The population of Chiekasha as it
1 ii shown by the census takjn by C.
I K. Wallin the directory man is SGG7.
A While the directory will give only
the names of persons over sixteen
.rears of axe Mr. Wallin took a com-jb-'
"Wte census taking the total number
v . f people in every house and he says
i .1.0 will make affidavit that the fig-
tires are correct. II is total is not
l aedupon any kind of estimate but
. itpon an actual enumeration.
t The census was taken during t'ne
months of October and November. By
''he. government census taken a few
tuonths before the population was 7
t N2 but this did not include the ad-
!itions which are included in Mr. Wal-
j Jin's figures. The federal census
h'twed a little over two hundred in
f 'these additions. If the enumeration
l. in both instances was correct Mr.
Tallin's total shows a verv substan-
; ttial increase in the few niont.is taut
lapsed between the first and f.econd
Mr. Wa'.iin employed very compe-
tent and skilled men in gathering his
s information and there is no reason to
y' "loiifit that his figures are substan
tially correct. The new directory
.vihieh will be out the latter part of
this week or the first part of next
will be tiie most complete volume of
K kind ever issued in Chiekasha.
