That Portland haa a much larger fcop4

la lrv common, talk' smdnr' tha tostal
employes that the Portland carriers' In

larger number of people than is the case
in any other city In the United States,
It- la belnar arrued - therefore, that such
a censua would serve the two-fold pur
pose of more correctly ascertaining' the
population of 'Portland snd at the same
time showing that the Portland carrier
