The 52000 census enumerators arc
making their rounds Two hundred and
ninety seven supervisors have them in
charge In addition to the staff atiiead
quarters in Washington four chief in
spectors are put on the road and more
than 2000 special agents are also pre
pared to jump into their designated fields
of inquiry Fifty five thousand men to
gather information about 75000000 It
looks like a big army and it is bigger
than any army the Boers have had in the
field in South Africa But this is a great
The end of the century census the
twelfth which Uncle Sam has taken is
expected to show tht the United States
is to day the greatest the most populous
the richest the most prosperous and the
most ijapidly growing modern nation The
experts have already figured out that the
total population will leap from 02000
000 in 1S00 to between 75000000 and
7G000000 in 1900
Mulhall the English statistician last
fall figured the population of the United
States June 1 this year at 77300000
The treasury experts made it still higher
Census Director Merriam has estimated
73000000 or 74000000 but for obvious
reasons he is conservative There are
experts here who are willing towagei
that the grand total when finally wound
up will not bo over 70000000 nor under
75000000 It will beat the civilized
world Germany has only two thirds as
many people Franco and Great Britain
only a little over half as many Russia
and China have more but their hordes
are not to lie reckoned in the category
of fully civilized modern peoples
Director Merriam expects to be able to
announce the population of many Amer
ican cities within the month Washing
ton will come first and rapidly thereafter
New York Chicago Philadelphia and all
the large cities
The census experts give a most inter
esting prediction It is that Uiis census
will show the United States to have a
larger number of cities with a population
exceeding 100000 than any other nation
We shall show about forty such munici
palities and our nearest rival it is be
lieved is India In this competition
China is not counted as the population
of Chinese cities is largely a matter of
guessing and they are mere collections
of villages at best The experts have
also figured out that the center of popu
lation in the United States has now trav
eled about sixty miles west of Colum
bus Ind and is -now not far from the
Illinois line Westward the star of em
In increase of wealth the great West
is expected to astonish the East As a
new apportionment of the United States
for Congress and the electoral college is
to be made next winter upon the basis
of this census as required by the Consti
tution the growth of population in the
West will speedily bring increase of po
litical power Before Dec 1 Director
Merriam expects to announce the total
population of the United States so that
Congress may upon its reassembling at
once proceed to make the new apportion
ment required by the constitution The
total cost of the census is estimated at
from 15000000 to 16000000
Just a hundred years ago Virginia was
the first State 61 the Union with a popu
lation of 8S00O0 This year it will fall
back to about twentieth place At the
beginning of the century Massachusetts
stood third in the list Ten years ago it
was sixth In this census it is pretty
sure to be outstripped by Texas Indiana
Michigan and Iowa
The special agents who are to gather
information as to American manufactur
ing industries are- at work During the
next three months they will finish their
tasks On this score the results are like
ly to he amazing This feature of the
census more than any other will show
the greatness of the United States

Creed Revision Discueeod and Referred
to Special Committee
Unusual interest marked the proceed
ings of the general assembly of the Pres
byterian Church in St Loais last week
Creed revision was most unexpectedly
brought forward Tuesday afternoon and
the discussion which followed was of a
decidedly heated character Situations
at times a little short of dramatic came
to the front and although speakers foe
and against revision occupied the floor
and made speeches that laid bare their
thoughts upon the old confession no ac
tion was taken at that session Consid
eration of the subject was postponed un
til Wednesday when it was placod in the
hands of a committee of fifteen with
the moderator added as chairman to re
port what action if any should be taken
by the church This committee will com
pare analyze and summarize suggestions
from the presbyteries which are invited
to take action on the whole matter of a
restatement of the doctrines most surely
believed among us and which are sub
stantially embodied i our confession of
faith An hours intense and at times
almost acrimonious discussion preceded
the adoption of this report
The settlement of the creed question
as far as this assembly is concerned was
not accomplished without comments being-made
on subject from every shade
of opinion represented in the church The
leaders alone did not settle the matter
but elders and pastors new to the assem
bly voiced their opinions in no uncertain
tone The decision to send the question
to the proposed committee for investiga
tion was in the end adopted by a major
ity which completely overshadowed the
few votes cast against the report This
will leave the question open for the pres
byteries to discuss in every form desired
Their recommendations will do nothing
but shape the report of the committee
which in turn will make recominendi
tions to the assembly next year
The Methotlista Refuse to Change the
Churchs Attitude
The Methodist general conferpnee in
Chicago after two days of turmoil dodg
ed the amusement question On Satur
day the minority report of the commit
tee favoring no change in the discipline
as to dancing theater going etc was
adopted by a vote of 333 to 200 When
the vote was announced in the conference
Monday a motion was made that the re
port be laid on the table This was
agreed to by a vote of 256 to 253 and the
presiding bishop ruled that the matter
was no longer before the house Practi
cally the question stands as it stood when
the conference met technically the con
ference has voted against a report to
leave the discipline unchanged
This action leaves the controversy open
itnd was reached in opposition to the
advice of the majority of a committee
guided by ex Gov Pattison of Pennsyl
vania and after a stormy debate -The
majority of the committee headed by ex
Gov Pattison presented a report to
strike from the trial code mention of
specific amusements and to add to the
chapter of Special Advices an affirma
tion of the churchs historic attitude to
ward worldly diversoions The minority
recommended that no action be taken
Ilaving transacted all the business that
had accumulated the conference Tuosday
adjourned Before the 750 ministers and
laymen in attendance as delegates closed
the session and departed for their homes
in every part of the United States and in
foreign countries of every continent tiey
rushed through a number of smaller mat
ters of business left over from the earlier
days of the session But many members
of the conference had gone away and the
galleries were almost empty so that in

Welland Canal Dynamiters Sentenced
to the Penitentiary
At Welland Ont the dynamiters
Dullman Nolin and Walsh were found
guilty in short order and Chancellor Boyd
sentenced them to life imprisonment in
Kingston The public mind
was thoroughly aroused and no other
verdict than that which was given would
have been well received by the public in
The crime for winch they were convict
ed was an attempt to wreck lock 24 of
the Welland canal with dynamite Walsh
and Nolin were the active participants
in the crime having lowerbed two bo
uses filled with dynamite and with fuses
attached alongside the lock but owing
to a mistake in calculating the distance
to the waters edge the force of the ex
plosion was minimized and the damage
was trifling Dullman accompanied the
men to Niagara Falls and directed pro
ceedings from there The three were
caught almost red handed The jury was
only five minutes arriving at the guilt of
the accused Neither made any remark
on receiving sentence

Southern Politeness
I was given a good example of
southern politeness the other night
said a gentleman from the north I
had gone to the Com us ball and had
agreed to esctfrt a lady home She
was also a stranger in the city and was
stopping with some friends on Bour
bon street about three blocks the other
side of the opera house As it was only
a short distance we decided to walk
I was of course totally unacquainted
with the street and when we had left
the lights of the opera house I felt very
much at sea The houses were dark
ami I could not see the numbers and
it was only by number that the lady
could identify her boarding place as
she had only been there once Ahead of
me was a small man I asked him if
he knew where the number was He
answered very politely that he did not
but was going that way andwould help
me hunt He told another man m front
of him about it and that man told some
of his friends In a few minutes these
gentlemen had formed an advance
guard in our interest We walked
calmly behind while they went in
front on either side of the street strik
ing matches and looking for the num
ber There were eight of them and
their matches would go off one after
the other It was a regular flambaau
parade I was overcome Here it is
shouted an advance scout We ap
proached the house rapidly and found
the eight gentlemen standing before it
It was almost with emotion that I
raised my hat and thanked them for
their efforts Nothing at all they said
politely and the entire eight raised
their hats and walked into the dark
ness New Orleans Times Democrat

Of the late Dr N T Burton pastor

beautiful story

found an old check yellowed by age
and torn across the date isfo or there

of the honorarium to be written in ac
cording to the contributors judgment

the checlr remained never filled out in

The incident is typical It was fairly
pathetic to see how distrustful he was

realized he had done something not or
dinary and then in fitting privacy and
with a beautiful frankness would say
