Supreme Court of Appeals ot Virginia,

CAPITAL EMPLOYED BY MER?
CHANTS IN THEIR BUSINESS 1S
EX KM PT F R O M TAXATION
EITHER BY THE STATE Oil j
This was an appeal from the decree
of the Circuit Court of Montgomery
county. Tho facts sufficiently appear
from tlu: opinion of the court. The
The question presented by this rec?
ord is, as to the power of the Board of
Supervisors ot Montgomery county to
assess for taxation for county, school
anil district purposes ihe capital of a
merchant in his mercantile business.
It is conceded that, for county pur?
poses the Supervisors can only levy
tnxes upon such properly as is assess?
ed with State taxes within the county;
that they cannot look beyond the sub?
jects of taxation provided by the Leg?
islature, ns It Is the province of that
body alone lu provide when. how. and
for what purposes a tax shall be laid,
and to provide the subjects of tax.i
'tion. The real question, then, to he de?
termined Is, does tho State assess with
taxes the capital employed by a mer?
chant in his business. The act pro?
viding for the assessment of taxes says:
"Every merchant shall pay a. license
tax for the privilege of tranacting bus?
iness In this State ? ? and then pro?
vides that the sums Imposed under and
by virtue of this section shall be In lieu
Of nil taxes, for State purposes, on the
capital actually employed by said mer?
chant or mercantile firm in said bus?
iness." It seems perfectly clear from
the language quoted that the Legisla?
ture has not only failed to declare that
the capital employed by merchants In
their business shall be assessed for tax?
ation, 'but has expressly said that It
shall not he so assessed, by declaring
that the license required "shall be In
lieu of all taxes for State purposes, on
the capital actually employed by said
merchant or mercantile lirm in Bald
The legislature has made no provision
authorising counties to assess for tax?
ation the capital employed by mer?
chants In their business; on the con?
trary it has expressly refrained from
taring said capital for Stale purposes,
nnd this determines the right of the
COUnt v to rlo no.
The policy of the state. In the mat?
ter of taxation, subject to the funda?
mental law. rests with her representa?
tives. If wrong is done the counties by
allowing the capital employed by mer?
chants in business to escape taxation,
the remedy is with the legislature, nnd
not In tho courts. Affirmed.

WEST VIRGINIA, BECAUSE sech
A CHARTER WOULD he IN EF?
FECT INCORPORATING THE
CHURCH Till', PARTH-.S UKI'ltK~
SENT, WHICH is CONTRARY to
Till'. bt AT UTES OF WEST VIR?
This was an application by Powell
nnd others for it mandamus against the
Secretary of State of West Virginia to
compel him to issue a charter.
The facts sufficiently appear from the
opinion of the court.
The court sAys:
The. question presented by this record
is whether the secretary of slate was
warranted in refusing the certificate of
Incorporation applied for by tho peti?
tioners. Can wo sanction his action un?
ifier section 17 ot article 8, which pro?
vides hat "no charter of incorporation
IsIvlII be granted to any such church or
religions denomination." or under sec?
tion :: of chapter 54 of the Code, which
prov '.es that "this chapter shall not
bo construed lo authorize the incorpor
hitinn ef any church or religious denom?
ination. ? * * The proposed corpor?
ation was to l>e known ns the "Baptist
Missionary Society of West Virginia."
Its objects, as set forth lu the agree?
ment, w.-.s to promote religion by aiding
In support of Baptist ministers engaged
In preaching the gospel, and by aiding
In tlj? erection of houses of worship,
etc.. nnd by collecting and disbursing
funds for these purposes. Now. ran we
regard this In n.ny other light than an
attempt on the par! of tl?<-> Baptist
Church to do indirectly through others
whnt tho constitution and law ex'i
ly Inhibits?"There Is no purpose ex?
pressed in tb's nerocmonl which can bo
regarded otherwise than one of the
rr'me objects of the Baptist Church. ,
The first mirprse is to promote religion i
by aiding in the support of Baptist
minister? engaged in preaching th--?|
glospcl, Tint this is one of (lie main . >?- |
jlects of the Baptist Church, and in far!
n.ny nthbr church, with respect, to its
millis - :?-!. needs no argument to. sus
ta'n it The church must have ministers,
or It cannot prosper. The next purpose
Is to nid In the erection of houses of
worship In missionary iields; and It is
nt once conceded that any denomina?
tion must have houses of worship where
Its members may assemble and hear tb.
gpqpel proclaimed: otherwise, it-= work
languishes nmi Its success Is defeated.
The last object mentioned In said - gree
ment, and perhaps not the least, has
for its purpose collecting and disburs?
ing funds for these purposes, and then
the agreement expresses the general
purpose of promotliur religion.
The law tinder which ?ds controversy
Arises descended to us from the State
of Virginia. In tho constitution of that
stale It was provided that "the general
assembly should hot grant a ch irter ot
Incorporation to any church ot- religious
denomination, hut might secure t.te
title to church property to an extent to
be limited by law and the same, in
substance, is found in the constitution
of tills state (article c. section 47). It is
not our province to pass on the pro?
priety of. the law. but to construe and
apply it as we Und lt. it Is contended
that a corporation formed for the pur?
poses set forth In the agreement signed
by tho petitioners would be neither a
church nor a religious denomination;
but If they assume the duties of the
Baptist Church in Ihelr locality, pro?
mote religion by aiding In the support
of Baptist ministers ? n raged In preach?
ing the gospel, by i Idlng In the erec?
tion of houses of worship, and by col?
lecting and disbursing funds for thoec
purposes, it makes little difference what
name they may assume; they take upon
themselves the main duties, responsibil?
ities, and avowed objects of the church,
and iluis become the right hand of the
church they represent In my opinion,
If the charter they ask for were grant?
ed, it would afford tiii,-. church and eve?
ry other church, of whatever denbml
nation', nn easy means of evading the
law, and would. In effect, be granting a
charter to the church. For these rea?
sons, the peremptory mandamus Is re?
fused, nnd the petition dismissed.
Trouscr may he yw only spring
need. The variety of our line- will
make the problem easy.

A FIGHT FOR LIFE.
CREW OP "SEABOARD'S" NIGHT
OP H( IB ROB SAVED.
Yesterday afternoon people on the
water front were surprised to see the
old steamer Seaboard, one of the first
boats of the Old Bay Line, but for
some years out of their service, corn1
up the harbor and tie up at Baugh &
Son'a wharf. She was looking slightly
out of sorts, had a portion of her st< ra
rail stove, a hole in her stern near th ?
water line and a badly smashed yawl
hanging at the stern, beside other signs
of a gi nerally lively time.
A visit to the "old acquaintance" of
Norfolkians (for she used to run from
tills port in the early days of the Sea?
board and Roanoke railroad and Hay
Line), showed the outer view to be a
comparatively calm and peaceful tine.
Captain Ralph linker, her master, had
washed up. as ho was obliged lo go
ashore to report, but the crew was dirty
and grimy, filled with strange oaths
und hungry for food and sleep; and af?
ter listening to their taJe of woe wh;ob
was extracted by an amount of hard ,
"pumping" that would have put their
boat beyond danger of sinking for a
year, their appearance was completely
accounted for as well as the condition
that went with it.
They were nearly famished, having
been without food, sleep or rest for
thirty-six hours, and In Imminent dan?
ger of foundering. Chief Mate lid waul
Rcilcy?an old side-partner of "Dyna?
mite Johnny" O'Brien, and whose life
during Cuban filibustering days would
make a novel as interesting as any
Gunter ever wrote?said that Tuesday
night, off Currituck, they practically
had a tots up as to the advisability of
tnkir.g to the boats or going down with
the vessel. They had left New York I
Monday morning, and sprung a leak
Tuesday morning, which leak gained on
thi in Tuesday afternoon; and off cur?
rituck that night the light
for their lives was a forced 1
or.e, and with all siphons going
and every man bailing and pumping,
they barely managed to keep the water
out of the grate-bars and get into this
port under their own steam. Titey, at
one time, decided to abandon the vre?. I
sei and put the yawl overboard, but
the waves knocked it to pieces, and
they then decided that they'd got to
save the Seaboard to save themselves.
They did it. but ?tlredi well, that came
near expressing it. Mate Relley com-'
pared their trip with . "Dynamite
Johnny's" experience in taking dawn
the ferry boat to Havana, nnd said he
could now give "Johnny" points.
The Sei was not extra heavy, nor the
wind a hurricane, but the vessi i was
with a eng.. of general merchandise,
low in tiie water, and the trip a trying
0110 to her. The Seaboard was built in
1874, at Wilmington, and is no spring

and bound to Mobile. Ala. She will re?

the effect that the tug carrii ?1 down all

ihat the accident must have occurred
at night, or else been so sudden?like
the folinderihg of the Bowen?ds to
