REFORM ! RKFORM 11 -We gladly
give place in our columns to the fol
lowing local from last week's Newi
and Times :
Senator Andrews left here on Mon
da}' last for Columbia, where he will
remain until the Legislature adjourns,
Senator Andrews is a hard working
representative, and we hope to record
many good things of him during thc
POPULATION OF ORANGEBURG COUN
TY.-According to the last census tnt
population oilOrangeburg County U
aa foliow?t' : Whites, 10,555 ; Color
ed, 23,515.-Total 31,070.
In 1870 according to the census
then taken the population was :
Whites, 5,709 ; Colored, 11,156.
This gives an apparent increase ol
about 111 percent. If these figures
are a true index of the increasing
prosperity of our euuuiy and this
ratio is only continued for a few years,
the whole county will become one
vast city, in comparison which New
York City would pass for a little
country town. Dut this enormous
increase cannot be accountod for on
any other hypothesis than that the
census of 1870 is radically wrong, be
ing much less than the actual popu
lation. Wo have before called atten
tion to United States census of 1870
asgivingOrangeburgC.il. a popu
lation less tuau 500 inhabitants
which was apparent to all as mucli
below tho real population. By thc
last census we have the credit of have
ing a population of about 1,500 which
is probably correct. Orangeburg ie
a growing county and no doubt pre
sents greater encouragement to im
migration than any other county in
the State but this increase cannot be
thus accounted for. '

Fifth Anniversary of the independ

The election of Solicitor was post
poned to the next meeting. An ad
journment was then taken to the
Hall of the belonging lo this enter

---The Day we Celebrate," was re

Mr. Mellichamp wt;s in one his hap
iest moods, as the repeated cheers
and uncontrollable laughter fully

With impressive, silence, thc company

In response to thc toast our wor
thy patron the venerable and utier

of lin; To?'u Council in putting thc
. j lire depatmenl in a more ellicionl
condition; icccomtnending u tax ci
one min tor that purpose.
To ''Our Fire Department*' Mr.
Riggs responded, whose remarks
were rendered especially touching on
account of his recent misfortunes.
- Ile said it was with great difficulty
that he was present, ho had been
accustomed to meet willi them as am
able-bodied fireman, still he should
endeavor to discharge the duties of
' chief to which he was recently elected
He knew thc wants of the fire depart
ment. Its present inefficiency was
was owing toa want of funds. The
. money had been expended in con
? structing new streets to' enhance the
$ value of private property to the de
. triment of thc public. Ile favored
the ono mill tax recoinmendered by
i the Mayor, and pledged all his per
; sonal inlluence and efforts to make
. the fire department efficient.
