Over 200 Person* Killed Themselves •taut Yenr-Tcndency to Self-D.e»truotloa Greutcr in Men Than In Women. .KEW YOBIV. :Feb. ?,.— T1 V 3 number of suicides occurring- in this city during the year ending- December 31, 1800, was 339, of \vhich_number 190 were men and 48 were women. Of the former 141 were of foreign birth and 41) were native born, while of the women 27 were of foreign birth and 23 were native born. These figures show that the total number of suicides for the year, 10S, were of foreign nativity and only 71 were natives, of the United States. When the increase in population between 1858 and 1890 is taken into account the table shows there has been a .decrease in suicides during the last five years. A monthly average for the five years shows the greatest number of suicides to have occurred during April and the smallest number during August. The tendency to commit suicide is greater in men "than in women and during .the five years under consideration the ratio does not fall below 1 to 3 in favor of women. A comparison of statistics for 1S87 and 1889 shows the similarity of talcing life resorted to by suicides and to what extent the choice of methods employed is influenced by sex. In 18S7 the order of preference by m»les was shooting-, hanging-, cutting-, drowning and taking poison; in 1890 shooting, hanging, cutting and taking poison. The order of preference among females was: In 1887, taking poison, hanging, drowning and cutting, and in. 1S90, taking poison, shooting and hanging. From 1SSO to 1S90 the majority of suicides were between 25 and 45 years of age. THE COMMONS DISSOLVED.
