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
, 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
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,
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

Subject at Evening Service.
That the time has not arrived In
the history of the United States to

of opinion last night at the meeting of
the First church young people ' when
the debate upon this timely subject
was held. Walter Robinson argued
that the-country would be better off
if the great Influx of Immigrants were
to be checked and Fred Andres" took
i the opposite view, being of the . be
lief that all foreigners haveanfqaal
right to enter ths "country. " "The de
bate was an interesting .one and
many good arguments, pro ! and con.
were brought forth oy the affirmative
and negative. - x . v 'V;.'
The negative side presented V the
best arguments and presented them
In the best manner, giving them a
clear title to the decision, but popu
lar sentiment and prejudice being in
favor of the affirmative's point of

a just decision. However, the nega
tives got the credit for winning..
