Excerpt from Appletons' Annual Cyclopedia and Register of Important Events of the Year 1890, Vol. 30: Embracing Political, Military, and Ecclesiastical Affairs; Public Documents; Biography, Statistics, Commerce, Finance, Literature, Science, Agriculture, and Mechanical Industry The most important event of 1890, as affecting the contents of this volume was the United States census, which was taken in June, and is going rapidly through the usual processes of computation and tabulation. Many of the most significant results have been reached already, and a brief summary Of them will be' found in the article United States Census, together with tables convenient for quick reference and a colored chart. In each State article the population of that State by counties is given, with the population in 1880 and the increase or decrease. In. The Census article the tables showing the size and condition of cities are instructive; and in this connection the reader will also be interested in the article Cities, American, Recent Growth of, which we have continued through four volumes of the Annual Cyclopaedia. The present article treats of eighty-four cities in the United States and Canada. For still further informa tion as to the growth of our country, the reader should consult the articles Commerce of the United States, Financial Review of 1890, and United States Finances, those on the discoveries of Tin and Salt, and those on the new States, Idaho and Wyoming, each of which is accompanied by a colored map prepared expressly for this work. There is also a large colored map of Ontario, the most important province of the Dominion of: Canada. As a proper accompaniment to our many scientific articles, we present this year a history and description of the National Academy of Sciences, with notices of all the members and a portrait of each one that has held the office of president. The article on Associations for the Advancement Of Science is full as usual, with portraits Of the British and American presidents. Other records Of scientific progress may be found in the articles on Astronomy, Chemistry, Metal lurgy, Meteorology, Physics, and Physiology - all prepared by experts, and making an almost complete story of the year's attainments - while the arti cles Koch, Robert, and Tuberculous Diseases tell all that is known of the scientific achievement that excited the deepest popular interest the world over.
