Flnst the city of Km k IslmiJ restrain
Ing It from cutting cfT Itiu water at hi

Mr.Wair.ncr kbM the city may !e briefly
related. It,imily grows out of the new
system of water rates recently adopted
by ordinance and which went into effect
May 1 last, and by Ihe provisions of which
the large consumers are required to pay
meter rates for water. Mr. Wagner, like
others, had previously paid water rental
in accordance with contract rates, but he
claims now Unit the city has put meter
In his brewery, ami that by the new
measurement bis rates are Increased I'M)
per cent; that last year his water rent
amounted to f .V2."i, and that for the pres
ent year, at the ratio so far it will foot up
to $:,txxi. e I one of seventy pro
vided with the mctur system, and he
hold that with all others, except him,
the city has made compromises or reduc
tions, anil that the system of taxation
should be uniform, either all by contract
or all by meter. The city has refused to
confer with him on thu subject, and has
notified him that It proposes to cut off
bis water rate by Jan. 1st, as he has not
paid his rent. Hence his course.

"To the People or South Caholixa:
The events of tlie last few days in a portion
of the state, of the commission of the most

colored men in Barnwell county, calls for
immediate and sober action on the part of
all law-abiding citizens of this state, look
ing to the enfonvment of the law for

end we, the undersigned citizens of Charles

men of this state to assemble in the city of
Columbia, on tbe 2d day of January, l&ld, at
8 o'clock p. m for the purpose of dismissing
and formulating a plan by which the law
can lie enforced and order preserved through

COLONIZING THE NEGROES.
Pour Thousand Already In Oklahoma
Homes In the West.
TortKA, Kan., Dec SI. D. B. Garrett, of
the colored colony of Oklahoma, arrived in
this city yesterday, and said fully 4,0.0 col
ored jieople were now in Oklahoma, and that
the colonisation work would be pu-hed in all
the cities of the west He said the people
were entirely satisfied with the country and
their prneiiecta. Col. Mason, of M ssissippi,
who has been here two weeks, is advocating
the purchase of the Cherokee strip for settle
ment by the colored race. Several promi
nent negroes of this city are moving in that
direction, and will ask President Harrison to
appoint a commission of colored men to ne
gotiate w ith the Cherokee for tlie purchase
of tbe strip for homstead settlement for their
own race exclusively.
A Call on the Oovernment.
This proposition is founded on information
that the ludians are w Uliug to have colored
people settle on the strip. It is argued that
as a resolution has just been introduced in
the Vnited States senate to appropriate a
large sum of money to carry colored col
onists to Africa, if the government can ap
propriate money to transport the negro to
Africa it bus the power to appropriate money
to purchase lands for him at hjins and could
buy thestrip for this purp.we. ft is urged that
a strong and uurrf effort he made to this
end, and the A fro-American league which
meets shortly in Chicago is isspiested to take
ttie subject under oiusiderat'on.
