WASHINGTON, Sept. 17.—The popu
lation of Chicago Is 2.186.H83, an In
cream of 486,708. or 88.7 per cent, as
compared with 1,008,875 In 1000.
This announcement leaves Chicago
ranking In population as the seoond city
of the United States, and the fourth
In the world.
Chicago has almost doubled Its pop
ulation since 1890, when the figures were
1.009,854. Its greatest growth during
that period waa between 1800 and 1000,
when there was an Increase of 54.4 per
cent. Its Increase In population during
the lant decade was not so great pro
portionately as that of New York, the
rate of Increase bring 10 per cent less
than that scored by the eastern city.
New York Is ret ahead by 2,581,550.
Chicago, however, rail claim dlstlnc

WASHINGTON, Sept. 17.—The sec
ond bulletin of tne census bureau
showing tho growth of cities was ls
aued today. Of the thirty-eight cities
which in 1900 had a population of
100,000 or more twenty T four are given,
and to these are added five which have
attained the 100,000 mark during tho
last decade. ,
The aggregate population of these
twenty-nine cities now is 13.596,819, as
a«ainst 10,376,012 In 1900, and 7,904,140
In 1890. The absolute Increase between
1890 and 1900 amounted to 2,471,872; be
tween 1900 and 1910 to 3,220,807.
Tho percentages of increase for this
aggregate population show very little
change in the rate of growth during
the two decades, being for the earlier
one 31.4 per cent and for the latter 31
per cent. The fact is noted that the
high rate of Increase is not confined
to any one geographical section.
Of the seven cities whoso rate ex
ceeded 40 per cent, two—Newark, N.
J., and Bridgeport, Conn.—are eastern;
one, Atlanta, is southern, and four-
Detroit, Denver, Kansas City and Co
lumbus—are western. Of the two cities
with the lowest rate one is eastern
and tho other is western. Remarking
upon the facts presented tho bulletin
"The rates of Increase for Atlanta,
Detroit, Denver and Kansas City must
be regarded as phenomenally high, but
even more extraordinary is the high
percentage for New York, which ex
ceeds the average for twenty-eight
cities in the group by 11.4 per cent,
and is itself exceeded by the rates of
only seven cities. The New York city
rate, moreover, has been maintained
at its present high point for two dec
ades, and may therefore be regarded
as a normal rate for that city."
Fifty-four cities of between 25,000
and 100,000 are given, showing an ag
gregate population of 2,723,498, as
against 901,766 in 1900, a gain of 43.2
per cent, a rate of growth which the
census bureau pronounced "phenom
enally high."
Of these fifty-four cities thirty-one
show a higher rats of increase of the
last decade than for the previous one.
So far no decrease is noted in any of
the cities.
The census bureau issued today sta
tistics giving the population of the
following cities:
Holyoke, Mass., has 57,730 people, an
increase of 12,018, or 26.3 per cent, as
compared with 45,712 in 1900.
Lowell, Mass., has 106,294 people, an
increase of 11,325, or 11.9 -per cent, as
compared with 94,,)69 in 1900. .
Pittsfield, Mass., has 32,121 people,
an increase of 10,355, or 47.6 per tent,
aa compared with 21,766 in 19U0.
Tho population of New Orleans is
839,075, an increase of 51,971, or 18.1
per cent, as compared with 287,104 in
While New Orleans' growth the last
decade was only slightly below her
percentage of Increase during the pre
vious decade the Crescent city, through
the more rapid growth of other cities
in the 100,000 class, loses its position of
twelfth in the list of the country's
largest cities and now occupies fif
teenth position. Detroit, with a 63 per
cent Increase, Milwaukee, with 31 per
cent and Newark, with 47.2 per cent,
all have jumped ahead of New Orleans
In the number of Inhabitants.
BEVERLY, Mass., Sept. 17.—When
President Taft starts for Cincinnati by
way of New Haven, tomorrow mid

ing Air Contests
Towns Report Aeronauts' Lights
Among the Stars—Endurance
and Distance Goals
[Associated Pressl
INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 17.—Drifting
northeast from this city are thirteen
balloons, the largest number that ever
started In a race me'it In the history
of ballooning, and piloted by the best
aeronauts In America —nine sailing to
win a chance to represent America in
tho International balloon race which
starts from St. Louis Octobeti 17, and
four.entered in the free-for-all event
to gain a diamond studded cur, 1.
A light breeze was blowing to the
northeast with tho exception of the
Chicago Drifter, loft th-3 Motor Speed
way at 3:58 this afternoon and was
carried rapidly away, but the breejo
died down and the last balloon to
leave tho course, the New York, which
rose at 6:5T>, was slow in travelinz
after its companions.
Only the long delay in sending up
the first balloon, due to the failure to
havo the big gas bags properly inflated
and the baskets provisioned on tlrn".,
marred the start of the grr>at contest.
All of the balloons traveled to the
northeast with the excetplon of the
America 11, which, piloted oy August
Post, has made two flights in inter
national races in Europe, tooU a more
easterly course.
Alan R. H.iwley is the pilot now
drifting with the Amerlci II and Aug
ust Post Is at his side.
Tho American championship race 's
both for endurance and distance. Dis
tance Is the goal for the four balloons
entered in the free-for-all contest.
Seventy-two hours Is the record for
endurance, made in an international
race which started from Berlin, and the
distance record is 852 miles, made by
Oscar Erbslobe, who sailed from St.
Louis to the New Jerey coast.
America 11. the first started In tho
American championship race, was
turned loose at 4:53 wtlh Allan R, Ilav, -
ley, pilot, and August Powt, aide, both
of New York. The balloon rose slowly
and floated almost directly east.
Floating 1 to the northeast, the direc
tion taken by the Drifter, Miss Sophia,
with William T. Assmann, pilot, and
Paul McCullough, aide, rose at 5:01, the
second balloon to start in the cham
pionship race. Miss Sophia skimmed
the ground, and her crew was kept
busy throwing out ballast until the
speedway fence was reported.
Dr. L. E. Custer, in the Luzerne of
Dayton, entered In the free-for-all,
started alone at 5:10, and reaching a
greater height than any of his prede
cessors, started to the northeast.
The Million Population dub balloon
was cheered loudly by the St. Louis
delegation as it was sent up at 5:19,
piloted by Louis Yon Phul, assisted by-
Joseph O'Reilly. The balloon followed
the others, going a little to the north.
The University City, piloted by Capt.
John Berry of St. Louis, left the
ground at 5:29 and floated to the north
east. On account of the leaky condi
tion of the balloon, Berry entered tho
free-for-all event instead of the cham
pionship race. Captain Berry won the
last American championship raco with
the University City.
At 5:36 the Pennsylvania, in the
championship event, piloted by Arthur
T. Athelholt, assisted by Conyers B.
Graham, both of Philadelphia, sailed
off in the direction taken by most of
the other balloons.
The balloons at latest reports were
racing in a general easterly direction,
probably over or toward Ohio.
A dispatch from Winchester, Ind..
near the Ohio line, said six balloons
had passed over that neighborhood
bound east.
These balloons probably "were the
same that had been sighted at Muncle
earlier in the night. The pilots of four
of them dropped cards identifying them
as the America 11, the Indiana 11, the
Buckeye and the Centennial.
No information has been recfifvea
from anywhere of the other craft.
MUNCIE, Ind., Sept. 17.—Six of the
balloons that started In the race from
tho Indianapolis Speedway today had
been reported at 9:30 p. m. as having
peised over towns near this city. They
had covered about sixty miles and were
slowly drifting northeast. None could
be identified.
Three balloons, the America 11, the
Indiana II and the Buckeye, nailed
over the city at 10 p. m. They were
identified by cards dropped by the
The America II paased over the busi
ness section of the city at a low alti
tude. She was going rapidly and soon
disappeared in the northeast, followed
by the Indiana II and the Buckeye.
The three balloons were separated by
only a few mlles 1

Five Contestants in Readiness
for Perilous Flight
BRIG, Switzerland, Sept. 17.— Every
thing- is in readiness for the great
eross-Alpe aeroplane flight from Brig,
at the head of the Rhone valley, over
the Simplon pass and down into Italy,
cvosslng I^ake Maggiore to Milan.
Under the rules, the contestants may
start irt any time, beginning tomorrow,
until September 28. but they must com
plete the air journey to Milan in a
single day.
The attempt is regarded by some as
foolhardy, as the aviator must rice
about 7000 feet immediately on leaving
the ground and maintain that altitude
for not less than half an hour to clear
Klmplon pnss. Descent anywhere in the
first twenty miles»of the rocky, precip
itous gorges would mean almost certain
death. , , .
George Chavez, the Peruvian aviator,
will etart in the monoplane with which
he recently made a height record of
8792 feet at Issy. He regardß the ex
treme cold of the mountain passes as
the greatest difficulty with which he
will have to cope.
Other starter* will be Cataneo, Pail
lette Winczlera and Weymann. With
the exception of ■Weymann, all the avi
ators will use monoplanes. Latham
has withdrawn, explaining that his mo
tor is Incapable of reaching the neces
sary hoieht. ;.■.■..

attorney, announced tonight that he
would take no further steps unless the
agreement Is attacked, or hia client
fails to receive the benefits to which
It entitles her.
The agreement was filed, he said,
only as a measure of protection.
It is generally admitted that inter
esting questions will be raised in the
trial of a suit now pending brought
against Chanler by his tailor to re
cover $980. One of these questions will
be the solvency of Chanler, and an
other, it seems likely, the legal worth

SYRACUSE, N. V., Sept. 17.—Coming
into a stronghold of the opposition, ex-
President Roosevelt today boldly chal
lenged the opponents of his political
doctrines to come out in the open and
fight if they dared.
He prophesied that if they did they
would be beaten.
The former president also gave warm
commendation of President Taft as a
public official, and expressed his ap
proval of a number of the accomplish
ments of the Taft administration.
Col. Rooeevelt did not Indorse the
administration as a whole. What ho
did say, however, placed him on record
for the first time in regard to many of
the more Important features of it,
breaking the silence which he had
maintained steadfastly on the subject,
except for his few brief references to
his successor made while he was on his
western trip.
He also defended his recent criticisms
of two decisions of the United States
supreme court, mado in a speech in
Denver, and quoted the words of Wil
liam H/Tat't, written when he was a
federal judge, to support his conten
tions that the people have a right to
criticise decisions of the courts.
When Col. Roosevelt arrived tha
state fair grounds, where he spoke,
were thronged with a crowd which
numbered move than 40,000. Before he
went to the speeakers' stand Col.
Roosevelt rdde around the mile track
at the head of a parade and received a
cordial welcome.
Almost all of the members of tha
committee which will have the colonel
in hand during his stay hero are iden
tified with the Unonuaga county Re
publican organization, oi which t'rancis
Hondrioks, ex-supurintendent or insur
ance, is the head. Mr. Hendricks is a
member o£ the Republican state com
mittee and voted against Col. Roose
volt when the state committee refused
to indorse him for temporary chairman
of the Republican state convention.
The colonel spent the evening at the
hime of Lieutenant Governor Horace
White, who gave a dinner for him.
There, too, he was in the hands of
men who are taking part in the fight
against him. Timothy L. Woodruff,
chairman of the state committee and
one of the leaders of the opposition to
Colonel Roosevelt, was here today,
shook hands with the colonel and ate
dinner with him.
Colonel Roosevelt and his adver
saries met each other with cheerful
faces and jested about their differences.
Lieutenant Governor White mado
one of the shortest speeches on record
when he introduced Colonel Roosevelt
at the fair grounds.
"We are hero today to welcome and
to honor Theodore Koosevelt," he said,
and that was all. . ,
The colonel, who had just seated
himself at the rear of tho stand to
wait until Mr. White had finished his
speech, looked up in surprise as he saw
the lieutenant governor backing Iron*
the railing.
"Do I speak now? he asked.
Mr White said the time had coma
and the colonel arose. He was In fight
ing trim us ho faced the crowd. Ha
himself said so. He shook his clenched
fists In the air and thundered forth his
message with all thu energy which ha
could muster. Several times ho de
parted lrom tho text of his prepared
speech to inject remarks to show how
earnestly he meant what he said.
"I wish my opponents would come
itno the open," he said.' "They shoot
from the bushes," he declared at an
other place, "but you could not make
them come Into the open and fight the
Another remark which caused the
crowd to cheer was made just as ho
ha.l again dared hip opponents to put
themselves on record against him.
"Friends, they won't do it," said the
colonel "They may criticise me, but
they 'will walk as though they were
treading on eggs before they take tho
other side."
Aftetr he had asserted that leaders
in business must act as servants or
the people and that the corporations
must be the creature and not tho
master of the people, he added:
"To paraphrase the words of Patrick
Henry, 'if that be Socialism, make the
most of If,"
Roosevelt, In the title of his address,
"The NVw Nationalism and the Old:
Morality," defended his position. "The
new nationalism," he reiterated,
"means nothing but an application to
new conditions of certain old and
fundamental moralities. It means an
invitation to meet the new problems of
the pro.«ent day in precisely the spirit
In which Lincoln and the men ot his
day met their new problems."
To his critics ho put this issue: "Is
any party willing to take the other
side ot tli" propositions of which com
platnt Is made? If so, It would be a
•rood thing to have the issue before tho
people for In the end the people would
most certainly decide in favor of the
principles emboi led In tho new nation

could' not continue to be a truo re
public, rt true democracy."
Tho speaker followed thla with a
justification of his attacks on the
United States supreme court. Ho
chose two arguments—one, that In hla
criticisms he had merely echoed tha
minority opinion of the court itself;
the other, that he had illustrious prece

and the example of President Taft,
