POPULATION LARGER
THAN WAS EXPECTED
Figures Show Greater Per Cent. of Increase
From 1900 to 1910 Than Took Place in *
Previous Decade.
Washlngton, D. C, Deccniber 11.?In
connectlon wlth the announcemont ot
tho population of thc Unlted States,
mado yesterday, the Director of tho
Census mado tho following annottneo
inent:
r hellevo that tho population of Con
tlnental Unlted States, 91,972,2G6, Ih
somewhat greater tlian waa expected
hy most people, espeelnlly stntlstlclans.
Thc figures show a greater por cent. of
Increase from 1030 to 1910 than took
place from 1890 to 1900, namoly, 21 por
cent., as compared wlth '20.1 per cont.
Krom 1850 to 1900 each succcedlng cen?
sus except that' of 1870 showed a fall?
lng off ln the rato per cent. of In?
crease. Thls was to bc expected, bo
cause, In new countrles generally, tho
rate of growth I? higher than In old
count rles.
The fact that the per cent. of In?
crease has boen higher during the past
decade than during the decado beforo
is probably due to Rreator net addl?
llon.. to the population through lninil
i_ iat ion. The natural Increase of tho
population has beon probably somowhat
less from ID00 to 19in than It was
from 1890 to 1900.
Hrlntlvr Growtll of I.IITerenl Stnte?.
There hns been a very widc dlsparity
in the rate of ferbwth of dlfferent States
durlnir the past decade?a more mnrked
dlsparity than has appeared at any
other census for a lonp time. The
range ls from a decrense. of 3-10 of 1
per cent. in Iowa to an Increase of 120
per cent. in Washlngton. Tlie country
Is plainlv rharke'd off In broad groups'
nf states. according to tlie dlfferences
in the rate of increase.
The States showlnK the largest rates
of increase. falllng below 10 per cen
are flve in the great central sectlon
of the country, uamely, Iowa, Mlssourl,
Kentucky and Tennessee; the three
northora New England states and
Maryland and fielaware.
The States showlhg tho next lilKhcr

Kans.'-s. and. on the other hand, a great
helt of Southern States, namely, Vlr

Cleorgla, Alabama and MIsslssIppl.
Si ites which show nn Increase from
_'0 to 3 ' per cent., and whlch there?

The States which show an increas*

The States lncludcd ln the flrst four

the Northern Sectlon: those in the
South Atlantlc, Kast South Central and
West South Central as the Southern sec?
tlon, and those ln the Mountain and
Paelflc as the Western Sectlon.
Thc population of these nine geo
graphic dlvlslons ln 1910 ls aa follows:
New England, G,552,681; Mlddle Atlan?
tlc, 19,315,892; Kast North Central, 18,
250,021; West North Central, 11,637,921;

Central, 8,409,901; West South Central,
8,784,534; Mountain. 2.C--,517; Paclilc,
4,102.304. The nopulation of tho North?
ern Sectlon is 55,757.115; Southern Sec?
tlon, ?9,889,333; Western Sectlon, 6,S25.
821.
The per conts. of increase from 1900
to 1910 in the geographio dlvlslon.. are
as follows: New Kngland, 17.2 per cent.;
Mlddle Atlantlc, 25.0; Kast North Cen?
tral, 11.2; West North Central, 12.5;
South Atlantlc, 16.8; East South Cen?
tral, 11.1; West South Central, 34.5;
Mountain, 57.::; Paclflc, 73.5. The In?
crease was 17.7 per cent. ln the North?
ern Sectlon, 10.S per cent. ln tho South?
ern sectlon, and 66.S por cent. in thc
Western Sectlon.
Tho por conts of Increase from 1890
to 1900 were for the main geograpliie
dlvlslons as follows: New Kngland, 19
per cent.; Mlddle Atlantlc, 21.0; Kast
North Central, 18.6; West North Cen?
tral, 15.8; South Atlantlc, 17.9; Kast
South Central, 17.1; West South Cen?
tral, 37.8; Mountain, ns.0, and Paclflc,
28.0. During that decade tho popula?
tion of the Northern sectlon Increased
yi.4 per cent.; Southern sectlon, 22.1
|fer cent., and Western sectlon, 32.0
per cent.
The fact that tlie rate of increase for
tha country as a whole was greater
from 1900 to 1910 than during during
tho precedlng decade was due entlrely
to tho added rate of growth ln the
Mlddle Atlantlc, .Mountain and Paelflc
dlvlslons. In nll slx of tho other dlvl?
slons the Increase during tho last de?
cade was less than during the previ?
ous one.
[tela-tY- Gro-th of I rbnn and Ilural
Population,
As at every previous census, the
prosetit census wlll dlsclose a very
great dlfference ln the rate of the
growth of oltles as compared wlth
small towns and rural dlstrlets. Th
standard adopted by the Census Bur?
eau ln dlstlngtllshlng urban from rural
population, Is on the basls of places ol
2,500 inlinliltalits. hut at the preseul
time lt Is posslble to dl-tinguish only
tl,e relative growth ln places of 25,00(1
Or moro Inhabllants ns compured wlth
all othor terrltory, As there has beon
doubtless a docldedly more rapld
growth ln placen between 2,500 and
25,000 lnhabitants than ln small plaees
and rural dlstricts, thc ligurcs avuil
uble now do not tell the wholo story.
The populatlon of citles of "J5.000
lnhabitants ls 28,508,007, or 31.0 per
cent. of the total population. tn I90ij
the populatlon of citles of 2,000 lnhabi?
tants or moro was 25.9 per cent. of tlio
total, and tu lS'JO, 22.2 per cent. batei
stntlstlcs wlll probably show that moro
thnn 45 por cent. of thc country is ur
ban, that is, lu placca Of 2,500 lnhabi?
tants or more.
In tho Nortli, the proportion of tho
lolal populatlon tliat llved ln citles of
25,000 lnhabitants, was 10.6 per cent. ln
1910, .'i-i.2 per cent. In l'JO'J, and 28,(1
per cent. ln 18'JO. ln thc South the
cbrrcspondlng per cents are 12.S per
cent. ln 1310, 10.1 per cent. ln 1300 and
9.6 per cent ln 1890. In the west tho
proportion living ln citles of 25,000 In
habltants or moro Is 31.0 per cent. ln
1910 ns coniparod wlth 25.2 In 1900,
and 22.0 per cent In 1890.
The populatlon Uvlng ln citles of
25,000 or moro lnhabitants haa Increas?
ed much more rapldly thnn that in the
rest of the country. The population
of such citles In 1910 waa 2S,50S,007 as
comparcd wlth 21,078,183 for the same
perlods ln 1900; tho Increase being 7,
429,813, or 35.2 per cent.
The populatlon ln the rest of thc
country, Including smaller citles nnd
rural dlstricts, ln 1910 was 63,4641259,
as compared wlth 54.916,336 ln 1900;
the lncreaso helng 8,647,873, or only
about a mllllon moro than thc Increase
of the citles alono. Tho per cent ol
lncreaso was 16.6 per cent. or loss than
liulf the rate shown by cltica of 28,000
lnhabitants,
Stated another way,' I5.C por cent
of the lncreaso of tho populatlon of
tho Unltod StatOB from 1900 to 1910
occurred In citles having 2,000 lnhabi?
tants or more.
Whlle there has been probably o
somewhat greater difference between
the rate of growth of urban popula?
tlon and of rural populatlon durlng
the last docade than during that pre

AREEXAGGERATED
Ambassador Declares Trouble in
Mexico Has Never Reached
Significant Point.
Washlngton, D. C? December 11.?
Declarlng that exaggeratcd accounts
of the revolutionary movement In Mex?
ico had magnillcd Its Importance ln
the mlnds of many Americans, benoi
de la Barra, Mexican ambassador to tha
United States, in discussing the situa?
tion to-day, sald that the trouble. had
at no tlme appronched u point of Big
nlftcance. Normal condltions, hu said,
rolgn to-day throughout the republlc
except ln a pnrt of the State of Chl?
huahua. where thc government forces
are pursuing a band of 100 rcvolutlon
tlla 'statement, be added, was based
upon ottlcial advlces from hls goyern
inont. which had kept hlm elosely ad?
vised of the progress of eyents; there?
fore. ho could authorit'itively stnte
that tho llves and lnterests of natives
and foroigners allke, ware perfectly
secure.
The ambassador sald that a numbet
of revolutionary SUCCOSSOS bad been
reported and later denled, "which un
true statenients," he stated, "havo nol
only rellected upon the reputatlon ot
Mexico us a poaoo-lovlng country?a
reputatlon which bas gained a stablr
foundatlon in the last thlrty years?-but
thev also have had their effect upon
Americans wlth lnterests ln Moxico.
und havo glven rlso to unrest and a
spirit of suspiclon as to the sccurlty
of such interests." llo. said tho gov?
ernment of General Dlaz was abso?
lutely secure, ond that forelgn inter?
ests were in no danger.
Contlnuing, the ambas.sador sald:
"The BOditlonarlos nre being dealt witl
in a lawful imd orderly manner. Tlu
cases of all who aro taken into cus?
tody because of tholr pa.rtlcipa.tlon Ir
the' rcbcllion aro ln the hands of th.
courts of Mexico.
"The revolt hus dbmonstrated these
three things: Tho strength of the gov?
ernment and tho spirit of justlce thal
guldes tlio people, tlie. loyalty of th(
ormy and the support by the poopli
generallv of a course of peaco am
order, showing their satisfaction witl
present condltions."
The ambassador declared enipliati
eallv thnt not a soldler had proved dis
loyal to tho colors of Oeneral Dlns.
