Servants and children have, it is asser

often misleading information, csecinlly
in trying to answer the question relating
to ages and birthplaces. Il has been the
custom of enumerator, when met by n

The officials are unwilling to give any
information whatever ns to the results
obtained by the enumerators. It has
been said that one reason why the census
olhcials arc not willing to let the public
know their results is because the infor

only Incomplete, but in a multitude ol
eases grossly incorrect. It is therefore
considered utterly worthless even by
many of those who arc gathering It, and
if the results were announced from time
to time il would lie mi easy matter lor
the public to prove its incorrectness.
Il was feared from the first that the
number of questions anil the short time
in which the enumerators were given to
do their work would produce results ns
