The 30ii or more Census Office clerks

of the wort mapped out for that branch of
the Government service may reassure
themselves nsjthercls no danger of fur

mils reassuring statement is made by
Director Merriam himself In his last re
port just made public Referring to tlie
work of the census -the Director adds
with some emphasis that his department
lias experienceel considerable delay be
cause of the absence of emplpj cs from
either illness orMnnual leave
Regarding the fojiging of a large num
ber of the small1 army of clerks about
which rnmurs hilvabeen increasing dur
ing the last secml months Director
Merriam states that it had been hoid by
the 1st of November a number cf tho
clerks now emiHOycti could bfe dropped
But he adds Inasmuch ad- the work
has been retarded owing to the difficulty
of maintaining the- clerical force -at Its
maximum It Is not- likely that there will
be any material reduction ttntii after the
first of the year -
Frauds tulckly 1uuishel
Touching upon tho large number of
agents nearly 55009 in all employitl In
JTelU work the Director says that it was
hardly to be expected out of the large
number of agents employed In such work
that thero would not be some one who
would prove Incompetent and unfaithful
to duty The Director of the Census then
gives a somewhat lengthy statement
showing the vario js prosecutions conduct
ed by his office during the past year upon
enumerators who violated the Census Act
in this connection considerable space Is
devoted to discussing the cases of Ste

More Scope -Wanted
In concluding his report Mr Merriam
asks that the scope of the work of the

ors power lie extended more than it is at

Nearly All Swedes Occupy Lnnl They
J Were Horn On
Tho population of Sweden In 1S0 by
actual countwas 50 B913 and the esti
mate forl0t5s5159000 nearly the same
as London tlie men number 2i666IS and
the women 25W2S0 which Is 1000 men to
1051 women whllcvthe ratio for all Europo
Is 1000 men tateM women Tho excess of
women in Sweden Is caused by the emi
gration of men
Sixty per cent of the population live by
agriculture 15 percent by manufacturing
and lumbering 10 per cent by commerce
and trsde S per cent by mining and the
remainder are 1 the professions and thn
army nnd navy and ensaged In different
By the last census there -were 333000
farms of which SJV0 were occupied and
tilled by tlie owners and 60000 were
leased This Is a larger percentage of
ownership I am told than ran be found
in any other country except Norway The
Swedish peasants have nlways been free
nnd Independent and have owned tho
land they till They have occupied it for
Sejno years at least and during all that
period have not assimilated with any of
their neighbors nor has their blood leen
diluted In- mixture with any other nation
ality so that except the Norwegians they
claim to be -of purer blood than other
There Is nothing in Sweden to attract
immigrants The increase In population
has been entirely natural The number of
foreigners In the country now is very
small only a few thousand Nlnety nlno
per cent of th Inhabitants were born In
Sweden and more than S3 per cent upon
the ground they occupy The present gen
eration in Sweden therefore are pure
Swe des
The peasants crn trace back their an
cestry into the Middle Ages as well as
the noDtlity iThe same families have
occupied tho sime farms for centuries
The soil has been cultivated for thousands
of years by tiro ancestors of tho who
cultivate it now Transfers of farm prop
erty are almost Unheard of and a farmer
was never known to move The titles
descend by Inheritance The families are
intermarried so that nearly the entire
population of certain districts are related
to one nnother
Tlie geographical sccliylon of the
Swedes separated from the rest of the
world by natural boundaries has had a
marked Influence upon the national char
acter Industry ingenuity honesty and
economy are lt j distinctive traits and
until recent years the ability fo supply
their own wants has been a peculiarity of
the Swedish people even when the rcanty
liarvests compelled the farmers to grind
up the hark of the birch tree and mix it
with their bread Recently however the
migration from the country to the manu
facturing centres has diminished the pro
ductive power of the agricultural popula
tion and has Increased the number of
mouths to be fed
Sweden with the exception of Norway
is the healthiest country in the world and
the mortality is lower than that of any
other Tlie two neighbors run a very
close race Sometimes Norway and some
times Sweden Is a fraction ahead and
taking tlie average for twenty years they
would be about equal During the last
ten years Sweden has been a little ahead
and the death rate for the entire King
dom has been 1143 per 1000 population
the lowest everTecorded for any nation
In certain partsof the United States and
Australia the rate is lower but not for
the entire nation During the same pe
riod the death rate In Norway was 163

There are more Jews than Catholics in
Sweden The last census shows over 3-
generally men of business There Is
nothing In Swtyeh to attract the poorer
classes of Jeivs from Russia Poland
Hungary and other countries from
which they emigrated In large aumbers to
the rolled States but the business op
portunities arc tempting to capitalists
nnd some of tluejulargest enterprises In
the Kingdom are now owned or manag
ed by Jews
Tlie Jews claim King Oscar as a friend
of their race which accounts for the
friendly interest he has fre quently shown
in their affairs Before his reign there
was an intense religious prejudice in Swe
den but his favor has gained them pres
tige and has been largely influential In
moderating the hostility of the clergy It
Js still a matter of dispute but Hebrew
authorities claim that Bernadotte Napo
leons Field Marshal who founded the
present dynusty of Sweden was of Jew
ish ancestry According to his biography
tlie father of Bernadotte was the mayor
of a- little village near Pau France and
his home Is pointed out to tourists Chi

Transportation- IVoiv tlie Second
Inrcril Industry In the Conn try
When we consider that there arc over
eleven billions of dollars Invested in
steam railways in this- country and that
transportation outside oft a gri em It lire is
the largest industry in this country it is
with aHtonlKhmcntthat somo persons will
rend that the first man who ran a loco
motive in this oi ntry Is just dead in
the poorhimscB -We are willing to admit
that there IB atgrent coruoversy as to
the actual engineer who performed this
service but tho tnan in question was cer
imniv ntip of theDloneers
I hose who haVe reached only threa
score and ten cannot icv uick io - emie
when there wis not a considerate de
velopment of railways in this country
So soou as tlwy were seen to he practical
there was u rush of capital to these enter
prises most of whirh were aided by the
nation States or municipaliWes In lhW
there were about lolCJ miles of railway
either built or under construction while
ttmoIi ronre was contemplated The long
est line was tlie Erie which was com
pleted the next year and was consid
ered a wonde r since it reached from the
port of New York to Lake Erie For
twenty years more railways were built
much as suburban trolley roads are now
and not until some yeeirs after the civil
war did the genius of Commodore an
derbllt exercise Itself In the amalgama
tion of short lines into trunk roads the
outurowth of which forms tho big sys
tems of today
The railway Is today the chief artery
of commerce We cannot suppose
to the old condition of nnniis when
the horse was the chief motive power and
tlie canal was a wonder Today it Is easier
and quicker to go to Chicago than It for
merly was to go to Harrisburg We buy
anything we want at a low price simply
because dHtance has been practically an
nihilated It Is of iJitcreit at this time to
remember that one life spans so large an
amount of scientific development Morally
we may not lie better than our fathers
though we trust and lclleve that wc are
but surelv In every oilier way we have
progressed to an extent that the wildest
dreams of the Imagination could not have
conceived when young grey haired men
