hours and minutes he has been at work,
and how many persons he has enumer

mately 53,000 enumerators and thirty days
are allowed for the completion of the

to be examined in the census office is
somewhere between one million and a mil

"It Is difficult for any one not familiar
with census work to form an idea of the

HAD MONEY- TESTED BY MACHINE.
Inventions of t'apt. Porter Guard the
Public Against Counterfeiters.
From the Chicago News.
Copt. Thomas I. Porter, of the United
States Secret Service, has directed his in
ventive faculty for some years toward the
perfection of devices for safeguarding the
public against counterfeiters. He Is an
expert on bogus money, whether coin or
paper. He was the first to discover the
Jacobs bogus revenue stamp and point
out Us defects. He recently has perfected
three devices, which were suggested to
him by his work In the treasury depart
ment. One is a coin detecter, another an
automatic counter of coin, and a third a
tie for bags containing money or valua
bles, that, -if once opened, cannot be
Two or three counterfeit detectors have
been given to the public by the Chicago
Secret Service man. but his latest inven
tion in that line is pronounced by treasury
officials and bank clerks to be remarka
ble. It' is an instantaneous tester. A coin
that has a suspicious look is tested in a
slot cut in a metal tongue at the top of a
small steel box. If it is good it passes
readily through the slot, falls upon an
apron beneath and rolls off on a square of
plate glass giving the "ring” test. If tile
coin is undersized it will not ring when
it strikes the plate. If it is oversized it
will no! pass through the slot. The coin
also drops on a disk attached to a bar;
If ot light weight the balances will not
"Counterfeit coins are either too light
or too heavy,” said Capt. Porter. "I have
never found them of the exact weight and
the exact size. Gold coins seldom are
The counting machine which will be used
In the sub-treasury is another simple de
vice that docs away with the counting of
coins by hand, for the silver, nickel and
copper coins cannot be weighed like gold,
because of Ihe variations in thickness of
the coins. The principle of the machine
Is that a coin dropped through a tube of
slightly larger diameter will fail flat at
the bottom. A plunger at the liottom of
the tube, throws the coin out of the ma
chine and registers it at the same time.
The handler of the money has only to
look out for plugged and defective coins
as he sweeps the money across the table
Into the machine. The record in counting
money has been 30,000 dimes in an hour.
Capt. Porter's little machine wfll count
30,000. Tubes of varying size for any coin
from a penny to a dollar are furnished
with each machine.
The captain's other device for the safe
guarding of the contents of a bag is a
metal oval, armed with teeth on the inside
of jaws that are hinged on one end. A
staple on one Jaw pierces the other ut
the free end and a seal wire to it holds
the bag intact. The eeai muFt be broken
before the Jaws can be opened and tlie
contents of the bag released.
Capt. Porter had another invention some
time ago for the detection of counterfeit
pai>er money by reproducing the portraits
on the various bills, but the government
would not consent to a reproduction of any

LI HUNG CHANG'S REMEDY.
Wants to Decapitate Leaders of
Boxers and Make l*eaee.
Hong Kong, June 22.—L1 Hung Chang,
who was interviewed in Canton yesterday,
said he would leave for Pekin on June
27 in obedience to an order from the Em
press to suppress the Boxers end to make
peace with the Powers.
He lndosed the opinion that he is the
only man In China capable of coping with
the situation. He said he believed the
Boxers to be a "rabble led away by fanat
icism and anti-Christian feeling," but he
also declared that the native Christian
leaders were mucti to blame inasmuch as
they engendered litigation in the native
courts. He asserted that he did not re
gard the Boxers as a poliiical society and
that in his opinion the Empress had been
misled and misinformed.
Prince Li said lie had been officially in
formed that til** Taku forts fired upon the
allied fleet because the admirals sent an
ultimatum calling for the removal of the
soldiers. He does not Interpret that act
as a declaration of war and he has not
received any instructions- to the effect that
war has been declared.
His remedy for the situation is to de
capitate the leaders of the Boxers, to send
their ignorant followers home, and to
make peace with the Powers.

here is that Russia should make common

those of tlie other Powers, and prevent
