SMALL TOWNS GROWING SMALLER Hurl fol d Baptist Asswiatlou Chair man Shows Figures to Prove State ment Regarding Way the Church Falls toiCaro For I)rolgners. Charts containing some facts con cerning the state of Connecticut's population with reference to church work and workers were seen at the First Baptist church yesterday. In these charts, made out by W. E. Woodbury, chairman of the Hartford Baptist association, it is said that the Connecticut Baptist churches, like other evangelical churches, are in cheasing in membership, but are not keeping up with the increase in popu lation. In 1870 the population of this state was' 500,000 and in 1910 it was 1,100,000. In 1910 the population of the state had increased 23 per cent, and from 1880; when the Baptist church membership in Connecticut was 21,755, to 1910 when it had reached 26,902, the membership gain in this church was but 7 -. per cent. Foreigners Outnumber Natives. The second chart shown makes known the startling fact that at pres ent the Connecticut foreigners, the term meaning those whose parents were born outside of y the United States, are out-numbering the native whites. Figures show that in 1890 there were 350,000 in the state born of native white parents, comprising ebout fcjrty-eight per cent, of the en tire . population. ... Of foreign paren tage there - were 370,000, or fifty-two per cent, of the entire population. In 1910 the. total number born of native white parents reached 390,000. In the meantime, however, the foreign births had reached 700,000; leaving but thirty-five arid one-half per cent, of the population of the old stock, while the foreign element had in creased to sixty-four and one-half per cent, of the entire i population. Foreigners Multiply Rapidly. Another startling statement made is that the foreigners in this state mul tiply in the cities just five times as fast as 'native whites. From 1890 to' 1910 the native whites of native par ents increased but eighteen per cent. '.while the foreign born, or of foreign parents, : increased about 100 per cent. In towns ,of less than 2,500 from .1890 to 1910 the foreigners increased forty r per. cent, and1 thtf'riaCtlves decreased twenty-five per cent. i, :, ,i Where; the Forelgtiera Wye.-; J 5 Where do these foreigners live? Iii round numbers they are, spread out over the state as 'follows:.' "Russians, In New Haven, 12,600; Hartford, 10, J000; New 'Britain, 9,500; Waterbury, 8,000; Norwich, 2.800 and New Lon don, 1,400. Of the Italian race New Haven again lea-ds with 21,600; Wa terbury comes next with 10,300, Hart ford has 7,000; New . Britain has 2, 700; Bristol has 2,000; Torrington has 1,800 and New London has 1,300. These 'figures are from the 1910 cen sus and figures for 1914 would show a decided increase. In Hartford Association. . In the towns and , cities where the Baptist churches of the Hartford as sociation are located there is a total population of 199,000, of which 62.000 or less than one-thlrd are native whites and 134,000 -or more than two-thirds are foreigners. These fig ures Include 26,000 Irish, 22,000 Rus sians, 14,000 Italians and 1,600 Hun garians. New Haven's association is four-fifths foreign and one-fifth na tive whites. , Work for Natives. The Baptist state work for native Am erica ns one-third of the popula tion is carried on by 105 pastors and 140 churches. For the other two thirds of the population, made up of foreigners or new Americans as they are called, there are ten German and Swedish pastors with fourteen churches, thirteen missionaries and three places where a small mission is located, but without any resident mis sionary. Population Distribution. Among other things asserted by these charts is that the population of the largest centers is Increasing while that of the smaller cities is decreas ing. From 1890 to 1910 the towns of more than 2,500 people increased 400,000, or eighty-nine and three quarters per cent. On the other hand the towns of less than 2,500 de creased 8,000, or ten and one-quarter per cent. 154 Churches In State. Thirty-five of the 154 Baptist churches in this state are in towns of decreasing population. In the New London association seven out of ten churches are in such towns, while in the Stonlngton Union , there are four out of ten churches in such towns. ' In the Hartford association Colebrook has two churches, Corn wall a like number and Wethersfleld one. In these towns the population in 1840 was 1,232, 1,703 and 3,824 re spectively, but in 1910 the population had dropped off to 557, 1,016 and 3, 148 respectively. 59,000 Russians in Connecticut. There are 59,000 Russians living in Connecticut towns and cities where there are Baptist churches, yet there is no preacher for them. Even in New Britain there are only three such missionary workers, while in the Hartford association, to which this GREAT CLEARANCE SALE ( OF OMENTAL WSJGS UN PMOGKESS Many lovers of Fine Oriental Rugs throughout Connecticut are taking advantage of this Special Reduced Price Clearance Sale Which Includes futcclmous. of scarcity, beauty and extraordinary fineness as well as more modern and practical Oriental Rufis.
