office has notified registers and receivers
that his construction of the - new land
law is that no one who already owns

The Astorian is mistaken. An enn nirv
at The Dalles land office elicits the fact
that no such orders have, been received
here. Nor could'there be for the statute
is sufficiently plain, on the subject. As
the law stands, no man owning ''more

an affidavit to that effect at the time of
making his application.

Population continues steadily to 'drift
to the cities. According to a bulletin
issued by the census office, giving the
population of the cities in the countrv
containing 8,000 . inhabitants or more,
the total urban population in 1880 was
18,235,670 or 29.12 per cent, of the popu
lation, as against an urban population of
11.318.547 nr 22.R7 nor fnt in ISQft
The proportion of urban population has
increased irraduallv during the -oast cen
tury from 3.35 up to 29.12 per cent., or
from one-thirtieth up to nearly one-third
of the total population. The increase
was Quite reeular from the besinniner nn
to 1880, while from 1880 to 1890 it made
a leap of 22.57 up to 29.12 per cent.
The numberof cities having a popula
tion of more than 8.000 infrpustvl from R
in 1700 to 280 in 1880, whence it leaped
to 443 in 1890. In 1880 there was but
one city, JNew York, which had a popu
lation in excess of 1.000.000. In 1890
there were three. New York. Chicaaro
and Philadelphia. In 1870 there were
but fourteen cities, each containing more
