fraudulent effort on the part of two
Individual enumerators to pad ths cen
sus returns for Minneapolis to the
tret of 4.IS names. Censua Director
Durand tonight announced the correct
population of that city to be 301.40s.
Ft. Paul's population la S14.744. ict
the Twin cities tonether Sl.16.
The sain for St. Taul waa It per cent
aa asatnst 49 per cent for Minneapolis.
In 11 St. Paul ahowed 1J.0S. a eratn
of 21 1-J per cent and Mlnneapolla a
eraln of 23.1 per rent.
The announced flifure for Mlnneapo
lla la a a-aln of almost 4 per cent over
the population of 100. which waa 102.
Tl. In rliin out the returna Mr. Durand
znade a statement In which he aald that
aa originally forwarded to the bureau,
the Mlnneapolla report contained 30.
074 names. But while more than 4.000
of these had been eliminated, there waa
no evidence, he said, of any concerted
attempt on the part of the enumeratora
or of the supervisor, or of any group
of private Individuals fraudulently to
pad the census returna. The greater
part of the names eliminated were In
two out of 13 enumeration district In
the oity.
Frauds Not Deliberate.
"The enumeratora for those two dis
tricts may not hare deliberately in
tended to defraud, but It scarcely seems
possible that they should hare failed
to note that they were, to say the least.
Interpreting; the Instructlona very loose
ly." salil the director.
"The over-counting In these two dis
tricts resnltrd almost altogether from
tti- repetition f visitors to lodglng
hnnse and hotels.
"Not content m-lth enumerating all
tne people who were present In such
lixlglng-houses and hotels on census
iiv at on the day of the first visit of
the enumerator, these enumeratora
contend very Urge numbers 'of people
were not present at the flrst visit or
the census day, but who came to these
lodging -houses subsequently.
Moving of Persona Can Mix.
-ft Is evident that thla practice. In
th nrst pl.tee. permits the duplication
of names within the city Itself, by rea
son of the feet that many persona go
from one lodging-house to another, and
In the second plare. results In the
.enumerating of people who -am to lh
4ty after the census day aJ who were,
prrsumablv enumerated elsewhere."
. Noting the fart that It had been aug
, yed tr,3t (h Census Jtureau had
N tn at fault In not arranging for the
enumeration of lodclng-house and ho
tels on a, single day. Mr. Durand aald
that aa a matter of fact the Instruc
tions to the supervisors were specific
ally that, so far as possible, they
snould arrange for the enumeration of
lodging-houses and hotels In a single
lav. but that It waa thought unwise to
make the Instructions absolutely bind.
Ing In every case.
In addition to the namea eliminated
from the achedulee on account of repe
tition of visitors In the districts of
these two enumerators, a considerable
number were stricken out because a
critical examination In the Census Bu
reau showed them to be direct Stipu
lations. These errors are credited to
overslrht on the part of the enumera
tor and the special agents.

Brooklna F-tcapes Death.
Brooklna waa Juat coming around the
torn Into the home etretrh for a trial
circle, preparatory to entering into the
Cordon Bennett race, when four of his
eight cylinders ceased firing. With only
half power he tried first to sustain hlra-

not falL he dived. And It Could almost
be said that he made a perfect landing.
that is. the angle at which he hit the
earth from a height of bit feet waa al
most perfect. But driven by the wind,
and hi engine he came hurtling through
the air at such tremendous speed that
when he touched ths earth hla front
wheels and forward frame collapsed un
der him. The machine stuck Its nose In
the dirt, slowly reared tall upward and
finally collapsed. topside undermost.
Brooklna was thrown from hla seat In
the somersault.
When the suit cleared. Brooklna waa
seen staggering about, his arms tightly
clasped about bis stomach, lie raised
them spasmodlrally to bis head and tore
off hla helmet. The he clasped his
head with hla hands and rocked to and
fro. facing the grandstand as if to bow
In acknowledgment of applause. It waa
apparent that he did not know what he
waa doing.
Ilrlll.ther Steals March.
While he waa staggering for perhaps
20 paces, an ambulance was rushed to
pick him up and hurried him to ths
field hospital. It was later announced
that he had been painfully Injured In

were no bones broken and he waa not
In danger of his life.
Le Blanc got a black eye, a deep cut
undr the chin and a broad scratch
acrosa the right temple, hut was able to

All owing for the good lurk that tossed
the race into Grahame-Whites lap he
still won from the American team by
superior preparedness. Of tho three
Americans selected to defend the cup by
the Aero Club of America-only two start
ed, and those two barely before the time
limit allowed elapsed. Orahame-White
chose an early morning hour, when the

march on 11 defenders. After his rec-ord-bresklng
time had been noted, the
Americans waited until the last moment

were so hurried In getting the Blerlot
