Some Census Figures.
The population of Missouri by towns and villages Las been issued by the cen sus department and the official figures have just reached us: 1890. 1900. Gain. Maryville 4,037 4,577 540 Tsrkio 1,156 1.901 715 Savannah 1,288 1,880 598 Mound City 1,193 1.681 588 Rock Port 934 1,080 146 Oregon 918 IJXll 81 Weston 1,124 1 ,019 loss 5 It is interesting to look back into the ceosus figures of the past two or three decades, and make corupurisons Mary- ville in 1830 had but .'1,485, and was then and still is the leading city of thin coo gressional district, outside of St. Joseph Tarkio had 1,715 and still holds tec 1 . It. . 1 , . ..-UL . ono piace. vtesionnau i,-rsj anil oc cupied third place, while Savannah had 1,206. Since 1880 Weston s place, third ou the list, has been taken bv Savannah. and Weston has dropped to the foot the class and occupies seventh place, In 1880 Mound Citv occupied seventh piace with a population of 678, and 1900 she takes fourth placo with a population of 1,681, increasing her noiiulation 150 per cent in the past 20 years. Rock Port was the sixth citv in the district in 1880, while today she is the fifth, gaining but one tioirit: in 188') her Iopulat:on was 715. In 880 Oregon had a imputation of 862 and was the fifth citv while todav she is the sixth, losing one oint. It is interesting indeed to note the changes that have taken place in our county during the past 30 years. In 1870 the now largest city in our county had no place in the census enumeration. while where now Maitland exists a corn field of many acres was tn cultivation Oregon in 1870 was the largest city in the county, while today Mound City far in the lead. Maitland was not known until after the census of 18S0 had been taken while today she is the third city in our county. In 1870 there were but six townships in the county. These were Benton, Clay, Dallas, Lewis, Noda way and Union; now there are 12. Dal las included all of Bigelow, Lincoln and parts of now Liberty and Union. Noda way included parts of Hickory, Forbes and Lewis, and Lewis took in parts of Forbes and Forest. Forest township was created io. . 1871 Hickory ..1874 Forbes " 4 ..1871 Bigelow ..1871 Liberty " " ..1874 Lincoln ' " ..1871 Minton - " ..1894 Nodaway ..1841 Lewis " ..1841 Union - ' ..1866 Clay ..1854 Benton ' as now.. 1874 We give our readers a complete table of the population of our county by cities and townships, and in order to ascertain the population of the township outside of the city it will be necessary to deduct the city population, as the census re turns in giving township population in eludes the towns: 1870. 188U. 1890. 1900. Benton- 2,226 2,025 2,337 2.9S0 Mound City.. 678 1,193 1,681 Clay 887 1,399 1.561 1,810 Maitland 484 805 Lewis 4,081 4,087 3,733 2,188 Oregon 824 862 948 1,032 Forest 1.482 Forest City... 676 421 428 632 Bigelow 1,395 1,450 827 Bigelow 193 Forbes 1,009 1,006 1,213 Hickory ...... 933 905 954 Liberty 1,065 1.196 1,094 Lincoln "61 618 742 Minton 893 Nodaway. 2,055 752 702 788 Union 1,118 2.028 1,901 2,082 Craig 541 503 775 Dallas 1,285 Totals... 13,151 15,509 15,469 17,083 The county gained 1,614 in the past 10 years, and but 1,581 in twenty years, andJ3,932 in tbe past 30 years. The cities of the county show an in creas of 1,564 over that of 1890 and 2,618 over that-ef 1880. We think these sta tistics show conclusively that the ten dency has been on the past of our rural population to go to the cities of the county, and especially is this tbe case with the older set of our farmers. In 1890 Mound City was in first place in population; Oregon second: Craig third; Maitland fourth and Forest City fifth. These all retain these positions excepting Maitland which goes to third place and Craig to fourth position. In this connection it might be well for us to give our readers a statement as to the assessable wealth of our county from 1870 to 1900: Real. 82,789,419 3,196,660 4,201,385 Total. 84.056,724 4,117)52 4,89501 627,065 cities of will find Personal. 1870... .81,247,305 1880.... 1,540,620 1890 ... 1,699.141 1900.... 2,025,680 In the development of the OJr county our readers some interesting statistics. We give the assessed value of the town lots from 1883, 1893 and 1900, choosing these dates because of the fact that it was the real beginning of assessing this class of prop erty in Maitland. 188.'!- 1893.

That Oregon has fallen back from first to sec ond place. That Forest has dropped from third place in 1883 to fifth place in 1900. 19X). 8248,145 162,640 98,805 8925 6D.170 quarantine established by the state ward of health. The much discussed state school fund was given an airing in the bouse. These fncts nered sclosed by Democratic tes tiniony: That tbe school fund is a debt. That the Democratic majority does not know whether the school and sem inary certificates of indebtedness aw to be considrred as state bonds. That the dominant party in the house was not disposed to show how these cer tificates of imtebtedress are to be liqui dated, principal and interest, when the state bonds are redeemed within the next two years, and the tax levy for the interest and pinking funds is dis-.-on-ued by constitutional provision. That Mr. Hackey, the Democratic inemlxT vt ho undertook to defend the integrity of the Missouri Democracy and the good name of the stale, ad mitted he knew of no statutory provision for the creation of a school fund or the payment of the interest and and prin cipal of the admitted indebtedness to the school fund. That the majority party not only could not define the status of school cer tificates of indebtedness under the exist ing statutory and constitutional provis ions, but postively refused t-j take any position of a definite character, seeking shelter behind a comimtte the old way of dodging an issue. That either the last Democratic state platform del-berately misstated the facta when it delared that the state debt amounted then only to 82,637,000, or the present Democratic majority falsified when it included over 84,300,000 of cer t ficates of indebtedne-s in the approria tion bill a few days ago and admitted these certificates were part of the state's bonded debt. Senator Bradley introduced a bill pro nioiting tne county court from issuing dramshop licenses when the petition is not signed by a majority of the taxpay ers in the block where the saloon is to be located. Senator Orchard introduced a bill providing thnt when one dramshop peti tion has been filed no other petition shall be required unless a remonstrance is filed against the dramshop. It is i continuous license bill. Senator Drabelle introduced a bill al lowing tne governor to parole prisoners who have been convicted of certain of fenses. A department store bill has reached the senate. It was introduced by Sen ator Farris and applies to cities of 50, 000 inhabitants and over. The bill di vides goods in seventy-six classes and groups of from one to ten classes. A li cense of 85,000 shall ha paid by a mer chant selling more than one class of goods. Tne penalty is a fine of from 8109 to 8500. Nelson of Cooper introduced a bill re quiring applicants for licenses to pub lish notices in a weekly newspaper thirty days before the county court meets at which they shall apply for licenses to sell whisky. The house passed the bill repealing the law making the husband liable for his wife's debts. The clerical force scandal.is likely to come up before the house at any mom ent on the presentation of a resolution tc investigate the charges which young Organ has made against Chief Clerk Tall that he attempted to bribe him to get his father, Representative Organ, who is chairman of the clerical force committee, to agree to increase the force of the house, that certain favorites, or "straw men," imy draw pay from the state. Representative Hawkins introduced a bill increasing the salary of supreme judges from 81,500 to 85,500, Representative Conkling introduced a bill combining the offices of marshal and collector in cities of the fourth class. Senator Orchard has introduced a bill creating the office of circuit attorney. He contends that under tbe present system of prosecuting attorneys,- many incompetent attorneys are selected to prosecute for tbe state. He wants a cir cuit attorney for each circuit, who will be one of the ablest lawyers in the state. In the house a bill has been reported favorably, requiring probate judges to be lawyers. The bill of Representative Duncan, of Buchanan, requiting all couples to be married in the county where the license to wed is secured has causjd consider able comment among the Catholic mem bers of the assembly. Under tbe pro posed lw it is contended that the mat rimonial rights of Catholics are restrict ed. For example, under the terms of Duncan's measure, a Kansas City cou ple, both of the Catholic faith, who de sire to procure a marriage license at some point io the state outside of Kan sas City, would necessarily have to be married at the place where the license is issued, thus, against their own will vio lating a strict regulation of the Catholic church. Catholics are prohibi'ed from marrying without the province of their respective parishes, and a civil ceremony uniting a Catholic couple is not consid ered valid in the eves of the church. Our State Solons. The legislature has completed its fourth week and has sent to the gover nor just one bill for his signature.

Richardson, widow of the murdered Savannah merchant, Frank L. Richardson, at the last minute de cided to waive preliminary hearing on the charge of accessory after the fact to the murder of her husband. After a consultation, it was announ. ced by Prosecuting Attorney Booher that if Mrs. Richardson was not held by Justice Majors he would file information against her and she would be held to the circuit court. In that event Mrs. Richardson would have been obliged to go to jail until a special grand jury was convened the first Monday in March. Under the constitutional amendment adopted at the late general election, abolishing grand juries except when they are especially called, no provision is made for bond of a prisoner held in the manner contemplated in the Rich ardson case. Mrs. Richardson's bond was placed at $1,500 and it was signed by herself, H. K. White of St. Joseph, David Rea and W. S. Wells as sureties. Disss p pointment was freely expressed when the announc-ment was made that Mrs. Richardson had waived preliminary. Unless the murderer is found by the prosecution, Mrs. Richardson cannot be convicted of being an accessory after the fact. In order to establish such charge, the law says it must first be proven thai the accused is in no way related to the murderer. This cannot be done in the Richardson case unless the jury is satisfied as to the murderer's identity. Be lit Style. Don't laugh at fashion. Don't discourage ambition. Don't hinder progress.
