Special Correspondence.
WAsniMSTOx, July 24. The pessi
mistic prophecy which gained cur
lency some weeks ago that our ratio of
Increase In population had not been
maintained during the past few years
is not verified by facts. It was alleged
that the increase in the population of
the United States since 1S90 would not
be greater in 1000 than 10,000,000,
which, added to the total in 1S00,
would bring up the total to 72,000.000.
Closer observation shows that while
the increase lu population since 1SV0
has been put generally at 1,200,000 a
year, it wao iu fact less at the begin
ning of the period and more at the
cloe. From 1S70 to 1SS0 the annual
gain In population in the United States
averaged 1,100,000, In the ten years
between 1SS0 and 1S90 the annual gain
averaged 1,240,000. It is quite true
that for the whole period of 20 years
the average annual increase was
l,200.f-"0, but the gain In the second
ten years was materially larger than
during the first There Is no reason
whatever yet furnished why the pop
ulation of the United States between
1S90 and 1900 should in its growth be
gauged by the ten years following the
close of the civil war, some of the un
favorable effects of which continued
to be reflected for many years after
ward. Again the restrictions imposed
on immigration, while they have re
duced the total number of newcomers,
have reduced them In a way to have
least influence oil the growth of pop
ulation. The decrepit, the infirm, the
ailing, the needy and the criminal have
been excluded, but those who add to
the wealth and contribute to the bene
fit of a country have been admitted on
the same terms as heretofore.
Sanitary regulations in the large
cities have materially decreased the
death rate, and it is a gratifying fact
that the increase of urban population
Is accompanied by an elevation of the
character of the people. The statistics
of city population of 1S90 are Interest
ing in this connection.
Below are the gross increases in
their order in the 23 leading American
cities; also the increase In the pre
ceding decade for comparative pur
poses, as well as their total popula
tion in 1S00:

This exhibit Includes all the cities In
the United States exceeding 100,000 in
population In 1S90. But a number of
others with less population also made
notable Increases in the last decade,
exceeding some of those enumerated.
According to the last federal census
there were approximately 35,000,000
white inhabitants of the United Suites,
7,500,000 colored inhabitants, 100,000
.Mongolians and 58,000 civilized In
dians. The ratio of increase among
the Chinese compared with the pre
vious census was only 1 per cent The
civilized Indians showed a falling off,
while the increase among the colored
population of the country was only 13
per cent, as against 25 per cent in the
total number of inhabitants. In other
words, the Increase of the white popu
lation Is about double that of the col
ored population, and, as each year the
proportion of white population grows
larger aud Uie proportion of colored
population iu the country grows corre
spondingly k-.v5, it is likely that the
rate of iucieiise iu the whole popula
tion grows larger from this cause. As
suming the increase of the colored pop
ulation of the country to be in accord
ance witli the same percentage as
ruled before the last national census,
the total number of colored inhabitants
as returned in 1900 would be 8,475,000,
and If tlie increase of the white popu
lation maintains the same proportion
as prior to lo'.SO the total number of
white inhabitants will be rG,400,00O,
and, witli the Chinese and civilized
Indians added the uncivilized Indiana
are not included in the cnsus the
total would be about 73,000.000,
