OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY, BOSTON, Dec. 30, 1905.

To the Honorable Senate and the House of Representatives.

I have the honor to submit herewith, as required by law, the Sixty-Third Annual Registration Report, relating to the births, marriages and deaths occurring in Massachusetts and registered in the several cities and towns during the year ending Dec. 31, 1904, and containing, also, the reports relating to libels for divorce in the several counties, and the returns of deaths the causes and manner of which have been investigated by the medical examiners during the year 1904.

In tabulating returns of births and deaths still-births are not included. The only record of still-births appears in Table III.

The nosological arrangement of the tables of deaths in this report is what is known as the International Classification of Causes of Death, prepared under the supervision of William A. King, Chief Statistician for Vital Statistics, and adopted by the t'nited States Census Office for the compilation of mortality statistics, and the nomenclature is printed at the end of this report. This subject is further treated in the editorial obser

vations.

The rule adopted in the report of 1891, restricting the exhibition of tabular results to such as are plainly of practical utility within the meaning of the statute by authority of which the tables are prepared, is continued, and the editorial work has again been entrusted to Francis A. HARRIS, M.D.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

WM. M. OLIX,

Secretary of the Commonwealth.
