THE CENSUS TAKERS.
The census taker is at hand. Nearly ninety
thousand men and women have taken the oath of
office as enumerators and are going forth not on
ly to count but to question all residents of this big
country. They have sworn to canvass faithfully
the districts allotted to them and report truly the
answers to the prescribed questions. Not a few
of the questions may seem unnecessary and some
of them may even be regarded as annoyingly, but
they should be answered truly and fully, with re
liance on the oath of the enumerators to regard
all information given them as confidential. Pos
sibly more questions may be asked than are really
desirable, and a less voluminous census, requiring
fewer years for its compiliation, digestion and fi
nal publication, might be of greater practical val
ue. But decision in this matter does not rest with SR
the individual interviewed, and he should remem- |R
ber that the government's possesson of complete jp
and varied statistics may not only enrich history R
but contribute materially toward needed legisla
tion. Moreover, the searching enquiry is duly pro
vided for by act of Congress.
For a variety of reasons, therefore, it is wiser 1
to help than to hinder the census takers. The more :
cheerful and prompt the answers the quicker an
unavoidable business will be over. ObviouSly it !
