Alabama today in the supreme court
of the United States made a spirited c
attack upon the department of jus- 5
tice of the federal government.
The attorney general was defondine? ~
the constitutionality of the i

question of the validity of the law
had arisen in an appeal of Alonzo
Palley. a negro, from his conviction
under that law of a misdemanor. He
was charged with making a service
contract with inte-nt to defraud his
employers. receiving advance money,
and then breaking the contract. The
department of justice had been per
mitted to file a brief and participate
in the argument of the case as
"friend of the court."
Mr. Garber expressed surprise that

"it appears to us to be an inaxcus

Assistant Attorney General Harr in
reply expressed a willingness to have
the case tried on the facts in the rec

argument to show that Bailey had
been denied his rights under the 14th
amendment to the federal constitu

of the growth of the capital city of
South Carolina during the past ten
years and shows that there has been
an increase of 24.7 per cent., and at
the same time does the territory an
The figures as announced by the
census bureau are for the city of Co
lumbia proper and do not include the
suburbs of Shandon, Waverley, Hyatt
Park, College Place, North Columbia,
Colonial Heights and New Brookland.
The census report for the suburbs
will be announced later.
The city directory for Columbia, in
cluding the suburbs. gave the popul.a
tion as 45,507, divided a.s follows:
White, 28,791; negro, 16,716.
The percentagle *of increase, 24.7
per cent., compares favorably'with all
of the cities that reports have been
mnade on so far, and is nearly 20 per
cent, greater than Charleston.

Washington, D. C., Oct. 20.--The
population of Columbia, according to
the census of 1910 is 26,319, an in
ercease of 5.211 over that shown in
1900, which was 2l,108. The per cent.
af increase was 24.7, as compared with
an increase of 37.5 per cent. from 1890
to 1900. It wil surprise all Colum
bians, no doubt, to learn that the city
rew more rapidly between 1890 and
1900 than between 1900 and 1910. The
ncrease in population in the former
lecade was 5,755 as against 5,211 in
:he latter period. It will be seen that
c'hile the per cent. of increase was
>ne-third greater in 1890-1900 the ac

tbout 500 greater.
While every one knows that the ac
