Accurate Compilation to Be
Made If the Present Plans
TAKE THE NAMES
There will be an accurate count of
the inhabitants of El Paso when Uncle
Sam takes the census in April. The
city of El Paso, the county of El Paso,
the chamber of commerce, the Central
Iabor bureau, the Mexican fraternal so
cieties and the patriotic citizens will
see to it that every person living with
in 'the corporate limits is counted In
the government census.
Mayor Joseph U. Sweeney has pledged
the city's support -to the movement for
having a correct census taken of the
pledge. As chairman of the special
census committee, Walter S. Clayton,
.director of the chamber of commerce,
is in charge of the campaign to have
the correct "population of the city given
in the government reports. The Central
Xabor bureau has been asked to co
operate with the city, county and com
merclal renresentatires. nnd th nrd-
Mexican KnrtnH win hJ
dents of the Mexican societies will be
asked to become members of the gen
eral committee having this work in
Volunteer enumerators are to be ap
pointed in each block on the north side
of the city to take the census of their
blocks and submit it to the committee,
for tlie use of the government enumera
tors as- a check on their lists. Inter
preters will be hired to accompany the
government census takers in the Mexi
can districts In order that an accurate
list of the residents of the south side
may be made. The fire maps, which
show every building in each block of
the city; the tax lists, poll books and
every other form of record will also
be used in preparing an accurate check
of the city for the use of the census
enumerators, aside from the lists pre
pared by them.
Accountants -will be hired to work in
the evenings in preparing these check-
j ing lists, and everything possible will
be aone to assist and facilitate the
work of the government employes who
will have the task of counting El Paso
Mexican Lodges to Help.
Invaluable assistance is expected
iruiu 1b memuer:
from the members of the Mexican I
lodges of the city. These orsraniza-

paign of education among the residents
of the Mexican districts to insure com
plete and accurate census reports be
ing prepared in these districts. They
will also be asked to -serve as volun
teer enumerators in their residence
blocks, the same as the residents of
the north side will be asked -to do. The
vital importance of having an accurate
, estimate has been explained by The
Herald to the citizens of El Paso, and
a further patriotic appeal will be made
by the city for assistance and coopera
tion in securing such a census report.
The enumerators will be asked to meet
-with the general committee, which will
have its headquarters at the chamber
of commerce, -and the importance of the
work will be discussed by the commit
tee and suggestions made by the enum
erators and the committeemen. "Vol
unteers will -be asked for to take the
census in each block of the city, and
the work -will be carefully watched
by a supervisor to be appointed by the
committee. An alternate will also be
named for each block to prevent any
delay fin having the volunteer census
report filed, shpuld the first appointee
be ill or out of the city.
The movement to gain an accurate
count of El Paso's Inhabitants has re
sulted in a wave of enthusiasm, which
means that El Paso will take her place
amdng the Jarge cities of the. country
which her size and importance demands.
An inaccurate census has injured the
city in the past, and it is with the
intention of avoiding any danger of an
incorrect-census report this year that
tlie campaign for a cprxect census for
El Paso has been started.

A HARD FIGHT
Philadelphia, Pa., March S. Although
,it is now three days since the general
strike order in sympathy with the street
car men went into effect, it is still Im
possible to accurately state the strength
of the movement.
Union leaders say 125,000 union work- j
ers are on a strike and that they have j
been joined by at least 20,000 men and
women heretofore unorganized. j
The police authorities on the other j
hand state that a careful canvass shows
less than 20.000 on a strike. But no '
matter what the figures, business, es-
peclally in the central part of the city,

American Federation of Labor, has as-
sured the union leaders that he will
have general organizers at once take up I

pathetic strike also threatens a new

by employers who have working agree

are being violated.
