Nothing tlial has como heforo
tho present session 1ms boon re
ceded with more general sntisf ac
tion thtui tho bill o tho Minister
of Finance to nmoml tho tax law.
Mr. Damon is on tho right track
if tho tilings that lmvo mailo our
taxntion system largely a farcoaro
to be considered. It is and has
always been notorious that tho
sugar plantations have not paid
thoir duo proportion of intprnal
tax.es. owing to tho baldest species
of under valuation made by their
directorates to tho assessors.
Plantations lmvo been taxed on
valuations as low as one-sixth of
thoii hulling vnluo, nnd still km or
iu somo cases when compared with
the capital stock of incorporated
estates. AVhilo tho Ministor is on
tho right track as to his object, it
is doubtful if tho changing
of tho ditto of assessment
from tho middle to tho beginning
ot the year w ill prove it comploto
remedy. Tho principlo of taxing
tho growing or unmarketed crops,
is, in tho opinion of people who
have given thought to the matter,
not a correct ono. It is not ac
cording to tho practice of older
countries. Thoro aro sugar men
horo who donounco it. If accidont
or conditions of weather destroy
or damage tho crop before it is
harvested, aftor it has gone down
on tho assessor's books, tho ownor
loses both tho thing taxed and tho
taxes levied thereon. Also it will
have to bo proved by experience
that tho change of tinio by assess
ment will not bo met by some
fresh ingenuity for ovading an
(uloqunto valuation. Why not
lunko the abbcssmont upon tho basis
of tho entiro yield of ovory estate,
groat or small, for tho whole year
preceding tho date of assessment?
Also, assess estates at thoir full
market value, as is done in tho
uuse of small property owners?
Tho taxing of tho crop could not
bo justly regarded as an oxport
tax, to subject tho country to dis
crimination in tho United States
tariff on that ground. It would bo
virtually n taxing of thib year's
orop before a pound of it was

oxported upon tho basis of tho
crop of tho previous year. Any
wny, it is about timo that Ilawnii
managed her internal niTnirs with
out ovorlastiugly looking ovor her
shoulder to see how hor conduct
is liked abroad. All tho signs
now indicato that this do
pondont ottitudo will provo tho
cattso of provonting theso isl
ands from having cablo connec
tion with tho outsido world for an
indefinite period. Lot tho snmo
factor not now intorvono to pre
vent wliolesomo legislation upon
internal affairs which is loudly
domanded by tho circumstances of
tho country and interests of jiist
and equitable government.
When tho Logislatnro asks for
information on any subject, the
Government, according to all par
liamentary practice, is supposed
to comply unconditionally with
tho request. AVhon tho Min
istor of Finance, therefore, tho
other day stated that tho informa
tion ho laid before tho Senate in
regard to tho assessment of corpo
rations was confidential, ho was up
on untenable ground. Everything
that comes before tho Legislature,
except in oxocutivo sessions of tho
Sonn'o, ought to be public proper
ty. It is tho privilege of a Min
ister to rofuso information for
"state reasons," but, w hen ho does
give information in open session
of either branch of the Legisla
ture, thoro is no recognized rulo
whereby ho may suppress the pub
lication of tho intelligence. In
the caso in point tho Minister seem
ed to screen corporations from
tho searchlight of publicity, al
though if thoro is ono thing of
which tho general public is jea
lous it is corporate capital. Mr.
Damon probably "did not think,"
as ho hos always been a stickler
for having public uffahs exposed
to the full light of day. Ho will
lmvo to make a few moro mistakes
like tho ono horo criticised bofoio
ho becomes liable to bo accused of
boing afraid of corporations. Tho
foregoing was written before tho
Advertiser of this morning was
printed. That paper takes tho
ground that tho public has as
much right to see tho assessment
rolls as has tho Sonato committee.
It, howovor, oxplains that tho Min
ister of Fiuanco "made known his
readiness to mako public tho fig
ures referred to, if tho Senate
called for them." According to
this tho figuios wore not given to
tho piess mon because tho Sonato
as a body folt a tender regard for
tho sensibilities of corporations.
By tho way, what authority wus
it, many moons ago, which gavo
to a newspaper the compaiativo
ratings ot republican and royalist
individuals and corporations, to
onablo such newspaper to illus
trate to tho world tho claimed
strongth of tho cause it was advo
Thoro is a good law on tho
statuto books requiring copart
nerships to registor in tho Interior
Department, that tho public may
know tho nnmes aud rosidonces
of tho moinbors of tho firm, tho
nature ot tho business, tho firm
name and tho place of tho busi
ness of tho copartnership. (Chap.

law either by firms or by tho Ex

Mongolians. Thoro are hundreds
of small copartnerships engaged

failed to register as required and
who frequently fail in business
and tho names or whereabouts of
tho members cannot bo determin
