W. C. Gallowiv. supervisor of the
census for the Fourth district, which
embraces the counties of the Terjth
congressional district, met with the
enumerators of Rock Island yester
day afternoon at the Carse building.
The purpose of the meeting was to
look over the work of the enumera
tors and make corrections where
clerical errors were found in order
that the canvass be finished as early
as practical and with as few inaccura
cies as possible.
"The work of the enumerators in
Rock Island, as far as thev have pro
gressed, is just about perfect, as far
as the clerical part of it goes, at
least," said Mr. italloway, "lor you
understand it is yet too early to say
anything as to the thoroughness of
the canvass. We are here to get all
the names. That a our business.
None Will Escape.
"Rock Island has a bright and ap
parently earnest force of enumerators,
and I reckon their local pride and
faithfulness to the trust imposed in
them by the national government Is a
safe assurance that none will escape.
"Toe canvass in the city will be com
pleted, at the rate it is being carried
on, within three or four days. If
after the work is don here any citi
zen discovers a name has been over
looked he will do a kindness by noti
fying me at Aledo. and proper correc
tion will be made."
