Washington, D. C, Feb. 17 The
United States Census Bureau is
making extraordinary preparations
to ascertain ibhe approximately ex
act number and value of live stock
on the ranges In the United States
on April 15 next, the date of the
live-stock Inventory, as required by
the act of Congress providing for
the thirteenth, census.
Fearful that for one reason or an
other thi live atock raisers may be
deterred from freely stating the
number and value of theto holdings,
the census bureau Is exerting un
usual efforts to assure the ranchmen
and farmers, especially of the
western range states, that their In
terests, nether personal or corpo
rate, can not possibly be affected
In any way by their frank and full
disclosure of their live-stock posses
sions. ' The information gathered by
the cenaus office Is held strictly,
confidenitial not only in respect to
the fact that under no circumstances
Is it ever imparted to any one not
connected with the census office, but
in respect to its ever being' given
to any other branch of the govern
ment. Assurance of Secrecy.
"In behalf cjf the census (bureau,"
today said Asoiaiant; Direetofl Wil
liam F. Willoughby, "I cam give as
positive assurance -af the confiden-
cerned only in the collection and
publication of statistical facts. The
spirit of every act of congress pro
viding llor the various decennial
censuses has been, and is, that
the information as to individuals,
firms, and corporations isi to be giv
en inviolable, secrecy. It ia as much
'privileged information' as that im
parted by a client to a la,wyer, by
a patient to a physician, by a dying
man to a minl:r. It can not even

Decision Against
0. R. & N. Railroad
Injunction In Right of Way Suit Da
cided In Favor of Hector
McDonald.
According to the La Grande
papers, Judge Knowles has rendered
a decision cif the Injunction,, suit tat
the case of the O. iR. & N. vs. Hec
tor McDonald, adverse to the com
pany and dissolving the Injunction
which restrained McDonald! from
tearing up the railroad! track where
it crosses his farm. Clerk W. C.
Boatman has not yet received any
notice 9t the decision.
Mr. McDona'd had a proviso in) his
deed of right of way to the railroad
company requiring that tho tracks
should be laid within two years trom
-he date of tho deed, otherwise the
deed should be void. Tho tracks
were not so laid, McDonald brought
suit to -entrain the company from
ayliu-; the tracks Just before the
tracklayers reached his land, the In
junction was issued and there t-he
matter has rested) until) this decision.
The case will be appealed to the su
preme court, the company's conten
tion being that it was prevented by
he panic and other causes over
which it had no control, from com
plying with the strict letter of the
deed.
