Noble late yesterday public his letter to Mayor Grant, denying the latter's application for the recount of the populi tion of New York city. The secretary re- views the correspondence between Mayor Grant ami the census officials and quote: the law under which he makes this de- cision. The secretary says that the de- mand rejred solely on the alleged super- vision of the municipal enumeration by a representative of the United States ccnans and devoies a large portion of the letter in discussing this question. The secretary says: The letter of introduction to the mayor, given to Mr. Olcott as supervising the municipal census, clothed him with no such authority. It strictly con lined him to informing himself by conference and otherwise, as to the methods that were pursued in the enumeration. Mr. Olcntt was supplied with no data from the United States bureau to any cojnpari.son of receipts and dinburae. inents as they occnrred, and he did not attempt, it. He did not and could not examine the names and residences put down by the police, either consult with the members of that force, direct them or speak" to them as to the performance oi their duty. They were a body entirely apart from him and beyond his control. He wiis an observer, as were very many others present while the work was being done. It was impossible, therefore, that the clerk of tha census bureau could, in point of fact, have supervised the taking of the municipal census, even had he been authorized to do so. -Mr. Olcoit did not make full and de- HOPK FOR BlilL'HALL A SENSATIONAL LETTER FROM THE MYSTERIOUS ''COLONEL." e Ackui.wlmliceii That He Shot Toung In Blanheim Koars of an of th.
