As accuracy of Ward population is impossible, I assign to each, for
comparative purposes, numbers approximating those of previous years.
I assume that probably St. James Street and High Street have larger
populations than in 1908, not because fewer houses are unoccupied, but
rather that, owing to economic conditions, each house shelters a greater
number than in 1901.
