POPULATION AND FINANCIAL CONDITION OF THE STATES AND TERRITORIES, 1890. The following tabular exhibit gives in a concise form the official

statistics for the last census year. It has been announced that they are subject to revision in the final census volumes, but as each statement given was issued over the signature of a responsible officer, it is not likely that any important changes will be made.

Population.-- New York State has the largest population among the States and Territories, the next in order being Pennsylvania,
Illinois, and Ohio.

Assessed Valuation.-New York heads the list with more than 3% billions, Pennsylvania coming next with 2% billions, followed by
Massachusetts, Ohio, and California.

State Receipts. - The States showing the largest amounts of gross State receipts (considering the State as a unit in each case) are
New York, Massachusetts, and California, all over $10,000,000. Pennsylvania takes fourth place with 8% millions.

State Expenditures.-The four States mentioned as standing highest in the matter of receipts hold the same relative rank in expenditures.

Bonded Debt.-Virginia has the largest bonded debt, and is closely followed by Massachusetts, the District of Columbia coming next in order, then Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Maryland, and Georgia. The first two named have a bonded debt of nearly 30 millions each; the remainder stand between 10 and 20 millions.

Floating Debt.-Virginia also stands first in floating debt (7millions). Arkansas (6% millions), Michigan (544 millions), and Louisiana (44 millions), are the next three in rank under this heading.

Sinking Fund.-Massachusetts has, by far, the largest sinking fund (21 millions). Pennsylvania, Virginia, and New York have each between 5 and 10 millions in reserve. It must be understood that,

so far in this summary, States are considered as units, not including the accounts of counties, cities, and other civil divisions.

Aggregate of County Debt.-Leaving out New York, in which the city and county are co-extensive, the largest aggregates of county
debts are given for Kansas (14% millions), Illinois (11 millions), and Missouri (10% millions). These aggregates represent the total debt of
counties, less sinking fund.

There is no necessity to point out any particular instances as shown in the last two columns of the tabular exhibit. When the totals
were made up for the different States a considerable number of municipalities were yet to be heard from.
