If a man comes to the door this morning" and wants to know how old you are, do not slam the aforesaid door in his face as it is very likely that he is the enumerator, as there are tens of thousands of them start ing out this morning in an endeavor !to count the people of the UnUod Stsites. The undertaking is a great one and thc enumerators should have the as sistance of the people. The men who are taking the census are not. »o be very well paid as govenrment jobs go, so assist them in every way pos sible way, that they may finish their work in the shortest possible time and with the greatest correctness. The president of the United States has issued the following proclamation regarding the census: "Whereas, by an act of congress, approved July 2, 1909. the thirteenth decennial census of the United States is to be taken, beginning on the 15th day of April, 1910 and Whereas, a correct enumeration of the population every ten years is re quired by the constitution of the United States for the purpose of de termining the representation of the several states in the house of repre sentatives and Whereas, it is of the utmost im portance to the interests of the people of the United States that this census should be a complete and accurate report of the population and resour ces of the country Now, therefore. I, William Howard Taft. president of the United States of America, do hereby declare and make known that, under the act afore said, it is the duty of every person to answer all questions lf the census BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE, FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL 15, 1910. gone to attend a banquet given by the Jefferson club. The Webster high school, which is located at Webster, a station on the line of the farmers' railroad, was raised from a third to a second grade. The Webster school is the only rural high school in the state. Webster itself is only a little wheat town, and has a population of less than 50 peo ple, but the pupils from the school are gathered from the surroundnig country and the district furnished a team and wagon in which the child ren are taken to the school and then returned to their homes. The schools at Cogswell which have not been classified heretofore, were placed in the third grade high school class. The state aid for high schools was reduced 10 per cent per school on ac count of the large number of schools to be taken care of. Following is a table showing how the state aid mon ey is to be spent for the school year 1909-10. 38 first class at $720. 17 second class at $450. 30 third class at |270. This gives $27,360 to the first class schools, $7,650 to the second class schools, and $8,100 to the third class schools, making a total of $43,110 to be used as state aid to the high schools of North Dakota. There was considerable discussion as to raising the standard of instruc tion, and it was agreed that the high school board should furnish a syllibi the various subjects with the idea of improving the various methods of instruction. It was also decided to emphasize to the teachers of the high schools the necessity of giving .a thor ough review of the common school subject before the pupils left the high schools. President McVey left on a later af ternoon train for Hebron, where he delivered a lecture, and Inspector Haywood went to Glen Ullin where he is to inspect the work of the high school today. The next meeting of the board will be held the latter part of next month. COUNTING OF NOSES STARTSJHIS A. M. ARMY OF CEN8US TAKERS WILL START OUT THIS MORNING IN U. S. Give the Enumerators All the Infor mation They Ask for Make the Census Complete. schedules applying to him and the]to the landscape, it would hardly family to which he belongs, and that seem necessary to urge tree planting. However, one who rides over the prairies of North Dakota seldom sees a tree growing about a rural school. any adult refusing to do so is subject to penalty. The, sole purpose of. the census is to secure general statistical infor mation regarding the population and resources of the country, and replies are required from individuals only in order to permit the compilation of such general statistics. The census has nothing to do with taxation, with army or jury service,.with the com pulsion of school attendance, with the regulation of immigration or with the enforcement of any nation, state or local law or ordinance, nor can any person be harmed in any way by fur nishing the information desired. There need be no fear that any dis closure will be made regarding any individual or his affairs. For the due protection of the rights ynd interests of the persons furnishing information every employe of the census bureau is prohibited, under heavy penalty from disclosing any information which may thus come to his know ledge. I therefore earnestly urge upon all persons to answer promptly, com pletely and) accurately all inquiries addressed to them by the enumerat ors or other employes .of the census bureau, and thereby to contribute their share towards making this great and necessary undertaking a suc cess." Bismarck is in the tfiass of cities where the enumerators are only al lowed 15 days in which to turn in their reports, and it will be seen that they will have to work with consider able rapidity in order to finish their work in time. The population of the state will probably be known about sixty days after the completion of the enumera tion. Last census the population was about 457,000, and there will be con siderable speculation as to what the increase has been in the past ten years. WATER SHUT OFF. It was announced yesterday that the water supply would be shut off between 10 a. m, and 2 p. m., to ad mit of hydrant removal. Rain prevent ed it. An attempt will be made today (Friday), .between the same hours, weather permitting. BISMARCK WATER SUPPLY CO. SPELLING CHAMPS TO MEET HERE APRIL19 EXPECTED THAT EVERY COUNTY IN THE STATE WILL BE REP RESENTED. Meeting of the County Superintend ents to be Held April 19 and 20— 100 Visitors Expected. The long advertised and much her alded state spelling contest will be held in Bismarck on the evening of April 19 in the house.rooms of the state capitol. It is expected that practically every county will have a representative here at that time. There will undoubtedly be a good attendance from the city as everyone in the city is interested in the outcome of the event. There will be a meeting of the coun ty superintendents of the state in Bismarck on April 19 and 20, and many of the superintendents expect to be chaperons for the contestants from their county. TELLS EDUCATORS TO OBSERVE DAY County Superintenlent E. L. Vig nes's this morning sent out to teach ers and members of school boards in Burleigh county, the following let ter from the state superintendent of public instruction: To superintendents, teachers and school officers: His Excellency, Governor John Burke, has fixed Friday, April 22, as Arbor day. After all the discussion of the past few years relative to the economic value ftrees to say noth ing about the beauty which they give This ousrht not to be. Farm homes are sheltered, many times hidden from view by groves. Why not the school home of your children? The laws of the state, chapter 201, session laws 1909, make it the duty of every district school board to plant trees and shrubs. Not only are trees to be planted but school grounds are to be fenced. I most earnestly urge upon school boards not only obed ience to the law but also the wisdom of making school grounds attractive. Nothing has greater influence upon school attendance and interest than pleasant surroundings. Now its the time to begin. We have not issued a special day programme this year. Last year we issued a rather elaborate programme and trust that it may be of use again this year. I want to suggest to the teachers that an Arbor day program is an excellent thing but an Arbor day exercise is better. Let this exer cise consist of thoroughly cleaning up the school yard, making a flower bed or two, planting some climbing vines over the window, making a screen in front of the buildings or arranging a school garden. Let this pupils. Trees must have forest ad ditions to thrive and effort is wast ed when an isolated tree or two is torn from its forest home and plant ed on the prairie. Trees will grow anywhere in this great state but they must be given an opportunity and right conditions.. I hope each officer, pupil, teacher and superintendent will feel that he has a part to play on this Arbor day. Yorrs very truly, W. L. Stockwell. 10 ADVISE KING London, April 14.—Amid scenes of intense excitement hardly paralled since the Gladstonian home rule de bates, the house of commons tonight by a majority of 103 recorded its approval of Premier Asquith's reso lutions dealing with the veto power of the House of Lords and heard the premier's declaration of policy for carrying them into statutory effect. Having formally introduced amid loud cheers, his bill embodying the resolutions, Mr. Asquith said the governments etfective existence de pended the passing of the resolutions into law. If the house of lords failed to ac cept or declined to consider their policy the government would feel their duty to advise the crown as to hat steps were necessary to in sure their policy receiving statutory effect. It would not be right, he said, for him to disclose the terms of thatadvice bit unless he govern ment found themselves in a position to give their policy statutory effect they would either resign or recom mend dissolution of parliament. The premier's statement was inter rupted by cheers. There was much laughter from the conservative benches when he said he would not disclose the terms of his intended advice to the king.

Tree planting to be effective, means that the ground must be thor oughly subdued and'trees panted in masses. This work belongs to the school board, not the teachers and Maud Dwyer and Harry Frank, two McKenzie county homesteaders, arrested on a charge of having stol en Julia Delaney's shack, valued at $20, were discharged. FIVfc GEM The head liner act for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, is Herbert and Germaine, in an aerial casting and rebounding act, the like of which was never before seen in the city. Howard Martin made a hit with his eccentric singing and dancing, and Roe Reeves does about the classiest stnging and character work ever seen here. His Italian peanut vendor im personation and song was a big hit. The Fitzsimmons-Lang tight pic tures were pronounced the best ever shown and were probably responsi ble for the big business on a bad weather night, but the isf-iss of the show will be sufficient to draw the business for the balance of the week. The fight pictures will be shown again tonight at the second perfor mance only. MORTON CO. SUNDAY SCH00U0NVENTI0N WORKERS ARE IN SESSION AT MANDAN FOR TWO DAYS THIS WEEK.

There was a good crowd out and the reading was enthusiastically received. His childhood anr humorous poems made an especially big hit an:l (he applause was generous. This is the tf'-st time Mr. Foley has given public readings of his poems. NEGRO OEFEATED WHITE FIGHTER I.os Angeles, Cal.. April 14.—In a battle which demonstrated again the ability of Sam Langford of Boston as a human fighting machine, and added to the reputation of Jim Barry of Chicago only a tribute to gameness and ability to withstand punishment, the "Boston Demon" sent his vvhiie antagonist to the mat for the final count in the sixteecnth round at the Vernon arena today. It was a vicious go from start to finish, with the negro well in the lead after the fi^st six rounds. From the tenth, in which Barry twice went- to the mat for the count of nine, until the sixteenth, when a straight left to the chin ended the combat, it. was wholly one sided. Langford landed, on his m«m almost at will and victory by the knockout route I'.ppeared only a matter of time. Barry surprised the ringside crowd with the strength he displayed despite the terrific bombardment, and a ral ly in the fifteenth inspired his backers with the hope that he would yet out last Langford. While the men did not weigh in before the fight it was said a difference of thirty pounds in weight favored the white fighter. Barry's weight was given as 196 and that of Langford at 166.
