The fact is that the corps of workers engaged in the work did f-xceodirigly well to reach as many as sis thousand people Because they did not reach any more is mot any indication that the popula- tion. is not nine or ten thousand. Those who have boasted of the city's tftri thousand population have no qualms of conscience for so doing-. Calgary claims a population of twenty nine or thirty thousand and yet its religious census showed less than fourteen thousand. If ihe Lethbridge workers did no better than those of Calgary the census results would in- dicate that the city had a population of about twelve thousand. As to the value of the census in Calgary Dr. A. M. Scott, president of the Calgary Sunday School Associa- tion, made a statement that will ap- ply equally well to Lethbridge. He said: "Our census is a very poor indica- tion of the population of the whole city, but it will be very useful for the- purpose for which it was intend- ed. The reports will be sent to all the and .they will be able to, learn of hundreds of Calgarians of their particular denomination whom they never knew "before. "As a complete census, hsvTover, it could not help 'but be a failure. For for instance, "to go to a hotel or lodging- house and get a complete list of the inmates was an Im, possibility. Our of couflse. missed trm n.imes of thous- ands, but it could not be helped. The census not even show the exact number of persons of each" denomina- tion, but it shows enough to give a very close 'idea of the relative size of each church."
