WASHINGTON, May 6 In denial of a
number of published stories giving what
purported to be estimates of the popula
tion of some of the citlea of the
United States as shown by the ne
census. C. Dana Durand, director
of the census, declared emphatically
that no official announcement of the
population of any city or state In the
United Slates or ot the United States as a
whole will be made for some time to come,
and, further, that the fact that these re
turns from the enumerators have not been
received emphasizes the Impossibility of
any official statement or even estimate be

Once a month there appears uron Ih?

bears a striking resemblance to General
Robert E. Lee. The man Is, in fact. Gen- j

General Lee's regular visits to Washing

old acquaintances. He always has a more
practical mission. As soon as h leaves

him courteously, the general steps into the ,
chair and has his hair cut. After leavinjr
the barber shop he steps across the street
to the law offices of his son, Robert E.
Lee, where he remains for a few minutes.
He then takes an early afternoon tialn
back to hla home in Fairfax county.
General Lee Is president emeritus of
Washington and Lee university, of whk-h
institution his father also wa president.
The striking manner In vhlch he resem
bles his famous father In every detail was
(Illustrated by the sculptor who was se
lected to design the statue of General Lee
which now stands in Statuary hall at the
capitol. The sculptor had an excellent
death mask of the confederate general, but
was somewhat puzzled about the size of
the hands until he was informed that Gen
eral George Washington Custls Lee was
the living Image of his father. The sculptor
thereupon took an Impression of the hands
of the Bon.
General Robert Lee, by the way, is th9
subject of much debate in some quarters
at the present time, as the result of state
ments recently made by Senator Lodge of
Massachusetts to the effect that he was
not a citizen of the United States wlten he
died. The proclamation of President John
son granted annesty to all confederate
soldiers below the rank of colonel. All
officers above that rank were required to
take an oath of allegiance to the United
States before being restored to citizenship.
Senator Lodge has asserted that General
Lee did not take that oath, although he )
The Tired Business
BT WALTER A. SINCLAIR.
Why didn't the judge lock up the Hcinze
jury and take away newspapers and
drinks?" asked Friend Wife.
After they had been condemned to be
electrocuted by lawyers, too," said the
Tired Business Man. "What are we coming
to? They are undoubtedly guilty of being
eligible for jury duty and any man who
can be found to be that now days ought
to be locked up. At least long enough for
a commission to examine them.' I suppose
that an appeal could be composed to the
tune of 'Helnze Jury pickled again.'
'I don't see what protection we are going
to have from jurors being left at large to
run amuck or a couple of mucks, and
liable to eat too much pie or read the
papers or even tip in a occasional libation
during their three weeks or a month's con
finement furthering the ends of justice. In
our most popular trials It has been the
custom for juror to close up their business
and retire, bid farewell to their families,
leaving them without vlslble"neans of sup
port, get discharged If they were employes,
take a final bath and home made meal,
lay In a supply of clean linen and Immure
themselves In the cloister.
For men in need of complete change of
atmosphere nothing could, be more com
pletely different than the ripe atmosphere
of a court room. True, a Jury box chair is
not as comfortable ns an upholstered
leather swivel chair and one cannot perch
his feet on the railing and smoke during
the equlnoxlal weeks of the trade winds,
known a nolue by counsel. But it Is a
regular life. The keeper leads his charges
Into the pen at the same time each day,
unless one of the lawyer has an Impor
tant engagement, and they are taken back
'Jurors are treated with consideration,
almost with kindness, In spite of their be
nighted condition. Tou never heard of a
keeper beating a juror, although 'tis rum
ored iq the bazar that one Juror occasion
ally beats another, but only at the en
chanting pastime called poker. Considering
that one ran have a game every night
without having to square It with his wife,
He's a nice fellowjo taker
"Why, what did he doT
advised his soldiers to do so. This Mate
inent has been disputed hy some of Lee s
followers, and officials of the congressional
library have been requested to look up The
records. They have been at work several
days, but thus far have found no docu
ment to disprove the assertion ot th Mas
"There Is one congressional dlstrct In
the state of Kentucky," said a member of
the house from that slate the other diy,
"where the democratic leaders have been
discouraged in their efforts to oust Repre
sentative Don C. Edwards.
"Republicans had been seTit to congress
from that district for a long time by reaon
of the fact that it had been gerryman
dered, and 'today the district stretches
through nineteen counties. When Beck
ham was governor the democrats decid d
to make a determined effort to get out a
big democratic vote. It was known that
there were thousands of mountalners who
did not go to the polls, principally becaus
the polling places were far removed from
their homes and because they did not have
the means of transportation.
The democrats rounded up all the horses
and mules they could rent and sh'ppe.1
them through the district. Willing workers
were sent through the district to urge the
mountalners to show their love of party
by using these animals to get to the polls.
"There was no doubt about the will ng
ness of the Inhabitants of the Kentucky
mountains to exercise the franchise when
given an opportunity. They came down the
hills In droves. The plan seemed to be
working beyond the wildest dreams of the
democratic leaders. In fact, they thought,
a way had been discavered to turn what
seemed to be an overwhelmingly republi
can district over to the democrats.
"Sad was the story which was revealed
by the count of ballots. It was found that
the republican majority was 33,003, whith
waa about 11,000 more than the average.
Hereafter if the mountain voters want to
go to the polls they, will have to provids
their own trairsporatlon."
Jurors Are Con
demned to Elocution
I think being locked up has Its advantages.
"Of course Jurors often may wonder
peevishly why they should be locked up
while the defendant ran come and go at
will, can get at home if he has one, can
see a show, can discuss the case with some
body if he dares and can read the news
paper accounts until he gets mad. But then
he Is the defendant, while tbey are only
the Jurors, who ought to be glad they are
not shot at sunrise even If the appealing
lawyer sometimes asserts they were half
"Think of having to exist dally and
nightly with eleven other strangers who
have been selected to try a defendant and
then of being admonished not to discuss
the case! Have to eat it, Inhale it and
live it daily and be just bursting to men
tion something about it and then have to
stifle It.. I suppose a case could be ap
pealed If a juror talked In his sleep.
"The newspapers served to Jurors are
nothing but rims, with all the Interesting
reading and cartoons cut out. Even harm
less stories, which one 1 dying to read,
are liable to he prflnted on the reverse side
of the sheet containing an account of the
trial and gets censored out. But it serves
them right for being Jurors. They are
treated a defectives; lawyers standing a
are prescribed, they are talked to a though
they were deaf, their hour and habits
ar prescribed, they are talked to as though
they were devoid of reasoning. They ought
to be locked up. I wonder why the custom
doesn't go further and lock tip the Judges,
the prosecutors and the court Janitor ev
erybody but the defendant?" v
"Women would make good Jurors," ob
served Friend Wife, Irrelevantly.
"I said Juror are not allowed to discuss
a case," said the Tired Business Man.

Burslars Make Hleta Haul.
HEBRON, Neb., May 6
Burglars invaded the home of
Colonel Abner Bloodgood, six
miles southwest of Hebron last
night and carried away six
prize porkers. The hoga were
about ready for market, and
Colonel Bloodgood, as a pre
caution, had placed them In
the parlor for safe-keeping.
The burglars evidently used
skeleton keys as a mean of
entrance, and It Is supposed
that the squeal of hoga was
rendered somnolent by copious
doses of chloroform. -A tray
of diamonds carelessly left on
a table in trie reception hall,
through which the burglars
passed, waa unmolested. On
top of the tray of Jewels, the
burglara left this note:
