Sevv York, it appears that there
are 14,UT newspapers and period-
icals published in the Ignited States
and Canada; of these the I'nited
States has 12.U73, an average of one
paper for every a,SOT persons. In
1884 the total number of newspapers
was less by .823 than at present,
and while the gain this year is not
so marked as in some previous
years, it is still considerable. Kan-
sas shows the greatest increase, the
the number being 7S, while Illinois
follows with a gain ot 77. It is
curious to notice that ^New \ ork,
the scene of so much political ac-
tivity during the last campaign,
should have one-third as many new
papers as the state of Pennsylvania.
As an index to the comparative
growth and prosperty ot different
sections of the country, especially
the Territories, the number of new
papers forms an interesting study,
and may well occupy the attention
