No arrangement has yet been an nounced from Washington for the. ap pointment of census Inspectors and In terpreters. It is probable, however, that the appointments will be made a few days after the enumeration has started. In two days the count will be on. Many of the enumerators are already in the field making themselves famil iar with the district to which each has been assigned. Most of the men will be remunerated on a basis of three cents a name and they are en deavoring to plan their work so as to pay visits by day or night as will be most successful in finding: residents of their districts home. Within two weeks after Friday the count will be com pleted. It is believed that the population of the various scow towns, houseboats nd dwellers among: the wharves along the water, front will reach at least H000. All of them are employed as laborers in the various industries of the river. It Is proposed to round up nil the 127 enumerators and, headed by Supervisor Beach, one day and night will be devoted to an endeavor to lo cate every resident of the river abodes. Announcement of the date of this rally will be made later. Supervisor Beach yesterday re ceived further instructions from the Washington office as to the degree of secrecy to be balntained concerning: the returns made by the enumerators. No Information of any character may be revealed, and the banker or farmer who has bad occasion to conceal from the Assessor any Information as to his worldy accumulations may own up to the census man wltlfout fear. The matron of 45 who looks younger than her oldest daughter may tell the whole truth as to her age without a qualm, ft will be as safe with the enumerator as In the hands of her pastor or father confessor. A great aid to the enumeration will be afforded, says Supervisor Beach, If Hie 725 school teachers of Portland ex plain to their classes that the object rf the census Is to secure data for the Information of the Government as to the occupations and the financial orogress of each family. Teachers whose classes include children of for Mgn parentage may aid the count ma terially by asking: the youngsters to explain at home what the census Is all about. PERSONALMENTION. J. S.
