Robbers are infesting this country
and a sharp look-out should be kept for
suspictious characters. On last Friday
night the store of V. R. Davis & Co.,
near Panola, was entered, robbed and
burned, not a dollar's worth of goods
was saved, and all of the books and pa
pers were destroyed. When Mr. Davis
who lives near discovered his store on
fire he found the entire inside in a
blaze and the front door wide open.
The theory is that after the robbers
had stolen~ as, much as they could get
away with, then fired the building to
hide their tracks. Insurance $1,300.

Biennial Session Saving.
The greatest question that will con
front the next legislature will be that
as to the finances of the state. As is
well known the revenue is not sufficient
to meet the expenses of the govern
ment, and while the expenses are
promptly paid the financial depart
ment is really a year or more behind
and is anticipating every year the col
lection of taxes in order to meet current
expenses. Something must be done to
increase the revenue or to make what
we have accomplish the same purpose,
else the levy will have to be raised or
some new system of taxation will have
to be devised. The raising of the levv
need not for a moment be considered,
for the people will not stand it and as
far as any new system of taxation is'
concerned, which would produce a
large revenue without increasing the
burden, that is all in the air. There
have been some very vague and indefi
nite suggestions along that line, but
from the present outlook nothing will
develop. The almost universal remedy
mentioned for the present condition is
to cut down expenses and practice
economy, both of which are good and
solid platforms upon which to stand,
but we have yet seen no suggestion as
to how and at what place expenses can
be cut down, or in what manner the
state government can be more econo
mically conducted than it now is.
Surelv no one in these times would
seriously think of beginning the paring
process on salaries which are now far
too small considering the -work requir
ed of officers, and the higher cost of
living as compared with former times.
Surely no one would think of taking
away a cent from the funds devoted to
education, primary and higher. We
cannot cut down the interest on the
debt, and these three things constitute
the bulk of the expenses of the state.
There is one way that about $50,000
a year might be saved, and that is to
have biennial sessons of the legislature.
The expenses of the legislature proper
may not amount exactly to the total
mention, but when all of the collateral
xpenses are added the figures will be
ound not much short' of that sum.
That would go a long ways towards
putting the state on its feet financially
nd the people would not be inconveni
enced a particle; indeed it would be a
positive advantage to them, for if there
was ever a time when there is abso
utely no need for anything but very
reneral legislation, and little of that,
now is the time. We can easily dis
pense with the legislature for one year.
That is so self-evident that it is un
icessary to advance any argument to
prove it. The "let well enough alone"
policy is peculiarly adaptable to this
tate now so far as her agricultural,
ommercial and manufacturing inter
ests are concerned. This being admit
ed, we have this state of affairs-the
tate needs money and the question is
how to get it. Here is a plan that goes
long way towards supplying a con
iderabie portion of ite-save $50,000 a
ear by enacting that there shall be
biennial sessions of the legislature. If
the members will come here next
month, pass this bill, make the ordi
nary appropriations and go home they
will have made a memorable record in
he history of the state.-Columbia

Taxpayers return what they own on
the first'day of January, 1903.
Assessors and taxpayers will enter
the first given name of the taxpayer in
full, also make a separate return for
each party for the township the prop
erty is in, and where the taxpapers
wns realty, to insert the postoflice as
their place of residence, and those who
mnly own personal property, to give the
party's name who owns the land they
jive on as their residence, which aids
the taxpayer as well as the County
Treasurer in making the collections
nd preventing errors.
Every male citizen between the ages
of twenty-one and sixty years on the
first day of January, 1903, except those
incapable of earning a support from
being maimed, or from other causes,
shall be deemed taxable polls. This
does not apply to Confederate soldiers
over fifty years of age, who are exempt.
All the returns that are made after
the twentieth day of February will have
a penalty of 50 per cent. added thereto,
unless out of the county during the
time of listing. Not knowing the time
of listing is no excuse.
The assessing and collecting of taxes
is all done now in the same year, and
e have to aggregate the number and
value of all the horses, cattle, mules,
tc., and their value that there is in
the county, and have same on file in the
Comptroller General's office by the
thirtieth day of June each year. And
from that time to the first day of Octo
ber each year the Auditor and Treas
urer's duplicate has to be completed
nd an abstract of the work in the
Comptroller's office by that time, which
will show at a glance that the Auditor
has no time to take in returns or do
nything else much, between the first
day of March and the first day of Octo
ber each year but work on the books
nd blanks. Therefore I hope that all
axpayers will do me the favor of mak
ing their returns in time.
