The Official Reports Show Handsome Gains in Montgomery
|Upper and Lower Gwynedd||3,223||2,367|
|Upper and Lower Pottsgrove||2,007||1,885|

Lansdale, with a gain of 859 easily maintains her place as the fifth borough in the county, the per cent. of increase here being greater than at Royersford, which was a close sixth in 1890. A further gain of less than 400 would put Lansdale ahead of Bridgeport and land us in fourth place. Ambler, which was hard pressed by North Wales for ninth place ten years ago is now safely in the lead, as North Wales has gained less than 300 in ten years.
In sixteen townships in Montgomery a decided gain is made, while in fourteen only the population runs behind that of 1890.
|Lower Makefield, including Yardley village||2,871||2,028|
Twenty-two of the townships in Bucks county run behind the census of ten years ago, while only eight show a gain in population.
Doylestown, the county seat, shows a gain in ten yeard of but little over 100, and is being hard pressed by Quakertown for second place.
In Delaware county 11 townships show a gain, while nine fall behind the 1890 census. Delaware county's gain is largely in the city of Chester which has advanced from 20,226 to 34,200.
The gain in Chester county's boroughs is noticeable. Spring City which had 1797 inhabitants in 1890, has now 2567.
