Wilbur K. Newell, who is in oharse
of the Oregon horticultural exhibit at
the Lewis and Clark exposition, was
in Hood River Tuesday, endeavoring
to secure specimens of ripe apples for
the Oregon exhibit, which is being
put somewhat iu the shade at present
by the fruit from Washintgou and
other Northwestern states.
I he telephone was used, and efforts
made to get some apples, but it seems
that most of the farmers don't raise
summer apples, and Mr. Newell was
forced to return to Portland unre
warded. The Oregon display must
have some apples, and Mr. Newell is
anixous that as soon as Hood River
farmers can gather some good-looking
apples that they send the same direct
to Mr. Newell at the exposition. A
bill accompanying the fruit will be
promptly paid by the exposition management.

It wu In 1753 that a proposal to
count the people wu first made.
Thomas Potter, son ot the archbishop
of Canterbury and member for BL
Germans, Introduced In that yr a bill
"for taking and regis taring an annual
account of the total number ot the
people and of the total number of
marriages, births and deaths and also
of the total number of poor receiving
alms from every pariah and extra paro
chial place In Oreat Britain." It was
Inevitable, of course, that directly this
proposal was made the precedent of
King David should be quoted. And
many were the jeremiads as to the al
ternative evils which would befall the
country. Those submitted to David
were mild in comparison. Mr. Thorn
ton, member for York city, said:
"I did not believe that there was any
set of men or, Indeed, any Individual
of the human species so presumptuous
and so abandoned as to make the pro
posal we have just beard. I hold
this subject to be totally subversive of
the last remains of English liberty.
The new bill will direct the im
position of new taxes, and, indeed, the
addition of a very few words will make
It the most effectual engine of rapac
ity aud oppression that was ever used
against an injured people. More
over, an annual register of our people
will acquaint our enemies abroad with
Matthew Ridley, another opposing
member, added that his constituents
looked on the proposal as ominous
aud feared lest some public misfortune
or an epidemical distemper should fol
low the numbering." However, the
bill passed the commons, only to be
promptly rejected by the lords. Not
until 1800 was the proposal again
made, and on this occasion It was
brought to a successful issue. The
first census of England and Wales was
taken In March, I801.-Fortnightly Review.
