Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 27, 1906.
To the Editor:
—On page 613 of the Educational Number (August 25) of The Journal, under the California heading, the city of Los Angeles is given a population of 116,420.Since clinical facilities are dependent somewhat on the amount of population, a correction is in order if a proper impression is to be given. The population of Los Angeles at the present time is over 240,000 instead of 116,420. I refer you to the enclosed article from to-day's Los Angeles Times showing the most recent figures. The school census last spring showed a population of 230,000. Further, the city water department has 50,977 service pipes in use and five persons to a service pipe is a conservative average. The monthly health reports are based on a population of 200,000, in order to allow a safe margin, but this estimate will shortly be increased.Los
