tho roform forces. After tho supreme
court upheld tho constitutionality of
war-tlmo prohibition and tho mea
sures to onforco it, Wnyno B.
Wheeler, general counsel of the
Anti-Saloon League of America, an
nounced that tho only question left
on which the wots could mako a fight
wob whether prohibition was a
proper subject for constitutional ac
tion and whethor the amendment
had been adopted legally. He con
tended there was no doubt on the
subject. New Jersey officials, who
searched state department records of
the ratification of the amendment,
announced they had found no varia
tions in language which would war
rant attacking it. ,
Enforcement of constitutional
prohibition was lodged iy Congress
with the bureau of internal revenue,
which for years has been in close
touch witl distilling and brewing
interests In the collection of excise
taxes and active in running down
"moonshiners.' ' Evidence collected
by the bureau will be used in prose

The work of census enumeration
Will be practically completed in this
city tonight, It' was reported today,
by Wll Lee, who Is in charge of
the assistance extended to enumera
tors by the Business Mens association
but la order to pick up stragglers;
who may hare been missed by, the
numerator" in the two week's cam"-
pafgfl, arrangements hare been made
by the Business- Men's association; to
accept Information . from, 'anyed
knowing 'they-tare-notvur-
ated qt the' office of the California
Oregon Power company or' the First
National Bsnkf ' '
As far as families are concerned It
ti believed. that the census Is practi
cally complete, but there are some
persons living alone .and away at
work during the day, roomers outside
of the reguldr hotels and rooming
housef, and floating laborers, who
have not been reached. The total of
these persons Is hard to estimate, but
doubtless It would make a consider
able difference in the census figures.
Any one knowing that he, or she,
has. not been enumerated may 'still
rectify the oversight by calling up
or seeing Leslie Rogers at the First
National Bank or the California-Ore-gan
Power cdrapany's office.
V. F, KayAi secretary of the Cen
tral Labor council, stated this morn
ing, that a canvass among foreign
laborers of the city reveals a large
number who have been missed In the
census. Kay stated that the member
ship lists of the unions contain the
names, of many of these persons and
salclJie would be glad to check them
over Tvlth 'theenumerators to ascer
tain those whollad missed the enum
erator. ,
A campaign, to raise funds among
the Italian cqpny for relief of San
Francisco families of, fisherman lost
in the storm outside the Golden Gate
heads recently', showed that many
Italians had not been reached by
tho enumerators, says Kay. Through
the Italian, committee in charge of
the relief subscription, propaganda
In" favor of the census was spread

but the fact' apparently remains that
ther.e are still gaps, and-large ones,

population. a
In the country districts the census
does not. close , until the end of tho
month, as enumerators are compelled
to tsecuijfe a mass of agricultural
