MENACE TO NATIONAL LIFE Haee Snlclde Threaten Serloue Con- dltlon' In England Thirty Year Hence. An American consular report ays: Kng land's birth rate Is declining. It touched Its highest point ince registration began In ltif. in 1374. Today it 1 at it lowest. The children of the most prolific mothers those of 1?7S are the moat unproductive mother. The reason assigned for the frightful decline Is "tho decay of the maternal Instinct." Only 75 pet- cent as many little one ee the light now, or re main In it, as suw It thirty years ago. No one factor, however, can account for the entire falling off. The fact 1 there are many cauae. Nota bly among the moat prominent ia the ad vanced age at which persons marry and the fact that a great many never marry. Pre vious to 187H the marriage rate wa HI to ITS per 1,000. Today It la UH. The claim made for year by leading economists that population wa supposod to vary with the food supply I doubled. It falls to hold good In Kngland. fur at no time in the past wa food so cheap or so abundant as It is today. i'ossimy, saya one writer, rent, the rates and taxes have more to do with the queatloii than ha the price of wheat." The fact of the matter Is, the question Is beyond the best men In the?niplre. It baf fles everybody from the .umblert to the highest. In the fight for first place that is on, It means, or may mean, a great deal to England whether her birth rate I small or large. A short crop of little ones In 1905 and In each succeeding year means a short crop of men for the army, navy, mills, shops, farm, nli i pa. factories and colonies of England Iwenty-flve or thirty years hence.
