Compared with the tentative budget of Bloomington, this makes very interest- Ing reading. According to the census of 1910, Bloomington had a population of 25,763, while Decatur had 31,140. It Is probable that In the last four years the ratio of growth has been about the same, and that Decatur now has about 5,400 more people than Bloomington. MORE EXPENDITURES. The appropriation ordinance of Decatur calls for expenditures of $310,048.27, an increase over last year of about $12,000. This, despite the fact that Decatur voted out saloons. The tentative expenditures of Bloomlngton for the coming year are $315,219.40, or about $16,000 more than last year. This also despite the fact that Eloomlngton voted out saloons.
