Tbe Burnt District.
? The rebuilding of the. Burnt District of
Charleston is of Importance to the whole
State. As long aa it remains in its present
dreary condition, the outside world will not
believe, that the city ia thriving. The ap?
pearance of active prosperity brings with
it an increase of prosperity; andlt is rather j
hard that a community, which bas made as <
much solid progress as Charleston has done,
should be cried down only because the
houses destroyed in 1861 have not yet been I
rebuilt. There is a demand for dwelling- ?
nooses suitable for persons of moderate I'
means, bot the demand ?B not sharp enough I
to warrant capitalists in running the gaunt- 1
let o? State and Municipal taxation. The I
"houses could be rented at once, withont
detriment to the houses now in tbe market, I
and capitalists and tenants are confident
that in a few years the barren acres of the
burnt district will be covered with pleasant
homes. But ve cannot afford to wait I
Every day of walting does the city some
hann. And the work cannot be accom-1,
pushed unless capitalists are offered some j
sort of premium to induce them to lay out I I
their money. This is proposed to be given 11
them in the shape of an exemption, for five I j
years, from State and Municipal taxation. I,
THE Nsws ls thoroughly In favor of offer-1 i
lng every possible inducement to those who j t
are' inclined to rebuild tbe Burnt District, j1
Bat this must be dose in such a way as to j1
avoid the infliction of loss upon any ciasB of 11
citizens. The people outside of the burnt I e
district cannot afford to pay additional 11
. taxes, for the ben e?t, of persons in the burnt I ?
district. There must not be any redaction '
in tho amount of property servlog as the
basis of taxation. And here lies the objec-1 <
tlo? to the bill now before the Legislature, li
That bill proposes to exempt from taxation, I (
focl:svpnriod of Ave years, all bondings or I '
improvements in the burnt district, and the I ^
lots of land ' upon which they may stand. 11
The vacant lots are now taxed, and will j <
continue to be taxed If no building or im- J1
pro vernen t be put upon them. The pro
posed bill, therefore, would reduce the .
amount ef taxable property ia Charleston j
by the assessed value of the lots apon which J -
any improvement might be made. The sum I j
to be raised by taxation could not be dimin
ished, and the rate of taxation, upon the I
property not improved, and outside of the
bare t district, would necessarily be increas-111
ed. This would be unfair to the taxpayers 1n
at larga. They have a right to expect that j \
there shall be no reduction in the amount of I e
taxable property, and that, at the end of I n
five- years, the taxable value of the previous
ly exempted property shall speedily make
np for the previous apparent loss.
We think that the bill before the Legisla?
ture should be so modified as to prevent, for
five years, any Increase In the assessed
valne, for tax purposes, of any property in
the burnt district, upon which houses may
be built. This would leave the tax upon a
boase abd lot at the figaro at which tbe
vacant lot is taxed. It is ?quivalent to
abott four per cent, upon the cost of the
building, and that is enough to lead capital?
ist? td put their money into the work. Take
a lot worth $1000 with a bouse worth $5000.
The tax would be only fonr per cent upon
$1000, or $40; the exemption for Ave years
belog equal to four per cent npon $5000, or
$200 a year. And at the end of the five
years the ground tax would be reduced, be?
cause the buildings throughout the burnt
district would then be taxed at their full
A Distinction, With a Difference.
We take pleasure in saying that Repre?
sentative Charles Green, of Georgetown,
did not vote for "Honest" John Patterson,
as telegraphed to THE NEWS, but plumped
for Congressman Elliott The two men,
Patterson and Elliott, are as different as
light and dark.
Tom Scott's Work.
A recent article ic the New Tork Finan?
cier suggests an explanation of the persis
taney with which Mr. J. J. Patterson plotted
and planned to secure his election as United
States- Senator. The financier showed
that the 1 ou them Security Company, the
mammoth monopoly, which is striving to
swallow the principal railroad lines io the
South and to the Pacific, contrives to enroll
among Its stockholders Influential Congress?
men from every State through which its
lines pass. The bead schemers are Simon
Cameron and Tom Scott of whom Mr. J. J
Patterson ls the disciple and bosom friend.
Hot long ago he is said to have gone North
to obtain tbe money with which to bay bis
election, and the public have a right to sup?
pose that, in the United States Senate, Mr.
Patterson will do the work cut oat for
bim, and be the willing tool of the Pennsyl?
vania Ballroad and the Southern Security
Company, lt ia related of a moral member
of the. Pennsylvania Legislature that, to?
wards the close of a profitable session, he
.rose in his seat and said : "Mr. Speaker, if
*?Tom Scott ain't got no more work for us
-"to do.I move that thia House do now ad
'joirn sine die.? Something of this tort
will be heard in the United States Senate if
many more or the Patterson stripe can buy
themselves a sent j
The Conssrv Hives In the Li eg Isl ?tare.
Tbe Conservative vote, io the election o? |
a United States Senator, on Tuesday, was BO
split np as to cou nt for nothing. There are
thirty-one Conservatives in the Legislature,*
and only by acting together can they make
their influence felt. Five of them voted for
J. J. Patterson, seven voted for Pointer, nine
voted for Judge Moses, seven voted for Saw?
yer, and three voted for Graham. Thus the
vote was frittered away. The Conservatives
may have thought that lt mattered little
which way they voted. It mattered much.
A Conservative vote gave Patterson his ma?
jority in the Senate. Who knows that a
massing of the twenty-one Conservative
votes in the House upon Graham or Moses
would not have attracted sufficient outside
votes to prevent the election of Patterson
on the first ballot? However this may be, it
ls certain that such a want of unanimity
among the Conservatives as is indioated by
their vote for senator gives confidence to
the public enemy, and disheartens the peo?
ple who look to the Conservative phalanx
for decisive and, above all, united action.
Whether the Conservatives number ten or
twenty pr thirty, their only hope of producing
any substantial effect upon the majority is j
by standing together. A score of Intelli?
gent men who cannot be Beared or bribed,
who will raise their voice when danger
threatens the State, who will be the watch?
dogs of the treasury, who will oppose only
what is foolish aod bad, and support only
what is wise and good, must have a consid?
erable moral influence in a body like the
General Assembly of South Carolina, but
that influence is lost when they show the
world that, in the face of the enemy, they
break tho line and fight each after his own
plan of battle. We sincerely hope that, in
Tature, the Conservative members will be
found shoulder to shoulder. Unless they
are, their presence le the Legislature will
certainly be of no benefit, and may be of
harm, to tho State.
