To Hid Coming Census,
Bureau Of Census Issues A
Regarding The Enumeration
SIiov.s The Questions Requir
ing An Answer
Washington, D. C, Fob. 10.
What tho census enumerators are re-
Qujred to learn regarding tho place
of birth of native-born and foroijgn-
born persons, and other personal
facts concerning tho latter class, In
taking tho Thirteenth United States
census, beginning April 15 next, is
fully sot forth in tho printed In
etructlona prepared by the United
States Census Bureau to guide them
In filling the population schedule. It
la pointed out tfiat all tho questions
relate only to conditions existing on
April 15, tho "Consu3 Day."
On tho subject of place of birth
of a native-born person tho instruc
tions state that if the porson was
toorn In the United Scatea tho enu
merator is to give tho state or ter
ritory (not city or town) in which
born. A person born in what is
now West Virginia, North Dakota,
Gouth Dakota, or Oklahoma should
bo reported as so born, although at
the tmo of birth' tho particular reg
ion may have had a different name.
Relative to conjugal condition, tho
enumerators are to , report whether
Uio person is single, married, widow
ed, or divorced. Married persons are
to be asked if they have been mar
ried before. If the present marriage
Is tho first, the fact is to bo indi
cated by tho sign "M 1;" but if it
Ja th6 second or subsequent marriage,
then the enumorator is co write
"M 2," moaning married more; tnan
The question calling for tho num
ber of years of tho present marriage
la declared by the census bureau to
pply only to persons reported as
marriod, and tho answer should give
tho number of years married to tho
present husband or wife. Thus a
woman who may havo been married
for ten years 'to a former husband,
but has been married only 3 years
to her present husband, should be
returned as marrred 13 years. Tho
number of years entered should be
tho number of completed years. A
person who on April 15, the "Census
Day" has been married threo years
and 11 months should bo returned
as married 3 years. For a person
married less than 1 year, tho entry'
Is to bo "0", meaning less than 1
In the case of porsons speaking
Polish or reporting that they were
born in Poland, which is no longer
nn independent country, tho enumer
ator Is to inquire whether tho birth
place was In what is now known as
German Poland, or Austrian Poland,
or Russian Poland, and ho must
write tho answer accordingly as Po
land (Gor.), Poland (Aust.j, or Po

Tho question caljing for tho yoar
of immigration to tho United StatOB
applies to all forolgn-born poisons,
malo and female, of whatever ngo.
It should bo answered, therefore, for
every porson whoso birthplaco was
In a foreign country. The enumera
tor must enter tho year In which tho
person enmo to tho United States.
If ho has been In the United Sluts
more than once, tho year of his ar
rival Is to bo stated.
Tho inquiry- whethor naturalized
or alien applies only to forclgn-born
males 21 years of ago and over. It
does not apply to females, to for
eign-born minors, or to any male
born in the United States. If the
person was born nbroad, but has be
come a full citizen either by taking
out second or final papers of natural
ization or through tho naturalization
of his parents while ho was under
tho ago of 21 years, tho onumeratoi
Is to write "Na" (for naturalized).
If ho has declared his Intention to
become an American citizen and tak
en out his "first papers," tho enu
merator Is to write "Pa." If he has
taken no stops toward bocomlng an
American citizen write "Al" (for
The inquiry as to the ability to
speak English applies to all persons
10 years of ago or over. If English
Is spoken, tho enumerator must
write "English" in tho proper col
umn. If the person enumerated Is
not nblo to 'speak English tho enu
merator Is required in such cases
only, to wrlto out the name of the
language spoken, as French, German,
Italian, etc. If moro than ono Ian
guago is spoken by a person who,
however, does not speak English,
then the enumerator Is to write the
name of that language which is hit
native langungo or mother tongue.
Being Derived By Patients
"Tho patients at tho State Tuber
culosis hospital are Improving right
along," said Financial Officer C. P.
Franks of that institution, who was
in tho city on official business tlr

14 pounds and many of them now
have no excessive temperature, which
Is pretty good evidence that they are
being benefited by tho treatment.
Tho eight new cottages are complet
ed, but cannot be used until fur

time yet. They will probably be
opened by the time the warm weath

tho Institution will bo considerably

Cause Of High Prices, Says
In tho Columbus Dispatch of Tuo
day Is an interesting communication
from Mr. W. B. Pcltor of Centorbmg
anent the high prices of commodities.
In which tho writer quite conclusive
ly establishes that tho tariff law Is
responsible for the condition that ex
ists. Tho communication of Mr. Pol
tcr la as follows:
To tho Editor of tho Dispatch:
Sir: As to tho high cost of liv
ing, some writers soem to think the
farmer fixes tho prices. Others think
Its extravagant living, whllo still oth
ers think tho cold storage men are to
blame. Nono of these reasons sat
isfies my mind. Tho farmers cannot
fix a price, because they can't com-
'blno, their interests are so diversi
fied. Extravagance might have some
Httlo to do with the quantity con
sumed, but not to cause abnormal
prices. Cold storage, men are not to
blame, for they actually save what
would otherwise bo lost. In many In
stances tho stored products are
placed on the market In sharp com
potltio'n with tho fresh article and
have a tendency to keep the price
down rather than to-enhance it. Tho
drudgeries and unpleasant things
men and women aro called to do on
a farm or In any other vocation, have
nothing to do In iixlng a price
There aro only two things neces
sary to do to bring about a nor
mal condition in prices, viz., increase
tho production and lower the tariff.
Nothing but a demand for an article
will raise tho price. When tnure Is
a world surplus of wheat, the price
goes down. When there Is a short-
ago in tho markets of the world, the
price goes up. Tho tariff surely af-
fects the price of every article upon
which it Is placed. The man, woman
or child who Is a consumer must pay
It with all the Incidentals added.
I havo no doubt but that many of
tho men who so strenuously kick
against tho present high price of tar
iffed wheat and flour, tariffed meats
of all kinds, to say nothing of 'he
eggs and canned goods and every
other article you find on your table
tomorrow for dinner, even to you
knives and forks and spoons, will at
tho very next opportunity stand up
and not only vote, but yell themselves
hoarse for the man who says ti
lavors protection with revenue in
If you want lower prices of food
stuff, vote the tariff down to a rev
enue basis with protection Incidental.
and you will seo better times.
