Our Voting Population.
The enumerators have returned
their lists to County Court Clerk
Hammer from eleven districts in the
county, as follows: 1st, 805; 4th,
121; 5th, 130; Gth, 140; 7th, 120; 8th,
259; 9th, 305; 10th, 179; 11th, 195;
2th, 125; 13th, 251; or a total of
2533 for the eleven districts. It is
evident that the enumerators in
several of the districts given have
done their work in a very careless
manner, as- the enumeration in two
or three of them as shown above is
ess than the vote polled last Novem
ber. It will require a close and full
enumeration of the remaining four
districts to bring the total up to 3000.
The enumeration ten years ago was
3015 for the county. The 1st district
6hows a gain of 111 in the ten years.
The enumerators in several of the
districts should be required to add the
omissions to their lists, as otherwise
