On Sunday night Prosperity came
very near taking her place in the line
of fires that have been lighting up the
country. Fire was communicated to
Wheeler & Moseley's mill from "em

the building, and a serious loss came
* near being the result. Fortunately
the lire was discovered and put out be

or three pieces of wood having been
burned. This fire was purely acciden

The Good of It.
There are certain short-sighted per
sons who cannot see any benefit in
fires. Think of the workmen who
would be out of profitable employ
ment if Mollohon Block were, still
standing! A number of them are
engaged on the Crotwell buildings,
and work will be furnished for many
more when the other stores are rebuilt.
Then say that fires do no good!
The question is, Will not the labor
furnished by the rebuilding of the
stores and the building of the factory
interfere with those who depend upon
floating labor to have their cotton

OUR PUBLIC ROADS.
S TER, August 3.
To the Editor of the Ni8 and Cour
ier:-The people of this State
are much interested in Senator But
ler's discussion of the "Road Law,"
the more especially as they had
hoped with his aid to find a prac
tical solution of this vexed question.
The two prominent difficulties in
the way seemed to be: first, how to
raise the necessary means for the
repair of the highways; and, second,
in what mode this fund should be
disbursed in order to do the most
Senator Butler, in his article in
to-day's News and Courier, propose
to meet the first of these difficulties
in the following m4nner : "I should
Levy a tax of one dollar on every
able-bodied male person liable to
road duty, to be levied and collect
ed by the county treasurer," &c.
This mode would be simple
enough, but can the General Assem
bly levy such a tax ? In Section
2, Article IX. of the Constitution
it is provided: "The General As
sembly may provide annually for a
poll tax not to exceed one dollar
on each poll which shall be apelied
exclusively to the public fund.
In Section 5, Article X. it is pro
vided: * a "There shall be as
sessed on all taxable polls i; the
State an annual tax of one dollar
on each poll, the proceeds of which
tax shall be spplied solely to
educational purposes. * *
No other poll or cpitation tax
shall be levied in the State, nor
shall the amount assessed on each
poll exceed the limit given in this
In view of these provisions of the
Constitution, is Senator Butler's
scheme practicable ?
It has been decided by the
Supreme Court of this State (see
State vs. Hayne, 4 South Carolina
Reports, 403,) that a tax may be
constitutionally imposed upon '-oc,
cupations or professions," and it
may be that under this provision
the necessary means may be raised
for repairing our highways; but
Senator Butlers proposition "to
levy a tax of one dollar a head" is
hardly tenable, as the poll or capi
tation tax cannot be increased;
and. a! the property tax in South
Carolina is high enough already,
the '-occupation "tax will be the
only source of revenpe. LEX.
