tion of an order to sell ;t large block
of slock at the market caused a bad
break in Tobacco. This brought out
further sales by reaching stop loss or?
ders. Floor brokers in many cast B ad

to last and presently buying orders pre?
dominated over those to sell. These
purchases were largely Increased on the

THE NEXT CENSUS.
Some of the Great Figures It May Be
Expected to show.
(Boston Evening Transcript.)
The twelfth annual census of the Uni?
ted States will occur in IIHIO, and while,
no doubt the statistics gathered will
show a continued healthy growth. It Is
the opinion of experts that those who
I ik for sensations In the growth of
States and cities in all quarters of the
country (and who have seldom boon
disappointed since the census of 1S30,
when the settlement of the West was
ui der full sway) may nnd the growth
in the ten years ending in 1300 not com?
mensurate with that of former decades.
In the decade of the rebellion there
was the lirst and only decrease in our
Increases since the lirst census was
taken. This was caused in part by
tho Increased mortality because of the
war, but was probably more largely
due to a railing off In immigration. It
Is expected that there will be another
falling oft In the amount of the In?
creases In 1900, though the natural mo?
mentum "f the century's growth may
give us an increase equal to that of
The first census was taken In 1.90,
which developed a population of 3.929,
21!. In 1S90 the census showed an ag
gregnto population of 02.022.250. total
Increase In ooio hundred years of 58.
693,030. The aggregate Increase In each
ib endo was as follows:

Total increase .58.693,036
In 1790, when the first census was
taken, there were only seventeen States
in the Union, severally populated as
f .Hows: Virginia, 747.610; Pennsylva?
nia, 313.373; North Carolina, 398,761;
Massachusetts, 37S.7S7; New York.
310,120; Maryland, 319,728; South Caro
l n t, 249,073; Connecticut, 237,946; New
Jersey, 184,139; New Hampshire, 141,855;
Maine, 96.540; Vermont. 85,425; Georgia,
S2..Y1S; Kentucky, 73.677; Rhode Island,
6S R25; Delaware, 59,096; Tennessee, 35,1
In I8S0 tho percentage of people liv?
ing In America cities ..f 8.000 popula?
tion and upward was 22.57 Of the whole,
n little over one-fifth. The census of
ISi'O increased this percentage of urban
population to 29.20, nearly one-third of
the who).-. More than one-half the
totnl increase in population between
IS80 and 1SS0. viz.: 12.466.4G7. was in the
cities. This urban Increase was pre?
cisely 6.965.S3S. in isso there were 2S6
cities In the United states containing
8,000 people nnd upward, nnd their
nggrcgate population was 11,318,547. in
18(10 the number of these cities had In?
creased to 44S. having an aggregate
Population of 18,284,380 out of a total of
62 622,250. The proportion Of urban
population to the whole In all the South?
ern States is very small compared to
the North and West, being loss than
13 per i out- The growth of Southern
cities during lUf last decade was sub?
stantial, but not so marked as in other
It Is hard to convince lite American
that his country is not ahead of all the
world in everything, says Leslie J.
Pi rry, In the New York Sun, especially
In the expansion of its cities and towns,
it will be remembered that the Ger?
man census of 1890 disclosed some sen?
sational features in respect to the
growth of German cities. In the five
cars between 1885 and 1890 the capi?
tal of the German Empire. Berlin, had
in reascd In round numbers 260.000, to
1.574,485, showing it to be somewhat
larger than New York nt that date.
The great seaport, Hamburg, had
ju npod from 410,000 to 715,000. a clean
gain of 305,000 in five years. Leipsic
gained 183.000; Munich, 83.000; Breslau,
35.000; Cologne, 121,000; Mngdebury, 86.
000, and others In like ratio. The period
bei wen the two German enumerations
quoted is only live years, whereas the
American census period is ten years,
and lioncc the nail's set out are sur?
prising, I.ausc multiplied by two they
equal our most astonishing urban
growth. The English census returns
for 1890 show only moderate increases,
the greatest, in ten years, of course,
being that of London. 396.512. Liver?
pool actually decreased :ii.ooo. E^oth
the Greater New York and Chicago are
gr wing more rapidly than the metro?
polis of the world.
