The United States Census Office will publish He turns at Frequent Intervals During the Ginning Season, and in Time to be of Immense Value to the Producers. Mr. Cornelius W. Troy, of Tupelo, has been appointed a local special agent of the Census Office to collect cotton-ginning statistics for this county, and we join the I Government in urging the ginners to give Mr. Troy their hearty sup port and cooperation, thus enabl ing him to make prompt and accurate returns. We would im press upon the ginners the fact that this agent is a swora officer of the Government, and that their reports, are forwarded as given to him directly to the Census Office, at Washington, without passing through the hands of any middlemen. The information giv en is held as strictly confidential, and the operations of individual ginners are not divulged. Upon the joint cooperation of the cotton growers, ginners. and local agents must depend the success of the am I ^ n 1 n (Inn • n/«n i V/VUUUtJ V/lilV/V A U IAA1U ry, and its ability to render this great service to the Southern people and to all interested in the cotton stsple. The Census Office has demon strated in three annual reports, the fact that the ginners are the only reliable source of informa tion as to the volume of the aunual cottou crop. This is very compli mentary to the giuners, who, no doubt, will feel a pride in sustain ing the reputation earned. In recognition of this interest shown by the ginner, and of a general demand for more frequent reports through this source, Con gress, in the act creating a perma nent Census Office, provided for .the collection and publication ol these statistics at intervals daring the ginning season. For the crop of 1902 the office will tissue three reports: the first two will covei the quantity of cotton ginned up to and including October 18 anc December 13, respectively; anc the final report will cover the total , quantity ginned from the growth of 1902. • Realizing that the collection o the data for these reports is mad at a season when the ginner’; time is greatly taxed, and appreci ating the necessity for prompt re turns, the Census Office has locat ed, in each county containing tei or more ginneries, an'agent, wh< will visit each ginnery in th county and secure a report of th quantity of cotton ginned up to certain dates. Iu undertaking the frequent aud hurried reports now sought, it is ot vital importance that the returns be made with abso lute uniformity, and that all be received at Washington at one time. This result could not be ex pected from individual requests made by mail of 30,000 ginners, at a time when they are engross ed in their ginning work. Fur thermore, the Census Office must be kept advised of all dhanges in the management and operation of these establishments, and secure returns from all new and revived plauts. To accomplish such re sults, it becomes necessary for the office to have local representa tives who shall be charged with the duty of keeping in close touch with the giuning industry in each county, aud of promptly report ing the quantity of cotton ginned. The statistics for the October report will be collected during the week beginning with Monday, October 20, and ginners should keep such records as will enable them to furnish promptly the re-1 puired information. These re turns will be tabulated, and the result published within one week from their receipt at Washington. Cotton statistics collected through the commercial system, however accurately complied, fall short of the demand of both pro ducer and manufacturer—first, in that as they cover the quantity of cotton marked between Septem lion 1 rtf A li rt iTrtil it fl iwl A nniiiit 91 of the following, they are not statistics of a crop growu in any one year; and second, in the liabili ty to error involved in statistics so complied. Nothing short of official reports, made sufficiently early to form a basis of prices, will entirely satisfy the cotton grower or manufacturer. It is gratifying to know that the South has the assistance and cooperation of the Government in briuging about the result they desire—au undertaking the success of which now depends upon the cotton growers and ginners themselves. --- • .■ Tax Payers Notice.
