of native-born and foreign-born per?
sons, and other personal facts con?
cerning the latter class, In taking the
Thtrtteenth United States Census, be
glning April 16 next, Is fully set forth
In the printed Instructions prepared
by the United States Census Bureau
to guide them in filling out that all
the questions relate only to conditions
existing on April 15, the "Census
On the subject of place of birth of
a native-born person the Instructions
state that if the person was born in
the United States the enumerator Is
to give the State or Territory uiot
city or town) in which born. A per?
son born in what Is now West Virgin?
ia. North Dokota, South Dokota, or

Relative to conjugal condition, the
enumera, rs are to report whether]
the person Is single, married, widow- j
ed, or divorced. Married persons are
to be asked if they have been mar?
ried before. If the present marriage
la the first, the fact is to be Indicated
by the sign "M 1;" but if it is the sec?
ond or subsequent marriage, then
the enumerator Is to write "M 2"
meaning married more than once.
The question calling for the num?
ber of years of the present marriage
la declared by the Census Bureau to
apply only to persons reported as
married, and the answer should give
the number of years married to the
present husband or wife. Thus a
woman who may have been married
for 10 years to a former husband, but
has been marled only 3 years to her
present husband, should be returned
as married S years. The number of
years entered should be the number
of completed years. A person who
on April 15, the "Census Day," has
been married 3 years and 11 months
should be returned as married 3
years. For a person married less
than 1 year, the entry Is to be "0,"
meaning less than one year.
In the case of persons speaking
Polish or reporting that they were
born in Poland, which Is no longer
an Independent country, the enume?
rator la to Inquire whether the birth?

or Russian Poland, and he must write
the answer accordingly as Poland

If the birthplace reported Is Cana?
da, the enumerator la required to ask
whether the person Is of English or
French descent and write Canida
(Eng.), or Canada (Fr.), according
to the answer.
The question calling for the year of
Immigration to the United States ap?
plies to all foreign-born persons, male
and female, of whatever age. It
should be answered, therefore, for
every person whose birthplace was in
a foreign country. The enumerator
must enter the year in which the
person came to the United States. If
he has been in the United States more
than once, the year of his first ar?
rival is to be stated.
The inquiry whether naturalized or
alien appl'es only to foreign born
males 21 years of age and over. It
does not apply to females, to foreign
born minors, or to any male born in
the United States. If the person was
born abroad, but has become a full
citizen either by taking out second
or final papers of naturalization or
through the naturalization of his
parents while he was under the age
of 21 years, the enumerator is to
write "Na" (for naturalized). It he
has declared his Intention to become
an American pitlzen and taken out
his "first papers," the enumerator is
to write "Al" (for alien).
The inquiry as to the ability to
speak English applies to all persons
10 years of age or over. If English is
spoken, the enumerator must write
"English" In the prlper column. If
the person enumerated Is no\ able to

Sri tutors Hod Mode Up Their Minds
How They Would Vote and Did Not
Care to Hear Facta and Arguments.
The senate resolution from the Ju- i
diciary committee was killed in the
senate yesterday afternoon by a vote :
of 27 to 9 and the superintendent and
hoard of regents of the State Hospital
for the Insane will not be requested
to resign, as was proposed by this res?
olution Debate on the question, com?
menced Wednesday, was continued
yesterday, and yesterday afternoon the
question was settled. After the very
lengthy debate that has been indulged
in on the question. Senator Weston
moved to lay the resolution on the
table. This was withdrawn to permit
additional remarks and then the mo?
tion was put. On the motion to table
the resolution asking for the resigna?
tions of the officials the vote resulted:
Yeas?Appelt, Bass, Black, Carpen?
ter, Crosson, Earle, Forrest, Griffin,
Hamrick, Hardln, Harvey, Hough
Johnson, Johnstone, Laney, Lide, Mc
Cown, McKeithan, Montgomery,
Muckenfuas, Ralnsford. Rogers,
Splvey, Summers, Walker Weston and
Nays?Bates, Christensen, Clifton,
Graydon, Kelley, Sinkler, Townsend,
Walter, Williams. Two pairs were
announced, Senator Maulden voting
no, being paired with Senator Sulli?
van, voting aye; and Senator Stewart
voting aye, being paired with Sena?
tor Carlisle, voting no.
This disposed of the resolution and
the bill of the minority of the investi?
gating committee was called for dis?
cussion. , The amendment offered by
Senator Montgomery was first consid?
ered and is still before the senate as
the discussion of the amendment en?
tered into by Its author and suspend?
ed on the afternoon session, presum?
ably to be resumed at the night sess?
ion, was not reached in the rush of
debate on the income tax amendment
that was launched last night.
So the consideration of the amend?
ment to the bill authorizing the board
of regents to purchase land in the
country Is the pending question in
this legislation and when It is taken
up today Senator Montgomery, the
author of the amendment, will have
Senator Christensen, speaking in fa?
vor of the passage of the bill, told of
his observations as a member of the
committee appointed to investigate
conditions at the State Hospital for
the Insane. The Senator from Beaufort
advocated the passage of the resolut?
ion in an earnest manner, although
the chairs of many senators were va?
cant. They had decided how they
would vote and didn't care to hear
Senator Earle opposed the resolu?
tion and In a short argument defend?
ed Dr. Babcock, the board of regents
and the administration in charge of
the State's insane.
Senator Laney commenced his
speech opposing the resolution at the
morning session and concluded when
the senate met for the afternoon ses?
sion. The Senator from Chesterfield
spoke earnestly and vigorously In de?
fense of the .superintendent and board
of regents, and his remarks made an
Senator Lide spoke for a few
minutes after Senator Laney had con?
cluded. The Senator from Orange
burg signed the minority resolution
from the judiciary committee when
the resolution asking for the resig?
nation of the superintendent and
board of regents was passed by this
committee. Senator Llde read a tele
cram from the Orangeburg Medical
Society Indorsing Dr. Babcock.
Senator Clifton, one of the majority
of the judiciary Committee, said *hat
he wished to explain that the maj ity
of this committee did not have any
words of criticism for Dr. Babcock
and the members of the board of re?
gents, as to their character but did
wish to criticise their business and
Senator Weston then renewed his
motion to table the resolution and the
vote was taken.
The "mlnorly" bill providing for
authority for the board of regents to
buy 1,200 acres of land within 10
miles of Columbia, paying $25,000
therefor, was than called, and Sena?
tor Montgomery's amendment provl
dln| for 8,000 aores to be purchased
and for ths r? cents and a commission
of state offloera to borrow $500,000.
was the first part of the bill to bo
considered, in advocalng the adopt?
ion of his amendment the senator
from Marlon spoke at ths afternoon
session and was engaged in urging
his amendment when the senate ad?
journed ;it 7 o'clock until 8 o'clock
last evening, but other matters were
then taken up.

MASONRY IN HOIiY CITY,
Boston Corporation to Build Masonic
Temple in Jerusalem.
A corporation to be known as the
Jerusalem Temple Association has
been formed under Massachusetts
laws, having for its object the build?
ing and maintenance of a Masonic
temple in Jerusalem, to mark the
traditional birthplace of Masonry.
It is proposed to go beyond previous
efforts of a like nature and insure the
permanency of Masonry in Jerusalem
by the erection of a temple that will
stand for all timev
Its corporators include distinguish?
ed members of the craft, among them
Bishop J. W. Hamilton, D. D., U L.
O.; ex-Congressman L. D. Apsley,
Adjt. Gen. William H. Brigham, Wil?
liam E. Litchfield, of the Boston
Chamber of Commerce; Warren B.
Ellis, P. C. H. P., editor of the Crafts?
man; George E. Whitaker, publisher
of Zlon's Herald, and others promi?
nent In public and society life.
The president of the association, A.
B. Howe, has spent considerable time
in Jerusalem, and is thoroughly con?
versant with local conditions. He be?
lieves that there Is a sufficient num?
ber of English-speaking Masons In
the Holy City to warrant the re-estab?
lishment of a lodge there. Visiting
Masons occasionally hold meetings in
Solomon's quarry, but the place is not
suited to regular communications,
having no seating or other convenien?
ces, and a government charge of
twenty cents for admission is made.
If possible, the architecture will
conform to that of Solomon's temple,
exclusive of the golden adornment
and other decorative effects. To car?
ry out the plan, as outlined, would re?
quire at least $100,000, which It Is pro?
posed to raise by subscriptions of not
less than $10 from each of the blue
lodges throughout the United States,
and, In addition, to raise personal
funds from private sources. Should the
total amount subscribed exceed or
fall short of $100,000 the plans will
be elaborate or modified acordlngly.
The first contribution received
came from James B. McGregor, of
Newport, N. H., 108 years old, the
oldest living Free Mason. Governors,
bishops and men prominent in social
and religious life have promised their
hearty cooperation, and Mrs. Aaron
Morley Wiicox, widow of one of the
most prominent, members of Masonry,
during his life, has Interested herself
