What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Whereas hy the act of congress approved July 2, 1909, the thir- teenth decennial census of the United States is to be taken, be- ginning on the fifteenth day of April. nineteen hundred and ten; and Whereas • correct enumeration of the population every ten years is required by the constitution of theUnitedStatea for the purpose of determining the representation of several states in the house of rep- resentatives; arid Whereas it iwof the stmoat im- portance to the interest of all the people of the United States that this census should be a complete and accurate report of the popu- lation and resources al the cc:mil try: Nowalierefore. I. Williemilow- ard Taft. President of the United States of Anieries, do hereby de- clare and make known that, under the act •fcireeesid. it is the duty every person to answer all ques- tions on the census schedules ap- plying to him and the family to which he belongs, and to the farm occupied by him or his family, and that any adult refusing to do so is subject to penalty. The sole purpose of the census is to secure general statistical in- formation regarding the popula- tion and resources of the country. and replies are required from indi- viduals only in order to permit the compilation of such general sta- tistics. The vensus has nothing to do with taxation, with army or jury service, with the compulsion of school attendance, with the regulation of immigration, or with the enforcement of any national. state, or local law or ordinance, nor erin any person be harmed in any way by furnishing the infer- inaton required. There need be no fear that any disclosure will be made regarding any individual person or his affairs. For the due protection of the rights and inter- est. of the pet -sons furnishing information every employee of the census bureau is prohibited, under heavy penalty, from disclosing any information which may thus osetne to his knowleige. I therefore earnestly urge wagon all pe. II to answer promptly. completele, and aceurately all in quiries addressed to him by the enumerators or other employees • of the census bureau, and thereby to contribute their share toward making this great and necessary pubic undertaking a sueces. In witness whereof, I have here- unto set my hand and caused seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington this fifteenth day of March, A. D. one thousand nine hundred and ten, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and thirty-folirth. Wet. H. TAFT. By the President: P. C. K vox, Secretary .of State. ARBITRAIION. Firemen Accept Mediation—Great Strike Averted. Chicago, March 15.—At the request of the general man- agers of the 47 railroads in- volved, Chairman Knapp of the interstate commerce commission and Commissioner of Labor Neill telegraphed an offer of mediation to the union officials. This offer was accepted, W, S. , Carter, presi- dent of the Broterhood -of Lorao- mot' ve Firms\ And pig ne stipulating, however, that. action - _ must begin at once. The appeal to Washinton was taken as an eleventhhour movement to prevent a walkout, which, it was declared, threatened the great- est railroad strike since that of 1894. Thirty-seven members of the western federated board of the brotherhood at midnight last night formally voted for a strike. The hour for striking had been *et for next Monday morning and the members were prepared to start for their homes to put the strike into effect when the tnediation steps IS/.taken. . tee It is stipulated diet the media- tors COMP to Chicago. According to Mr. Carter, their function will be, not to arbitrate the matters in dispute, hut to determine what rhall be arbitrated. The questiane involve wage., which both sides have agreed upon as arbitrnhle. The two other technical points, involving promotion and repre *emotion in the union, which the firotherhood contends are arbitra- ble, but which the railroads Ray are not. \If the mediation falls through, the strike will go right as plan- ned,\ said Mr. Carter. The acceptance of mediation was contained in the following telegram sent by the brotherhood to Messrs. Neil! and Knapp: \Matters in controversy involve hundreds of employes and increase of wages. Committee preparing to leave city, but if assurance is given that mediation will begin immediately, and in the,city of Chicago, authority for the men to leave the service of the companies will be temporarily withheld: The fact that we have proposed arbi- tration on all matters in con- troversy and the fact that the ninnagers' committee has rejected our proposition does not lead our men to expect it settlement from mediation, but as evidence of our fairness will accept your friendly offices under the conditions named herein. Please answer promptly. \W. S. CARTER.\ The conimittee sent the follow- ing letter to the general managers: W. C. Nixon, Chairman of the Managers' Committee -- 1 hes r Sir: Your letter of March lb has been reveived, in which you communi-- cate the information that the man- agers have invoked the aid of the Erelmen act and the honorable chairman of the interstate com- merce eommission and the honor- able United States commissioner of labor have been requested by the managers to tender their good offices. This is to advise the managers' committee that the chairman of the inte4taie com- merce commission and the commis- sioner of labor hare tendered by wire their friendly offices in an endeavor to settle troughs media- tion the pendinseentroversy. 'The proposition of our com- mittee that matters in controversy be . eubmIted to arbitration is evr ince of the regard that we have for the interests of the public, ansl after giving the matter further consideration, our committee in- etructs me to notify the managers that it has accepted the good offices of the chairman of lite interstate commerce ronintission and the commissioner of labor in in effort to arrive at an amicable adjust- ment of the matters in dispute, provided that such mediation shall be uonducted in tliv city ofChicago and without delay.

I To aid in this campaign of edu- cation missionary pamphlets are being widely distributed in till the protestant churches of western Montana. Letters are being sent out nerly every week to all the ministers in this section of Mon- tana. Reports are coining iii from varieua points indicating a good attendance from out of town. The committee is planning to make this the greatest timing in the church history of western Mon- tana. The sessions will all be held in the Auditorium, which seats one thousand five hundred. This will not nearly eccomodete those who will %tato to attend, when the true sigeiticance of the convention is realized.
