sent out to the various county
assessors blanks on which to list
the industrial products of the
state in connection with the cen
sus enumeration. In getting up
the form, the Secretary has fol
lowed the requirements of an
old law enacted in J SO I, the
last year of the civil war. For
mossbackism this form is en-
,'ll.l tn. first fACOn A and third
nn.m;...and in the rind for
sweepstakes no competitor need
enter. Neither Hops, Goats nor
Mohair is provided for nor
mentioned. The products of
Oregon forty years ago and
which, according to the blanks
furnished by the Secretary of
State, assessors must follow with
out any change whatever in mak
ing up the census report iu this
year of 1903, include wheat,
oats, barley and rye, corn, po
tatoes, apples, hay, tobacco,
wool, cheese and butter, horses,
niuies, cattle, sheep, hogs, gold
dust, barrels of salmon, baskets
of oysters, aud lumber, 2o
space is arranged for hops, one
of the leading industries of the
state, nor are assessors author
ized to make record of the num
ber of goats or inquire into the
number of pounds of mohair
sheared. Polk, the Blue Rib
bon county, will receive a very
black eye by such returns.
Marion, Linn, Lane, Bentcn,
Yamhill, Clackamas and Wash
ington will also suffer in the
estimation of any who may read
the census report being made
up on this antiquated form.
The absurdity of an enumeration
of the industrial products of the
state with hops omitted, is ap
parent to Fourth grade school
children of Oregon. Half a
million dollars worth of hops
were produced in this imme
diate vicinity the past season.
The output of the state was, ap
proximately, 18,000,000 pounds.
The maximum price received
was 32 cents; but computing at
SO cents, the hop yield repre
sented $5,400,000; at 27 cents.
$4,850,000. The production of
mohair is an important Oregon
industry entitled to recognition
v. Via census deoartment. It

county on whoss hillsides graze
Anfrora eoats of wond-wiae
fame. Polk is- the home ol
goats that captured prizes at St.
Louis against the competition
of the world, and yet this in
dustry is not considered worthy
of mention by the census de
partment. J. L. Hanna, deputy
assessor for this precinct, is
made to feel the awkwardness
of his position in making the
rounds as assessor and census
enumerator,, and finds it nec
essary to put in much of his
time explaining that under the
forms furnished and authority
given him, he cannot ask as to
the quantity of hops and mo
hair produced, nor goats .raised.
