to land hit well-known right hay

round of the contest, he failed to

Considerable adverse comment was
caused by Referee Wattors' decision,
some fans protesting that the referee
should have called the contest a
draw, but If he had done so he would
have dodged he Issue. Huff fought a
fastor fight, broke cleaner In the-

of fisticuffs. If anything tho bearcat
had slightly tho best of tho match,
but no one could qulbbletover tho re
feree's decision In dividing tho hon

around these parts and if the boxing
commission backs up its referee in
such decisions as he gave last night,
there la no reason that it should not
grow better. Last night's exhibition
was staged before a packed house.
There was qu'to a sprinkling of lady
fansamong the seat-holders, a tew

Attention that the local game (s

J "Thp enumeration Is In progress
throughoutthe entire country," said
lr. Rogers, tody. '"Advices from
the supervisors Indicate that during
the first week of tho work at-least
70,000 enumerators were started.
"We find that In some districts It
will bo necessary to postpone the
enumeration because of weather con
dltlonsv There has been no opposition
toifurnlshjng the Information request
ed by tho enumerators.
"The supervisors report the com
pletion'' of the 'enumeration In many
districts, and as rapidly as the enum
erators turn In" their portfolios they
are being examined In the office of
the supervisor and are being put In
shape to come to Washington. The
signmenis can ue maue reauy. we
therefore naturally expect a large
amount of the work to reach the or
.' . 1-
flee in Washington during the latter
part of this month or the first of
February, but as a general rule the
enumeration will be completed thru
out the entire country by the first of
February. It .will be some time, how
ever, before it will bo-finished in the
districts where it has been postponed
on account of climatic conditions.
Wo aro now organizing a force of
clerks, who will bo equipped to exam
ine tho schedules as .rapidly as they
are received from tho supervisors.
These clerks will make a preliminary
count of tho population. This prelim
inary count will be made public as
rapidly aa tho totals for the cities
nnd the minor civil divisions are ob
tained. Tho population in the cities
will be announced first. Wo hope that
the total population of the country
will bo known in September or Oct
ober of this year, and the population
of tho cities should all be announced
by May or June."
