A Startling Problem. S. L. Loomis predicted the result of the census of 1880 within 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 IS COMINO TO. 1300 ST, 11111,111111 1310 11:1.2:10,0(10 1112(1 1 17,1 33,000 lO.’lO 13!

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 than 610,000.000. 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 !” TO THE NORTH NORTHWEST —THE— JLi. & JNT.
