NEW TORK. May 3-The publication
of a aUtement attributed to a Brooklyn
policeman the other day to the effect that
while he waa making an arrest In a tene
ment house In the neighborhood of Second
avenue and Twelfth street. Brooklyn, he
found a three-story house In which 2fi0
persons were domiciled, stirred tip the
tenement house department, the police and
the newspaper men. After a long hunt
the house waa found and diligent Inquiries
by the tenement house Inspectora, the
police and the reporters disclosed that
at the most there were only thirty-five
persons living there, most of them Toles
working In a nearby mill. No official
action waa needed on the ground of over
congested population and there were no
unusual facta warranting newspaper notice.
The story, however, stirred tip consid
erable discussion as to crowded tenements
and the most densely populated blocks
to be found In New Tork. It started the
No two authorities questioned agreed
exactly aa to which blocks In New York
had the largest number of residents: neither
did they agree as to the block which was
most crowded. It waa no surprise to learn
that no other borough of the Ity had
wrested the palm In the matter from Man
hattan. Census Tells Tart nf dAry.
There seems to be no record available
as to the tenement which has the largest
population or the tenement which has the
greatest number of residents to the square
root. When It comes to city blocks the cen
sus figures of 1906 tell something of the
story, but only a part.
The 'tenement house department has not
developed the statistics fully, and neither
has the health department nor any of the
philanthropic societies which work among
the poor. More or less data concern'ng
crowded conditions are gathered by these
various bodies, but tf you want to know
which block In Manhattan has the largest
population, you will have to examine the
researches of Harold M. Finley, one of
rrof. Bailey s boys from Tale, who cornea
down here every year and looks over New
York's slums and other things of Interest.
Tn a recent Issue of Federation, a quar
terly publication of the Federation of
Churches and Christian organisations In
New York City, there Is a ccmpllatlon by
Mr. Finley that seems to settle the ques
tion. It is a comparative study of popula
tions In New Tork's most crowded blocks.
The figures produced, all baaed upon sen
sus reports, supply the exact Information.
Moat Popalooa Blocks.
The block with the largest population In
Manhattan Is not on tho east side nt all.
contrary to the general belief. It Is on the
west side and Is bounded by Amsterdam
and West End avenuea and Sixty-first and
Stxty-aecond streeta. The population of the
block, according to the 105 cenaus. was
.173. It contain 5,392 acrea. making the
density of population 1.145 to the acre.
In 1900 the most populous block in the
city was that bounded by Second and Third
streets and Avenuea B and C. It had a
population of 4,106. In 1906 it had a popula
tion of 8.036, but It fell to second place on
the list of populous blocks. Its ratio of In
habitants to the acre was 1,104.
There are three other blocks tn the city
which In 1905 had mors that 4.100 residents.
The third on the list Is that bounded by
One Hundred an Twelfth and One Hun
dred and Thirteenth streets and First and
Second avenuea. Little Italy. It haa a
population of 4,325 and a ratio of 961 In
habitants to the acre.
The fourth on the list is the block
bounded by Fifth "and Sixth streets and
Avenues C and D. It has a population of
4.190 and a ratio of 987 to the acre. The
fifth of the blocks having, more that 4,100
residents is bounded by Catherine, Madi
son, Market and Henry streeta Its popula
tion is 4,137 with a ratio of 945 to the acre.
Fifty-One ia List.
Mr. Finley has found that altogether
there were in 1905 fifty-one blocks in Man
hattan that had more than i.OK) inhabitants
Of these twelve have a density of popula
tion of more than 1,100 to the acre. Most
of these blocks have an area of from two
to four acres.
The block bounded by Cherry, Jefferson,
Monroe and Rutgers streeta la the most
crowded In New York. Its population it.
K05 waa 3,Sffi, making It the tenth on the
list of population. It haa, however, 1,454
Inhabitants to the acre, against 1.C00 In 1900.
The next most crowded block Is that
bounded by Cherry, ctlnton, Monroe anl J
Jefferson streeta lta density of population j
is 1.422 to the acre. The third on the list la
bounded by Forsyth, Houston, Chrystle j
and Stanton streets, with 1,301 inhabitants I
to the acre.
The fourth Is bounded by Clinton, Stan
ton, Suffolk and Riverton streets with i
density of 1.31. and the fifth la bounded by 1
Rlvington, Sheriff. Ftanton and Willctt !
streeta. The block having the largest pop- I
uiatlon in the city, that on the upper west !
ride. Is tenth en the list of density, the j
figures being 1,145. Of the twelve blocks j
with a density of more than 1.1C0 to the
acre eleven are on the lower east s'-do.
Increase In Five Years.
Mr. Finley points out that the combined j
population of the fifty-one blocks In th j
city have more than J"X population each I
1th 132. SSI In 1100, with an average of 2.605 '
to the block. Five years later the popula- i
tion in these same blocka had increased
to 177, 958, on by more than 45,000, with a '
block average of 3,490, an average (ncreaae
by the block of 84.
This waa an increase in five years of 34 i
per a nt in the most crowded part of Man- ,
hattan. In the same time the entire ,
borough of Manhattan Increased only It i
per cent. Commenting on these figures j
and percentages. Mr. Finley aaya:
'They mean that during these five years
the percentage of increase in blocka al-
ready woefully overcrowded waa more than
double that of the total of the borough. !
They mean, further, that 17 per cent of the I
total lncreaae of population In the borough i
of Manhattan between the years 19U) and
1905 is constituted of the Increase of these
iifty-one blocka alone."
Mr. Finley has made some study of the
alien population of the fifty-one blocks
and be deduces the rule that "the greater
lha density the greater the alien per
centage." The one etceptlon to thia rule la
the UuuO block on the Weat Side, where
practically every one of the population la a j
negro and the only aliena are from the
Weat Indies. V
In apeaklng ot what a population of
S.OU0 to a block means, Mr. Finley says:
"Out in the big, open middle weat when
towns without court houaoa approach the
3.000 mark they begin to plan county seat
fights. A live town of this aise In Iowa or
Missouri boaata of a city council, electric
light plant, fir department, women's club,
city debt, a college or two, policemen with
uniforms and a Carnegie library.
"Can we Imagine the respective popula
tions of the fitty-one most populous blocks
In Manhattan to be populations of fifty-one

live county seats of the great state of Iowa?
Can we conceive of these fifty-one county
seats being uprooted and transplanted to
this city, here to be crushed down into
a noisome area of 200 acres? That Is none
too vivid a way of Illustrating Just what
the actual fact of 177.98S people crowded
Into 200 teeming acrea of Manhattan Island
" Many New Yorkers can go back In mem
ory to soma small town on circus day. Let
us in fancy crowd ourselves with all the
other able-bodied citizens of the town and
half the countryside into a five-acre lot
to witness tha 'grand free exhibition after
the parade "
"Can we conceive of that crowd of happy,
perspiring humanity men, women and
children and crying babies condemned to
eat and sleep and love and hate and live
their lives In that five-acre lot? And a cor
don of clanging street cars and a wall of
five-story tenements, and we may get some
conception of such a block as that bounded '
by West Sixty-first street, Amsterdam ave-
nue. West Sixty-second street and West
End avenue, with its population of 6,173 I
living o- 6.392 acrea."
Aa Applied to fc'ew York. i
In speaking of the density of pbulatlon '
in Greater New York. Mr. FlnleN says
that the total area la 209,218 acrea, and
"If we roughly estimate that half of the I
greater city is occupied by streets, parks,
business and manufacturing establish
ments and vacant lots, tncre will be left ;
104.609 acres of residence area. If all of ;
this estimated residential area of New York
were as densely populated aa the lowest
of these twelve populous and dense blocka, !
Gotham would number 115,000,000 aouls.
"Allowing the residential area of Man
hattan alone at two-thirds of the total
acreage. If every block on Manhattan were
an l,10C-to-the-acre block, the borough
would need no numerical aid from alstf r j
bnrougha to leave largest London far be- ,
Mr. Finley points out that all his figures
are based on the 1909 census and declares
that the blocks today. If the exact popula
tion were known, might treble the list
of 1900 in regard to a density of popula- j
tlon of more tiian 1,100 to the acre. There
were seven In !9u0 and twelve In 1905. He
also says that there are doubtless many
more blocks in the city than fifty-one hav
ing a total population of 3,000. "j

LONDON, May 4. (Special ) Dr. Emll
Reich, the popular society philosopher of
London, has Just been Interviewed upon
the Thaw case. He says:
"Whenever people study Americana they
come to the conclusion that madness has
its geography as its degrees. Where an
Englishman remains calm and callous an
Irishman is next door to Insanity and vice
versa. The Americans, however, are high
strung to a degree and ahow a mentality
totally different from the average Europ-
eon. When they get excited they reach a
rapid finale with a fearful crash. Their un
governable rage la neither a big fire nor a
vast flood, but a volcanic eruption.
"Of the things f hat will bring the Ameri
can volcano into eruption there is especi
ally one that will seldom fall of effect. I
mean attacka on their women.
"Every American has in all truth and
sincerity a deep-seated respect for and a
strong desire to worship his womenfolk, i
He is chivalrous and invarlubly polite to ,
them. He treats every woman aa If aha
were a lady born.
Attitude of the Men.
"Aa has been remarked a hundred timea 1
the American gentleman h quite satisfied '
to pile up money by continuous and mctt
worrying labor In the office or the factory ;
provided hla 'missus' Is thereby enabled to
give receptions, to 'do' Europe, to become i
a scholar and to shine generally In society. 1
It Is quite true that millions of American
women are working Just as hard as do '
American men. I
"This, hjwever, does not impair the gen- '
erallzation at all. Ltke all true generallza- :
tions the present one comprtsea both the
actual and the potential woman In America. '
Any one ef the hard working American '
would as soon as her husband made
money enough to render her personal labor
superfluous at once rise to the occasion
and shine shine In the parlor, at the
theater, in the watering places; while her
husband would continue to drudge for ber
with a contented smile.
"Men are in America not supposed to In
terrupt the literary conversation of the
'ladies.' On leaving Huncary I first went
to America 'and when I first saw the
Americans at a recep'.lon I found all the
men standing apeechlesaly with arms
folded on their breast In the back drawing
room, while the ladles were briskly itys- .
cussing Emerson. i
"Being under the Magyar delusion that
a man In society muat be anil,' hie to women
I atepped among the laJiea and also talked
Emerson. In a few mlnutea I overheard
one of the Americana remark to another, j
'Has that Johnny been hired for that? j
Aristocracy of America. J
"The fact of the matter la that the :
women of America form the aristocracy of
"No people can be without an aristocracy
of some kind. With one, the poets; with
another, the soldiers; with a third, the
priests: with the fourth, the lawyers, etc.,
constitute what ia really the dominating or J
socially supreme caste or class.
"In the states for reasons quite patent
such a claaa could not grow up among the
men. But aince It la lndlspenslble, as all
history proves, it arose perhaps for the
first time among women In America. Al- j

they not right?

LONDON, May 4. (Special.) As a result
of the almost world wide music hall war
between Keith & Proctor and Klaw &
Erlanger, the representatives of the English
artists, say that their stars are "in clover."
Mr. George Foster, who is agent for Harry
Lauder, and other well known artists pro
phesies halcyon days for English artists.
"They want English "stars' at any price,"
he said in an Interview. "I am asked to
engage them at all cost salary Is no ob
ject. "Harry Lauder Is to have $2,500 per week.
A friend of mine declares that he will be
offered I7.0CO a week before his engage
ment is over. There are hundreds and
thousands of Scotchmen In New York, who
will support him to a man.
"Gus Elen and Marie Lloyd will visit
America In September and Lockhart's
elephants In October. George Robey and
Harry Fragson are ready to cross the At
lantic. I made Little Tich a phenomenal
offer last week, but so far, he has refused
It. Daisy James is another artist, who is
getting ready to go.
"I am negotiating with ai dozen other
atars, but nothing is settled aa yet."
"There are a number of agenta of Klaw
& Erlanger In this country at present, and
they will engage every one they can. 'Get
the biggest that can be found,' is what they
ten me. 'Money Is nothing.'
"It has all occurred recently since the
formation of the great combines and the
beginning of the music hall war. Artists
have visited America regularly In the past,
but this is quite a different matter. They
will now go In shoals.
"It will be a great thing for English
artists, but I do not think It will affect the
muslo halls here. The visits will be only
short ones and the artists will then return
to fulfill their engagements In this country.
