Condsonscd News Items of General Interest Gathered Within tie State Boundary Lines. COLUMBIA'S POPULATION. Increased 24.7 Per Cent-Charleston Only 5.4 Per Cent The population of Columbia, ac cording to the census of 1910 is 26, 319, an increase of 5,211 over that shown in 19*30, which was 21,108. The per cent, of increase was 24.7 as compared with an * increase of 37.5 per cent, from 1890 to 1900. It will surprise all Carolinaians' no doubt, to learn that the city grew more rapidly between 1890 and 1900 than between 1900 and 1910. The increase in population in the former decade was 5,755 as against 5,211 in the latter period. It will be seen that while the per Cent, of increase was one-third greater in 1890-1900 the acutal gain in popu lation was only about 500 greater. While every one knows that the actual population of Columbia is much greater than 26,319, yet the geomtrical line which is fixed by the city's charter stands between Columbia lind its full credit in the matter of population. Waverley, Shandon, Brooklyn and one or two other suburbs should be included in any population figures of the city, but the census bureau has not yet compiled the figures of these smaller places and they can not be given. Charleston's growth in the past ten years has been 3,026, making that city's present population 58,833, as against 55,807 in 1900, and 54,955 in 1890. The increase in that city from 1890 to 1900 was 852, or 1.6 per cent., while its increase from 1900 to 1910 was 5.4 per cent.

NO CHANGE UNTIL FEB. ll, 1911 Carriers May File Higher Rates Pro vided They Do Not Discriminate Against Intermediate Points High er Than on August 17,1910. Washington.-In a formal order issued the Interstate Commerce Commission announces its intention to administer strictly Section 4 (the long and short-haul provision) of the recently amended interstate commerce act. The order was the outgrowth of a hearing held by the commission many days ago on the matter of the application of inter state carriers generally for relief under the long and short-haul pro vision. By the terms of the order there will be no change in the existing status or in the present reports of carriers until February 17, 1911. They may file with the commsision such changes in rates and tariffs as ordinarily would ,be flied in the course of their business under the present rate basis or adjustments. This accords to the transportation companies the right to file higher rates or fares to, intermediate points and through rates or fares higher than the combinations of the inter mediate rates or fares, provided that in so doing the discrimination against intermediate points is not made greater than in existence on August 17, 1910. The commission says that through this permission, it does not neces sarily approve any rates or fares that may be filed, all of them being held subject to complaint, It is ordered that the commission reaffirm its previously expressed view that a thorough rate or fare that is higher than the combination of the interstate rates cr fares is prima facie unreasonable and will insist upon the application of that principle at the earliest possible date in every instance except pos sible extreme and very unusual cases." This is understood by the com mission to mean that ouiy in extra ordinary conditions will it exercise its authority conferred by Congress to permit in its discretion, technical violations of the long and short-haul provision. . The order provides that such car riers as may desire to be relieved of the requirements of Section 4 of the act shall file with-the commis sion on or before February 17, 1911, BIG SUM FOR Y. M. C. A.

Washington.-Convinced that one of the greatest sources of loss to the Postoffice Department lies in the existing method of franking government mail matter without check, Postmaster General Hitch cock has taken the first step toward remedying the condition. He ap proved the issuance of a special stamp and - stamped envelopes for use instead of franks in the trans mission of official mail, resulting from the business of the new postal savings system. Eventually Mr. Hitchcock hopes to extend the re form to all branches of the govern ment service. In the past the transmission of government and official mail under franks has cost the government mil lions of dollars a year. Astounding abuses of the privilege have been noted from time to timo. The re form is part of the general plan by which Mr. Hitchcock expects even tually to place the Postoffice De partment on a self-sustaining basis, wiping out an annual deficit of sev eral million dollars.

Our plans for the future are in definite until we find something that will do what we thought the equilibrator would do." The "equlibrator," to which Well man attributes the failure of his voyage, was the series of tanks con taining gasoline, which floated in the water, attached to the airship by a long rope. The direct cause for abandoning the America was the exhaustion of the supply of gasoline, whioh had to be thrown out to save the ship. When the crew abandoned the ship, only enough was left to last about 24 hours. . "When I came on deck," said Captain Down, "the airship was plainly visible. In the light of the full moon she looked enormous, hanging low in the northeast and close al hand.

Mr. Wellman injured his hand in trying to catch one of our ropes. "The last I saw of the airship she was 15 or 20 miles away with one end in the water. Her valves had been opened and she undoubtedly sank soon, dragged down by ber heavy machinery."
