It is a pretty severe condemnation of
Porter's census methods when Gen. Fran
cis A. "Walker, who really knows how to
make a census, testifies that enumerators
should not be appointed for party rea
. sons or upon the recommendation of dis
trict leaders, as they were last year, but
"should be elected for their fitness and

to do undoubtedly. As the Commercial
