Statements and the Imputation That Civil Service Reform Wan I c no red Hind Inferences Drawn TtnerefrcMW Did Increase of City Populations and What It Implies Comparison by Decades WASHINGTON CITY Nov Superin eiident Porter yesterday addressed a let ter to William Dudley Foulke president of the Civil Service Reform league in re Iy to a criticism of the latter on census office methods Superintendent Porter says at the outset tbat Mr Foulkeis as sumption to the etlect that Porter sought ail opportunity to defend ithe census in nk Leslies illuatrated newspaper Js not true because the article in question wits written at the very earnest solicita tion of the editor of that paper Mr ETcuIkus second assumption ihtvt Super ntendent Porter recommended to the president that the ceasua be taken by enumerators appointed upon the recom mendation of Republican congressmen and other influential party men Mr Porter says it is equally incorrect and in ts that the supervisors in with the law selected their own enumera tors Difficult to Obtain Men In many parts ot the country it was difficult to secure enumerators for less ban a day their employment to last roni Qftten to thirty days and an at tempt to subject this immense army to civil service would have been a farce if it md not been impossible Superintendent Porter says he should believe in the ac curacy of an enumeration conducted by a Pemocratio administration in the same iianner aud ia the same spirit as the eleventhcensus has been conducted but adds that a list of names secured by the police of New York is one thing and a census of the United States taken under ttie census law altogether another The intent ot the police enumeration wa6 to fitid more than the federal enumeration and this he says is sustained by many icts that have reached him from roliabJe ourcts lUgartllng Vital StntUUca Porter explains his sileuce regarding inferences to bo drawn from the vital statistics of the metropolis He says he thinks such inferences of value in the face of the exact count of the ieopie and declares he has repeatedly reateii this phase of the question in pub lic Jn support of the unreliability of vital staiiuics he cites the fact uly brought out in a report made to tilt English house of commons by a com mittee to inquire into certain questions uunuucted with lhe taking of the census ot England in which experts show wide diversity of ascertained facts from the population estimates bused on vital statis ics Some cities according to tables iu this report were shown to havii a popula tiou of 25 per cent above the registrar euerala estimates and other districts turned out to have populations 2b per cent less than the socalled estimate of die registrar general The Merit System Applied Superintendent Porter asserts that he has applie I as far as possible the princi ple of civil service to the appointment of snumeratora and employes of bis bureau Every important place in the bureau try expert iu the office every man or woman in charge of work Superintend ent Porter saya has been appointed sole y on account of ability to perform faith ful service in the lost or tenth census The merit has been applied suc cessfully uiul as a result the census bu reau today one of the most eflicieut clerical forces engaged in the public serv ice IncieHHG of Urban Population Speaking of the census returns from cities Porter says that oua of the moat remarkable features ot the census just taken the evidence of the growth of urban population During the past de cade this gain has bunu no leas than f0 per cent Speaking roundly said Mr Porter it may be said thnt in 3190 one thirtieth oC the population was found iu cities of more lhau SoOJ population in O onolwensyfifiih in 1810 and alao in LS20
