A Victory for the Three C.
When the Charleston, Cincinnati and
Chicago railroad was first started, sev
eral townships in South Carolina voted
to issue bonds for the building of the
road. When the road was completed,
and the stock issue to the townships,
they refused to issue the bonds. A test
case was mndr of the refusal of one ol
them and a decree has just been filed by
the United States circuit court, ordering
that the bonds lie turned over. The
IhjikIs amount to about $('i00,(I00.

tion they would take on the proKisition
of General Young to pnvc one more mile
Alderman Miller says he will certainly
vote against giving any more contracts
for paving without first obtuining cr
raission from the people.
Alderman Pullinm says he will vote
against laying any more paving until the
people vote for an appropriation.
Aldermrtn Leonard says he could not
vote for the cxieniliturc of nny more
money nt present for that purHisc, ns
the city cannot afford it with the treas
ury in the condition it is.
Alderman FiUpatrick is iputc unwell
nnd will not Ik able to attend the meet
ing to-uight. He is of the opinion that
the ieoplc should have an opportunity
to vote on the iuestion of paving nny
more streets nnd would vote agninst
the matter if he were present to-night.
Aldermen McDowell is somewhat unite-
ided as to the way lie will vote until he
sees the nature ol the proHisilion made
to-night, lie would not say whether he
would vote for or against giving the
ontract to Gen. Young without a vote
if the public.
Alderman Wolfe is the only one who
said he would vote to-night for giving
the contract. He seems lo be so well
satisfied with the strcats mved at pres
ent that he is willing to have sonic more
