If the legislature will not remove the blemish from the record of its acts, for the sake of its own reputation, or of doing justice to those on whom the existing disability may press, let them wipe it out for the sake of accomplishing a great public good.

There is no country in Europe that has not among its public institutions one for the registration of the numbers of the population who are born, get married, or die annually, . . ."
