TRENTON, N. J., October 31st, 1899. To His Excellency Hon. Foster M. Voorhees, Governor of the State of
New Jersey: SIR-I have the honor to transmit herewith the twenty-third annual report of the Board of Health of the State of New Jersey, and the report of the Bureau of Vital Statistics, for the statistical year ending June 30th, 1899.
Marriages.—The number of marriages recorded during the year ending June 30th, 1899, was 13,336. The following table shows the decrease in the number of marriages which has followed the enactment of the law of 1897, requiring that where both parties are non-residents of the State a license for the ceremony shall be procured :

DURING THE TEN YEARS ENDING JUNE 30th, 1899.
Marriage certificates recorded, . . 16,954 15,847 16,572 17,627 16,690 16,537 18,774' 18,171 13,664 13,336
Birthe.-The number of births recorded during the statistical year was 29,419. The following table shows the number of births recorded during each of the past fifteen years, and it is apparent that the sudden diminution of recorded births from 34,687 in 1898 to 29,419 in 1899 is due very largely to the inefficiency of the system employed in New Jersey for the collection of birth returns.

2. This act shall take effect immediately.
Deaths.-The number of deaths which occurred in New Jersey during the year ending June 30th, 1899, was 30,999, and the estimated population is 1,855,872, thus showing a death-rate of 16.70.
The liability of error in estimating population increases with each succeeding year after the census enumerations, and this factor introduces an element of uncertainty relating to birth-rates and death-rates which can only be corrected when the next census shall have been completed.
During the past year there were 10,357 deaths of children under five years of age; 8,042 of persons over sixty, and 1,773 deaths occurred in persons over eighty.
Deaths from the Classified Causes. The following table shows that the mortality from the preventable causes of disease has been greater than it was during the previous year, except in the case of scarlet fever, measles and diphtheria :
