The death rate from this cause shows a noticeable de crease as compared with 11116, when It was 1.19.4 per 100,(K0. There have been fluctuations from year lo year, lint In general there ha been a marked Increase sine? 111, the earliest year foe which the niiinial mortality statis tics were published, when the rate for heart disease wa only 123.1 per 100, tsXi. Pnenmopl (Including hroncho-pneti-mollis) was responsible for 112.841 deaths, or 140.8 per 100.000. Tills rste, alihoiiKh much lower than that for 1!k (180..1) or for several succeeding years, la higher than that for any year during the period 1H081016. The low est recorded rate for pneumonia wa 127 per 100.000 In 1014. The mortal-, Ity from this disease ha fluctuated considerably front year lo year since 11X10, the general tendency having been downward until 1014 and apward from 1014 to 11117. Tnbcrcnhwla lu Irs various forms ninsed 1IO,'.'S3 dentin, of which U7.047 were due to tuberculosis ot the Inngs. The tleath rate from all forms of lu-In-rculosls was Vhl.4 per 100,000, and fiiim tuberciilouls of the lungs 128.0. The rate from tuberculosis of all forms 'leclliicd continuously from 200.7 per 100.IXNI In U04 to 141.fi per 100,000 In 1010. the decrease amounting to nearly M0 per cent ; but for 1917 an In crease Is shown. Until 101 more deaths were due to tuberculosis than lo any other single cause, but In that vear and during the period 1014-lfll" i lie mortality from tuberculosis was less than that from heart diseases, and In 1017 It fell below tliat from pnen nionla ui so. Cancer Fatalities Greater. tncer and oilier malignant tumors i-aiised 61,4.12 deaths, of which number ;:i.413. or 38 per cent, resulted from cancer of the stomach and liver. The Tale from cancer lias risen from M ,mt 100.000 In 1UO0 to 81. Hi 1017. The Increase ha uot lieen continu ous, there having been three years 11KHI. 1011 and 1917 which shovil decline a compared with Ihe years Immediately preceding. Tl decrease In 15)17, as compared with 1916. how ever, wa very slight from 81.8 to vi. a It should he borne In tnliid that at least a part of the Increase In Hie death rate from cancer may lie nppnr- nt rather than real, being due to a grenter degree of acenrncy In diagno sis nnd to greater cure on the part of physicians In making report to regis trillion officials. Influenxn was responsible for 12.074 .'cnths. or 17.2. per 100,000. This rate Is the highest "shown for any epldoml.o disease In 1017. but Is much lower than the corresponding one for the preced ing yeiir, 20.4 per 100,000. The Influ enxa rate, which fluctuates grcntly, was highest tn 1001. when It stood nt 82.2, than In any suhscqnent year prior to the occurrence of the recent epidemic. Next to that for Influents, the high est rate appearing for any epidemic disease In 1917 was for tllptherla, 14.5 per 100,000, representing 12,458 deaths. The; rate from this disease was somo whnt higher In 1017 than in the preced ing year, when It stood at 14.5 per 100,000. . . Bronchitis caused 12,811 denths, or 10.8 per 100,000. This rste Is lower than ' that for any preceding year ex cept 1016, when It was 16.0. The pro portional decline from 1000, for which year the bronchitis rate was 45.7, to 1017, amounting to 04 per cent, was greater than that shown for any other important cause of death. Typhoid. Fever resulted In 10,118 deaths, or 13.4 per 100,000.
