at l .?'dork. Prosent- Ht- lionor tho
Mayor, and all of the Coard of Aldermen.
The Committee of Wavsaucl Moans pre?
sented tho following report:
To tim Honorable Mayor a ri Aldermen of
tin- City ot Columbia.
GENTLEMEN: The petition of tho i secti
tors of J. J. Kinsler was referred to the
Committee of Ways and M. ans. and they
beg !i ave to report unfavorably on the pe?
tition, for thc following reasons: The m
cessitii s i f the city an fully i ipial to ib-ite
of any individual, and involve the interest
of many individuals whose claims on tb?
city treasury must be postponed wheu it is
empty. The only means of supplying the
treasury is from the collection of taxes.
One-1 .nrlh of the taxes of last year are yet
unpaid, and to grant the petitioners their
request would involve thc necessity of
granting similar pi titions for others, under
like circumstances, and thus cut off all re?
sources or submit to thc charge class
administration. Another consideration ls,
that we cannot see tho i reliability of any
increased value in real estate in the city in
the next ten months, while the debt must
imitase by the accumulating interest.
Whilst your commit t<. sympathize di < ? | J -
ly with tic pt titioners, iii justice to the
city and to themselves,-they feel bound to
report adversely, and leave the conclusion
to thc better judgment and decision ol
l?esni ctfullv submitted.

.V NEFARIOUS BUSINESS.-It is the
richly-freighted ship that is tracked by thc
robbers of thc sea: and, on tho same prin?
ciple, it is thc popular sp?cifie that the
land buccaneers, called countcrfi hors, se?
lect for their shining mark. If OST ET?
TI'I I'S STOMACH BITTERS stand pre?
eminent among medicinal preparations in
this country. Thc demand for them is
something wonderful-unparalleled : hence
thc counterfeiters know full well that if
they can impose their bery Quids upon the
people as that famous tonic, they can
make fortunes by tho fraud. They arc
now at work. Detectives are on the trail
of some of them, and others have been !
already brought to book. Let the public
second the proprietors in their efforts to
baffle the reckless scoundrels who seek at j
once to poison the community and swindle. !
