The public schools of South Carolina
instructed last year 25,157 white and 98,
938 colored pupils. This is an increase of
27,121 over the large enrollment for the
preceding year. From a comparison of
this enrollment with the data furnished by
the census of 1880, it appears that over 73
per cent of the white children and nearly
55 per cent, of the colored children of the
state between the ages of six and sixteen
years, were in attendance on the public

stealing the mackeral and vension. lie was
held to bail in the sum of $200 and went
to the county jail. The value of the articles
stolen is not sufficient to permit sending
him to the penitentiary and he will prob
ably only receive a fine and a short term in
the county jail. It is believed that this is
what he wanted, in order to be housed and
fed during the winter without being com
pelled to stoop to the level of the plebian
who earns his bread by honest toil.
A well dressed man came to The Holi
day several days ago and registered as J. II.
Campbell, land agent lor the Chicago and
Northwestern railroad company. Be re
mained several days and then showed a
dispatch purporting to have been sent to
him by President Jarrett, of the railroad
company named, promising to send him
some money immediately. But the money
did not come and Mr. "Campbell" was sus
pected of crookedness. Chief Myer's atten
tion was called to the case and an examina
tion of the dispatch proved that it was in
the same hand writing as the name on the
register, showing that it was a forgery. A
search for Campbell followed, but the bird
had flown ; at least, though thorough search
was made of the city and vicinity, no signs
of him were discovered.
A private Utter from a young man
who has been actively engaged in an exten
sive business in Chicago tor some years,
and who is therefore thoroughly able to
judge, says that businas in that great city
is less active than it has been at any time
for years. Clothing men are especially
down-hearted and suffering much because
of the mild winter weather. Business firms
generally are reducing the salaries of their
employes in order, in a measure, to make
up for the loss of trade. Reports from St
Louis are of the same nature. Business
men elsewhere who find less activity in
trade than they have been accustomed to,
may derive some consolation from the
knowledge that in their unsought esse they
have some illustrious companions.
The council joint committee, composed
of the ordinance and finance committees
which in turn are composed of Aldermen
Hughes, McUale, Lancaster and Blake and
the mayor as ex officio member, met at the
council chamber last night for the purpose
of considering the petition of the St. Louis
aad Cairo railroad company to the city
council of Cairo, referred to the joint com
mittee at the last meeting of the city coun
cil. The committee had notified Captain
Williams, of the railroad company, of its
intention to meet, in order that any repre
sentatives of the company, desiring to be
present at the meeting, might come; and as
a result, Col. Hamilton superintendent, and
Captain Williams agent were both
in attendance as was also Judge F. Bross.
The meeting was called to order by Alder
man Blake, and was organized by the elec
tion of Alderman Hughes to tbe chair and
Alderman Blake as secretary. The secre
tary tbea read tbe petition of the company,
which was published in these columns
at the time it was received by the council,
and then tha committee relapsed into a sort
of "mum sociable" without the humorous
features usual to such an occasion, howevi r.
Mayor Halliday finally broke the silence by
a concise statement of the case now from
the city's standpoint, the strong points of
which statement were, in substance, that
since the city and Col. Taylor together
bad expended much money in repairing and
strengthening the levees and banks on the
Mississippi side of tbe city ,so that there
was now no longer any reason to apprehend
danger from the Mississippi river, the rail
road company could not offer the city any
inducement to grant it tbe important privi
lege asked for. When tbe city really need
ed aid to protect herself and asked this aid
as a consideration for the important valua
ble privilege asked for by the company,
then the company refused to render the aid.
Now the city bad helped herself and others
bad also done a large share, so that the
only inducement the railroad company
could have offered the city was now no lon
ger available. Furthermore, there was now
no longer any good reason why the railroad
company should not remain where it now
is. The banks were safe from abrasion by
the river, and it only required the expendi
ture of a few thousand dollars by the com
pany to raise its track above overflow so as
not to be interrupted each year by high
water. The company would not have to
expend a cent to obtain a right of way
where it now ran, for it could exchange the
right ot way that it has for tbe one it now
occupies. The only object the company
could now-bave incoming inside the city's
levee was to avoid the necessity of expend
ing a few thousand dollars to raise its
track above higb water for a short distance.
The whole question had now resolved it
self into one of a few dollars and cents for
the railroad company and nothing
for the city, and he did not
think that tbe council, as represen
tatives of the people's interests, should
vote away a valuable franchise for no other
reason at all than to enable a railroad com
pany to save a few thousand dollars.
Another strong point, made by Alderman
Blake, was that the city council bad no
power to grant a right-of-way over any
street to any railroad company except upon
a petition of tbe owners of more than half
the property abutting the street or portion
of street sought to be used, and that in this
case such petition was not before tbe coun J
cil; that, on the contrary, the owners of
more than half the property abutting on
the portion of street over which right-of-way
was asked for in the petition before
the committee, had themselves enjoined the
city council from granting a
right-of-way aud that said in
junction still remained iu force.
Alderman McUale created a marry ripple
all around by saying that it looked very
small for a great, big, wealthy railroad cor
poration to seek to crawl in behind our
levees alter letting us bear all the dangers
and heavy expenses incident to their erec
tion; and with a twinkle in his off eye be
requested Judge Bross to send over the
brinely deep for his country men, the
wealthy bond-holders of the company, to
come over here and drop a few thousand
tor an embankment of their own. After
some further discussion of different points,
relevant and irrelivent, the committee re
solved that "it is the sense of this commit
tee that the prayer of the petitioners be not
granted, and that a sub-committee of three
be appointed, including the chair, to pre
pare a report to the council and submit said
report to this committee at a future meet
ing to be called by the chair."
The chair appointed Aldermen Blake
and Lancaster aa the other two
members of the committee.

The increasing dissatisfaction in the use of High
Test oils now offered to the trade, and the general com

attention to WARDEN & OXNARD'S GENUINE ELAINE

light and universal satisfaction.
