-The dem ad s of the war on the German

<eX a syBtem that so sharply, without distinc?

??ry service. The result ls that at present in
IPrussla all men between 20 and 30, not disa?
rmed for Bpeclal reasons otherwise employed,
.-are lo the field. It ls p/tijifijUj impressive to
?oe the deserted aspect ol German cilles. Who
does not remember the busy crowds lo the
narrow streets.of Cologne? Now they are
dead and noiseless, .with none but boys and
old men to share their space with women.
What I saw In Cologne, I also saw In other
towns. Everywhere the thews and sinews
of the male population are gone to the war,
and everywhere I found they did so with
admirable readiness. Of course such a
wholesale summoning to arms strikes heavily,
not merely individual existences, but also the
country, through the Incalculable disturbance
lt creates in industrial establishments. I have
one instance to hand which is well calculated
to exemplify this public lons. It ls known to
everyone what an enormous foundry is that
of M. Krupp, at. Essen, In Rhenish Prussia*
Nearly 8000 workmen are employed In it, and
I am informed on unexceptional authority that
of these no fewer than 1488 have had to join
their colors, to the Indescribable loss of the
foundry, as these men comprised the skilled
and absolutely lndespeusable artisans; and yet
there is no murmuring and no repining among
the Prussian population at what ls being Im?
posed on them."
A joint resolution of the General Assem?
bly, approved December 22,1869, authorizes
the levy, and collection, of a tax of three
mills on the. dollar to meet the expenses of
Charleston County for the year 1869. Thia
tax should realize at least $125,000.
While the joint resolution was under con?
sideration by the House of Representatives, it
was moved by Mr. A. J. Handier to make
the tax two mills instead of three, upon the
ground that $75,000 would be amply suffi?
cient to meet all the expenses of the year.
This statement was made upon the authority
of the chairman of the Board of County Com?
missioners. The proposed reduction of the
rate of taxation was lustily opposed by
DeLarge, who said that at least $150,000
must be raised. Mr. McLaughlin, one of
the County Commissioners, had assured him
that the county fees, funds, <fcc, would ab?
sorb $75,000, and that $50,000 was required
for repairing roads and bridges. Auditor
Tomlin son ? offered a compromise In the
shape" of a tax of two and a half mills, which
was promptly voted down. DeLarge flip?
pantly declared that the chairman of the
Board of County Commissioners knew no
more about Charleston County than the
man in the moon knew how much there was
in:DeLarge's pocket. This unanswerable
argument secured the adoption of the three
When the joint resolution reached the Sen?
ate it met with an active opposition. Sena?
tor Corbin urged that the tax be only two
mills, which amount, he said, would
be sufficient, for Charleston County, which
.'did not wish to pay all, or nearly
"all, of :he taxes as it had been doing
"heretofore." This brought Senator "Dad
"dy" Cain to his feet, who said "two mills
"on the dollar will give our (Charleston)
"commissioners S100, ooo. I think they
"can spend that. I believe that the more
"we give them the les3 work they will do.
"Out of sight of the steeples of Charleston
"they- have done little no work; in fact,
"nearly all of the work that they have done
"has been inside of the city limits. I am
"willing to give them another chance though,
"but I want them to understand that here
"after they will be watched with sleepless
"vigilance. $100,000 has been spent by the
"commissioners since last session-By the
"way, the returns of these commissioners do
"not show for what this money was spent.
"They show who received the money, but
"not for what they received it." Corbin
and Donaldson protested against the levy?
ing of three mills as "an outrage," and, on
motion, two mills was substituted. The
House refused to concur in the Senate
amendments, and a committee of conference
was appointed. This committee made a
report, in which the three mills tax in
Charleston County was agreed to, and the
report was adopted.
We have been particular in showing the
tone of the debate upon the passage of the
three mills tax, in order that it may be clear?
ly understood that the most independent
members of the Senate and House deemed a
two mills tax sufficient, while their oppo?
nents admitted that a three mills tax would
give them all the money they required. The
tax has been assessed, aad is in course of
collection. We have no reason 'to believe
that there is any unusual tardiness in pay?
ing the county tax, and yet the County
Treasurer declines to pay any of the checks
drawn upon him by the County Commis?
sioners, his excuse being that he has no
funds. Whether there is any discrimina?
tion in paying the checks we are unable to
say. It may be that the friends of the
treasurer and of the commissioners are paid,
while the general public go begging. But
even thi3 is doubtful. A diligent inquiry
gives us the names of a large number of per?
sons who are refused payment of their
. checks, but we do not hear of a .solitary one
whose check has been paid on presentation.
Indeed, some of the check-holders are told
by the treasurer that they cannot be paid
Under ordinary circumstances, and in or?
dinary times, we should be inclined to sup?
pose that some unavoidable cause had in?
terfered with ?the collection of taxes, and
bad kept the treasury empty. But no such
plea can be urged now. The tax wa3 more
than the most extravagant estimates called
for, and the taxes have been paid with the
What then is the reason why the checks
of the County Commissioners aro refused
payment by the County Treasurer ? The
facts in our possession force u3 to believe
that the cry of "no funds" is raised to de?
preciate the value of the claims upon
the county, so that the County Com?
missioners, or County Treasurer, may
buy them up at a heavy discount It is
notorious in Columbia that the Slate offi?
ciais are allowed a discount of twenty and
twenty-five per cent, upon bills against the
State, and the same result is to be reached,
in a different way, in Charleston County.
Here, the Treasurer has "no funds," the
checks upon the treasury fall to ten and
fifteen per cent, discount, and at this rate
they are quietly bought up by friends and
connections of the Treasurer and County
SENATOR SWAILS endeavored to convince the
public that he had no part in the Williams?
burg land swindle, already exposed in TUE
NBWS. A writer in the Kingstree Star brings
the charge home, and convicts the wrig?
gling Swails of something worse than negli?
gence and want of care.
The Lexington Landa.
We are informed that the Lexington lands,
:spoken of in oar issue of yesterday, were*|
Sold,to the Land Commissioner by#Mr. Gei?
ger, for $5175, which is about $2 25 an
acre. The lands are well worth this price,
although they, cannot be divided into small
tracts with advantage. Now, it is charged
that the State has been made to pay $8050
for these lands, while Mr. Geiger received
only $5175. Will any responsible member
of the Land Ring inform the public what the
State did pay for these lands ? And will any
one tell the public, whether Purvis was the
middle man who made the purchase and re?
sale, and then divided out the spoils ?
A Startling Statement.
Our correspondent informs us that Wm.
McMillan, whom Scott has appointed a com?
missioner* of election for Chester County,
wes found guilty of stealing cotton, some
months ago, and fled from the Stats. While
still a fugitive from justice, he was pardoned
by Governor Scott, and is now expected to j
return the favor, with interest, upon election
day. *. " _
