Just three ? weeks from yesterday,
May 21, the enumerators will start out
upon the tedious, painstaking and ex
tremely important task - of taking the
census for tfie year 1905 as prescribed
by statute, which provides that a state
census be taken every five years, al
ternating with te fen-year census of
the United States government. . All are
greed that it will be the most impor
tant eensua that has ever been takes
in the state, and "it is to be hoped."

"It is a very critical 1 period for
Marion county," said Mayor F. W. Wa

representative , yesterday afternoon,
' and everything depends ' upon the
results obtained , by this census wheth

tains her place as second 'in the staM
in point of population. There is no
question but that she will do it if the
census is carefully and properly taken,
and tbi whole responsibility rests upon
the county assessor and thd ' enumera
tors whom he' selects for the task. Let
us hoDe that he has chosen wisely.
There is no reason, for thinking that

"There i no question but that Mr.

realized Hie situation quite as fully as
I or any other citizen of old Marion,
and it is up to the enumerators "to
prove that the trust which, has been re
posed in them has not been misplaced,
and , that they will perform their du
ties to the very letter of the law. By
this I mean to say that they should
think the matter over seriously and
eome to the understanding not to al
low a single person-to escape bein
enumerated,' and that it is up to fbeia
to secure every -man, wonfan and child

One of the most serious problems
with which the - publie mind in now
wrestling is that of street improvement.

It must be remembered that the .'fed

eral census will bound to be shown up

in whieh it occurs. Tfie city of Omaha,
Neb., had some experience in this line
whieh it will not forget for a decade,
it is safe to say,' and will not cafe t?
go through "the ordeal again.'
"A good showing in the population
of Marion county, and especially the
eity of Salem, is moiiC essential in more
than one sense.. One most stop to think
of the great , contest: and competition
for supremacy that is going on Be tweed
tne different counties or the state in
point of rank as to population and that
there is much at stake. Up to the
present time Marion county is entitled
to second place in the rank of counties
in tne state in population, and to first

as the Taxpayers': league, woo nave i

tion to the eity council for laying maca
dam pavement upon, about twenty-four
street blocks in the heart of the eity.
While macadam is conceded tobe a
good and comparatively inexpensive
system or street improvement there is
some question in the minds of many
prominent and practical citizens as to
the ability of this class of pavement
to withstand the heavy traffic of the
city. There is perhaps no better prac
tical system than macadam known for
the building of country roads, where
me iramc is so intermittent ana not
so heavy as in the city, but in the city,
where loads of two tons and over are
being constantly hauled over , the
streets, there is a question as to wheth
er macadam will stand -the wear, and
tear and give satisfactory resulta. With
this doubt uppermost- in their minds

r Political Phase of Situation.
. "One of" the important things to be
taken into consideration and it is far
from being the least, although t is
only one among a hunderd, is the polit
ical phase of the situation. It must be
remembered that the legislative repre
sentation for the different districts rof
the state will be governed largely by
the result of the coming' census, and
Marion eounty should look well to her
laurels in this particular, as she is not
properly represented in ' the legislature
at the present time by any manner of
means. Everybody k'nows that 1 . the
population of this county has been
steadily on the increase 'for tne past
five years, a jrreat deal more than any
other previous like record, and it onlv
remains for the enumerators to get
them all in order to make a grand
showing. Politics, yon understand.

It is understood that the appoint

Salem wards has been TTelcgated to
Mayor' Waters, both, by . Assessor Bice
and the eounty eourt, and it is needless
to say that Ee will exereiss the greatest
of precaution and care .in fhs choice of
men to take the census, and he will
give the matter: his personal supervis

but the most wide awake and energetis

be decided upon, even if it does cost
a trine more at first cost, as it would

Some weeks ago there was an agita
tion on for the adoption of the new
process of paving known as the bitu
litbie process, which is a combination
of asphaltum with a concrete macadam
foundation and a patent top dressing.

the street a rough surface and the
horses a better foothold, with less lia
bility of slipping. The agitation, how
ever, has been allowed to die down of
late, but a prominent citizen and large
property owner v of tnis eity yesterday
revived the subject and called atten
tion to an item which appeared In a
Portland paper recently in regard to
the merits of this particular class of
pavement, as viewed by a l'ortland tax
payer who made an especial study and
investigation of the pavement, where
it has been in use for several years,
with a view of deciding upon the best
system for adoption for Portland. The
item alluded to follows:
L. J. Goldsmith, secretary of the
Taxpayers League, who left Portland
March 7 for a trip through the East
to investigate bituuthie pavements un
der all conditions of climate and loea
tion has returned firmly converted to
the beiiet that it is tne pest pavement

Paul, Boston, New York, Bedfod, Ash
ville. Washington and otbe cities where
bitulithic and other sorts of pavement
are in use.
"Boston is going to lay a great deal
of bitulithic pavemen," he said. "The
city engineer ,at Cambridge told me he
would have nothing else if he could get
bitulithic. At rtew Bedford, Mass.,
found the finest streets seen any where.
That is a great cotton factory town,
and and the streets have the heaviest
sort of wear, by transportation of great
bales of cotton and loads of manufac
tured goods.
" At St. Louis there are fifteen miles
of bitulithic pavement," he said. "The
fective portion of it is about naif.
