For Mortality Statistics
To Be Most Trustworthy and
Scientific Mortality Statistics
. Ever Compiled in Connection
With tJ- S. CensuA

Washington, D. C.~. Oct. IV ? U. S.
Census Direetor VDalji Durand,
day promulgated new rules and in
structions for the purpose of securing
more complete and accurate tran-'
scripts of deaths occurlng in the se
lected death registration States and
cltleB of the United States. These
transcripts are obtained every mpntli
by the Census Bureau from nearly all
of the city and State registrars .in -the
census?death registration area and
they form/ the basis of the mortality
statistics-prepared by thq Division of
Vital Statistics, under ChIM BUUsU
Clan, Dr. CresBy L. Wilbur.
This action is' expected to result In
the presentatiou_of the moat aciontl=.
flc and trustworthy mortality statis
tics ever compiled in connection with
a decennial U. 8. Census, which af
fords ?the? population, -bases? f or- the
1910 death rates. In addition to this
Important step toward more rellsble
data, the new revised version of the
classification of the causes of death,
as adopted at. the Paris conference
for the second decennial revision of
the International Classification, will
go into effect January 1st next in the
census registration area. Supple
menting thene wtli be the use of the
new United States standard death
certificates which It Is believed the
organised registration officials form
ing the_ vital statistic section of the
American Public Health Association
will* adopt for the report of deaths
commencing January 1st next, at the
Richmond, Va., meeting, October 19
21 next.
? In his communication to the State
JfcgJ"t,r%ra, Director ? Durtnd ? states.
Wat in their work of cooperation It
is of the greatest importance that
there should be exact agreement be
tween the number of death* as com
piled by the State-ofllcers and by the
Census Bureau, at least with respect
-to the total number Of de&tfta ffrporfr
ed for each month in each State,
county and cltjr. Difference* -occur
at present which are not creditable to
American statistics. For the purpose
of preventing such differences,
monthy shipment check list, showing)
the deaths by <,Twl
to each State registrar.
He aBks transcribers to follow ab
solutely the Instructions fof copying
and advises tests to ascertain correct
ness. Permanent transcribers are
preferred because of the skill ac
? <H?Trod?. I^oeai registrars should be
compelled to make returns on time.
Me effssUes v ?? sslsl
when the cenerkl office permits tardi
ness. The credit of the State service
must suffer, the director states, from
heedless and incompetent work, and
the compensation paid for the returns
Is sufficient to entitle the government
to thoroughly reliable transcripts,
promptlyjLranaoaltted^and containing
all of the statistical data required to
be registered under the State law.
To the .CttT registrars the director.!
suggests they note the instructions
to State registrars* He states that a
?ity registrar. .shoi?H? have in his
hands the certlllcater?f every death
th a occurs -j?dihraltfOiu.uj?L-.?*v-?
ceptlon, before any disposition is
m?de~bf thS'b'ody; hence there should
be no' occasion for certificates filed
many days after the close of each
month or year. The corrections
should be obtained before the burial
or removal permit Is Issued. No Im
perfect certificates or unsatisfactory
statements of cause ef death should
be afa.-uplnd. ? WfiSh overlooker, how
ever,. thsy may be oorrseted readily
by special blank or telephone, and
.city returns should therefore be su
perior in quality and completeness.
In conclusion- the director states
that the cordial cooperation of State
and city registration officials, the
value of the mortality statistics of
the United States will be greatly 1m
that every effort be mads to csrrM
out faithfully the recommendations
for the remainlngjnonths of the prea

Arrangements Are Being Made
for a Canvass of the City for
the Purpose of Procuring Ad

It should be a source o.f gratlflca
Hon to the entire community to
learrr that definite arrangements
li*ve been made for the presentation
here during this seaficn of some of
-ttreijost attractions now appearing ou
the Lyceum. circuits in the large cities
provided only that" a sufficient num
ber of season tickets shall be sold.
Realizing that these entertainments
are of a clean, wholesome and edu
cational character, the Board of Trus
tees of the Graded School have made
provision for the ube uf thu school
auditorium for this purpose. While
It Is not a money-making proposition,
yet whatever surplus, '?abovejthe cost
roF procuring Tire attractions, may be
obtained,- will be appropriated to the
uses of the school, in such manner. as
A number of sehson tickets have
already been subscribed and arrange

characterv^akhough the price of sea

The question of whether Washing

be dependent upon the sale of a suf

pay for the course; and it, therefore,;
is to be hoped that our citizens, who

I failure of th? First' National Ban.t
j here today. It being Reported that the
shortage, instead of $300,000 as at
first estimated, wilt run close jco
$400,000.
Vice President. Mill Aflen Is said
to have lost heavily In California and
Montana mining Investments. Worth
less notes poured Into ifffe bank today
and widows and orphans were hard
hit, a * Mr. Allen dieted as adminis
trator" of many estates. The value of
the securities whlcl? he has turned
over to the bank has not been ascer
tained,- but much .Western mining
stock in the collection is said to be
worthless* . <2*
Mr. Allen, for years a victim of
palsy, is seriously 111 at- hie home,
unable to see visitors. The city-' is
noticeably quiet in face of a calam
ity which affects a large proportion
of the community.
Mineral Point Is the third oldest
city In the State, and practically all
of its 3.000 Inhabitants are of Amer
ican birth. Thoy moct only casualty
in the shops, talking without trace of
exd'.tement or malice 6t the prospects
of recovering their deposit a, Renort
exaJLalklng with many persons-today,
did not hear a harsh word spoken of
the stricken vice president.
This bank was regarded as a finan
cial Gibraltar.* So firmly waa thin hp
llef held, that when reports of trou
ble began spreading a week ago,
there was no run on the bank. Even
when news of the shortage was
known to many -^teposl tors last- -Fri
day. only $ 1 6*,000 Vas withdrawn. It
is said that mor^thah this sum was
deposited from other sources.
The* manner in which the bank
was defrauded, it Is alleged, was by
the substitution of notes In the
-forged names ? of - well'-knuwu lui'tti
business men for negotiable securi
ties. The repeated Occurrence of J
these notes and a .certain uniformity
in their character^aroused the sus
picions of the banc examiner, and a
further probing into the books of the
concern determined his sudden action
in closing the bank.
