Iik.iii Sni! I have heard lh.it it has
been stated In a public meeting hi Cairo,
that the levy of local bond taxes for
city of Cairo ami Alexander county,
for 187.1, is In excess of the amount
required to bo raised, and coiiM ipiently
Illegal, and It Is propo-ed, to take mcaf
uies to resist ltn collection.
That all parties Jinny be Hilly advised,
I wMi to lay before you a full statement
ofthe lilitory of.thi! levy and expla
nation how the same conies to be to
large, from which you will see I had no
discretion hi the matter, but could only
make the levy as 1 did make It In com
pliance with the plain provisions ol law.
Tim whole trouble "rows out ol this
kliiiMc lUct, that the bonds of the city and
county were Issued to the Cairo and ht.
Louis K. K. In IS7J, when they com
menced to bear Interest, and were regis
tered by the city ami county In 1376
with all the coupons Iroiu 1ST J attached
to the bonds, am! unpaid. The follow.
Ing statement will show how thu rate per
cent of the levy of 1-7.1 was obtained,;
In December, 1S7J, there were reals.
tered hi this olllce $0.1,000, bonds is-ucd
by Alexander county, July 1st, 1872, in
old of the Cairo and Vincennes rallro.nl,
lrawlng S per cent. Interest, payable on
the 1st days of January ami July ot each
The same amount was registered at
same time for city of Cairo.
During the months ol March and
April, 1875, there were regl'lcroil for the
county 100,000 bonds, mid tor the city
of Cairo $0.1,000 (8 per ctnt. seiiil-anniia1
Interest) bonds, dated January 1st, Yall,
ssued In aid of the Cairo and St. I.ouU
The Interest to January 1-t, 1870, In
curred on the Cairo and Vincennes
bonds having been provided for by pre
vious levies, the levy on assessment of
187.1 had to provide for one year's inter
est on C. and V. bonds, and lor all Inter"
est ou the Cairo and St. I.ouls bonds, due
and to accrue to January 1st, '77, inclu
sive. In other words, all interest which
would have to be paid before taxes col
lected on levy of 1870 would be available.

We imhll-li lids morning in another
column, a cimimuiilcalion from Ceu. C
II. I.ipiiiucott, auditor of nubile ac
counts, hi which lie gives a history of our
railroad bond taxation. It will, we have
no doubt, be read with Interest by our
citizens. We were not at the meeting in
tills city referred to by (Jen. l.ipplncott
at which the subject of the levy of local
bond taxes lor the city ot Cairo ami
Alexander county, was discussed; but
wo have been lntormed that some one as
serted at the meeting that (Jen. l.ippln
cott had wantonly levied In excess ot the
amount required to be raised. This as
sertion, if made, did manifest Injustice
to Oeu. I.lpplueott, as every one who
reads what he has written on the subjee
will al once perceive. We are sure not
one of our cili.cns would do (!en. l.ippln
cott the wrong to suspect that he exceed
ed his duly and went outside of the law
Id put an unnecessary burden of taxation
upon this community. He could have
no good reason for doing such athlng.t
ami every nnu who knows him knows
that he Is Incapable ol purposely doing
any wrong u,et, either as an ollleer or a
m ill. (ieu. Upplncott Is mistaken when
he says upon luloriiiatloii that certain ot
our citizens propose to tight the railroad
tax because It Is In excess ot the amount
required by law to be raised. They
propose to light It because llm rail
road debt was undo under u prom
ise by tin) Slate that It has not oh
served. In another column we brlelly
discuss lhe iiiestiou of the oppressiveness
of ihu railroad tux.

sible tor me to make statement of col

not tiled Ids statement or any other

ag, with the largest forfeited poperty
list (ten fold,) ever known In this cohnty.
The trustees ot the Cairo City Property
have let about three-fourths ot their lots
forfeit. The consequence will be
that you, In levying I!. 1!. Interest tax,
will have to take this fact Into con-h.er-tlon.
