Iv—Tho census office has practically finished the census schedules so as to permit of a reliable estimate of the total population of the republic. The returns are in from all but 12.000 of the 43,000 and odd districts ' Ti to which the country was divided. The total population counted is 02,OOO.955, but it is estimated that the districts yet to come in will increase tile total to 04,-tTO.OOO. The latter figure may be taken tis tho population of the United States J ulv 1st, subject to variation of a few thousand when the final and revised count is made. That will not be known for three or four weeks, probably, as lome of the districts will be late in cornin? in. and in a number of cities recounts are in progress. Approximately the population of the states of the union, arranged according to their relative rank. as shown in some cases by actual ,'ount. in others by postal card returns, and in others by careful estimate based |,n the count just completed, as classed bv a member of Superintendent Porter's staff, are as follows: I SIK). .11.0:72,400 . .5,2s*;,ooo 3,801,285 .. 3,000,000 . .-2,7ss (loo ..2.224.822 . .'2,175,000 •2,142,000 . 1,000,000 .1.020.000 .

The chiefs of the population division of the census office celebrated the completion of tin- population of the United States bv a little dinner at Glen Echo tonight. Superintendent I’orter, in expressing his ongratulations upon the rapid awl .e-curate eompletion of tLe great work, spoke as follows: The nullifier of names on every one of 15,000.000 schedules has been registered twice by the nimble and exp* rt fingers [of the counters, and the G4.00b.00o people have mar1 lied. as it were, under the j vision of the young men and women who have done such remarkable work with such extraordinary rapidity and precision. W hat a procession you have had I to pa" before you!

In Juno these blanks were distributed throughout the [country. In July and August they find themselves hack in the census office, counted twice and ready for the next statistical treatment.

THE CLAYTON-BREGKINRIDGE CASE. en Hitt replying the proceedings xinridge sent to and had read Secretary letter to Senator Frye. and Ad- Strong Denunciation o! the Majority Hp. port by the Minority. Washington*. Aug. IS.—Representative Marsh to-dav presented to the house the report of tile democratic minority of the committee on elections in the case of ( iayton vs. Breckinridge in the second Kansas district. The report says with one exception the district had always been democratic, and the presumption should be in favor of a democrat against republican contestants. The theft of the ballot lmx in tin'case is admitted, but it is held it did not change the result- in the election as the democrats carried the district, by a majority of one hundred and forty-nine, allowing the republicans the disputed votes in every township. The report comments on the instruction of the house to make a full and thorough investigation of “this exceptional case;” calls attention to the great number of charges and counter-charges and issues involved and states the committee spent but twelve days in taking evidence. Says the report: “The house may Age upon this, and it will be called upon to judge from the proceeding', still more unusual and shocking, how disgraceful and criminally this case has been handled. Party prejudice, malice and a purpose to a*--complish an improper end seem to have deadened every sensibility in the gentleman from whom the house and country had a right to expect better things. Some Bise and iug nious mind seems to have guided them and it is far short of truth to say that this investigation has been anything but a miserable farce: and tile majority report is unfounded in truth, not justified by the evidence and i' defaced bv the repetition of partisan slanders not. sustained bv any testimony.” In* inclusion the report says: “When those entrusted with official power so forget right, justice, and duty, as the majority of the committee has done, it brings distrust and odium upon the party, and upon tin house, aud their action and conclusion should be rejected and rebuked by the house. Never has a great, question been so wretchedly, so feebly, so unjustly and so scandalously treated and adjudicated. But passion under injury and wrong is not the proper mode of redress, and if the house puts th*1 seal of its approval upon the report and recommendations of the committee. then we appeal to the people to rebuke and rigid it by their votes.” GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. persons. an average persons per 1 thmk it my duty to say era; average I lie male man-like.

Nkw \ oi:k. Aug. is.—Tho correspondence between Vice President Webb. of the New York Central, and Grand Master Workman Powderly was made public to-night. On August IG Powderly addressed a letter to Webb saying lie had been investigating the cause of the Central strike, and asking for an interview Monday to discuss the question of arbitrating the differences which existed between the New York Central and its Knights of Labor employes. Webb, in reply, granted the interview, but at the same time wished that the matter be presented to him in writing. Powderly replied the next, day, saying he had been called away from th** city and that he was obliged to commit to paper but would rallier discuss the matter in person. He says: “If I am correctly informed, old and faithful employes of the New York Central have been summarily dismissed from th)' service, of the company, because they were active members of the Knights of Labor. It is represented to un* that up to the tim** of tiler discharge they were faithful to the interests of the company and not one mark of discredit stands against the industrial record of any of these men who were discharged prior to August s, 1890. That, in brief. is the statement of tin* men. The frequency of the dismissal left but little room for doubt iii the minds of the m«*n that they were all in danger of discharge at a moments notice and lienee the strike. 'The whole question hinges upon the discharge of the knights Of labor because they are such. If it can be shoxvn that tiles** men were were working an injury to their employers right minded men xviii say they were treated as they deserved. If they were discharged for caus** the railroad company has everything to gain and nothing to lose from investigation. If they deserved dismissal    from the service of the company    none of us will ask for their reinstatement. If, however. they wen1 displaced because of their connection xvith Knights of Labor it should be know, for if it is to be the policy of th** New York Central that no Knight' of Labor are to be employed then a statement to that effect will clear nj) all doubts and there can be no future misunderstanding. There xviii be nothing then to arbitral*' so long as you hold to that opinion. The interests of the public, the interests of the company you represent, and the rights of men to organize for self-protection are all involved in this contest. The policy of the order of tile Knights of Labor is to work peacefully in the line of educational and legislative reform. It is not the policy of the. institution, no matter what its enemies may say, to enter hastily upon strikes. The present strike may be pointed to in refutation of that last assertion. Hundreds of eases that have been peacefully and quietly adjusted through the intervention of the Knights of Labor, although not heralded broadcast as they would have been had they ended in strik* s, prove that our aim is to avoid strikes rather than precipitate them. The interest of the public require that freight and passenger traffic should work smoothly. The interests of the company require exactly the same thing that such traffic may prove remunerative. The interests of th*) working people are the same as others, but their right to organize and select the organization they wish to belong to. is fully as dear to them as their pecuniary interests can possibly be. Here isan organization. the aim of which is to work for educational and legislative advantages. called upon to defend its members, who, up to the time of their dismissal, had worked only in an educational and legislative direction, .surely we have the right to question why they xvcre discharged. Each man, no matter how humble he is, has as much a part in nubile as any other man. True the New York Centralis tributary to the comfort and xvell being of the community, but the community gives to the corporation in question its strength and wealth, and of that community at least thirty per cent ar** working people and beking to that same element of society that dare not. organize for their own welfare. Some one has said since this strike began: ‘Money is not everything in this world.' Ile was a railroad direttor. I believe. He spoke truly, for liberty is far dearer to the laborer and that is that he struggles for: that is what is denied him when he is discharged for being a Knight of Labor, lf liberty was once valued so highly that men offered up life and treasure and sacred honor to gain it, surely I heir children should not bo blamed for striving .or it. Wheter they struck wisely in this case is yet to be determined. Who is to determine'? You may feel that you are right. The men may feel that they are right:    both are partisans, and if an Rupertial verdict, i< to be rendered, impartial men must arrive, at it by hearing both sides and then judging. The men are willing to submit th** case to such arbitration and xviii not be unreasonable. Will you consent to do the same? lf you xviii agree to submit ibis matter to arbitration we can meet and arrange the details and agree as to how the parties may be selected. The newspapers report that you are refusing to admit that arbitration can enter into the settlement of the trouble; but your letter leads me to believe you were misquoted and tiler*' is still hope for a speedy termination of the strke through arbitral ion.” To this communication from Powderly Vice President Webb replied as follow': “Replying to yours. I have to say that none of the persons discharged from this company prior to August, 1>88. and referred to in your communication were discharged because they were members of your order. The immediate superiors of each of 'aid persons reported to the dixi'iiin superintendent or superintendent of motive power, in each case good and sufficient cause for discharge of such persons, and I am informed th** division superintendent or superintendent of motive power investigated each case prior lo the discharge. and the facts of such discharge having been reported to the management of Hie company they were further investigated, and the action of the division superintendent or superintendent of motive power fully approved. The management of this company do not deem it consistent with its continuance and prosperity in business aud with the discharge of the duties it owes to the people to submit the propriety of its action in the discharge of oily of its employes to arbitration. I have read your communication with care, and I think the foregoing answers tho points presented by you and delines the position of this company." Mr. Webb - said to a 2reporter to-night that the freight service was complete and that everything working smoothly between here and Buffalo. All freight received yesterday had been cleared up and left for its destination. The places of till strikers have been filled and there xvas not a single vacancy on the road. Railroad Trainmen: and Frank Sweeney, grand master of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid Association of North America. Sargent, when asked in regard to the conference, said Powderly had invited them to meet with him. but lie had no idea what was wanted. The secret conference continued for some time and no one would tell the result. It is stated, however, by Sargent that the party will leave for New York to-night on business relative to the strike, but just what it is he would not say. Outside rumor has it that they are going down to consult with Webb. A committee from tile Switchmen’s Union waited upon the sheriff this morning and assured him that there would be no disorderly conduct on the part of the strikers: that if the sheriff’ considered it necessary the union would furnish as many men up to 5OO as he wanted who xvould be ready to be sworn in it' deputies to help Lim maintain order. The committee said the switchmen wanted it understood that they did not approve of any violence or disorderly or unlawful conduct. PARLIAMENT PROROGUED. LOOKS SERIOUS.

Mo., Aug. is.—Bobbers’C ut. thirteen milos from Sedalia, on Hie Missouri Pacific railroad, mad*' famous by the great robbery perpetrated there nine years ago by the James gang, again leaps into fame by the same method. At 2:39 o’clock yc'terday morning seven men held up a train there and robbed the ex-pre's car of 830,000. The train, the regular Kansas City passenger, left St. Louis at >:20 Saturday evening. At Tipton *»r California two men climbed on the back of the engine and remained concealed until Robbers' Cut, three miles from Otterville, was reached. At this point the. two men who had climbed over the tender suddenly appeared in the cab. and, covering the engineer and fireman xvith revolvers. compelled them to stop the train. Suddenly, as if they had sprung up * git of tin* earth, five other men xvith guns appeared, three on one side and two on the other. Wrx few words were 'aid. The engineer xvii' compelled to get down and lead two of tin* robbers to the express car, leaving the fireman in charge of the engine. The latter got down. and thinking the coast was clear, undertook to let passengers know what was going on. A big revolver frightened him so that Ic climbed back on the engine. The two robbers forced the cxpre» messenger. A. S. Avery,    to    hand    over    all the money packages not locked up in the through >af**. In less than ten minutes it was all done. The engineer xvas escorted back to his cab and ordered to pull out, xviii* Ii he did. Not more than half a dozen of the passengers in the coaches or sleepers knew what had happened, and no attempt was made to rob them. At Otterville the alarm was given, and within two hours officer' were in pursuit, but    tip    to    nine    o'clock last night    they    had    caught    nobody. Railroad and express officials will not state what the loss is, hut admit it xviii be very large. There are good grounds for putting it close to >30,OOO. Nobody was hurt. A posse which has been in search of tho train robbers since yesterday morning returned this morning. As not a trace of the robbers could be found the pursuit has been temporarily abon-doned. DIDN'T UK r MI CU AFTER M I . St. Lol l-. Aug. Is.—The seven men who held up the Missouri Uacific passenger train near Otterville yesterday morning are probably the most disappointed men in the country to-day. It was at first reported that they secured money ail*! jewelry to tho value of 890.000 from the express safe, but Superintendent Fuller,of the Missouri Uacific railroad, has received a telegram from I). Iv. Johnson, district superintendent at Kansas City, in which it is stat<*<1 that three packages of jewelry, consigned from St. Louis, three packages containing about 875 and two railroad packages xver** all that the robber' secured. S. A. Rider, of St. Louis, the consignor of the jewelry, said the packages were sent to Nebraska City and eontained jewelry valued at 81 OO. THE FLAME FIEND. London. Aug. 1>.—Parliament was prorogued to-day. The queen’s speech was read by the lord chancellor. It says that the relations of her majesty's government with the foreign powers continue to be pacific. Friendly attention has been called to th** inconvenience which might arise from a possible conflict over territorial claims in Africa. Therefore the queen’s government was negotiating xvith the powers mainly concerned with th** purpose of defining the boundaries within which the action of tin* respective government should be confined. The arrangement with Germany, dosing the most difficult of these questions, xva' completed, and hor majesty's ministers laid before parliament the history of the negotiations which had resulted in the cession of Heligoland to Germany: The speech then announces the arrangements with France whereby the French Algerian territory is separated from that of the British Niger Company. Tho agreement fora British protectorate over Zanzibar, and th** placing of Madagascar under th** protection of the French is also explained. With regard to the Behring Sea complications. her majesty informs parliament that she offered to submit them to arbitration for settlement. Tin* speech stat**' that the ease of th** Newfoundland and French fisheries dispute is on** which is occupying tho anxious attention of the government. While Europe is awaiting in deep anxiety the result of th** meeting of the two emperors a broad hint comes from St. Petersburg that shows how slender is the hope of continued peace. The j*»ur-nals of th** Russian capital publish to order articles effusively welcoming Emperor William, in which they admit tie* sincerity of his peaceful professions. They tell him. however, that Vienna is the place where it should operate, seeing that the treaty of Berlin has been violated in Bulgaria xvith tin* complicity of Avi'tria. And he is plainly told that Russia will accept no solution of Hie Bulgarian question which is not in conformity with th** treaty. This means that Russia xviii insist on Prince Ferdinac clearing out. a thing which could not be done without resistance, which would inevitably necessitate the intervention of a Russian army and a probable conflict with Austria. The new Greek minister of war emphasizes this hint by insisting that the peace effective of the army be doubled and the war effect iv*.* be rai'**d to 100,000 rn* n. And Russia has just ordered 5oo.ooo Hiles of th** latest improved pattern in France. The condition of Armenia is deplorable and the people have given up all hope of a cessation of the persecution to xvhich they ar** subjected at the hands of the Turks and Kurds. Tin y :. *w look to a Russian invasion a'their only safety. A Russian army of on** hundred thousand men, containing fully thirty thousand Armenians, is massed along the northern frontier ready to cross at short notice, and immense quantities of military stores ar**, gathered at Baton rn and Kars. On* of th** things expected from Emperor William's visit to th** czar is an agreement to gixe Russia a free hand in Armenia in the hope of staving I off the crisis in Europe. Horrible stories are in circulation of the barbar- j ohs tortures to which Armenian priso- ; ners in Constantinople ar>* subjected by I the Turkish authorities. Hi** Armen- j ians, who ar** a highly intelligent race. are in a state of ferment thro1 ghout th** j parts of the Turkish empire : :< which they are settled, and they xviii undoubtedly play an important part in til** conflict j which is undoubtedly coming. In Constantinople they occupy a strong position, commercially, and in the Turkish civil service, and would be able to deal Turkey a deadly blow. The success xvhich lias attended th** series of international conferences that have been held during the last. few year' in favor of arbitration ha> resulted in setting on foot another international movement which may hereafter be fruitful of important resuits. Amongst th** fori'iizn delegate' who assembled this year a very 'trong feeling prevailed in favor of tariff reform. Accordingly, in addition to tin* peace and arbitration conference, which is to bi* held in th** spring in Rome, an international tariff reform conference xviii likewix* be held.
