The report note changes, and says that from the population of tbe United States the committee subtracted tbe population of the District of Columbia, Oklahoma and Utah. Tbe remiunder was (il,l)(iH,!Hiti. With this numlier differeut ratios were obtained by taking as a divisor any pro-Hsed number. Each number was taken from SSti to 875. Trials were made until a nnmber was found which would give a ratio which, iu application, would seen re each state against any loss iu membership, ami iu no instance leave a major fraction. This number was found to be &'.. The ratio was 17:i!Hl. The uum- ber of members obtained on an even division wasSi'.l. The additional 17 needed to make iWJ was secured by giving another member to each of the states huv-ing left to it a major fraction. These states are: Alabama, California, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa. Kentucky. Maine, Mary-laud, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island. South Carolina, South Dakota. Texas, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin, This apportionment gives the Iiepublicau states a small advantage. This could only lie expected from a partisan house. Tbe oscillation of the census may preclude any apportionment this time. It is to be hoped it will, as the census will not be certaiuly known for nt least a year yet.

Will you as an act of jus lice give place to the following corrections of statements made in your last issue in regard to the shooting of rov son. Alfred J. Puckett. by Billy Cook? First, the shooting took place after dark. Second, there was no strayed calf then or any other time, on my premises belonging to James M. Todd. Third. I had no hired man then. I have a small boy living in my family, who used no rough language to James M. Todd or his stepsons. All the bad language used was by Billy Cook and his two brothers. Jiillv Cook shot nt me and the bullet .l.,', tl.i.l 1, .,.,.1 l. . 1...I- ..(- j wuiBiicu UJ my ucnu, ami lie ouuv tiv Hi, i son before my son tried to disarm him. He fired four shots at us in all. The first shot went over his head, the second went through his coat and took the skin off his shoulder. The last bullet passed into his body. While Billy Cook was shooting my son, James M. Todd, his two stepsons, Melvin and Adelbert Cook, John Crilly and a man whose identity is still uncertain, were assnlting me at the same time in a most ferocious manner, which prevented me from assisting my son to the house after he was shot. Neither my son nor myself was armed -never carried arms, though we were warned over a year ago to look out for Billy Cook, but paid no attention to it, j which was very near being fatal neglect ! for us. Aext, .billy Cook will be twenty years j next month. Melvin's and Adelbert's i ages are eighteen and sixteen years respectively. John Crilly is also sixteen years old. He took a very active part in the affair, he and Melvin Cook telling ! Billy Cook to shoot old Puckett, after , the shooting of my son, but either his re-1 volver would not work or he had no more bullets with him. They did their best to ; kill me, however. Billy Cook and the others are out under j bonds. j I hope those papers that copied your j article will do me the justice to copy this : also. E. H. Puckett, Vallejo Towxsmr, Decembsr 14, 18110.
