OF INSURANCE TO AN EXORBITANT
TYo clip from our cotemporary the
" T?mr$f" the following remarks upon
a. subject of vital importance to our
fJ ho latest tyranny inaugurated i*
that of the "Underwriters Association
of the South" Insurance capital repre
senting j^ngiish and Northern Com
panies', lra? beer? bunded under n fixed
agreement to raise the percentage of
insurance to a figure which i.i u tux of
i rightful magnitude. The pakvoblo oh
j ject is to draw from the country nt
' largo, and particularly the Swish,
i-nough in premiums to compensate for
Chicago und Host on losses. Tho boi
pnee wheel oi any pystcw o( trade or j
bu&incts is legitimate competition, A
merchant cannot prosecute his business
in competition with others, if he places
an unreasonable, profit on his wares.
Nor can any app ieant fur public furor
maintain his hold exept by a system of
equal er adrautugeou' tmris. Why
then shtuld not a responsible insurance
company pursue its business independ
and of any other company. So soon as
a common tariff is adopted under the
dictation of a combined association, st
soon does each and every company be
come the tool of a mooied monopoly for
< pprcssion. It is quite os reasonable
for laborers, farm hands, mechanics,
lawyers, aud doctors to sacrifice their
personal independence to a board, which
will assess the value of their services, or
far merchants in secret conclave to
awcar nod bond themselves to put a cer
tain per ccntage on every article they
sell. This money oppression will lead
.to ? resistance somewhere least expected,
nnd is a short sighted policy. W e of
the South must rogrt t that o'upital dc
mauds so. much for its service, and
dtpiocating all monopolies, we unhesita
. Cingly denounce ft as a- bass scheme to
build up Chicago and' Iio.<tx>u with

supervision, on Sourd iy. 2Kth day of Juos,
1873, sW t'2 o'clock, M. 1 deem it ?f great
' importnncc to tbe success of onr Free Com

held in cv?ry School District in tbe State in l
that each1 School District raise a liberal
Lora' or District Serwol T<x for the snppoM

1st. Tbe Star* appropriation mads for
Free Common .School purposes, for the cur
rent focal year, is itself, insufficient lo sup
ply the educational wants of Ihn people. In
those States having the most popular, satis
factory and successful systems'of Free com
mon Schools, the schools a** alritos* wnnlly
sustained by means of Local Schnei Taxes.
2d. Tbe amount of Foil Tax collected in
each of the several School Districts is, of

port of MS Free Common Schools.
