mrs. C. Mason Kinne
and Mme. Emilia Tojetti being the can
didates nominated yesterday. There
were no ripples nor even whispers \of
excitement visible during the meeting,
each party naming its candidate with
an air of determination which was al
most stolid in its quiet firmness.
Just how the, situation has arisen it
is rather difficult to fathom, but it
seems to be merely an instance of every
woman's right to her own opinion.
Every one likes each of the three can
didates, it appears from the general
gossip prevailing among the 500 mem
bers of the club, but it is declared that
not all the women one may like are
fitted for the presidency of a large club.
Mrs. Lovell Whit© has the benefit of
prestige, her followers say, for she was
the first president of the California club
and has made an able presiding officer
of the Outdoor art league department
of the club since then. She has done
many things of importance for .the
club, chief among which was the secur
ing of the passage of the bill saving the
KXOW.V AS rAnLIAMEXTAIUAX
Mrs. Kinne has not been president of
the California club, but she was na
tional president 1 at one time of the
Woman's relief corps; she has served
six years as a director in the club, was
corresponding secretary last year and
is now historian of the club. She has
also a reputation as a parliamentarian
which is Indeed enviable, and has acted
in that capacity at several conventions.
She has been a member of the Califor
nia club since a few months after its
Mme. Emilia Tojetti is at present
president of the Laurel Hall club, but
her term of office will probably be
brought to a close within a few weeks.

ON JUDGE COFFEY
Former Guardian of Mrs. Tilton
Terms Jurist's * Conduct
"Disgrace to Bench"
< . —
An angry attack on Judge Coffey for
his conduct of the hearing on the peti
tion which resulted in Mrs. Chloe F.
Tilton being declared mentally compe
tent and in Louis Hammersmith being
substituted for Mrs. Ida A. Killey as
guardian of her estate, was made yes
terday by Mrs. Killey and her attor
neys, Joseph Slye and Charles W. Kitts
in affidavits supporting a' motion for a
new trial. Following Judge Coffey's
decision on February 4, 1910, Mrs. Til
ton was taken from Napa asylum,
where she had been confined more than
six years, and is now living upon a
farm she owns.
Judge Coffey's conduct of the hearing
was "unseemly and disorderly and a
disgrace to the dignity of the bench,"
asserts Mrs. Killey in her affidavit. She
charges that the judge sneered at her,
hectored her, displayed rancor and was
offensive and insulting in his remarks.
Both Slye and Kitts, in separate affida
vits, assert that her statements are
"absolutely true and correct."
Appended to these charges are many
affidavits covering testimony which
Mrs. Killey and her attornftys say they
would have offered had the court per
mitted them, proving, they assert, that
Mrs. Tilton is an incompetent.
Judge Coffey is alleged to have stated
that he was sick of the Chloe Tilton
matter and that he hud received 50 let
ters from Dr. Elmer K. Stone. In mak
ing this statement the judge is said to
have looked at Slye in "a triumphant
now I've- got you air." Afterward,
when but three letters were produced,
Mrs. Killey says the judge remarked in
"a chagrined, growling undertone, 'I
thought there were a great many
more.' " •
"The hearing was a medley and a
hodgepodge of questions to, the incom
petent," says Mrs. Kijley. She further
charges that the judge made shrewish
remarks, exhibited keen appreciation of
his own witticisips and was loud and
disorderly in the examination of wit
Slye in his affidavit, says he was
keenly distressed by the occurrences in
court and is unable to account for them
except "upon the assumption that it
was owing to the physical condition of
