Increased 24.7 Per Cent-Charleston
Only 5.4 Per Cent
The population of Columbia, ac
cording to the census of 1910 is 26,
319, an increase of 5,211 over that
shown in 19*30, which was 21,108.
The per cent, of increase was 24.7
as compared with an * increase of
37.5 per cent, from 1890 to 1900. It
will surprise all Carolinaians' no
doubt, to learn that the city grew
more rapidly between 1890 and
1900 than between 1900 and 1910.
The increase in population in the
former decade was 5,755 as against
5,211 in the latter period. It will
be seen that while the per Cent, of
increase was one-third greater in
1890-1900 the acutal gain in popu
lation was only about 500 greater.
While every one knows that the
actual population of Columbia is
much greater than 26,319, yet the
geomtrical line which is fixed by
the city's charter stands between
Columbia lind its full credit in the
matter of population. Waverley,
Shandon, Brooklyn and one or two
other suburbs should be included in
any population figures of the city,
but the census bureau has not yet
compiled the figures of these smaller
places and they can not be given.
Charleston's growth in the past ten
years has been 3,026, making that
city's present population 58,833, as
against 55,807 in 1900, and 54,955 in
1890. The increase in that city from
1890 to 1900 was 852, or 1.6 per cent.,
while its increase from 1900 to 1910
was 5.4 per cent.
"TRUSTY" CONVICT SHOT.
Successful Colored Farmer Was
Forced to Use Gun on Prisoner.
Ned Blackwell, a prominent negro
farmer, who lives about four miles
south of Manning, is in jail to
await the developments of pistol
shot wounds inflicted by him on the
person of one Joe Lewis, a chain
gang trusty. According to reports,
a negro convict working on the
chain gang a few miles out on the
Summerton road, made his escape,
and Joe Lewis, the trusty, was arm
ed and sent in search of the fugitive.
He went to Blackwell's place and
acted in such a manner as to cause
Blackwell to order him away. Be
refused to go and Blackwell fired
on him with a pistol wounding him
twice. It is said that Blackwell is
quite a successful farmer, making

Section 4 of Interstate Com

NO CHANGE UNTIL FEB. ll, 1911
Carriers May File Higher Rates Pro
vided They Do Not Discriminate
Against Intermediate Points High
er Than on August 17,1910.
Washington.-In a formal order
issued the Interstate Commerce
Commission announces its intention
to administer strictly Section 4 (the
long and short-haul provision) of
the recently amended interstate
commerce act. The order was the
outgrowth of a hearing held by the
commission many days ago on the
matter of the application of inter
state carriers generally for relief
under the long and short-haul pro
By the terms of the order there
will be no change in the existing
status or in the present reports of
carriers until February 17, 1911.
They may file with the commsision
such changes in rates and tariffs as
ordinarily would ,be flied in the
course of their business under the
present rate basis or adjustments.
This accords to the transportation
companies the right to file higher
rates or fares to, intermediate points
and through rates or fares higher
than the combinations of the inter
mediate rates or fares, provided that
in so doing the discrimination
against intermediate points is not
made greater than in existence on
August 17, 1910.
The commission says that through
this permission, it does not neces
sarily approve any rates or fares
that may be filed, all of them being
held subject to complaint,
It is ordered that the commission
reaffirm its previously expressed
view that a thorough rate or fare
that is higher than the combination
of the interstate rates cr fares is
prima facie unreasonable and will
insist upon the application of that
principle at the earliest possible
date in every instance except pos
sible extreme and very unusual
This is understood by the com
mission to mean that ouiy in extra
ordinary conditions will it exercise
its authority conferred by Congress
to permit in its discretion, technical
violations of the long and short-haul
The order provides that such car
riers as may desire to be relieved of
the requirements of Section 4 of
the act shall file with-the commis

Washington.-Convinced that one

remedying the condition. He ap
proved the issuance of a special
stamp and - stamped envelopes for
use instead of franks in the trans
mission of official mail, resulting
from the business of the new postal
savings system. Eventually Mr.
Hitchcock hopes to extend the re

In the past the transmission of
government and official mail under
franks has cost the government mil
lions of dollars a year. Astounding
abuses of the privilege have been
noted from time to timo. The re

which Mr. Hitchcock expects even
tually to place the Postoffice De

wiping out an annual deficit of sev

his five companions were landed
here by the steamship Trent, which
picked them up at sea after they
had abandoned their dirigible bal

attempt ever made to cross the At

Standing on the deck of the Trent
Wellman made this statement:
"We thought we could not get
along without the equilibrator. Now
we find we could not get along with
it. Our plans for the future are in
definite until we find something
that will do what we thought the
equilibrator would do."
The "equlibrator," to which Well
man attributes the failure of his
voyage, was the series of tanks con
taining gasoline, which floated in
the water, attached to the airship
by a long rope.
The direct cause for abandoning
the America was the exhaustion of
the supply of gasoline, whioh had
to be thrown out to save the ship.
When the crew abandoned the ship,
only enough was left to last about

Captain Down, "the airship was

has views about food. He says:
"I have always believed that tho
duty of the physician does not cease

owe it to humanity to teach them how

hygienic and dietetic laws. '

I take great pleasure in saying to the
public that in my own experience and
also from personal observation I have
found no food equal to Qrape-NU^
and that I find there is almost no limit '
