This title of the Reyised SUtutei indaded sectioiui 2175-2206 thereoC, b
which were incorporated proTisione of acts for taldng preriooe oenaoMe,
principaUj Act May 28, 1850; c. 11« 9 Sut 428. It waa made appUcable
to any sobeequent cenans, onleaa otherwiie provided, by the fint aectioo ci
the Title, aa foilowa:

"Sec 2175. If no other law be passed providing for the taking of any
sabaeqnent censos of the United States, on or before the first day of January
of any year, when, by the Constitution of the United States, any fatnre
enumeration of the inhabitants thereof is required to be taken, snch census
shall, in all things, be taken and completed according to the provisions of
this Tide.-

The entire tiUe was superseded by Act March 8, 1879, c 195, 20 Stat 478,
entitled "An act to provide for taking the Tenth and subsequent censuses,"
which made similar provisions for the Tenth Census, and the last section of
which (section 24, 20 Stat. 481) repealed aU laws and parts of laws in-
consistent with the provisions of the act, and provided that "all censuses
subsequent to the Tenth Census shall be taken in accordance with the pro-
visions of this act, unless Congress shall hereafter otherwise provide.** But
that act was in like manner superseded by Act March 1, 1889, c 319, en-
titled "An act to provide for taking the Eleventh and subsequent censuses,"
25 sut 760, the last section of which (section 25, 25 Stat 767) ezpresdy
repealed Act March 8, 1879, c 196, and all laws and parts of laws ineoo-
sistent with its own provisions, and provided that "all censuses subsequsnt
to the Eleventh census shall be taken in accordance with the provisions of
this act, unless Congress shall hereafter otherwise provide." That act was
in turn superseded by Act March 8, 1899, c. 419, 80 SUt 1014, entiUed "An
act to provide for taking the Twelfth and subsequent censuses," the last
section of which (section 88, 80 SUt 1021) expressly repealed Act March 1,
1889, c 819, and all laws and parts of laws inconsistent with its own provi-
sions; but this latest act, unlike the previous acts mentioned, contained no
provision relating to subsequent censuses, and, by a proviso to section 2 tliere-
of, "nothing herein contained shall be construed to establish a Census Bnrsan
permanent beyond the Twelfth Census" (80 SUt 1014), and said act was
repealed by Act July 2, 1909, c 2, | 88, post, | 4419. A permanent Census
Office was esUblished by Act March 6, 1902, c 189, 82 Stat 51, and pro-
visions for taking the Thirteenth and subsequent decennial censuses wars
made by Act July 2, 1909, c 2, 86 SUt 1.

This Title includes the provisions of said Act Blardi 6, 1902, c 189, and
