The License Law&
One of the most objectionable and
oppro.ssivo Acts passed by the late
Legislature was the law requiring li
eOnCs for carrying on overy style of
business levying, thereby an addition
al Iax upon the material interests of
the country at large. An cffort was
made in Charleston to renist the pay.
ment of the license by a propoItion
to test the constitutionality of the
Act, and it would no doubt have been
done, had the State authorities tagreed
to suspend the collection of the li
eec until an appeal could be made
to the Courts.
Wc copy below an article from the
Charleston News concerning this sub
ject, which we think will prove of inw
"It is th:opinlion of counsol of high
position that the license law is as un
onstitutional as it is undoubtedly op,

ready tostand in the broach, and to

onment. But, as o0011 ats it was
known that the proseciting oficotas
Ilatly refused to suspend proceedings,
the opinion found frank amid general
expression that resistanco was usoless,
and that the payment of the license
fNes could not safely be postponed.
Even before the meeting of Monday

already taken out their licoie, some

of an outrage at Centralia, Pennsyl

A gentleman, 14. C. Greene by name,

schools at Centralia, and happened t
in course of private cotiversation to
reply vigorously to alRoash acquainr

ism, and had treated it with little.rei

cars of the priest, who forbid the
Rothish children to attend the school,
and efforts wero made to removo t
