What was the population of Galveston in 1900?

The 1900 Federal Census, taken in June 1900, records the total population of the city of Galveston as 37,789. This number is disputed by the Galveston city directory of 1901-02, which claims that because the census was taken in June, many business men and their families were out of town on vacation. The Galveston city directory of 1901-02 then claims that by its records the population in 1900 was 42,210.
