POPULATION OF CITIES HAVING 25,000 INHABITANTS OR MORE

IN 1900.
The following statistics, prepared under the direction of William C. Hunt, chief
statistician for population of the Census Bureau, gives the population of the 159 cities
having 25,000_inhabitants or more in 1900, according to the official count of the re-
turns of the Twelfth Census, taken as of June 1. 1900. The 159 cities combined have
a population in 1900 of 19,694,625, as compared with a population for the same cities
of 14,855,489 in 1890, and of 9,933,927 in 1880. The absolute increase in the population
of these cities from 1890 to 1900 was 4,839,136, or 82,426 less than the absolute in-
crease from 1880 to 1890, when it was 4,921,562. The percentage of increase in popula-
tion of the 159 cities from 1890 to 1900 was 32.5, as against 49.5 from 1880 to 1890.
In 1880 there were but twenty cities which contained more than 100,000 inhabitants,
but in 1890 this number had increased to twenty-eight, and in 1900 to thirty-eight.
In 1900 there are seventy-eight cities of 50,000 inhabitants or more as compared with
fifty-eight in 1890 and thirty-five in 1880. The combined population in 1900 of the nine-
teen cities of the first class is 11,795, 809, as against a population in 1890 of 8,879,105,
representing an increase during the ten years of 2,916,704, or 32.8 per cent. The same
cities showed an increase from 1880 to 1890 of 2,567,452, or 40.6 per cent. The nineteen
cities of the first class comprise New-York, which, with more than 3,000,000 in-
habitants, properly stands by itself; two cities, Chicago and Philadelphia, each of
which has a population in excess of 1,000,000; three cities, St. Louis, Boston and Bal-
timore, which have a population of 500,000 each; five cities, Cleveland, Buffalo, San
Francisco, Cincinnati and Pittsburg, which have a population of between 300,000 and
400,000 each; and eight cities, New-Orleans, Detroit, Milwaukee, Washington, Newark,
Jersey City, Louisville and Minneapolis, which have a population of between 200,000
and 300,000 each. The nineteen cities of the second class have a combined population
in 1900 of 2,412,538, and show an increase of 33.3 per cent from 1890 to 1900, as
against an increase of 79.2 per cent from 1880 to 1890. The forty cities of the third
class have a combined population in 1900 of 2,709,338, as against a population in 1890
of 2,067,169, which is equivalent to an increase during the decade of 31 per cent, as
compared with an increase of 51 per cent during the preceding ten years. The eighty-
one cities of the fourth class have a combined population in 1900 of 2,776,940, having
gained since 1890 676,381 in number, or 32.2 per cent, as against an increase of 68.7
per cent from 1880 to 1890.

THE AMERICAN FLAG OR NATIONAL ENSIGN. The official National ensign contains 45 stars in a blue field, arranged in 6 rows the 1st, 3d and 5th rows having 8 stars each, and the others having 7 stars each: The garrison flag of the Army is made of bunting, 36 feet fly and 20 feet hoist; thirteen stripes, and in the upper quarter, next the staff, is the field or "union" of stars, * equal to the number of states, 'on blue field, over one-third length of the fag, extending to the lower edge of 'the fourth red stripe from the top. The storm Vag is 20 feet by 10 feet, and the recruiting flag 9 feet 9 inches by 4 feet 4 inches. The

"American Jack" 'is the "union" of the fag, its name originating with the "union” of the English flag at the blending of St. Andrew's Saltier with St. George's Cross. The narrow pennant” or “whip” has the union composed of thirteen white stars in horizontal line on a blue field, one-fourth the length of the pennant, the remaining three-fourths of a red and a white stripe, each of the same breadth at any part of the taper, with the red uppermost. The Revenue Marine Service flag, created by Act of Congress, March 2, 1799, was originally prescribed to consist of sixteen perpendicular stripes, alternate red and white, the union of the ensign bearing the arms of the United States in dark blue on a white field.”

The sixteen stripes represented the number of States which had been admitted to the Union at that time, and no change has been made sinre. Prior to 1871 it hore an eagle in the union of the pennant, which was then substituted by thirteen blue stars in a white field, but the eagle and stars are still retained in the flag. June 14, the anniversary of the adoption of the Stars and Stripes," is celebrated as Flag Day in many of the States, especially by the children of the public schools.
