Of Chicago's population in 1900, 863,408
were males and 835,167 females; 30,150 were
negroes. 1,209 Chinese, 68 Japanese and 8

CITY DIRECTORY ESTIMATE.

The Chicago city directory for 1902 con-
tains 625,500 names. Based on the federal
ceusus of 1900, this would, according to the
estimates of the publishers, give the city
a population of 1,820,000. They assert, how-
ever, that the last census was much too
small, while that of 1890 was correct. Tak-
ing the latter as a basis, they compute the
present population of Chicago at 2,144,000.
The health department used 1.820,000 as the
basis of the city's vital statistics.
