VOLUME XXIV. WHO ARE TO BE ENUMERATED. The OensuH Bureau’s Instruc tions to Enumeratorm on This Point. Washington, D. C.. Feb. 19. —The explicit and lengthy printed instruc tions to the census enumerators, which have been prepared by the united States Census bureau, give a clear idea of the character of the answers expected from the people of the United States with regard to the questions in the population sch edule to be carried in the decennial census April 15 next. All answers are to have reference solely to the “Census day,” which is April 15. Persons living on that day, but who died after It and be fore the enumerators call, are to be counted, but persons born after April 15 are not to be Included in the count. Persons who were sin gle on April 15 are to be reported as single, even though they have married subsequently and before the canvasser has called. This is true, similarly, of person who become wld owed or divorced after April 15. The census law provides that all persons shall be numerated at their “usual place of abode” on April. 15. This means the place where they may be said to live or belong or the place which is their home. As a rule, the usual place of abode is not the place where a person works or where he eats, but where he regularly sleeps. The enumera tors are cautioned, however, that. where a man happens to sleep at th time of the enumeration may not be the place where he regularly sleeps . There will be a number of per sons having their usual places of abode in enumeration districts who will be absent April 16. These are to be included and enumerated af ter the facts regarding them have been obtained from their families, relatives, acquaintances, or other persons able to give the informa tion. For instance, if a member of any family in an enumeration dis trict is temporarily away from home on a visit, or on business, or travel ing for pleasure, or attending school or college, or sick in a hos pital, such absent person is to be •numerated and included with other members of the family. But a son or daughter regularly living in an other locality ahould not be counted with the family at home. Servants, laborers, or other em ployes who live with the family, and sleep in the same house or on the premises, should be enumerated with the family. The census bureau states that there will be, on the other hand, a certain number of persons present and perhaps lodging and sleeping In districts at the time of the enumera tion who do not have their usual places of abode there. These are not to be enumerated. It must be assumed that they will be enumerat ed elsewhere. The canvassers an »,ild not, therefore, unless it is practically certain that they wfll not be enumerated anywhere else, enumerate or Include with the mem bers of a family they are enumerat ing any of the following classes. Persons visiting a family. Transient boarders or lodgers who have some other usual or per manent place of abode. Students or children living or boarding with a family in order to attend some school, college, or other educational Institution in the loca lity but not regarding the place as their home . Persons who take their meals with a family but lodge or sleep elsewhere . Servants, apprentices, or other persons employed by a family and working in the house or on the premises, but not sleeping there; or Any person who was formerly in a family, but who has since become a permanent inmate of an asylum, almshouse, home for the aged, re formatory, prison, or any other in stitution In which the Inmates may remain fpr long periods of time. DEMOCRAT HARMONY. Clippings from the Democratic State Papers. The democratic headquarters in the capitol are sending out ready made editorials to the democratic newspapers throughout the state and some of the boys are balking at publishing the slush. These re ports tell of the economy of the governor, but are conspicuously sil ent concerning the wanton extrava gance of the legislature. —Montrose Press. Little Ben Lindsey describes State Benator Billy Adams as “sunken lip ped, glint eyed, with the beak of a buzzard.” in his last contribution to ■▼•rybody’s in the "Beast and The Lamar Register juugie” series. Judge Lindsey , does not help his cause by personal abuse nor by ridiculing'men's per sonal appearance. Billy Adams may not ue altogether beautiful, but Liudsey, also, would scarcely take a prize at a beauty show. Billy Adaim is not ail we would have him, but he is loyal to friendship and is easily Benny’s superior in point ol intellect. —Boulder Camera. Tlie Hon. Chameleon S. Thomas, to be very accurate received more than SII,OOO out of the city treas ury to aid the city in its legal fight against the Denver Union Water cot pany. No sooner has he received it than he turned and began to help Mushrush and that band to loot the city treasury out of more money under the guise of doing something for the people. Chame leon, Oh Chameleon, how often would "we have gathered you un der our wing as a hen doth gather her chickens but ye would not." — Denver Democrat. Insurgency In The Democracy. Northern and Southern Democrats are as far apart on vital issues of Lhe day as Aldrich and Cummins of the Republican party. Indeed, it v ?uld be safe to say that there is x wider gulf between the opposing .actions of the Democracy. The attitude' of the Democratic branch on the tariff will illustrate the point. Instead of presenting its once solid front for free trade its leaders found themselves hopelessly split when the subject of revision was brought up. It became a local instead of a national issue. The vVashlngton Post has put the argu ment well in a recent editorial. The Democratic party is not solid it is not cohesive; it is not coher ent. it says: it has come to hold the tariff a local question, and most Southern Democrats are for protection for their local industries. When Morri son, Carlisle and Mills led the Demo cracy the South, except Louisiana, was for free raw materials, but a new evangel has been proclaimed in that section and the South is as clamorous for taxed raw materials as New England Is for taxed finish ed products. Texas and North Carolina demand larlft for revenue on raw mater ials. Kentucky and Missouri answ er. "As long as there is tariff for revenue on raw materials there will be tariff for protection on finished products.” Florida Ib as much of a protec tion state as Maine, and Virginia is as strong for protection in 1910 as she was when Henry A. Wise a-as a Whig advocate of that dogma mere is a strong protection senti ment in North Carolina. There are ten reasons for a tar iff duty on raw cotton for every jue that can be advanced for a duty on iron ore, and yet the South let cotton slide and kept iron ore on me dutiable list. And the next □me the tariff is tinkered with the South will be srong for a tariff on raw cotton, and that to the disgust of every Northern Democrat. In the light of such evidence no jne should stand in fear and tremb ling of a Democratic landslide for the next congress. An opposition must be united to achieve any de gree of success at the polls and the most cursory glance at the Demon, tic slate will show that Its rank* are hopelessly split. But were it able to present an united front it would come far short of turning the political tables. The tremendous m: Jority polled for Mr. Taft shows that the .country has Republican blood in its veins these days and it would be surprising Indeed if the Democracy could infuse its own doc trines (?) into the body politic. — Ex.
