when a heavy rain comes the water

the rails and ties.

RAISINQ A GREAT ROW.
Some Colored People Had at the Law
Rome of the colored people are rais
ins a great row about the enforcement
of the state law on the street railroad
The Union, one of the weekly colored
papers, advises the colored people to
not ride on the cars.
President Dyer informed the Union
that Ills company was forced by the
people through an act of the legislature
to pursue such a course. He said they
were getting along all right under the
old arrangement of allowing passen
gers to select their own seats, but when
the law was shoved nt him there was
no alternative for the road.
The Union says the new arrangement
Is “upon the compliant" of a few cltl
xens of the great and autocratic city
of Summerville’ 'and counsels:
' Purely as a matter of piLaetple the
colored people of this city should leave
the street cars entirely to the whites
until the hateful order is hauled down."
