A Startling Problem.
S. L. Loomis predicted the result of
the census of 1880 within iS.ooo of
the actual figures. He estimates that
the population of this country in 1S00
will feach 67,250,000. an increase
of more than thirty per cent. I'o allow
a reasonable margin for possible error
we may place the total at 67,000,000,
and the decennial increase at 50 per
cent. Should this ratio of increase
continue at the end of each decade
during the next 100 years will be rep
resented by the following figures, the
progressive immensity of which
will surprise most people and perhaps
cause them to wonder
WllATTlllSWOKI.il IS COMINO TO.

People of a speculative turn of mind
may well ask themselves what is to be
done with so enormous a population,
how arc they to be supported, and
many other ([ucsiions that, though
purely speculative now, may assume
avital importance before the close of
the next century. The total area of
the United States, including Alaska, is
3,580,242 square miles, or 2 271,354,
880 acres. This area necessarily in
cludes the lakes, rivers and unhabit
able mountains and deserts, yet wc
find that there will be an average of
more than 21, persons to each acre of
our total area when the enumerators
enter upon their duties too years hence
The exact figures are 2,504.
According to \Ir. I.oomis, the ratio
of increase of population by births over
death, although much less than it was
a century since, is at present 2 01 per
cent, per annum, or 20.1 each ten
years. Accepting, for convenience,
the ratio of decennial increase as 20
per-cent, and casting aside all accre
tion Irom immigration, we find that in
1990 oer total population will be more
Whether these figures are accepted
as reasonably trustworthy or rejected as
gross exaggeration, the fact still rc
mains that the natural and inevitable
increase of the population, not alone
of our own country, but of the whole
world, presents a problem that may
well engage the thoughtful mind.
Johnstown, Pa.. Aug. 20.—The
Tribune to-night has the following in
regard to the proposed removal of the
state force : "There is a universal feel
ing in this community that the state
could do no greater act of injustice
to the people of this valley than to
withdraw its force at this time. Scarce
ly a day passes that bodies are not
recovered and many streets, cellars and
alleys and lots are covered four or five
feet deep with disease-breeding filth
remaining to be cleaned away. What
is to do it ? The people here have
not the means. Arc they to be left in
their present helpless and miserable
condition ? Surely the commonwealth
of Pennsylvania cannot afford to treat
any ot her children in such a way !”
