CITY LIMIT CAUSE OF MIX-UP, Boston District Is Fourth, Whllo Bos ton City Is Seventh; Detroit Politic al Division Ranks Fourth, but Metro politan District Takes Sixth Potl tlon Pittsburgh Also Suffers In Rank In Comparison of Population of Cities. What aro tho five most populous "urban communities" In the United States? Tho question sounds stilted, a bul letin from the National. Ocogruphlc society admits, but tho term refers, It Is explained, to something entirely different from "tho flvo.lnrgest cities." For Bome purposes It Is, mora useful to know whore the greatest numbers of city, dwellers are gathered together1 than to know, how many live Inside arbitrary polftlcal divisions.-, Continu ing, tho bullstln says: , , . "If the, term 'cities' Is used loosely, tho, Unted SUtes Is In the strange, position, of having two that rank fourth , and two that aro fifth In size, al though these communities aro of dif ferent magnitude. Tho 'mix-up is duo to that artificial thing,, tho city limit. People in establishing their homes havo.shown a flno disregard for thesol linos except as prompted by con siderations of taxation and havo built on cither side and even astrldoj them. There aro many places whorpi city boundary lines run directly through blocks or along busy streets, j leaving outside, regions as, pppuous 'or , moro populous than thoso Included. Yet when 'the population of tho city' Is being ascertained, only tho nose Inside tho' Imaginary Una are counted. "To clear up, tho difficulty nnd, bring out tho renlly Important fnct where tho greatest concentrations of city dwelling populations org to bo found, ,tho United States census has gathered, statistics not only for city political di visions but also for 'metropolitan dis tricts.' Thcso latter lncludo tho en tire urban communities mnde up of tho big .cities Inside their political lines and nlso the city districts drawn closely arouud them, though outside tho arbitrary boundaries. Iho figures, obtained for thcso population units strikingly alter the rank of the cities. Doston and Detroit. "Tho first three places aro held by New York, Chicago and Phllndolphlu under both systems of enumeration. But while Boston, the political di vision, ranks seventh and Detroit fourth, tho Boston metropolitan dis trict Jumps to fourth place and the Detroit metropolitan district takes the sixth position. Tho population fig ures show that wlth'n a rough 'circle' drawn from the center of Boston with a radius of between ten nnd fifteen miles, there are In thickly-settled com munities 1,772,254 inhabitants. "Ill a slmllur 'clrclo' drawn around Detroit In United States territory, there aro 1,103,153 Inhabitants. If tho entire population of Wnyno county In which Detroit is situated were counted In tho Detroit district, and If tho pop ulations of thQ four counties grouped around Wuyno county, wero added, tho population, would still be less than 1, 400,000, though the average radius would then bo Increased to nearly 30 miles. The IncrcnsO of the radius around Boston to 25 to 30 miles would bring Into tho district between 2,000, 000 and 2,500,000 Inhabitants, for the eastern "end of Massachusetts Is ono of tho most thlckly-populutcd regions In the United States. Pittsburgh District Fifth. "Llko Boston, Pittsburgh suffers In a comparison of tho population of cities by tho fact that the ofllclal city boundaries Inclose a relatively small area, whllo Immediately outside aro numerous populous regions. When tho figures for tho Pittsburgh motro-' polltan district aro used Instead of tho figures for tho political division, Pitts burgh rises from ninth to fifth placo among tho urban communities of the, United States. Its metropolitan (Ms trlct has a population of 1,207,50-1, but within tho Imaginary lines or the city boundaries aro less than half that number of Inhabitants. "Tho mugnltudo of tho omissions of urban territory and populations from some of the cities In thickly-settled portions of tho country aro brought out by canvasses of tho slzablo cities and towns, left to bo separately or ganized, which cluster just outsldo tho city limits. Within ten to fifteen miles of Boston are thrco cities with popu lations between 00,000 and 110,000; six cities of between 40,000 nnd 00,000; 12 cities and towns of between 15,000 nnd 40,000; eight of between 10,000 and . 15,000, nnd n largo number of communities under 10,000 population. Pittsburgh's metropolitan district con tains In addition to Pittsburgh Itself 11 communities with populations rang ing from 10,000 to 50,000, nnd 31 with populations between 6,000 nnd 10,000. Within tho Detroit metropolitan dis trict not Included In tho Detroit city limits nro three towns and villages with populations between 10,000 null 50,000, and thrco numbering between .5,000 nnd 10,000 : Inhabitants."

A WORKER , 1 1 ' I j Thero nro several things wo llko nbout Secretary of tho Treasury Mel lon and chief of these Is that ho never shows signs of trying to get' Into tho Umo-llght. To use a com-! mon expression, ho Is always on the Job nnd sawing wood. That Is ex-' actly tho kind of man needed In the Trcasuryy Department these days, for tho nation has enormous flnanclnl problems to bo solved. Coductlng a treasury department Is not a spectacu lar undertaking nnd if a man under took .to use it for spectacular pur poses wo would feel uneasy. The sen sntlonallst In a national treasury Is as dangerous ns the sensatloal bank-1 cr W0'd rather put our trust else-1 whero. This Inclination of Mr. Mellon to avoid publicity Is nothing now with hlra, and, therefore, It is tho moro impressive. Ho was ono of tho most successful financiers in tho country' boforo ho accepted a, placo in tho, cabinet, and ho attained that buccosb without tho country at largo ever hav' ing heard of him. .Apparently, stick ing closo to tho Job and Bawlnglwood Is a llfottmo habit a habit that gives an Improsslon of stability and depend ability. Another characteristic of Mellon that wo llko Is his advocacy of econ omy in government business. This Is probably also a result of habit, tor fow men becorao rich unless thoy practice economy. Ono of tho first recommendations made by tho new Secretary of tho Treasury was In fav-.l or ot a rigid cutting of national ex penditures as a proprcqulslto to tho reduction of Federal taxos. Probab ly tho most difficult tnBk of govern ment is td keep down expenses, for thoro is constant demand for funds from tho public treasury. It 1b generally understood that Mr. Mollon's policies In conducting tho Treasury Department havo a very im portant factor in bringing Liberty Bonds back toward par. At tho out set of his admlnstratton Mr. Mellon announced a far-sighted program for tho refunding of thp Bhort-dated debt and with this program sucessfully launchod there has been a gradual lm provomont In. tho market position of Liberty Bonds nnd Victory Notes. Decreasing rates of Interest havo al so helped, and have made the Lib erty Bonds relatively better Invest ments, so that holders of the bonds havo found restored values In tho securities thoy have bought to help tho ,' government In tlmo of need. Then too, it 1b understood that Mr. Mellon has bought bondB for tho gov ernment when thoro seomed to be moro on tho market than tho market would absorb. Taking tho surplus off tho market was not only a gain to tho Government but helped '"the holders of bonds. This was not only a fulfillment of the obligation of the Government, which tho previous nd mlnstratlon neglected, but a fulfill ment of an implied promise of the Republican partfc Llko all other holders of Llborty Bonds, wo approve tho Mellon poltey. Bomo days ago Mr. Mellon quietly called down' somo Federal employes whol wero spending a lot of their tlmo and energy trying to formulate pub lic opinion In accordanco with their Ideas. Ho. Intimated that their Bole duty Is to enforco and administer tho law, leaving Congress nnd tho public o make tho law. "Wo llko that policy also. Not bo long ago it looked as though propaganda had becomo tho chief purpose .of Government, nnd, slnco radicalism Is always most act Ivo In propaganda, tho Government became, In atfoct, a teacher of radical ism. Tho fact Is that money paid Into tho treasury by all tho people should not bo used to foster tho Ideas of part of ho people Mr. Mel lon Is right again. In tho fow months ho has been at tho head of tho Treasury Department Mellon has demonstrated a disposi tion to attend closely to his duties and lot his record bo Judged by re sults without continually shouting his accomplishments from tho house tops. If ho will koop that up, other pooplo wlll'do tho shouting, is m FARMER BLOC IN CON GRESS TO PUSH THE "TRUTH IN FABRIC" BILL Senator Capper and Con gressman French, Authors of Bill, to Urge Action. Chicago, Dfjccinbcr 11th ..Moro Shoddy than Virgin Wool Is produc ed In tlio United States, according to statoment of- J, B. Wilson, Secretary oft tho National Shoep and WOo Bur eau of America, with offices at Chicago. Mr. Wilson says that no shoddy in clothing is sold as shoddy, but It is sold under tho samo name as Vir gin Wool, providing tho opportunity and Inducement for manufacturers and distributors to sell shoddy as Virgin Wool In cloth and clothes. Tho Cnppcr-Fronch 'Truth In Fab ric" bill puts a stop to this practice by making it compulsory to identify shoddy: Senator Capper, ono of tho lead ers of tho Farm Bloc In Congress, said that thero are various pieces of legislation In which the Agricultural Bloc Is directly interested, but that there Is probably none mora Import ant than tho 'Truth in Fabric" bill, which tho Agricultural Bloc contem plates pushing vigorously at tho re gular session of Congress. Mr. Wilson stated that a group of representatives of Important organ Izatlons, both stato and natloanl, In cluding tho powerful farm organiza tions, met in Washington and Blgned a petition which was presented to President Harding, bringing ta his attention tho fraud that is now per petrated on tho public as the result of permitting, purchasers to believe shoddy is Virgin Wool, and pointing out to tho President that the power ful Interests that directly or Indirect ly profit, by, shoddy's, counterfeiting Virgin Wool, aro urging upon Cong ress the same old excuses, alleged to bo reasons, for not enacting the Truth in Fabric" bill that were urg ed against tho Puro Food laws by the interests that proflted'by tho Bale of substitute food and drugs as tho genuine. The President, In this petition, Is earnestly requested to excrciso every proper Influence within his provlnco to accomplish the swift enactment of tho Capper-French 'Truth In Fable" bill.
