his American friends, has borne golden

The brains to contrive all this and money
to pay for it were lurnished by the ex-Treasurer
of Louisiana, whose name has been
bandied about on men's lips for weeks, in com
pany with the words defaulter, embezzler, and
the like. Has the man transmuted bis very
shame to cold, or rather has lie achieved suc
cess in spite of evil report? Will the money he
realizes from this syndicate's wonderful pur
chase of his Central American mines, in spite
of tidincs harsh enough to rum many a surer
scheme and stouter heart be used by Major
Burke in redeeming and retiring the "baby
bonds" and others over-issued in his native
State? This last some of his friends believe.

vast Hondurean placer and silver mines, which
Major Burke has just placed so advantageously
in ijonaon, is uougi&s jj. v. urowa, a weu-
With him iu the party who left here yesterday
were Mining Engineer Phillips, also a
miner et experience, and Mr. William Hod
ding, an agent of the great banking
house of Rothschild, and, to some extent, a
representative abroad of the Louisiana Lot
tery. Mrs. Hodding is a daughter of that well
known jurist. Judge Jennings, and she and her
daughter accompany Mr. Hoddings as far as
San Francisco. There the party will meet Mr.
E. E. Tncker, one of the most expert placer
miners in California. Mr. Tucker is still a
young man, but his exploits in deviating the
bed of the Sacramento river, and reclaiming
thousands of acres of agricultural land in the
Sacramento Valley after the famous decisions
were rendered in the former's favor, seem to
have pointed him out to the Burke syndicate as
THE EIGHT MAS
to work the 90 miles of river bed which Bogran
made over to Burke, and which Burke has un
loaded on these English shareholders.
All this is the culmination of an internatioral
romance in which the actors are the President
of Honduras, Major E. A. Burke, Colonel Mc
Murdo, of London, the most famous of Ameri
can promoters, now deceased, and the Argus
eyed newspaper press of two Continents. It was
possinie lor nurice, in me lace 01 a criminal in
dictment itselt, to consummate this gri
financial deal, to which the Republic of Hi
duras, tne State of Louisiana and Great Britain
are all three parties. If the London Herald had
not published, just when it did, the news,
cabled from New Orleans, that Burke's ac
counts with the State were found, to every
body's intense amazement, to be short, this
great mininc deal would have gone thronch
ionjrasro. If Colonel McMurdo had not died
suddenly last spring, almost with pen in hand,
and in tbe very act of closing the documentary
part of Burkes transfer to the committee of
stockholders, it would hare gone through still
There is a queer issue of fate and queer
flavor of instability of human fortune pervad
ing the whole affair. These men gambled
with millions and almost lost. Where and how
is Burke, now? Is Major Burke in Belgium
now? This question was asked of one of the
mining expedition, as be got off the steamer.
"He's not where people over here have been
led to believe him. You can depend on that,"
was tbe answer." As soon as his London stock
holders will let him, I think he will return to
Louisiana. How is he? My Qod! Don't askt

being worn away by a tremendous grief. Mr.
K. H. Lowe, the international steamship agent
and purveyor of travelers' comforts, sailed on
tbe Teutonic with Major Burke and his wife,
on October 2. The Major was returning to the
United States to face his accusers."
Nobody over here has ever understood ex
actly why Major Burke left the Tentonic at
Queenstnwn. and returned post haste, with his
wife, to London. It was ascribed to fear and a
guilty conscience. I asked Mr. Lowe yesterday,
in view of the fact that the Burke properties
had i.ow at last been successfully launched in
tbe English market, jnat what he knew of the
Major's departure at Queenstown.

it, as he now seems to have done, and
the second of these occasions was the

Teutonic It's a curious story, of thrilltae in
terest. Major Burke acquired from President
Louis Bogran at, and after the World's Fair at
New Orleans, concessions of territory
wbicb have since made the ex
Treasurer of Louisiana, the dictator, practi
cally, of the mining as well as the fruit ship
ping interest of Honduras. Bojrran had be
come indebted to Burke for enormous sums,
some of this spent on the World's Fair and
some in the Tima-Democrat, Burke's
paper, on Bogran's behalf. The only
way Bogran could pay this back to
Burke who bad in the meantime, for
lack of cash, and by reason of his enormous
outlays become somewhat embarrassed was
by presenting him with a golden river bed 90
miles long, and other vast mining claims down
m tbe Central American Republic. Burke
went down to Honduras. He had been down
there repeatedly. I believe, and Boeran said to
him: "I'll not only give you one river bed; Til
give you two: now you see what you can make
out of them."
NOT A CAEE Df SIGHT.
"Last January Major Bnrke went to London
to organize a stock company to subscribe to
shares and develop bis Honduras properties. I
was In London when be arrived, and he was as
jolly and chipper, handsome and agreeable a
man as you could meet anywhere. He didn't
seem to have a care, and was quite sanguine
about disposing of his mines. Colonel Mc
Murdo, the rich American, one of tbe most
famous promoters this country has ever sent
abroad, became interested in Major Burke's
affairs, and matters went on well.
"One rnornirg Cotonel McMurdo came down
to the office to execute the last lesral document
which would vest the title of tbe Burke prop
erties in tbe new share syndicates, where Mc
Murdo had arranged to purchase tbem. Every
thing was in readiness, and be was abont to
sign his name when death interfered. He was
carried out of tbe room helpless, and ordered
by his doctors to Reek a change of air in Paris.
He obeyed, but to no purpose. The end had
come, to all intents and purposes, when the pen
dropped from his nerveless Angers.
"This was late in the spring, but Major
Bnrke set to work at once through other pro
motors to organize other snare romna.nie

bo is a square and honorable man, and that in
time he will make that apparent I and my
expedition are bound to San Francisco, whence,
on the morning of my arrival, we will sail south
to Amapala, on the Pacific coast of Honduras.
That is an average of five or six days. From
Amapala we pack inland on muleback 7U
leagues, or 210 miles, to Jutilcapa, the nearest
town and postoffico to our mines, eight leagues
distant On the way we pass the capital of
Honduras, Tegucigalpa, three days' journey
"The last time I made the journey I landed
on the Atlantic coast at Truixillo, trom which
the jaunt to the mines occupied just five days,
although the distance is fully SOS miles. I ac
complished this feat of 60 miles a day on mule
back, over rocgh mountains and through al
most virgin forests by using five animals, rid
ing one, packing one, sending the native guide
ahead on one, and reserving two extra saddle
mules. Puerto Cortes is another of the steam
ers which ply regularly to New Orleans, laden
with bananas in the main. This Iruit traffic
was organized by Major Burke, and all its
freight is carried by contract out of New Or
leans on the Illinois Central Railroad. This is
the road of which the Hon. Patrick Donan, of
Devil's Lake, Dak., and of Wall street Now
York, is a leading feature, and to which he
gave a great prominence a year or two ago by
the discovery of
TTTO BAXAXA BELTS
in the territory it tapped one in Dakota and
one in Honduras. The mnleswhlch packed our
mining machinery required six weeks to make
the journey from the coast to the mines, and
back. The plant taken on mule back, weighed
at least 150,000 pounds.
"No, we don't carry any timber houses, all
ready to set up. We live in mnd houses out
there. .But we ha7e just packed alOO-stamp
milt to be run by electricity. What do you
think of that? The electrical plant and all
those weighty stamps traversing forests and
mountains on the shoulders of mules! Tbe
whole route is over mountains pretty much,
with here and there an occasional high plateau.
Through this country are found the forest
pastures for cattle that I know are tbe best in
the world. Beef cattle are worth 7 or Ssols (a
sol is about 72 cents in Honduras), say SS or $6 a
bead. These same cattle, shipped to Guate
mala, which Honduras supplies with beef,
bring nearly $30 a head. See the profit there.
"These mountain .forests abound with trop
ical verdure, and tbe plateaus especially afford
a great deal of game, such as wild turkeys.
deer, panthers and monkeys. At the gold
mines themselves we are entirely surrounded
with mountains. There is no alluvial valley
on each side of tbe river, as in California. In
Honduras the mountains slope precipitately
toward the river bed, and there is nothing
there to work except the bed of the river Itself.
Of course to reach that a new channel must be
cut All the gold and gravel of ages has been
swept down the mountain slopes, straight over
the banks of tbe Jayape river. A great deal of
gold was taken from that stream in tbe time of
toe Spaniards, iuu or mi years ago. .even now
the native women, when they want mony or
have leisure, pan out some gold. At our works

of about ten feet to the mile. That of course.

"Three London companies, with much capital,
are now working, or rather will, be working,
these mines when I get there. They are the
Retiro Placer and Quartz Mining Company, the
Opoteca Silver Mining Company and the Hon
duras Gold Placer Mining Company, limited.
These companies were sold in London by J. H.
Morris, of Tbrog's Neck, the racing and lottery
magnate. We employ tfiOO to 2.000 workmen,
natives, of course, as there is nobody else much
to be had. Our mines are working on the old
California principle of a large flume with
Chinese pumps and sluices.

attention of Great Britain, and is now drawing

London on the strength of the statement that

THE CENSUS OF 1892.
Superintendent Porter's Eeport
the Preliminary Work.
OVER TWO THOUSAND CLERKS
Will Be Temporarily Employed at i the
THE PLANS FOE THE ENUMERATION.
Washington, November 9. The re
port of Robert L. Porter, Superintendent of
the Eleventh Census, to the Secretary of
the Interior concerning the operations of
the census offices since June 1, 1889, which
has just been made, explains in detail the
vast amount of work that has already been
done preliminary to the active field work
that will begin next year. The arrange
ments that have been made for the accommo
dation of the office employes whose numbers
will increase to 2,000 and then decline, pro
vides for an expansion of office room as it is
needed and then for its contraction as less of
it is required, so that the expense for rent
shall never be greater than tbe utmost econ
omy warrants. The report says:
The method inaugurated by the office and ap
proved by the Secretary of the Interior will
not only bring the best work and leave the
superintendent free to act with great
rapidity when the demand is greatest for
clerks, but is in tho line of practical civil
service reform. Z s
TO PUSH THE VTOIJK.
Several important reports of the eleventh
census will be 'ready for publication during
the fall and winter of 1890, and the Super
intendent makes a suggestion, which, if
adopted by Congress, will secure, he thinks,
the publication ot the volumes speedily
after they are ready for the printer. He
would avoid the delay which accompanied
the printing of the tenth census volumes in
the Government printing office by having
volumes of this census printed by private
contract or by having the census office
print and publish them itself.
The purchase at a small cost of the census
printing establishment, now in active opera
tion in the office, will, he says, save thou
sands of dollars and expedite the work to an
extent that would hardly be credited by
those unacquainted with the working of a
census office. In the opinion of the Super
intendent, if the census office could control
the reports until they are ready for the
document room, an enormous saving of
money would be effected and prompt publi
cation insured, and such a course would
settle the question of responsibility for de
lay, which is difficult to ascertain under the
existing system. The work preliminary to
the enumeration is well in hand, and a con
siderable amount of it is already done.
SOME OP THE PLANS.
The population schedule has been pre
pared, and in addition to the information
called for by the tenth census schedule will
ascertain what langnage is spoken by every
person 10 years of ageand upward, how long
adult males of foreign birth have been in
the United States and whether they are
naturalized; how many children each mar
ried woman has had and how many of them
are living, and the classification by race will
include mulattos, quadroons and octoroons.
The classification of occupations will be
more complete than ever before.
Owing to improvements in the records of
some of the States and to the active co-operation
of 80,000 physicians, to whom registers
have been sent, the vital statistics will be
more complete than it was possible to make
them in the census of 1830. An important
new feature of this work is a special study
of birth and death rates and of the
principal causes of death in 24 of our largest
cities; a Bpecial study of the influences of
race upon fecundity and morality, and a
special study of the relations of occupation
to death rates and to particular causes of
deatb. The inquiry regarding the names,
organizations and length of service of the
surviving veterans ot the Rebellion who
served tbe United States will call for a re
port of eight quarto volumes of 1,000 pages
each. The report goes on to say:
The manifest and manifold difficulties in ar
riving at the debt represented by the apparent
debt, as it appears on tbe face of the public
records of the country, are at first thought
almost insurmountable. Furthermore, the cost
ot such an investigation, if pursued by the
direct method of searching all records and can
vassing the parties to whom they relate,
would doubtless be greatly in excess
of any amount appropriated. Indeed a
rough estimate by the Superintendent of
Census would indicate that,if this method were
pursued and the actual recorded indebtedness
of private corporations and individuals ascer
tained, it would cost a sum nearly equivalent
to the entire amount appropriated for census
purposes. Under these circumstances some
preliminary and local inquiries have
been instituted in the States of
Illinois, JNew lorK ana .Massachusetts, and in
a short time tbe results of investigation will be
given to the public in a census bulletin. The
statistics of agriculture, it is expected, will be
more complete than ever before, and may in
clude some new features in relation to irriga
tion, dairy and poultry products, to ranch
cattlo and the number of animals other than
those on farms.
The preliminary work in the division of
manufactures indicates that tbe statistics will
he more complete and accurate than tbe conn
try has ever bad before. In the matter of
labor and wages, tbe schedules will seek to
obtain detailed separation between the so
called "productive" and "non-productive"
forces, in order to ascertain the true proportion
of labor and wages employed in actual prod
uction: a classification wages table has been
arranged to show the number of
persons employed and the various
rates of wages .paid, and addi
tional inquiries have been incorporated to
show, as nearly as possible, the actual cost of
production. The preparations. tor tbe enumer
ation of Indians promise to secure the first ac
curate enumeration that they have ever hail.
In conclusion, the report says that many of the
important divisions of the census are now well
advanced with their work. If satisfactory ar
rangements can only be made for prompt pub
lication of the results the Superintendent is
confident that the census will not only be accu
rate and cover all the statistical investigations
required by la,w, but will be out on time.
