the prejudices of the English
people against America:! beef,
"A year ago American beef
could be distinguished owing to
it dark color. This, however,
is no longer the case, this dark

cloth in which it used to be en
closed. At present it is impos
sible to distinguish it from Eng

killed iu England."
XI ii t for 1ht unfairness of the
British butchers iu selling Ameri

there are not half a doiteu butch

rest being sold, at exlor'iouate

controversy. Confederate soldi
ers asserting, aud Federal soldi

assume that it would be a dis

inference of cowardice seems
rather a large deduction from so
slight a premise.. Breastplates,
shields aud armor have gencrully
beeu discarded because they ate
heavy aud obstruct au army, and
for no other reason. Romans
and Spartans wore them ; Span
iards uud French wore them ;
and it is no more cowardly for a

on than for n ship to be ironclad
or a fort to have a thick wall.

if ever armor will come into geu-

Auditor's Offich, '
JtCI'FKKSON.ClTY.Aug. 2, '70, )
ichola$ Allee, '., Attestior of
Moniteau County, California,
Dear Sih : Your letter ol
yesterday received this morning,
and, iu auswer, 1 have to say :
Sections 6 and 7, Art. 10 of the
Constitution of 1875, ure as fol
Section 6. The property, real
aud person. 1, of the State, coun
ties and other municipal corpor
ations, mid cemeteries, shall be
exempt from taxation. Lots iu
incorporated cities or towns, or
within ono mile of the limits oi
any such city or towu, to the ex
tent ot oue acre, and tots one
mile or more distant from such
cities or towns, to the extent of
five acres, with the buildings
thereon, may bo exempted lrom
taxation when the same ure used
I exclusively for religious worship
I for Ri-hnnls. in-frtr ibfirrtosps itni-f.
for schools, or for purposes pure
ly charitable : also, such prop
erty, real or personal, as may be
used exclusively Tor agricultural
or horticultural societies : Pro
vided, That such exemptions
shall only be by geaeral law.
Sec, 7. All laws exempting
property from taxation, other
than the property above enumer
ated, shall be void.
Stotiou 1, of the revenue law
of 1K72, provides that 'Muxes
shall be levied on all property
real and personal," except such
as is exempt from taxation
Section 8, chap. 118, pp. 1,159
aud 1,100, Wag. Stat. 1872 (being
see. 8 of Collated Revenue Law),
provides : "The term, 'personal
property,' whenever used iutbis
Act. shall be held to meau and
include bonds, slocks, moneys,
credits, the capital stock, undi
vided piorlts.and all other means
not forming part of the capital
stock of every compuuy, whether
incorporated or unincorporated.
The stock ot uureiies, growing
on leased lands, or ui tho hands
of nurserymen which has beeu
separated fiom the soil where
growing, and every tangible thiug
being tho subject of ownership,
whether animate or inanimate,
and not forming part or any par
cel of real property, Tho term
'property,' whenever used in this
Act, shall be held to, meuu and
j include every tangible) or iiiturt-
gible thing being the subject of
ownership, whether animate or
inanimate, real or pcrsoual."
It is unnecessary for me to
state that a growing crop is a
part of the land, anil that when
the crop is gathered, it is no long
er a part of the realty, but Is then j
personal property being Uugl
hle.aud the subject of ownership.
Under the Constitution and laws,
all personal property must be
taxed, unless it is exempted by
Hec. 6 of Art. 10, of the Constitu
tion above quoted. As harvested
crops are not exempted,'t follows
that they are subject to taxation,
and should bo assessed.
If land was worth 120 per acre,
including the cicp, it would be
worth less without the crop.'
Alter the crop is gathered, its
actual value In the condition tli.it
it was on the tl rat day of August,
should bo assessed. Wheat may
be worth 75 cents per bushel at
the mill, but standing in the
shock it may not be worth half
that much. For there Is the ex
peuse of handling, the risk of
damage by exposure, the cost of
threshing and transportation to
market, to be takcu Into cont-ider
It has been the object of this
department to faithfully carry
into execution the laws made to
govern the assessment and col
lection of the revenue. From
letters received from revenue
officers, I learned that gathered
crops have, for years past, been
assessed as personal property in
some of the comities and not so
assessed iu others. My duties
leqiiire that I Instruct assessors
as to their duties under the rev
eunelaw, so that the assessment
be uniform all over the State.
Hence my instructions on this
And, again, believing from re
presentations made to this ofllce
that lands and live stock bore
more than their share of taxation,
for the renson that other proper
ty (viz. : Monev. bonds, notes
and other invisible property) es
ouped assessment, I called the
special attention of assessors to
the matter, aud urged that a full
assessment be made. Taxation,
to bo fair and just, requires that
every dollar of capital, not ex
empi by law, be taxed.
Lust winter h bill was intio
duceil into the House of Repre
sentatives to change the time of
assessmrtit to the 1st day of
June. The mowed object of this
bill was to relieve fanners from
paying taxes on harvested crops
as personal property. (Very few
croim being gathered orcnt prior
to June 1st). This bill (lid not
become a law. The question of
taxing harvested erons as per
sonal property was fully dismiss
ed by the Senator and Uepre
SL-utatives at the last session of
the General Assembly, anil the
only opinion expressed was that
the Legislature had no power,
under the Constitution of 1875, lo
pass a law declaring that harvest
ed crops i-hoiilil be taxed us per
llie last Legislature (lid not
repeal the Act of April 13, 1877,
to provide lor the registering
and licensing of dogs," nor did it
provide any rompeiisation to as
sessors for such registration.
