CURIOSITIES OF TAXATION.
Jinny strange methods of taxa
tion have been adopted in this
country (Kiiland). The first tax
ever Imposed was the 0110 levied by
Julius Cit'sar. When this brave
warrior had subdued the warlike
races of Southern Britain, I10 or
dered tho chiefs of tlio various clnns
to send nnnunlly lo Koine a given
number of men and wild animals
the former, lie said, would bo re
tained its hostages j and the latter
would be used lor the great lights in
tho Colosseum. Hut very often the
men and tho wild animals wero put
on an equal footing, and forced lo
light witli each other in sight of the
bloodthirsty and applauding Ko
maus. When the Knglisb, in the reign of
Kdgar the Peaceable, conquered
Wales they luvied a tax on tho
Welsh. It was 11 very unique one.
Instead of a money tribute, tho
conquered people had nnnunlly to
bund over to tho English King 300
wolves' heads, n plan which in four
years, cleared their forests of these
wild animals, and thus tnoro safely
was secured both for man and do
About the Fourteenth century
another tax was imposed ; this was
the poll-tax. It consisted in tho
payment of 1 shilling annually by
everyone above the ago of fifteen.
No distinction was made; rieli and
poor were amenable to the same
amount. Great discontentment fol
lowed its imposition, and the discon
tentment spread into open rebellion.
Nothing in these bygone days seem
ed to escape taxation ; tints, wo find
at one time wool was heavily taxed.
The cause of all these demands for
money arose from the ambitions
desires of the English Kings. They
longed to rule not only England,
but France and other continental
nations as well. Taxation in kind
was also common. An English King
or General passing through any part
of England with his army could pro
vide for his soldiers and horses
simply by demanding supplies from
tho people who happened to be in
the line of his march, and for theso
provisions no money was given in
return. Labor was also taxed in
kind; laborers and tradesmen had
often to give their services gratis to
the King, and sometimes even to
the nobles. It was in this way that
many of tho great palaces in this
country were built. Windsor Castle
may lie cited as nn example.
But of all tho taxes ever imposed
on the people, the "birth-tax" was
the most odious. It lasted thirteen
years, dating lrom l(!i)o. Every
person not in receipt of alms was
required to pay 2 shillings for every
"little stranger" that came into
existence. Tho tax was a great
burden to the lower orders; but the
nobility and gentry were subjected
to still heavier payments than their
poorer neighbors.' Thirty pounds
had to be paid on tho birth of the
child of a duke. This sum gradu
al' diminished according to n cer
tain ilxed scale, until it reached 10
shillings, the amount levied on real
estate of i'jO or personal estate of
X'GOO and upward.
Contemporaneously with this
"birth-tax" there existed another
called "the bachelor's tax." It was
not a very heavy imposition, and
was probably intended to bo as
much a reminder of their duty as 11
means of "raising the wind," which
William III so often stood in need
of. As soon as n man readied the
ago of twenty-five years ho was
liable to the lax, which was one
shilling yearly till he took to himself
.1 spouse ; but it did not stop with
bachelors, and here wc think it was
unjust, for it taxed widowers with
out children. Besides tho shilling
every one had to pay an amount
according lo his rank for tho luxury
(or otherwiso) of single blessedness ;
thus a duke or an Archbishop was
amerced 111 tho yearly sum of .12
10s; an esquire, i'2 fs; 11 gentle
man, 5 shillings. Social distinc
tions wore niccry drawn then.
In the reign of Queen Elizabeth
tho English Parliament passed an
Act of Uniformity, ordering all
those who should refuse to bo Epis
copalians, or should absent them
selves from church on Sundays, to
pay a lax of 1 shilling per year. In
those days religious toleration was
at n vpry low ebb.
There is nothing British people
pride themselves so much in as their
desiro for sanitary arrangemehts
best suited for the health of tho
general community. Air, light and
cleanliness is the triad of tho re
formero. "Introduce these," say
they, "and many dilllciiltios regard
ing heath will be simplified." But
what would such ardent reformers
say if a proposition wero to arise
advising tho taxation of window
glass? The idea would bo epurncd,
yet thoro was a tune when glass was
taxed, so Unit light, free to all, did
not penetrate tho Briton's house
without being paid for. Tho tax
was a graded one, according to the
number of windows.
In the reign of George III tho
national debt of England grew to an
enormous sum. Tho almost per
sonal fight betweon Pitt and Napo
leon brought about this; nnd.lt may
be guessed to what straits tho Gov
ernment of tho day was reduced
when thoy were forced to tax funcr

A NEW PETROLEUM SHIP.
A steamer, built especially for
carrying petroleum in bulk, was suc
cessfully launched from tho works of
Messrs. Palmer's Shipbuilding Com
pany, Limited, Jarrow, in the pre
sence of a largo and distinguished
company. Tho vessel, on leaving
the ways, was named tho Era, the
christening ceremony being per
formed' by the daughter of the gen
eral manager. Tho ship has been
designed and built under tho per
sonal superintendence of Sir E. .T.
Hoed, K. C. B., M. P., tho well
known and eminent naval construc
tor, while the supervision of tho de
tail! of the work have been entrust
ed to Air. S. Hudson, of Loudon,
his chief inspecting olllcer, in con
junction with the very ablo survey
ing staff of Lloyd's Hcgistry, sta
tioned 011 the Tyiic. The principal
dimensions of the vessel nre:
Length between perpendiculars,
271 feet; moulded breadth, JJ7
feet; depth of hold to main deck,
lo feet G inches. She lias been de
signed and built so as to receive tho
class that can be obtained in Lloyd's
Kcgistcr for vessels constructed to
carry petroleum, and is capable of
carrying 2,000 tons dead weight of
oil in the compartments below the
main deck. The hull is built gen
erally of steel, although certain
parts are of iron, and is divided
into twelve oil-light divisions by
means of transverse and longitudi
nal bulkheads. The coal bunkers
at the end of the oil compartments
nre so arranged as to be capable of
carrying petroleum fuel if desired,
while at the ends of the oil com
partments double water-tight 'bulk
heads are fitted, forming water
spaces, as is usual and necessary in
this class of vessel. She is provided
with triple expansion surface con
densing screw engines, fitted with
ail the latest improvements, and of
sulllcient power to drive the vessel
nt a sliced of fully ten knots per
hour when loaded. The whole of
the machinery is fitted abaft the
petroleum compartments, so that
nearly the whole of tho remaining
portion of the vessel is avnilobla for
carrying oil, the aft and fore peaks
being fitted for water ballast. Tho
vcsel will be rigged us a three
masted schooner, and ample accom
dation lias been provided for the
olllccrs and crew. The oil pump
ing arrangements are of a very
heavy powerful and extensive char
acter, and nre capable of delivering
1,000 gallons per minute. Owing
to the well-known penetrating
power of petroleum, the greatest
care has been exercised during the
construction to ensure perfect oil
lightness. The whole of the rivets
in the shell in range of the oil com
partments hnvo been closer spaced
than usual, while in the bulkheads
double riveting has been adopted
where singlo is usually sulllcient,
and to obtain still greater efficiency
countersunk headed rivets have
been used, and the shell caulked on
the inside in addition to tho outside
caulking. Each oil compartments
has been tested with 11 pressure
equal to n 20ft. head of water above
the top of tho filling tubes, or equiv
alent to a pressure equal to a head
of water fully JlOft. above the top of
the oil compartments. Home News.
