POINT PLEASANT REGISTER.
VOLUME 47. POINT PLEASANT. W. VA? WEDNESDAY. JUNE 1. 1910. NO. 47 BIG JOB TO COUNT THREE THOUSAND CLERKS TO HELP COM PILE CENSUS STATISTICS. Washington, May SI.?Like a vast warship, the census bureau here' has cleared its decks for action." In ad dition to the main building of the bureau, two others have been leased giving a total floor space of 150,000 square feet, which is enough to ac commodate the permanent census clerks and the temporary force of 3,000 employes whose services will be required during the coming sum mer only. The enumerator's schedules have begun to arrive, but it will be several weeks before official announcement is made of the total population of any city in the country. The population of the cities will be the first tabulat ed, after which the states and minor civil divisions will be completed. C. Danna Durant, dir--tor <f the bureau, announced today that "no preliminary official statement will be issued by the burena urtil the "es tablished count" for each of the dif ferent areas has been made. ' 'The' e will be nit rough counts" or api rox imations," he added, "and no sacrifice of accuracy for haste." Work will be carried on night as well as by day. The punching machine, semiautomatic and electri-1 cal, 300 in number, will operate night and day. Each machine can complete 3,000 otids in a 7 hours day, which means that all the machines at this rate can dispose of 45,000,000 cards in a month. In working fourteen hours a day. Semi automatic electrical tabulating ma chines also will be used. Legrand Powers, chief statistician of the census division of agriculture does not expect to publish any in formatihn regarding the farm census of 1909 until September 15, when he may issue the first preliminary bulle tin giving for each state and territory the totals derived from the tabula tion separately of general farm data, the principal crops and the livestock on farm and ranges. William M. Steuart, chief statisti cian of the census division of manu facturers, has received about 150,000 of the 340,000 schedules involved in the census of manufacturers, mines and quarries. It is likely that an announcement of the totals for the District of Columbbia will be made sometime in June. Publication will ! be made of the complete returns for other areas as fast as they are re-1 ceived and tabulated. Procrastina tion in furnishing information on the' part of the few manufacturers in some of the areas, will occasion de lays, it is announced, which the cen 'tf sus bureau cannot moid. JACKSON STATUE Charleston, W. Va., May 31.?In a few days ground will be broken in the Capitol lawn for the foundation of the pedestal upon which will rest the statue of General Stonewall Jackson, which will be erected by the Daughters of the Confederacy. Already the big bronze statue of General Jackson, which is nine feet in height, has been shipped from Italy, where it was cast. The monument w ill be built on the sight front of the lawn in Oxpitol sqnarc and the base w ill be construct ed of I talian marble. L" pon a shaft will be placed the statue of the con federate general whose home was in West Virginia and whose fame as a military man Is known and his abil ity recognized the vorld over. MEMORIAL DAY OBSERVED. Appropriate exercises were held Decoration Day, at Tu-Endie-Wie Park under the auspices of the "Daughters of the American Revo lution." Mayor J. L. Whitten de livered a very touching address, after which the graves were decorated with flowers and flags. Owing to the in clement weather only a small crowd was in attendance. HUGHES HAS ENOUGH DELEGATES NOW TO IN SURE HIS NOMINATION. Unofficial returns received by the Herald-Dispatch last night from; conventions held, Saturday in Logan. Boone and Putnam counties to select; delegates to the nominating conven tion of the Fifth Congressional dis trict indicate that Lilly made his first showing of the campaign vestei day and shared honors with Con gressman James A. Hughes in the spoils of victor}'?but at the same time Hughes got enough delegates to assure his nomination at the con vention at Welch on June 2S. If Hughes gets the solid delegation from Mingo county as it is ac knowledged he will do, his nomina tion is assured without any delegates' from Mason, Mercer, Wyoming or Lincoln, which are yet to select their deleg: tes. In Putnam county, Hughes got twelve delegates in?tructcd for him, j while Lilh* received nine. In this county, the vote was divided geo graphically, Hughes taking all the; delegates from the districts on the j north side of the Kanawha, while' Lilly received all from the districts on the south side of the Kanawha. A rump convention was held in Buffalo district, but the regular fac tion of the partv was for Hughes and he will no doubt receive the three delegates from that district.?Hunt ington Herald-Dispatch. ALMA KELLNER'S BODY FOUND. Louisville, Ky., May SO.? With the finding today of her mutilated ! and deeomjxjsed Inxly in an old cis tern under onr of parish houses of St. John's Catholic church, Clay and Walnut streets, part of the mrsterv surrounding the disappearance of Alma Kellner, the eight-year-old daughter of Fred L.

If the boys win today and Charleston loses we will have the coveted position. The local team left Monday morn ing for Huntington, after taking two out of the three games scheduled with Charleston. Thev won from Huntington Monday, but did not get to play yesterday on aec< u:it of rain. We now have four games with Cat lettsburg on their grounds, return ing here Sunday and Monday for two games with the same team. After Catlettsburg games the Montgomery team comes here for a series of three games, starting next Monday. An effort is being made to have the steamer Greenwood run an ex cursion every Sunday out of the Pomeroy Bend in order that the fans from that vicinity may have a chance of seeing the games. Red Henry will probably be back in the game within the next week or so, and his friends from up the river, will of course, be anxious to see him play. Thursday's came. Score: R. H. E. Pt.

He spent a number of years in the drug business previous to studying medicine, and Is a graduate of a re putable medical college. He just recently returned from a post gradu ate course on diseases of women and the central nervous system. His of fices are located just across the hall from the Register.

The score standing at the end of the | tenth inning, S to 6. Batteries: for Pt. Pleasant, Dashner and Hunter; for Charleston, Stanley, Willis, Pick and Connallv. A large crowd witnessed the game Sunday against Huntington on the local grounds, when the mighty "Blue Sox's" received the worst drubbing they have had this season. Dike Dashner pitched a good game, and had fine support behind him. Pickle slammed the ball over the fence f>r a tu rner, and Leo Witter, got a three bagger and a two bagger all in the first three innings; this I put a crimp in the Huntingtonians from u I i ll they never recovered, i Hunter and Brown also came in for a two bagger each. If Huntington ! expects to make a showing agiiinst; "Indians" they will have to get; better material in the box, than j Seamon. Monday's gamk. Score: R. H. E. J Pt.

A number of red blooded tans from Point Pleasant were down to; take in the game, and they become very happy w hen their team secured the lead over the locals.

Huntington is now the Under dog j in the Virginia Valley league's in- I teresting and close ]>ennaiit race, and unless some of the old heads, who ! are far past their usual davs, are cli- I minated from the team they are j hopelessly lost. Parkersburg came to Leauge park and drubbed them with the greatest ease, then the tail j end Mountebanks pushed them into \ the celler and Sunday by the fastest ; of them all, the "Pointers,"' simply j made monkeys of them, defeating: the once mighty Blue Sox by hand ing them a 11 to 5 sleep producer. There are, of course, a few players on the team that are highly com mendable and deserve credit for what they have doue. Manager Cv Young is expected to infuse some young blood into the team at once.

York Evening l'ost to night publish ed the following: "That Judson Harmon, Governor of Ohio, would be nominated for President in 1912 bv the Democrats, i and would be elected, was a prophecy made today by Melville E. Ingalls, ' Chairman of the Big Four Railroad system, and the Democrat most prom ' inentlv mentioned to succeed Senator : Dick, of Ohio in case that state should , go Democratic next fall. "The situation in Ohio" lie said ; today, is really very simple. There will be a state convention next month but it will be p radially un unanimous. "Harmon has made a splendid Governor, and he has the confidence of the people. He has more friends today than when he took office, and even the Republic* is admire him. Then, of c urs-*, tli ? He; ubli.-ars arc hopelessly disru: tel. and are still looking for a candi late. I hardly thi ik that a very great j effort will be made to elect the . Republican candidate. "Would that mean that Ohio will be unanimous for him tor President in 1912?" was asked. "Decidedly. And I think that lie | wll be nominated and elected. 1 In country wants a man like Harmon, a man who is calm and safe, i?nd who will give our tired nerves a rest." "1 know many Republicans active members of the party for 40 years who are saying that their party ought to he defeated, just as a lesson." "They think that it needs a spank ing, and when that fcelingis rampant there is every ground for the belie) that the party is disintegrating." OIL AND GAS.
