The failure of tbe Public Trintcr to sup
ply the Census Bureau with the necessary
printed matter, such as application blanks
and card3 of admission, is causing delay in
commencing tbe examination of applicants
for positons in taKing the Twelfth Census.
These examinations were expected to bsgin
yesterday in the rooms prepared for that
purpose in the Maltby Building, but as the
delay rests with the printing ofUce. Di
rector ilerriam said he was unable to tell
when the first twenty-four applicants
would be examined. It Is very likely that
tho matter will now go over until next
The question of a permanent location for
the Census Bureau Is -one that Is receiving
considerable attention. It Is understood
that several local syndicates have beeu
formed for the purpose ot erecting a build

reau, with tbe purpose of leasing It to the
Government, and many plans with this end
