Greater New Tork probably will poll
a larger vote than any one of thirty
r.lne Btates November S. The total reg
istration for 1900 In Greater New Tork
Is 848.154. Deducting the usual average
percentage of registered electors who
fail to cast a ballot it is found that
the probable vote In the city November
will be 698,000. This total was ex
ceeded by six states only In 1896: Illi
nois with 1.090.891; Indiana, 37.119; Mis
souri, 71.019; New Tork. 1.424,135; Ohio,
1.015,293; and Pennsylvania, 1,194.355.
Only three other states cast a total vote
In 1R9S at all approaching the vote to
be expected in Greater New Tork this
year, namely, Iowa. 541.547: Michigan,
644.762. and Texas. 526.692. These totals
are so far below the anticipated figures
for Greater New Toft that it Is not
likely the increase of the last four years
will bring them up to the city's ag
gregate. Chicago Record: It appears very prob
able that one Interesting feature of the
campaign will be a largely increased
vote of some of the smaller parties, both
the Prohibitionists and the Socialist
Labor parties profiting. The lack of any
pronounced enthusiasm in the campaign
has been favorable to these parties, and
both have been making especial efforts.
Pour years ago, for instance, the Social
ists polled but 36.274 votes. This year
the leaders of the party are counting
upon a vote of 200,000, and possibly
much more than that. The position
which they have taken is radical, and
as it practically assumes that there is
little choice between the two leading
parties it appears by no means certain
that the defections due to the Socialist
vote will come altogether from one
party. The Socialists, In fact, having set
themselves to secure an official ballot
in as many states as possible and to
poll a vote which must compel consider
ation of the Socialist propaganda by
both people and politicians, have been
working to some purpose. No one need
be surprised if the aggregate vote of
the smaller parties on election day is
found to be one of the most noteworthy
fa&turea of the eleoUoa.
PRICES LOWEB AND HIGHER.
A remarkable fall in the prices of
manufactures in nearly all of the great
classes is shown by the official figures
of the treasury bureau of statistics pre
pared for the current number of the
Monthly Summary and by recent issues
of Dun's and Bradstreet's. Comparing
prlcss at the beginning of the present
month with those at the beginning of
the present year a fall of from 10 per
cent to 40 per cent is shown. Tin plate
shows a reduction of 24 per cent on Oc
tober 1, 1900, as compared with January
1, 1900; refined petroleum, 21 per cent;
common window glass, 12 per cent;
wire nails, 30 per cent; barbed wire, 26
per cent; Bessemer pig Iron, 46 per cent;
steel rails, 26 per cent; yellow pine lum
ber, 14 per cent; sisal rope, 3S per cent;
Manila rope, 32 per cent; leather, 10 per
cent; shoes of various grades, from 7
per cent to 10 per cent; woolen dress
goods of various grades, from 5 per cent
to 12 per cent.
The prices of leading articles of man
ufacture and farm production are regu
larly gathered by the bureau of statis
tics for publication in its monthly Sum
mary of Commerce and Finance, and it
is from this and from the publications
of Bradstreet's, Dun's Review, The Iron
Age. and the Cincinnati Price Current
that the figures given herewith are ob
tained. "While nearly all of the figures relating
to manufactured articles show a reduc
tion on October 1, 1900, as compared
with January 1. 1300, nearly all figures
on prices of farm products show an ad
vance during the same time. Corn
shows an advance from 39c per bushel
on January 1st to 48c on October 1st;
wheat, from 78. 8c per bushel on January
1st to 79.7c on October 1st; barley, from
45c per bushel on January 1st, to 59c

Why do people go crazy? That question
Is answered by the report of the superin
tendent of the Osawatomie asylum.
Contrary to the prevailing belief very
few people become insane from disap
pointment in love.
Ill hea'th leads with the greatest per
centage, while heredity is a close second.
Next comes intemperance. The lowest of
all is disappointment of love, while next
above is cigarettes.
The property of the state insane asylum
at Osawatomie is valued at $650,000. The
Institution contains 1,027 patients; 601
males and 526 females. There were dur
ing the past two years 236 deaths: 98 were
discharged restored, the percentage of
those restored under treatment at the
asylum, during the last year being 24.
Since the asvlum at Osawatomie has
been established 4.939 patients have been
admitted. reath has come to 1,302 and
1,5."0 have been discharged as cured.
The patients and employes make a total
of 1,200 people at the institution and the
biennial report filed with the governor
contains this statement by the superin
tendent: A comparison will show that, no town of
1.2'0 people in the state has so few people
confined to their beds as we have here.
The general health is good. -
Numerous improvements have been
made at Osawatomie during the past two
years. Roads and walks have been im
proved; new steam pumps, filters, water
heaters, painting both buildings and roofs.
12. 000 black baws have been, put in the
ponds on the farm and other property im
provements have been added.
The superintendent of the asylum wants
the staLe to bore for gas to supply the
Institution: he asks for a cold storage
plant: more land, a canning factory, for
which the following appropx-iations are

This makes a total of $53,000, which the
institution will ask for through the board
of charities at the next session of the leg
islature. L. L. Uhls. the superintendent, does not
forget to suggest that the salaries of sup
erintendents of asylums should be raised
and calls attention to the fact that the
superintendent of a similar institution in
an adjoining state receives exactly, per
annum, the amount representing the com
bined salaries of the two Kansas super
intendents. Since the Osawatomie asylum was es
tablished 40 inmates have escaped and
were dropped from the records. Fortv
four were found to be not insane and were
restored to their families. These cases

GROWTH OF CITIES.
Census Returns Grouped and
Washington, Oct 26. The census bu
reau in a bulletin just issued summar
izes the returns of population of cities
having 25,000 inhabitants or more in 1900,
the individual census of each of these
cities having been officially announced
heretofore. There are 159 of these, and
the bulletin shows that the per centag
of increase in their population from 1890
to 1900 was 32.5. as against 49.6 for the
same cities in the previous decade. The
absolute increase in the population of
these cities from 1890 to 1900 was 4.
839.136, or 82,426 less than the absolute
increase from 1880 to 1890, when it was
4,921,562. The 159 cities combined have
a population in 1900 of 19.694.625, against
14.855.480 in 1890. and 9,933,927 in 1880. Of
these 159 cities divided into four classes,
19 has 200,000 and over. 1!) had 100,000
and under 200,000, 40 had 50,000 and un
der 100,000, and 81 had 25,000 and under
In 1880 there were but 20 cities which
contained more than 100,000 inhabitants,
btit in 1S90 this number had increased to
28 .and in 1900 to 38.
In 1900 there are 78 cities of 50.000 in
habitants or more as compared with 58
in 1SS0 and 35 in 1880.
The combined population in 1900, of
the 19 cities of the first class is 11,795.809
as against a population in 1S90 of 8.879,
105, representing an increase during the
ten years of 2.916,804. or 32.8 per cent.
The same cities showed an increase from
1880 to 1890 of 2,567,452, or 40.6 per cent

3,000,000 inhabitants, properly stands by
itself; two cities, Chicago and Philadel
phia, each of which has a population In
excess of a million; three cities, St.
Louis, Boston and Baltimore.which have
a population of half a million each; five
cities, Cleveland, Buffalo, San Francisco,
Cincinnati and Pittsburg, which have a
population of between 300,000 and 400,000
each; and eight cities, New Orleans, De
troit, Milwaukee, Washington, Newark,
Jersey City, Louisville, and Minneapo
lis, which have a population of between
200,000 and 300,000 each.
New York, under the act of consolida
tion which became effective January 1,
1898, has grown to be a city of nearly
3,500,000 inhabitants in 1900, as compared
with a population for what was former
ly New Tork city of a little more than
1.500,000 in 1890, and substantially 1,200,
000 in 1880. The population of the terri
tory now comprised within the present
limits of New York was approximately
2.500,000 in 1890 and 1,400,000 in 1880. It
is the premier city of the country in
point of population, a position which it
has uniformly held at each decennial cen
sus since and including 1790.
Chicago, with practically 1.700.000 in
habitants and Philadelphia with not quite
1,300.000 inhabitants hold the second and
third places in 1900, the same as in 1890,
although at the census of 180 their posi
tions were reversed, Philadelphia then
having nearly 850,000 inhabitants as com
pared with not much more than 500,000 for
St. Louis, Boston and Baltimore, the
next largest cities, have not changed their
relative positions in 1890. Cleveland and
Buffalo have both increased materially in
population during the last ten years and
now take precedence over San Francisco
and Cincinnati, which in 1S90 were in the
seventh and eighth places in point of pop
ulation. Pittsburg also shows a large in
crease in population since 1890 and is now
the eleventh largest city In the country,
having exchanged places with New Or
leans. Among the most notable changes in the
rank of cities which have taken place in
1900, as compared with 1880, may be men
tioned that of Seattle, which has ad
vanced from the 150th to the 4Sth place;
Los Angeles, from the 135th to the 3'ith
place; Luluth, from the 150th to the 72nd
place: Kansas City, Kan., from th 153rd
to the 76th place, and Portland, Ore., from
tne lustn to tne cma place, inner notice
able changes In rank from 1880 to 1900 are
Tacoma, from 155 to 103 and Spokano from
157 to 106.
The following named states and territor
ies in 1900 do not contain any city with a
population of 25,000 or more:
Arizona, Idaho, Indian Territory, Mis
sissippi, Nevada, New Mexico, North
Carolina, N rth Dakota. Ok.ah ma, South
Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming.
Of the whole number of cities having
25 000 Inhabitants or more in 1!0, seventy
are found in the north Atlantic division,
forty-eight in the north central division,
eighteen in the south central division,
twelve in the western division, and eleven
in the South Atlantic division.
Massachusetts has the largest number
of such cities, namely, twenty and Is fol
lowed by Pennsylvania, with eighteen and
New York with twelve. The most signi
ficant growth of cities is that for the three
cities in the state of Washington, namely
S-aitle, Spokane and Tacoma. These ihree
cities combined had only 4,9al inhabitants
in 1S80, but their population had increased
to 98.765 in 1S90 and to 155.233 in 1900, the

Syracuse, N. T., Oct 26. The closing
speeches of an arduous day in the Roose
velt campaign were made at Auburn and
Syracuse, after Jumps through widely
divergent counties. Altogether it was a
favorable day, because while iu Auburn
and Syracuse there were several inter
ruptions, the questions and answers
were rather in a good-natured form,
and there was no friction which in

questioner or answerer to enter into a

"How about Metcalf?" came an in
terruption. "Metcalf?" said the governor in a
puzzled tone. Then remembering that
Mr. Metcalf was president of the D. M.

At Syracuse the governor was first
driven to a ptand erected on the square
in front of the Welling opera house, in
which he was to speak later. The crowd
was so dense that it was only with the
utmost difficulty the police could open
a way sufficiently wide for his carriage
to pass through. When the governor got
on the stand the crowd surged up
against it with irresistible force, and it
was not until the governor himself in
duced those in the rear to crowd the
other was that the chush was somewhat
abated. "I don't care whom you are
going to vote for for president," said the
governor; "don't hurt the women and

The governor's party and the police
then formed themselves into what 'a

and succeeded in reaching the hall.
The governor talked for an hour,
touching most of the lpsues involved but
dwelling particularly on trusts and mil
itary matters. He addressed his audience
mostly on the same lines as he has
speken before on these issues. In speak
