Receipts for 1912, Secretary Mac Veagh estimates, will be $GS0,000,000, which would leave an ordinary surplus of around $50,000,000. If tho treasury should continue to pay for the Panama canal out of he cash drawer as at pres ent, such a surplus would be turned to a deficit of $7,414,800.81. , Secretary MacVeagh expresses the hope that the monetary question will come into Congress detached from sec tional or political considerations. FRAUDS REVIEWED. ' - I. Reviewing the discovery of frauds and the subsequent reorganization of tho customs service, Secretary Mac Veagh urges appropriations for rewards to those who aid the government. The rehabilitation of the customs service at New York has been marked, he said, by a decided elimination of spoils in fluences and practical politics.

UNION CITY IMPROVES. Building Contracts Amo u n t $80,000 for Year 1910. Union City has made great stride this year in the improvement of resi dent property with some additions to its business structurcsf . The greater number of buildings in Union City were constructed in the days of furniture factories with cheap labor andliastily put together. They were in keeping with the spirjt of the times when the population came and went here to-day and gone to-morrow.' Tfee homes were of the same charac ter. i'JIany of theei were small and cheaply constructed, even so were the larger and more pretentious homes, T?vnt improvements have been of a different character altogether.- V The homes are now made more substantial and attractive and they are built after some definite architectural plan. . They are niade for permanent residence, with all the comforts that a reasonable and conservative outlay will permit. , The results have been to change the character and appearance of our city altogether, to briug it out of the crude, unshapely proportions and place us for ward into the advance of modern mu nicipalities and resident seats, -Along with this many of our citizons are becoming interested in civic pride. They are beautifying their homes with pretry'lawns, walks and tlower beds. Beautiful'' parks with inviting shady nookVand 'retreats are, to bo seen in the place f the old lumber heaps tiear the railroad tracks and union station. All this is taking place while other improve ments are in progress. So far the im proverhents last year in 'round numbers amounted to $80,000, as follows: Pet Am 11.

When aiv nounced by the Census Bureau at noon Friday tho total population 6f the United States will be shown to approx imate 91,500,600 y -' , ; ;. This estimate is based upon tho re turns. from all the States except Georgia, Montana, WaHtiihgton and Wi&onsin'r the .figures on -most 'of which Director Durand has decided, to withhold tin til the total returns ..for the . country . at large are announced.- The States so far have given an aggregate population of 85,362,725, ' This Is an increase of 20.4 per cent ove the aggregate population contained by the same States in 1900. The four States not included in the computation had an aggregate popula tion of, 5,139,330 in 1900. If they maintain the growth of the other States their aggregate, will be brought up, to 0,18(5,774, giving h grand total for the United States of 91 ,549,503. :' ' Even, jf there should be no gain at all, tho total1 would be. 90,502,001.
