CONTINUED GBOffTB OF CITIES.
The census bulletin, making com
parison between the urban and rural
populations of the United States in
1900. has been issued and it is grati
fying to note that while the percent
a'ge of city inhabitants continues to
increase, the rise is not so great for
the decade between 18'JO and 1900 as
it was in that which elapsed between
1880 and 1890. The 1900 census
showed that more than 23,000.000,
something more than 37 per cent of
the total population of the country,
were found in cities and towns rang
ing above 4.000 inhabitants. In 1890
there were but 809 cities and towns in
this general class, whereas there are
now 1,158. The population of these
cities in 1880 was nearly 13,000.000,
showing that they have more than
doubled their inhabitants in 20 years.
The percentage of urban population
will doubtless continue to increase for
some time, as there is still a strong
inclination on the part of the country
people, especially the young, to seek
fame and fortune in the towns or big
centers. But as this is essentially an
agricultural nation, and one in which
the life and the facilities of the farm
ing class are constantly progressing,
it would be regrettable if the flow to
ward the cities should continue to in
crease indefinitely. There is hope,
indeed, that there may come a re
action a movement back to the
quieter, more healthful and more
contented life of the farm. The cities
and towns, having grown so large and
having become so numerous, afford
batter local markets than the country
ever had before, and this is after all
the very life of progressive farming.
On the other hand, it is pleasing to
observe that along with the increas
ing population of the cities there is a
rapid and substantial betterment of
the conditions that formerly rendered
dangerous clojely congested popula
tions. Sanitation, health supervision,
water supply, transportation to
breezy suburbs, together with many
improvements in house building and
furnishings, all contribute to the
-comfort and the happiness of urban
BEIKQ OOTEBKOR Uf ILLINOIS.
St. Louis Republic.
Gov. Tates, of Illinois, in reply to
criticism of his appointments to the
state board of charities, contents him
self with the strenuous declaration
that, having been e.'ected governor,
he proposes to be governor
This would be a manful and com
mendable position if Gov. Yates cher
ished the proper conception of the
duties, responsibilities and rights at
taching to the office which he holds.
The trouble is. however, that he con
templates the office from a purely
spoils point of view. lie proposes to
be governor of Illinois for partisan
and personal benefit, and one of the
most important things in the eyes of
a man who thus regards a high pub-
Iic trust Isj the building up of a parti
san and personal machine.'
It is this view of the governorship
which led (lo v. Yates to handle the
state board a f charities as a factor in
the building up of such a machine.
He is trying to degrade this other
wise useful". body to. the purposes of
spoils politics . He would appoint to
its xnembershi p the professional poli
ticians who ha ve served his personal
purposes and who will continue to
serve them. A political "pull' is
stranger than fit nee for office with
Gov. Yates. For this Teason he has so
disgusted two worth'" members of the
charity board. Dr. ljrsch and Miss
Lathrcp, that they have resigned
from the board.
Gov. Yates determination to "be
governor" is based on an unworthy
conception of that high office, lie
should endeavor tube governor for
the public good, not for private
political profit. The trouble In the
charity board has revealed the Yates
character with singular clearness.
The revelation is not promising for
the people of Illin us.

A Tot Walloper.

showed that there was then only one

the term "pot walloper" is literally one

Briefly it's this: We have reached a point in the season where we
must either make unprecedented price concession or carry a great
quantity of summer merchandise over until next season. This mer
chandise represents many dollars of capital, lying idle for a number
of months if not disposed of. If we can remove thete goods at the
prices we have marked them, we do our patrons a good turn make
the dull month of August a busy one besides pursuing the proper
business course for ourselves.
in every part of store many of them that are extremely low in fact
we have curtailed our advertising space in announcing this August
clearing sale in order to better afford to make lower prices. Every
price concession that you can possibly hope for, has been met in the
marking down of goods for final clearing sale.
