A COLOSSAL FAILURE.
Five million clollni'3 nml live years
have gone, and not one-half of the
tenth census 13 yet printed. And It
is doubtful if inoro than two-thud's
of that work over will sec the light.
Twelve quarto volumes of an ave
rage of 1,000 pages each and pro
fusely illustrated with maps have
now been published. These relate
to population, manufactures, agri
culture and meat productions, trans
poitation, cotton (two volumes)
valuation, taxation and public in
debtedness, newspapers, periodicals
and the seal fisheries, forestry (with
a large atlnS1), petroleum, and build
ing stones, and the first volume of
mortality statistics. It is believed
that before the Census Ufilcu ex
pires by limitation, the Did of next
March, in addition to the volumes
named, five more can be published,
relating to mortality, social statistics
of cities (in two' volumes), water
power and mining laws. But oven

K, 'g&ycven large volumes will go by de
It, fmilt. These deal with the defec
tive and delinquent classes, educa
tion and churches, the fisheries, me
chanics, insurance, social statistics
of mining, and miscellaneous.
The idea was te make it positively
the biggest thing out in censuses.
It was the centennial epoch, and
everything was on a sublime scale.
But a fatal error of judgment ruined
the enterprise at the outset. To
enable him to cover the wide range
of inquiry he proposed, the Super
intendent asked the co-operation of
Kjih . leading specialists all over the conn-
agents. This policy ruined the
census. The special agents weie
;leamed and famous men, but they
'-.Mvcrc inexperienced and ignorant in
'census work. To lake an example:
The Geological Survey was asked to
furnish the statistics of Indians in
their tribal relations that is, of the
wild Indians not taxed and eligible
to citizenship. Fortius item S 10,
000 was allowed the survey. Years
passed, and nothing could be learned
of that census of the wild tribes.
Finally, Major Powell sent to the
office one page of manuscript, which
is all the government ever got for
Only five men are now engaged in
the census office, where four years
agq,as many as 1,700 were at one
time borne on the rolls. But the
five know their duty and do it faith
fully, and so are able to turn off
more woik than as many hundreds
of the cattle that swarmed in the
long rooms during the early days of
the office. It was a maxim at that
time that the good clerks were kept
busy correcting the mistakes of the
The large bound quarto volumes
are published in an edition of 20,000
copies each. This is an addition to
the publication in pamphlet form of
many separate reports. The bound
editions are much too small to meet
the demand, and all the published
volumes arc now only to lie had at

THE undersigned, a Committee of Dl
tectorsoJ Ihe Lquitnblc Life As
surance Society of the United States,
appointed to formulaic the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Socictj' to the public, lcpoit:
1st The Society issues all the appiov.
ed fOTms of aisurance, including Ordl.
nary Life, Et dowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directois
which fonn of policy is taken by in.
2d The Life and Endowment fonns
of policy provide for annual eashdivi.
dends and a suircnder vnluc; arc lndit
putablc after three years and pajable
immediately after proof of death. "
3d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy are tho same 'as on the Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of the reserve and the accu.
mulnted profits in rash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing ycaj-s aro pust',
ho can, without any lnrgcr premium
than on an ordinary policy,-secure these
4th Experience shows that tho letuin
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po.
Iicies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of tho
assurance will bo only about tho interest
on the premiums.
5th Tontine policies, like others, are
paid in full in the event of death at any.
timo during tho term of the, policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payable immediately after duo proof of
0th Experience shows that the mov.
tality is lower among Tontino policy
holders, ns tho better lives seek this
kind of nssurances, which is a consider-,
ablo source of profit.
7th Tontino policies will be made
non-forfcltablo under tho laws of tho
State, if so desired at tho time the as
suranco is effected.
8th Tho Tontine system is fair and
just; its accounts aro accurately kept,
scparato from all other business; the
funds judiciously invested and improv.
cd, and the accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly appoitioncd.
9th The Society has since its organ!,
nation transacted a larger amount of
now business than any other Company,
whllo its new business for tho first half
of tho present year is $1,750,000 larger
than that of tho first half of 1881. It
has Assets of i?GO,000,COOj over $14,000,
000 of Surplus, and its ratio of Surplus
to Liability is gi eater than that of any
