COLiMBIA, S. C., May ll.-The
State Board of Equalization of ra~lroad
property met in annual scssion yester
day morning and it has com-3 back at
the railroads, in their kick against the
big raise in their assessment last, year,
by (iregarding the sworn returns of the
ollicials of the roads, and "assessing"
with a vengeance. All thii occurring
while the test. of the JegaliLy of the ac
tion taken by the board last year is still
in the courts created so ue surprise, and
has the appearance ot'"rubbing it in.'
There were very few road, to escape
the general at.l-round iaie, at d the
larger ones catch it heavy indeed. See

have replied that if the government carl
build ware houses in which to store
whiskey, there ought te he no reasona
ble objection to the Colstructionl of, ware
houses for grain and other products of'
t.armlers. Senator Cuckrell, who be.
lieved tiht the notion was an erroneous
one, sent an inquiry to the iternal rev
enue comimissloi.er, AIr. Masou, and
has rcceived the follo wing reply:
03 1"1O INTERNA l 1i- CEN UI,
V A 1I N GTON, 1). C., Alay 7, 1892
'Ilie IIn. F. M. Cockrell, United
States Senator-Sir: I am in receipt of
your letter asking whether the United
States government, out of* the govern
ment, fands, has built any ware houses
for the storage of liquors or distilled
spirits, and it so, the number of such
ware houses, when built, the cost there
of, and under what authority of law they
were construlcted. It not, to explain
who builds the bonded ware house for
distillers, how they are bonded, and
upon what te ins spirits are stored there
in and the revenue collected thercon.
In reply I would say that the United
States does not, now, and1( has neyer
built any ware houses for dist Illers for
the storage of' their liqjuors and distilled
spitrits. There is no law authorizing
the expenditure of public money for this
puirpose. All distilted spit it,s, wit, the
excep)tion of brandy dlistilledf f'rom aip
p)lcs, peaches andh grapes are deposited
ml ware houses priovided( by the dlistiller
himself. Sect,ion 3,271 of RevIsed
Statutes provides that: "Eveiry dlist.I
ier shall provide at his own exp)ense, a
ware house to, be situated On andt( to cos

repli(d. "When you think for a 1m10

remember that these Deinocrat who

HOW IT WILL STAND.
'he Allianne Can Easily Control the state
ColUMBIA, May O.-It might seem
little strange, but it would perhaps
>e an appropriate question to ask i
viether the Convention on the 18th
nstant is to be one of Democrats or
Ulliance men; whether the Democrats
.s Alliance men are going to run the
'onveition. or the Alliance men as
)vinocrats are going to have charge of
aatters? Is tho Democracy of the
onvention to be secondary to Alli. E
nee ideas, and is an Alliance or Dem- n
cratic platform to be adopted?
In the Cotton Plant of to-morrow the r
ollowing call will be published: Li
"All Alliance men who are delegates tj
o t he State Democratic Convention, i
vhich meets in Columbia May 18, are
