Taking the Census.
Seventy thousand ennmorators will
begin counting the people of the United
Btates next Friday morning. A fort
night later the population of all the
principal towns and cities ought to be
known nnd by September it i believed
that the tabulation of the whole count
will be completed. Until then the pop
ulation will be estimated at about 90,-
000,000. The enumerators will have
to visit every place of residence and ask
many questions. Those who refuse or
who give incorrect information subject
Ihenicelves to a fine of $100. The enu
merators ought to have the hearty co-operation
of all citizens and are entitled to
courteous treatment. The information
given them will bo guarded as confiden
tial. It will not be published, only gen
eral results being of interest to the gov
ernment. To publish the tables of pop
ulation and of the agricultural, mining
nnd industrial resources and activities
of the nation will require more than a
dozen thick, volumes so that it is evident
that there will be no room for the print
ing of facta about any individual or
company, however vast may be their
operations. It is in the interest of every
city and county to help the enumera
tors to get the facts wanted by the cen
sus director. Without the willing'as
aistanee of the public people will be
missed and an unfavorable census show
ing will result. It is equally important
that no cattle, sheep, hogs, horses,
mules or other farm property shall be
left uncounted. Upon the number of
these things that are shown by a county
or State will depend the rating of that
community as a progressive or a back
ward place and people who may be
thinking of removing to engage in bus
iness elsewhere will be guided by the
facts shown bv the census. In no case
are the answers made to census ehumer
ators ever communicated to tax asses
sors. One cannot repeat too often that
thoy are entirely confidential and the
enumerators are sworn to guard the in
formation they receive tor the census
supervisors and tabulators alone.
Eminent Authorities Say
that out-door exercise is needed by the
American people. That's all very well,
but how can people with rheumatism
follow that advice? The answer is very
simple use Ballard's Snow Liniment
and the rheumatism will go, leaving
you as spry as a colt. Gives quick and
permanent relief from rheumatism, neu

" Income Tax Amendment.
The Maryland Legislature has ratified
the income tax amendment to theJFcd-
eral Constitution. Seven of the States
h we now ratified the amendment, if
Kentucky be included in the number.
It will be remembered that the Ken
tucky Legislature adopted two ratifica
tion resolutions which 3ov. Wilson
thought defective in form, and that a
third resolution was pending when the
body adjourned sine die. It has been
stated, however, that the Governor will
send one of the resolutions that were
passed to the Secretary of State at Wash
ington who will decide whether it is
technically regular. The proposed
amendment has been rejected by only
one State, Virginia, but it has failed of
ratification in Georgia and Connecticut
on account of postponement of action
by one branch of the Legislature. The
Legislature of four States are now in
session, Massachusetts, New York, New
Jersey and Rhode Island, but none of
these bodies has yet acted on the amend
ment. Nashville Banner. '
To Speaker Cannon.
Washington, April 12. Speaker Can
non's declaration to the House "insur
gents during Ins speech yesterday
brought some positive statements from
the insurgent leaders to-day.
"The Speaker can continue to make
these irritating defies," said Representa
tive Victor Murdock (Kansas) "until
after the administration legislation is
disposed of. After we have passed the
important legislation in hand, his case
will be attended to. A man can't con
inue to make large bluffs without event
ually being called. "
Representative Foindexter, of Wash
ington, remarked: "Cannon's action
is foolish. He is sitting on a powder
mill. He'll touch this thing off some
day and he will find himself going up
through the domo of the Capitol."
Would Bring About Merger.
Cincinnati, O., April 12. Eighteen
delegates of Methodist Churches, six
bishops, six ministers and six laymen,
meet here to-day at the book concern
to arrange a plan whereby a federation
that will include more than five million
Methodists can be formed. It will be
the aim of the delegates to bring about
the often tried plan of organizing a Gen
eral Conference of the Northern and
Southern Methodists. Tha delegates
will hold separate sessions to-day pre
liminary to joint sessions to bring about
the merger later in the week.
The Southern Bishops here for Confer
ence are Bishop E. E. Hoss of Nash
ville, Bishop James Atkins of Waynes
ville, N. C, Bishop A. W. Wilson of
Baltimore, and Bishop Earl Cranston of
Washington, D. C.
Halley's Comet Now Visible.
It is no longer necessary to resort to
the use of the glass if a good view of
Halley's comet is to be witnessed. This
may be had at a short hour before sun
rise. Tho comet is distinctly bright
It shines just about an hour before
dawn. There is no mistaking it. It
can be found in the Eastern sky, just
above the point where the sun is yetun
seen and just where the sun will later
shine. A week ago a glass was neees
sary, but now this is not required. It
has been seen from the weather bureau
and from the big trust buildings in the
city. Those who live in the country
lave a greater advantage still, for the
sky is never cloudy and the fog, which
so often settles about tho city, is miss
ing. So far the tail is just beginning to
be developed, but the brightness of the
body of the star gives it an almost un
natural appearance. It will furnish a
good excuso to sit up at nights, and
will no doubt be used as such during
the days to come. Memphis Commer
