MOVEMENT TO CITIES
IS COMMON EVIL
The State of Maine's Census Figures
Disclose the Sssae Tread vi Popula
tion as In Sooth Carolina.
Analysis of the census returns for
the State of Maine disclose interest
ing statistics in several particulars.
Most prominent is the fact that a
very large majority of the small towns
show a vast decrease in population
figures, that the cities are responsi
ble for the State's increase and that
the shore counties vie with the back
towns in the discouraging features
of this census.
Six of the shore counties show a
reduction in population, Sagadahoc,
Lincoln. Knox, Waldo. Hancock and
Washington. All save Cumberland
and York that touch on tho coast fell
off and the cities saved these two
from the fate of the others.
In fact the cities made up 50 per
cent of the net gain in the State.
Fifteen show a gain of 24,700 while
five fell off 3,821. reducing the gain
in cities to 20.000. Ellsworth, Hath,
Gardiner, Calais and Eastport drop
ped off and helped cut the figures in
their respective counties.
The gain in Cumberland county is
centered in greater Portland. The
three cities gained 10,626 as follows:
Portland. 8,426, South Portland, 1.200,
and Westbrook, 1,000. As Cumberland
county gained 11,325 it will be seen
that these three cities had the burden
of nain for the entire county.
York county gained 4,600 and Bid.
defor? with 1,000. Saco with 400 and
Snnford with 3,000 occasioned the ad
dition in tb<: figures for that county.
The back counties did remarkably
well, Aroostook having the largest
gain, dm to the development of the
potato industry. Penobscot gained
heavily while Somerset, Piscataquls,
Oxford and Franklin more than held
their own. Kumford Falls and Mexico
exactly made the gain, the loss and
the Rain in Other Oxford towns strik
ing an even balance. Several Frank
lin county towns have developed im
portant industries that occaslonel the
sliubt gain In that county. Milo help
ed Piscataquls with a gain of i.ioo.
due to the recent B. <k A. extension
and a thread mill. Dover and Fox
croft made up the balance.
