This shows that tho oolored schools
have received from tho city sohool
fund more than threo times as much
as the oolored people bavo paid to
said fund. Thus it will bo scon that
the white tax payers are paying annu
ally just $4638.00 to eduaate the col
ored children ! 1 And tho oolored poo-
plo are paying only $1887.00 for the
same purpose. Now what become of
