As shown by tlie recent police census,"
the population of tlie District of Columbia
was, in the spring of tills year, 277.7S2,
of which 189,457 were whites and S8.325
colored. Approximately 32 per cent of
the entire population is, therefore, made
up ot the colored race. Tlie average
annual increase bince the last preceding
police census (December, 1SIM) has been
LIS per cent; for tlie whites 1.43 per
cent, and for the colored, .08 per cent.
The vital statistics for tlie fiscal year
just ended will be based upon the figures
given above.
There occurred during the year 5,737
deaths. Of these 3,21G were whites, and
2,521 colored.
The general death rate was, therefore,
20 71 per thousand. It has fallen below
tills figure only once during tiie past
twenty-two years (in lfeUS, 20.57), the
aicrago death rate for that time being
2:i 36. Among tlie whites the death rate
was 17 11, the lowest point readied at
any time during the above period. Tlie
death rate for the coloied race was, how
tier, 2S.50, the lowest, except in 16!I5.
when it reached 28.18.
The most satisfactory feature of the
year's mortality table is tlie very con
siderable diminution in the deaths from
''y.ymotir diseases " Tlie entire number of
such deaths recorded was 891, while dur
ing the pieceding year it was 1,051. In
certain dlseas?s of this class the death
list shows an increase- Thus the number
of fatal cases of diphtheria rose from 75
to 110; of vhoplng cough from 22 to 05;
and of grippe from 53 to 118. The de
crease in the total number of deaths of
tltis class Is accounted for by the diminu
tion in the number of fatal cas.!s of measles
from 70 to 3", of scarlet fever, from 13 to
l; or crr.up (so-caliedi, from 9 to G; of
typhoid fever, from 228 to 1 17; of malar
ial fever (so-called), from 81 to 57; and
ot diarrhoeal diseasas, from 108 to 358.
The number of deaths front diphtheria
is hot excessive, as, except dJring the
ye&T Jmm.-dlately preceding, It has i-ot
during any previous year fallen so low
since 1R89. The actual number of cases
of this disease which were reported was
There is no previous record of any year
passing with but a ehmle death from
scarlet fevr. Tlie prevailing mild type
of this di5ca.c is indiraicd by tlie fact
that there wore 100 cases registered dur
ing the year covered by this statement.
The most Impoitant feature in tiie im
provement In the death-rate In the zymotic-
class is the very marked decrease in tlie
number of fatal cases of the filth dis
eases, viz., typhoid fever and diarrheal
diseases And while malarial fever itself
cannot be properly classed with such dis
eases, the extreme rarity of fatal cases
of"suth fever, in this climate, in the prac
tice of many of the best-infonncd physi-
clans, renders it not unlikely that many
ot4he deaths reported as due to this dls-.
ease were due to typhoid fever. So that
the apparent decrease in tlie prevalence
of "malarial fever" may also be considered
in this connection.
This decrease is as follows:
Typhoid fever 228

"Wliile it is cot entirely safe to bate
conclusions upon this improvement in the
dea'Ji rate for a iincjle year, yet its coin
cidence with tlie cloMnsj of a very consid
erable number or fciirfacc wells, with tlie
leplucen.ent of more than a thousand box.

drainage of the premises, and with a
closer supervision of the milk supply, is very
Higeestive ot some relation of cuube and
rrect, and posvibly justifies us in pn not
ing Mill further Improvement In the future
The present fall in the typhoid fever death
late ia especially satlsf actor y, as it had
continually increased since 1887. The
death rati- from thib disease for the past
year, .53 per thousand, is the lowest bince
3S84, and is considerably lower than that
for the past twenty-two years, .04.
The number or deaths fnm tuberculOM's
was 85S, wliile during the preceding year
there were 977 deaths charged to this
From violence there were 228 deaths,
a df-creasa of C during tlie year. Of th se,
9 resulted fromin juries received fromstreet
railway cars, an increase or 3, and 15
rrotn Injuries received froms team railways,
a decrea-12 of 2. The figures in relation to
steam railways are in excess, or co'iv-c,
of the number of fatal accidents fioiusueli
conveyances which actually occurred with
in tlie District of Columbia . as not infre
quently persons who have been .eilo-jsly
injured in adjoining States are brought
here for treatment and die, wliile the
ievur.se seldom occurs.
Tlie number of deaths from suicide was
47, an Increase of 9 over tlie correspond
ing fip-ures for the preceding yi-ar, and an
increase of G , or almost 15 per cent over
tl-c highest number previously recorded.
Tlie avcraga number of suicnls per an
uuiii during tlie past twenty-two years has
been 17.2; during the five years' period,
lf7& to l8S2,ic was 12; from tSS:5 to 1887
it lose to 17.4: during tlie following five
yeiiis, 1S8S to 1892, it was 23.2, and
during the period just ended , 1893 to 1897,
it was 39.4. The population has nut
diublPd, but the n'inibcr of suicides has
increased more than three-fold.
The number of births reported was 4,-
573, which is probably at least one-third
less than the number which actually oc
curred. Marriage returns were received from 1,
358 casei, a decrease of 879, due prob
ably to a very general ignorance of tlie
fact that the recently enacted marriage
law did not repeal the ordinance requiring
that such ceremonies be reported to the
health office.
Tlie frequent failures to make the returns
of births and marriages is greatly to be
deprecated, but since a knowledge of such
t eciirrences does not reach the health office
unless such returns be made, It Is very dif
ficult to secure the evidence necessary to
enforce the law through the courts.
The mortality in the District during the
p.ist week was 120, as compared with 12s
in thr one preceding. Classified as to race.

W. R. Van Horn has been appointed post
master at Brightwood, U. C , vice A. G.
Osborn, removed. As a eonsequenceof this
action that enterprising suburb is all agog
with excitement and comment The Bright
wood postotfico district is about one mile
Equate In extent that is, people living
within a mile radius ot the postofficc gen
erally get their mail there.
The puMoffice conducted by Mr. Osborn
is at the intersection or terminus of five
populous highways, Brightwood avenue,
Fourteenth streat road, Military road,
Magnolia avenue and Milkhoutc Ford road.
The new postofficc will he located about
half a mile souih on the Brightwood ave
nue.ln what is known as Brightwood Park,
a large subuivision. The new postmaster
keeps a grocery at that point. He is a
native of Pennsylvania, is thirty-seven
years of age, and has been a resident of
the place about five years.
The retiring postmaster is an elderly
man, known as "Squire" Osborn, from his
having been a Justice ot the peace. Squire
Osborn has been a life-long resident of
Brightwood, and has- been identified with
the postorncc there since 1862, at which
lime hn was made assistant postmaster.
In May, 1872, he was appointed postmas
ter, and has held the office continuously
since. He is also a grocer. The store
and potorfice have been on the same site
for thirty-five years, surh a long period
of time, indeed, that the change ot pott
masters has come in the nature of u sur
prise to a majority of the residents ot tlie
suburb. Both the retiring and incoming
postmasters were candidates for the office
of postmaster.
According to Mr. Van Horn, his backers
in hih candidacy for the place were Sona'.cr
Wellington, Congiessman MeDonaIdofMaTy-
land, B. 11. Warner and Louis D. Wine. He
was strongly indorsed by Mr. Fred Grimme
and others, of Brightwood Park. He will
probably receive hlscommlsslon in a few
days, and will take 'charge of the office
August 1.
A Times reporter, visited Brightwood
last night, and looked the ground, mer.
After gaining a couple of pointers as to
the topographical situation, tlie reporter
icpaired to the residence of the retiring
postmaster, some distance up the ioad;aud
later to the residence of fchcincoming post
master, adjoining his store.
"I had noideaot the cliangcin contempla
tion," said Mr. Osborn, "until quite re
cenUy, and the idea tliata change Would be
made In the office of postmaster was so
far removed from my mind that I did not
think it necessary to secure the support
of myfriends for my reappointment. Wren
I learned that I had a competitor in the
field I at once circulated a paper and se
cured every name In Brightwood, except
two. Two gentlemen, one a physician,
named Stone, and the other a
department clerk, named Cox, re
fused to eign, saying that they would prefer
not to sign either the paper of myself or
that ot my competitor."
After reciting the fact ot his long con
nection with the office, Mr. Osborn said:
"The change virtually discontinues the
Brightwood office and establishes one a
half a mile away from the most con
venient aiot in the postofficc district.

office lias been centrally and most con
veniently located.
Mr. Van Horn assarts, however, that
the new office will be in the geographical
center ot the BrJghtwod postoff ice district
"The district practically extends," said
Mr Van Horn, "from Petworth on uie
south to Itock Cieek road on the north, and
from Blair road on the east to Blagden
load on the west. There are about sixty-five
families in Brightwood Park, and
I easily secured their Indorsement for the
I-ostmastership; I suppose largely becau-e
th-jy wanted a postoffice near at hand
Brightwood Park is a large and growing
place, and should liave the samj post
office facilities as Brightwood It is
much mor; convenient to the residents in
everyway than the old office. Mostoftliu
people who get their mail at the Bright
wood office come from this direction, and
the n?w crfice will undoubtedly be recog
iilzcd as a general convenience.'
The Brightwood office transacts con
siderable business In the course of a day
Mail arrives at 7 a in. and 1 and 5 p
m .and departs at 7:30 a. m and 1:10. ind
5:.10 p. m., and it is rarely that the mail
IKJuch is not well filled with mail matter
J n attempt was made by a few of the resi
dents of Brightwod recently, through the
medium of a petition, to secure a fre
delivery system for the place, but the ef
fort has not met with success.
