WlXKES-BAIUfE SUNDAY MOEKIXG UEADEK. MARCH 11. 1900. 6 PLAINS. IT WILL SIZE US UP. PLYMOUTH. 7yvTvOm now the department of the Interior baa not even a copy for the census office tt-elf. Bnt the laif presiding for the twelfth census makes no special provision for 'an Indian census, nor does It authorize such a report as was made ten years ago. It is at this point that tbe real difficulties of the census office regarding the Indiana begin The Indian population, tnen, cannot be treated by itself and described in a separate report. It also aeema Illogical to -class the Indians among the ordinary population of the United States. The Indian tribe is in many respects a distiuct nationality, although since 1871 congress baa been doing its best to' destroy all traces of tribal Independence or self government Moreover, the tribal Indians are-not citizens of the United States. The rcocTratioDs upon which they live- are not legally parts of the state or territory which surrounds them, and state and territorial laws do not apply to the" or to the Indians upon it Acta of congress do not apply to reservation Indians unless such application la explicitly authorized In the acL. Under such conditions it seems impossible for the census office to class Indians as a part of the ordinary inhabitants of tbe states and territories. 1.1 llri li Ira Utl hi -v: 8 CASH OR CREDIT, is; Not 41 EAST MARKET fjlviii Connor, of Hudson, haa returned from Htileiou after an aoeeuoe -oTTtwo years.

Cbi TaVioi; In the I.ob if, ISpectal Correepondence.J WiEnisGTox, March A Tislt to tbe census office and a glimpse at Census Director Merriam's busy force will disabuse the mind of any one who thinks that census taking Is a political piciilc. Few persons appreciate the magnitude of the work. The eleventh census cost more thnn $11,000,000, and In th? twelfth census Brfllce-fofce of over 000 for about two years and a field force of over 50,000 for from two weeks to a month will be employed. The Hollerith tabulating machines, by which the population is counted and CENSUS DIRECTOR MERRIAM. the returns are tabulatod, makes census taking a huge Industrial The census office becomes a factory and the director tif-eensus a captain of indus tiT- The United States was the first nation of modern times to order and execute a periodical national census. The ancient Hebrews, while In the wilderness, before" reacnin'K the promised land, by direction of their leader, Mom, made an enumeration of their fightiug men between the ages of 20 and of whom there were 000,000. In Palestine there were occasional enumerations of the people for taxing and military purposes. The Greeks and Romans also had the system of enumeration of population and ascertainment of Individual wealth for like purposes. But for lack of facilities the methods necessarily employed in' those times gave far from satisfactory results and did not approach the accuracy ani completeness that are possible today. In this country there was some doubtful guessing as to population before the first census was taken in 1790, but such has been the uniformity of the rate of Increase as shown by successive census returns that a safer rule for determining the population of the colonies at any particular period would be to apply, by a reverse process of calculation, the rate of increase since ascertained. -T-he-fiTst-act-of congress, dated March 1, for taUiug tiie census Is drawn in rigid conformity with the constitution and directs the United States marshals to came the number of inhabitants within their respective districts to be taken. The enumeration was to begin the first Monday In August aud close within nine months thereafter. The free persons were to be distinguished from others males from femalesand Indians' not taxed were to be omitted from the enumeration. Free males of 10 years and over were to be distinguished from those under that age. The report of the first census Is comprised in a pamphlet of 52 pages. The marshals made their reports to the president by the 1st of September, 1791. There was no superintendent of the census or census olfjee located at tho seat of government. The president was not specially authorized by law to publish the returns of the marshab. The first report was printed by William Duane in 1802. The aggregate population of the states was 3,029,214: that of the Southwest territory, 35,091. Thomas Jefferson, then secretary of state, certified to the correctness of the schedule of population Oct. 24. 1791. The second census was taken in 1800, and they have followed by decades ever since. There lias always been more or less opposition to census taking on the ground that it was prying into the private affairs of the people. Sometimes it has been more, sometimes it has been less, but opposition has always lurked In the pathway of the census taker. The chief difficulty In the way of obtaining free and ready Information has been, strange to say, an admixture of fear and superstition. It will be remembered by students of the Bible that an enumeration of the people of by Joab, acting under the orders of King David, was followed by a three days' pestilence which carried oil some 70,000 of the recently counted individuals. It was thought at tho time that David and bis superintendent of census had no authority to do this thing, and the nation suffered for their supererogation. That Impression flourishes today with all Its pristine vigor in the minds of Mohammedans and other oriental peoples and Is not altogether extinct In some parts of the United States. The act mitborizlng the twelfth cen sus provides that It shall be restricted to inquiries relating to the population, to mortality, to the products of agricul ture and of manufacturing and me chanical establishments. The only volumes that will be prepared and pub lished In connection with the twelfth cenMis, excepting several special reports, will relate to the foregoing topics, and these volumes will be designated as nnd constitute the census report and must be published not later thnn the 1st day of July. 1902. There nre ninny, difficulties which must be overcome by the census office which Sre only fully realized by those In charge of the work. Legal questions continually arise. As a sample of the troublesome, problems to be Bolved take the Indian census, which fairly bristles with legal difficulties. In lhOO the census law provided that a "special report upon the Indians should be nmilo. A volume of seven hundred odd pages wns published, profusely Illustrated and touching every point of tbe Indian problem. For onco Iu hialory "Poor Iai" was accorded Jus tice. The volume was so pretty that rf e. af. TL: Barrios at tbe German Reformed ohurob, Willow atreet, to-morrow will be fol-low: In German at 13 a. ra. In English, 7 p. co. buudiy acuonl at 3 p. to, 8.

On the otUor" hand. It Is equally lmposr siblc to ignore them and omit them entirely, for the constitution of the United States says that "representatives shall be apportioned among the sever- tl stales according tbelf respective 1 numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state; excluding Indians not taxed." All these- points are subjected to the ruost careful examination in the census office, and when a decision as to the legal obligation of the office has beeu reached the statisticians turn their attention to the economic and social aspects of the question in hand. Experts are consulted, the Important tinesfUTWtigation areTnapped out, and inquiries are so framed as to bring out the desired Information in a form In which it can be handled with the Hollerith machines. At tbe same time these questions must be put in such a way that they will neither be misunderstood nor likely to evoke antagonism or false replies. No pains are spared to interest the public in the work and to secure general and hearty co-operation. Without that the most careful work at Washington or by the enumerators must prove fruitless. The census office at Washington has not a monopoly of the difficulties In the work of enumerating. Many of 'the 50.000 enumerators, who will be placed uuder a time limit not exceeding a month, will have many obstacles to overcome. They will have to move with celerity and along well defined lines, which the natural conditions will sometimes oppose. For instance, our new possessions will furnish roads hitherto unexplored by the census taker. The law directs that the census of Alaska and Hawaii shall be taken this year, and, while the latter may not present extreme difficulties, it can be easily understood that there are many troubles iu store for the operators in Alaska. Tbe great stretches of almost uninhabited between the towns the scattered cabins of the diggers and placer miners, which must frequently be reached by new and imperfect roads over bleak mountains and Icy streams, will make the work of the enumerator exceedingly difficult and sometimes perilous. The census office has sent out circulars to various interests appealing for prompt and full replies to the printed CEKSI7S TAKIN'G IX ALASKA. questions asked, and tbe people generally' are urged to give such assistance to the enumerators as will insure the expeditious and thorough performance of the duties assigned the office of the twelfth census. If the solicitations and requests of the director of the census are met by the people In the same spirit as they are we may be assured of such a compilation of facts and figures as to our population, wealth and resources as the nineteenth century closes as will give every American just cause for pride in his country. SamTKL HrBBARD. Queer Auctions. A Putch auction at Cape Town is ire-quently exciting. If a house is to be sold, the auctioneer offers "50 golden sovereigns fenhc man who first bids Nobody bids. A pause, and then "Fifty golden sovereigns for the man who first bids 4.900." This is kept up until a bid is secured. Rut it by no means follows that the house is sold to this bidder. No. the auctioneer is then at it agniu. Say that 4.400 is the first bid. Tbe auctioneer cries: are, 25 golden sovereigns for the first nan who has tbe courage to bid 4,000." Perhaps no one has it Then 25 is offered for a 4,550 bid. If there Is eventually no bid above the the man who made that bid is saddled with the house. Otherwise he pockets bis bonus and gets off free of tt all. NAVAL NOTES.
