POPULATION OF THE CITY AND COUNTY
Presented in an. Interesting Tabu
THE TOTAL IS 270,519
The report of Maj. Moore for the past fis
cal year contains a summary of the census
taken during the year, giving a de
tailed statement of the population of
squares, police precincts, villages, and gives
the population of Georgetown and the coun
ty. This report, as compared with the cen
sus of 1893, shows an increase during the
three years of 12,088, the population in 1802
being 258,431, as against a total of 270,510
this year. The report shows the villages
and roads in the county, giving the increase
or decrease, as the case may be, during the
three years. The census of 1802 shows the

results show an increase in the county of

FOR A JEWISH TEMPLE.
Citizen** Appointed on the Genernl
Committee for the Fair.
A plan is being formulated among the
Hebrews of this city for the construction
of a Jewish temple that shall be worthy
of the national capital. The Jewish con
gregation of Washington owns the struc
ture now in use, the temple of the Wash
ington Hebrew congregation on 8th street,
the property being valued at $30,000. It is
probable that this will be sold, and the
proceeds used in the erection of an edi
fice in a more central location, the desire
of some members being for a building on
a coi ?r lot.
It will be necessary to raise more money
than the congregation now has in sight,
hcwever, and to this end a fair will be
given in Odd Fellows' Hall, 7th street,
February 10 to 22, inclusive. The execu
tive committee met last evening at the
temple and reports were made from va
rious subcommittees showing that a good
start had been made in the preparations
for the fair. The executive committee con

A Large Gathering Assembled in
Metverott Hall Liittt Mylit.
The authors' reading at Metzerott Hall
last evening, for the benefit of the restora

a social 'as well as a financial success. An
audience of large proportions, composed of
representative people in official and social
life, was present and gave an appreciative J
reception to the two well-known authors,
F. Hopkinson Smith and Thomas Nelson
The stage was set as a parlor scene and
was adorned with llovvers and foliage
plants. On the ledge of the boxes on each
side were magnificent bunches of roses and
violets. Mrs. Cleveland, accompanied by
Secretary and Mrs. Lamont, occupied one
of the boxes, and Mrs. Page and Mrs.
Hearst the other. A reading desk had been
placed in the center of the stage, and be
hind it was a large chair, which was oc
cupied by Postmaster General Wilson. He
made a few introductory remarks, which
were graceful and appropriate, touching
not only upon the history of the university
and the importance of the work of restor
ing the recently burned building, but refer

who had tendered their services in such a
cause in such terms that the audience
