GROWTH OF THE NATION
SOME OP THE IJTDICATIOKS OP THE
Increase of Farm Population Keeps
Closely to That of the
Of the 75.O00.O00, (more or less; the ex
act number Is not yet known, even to the
IMrector of the Census) Inhabitants of the
"Dnlted States, 19,070,954 dwell In cities
of 25,000 or more population. There are

represents an agricultural population of
28,921,380. This leaves 26,000,000 or there
abouts In villages and towns of less than
In 1S80 there -were 75 cities In the United
States with a population of 25,000 or more,
aggregating 9,917,822; In 1890 there were
124 cities, with 25,000 population or more,
aggregating 14,834,691, and this year there
are 1C1 cities -with a population of 25,009 or
more, making a total of 19,C70,984. This
shows an increase of 49.57 per cent In the
urban population during the first decade,
and 3L92 per cent during the second dec
ade. In other -words, the city population
of the "United States has not increased so
rapidly during the last 10 years as it did
during the previous 10 years. The fact
surprises the statisticians. Some cities,
like Omaha and Sioux City, sprang up like
mushrooms between 1880 and 1890, but
were unable to sustain their population
durimr the hard times, and in 1893 began
to fall back. Others, like Memphis, did
not wake up until 1890, and then spread
like the traditional banyan tree.
The cities which show the greatest In
crease of population during the last 10
years and their percentage of Increase
arc as follows:
per cent-I per cent.
South Omaha..222.51iL.os Angeles 103.35

Atlantic City...ll3.S4 Eeattle S8.S2
Passaic. X. J... 113.211 Spokane ... 84.96
Memphis is the fastest-growing town in
the South. Twenty years ago, -when the
10th census was taken. Seattle, Superior
City and South Omaha did not exist
Spokane had a population of 330 people,
Butte had 3363, Portland. Or., 17.000; East
St Louis. 9W0. and Los Angeles. 11.030.
The only cities that have fallen oft In
population during the last 10 years are
the following: .
oer'eenti i cent
Trov. X. Y O.uOJSioux City 12.41
Bay City, Mich .0.75 Omaha 25.9S
Albany O.SllLincoln 27.17
With the exception of Albany and Troy
this decrease is more apparent than ac
tual, and Is the result of the census frauds
committed in 1890, where there was a
great rivalry between neighboring com
munities, and they are now suffering the
penalty. It is significant that there has
been no remonstrance or complaint in
many of the cities named, except Al
bany, and an Investigation lias satisfied
everybody there that the original enumer
ation was accurate. Lincoln, Onriha and
Sioux City, which have suffered the worst,
have not said a -word.
Several cities that appear in the list of
those that have increased complain that
they -were not credited with their full pop
dilation: th;'.t errors were made; that
-whole blocks -were overlooked; that a con
Biderable percentage of the population
-was out "of town on the day of the enu
meration, and have taken the trouble in
several cases to make a police census,
but in no case has the origiml count
been impeached to a degree .sufficient to
Experts expected that the urban popu
lation would i-how an enormous Increase
during the last 10 years,. It Is the popu
lar impression that most of the Immi
grants from foreign countries settle in the
cities: that the attractions of city ljfe
draw people from the villages to work
in the shops and factories, and that the
boys and girls drift from the farms to the
centers of population to avail themselves
of the larger opportunities offered to the
ambitious. But this impression seems to
he exaggerated. The farm population ha
increased during the last 10 years in about
the same proportion as that of the cities,
al though the number of mechanical In
dustries employing labor has nearly
doubled. In 1S90, 250,000 manufacturing
establishments were reported; this year
the number is -07,221.

that have 25,003 or more population, with

PORTLAND, Oct 15. (To the Editor.
Some discussion has recently taken place
through your columns In regard to the
wisdom of the present game law. My
attention was attracted by the article
which appeared In today's issue of The
Oregonian, entitled "Wild Ducks Come
High." and so far as the same applies
to ducks, I' have tio criticisms to make.
I do, however, take Issue with that por
tions refers to upland birds.
The article states In effect that It
makes no difference to the bird whether
it is killed by a "sportsman" or a "far
mer boy" or whether It is sold or given
away, and that the "farmer boy" should
be allowed to kill for the market when
the "city feller" kills two or
three times the limit In a day, and
further, that it should be lawful to fell
upland birds to any who choose to pur
chase. Perhaps it makes no difference to the
bird by whom it is killed. It does, how
ever, concern the people wh?n those
which are killed are not consumed, but
permitted toVleeay in the markets of the
city of Portland as was the case under
the law permitting the sale thereof.
I Tiave hunted upland birds for sev
eral seasons in most all parts of the
WUJamette Valley. My experience and
observations have been that It is not a
common thing for a man to Tdll the limit
consisting of 15 birds In a single day
whether "city feller' 'or "farmer boy,"
reports to the contrary notwithstanding.
The fact is, when the law permitted per
sons to shoot upland birds for the mar
ket those who were engaged in it us
ually sent the accumulation of three or
four days previous, so that the birds were
practically unfit for use when they ar
rived at the market
The "farmer boy" did not shoot birds
for the market for the greater part of
his, time was more profitably employed.
It was the "pot hunter" n-ho a as re
sponsible for the conditions whlcn made
It neccessary to prohibit killing upland
birds for the market.
If it Is such a smiple matter to kill
upland birds as hinted in the article re-
I ferred to, it should be unnecessary to
i DUJ tnem. l oeneve ine present law
encourages true sportsmanship. Those
who are willing to admit that they have
no friends who shoot and are either too
lazy or incompetent themselves, have
no right to the delicacy.
In my opinion, the only change that
should be made In the present game law
so far, as It pertains to upland birds Is
to shorten the closed season at least 15
days. WILLIAM W. BANKS.

I NO BREAK IN SOLID SOUTH
ELECTORAL VOTE BPECTEO TO
BE IN PAYOR OF BRYAN.
People Are Democrats by Tradltioa
and Take Little Account of Pres
ent Prosperous Conditions.
WASHINGTON, Oct; 11. There is not
the least possibility of any break occur
ring In the solid South, and there has
not been for many years. With" the ex
ception of Kentucky and West Virginia,
border states, no Southern State has given
an electoral vote for a Republican candi
date since 1876, and the three sta'tes
which were at that time counted for the
Republican candidate were then claimed
and are still claimed to have voted for
the Democracy. It Is true that the Re
publicans and Populists of North Caro
lina were successful on a fusion issue, and
secured a Republican Senator. Kentucky
has also elected a Republican Senator.
West Virginia has swung into the Repub
lican line,, but it is not considered a part
of the solid South. " '
It is considered rather curious that this
state, of affairs should exist In view of
the fact that the South is so prosperous
under the Republican policies, and Is so
DICK CROKER "I DIDN'T THROW THAT ICES'
much Interested In other things that the
Reoublican party stands for at the pres
ent time. Yet no one predicts with any
degree of confidence a single break In the
South this year, -save that West Vir
ginia may go Republican, and that there
is a possibility that Kentucky may again
cast its vote for the Republican candi
date. A story told by a Republican the other
day. Illustrates the condition In the
South as well as anything that has been
heard from that section. He was visit
ing a prominent man in Virginia, a man
who devotes himself to stockralslng, and
has a very large ranch in the Old Do
minion. Just now the raising of stock
has proven very profitable. This par
ticular man has a contract for selling 1000
head of cattle, to b6 delivered at the rail
road, and sent by way of Chesapeake
Eay, to England. Most of these cattle
are to be shipped on to South Africa for
the British Army. This man said his
cattle would average from 1400 to 1000
each in Weight, and that he would receive
5i cents per pound for the cattle on the
hoof. It will be seen that this is a
very high price, and brings the value of
each head up to approximately ?S0 each.
The profits at such a price are simply
enormous. This ranchman was aked if
this price was what he usually obtained,
and he said It was at present, although
five or six years ago he sold a large-number
of cattle at $1 50 per hundred.
Of course, the man with whom he was
talking supposed that under those con
ditions the .stockralser would naturally
be a Republican, and anxious for the
success of the Republican policies which
had so increased his wealth in the last
four years. But not so. It appears that'
he 4s at the head of the Democratic or
ganization of his particular section, and
In talking to stockralsers like himself a
short time ago, he said it was true that
better prices prevailed now for cat
tle than ever before, and that they were
enjoying an era of prosperity that they
had never had in the past Yet, he said,
it was "necessary to vote the Democratic
ticket to preserve the traditions of the
county and state, and to keep it true to
the iarty to which the state had been
loyal for many years In the past."
When this sort of a condition Is con
sidered, It is absurd to think of carrying
any of the Southern States. By tradition
the people are Democrats. Democracy
stands for respectability in the South.
Men who leave the Democratic party are
ostracised and are regarded as men who
place "material prosperity" above their
"honor." There is no use to hope for a
break In the solid South as long as these
WHAT CREDIT IS DOE ROGERS?

Capitol Building Bill.
EUGENE, Or., Oct. 8. (To the Editor.)
In The Oregonlan last Friday your staff
correspondent at Seattle points out that
Governor John 'R. Rogers Is generally
credited with the reduction of the state
debt, adding that the Republican reply
to the claims of Governor Rogers Is that
"the general prosperity made these things
During Cleveland's Admlnstratlon tax
paying was not the rule in the state
of Washington, and It became customary
for the Legislature to rebate the pen
alties and grant further time, thus en
couraging the people to delays and
thereby leaving several large annual de
linquent rolls an asset, as It wap called
by the Supreme Court of the state when
adjudicating the validity of county in
debtedness. In 1897 the Legislature passed a law,
not only eliminating all penalties and
costs against tho delinquent taxpayer,
but reducing the rate of interest on the
taxes, during the whole delinquency, to
6 per cent, per annum, providing the
taxes were paid within a certain time.
Contrary to my expectations good times
came with McKlnley's election, and the
taxes were paid upon all the lands which
weie deemed worth the amount due. A
large tide land, fund hitherto kept
separate was turned Into and made a
part of the general fund. During the
period of depression (Cleveland's term),
there were few sales of state lands In
Washington. Since that time "the Land
Commissioners' office at Olympla has
been a busy place, and thereby large
sums have been realized to reduce the
Even a comparison, of assets will not
show the whole truth, because In many,
If not most cases, where taxes were not
paid In 1897 the land is not worth -the
delinquent tax, and the laws of Wash
ington, recognizing the futility of trying
to collect the whole amount, provide

such sum as a court may determine.
Through the energy of Land Commis
sioner Bridges, who despises Governor
Rogers, there will be little land of value
for the next state administration to

to be the architect himself. He said,

foundation laid under Governor McGraw,
or according to the plans which had been
accepted by Governor McGraw, under
authority of the State Legislature, giving
reasons galore, but omitting the true
one Jealousy of Governor McGraw.
The arrogance of Governor Rogers is
best illustrated by the propositions made
to Thurston County a few dayB before
the meeting of the last Legislature.
"You people want a capltol building.
You have a courthouse, which, with a
small addition on one side of it, will do
for a capltol building. Now, I will sup
port it, and a bill can be passed during
this session to purchase your court
house and put up a wing to it And I,
Emperor Rogers, further say that if you
don't accept this proposition you won't
The foregoing, though Included within
quotation marks, are not the exact words
of his Excellency. The emphasis, the
autocratic tone, and some of the force-'
ful words he would use are here omitted.
At a meeting, called to consider it, the
proposition was rejected. True to his
threat, the Governor vetoed a bill, limit
ing the cost of the building to the pro
ceeds to be derived from sale of the
lands, given by the United States Gov
ernment for that purpose. If the bill
had been signed the State of Washington
would have been free from any liability
for Its construction. The building would,
If erected, be upon the hated McGraw
foundation, and Bridges was named by
the Legislature as one of the capltol
Commissioners. The figures, given by
your correspondent include as a part
of the state debt all the money ad
vanced for public buildings and which
Is repaid to the state as the lands do
nated by the general government are
Governor Rogers credits the good times
in the United States to the gold ob
tained from Klondike and Alaskan
mines. Why not credit some of the pros
perity of the state nearest those mines
to the same source, Instead of claiming
it all himself?
In wnat respect does Governor Rogers
model after Jefferson or Lincoln? Does
he affect their simplicity In manner and
dress? And, pray, when did either hold
up bills of individual members of a''
Legislature or Congress until spiteful
vetoes were sustained?
Think of Jefferson, as Governor of
Virginia, dictating to the people of Rich
mond "Your courthouse for a state capl
tol building or I will veto"; Lincoln to
Congress, "I will be the architect of all
public buildings during -my term." The
sage of Puyallup even quotes ' Franklin.
There can be no contrast where there Is
no resemblance. DANIEL GABY.

The Riotons Wheelmen at Turner.
TURNER, Or., Oct. 13, 1000. tTo tho Edi
tor.) Not lone aso a resident of Turner built
him a sidewalk, and In doing so raised it
about eleht Inches above the adjoining walks.
A delegation ot, tho wheelmen called upon him
and requested him to lower his walk on a
lovel with tho adjoining one., The request was
refused, and durlns the succecdlns night the
walk In some manner mysteriously disap
peared., and now the case Is up to the author
ities. The-above clipping contains some error.
The "raise" in the walk" was only about
three Inches. There was no "delegation
of wheelmen," and no "request." It was
a few Irresponsible young fellows, -who
had no whit of property Interest In the
walk, or the town; no rights in the prem
ises whatever, except the use of a public

ed; using some hardly printable lan
guage, and threatening to tear the walk
down. Naturally the "resident" over 70
years old refused; and he "stood off" the
young chaps, and they finally went away.
That evening, when the old man and
wife had extinguished their lamp to re
tire for the night the mob of "wheel
men" came; and' went to work tearing up
the. walk. But the old oeople went out
with lights, and finding the crowd too
strong for them, they identified eight or
ten of the mob, and then retired into their
house. ' The riotors tore up the walk,
fixed it to the notion, and left.

the authorities;" But are "the authori

UNNECESSARY AND DANGEROUS
Snro-icnl Operations for Cure of Piles
Discarded by Best Medical
A prominent official surgeon says: It Is
,tho duty of every surgeon to avoid an
operation, if possible to cure In any other
way. This Is especially true In the treat
ment of piles and rectal troubles because
such operations are attended with excru
ciating pain and serious danger to life by
collapse of the nervous system.
Furthermore, operations for piles are of
ten unsuccessful and always very ex
pensive. The most advanced physicians now rise
and recommend tho use of astringents,
combined with healing oils of vegetable
extraction, and administered in supposi
tory form. The most widely used and best
known remedy of this character Is the
Pyramid Pile Cure, sold by druggists
everywhere. The pile cure contains no
cocaine, no opiate, no poisonous drug
whatever, and a single 50-cent package
In some Instances has cured cases of
several years' standing.
The harmless acids, astringents and oils
contained in the Pyramid Pile Cure cause
the blood vessels and congested veins to
contract to a natural condition, the little
tumors are absorbed and the cure Is made
without pain, Inconvenience or detention
from dally occupation.
Being In suppository form It can be car
ried in the pocket, always ready for use.
Ointments, salves and pills sometimes
relieve piles, but they do not cure.
The safest and surest way to cure any
form of piles, itching,, bleeding or pro
truding, is to use Pyramid Pile Cure.
